Cheap Hotel near Beach

We spend most of the day on the beach - so looking for a basic clean hotel just to sleep in and have Breakfast. Would like to be close as possible to the beach been told Karon would be the right place for two 40ish ladies who after the beach just want a few drinks and some thai food. And a few shops to browse around.

Hi Boo

The Ruam Thep Inn located directly on the southern end of Karon beach next to the Karon Beach Resort sounds like what you are looking for. In high season the prices are around 1800 baht per day for a basic clean room en suite. The rooms are not fancy but very basic.

They also have a restaurant overlooking the sea offering good Thai food. Also there is some good shopping and other good restaurants all within walking distance.

The only problem is they do not have a website nor internet booking facilities. However you can telephone the owner Khun Mui at + 66 76 330281 - 2. If you can't contact them, feel welcome to PM me as I have a small shop on their premises.

If you don't mind plain and a tiny pool, there's always In on the Beach. No hotel in Karon is closer to the water than In on the Beach. Looked a little run down when I was there, but it gets gret reviews from people like you who don't need a 4 star hotel and it's facilities and just want a simple place to stay.

It's about a five minute walk along the beach to the start of the shops.

Another option is the Golden Sand Inn which is right across the road from the northern end of Karon beach and has a lovely pool and garden area. It is also in a great location for dining and local shopping as it is all within a minutes walk of the hotel.. This would be my choice for budget in Karon. Check out their website phuket-goldensand.com.

We have stayed at the Andaman Seaview and it is a beautiful hotel and a great location but is not a budget price hotel.

Another one you could look at is Phuket Island View which has an excellent location opposite the south end of Karon Beach (near Andaman Seaview) although not as dear as Andaman it would be dearer than Golden Sand Inn.

Have a look at the reviews on here before you choose.

Hope that helps.

Hi Boo,

We have booked the Woraburi Phuket Resort & Spa for our trip in Phuket in 3 weeks' time.

The place seems to fit what u may be looking for. Its a 4-star resort/hotel so def wudnt be that run-down where cleanliness is concerned. Its located somewhere in the middle section of Karon and its just right by the seaside. All you need to do to get to the beach is just to cross the small 2-lanes road thats all. They have a nice big pool in their compound too. Also to either side of the resort, there's shops and eateries around.

October is the low season and with the promo rate we get from Hotelclub.com (1 night free stay), our 4 nights stay there just costs us 1,345 bahts per night. Thats only abt 28 pounds/night.

If you wanna see how the actual surrounding of the hotel looks right, the moment u step out of it.......check out this website. It provides a 360 degrees view of the surrounding streets.


(The hotel is located abt 400-500m south of the main Karon round-about, alongside the main road. Just move the "little man" on the map along the road and you will be able to see how the hotel really looks like and its dist.fm the beach. Place yr cursor on the hotel pic and move it around to see what the cameraman sees - 360 degrees view ! Enjoy ! )
