“Fantastic beach front location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

This hotel is a real gem as there are only a few hotels in Karon Beach that are situated right on the beach with a sea view from every room! The rooms are very large, well appointed and tastefully furnished in a contemporary style. The food is of excellent quality as are the staff who are extremely helpful and friendly throughout the hotel. The sand on the beach is beautiful and powder soft and the sea is crystal clear. I would consider myself to be quite a discerning traveller and I could not fault this hotel at all. If you are looking for beach front holiday on top of local restaurants and shops, this hotel is ideal.

Room Tip: Go for a high room (there are only 3 floors) and you will get an excellent uninterrupted sea view.

Just home from Thailand, stayed at Beyond Resort Karon Beach. This resort really can't be faulted, beautiful big, clean and well serviced rooms. Every room has same beach frontage. Pool overlooking the ocean, beautiful gardens, quality restaurant and bar, and it was lovely having breakfast overlooking the ocean with a great choice of food for breakfast, all fresh. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Where this resort is in Karon Beach is a world away from the seedy side of Thailand. Perfect for families and couples. Felt really safe and not harassed at all. Lots of quality restaurants on the doorstep. Loved this resort

Room Tip: Every room is a good choice. There are three levels to this resort and every room has a sea view. No...

GENERALLY

Great size hotel - only 70-ish rooms. Good decision to convert from families to couples only classification. Small enough to easily navigate around and feel at home yet big enough to feel like you are in a bigger 5 star complex. Good refurb - excellent standard of fixtures and fittings. Fantastic showers with two showers heads - one fixed and one detachable hose fitting - great for rinsing off sandy/dusty feet after a day spent in flip flops wandering around dusty markets! Great location on borders of Karon and Kata. 20 mins away from Patong in a Tuk Tuk if you feel like a walk on the wild side! Lots of choice of restaurants in the vicinity too and a great, crazy cheap fruit stall opposite the main entrance

POSITIVES

Staff were super polite and respectful - I have never been 'wai'd' (bowed to) so much in any other hotel in Thailand! Very helpful too - any advice about the local area was always given thoroughly and immediately. One evening we bought a bottle of wine to drink on our balcony and realised we had no bottle opener. On asking reception if housekeeping could supply us with this we were told sadly not, but they swiftly offered to run out and buy one from the local shop. They returned within 5 mins, bottle opener in hand. We could have easily done this ourselves as the shop is literally next door to the hotel but such is the willingness of the hotel staff to help they would not hear of it and insisted they went out to get it for us. No expectation of a tip for doing so either but we did anyway.
Housekeeping is tip-top. Daily changes of bedding and towels, beach towels changed every few days (we stayed 14 nts). special mention to Chim (apologies for bad spelling!) who was very funny and always made sure our room was serviced even though we are notorious late-risers who rarely get up in time for breakfast (hey, we're on holiday right?! :o))
Proximity to beach is second to none, you could virtually jump over the dividing wall between beach and hotel and land on a sun lounger. Beach was exceptionally clean and another special mention to the beach boys who operate the sun loungers (although not affiliated with the hotel) We chose to lie on the beach 12 days out of 14 as the pool area was too busy and inevitably had towels over 95% of pool loungers by 8am. Our personal choice is always the beach as we feel lying by the pool, you could be anywhere.
Breakfast was great (on the rare occasions we were awake in time), good selection, good coffee and an egg station. I can heartily recommend the omelettes.
The hotel manager was always visible and indeed came round one morning to advise guests that the hotel had arranged for trees that slightly obscured the view of the beach from the breakfast room to be cut back to improve the vista for diners. Top marks for attention to detail.

NEGATIVES

Very difficult to think of anything negative to say about the hotel in all honesty. For the sake of having something to write in this section (and I'm being picky here) there was a damp smell in our room and hallways when we first checked in - kind of like wet vegetation mixed with pool cleaner (not surprising really as the hotel backs onto woodland and all rooms overlook the pool) I did mention this to reception at check-in and asked if we could change rooms? Sensibly, the receptionist suggested we might want to try waiting until morning (it was about midnight when we arrived) and if we still felt the same he would do his best to change our room. We did as he suggested and to be fair, the odour had gone by the next day. I suspect the room may have been unoccupied for a while and this was the 'unused' smell we experienced. A trip to the 7/11 provided us with a cheap oil burner which we rarely used as the room was aired every day and the staff placed oil burners all round the hotel public areas in any case. There was also an unusual smell from the drain in the bathroom on the odd occasion but this is not anything out of the ordinary in the other hotels I have been to in this part of Thailand.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel and would look to re-book here should we visit Phuket again.

We were two couples living on the hotel for the last two weeks of january, 2014. From our arrival a very good impression was made. It is splendidly located seaside and with walking distanse to shops and restaurants. The premisses is big enough to maintain a high professional standard, but small enough not to be a ”touristmachine”. Overall it was clean, with a well functioning ventilation. The staff was proffesional, polite and accommodating, without being clingy. The breakfast was varied and delicate, none of us were bored with the food during the stay.

We preferred the beach to the poolarea and could walkstraight out from the hotel to the beach. We very much enjoyed snorkling.

The hotels own restaurant was among the better we tried in Karon, after a while we choose to have more of our meals here. The neighbouring restaurant ”On the rock” is also well worth a visit. We would like to give our highest recommendations.
Cheers from Norway.

My wife and I stayed here over the New Year period and loved the place so much we're coming back in April. The views from the rooms are second to none. The rooms were always beautifully presented by the very friendly house keeping staff. The buffet breakfast was always something to look forward to each before a very relaxing day by the pool and the odd bit of shopping or massage. The swim up pool bar was just perfect, excellent views, great service, fantastic food and most importantly, cold drinks.
The resorts location is definitely the best available in Karon, perfectly positioned right on the beach. Unlike other resorts in the area, where you have to cross the road to get to the beach and take all your belongings for the day???
It is too hard to fault the resort as the pool is great, the rooms are great and most importantly the staff are brilliant so you can't help but want to come back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle of the property are best for stair access.

Visited the hotel at the end of january beginning of february 2014. A perfect hotel for those of you who want to relax in a quiet environment.
Newly restored room with a good quality and exellent service. There is also a beatiful beach only a few steps from the pool area with sunbeds and umbrellas.
WiFi available at a reasonable price.
Good quality food in the restaurant with buffet 3 days a week.
If you search for tranqylity and peace it highly recommeded to visit this hotel.
Quit place in the night as well with little noise from the street.
