We kick off the list with a place that won’t be a hidden gem much longer, Central Phuket’s Floresta wing. The THB 20 billion redevelopment of the former CentralFestival Phuket opened in September which means many returning visitors may not realise it’s open. The Floresta wing of Central Phuket features lush, indoor green spaces in addition to a range of shopping options.

Phuket Yacht Haven Marina

The Royal Phuket Marina is the gold standard for sailing in Southern Thailand, but Phuket Yacht Haven Marina has built a reputation as being a great alternative. For starters, it’s only ten minutes away from Phuket International Airport making it an ideal base for overseas skippers wanting to get out on the water right away. Additionally, Phangnga Bay and a number of beautiful islands are a short journey away by sea.

Phuket Yacht Haven Marina has deep-water access and can currently accommodate 320 vessels. The MSI, MTC and Marinteck pontoons have all been built to Australian international standards.
