Why Did We Pick This Hotel:

Nestled into a quiet corner at the southern end of Karon Beach, Beyond Resort Karon has 81 rooms which all have views out across the Andaman Sea. Relatively private and isolated while still being relatively close to restaurants and nightlife of Kata and Karon, it offers peace, quiet, and privacy on the famed beach. In addition, an adults-only policy of excluding guests under 17 means that it has a calm and exclusive feel.

Designed in contemporary Thai-style and offering excellent Thai hospitality, the hotel has two outdoor swimming pools right by the beach, three restaurants and spa services, including a steam room – everything you need for a relaxing stay. The rooms are simply decorated and comfortable, with free Wi-Fi, private balcony, flat-screen TV and other modern conveniences.

What We Loved:

  • Outstanding location - one of very few hotels right on the beach
  • Swim-up pool bar
  • Child-free policy for a more peaceful and romantic stay

Mid Range Hotels in Karon Beach

For people want a full set of facilities but don’t expect perfection at every turn, these mid-range hotels are for you. Sure, you get a nice pool, room service, concierge, but the price is kept lower in different ways – for example, reduced selections at breakfast or slightly smaller guestrooms. The competition in Phuket is so fierce that prices get reduced on five-star hotels pushing them into mid-range territory. But make no mistake, these are excellent hotels!
