Above satisfactory/expectation.”

hotel room, private jacuzzi, away from the crowd

We were happy that the hotel could accommodate us with the deluxe room due to overbooking with the superior room that we initially booked for. The hotel is situated about 5-10mins walk away from the main town in Karon Beach which is a fair amount of time and it is nice that it's situated on a hill so the view of the Karon Beach if you have rooms with ocean view is good. The only down-fall is walking up the steep slope to the hotel lobby, but I would say it's a good few seconds exercise from all the eating in town. The hotel has a unique elevator as a mode of travel from the lobby to the resorts. It's quite an interesting experience riding on that elevator. We really enjoyed our stay at Karon Phunaka Resort because it nicely situated on the hill away from the crowd and noise. It was relaxing and rejuvenating especially sitting in the jacuzzi at night on the balcony. Would consider staying again if I were to head to Karon Beach in future! (:

Away from busy area, not too far, good standard”

Attentive staff, high location, views and pool

I could see that Karon Beach is a good family beach area with clean beaches. Karon Phunaka Resort and Spa is located, away from the busier beach area, and is high up on the hill, with great day and night light views over Karon Beach. We had a good stay with attentive staff, not many guest there (probably because we were there at the start of the season). We found it to be a good standard (saw Thai airline crew check in). Every half hour there is a 5 minute, Shuttle bus service provided to shopping area, it is good to walk down the hill too. Cheap Tuk Tuk or taxi back if needed. The spa resort has a pleasant pool area. The spa did not seem to be open when we were there (again maybe our timing) however, there is plenty of that in town. Restaurant area was very pleasant taking in the beautiful views. Service and food were fine. We only spent 2 nights here and for us that was enough before our next more adventurous destination. The Thai staff had limited English and the fluent English speaker was a Russian, which was fine, however, it seemed to take away from some of the Thai charm.

Fabulous Infinity Pool overlooking Andaman Sea”

Infinity Pool, attentive staff, good restaurant food.

The pool and setting for this resort is the best thing in Karon. Set high above the characterless and tacky Karon town, it was what made our trip. Our room was huge, sometimes had a faint smell from the bathroom (but a good airing will help). We loved the restaurant food - well worth the slightly more you pay. We ate at Nok Noi and Ying in town - Nok Noi was terrible and Ying was fine - but the food at the Phunaka restaurant was fabulous. Just hang out by the pool all day - really no reason to go into town or to the beach, believe it or not. The pool was quite and the views extraordinary. The beach by contrast was noisy, crowded and blah.

Great place nicely niched in the hills”

Nice location with an amazing sea view from my room and from the infinity pool. Nice staff and very helpful staff, going out of their ways to accommodate, except maybe the older one there after 00am

The stay at the resort was mostly very nice. The staff is always smiling (except the older staff there after midnight). The others did their best to help book an additional night at the hotel + a1 day tour. He did forgot helping us reactivating our card key but it was one little detail. Although our room was in the 8 th building, all the way up the hill, it was fine as there are two elevators to bring you there without breaking a sweat. Plus, our room had an amazing viewof the sea and the place around Karon. Finally, the infinity pool is definately a plus in the hotel where you can watch the sunset sipping on a cocktail. Now the downsides: 1) our driver from the hotel was not there welcoming us at the airport. Had to phone the hotel and when we finally found him, he told us he was waiting in his car.. 2) i saw him falling asleep! (We came on an am flight) Nothing happened, but still. . 3) hotel dîner set is nice and it was just enough for me (I'm 5"1). Not sure it would be enough for everyone 4) no brushes in the room or at the reception. If you have long hair and you've spent your day sweating, putting sunscreen, bathing in sea water, you know it's a nightmare! 5) hotel is 10-15 min walk from Karon Beach, but it offers a free ride from hotel at designated time. Not sure they have rides back, if not, taxi is 200 baht which is quite pricey as the five is not even 5 min. No tuk tuks in sight in Phuket and they don't even bargain!

Best stayed resort in Karon”

Nice infinity pools, perfect deluxe room with outdoor jacuzzi bathtub

We wer really enjoyed staying for 1 night in Karon Phunaka Resort and Spa. It is a romantic hotel but too far away from karon beach. Eventhough the hotel provides us shuttle to Karon beach but it is only one way not a return trip, so we need 15 minutes walking to go back to the hotel. It's quite surrounding and every point of our room, we have sea views to die for. Overall, we really have a great experince staying here. The stafs are really friendly and they can speak english very well.

Nice and relaxing hotel”

Infinity pool, nice staffs and wide variety of breakfast

I didn't regret picking this hotel. We actually took a lot of time picking where to stay in Phuket. Karon and Kata areas are always our favourite areas there, but there were so many hotels to look at. What caught us for this hotel was the view from the hill, room and infinity pool. When we arrived, we weren't kept wait for too long and there are lifts taking us to our room. The second lift up to the hill was quite slow though, but it was another nice experience as we had never had been to any hotel like before. The breakfast is super nice and varied every morning. The swimming pool and pool bar staff were excellent! We loved it here.

beautiful view, friendly staff, large and clean rooms

You can't beat the views from this hotel. The ocean stretches out to the horizon. Karon town is nestled between the beach and the hills, and the Big Buddha is visible on a nearby hilltop. The hotel is build into the hillside and there's a fun elevator/mini-tram that takes you up the hill. Staff is friendly and helpful, but sometimes we needed to ask for things twice. Relax by the infinity pool or head down to beautiful Karon beach via the hotel shuttle or a 10 minute walk. Breakfast buffet is good, offering both Thai and European breakfast foods.

Beautiful resort but needs maintenance ”

Very picturesque resort set atop a hill at Karon. The pool looked better than it did in pictures and so did the views. Pro tip: soak in the pool before 6pm to enjoy happy hour and the sunset! Breakfast spread was ok, a mix of Asian and western. There’s a small shop called James Restaurant just near the entrance of the resort, serves up hearty home cooked Thai food! Def way better than those along Karon Beach Cons: - takes about 15min to get from the bottom of the hill to your room. There’s a funicular that brings you up to the different levels but it takes very long and it often crowded - toilet in the room STINKS. It was easily resolved by closing the door at all times but occasionally you get a whiff of the stench Overall a very pleasant stay that is super worth it based on the price we paid during this peak season. Would recommend!

surprise hit in phuket”

Really enjoyed this hotel. It is true that its far from the beach but the trade off is probably the best view in all of Karon, from either the great pool or your room. If you are looking for something more private rather than in the town this is a perfect choice. The funicular adds a sort of bond hideout feel to the experience which I rate a plus, though I imagine if it was broken as some others have reported it would be super frustrating. Its absolutely spectacular value for the money if you get a deal on the rooms. No problems with the staff except that I feel they "play it by the book" a bit. I think the managers should let them lighten up and use their best judgement rather than follow some strict guidelines of what they can or cant do.

Very nice hotel located on a hill overlooking Karon beach. Spacious room with all the required amenities. Helpful staff. The only downside is that the hotel should provide more frequent shuttle service to reach Karon Beach especially during the afternoon.

Nice hotel with poor service ”

View from the room, Clean rooms, swimming pool

I stayed here for three nights with my sisters. We selected this resort since we do not need "Pool Villas" but a nice and big swimming pool. At first, we fell in love with Phunaka but were very disappointed in the end. Some drawbacks (among many others) are: -Location: It is rather far from beach and stores. We loved to walk, but sometimes walking in hot weather was tiring. The hotel provides free one-way shuttle service to the Caron Beach, but it operates only during the morning time, and not that often. -Bureaucratic service: There is no indoor elevator in this hotel except for an outdoor one, which is far from any rooms. This means that carrying luggages needs a lot of labor. When we checked out, it was raining very hard. Obviously, It was almost impossible for us to carry our bags to the reception. I called the desk, and they lied that they do not operate buggy cars when it rains. (I saw it was normally operating when I checked out) Moreover, they said that they do not have staffs to help us until10 am. What?? Then we would miss our airplane.... So, we had to carry our luggages down to the reception through the long passageway and stairs in the rain. -Breakfast: This beautiful resort was a heaven for group tourists. My breakfast time was not peaceful at all. People hit each other, competing to secure nice big tables, and some even spit and spilt food on the floor. I called the staffs and asked help to find a table for three, but as you can imagine, they did not really care. They even forgot to serve coffee. The hotel facilities were flawless, and I met a lot of great staff members, but I think I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone unless they improve their service and change their receptionists. (And provide 24 hour hotel service.)

Breathtaking views, delicious food”

The views from the room and pool was beautifully breathtaking

If you are looking for a getaway, away from the hustle and bustle of life, this is the resort for you. The location is a bit of a trek to Karon beach but only a 5 minute walk to the Main Street on Karon. With the views of the Andaman Sea from the room or pool, it's the perfect place to hang out at for the whole day,

Beautiful facility with friendly attentive staff.”

Views of the Ocean, Beautiful Pool, Quiet & peaceful surroundings.

Very comfortable stay, with easy access to town and Karon Beach! The infinity pool is absolutely beautiful, with views of the Ocean right from the pool. The pool bar is convenient, but charges a hefty premium for any alcohol you buy there, as compared to the same drinks at their Lobby bar or in your room. They offer cheap shuttle service to town or the beach, although the walk only takes about 10-minutes.

Highly recommended”

Standard of room, great view and staff

The standard of the rooms is excellent and the hotel offers great views of Karon. The infinity pool is fantastic and the breakfast is fine. I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have walking difficulties, unless you have a car, as it is located on a steep hill.

Absolute first class luxury”

The entire staff, the beautiful surroundings and views, the food

I booked this hotel as I was unable to get into the same hotel as my travelling party due to my booking so long after them...and I hit the jackpot. This hotel was absolutely the last word in luxury and the view from my balcony was out of this world....straight out to sea. I enjoyed the hotel and its surroundings so much that my friends had to keep nagging for me to leave and come join them..... The staff were lovely to a person, the free shuttle bus and subsequent shuttle bus for a small fee such a bonus but the walk to and from the beach/town was also quick and passes by Thai homes and friendly faces and the temple/night market so lots to see on the ten to fifteen minute stroll down. I would highly recommend this hotel and should I ever be back in Phuket, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
