"worth every penny!"
My husband and I spent our honeymoon here after doing a lot of research into hotels in the area. Initially, we thought we'd spend a couple of nights in a cheaper hotel but in the end we decided to treat ourselves to the full stay at The Shore. It was the best decision we made. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here, every time we returned to our room there was another surprise waiting for us - it was an absolute delight. It is 100% worth the extra cost to stay in this amazing place if you are able to. Also, it's definitely worth getting a sea view room.
"THE SHORE IS ALL YOU HAVE READ ABOUT"
The Shore has many advantages and is a great option, particularly if combined with a stay in a more northern resort such as Laguna or Kamala. In the south Kata and Karon are less a people market like Patong and Kata Noi has a small city of its own - as part of the huge Katathani hotel site with 6 restaurants, massive bar options. The Shore is at the end of the beach, so it remains private - the villas are spacious, well equipped, the private pools are large. All overlook the beach. No terrace but the general pool by the beach has large sunbaking options on the terrace and in the grass areas. There are plenty of sun lounges. Staff are exceptional, Manage Sven and Assistant Bou are caring and went to great lengths to satisfy. Great breakfast buffet on the terrace restaurant overlooking the pool and the beach; the restaurants in the Katathani property are terrific - including Royal Thai, fresh Seafood, Italian ....and more. Outside the "resort" is a small local shopping street - right there at the entrance. If you require two rooms - the large split level two bedroom villa is massive - with a very large living room and larger wrap around corner pool. The Kata area is the more upmarket coastal area with beautiful sand, and a surf. So The Shore is a private Pool Villas resort, a beach resort, and a larger hotel complex adjoining: it has the lot.
"First Class Facility"
The Shore is a great resort. The service is impeccable and they really know how to make sure you have a great time. As a guest of the shore you have access to all of the broader Katathani resort giving you the option to be in a romantic, more secluded section while also giving you the option to a ton of different restaurants/pools. We also did the in-room dining for both breakfast and dinner and it really is beyond compare.
The Shore is a great resort. The rooms are huge (our suite was 260 square meters), the staff is extremely helpful and the facilities are wonderful. Our favorite was the crystal clear infinity swimming pool literally right next the the beach and the beach it self. Just to the left of the resort on the beach, there is an excellent spot to do snorkeling. The only thing I wish they had is a watersports center. They are on a wonderful beach but no snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, wind surfs or any other equipment is provided. The beach experience could be made much better with some facilities/equipment from the resort.
"Exceptional resort in a lovely location"
The team do an exceptional job from the moment you arrive to make you feel welcome and valued. The rooms are stunningly decorated, exceptionally clean and well maintained. We were staying over Christmas and the team sang carols and did a special gala dinner which was great. Sven (the manager) personally talked to all the guests over dinner which I don't think I've ever witnessed before in a resort - these touches make a real difference. The location is great, right on beach and near shops/restaurants etc.
