Amazing resort! Literally do not need to leave during your stay if you didn't want to, view from our room looked upon the pools and the ocean, was stunning! Wifi kept dropping out and was an extra cost but was an overall lovely place to stay at. We had my sisters wedding at the resort and they were all just so hospitable and couldn't do enough. Stunning location.Comment of D. Ebony , Australia the 2016-12-30
"Immense fun filled Short Get Away with kids!"
It was a short 3 days 2 nights stay with our lovely 2 year old twins~ nice clean beach indeed, not too sure why there were reviews posted that the beach is dirty~ We stayed at grand delux room facing the pool which can accommodate 2 adults and 2 toddlers. There are playground, play gym and the Kids’ water park that the twins enjoyed the most! Breakfast spread is decent though not much variety. You can always walk up further along the street to try the authentic Thai food. Convenience stores like 7-11 is nearby, further up along the road, some lomoted shopping cAn be found. The Resort is far out from the airport though which is about 1 h 30 min ride hence , travelling to Phuket Town and Patong will take about 30 min, shuttle bus is available to these 2 places, 150baht per person but timing is not flexible. Private hire taxis are easily available though at a higher premium of course. On one of the nights, I caught a millipede crawling on one of the twins’ pillow though, after releasing it to the nature, got a bit paranoid and started spraying the room with deet free insect repellant ;p Conclusion, I will return to the Resort,room is decent, bed is comfy but an updated decor / design will definitely be a 5 Star look it Resort ^^v
"Not really a 5-star"
Group of 10 stayed here for mums 60th birthday. It should be noted that the resort is massive and disjointed, it doesn’t have the feel of a resort that has a central pool or lobby. The resort is secluded and that allows for a large stretch of private beach access but also means no nightlife nearby and beyond 3 closeby restaurants you have to take a tuk-tuk anywhere. Overall stay was good but there’s a lot of pros and cons. Pros - Facilities: amazing choice of facilities such as 6 pools, beautiful beach, massages, doctors clinic etc. Service: The majority of the daily staff are very pleasant. Cons - Rooms: Rooms are dated and totally mispriced/described.... we paid extra for an ocean view junior suite for the birthday girl, only to discover that it was smaller than all our regular rooms and even more dated; really disappointing. Service: Checking in didn’t leave the greatest first impression; there wasn’t much welcome or warmth in the way of 5-star service. Little things like making a dinner reservation or calling the massage person over to our side of the pool were lost on the staff and it’s just not what 5-star service feels like. Facilities: The two breakfast places served similar food but annoyingly didn’t even have the same selection of fruits for example. All the pool bars also have different menus and if you want to be in a different pool but have food or drink that you enjoyed elsewhere it’s not possible... seemed a bit annoying. WiFi WiFi isn’t free in rooms and drops every few minutes and needs constant reconnecting... not a deal breaker but also not something a 5* hotel should have issues with! Food: The food at breakfast was averag and poolside was good. Satay, pad Thai and pizzas were lovely. Cocktails were low quality. Have stayed in many resorts in Thailand and this is 4-star at best.
Katathani resort nestled away on Kata beach gives a very private feel, the beach though exposed to the andaman sea is situated in a cove which is pretty picturesque , grew range of restaurants on site with a large variety to choose from, lots of activities for our little people as well , quite a good range of restaurants and massage Parlour’s in the vicinity as well, quite a few excursions available at the hotel by tour operators , the big Buddha is a trip not to be missed and so too the Siam niramit which was a great evening out , believe Fantasea was also worth a visit but we did not make it.
"DO NOT VISIT HERE!!! Filthy beaches, old rooms and dodgy air conditioning... "
This was a nightmare! Staff were miserable, rooms needed a massive overhaul, got sick from the dodgy aircon and the rubbish on the beaches in front of Resort was DISGUSTING. Don’t stay here. Awful....
"Perfect relaxing family holiday - third visit to this wonderful resort"
Our family (with older teenage children) loved our stay at Katathani. Especially love the location away from busier areas of Phuket and the beachfront hotel having it's own beach.Staff friendly, rooms clean, and food/room service at resort restaurants is excellent! Fantastic that you can have massages/manicures by the pool and charge back to room. Enough activities to keep all age groups happy but more of a relaxing family holiday atmosphere.
