Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa
To navigate interactively click&drag on the image above More Virtuatours...
Originally named Phuket Arcadia, this one of the very first hotels on Karon Beach was rebranded to Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa under Hilton Internationals 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 dont 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 hotels 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, wed 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.
Considered the biggest hotel in Phuket, Hilton Phuket Arcadia features various on-site restaurants, especially those ethnic ones. Lets start with Bangles. The outlet is direct to Beach Road. Its interior looks contemporary with a mix of Indian and Western styles. Its decorations and lighting are mainly orange red-colored. Bangles offers savory Northern and Southern Indian dishes.

However, Northern Indian food is more hightlighted due to its more popularity. Master Chef Md.Latif, supervising all the cooking at Bangles, kindly told us that fresh coriander, ginger,
ginger garlic paste and various Indian spices are needed as the main ingredients in every Northern Indian dish. Anyway, our first recommened dish is Dum Ki Chap. Lamb chops will be marinated with Indian herbs before being cooked in steam pot for a long time for tenderer and less stinky meat. Then, another dish from lamb is Ronack E Seek. This is a lamb-minced kebab made of lamb mince mixed up with Indian aromatic spices, such as peppers, before being skewered and roasted. For fish lovers, Sarso Maki Tika is another interesting choice. It is a Salmon Tika, salmon marinated in spices and yoghurt before getting skewered and roasted as well. After done with meat dishes, try Aam Ki Lassi, popular sweet beverage from Southern India. It is like mango smoothie blending with Indian yoghurt, a cold drink good for quenching thirst. Here, guests can dine inside or out on the open-air terrace overlooking to a fresh-water lagoon, and have a seaview at the same time.

If you want to try fresh seafood, Neptunes is available all day long. This outlet features a wide selection of seafood with much Chinese influence in cooking style. Guests can also dine on the open terrace overlooking to one of the hotels fresh-water lagoon. In addition, the interior design of Neptunes impressively gives a feel of underwater world, making you feel like sitting in a wreck somewhere under the sea.

The next one is Thai Thai, open 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. Whats 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 dont 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 700++. 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, dont forget to get the hotels 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 Karons 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.

Dont 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.
