It’s summer, everywhere in Thailand is completely open for both international and domestic flights, everyone’s Instagram feeds are ready and circulating with photos of food, beaches and food on me the beach. However, you can only take so many #beersbythebeach angles or selfies in the same bars until things start to look, well, boring. Enter: the Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong Beach Resort, which offers five (yes, five) equally elegant dining venues as great food as their views. Nestled in a crescent-shaped bay along Phuket’s gorgeous Patong Beach, the resort features a variety of rooms and suites including pool access rooms with private balconies, state-of-the-art in-room amenities as well as an expansive fitness center, two outdoor pools, and a suite Artworks by local artists are scattered throughout and give the whole place a gallery feel.
As for restaurants, consider the leanest, most tender cuts of meat and seafood marinated and grilled to perfection, signature fizzy cocktails to calm you while you relax (or even inPoolside, stacked burgers and sandwiches that exude flavor.
The food range ensures that vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else with specific dietary needs or preferences will still have plenty of options no matter where you choose for dinner (no sad and boring salads!). The resort’s kid-friendly facilities, including a family suite and kids club, also make it an ideal destination for a big family reunion, especially since there are plenty of burgers, sandwiches, and snacks that will please even the little ones.
For a bit of fun, here are some of our favorite shows from each of the different venues:
Chow Lei’s Kitchen

You won’t find a better place to start your day than Chao Leh Kitchen, which prides itself on being the best breakfast buffet in town with a daily rotating menu. We’re talking fresh, organic eggs cooked just the way you like it, sweet classics like pancakes and French toast, plus savory options including congee and khao phad. And you should try the Curry Crab Omelette and Eggs Benedict at least once during your stay (although we bet you’ll want to have it more than just once).

Hungry, but not in the mood for a full sit-down meal? The Lobby Bar in the hotel’s lounge is the perfect place for a quick dose of caffeine or an iced beer, including a selection of the best drinks in Phuket. Although there is no menu, the food selection at the Lobby Bar rivals that of trendy coffee shops. Snack options include avocado tempura, fried to perfection, and since we’re on the beach, there’s of course also fish and chips from Chang Beer. For something a little more filling, there’s the signature Four Points burger, as well as the vegan tofu burger and creamy spinach wrap.

No beach resort would be complete without a pool bar, and the resort at Four Points by Sheraton Phuket Patong is ready to serve up any beverage your heart desires. Check out beers from all over the world including the Philippines, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan, or if you want to drink and support local brands, there are also a large number of local beers and craft beers. If you’re sick of plain wine, whiskey, and classic cocktails, why not try one (or all!) of their signature cocktails? We’re particularly intrigued by Ya-Nud’s treat featuring tequila, crème de cassis, basil syrup, roasted spiced pineapple, cha-cha cognac with a blend of cognac, apple, candied ginger, apple, and some faded beer.
The Deck Beach Club Patong

An oceanfront beach club just minutes from our hotel room? Yes, please, obviously, thank you! Sip a mojito or a Moscow mule while taking pictures of unparalleled ocean views. For those not in the mood for alcohol, a variety of milkshakes, scented fruit juices, and several hot and iced coffees and teas are also available.
But don’t let the “Beach Club” in the name fool you – The Deck is also the perfect spot for a beautifully lit sunset dinner. We start with a spicy Thai beef salad or an appetizer of Andaman Chili Calamari, followed by cold sea bass and dill or a delicious Thai pork cheek served with a side of papaya salad and steamed rice. For dessert, nothing beats sticky black mango rice topped with coconut ice cream.

When we say that the Waterfront Sears & Co. She has it all, we mean she has it AllIndoor and outdoor seating including a breezy shaded garden, a number of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, local comfort foods like Chow Chi Head Group and grilled chicken marinated in a variety of Thai spices as well as modern dishes like Thai T-Bone steak or bread Southern Thai-inspired flat chicken with pineapple phuket and coriander chili. Western options, of course, are also on the menu: fresh warm pretzels with a spicy peanut dip and a 300gm char-grilled tomahawk steak burger especially speak to our souls.
