of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We have stayed at Katathani and loved it. But too pricey for time of year we want to travel. Got a good deal for mom tris villa royale. Staying in the beach wing. Amazing view. Huge room with lounge area. Big balcony (with sea view). Little stroll down to beautiful katanoi beach. Good breakfast again with view. Love Thailand and love mom tris .
our room was very nice and comfortable. bathroom was big with good amenities and a lovely bath tub! straight out of the room we could walk a few stairs down to the beach. we had a lovely sea view! breakfast was great with lots of variety too! drinks wer good in the bar every evening!!
Mom Tri's Kitchen serves some fantastic food, would happily have eaten there every night. Everything about the place was wonderful, an idyllic place for couples, spoilt for me by children of too young an age, a good idea for Villa Royale to consider an age restriction.
"The Stairmaster hotel"
I fondly refer to this property as the stairmaster hotel. We were in the Ocean Wing which meant we walked ALOT to get anywhere up and down lots of stairs. That being said the service was outstanding. All the little nooks and crannies on this property are pretty, beautifully landscaped and take advantage of gorgeous views. Our couples Thai massage was GREAT. The beach was crowded (and down alot of stairs) and thier were lots of jelly fish, but it was beautiful to look at. The food at the restaurant was average but the service and views were great. Don't come here if you have mobility problems. But is you like the stairmaster, this is the hotel for you!
"What an absolutely wonderful location!!!!"
Before booking I always do quite a bit of research, not only about the hotel but the location also. This for us was absolutely perfect as the hotel is a quiet oasis of calm located no more than 5 minutes or so from the hustle and bustle. There is a steep hill but it is a good bit of exercise!!.......now where do I start with this wonderful place......The property "clings" to the headland between 2 beaches - Kata Yai and Kata Noi. These 2 beaches are very different. Kata Yai is bigger and much, much busier and Kata Noi is smaller.....and sublime. This is one of the nicest beaches that I have ever visited and it can be seen from most parts of the hotel which is a bonus. It is a small hotel...not a big sprawling one....it is intimate...classy.....We stayed in the Ocean Wing which is a 4/5 minute walk from the main part of the hotel. Our suite was the "Malbec" (they are all names after wines)....this is the best one for the view out of the ones in this side of the hotel....I guess we were lucky. Imagine waking up every morning, pulling up the blinds to the wonderful view of the ocean. One of the great things about the hotel is that, even when it's busy, the place never feels crowded. At times we felt like we were the only ones there!.......The Ocean wing comprises 6 suites (I think)......and they have their own pool. We regularly were the only ones using it.....plus there is an incredible view from here too!!.....in fact, from virtually everywhere in the hotel you have this incredible view....it really is gorgeous. Our room was regularly cleaned to a good standard and have no complaints at all in this regard. A few of the fittings are showing some signs of wear so perhaps they should look at these. There is a wonderful bar with a piano.....played rather beautifully on most evenings....a huge wine cellar....the largest in Phuket I understand and an award winning restaurant, which naturally we tried.....it was lovely. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Special mention must be made to Ton.....who looked after us so incredibly well - thank you...and to Aon who works in the bar & restaurant - what a nice guy!!......The hotel has direct access down some steps to Kata Noi beach......go!!...it's gorgeous. Due to the position and nature of the location, there are quite a lot of steps so if you aren't nimble on your feet you may struggle.
