Good location in Kata Beach”
The hotel is within walking distance to local restaurants, massage, 7-11 and 5mins walk to Kata Beach. Very friendly staff and big rooms. Mini bar comes with water, Oreo cookies, coke, sprite & orange juice and replenishes daily. Big bed is made of 2 single beds rather than a king bed, not a big deal since it's very comfortable. Umbrellas, extra towels for beach, robes, flip flops provided. Buffet breakfast is adequate with rice/noodles, dishes, toast/pastries, salads, egg counter & cereals. Pool is clean. Only con is drivers may mix up this hotel with other branches of Sugar Marina, so make sure when booking day trips to provide address correctly and alight car/van only after confirming it's the correct one. One driver dropped us at another Sugar Marina and we were too tired after island hopping to notice until it was too late. Had to pay 200baht for a short 5mins drive (too far to walk and it was raining). Overall good value hotel.
We had a very pleasant stay at sugar marina surf. Location was perfect and rooms were fully equipped and really functional. Everything was thought of with care. We arrived on my birthday and the staff surprised me with a cake and bday song...really thoughtful. Breakfast was adequate and nicely prepared. The facilities were great as well...pool, gym and even a boxing area. The only thing that could be better is a little bit more flexibility. We requested for late check out but they only allowed 1 room so our friend had to move in with us. We would understand if they were fully booked but they were not. We only stayed for 2 days but we would definitely stay in sugar marina surf again when we visit Kata next time. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Very nice hotel in Kata - 5 mins walk to the beach”
We really enjoyed our stay at Sugar Marina Surf. They have 2 - 3 different menus for breakfast for the sake of variety. My birthday was one of the day when we were there and we got a birthday cake to celebrate, which is a very nice touch from the staff and the hotel. We also really enjoyed the pool and all the beach commodities that they provide to us. Over all, we definitely recommend this hotel if you want to have a nice time in Kata area 😎
Convenient Resort to mostly everywhere ”
Stay there for 4 days 3 nights, I would recommend this resort as it's very convenient to move around and Kata Beach is just across the big canal though it's smelly along the canal. It's also just a stroll walk to Karon Beach. I had a pool access room. The pool was not really that big and clean and there's mosquitoes in the room. You need to always ensure the balcony door is closed. The only good is u can just go in the pool from your room and also to the suntan area without the hassle of out from your room to the pool and suntan. If pool is not important. I would suggest going for other rooms which is cheaper. The bathroom is good and i like the way how the bath tub was separated from the shower room unlike some hotels which combined together. I feel the corridor leading to the room was a bit dim. I like the washing point before entering the resort where u can washed your leg full of sand after coming back from the beach. Other than that, the rest are quite ok.
The stay at the Sugar Marina was great and within easy walking distance of Kata Beach which was by far the best beach out of Karon,Patong. The staff were really helpful and friendly and always had a smile on their face. The only down side was the noise in the room from the aircon which you need on with the heat and humidity and it was pretty loud. That was the only thing I could add as a suggested improvement. GREAT STAY WOULD GO BACK.
I use Phuket as my enroute stop to London and this is my 5th or 6 th stay , the reception team always delightful . Breakfast great and kata away from the grunge of Patong , the beAch more suitable for a swim than Karon and its current and surf. There is a little bit of noise next door with a bus of a new hotel but such is life I will be back
This place is a gem! It's perfectly located (about a 5-8 minute walk to Kata beach or a 4 minute tuk-tuk ride to Karon beach), away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms were very clean, bathrooms come with a tub and a stand in shower, the breakfast was excellent with a wide spread, the pool is great. I could go on and on. But what makes this hotel incredible is the small attention to detail. The rooms come with two umbrellas, beach towels, a large mat for the beach, slippers, bathrobes, mini bar that is restocked every day and is complementary(!), a locker for your valuables..I might be missing a few others. This place is just great. The only down side (not really a down side for us) is the construction next door but it's limited to the day time. They stop around 5pm so it's nice and quite all night. All in all, this place is just perfect!
Urban chique hotel in beach town”
Excellent stay at Sugar Marina for a fabulous price! Only 5 min. walk to Beach. Motorcycle rental place next door - very friendly, speak good english. Good mix of western and Asian buffet - lots of choice. Friendly staff and fabulous pool. All still quite new and looking fresh and clean. Loved our stay, will be back!
Hip modern hotel in Kata”
We loved everything about this hotel. It's stylish, hip, and clean with big rooms and great amenities and facilities. We enjoyed our stay so much that we now want to try all the Sugar Marina resorts.
Near Beach, Nice Hotel”
I will stay at Sugar Marina Resort again if i have chance to come to phuket. My first time stay at access pool room. It was amazing. I love it.
It was excellent. We stayed for 3 nights and the staff is very helpful. they have free drink in the room. The swimming pool is quite good although we did not swim cause we couldn't find time. So suggest not to book pool access room if you dont swim everyday. Bed is comfortable although the king size bed is combined by two single beds. Breakfast is good but not many choices. One thing special is that they carve pattern on fruit. Location is very good. 3 to 5 mins walk to Kata beach. One good Italian and Japanese food restaraunt just few steps from hotel. If you would like to try Thai massage, there is one Oriental Massage which is also near around 5 min walk and it is next to Ibis hotel. We had a very pleasant stay here and if possible, we will be back again.
Great Resort good located but.... ”
We spent three nights there. We had a big bed and a couch. The Couch we used for our baby and the three of use slept in the bed. Really good mattress. We booked a room with view to the city but we got one room with view to the pool. Room and bathroom are big and clean. Balcony also big. Breakfast was great. The Resort Swimmingpool is clean but could be more clean. Big enough for swimming. Our first Accomondation was without Swimmingpool so we enjoyed to have one for the last three days of our stay in phuket. Only thing we didn’t know before was that there is a big construction work going on behind the Swimmingpool and they finished quiet late. So many noise at the pool. But if you don’t care about this matter is all good. From the room you can’t here the construction work if the balcony door is closed. The gym is small but useful. There is also the room for boxing which I used once. For the Agoda price I would say is a good Resort. Thank you!
Awesome hotel (resort) ”
Great value for money in a brilliant location close to Phukets best beach (Kata). Friendly and professional staff, awesome buffet breakfast. Great swimming pool, gym, muay thai training room... My 7th visit to my favourite hotel in Phuket. Very highly recommended..
Value for money”
This is one of the best and value for money hotel in Kata. Hotel staff is friendly, room is comfy (pool access), near to seven eleven and restaurants. Go to Kata Karon Food Fair which is few minutes walk on the left once you step out from hotel. This food court serve tasty and cheap seafood. The only downside is u have to take about 15 to 20 minutes walk to beach (go through the shortcut opposite seven eleven) and keep the glass door close in the room to avoid mosquitoes especially in late evening.
Nice & Comfortable”
Had 2 nights stay and we enjoyed the place. Room size is just nice and clean. It would be better if the room lighting is a little more brighter. Pool is fantastic. The receptionist were helpful and can speak Mandarin. No problem looking for food and drinks outside of the hotel. Kata beach is within walking distance from hotel. Motorcycle rental is just outside of the hotel (TBH200 per day). Taxi from Airport to Hotel is about TBH800 (day time) or TBH1000 (night time).
Great location and cool theme!”
The hotel has a great location, it's accessible to many kinds of entertainment. It's only a 5 minute walk to the Kata beach. It had a nautical theme and it provided us with many necessities for the beach such as a beach mat, beach towel, beach flip-flops and do on. The bed was huge and very comfortable. We had a balcony which was nice for chilling. My only complaint would be the lack of channels on the TV for when we were staying indoors and the inconsistency of the hot water. Nevertheless it didn't bother us that much. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend for people to stay here.
Nice, comfortable and modern hote”
We were stay 4nights here. Facilities like gym , boxing and swimming pool is very good . Room with Comfortable bed, umbrellas and also beach mat for you to carry to beach side. Breakfast just nice . One thing I would like to mention is the cleanliness, saw the smoke dust on desk when I check in and I wonder why the floor is wet all the time,no matter early morning when I wake up or afternoon after we went back from island hopping. But my friend next room won't happen this on floor. Staffs is friendly and helpful , they can speak many languages. And Thanks staff Ying who surprised me with birthday cake. Hotel surrounded by many restaurant, 7-11 , family mart, pharmacy and ofcourse massage shop. A very nice food court just right after hotel. 150meter walking distance to Kata Beach. Overall is good for this hotel.
Kashif from Qatar”
Good service, cleanliness and friendly staff. walking distance to beach. Enjoyed the stay with marina resort surf Kata.
Perfect stay ”
We staid there for three nights at the end of hour 2 weeks holidays. This hotel was the cleanest and coolest place we've been during travelling. Nicely decorated rooms. Big pool and affordable snack Menue and an amazing breakfast. The staff is super friendly and happy to help. Should we go back to Kata beach, than definitely to this hotel! Thanks
Excellent service,value for money, cozy setting”
On the night of my bday (May 1), the night duty manager sing a bday song for me and bringing me cake as well. I think its going beyond quality service. All staff are friendly as well. I will definitely comeback and recommend to friends. I will give empahasis to the bathroom also..its big enough and with bath tub! Thank you sugar marina!
