Great location, great facilities, great price
Away from the hustle and bustle of Patong is Karon Beach. A smaller, quieter town that is close enough to the action without being overwhelmed by it.

Just a few minutes walk up the street from the beach is the Phuket Orchid Resort.

On entering, the first thing you will notice is the giant Buddha head over the lagoon style resort pool. Its imposing shadow makes a wonderful place to place to read a book out of the hot Thai sun.

Other pools also include a long thin strip pool that offers swimouts from the bordering room balconies, a large main pool with swim up bar and fun children's pool with dolphin squirters and a variety of water slides for all ages. There are plenty of loungers, both in the sun or shaded areas, where you can lay while watching the kids or to be away from everyone.

The rooms are many and varied, with over 540 on offer, and are suitable for a couple or families. Connecting rooms are available for groups travelling together. The gardens are filled with tropical plants and the occasional visitor of the faunal kind.

The staff are friendly and relaxed and make you feel welcome, in a gentle way that the Thais are so famous for.

Dining facilities are available early morning until late at night and the side street also boasts a number of affordable restaurants and mini markets. The buffet breakfast, that is included in the room tariff, offers many varied dishes that should easily satisfy all tastes and ages.

Cash machines, tuk tuk hire and money changers are also within minutes of the resort.

An in-house spa and child care services are on offer as well.
Some of the facilities could do with a little maintenance or repaint but overall the Phuket Orchid Resort offers great facilities, in a very good location, at a very affordable price.
