After a poor experience at the Metadee in Kata, myself and my wife checked out and travelled to the Karona Resort and Spa where I had lasted stayed in 2006. I had really enjoyed my last stay back then, so after our poor experience at the Metadee it seemed a logical choice. Staying in the down season, I believe we were the only guests at the hotel during the week we stayed, the first time I had ever experienced that! All week we had the restaurant and pool to ourselves which was amazing. One night in the restaurant we even had that too ourselves too with live music! Amazing.
The rooms look a tiny bit dated, but still very nice and clean. The air conditioning is effective with an additional ceiling fan. The beds comfortable with a nice balcony over looking the pool and sea.
The hotel itself is in the centre of Karon beach close to restaurants, shops and bars. The nearest landmark is the dino-park which all of the taxi drivers know.
The service we received at the Karona Resort and Spa was great and our second visit was just as good as my first. I would highly recommend the Karona Resort and Spa to other travellers visiting Phuket.
