We booked our room through a friend of a friend, a local travel agent in Thailand. As such we got the hotel for a good rate.
Honestly, this is a great hotel. Our room was incredibly stylish, clean and bright. The finish was lovely. Silk sashes on the bed, a fantastic bathroom. Good aircon (very necessary!).
The staff at the hotel were lovely, we enjoyed dining on-site in the hotel restaurant and at the pool-side bar. The pool itself is beautiful, with two-tiers and cute little stone statues all around.
The pool is close to shops, the beach and restaurants - I recommend 'On the Rocks' you will need to book, but it's a real treat. Just a few minutes from the hotel.
The spa seemed quite pricey. If you want a massage or any pampering, look to one of the spas outside of the hotel. They offer better value for money.
I highly recommend the Karona Resort and Spa. Book, you will not regret it.
