Perfect location - will not stay anywhere else”

Location, comfortable bed, short ride away to Patong

Just got back from a 3 day stay at the Beyond Resort Karon. This hotel is the only hotel in Karon with direct access to the beach. Just step out of the resort, you won't have to cross any roads with your beach stuff. From Phuket airport is 900THB by taxi. 400THB tuktuk ride to Patong Beach. I stayed on the top (3rd) floor and the room is spacious, the king sized bed is HUGE (I think it's more like a super king), air conditioning is quiet and cool. I'm very picky with beds and the one we had was very comfortable - I noticed there was an extra topper on top of the mattress. Unfortuantely free wifi is only in the lobby, restaurants and pool area. In room wifi is chargeable - we opted out, but it was still quite reasonably priced although most other hotels have complimentary wifi. There's a convenience store right outside the hotel! This resort is expensive compared to those off the beach or in Patong. But I like the sense of quiet the location and it's only a short tuktuk ride to Patong for shopping and more dining options.

the location and staffs are perfect as other guests said. and we could book tours in the lobby of the hotel. the breakfasts are ok but only in western style. Chinese people may not like the breakfasts. honestly speaking, the decoration of the room is just not bad but didn't worth the price. and if someone wanna bring food and fruits inside the room, eat out fast and clean it up in case of ants. anyway, if i have another opportunity to visit phuket without children, i would choose beyond resort karon again,for it has brought me sweet memory and unforgettable time.

Great location, comfy rooms and good customer service

We really enjoyed our three night stay at the Beyond Resort Karon! It is right on Karon Beach and is on the end of the beach so it is nice and quiet. We really liked this beach because it wasn't too busy and was fun to swim in and had nice sand. The hotel also has a nice pool which we didn't use because we were always were on the beach! The service at the hotel was great and the staff were always so friendly and accomodating! They upgraded our room upon arrival which was a nice surprise. The room was modern with a HUGE bed, wonderful bathroom and nice balcony with a great ocean view. We were very happy with our room! The only dissapointment was the restaurant. Very overpriced food that was only very average. Much better food outside for cheaper. The breakfast buffet was very good though with pretty good selection and good coffee! The rooms here are a bit more expensive than other places but for the great location and comfy hotel, I would say it is worth it! We loved our stay!

Beautiful and clear beach”

We went for a yearly honeymoon trip. This time is to Phuket and we stayed at Beyond resort Karon. They had courteous staff and we even get complimentary rose petals on the bed as well as a coconut drink. 😊 the beach is beautiful and clean.. The cons is that they don’t have any arrangements for halal food. I presume if they do have such arrangement, they will be able to attract more Muslims tourist here as the hotel location is amazing. If not we would have stayed more nights here. Water heater was rather unstable, can be improved further. Overall I loved my stay here despite the struggle with food. On the beach location and staff was superb.

Relaxing stay at a beautiful place!”

My partner and I chose to stay at Beyond Resort Karon because of its location on the water and the fact that it was an adults only resort. It was a terrific place. Great room, terrific amenities. The location near the beach and the beautiful pool were a bonus. On the busy street just outside the doors of the hotel was almost any kind of food you could ask for as well as great Thai coffee and ice cream. We also found this place close to other beaches and tourist sites (e.g., Wat Karon). The breakfast was awesome and the staff were fantastic at helping us get what we needed. We'd definitely go again!

Beyond Resort Karon is a beautiful resort set on Karon beach . The beach is so clean with torquoise water and the resort has sea facing rooms overlooking its beauty. The resort itself is amazing with two pools, wonderful friendly staff and fantastic amenities. It is surrounded by restaurants , shops and markets. It is close enough to Patong but quieter . I cannot wait to return to this resort!I have been to Krabi and Koh Samui but loved the location of Karon the best. My husband and I cannot wait to return.

Hotel & room was very clean. Hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere. All staff very attentive, friendly & so polite. Extremely comfortable & massive bed. Breakfast excellent. The egg station amazing & the chef prepared delicious scrambled eggs (every variety of egg preparation available). Coffees fantastic - barista had memorized our coffee order so they were always being prepared as soon as we entered for breakfast. We visited end of May so resort wasn't very busy & able to easily access the pool/lounges, breakfast room. Location awesome. On edge of Karon & Kata. Great transport easily accessible from tuk tuks, taxis, local buses. If up for walking there's plenty to access regarding shopping, markets, restaurants, live music. Direct beach access & amazing view of Andaman sea from room. Would definitely stay at Beyond Karon again!

A peaceful way to enjoy Phuket”

Beach access, two pools, location

The resort is in a great spot right at the end of Karon Beach. We found ourselves frequenting the area of Kata more so than Karon as when you went out the front doors and turned right, there were loads of restaurants, shops and even a fun mini-golf place all within minutes of walking. There is no real need to get taxis anywhere if you don't want to. The beach was lovely and not too busy down our end, the pools are really nice and the restaurant had some delicious meals. It was actually great being an adults only resort - meaning no kids running around! Not the best place we stayed in Thailand (as far as value for money) but the location is fantastic - away from the craziness that is Patong Beach! I would recommend this area for a more relaxing time away.

the only beachside resort at Karon beach”

directly access to beach, location and staffs.

I stayed in Karon beach resort for 3 nights. It's located beachside and no need to cross traffic road to get the beach. Karon beach is directly accessible from resort and resort pool, which is so convenient and makes it has nice view from pool and restaurant. Breakfast was well-prepared and you can enjoy it with beachview. Location was also good, it's around south end of Karon beach and also accessible to Kata beach by walk. Tons of restaurants are on the road. Very nice place for calm and relaxing. It would be necessary to renovate rooms and buildings. Room was clean but quite small. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. Some other travlers pointed out that it is hard to communicate in English, but I didn't feel any inconvenience in communication with staffs in the resort (check-in & out, restaurant, laundry etc.) I had dinner once in resort restaurant, which has nice beachside table and view, but dissapointed with food. I would not recommend. I would not recommend this resort for luxury honeymooners, but very good choice for couple and family tourists who are willing to have peaceful relaxing vacation. I would definitely come back!

I'm happy when my wife is happy”

surprise birthday cake for my wife despite us not mentioning that it is her birthday; hotel is directly on the beach; hotel is on the main road and is near shops/town center
internet connection sold separately; airport transfers need to be coordinated separately

Back when I was still searching for a hotel in Phuket, I was actually okay with having to cross the road before getting to the beach. After all, my preference was cost-effectiveness over convenience. My wife thought otherwise - she wasn't comfortable with the idea of walking along the roadside in her beach/swimwear. Since this trip was to celebrate her birthday and, in any case, if she's happy then I'm happy, I eventually gave in to her preference. ---------------------We selected Karon Beach Resort and Spa as it was the only hotel that was directly on the beach (as per internet references). You can walk down to the beach straight from the pool or hotel restaurant. Speaking of the restaurant, the food was excellent and we recommend any guest to try them. The pool is okay, nothing fancy and a bit small. I can imagine that the pool/poolside gets quite crowded during peak season. As we were there during mid-May, there weren't that many guests – which is good as far as I’m concerned. The hotel next door also had direct access to the beach but it was situated on sort of a natural, rocky sea-wall.---------------------------------- The room/room amenities were okay as well. As a relatively experienced traveller, I think that it is at par with other hotels with the same rating. Most important of all, the staff did an excellent job of making up the room when we were away. You get an in-room safe, mini bar, cable tv (though not that many channels), bath tub with shower and round the clock centralized hot water. Wireless internet is available in the room though you have to purchase a separate broadband prepaid (limited use) account. Broadband service at the hotel is by TOT and the front office had just one denomination of the card, One Day Unlimited access, during our stay (I didn’t clarify whether they sold other denominations in the past). Alternatively, you can purchase the service online using VISA or MasterCard. There are several options to suit va

Loved our stay at Karon Beach Resort!”

Excellent location, nice resort & friendly staff

This was our first visit to Phuket and we really enjoyed our 5 night stay at Karon Beach Resort. The location was perfect, right on the beach and easy access to shops and restaurants without being too busy. We were more than happy with the room, it was nice and clean... bed was comfy (might be a bit too hard for some) and we slept well. Decor is a little bit dated and maybe a little dark but nothing that bothered us. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning, there was a good range but maybe not enough for those who expect a smorgasbord fit for a king. We had a medical emergency on the last night of our stay and the staff were extremely helpful and concerned and stayed until the ambulance arrived. We were very happy that we stayed in Karon, the pace was a lot more laid back than Patong and we will definitely come back again. There were quite a few very modern optometrists close to the resort and I bought a pair of prescription glasses, Guess frames with transition lenses for A$130 and prescription sunglasses for A$90, the service was very impressive and the glasses were completed within 24 hours!

Right on the Beach at Karon”

Its right on the beach. Great staff. Great breakfast. Great area for shopping and restaurants.Every room has an amazing ocean view.
The beach front restaurant is just OK. But there are many good restaurants just outside the hotel on Karon Road.

It is the only hotel that is actually right on the beach at Karon. Every room has an amazing ocean view. It has a nice pool (a little small) and a good size whirlpool with bar. Breakfast is great, with many dishes both Thai and International. The dining room is beautiful with a full on the beach ocean balcony view.Rooms are clean and decorated in modern Thai style. Ground floor has an open terrace to the pool and beach. upper floors all have balconies with ocean view.Staff is very pleasant and helpful. They are pretentious like at the big fancy hotels. They are nice friendy Thai people. The Karon beach area is lively and pleasant ( unlike Patong which is too lively and noisy and not family oriented) Karon is great for families and people who like it peaeful without being boring.It is just a short walk away from Kata Beach and more shopping and restaurants. The beach itself is one of the best beaches in the world. I mean that! I have travelled extensively and seen many beaches and I always come back to the squeaky (literally) clean fine powder sand of Karon.It is a 10 minute drive to Patong if you like the craziness there. The Karon Beach Resort and Spa is the best hotel on the best beach in Thailand.

Wonderful hotel - a sea of calm in a busy place”

Very comfortable room, right next to the beach, amaxing sunsets, nice snorkelling rocks near hotel

we had a room upgrade without asking - so room was amazing, huge and very comfortable, lovely view of pool and beach. hotel facilities were great - nice pool, massage area ( pity about the sunbeds in front of the massage area restricting the view) also right on karon beach at one end - which is unusual in karon as most hotels are over the road. although this area is really busy - a bit like blackpool and very busy beach - you were not aware of it at this hotel as it is at one end of the beach and so you are not aware of the rest of the area. definitely the best place to stay in karon. also right next to loads of shops and restaurants. however the food was great and very reasonable compared to other hotels that we stayed at. service was good and friendly although it was high season. however if you want a nice quiet beach away from it all - phuket is probably not the best option - however there are other great choices - rayleigh beach and pranam beach were fantastic

We just returned from an 8 night stay at Beyond Karon and we loved it. Very comfortable room on the 1st floor with access to the pool was great. It’s down the quiet end of Karon beach and being kid free made for a very nice relaxing time. Breakfast overlooking the beach every morning is something I miss already. That egg station!! The staff are all very friendly and attentive. We dined at the restaurant twice and it was great, but there are plenty of options within walking distance also. There’s a pharmacy and a handy bamboo mart next door so you don’t have to go far to find everything you need. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Beyond Karon to family and friends.

Karon Beach Resort, Phuket, Thailand”

Lovely staff with high-level English proficiency, comfortable rooms, cable TV, good views, free bottles of water, excellent in-house buffet breakfast and lunches, well-maintained grounds and amenities, close proximity to shops and beach, price.
Dirty water at first, in room safe didn't work, and it's an hour drive from the airport. Other that this, it was really the local environment that was unimpressive - dirty beach etc.

The rather ordinary exterior and positioning of this resort on the main street belies what is really a lovely place inside. The staff were absolutely wonderful at all times and their level of English proficiency was very high. The room was suitably loaded with all manner of modern conveniences and the bed was very comfortable, even if it was two singles pushed together. The free bottles of water was a nice touch too, especially after a long series of flights etc. The buffet breakfast was excellent, as was the lunch menu from the in-house restaurant. The grounds and shared public spaces were all well maintained and the resort's proximity to the local shops and beach was definitely a plus. In fact, it’s easily the best hotel in the area in terms of beach positioning, tucked cosily into one end of the beach. It was also nice to have some Australian options on the television, as I haven't been there in a while now. And having the Discovery Channel was, as always, awesome. Unfortunately, the area in which this resort resides isn't particularly impressive. The beach was littered with garbage at times during my stay and this didn't really thrill me. The water in the bathroom also came out brown upon first use, further reminding me not to even contemplate drinking the local water. Rather conveniently, the mini-mart next door sold 5 litre bottles for only 50THB. This was definitely needed, given the humidity of the area. In fact, this was one of the least enjoyable facets of my visit, although this obviously cannot be attributed to the resort - thankfully they have air-cons installed in the rooms. Without it, I would've died! Overall though, I was just not that impressed with the local area. It simply wasn't of a high enough standard for me to enjoy. For the price though, the resort was rather delightful and I’d recommend it if you were really keen to stay in this region of Phuket.

Happy Family week at Karong Beach Resort Phuket”

Fantastic location, right on beautiful Karon Beach, with several shops and good restaurant in the back street very near. Karon Beach Resort has the right 'human' size which makes everything practical. Rooms, furnitures, bathrooms, swimming pool are perfect and in excellent condition. Food is varied and excellent. Personnel is usually friendly and helpful.
Appearance from the street is very humble. Parking lot is very small and we had to leave our car key at the front desk. Lobby area is unimpressive. Some waiters were not to the level, expected in that category. Lack of garden.

Our family - 2 young kids, my wife and I - spent a very nice and relaxing week at the Karong Beach Resort Phuket, including Christmas Day. The hotel is right on Karon Beach (no street to cross) which is wonderful. The room was big enough for us 4 and had nice furnitures and a terrace with a nice view. The small bathroom was in good shape with everything needed. We like the 'human' size of that hotel, as we did not have to walk too much to go anywhere. The pool area is excellent for kids. Food was excellent and varied. Outside the hotel is a small street with 6-7 very good restaurants + souvenir and convenience shops. Very practical ! The staff was generally friendly and helpful, despite the hotel being full. Very happy overall.

good stay at karon beach resort”

location, wonderful beach, service
additional charges for the gala dinner

Overall, we had a very nice stay at Karon Beach Resort. The service was excellent. The breakfast was good. The beach sand was some of the best I have seen in Thailand (and the world). I would recommend it to friends who are planning a visit to Phuket. It is a little pricey though, especially if you go over the Christmas break. Since we were staying there during Christmas Eve, we had to sign up for a mandatory Gala dinner ($130 per person!). And then at the dinner we were shocked to find that the price did not include the costs of drinks (even just coke or water). But other than that, I would highly recommend the resort.

Heaven on Earth”

Absolute beach front accommodation, heaven on earth. Location is everything,just walk out the front door and everything you want is right there.
Lighting in the rooms needs the biggest improvement. Could not use the bathroom for doing my makeup it was way too dark(also an extending mirror on the wall would help many a lady I'm sure) and no strong lighting for reading in the ever so beautiful rooms, I do love mood lighting but at night I need to be able to read.

Karon Beach resort was a great experience for our first Phuket holiday. As soon as we got out of out taxi, there was someone to greet us, take and bags and show us into reception, which was all better than expected service, and this service continued thru our 5 night stay in every aspect from pool side to dining room to house keeping. My only comment of improvement into this hotel is the lighting in the rooms is not bright enough especially in the bathroom. This hotel has the best views from your room, the breakfast room and the outdoor dining area, you could not want for anything more.
