Lovely resort. Beautiful swimming pools which are well spaced out to avoid over growing. The beach is lovely although the sea was very choppy when we visited. This resort is ideal for those who want to relax. The rooms are well laid out. Staff are very friendly. Only down side every time you exit the lobby you are asked if you want a taxi. There are a few small shops, restaurants and ATM across the road from the resort. A very steep hill lies between the resort and Kata town a tuk tuk to Kata cost 200Bhts. We booked a trip threw the hotel to go to Phuket town. When we were dropped off we were told we were near none of the sights and it would cost an other 100 Bht to be taken round the sights. We were disappointed by this. There is a large selection of foods for breakfast.
The staff and the management absolutely incompetent. Called to the hotel to get to know about the day pass, as I was staying just next door. First, no one picked up the phone, after the third try a lady answered, not saying her name and replied to my question a short "no".. But the day before i was at the reception and they told me that for the whole family it was 5000, so i wanted to re-check. Then she passed the call to another person and he informed me it was 5000 per ONE person! When i asked what was included - he said - " only the beach, mam". For 5000 THB per one person they are offering the beach that is actually a public zone'! So, for the family of 6 people they expect me to pay 30,000 THB''' In other hotels, for the day pass you get access to all the facilities, including lunch as well! And the most embarrassing thing - how can they sell day pass with 5000THB, if theIr room rate is less'! A night in the hotel is cheaper than the day pass! Ridiculous property rules, staff having no product knowledge and awful attitude. Never ever i will book anything here with this kind of "welcoming" service.
"Perfect location, pristine beach, excellent hotel"
Katathani Beach Resort is really to be commended for running an excellent hotel! They try very hard to have a thoughtful & sensitive environmental policy throughout the hotel. What impressed us most was the absolutely pristine beach - kept meticulously clean by the hotel staff, not a piece of rubbish on the beach & beautiful clean, clear water. This contrasts markedly with Kata main beach just over the headland which was quite dirty with a lot of rubbish & the sea much less clean (we went during monsoon season). We loved the beach at Kata Noi (hotel beach) & had chosen to go there for the surf (we visited in October). The sea was rough but we swam every day & the hotel lifeguards were excellent, very attentive & professional & we felt very safe. Our children loved the waves! The hotel itself is excellent, very spacious with fantastic facilities. Our children loved exploring all the different swimming pools, playing Pétanque & tennis. Having massage ladies in the hotel gardens is a lovely idea (although they could be a bit more flexible in offering shorter sessions for children). We stayed in a junior suite in Thani wing with a fantastic view straight out across the pool to the sea, I would definitely recommend staying in Thani wing for great views & proximity to all restaurants. Our room was fine - a bit cramped for 4 people & it did smell a bit musty when we arrived, but it was the rainy season. The housekeeping staff were wonderful, very kind & attentive. The breakfasts were good with lots of choice. We ate other meals both inside & outside hotel (there is a stunning restaurant up on the headland). Food was fine in hotel, a bit pricey. The bars were great & the live music was a really nice touch (although the Andaman Big Band at the Wed night buffet was way, way too loud, you couldn't have a conversation...). Overall we loved this hotel & would highly recommend it mainly for the perfect location, beautiful beach & very friendly staff.
"Superb resort near Phuket’s Kata beach"
Insightsuite stayed here for two nights during full moon day called Sharad Purnima or Kojagiri just two weeks before Diwali. This is a high end resort about one hour drive from Phuket airport. The place has several swimming pools, event hall by the sea where they serve breakfast in the morning. The rooms are with balcony & the main building has 3 floors. If you are on top floor you can get the glimpse of sea. The rooms are well decorated with adequate amenities for beach activities like slippers, beach towels, an umbrella (to be used during rainy season etc.). There is a 7 eleven convenience store just outside the hotel & several restaurants which serve local & western cuisine. For activities you can book hotel transport to go for either night market of town center or a departmental store. Overlooking from the hill is a high end villa for rent but it is not allowed if you have kids with you. View of the sea from that place must be amazing for a +10K Bath tariff per night. The breakfast spread is pretty decent & no congestion was observed. We noticed that hotel staffs were mourning & almost everyone was keeping a low profile during the stay.
Had a fantastic time. Excellent reset. Room was very clean and well equipped. Only complaint was our room was a little smelly from the a/c. Our son's room next door did not have the same problem. We had a pool view room in the Buri wing which was lovely but a bit of a walk to the restaurants although nice and close to Seacret for breakfast and lunch and the beach as well as a second pool and games room and gym. A massive resort with many meal options an pools to choose from. The staff were wonderful with early check in and late checkout. We were very fortunate here. A little way out of the major tourist areas if you were wanting to visit those regularly then the taxi fairs were set in price (no fault of the resort) but there were shops ( 7 eleven, pharmacy, massage, retuarants, currency exchange etc) and just outside the door and Kata a short walk. Could not fault the resort for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful beach front location. A little too comfortable as we had to force ourselves to actually go sightseeing. Thank you Katathani - we will definitely be back.
