The Old Phuket

Great central location in Karon

Built to replicate the architecture which can still be found around old Phuket town, The Old Phuket offers architectural fusion between old and new. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to stylish accommodation. Choose between The Sino wing, which is influenced by 19th century Sino-Portuguese, and the Serene Wing which is contemporary and immaculately designed. Whichever wing you choose, your room will be furnished with luxurious amenities, a spacious private balcony and a bed made up of soft linens.

The sands of Karon Beach are just in front of the hotel, and you are just steps away from the many restaurants and shops of the area. However, if you would rather not leave the resort – then you have the choice of seven bars and restaurants ranging from authentic Italian cuisine to local Thai fayre.

Fantastic staff and location; frequent issues

Perth, Australia

Let me firstly say that after moving to Patong the next night that Karon beach is far better than Patong - far less harassment, way cleaner beaches and a far more relaxed vibe. Old Phuket is a pretty property with lots of old Portugese charm and the staff are top notch. My pool view room was spacious with a recently renovated, and spectacular, bathroom. With that said, I struggled to get work done on my tablet because the wi-fi did not work on two occassions (from a one night stay) and the blinds to the bathroom, which looks out onto the pool (so others can see you in the shower) were crappy steel string-pull shutters and, wouldn't you know, got stuck.

Great location

Cheshire, United Kingdom

Due to having excursions booked every day we didn’t spend too much time in the hotel. But from what we saw of it you can’t ask for much more for the price you pay. We were upgraded to a lovely room on the top floor on the serene wing, with an amazing bathroom. The room was cleaned everyday. Our only complaint would be the maids were not the most friendly. We had the do not disturb sign on every night (we have been woken in other hotels in the past by the maid barging in). Yet the maids at this hotel didn’t seem to pay attention. The breakfast choice was decent, and there is enough for everyone. The pool area is small but the hotel was pretty quiet anyway. We had lunch a few times at the pool bar and it was great quality and a good price too. The chef Jack was great!
