of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
After visiting the Katathani Resort, we booked our wedding there. Gorgeous private beach and setting (if the weather's nice) and to top it off we were given an upgrade on arrival! Everything you'd expect from a top resort including good service! After meeting the lovely Nina (resort knowledgeable wedding planner) we are certain that our wedding would be handled excellently and professionally. Thank you for having us for our short stay, and we hope to have an amazing time when we return for the wedding! Amazing!
"Nice resort with terribly annoying faults"
For the price, this resort just isn't worth it. Internet in the room costs 200bt a day or 500 a week extra. Then you find out that the internet connection is extremely slow. The beach is nice but very surfy so not great for swimming... No big deal as there are nice swimming pools. There are a lack of shady spots... The trees just aren't good enough as you have to constantly move the sun beds. Sun beds by the pool have shades, but the shades can't be moved so you are often in the sun anyway. On top of this, on checkout we were locked out early so were delayed with packing. Restaurants on the resort are extremely expensive. You have to go into Kata town for a choice of tacky Russian catered restaurants or, hire a moped to get a better choice. Taxis to and from Kata town are 200baht (£4.50) for a 5 minute journey (or a 20 minute walk, uphill then down). What you are paying for is exclusive access to the beach... Which is pretty busy anyway. Basically, for £150 a night you can get a much better deal, and service, elsewhere. I personally would avoid phuket main island completely as it's all resorts and nothing is left of the authentic Thailand we once knew here.
We had a junior suite for five nights at Katathani Beach Resort. This was the most luxurious hotel we stayed at during our two week trip to Thailand. The beach was the best beach we found - very few people and beautiful. You can even get a massage on the beach! We walked to Kata Beach one day. It was full of people and vendors. We caught a longtail boat for the day and went to Bon Island. It cost us 3,000 baht, but was a great decision! The breakfast buffet was good. They have an espresso machine! We ate at three of seven restaurants they had and were not disappointed with any of them. We also used the onsite dive shop to book our PhiPhi dive. If we return to Phuket, we will definitely stay here again.
"Highlight of our trip"
This resort was amazing! Beautiful rooms, right on it's own large private beach. A plethora of restaurants to choose from and 4 different pools with nice lounging area's if you want to change it up each day. Good little restaurants and massage spots 2 minutes walk away. We stayed across the road in the non-beach wing the first night and upgraded to beach front for a small fee for the last 2 nights.. think it worked out to 30 U.S to change over, they were very accommodating about this when asked and it made ALL the difference! Maybe check in advance beforehand as to which part of the resort you are in first. Tried to book in an extra 2 nights but they were fully booked so we had to move:(
"Catherine and Eli Curry wedding"
Katathani beach, what can I say "breath taking" The professionalism is at the very top end. Very clean rooms, view is amazing. Stayed here for 4 nights then moved closer to Phuket which was the biggest mistake ever. I recommend this hotel 10/10 #fantasricService #friendly staff. #VeryClean
