While Nai Harn Beach itself has only a few mid- to upper-range places to stay, less expensive accommodation is available just off Nai Harn Beach. If you want to give one of Phuket's more remote beaches a try, head out to Ao Sane.

Nai Harn Beach

The hotels clustered at the northern end of Nai Harn beach tend to be pricey. Some decent midrange options can be found inland.

All-Seasons Resort
Midrange - 1,500B to 4,000B
14/53 Moo 1 , Nai Harn Beach
T: (076) 28 9333

If travelling to Nai Harn with kids in tow, this is where you will want to head. The lobby and restaurants are bright and colourful but nothing fancy. Rooms are in a longhouse which give them a package tour feel, but they're nevertheless bright and spacious. The superior rooms are similar to the standards except that they have a partial seaview and a small terrace. All of the rooms are... Read our full review of All-Seasons Resort.

Nai Harn On The Rock
Backpacker - Under 600B
11/11 Naiharn Beach
T: (086) 952 0819

This place sits just past the Royal Phuket Yacht Club on the way to Ao Sane beach. There is no beach in front but you can swim, fish and snorkel around the rocks — beware during monsoon season. Rooms vary from air-con and sterile to your very basic fan bungalow. The new air-con rooms are an absolute rip off at 1,500B and are similar to most hospital rooms. However, the 400B rooms are a great... Read our full review of Nai Harn On The Rock.

Ao Sane

This small bay is on the other side of the Yacht Club, and yes, you actually need to walk or drive through their car park to reach it. If you're on foot it's 20-30 minutes from Nai Harn.

Baan Krating Jungle Beach
Toprange - 4,000B to 8,000B
11/3 Moo 1, Wiset Rd, Ao Sane
T: (076) 28 8264

If you're bored stiff by Phuket's typical resorts with elephant fountains and swim-up bars, Baan Krating might be exactly what you're looking for. Like the name suggests, it really is a top-quality resort set half in the jungle and half on the beach. Their bungalows are set amid a profusion of tropical greenery with leafy palms everywhere and the constant hum of cicadas. The bungalows have all...

Ao Sane Bungalows
Backpacker - Under 600B
11/2 Moo 1, Wiset Rd, Ao Sane
T: (076) 288 306

Backpackers rejoice — budget accommodation does exist in this part of Phuket! Scattered along the entire length of rocky Ao Sane you'll find a dozen or so cheap beach bungalows. The bungalows are fan-cooled and you won't find any TVs or mini-bars here, but they are right on the beach and have balconies with seaviews that could compete with the highest-priced of resorts. Some of the older... Read our full review of Ao Sane Bungalows.

Off Nai Harn Beach

Further down the road past the monastery and reservoir are a handful of midrange places to stay and a better selection of restaurants, bars, and mini-marts.

Naiharn Garden Resort
Midrange - 1,500B to 4,000B
15/12 Moo 1,Viset Rd, Nai Harn
T: (076) 288 319

Sure it's nowhere near the beach, but even the prospect of a sweaty walk to the sea didn't stop us from being won over by the charms of the Naiharn Garden Resort. The restaurant, spa, piano bar, and bungalows here are set in a lush valley and the flower gardens attract all sorts of colourful birds and insects. The bungalows are high-class but homey with air-con, satellite TV, and terraces that... Read our full review of Naiharn Garden Resort.

Baan Oui Guesthouse
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
14/95-96 Moo 1 Saiyuan Road, Nai Harn
T: (076) 38 8538

This bright new option a 15-minute walk from the beach is welcoming and boasts great views of the surrounding hills from most rooms. Built in late 2010, all rooms have massive soft beds, modern bathrooms, flat screen TVs, hot showers, safety deposit box and coffee- and tea-making facilities. The management at Baan Oui has everything covered, including motorbikes to rent, free WiFi in the lobby,... Read our full review of Baan Oui Guesthouse.

Thalassa Nai Harn Resort
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
37/23 Moo 1, Off Nai Harn Beach
T: (081) 081 3847

This is a mini-hotel that's only a 15-minute walk to Nai Harn beach. There are only eight rooms here — the upper four have mountain views and the lower four have direct access to the tiny pool. The effect is a cute, intimate spot offering great value. Rooms are air-con and identical with a double bed, TV and DVD player, mini-bar, hot water and free WiFi. A small kitchen has recently been added... Read our full review of Thalassa Nai Harn Resort.

The Sands
Toprange - 4,000B to 8,000B
23/13 Moo 1, Nai Harn

Managed by the nearby Mangosteen Resort, The Sands is a boutique apartment resort that's only a short walk from Nai Harn beach. Their apartments aim to be a home away from home, but are probably nicer. Every apartment is a two-bedroom suite with two bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, a fully-stocked European kitchen, and a balcony overlooking the Nai Harn reservoir. If you can afford it,...
