PHUKET HOTEL REVIEW: Phuket Bike Resort is ideal for families and couples. You don’t have to be a cycling enthusiast to stay here but you’ll love it if you are into bikes.

Located in a quiet but convenient corner of rural Phuket near Layan Beach, on the west coast of Phuket, the modern bike-themed resort is low key, family-friendly with spacious studio and duplex apartment-style rooms, including Pool Access duplex apartments.

The rustic surroundings are ideal for bike rides and you can borrow bikes from the resort and pop down the road to the local fresh market and supermarkets.

You certainly don’t have to be into bicycles to enjoy the resort’s ambiance and bike-themed facilities — which include sun bathing deck, games room, library and bistro — but if you are a cycling enthusiast you’ll enjoy being able to park your bike in your room, do repairs if necessary, and get good advice on routes and upcoming cycling events.

Phuket Bike Resort is probably the only hotel in Phuket that caters to pro and hobby cyclists. It’s certainly in a good location for some gruelling hill climbs and many choose to stay here when competing in the frequent regional and international races held in Phuket.

The contemporary Asian apartment-like rooms at the Phuket Bike Resort are ideal for long stays. Each studio and duplex has a fully-equipped kitchen with all you need to do your own cooking.

Mind you, the resort’s bistro, “Park Here”, is quite affordable, and serves excellent pasta and pizza plus Japanese sushi and traditional Thai dishes.They also serve  fine fresh coffee, shakes and other healthy beverages, as well as a selection of local and international beers, wines and spirits in comfy surroundings.

It’s also easy to stock up on groceries or grab some food to go at the nearby market.

You can choose from three room types for up to four (4) guests: Bike Studio (50sqm); Bike Duplex (120sqm) and Bike Duplex Pool Access. Each room type is airy with great views of the surrounding tropical scenery, and of course, a place to park your bikes.
