Great location, only 3 minutes walking from Karon Beach. Really close to many restaurants, bars, markets, travel agencies and spas. Hotel was lovely, room was good and free wifi. Breakfast really tasty and international food. Reception staff really attentive and polite. Minibar for free was a big deal (specially with the kids). Pool was ok.

My wife and I live in Phuket, but decided to take a little vacation to the beach. The hotel is located within a stones throw of the beach. The breakfast is very nice with good selections. Our room was tastefully decorated and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming into town.

This hotel is a three minute walk from Karon beach which is awesome. If you're looking for something solely with good location this is for you. Plenty of bars, shops and street food just steps away. However the hotel is a little dirty, my sheets had stains on them, and the king bed is really just two twins pushed together...

The hotel is in close proximity to restaurants, bars, the beach and various mini marts and markets. The room has air con, wifi, satelite tv, a minibar that is refilled daily and a lovely little balcony to hang any wet clothing. The room has a big double bed for us, and cleaned daily. The lobby is small and not air...

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

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.
