Porto de Phuket is the latest venture from Central Retail Corporation, the retail arm of Central Group of Company, on the island of Phuket. Located in Cherng Talay, within the proximity of Boat Avenue and Laguna Phuket, this lifestyle shopping mall brings together high-end fashion, sportswear, convenience store, and many restaurants and eateries.
First, you will find their signature grocery store Central Food Hall, which comes complete with a dine-in section offering roasts and other bistro pub dishes. You have to give the Italian Porchetta a try on your next trip!
You will also find a B2S store, one of Thailand’s leading stationery stores, as well as a Supersports, which is the go-to place when looking for running shoes and other sportswear. A Jim Thompson is also available to satisfy your need of exotic fabrics. In addition to the big brands, you will stumble upon smaller shops, such as jewelry stores and art boutiques.
To complete the delightful shopping experience, we suggest you make a stop at one of the numerous restaurants available for you to eat a bite.
Tu Kab Kao is a classic southern Thai restaurant, which opened its door a few years ago in Phuket Town; the perfect venue to taste a delicious Moo Hong or a Gaeng Som. Another restaurant that originally originates from Phuket Town is Suay restaurant, a Thai fusion restaurant featured in the Michelin Guide for two years in a row. Feel free to try their signature Soft Shell Crab Burger, served with shrimp fat fries, or the marinated lemongrass lamb chops with a delicious papaya salsa.
Finally, you can indulge in Russian specialties at Spice House Restaurant, a Russian-themed restaurant with branches all over Phuket, which has served happy customers for over ten years.
Porto de Phuket is open daily from 08:00 am to 10:00 pm. You will find a large parking lot available, though bear in mind that leaving the parking can be difficult depending on the time of the day and the amount of traffic outside.
Overall, this shopping mall is a welcome addition to the area and provides a breath of fresh air thanks to its design and the numerous boutiques it brings with it.
