"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
"Beautiful resort, great location and friendly staf"
A beautiful resort located right on the beach (who doesn't like to go to sleep with the sound of waves crashing!!) very friendly staff and neat and tidy hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Lovely pool area. Good food i. Restaurant and cafe. Lovely breakfast. Spa was ask good with offers for guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel by the beach yet close to town"
We had 2 nights in Beyond Resort and were happy to choose this place to spend our long weekend relaxing. This is not a luxurious 5 star hotel (I don't even rate it as a 4 star) but it is still a nice hotel if you manage your expectation well. This is a place to relax by the beach, spending time in your balcony accompanied by sound of waves, strolling […] in small Karon town/beach.. The hotel is clean, the facilities although basic are more than decent, the food was OK - nothing to brag about. In short, if you are looking for luxury by international standard, this is not the place. But this is a nice and pleasant place to unwind and relax.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Resort for a nice quiet holiday"
As reviewed, location is good. Next to karon beach, convenience store and good restaurants. The hotel food isnt that bad either. Good breakfast too, though it gets a bit repetitive over 5 days. The hotel staff always greet guests with a smile. Wifi costs 400 baht for 3 days. The room's view was great. We were greeted with a cold towel, drinks and fruits, […] which i thought was a very nice gesture. The hotel also has a desk that helps to arrange for tours and transport, which was really helpful.

"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

"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
We had a good time at Beyond. When we arrived, the reseptionist upgraded the room to a suite as there was no standard rooms available in second floor. Large and clean room with nice view. Good breakfast. The beach restaurant was only ok, the food didn't match the high price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ruhig und schöne Lage am Ende des Karon Beach"
topGenuine Hotels.com guest review
カロンでビーチに直結する数少ないホテル。全室シービューだから、シービューを望むなら、安心して予約出来る。隣りがコンビニ、向かいがレンタルバイク屋で便利。ロケーションだけは良い。気に入らないところを挙げると、プールがすごく小さい、ホテルのレストランがタイ料理しかない、プールのタオルを部屋から持って行って、部屋に持って帰らないといけない。プールにそのまま置いて来ちゃうと翌日、補充してもらえない。部屋は狭く2人用。バスタブ無し。WIFIはロビー以外は有料。空港へのタクシーが1900バーツと高い。スタッフの愛想が良くない。Genuine Expedia guest review
海景，房间新，现代。餐厅海景，海鲜大餐超棒。步行了整个karon beach.这酒店是离海滩最近的之一了。总之，值得下次再来Genuine Hotels.com 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.

カロンビーチで唯一と言って良いビーチ直結のホテルでロケーション抜群でした。また行きたいですね。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
カロンビーチでホテルの部屋から直ぐ海が見えるのはこのホテルだけであり、これがホテルの評価を引き上げている。ホテルはコンパクトであり、大型のホテルより私は好きです。 ホテルの周りは、レストラン、お土産、コンビニ等があり、ホテルの外で食事、買い物が出来るのが良い。Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel in outstanding location"
We stayed for a week in early January on our way back home from Europe, and really enjoyed Beyond. It's a smaller resort than some, with about 80 rooms. The location is what really makes it special, as several of the reviews point out. You can walk from the pool area right on to the southern end of Karon Beach, which is stunning. These days no rental deck chairs or umbrellas are allowed on the beach, so being at a hotel right on the beach is a big plus. Out front you have the all the street life of the restaurants and shops of the Kata beach area, only a few hundred meters away, the main centre of Karon is more like a kilometre or two away. Our room was just like the pictures on their website, very comfortable, and nicely decorated, a couple of years ago I would say. Very comfortable bed. I am not sure what the official "star" rating is, but I would say it was 3+, rather than 4, just because of a few "economies", such as a reasonably limited breakfast buffet (although the eggs cook was outstanding), very basic toiletries in the room, beach towels in the room, but no exchange by the pool etc. But those are only minor points. The staff were generally very cheerful and helpful and the resort is well set out. We had one dinner at the hotel restaurant but were a bit underwhelmed. Despite the beautiful location, the food was rather average. So for a special meal we went to On the Rock which is only a short walk along the beach (50 metres) and up the stairs. That was really stunning. But there are so many restaurants at all levels a short walk away. We would definitely stay at Beyond again.
"Wonderful time at Beyond Resort Karon"
01/15/15 V_Kera Oulu, Finland
We stayed at the hotel for two weeks during Christmas and New Year's. The hotel was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful in every situation. The hotel area was nice, great views on the beach. The location was perfect in the southern nook of the beach; much more quiet than elsewhere on the beach and there was an excellent place for snorkeling right in the front of the hotel. There were also a lot of restaurants and shops near towards the Kata beach. The food in the hotel breakfast and restaurant was very good, we ate there on most days. Free WiFi in the lobby worked very well, not so much at the pool side though. Really nothing bad to say about the hotel, would definitely recommend!
"Beyond Karen Beach Resort is next to a public beach."
01/14/15 CGie20 Perth, Australia
Yes I am tardy in writing this but I hope it helps. It was In March that we stayed 10 days at the resort. I think it somewhat too long as, we suffered a Pukhet belly. The resort is next to a beach which is a public beach. It is in the southern most corner of Karen beach and is quite quiet. The Resort has limited grounds and it is mostly concrete surrounding the pool and a small patch by the restaurants and thus it is hot. Breakfast is good. Lunch menu OK, but the evening outdoor seafood evening, is a “ no, no.” The food was of poor quality and prawns and fish minute, other dishes were not up to standard either. It is a great shame. Go out and you’d find enormous prawns and good selection of fish. We found the rooms good and comfortable and the view across the bay was terrific. The staff were friendly. WiFi was poor. The hotel could not supply writing paper and envelopes . I guess that they are a tightly run ship? The front of the Hotel is on the main street where the restaurants are. They hotel will suit guests who like a destination without the noisy Girly bars of Patong, which we visited once and found disappointing and annoying. Ok. How to get there from the airport. Go straight out of the airport , turn right and proceed straight on till you hit a Taxi kiosk. Here they will issue you a ticket to Karen beach Resort. Being at the southern end expect 900 Bhkt. Much cheaper than from within the airport. This info was from a review of a fellow traveler. Return to the airport? Go to the small travel stall, diagonally opposite the hotel and she will book you a terrific fare, much less than the hotel. Also avoid the Taxi stand further down the road with a big board on the wall where the stated fare is much higher. It was a pity that I did not find her earlier for it would have saved us a lot of anguish.

We stayed at Beyond Resort 2 weeks. And we must say that Beyond Resort is a fantastic hotel! Located on the very best part of Karon Beach. You actually walk directly from the hotel into the sea! The morning buffet and the beach cafe is very good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We strongly recommend this hotel!
"I recommend Beyond Resort Karon with all my heart"
01/11/15 Håkan B Horred, Västra Götaland County, Sweden
Amazing hotel with friendly and talented staff and close to the beach. 200 M. Hotelet is clean and fresh, good breakfast, good new brewed coffee and close to Everything. The hotel also has a desk that helps to arrange for tours and transport, which was really helpful.
"Amazing beach view!"
Worth the stay! Our room was on the highest floor (3rd) and the balcony view was ammmmaaazing! Request for the most extreme left view where u can see the full view of Karon Beach. Comfy room, friendly staff and decent breakfast. A must for couples
"Christmas and New Year"
01/03/15 Ian M Greater Melbourne, Australia
A fantastic time to stay at this resort. The hotel put on a terrific buffet on both Christmas and New Years Eve together with a fun party atmosphere at New year the best firework display on the beach. Our only regret was we had to leave. A bit of a competition to get the prime spot sun beds overlooking the beach, they seem to be reserved at first light and often not used till mid morning. We had a second floor room which was very clean and well appointed. A suggestion would be installation of screen sliding doors and ceiling fans, nothing nicer than using the ideal location to lay in bed at night listening to the waves on the beach. This could Alison help reduce power consumption. The staff at the pool bar were great always ready with a smile and friendly comment. Breakfasts were really good with plenty of great coffee and eggs any way you wanted. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to visit again.

This was a great hotel right on the beach which is hard to find in Phuket. It's in a great area with many shops and restaurants. The staff attended to all our needs and were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet had lots of choices and the view looking out over the water was beautiful. Good pools and common areas. We enjoyed our stay!
"Nice hotel, great staff"
12/30/14 morley2013 west sussex
As with the general thai population this hotel has very friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble for them. The hotel position is right on the beach unlike the other hotels in karon and is nicely situated for a walk to the shops in either direction. Rooms are modern and clean. Breakfasts are great with a nice selection to choose from, food and drink is cheaper out of the resort as you would expect though. Overall very satisfied with our stay at beyond and would recommend.
"Right on the beach!"
Great experience! Very clean, staff very respectful, food is great. The only negative is the mosquitoes. If you get a ground level room, you have to keep your sliding glass doors that go outside to the pool closed at all times or you'll get hundreds of mozzies in your room within seconds. But overall, awesome place!
