There is a range of restaurants and bars within the Centara Karon complex. When the weather is this good, you’ll want to eat outside as much as possible. That’s no problem, the three separate pool bars are perfect for a drink, snack or light meal during the day.

Lotus

Open for all-day dining, choose between an à la carte menu offering gastronomic delights from around the world or a buffet overflowing with flavour and variety.

Azure

Located beside the Lagoon pool is a daytime destination for both international and Thai/Asian light meals. You can also find sandwiches, salads and pizzas here.

The Mix

An indoor bar serving snacks in front of big screens where you can enjoy live sport events.

Tropix Pool Bar

Enjoy cocktails and other refreshments from the swim-up bar or served directly to your sunbed.

Lagoon Pool Bar

Swim-up service is available for drinks and snacks from 10am to 7pm.

Terraces Pool Bar

Indulge in a poolside treat at the foot of The Terraces tower, serving refreshments and snacks.

The Centara Karon Resort has three swimming pools to choose from, as well as three especially for kids to have fun in the sun. There’s more fun and games to be had in the sports centre, complete with a pair of floodlit tennis courts, a gym, snooker and darts.

Kids are well taken care of with the Camp Safari for the younger ones from 4 to 9 years old. Packed with activities, they take part in various adventures leading to a coveted sticker! For the older ones (aged 10 – 17), there’s a place for them to chill out, relax and play on their favourite games console.

If relaxation and rejuvenation is more your priority, head for the Spa Cenvaree, a sanctuary that will treat body, mind and soul. With a ‘Thailand Gold’ award from the Thai Ministry of Health, there are treatments including massages, body care, facials and nail care, for both her and him. You’ll enter a special world of Thai herbs, aromatherapy, sensory spas, water cleansing, all delivered by fully-qualified staff.

Destination info


Phuket is a real tropical paradise. Thailand’s largest island has some of the finest beaches on earth. Powder-soft sands and the clear waters of the Andaman Sea, blue lagoons, spectacular sunsets and a lush interior of hills, mountains and spectacular cliffs are the perfect setting for getting away from it all. There's no real surprise that it's a popular holiday destination for travellers across the globe!

Outdoors, there’s plenty to keep you occupied: sea trips by yacht or kayak, exploring little islands and quiet beaches, scuba diving or snorkeling, windsurfing, deep sea fishing, or just lazing on your lounger with a Sabai Sabai cocktail.

A day-trip will take you inland to see the other side of the island’s charms. Spectacular waterfalls and cheeky monkeys, eco safaris and elephant trekking, beautiful temples and charming villages are just a few of Phuket’s highlights.

Another Phuket tourist favourite is getting yourself a suit made cheaply by one of the island’s legendary tailors, or picking up a memorable souvenir of pearls, beautiful batik print goods, or pewter ware. Of course, the food is delicious, with that special Thai blend of the sweet, the sour, the fiery and the freshness of distinctive herbs. Especially when applied to the wonderful seafood fresh from the Andaman Sea. You can learn exactly how to cook the authentic way at a local Thai Cookery school, skills that you’ll certainly appreciate when you next have guests for dinner.

You can hone your golf skills on one of Phuket’s half a dozen courses. After dark, beach bars and racy ‘ladyboy’ shows keep the fun going, though a starlit sea-kayak trip is a rather more tranquil way to have a great night out.

Fascinating festivals abound, with the rather bizarre Vegetarian Festival including food of course, but also fire walking and sword-blade ladder climbing.


In the know


Centara Karon Resort offers a number of ways to make your stay extra special – if you know about them! Here are our insider’s secrets for the hotel:

Karon Beach is Phuket’s second largest, with sand so fine that it squeaks when you walk on it.

The best place to watch sunset is on the southernmost point of the island, Phrom Thep Cape.

The tradition is to take your shoes off when entering Thai homes and shops. Look for piles of them outside the door to see if it’s a habit that’s been followed.

If you are going to visit a Bhuddist temple, make sure you are properly dressed. Shorts and sleeveless tops should not be worn. Heads need to be covered.

If you are going to hire a tuk-tuk, it’s usually cheaper to flag one down than choose one that is parked waiting for customers. And always haggle whatever the quote! 200 baht per 10 km is about right.
