We have just returned from a 12 night stay in a two bedroom cabana at Centara Karon Resort. The resort grounds are beautiful with a very relaxed tropical feel about it and all of the hammocks dotted around the resort for guests to relax in just adds to that. Once you enter the grounds its hard to believe that you...

We have just returned from our Thailand Adventure including an unforgettable stay at Centara Karon! Our room backed onto the Lagoon Pool, which is the kid’s pool with waterslides so our 4 y.o. son Harry was very happy with that! We enjoyed watching him rocket down those slides many...many times and even went down ourselves a couple of times ;-)....

We had high expectations of this hotel for a short break in Phuket from Singapore as a family of five. Sharing a room was perfectly suitable - two doubles, one infant cot, and one extra bed. We had plenty of space. The negatives: 1. Service was severely lacking / poor, and no where near the levels you would normally expect...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Karon Town, with an abundance of eateries and entertainment options at its doorstep and Karon Beach a short stroll away, the resort is perfectly located to experience the many facets of Phuket. As a destination in its own right, Centara Karon Resort Phuket fulfils every holiday aspiration, from pure bliss at Spa Cenvaree to active holidays and family fun with activities galore, yoga sessions, three swimming pools, waterslides and a kids’ club. This four-star resort, laid out within beautiful gardens backed by green hills, is comprised of four very distinctive residential zones. Couples and small families will find the rooms and Honeymoon Suites at the Terraces a comfortable retreat, and enjoy the option of ocean view or a private outdoor Jacuzzi; while families and groups of friends are spoilt for choice with spacious guestrooms set moments away from the waterslide and games of the Lagoon pool. The generously-sized one- and two-bedroom Cabanas feature a private terrace with a plunge Jacuzzi. As a fun place for families, the resort has a kids’ club with daily activities and three expansive swimming pool areas complete with three children’s pools for the younger ones to splash in, two waterslides and pool games. Pool parties are held regularly, and other activities include tennis and football.
