Real & notable Guest Reviews of Thavorn Palm Beach Resort

  • "Amazing place with amazing staff.", Google.com Review, Roman Kristek, September Year 2023

    • Amazing place with amazing staff. We stayed for 4 days and then went to other resort that was nowhere close it this one. We canceled it and came back to Thaworn Palm Beach. I have been in hotel industry for about 15 years and honestly this place is must. Thank you Thavorn.
  • "Amazing resort", Agoda.com Review, Gaurab, Thailand, September Year 2023

    • An amazing resort for the family. The service is great and they have all sorts of activities for kids. The pool has fun slides and different areas to chill. The beautiful beach is right across the street and they have great restaurants and even an ice cream cafe to choose from.
  • "A great place for families with kids!", Google.com Review, N R, August Year 2023

    • A great place for families with kids!

      For kids there is one pool with a few water slides, petting zoo that comes out twice a day and kids can feed animals (at 11am and at 4pm), kids club, painting studio and ice cream cafe that does nice cold and hot drinks, and ofcs delicious ice cream.

      Staff is very friendly, caring and attentive. We always felt welcomed. Everyone here smiles!

      The hotel territory is big, green and very well taken care of. Every day you can see the staff doing something in the garden.

      Breakfast has many good options and fresh pastries. Food is always fresh, hot and timely refilled. The are never feels too crowded.

      The hotel has an on site restaurant Ciao that does international and Asian cuisine. Food here is quite good and always fresh if you need to feed little ones. We are here many times and always found something new to try.

      Rooms are spacious, bright and clean. Our room rate included access to VIP lounge by the reception area. The lounge is very cosy,has fresh fruits, cold and hot drinks, and locally made pastries. It’s opened until 8pm.

      Highly recommend to purchase Thavorn credit that can be used at any of the hotel’s restaurants (ice cream shop, Ciao pizza, pool bar etc).

      Location is excellent. Two mins walk from the beach.

      Defo recommend this place if you are travelling with kids! 

  • "My favorite resort experience", Booking.com Review, Lee A, June Year 2023

    • I cannot recommend the Thavorn Palm Beach Resort at Karon Beach highly enough. We had a wonderful stay for six days. When we arrived we were greeted by the concierge Eddie, who was so friendly & helpful, we looked forward to seeing his big smile everday. 

      Easy access to the beach, with a road crossing directly outside the resort & a taxi service beachside. The huge tropical gardens are stunning, with meandering paths & intricate statues from Thai folklore. Three pools, one with a giant slide for the kids and one more private, swim up bars & plenty of sun lounges. Super cute petting zoo. 

      Fantastic buffet breakfast with a huge variety of Western & Thai food. Two restaurants & a cafe. The Wind Song restaurant was our favorite. It's in the main building, surrounded by flowering water lilly pools with frogs & a view over the pools and gardens. 

      The staff were wonderful. Big shoutout to Park & Wan, who we always had a lovely chat & laugh with. Our room was great too. Private balcony with a beautiful view. Fantastic bathroom with a huge modern shower. The cleaning staff were wonderful & unintrusive. There's an eco friendly option, where you get a quick room tidy & fridge restock & are given a 150 bhat voucher to use in the restaurants. 

      We also loved discovering that the resort was the first to be built in Phuket. So much character with all the mod cons. Thank you Thavorn for a holiday we will always remember with a smile. Lee :)

  • "Great stay!", Google.com Review, Katrina Bond, June Year 2023

    • Great stay! Only stayed 2 nights at the end of a trip with 2 kids (aged 5 &2), but would have loved to stay longer. Beds are firm but the Family Fun Deluxe room was very spacious, witha lovely view of the gardens, pools and some beach.

      Breakfast selection was large and tasty; the multiple pools offered plenty including water slides and a swim-up bar.
      The gardens and surrounds are beautiful!

      Petting zoo that runs a couple of times/day was a fun break for the kids.

      Being across the road from the beach was fantastic, even though the beach did have some rubbish washing up but that is consistent with Kata & Kaorn beaches on this trip.

      The road between the resort offered a very short walk to food options, massges, minimarts, shopping etc. The bus to Phuket Town also runs along this road so easy to flag down.

  • "Exceptional", ฺBooking.com Review, Lauren, Australia, June Year 2023

    • Good: This hotel is a great way to relax! There are 3 pools that were huge! Different restaurants, multiple locations for happy hour (s)! Great place for everyone - families, young adults etc. Buffet breakfast had a huge selection. Staff were very helpful and always greeted you with a smile and hello. We would come back and bring our friends!
  • "Amazing!", Agoda.com Review, Ashleigh, Australia, May Year 2023

  • "Lovely stay at Thavorn Palms", Agoda.com Review, Beverley, Australia, May Year 2023

    • We are a group of senior ladies enjoying a Phuket holiday. Thavorn Palms ticked all the boxes. We had interconnected Deluxe Terrace View rooms.The rooms were perfect for our needs. Happy hours at all the bars were great, especially the pool bar. Played good tunes , would find anything we requested. Location was awesome, close to shopping and restaurants both left and right of the resort. Easy to get transport. Wonderful relaxing stay... Karon beach in May was beautiful. Staff were fabulous. Will return again for sure.
  • "Exceptional", Agoda.com Review, Surasak, Thailand, May Year 2023

    • The staff provides excellent service. There are plenty of activities within the hotel. If there is a chance, I will definitely stay again.
  • "Great for resort style holiday", Google.com Review, Steph Tran, April Year 2023

    • We really enjoyed our stay at thavorn. Great for families with 3 pools and slides and petting zoo daily where you can feed and pet the animals. In a quiet location, great for resort style holiday. Food is great, staff are amazing, beach across the rd where they offer some activities. It was my sons bday during our stay, we came to the room to find a happy birthday greeting and cake in the fridge, it was highly appreciated. Taxi is easily accessible next to 7/11. Highly recommend staying at thavorn.
  • "Fantastic hotel, amezing location and great staff", Booking.com Review, Rebecca, Ireland, April Year 2023

    • Good: This was an excellent hotel, top class. The pools were super clean, the hotel facilities were amezing and the food was unreal. It was perfect for couples or families. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The location was great, shops and 7-11 just a few mins walk. I also adored the petting zoo! I got to feed a baby micro piggy a bottle and feed the other animals.
  • "Great place!!", Google.com Review, Martin, Hong Kong SAR, China, March Year 2023

  • "Immediately again", Booking.com ReviewJeanina, Germany, February Year 2023

    • Good: We stayed in 7 other hotels before. The resort was great and I would go back in a heartbeat. Room with pool view super large, clean just perfect. The whole area was clean, great pools, right on the beach which wasn't overcrowded, full and really nice. Friendly staff who helped immediately with everything and a great breakfast with everything you can imagine. We were at Kata Beach before and that wasn't ours because it was loud and there was one shop, bar after the next and a lot of traffic. Karon Beach was quiet at the resort height and 5 minutes away was everything for shopping and eating. You saved my vacation (;
  • "The best hotel we have been to", TripAdvisor ReviewAnitafihlp, February Year 2023

    • Visited the hotel with our 2 children aged 6 and 9. There is a fantastic calm atmosphere in the hotel and it does not seem crowded at all even though all the rooms are booked. The surroundings are beautiful with lots of trees and flowers.

      All staff are nice, smiling and helpful and greet. always when you pass by. The challenges that arise are taken care of and things are fixed immediately.

      The pool area is nice and child-friendly and is spread over a large area so there are not too many people in the same place. We have always been able to get a seat by the pool, even if we got there late. Beach and shops close by, which is nice and easy as there are exits from the hotel down towards the beach and shops.

      Can only give the warmest recommendations for this wonderful place. Sitting right now waiting for us to return to Denmark and already want to book another stay here. 

  • "Perfect staying in this top-notch resort.", TripAdvisor ReviewGregorioc25692, Livorno, Italy, January Year 2023

    • Wonderful staying in this beautiful resort, everything was perfect and we couldn’t ask for more!

      - Spacious rooms with view on the beach , pool or garden, surrounded by multiple and large pools (try the açai at the pool bar !)
      - Incredible and peaceful gardens with a wide variety of plants and flowers, ideal for relaxing and mindful walks
      - Very good restaurants: Ciao Bistrot and Grill an authentic gem on Karon with exceptional Italian (try Pizza!) and Asian cuisines, Windsong offering very good Asian dishes
      - Convenient location across the street of Karon beach and very close to Kata beach.
      - Daily Petting zoo in the morning and in the afternoon, a must-do for both kids and adults !

      Plus: incredible NYE gala, with high quality and wide variety of food (from seafood to meat to vegetables, raw and/ or to be cooked at the moment) and live show able to easily drive the night until new year

      It’s been an incredible staying and I’m looking forward for the next holiday in Thailand… I won’t have doubts on the accommodation!

  • "Never disappoints!", TripAdvisor ReviewCherhenly10, Melbourne, Australia, January Year 2023

    • What an awesome stay. I was here a couple years ago and I am amazed how much has changed. The staff here are extremely attentive with their service. All of them are lively and never failed to greet us with a smile this definitely made our stay a lot more delightful. This is definitely the best resort on the island - all their restaurants and bars are amazing. They also have so many impressive swimming pools with this massive waterslide definitely a place fit for individuals of all ages! Will be back again next year.
  • "Surreal and Amazing Experience at Thavorn", TripAdvisor ReviewJohn, California, Year 2018

    • My friends and I stayed at this beautiful resort in Phuket late November of 2017. Just right next to the resort within a couple minutes walking distance are the fabulous beaches of Phuket that makes you feel like you are in a movie. Laying in the sand while watching the sun set is quite a sight to behold. I would definitely come back to Thavorn and recommend the resort to friends and family. Kub khun krab to all the great Thavorn staff and amazing Phuket people! Kor sadaeng kwaam nap teu, John.
  • "Fantastic gardens with old bonsai" TripAdvisor ReviewRiga Latvia Year 2017

    • All the staff were friendly and helpful. Spacious and clean rooms with beautiful view, comfortable beds. Tasty and rich breakfast. Great (and clean) pools, not overcrowded, really close to the beach and close enough to shops and restaurants also (if you go out from the hotel to the sea side, turn left). But the biggest advantage of the hotel is the gardens – they’re marvelous! It worth to visit not only pool area but whole garden – there are some unique bonsai trees and other beautiful plants.
  • "Excellent dining and swimming experience" TripAdvisor Review, Tia L

    • Thavorn Palm was excellent from the food to the rooms to the amenities.. It was very close to the beach too and the staff are very friendly. I would go back here again and again and again. It’s in karon and it’s near Patong too where all the shopping and nightlife are. It has 3 different pools so you don’t have to worry about crowded swimming experience
  • "Fantastic stay" TripAdvisor Review, Sanjay from India

    • This is a fantastic resort located just on the Karon Beach of Phuket. Karon is dotted with some high end hotels and is much easy paced than Patong. It also boasts more of family crowd. I wish we stayed much more than the 3 days which we stayed last week. Top notch service and excellent rooms. The service was great and everyone in the hotel was more than eager to help without being overtly intrusive. Since we are vegetarians they went all their way to prepare special dishes for us on one of the days. A really touching gesture. The hotel boasts itself of being close to nature and we can freely find rabbits, hens on the grounds. They have 2 big tortoises, Nadia and Oscar aged 85 and 75 years. My kids were absolutely in love with them. Would surely like to come again and stay in Rooms 2203AB.


    • I stayed at Thavorn Palm Beach Resort with two my friends. It was a super experience thanks to all the great staff who were professional and passionate at work. Rooms were ever clean and so beautiful. Resort was very beautiful and nice. Its a good place for if you want to stay quiet and relax. You have a nice beach really near the resort and beautiful swim-up pools. Next time I come back here again, and I want recommend this place for all those looking to stay in Phuket this is the place for you! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN

  • "Beautiful hotel, eco friendly & great staff", TripAdvisor Review, Danielle from Australia

    • We had a great stay! Was excellent place for couples, families or friends. Nice daily breakfast, plenty of pool room and nice, clean and well cooled rooms. Good quiet but central location near restaurants and shopping. The stunning garden on site and lots of cute animals roaming the grounds is a lovely touch. We really enjoyed our stay!

  • "Lovely Stay," TripAdvisor Review, Eleanor

    • Stayed here is October with my boyfriend. Hotel is clean and staff are really friendly. There was a great selection at breakfast and many pools to choose from. I love the fact that the hotel has resident rabbits and tortoises it’s what makes this hotel unique. My boyfriend and I both had our birthdays whilst staying here and we were both surprised with a cupcake on our birthday. Hotel is in a great location, it’s an easy walk to the beach and the many restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice relaxing stay in Karon.

  • "Wonderful family holiday," TripAdvisor Review, JaFrEn75 from United Kingdom, September
    • My wife and I took our three kids to Thavorn Palm Beach at the start of the summer holidays and we enjoyed 12 days of wonderful Thai hospitality. The kids loved the pool and gardens, the staff were welcoming and our room was clean and comfortable. The gardens in the resort are unique and the care that has been taken to create and maintain the place is evident.
  • "Excellent hotel" TripAdvisor Review, Mr_luvpants from United Kingdom

    • We have just got back from a week at the Thavorn. I have been to a few hotels in Asia and they are all of the same standard. However where this hotel stands out are the attentive staff. Duty managers Eve and Kathy who went out of their way to assist us. When asked for feedback, Kathy asked us what we wanted added to the breakfast menu to which we replied “bananas,” and she went out and bought some for us out of her own money. She would not take anything from us as compensation. Thoroughly recommend.

  • "Luxury and Nature" TripAdvisor Review, Chindit76 

    • So much of the hotel’s land is set aside for gardens that, despite being right by Karon Beach Road, the hotel is quiet and feels like an oasis of peace. The three pools and numerous first-class dining options make it also fun and comfortable. The service, too, is very good, with the staff being attentive and extremely nice. The rooms are spacious and smart. Being one of the area’s older establishments, there are a few signs of age around the building, but these are no distraction from a fantastic hotel.

  • "Thavorn Palm Beach Resort – The Jewel Of Karon Beach" TripAdvisor Review, Paul H from Saratoga, Australia

    • What a beautiful hotel. My wife and I were very impressed with all the staff that made our stay a very enjoyable and memorable one. Nothing was too much trouble from anyone we asked. Close to the beach, numerous pool and food options in the hotel. Close to numerous shopping outlets and other high quality eateries. The grounds are a real credit to the Thavorn family and the gardening staff who maintain this property. I really admire the vision that Mr Thavorn had for this hotel. I would strongly recommend that you consider staying here. You won’t be disappointed. 

      Room Tip: 2304 was a good room. Higher floor of the main building the best choice.
