Sugar Marina Resort - FASHION - Kata Beach3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We arrived mid-July 2016, the pool was under construction. I thought it was not a big deal since the beach is only a block away. But as soon as the morning comes, the construction noise was on full blast. My only option was to transfer to a different Sugar Marina nearby. For the the one day and one night I was in Sugar Marina Fashion, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel room itself was very spacious; however, was dirty to my standard. There was sand and dust on the floors and in the bathroom. The bathroom itself was not thoroughly cleaned, which is not hygienic. I'm not sure how a deer's head trophy on the wall is considered "Fashion". I believed they tried to make this hotel an upscale-edgy feel, but didn't succeed. Even though the beach is only a block away, I won't be coming back to this hotel.
This is the second time i have stayed at this great hotel resort ..its small and very friendly with great rooms that are modern and clean ...the pool is fantastic and so clean ..the breakfast is very good ..the room airconditioning is amasingly good as is the mini fridge with free beer and water and soda daily ..!!! I really like the area of Kata Beach where it is located...the beach is about 500 meters walk and its very clean with great restaurants everywhere the seafood is amazing ... People in this area are very friendly and dont hassle u like in patong beach ... I am happy to say this is one of my favourite hotels in The World ... Its a big call but its just so relaxing and clean and so lo-key its wonderful ... I highly recommend the sugarpalm fashion marina resort
Hotel is in a great location from the beach. Staff was friendly was helped with whatever I requested. Good place to stay for the price. Pool / Fitness center left a little to be desired. But if you're just looking for a place to crash while you experience Thailand, this is perfect!
This hotel is a great pick for its value. We wanted a nice hotel that wasn't too pricey, and this is exactly that. It's located very close to the beach and is right in the middle of Kata's main restaurant and bar area. The rooms are nice and a good size, and the breakfast is decent. If I ever go back to Thailand, I would certainly stay there again.
Good bang for the buck,
We arrived at the hotel after midnight and were kindly received by the receptionist. Our room was situated in the older wing of the hotel. It was big and well-equipped but the floor was not very clean (sandy) with two pair of dirty flip-flops for hotel guest use in the cupboard. When we mentioned this at the reception desk we immediately received well-ment apologies and were upgraded to the newer part of the hotel to a nicer room (that was clean). For the rest of the stay, we do not have any comments, as everything was perfect. Staff were friendly, breakfast was great and the room quiet and well air-conned. Around town (which is basically a gathering of tourist shops, bars and restaurants, did not see any resident houses) despite the tourist aspect you can still fairly enjoy yourself eating out (double price of Bangkok, but still affordable for us western tourists), shopping for fake clothes/goods and booking daytrips. It is worth to go to one of the booking offices to get a good price if you book two trips. We took daytrips to Koh Phi Phi (pretty but spoiled by the huge amounts of tourist visiting "The Beach" and the ugly tourist bars on Phi Phi Don, but with great scuba diving and monkeys on monkey beach) and to Koh Raya (much more quiet, idyllic island with snow-white sand and tropical atmosphere, better scuba-diving than around Koh Phi Phi and less tourists, god knows why!). For swimming and lounging on beach chairs, the beach at Kata is also very good (no scuba diving here). Take the opportunity to walk across the small stream at the end of the beach to reach the seafood restaurant for a great lunch with a splendid view!! The only thing annoying in Phuket was the taxi maffia, as it seems almost impossible to get a taxi at a fair price. We paid 750 baht to get to our hotel and 900 to get to the airport in a "limousine" taxi (we tried to book an ordinary cab, but they charge you similar prices for a ride in a less fancy car. Metered taxi's can be found at the airport, but we did not look for them as we arrived late at night and did not want to go through the trouble of avoiding the taxi rats at the airport to find the metered taxis.
