Village-like in its design, and a stroll from Karon Beach, this resort divides into four distinct zones. The Terraces offer terraced rooms, some with ocean vistas and a Jacuzzi, The Lagoon’s rooms offer more space, extra bedding and a balcony, the luxurious Tropicale zone rewards with club lounge benefits and the Cabanas offer seclusion, a terrace and Jacuzzi pool. Lounge by the three pools, have a hit of tennis, or enjoy work out in the gym, and unwind in the day spa before savouring the culinary delights of the six restaurants and bars.

Attractions near the Centara Karon Resort
Something for all the family
The hotel is great for families, thanks to its location in one of the quieter parts of Phuket and a kids’ club for the little ones, which plans events throughout the week. While the kids are off enjoying themselves, parents can relax in the lap of luxury at Spa Cenvaree or work up a sweat in the onsite sports centre where there are two tennis courts, snooker tables and darts available.
Come evenings, head to either the Azure restaurant, which serves up a tasty traditional Italian menu, or savour local delights at Lotus, the hotel’s Thai restaurant. Guests can sign up for a Thai cooking class on Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
Local crafts at Karon Market
It’s not often that you get to do your shopping in a temple. At Karon Beach, the popular local market is set within the grounds of Wat Suwan Khiri Khet, a local Thai Buddhist temple. Every Tuesday and Saturday evening, Karon’s temple turns into a lively meeting place for local residents selling a huge array of goods and produce, along with a generous helping of souvenirs.
Sarongs, T-shirts emblazoned with the latest icons and inexpensive jewellery are some of the usual products for sale, but locally made handicrafts are also available and make fantastic keepsakes.
