The Phuket Hotels For Islands Sustaining Tourism

The Phuket Hotels Association

The Phuket Hotels Association is dedicated to promoting the island as a quality destination for international travelers from all walks of life.

Today, the Phuket Hotels Association has over 60 members comprising small boutique hotels to large international chains who have joined together to promote the island as Brand Phuket, to raise money to educate local Phuket residents though the association’s scholarship fund, and also assist and educate with the environmental best practices to reduce any harmful impact that tourism has on the island


Using the combined knowledge and resources of the Phuket Hotels Association the environmental committee is to assist member hotels and also our partners in reducing the negative impacts of tourism on the island, looking at recycling, reducing waste, and many other ways to keep Phuket amazing for now and for generations to come.


As an association through fundraising activities, we aim to fund local Phuket residents through hospitality scholarship, so we are able to put back into the communities that we live and work in. We will hold annual events through the generosity of our members, member hotels and our partners to raise these funds.

Brand Phuket

Working with local government, Thai Tourism Authority and independent design companies the Phuket Hotels Association has been working towards creating Brand Phuket to highlight uniqueness of Phuket and showcase the overabundance of activities and experiences that the island has to offer.
