The island of Phuket is one of the most popular Muay Thai training destinations in the world, so unsurprisingly, there are a lot of gyms on the island. Being as there are so many gyms to choose from, it is likely a difficult task in choosing the right gym for you. Certain gyms are good for certain people, so there is no way to really compile a list of the best Muay Thai Gyms in Phuket. The best I could do was to compile all the information available into a single place so that you can make an informed decision for yourself. When choosing a gym it is probably a good idea to start by choosing a city you would like to train from and narrowing your search down from there.
Training in Chalong Bay seems to be for the more serious Muay Thai student. There is much less nightlife in the Chalong area then there are in the more popular Rawai and Patong areas, so it is easier to stay focused on the training at hand. That is not to say that there is nothing in Chalong, on the contrary, it is home to some of the top cultural attractions on Phuket, including Big Buddha of Phuket. The majority of the gyms in Chalong are focused on a single road, making for a very Muay Thai oriented environment.

Kata Beach is one of the most family friendly cities on Phuket. It isn’t a real popular place to train Muay Thai, but there are a few gyms in the area. Kata Beach is more widely known for it’s amazing beaches, restaurants and shopping. The city is all pretty compact, so you can practically walk everywhere.

Patong Beach is known as the party center of Phuket due in part to the famous Bangla Road. Despite it being a city full of distractions, there are quite a few gyms there. It is also home to the Bangla Boxing Stadium which is a popular place to watch live Muay Thai fights.

Rawai Beach is the center of the Muay Thai Training universe when it comes to the island of Phuket. It seems like every month or so a new gym is popping up somewhere in the Rawai and Nai Harn area. The atmosphere on this part of the island is pretty laid back and makes for a very welcome training environment. It also helps that the area is home to Nai Harn Beach which is one of the best beaches on Phuket.

Kamala is just north of Patong and although you are really close to the bustling tourist center, you won’t feel like you are. Although it is a bit pricier than the areas south of Patong Beach, Kamala is a great place to stay and train. It also doesn’t hurt that Kamala Beach is one of the top ten beaches in Phuket.

Thalang is a very quiet part of Phuket Island and is a good place to train without all the distractions present in the tourist areas of the island. However, you are limited in your choices as there are only a couple of gyms to choose from.

To keep this resource up to date, I need a bit of help. The island of Phuket is very large and there seems to be new Muay Thai Camps popping up every day. If I have missed anything on this list or one of the gyms here is no longer open, Let Me Know.
