Traveller (4020)
Room & Suite (850)


Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Drawing its inspiration from the Sino-Portuguese architecture that characterises Phuket Town, this resort on Karon Beach is backed by a green hill and grouped around its own landscaped water park with its meandering lazy river, waterslides, kids’ pool with a waterslide, and adults-only pool with its own pool bar. You will love the other exhilarating leisure activities on offer, including kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, snorkelling, tennis, and Muay Thai (Thai boxing). Diving can be arranged, and there’s a fully-equipped fitness centre. Spa Cenvaree combines ancient healing practices that reflect Thailand’s wellbeing heritage with modern rejuvenation techniques to nurture and rebalance the body. The resort also has age-specific kids clubs, free Wi-Fi, and seven restaurants and bars. The rooms, suites and pool villas (49 to 209 sqm.) feature a balcony or terrace with soothing views of the pools, the gardens or the sea. Phuket International Airport is less than one hour away.

It’s an old property , not as per 4-5 star category. Staff don’t understand English .Rooms are very humid and many things inside room are either broken or not working. Almost nothing to eat for Indian Vegetarians. I would have given them 1 star rating but beach at the hotel is

Stayed here for just 3 days in a deluxe pool room, it was fabulous. The view was awesome both during the day and at sunset. The bed faces the view which is lovely (although I'm not keen on a bed without a wall behind it - I think I'd redesign the walls!). The hotel is set on

Hi again, the pools were a little chilly but it didn't stop our kids getting in,the outside temp was about 30* c...the only thing I would say is that the rooms are not big and you may feel squished in one room with your kids, if you can stretch your budget try for a 1 bed suite, they have a pool as well, we upgraded and didn't regret it at all.

Hi Booba, I am pretty sure they all face on to the ocean, it's just how far from it you are. Our first night was spent in a pool suite and it was towards the back of the resort overlooking gorgeous gardens, the restaurants and then the ocean...other rooms looked over the carpark then the ocean and in others the pools were on ground level so you could basically hop, skip and jump to the beach (these were lacking privacy though, everyone looks straight in). It is the most amazing resort we have ever stayed in, you will love it. I would email the resort and ask, they were fantastic at responding to my questions.

Hi there. They won't allow the sun lounges on the beach. You can only use the sun lounges which are located around the pool or decks which is directly in front of the beach. We were told the local laws do not allow them to be on the beach. There is a beach feel around the pool area which is really great.
