Karon Beach Resort has just undergone a refurbishment and has been renamed to Beyond Resort Karon.
Please note: With the change this resort is now an ADULTS ONLY RESORT.
We had the pleasure of viewing one of the renovated rooms and I must say they look wonderful.
The renamed and revamped Beyond Resort Karon is set in the best location directly on the sands of Karon Beach, on the south west coast of Phuket.
The resort is situated in a perfect spot, nestled in the corner at the southern end of Karon beach, with stunning ocean views.

We have enjoyed fantastic family vacations at this beachfront resort at Karon and would recommend it to other visitors looking for a beachfront location.
Since the change of owners Beyond Karon Beach Resort is now an ADULTS ONLY RESORT.
We found the staff to be helpful and very friendly, especially the two concierge, who went out of their way to make our stay at the resort extra special.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was excellent.
There was a great selection to choose from including, cereals, tropical fruits, eggs that are made to order, bacon, sausages, baked beans, pastries and more.
Get there early to get a table on the balcony as the views are breathtaking.
Located right next door to the resort is a money exchange booth and a mini market, ideal for buying extra water, chocolate Hershey bars and cheap alcohol.
Close by the resort is a fantastic range of restaurants that serve good, delicious food, at reasonable prices.
A couple of our favorites are Ruam Thep Inn which is set directly on the beach.
Or just across the road at Kata Villa Steak and Seafood restaurant.
On the beach you will find a massage hut that is well worth a visit.
A little further down the beach is a beach vendor who rents the sun beds and sells sandwiches, fresh fruit, shakes and cheap beer.
