Phuket Good hotel / Resort Promo Recommendation
going Phuket with my family (4 months to 60 yo). Anyone has any recommendation on resort offers? Most online offers don;t differ much from usual prices. I am looking for deals like usual $300 , now $150 type , not usual $120, now $80 kind. I reckon if i don't go for those top hotels now, I won;t be able to afford when they normalise the rates.

Check out Banyan Tree to see if they still runs the promo. In Feb, you get 3N stay at US$100/n (Based on stay 2 night 1 night free), when normal you pay about US$300/n as it's all villas. March i think is US$150/n(Based on stay 2 night 1 night free).
It's absolute wonderful esp if you can afford the pool villa with a private swimming pool, which i stayed for 3 Nights back in August last year.
Alternative, you can try Marriot, which is a wonderful hotel thats far away from other hotels. Not sure abt their promo though

where did you get that promo from? I understand banyan tree prices typically run in the few thousands US.

check out silkair promos (with Tradewinds) if they're still on. they were bundling hotel stays with return flights for less than the cost of the hotel. e.g. I was able to get 3 nights stay at a reasonably good hotel plus return flights and transport to and from airport at just $200 per person (before airport taxes).

tks for the phi phi link. We are on Tiger Airways and she has early departures. If I were on a 4 day trip, then it would be perfect. I just need to spend a nite in phuket before flying back.....
