Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket (SHA Extra 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! "

Thavorn Palm Beach Resort Phuket (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"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."

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."

Memory Karon Resort (SHA Certified)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"+ the environment is nice ,peace and quiet ,that's exactly what I want + the stuff are very nice and friendly + breakfast is good, 150 B, the restaurant the on the top , so you can see the mountain view + the location is like 5 mins by Motor to the Karon beach, or you could walk like around 30 minutes to the beach, not near but not that far +near by there are many nice restaurant, I would recommend Elephant cafe ,I almost go there every day , and next to Elephant cafe there is a soup noodle , '' must try''. I really love this. There is night market in the Temple in the evening, many interesting things and street food, which is also nice. - only one thing I am not very happy with ,is that I asked the lady to change my bed sheet, but im 100% SURE SHE ONLY CHANGED THE PILLOW CASE ,NOT THE BED SHEET. :( when I asked her, she said she has changed ,but I do not want to argue or discuss this, so just let it be... Anyway its so nice living here, I would live here again if I came to Karon "

Secret Cliff Resort & Restaurant
Karon,Karon - View on map
"I would stay at the Secret Cliff every time I go back to Phucket, it was the best hotel I've stayed at and I cannot praise the place or the staff enough. Although it is more expensive than some of the other hotels in Karon I would say its well worth the money. The offer free transfers to the beaches and will help with any tour options or scooter hire. And they have a great little restaurant called coco pizza which I loved. The infinity pool was great for sunset cocktails."

The Village Resort & Spa (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"Booked this because it had good reviews on trip advisor. It did not let us down. The location approx 10 mins in tuk tuk from Patong and 3 min walk from Karon beach was great as it was out of the hustle and bustle, but near enough if we wanted to dip in. The individual villas were lovely with a huge bathroom, big enough bath for two, separate shower. Also we had a separate living area and a bedroom with a super king size bed, and a separate walk in wardrobe ( garden room). The food at the restaurant was superb and not too badly priced for hotel food .. I fact we ate here most nights because the setting at night time was idyllic with the garden and pool lit up, and provided an environment free from the noisy brashness of Karon Beach restaurants. The Aircon in the villa was very effective, if I had to pick one minor fault ( and it is a minor one) the bedroom Aircon only seemed to have 3 fan speeds of fast, super fast and turbo-light speed fast which was provided a bit too much air turbulence at night when trying to sleep. On the whole I would recommend this as a place to stay and would gladly go myself again."

Hotel IKON Phuket (SHA Plus+)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"We stayed at Ikon hotel for 1 week. We booked a mountain view room. We had view on the swimming pool and partial view on the ocean. The hotel is on a main road to Karon Beach. A bit far from the beach but it makes the hotel quiet. There's a free shuttle to the beach twice a day. The room was very nice and comfortable with a good size. The bed was huge and very comfortable too. Breakfast was a nice start for the day. Good choice of eastern and western food that changed every day. Service at breakfast (like all the staff of the hotel) was very friendly and professional. You just can't go wrong picking hotel Ikon unless you want a beach hotel. Everything is very new and done with taste. Overall, it's a very good value for money. I will definitely go back if I travel again to Phuket. "

Centara Villas Phuket Hotel (SHA Extra Plus)
Karon,Karon - View on map
"We were looking for a place where the place itself can give us the feeling of holiday in the east, specially in Thailand, with green surrounding and intimate accomodation, not the big kind of 10-15 floors hotel. We were delighted, it was just what we wanted, it was hugh to wake up here, to have breakfast, to walk in the evening on the pathways and the steps. We loved the steps, but its true, You must be in good form! Only come here if You take Your time, no hurrying without swaeting ;-) You have two small swimmingpools, very nice, good for a siesta, maybe not enough to spend the whole day there. You can access the Karon Beach from the swimmingpool by 3 min. walk, where You can have nice and cheap food compared to the "hotel" restaurants expensive prices. We ate once at the Centara, and never again. Food was great, but it is everwhere for much more less. From Centara there is no way to walk in the evening to nice evening or shopping places, You are rigth at the top of the Karon Beach part. So or You take always a tuk-tuk, which costs You every ride 200-400 bhat or You hire a motorbike (we did) for 250 per day, it is realy worth, and so You can go everywhere, find other beaches, like Kata beach, nicer than Karon, or go down to Rawai beach from where You can go to the Islands with longtail boot, and in the evening to Patong for nightlife."

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.
