Originally named Phuket Arcadia, this one of the very first hotels on Karon Beach was rebranded to Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa under Hilton International’s management in 2004.

After the rebranding, the whole area was much renovated and additional structures were built on the 195-rai property. This is the biggest hotel on Phuket Island, notably offering the accommodation of 685 rooms and full event and meeting facilities. In addition, as it covers such a vast area, the hotel significantly offers almost everything you can possibly need, from beautiful natural surroundings to various hotel facilities. You just don’t have to go anywhere else. Still, on the same beach, Hilton Phuket Arcadia is neighbored by several hotels and other attractions which are easily accessible by foot.

The layout of the hotel’s three guestroom wings is really unique. Each wing is in partial circle and located near each other, forming a compound of curved buildings. Moreover, all guestrooms open off the single corridors, giving guests much clearer views of either Phuket Sea or landscaped tropical gardens, or both.

Another characteristic of this resort-style hotel is its three pools located around the area: Lost Horizon Pool (featuring springboard and small pool, nearest to the beach), Garden Pool and Seafarer Pool (each featuring split level swimming areas with whirlpool waterfall and slides). Besides the meander-shaped pools, guests will even more feel surrounded by water with fresh-water lagoons around the hotel and the sea nearby.

Hilton Phuket Arcadia gives its guests the close touch to natural surroundings as well. Here, you can take a walk around the area through beautifully landscaped gardens and on the red wooden walkways across the lagoons.
This hotel offers several types of guestrooms. However, we’d like to present Deluxe Plus Room in particular. This type of accommodation is quite spacious. Each is mainly decorated with dark-colored wood. Besides, each Deluxe has a terrace facing the sea. Nevertheless, some rooms might have pool or garden views instead of seaview, because of those blocking trees, seemingly preserved by the hotel. One of the distinguish feature of each room is that it is equipped with a painted wooden sliding door, set between the bed area and bathroom. If this door is opened; a guest can, from a tub inside the bathroom, look through the bed area to the scenery outside the glass window. Moreover, each Deluxe Room features in-room multipurpose table. Impressingly, this oval wooden table can be rotated to create more space as desired.
“Thai Thai” opens in the evening. The restaurant offers the ambience of luxury and elegance in its interior and cuisine. “Thai Thai” does not wholly represent traditional Thai food, interestingly giving a mix of Thai and Western characteristics. What’s more interesting is that, here, the food is not served altogether at the same time like in general Thai restuarants. Each dish, elaborately decorated, is served one by one as a course according to Western serving etiquettes. For example, Tom Yum Gung (famous Thai sour and spicy shrimp soup) is served seperately as a soup.

And don’t miss “Sails”, where you can enjoy all-day dining. Both buffet and a la carte menus are served. You can have buffet lunch at Baht 550++ and buffet dinner at Baht 850++. Moreover, special Sunday Brunch is offered every Sunday with a variety of food and wine.

But if you want to have some light meals, snacks and a cup of fine coffee or tasty juice, go to “Caffe Cino”. This outlet offers an array of pastries including various cakes and sandwiches. “CafeCino” is equipped with internet cafe as well.

Last but not least, have a drink at “Andaman Lounge”, open bar located near the lobby. While taking a sip from your selected drinks, you can be entertained by live Thai traditional music or live band performance from the stage nearby.
As its name, “Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa”, don’t forget to get the hotel’s spa experience. The spa here is a Thai-style featuring several grand spa villas. Set amongst landscaped gardens, this spa makes you feel surrounded by lush greenery. In front of each villa is noticeably located little pool. The interior of each spa villa is mainly made from dark-colored wood, and the lighting inside is intentionally subdued in order to really rest the customers’ eyes.
Believe it or not, you will easily fall asleep even during the massage. After taking the spa menus (including body scrubs, body wraps, body massage, and facials) inside each villa, customers can have a breath of fresh-air and experience natural surroundings while bathing outdoors.
The hotel is direct to “Beach Road”, connecting Patong, Karon and Kata beaches together. Although it is set apart from the hotel, Karon Beach is just a few steps across the road. Karon is one of the most famous beaches in Phuket and another charm of Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa. Guests can enjoy various beach activities including surfing (even though Karon’s surfs are quite small and not much good for this kind of sports). Moreover, this beach is another good place in Phuket for the popular kite-surfing.
Don’t be worried about crowded, noisy beach as Karon has been zoned after the 2004 tidal waves incident. The beach seems more spacious and less crowded. Beach chairs are arranged in order, with umbrellas of the same color, looking clean and tidy.
