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! "

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!"

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."

Chic Condo Karon
Karon,Karon - View on map
"Location ok depend on what you want ,when i check i cannot find any staff in the counter and i waited for awhile and Staff is helpful.i book Deluxe studio but when i check in my room is different from the Agoda picture i book . There's is no sofa and big TV , i heard from their staff because which i book the deluxe studio room no more and they just give me a room (Room is Big and Clean but i want is from what i book from Agoda not just giving just a room to comfort me) .I feel disappointed and i think management should not do that because that is a TRUST for customer and make sure customer will come back again and gives a good feedback review . Overall staff is great and friendly ,i will consider to book Chic Condo Karon again if i coming back to Phuket Karon due to confidence and TRUST . "

"Nice hotel in Karon beach. Big room, large and beautiful pools, great variety of breakfast. The room is a bit old, bad smell in the room and need to turn on air-con to very low temperature to make the smell gone. The room should be renovate."

Phuket Island View Hotel (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"By far they have the best masseuses in Phuket! We stayed in Thailand for almost a month and all of them were hands down, the best. They were very friendly and professional. We stayed at this particular hotel for 3 nights and regret switching to a different hotel. Karon Sea Sands Resort doesn't compare to this one. We had a deluxe bungalow, well worth it for more privacy and a bit more spacious than a standard room. The hotel is literally right across from the beach and minutes to Kata town. The only downside I would say is that they need to upgrade the tv's in the room and the staff doesn't speak English very well. So make sure you have a translator handy. When we visit Phuket again, we will definetely book this hotel again! Worth every penny."

Mandarava Resort and Spa Karon Beach (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"Outstanding hotel, luxurious, cool and in actual Thailand, because you're basically in the jungle. Pools are just amazing, my husband and I went to explore every single one (there's 5 in total) and it was so cool. The morning buffet was amazing and furnished, and there was few restaurants by 10min walk. Staff was very helpful and always smiling, which is very pleasant. Best hotel in Karon Beach."

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."

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."

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.
