Karon Sea Sands Resort and Spa

Karon Sea Sands Resort and Spa is tucked away from the noisy street just around the corner from hundreds of bars, shops and tour operators and right across from the beach. You can see the beach from the lobby, yet the pool is in a quiet little pocket so you can easily relax. At night, the surrounding streets are crowded with tourists in beachy outfits buying souvenirs and enjoying the nightlife.

The pool was surrounded by lounge chairs and had several water features that create some pleasant ambient noise. A waterfall at one end, fountains along the side and jets in the shallow portion add interest to the long, deep pool and divided it into sections. Several rooms have pool access, which would be nice as long as you didn’t stay in the one across from the swim up bar (or maybe that would be nice, too).

The Room

Our room was right across from the restaurant, so we ended up keeping our curtains closed the entire time. We recommend staying further down on the row for a little more privacy. There was, however, a nice grassy area in front of our private patio which made for a nice barefoot walk out to the pool.

The room had big, tinted windows and a large window seat, a desk area, large closets, a minibar and a spacious bathroom. Our king size bed was very comfortable.

The Food

The open air restaurant had several cuisine offerings at affordable prices. The continental breakfast served here in the morning had plenty of choices and the staff are all smiles. At night, the restaurant brings in local musicians to entertain guests as the atmosphere turns more bar-like.

There is also a small lounge bar near the front of the resort with large TV screens for catching sports games.

We enjoyed our stay at Karon Sea Sands Resort. It is a great affordable resort option that is close to the beach and the vibrant nightlife of Karon Beach.
