centara karon resort

Hi we are staying at the above hotel in August, I have asked about the rooms previously and am wondering if there is anyone who has stayed recently here in the terraces. It seems all the reviews are about the other rooms and I am a bit concerned. I e-mailed hays and jervis who we booked with and asked for details about upgrading but they told me there was no availability for this at that time so we are stuck now with the room. Also is the a minimum you can purchase for the bart bonanza, we are interested in doing it but only want to purchase a low amount??

We are here in August too. We have stayed in the terraces rooms, they are fine as we didn't spend much time in our room. However, this year we are returning and decided to upgrade to one of the cabanas as you get your own plunge pool and there wasn't too much difference in the price. I am sure if you email the hotel directly they can quote you how much an upgrade to one of the other rooms would be if Hayes and Javis can't offer an upgrade. Last year we took advantage of the baht bonanza - I can't remember what the minimum spend was £150? i must admit we ate out most evenings and didn't really eat much in the day, so not sure if I would use this again as towards the end of our stay we were ordering food and drink for the sake of it. Hope this helps

Dear poppopWales,

re Upgrade, when you arrive at the hotel, subject to availability, you are welcome to upgrade your room if a another type suits you better.

The minimum purchase for baht Bonanza is 10,000 thb and you get another, 5000 thb free.

The Terrace rooms are quite nice inside and some even come with interesting views over rooftops to the ocean. Their drawback is that they are in a concrete tower, and being on a tropical isle, the thought of being surrounded by concrete instead of trees is unappealing to some. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing wrong with staying in the Terraces. It truly does not take long to get over the concrete-y feeling. If I hadn't mentioned it, maybe you would not have even noticed.

It's not all bad. Like i said, the interior of the rooms is nice and modern, and (I'm presuming you have no kids) the pool setup on your doorstep is a more adult pool (complete with pool bar), and there's not usually kids there. You can always walk to the other pools, though the main "adult" pool, the Tropicale pool, is furthest.

I concur with the other poster; go cabana if you can. Especially if you like your own little area to lounge around in.

Yes it does thanks, I don't think we will bother with the bart as we will be eating out every evening cos as you say we may have money left and spend for the sake of it. See you in August.

Thanks Jacky
