The Karon Beach has the major advantage of being built directly on Karon beach itself. Its small size is another advantage, given that it only has 80 rooms, although these are unfortunately a little on the small side. You will also be pleased to hear that the restaurant serves delicious food and offers magnificent views.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is located on Karon beach, one of the island's most popular, and is 16 mi from the centre of Phuket and 27 mi from the airport, in the south-west of the island.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Karon Beach is located at the end of an avenue, and as soon as you are through the lobby you'll find yourself in front of the sea. The 4-star hotel is housed in a white three-storey building and has the considerable advantage of direct access to the beach. The rectangular swimming pool with deckchairs dotted around it overlooks the sea, and there is also a small children's pool. The outdoor massage room is certainly not to be missed, but for somewhere quieter, head for the Kanda spa, which combines contemporary design with Oriental influences.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The restaurant offers sea views and serves high-quality Thai specialities for lunch and dinner, whilst breakfast is served as a buffet in the Orchid Tea Room. Regular theme nights are also organised at the hotel.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Karon beach is open to the public, as are most of the beaches in Thailand, so if you want to use a deckchair it will cost you nearly 200 bahts. It is also bigger than Patong beach, and more significantly has attracted less investment from the seaside tourism industry, which makes it a more relaxing place to chill out. The good quality water of the Andaman sea, together with the beach's gentle slope, should please all the swimming enthusiasts among you.

    To know

    The Karon Beach Resort is one of the few hotels built right on the beach. It took the full force of the tsunami and was therefore completely renovated between January and July 2005.

      Luxury, isolation, exclusivity: in an exceptional environment, the Chedi interprets a high standard partition which makes it one of the most beautiful hotels in Phuket. After the tidal wave that affected Phuket on 26th December 2004, the Chedi suffers minimum damages on a few bungalows and the beach restaurant, but the hotel works normally.

      • Location 3.3

      Just like its twin establishments, the Kamala Beach and the Patong Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Surin Beach is definitively a family hotel. The children's club is a true paradise for kids: it's built on several levels and offers all sorts of activities. Located at the heart of the hotel, parents are never far. Bought in 2008 by the Marriott group, this is a well kept establishment despite having been around for a long time. However, the lack of facilities will prove disappointing to sports enthusiasts. The hotel isn't exactly a seaside establishment, but the beach is relatively close.

      The Courtyard Phuket at Kamala Beach is perfect for families, as seen in the facilities its children's club has to offer. Different areas have been set up to cater to several age categories and the workshops on offer are sure to delight children and adults alike. As for comfort, the hotel has also risen to the challenge: all of the rooms are suites. However, the beach is some 400m from the hotel and the path leading to it runs parallel to the road. Plus, the fact that guests have to pay to use the deckchairs is regrettable.

      It is difficult if not impossible not to be charmed by this calm and relaxing place. The Manathai is a superb boutique hotel, open since 2006. Its unique decoration is much more refined than in certain grand palaces. However, you do not come here for the organised activities, as there are not any. Nevertheless, couples will be delighted to stay there. A beautiful success!

      • Location -

      Located near Karon beach, the Woraburi is a small comfortable town hotel with no facilities other than a pool and a restaurant. Nonetheless, it is still an ideal departure point for exploring the town on foot. There are lots of shops next to the hotel, but if shopping isn't your thing and you prefer to laze around on the beach, there is a public beach that you can go to but you will have to walk across the road to get to it, as is the case with all the beaches in Thailand. Moreover, there are no deck chairs or parasols set up for the hotel guests on the beach.

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
