Whilst doing research for my upcoming wedding in Phuket, I came across so many gorgeous hotel and villa options. Since I can only have one wedding ceremony at only one venue, I decided to not let my research go to waste by sharing this list of super Instagrammable accommodations in Phuket (less than 2 hours flight away).
So, if living it up luxuriously on a whim over a weekend trip is on your bucket list, then this list of affordable private infinity pool suites and villas might help you finally make that decision. Ready your ShopBack account (they have amazing rebates for travel and leisure), your credit card and get ready to book your next amazing getaway.
With plenty of insta-worthy lounging areas (various seaside restaurants, poolside bar, and lounge pool) throughout the resort, one actually might not need a private pool after all. The room may not come with a private pool, but for the price, I think a open-air jacuzzi works too.
Rates start from SGD 84 for a Sea View Studio and SGD 174 for a Honeymoon Suite
Want exclusivity yet close access to the beach? This is the villa for you. Situated in a tranquil gated community, each private villa has absolute privacy. Go in large groups and book out adjoining villas and have a bbq feast along the pool deck.
Rates start from SGD 96 for a One Bedroom Deluxe Pool Villa
If you are the kind that would love to just roll into the pool from bed, the Sala Phuket Resort & Spa is just your type of accommodation. With private pools just at the door of your bedroom, you can easily jump into the pool to wake yourself up in the morning.
And can I say, I just love their free standing bathtub beside the pool in their Pool Villas, it makes such an instagrammable backdrop. ❤
And the best thing is the price. Affordable luxury what is there not to love.
Uniquely different from most of the other Phuket resorts, Villa Zolitude is located within the enclaves of the Phuket forests. Set amongst a lush green forest canopy, this all pool villa resort blends comfortably into the peace and quiet of nature.
For anyone tired of the typical beach holiday but still want to experience the same 5 star luxury experience on Phuket, this is definitely the place for you.
Rates start from SGD 191 for a Tropical Pool Villa
Yet another villa resort with private pools, Bandara Villas Phuket is situated at the more secluded and private area in Phuket. Lesser people usually means, clearer waters and cleaner sand. That is if you will leave the comfort of your room and the convenience of your own private infinity pool.
Rates start from SGD 215 for a Pool Villa with Ocean View
Situated at a winning location on the sunset side of the Andaman Sea and the pristine Natai Beach, you will be able to view the gorgeous sunset sets from your very own private pools.
I can totally imagine lounging away afternoon afternoon on the beautifully designed lounge pads on the common pool overlooking the beach as well. Can you?
Rates start from SGD 217 for a Grand Deluxe Pool Villa

For people travelling in large groups, it helps to pool your travel budget and get a super bad-ass villa to stay in. I’m not talking about the one bedroom kind, but the 4/5/6 bedroom kind. The kind that will make you forget your lifestyle back home, and you can pretend to live like a millionaire for a day or two.
With everything you can imagine, from upsized pools, jacuzzis, dining rooms, game rooms and some times even in-house theatres, your party will have a blast!
The contemporary design of the Naka Phuket never fails to get my heart aflutter each time I stare at its photos (despite already having locked down a venue).
Look at the gorgeous cantilevered structures that overlook the sea, private infinity plunge pools that seem to blend into the horizon, and tell me your heart is not fluttering too? Maybe I should honeymoon here?
Rates start from SGD 424 (for a 1 Bedroom Pool Villa with breakfast)
