Welcome to our neighbourhood!
We love Karon not only for the beautiful beach. In this section, you will discover more to love about this part of Phuket.
1. Great Restaurants: Pinto & Mama Jin
Mama Jin – This restaurant is definitely a travelers’ favourite. It offers a range of well-known Thai dishes. Among our guests’ favourite dishes as Pad Thai, green curry and Tom Yum Kung. This is only a short walk away from Hotel IKON Phuket.
Pinto – For the more adventurous diners, we recommend Pinto Restaurant for the Southern Thai food that not many travelers are aware of. We love Southern Thai food for its bold flavours and unique ingredients that is only prevalent in Phuket and southern provinces of Thailand. Try the Crab Curry and Spicy Herbs Mushroom Salad.
2. Great Coffee: Paradise Espresso
For coffee lovers visiting Phuket, we recommend this café bar inside a restaurant called Paradise Espresso. Opened from noon, Khun Ball the owner serves up delicious standard coffees, nitro brews and other non-coffee menus.
3. Great Temple: Karon Temple
Other than being a place of worship and local religious ceremonies, Karon Temple also serves as a centre of local happenings and offers night markets several days of the week. This market, although smaller than those in Phuket Old Town, is a popular shopping destination set in the heart of Karon Beach in its temple grounds. In this market, you will find small knick knacks
4. Great Beach Activities
If you are an adventure type, we recommend you to immerse yourself in beach activities on Karon Beach. From a morning run along the beach, kayaking or sunbathing – you can absolutely spend the whole day here.
