    Location 6.0 /10

    On the northern end of Karon Beach, the second most frequented beach in Phuket after Patong. Phuket Town, on the east coast, is 12.5 miles away; the airport is around 25 miles north (around 45 minutes by car).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The South Sea Resort offers a total of 152 rooms: 126 superiors of entry standard level, 24 deluxe and 2 suites. All rooms are oriented towards the external side of the hotel, thus overlooking the gardens. They are functional and clean but a bit Spartan in the acommodation and decoration and offer the majority of the standard facilities. Weak points: a light sometimes a bit poor and a microscopic terrace - otherwise called balcony...

    Overview 6.70 /10

    "Resort" is a bit excessive name for this very classic hotel with no direct access to the sea. Built in 1992, the South Sea Resort is a relatively narrow building, all developed in lenght, composed of two lined blocks: the first one has three floors with a terrace-roof while the second one is on four floors. The circulation inside the building is by a row of external stairs. The common spaces of the hotel, especially a swimming pool which is a success compared to the confined space, are in a central open-air well, around which the rooms are distributed. An effort has been made to decorate the immediate surrounding area of the swimming pool with some vegetation. No specific architectural style.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Minimal service: two restaurants - one offering all international cuisine, the Cafe Beach Boulevard, the other is Italian, La Bella Vista- offering its services in the hotel. From the totally banal menu and the almost inexistent decoration of the places, it is clear that the gastronomy is not really a priority there.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    Although there is the obstacle of a very busy road to be crossed, the very nice beach of Karon constitutes one of the assets of the hotel. Vaster than that of Patong and especially less heavily taken over by the seaside business, Karon beach offers more relaxation possibilities. The very good quality water of the Andaman Sea, with a satisfactory level, will also satisfy swimming lovers.

    To know

    The hotel does not offer any specific land or water sport service but numerous local suppliers, on Karon Beach opposite the hotel, offer their services and materials (for a fee). Between the two blocks which constitute the hotel it is better to choose the second one at the bottom: differently from the first one, it has a lift.

      One of the vastest hotels in Phuket for its accommodation capacity. Not favourable to privacy, of course, but the Kata Thani compensates this weakness with a real asset: being almost a monopoly on the nice beach of Kata Noi.

      • Location 5.46

      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!
