Katathani Phuket Beach Resort

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Katathani hotel is good for family with small children. The location, the garden, and the beach are really nice. The rooms self-need to be renovated. The Breakfast is good. If you are looking for excursions - please avoid TUI. They are too expensive for what they give. You can find much better outside and don't forget usually in Thailand the price difference between group and Private is really minimal.

Spent 12 nights here. We had interconnecting rooms with our teenagers in the Thani wing (beachside), which were perfect. Rooms cleaned, I like that they only change towels when you leave them in the bath. Breakfast good, we ate outside the hotel for our other meals. Cocktails at sundown are a must. Snorkelling was beautiful, you can’t believe what’s down there. On the rocks beach restaurant is perfect at lunchtime too. Be very careful when booking elephant trips do not use island safari tour, all the animals are badly treated. A fantastic relaxing trip at the katathani, quality time with my family

This was my 7th stay which speaks volumes itself. Not disappointed we had 2 amazing weeks here. There is nothing the staff won't do for you, friendly smiles at every turn. The food was fantastic at breakfast every morning and we ate out at local restaurants every night which are all within walking distance of the hotel. The location is ideal, not as busy as Kata and the beach is amazing. Suffice to say I'll be back!

We loved our 9 nights here. We stayed in a Grand Deluxe room in the Bhuri wing overlooking the pool. Room was lovely, breakfast delicious and the pools amazing. The beach was stunning and great snorkelling in the morning. Children age 7 and 10 had a great time. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We didn’t eat at the hotel other than breakfast as plenty of restaurants in Kata Noi and easy to pop into Kata in the evening for a bit more choice. Only downside was the return airport taxi option. Hotel only offers a cab for B1700. A bit steep. I booked online with Phuket airport taxi service in the end for a much lower price and they were excellent. All in all though a fantastic trip!!

We are a family of 4 (children aged 10 and 7) and we have just enjoyed a fantastic holiday, 13 nights at Katathani. We were in a Grand Deluxe room in the Bhuri wing - it was new and clean. Hardly any mosquitoes, but we did take DEET. Service was excellent, breakfast ample and beautiful location. The beach itself is beautiful, very clean and wonderful and safe for swimming. Great snorkelling on the south side. Loved the On The Rocks Beach cafe on the south side. Food and drink is quite pricey but tended to eat in the restaurants outside the resport in Kata Noi - about 6-7 and all are very decent - just like you would find in Kata or Karon. Kata Noi is a lovely little enclave and feels very private. It is a big hotel and busy but we had a great time. Our son enjoyed the tweens games room. Well donw to all at Katathani. A beautiful corner of the world. And finally, thank you Thailand for the best weather in the world!

Cannot rate this resort highly enough. We were so impressed with this resort as a family holiday destination. We stayed 12 nights in the newer more family oriented area. Breakfast was definitely a highlight. Right on the beach. Kids (9 and 5) loved the pools and activities. Nice and quiet even though the resort must have been quite full. over all an excellent holiday in beautiful Thailand. We will be back to this resort again. 😎😀🌴☀️

We had a nice stay here, the beach is lovely and the pools are all warm. The staff were friendly (especially the men by the roads). But we could hear EVERYTHING going on outside, I would expect more privacy from such a fancy place. We woke up to children screaming and fell asleep to the sound of suitcases roaming around. Each time we came to our room, there was a minimum of 3 mosquitos hiding in our shower. At one point, there was about 13 in the room altogether. Needless to say, even with mosquito spray, we got eaten alive. We didn’t have this problem in other places we stayed at. Not sure there’s much that can be done about this, but bring DEET with you if you’re going to stay here and make sure to put on before you go to sleep and as soon as you wake up! The resort facilities are lovely, the breakfast place has a beautiful view. We were lucky to go at 7am one morning and it was just beautiful. Gets busier after that obviously. We found the breakfast to be okay, as expected of a hotel breakfast. The location of the resort is really nice too - lots of little places to eat and if you walk a bit further up the road you can get to the main part of Kata too. I think there may be more benefit to staying here as a family rather than a couple.

We stayed as a family of 4, 2 kids aged 7 and 9 in a grand suite in the Thani wing. The beach was lovely as were the facilities of the resort. The room was clean, except there was a significant amount of mound in the silicone in the bathroom. Also you couldn’t leave the doors open to the outside as there were a lot of mosquitos. Breakfast had a good assortment with slight variations each day. The biggest negative for us was the staff. They were polite, just, if they thought they were getting a tip. However you can’t charge a 10% service charge and then expect tips on top. When delivering the bags to the room the porters stood and waited until we tipped them. When a workman had to fix the drain in our bathroom he stood for an exceptionally long period of time on completion, I’m not sure if he expected a tip too. At different times there was music being played at the various pool bars, there was a tip jar for them too, at a 5 star resort the music should be supplied and paid for by the resort. If walking along a walkway the staff expected you to stop and wait for them and certainly did not acknowledge you or say thank you. The staff were not sincere. The most pleasant staff were the housekeeping staff and the men who waited for you to cross the road at the Bhuri Wing who clicked their heels. I think the staff need to remember why they all have a job is because of the guests who are staying at the resort. This really took away from our experience significantly and has led us to not wanting to return again due to this lack of customer service.

If I was here with a preparation that I would be entitled to so so 4 Star hotel service as I have to believe Phuket has already become a very commercial tourist paradise and so as the 5 star hotel here like Karathani, I would give 4 stars for this review. However, I wasn’t. Next time to PHK, will still go for hotel running by sizable hotel management company. Breakfast is a bit disappointed due to the food quality, selection and a lot of mosquitos. But the facilities here are awesome especially the beach and well equipped leisure and entertainment facilities.

We just had our wedding here. 5 stars all around. The staff was very friendly and on point with every detail. Our wedding coordinators were very professional and made everything really easy to follow. We stayed there for 5 nights as well and the facilities are beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you to the Katathani staff that made our wedding and stay so memorable!
