Inexpensive and fabulously placed opposite Karon Beach and its lagoon stands this hillside resort, a 15-minute drive from Patong’s buzzing nightlife. Spacious and air-conditioned, the guest rooms offer private balconies with magnificent views of the Andaman Sea or of the resort’s verdant tropical gardens. Guests can take pleasure in the traditional Thai or international cuisine at the Ocean View Restaurant, and delight in the three outdoor swimming pools with vistas of the beach lagoon, plus the herbal steam room, games room and gym.
Why we recommend the Best Western Ocean Resort

Attractions near the Best Western Ocean Resort
Get under the Surface of Karon
Touted as one of the more upscale beaches in Phuket, the northern end of Karon Beach is uncrowded, clean and quiet; perfect for when you want to get away from it all. The white sand is renowned for being squeaky, and the sea is inviting and clear.
Divers can visit a few sites just off shore, which attract many tropical fish. In recent times, artificial reefs have been introduced into the area and an education program about marine life has been created, so aquatic animals are becoming more varied year after year as the reefs start growing naturally.
Dino Park and Restaurant
There are few children (and adults) who don’t like dinosaurs or the idea of living with dinosaurs. The proprietors of Dino Park are well aware of this common fascination with creatures that can only be read about or seen on television, so they’ve provided a fun way to become immersed amongst dinosaurs.
Dino Park is a fun minigolf course and restaurant located between Karon Beach and Kata Beach. The 18-hole course takes you back to the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth, boasting active volcanoes, prehistoric caves and life-sized dinosaur statues that you have to manoeuvre the golf ball around.
