The hotel staff are very friendly and will do anything for you without any hesitation. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Restaurants are lovely with a great selection of food and not too expensive. I highly […] recommend this resort and I will be returning again for my next holiday.

"Nice hotel... With some small issues"
The hotel is in a great location and is very nice. The buffet wasn't great. I would highly recommend eating at the restaurants, which had excellent food. The front desk did forget to book our shuttle home... Which they acted like we forgot to tell them to book... They quickly resolved the problem so in the end it was ok. They also sent us with an excellent […] breakfast basket on our early morning departure! Lastly... The hotel has a nice spa but they charge 600 for a pedicure when there is a nail salon also on the hotel property who charges 250! Was not impressed after I paid the 600.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RESORT WITH EVERY POSSIBLE ACTIVITY TO DO WITHOUT LEAVING THE HOTEL. RESTAURANTS, POOLS, LOCATION, STAFF ALL BEYOND EXPECTATION. SO ROMANTIC AND PRIVATE AND WELL AS FUNGenuine Expedia guest review
I attended a nephew's beach wedding at the hotel; it was well organized, the food was good, the baby elephant was a nice touch, the singing trio were pretty good, however, the setting sun was quite hot, and it was a bit of struggle taking pictures against the sunlight due to the stage location, otherwise it was almost perfect. :-)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful staff and enjoyable stay"
We really enjoyed our stay at The Katathani Phuket Beach Resort, Kata Noi. They offered a large variety of food for their buffet breakfast and it was very delicious. They have a variety of restaurants available for lunch/dinner. We stayed in the Buri WIng but on our next stay we will upgrade to the Thani wing at the very front, beachside area of the […] resort. The Buri wing was only located about 150m from the beach and had two swimming pools within the Buri wing area. The staff were wonderful, very hospitable and always friendly. We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to others. The only negative aspect we could fault was that our room had a mould/musk smell to it. When we advised the hotel staff they kindly arranged for an electric oil burner to be placed within our room during our 5 night stay. Kata Noi is absolutely beautiful and always takes my breath away when I visit this part of Phuket. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel in great location!"
Love that the hotel runs the entire length of kata noi beach! It's so private and relaxing! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a delux room and we could see the ocean. Breakfast everyday was delicious! Such a huge selection and fresh!!! We ate dinner a couple of […] nights in the different restaurants within thd hotel and were not disappointed! The pool bar was great for snacks and cocktails and watching the sunset from there was something we'll never forget! We enjoyed the putting green, petanque and swimming pools! The only thing that disappointed us was that we had to come home! :( Would go back to this place anytime and would definitely recommend it!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The resort is fantastic. It's not too big so everything is at hand. Beautiful stretch of beach, lovely pool areas right next to the beach. Lots of restaurants serving great food. We would go again. onlybproblem we had was with the Airport transfer, don't bother there are loads of taxis. We was delayed getting in due to a typhoon going passed Hong Kong. […] We had booked the airport transfer and no one was there. At 2 in the morning with an infant we had to organize currency and get a taxi ...... Hotel still charged us for not turning up on time. Even that could not spoil our break there though!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort with every amenity right on beach"
Katathani is a very beautiful resort with the added bonus of being right on the beach. The restaurants on site are not cheap by Australian standards but the food is lovely and varied and you have a choice of five different ones offering different cuisines. You don't have to leave the resort at all if you don't want to because Katathani offers everything […] you need including four different pools and of course swimming in the sea (patrolled) is an option also. There is a well equipped gym and different activities available if you're interested. Staff are accommodating and friendly and the only downside is the distance from the airport and the traffic but taxis are cheap and available and walkining into Kata for lunch or shopping is not a problem. I have been to the resort twice now and have also tried others over the years but I will return to Katathani again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location, beautiful beach"
We were surprised with the quality of the Deluxe room having received a discount offer. We wouldn't have chosen a room so close to the lobby or pool, particularly as people trundled their luggage past at all times of the night. I did have a leg injury which meant that the ground floor location suited as well for this trip, so that balanced things up. […] The staff were very friendly and certainly the Thai people lived up to the title 'The Land of Smiles'. There were a number of restaurants providing a great selection of food and being able to eat out in the restaurants just outside the hotel meant that you could save money if you wanted to with meals from as little as 100 baht (approx £2 GBP). We would return to this hotel, perhaps in the high season, as the seas were particularly rough in July). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was perfect, except that on the last night while having happy hour drinks at the beach bar I saw a huge rat. I am terrified of rats. Otherwise we loved it. Great location, good food, wonderful beach, excellent service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolutely perfect location for quiet beach break"
Overall experience was wonderful. Location is excellent with beautiful beaches and pools. Poolside restaurant service was top notch as well as the quality of the food. Nothing but positive to say about the cleanliness and amenities of the room. Somewhat noisy quite late at night due to other guests using pool late at night. Front desk staff at check […] in were not very happy or welcoming and it is this alone that has dropped this hotel from a 5 to a 4 on the scale. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall, it is an excellent and reasonably priced hotel. Hopefully, my positive review will not cause the room rates to increase in the future. The only downside was that (having no other viable choice) we were forced by the hotel to pay 1100 Baht for our return taxi trip to the Phuket International Airport; we paid only 800 Baht for the trip from […] the airport to the hotel. Rates quoted by the taxi drivers outside of the hotel were even higher (1200 Baht). However, I guess this is not a major problem, since we North-Americans are well-known to be walking ATMs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Short 3 day stay was excellent"
Stayed here for a short 3 day visit with my sister and it was amazing! Loved all of the pools, especially the one by the beach and bar :) I would highly recommend this hotel to all kinds of travellers! Very kid friendly and off of the beaten path but a short 30 minute ride into Patong.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in south phuket!!!"
Great place to stay, the breakfast buffet can be a bit better, but was god in average.Genuine Expedia guest review
Superb location and the staff .facilities etc are first rate. Only down side, if any, was the amount of rubbish that can accumulate overnight on the beach, but this is a problem across all Thai beaches.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfort bed but small room"
No attach to beach, no jacuzziGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

"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.

"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.

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.

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.

"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

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.

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

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 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

"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
