Retreat to the finest location on Karon Beach, one of Phuket’s loveliest stretches of sand. Located at the quietest area of Karon Bay, right on the beach, Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket backs onto lush green hills to create an air of seclusion for this exotic locale. The colourful shophouses of Phuket Town are 30 minutes away by road, as is Central Festival shopping and lifestyle centre, while Phuket International Airport is reached in approximately 50 minutes. A scheduled shuttle service connects to the shopping opportunities and the wonderful nightlife of Karon and Patong (chargeable).
Right at your doorstep, Karon Beach is a wide, fine stretch of sand that stretches over four kilometres. More chilled-out than Patong Beach, and quieter, Karon Beach offers plenty of space for beach games along with a variety of watersports. There are longtail boats for hire and the resort has lots of sun loungers for family members to relax comfortably.
The soul of Phuket is here, for the island has a long and colourful history. Reached within 30 minutes by road, Phuket Town appeals to holidaymakers with its host of colourful shophouses designed in Sino-Portuguese style and which nowadays house arty coffee shops and restaurants, narrow alleyways with Chinese Taoist shrines, and shopping opportunities for artworks and curios along with clothing and accessories. Phuket Town is also known for its bubbling blend of music, art and food. The town is reached within 30 minutes by road.
With long stretches of powdery white sand spilling into crystal clear waters, towering limestone cliffs and jungle-clad interiors, the six islands that make up Koh Phi Phi have everything one would expect of a tropical paradise. Phi Phi Ley, home to popular Maya Bay, Bamboo Island, Yung Island, Bida Nok, and Bida Nai are unspoiled islands protected by their National Park status and surrounded by warm waters teeming with exotic marine life, making them popular options for snorkelling and diving day trips from Phuket.
