"Best location away from noisy patong"
Clean and nice location, enjoyed the breakfast and the pool. Lovely beach BUT no free wifiGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the Beach"
Great location at the end of the beach, very quiet and friendly, attentive staff. Rooms are a little older and whoever designed the bathtub and shower should be shot! But other than that, we're looking forward to staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great short break in stunning location"
We stayed for two days during our holiday to thailand. It was a fab hotel, very friendly helpful staff. All rooms gave sea view. Right on the beach which staff are constantly trying to keep clean. Lovely pool area. Good food i. Restaurant and cafe. Lovely breakfast. Spa was ask good with offers for guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good for families, not a romantic getaway"
The resort was nice, right on the beach & good views from the balcony. The pools and outdoor bar were great and the staff were really friendly, as were the other guests. I wouldn't pick it as a romantic getaway though. The rooms are really noisy, you can hear everything, & I mean everything, that goes on in the rooms either side of you and from the […] hallway. The rooms are very dark so no good if you want to apply make up or are a girly girl who needs to use a mirror to get ready. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Beachside Location"
We had a 6 night stay last week and found both the Hotel and holiday very good, relaxing and fun. The views from the balconies and pools were fantastic and we would sit for hours enjoying those views with a few cocktails or Chang beer. The location was great on the beach and probably one of the best placed hotels in that area. There are other hotels […] that look lovely and had good reviews, but we chose this because it was directly on the beach and there was no road to walk down, or cross to get to it which is a bonus. The hotel staff were friendly and polite and we would definitely be going back to the Karon Beach Resort the next time we are in Phuket. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed there for 15 nights and everything was absolutely perfect we were happy with everything and the view was breathtakingGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little gem on the beachside"
Great location on the beachside! Pool side overlooks the beach for those that like the sea but not the sand!!! The beachside restaurant was fantastic and the Grilled seafood platter a must!!!!!! Good selection of shops and restaurants in the location. The tour organiser was great and had lots of information available! Request level 2 or 3 as some of […] the ground floor rooms are still recovering from a musty smell but if you kept the aircon on it was fine. I would definitely stay again but would be wary in peak season as the poolside could be very packed! But looks like it would be that way everywhere due to Thailand's popularity!!! I would go back for sure! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Location on the Beach"
Stayed 2 weeks in May -June 2012 Hotel position was close to shops and restaurants and quieter than Patong which suited us as seniors,We found the shower being over the bath was a steep rise to get in and out,Swimming Pools closed at 7pm should have been open longer as the beach had to much undertow to swim safely this time of the year, Kata Beach is […] a 10 min walk and a better option for swimming.

"Karon Beach Resort - The only place to stay!"
The hotel was in a fantastic position on Karon Beach. Far enough away to be peaceful but close enough to some great restuarants and shopping. Two Chefs - just up the road... Highly recommended! We will be staying at Karon Beach Resort Again!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent location on the beach, staff very friendly and efficient. The only downside was the bar closed at 10.00pm but there were plenty of good bars just outside the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommended for all."
This was our first time to Thailand and were not sure what to expect, we are a well traveled couple so can be fussy as to where we stay. We loved this hotel, it was clean, well positioned (right on the beach), quiet but with lots to do as soon as you soon as you walked out the hotel door, the staff were friendly, met lots of lovely people who were also […] staying there and we cant wait to go back. We had breakfast included in the price which was well worth it and there was a good variety of food. The hotel is a little tired however the rooms are roomy with very comfortable beds, and all have a balcony with outdoor seating. All rooms have a great view of the pool and the beach and the wonderful sunset. Food and drinks are a little more expensive than what you can get at the restaurants outside the hotel but still reasonable. When you walk out the hotel doors you have about 50 options of places to eat and drink and also lots of places for massages and shopping. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Karon Beach is a lot quieter than Phuket and Patong which is what we like but still lots to do. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The best beachfront resort in Karon"
We really enjoyed our stay at Karon Beach Resort. It is the ONLY resort that is actually on the beach, with stunning views of Karon and amazing beach sunsets. The beautiful, friendly & always helpful staff made our stay in Phuket amazing. The rooms are nice but the only downfall is the beds. We booked a king bed but found that they were 2 king singles […] pushed together (as we found them in most rooms after talking with other guests) The buffet breakfast is satisfying with lots of choices. The hotel is in a conveinient location, close to local resturants, markets and well known Patong only a 10min tuk-tuk ride away. I would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone & would also stay there again :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Karon Beach Resort and Spa-great location."
We stayed for 6 nights in early April. We had a ground floor room which interconnected with our son's room. I would recommend a ground floor room if you have children as it makes it easy to get to the pool and beach. However, try and request a room away from the pool bar and restaurant area as a band plays every night until about 10pm. Annoying if you […] have small children trying to sleep. The food at the restaurant was fantastic-couldn't fault it. Had trouble getting a hot shower at 7am every morning. The breakfast buffet was good-lots of Western and Asian choices. The view from the tables was fantastic-looking over the beach. The pool was small but nice. Only criticism was that there was not a lot of room around the pool for kids to play. The sun loungers took up all the available space. It would have helped if the staff were proactive in roaming the pool and asking for drink/food orders. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Karon Beach Resort & Spa testimonial"
To my opinion this hotel is perfect for its location though it has a few negative things evluated above in questionnaire. It was my 2-nd stay at this hotel and I think if go to Thai-Phuket I certainly will stop there again. Hope that room maintenance and codition will be renewed to my next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Karon Beach Resort"
Location of this hotel is great, you only have to walk down a few steps and you're on the beach. Pool area is located overlooking the beach. Breakfast was ok - great omelette station but would have liked a greater selection of cereals and the option of skim milk or low fat. Staff are very friendly and polite. Shops and restaurants are all in walking […] distance with plenty of taxis and tuk tuks to take you wherever you go. Highly recommend staying at this resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"U can't get closer to the beach! Awesome setting!"
You open your bedroom door and the waves are right there. The setting is gorgeous and the people are very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is about 5 - 8 minutes by car or scooter, into Patong. The breakfast was quite good, the pool area very nice and location into Karon and Kata within easy walking distance. Generally a good choice and would stay […] here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel that I would highly recommend. Situated right on the beach front with amazing views of Karon Beach and awesome sunsets from our balcony. Following a flight delay management assisted us in arranging interconnecting rooms on our second day when initially not available and also provided a 'complimentary' birthday cake for a family member. Buffet […] breakfast chef made the best omelet along with many selections from cereals, fruits, pastries and hot foods to choose. Pool has a great swim up bar and beach/pool towels were changed daily. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Recommend 'The Sorrento' for cheap tasty meals and 'Two Chefs' for a bit more indulgence. Karon Beach is much quieter and less crowded then Patong...exactly what we were after. Only negatives..Wifi needs to be purchased & no spa/hot tub. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great place to stay"
I would definitely recommend Karon Beach Resort to any prospective traveller. Having stayed in Patong on our previous visit we were looking for something a lttle less lively and more relaxing. Karon Beach Resort was well located with lots of lovely restaurants close by. I would recommend Kata beach though as opposed to Karon for swimming, Kata is only […] a short walk from the Resort and is much safer than Karon. Karon beach had strong currents and swimming was not advised there however at Kata, just a little walk away, was much safer. If you wanted to go to Patong it was only about a 10 - 15 minute Tuk Tuk ride, not far at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location & Good Friendly Staff"
Karon Beach Resort has a Great Location on the Beachfront, but close enough to Shopping, Restaurants & Bars. Great Pool Bar with Cheap Cocktail. Breakfast is Good but The General Dining is ok but nothing too fancy. The Hotel is a bit Outdated and will require some renovations very soon. The Only thing I will say We will be back to This Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Gutes Hotel an ausgezeichneter Lage"
Das Hotel befindet sich 'direkt' am öffentlichen Strand von Karon. Es ist das einzige Hotel, welches ohne durch eine Strasse getrennt direkt am Strand liegt. Das Hotel verfügt über sehr wenig Freizeitangebote. Auch waren für mein Empfinden die beiden Pools sehr heruntergekühlt und zu erfrischend. Das Morgenbuffet fällt spärlich aus und es hat alles […] was man benötigt jedoch keine grosse Auswahl. Das ZImmer war sauber und wurde jeden Tag mit frischen Tüchern bestückt. Leider war die Poolanlage schon morgens um 0700 Uhr fast zum grössten Teil besetzt, obwohl bis 1000 Uhr keine Personen am Pool waren. Alles in allem, kann ich das Hotel leider nicht weiterempfehlen, da es sich die Lage zu gute macht und sonst nicht viel bieten kann. Für einen Preis von ca. 200.- CHF pro Nacht erwarte ich mehr von einem Hotel. Auch sind keinesfalls alle Zimmer mit Meerblick. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good location but that is all."
positive: the location. it is one of the only hotels located direct on the beach, and the beach is fantastic. clear blue water, no waves, beautiful white sand and lots of tropical fish. negative - very rude staff. more intersted in talking to each other, playing with the phone. one day I ordered lunch at the pool. it was cleared the next day, a full […] 24 hrs later, full with ants. the receptionist was chewing gum and didn't even great you properly and when I asked for some paper to write down my complaints, she just handed me a piece of paper and didn't even bother to ask what was wrong. - not enough lounges at the pool. you had to be there at 7 am or even earlier to claim your chair and you had to stay there. witnessed many fights at the pool area. - smell in the room.

Location is the selling point of this hotel. It is just several steps to the beach. Also it is very easy to find a restaurant near the hotel. One of the disappointing thing is that the hotel did not provide free WiFi. Moreover, the room looked old. It seems the hotel has not renewed for a very long time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome hotel resort to celebrate my birthday. "
08/19/14 Sharon Russel A
Before we decided to go away for holiday, we've been flicking the book from the travel agent which hotel we are going to stay. We seen this photo of Beyond Resort Karon. And we thought, o yeah let's try this. We arrived at the hotel and at the front my first impression, o yeah. The porter boy was nice and had a good smile on his face. He carried our bag through the stares to 3rd floor. The lady at the reception was very nice.I think her name is "Aoi". She was talking to me in Thai, assuming I am Thailander. She was funny. Same same face she said. Our room 317 was spectacular. And the bed so big. We open the curtain and there it goes, the awesome view... I took photo and upload it on Facebook for my friends to see what I'm seeing.... A room with the view. All the staff we encountered with were very nice and friendly. The housekeeping staff are friendly. The kitchen staff are friendly... I think they end up talking about me ( in a nice way)☺ The food were very nice, bacon and egg, pancake. The only thing that we would like is cable TV. More hangers for clothes. And the passage outside the bedroom door needs an open Window for fresh air coz a bit stuffy as we walk a long. My first trip to Thailand and it was worth it. I recommend it.
"Repeat as good as the first"
08/15/14 Stephen O
We stayed on the 3rd floor (room 323) for 6 days which gave a perfect view of the beach from the bed. We had stayed in 2008 and had asked for the same room which was great. Enjoyed the pool, the beach and access to the shops and restaurants at that end of Karon Beach. We liked the location for breakfast but particularly the night and lunch restaurant. Watched the fabulous sunset during happy hour followed by a good Western and Thai menu for dinner. Staff were all eager to help and friendly. Highly recommended.
"Truly relaxing from the moment we arrived."
08/10/14 Ruffty70 New mills
Fantastic place to stay. Right on the beach with amazing views from the rooms. We requested a third floor after reading other reviews and on arrival we were handed the key to room 310. I would imagine all rooms have great views but the third floor must give you more panoramic views than the lower levels. Personal preference would determine this. The lower floors enable you to walk straight onto the pool area which is great but you do lose privacy here. Again, personal preference would determine so not saying this is a negative. Staff are always on hand should you need anything but give you the room to maintain your personal space and privacy. All areas of the hotel are spotless and the maintenance of these standards seem to be on going throughout the day but not in a manner that gets in ones way. The food in the restaurant is beautifully presented and tastes amazing. Whilst one can buy food cheaper out in the street their prices are not that much dearer. We have booked a two week stay here and currently just over halfway through our stay and my wife and I are already saying we will be sad to leave. A couple of negatives which I am slightly resentful to add but given this review is our honest opinion it would be wrong to leave out. The mini bar is very over priced but that is the same in almost any hotel so this in itself is not a major disadvantage to the Beyond resort hotel The second negative is wardrobe space and lack of coat hangers. Now I'm reasonably confident that if we asked for additional hangers they would be provided but as we haven't we can't knock them to hard on this point. Not much they could offer in way of additional storage as a short term measure but there is plenty of space to add additional wardrobe storage if they wanted to. In all, the staff are very friendly and extremely capable, the hotel is managed very effectively and we wouldn't hesitate in returning to this hotel or recommending it to anyone interested in staying here. Our thanks to all the staff for helping make our first trip to your beautiful country a memorable one. Bless you.

We stayed at Beyond Resort for 8 nights and were very impressed with this hotel. Right on the beach with wonderful views from all rooms, this resort was just what we wanted. Being child free was a bonus for us (retired folk!) The staff were very friendly and catered to our every need. The room was very modern and very quiet and the food in the restaurant was of a high standard. Breakfast was a full buffet and had everything you could possibly want. One suggestion would be to provide a shuttle into Patong, perhaps twice daily, so guests would not have to worry about getting taxis outside. Apart from that, a perfect location and we will definitively stay here again when we return to Phuket.
"The Jewel of Karon"
07/29/14 Wayne M Highett, Australia
Just back from 14 Nights at Beyond Resort Karon which is part of the Kata group of Hotels.. For the past few years my wife & I have been staying at the Kata Beach Resort and Spa which we loved until now ...The Beyond resort in Karon is a credit to this company, I have nothing but good things to say about this boutique style hotel, the food was of a very high standard both breakfast and night dining...a Great location, very tastefully renovated, and most of all the Staff ...Nothing was a problem for any of them from the wonderful Reception Girls & Night desk Guys, "Dee" at the Pool Bar and "Nu" and the Pool boys who constantly kept everyone entertained and of course the wonderful Breakfast staff ..The hotel is "over 18 only" which makes it that little more relaxing ..if you are coming to Phuket, you would be crazy not to stay here..All rooms have a seaview. even the ones with pool access .. its just great ....We brought 2 friends with us this year and they too, loved it ..Thank you Beyond ....See you next July !!!
"Relaxing getaway with my husband"
07/27/14 Janet S Sydney, Australia
This resort was everything we hoped for. Renovated recently we had the best room with the perfect view on third floor. Every room on every level has a perfect view of the private beach. We woke up everyday to the sound of the waves. The rooms were very clean, and everything in it was new. Even the shower and toilets had a beach view. Now you can't get any better than that. There was free internet in the lobby and the Resturant area. This resort is 18 and over so it's perfect getaway for couples to relax in peace and quite. The staff were the loveliest people I have ever met. They were so helpful and kind all the time and it was so obvious that they are not just kind to get a tip. I would like to thank everyone at beyond resort for giving us the best experience ever.
"Location, Service and Value!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1"
07/25/14 Rolf S Launceston, Australia
Just home after 8 nights here and it was wonderful. From the excellent facilities, fantastic location great value and most importantly the wonderful friendly staff. Could not fault the resort in any way, if ever we come back to Phuket we would not hesitate to make Beyond Karon our base. The welcome platter , the friendly smiling face every time you leave or return and the personalised service from every staff member made it a memorable holiday. In fact I was somewhat embarrased that the duty manager thyat initially greeted us could greet our party of 4 by name everyu time but I could never remember hers!!!!
"Wonderful Resort in the Best Location"
07/23/14 Carol M Temuka, New Zealand
We just had 7 days here. Our first trip to Thailand and Beyond Karon was the ideal base to stay. 400 baht for a tuk tuk and u were in Patong in 10 mins (great markets & nightlife) or blobbing out at the resort lounging in the pool or on deck chairs watching activity on the beach & sea. All the staff were exceptional and front desk staff always acknowledged our comings & goings. The meals in the restaurant were fantastic and sooo cheap, much better value than the nearby restaurants and a lovely outlook. Great breakfasts with plenty of choice. Loved the quiet, kids free atmosphere and the fact you didn't have to cross a road to get to the beach. Room was spacious with a huge bed, lovely views from 2nd floor balcony. Quiet air con was a plus. Power went out often in rain but when u look at street wiring its a wonder it doesn't happen more often!
"Third visit to Beyond Resort Karon"
07/23/14 Kathy J Geelong, Australia
This was our third visit and was as good as the last two visits. Renovations were a nice upgrade. Kid free is a great idea and appreciated. Staff excellent as always. Front desk staff and concierge friendly and helpful as previous visits. Reception even organised a birthday cake for me, which was lovely. Pool staff always on hand to order food and drinks. Housekeeping staff excellent and always friendly and chatty, especially Jim (not sure if that's how it's spelt) Breakfast was always nice as was dinner and lunch. If I have one complaint, it would be the poolside massage. Not very good and didn't get an hour as paid for. Went outside for subsequent massages and beauty treatments. Great location. Will be back next year.
"Good location and view.. Service needs some looking into"
07/16/14 veritus perth australia
Just left after a 10 day stay. Nice big comfy room with a view to die for. Lots of power outages but that is just Phuket for you. Some staff, mostly cleaners and breakfast room very friendly but front staff barely bother to greet you or look up when you enter the hotel after a day out. Fab kid free idea. Breakfast same same but adequate. Just a tip for management, you have a lot of front desk staff just chatting away amongst themselves. Tourist desk girl was not terribly helpful for the tour we required. Pool great but no poolside drink or food service, you had to go to the bar yourself. Overall good but will find a different more upmarket hotel next time.
