My husband and I stayed at the Karon Whale Resort after seeking a quieter beach experience than Patong offered. The hotel is nice, a little dated, but completely adequate. The open air lobby has some funny hanging whale sculptures that look like they came from a 1960's aquarium. The whale-shaped pool is a nice alternative to the beach which is... More
