2 week Phuket, Thailand Itinerary with a Baby

thewelltravelledfamily Karon beach Phuket

We spent 2 weeks in Phuket, Thailand with our then 7 month baby. After visiting Thailand several times before, holidaying with a baby was certainly something different! We mixed things up by changing hotels and staying at 3 different locations on Phuket.


Day 1 – 4: Naithon Beach. We stayed at the Pullman Phuket Arcadia (super kid friendly!)

Day 5 – 10: Patong Beach. We stayed at the Avista Hideaway Phuket Patong (outside of the busy area)

Day 10 – 14: Karon Beach. We stayed at Avista Grande Karon Beach.


We were unsure about how it would be travelling with a baby to Thailand. Would it be too hot for him? How difficult is it with a baby on formula? We had so many questions but we were willing to just give it a go!

Naithon Beach

We really enjoyed how quiet Naithon Beach was! We only wished we had longer to spend at this beautiful resort and beach.

Patong Beach

When you think of Phuket, most people do immediately think of Patong. It is ‘the’ place to go if you’re interested in bars, clubs and nightlife. There is plenty to do at Patong during the day as well, but if you’re looking for somewhere quiet, relaxing and a beautiful beach – I would recommend going somewhere else – Naithon or Karon would be a better choice if you are wanting to stay at Phuket.

The best thing that Patong is great for when travelling with a family, is the supermarket inside Jungceylon Shopping Complex. You can pick up nappies, wipes and anything else you need at a much cheaper price than the local corner shops. The locals shop here!

Karon Beach

We loved it at Karon Beach as well. The hotel we stayed at was really beautiful and super relaxing. I liked that we could walk over to the beach, enjoy a nice meal or even walk to Kata Beach and enjoy a lunch or dinner on the beach.

It is a much quieter beach than Patong but busier than Naithon.
