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.

  • Great location in Karon Beach
  • Family rooms
  • Choice of traditional or contemporary accommodation
  • Wide range of dining options

Amazing

Wallingford, United Kingdom

Wow! What an amazing two week holiday I’ve had here! Thailand is beautiful and this hotel is a must. Breakfast was really good and lots to choose from, there was an egg station where you could choose what egg you wanted which includes an omelette which is amazing! Breakfast also included fruit, bacon, sausages, a salad bar, yogurts and lots of different pastries to choose from. The room was very big and clean it included a mini fridge you can take what you want and then your charged at the end it had a choice of beer, coke and water although you do get two free bottles of water a day which was really helpful to have. The shower was lovely had a choice of two shower heads and your given quite a few complimentary toiletries. There are two pool areas which are lovely a few days we struggled getting a sun bed, they don’t like you to reserve beds early but I would recommend it otherwise your left nowhere to sunbathe which is frustrating it would be handy if they had more beds put out. The cleaners are very good and leave the room very nice and tidy every day leaving fresh towels in the room. The room also includes a kettle with all sorts of tea and coffees there for you. The beach is a 5 minute walk away which is lovely and only 100bhat for a sun lounger which is super cheap. On arrival we met with a lady who told us about lots of different activities we chose to go to phiphi island and the elephant sanctuary which are both AMAZING and would highly recommend there amazing day outs which include a buffet lunch. The hotel doesn’t have any entertainment or a bar where you can sit and relax if you didn’t want to leave the hotel but there are endless restaurants and bars just outside the hotel. Karon has a few lively bars which are around a 10-15 min walk. If you are looking for a better night life get a tuk tuk to patong Bangla road which is 400bhat and has far to many bars to count and has better deals than Karon. Karon is a lovely place to stay the food is so cheap it’s worth looking around and not going in the first restaurant you see as we found some restaurants where you could get a meal for two including drinks for 500 bhat which is only around £11. The hotel owns a few restaurants which are just outside of the hotel and on arrival you will be given 10% discount cards for those restaurants we ate in both and they were both very good but a bit more expensive than the restaurants further out. Staff are really friendly and try and help you as much as possible there was a few times where the language barrier was difficult whilst calling the reception so would recommend going down there and speaking to somebody face to face it can be a lot easier! Over all an amazing hotel and would love to come back. I’ve attached some images of the restaurant food owned by the hotel.

Comfortable nice rooms, good brekfast great staff

Minster on Sea, United Kingdom

Stayed here for a week with a swim up room, it was beautiful dark furniture with crisp white linen with a splash on red for cushions and throw. The floor and walls are all white with a bathroom that is the length of the room, you walk through the shower to get to the sunken bath which looks out to the pool. Nice toiletries are left for you as well as swim towels and nice fluffy white towels for inside your room, flip flops and light cotton dressing gowns are provided too. You really need the flip flops as the floor can get wet and then a bit slippery. beds are comfortable, you have a TV which you can hire dvd's if you want to from the reception staff. Tea coffee making facilities and also a mini bar which it so cheap as with a lot of things in Thailand. This combined with the fact that the pool is just outside by your patio area with stairs going directly into it, and a seat with a Jacuzzi button too, you have your own chairs on is a real bonus. Our stay was very comfortable and we recommend it maid service every day, towels were change most days although we did not need them to be fresh swim towels daily. Great snack bar with drinks form 10 to 7 the times of the pool, I think it does need more loungers as they get reserved (even they don't like you to) very early in the morning, my solution was to be a Lillo and bob around the pool all day great way to keep cool and get a tan as well, very relaxing. We had a bed and breakfast the breakfast was served in he restaurant area, which was outside, the staff were great, lots of tea and coffee good choice of things to eat, bacon goes really quickly and there is a chef to cook eggs in lots of different ways for you.
