Review: Movenpick Karon Beach Resort

Where one night is never enough

I only have one night here at Movenpick Karon Beach Resort and Spa in Phuket, and after checking in to my room, I’m distraught...that it is only one night.



My room and bed are huge. But as tired as I am, I‘m eager to have a splash in my own private pool nestled right outside my door. So, with a cup of tea waiting by my bed, I plunge in and luxuriate in the tepid waters under the stars.


After a great night’s sleep in a bed that could accommodate ten of me, I’m keen to explore the tropical paradise I only spied in darkness last night.


It's a sprawling resort that has more than 250 rooms and suites, set amid the tropical gardens and a stone’s throw from Karon Beach.


All rooms include free wi-fi, mini bar (not free!), complimentary tea and coffee, air conditioning and 32" flat screen TV.



Beautiful but relaxed, Movenpick Karon Beach Resort and Spa has something for every traveller. It's perfect for families, friends or business meetings, with four restaurants, three bars, three pools, spa and fitness centre, the play zone kids club and 10 meeting rooms for business.


With a range of deals and great packages, this resort and spa also offers plenty of value, not to mention the best ever Movenpick ice cream. Make sure you check it out at Cafe Studio.


I‘ll definitely be heading back, but next time for a few more nights – and another scoop of maple walnut.
