Specially would like to say thanks to Pooja Sogalad. Its an amazing property and a luxury stay. They provide world class service and the housekeeping is excellent. Best place to stay with family. There is a huge supermarket inside the lagoon , so families travelling with kids need not worry about food and milk. Boat services to nearby island are just adjacent to the reception and the resort will arrange for all your travel..

Specially thanks to pooja..😊💐

With best regards,

Raj..

Karma lived upto it’s reputation in Phuket. I visited here with my family and stayed in a nice beautiful duplex villa. From outside it looks okey but inside it has all to make your stay a comfortable one. The only thing you miss is a bath tub and a beach! Though it’s on lagoon but you will get no access to sand! You need to drive 30 mins to patong beach or kata beach to have sand! Location is quite with nice arcade and 7 eleven nearby. Good for quite vacation. If you want party, better stay near bangla road. Mooring lovers would absolutely like it. There is a nice Italian, French and an Indian resturant in the neighborhood.

I stayed with my family for three nights 18SEP-21SEP,2023.
Karma Team Representative Mr. Arif Khan was very very hospitable and helped in planning an itinerary. His knowledge is exemplary. He also ensured that we get the rooms suitable to our family with best views.

In the Hotel special mention Ms. Kookkik. Her services right before check in till check out were exemplary and took care of all our needs. She was very accurate in timing and arranged a buggy at the right time on many occasions. I must mention that once she herself drove the buggy to pick us up. This great hospitality from Kookkik is highly appreciated.

Not to forget, Ms. Bird was highly skillful as well and managed all our requirements too with great hospitality.

Best wishes

Sameer

We had three families were looking forward to have a great holiday and got together to have some fun but the penthouse 2 bedroom villa room 642 initially we were in was so bad and dirty. The interrior fittings are wonky and then moved to 641- aame style and just smelly cuz above the thai restaurant. And appaling . Bathroom sinks are terrible! But the overall bathroom is okay colour and we could get away. The bedmattress and the linen are fine thabk God! We had bad airconditions in the middle of the night but theu fixed them ao thank you for that. I can tell you only maybe 3 staff that are very helpful including the lady who cleaned our room- she was on the ball and had to use translator app to get the message or requests accrossed to her but she made it happened! So she deserved the big tip. The gentlemen and the ladies at the front karma villas are alao friendly and helpful but the NH is just terrible. Confusing altogether to be honest as we had to be thrown from 1 reception to another when we called. Seemed like NH just dont give a care about Karma guests from their tone! Laundry services NH staff is not helpful at all ! And karma guys seems like lost cuz i have a feeling they didnt want to cross NH toes. So not sure whats the deall there but noth are not coperating with each other hence we guests are in between.no seamless services no extra mile by making the laundry services happened on time! And horrible terrible ! My friends are not happy also. There are so many ants and balcony has drainage holes that the filters are taken out and disgusting sight. I feel veey bad for the staf that are very helpful and nice because they work hard to make us happy whilst the comapny they are part of and the surroundings are not supporting their postive working spirit.

The Resort is in the quiet part of Phuket.
Great if you are looking for some relaxing down time.

Ms. Pooja, who was assigned to us was very helpful in organizing our day trips. She was always available when we had any queries and was quick to respond.
The front desk staff were also very helpful and attentive to our needs.

Room was alright but the wooden flooring needs some maintenance, uneven and very spiky in some places. Not good especially when you have atoodler running around.

Myself and my daughter spent 10 days at the resort and had a blast. The two bedroom suite was amazing with plenty of space and very comfortable. All the staff were so friendly and accommodating. The restaurant staff were amazing and tended to all your needs and greeted you every day with a smile, and the food was very tasty. If you needed to go anywhere the resort would organise a driver or any day trips that you required.

Pooja was assigned to myself and my daughter to make our stay as enjoyable and stress free as possible. She was always available for help or to organise anything that we required. Pooja was very attentive to our needs and was very professional, her persona was very pleasant and she made our stay at Karma a very enjoyable experience.

I would defiantly return again.

This is a fabulous Resort for a quiet, luxurious holiday! The little Restaurants dotted around the Marina are worth supporting, especially now with the Covid 19 affecting all the businesses in Phuket. The awesome yachts moored in the marina are fabulous. There is a great deal to do here, without having to go out into the busyness of Patong.

We had a very memorable and wonderful stay at this resort. Mr Suleman and Mr Arif were very kind to upgrade our 2 Bedroom villa to a 2 bedroom penthouse suit. They took personal care to make our trip a memorable one. Also the front office staff ie Bird, Jimmy and Mae were also very helpful and friendly looking after our smallest needs. All in all the we are grateful to the entire team for our wonderful stay there..🙏🏻

Hi. To cut a long story short, yes it is real but be very careful. It may be the worst Karma resort. The staff are great and the setting in the boat lagoon is fantastic. If you stay there ask for a 2 bedroom villa as this is the only reasonable accommodation they have. 2 bedrooms upstairs(large) with bathroom shared and kitchen, laundry and small bathroom downstairs - 2 toilets. The furniture is old and uncomfortable and the beds are hard. The club house/Reception is old. In reality about 2-3 stars depending upon the accommodation you get. Quiet part of Phuket but the island is small and everything is a short drive. Let me know if you wish for me to expand.

The best is to rent a car with a driver is more cheaper than a taxi. The price can differ depending how many hours you need it to going around. The best price you will get if you order directly from the hotel reception.

We also booked the tours from the resort itself.... We checked with other tour operators also the costing and the resort provided us with the same charges as others. Pickup was on time and from the resort itself.
