Getting Here


Although Phuket is an island, getting here is very easy. The majority of tourists arrive through Phuket International Airport (HKT), which is well connected to the region and the world, with a number of scheduled, and charter flights from Europe and around Asia, many of them direct.

However, the majority of visitors still fly to Bangkok first, where there are over a dozen domestic flights to Phuket daily. With the growth in budget airlines such as Nok Air, Air Asia, Bangkok Airways and Orient Thai Airlines, ticket prices are now very low. There is also the national carrier Thai Airways, which is slightly more expensive but offers a higher level of service.


Flights from Bangkok take about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Book your tickets early, especially during the high season from November to April.


Phuket International Airport is situated at the northern end of the island about 45 mins drive from Phuket City. Tel: +66 (0)76-327-230 (information counter is extension 1111 or 1122).


We are able to organise a private car and driver for your stay, or just a car if you prefer to explore the island on your own. Please enquire with your concierge for the charges involved.
