With more than 50 rai of immaculate gardens and vegetation, our recent stay at the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket was one of the most relaxing visits we had in a long time and we can’t wait to share the many wonders we have experienced.
The brand Mövenpick in Thailand is often associated with delicious chocolates and perfectly grounded coffee beans, but the brand is first and foremost a leading player in the hospitality industry, with hotels and resorts available all around the globe.
Phuket is home to a few resorts from the Swiss brand, one of them being set on a 52-rai land right across the stunning Karon Beach, and the subject of a recent visit from The Guide Phuket ahead of their re-opening on October 1, 2020.
With more than ten different room categories, including the highly sought-after villas and modern residences, you will be spoilt for choice! We ended up checking in one of their Plunge Pool Villas that are directly located within the luxurious vegetation design by renowned landscape artist, Bill Bensley.
The Plunge Pool Villa comes with 68 sqm. of living space. A spacious, sumptuously appointed bathroom and bedroom features sliding windows that open onto an expansive private terrace with a comfortable plunge pool, perfect for a quick dip after a day at the beach.
The resort offers four swimming pools, some of which are reserved to specific room categories, spread across the entire resort. We specially enjoyed the Coconut pool for its tranquil and serein atmosphere.
On the food front, you can trust their long experience in delivering sensational cuisine; no less than five restaurants await at the resort, from the traditional all-day dining mixing Asian and Western dishes, to their specialty restaurants offering Thai and Indian delicacies at OrientAsia, and succulent wood-fired pizzas at MINT. In addition, you can enjoy a complimentary chocolate buffet every day during their Chocolate Hour!
After a delightful meal, what could be better than a massage at The Spa, which is located on the path leading to the beach, right before Cafe Studio. The quality of the treatments and pampering received was way beyond our expectations, as was the large spread of pastries and other gourmet items we enjoyed during breakfast.
Families will be in heaven as the kids can play all day at the resort’s kids club, The Play Zone, which offers tons of activities to keep them entertained.
Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket always had a special place in our heart, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for such a stunning property in Phuket.
