Fabulous views and updated accommodation!!

Stayed in the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort for the second time with friends in July 2014 after spending a fortnight there with family a couple of years earlier. Really enjoy the pools, pool bar, accommodating staff, service, friendly smiles, varied food choices, location and frequent shuttle bus service. Breakfast is always good too! rooms have now been upgraded and are much cleaner and healthier to stay in, with good air conditioning.
The hotel is also close to many small markets and restaurants where you can purchase cheap meals.
It is right opposite Karon Beach, which actually can be a bit rough depending on what time of year you visit.
