This is our second stay at this resort, the last in 2010. June is off peak, the monsoon season. Paid at a low rate about 1500B. On reaching, we were told that the standard rooms were closed for renovation thus upgraded our room to superior and pool view. We were provided free mini bar drinks daily. Pleasantly surprised. As usual,... More

For the price I paid online - $36 a night including breakfast, this is the best deal I found. The location is literally around the corner from Karon Beach and a ton of restaurants and shops. There is free, strong WiFi, decent breakfast, TV with DVD player in the room and the Mini Bar is complimentary. (haven't seen that before)... More

Great Location in Karon. a 2 minute walk to the beach and in the Main road for great food. The pool is AWESOME and the free Desktop internet was a great help. Hired a a scooter from the hotel and toured the Island. To be honest though, you can get better for the same price

Guests of Malai house and Sugar Palm Resort shares the same facilities such as pool, free internet, breakfast place. The reception counter is the same too. The room is spacious and bathroom is very new and clean. Though there’s singing at the nearby... More

Booked this hotel via www.sawadee.com . Paid only USD 24.00 per night. This hotel shares the same management as the slightly expensive Sugar Palm Karon (both buildings were connected to each other). Guests from Malai House are able to utilise facilities at Sugar Palm. Nice pool and minimal gym facilities. Breakfast was quite good! Plus side is that this property... More

Malai House was a pleasant stay for us. They charged us for a Hotelroom with Aircon, TV, fridge, attached bathroom 500 Bath. The room itself is nothing special just basic, but still I would say it's better than the most rooms in Thailand, which you get for 500 Bath. The Hotel is located about 1.5 km from "Phuket Beach" itself.... More

On my backpacking trip around the Krabi and Phuket area with my son (age 7) we have now come to Phuket/Karon. Here our intention was to stay at the Sugar Palm, but that was fully booked. Trying to find a hotel with 1-2 days notice do mean that you have to accept the situation. So we tried Malai house instead,... More
