Karon Beach Hotels

Sunlight hits the golden sand, giving it pearlescent hues which contrast with the turquoise sheen of the sea and the jade of the tropical forest. Apart from the chattering of birds, all is quiet. So begins another morning in this jewel of the Andaman, early-morning runners hitting the beach as the loungers and parasols are set up, while those who’ve been out in the bars and clubs haven’t long stumbled back to their hotel. It’s a little slice of paradise.

Things to see

The more laid-back and charming sister to Patong Beach, Karon Beach is a beguiling place to soak up the sun. The beach is relatively uncrowded, with loungers aplenty. But it’s not without activity either – if you get bored of lying around and enjoying the gorgeous sea views, then why not browse Karon Bazaar? It’s filled with colourful beachwear to up your sunbathing fashion game, as well as bars serving up ice-cold beer. If the kids need something a bit more active to do, the nearby Dino Park Mini Golf is a diverting place to go, where they’ll putt their way through mystical, dinosaur-filled forests. For a spiritual high, head up to Big Buddha. This massive statue is completely covered in dazzling white jade, which catches the sunlight, radiating it around the verdant mountains. As the tinkling of prayer bells catches on the breeze, it’s impossible not to feel utterly zen.

From glamorous, 5-star resorts to budget guesthouses and hostels, all the hotels in Karon Beach revolve around the fabulous views and beachy, tropical island lifestyle. In the luxury Karon Beach hotels, you’ll be treated to elegant suites with generous balconies which make the most of the stunning sea and mountain scenery. The kids will be well entertained, with onsite waterparks and supervised activities, while you can relax in the spa or in a poolside cabana, with cocktails on tap.

Where to stay

For an all-inclusive, luxury resort stay, the southern end of Karon Beach in the Ban Kata Khiri district is the place to stay. You may find little reason to step out of your resort hotel, with all they offer onsite, but this area isn’t far from the centre of Karon Beach if you do want to get out an about. Central Karon Beach is the place to be for a good value hotel and easy access to the gorgeous beach, while staying a little further north, in Ban Wanna, is ideal if you’re looking for a youthful, buzzing nightlife scene.

How to get to Karon Beach

Located on the western side of Phuket island, Karon Beach can be reached in about an hour from Phuket International Airport. There’s a good system at the airport, allowing you to purchase a voucher ensuring a flat rate for the taxi ride there. Minibuses are also available for a cheaper price, though the journey takes longer, as they stop off at several places. For getting around the island, motorbike taxis, tuk-tuks, and taxi cabs all offer competitive rates, or you can hire your own set of wheels to go off exploring. Buses also connect Karon Beach with other major locations.
