Karon Beach, with its soft white sands and shimmering blue waters, is a popular destination for those hungry for a break in the roiling boil of city life. Sunshine and relaxation do a body good and to help promote physical well-being, a number of hotels have cropped up on Karon Beach and opened their doors to the life-weary guest. There is a bed and a budget for everyone, from resort-style to simply a place to lay the head between adventures.

There are fifty-one hotels offering a roof at minimum and most extend much more. If you’re looking to be completely and unashamedly pampered, thirty one of those claim resort status directly in their name and most are four-star and above; about half of those also boast of a spa on premises. Many have spacious rooms, very modern and lovely decor, with quite a few perks. Prices vary greatly between them and most expensive does not necessarily mean the best.

Those that do not stamp themselves as a resort might as well- more than one of them is equal to most of the resort-style hotels and for a fraction of the price. Some even offer full kitchens for those who would like to stay awhile or have specific dietary needs. Every bit as sumptuous as any resort but lacking an in-house masseuse, a savvy visitor can save herself a great deal of money which can be spent elsewhere on the island.

Almost every hotel, from ‘basic’ to resort, will have a swimming pool in case salt water is no longer desired and restaurants or eateries on-site so you need not waste valuable relaxing time on trying to find a decent meal. Also, each of the hotels will offer assistance in booking tours or help with suggestions on where to go and how to best occupy your time according to your desires. Some of the hotels are actually more like condominiums or apartments, so ask questions in advance.

Most of the hotels on Karon Beach have stellar ratings and no matter the budget, there is something grand to be experienced by all.

First got my exposure to the web in 1994 and well been kinda addicted to it since then, and finally made the career decision to jump in the deep end in 2007 by starting my own digital marketing agency. From there I've consulted with some of the biggest brands and agencies in Australia, spent 3 years working as SEO Product Manager for Marktplaats.nl & 2dehands.be (ebay classifieds group) but now located in London working for Schibsted Media Group.
