Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort & Spa: Review

A family friendly hotel with an impressive kids’ program from free children’s’ activities in selected rooms, to an action-packed kids’ club, to a kid-friendly pool with a waterslide. Staff dressed up as characters like Spiderman and Pikachu hide throughout the complex to surprise young and old alike. Leave your kids in the hotel’s capable hands while you unwind in the relaxing day spa with an aromatic massage or mani-pedi.

The Novotel is conveniently located away from Patong Beach’s party crowds and within walking distance of local favourite, Karon Beach, offering the best views of Phuket’s colourful sunsets. Several local restaurants serving classic Thai meals are located directly opposite the northern end of the beach while international restaurants, cafes, massage parlours, and street vendors are located a short walk away, on Patak Road. Pick-up from Karon Beach is included in most day tours around Phuket and to the Phi-Phi islands, making the Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort & Spa the perfect base to explore the picturesque holiday island.
