Centara Karon Resort

Great location in the centre of Karon

Located a few minutes’ walk from the pristine white sands of Karon Beach and overlooked by the forest covered hills behind, the Centara Karon Resort Phuket occupies an idyllic location for a relaxed beach break. Featuring lush gardens, numerous facilities and four different residential sections, the resort is ideal for families and couples looking for ample facilities and a tropical setting. Younger guests will love the kid's swimming pool and kid’s club where they can make friends and play away the hours whilst recreational activities for adults include two floodlit tennis courts, snooker, darts and watersports, among others.

For a pampering treat, relax away every day tensions with a trip to the soothing spa or sip your favourites drinks at one of the swim up bars available at all three of the swimming pools. Alternatively, head to the Mix Bar where you can enjoy some pool, watch live sports or just relax in trendy and laidback settings.

For meals, two dining options await, serving Thai and international cuisine including Italian dishes whilst for a carefree and relaxing option, full and half board options are available.  Wi-Fi is available for a fee.

Excellent resort in a prime location

Our second visit to the Centara Karon Beach Resort (last visited Dec 2018) and again we could not fault our overall holiday experience. The hotel is in a prime position not far from the beach and all the amenities of Karon Beach. The rooms, restaurants, pool area and the staff are first class. We enjoyed the holiday so much that we have already booked for May 2020.

Nice place to spend in Karon

Burnaby, Canada

The hotel is located close to the beach- 10 min walking. Close to the main artery with restaurants and good food choices. The rooms are clean but the bathrooms presents small spots of mold here and there, some tiles are broken. The guests are smoking on their balcony and drinking long in the night. So... it's noisy from time to time. We had several times the A/C badly leaking in the unit. Staff recommended towels on the floor. Restaurant is very pricey in all events organized. It's better looking outside spending time and having good food at better prices. Breakfast options are varied and the food is really good. Pools are very clean and also the gardening all over well maintained.
