A tropical paradise, and more.

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and only steps away from the pristine sands of Karon Beach, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket is a 5-star luxury resort that offers guests the ultimate holiday experience.

Perfect for families and groups of friends, each of the resort’s 362 well-appointed contemporary guest rooms, suites and villas are well equipped to provide the luxury of comfort and privacy amidst idyllic tropical surroundings.

Checking into our Plunge Pool Villa, we were welcomed by a complimentary platter of fruits, which we enjoyed while lounging on the room’s comfortable king-sized bed. Wooden sliding windows opened up onto a private terrace, which featured its very own outdoor plunge pool and rainforest shower.

Guests will also find a complete suite of amenities, including fluffy bath robes, a massive bathtub and separate shower, lighted makeup mirror, closet, safe, tea and coffee making facilities, a minibar and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Being Villa guests, we enjoyed exclusive access to the tranquil ambience of The Coconut Grove Pool. Families might want to head to the main pool, which has a waterslide, a cool swim-up bar and a children’s mini-pool. Further catering to those travelling with little ones, the resort has a Little Birds Club with a large play area and a range of programmes and recreational activities to keep them entertained.

A not-to-be-missed experience is at The Spa, where one can indulge in pampering treatments to rejuvenate the body and mind. The spa grounds feature three couples’ villas and four elegant individual cabanas for privacy. Let the resident therapists soothe your tired muscles using only the finest spa products, as soon as you arrive from your flight. Meanwhile, gym enthusiasts can work out at the fully-equipped fitness centre located just next to the lobby.

MINT restaurant and bar

When it comes to dining, guests will be spoilt for choice with an impressive selection of food and beverage options. With a total of 7 restaurants and bars, there is always something for all tastes, palates and moods.  We recommend dinner at OrientAsia, which offers both authentic Indian and Thai cuisine, with dishes such as shrimp pakora served alongside tom kha gai (chicken cooked in coconut milk). Then, adjourn for drinks and light bites at MINT, with live music to wile away the night.
