Absolutely brilliant place. From the friendly, professional staff, to the stunning bungalow, the restaurants, the pool, the gardens everything is outstanding. We had a great 2 days, would have loved to stay longer if time had permitted.

We have just returned home after the most amazing holiday at Marina Phuket.The accommodation is very spacious and bathrooms are well appointed and fresh towels are supplied daily.The high standard of the property is obvious even after the last years of covid lockdown and no business.The pool area is simply magical with plenty of sun beds and towels with a great pool bar and great staff.The food is very good both at the restaurant at Red Chopsticks and On the Rocks with it’s stunning view of the sea.The hotel is perfectly located in Karon with your own private beach access and easy walking distance to the main road to Karon and Kata.The attentiveness of the staff is fantastic and they are always there to help in any way.Suthima and her staff are an absolute compliment to the owner of this great property.We will be back like a lot of returning guests that have been going to Marina Phuket for years.

Absolutely amazing place to stay. We booked through Kuoni holiday group and were given the absolute best service from the minute we came out of the airport up until we left phuket. Our kuoni rep from the hotel - apple - was superb, she assisted in booking excursions to various different places such as Thai cooking class Phuket. The hotel is so clean, huge attention is paid to detail and there is no limit to what they can do for you! We stayed here for a honeymoon week and had ocean views from our room. Would 100% recommend.

Absolutely amazing resort with fabulous location. One step (private entry) to Karon beach. Beautiful bungalow in jungle, perfect food in restaurant On the rocks with stunning sea view. The best stuff ever! Especially want to thank manager of reservation department miss Suthima Rosamai. She helped at every step from reservation to getting Thai Pass confirmation. Amazing person! Hope to return to this wonderful place!

We have just returned from the Marina Phuket Resort, Thailand and have had a fantastic holiday. We loved the villas hidden by the flora giving customers privacy. Staff were very attentive and always smiling - nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the Salathai Restaurant for breakfast/evening meal which had lots of choice. On Valentine's Day we enjoyed a fabulous a-la-carte meal at the 'On the Rocks' Restaurant with a wonderful romantic setting overlooking Karon Beach. Staff knew who we were which gave a personal touch. The resort was well positioned for shops/bars. All in all we would recommend this resort to anyone wishing to stay in this area.

We enjoyed our stay at the Marina Resort. We stayed in a Grand Villa, and at $625/nt USD, it was definitely on the expensive side. All the rooms are in villas, so you are afforded much more privacy than a "typical" hotel in which you share walls with neighbors. The Grand Villas are buildings on to themselves, while the other villas appear to share one common wall. Nevertheless, the way they are laid out, you could stay a week and not see your neighbor. The included breakfast buffet was good - never made it to the buffet dinner. The pool was very nice, especially if you got a lounger by the waterfall - very peaceful. I didn't like the fact that people reserved loungers by 7:30am and didn't show up until 10:30-11:00, but after the second day we did the same and everyone seemed to stick to their "spot". I HIGHLY recommend the massages by the pool. I didn't think I would like a massage outside in the hot and sticky environment, but it was one of the best I've had anyway (and cheap). The pool has a nice bar, but you need to go to the bar to get a drink - i.e., they don't come around taking orders. We typically stay at luxury resorts, so that is our basis of comparison. The service here was friendly, but not 5* level. My biggest criticism is the number of mosquitoes in our room. The first night we killed 17! Subsequent nights it was considerably less, but we always had "buzzy company" which made for an unrestful sleep. I believe the biggest problem is that when they clean the rooms they leave the doors open. I understand why they do this, and in a typical hotel setting (with closed interior hallways) this makes sense so employees are not accused of stealing. However, given the nature of these villas (jungle setting), I really think they need to close the doors while cleaning and/or use some type of repellent. It seems like a minor issue until you are the one up all night swatting at mosquitos. Everything considered, I would stay here again, but I hope they address the mosquitos in the rooms.

We had such an amazing time at Marina Phuket Resort and can't wait to return! The service was impeccable from our airport pickup by the hotel, to help getting taxis to go sightseeing, to the pool bar and meal service. We only knew a few Thai phrases but the hotel staff's English skills made it easier on us - we were very appreciative!! The room was big with really nice touches and a very cold AC :) The pool is large and we'll kept with enough space around that it never felt busy. People did reserve chairs so we did the same, but it seemed like you could usually find a spot pretty easily. And the garden is spectacular! I loved hearing all the unique bird calls and seeing all the native plants. The breakfast and dinner buffets were lovely. While drinks are not included the prices were reasonable. The meals were diverse and had something for everyone, I don't think we saw the same dish twice during our week long stay. The location is superb! Beach access and an easy walk to other bars, shops and restaurants. We stay in a lot of hotels across the US and internationally and this is one of our favorites. I can't stress enough how fantastic this place was and that you definitely should stay here!!

We have just returned from staying at the Marina over this Christmas period - and had a lovely stay. We split our stay with a short trip up to Khao Sok national park, so were able to stay first in the Jungle rooms for a couple of nights (they stored our bags for us for the duration of our additional trip) - then the ocean view rooms on our return. I have to say both rooms exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was extensive for choice - and while we visited there was also complimentary Thai buffet available for evening meals (although we never managed to take advantage of this during our stay - preferring to try the many local restaurants). We did however eat at the Rock restaurant on three occasions (including a Christmas Eve set menu meal) - and loved the setting, food provided - and at a reasonable cost. The staff were all very attentive and went out of their way to help. Location is great, middle of both Karon and Kata beaches - so you can go either way when you walk out from the hotel - although the best part of Karon is a short Tuk Tuk ride away... The reason for 4 stars not 5 - simply because there was no hotel bar onsite (pool bar - but this shuts at the same time as the pool, 7pm). Although there are plenty of restaurants locally (and lots of 'Girl' bars if that's your thing), there was not really anywhere nice to just sit and have a quiet drink. A hotel bar would really have made this trip perfect....
