5 Ways to Celebrate Christmas in Phuket

With a festive atmosphere of love and warmth, Christmas is one of the most highly anticipated holidays of the year. Although a predominantly Buddhist region, Thailand gets into the festive spirit with jolly enthusiasm, and Phuket is no exception. The Thai island takes on a special glow as early as November that lasts well into the New Year. From shopping malls and night markets to office buildings and residential areas, Phuket is spectacularly lit up, creating a magical ambiance that puts everyone in a celebratory mood.

To help you make the most of the ‘Season of Joy’ on the island, we’ve carefully handpicked some of the best things to see and do. This year’s celebrations will likely be the best you have had yet!

1. Treat Your Tastebuds to Delicious Festive Dishes

What better way to celebrate Christmas in Phuket than by the sea? Make your way to the Spice Pool Party at Kata Rocks and enjoy the Special Christmas Day Edition of the iconic Brunch Pool Party. After you’ve recovered from a day of fun, you can then head to The Nai Harn Phuket which, as its name indicates, sits on the gorgeous Nai Harn Beach, and enjoy an unforgettable Christmas dinner-cum-party!

3. Pamper Yourself with a Spa Treatment

Whether or not you made it onto Santa’s ‘Nice’ list, you deserve to give yourself something special at Christmas. Why not treat yourself to a relaxing spa between celebrations to keep you energized throughout the day? You could get one in one of the 24 impressive treatment rooms at Banyan Tree Phuket. Another great option is The Oasis Spa, a wonderful place hidden in the back roads of Kamala. With a tranquil vibe and a delightful pool backdrop, you’ll instantly feel refreshed!

4. Hit the Club

If you’re into the nightlife scene, be sure to hit Level One’s Christmas Eve Party. Taking place in Dream Beach Club, this will be one of the most happening events this month. Spread the Christmas cheer with luxury canapes and dance the night away with the resident DJ, Vikki Love.

5. Catch a Live Fire Show

If you would like to do something unusual for Christmas, we’ve got the perfect activity in mind. On Christmas Eve, Nai Yang Beach transforms into a carnival with a dinner buffet that includes live cooking stations, sizzling barbecues, and delectable desserts. You’ll be able to catch Christmas carols, a live band, and a fire dance performance. There’ll also be a photo corner, so you’ll have memories of the night, even if you forget.
