The resort was right on the beach, however because of the time of year, you couldn't swim in the ocean & it didn't even look nice. Lots of debris washed onto beach, we didn't even walk on it! Some rooms going through major renovation & I think they probably needed it. We were in a new beach view unit & this was very nice. Hotel keeps grounds absolutely […] spotless but could do more to clean up the beach, especially at entrance/exit points from hotel to beach. All the pools were lovely and the drink & food service from the bars good. Food in restaurant was okay but nothing outstanding, never very hot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Katathani Beach Resort"
This hotel is fantastic - we are a family of four and our kids are quite young. The hotel is right on the beach, it is a beautiful small beach, although the sea can get a bit rough, they put flags up to warn you of this. The hotel itself has many different restaurants and bars, with different cuisines, we tried most of them, and they were all great. […] The breakfast was also fantastic. The staff are very helpful, friendly and all of them seem to love kids. The hotel got wind that it was my birthday, and when we returned to our room, there was a birthday cake and candles waiting! There are several different swimming pools and a kids club, which came in handy on our one rainy day. They have nice touches like frog racing one evening and a BBQ night. We booked a junior suite room, for all 4 of us to sleep in, it was nice, but not what I would describe as a suite, more of a larger room with a balcony. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to return there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Service start to finish."
Really a nice value. We stayed in a Grand Suite in the Tahani wing and it was wonderful. Beach was great although since it's the rainy season it was a bit dangerous for swimming (red flag was out).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just returned from a 13 night stay and can sum it up as a perfect paradise. The location is perfect for couples, families, etc and the genuinely friendly staff can't do enough to help. Near to other key locations in Phuket, I highly recommend it if you are looking to chill out, relax and soak up the sun whilst being near enough for a short ride to […] Kata, Karen beach, Phuket and many other locations for swimming, diving, exploring & experiencing this stunning island. The resort itself has wonderful spacial grounds and a HUGE pristine beach. There are also 6 pools varying in size. Based around the resort are useful local facilities- convenience stores, restaurants, laundry, tailors, etc Loved it and recommend without hesitation! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
From the moment you check in you are treated with respect the staff are very helpful, food is great location superb right on the beach , the pools are large with 4 to choose from also 3 pool side bars. Unfortunately there is no shopping at kata noi only taliors, you have to get a tuk tuk over the hill to Karon or Kata. It's the seclusion of the Katahani […] that makes it so great Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Andrew and Emmas holiday."
Excellent resort in a fantastic location. A less busy area of Phuket. Adjacent beach not crowded, wonderfully clear and clean water, no rubbish in sight, pools all well kept. All staff very friendly, helpfull and accommodating. Buffet breakfast and all meals fresh and well prepared. Hotel room was extremely clean, house cleaning attended daily, very […] adequate airconditioning and room facilities. Our room was a few steps from the pool. Resort grounds immaculately maintained and very neat. Overall a very comfortable 5 night stay. Would stay at the same resort anytime, and recommend staying there to anyone. Well done to all the great staff for making us feel welcome! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic and faultless service"
The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast service was exceptional and we were very well looked after with all of our enquiries, including hiring a car. My only comment would be that the rates are quite expensive, but it seems like most of Phuket is over-priced?Genuine Expedia guest review
"Make sure your booking is at the Thani Wing....!"
We did enjoy our time in Phuket and were generally happy with the service and the resort. However, there was one thing that really spoiled the holiday. There were two main reasons for us to pick up Katathani. First, recommendation and second we wanted to be spending our family holiday in the convenience and safety of a nice resort with all the amenities […] and right on the beach. Only when we arrived at Katathani, we found out that we had to stay at a physically separated wing, the Bhuri Wing, which was posing a danger for our 7 year old as she had to cross a relatively busy street to move between the room and the beach. The many other commercial properties between the two wings (shops, massage parlours, taxi stands, restaurants, etc.) made us very uneasy about letting her "loose" in the safety of a resort. No mention of being in a separate wing at the Expedia site and hotel website gives the impression that all is one enclosed resort rather than two separate "facilities". There were many other similar "resorts" like the Bhuri wing on the land side of the road and they did not cost as much.Staff was very attentive and kind to upgrade our room but again at the Bhuri wing when I brought my concerns and dissatisfaction to their attention. However, room upgrade did not address our real issue. It would have been a great family holiday and much more relaxing if we could have stayed at your real "resort", i.e. the Thani Wing. Price was not the issue but misleading description was..! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wi fi not in rooms, disappointing for 2013. Access from our room to reception and to the beach is through the breakfast restaurant, no other access available, this is uncomfortable for diners and guests, breakfast was very international, very high quality and great variety. Staff at the pool bar very helpful, good variety of drinks and food coming from […] the kitchen was beautiful, spend more money on comfortable chairs and you will make more money on drinks, we could not sit any longer than 2 drinks, as there is no padding on chairs, and back of chairs don't allow you to sit comfortably. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel location is good for people who want to lock away from the rest of world for a limited period. There is nothing to do ther other than sun bathe or relax around the pools or the barsnext to the beach. The food is the same everyday. They should introduce more variety in their cuisine. The resort is tucked away so you have to use taxi to get […] to another resturant elsewhere. There is nothing where you can walk to. The rooms are badly in need of refurbishment. However the bed was quite comfortable. It is the old interior decor that made it feel like a 3 star hotel. Management could give staff a more attractive uniform especially the female staff. In this day and age it is disappointing that complimentary internet was not offered except on reception computers that were always filled wiht people and those computers are very slow. I will not return there unless management does an overall in the interior and help staff to be warmer to guests. Staff were helpful overall but could be better.

"Very average stay"
stayed with my family over the Chinese New Year, stayed what they called the "mountain view" and the room was absolutely dreadful. In overall, the hotel is very big and tries to cater for everone ie. families, old retirees, honeymoners and wedding. the location of the hotel and the beach are quite good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lived like a queen"
Wow. What an amazing place. We stayed in the Bhuri wing and the rooms were gorgeous. The resort grounds were flawless, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast each morning was fit for royalty. We booked a couple of things to do via reception and they were more than happy to help and reasonably priced. There are a few shops and places […] to eat nearby, but also a short ride to more busy areas. We were actually there for a wedding at the same resort which was incredible. 10 out of 10.

"recent holiday experience nov-dec 2012"
Booked a grand suite, the ocean view was wonderful, but the suite a little bit disappointing, old looking and worn furnishings, flooring in lounge/balcony tiles very old and tired, all was however very clean and room service was excellent. All other amenities however very excellent standard and breakfast was amazing with many choices. If you stay in […] this resort you have best views, location etc but it is very expensive to travel back and forwards to other areas like Patong. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
perfect location with the best beach in Phuket, much more quieter than patong beach but also much more beautiful views and powder soft sand. The hotel have very affordable restaurants outside of it should you not want to eat in the resort and also a number of spas and gift shops. I did dine in the 3 of the hotel's restaurants and the food was of a very […] high standard with excellent service. The spa is also divine where I had two treatments, for less money you can also have massages, pedicure etc on the beach, by the pool or the grounds of the resort by staff who work for the spa. Coplimentary bottled water provided daily, bathrobes, slippers, iron and ironing board in the room.I stayed in thani junior ocean view suit and was not dissapointed very high standard and amazing views of the ocean. You can sit out on your balcony sipping drinks or having breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel on a beautiful beach"
This is a great hotel for families or anyone wanting beautiful grounds, lovely staff and great food. It is away from the crowds but close enough to Karon for shopping.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rooms need makeover"
The amenities of the hotel (reception, restaurants, pools, gardens, spa etc) are certainly 4.5 star quality. However the rooms could do with an upgrade. We had a room in the block right next to the reception on the first floor, and it always smelled kind of moldy when you entered, and especially between the bed and the bathroom. The bathroom doesn't […] have any ventilation, which certainly doesn't help. And you don't want to have the aircon set to 15 degrees (when it is 30 outside...) so you don't have moisture on the floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Thoroughly enjoyable experience"
We enjoyed a 5 night stay at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were extremely accommodating. Nothing was too hard for them. The facilities were fantastic and the grounds were well maintained. There was a great selection of restaurants and bars to choose from and the food was of a very high standard. The buffet breakfast was […] impressive. The only negative was that the rooms (whilst comfortable) were a little dated. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and we would not hesitate to return.

"Kathani Phuket beach resort"
Great hotel in a quiet location. The service was amazing and the resort was beautiful. Just watch out as everything in and around the resort is fairly overpriced. If you are wanting cheaper prices head into Kata, Karon or Patong.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was wonderfull, the s taff were beautiful and very helpful, the whole place is set up for the holidaymaker to enjoy. There were two very special people who are above and beyond they are Amy from the tours counter she made you feel as if you and your holiday were the most thing important in the world. The staff of the fishermans wharf restuarant make […] lunchtime a joy, especially Kookia, shes a joy, learning to speak english as she goes about paying you the great attention and service. Great stay, will go again oneday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very happy with our stay!"
Excellent Hotel, with great amenities, well kept grounds and very clean (although the Thani wing where we stayed is looking a little older now). The coconut bar at happy hour during sunset is a great experience. However, if you're going to go on the hotel's provided walk activity, be prepared for a grueling trek up a very large hill.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay, family vacation next!"
Kata Noi beach was like a private beach for Katathani resort guests. Great service, activities available for adults and kids. Will be there with family next time! Fantastic staff, keep the smiles up Katathani!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great resort in Kata"
Location of the hotel is great away from the usual hubbub, still close enough to walk to Kata centre with nearby shops and restaurants if you want to try something different from the hotel's offerings( which are good but a bit pricier). Great manicured gardens and pools and a lovely, clean swimable beach. Rooms good size and well maintained but need […] updating. Staff are great from gardener to reception staff invariably friendly and cheerful and all speak useful English. Reception staff particularly helpful with local restaurant bookings and knowledgeable about tours on offer. When next in Thailand I would happily stay here again as on a cost/relaxation ratio this hotel offers maximum bang for your buck even though it might be dearer than others in Kata. Recommended if you want a nice fuss free relaxing holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a nice quiet beach."
Arrived at the hotel (Buri wing which is slightly further than the main hotel) which is about an hour from the Airport and were greeted with a drink, cold towel and traditional flower bracelets as they began to check us in. The check in process took ages as the staff member decided to take a complaint call from one of the guests already checked in. […] She then took 10 minutes trying to solve that person problem rather than actually checking us in. She apologised but I do not think that it was good enough. She should have passed the complaint on to someone else or have someone else continue our check in process. Room was lovely. Large bed and lovely room (quite modern design but stiff traditional). Breakfast was lovely as well. You could have whatever eggs you wanted too. Although I found their ready made poached eggs really nice (like eggs benedict). For the 3 days that I was there, the service around the pool area before 1pm was very bad. For 1, they was no staff around so you couldn't order drinks or food. It was not always clean - there were empty glasses etc from previous occupants. Otherwise, the pool area on the Buri Wing was quite nice. Nightlife in the hotel is quite quiet (which I liked) and we head into the main kata beach for dinner in the evenings (about 200 baht in taxi outside hotel). If you don't want to venture that far out, even the independent orchid restaurant on the main strip of the hotel was nice and had free wifi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for a relaxing week in Phuket"
Great hotel - comfortable, very clean and tidy (room, facilities, pools, everything), really friendly staff. It's also a great location - it's 5-10 mins drive to Kata (200B), or 15-20 to Patong (500B), which is way better than being in the middle of it. It's quiet but accessible, and you're not assaulted by the "wondeerful" smells of the towns :-) There […] are some great restaurants and really cheap laundromat down the street, and a couple of massage places too - all worth checking out rather than feeling you need to "go somewhere" for these things. Dropping your entire suitcase in at the laundry for wash/iron at 70B at the end of your trip makes for an easy return :-) Best of all - you've basically got your own private beach. There is no easy access to the beach except for a couple of adjoining hotels - absolutely brilliant. Only tiny thing for me was that I didn't really rate the food in the hotel itself. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't that great. This is only relevant if you're planning on spending all day by the pool and on the beach - as we did - and my GF disagrees with this, but just for the record. I'd also reccomend grabbing one of the non-hotel taxi drivers out the front - they have great local knowledge, will effectively act as your personal driver for a little tip, and have good contacts for booking day trips for much less than the hotel. We booked a day trip for 2,000B each, which the hotel was booking for 3,200B. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is right at the beach in Phuket. Beautiful landscape and ocean view. Beautiful private beach, tranquil and clean. Many families with young kids stay at this hotel.

"Relaxing and great resort"
Katathani is a fabulous resort with beautifully maintained gardens leading onto a white sandy beach. The staff are really attentive and welcoming and the buffet breakfasts are extensive and really high quality. There are a few shops and restaurants close to the hotel but a taxi to nearby Kata is cheap. The only issue that we faced was the smell of damp […] in our room(s) - we moved twice. We arrived immediately following two weeks of monsoon weather so guess that was why. It was the only thing that disappointed us about the resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Relaxing, Quiet time"
Had a great relaxing week. Hotel was quiet and it was exactly the relaxing time we were looking for. Would possibly be too quiet for people looking for a party atmosphere, but it is only 25 minutes to Patong and only 500THB. Partner has Coeliac and was well catered for during breakfast but was sick a couple of nights after eating dinner at the buffet […] restaurant. Would recommend eating in Kata that has plenty of cheap options and if you are looking for something a bit more up market then the "Boathouse" has fantastic food and views to match. Shopping in Kata and Karon just as cheap as Patong and with less crowds. Would recommend this tresort to people looking for a quiet break and for families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A great getaway, beach is right beside resort"
The Deluxe Suite was beautiful! Overall in-room service was excellent. The daily complimentary breakfast spread was good, accompanied with extremely warm and friendly waiters. The Spa services is a must visit! Had 2 massage sessions each lasting 1.5 hours long on 2 separate days, techniques were consistent and staff was friendly. However, there was […] a mix-up at the front desk over our airport transfer services. We were waiting at the lobby, made several enquiries with the receptionist, was forgotten, was told the driver was on his way… only to find out later that the mini-van driver was parked some distance away all the while. We had paid an additional 500Baht for a stopover at the supermarket, but this time was eaten into due to the mix-up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Thanks to hotels.com me and my partner were able to spend 1 week at the katathani hotel! We got an amazing discount and after this holiday we have become closer . It is in a quiet location but still close enough to shop at kata centre, the staff were lovely , the beach was crystal clear , the restaurants were delicious and I couldn't of asked for anything […] more!

"Perfect resort holiday"
We got married here, was absolutely perfect, would rate wedding 5/5. Would be rating hotel 4.5 if I could.

We had booked for 3 nights stay with our 1st night at Junior Suite (oceanfront) & the following nights at Junior Suite (Seaview) as the oceanfront room was fully booked. We had a complimentary upgrade to Royal Suite Room (full seaview, Jacuzzi) for the 1st night upon Arrival by Assistant Manager. During check-in, we had been told that we need to check […] out by 12 noon on the next day & need to re-check in into Junior Suite (Seaview) room latest by 2pm. At 1st we thought it could be troublesome to do so. What a surprise to us! When we walked pass the lobby in the evening, the Assistant Manager approached us, telling us that they can provide us a complimentary upgrade for our entire 3-night stay at the amazing Royal Suite Room. It made us so touched that the Assistant Manager not only could recognise each of his customers/remembered my name, but also considerate enough to understand customers' need & acted accordingly. Other Pros: i) Free transfer to room by buggy upon check-in & check-out; ii) Complimentary cakes with Happy Anniversary; iii) Fragrance Oil in bath room upon arrival; iv) Complimentary drinks (soft drinks & mineral waters) v) Cleanliness of the room was perfect vi) Thani wings very close to beach & pools Cons: i) In-room wifi is chargeable (though free internet is available at lobby) ii) Tennis rackets are chargeable Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed at the Katathani for 9 nights in total and loved it! The restaurants are great food and good value. Even eating by the pool which is normally expensive was cheap! The location is quiet and right on the beach where the water was clean and sand clean! I have an 8 year old son and he was happy to go to the kids club where they had a play station […] and activities. The staff were delightful and when you have a late checkout they have a room with showers and clean towels and a hair dryer so you can go to the airport looking decent!

"Katathani Phuket Beach Resort"
Fabulous place to stay. The resort is out of the busy areas of Phuket which makes it very relaxing. If you want to go to restaurants and for shopping the resort is only a short distance by tuk tuk to Kata or 30mins to Patong. You can also easily walk to Kata. The resort facilities are great - plenty of pools, a lovely beach and breakfast was great too. […] The room was pleasant but needed a bit of an upgrade. However, the facitilies and staff at the resort more than made up for the room. Having seen quite alot of areas of Phuket while we were there, we would definately go back to Kata Noi Beach and stay at Katathani. If you are not a party animal and like to be out of the busy areas but still be in reasonable distance to them then this is a great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
