This was our second stay at Horizon Karon and were happy to return. The gardens and pools are well maintained with lots of shady places to sit. The rooms are clean, the beds could be more comfortable but the beds in all the hotels we have stayed at in Phuket are the same. The staff were very accommodating and friendly, room service was prompt and the buffet breakfasts were great with lots of variety. The hotel is just a short walk to the beach however they have a tuktuk that will transport you there and back for free. Overall a great place to stay.
We were very happy with our stay here. The staff were fantastic, the facilities and food amazing. The only thing I could pick is that it could do with a revamp soon as it's getting a bit tired in some areas, 1 was our tired old spa that could barely make any bubbles lol . Other than that we will be back for sure with the family next time !
You Can easily walk to the Beach and to shopping and restaurants. There is restaurant and massage at the hotel, and the staff will kindly get you a taxi or shuttle bus.
The rooms are cleaned every Day With fresh Towels and bed linen and bottles of water as Well for free.
This hotel is such a lovely place to stay, in a great area, that is close to everything you need. The rooms, pool and gardens are well maintained and the staff were always helpful and friendly. We liked that you could get a credit to spend in the hotel if you forego housekeeping for a day. You don't always need new towels or your bed made everyday. A great place for rest and relaxation.

Located among tropical greenery overlooking the white sand of Karon Beach, this low-rise resort is one kilometer from Karon’s …More
Karon Beach is one of Phuket's famed beaches which stretches for kilometres down the coast ensuring it never gets uncomfortably busy. It is ideal for families looking for a nice break with plenty of nearby conveniences but it also caters for all other kinds of travellers too.
When creating a checklist of things you would expect and hope to see on a Thai beach, Karon would probably tick most of those boxes. The beach is home to the usual array of soft sand, tropical palms, water sports, massages being offered beachside as well as vendors selling this, that and everything. We offer plenty of Karon Beach hotels within walking distance of the ocean and within walking distance of that tan you've been thinking about going home with. However, if you're after a bit of respite from the sun or you're looking a bit red from the day before then a great place to spend an afternoon is Karon Market. This is a classic Thai food market with all kinds of fresh, fragrant and occasionally unusual produce and for anyone with an interest in food it's a great introduction to the essence of Phuket cuisine. Another afternoon activity suited to the family is Dino's Park Mini Golf which is great fun as long as tempers don't begin to fray when losing is on the cards.
After the day is done, tourists emerge from their Karon hotels looking for food and entertainment and the area does not disappoint. A range of European restaurants exist along the roads set back from the beach but for the best grub we would recommended checking out any of the Thai seafood restaurants on offer. Karon has its fair share of pubs, bars and go-go bars but they are not in the same league as those in Patong and this generally makes a night time stroll from your Karon hotel a bit more pleasant and a lot more suitable for families.
