At Centara Karon Resort, there is so much to offer all guests. The resort is a modern, mid-rise establishment with panoramic views of Karon Beach and the lush hinterland of the hills behind. From the fringe of Phuket's emerald green hills, the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea unfold into the horizon. Karon Beach displays its majestic sweep as one of the finest soft white sandy beaches to be found anywhere on Phuket, and it is a popular holiday resort offering everything that is expected from a tropical island destination. Heading to the beach is a gentle three-minute stroll from the resort where the dazzling white sand of Karon's four-kilometer beach sweeps before you.

Great resort, lovely staff and facilities are well positioned. Hotel is in excellent position.”
Some parts a little tired but rooms are spacious and comfortable
Great for families”
Great resort for families not so much for singles. Room was a bit smelly and when I went to check out another room that smelt worse. The resort is huge so there are always a lot of people about. Be weary they add on a 10% service charge and 7%vat on everything I.e meals and then add on the same for your final bill. Beds were comfy, meals nice. 3 pools and one is for adults only. Breakfast was good and there is an onsite tour desk. I personally wouldn't stay here again but like I said great for a family holiday.
Great hotel to stay with family. ”
My children had a great time at Centara Karon beach. The pool facility was great. Breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of food. And location is only a stone throw away from the beach. Would choose this hotel again if we come back to phuket.
sensational relaxing holiday”
This resort gives you everything that you would want especially if being an older couple that can not travel much. Everything is in walking distance and not too fat. the beach 5 mins. the markets tue and sun nights 7 mins. two pools. walk to shops and restaurant. have a massage. drink at the Irish pub. enjoy the football with a group of strangers. everything is there for a relaxing holiday.
Great family resort”
We really enjoyed our time at Centara. The location is great, short walk to the beach and lots of different restaurants close by. Pros: The kids pool and playroom were fantastic, the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was very clean and beds extremely comfortable! We had the pool room, which was lovely and spacious but the pool was very cold. Cons: I think the breakfast is adequate, but it's not as impressive as many other resorts I've stayed at (less options). I also found the 10% service charge on every restaurant order or room service to quickly add up. It made it expensive to eat in the resort and we ended up eating outside a lot of the time, as the resort restaurant was definitely not value for money. Overall, would recommend and stay again.
Everything. 3 big pools lovely breakfast. Great for everyone. Good location, would use centra hotels again
Phuket holiday 2019”
Visited Centara Karon Resort in 2014, liked it then and still like it now 👍 Facilities, location and staff are great especially the staff where nothing is too much trouble to ensure your stay is a happy one. Not a lot has changed in the 5 year gap since we last stayed and some things need a refresh but considering the amount of people passing through it still has a lot to offer 😊
Absolutely loved it here. It was such a nice resort with great pools and a nice gym.
Good family hotel but needs improvement.”
Nice family hotel but it needs improvement. The rooms need upgrading. Our shower head sprayed water in random directions, the towel rack fell off under the weight of one towel, the drain was broken in the tub, the hot water was inconsistent, the TV was small and old, a couple of the pillows were lumpy and old, the wooden balcony door was rotting, the hotel lost electricity twice for 30-60 min. which wasn't their fault but they didn't have a powerful enough backup generator. The breakfast buffet was not nearly as good as other resorts we've been to at similar price range. A friend of ours was upgraded to our room type for free which was nice but we paid significantly more and got no upgrades of any kind. None of our complaints are deal breakers but we didn't feel like it met our expectations for the price we paid. It's a nice hotel for kids. 2 big beds for a family of 4 is nice and the kids pool was fun for the whole family, but not sure if we'll return. Staff are very well trained.
Really fun place ”
The kid’s pool is awesome. Our kids didn’t even want to go to the beach. Lazy river, water slides, waterfalls. And I was ok with that because the guys at the swim up bar were always ready to serve! The food at the bar and restaurants was really good. So good that we rarely ventured out. We would love to stay there again.
A great beach holiday ”
We had a great week in the sun on Karon beach. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk away (no hotels are on the beach). The staff were excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was amazing. There were no problems with the internet. The only issue was on checkin they got mixed up and tried to give us a smaller room. I had my agora booking and after some insisting they went online and realised the mistake. If I hadn't been paying attention I would have been downgraded. After checkin the desk clerk escorted us to the room, which was refreshing. The hotel was fully occupied during our stay with mostly Russians, which wasn't a bad thing. In fact, most of the visitors at Karon were Russian. Every morning after breakfast we'd go to the beach and rent a couple on beach chairs and umbrellas. You gotta get there early (by 9am) or you may not get a chair. My better half isn't a good swimmer. Karon was perfect for her as the water gets deep slowly and wasn't rough. Every night we'd eat at 1 of the many restaurants. Great seafood of all kinds. Sushi too. We rode elephants one afternoon at a nearby place. It was the most expensive part of the holiday - about $50 each. It was the middle of February, so was a very busy place. If you want a real quiet holiday this probably isn't the destination for you. I was last in Phuket in 2000. The island of Phuket has changed a lot since then. It's becoming overcrowded and overdeveloped. That said, it was a great time.
I booked the room with direct access to the pool/lagoon, but fully occupied on the date of my arrival. But the staff is very kind and find the nice large room on 3rd floor with 2 queen beds. Too bad that there is no elevator, thus have to take the stairs, which is can be quite confusing at the first time, due to the huge hotel area. Facilities is quite complete, and hotel has daily routine program for hotel guests (adult and kids). The kids really enjoy them.
Great value for the family”
Friendly staff, nice facilities and kids club staff are great to entertain the kids. Thoroughly enjoyed. Location is not in bustling tourism central, which may not be ideal for some holiday goers. Overall nothing to complain about the resort.
We have stayed in room 3322 as a couple, room was great but there was serious problem with the shower. While taking shower you can experience unpleasant boiling hot and freezing cold water changes. The staff at front office usually takes up to 10 min to pick up the phone, and it took them literally 1 hr to bring an adapter to our room. Strongly recommend 3rd floor for a room location.
This hotel is awesome for family holiday”
I really recommended this hotel for people who loves to play or be near by the water because there are altogether 3 swimming pools and also we can just take a few minutes walk and we will meet the beach. This was also near the night market, and so this is a good thing for people who loves to hang out at night. There's bars, restaurants, massage near by the hotel. This is a very cool hotel to stay. Next time if i come to Phuket again I will stay at this hotel again.
Nice place a big family vacation”
Staff were very helpful and friendly as we were there to surprise our sister for her birthday. We stayed in the middle area which is right next to pool, it was just perfect for the kids. We'll be back again!
great family holiday”
we stayed for 5Night in this hotel, location is good.. wlking distance to nearby restaurant, temple bazaar in karon, and also karon beach... a lot of spa outside the hotel and laundry... the swimming pool was great, the room is big, we have 2 adjoining room, the twin bed room is 2 queen size bed, fit perfectly for the 7 of us
Very Nice Resort, suitable for family with kids.”
It is a very good experience for me to stay in Centara Karon Resort with my husband and 2 kids. We have a wonderful time there. The swimming pool with slides are the first attraction for kids. And the second one I like the most is the Children Center, which provide a very good facilities and staffs there. So that we can leave the kids there for an hour to have a rest. It is a very good experience for me, I think I will come again next time.
Good value for money, great for family vacation”
In overall, certainly one of the best resort I have ever been. Good value for money, good location, great for family vacation. We booked a premium deluxe room at Tropicana, but was upgraded to a cavana with a jacuzzi with no additional cost. The spacious room and the private garden was great retreat. The pool was quite crowded but had enough chairs. The water was dirty maybe because a lot of people put on too much sun tan lotion. The pool had water slides and my kids loved them. The kid's club was free of charge but the parents were not allowed to leave the hotel premises. The hotel restaurants were OK, nothing special, but it was great eating out by the pool and plenty of volume. The breakfast buffet was also nice with many selections. Convenient location. There are many restaurants, mini marts, massages right outside the hotel, and the night market is 10minutes walk. The beach is 5 minutes away. Not so noisy and crowded as Patong. It seemed most of the guests were Russians or Australians. Only saw few people from Asian countries. This was the first time I saw no Japanese guests during the stay at a hotel in Asia. Only disappointment was that the hotel had no free wifi which was inconvenient. I thought these days hotels everywhere offer free wifi. In the end, as I said, one of the best in my experience. Happy to come back to this place.
Comfortable and good value resort”
We arrived after about 16 hours of travelling and were told we had been upgraded to a room with a pool view (as had our teenage kids in their room). This room was on the top floor of the Traopicana or similar building, which did not have an elevator, which from reading internet reviews, was a problem for some people. It wasn't for us. The largest pool was directly outside our room, but as their was s separate childrens' pool some distance away, their was never too much noise. The prices in the hotel were reasonable and the breakfast buffet was quite good. The hotel is very large, and it was a 5 minute walk for us just to get to reception, however we didn't mind. The location was close to shops in Karon. If you want to be going to Patong everyday, don't stay here, as it's a 400 Baht tuk tuk ride each way. We would happily stay here again.
