Many families are looking for something different when they plan their vacation. They want a hotel that stimulates their kids and keeps them engaged and occupied throughout the day.
There’s a hotel in Phuket right beside the sweeping sands of Karon Beach that fulfills the needs of active families as well as couples on vacation or enjoying their honeymoon. The hotel is called Thavorn Palm Beach Resort, and it offers a unique tropical experience for its guests.
The hotel is located along Karon Beach, which is just a few minutes drive over the hill from the world-famous Patong Beach. Patong is the nightlife, dining and shopping hub of Phuket, while Karon Beach offers peace and quiet with fewer crowds and less noise.
Thavorn Palm Beach Resort is right beside one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket, which you’ll frequently have almost entirely to yourself.
Arriving at the resort, the first thing that catches visitors’ eyes is the expansive pool and water slide area. The resort is home to three large swimming pools with different features that offer something for everyone.
Three Tropical Swimming Pools
Kids will naturally make a beeline for the Blue Heaven Pool with its four thrilling water slides and a small shallow children's area. The Blue Heaven Pool area also offers plenty of sunbeds for parents to relax with a cold drink while they watch their kids have the time of their lives.
