Stayed here for 7 nights and to be fair it was cheap so wasn't expecting a palace! The staff are lovely and the swim up rooms are fun but that's where it ends! The first room we were given had no wardrobe or drawers only shelves to store your clothes so we were moved 2 days later to another room...

Location of the hotel is excellent (in my opinion), you are 2 minutes from Karon Beach, and the same from a variety of bar, shops and restaurants. Check in was ok, the staff have limited English, which did cause us a few issues further into our holiday. Also the reception staff were not keen in helping with any queries or...

We had a poolside room, and enjoyed that. The pool is not too clean though, a lot of algae on the sides. The patio is very small, and in direct sun for most of the day, but if you are quick, you can get a lounge on the grass in a shady place. Breakfast is OK, something for everyone. Bonus...

The Sugar Marina Art is one of 4 Sugar Marina properties in Phuket. This can be confusing and despite telling the driver it was the Sugar Marina Art at Karon, I still got dropped at the wrong hotel - so make sure you show your driver the hotel on a map. Check-in at the hotel was efficient - the car...

the hotel is not bad but the rooms you see are very cleverly photographed, if you can get one pool side you are fine, I was in another part of the hotel with a balcony overlooking an extractor fan from a café, some rooms don't have a balcony

Overall the hotel is ok. But there are a few things that I dosen't like; First of all, my hotel rum smelled so "weird" and awful. I can't explain it, but almost like really old and disgusting perfume. I tried to explain this for the reception but they only made the smell even worse. Except that, the hotel room was...

Centralised location, was within walking distance from the beach, food and shopping areas at karon yet was quiet at night. Hotel was thoughtful to provide a mat for the beach and also free refillable minibar. Nice swimming pool as well.

I want to start the review by saying that we were in this hotel in December 2015 and we like it a lot, so we decided to come back. Well, a lot has changed and the hotel is an absolutely awful experience these days. Check-in is from 2pm, we arrived at 3pm and they told us we have to wait,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exciting new resort concept brings art into every aspect of your stay. Check out the cool eye catching sculptures and displays made from everyday hotel items that will tempt you to take a photo. But more than this, each creative piece of installation art is produced by our own team of staff whose talent goes beyond their gracious hospitality. The installation art has a stunning visual effect that will make you smile from the mighty stack of chairs on the lawn to the paintbrush towel hangers in your deluxe room. Check out the oversized staff photo gallery, huge mobile made from pencils, the upside down umbrellas display and the facilities wall full of TVs to name just a few. There are so many artistic delights to discover at Sugar Marina Resort-ART-Karon Beach. ... more   less
