Old Phuket Karon Beach Resort

Karon Beach is far less busy and developed than nearby Patong. There's only a few miles between them, but follow the winding road from Patong and you find that Karon is clean, neat and rather nice. Some would say dull, but you can't please everyone! Recent improvements to the beachfront include nice pavements, statues, and plenty of benches to stop for a rest in the shade.

The Old Phuket Hotel is on a quiet side road called Aroona Karon which is now closed to through traffic making it very pleasant. You're just a few minutes walk from the beach, but away from any crowds. The hotel also has something approaching style - not just another resort, it's built in the old Sino-Portuguese style which you can see remnants of in Phuket Town. Rooms and furniture match the old style, well..nearly... I guess they did not have satellite TV's in the old days! Or jacuzzis for that matter. The Private Jacuzzi room looks just great.

There are 2 restaurants, 2 bars, pool, sauna, fitness center..you know, all the usual stuff, but with style :) The views from the pool are great with the hills rising to the east of Karon beach it feels like a little oasis. The main Karon centre is about 15 minutes walk to the north, the other end of Karon about 20 minutes to the south. I think it's one of the nicest places in Karon Beach.
