Lovely Hotel in Lovely Phuket”

great interiors, friendly staff, reasonable price

I loved my stay in Centara Karon's The Terraces in Phuket! It was the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway with my sweetheart. I loved the personalized welcome kit, the lotus-scented bath essentials complete with shampoo, conditioner, soap, mouthwash, cotton buds, sunblock, sewing kit, shower cap. It was also such a pleasant surprise to find that the interiors were so modern and chic -- I think the website doesn't do justice to the actual interiors! I also loved the breakfast served in the posh restaurant Azure. I enjoyed an assortment of breads, rice, eggs, bacon, fresh fruits, yoghurt, etc. in a nice Zen-like place. I also enjoyed using the Terraces Pool as it had a fountain in the pool and a mini bar serving drinks like mojito and pina colada. ;) And because I needed to check my e-mails once in a while, I found Centara's business center very helpful. The internet rates are very reasonable for such a nice internet cafe. It would be helpful though if the staff spoke better English as there were times they couldn't understand my requests. Also, the taxi service taking us back to the airport was so rude. He drove so fast making me dizzy and I almost bumped my head to his backseat when he made an abrupt stop in one of the stop signs. He was also giving me and my boyfriend weird looks. But overall, I really enjoyed my stay at the Centara Karon Resort. It appealed so much to my architectural aesthetics. My boyfriend and I loved it so much we decided to stay there again should we return to Phuket or go to a place where there's a Centara hotel. Thanks Centara for making our romantic holiday so memorable! :)

Great family resort, very close to beach!”

buffet breakfast, three pools, location

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at Centara Karon Resort. We chose Karon beach because it is quieter than Patong beach, but has all the same amenities. Everything you need is right there, beach is a 5 minute walk, shopping, restaurants, and three great pools at the resort. Wifi is only free in a common area, however if you sign up for the Centara Hotels membership card (free), you can get wifi in your room at no charge. Breakfast buffet was perfect and abundant. The whole family loved the weekly pool party at the hotel.

A great beach holiday ”

We had a great week in the sun on Karon beach. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk away (no hotels are on the beach). The staff were excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was amazing. There were no problems with the internet. The only issue was on checkin they got mixed up and tried to give us a smaller room. I had my agora booking and after some insisting they went online and realised the mistake. If I hadn't been paying attention I would have been downgraded. After checkin the desk clerk escorted us to the room, which was refreshing. The hotel was fully occupied during our stay with mostly Russians, which wasn't a bad thing. In fact, most of the visitors at Karon were Russian. Every morning after breakfast we'd go to the beach and rent a couple on beach chairs and umbrellas. You gotta get there early (by 9am) or you may not get a chair. My better half isn't a good swimmer. Karon was perfect for her as the water gets deep slowly and wasn't rough. Every night we'd eat at 1 of the many restaurants. Great seafood of all kinds. Sushi too. We rode elephants one afternoon at a nearby place. It was the most expensive part of the holiday - about $50 each. It was the middle of February, so was a very busy place. If you want a real quiet holiday this probably isn't the destination for you. I was last in Phuket in 2000. The island of Phuket has changed a lot since then. It's becoming overcrowded and overdeveloped. That said, it was a great time.

Very Nice Resort, suitable for family with kids.”

Good Environment with good service. The room is big and tidy. The swimming pools are very good.

It is a very good experience for me to stay in Centara Karon Resort with my husband and 2 kids. We have a wonderful time there. The swimming pool with slides are the first attraction for kids. And the second one I like the most is the Children Center, which provide a very good facilities and staffs there. So that we can leave the kids there for an hour to have a rest. It is a very good experience for me, I think I will come again next time.

Delightful Stay”

Comfort.Location. Pools.

After an initial hiccup caused by being taken to a room with one of the worst views I have ever seen from any hotel of a bitumen car park and being told that was my ocean view room and that if I strained my neck leaning over and around the corner of the balcony that I could indeed see the ocean, I showed the guest relations lady a photo from their own website of the view that I was expecting and which I knew I had paid for and said this room was unacceptable,we waited 15 minutes for another room to be made ready. The second room was a major improvement on the first and after that we had a delightful stay at this lovely hotel. We could not fault anything about the rest of our stay and absolutely loved the area of Karon Beach. One thing we found a bit unusual was the location of the breakfast area and how we had to exit the main hotel and walk 20 metres or so across from the entrance of the hotel to the breakfast area,although because the weather was sunny this was not a big deal but I am not so sure that it would be great if it was raining.All in all a great hotel in a good location and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get out of the area of Patong and looking for a more relaxing and chilled out vibe than busy Patong.We love Karon and found many great and cheap places to eat or drink or get a massage just a short walk from the wonderful Centara.

Nice resort”

Carpe Diem staff very friendly, Kid club, food in the Lotus restaurant

We appreciate our stay in Centara Karon. It is a nice place where you feel in vacations. The room you have can make a difference, actually we changed room after the first night. Just a problem about baby sitting, for young children the baby sitters are not profesional, they send any staff from hotel and not well-trained. The kid club close at 17:45 , so there is no place for young baby to play in the evening. We book babysitting in the evening and she arrived with the high shoe ( can not run after the children ) Otherwise everything was nice. Food at the restaurant is good

walking distance to beach, quick access to eating places, great for family with young children

We had a great stay at Centara Karon. The service staff are friendly and prompt. The cabana was money well spent. The room comes with 2 queen beds and our very own outdoor jacuzzi. We have complimentary evening drinks throughout our stay as guests at the cabana. Our two children enjoyed the 3 pools and activities at the kids' club. With their babysitting service, we get to spend quality time alone without the kids as well. Overall, Centara Karon had made our maiden visit to Phuket a memorable experience. We will definitely return for our next visit.

we came to the centara with my wife's parents for the last leg of our month in thailand. we had stayed here 4 years ago on our honeymoon and had good memories. the hotel itself was fine, my wife and i stayed in the terraces in the main building while her parents stayed in the tropic location near the pool. prices as you'd expect were higher in the resort for most things but you can take advantage of the specials and happy hours while there. housekeeping were friendly and quick and all staff around the grounds as a whole were good to deal with. my father in law recently had knee surgery and the staff were great about transporting him (and usually the rest of us) around the grounds. another point is i had injured myself in the final days here as one of the pool ladder steps broke and injured my foot and leg. once we had spoken to the front desk they were quite good in paying the hospital costs and transport to and from the hospital, so for that i thank them.

Great hotel to stay with family. ”

My children had a great time at Centara Karon beach. The pool facility was great. Breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of food. And location is only a stone throw away from the beach. Would choose this hotel again if we come back to phuket.

Centara Karon”

Very close to the Karon Beach Shopping, bars, restaurants around area Travel
Need taxi/tuk-tuk to Patong

Stayed 3 days at Centara Karon Beach, right in the middle of Karon. Like the others at first I wasn't so sure about the area, but once you are in the resort area itself you know it wasn't a mistake choosing this hotel. The resort itself divided into 3 areas each with its own swimming pool. I had a great deal with Agoda to stay here. Great beach about 5 minutes walk, travel agent to Phi Phi island everywhere, and lots of places to eat with reasonable price.

Excellent staff, especially Tin, Joe and Mei in the kids club, the wonderful house keeper who made us the beautiful elephant towel on our bed and the fabulous Aoy who showed patience, care and kindness in helping me sort my problems from the terrible hotel we had just checked out of, and check in for the 2nd time this holiday at Centara Karon, even though I had no prior booking., so that we could enjoy the rest of our holiday. We had a wonderful stay and would love to come back.

Peace in the middle of chaos”

Location, staff, cleanliness

Trying to decide on a hotel for a stay in Phuket was challenging. The resort is calm and beautiful with 3 pools, two restaurants and many different types of accommodation. And just outside the entrance is the wonderful chaos and energy of Phuket. Couldn't ask for a better blend. I was given a courtesy upgrade and a lovely room near one of the pools. The room was spacious and quiet, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Staff is very courteous. Golf cart rides back to the room any time, including 3am! I had the breakfast buffet at both restaurants. Very nice, as you would expect. A good egg station, nice assortment of fruit, lots of tasty side dishes. Wifi has a fee, unless you sign up for their loyalty program. The front desk personnel kindly recommended the program. I filled out the forms and the wifi was active and free by the time I got to my room. Highly recommend it for a traveler who wants a little peace and respite from the craziness of Phuket.

Great family resort”

We really enjoyed our time at Centara. The location is great, short walk to the beach and lots of different restaurants close by. Pros: The kids pool and playroom were fantastic, the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was very clean and beds extremely comfortable! We had the pool room, which was lovely and spacious but the pool was very cold. Cons: I think the breakfast is adequate, but it's not as impressive as many other resorts I've stayed at (less options). I also found the 10% service charge on every restaurant order or room service to quickly add up. It made it expensive to eat in the resort and we ended up eating outside a lot of the time, as the resort restaurant was definitely not value for money. Overall, would recommend and stay again.

Comfortable and good value resort”

The for money, the pool and location in Karon

We arrived after about 16 hours of travelling and were told we had been upgraded to a room with a pool view (as had our teenage kids in their room). This room was on the top floor of the Traopicana or similar building, which did not have an elevator, which from reading internet reviews, was a problem for some people. It wasn't for us. The largest pool was directly outside our room, but as their was s separate childrens' pool some distance away, their was never too much noise. The prices in the hotel were reasonable and the breakfast buffet was quite good. The hotel is very large, and it was a 5 minute walk for us just to get to reception, however we didn't mind. The location was close to shops in Karon. If you want to be going to Patong everyday, don't stay here, as it's a 400 Baht tuk tuk ride each way. We would happily stay here again.

Great hotel in Karon!”

location, comfort, cleanliness

We had a great stay at Centara. Right smack in shopping area in Karon and near restaurants. Staff are very helpful. On our stay hot water was not working so we had to transfer to a different room. Breakfast buffet was good and can be improved. Overall great hotel.

Underwhelming”

Location and Carpe Diem team

Was an ok resort due to proximity to shops and the Carpe Diem team is very upbeat and gives much holiday atmosphere to this resort. However we stayed at a much nicer resort before arriving at Centara, the service level and customer service training accorded by the staff there obviously overshadows Centara Karon. Parents with children who decide to book this hotel with the expectation of highly trained babysitters or minders should be aware that leaving your children at the Kid's Club doesn't mean you can step out of the compound of the hotel. Both times I was there on different days there was only one minder (there could have been more, I don't know). Communication could be improved upon, our package included meals for 4 nights but we were not made aware of that upon check in, hence wasted a few nights. Bathrooms in the lagoon room was also dated and aged. This resort caters largely to Westerners, there were only a small handful of Asians, so manage your expectations. Breakfast staff was nice, cheerful and quick in the Lotus restaurant. All in all not a bad place for a holiday, but personally I would pay a little more for a better experience and not depend so much on the reviews in future.

Phuket holiday 2019”

Visited Centara Karon Resort in 2014, liked it then and still like it now 👍 Facilities, location and staff are great especially the staff where nothing is too much trouble to ensure your stay is a happy one. Not a lot has changed in the 5 year gap since we last stayed and some things need a refresh but considering the amount of people passing through it still has a lot to offer 😊
