“a corner of relax,two steps from the sea”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

i spend ten nights in this very nice resort.It's located in a quiet street of Karon very near the beach.its a twin complex with the Sugar Palm Karon Hotel.In fact, guests of Malai House can use the same amenities of Sugar Palm like for example the swimming pool and the garden near it.
Rooms are basic but big and very clean,with daily towels to use going on the beach.
The personal is very nice and caring,even if sometimes,English language is a little bit hard for them.
you can choose to have breakfast or not. There is not a good choice of food but its very healthy and fresh.

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

Location is excellent, just minutes to the beach and lots of eatery and services outside the hotel. 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 restaurant at night, but the sound isn’t too loud. We still sleep really well. Breakfast spread has good varieties.

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 is only 3 minutes walk from the serene Karon Beach. Great sunset and I AM NOT KIDDING!! I have pictures to show!! For those who prefer night life, I won't recommend Karon beach as this place is pretty quiet. Go to Patong if you love night life.

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. It actually located on Karon Beach. The beach itself is nice but pretty rough, so we didn't go swimming there. If you stay at the Malai House you can use the big, big pool which actually belongs to the Sugar Palm Resort. Everything you need is close to the Malai House, there is shopping (food, clothes etc.), Travelagency, Postoffice and so on. You have free Wi-fi in your room.
