An amazing private beach near Patong

Karon Noi Beach. sometimes also called ‘Relax Beach” is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket, home to the luxurious 5-star hotel Le Meridien Phuket. It has perfect soft white sand, shallow clear blue waters and many coconut trees to create the picture-perfect holiday background. It is quiet and unspoilt, and of course, there is a good reason for this little paradise to remain so exclusive: Karon Noi is one of the few private beaches of Phuket.

Karon Noi Beach in Phuket

Karon Noi Beach is occasionally called ‘Relax Beach’, remaining of the old days when the first tourists arrived on the island, but you will possibly see on the map as ‘Haad Karon Noi’ or ‘Hat Karon Noi’. This is because ‘Haad’ or ‘Hat’ means ‘Beach’ in Thai.

Karon Noi Beach

This heavenly cove is tucked between Patong and Karon Beach, both very busy seaside towns. Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort found this little paradise a long time ago, and while there are legally no private beaches in Phuket, you can own the land around it, which allows you to restrict access. So you guessed it, the only way to enjoy this beach is to be a guest at the hotel.

Where to stay on Karon Noi

Le Meridien Phuket

The only way to enjoy a stroll on Karon Noi Beach is to be a guest at Le Meridien Phuket. This large hotel is one of the first to open in Phuket decades ago, but it has not lost any of its charms. Not only the private beach is amazing, but the swimming pool is also one of the largest on the island. If this wasn’t enough, Le Meridien boasts no less than 7 restaurants, an immense fitness room, many watersports, a great spa and kids club.

Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort has the rare privilege to be the only hotel to have access to Karon Noi Beach, one of the most enviable beaches of Phuket, just next to Patong Beach.

You can also come for lunch and you are then free to walk around, which is what we usually do. Sure the price of the lunch is higher than your usual local restaurant, but it’s worth it since you get to access this exclusive beach! The security is pretty tough, especially if you come on a motorbike with a big camera bag. Less so if you arrive by car.
