Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    On the west coast of Phuket, in the town of Karon Beach, the Woraburi is located just opposite Karon beach. Phuket Town is an approximate 15-minute drive away, while the airport is about 45 minutes away, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 207 guestrooms of the Woraburi are spread over the various floors of a large U-shaped building surrounding the pool, which unfortunately means that guests are able to see each other from their rooms. This downside is somewhat compensated by the fact that the rooms all have a furnished balcony, and the interior decor is very pleasant: wooden furniture adorns the room and a mosquito net adds a final decorative touch to the large bed or twin beds. As far as amenities are concerned, the room is very well equipped: there is a television, a safe, air-conditioning, a hair-dryer, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a direct international telephone line and room service in the daytime.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Woraburi means 'splendid city' in Thai. This name suits the hotel perfectly, as it is located in the heart of the town of Karon Beach. Built in 2005, the Woraburi is open all year round. Guests are welcomed into a small lobby with traditional Thai decoration, and the reception desk is on the right hand side, with little lounge areas arranged with sofas, armchairs and coffee tables laying just opposite it. Outside, the outdoor pool is shaped by the buildings that house the guestrooms and a small wooden bridge enables guests to walk across the pool. It is a very pleasant spot, with deck chairs and parasols laid out around the pool, just by the water.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The Woraburi has a main restaurant called the 'Smile' which looks out to Karon Beach and its promenade, with the beach in the background It is open for all three meals of the day, from 6:30 am until 12:00 am and the international cuisine is served as a buffet for breakfast and a la carte for the other two meals. Above it is the Silk Bar with two happy hours between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm and from 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm. The second restaurant, called the Sip Bar also serves international cuisine, but especially based on seafood. It is open from 5:00 pm to 12:00 am for dinner only. If you wish to have a nibble during the day though, the Sanook Pool Bar serves refreshments.

    To know

    As mentioned above, the Woraburi does not stand on the seafront. Guests can nonetheless use Karon beach, located opposite the hotel: they just need to cross the coastal road. For those who love massages, they can go to the spa just in front of the hotel, which consists of two individual treatment rooms, one room for Thai massages (with four beds) and two hammams.

      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.

      Located bordering Laguna Beach, the Bangtao Beach Resort has been existing since 2003. Find out about the road before coming here, it is located on a small street, where you will not think you will find a hotel. The staff of this hotel is very friendly and smiley. This hotel suits people who are looking for simple but effective comfort.

      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.

      The Kamala Beach is not a hotel for families, as it does not accept bookings for children under 15 years of age. So, it is usually friends and couples who tend to stay here. The situation is a little odd, since the hotel's identical twin, the Sunwing Resort, accepts children, and is only separated from the Kamala Beach by a row of bushes. We couldn't then see what the point was, since there were children just next door... Anyway, this hotel has the advantage of being located close to the beach of the same name, but the deckchairs are not included in the price. The Kamala Beach has no other facilities, not even a spa, which is, to our mind, a major asset for a seaside holiday nowadays. However, there is a small area in the garden, where massages are provided in the open air.

      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!

      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.

      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!
