Recreation & Facilities

The Holiday Inn Resort Phuket pairs the excitement of Patong Beach with adrenalin-fuelled leisure activities. Plan a fun family adventure, enjoy a lazy day by the pool or join one of our excursions and see what Phuket’s got to offer. Not only are we steps away from vibrant Patong Beach, we have got plenty of activities for the whole family right here on site. We have four swimming pools to splash around in, including a special kids’ pool with waterslide and fountains, a Kids’ Club with a daily schedule of exciting activities, and a long list of excursions and family-friendly fun to keep travellers of all ages entertained. 


When it comes to a tropical island holiday nothing compares to lounging around a beautiful swimming pool, and we have four to choose from at the Holiday Inn Resort Phuket. There is even a dedicated pool for kids, so they can splash around to their heart’s content.

In the Main Wing, you will find an expansive free-form swimming pool framed by coconut palms and exotic flowers, with a shallow toddlers’ area featuring water spouts and sliders. Older children will love the separate kids’ pool which has plenty of shade, whale and turtle fountains, a fun slide, and direct access to the Kids’ Club.

*Please note that Busakorn Wing pools are for the exclusive use of Busakorn Wing guests.  If you wish to use the Busakorn pool, please make sure to book a Busakorn Studio Room.

The Busakorn Wing has two additional swimming pools for the exclusive use of Busakorn guests. The largest is lagoon-style and fringed in frangipani trees, stone statues and lush foliage. Make sure to swim up to the pool bar where mixologists will whip you up a fruity cocktail, or relax and unwind in the large Jacuzzi Pool. Guests in the Villa Access Rooms also enjoy access to the Villa Pool direct from their private decks. 

Please note that guests are responsible for their own safety in the pool areas. While periodic patrols take place, these areas are not supervised by lifeguards and children must be supervised at all times.

Beach Activities

Who are looking for more than just a crazy night out can also enjoy other activities at many of its fun venues including parasailing, banana boat, play beach volleyball or soccer or just lie back on the sand to see the sunset and enjoy the view.


Nightlife comes to life once the sun sets. The Bangla road is closed to vehicle traffic and becomes a 400 metre festival of neon lights, loud music and cheap beer.  

Over the years, the center of interest has been moving up and down Bangla road depending on seasons and popularity but the ever changing face of Patong nightlife is definitely worth a look.

Phuket is a world-class golf destination, with eight courses offering unique play, stunning landscapes and challenging play for beginner and experienced golfers. Many of the courses and nearby hotels ensure that accompanying family members rarely complain about being left to laze by the pool or on the beach. The number of courses on the island is growing and they are well-maintained and constantly being upgraded. 

Team Building

Whether or not you and your colleagues enjoyed the experience, what happened when your team members returned to the office? The idea is to perform various activities that are both fun and challenging, and that also have the “side effect” of building teamwork skills that can help improve employee performance and productivity at the office. A team that works well together is more effective, more productive, and more successful.
