Recent guest reviews

Was recommended by a friend and was not disappointed. Fabulous service, clean resort and rooms, food great, pools magnificent. Everything was lovely. Would definitely go back there. Book the junior suites or ocean rooms.

Unfortunately I choosed this hotel because I was on that beach 15 years ago when things were different, including my age and my expectations. The beach is nice but public. The hotel is an old structure with rooms to be reneved. Never take a room on the first floor, they are dirty, humid and stinky (humidity/dirt). Food is ok for people that don't know the real Thai food, the Italian restaurant it's ok, the main restaurant depends of the night. Breakfast it's good. Swimming pools and kids club are good. Personnel, a part Mr. Riccardo, it is not so polite.

One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in in Phuket. Friendly staff, great rooms. We stayed in a Grand Deluxe (Buri wing) with two adults and two kids 8 & 10 yrs. Plenty of space Great amenities with games room, good gym and many pools. Very close to one of Phukets best beaches.

We spent 16 days at Katathani in December 2017. It was first time for us in Thailand. Resort is huge, beautiful, and the grounds are very well maintained. There are lots of restaurants within the resort with good and varied food, but it is worth also eating outside the resort if you like thai food. Highly recommend the resort. I take this opportunity to thank all the resort employees and management for making us feel so good during our vacation. For sure we'll return to the resort in the near future.

Spent 8 days at Katathani with my wife and 11yo son just before christmas. First time in Phuket and selected resort from a map and a quick review of Tripadvisor reviews. Excellent choice and planning to revisit again soon. Away from the hustle and bustle of more 'popular' spots with no through road. This gives the resort quite a private feel about it and makes it feel very safe for kids to be 'off-leash'. Kids facilities were good with two well equipped rec rooms (1 in each wing), water play area, pools, boules court and pools everywhere. Whilst the resort has four restaurants there are some great local eateries just out from the resort and heaps more over the hill at Kata Beach. The Beach is excellent for the area whilst it does not belong to the resort and is a public beach the majority of people at the beach are either from the Shore to the south or from a variety of private villas to the north. No humbug from sellers etc unlike some of the other places. Staff were superb and looked after our every need with no fuss and a smile. Recommend this hotel to families and couples who are either keen to relax and do nothing or those who want to get out and about but want something quiet and comfortable to come home to.

This is a really nice hotel with a pristine beach and super friendly staff. The rooms and amenities are really nice and the food is good too. There aren’t many five store resorts anywhere with direct access to a beach like this. We will be back. One word of caution - there are three levels here. The shore is ultra luxe villas. Then there are two hotel wings - Burj and Thani. The Thani wing is a gorgeous five star quality resort. The Burj wing has all the same access but the rooms and location are nearby but a clear step down. The feel of everything is different. Rooms are shabby and it feels more like a condominium with a pool separated from the beach by a road. Great for families or other travelers on a budget but beware of mismatched expectations. Book a junior suite in the Thani wing if looking for a true 5 star experience. If you are looking for something similar but willing to sacrifice a bit of quality for cost, consider the Burj wing. Make sure you know in advance which you want. That said - we loved our time here and will be back.

We were a large family of 8, and from the start when making our reservation were received great professional service. We stayed in the Family Suite and a Junior Suite in the Thani side, the rooms were close to each other as we requested and they were very comfortable. Good linen and good furnishings. The family suite is an absolute delight, sleeps six in three bedrooms with 2 big ensuite bathrooms (one with outdoor shower), a dining and lounge area with balcony. My children loved their "Pirate Bed" ship. There is only 1 Family Suite, so book early. Breakfast at Chom Talay was incredible, so many many options - all fresh. A Feast for Kings. Cocktails and Snacks around the pools from any of the many beach bars is great. "Coconut Connection" is really yummy !! Service throughout the resort is friendly and efficient, being a big family travelling together we had no complaints. The beach is Amazing !! Just look at our pictures. Private, clean, quieter beach with clear blue water. Kata Noi beach is really special. The Aqua Play at the Bhuri side of the resort is a wonderful treat for the children. It is very safe and has a variety of apparatus to enjoy. I loved the soft sponge floor covering throughout all the pools in the Aqua Play area. Be sure to visit the Big Buddha while staying on Katathani, it is close by. There are shops, 7/11, restaurants etc on the street behind the resort for useful requirements.

Clean great amenities great location . I will return to this location and would highly recommend this for families or couples. Many shops and fun things to do nearby. Local restaurants are fun and have wonderful service and we found the locals to be extremely friendly. Loved the culture too.

I could not fault this resort. The staff were very happy and helpful, the rooms were huge and extremely clean and the location on the beach had to die for views. Although it is a slightly more expensive resort to stay in, it is definitely worth it.

Just returned from our first Phuket holiday travelling with our teenage daughter. The Katathani Resort is in a great location. The pool area links directly to beach. Breakfast buffet is ample and staff very courteous and accommodating. We booked a junior suite. The ocean view was postcard. Our room was clean and resort grounds maintained regularly. Many restaurants to choose from on-site but can also take a short walk to others.
