Sugar Marina Resort Surf Kata Beach

Thailand, South East Asia

This hip hotel at one of the top surf beaches in Phuket offers unforgettable accommodations to surfers and tourists alike. Right from the moment they arrive, guests will feel the warm hospitality of the owners and staff, which welcome every newcomer with a complimentary minibar filled with chilled beer, juices and snacks, and replenished daily. For those who need to stay in shape with a different type of routine, a gym, as well as yoga and aerobics classes are available. For a change from the salty sea waters, guests can take a dip in the centre piece of the resort – the U-shaped swimming pool featuring a distinctive compass design that lights up at night. 

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Pleasant stay

Review by kitsune02

Stayed there with families. We’ve got rooms on floor 3. The aircon is supa cold, room is tiny, balcony to abandoned building next door and hot & good pressure in shower...

Breakfast is limited as we visited the place during low season (virus outbreak) we couldn’t ask for more. But what we had are all fantastic. Pool looks dirty so we did not try. Japanese-Italian Restaurant is just across the road and it is yummy. Convenient store is only few mins away as well as the sunset Kata beach. Parking area is limited.

Clean & modern hotel with the very best hotel staff you could wish for .

Review by Global791880 Surin, Thailand

My mobility is hampered because of a spinal problem but the hotel staff went out of their way to help me every day and took me to various restaurants . Two of the staff named Ying and Dao were a great help and funny girls . The hotel restaurant was not working and so I would order food from reception or Grab but in the evenings would go to a restaurant named Anns , 1 km away and was driven there by the hotel staff and collected when finished my meal . My room was next to the large swimming pool. The rooms decor was modern with a flat screen TV ...

Problem was the walls between rooms is thin and you can hear the next doors TV and talking . The bathroom is 5 star , enclosed shower cubicle with both a rain and wall shower . Also a large bath . Lots of hot water and luxurious bath towels . Mini fridge with free daily top ups of water , coke , juice and chocolate biscuits .The beds were super comfortable and had beautiful white cotton sheets and duvet . My aircon was good but a little noisy . The two daily maids who made up my room every day were brilliant and funny . I will return to this hotel again in about two months when I have to return to Phuket .

Excellent hotel in Kata/ Karon

Review by R8678CKhannahd Hong Kong, China

Sugar Marina Surf is situated near to the north of Kata beach and is walking distance to the south of Karon beach. The hotel accommodated us after another hotel had messed up our booking. All the staff are extremely helpful...

The rooms are fantastic and the beds are so comfy. We wanted a twin so they came to change the bed for us as soon as we went out from the hotel for the evening. The rooms contain a mat to take to the beach, free soda drinks each day in the room. Nice toiletries. Beach/ pool towels are also provided. The pool is nice and gets sun until about 3:30pm- be warned the floor around the pool gets very hot. There is a boxing gym and small machine gym, I didn’t use but it would be good for a simple work out. Breakfast was ok but not outstanding like the rest of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Modern Hotel

Review by 423lindsaye Virginia Water, United Kingdom

Stayed for my final few nights in Phuket and loved it. The hotel is incredibly modern and clean. The staff are super helpful especially when it came to late checkout and storing luggage...

The rooms are so amazing with huge beds. Loved the pool and laying by it in the afternoons. The location is great with it really close to the beach and night markets. One tiny downside is the building work next door but stops at 6pm.

Perfect Xmas Getaway

Review by Tanheartssteph Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Wanted a Xmas get away and found this perfect gem in Kata. The rooms and hotel are as good as the photos and it’s modern and well kept. The rooms are large, cleaned daily and room service is very good...

The food is delicious as it’s from a restaurant nearby called Mama Indigos which is one of the best restaurants in Kata. I would say better than the Boathouse which is twice the cost. The staff are friendly, Ying especially as her English is very good and she is very helpful and has such a happy and infectious demeanor. Our room was ground level. Defiantly worth the extra money for access to the pool and ideal for late night chats. The pool is well kept. There is noise from local building work, and the place did offer us to move hotels, but visiting the other Marina Surf we decided ours was by far the best and we decided the noise wouldn’t ruin our holiday. It starts at 9am and finishes at 5pm. It hasn’t ruined my holiday though, as I feel the staff and the place is exactly what made my holiday as nice as it was. There is a small gym too, which is tiny but good enough for a morning or afternoon working out. Breakfast is standard. But in all honesty Kata is shocking for a good breakfast, so our hotel and the breakfast club, which is double the price are and were the only decent breakfasts. I would advise visiting different beaches around Phuket and grabbing breakfast along the way. All in all a perfect holiday get away
