... and taken to the ferry port. When a pick-up truck turned up we were caught unawares, but it turned out to be a whole new experience when there was about 8 of us plus baggage all crammed in to the back of the truck whilst the guy was positively enjoying watching us being hurled around as he picked up speed for every bump and proceeded to take the racing line into every corner. Consequently we arrived at the ferry port about 2 hours early.

... snore, I dug my knuckles hard into his chest—a sternal rub to paramedics. Nothing. Not good. After shifting my body, new light shone on his head to reveal a good amount of already congealed blood that had come from somewhere at the back of his head. It didn’t appear to be flowing anymore and I wasn’t about to move his neck to find out. His eyes weren’t dilated and he had a strong pulse but he was definitely out.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marina Phuket Resort Karon

    Time to breath

    from

    My fiance and me were staying in the Marina Phuket in December 03 and we really found it to be very relaxing. We made our decission to go on holiday kinda late in October and found the hotel on the internet and hence also did our booking over the internet which was absolutely hazzle free and convenient. I had booked a Jungle room at a good price directly through their website.

    Fantabulous Time at Marina Phuket

    from

    Had an absolutely fabulous time at Marina Phuket in a jungle room. We stayed for 10 days and were amazed at the friendliness of the staff day in and day out. We found that the food at the restaurants was some of the best we had and we tried every nice restaurant around Karon and Kata. In fact, we LOVED the great breakfast every day. What a wonderful way to start each day.

    Beautifully landscaped Marina Phuket

    from

    Stayed at Marina Phuket for 2 nights mid-January. Was surprised that it was right smack in town but that said, once you entered the grounds, it felt like a tropical island setting. The plantings, flowers, etc are magnificent and beautifully maintained. The rooms are very nice (stayed in the Jungle villa) with a lovely balcony deck overlooking the plantings.

    Gorgeous tranquil hotel, near beautiful beach

    from

    This hotel is just ideal. Near everything yet tucked away, pretty rooms (understated and tranquil) delicious breakfasts, first-rate staff--all right at the edge of one of the prettiest beaches on Phuket. We stayed four nights, wish it could've been much longer.

    Lovely Hotel

    from

    My family and I have been staying at Marina for many years and love it. Unfortunately the redevelopment of the beach villas has, in our view, lost some of its attractions. The new villas are very nice but they dominate the headland and the hotel too much. The beauty of Marina was its anonymity yet great location. It's much more visible now. The old, basic villas were much more suited to the location and style of the hotel but that's progress for you. If you didn't know what it was like before then don't let that put you off though.

    Friendly staff, great food, excellent location

    from

    Everything about this place is great: the pool is beautifully landscaped, the open air restaurants have excellent food, the location is perfect at the end of Karon beach, the staff is very friendly, many of the rooms have nice views. We haven't been there since the tsunami of 2004 but I hear it came through fine.

    Amazing Rooms

    from

    I had a wonderful time at the Marina Phuket. The members of the staff were very attentive and helpful, but what really impressed me were the rooms. We got the ocean view villa which had a small outdoor balcony-perfect for reading a good book. The rooms came with plasma tvs, nice large showers, and very comfortable beds. This was truly the nicest room I had ever stayed in and immensely better than any hotel if what you care about is privacy, comfort, and peace. Once you step out of your villa, you walk through this amazingly lush garden. I saw frogs, snails, and all sorts of creatures. We went in May which is low season and I felt at times like we were the only people staying there. No children screaming around the pool, no drunk adults. Everything was classy, quiet, and relaxing. We booked a massage and they came to our room which was so nice (and so cheap!). I highly recommend the Marina Phuket if you are looking for a quiet luxurious and romantic (yet affordable) stay in Phuket.

    What a nice stay!

    from

    This was such a great hotel. It's definitely where the jungle meets the sea.

    Marina - superb place

    from

    A beautiful place to which we have been for many years - lets hope it, its staff and guests are safe in these terrible times.

    We hope to go back when the time is right.

    My thoughts to all,
