We spent 10 nights at the Shore in January as part of our honeymoon in Thailand and it absolutely lived up to its billing as a relaxing luxury retreat. Highlights include the villa with its stunning view of beach and sea, private infinity pool and v. comfortable bed. Service was excellent throughout with all staff we encountered very polite, courteous and a credit to the resort. Special mention to Somyot for saving my wife's wedding ring after it fell through the floorboards! Pool/bar area was great with easy access to beach below, which was never too busy while we were there. Dining options good in local area - both within the Katathani resort and further afield - Channada, the Boathouse and the After Beach Bar were favourites. Definitely ask for the Romantic Dinner at the Shore's Harbour restaurant. Worth noting that this is not a busy late night resort so if you're after night life you'll have to head north. Only obvious drawback for us was the lack of sun on the pool and villa sunbeds - a problem presumably shared by all since they are north facing. Not a massive issue for us as we were happy to go down to the main pool for sunbathing but this should be considered if you're after sunbathing in your villa. Other thing we'd note is the traffic getting anywhere - up to 90mins to Phuket airport and similar to the quay for daytrips to Phi Phi etc. - makes for a very long day! Nevertheless for a relaxing high quality high comfort stay this is right up there with the best we have ever visited.
One of the loveliest places we have ever stayed in. The views are breathtaking, the pools are great. The staff simply cannot do enough for you. We were treated like royalty. We were left little gifts in our room and fresh flowers on arrival, it is quiet and relaxed, definitely not for the party animals, but a great place to forget about the world and its troubles.
"I'd give more stars if possible! It's HEAVEN!"
Located at Kata Noi beach this hotel is a piece of heaven. Calm environment. Beautiful beach in front of it. Nice food. We knew this place was gonna be great when right after our booking we received a questionnaire asking what kind of flowers we wanted in the room, what kind of fruits we would like to be welcomed with, what kind of pillows etc. I spent one week the with my husband in one of their ocean view suites. When I arrived in the room I lost my breath. THE VIEW IS STUNNING! We almost didn't leave the hotel (we ate a couple of times in surrounding restaurants) you have everything you need at The Shore. There's happy hour when drinks are half priced, and afternoon tea. During the morning they offer mixed fruits juices that are always delicious. If you want to have breakfast in your room, there is no extra charge. The pools are great, the bed super comfy, the staff is incredible, everyone is so nice!!! We had a chance to meet the manager, Sven. Such a nice guy, talked to all the guests, asked how we felt about the hotel during a cocktail party organized there. Lots if times we were given little gifts in the room, coconut water, flowers, new decoration (the elephant made out of towels was my favorite). The staff really goes out of their way to make you happy. I have a huge floater that I wanted to use and they inflated it for me in no time! Plus, some of the staff even memorize your name! We visted the spa one time and it was nice. The amenities (spa, library and gym) are small, but very well maintained. You also the choice to go to the hotel next door The Kathatani for more options of restaurant and a bigger gym. The rooms are located up a hill, if you don't want to walk you can call for a buggy car and they pick you up at any part of the hotel in no time. However is really ok to go down to the lobby and to the restaurant. The problem is to go back, there are lots of stairs and it can be quite a work out. My suggestion for improvement: I wish there was more seafood options at the restaurant. This was the best hotel I've ever been! I was actually sad to go back home! Attention: this hotel is calm. There are no clubs, parties nor bars around it. Come here if you really want to rest and spend time with your significant other. I assure that you will have a wonderful experience. I already want to go back. Suggestion: book an airport transfer. Phuket airport is very chaotic.
"Make sure to request a room with actual sun"
Upon arrival I asked for a room where the outside gets sun for my seaview villa (when originally booking I assumed they all would as it is a seaview). However when being shown my room after checkin it was clean my room would never have any sun exposure in the pool or outdoor area. I asked if I could switch rooms as the whole point of paying for a seaview for us is to be able to sit outside in the sun during the day put was told that was not possible as there were no other rooms and that the best they could do was show me a room the next day that may get some sun very late in the day. Kind of ruined the point of the room we chose. I am currently writing this as I am about to head downstairs for some sun. I am still giving the hotel an average score as the hotel is beautiful and we have really enjoyed the downstairs pool area and beach just would have paid for a premium we really are not using if I knew it would never get sun. If you are like us and looking for a private plunge pool and outdoor area for some sun you should probably think of booking elsewhere. Other than that the facilities are very nice and service is very good.
Its hard to put words to paper when it comes to all the services they provide, from the friendly smiles to the mouth watering delicacies, the amazing drinks to the warmly staff this place will really leave an impression on your heart. we would love to thank Mr Smart, Alex, Jai, Woodie and the lovely ladies Minnie, Melanie and Jessie for all you have done for us to make this trip one to remember. To all the staff here at The Shore you have out done yourselves in making this trip one we will always cherish with the fondest memoires. Thanks again Mr Shaun and Ms Holly
