About Pineapple Guesthouse

Pineapple Guesthouse comprises 26 private rooms, a ten bed dorm and a cafe.

The private rooms are all comfortably furnished with good mattresses and air-conditioning, cable TV, en suite bathroom with hot shower, a safe, fridge and free wifi access. Most of these are designated superior as they have balconies. Standard rooms have similar facilities but are at the back of the guesthouse with no balconies. Twin rooms with balcony are found in a different building.

We have king (six foot beds), twin and triple rooms available. The triples consist of a double and a single bed, so two of you will have to share a bed.

The dorm room is now closed

Pineapple Cafe has good Thai food at cheap prices, a selection of English foods, a great breakfast menu plus reasonably priced beer and drinks.

Pineapple Guesthouse offers free wi-fi throughout. The guest computer, however has died and will not be replaced due to lack of use these days! There's also a laundry service and book exchange. Airport pickups are available at an extra cost.

Pineapple Guesthouse is located in Karon Plaza. It's a relatively quiet area, especially in low season, but with a number of bars, restaurants and shops in the vicinity there's plenty to keep visitors occupied. Karon Beach is just four or five minutes walk. It's a beautiful stretch of coastline though it can be busy in high season. You are also within walking distance of Kata and close enough to Patong for an exciting night out.

Steve and Lek, your English and Thai hosts, are very knowledgeable about travel within the area and are happy to help in whatever way possible. The staff are all very friendly and a that helps to create the friendly, sociable atmosphere at Pineapple.

Accommodation Information

Pineapple Guesthouse has 19 private aircon rooms, one fan room (not en-suite) plus a ten bed mixed dorm.

The private aircon rooms each have an en-suite bathroom with hot shower, 85 channel cable TV, in-room safe, large fridge with free drinking water (not low season) and air-conditioning. We have kings, twins and triples available. The triples have one 5 foot bad plus a single so two of you will have to share. Most private rooms are up two flights of stairs so may not be suitable for the elderly or infirm. They are all nicely decorated. Our superior kings are all newly decorated and have balconies.

The dorm is on the first floor (second for you Americans!). It is mixed, has ten beds, two showers, one toilet with another available on the ground floor. Each bed has its own good sized locker. The dorm has aircon for use at night from November to March only, as well as loads of fans.

The ground floor double bed fan room has an outside bathroom but the room has fridge, safe, TV and wifi. It is a small, fairly basic room so please don't expect too much.

Linen and towels are provided for all guests and the rooms are cleaned daily, provided you don't spend all day lazing in bed!

Location Information

Pineapple Guesthouse is located at the southern end of Karon, about five minutes walk to the beach, in an area known as Karon Plaza.

In the immediate vicinity you'll find a number of restaurants, bars, shops, massage places banks and ATMs.

Karon is a medium-sized resort. It's too quiet for some, too busy for others but for many it's just right. There are no nightclubs but Patong is a 15 minute drive away in a tuktuk. In low season Karon is usually very quiet.

The main attraction is the beach; a long stretch of golden, squeaky sand. It gets quite busy from December to March but can be prectically deserted from June to October when the monsoon makes swimming unadvisable.

Kata Beach is a twenty minute walk away for a change of scenery. We can also suggest pools nearby which can be used for a reasonable cost.

Snorkelling, surfing (low season only), beach volleyball and minigolf are available locally. Other sports you can try include shooting, scuba-diving, go-karting, fishing and cable skiing.

Tours to Phi Phi and James Bond Island are popular. Phuket Town, Wat Chalong and the Big Buddha can also be arranged. There's a footpath to Big Buddha close to us so if you are feeling energetic, and it hasn't been raining, we'll show you the way.
