The Centara Grand is a relatively new 5 star resort, Horizon Karon is 3.5-4 star.

I would say that Horizon would be better located out of the two so far as proximity to other restaurants ect but that said, The Centara Grand is around a 15 min walk to the restaurants and shops or a 2 min tuk tuk ride.

Centra Grand is by far the the nicer of the two hotels. It is a bit further to walk of the two, but then again we don't mind a 15/20 minute easy stroll.

Thank You for your advise fresh_prince & Fivestar. Just another question the walk from centra grand to the rest. ect is the walk on the road or is there a "phuket" type of footpath. And is it a safe walk ie from other tuk tuk cars and motor bikes.
