This hotel is just purely amazing. Let me just say if you’re trying to decide on a place to stay, CHOOSE this hotel! Let me start off with the positives. Firstly, the views are absolutely amazing, I don’t have much to go off, but I’d say probably the best views in Karon! The hotel is perched up on the Karon... More

I really can't say one bad thing about this place, it's perfect. It's a five minute walk to the main road, yet it's quiet and calm. It's a beautiful place with perfect rooms, clean and bright, with good AC, shower and tub, great beds in wich I slept like a baby. Never tried the restaurant food, but the breakfast buffet... More

We stayed at the Phunaka for 8 nights on our anniversary/birthday holiday for 2. We could not have asked for a better resort!

The best part is the views from the rooms and pool area. Staff were accomodating and helpful. However they have strange rules and stiff prices at the poolside bar. The request for a voucher at check in is ridiculous and unnecessary. Surely all that is required is for staff to check their own register! On the positive side, you get... More

We had been travelling Thailand since the beginning of the year staying in various lovely 3 star hotels but thought we would 'upgrade' to the Funaka for a weekend expecting a cool and stylish place!

We stayed here for two weeks in the Deluxe Room with a Jacuzzi. The room was very nice and very clean, but the Jacuzzi was filthy when we arrived and was not cleaned while we were there, I regret paying extra for the Jacuzzi. The spa was quite nice but had not been cleaned but was an overall good experience.... More

All up this was a wonderful place to start our Thailand trip. The facilities were great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that the room we booked was not available when we arrived and we were "upgraded" to a family room which was nice but there was no point in the extra space and bed... More

The individual villa-style buildings of the Karon Phunaka resort and spa are set amidst a lush forest and scattered down Naka Mountain in true tiered wedding-cake style. From every almost every point in the resort, you'll have sea views to die for, floor-to-ceiling windows in your Deluxe bedroom that bathe the room in natural sunlight and a balcony with your own private Jacuzzi tub. ... more   less
