Katathani Phuket Beach Resort5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Resort accommodation and amenities were very good. The recommended improvement is for the hotel staff in particular front desk staff could be improved specially in demeanor and English communication.
This resort is in a terrible state and 2 star perhaps at best. All facilities including restaurant and spa services are mediocre and not at all worth the prices being charged. The only good part is the location on the beach. Pick another resort on the beach if that's your criteria like it was for us - avoid this place
The logistics are a bit complicated. 1-1.5 hour drive from the airport and if you arrive before 2 pm be prepared to be sitting at the lobby. They definitely won't have your room ready by 2 or 3 pm. Thais are extremely friendly especially towards children; some of the staff seems stressed perhaps overworked at the reception as they are not your typical smiling Thai. The beach is outstanding but the ocean is not easy....quite a bit of under toe and rip currents, so apt for strong swimmers. The hotel could do a better job at hiring people to collect trash along the beach early in the morning. The trash is mostly generated by ships... Restaurants are good, the breakfast has a good variety. The bar and poolside service is very good. Pools in good condition, gym and kids playing rooms are very convenient..
We had a wonderful stay at the Katathani resort. We definitely felt disconnected from the world which was exactly what we wanted. There are good restaurants on site that are convenient and less expensive more authentic options across the street from the resort. We also were able to walk offsite for massages as well. It truly was the best of both worlds (resort living vs local affordability). The staff were great and everything was very clean and well kept. Thank you Katathani for a wonderful vacation!
I was looking forward to staying at a beachfront resort while in Phuket. Katathani seemed like the place to go. It has its own beach, and all the amenities. I booked a deluxe room at the Bhuri wing. The room description said that there was a balcony with a pool and sea view. When I arrived at my room, it was fairly small, and the balcony faced into a foot massage parlor and a wall. I called the front desk and let them know this room was not living up to my expectations. They said the only sea views were at the Thani wing. They told me they'd change my room. They took me to another room, still at the Bhuri wing, and the balcony had a view of the pool and sea! Just like I originally expected! Thank you! The room amenities were very basic. My friend was planning on staying there also, but they told him that the entire resort was booked up. That was odd, I had just booked online 20 minutes before we got there. They said the Thani wing had rooms left, but he was quoted 5 x the price I saw online. That was kind of a bummer, it broke up our visit. The resort is big. I was looking forward to a fitness room and game room, but they were on the complete other side of the resort and I never got over there. I did get to enjoy the pool closest my room. It was open until 8 pm. The wifi was very spotty, did not work inside the room, it was best near the pool. The beach is nice. You can parasail or rent jet skis. I snorkeled a little bit, didn't see much, but was enjoyable. Unfortunately, I only stayed at the resort one night. I think that if I would've stayed longer, I may have had a better experience. Overall, I was underwhelmed and somewhat disappointed with my stay here.
I have booked months in advanced for an ocean view and when I got there they said they are overbooked and if I can stay in their deluxe room and offered me room service a glass of wine and free wifi. Realizing I had to go to a different building and it isn't ocean view I told them I changed my mind and magically a room was available for me ...
