Indoor activities to do in Patong during hot weather

21 March 2019

Fun Ways to Cool off in March at a Hotel in Phuket, Thailand

When you stay at a hotel in Patong Beach during the month of March, early mornings and early evenings will be the best times to enjoy sporting activities like tennis and golf. That’s because the hottest months of the year are between the months of March through May.

During the afternoons, your time is better spent at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket pursuing more leisurely indoor activities like making an appointment at our own Tea Tree Spa to enjoy an afternoon of pampering spa treatments in air-conditioned comfort. For kid’s, they can enjoy a day of arts, crafts and games at our ever-popular Kid’s Club, which is also air-conditioned so they can enjoy their activities in cool comfort.

Enjoy a mid-day meal at any of 4 dining experiences or laze away the day enjoying conversation or a good book and a cool drink at the The Bar, which offers a full range of cocktails, wines and beers along with refreshing juices, snacks and light meals to help you beat the heat.

But getting out and exploring Patong also turns up some attractive alternatives to provide kids with fun activities and allow parents to take in some shopping at the same time.

Largest Mall in Patong Beach

Take the family on a short ride to Jungceylon, the largest and best-known shopping mall in the city. Along with plenty of shopping and dining choices, your kids will also be able to enjoy some indoor activities that will have them forgetting all about the beach and the sunny weather of Phuket.

There is a trampoline park in the shopping mall as well as virtual reality flight and driving simulators, a 3D theatre, a 9D virtual reality ride and a mirror maze. For movie fans, take in the latest blockbuster film at the SF Cinema.

Treat the whole family to an afternoon of bowling in the air-conditioned comfort of the bowling alley at Jungceylon.

Your younger family members will be delighted with the Japanese indoor amusement park at the shopping mall called Molly Fantasy where they can frolic amid their favourite cartoon characters in cool comfort.

As the day lengthens and the temperatures start to cool, early evening is the perfect time to head back to the pool at the Holiday Inn hotel and spend some time lazing under an umbrella with a tall, cool drink and watching the kids splash around in the refreshing and crystal-clear waters of the large swimming pool while you relax under the palm trees.

As the sun sets, take the family out for a walk along Beach Road to enjoy a spectacular sunset and an ice cream while you decide on plans for the evening.  

Spend the Morning at the Water Park…

The following morning, you can beat the day’s heat by arranging for an early departure to Splash Jungle Water Park where you can all enjoy the rides, slides, pools and a morning spent in the refreshing waters of Phuket’s largest and most exciting water park.

When the kids are all worn out and as shrivelled as prunes, dry them off and announce that you have a very special treat for them.

and the Afternoon Beneath the Waves

The Phuket Submarine offers five dives daily into the deep waters off of Southeast Phuket. This exciting submarine is fully air-conditioned, offers 72-centimeter viewing ports, plus LCD screens of all the views outside the submarine.

The submarine trip takes approximately 2 - ½ hours, in which your family will enjoy views of soft corals and colourful, tropical fish. You’ll be 30 metres under the hot weather of Phuket cruising along in air-conditioned comfort.

There are plenty of indoor activities to enjoy in and around the island of Phuket, Thailand as well as Patong Beach. Make your booking to enjoy all that the island has to offer when you stay at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket hotel.

The whole family will love their stay on the island and be head over heels with all the amenities and ways to beat the heat offered by the Holiday Inn.
