Jungle and Sea
Phuket has two main nature attractions : the beautiful Andaman Sea and lush green forest.
Marina Phuket Resort, where the jungle meets the sea, combines some of the finest sea views on the island with a truly extraordinary jungle garden.
Formerly a coconut plantation, the lofty palms are now part of a lovely tender tropical jungle surrounding the bungalows and pool area and extending right down to the sea.
Marina Phuket Resort enjoys a superb location on the headland overlooking Karon Bay, one of the very best of Phuket's renowned west-coast beaches. The reception area lies on the main Kata-Karon beach road, just a short walk from the center of Kata Town. But the bungalows and restaurants are set well back from the road, providing a peaceful retreat from all the rest of it.
Over the past 20 years, Marina Phuket Resort has painstakingly integrated tropical nature and traditional Thai culture to create the ideal village resort. It combines some of; the finest sea views onthe island with a truly extraordinary jungle garden. Formerly a coconut plantation, the grounds occupy 64,000 square meters and the coconut palms are now part of a lovingly tended tropical jungle extending right down to the sea.
Much of Marina Phuket Resort is hidden away in lush greenery, with a web of wooden walkways providing easy access to both sea and jungle bungalows. The seaside units present sweeping vistas of Karon Beach and the Andaman Sea, including magnificent sunsets; the jungle units offer lush views of forest and glimpses of the pool area - one of the most appealing on Phuket. Guests also enjoy direct access to the beach, where they can swim and snorkle right in front of their bungalow.
