This is our second visit to the Marina. Our initial stay was during their renovations about 2 years ago and we were treated like royalty. Our second visit we decided to share this sanctuary with 10 of our friends. This time we were met with many disappointments. Firsty, there was no acknowledgment that my partner and I had already stayed... More

The Marina Phuket is the most beautiful resort we have stayed. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms which was perfect. The resort is attended to frequently by gardeners and it shows.

This place is just AMAZING!!! We stayed in a jungle room for 3 nights and it was just magical. The pool is just beautiful with little spots that you can sit and relax hidden from the view of other guests. The rooms are huge and beautiful with a freestanding bath although not much privacy for the bedroom and bathroom with... More

On our many trips to Phuket , we have never stayed in Karon, so on our way back from Koh Lanta decided to try it for 4 nights. I chose the Marina because of its walking distance location from both Karon and Kata beaches, giving us a choice of restaurants, bars and beaches. The hotel gave us all of that,... More

Absolutely wonderful and gorgeous! Wonderful greeting upon arrival and smiling helpful staff during our stay. Pristine and lush well-kept garden pathways and wooden bridges connecting it all. Rooms were immaculate and welcoming. Pool is amazing. Unfortunately the place is surrounded by street hustlers and desperation. The beach is amazing even if not quite at the resort but attached to it.... More
