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.

  • Just a short walk to shops and restaurants
  • Ideal for families
  • Spacious tropical grounds

Fantastic place to stay!

Greater Wellington, New Zealand

We stayed at this resort in both 2017 and 2018 and it was fantastic on both occasions. Staff are friendly and always smiling and greeting you - they are particularly good, cheerful and playful with children. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable enough. Daily cleaning meant they remained nice and fresh and the air conditioning worked well when you came inside in the evenings for respite from the heat. The only negative with the rooms was the shower which surged between hot (so hot you had to jump out of the shower) and cold water constantly. We didn't bother with the mini-bar as it was cheaper to go down to the local shops and buy your own selection of refreshments at a ninth of the price. Buffet breakfast was provided as part of the package and is excellent. The food here is great (although we tended to eat out at lunch/dinner due to the cost outside being so much cheaper than the cost inside). Drinks are quite well priced (about 120 baht for cocktails or about $6 NZD). Happy hour at the pool bars gets you two for the price of one! We made the most of this. Don't bother with in house laundry which is very expensive - instead head out the gates and across the road are a couple of places which do an excellent laundry service at 50 baht a kilogram and have it ready for pick up that night. The swimming pools and other recreational facilities are fantastic and we certainly used them a lot. The only downside is the heavy amount of chemicals in the water which caused reactions on both mine and my wifes skin, but was nothing we couldn't resolve by going and getting some anti-allergy cream from the local chemist. The taxi booking service and tour booking service was reliable and efficient - we used both plenty over the course of both stays and never had a problem. In terms of location, the resort is positioned very close to the local shops and beach (Karon beach is very nice) and it is a short walk to Kata or simple drive over the hill to Patong, or the other direction to Old Phuket Town etc. The Naka Markets are about half an hour away and not to be missed! Can't recommend this place enough - we will go back in the future!
