Looking for a list of the best halal hotels in Phuket? Then look no further.

In this post, you will discover a collection of the most incredible Phuket halal hotels & resorts for your trip.

I have spent several years living in Thailand, with a large portion of that time in the tropical island of Phuket.

During my time there, I had the pleasure of visiting dozens of hotels, resorts, and villas. Although most of the properties provided great service, some were not ideal for Muslim travellers.

That’s why I have put together this list of vetted halal hotels and resorts in Phuket, as from my experience it’s all you need.

Overview of Phuket, Thailand

Phuket is a beautiful island province with a wide range of picturesque beaches, incredible ocean views, and bustling towns. It is Thailand’s largest island and is nestled between 32 smaller islands that can also be explored.

The scenery does not stop there, with 70% of Phuket covered in luscious green-topped mountains, supplying uniquely stunning views.

It is a wonderful holiday spot for anyone looking for a taste of the tropics, as well as fascinating culture and adventure.

What does Phuket offer?

Phuket offers numerous Muslim-friendly hotels that make optimal use of these highlights. Offering water sports and local cultural experiences which makes it positively ideal for Muslim couples, families, and solo explorers.

If you’re interested in Thai culture, Phuket’s Wat Chalong is one of the most important temples in the area and is ideal for observing Phuket’s spirituality.

For shoppers and foodies, Chillva is a halal night market in Phuket which offers souvenirs and local halal street food in a trendy setting.

If you’re a history buff, head over to Old Phuket Town. Here, you’ll discover the unique blend of Sino-Portuguese architecture, offering an unexpected and fascinating experience.

Is Phuket Muslim-friendly?

Phuket is unquestionably one of the most Muslim-friendly destinations in Thailand. In this one province alone, you can find over 50 mosques and hundreds of delicious halal restaurants.

As a result, finding halal food in Phuket is super easy as most restaurants and hotels will serve it.

And of the entire Muslim population in Thailand, 35% of them live in or near Phuket. So you can rest assured that everything available is held up to the high standards of the Muslim locals.

In this post, we will cover just 11 of the available Phuket halal hotels in this region but there are so many more, each catering to a different need and style.

These include beachside resorts, central city hotels, and private-pool spa retreats. Also worth noting is how willing the hotels are to accommodate any requests you might have, such as removing alcohol from the rooms.

When looking into places to take a halal holiday in Thailand, Phuket is undoubtedly one of our top recommendations!

Although not every single hotel in Phuket is ideal for Muslim travellers, there are a wide variety of hotels which are.

Muslim-friendly accommodation in Phuket is generally easy to find as long as you know where to look.

At Rooh Travel, we personally assess each hotel and resort we work with to ensure they meet certain standards for our travellers. If you’re wondering what to look for in a Muslim-friendly hotel in Phuket, discover below some things to consider:

  • Halal food
  • Alcohol-free property or alcohol removed from room
  • Mosque nearby
  • Private swimming & spa facilities
  • Muslim-friendly atmosphere & location

The last point is worth keeping in mind as to screen a property’s atmosphere and location it’s important to know the destination well.

Thailand is known for it’s nightlife, and although it can easily be avoided, it’s best to avoid hotels that are located in or near the nightlife districts.

Best time to go on a Phuket halal holiday

Thailand weather chart

With 2 main diverse weather seasons, choosing the best time to visit Phuket is crucial for holiday-goers. From around May to October it is the rainy season. Although this period boasts cheaper hotel rates and fewer tourists, there is very heavy rainfall almost daily.

During this time, the beaches are not as inviting, and getting around can be extremely difficult.

However, Thailand has so much to offer even during this period. You will find almost everything you want to do will still be available, just remember to pack your raincoat.

The main time for tourists to visit is December to January when the weather is slightly cooler for the winter season but can still reach temperatures over 30°C. This makes it ideal for escaping the cold of home but does come with higher hotel prices and more tourists.

Although for sightseeing and tourist trips, this dryer weather from November to April is the optimal period and you will have an easier time during your trip.
