Why We Love This Hotel

We love the Karon Beach Resort for boasting one of the largest green spaces in Phuket, featuring lush orchid gardens and having a Green Globe Certification. The recognition highlights the Karon Beach Phuket Resort’s strong commitment to the principles of environmental protection and reflects the company’s determination to implement sustainable practices. An ideal hotel, if you’re searching for luxurious travel accommodation, that supports an eco-friendly lifestyle.


Amid the lush tropical gardens and just steps away from the pristine sands of Karon Beach, the resort offers the best location in Phuket, close to major attractions, local shops, vibrant markets and historic temples. Patong, a beach resort town is only 15 minutes away by taxi or tuk-tuk and offers a wide variety of entertainment and dining options.

Best Time To Visit

With a tropical climate, the weather in Phuket never gets too cold. The highest tourist season is November to February when the temperature varies from around 23°C and 30°C. In Phuket, December is the coolest month, but February tends to be the driest. March to mid-May are considered the hottest months, just before monsoon, and temperatures vary in the mid-thirties. You’ll find the heaviest rainfall from mid-May to October, as this is monsoon season, humidity can be overbearing but prices are low due to a lack of tourists.

Imagine waking up to the birds singing, sunlight stretching through the window of your room, a safari of thriving greenery outside, and ponds filled with fresh water lilies.
