Pacific Club Resort

Boutique Hotel and Oasis in Phuket

Writes about this Secluded yet Central resort in Phuket which ensures that all the guests a grandeur stay in budget

Who can go to Thailand and not go to its paradisiacal beaches? We’re no different! So, after Bangkok and Chiang Mai, we went to Phuket. And nothing better than an excellent hotel like Pacific Club Resort to assure the success of your stay. It is located on Karon Beach’s most prime location. Perched on a hilltop with easy access to local attractions and only 10 minutes’ walk from the beach and 15 minutes to Karon Village and a 20min drive away from the iconic Patong Beach. 

Why Did We Pick This Hotel

  • Pacific Club Resort is a luxurious and affordable option in the heart of Phuket. It is in a secluded part of Karon, while still being relatively close to restaurants and nightlife of Kata and Karon. It offers peace and privacy on the famed beach
  • A perfect value for money
  • A sea facing rooftop swimming pool with a great view
  • We can rent a scooter at this hotel and they also offer taxi services at fair prices
  • The spa, food&beverages, and even the laundry rates are very reasonable though the quality of service provided is great
  • Though it is not very close to the nightlife of Patong and the busy Phuket, the resort is a striking distance to some of the beautiful places to feel the pulse of the calm beach and oceanside park

Our First Impression

We walked into that delightful front entrance to be greeted by the friendly staff (and a very warm welcome with fresh fruit juice). We knew we had made the right decision. In every way, the premises are immaculately clean and the blend of Mexican and Thai architecture is exquisite. All the staff was genuinely more than happy to help. We felt that we were part of the “family”.

Location Highlights

As you can see from the map, Karon Beach is located on the southwestern coast of Phuket, a bit more than 1hr away from the Phuket International Airport when traffic is good. So that needs to be factored in when you’re planning your trip.

While Karon takes more of a trip from the airport, it does put you closer to attractions like Promthep cape and Phuket old town and the Big Buddha, so it’s not a bad base if you plan to explore Phuket’s must-see spots in the Central/South area. The are 7 Eleven(Supermarket chain) and ATM and money exchangers within 10 minutes so you can stock up on treats if you so desire.

Restaurant / Bar           

The Dining Room / Restaurant offers an international menu for the convenience of the guests. The delectable cuisines can be served anywhere in the resort. 

The buffet breakfast was fresh, had more than enough varieties to go round. You get to order omelets, huevos rancheros, eggs benedict and others at the live food counter, then pick from a buffet spread of fried rice, meat, french toast, baked beans, hot dogs, milk with corn flakes, and fresh fruits and juices.

The Meal – Since the time we’ve left this place, we have been missing their delicious fillet of white fish burgers & chicken on a grilled bun! While there may be many other places to eat in and around town, we found ourselves eating at the hotel way more than expected. The menu has plenty of quality varieties of flavorsome food priced at a very reasonable rate compared to many other places around.

The yummy dishes we tried during our stay

1.Fried Fish Sandwich on a grilled bun – Fillet of white fish, Lettuce, Tomato & Tartar sauce

2.Chicken avocado bacon – Chicken, Avocado & bacon on a grilled bun, finished caesar dressing

3.Salmon Florentine – on a bed of spinach, fish & cream sauce , served with yellow rice & sautéed veggies

4. Chicken cordon Bleu served with mashed potatoes & veggies.

The rooftop swimming POOL was very special. The views were magical with lush mountains on one side and then the view of the ocean on the other. We were above every other hotel in the area so we were looking down at everything around us.  

Resort transportation

Pacific Club offers transport facility at rates far more economical than those being charged by local tuk-tuk drivers. We advise using the hotel transportThey provide free shuttle service to the beach on schedule timings.
