Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"we booked the spa deluxe room but when we went we realized that the jacuzzi was too small and had no privacy so we paid a little extra and got our self upgraded to the premium spa deluxe which was an amazing experience the room was too good and the bathroom was very trendy, loved the interior and the view was amazing. the pool area was fantastic with slides and a lazy river, it is probably the only hotel in karon in which you do not have to cross a road to get to the beach.it was really relaxing and we enjoyed our 4 day stay at centara grand and would recommend it to couples and families.

Woraburi Phuket Resort & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"We travelled during low season, which meant Karon beach was relatively quiet. It was the second time I'd travelled to Phuket and we chose Karon beach as we knew it would be quieter than Patong with fewer (drunk) tourists. We were there for 6 nights (mid July) and lucked out with no rain, although I know it had poured almost constantly the week beforehand. The resort is a little dated and could do with some renovation works. Pool lovely and cleaned twice daily. We had a triple room (queen and roll away single bed) with pool access which was awesome. Free water supplied daily, as well as towels for teh beach, which is directly across the road. Beach itself is lovely and a lot nicer than Patong. Very clean and few locals trying to sell goods. Those that did pass weren't pushy at all. Sun lounges at the beach available for rent for 100 baht from memory. There are warning signs at the beach reporting strong currents...but there was always a lifeguard on duty. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was good...though you get sick of it after a few days. Had a good mixture of Asian and Western foods to choose from. Karon Plaza market (selling clothes, shoes, souvenirs etc) is right next door, as is a strip of restaurants, convenience stores and massage parlours. Some of the other resorts in Karon looked a lot fancier (the Movenpick, for example), however for the price, Woraburi is really recommended. If you're keen to go out every night, best to stay in Patong as Karon beach is a little far away (20 mins or so) and the Tuk Tuk costs add up. Woraburi provides a one way t/f to Patong twice daily. Just make sure you book in advance. Staff were great and helpful with tips about the area, including how best to get to Phuket town (massive night market where everything is a lot cheaper than in Karon and Patong...T-shirts 100 baht, Raybans 100 Baht, dressier tops 200-300 depending on the quality). We booked a few tours at a local tour agent which were great. Enjoy! "

Avista Grande Phuket Karon Mgallery (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"I had booked my stay with Avista Grande Karon after checking its reviews, and true to its excellent reviews, my boyfriend and I had an amazing stay with them. We were upgraded to an ocean view suite, where we could see the sunset from our balcony! The hotel is in fact situated on a small plot of land, but the design was optimized and you'd have nothing more to ask for! Amazing pool and pool bar with areas to lounge, good quality breakfast although the selection was limited (not to worry if you're booking a long stay, the executive chef would be happy to cook up something special for you!) - staffs were all very friendly and helpful during our very short stay. The hotel is a short walk to the end of Karon beach - which is perfect because it's quiet and it feels like you have the beach to yourselves. You can also take a walk to Kata area for food and access to Kata beach (though it seems more touristy than Karon beach). My advice? Skip Patong and just head over to Avista Karon."

Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"The hotel is big and lush.The seaview from the room is amazing.The pool next to the beach is very nice.Must try the mojito.Happy hours 1 for 1 at 5 to 6 pm.Karon beach is amazing.The only bad point is the chaotic taxi situation in Phuket.I will ask the hotel to call me a taxi and somehow it will get an unlicenced taxi.If you are a single traveller you may be afraid of such things.The taxi fares are totally ridiculous.I paid baht1000 to go to the airport when the airport taxi charges me baht700 to go to the hotel.The taxi fare from hotel to Patong is baht400.The return trip may be baht600.The hotels in Karon should organise a van service to patong to give guest an alternative.The van service from the hotel to Patong is not frequent enough.The hotel food is good and the live band at night is decent.The staff at the hotel is warm and nice and capable."

Sugar Marina Resort - Art - Karon Beach (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"I really enjoyed my time at the Sugar Palm Hotel in Karon Beach, Phuket. It is definitely the best hotel money has ever bought me. It was clean, staff were friendly, very close to the beach, and had a lovely buffet breakfast. They had movie rentals for free, free bottled waters, pool towels and even a balcony to catch the last bits of sun. It was recommended to us by some friends and I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it anyone heading out that way. Thanks to the staff who made our weekend so nice and relaxing!"

Karon Butterfly Residence
Karon,Karon - View on map
"We were so pleasantly surprised to enter into a beautiful large 2 bedroom condo with an ocean view and large balconly. The shuttle to the bottom of the hill and to the beach was running constantly. The driver is wonderful and went out of his way to take my husband to the pharmacy to get my daughter the meds she needed. The staff was helpful in planning excursions and taxis and assisting us with anything we needed. They even watched our bags for us after check out and let us use an empty room to shower before our late flight. Pros: size, friendly staff, restaurant and bar (excellent hard working waitress and bartender), beautiful clean pool, breakfast, restaurant, location (4 minute walk to the beach & near many restaurants and shops) Cons: our room smelled bad at first. I'm not sure if we got used to it or if it got better over time. We used lots of air freshener to help. The floors were very dirty. We just wore our shoes inside. They offered to switch our room,but we chose to stay."

The Old Phuket Karon Beach Resort (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"After staying in two other 3 and 4 star hotels in Karon beach The Old Phuket had me hooked after my first night. The hotel is set back about 150 meters from the beach , just down a small no through road. The hotel has a very nostalgic atmosphere with a beautiful reception area surrounded by lush tropical well manicured gardens and fish pools. Lots of space here to move around, with green well kept lawns, to a library and a small gym with some cardio equipment (no weights)The restaurant is outdoor with a turn of the century charm, and the breakfast is excellent as far as IM concerned. The hotel appears to have three wings, two newer, and one older. I stayed in the new wing and the room was way above average, including rain shower, raised glassed in bathtub, patio furniture and relatively comfortable bed. The highlight of this hotel (new wing) is the amazing swimming pool. Swimmers, triathaletes this is your place as the pool has 3 sectioned off 40 meter lap lanes (aprox 40 meters) to do laps. The water was clean, cool and a treat to swim in. Ground floor poolside rooms have Jacuzzi jets and relax contoured pool edge on there balcony."

Mandarava Resort and Spa Karon Beach (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"Firstly, I would suggest NOT booking through Agoda but contacting the hotel directly cos I found out after my booking that I indeed paid a higher price through this website. Thankfully, even the higher price was worth it. For those of you who want to be able to bounce into the sea from your hotel lobby then this hotel is not for you because it is a ten minute walk to Karon beach. BUT they do have shuttles and the walk really is quite bearable. Karon beach is the best beach to stay at if you want peace, quiet and cleanliness and Mandarava's location means that even if you miss the buzz of Phatong, you won't be far away. The room was elegantly put together with high ceilings and 2 entire walls of sliding, clear balcony doors. The amenities are what you would expect of a 5star hotel and staff were very friendly and prompt. The beautiful pools and patios give you a stunning alternative to going to the beach for Phuket's famed sunsets. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mandarava because when I think of Phuket, I think of a tranquil getaway at this hotel provided exactly that and more. "

More about Karon

South of lively Patong Beach, Karon Beach is a much quieter town with shops, restaurants and bars that cater specifically to tourists. There is an abundance of good local restaurants, and accommodation ranges from small guesthouses to family resorts. Hotels line the road behind the shoreline, but the long, broad beach itself is free of development. Clothing can be purchased from markets in the main part of town or along the beach front, and there are a number of supermarkets, convenience stores and pharmacies in the area.

Snorkeling is best at Karon’s southern end, which has a coral reef stretching toward Kata and a small offshore island, Boo Island. From November to April, Karon offers perfect conditions, but from May to October swimming can be dangerous because of strong undertows, and visitors are advised to always observe the warning flags.

Restaurants, bars, and tour companies are at the north end, near the traffic circle, and at the south end, on the little road connecting the back road with the beach road. A surprising number of restaurants cater to Scandinavian tastes. Nightlife is much more subdued than in neighboring Karon.

Besides taxis, there is a regular daytime bus service to and from Phuket Town. Probably the cheapest and most convenient way to get around is to rent a motorcycle from one of the many shops around the island.
