Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket
Why him: A five-star resort complex on the very shore of Karon Beach.
This is not just a hotel. This is a full-fledged resort complex that fully complies with its five-star status. There are several residential buildings and penthouses, four outdoor pools, a garden, five different restaurants and a fitness center on its territory. There is also a separate SPA complex with massage and recreational treatments.
The hotel is also suitable for families. For children, there is a separate playroom and a special area by the pool with a shallow depth and water slides.
One of the most important advantages of the hotel is that trees, including rare and relic ones, are planted throughout its territory. In the local garden it is quite possible to hide from the heat. Also, the hotel is located near another popular Thai beach – Patong.
- Many interesting places in the department itself;
- Four swimming pools, garden;
- Rooms in penthouses and detached villas.
- No Russian speaking staff;

But one of the main advantages of the complex is the rooms.
The rooms have everything for a comfortable stay and stay. Each of them is equipped with a private balcony overlooking the beach and the Andaman Sea, a full bathroom (with a bathtub, which is generally a rarity for Asian hotels), a work area, air conditioning and other amenities.

Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort And Spa
Why Him: An inexpensive resort on Karon Beach with excellent infrastructure.
A four-star hotel, only slightly inferior in rating to its predecessors. It is also located in the first line, so Karon Beach can be reached on foot – just by crossing the road. The hotel has its own SPA center with massage and recreational procedures, a gym that works around the clock and 3 outdoor pools. In addition, some of Phuket's most popular attractions are located nearby.
The rooms have a balcony with sea views. There is also free Wi-Fi, a private bathroom, all necessary amenities and air conditioning. Rooms are cleaned daily, bed linen and towels are changed.
The hotel is suitable for families. There is a kids club on its territory. Themed parties are often held.
- Friendly staff, there are Russian-speaking staff;
- Delicious breakfasts, often included in the room rate;
- Beautiful area with lots of greenery.
- Slow internet in the rooms;
- Proximity to the mouth of the river, which is why the sea is not so clean;
- Long service in restaurants.
Sugar Marina Resort – ART – Karon Beach
Why him: Some of the best living conditions.
This four-star hotel, although located on the first line, cannot boast of a rich infrastructure. It features an outdoor pool with a spacious, sun terrace, a small fitness center, four restaurants (one of which serves breakfast buffet) and two bars.
But the rooms are distinguished by excellent living conditions. They have a free minibar, updated daily, a bathroom with a separate bathtub, and air conditioning. Towels and bed linen are changed daily. Laundry, tour desk and car rental services are also available.
The hotel offers free beach facilities such as mats, towels, slippers and other essentials.
- High level of service;
- Varied breakfast with lots of fruits;
- Good infrastructure around the hotel.
- There is an old building with uncomfortable rooms;
- Not very friendly staff, no Russian speaking staff;
- No safes or wardrobe.
Woraburi Phuket Resort & Spa
Why it is: A budget four-star hotel located on the first line.
Like the top five-star hotels in the rating, this one is located on the so-called 'first line' – to get to Karon Beach, you just need to cross the road. Unless it is awarded four stars – but that is why it is suitable for a budget holiday.
Nevertheless, the hotel has quite good infrastructure. It houses a fitness center, a spa with recreational treatments, a games club with billiards, several bars and restaurants, one of which serves buffet breakfast and the other is located right next to the huge outdoor pool.
The hotel staff are polite and friendly. Each guest is given sun loungers, towels and other beach accessories, the rooms have everything for placing luggage, they are cleaned daily. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to Patong Coast.
- Courteous, friendly and helpful staff;
- Large clean rooms;
- Good combination of price and infrastructure.
- No Russian speaking staff;
- Poor Wi-Fi
- Noisy, poorly performing air conditioner.
The front village
Why it is: Inexpensive hotel with a huge pool and hydromassage.
This four-star hotel, unlike its predecessors, is located a little further from the 'first line'. Karon Beach is within walking distance from the entrance. But the hotel compensates for this inconvenience with a well-developed and rich infrastructure, as well as a good location – the view from the rooms overlooks the mountains and tropical gardens.
The hotel has a huge outdoor pool that can be seen from windows and balconies, a tour desk with guided tours and car rentals, a restaurant with regional buffet style breakfasts, a spa with recreational treatments and a hot tub.
The uncrowded beach near the hotel will be a pleasant feature. Therefore, there it is quite possible to relax and enjoy the romance of Karon Beach at night. The hotel is well suited for couples and singles.
- Large, beautiful rooms;
- Secluded, cozy atmosphere;
- Friendly staff with good knowledge of English.
- Access to the pool for a fee only;
- The beach is poorly equipped;
- Located away from the tourist and entertainment center of Phuket.
Sea & Sky Karon
Why him: Ideal for family or friends.
Unlike the others in the ranking, this is not really a hotel. It's kind of like 'short-term rental apartments'. Essentially, guests are given a separate two-bedroom home with a pool, superb views and maid service. Thus, this hotel is perfect for an extended getaway with family or friends.
However, it is worth considering that the infrastructure on the territory of this 'hotel' is simply absent. There is only an outdoor pool. Breakfast, entertainment and drinks become the concern of the tourist himself. However, the rooms have a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, free Wi-Fi and everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The hotel is located away from the coastline – the beach can be reached in 15 minutes at a leisurely pace. On the other hand, it is located on a mountain, and from the terrace – as well as from the 'infinite' pool – there is an excellent view of the city, tropical gardens and the sky.
- Quiet and comfortable;
- Beautiful view;
- 'Infinite' rooftop pool.
- Located on a steep hill;
- Some apartments have old furniture;
- There are practically no staff.
