Phuket Airport to Centara Karon Resort

What is the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? We are a family of 4 adults with 4 suitcases.

Will a taxi take us 4 all in 1 car? and how much will it roughly cost?

Book a transfer thru travel agent, they'll take you in mini bus with all your luggage & because you are a family of 4 you won't be sharing the van with anyone else who could be getting dropped at any hotel along the way. Takes about an hour from airport to karon

I would book the transfers directly through phuketshuttle.com and have the driver waiting for you as you exit the arrivals hall. No negotiating, no stress and you'll bypass the crowds. No need to involve a travel agent who will only add on a premium for organising the transfer. There are also other regularly recommended drivers that have been tried and tested by TA members that you could contact.

You won't all fit in one taxi, so I agree with fresh_prince: phuketshuttle is a good service. Check with your hotel if they offer airport transfers and take whichever is cheaper.

Phuket shuttle is what ? 1200 baht for a van ? Any of the recommended drivers on TA will do the same trip for 800 baht. And some even give a slight discount for the return trip.

800 baht saved for the return journey will buy you a nice dinner in Phuket !
