I needed a beach weekend and this is the only resort built right on Karon beach, so that decided it! Karon is one of my favorite beaches in Phuket - it's the right mix of entertainment and peace, plus the beach goes on forever.
The room was spacious and not quite as luxurious as I was expecting for $200 per night, but it was fine. The view of the beach from the balcony was divine - definitely worth upgrading to the seaview room. And the A/C worked well and there was a mini fridge I stocked with cheap snacks from 7-11.
Even though the beach is just a few steps away, there's a large pool area with loungers and a swim up bar. It's a great place for relaxing and the resort and beach were pretty quiet in early November as it's still a bit rainy.
I would definitely recommend it for a relaxing beach holiday. It would be a good choice for families too.
