When to come.: The best time to visit Phuket is during the cool NE monsoon season, from November through March when the cool breezes keep things comfortable. The average temperature is around 75F to 89F (24C to 32C).
The hottest time is from April through May with temperatures ranging from 80F to 95F (27C to 36C). There are frequent short heavy thundery showers, offering welcome relief from the temperature and humidity. The Thai New Year occurs (Songkran Festival) on April 13th and everyone sprinkles (or throws) cool water on each other.
Locals enjoy June, July and August since the weather is usually fine and our favourite haunts remain uncrowded. The usual pattern is brief but heavy showers, with plenty of sunshine between the rain. Temperatures range between 70F and 90F (20C to 33C).
During September and early October we locals start to remember our umbrellas. But even at this time, we still get long intervals of sunshine between the showers.

Well I just love Phuket and this apartment resort. Phuket because the Thai people are so great, the food is amazing and the beaches are to die for. This apartment because it is a very friendly place with a wonderful pool, affordable restaurant and on-site gym all 100 meters from the beach. What's not to like?
I would have to say the location, being so close to the beach is a wonderful benefit. The pool is huge and uncrowded with lots of umbrellas and loungers. The on-site restaurant is very good and inexpensive and there is some great dining within walking distance. Love this place.
