Marina Phuket Resort is the lush tropical gem of Kata-Karon beaches, a mini paradise of verdant tropical foliage of the kind that has been lost over most of Phuket. Where other resort owners planted ever more concrete rooms through the past decades, this owner planted ever more trees. Today people creep out from the surrounding concrete jungles to visit Marina Phuket to see what the rainforests of this tropical island might have once looked like.

On the headland that separates Kata and Karon beaches, Marina Phuket overlooks Karon and gives its guests direct access to the beach. Rooms are either built into the forest, or on the hillside with grand ocean views. With Thai-style architecture throughout its spacious forest and grounds, this is also one of classiest resorts in this part of Phuket.

Marina also holds one of Phuket’s longest-established, and best-known restaurants, On the Rock, which has served excellent Thai dishes and seafood to Thai and foreign customers for 3 decades.

The accommodations of Marine Phuket Resort are all buried in a sea of green. Some lie deep in the jungle up the hillside, overlooking the pool, while others are right above the ocean itself, with grand vistas up Karon beach. From the beach, only the rooftops are seen protruding through the foliage. A network of elevated boardwalks connects rooms, restaurants and the beach, winding through the rainforest while keeping guests above the typical forest floor. All individual bungalow style, the rooms are well appointed with the luxuries expected of a good 4-star resort.

Marina Phuket Resort enjoys a superb location on the headland overlooking Karon Bay, one ofthe very best of Phuket's renowned west-coast beaches. The reception area lies on the main Kata-Karon beach road, just a short walk from the center of Kata Town. But the bungalows and restaurants are set well back from the road, providing a peaceful retreat from all the rest of it.

The hotel is about 45 minutes from Phuket International Airport on a headland between Kata and Karon Beaches and set in a private tropical garden and coconut plantation of 17 acres.
