Phuket is pricey in high season for accomodation. The resort was nice set on top of a small hill near the lovely karon beach. The rooms and facilities were clean and well maintained. The tour desk assistant , Art was pleasant to deal with and we found the young man at the front helpful with the baggage and transport and polite as with the front desk staff. This hotel is well suited to young families as the pools are lovely. We would consider staying here again if we were to return to karon, Phuket perhaps in a less busier time of year. Overall nice resort.
Having trouble thinking of anything that was bad or not up to standard at this resort. I stayed in a poolside room in the privilege wing which is adults only. Very quiet and the little extras you get by adjusting in this wing are great. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. My room was made-up every morning to a high standard. The food is good but after a week I found I was a little over it but plenty of nice restaurants nearby. The resort has a free shuttle into Patong and back about 5 times per day. My only criticism would be that there are quiet a few stairs and no lifts so if you have trouble walking you should request a room with minimal stair access. Definitely would go back.
Great value for money”
Beautiful garden with very nice pools. Spacious clean rooms, good breakfast. Staff was kind & helpful and did what they could to assist. F&B prices are ok, nothing too bad for a Phuket resort. Great place for 4-5 days, we will go back.
Beautiful hotel with everything just about perfect. Great room, great staff, lovely pool, excellent food (breakfast). Walk to the beach is a bit of a hill but free transport is quick and efficient. Public areas could be cleaner but rooms are immaculate. A very enjoyable stay . Thank you.
clean hotel with great facilities and services. the adults only part of the hotel is good for those who want a quieter stay and the complimentary snacks and drinks (12pm to 2pm) are a great perk! we were very happy with the hotel.
Accommodating from start to finish--A great place to relax”
The staff at Horizon were accommodating and flexible to our needs from start to finish beginning with my early check in to my wife's late check out, both at no additional charge and without any hassles. We stayed in the Club wing and received the Privilege benefits which were very nice extras--snacks and coffee/tea all day; cocktails/soft drinks and a light tapas from 12-2 which served perfectly for a light lunch between sunbathing/pool sessions. Another benefit of the Club wing is no children, so if you're a family with children then this review won't help much as we didn't really venture to the other side. Access to the Club wing is limited to those staying on the Club side only, which is nice as it gives you a nice quiet pool. Only problem with the pool is that it is a bit shady after around 3 (during late March anyways), so if you are looking to continue sunbathing then do like us and head to the beach around then! Not many complaints about the room. A/C went off one evening and someone was there to fix it immediately. I think the bathroom supplies are a bit lacking. They have soap and shampoo dispensers rather than individual freebies, and the quality of the soap and shampoo isn't too great. However, the room altogether was great and spacious as well as well cleaned and maintained. The balcony is big too, with two big sunbeds and an umbrella. The room also provides two beach mats and an umbrella that you are free to take to the beach and come in very handy. The grounds of the hotel are also quite nice in the Club wing area. There's a little stream (man made) running through it with lots of flowers and exotic plants. The multi level set up is interesting too as the lobby sits up much higher than the Club wing pool and some of the rooms. It makes for a kind of tree house feel almost with steps leading you up, down and around. That's not to say that there are a tremendous amount of steps that you're always climbing. I didn't feel taxed when moving about. T
Wonderful Holiday in Horizon Karon Resort & Spa”
We loved very much to stayed from the first day walked in Horizon Karon Resort & Spa. We had great holiday especially upgraded to Club Wing. We appreciated all the friendly staff and facilities provide by the hotel. Highly recommend this place. Planning to stay for our next holiday.
Service, service, service.”
We stayed in the quieter wing of the hotel which had its own pool and lounge to relax in. The room was fine and kept clean and tidy but we did have mosquitoes flying around as we were at ground level. The bed was pretty hard. The hotel is really geared around service to its guests and the staff are great and so very attentive. If you like that, then this is the place for you. I enjoyed my stay here but overall I prefer a smaller less formal hotel. 10 out of 10 for the breakfast which has everything and more. The same can be said for the evening meal. There are always chefs at hand that will cook their special each night which is a nice touch. Be warned you will pay for all your drinks except tea and coffee in the evening but its still great value. My thanks to all the staff.
Niceh hotel with great service”
We received great service with the room upgraded. The hotel provide big and comfortable room a also nice decorate. We also received dinner and complimentary and voucher for discount at the spa. great value and best service with this hotel. we surely come back for another visit
I stayed here for 5 nights.the food is good,the people are very friendly.they are well mannered.the bathroom is pretty run down.It was very nice of them when they offered a drink and a wet cold towel for us to freshen up before going to the room.please take from the hotel itself. Safer.there are shops around to venture alone.I like tho pool bar as well.
Perfect hotel for family with younger children”
we stayed 2 nights at Horizon, everything seems average about this hotel = architecture, decor, food, service but it is difficult to find all these ingredients in the right proportion. 5 mn walk down the hill from the beach, the hotel is well secluded . Breakfast buffet is adequate. Staff is smiling and generally more helpful and efficient than in most hotels in the same category. Well done.
"amazing hotel with an amazing view"”
What you would think of when one thinks of a Tropical Paradise or Resort. Hidden in the hills in the jungle about 1 hour from Phuket's airport. The resort is complete with beautifully landscapping everywhere, glorous pool and surroundings, waterfall into the pool, view of the beach and mountains close by. A place I will definately return to some day soon.
Beautiful hotel great value”
We found this hotel very good value compared to other hotels we have stayed in Phuket. The swimming pool was great the kids loved it, gym was great, the food fantastic far better then more expensive hotels in the same region. It has a tuk tuk to run you down to beach which was good also has a shuttle bus to patong for shopping etc
best hotel in Karon great staff.”
We loved the hotel this is our second time here.We stayed 8 nights. Rooms were very clean we got two rooms next to each other. We had dinner every day at the hotel as part of our package, food was plenty and delicious.
Great Services provided!”
my girlfriend and i had a amazing experience at Horizon Karon Resort. Upon arrival the receptionist served us welcome drinks and a iced towel for a start while helping us to process with the check-in with almost no waiting time! The room was still quite spacious for us and i was surprised that they maintained the standards of the room so well. The floor was wiped with oil and bed plus toilet was very clean despite the resort was established for quite some time already. If you have any enquiries or in need of any room service, just dial the extension and they WILL attend to you almost faster than the stated time. Overall, kudos to this resort and I will definitely come back the next time I am in Phuket.
A few of the reviews we read mentioned the steep hill to the resort and yes, it is steep but not that long and the free tuk tul was always available to take us up or down straight away. However, those with mobility issues should probably choose somewhere else as there are no lifts at the property and breakfast is served on the second floor. We were pleased we requested a ground floor room (thanks to a previous reviewer). We chose the off peak deal where kids stay and eat free including breakfast and dinner which was great value. Breakfast was good as was dinner with a weekly rotating buffet menu - one thing with dinner though - the food is past its best after around 8.30. Our room was clean and spacious, the swimming pools are great and the service was the best we have experienced in quite a while - very friendly.The only negative was a slight sewage smell in some areas of the resort but not where our room was.
lovely resort complex great rooms”
karon beach is a very nice beach , a bit quieter than patong and the beach is very clean, a little more laid back than patong with the average age of holiday makers a little older than the young crowd at patong
nice hotel with great location”
the location of the hotel is really good in that it is situated near the beach. the beach is really nice, beautiful white sand and it is quiet most of the time. all in all a wonderful resort and i couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Nice rooms but selective service”
we were upgraded to a club room upon our arrival. the room was huge and overlooked the pool. the club area was exclusive and private. we noticed that the concierge and bell staff were more polite and friendly towards the westerners than asians. we felt that the front desk girls were better in service. the most we got out of the concierge staff were nods when requested for help. no smiles, no greetings. overrall, the service was not examplary but average.
Lovely clean hotel with spacious room & great food”
horizon karon is located up a slope at the end of the tsunami evacuation route.(great for the safety conscious! ;) it was a pleasant surprise to have free tuk tuk service up and down the punishing slope. the staff are extremely friendly and one especially attentive waiter made our stay extra special. he made sure that my mum had a soup spoon for every bowl of soup she took! he was very observant and when he noticed that my mum forgot to take the soup spoon, he always made sure to get it to her before she started on the soup. it's such attention to details that made our stay so special.
