Katathani Phuket Beach Resort5.0 out of 5.0

The hotel was very good we liked that there were lots of different pools that you could choose from even an adult only pool. The complex is very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate at most of the restaurants, the Italian is nice but much more expensive then the others and perhaps not worth the extra cost. The sea was very rough on our visit it was warm but we spent our time round the pool. We visited the Spa which was ok but the Ladies in the massage area by the pool were fab! I would recommend using them for Thai massage, pedicure, manicure and foot scrubs and they cost a lot less than the Spa.
Stayed here for 5 nights with a group of about 25 for my sisters wedding. We stayed in an oceanfront, which I recommend because the other part of the resort is really far, basically it’s own resort. The resort has the most beautiful sunsets. So many different pools, with wait staff that are quick to bring your order. It’s on the beach, the water was super clear and warmer than the pools. It was close to town, you can walk to it (be careful at night, Thai drivers are crazy and there isn’t a defined sidewalk). Room service is the move. Extensive menu and fast! They don’t add additional fees to your order like most hotels. The market on site is actually quite reasonably priced, probably even a little cheaper than the Family Mart across the street. There are massage ladies that give hour long massages for 350 baht on the grass by the pools. Everyone in our group LOVED them and you charge it to your room. The salon is also great, blowouts for 500 baht!
We stayed 8 nights on a luxury escapes deal & enjoyed the hotel & facilities. Our room in the Bhuri Wing was a bit tired, but it was very large & clean. We had ground floor room with access to 2 pools, one out the front door & another out of the rear sliding door. The rooms dont seem to be insulated very well as you can hear every footstep above you. Upon check-in, we had an issue with our first room, the door alarm kept beeping (imagine a smoke alarm constantly going off) & it did take a while to get that sorted out and move us to another room. Not ideal when arriving close to midnight! In hindsight, I should have upgraded to the Thani wing prior to arrival, we did try to upgrade however it was full. Our deal included meals, so we did try most restaurants in the resort. Our favorite was the Fishermans Wharf & LaScala. We also enjoyed the Thai restaurant, though my mild & Thai mild are 2 different things! Lol Yes, there is a road seperating the 2 sides of the resort, but it isnt a major issue. They have security to assist. The resort is massive and they do have golf carts if you require to take you from one lobby to the other. All the restaurants are on the Thani side or beach side of the resort. All staff we came into contact with were very friendly, though some things got lost in translation. When I rang to get help with our bags on check out, they didnt come & we rang twice & still no-one came even though they said they were on the way. I went to reception to check out & advised that we have rang twice & my hubby is still waiting in the room & it was only then that they went to the room to assist. Not really sure what had gone wrong, but lucky we left extra time to get to the airport which is quite a long drive. There are several shops, restaurants, massage places along the road and Kata Beach is about 5 mins in a tuk-tuk (fixed price) You can walk however having knee problems that wasnt an option for me as it is quite hilly. There is a shuttle to Patong, leaves at 8.30 & returns at 11.00pm. Part of the beach was quite rough and has several rips, the red flags were out however people were still swimming. A tourist actually drowned when we were there, but swimming when the red flags are out is stupidity at its best! There are many sun lounges & umbrellas around the pools and we never had an issue getting a spot. The pools close quite early, 7pm I think which I dont understand, I suppose they have to clean them however it would be good if they did keep 1 or 2 open so you can enjoy a late night swim, perhaps there was one open on the opposite side to our room, but I dont think so. If we returned to Phuket, I would stay again, however would book the beach side next time.
Short version: If you find a great all-inclusive deal - e.g. on Luxury Escapes - take it, you'll get remarkable value, this place has great service and lovely facilities. Long version: I must stress that this 5 bubble review is based on my paying only 2000AUD for 8 nights, with meals and other inclusions, for two people - I think the fair shoulder-season price for this hotel is 250AUD/nt, so if you get the package I got you get your meals etc for free, but if you pay the 350-odd rack rate you will probably feel ripped off! The service here is generally excellent - perfect about 90% of the time - and the staff never make you feel bad for being on a discount package (probably because most people are!). The rooms spacious and clean but slightly dated and very badly designed (there is no way to close off the bathroom for privacy!). The resort facilities are generally very good - plenty of sun loungers, several clean pools, direct access to a lovely beach, several restaurants (some of them are very nice, but all of them are expensive for Thailand), a nice (but pricey) spa, and some free classes (but not many, in particular no art/craft, bring work-out gear because most are physical, the Thai Boxing class is particularly good). If you are using their pick-up service, be aware that the pickup is outside the airport, not at the gate as their email says it is! If you are on an all-inclusive package, be aware that drinks are not included and are expensive (ours came to over 100AUD, and we didn't even have much alcohol!).
Superb stay at katathani: the best place to stay in kata for sure: great personnel, great beaches, great pools, great restaurants, great massages everywhere : by the pool, by the beach , in the spa. And you can find all the facilities in the hotel and close by.
Attending a wedding a made it in to a short holiday break. Beach fantastic, weather fabulous. Staff are very friendly and will help you out ,always gave time to answer any questions. The resort and food was above expectations and I can recommend this resort to anybody. Don't think you will be dísapionted . A great family resort .safe and secure kids 😍 love it
We booked a junior suite (ocean front) and was upgraded to a grand suite (albeit with an oblique sea view and slightly dark due to the length of the room). We were pleasantly surprised upon check-in that - with a family fun package having been booked - we were given a hotel "passport" which included 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, a picnic basket, 2 drinks, fruit platter and ice-cream! As the hotel has a wide selection of wonderful restaurants, we consumed our lunches and dinners in the Thai restaurant, in the seafood restaurant (Fisherman's Wharf) and La Scala, the Italian fine-dining restaurant. Every meal was a culinary delight! Dining in La Scala was a surreal experience in that we didn't expect to have such good quality Italian food in such a remote part of the island, with live piano music. The hotel is superbly managed and almost every single employee was pleasantly polite, hard-working and set high standards for herself. The beach (Kata Noi) is comfortably secluded and not over-crowded, the seawater perfectly clear. I saw quite a few fish swimming beside me! This is one resort I will return to again and again.
This is a fantastic resort right on the beech and not far from pubs and restaurants. Very clean, food nice and overlooks onto there private beach. Rooms are big, clean and comfy. Would highly recommend.
A fantastic location the whole hotel staff comfort food cleaniness remarkable, you will not be disappointed fantastic place planning a wedding the staff are very accommodating totally professional & work very hard to accommodate to your every need. We will be going back.
We have just returned from 6 nights at the Katahani. We can't speak highly enough of this resort. We had booked into a junior beach front suite in the Thani wing. However upon arrival we were given an up-grade to the Grand suite on the second floor. Our room was amazing, with lots of space, gorgeous views and a super comfortable bed. The beach in front of the resort is beautiful and quite. The water was clear and warm and perfect for swimming and relaxing in. The wonderful staff work tirelessly day and night to ensure the all the facilities are in top order. Aside from the extensive breakfast buffet, we ate most of our meals outside of the resort. We can recommend the Siam Smile (directly across from the resort) in Kata Noi. And Two Chefs in Kata. Both restaurants offer delicious and affordable food and 2 Chefs also provides fantastic live music. If you are wanting a child free experience, this may not be the resort for you. The Katahani caters well for children and there were many families staying while we were there. In saying that, we went without our kids and had a fantastic time. Everybody is looked after. Thanks so much Katahani for an incredibly relaxing and beautiful holiday. I hope we may be lucky enough to visit you again....
