"Title is misleading"
Overall we did have a good stay at this hotel, but we did have some problems and I felt very mislead going into the experience. Most importantly, I booked this hotel because I thought it was on the beach! But unless you book a Junior Suite level or above, your room will be ACROSS the STREET from the beach, and none of the rooms overlook the ocean at […] all. We had trouble at check-in; they had "upgraded" us to a family suite after I booked a King room with pool views. WRONG. The "Family" room was small, overlooked a road and had two double beds. We had to go back down and complain before they would even change our room. We did end up getting the correct room but had to wait three hours after the designated check in time for it to be ready. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the resort grounds were fantastic, but the rooms are old, musty, and lacking in privacy as the bathroom is completely open to the room and there are not doors in which to close it off. I would not recommend coming here on a romantic honeymoon where you want to spend a lot of time in your room!! For the money, I was disappointed in the experience. This is not a 5 star resort, I would give it a 3.5 stars when compared with other resorts I have stayed at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxing, very enjoyable romantic getaway"
Kata thank Beach Resort was extremely pleasurable. We only stayed for two days due to trip constraints but thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Cinnamon's breakfast was amazing, and the Thai restaurant (can't remember the name) was accommodating as they made me a special request which was not on the menu. Fisherman's Wharf restaurant wasn't as great with […] either service or food, but the musicians that sang and played music at each table were quite enjoyable. The hotel service was extremely nice and hospitable. Our junior suite seaside room was very clean and comfortable. We had more of a view of the pool and Palm trees but could see the blue ocean waters as well, and sitting on the patio at night listening to the waves crash onshore put me in a calm and happy mood. You do have to pay for WiFi which I found annoying. Overall a relaxing resort which I would recommend to friends and family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to unwind"
Great hotel. Good food and pools. Beach was perfect. Got the junior suite on the 3rd floor. Great ocean view close to everything. Thani wing the one to be in. Closer to beach and nicer resturants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great beach access and amenities...room overall okay but can be slightly be more updated.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a beautiful property on its own secluded beach. All the amenities you would expect at a top tier resort. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The restaurants are good quality and the pools are great. Even though off season this was a wonderful experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"1 week in Kata Thani, had a great time."
Extremely pleasant and helpful staff from arrival to leaving, beautiful rooms and hotel grounds everything in well kept order, the only drawback if there was one was the oil patches mixed with sand sticking to your feet/sandals, we had to throw away about 3 pairs of flips flops, but this is not isolated to the KT but to all beaches in Phuket these days, […] the Thai government are obviously not controlling the tourism properly down there. All in all, a very good stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Kata Beach Hotel"
Nice hotel by the beach. Good breakfast. Could use a little updating in some areas but it worked.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Resort style hotel located on quiet, public beach."
After a ridiculous adventure to get to Phuket (re: don't take trains in Thailand), a hot shower and a comfy bed was all we wanted, and Katathani delivered. The week only got better - it's location on Kata Noi beach was quiet and relaxing with the hardest decision was to cool off in the pool or the ocean. The breakfast buffet was delicious, but necessary, […] given it's outside of Kata town with few restaurants. Short walk to Kata town, but the restaurants on the hotel's road and in Kata town seemed very Westernized. Limited transportation, so you rely on the hotel taxi ($$) or flagging down and negotiating with a local taxi. It was quiet and relaxing - perfect way to end a 3-week jaunt through Asia.

This was a great, world-class destination. The hotel sits on a pristine, gorgeous bay! The massage people on the property made it especially reat. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfasts also.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach, but this hotel has gone downhill."
This was the second time I have stayed at this property. This time I stayed in a 'grand sea view suite'. I honestly could not tell the difference between the suite and a regular room. In fact my partner said the bathroom and sitting area in the regular rooms are better than in the suites. I would usually expect a suite to have a sofa and maybe an armchair […] and a desk. None of those things in the suites at this hotel. I think that the hotel has gone for a strategy of selling rooms at low cost to budget package tour operators. I noticed a lot more families and students in this most recent trip. The place was completely packed and clearly the reception staff were overwhelmed and unable to function under the pressure. So many children at this hotel. Don't go here for a romantic getaway. There are no non-smoking rooms, and everyone seems to smoke. The people in the room next to mine smoked day and night and the smoke somehow got into my room. There was no escaping the smoke in my room or anywhere on the property. A lot of the rules and quirks at this place are annoying. Eg the gym is only open during office hours and there are no late checkouts even for a fee. The in-room wifi is not free (nor is it very expensive. I paid 500bhat for a week wifi access), but it is very unreliable. Only works half the time and is very weak and slow when it does work. The breakfast is nice, however the food at lunchtime in the fishermans wharf restaurant is revolting mush. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful, well-run resort!"
Came to stay for a week for my cousins wedding and was not disappointed! Great food, excellent service, clean and modern rooms. I loved every moment and the wedding turned out beautifully, with every detail perfect! Would love to return someday!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay in Phuket"
Katathani Resort in Phuket is a great place to stay when visiting Phuket - highly recommended. The staff is extremely friendly and the beach is amazing. We would recommend upgrading to the Grand Suite which gives a great room of the Ocean and provides a very comfortable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
this place was great for us. private beach, great facilities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I stayed here for 4 days after a visit to Bangkok. While the Katathani may be better than the other hotels in the area, it was extremely disappointing for us. The room smelled of mildew. It just did not look extremely clean. The pools were crowded, and the water was very warm - not refreshing. You had to pay to use the chairs on the beach. […] Definitely not worth traveling from the US to beach here (the area is equivalent to the Dominican Republic and might have worse beaches). We stayed in the newer wing, which was much better than the old part. For the price, I thought that the quality of everything would have been better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Terrible experience ,was suppose to stay 3 nights but was gone after 7 hours of bad sleep...hotel and room not has described ... tiny bathroom open to an ugly room with plastic fake hardwood floors...,plastic chairs all around an ugly pool...couldn't even see the beach unless you crossed a road and walked 300 meters...couldn't beleive my eyes after […] being in such a beautiful country!!!... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I had a great recent stay in an ocean front room, which was spacious and clean. The grounds and room upkeep is excellent with no signs of mildew or insects inside. There was a breakfast buffet included which was very good with a wide selection of Asian and Western choices. The beach is nice, though the waves were very high during our stay […] (monsoon season), which meant is was too rough to go into the ocean. The hotel pools were quite nice, though. The location is further away from many of the main attractions or larger cities, but there are 2 Thai seafood restaurants, taxi stand, pharmacy, mini-mart and currency exchange immediately across the street. A little further away (which involves walking up and down a big hill) are many more restaurants and stores. We thought it was a good balance of being quiet without being isolated. The main areas of Kata, Patong, and Phuket are best accessible by taxi (200-500 baht). The hotel itself was pretty quiet, too. There were a few families with children, but it seemed mostly adult couples. I didn't notice many organized children's activities on the posted schedules. The free wifi in the lobby was too slow to be usable, but there are many desktop computers for free usage (including printers) scattered throughout the hotel, so that was not an issue for us. Overall, we thought it was a great place to stay if you like things a little quieter, but still have easy access to many of the main attractions on Phuket. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not very pleasant"
The female staff was extremely unfriendly at check-in. The male staff who ushered me to my room talked way too much and seemed like he didn't want to leave my room. There is no complimentary in-room wifi (and charges are unreasonable). Wifi in public areas is weak and unstable. Rooms are very old. A lot of mosquitoes. Food quality at buffet breakfast […] is below average. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place Went for a wedding at the resort"
Extremely enjoyable Great pools, great beach The wedding was held there as well and that was fantastic as well Left and went to a couple of other hotels and would recommend KatathaniGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach but get room in newer wing"
We had booked a "Delux" room and we got a room worse than a third rate motel. It had old tired wooden walls, cheap linoleum floor and was reeking of mould. After we complained, we were given a better room that did not have any of the problems of the first room and we were satisfied with that. Hotels.com booking service does not indicated rooms are available […] in which wing: Thani wing on the beach side of the road or the Thuri wing on the other side of the road. Hotels.com should warn customers of this option. The beach and the resort grounds were good. The restaurants were good. The hotel is in Kata Noi and on a dead end road, and hence there is only a limited choice of restaurants on the street. There is a 20 minute strenuous hilly walk, or a 200 Baht taxi ride to the main Kata beach area to get more selection. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel opposite beach"
Great staff ,great breakfast catered for all tastes. Meet some awesome people from around the world.Walking distance to local shops, restaurants and short ride or walk to Kata beach night life.Beautiful clean beach.

We couldn't have been happier with our recent stay at Katathani. The room was sufficient and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The resort grounds are very well maintained and the staff are very friendly. We look forward to returning again soon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Stunning private surf beach with beautiful rock cliffs surrounding. All necessities available at the resort so no need to leave eg. Pharmacy & doctor, mini supermarket, many bars & restaurants. Fantastic friendly staff, very good English, prompt service & very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel is right on a great beach. Rooms are ok but quality differs between the 2 hotel wings. Food was generally good with reasonable prices.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Special Place"
This was our 4th stay at Katathani: This occasion celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We were presented with a loyalty card which entitled us to discounts on food, drinks and hotel services. On this occasion we booked an Ocean Front Suite which was fantastic. During our 2 weeks stay (on a bed & breakfast basis) we rarely ventured off site - spending […] our days relaxing on sunbeds and swimming in the sea. We started each day with an ample and varied buffet breakfast at Chom Tallay restaurant and varied our evening meals between Chom Tallay's themed evenings, gorgeous steaks at Fishermans Wharf and a selection off-site nearby restaurants. On a couple of evenings we ventured by taxi / tuk-tuk to nearby Kata Beach and further afield to the Hard Rock Café at Patong. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent beach side resort"
We stayed here for a week at the end of October. From the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. No matter who we were dealing with, or just walking past everyone had a smile on their face and genuinely seemed to enjoy working there. We stayed in a Grand Suite close to the beach. The room was lovely and immaculately decorated […] and clean. Although we ate out most of the time we did try a couple of the restaurants and the food was excellent. Breakfast was a bit hectic, but I think that was down to the time we went to breakfast, usually about 9am everyday. We could have gone anytime from 6am-11am so I'm sure there are quieter times. The pools are a pleasant break from the sea if you prefer but to be honest the sea and sand were a big attraction for us so little time was spent round the pool. I did notice that one pool sign posted as adults only often had children in it which may be a problem for some. Oh we can highly recommend the Thai cookery class, this was excellent and well worth the money. All in all this is an excellent resort and one I wouldn't hesitate to visit again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is as close to perfect as you are going to find. A peaceful part of Phuket but close enough to taxi into Patong Beach if you need a bit of hustle and bustle!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best value for money in Phuket"
My partner and I stay here whenever we come to Phuket. It's not just the rooms or the staff that are great but it's the vibe. Because they have their own private beach its great for morning run on the beach, day time drinks, great sunsets. Absolutely love this joint. Don't stay in the deluxe rooms as it is in another wing which won't give you the same […] experience. Junior suite as a minimum or where my partner and I always stay the Grand Suites.

"Very nice hotel and a wonderful beach"
The location is perfect for me and my family. It was not the last time that we make vaction in this hotel. the beach is very clean. The price for foot and drinks was okay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Kata Noi was great. the hotel was fabulous in every way. It is away from all the 'offerings' of Patong and peaceful. Staff are wonderful, restaurants are great, massages are a life saver - we loved it. The rainy days were not so good but the Tigers made up for that. Bird show - limited. My husband had 2 shirts made there and taylors were excellent and […] like lightening in regard to production of product. Amazing. The Fishermans Wharf had the most amazing lobster - not cheap but well worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing resort! Even better location!"
We stayed here for only a few short days, but the resort was very nice. There are plenty of restaurants within the resort, and you are literally 2-3 minutes walking distance from the water. And speaking of which, the water is the best water I have ever seen! Beautiful, clean and very quite beaches! I will be back! It is also very family oriented.Genuine Expedia guest review
Magnificent resort located in a quiter part of Phuket. If the night life of Patong St is not your thing, and you want a quiet, relaxing holiday - then this is the place to be. Resort leave you missing out on nothing. Swimming pools galore, a wide range of restaurants, lush tropical gardens - it has it all. Great for families, or like us, a couple enjoying […] a trip away from the kids. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect family retreat"
A fabulous resort for families, I stayed here with my Husband and two boys aged 3 and 4. We also stayed at 2 other hotels in Phuket and this resort was A+ The beach is the prettiest I saw while we were there! Plenty of pools that cater to all age groups and. We stayed in a grande suite and it was HUGE, looking over the beach-amazing!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with good facilities"
Our stay was pleasant with the hotel offering a lot if facilities such as; six pools, a variety of restaurants and bars. The hotel is good for families or people wanting to stay around the Resort and not venture too far. The hotel is at the bottom end of Kata and away from the markers and night life. If you want to do anything, it requires a taxi or […] a long walk up a huge hill. There were signs advertising you can order drinks and snacks at each pool however there were never any staff around to place an order with. We found that if we wanted anything, we had to sermarxh around and ask many different staff members which was a little unhelpful at times. Overall, if you are wanting a nice semi-private beach, a lot if variety in pools and activities and not venture too far, then this Resort would be good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful resort, the hotel setting, grounds, pools and rooms are of the highest quality. Extremely relaxing with all you need at your door step. Away from the hustle and bustle however only 10min walk up the hill or quick tuk tuk ride to Kata to enjoy shopping, beach and restaurants. Staff are extremely helpful and will be coming back next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel on the beach"
Katathani Beach Resort is located on Kata Noi Beach around the headland from Kata Beach. The hotel seemed very family friendly. Spacious rooms, friendly helpful staff with a few restaurants on the premises. Beautiful gardens and several swimming pools.Genuine Expedia guest review
I'll start from the room, it was clean, neat, amazing junior suite, awesome sea view! me and friend were so happy.. we have gone to several resort trips in Bali, Krabi, Langkawi, Gili and other beaches places.. this resort deserve 8/10 points for the nice breeze and seashore lullaby :) wondeful! Price wise is pretty competitive with such quality of […] rooms and resort overall. One thing that lil bit annoyed us, was we received a call from receptionist mentioned that hotel policy strictly disallow other guests (ie our friends who drove us to the resort) to enter the room without showing their ID and register in the lobby-where they'd be given a visitor access card! the best was: 1st time visitor card is f.o.c the subsequent card will be chargeable! we just wondering and keep comparing with our other trips, this resort is not even five star resort, why they hv to be so strict and charge every single thing? wifi chargeable is fine for us, but visitor card? oh come on! well, since this was never happenned to us before and our beloved friends were really considerate, they ended up waiting in the lobby :( The overall staying was okay! breakfast was great as there were plenty of choices, except the omellete that was done super rushing, too un-cook inside.. just not so nice.. :( we tried the 50mins body massage on the open garden.. we will rate it 6/10. The bar staffs were kind and their service was awesome.. maybe yes we wl consider to stay again in Katathani.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gorgeous resort to be pampered"
5 nights was just the right amount of time to spend at Katathani. There are 6 lovely pools to swim in as well as the beach. The Peace pool was my favourite (with no kids allowed). The resort had daily activities such as yoga, cooking classes, diving lessons, etc. so you don't have time to get bored. The day trip to the Phi Phi Islands is definitely […] worthwhile, such amazing scenery & the snorkelling is fantastic. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed for 3 nights. Everything was very clean and the staff very helpful. Great views, hotel grounds and food.
