"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!!!...

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
It takes my families 4 days to stay this hotel. I like Kata Noi beach, kids club, pools, and food. I hope I'd be here for holidays some day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our 5 days expirience in Katathani"
Good location, near the beach, but this hotel have no own beach. Not so many restaurant (only 2) in a walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice stay we I booked 4 nights: Firstable the hotel has two different parts we were placed in Bhuri wing we realized that this side had way better amenities as they are newer and more modern, more private, less kids and less people, than the main side of the hotel. Staff at front desk is kind and professional. Our room building looked dated and it was […] smelly most of the time. When we came into the room it was a dissapointment since it looks that they were stuck in remodelation and left it half way some parts look old and some parts look new. Bed was super confortable! Nice shower. Room lacks maintenance. Room lacked cleaness, floor was dirty when we came in and daily maid service is not good they do not do a good job cleaning there was many dusty parts, floor and sink were never well cleaned thoughout our stay. Hair dryer did not wok. Beach towels are very old all washed out but clean. Room is not so bad if you take into consideration price it is bareable, specially if you are on a budget. Grounds are beautiful, very well kept, modern, spotless clean, we loved the pool area in front of the beach, wonderful beautiful beach you can swim with some precaution, excellent bar and restaurants, excellent strong drinks,staff is friendly. Prices for food, drinks and excursions are great!!! All these make up for the not so nice room, as we spent most of our time outside. Kata Beach is nice. If you are on a budget I would definitely recommend this resort. Read moreGenuine 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
"What a let down"
Overall very poor. Staff not properly trained, not friendly nor helpful............sometimes rude. Hotel old and tired and quite uninspiring. Will never return, this place is horribly overpriced for what you get.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great relaxation break away"
We headed to Thailand for a 7 day break and found ourselves immediately relaxing at Katathani. The staff were lovely, the beach was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will certainly be back to stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic Short Break"
We stayed for 3 nights. Everything was very clean and the staff very helpful. Great views, hotel grounds and food. Only niggle the sink plug didn't work properly and the shower head didn't stay in position very well. Kata the main town is really a taxi ride away, there are a few shops and restaurants outside the hotel complex.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Me and my partner had our wedding there . It was fantastic. The staff were amazing the setting was stunning it was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our original room was clean but in a very poor position, no view stuck in the corner. We elected to upgrade to get a better room with a view & better position..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great service, very friendly,"
service was always great and all were very friendly. right on the beach but you have to pay for sun beds on beach. poolside was great . Hotel is great for couples or families wanting to be away from the hustle and bustle of the nightlife. Otherwise a taxi would be needed. Would have thought a beach resort like this would have had wifi throughout the […] hotel but only in reception and by poolside, may need to pay extra to have internet in bedrooms. Overall was very happy with my stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel on a even greater beach"
very modern hotel at end of no through road situated on probably one of the best beaches on phuket island - staff all really friendly and nothing too much troubleGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a fantastic hotel on a beautiful beach. It is in a very quiet location with a few restaurants and bars and a convenience store if you want to go out of the hotel. There are plenty of taxis around if you want to head into patong karon or kata for a bit of nightlife but the hotel is so peaceful you don't want to leave. Staff are happy to do anything […] to make your stay perfect and it was. Thanks Katathani beach resort we will be back. It doesn't get much better than this Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
1st time visitors. Had a wonderful time. All staff friendly. Excellent service. Excellent facilities. Would not hesitate to recommend. Will certainly be going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect resort for Easter break"
We had a wonderful time at the resort. To our surprise we were upgraded to the 2bedroom villa (we were two couples travelling together). However, we had to wait until 3pm until we could finally get the room keys. The waiting time was rather long, we arrived at 10 am already. However, the staff offered us to get a shower and get changed if we wanted […] to. But we preferred to wait. The pool areas are very nice, the variety of restaurants and bars is good. Although there were a lot of families with kids, we didn't really notice them and the resort is suitable for both, family, groups, couples or singles. The resort is huge and there is a place for everyone. Too bad the hotel doesn't have an exclusive beach section with lounge chairs and umbrellas for hotel guests. That would make it perfect. The hotel transfer we organised in advance worked perfectly. Our flight back to Singapore was early in the morning. We had to leave at 6am and were not able to enjoy the breakfast buffet, so to our surprise the hotel provided a breakfast package we could take with us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach location"
The location of this hotel just one of this great points. It is the last beach on the coastline so there is no through traffic. Clean white sand and the hotel takes great effort to keep it that way. We have travelled the whole island of Phuket and this is by far the best beach. We like how it is not crowded and it is a short tuk tuk ride to the action […] of Kata but we prefer to walk to get the exercise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to beach nice and quiet area"
Great hotel close to beach nice and quiet area, reasonably priced meals, drinks and massages etc great buffet in the morning! Good family resortGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort in a good location."
Great location, 5 mins to Kata and 30mins to Patong, on a nice beach. Resort facilities, staff and breakfast were good. Stayed in a junior suite and had friends in a deluxe room, the suite was bigger but the deluxe room was much better (more modern, convenient position and proper cable tv), so wouldnt advocate paying extra for a suite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel and grounds on a lovely bay"
Cannot fault this hotel. Beautiful facilities, rooms, staff, breakfasts and all set on a stunning bay and beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a superior room and it was perfect. It was big enough, clean and had everything we needed. However, friends I were with had different superior rooms and they were not as good as ours.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful grounds by the beach"
This hotel is in a great location right on the beach with beautiful grounds. It's also good in that it's at the end of a road so not too busy traffic wise. The staff were delightful and helpful and the prices in the hotel were reasonable. The breakfast buffet was well catered. The only disappointing part was the room itself. It was a bit "dingy" and […] terribly damp with a constant damp smell about it. The bathroom/toilet felt old and tired and, again, had a constant unpleasant smell about it. Other than that we would recommend it for all the other reasons above. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with plenty of facilities"
Hotel has plenty of facilities and is set on Kata noi beach which is one of the most idyllic in the area and the hotel occupies most of the beach. Hotel staff are super friendly and always happy to help. The room was comfortable, although a bit warn in some areas but overall nice and nothing that would put us off revisiting this hotel . This hotel is […] more of a resort as it has restaurants, bars, shops, scuba centre, gym, pools and beach all on site. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice hotel, great and quiet beach"
Usually not into large hotels but really liked this one Comfortable room (we had a suite with seaview on the new wing), a lot of open and green areas, beautiful and quiet beach, very friendly staff, good, diversified and not that expensive food (even wine was good and reasonnably priced)Genuine Expedia guest review
The room maids ensured that the room was perfectly made up every day.the reception staff were always friendly, approachable and helpful. The restaurant staff learnt our room number on our second visit. We stayed in a Deluxe room in the Bhuri wing, it was in great condition and such a short walk to the beach. We really enjoyed that it was away from the […] hustle and bustle of Kata beach, particularly as there were numerous restaurants and a mini-mart right outside the hotel. Everything you could need.

"Beach Front Fantastic"
First trip to Thailand with my sister to celebrate her 60th birthday. We visited Bangkok for a couple of nights prior to arriving at the Katathani. When we arrived it was like driving into paradise. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast was excellent. the […] restaurants were superb. We had a couple of minor issues, one with the air conditioning, within 5 minutes someone was there to sort it, he couldnt, so sent an engineer, within 30 minutes it was fixed. Being two middle aged women on our own we always felt safe and looked after. The beach is very clean and never too busy. The hotel provided a lovely birthday cake as a surprise for my sister. It was the holiday of a lifetime and I look forward to booking again and taking my husband. Thanks Katathani was a fantastic holiday experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful beach and friendly staff."
Best Resort in Phuket. Very luxurious and beautiful place to stay. Would recommend to our friends and family. Kata Noi is by far the most beautiful beach on Phuket Island.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An amazing resort for families or couples!"
We stayed 5 nights at Katathani resort based on a friends recommendation and it did not disappoint! The size of the resort blew us away, but regardless of its size, the service was never lacking - was the best service we had the whole time whilst in Thailand. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Phuket again :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect as always"
This is a place I could stay forever. The staff are great and the location is perfect. Some great scuba diving straight off the beach and only 10 minutes from some of the best sights on the island.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, away from the hustle of Phuket"
If you want to be right in the middle of the action, this probably isn't the hotel for you. The staff were great, facilities excellent, and even my relatively modest room was perfectly serviced and comfortable for the whole week I was there. It's a good 20 minute walk into Kata proper for shopping and a 20 minute drive to Patong for the bar and real […] shopping action. It should be said also, that the practically private beach of Kata Noi is far superior to Kata or Patong, mainly because it's much less busy, with more sand than Kata and the same wonderfully warm ocean water. The pools in the resort are also fantastic, wonderful for kids and adults. All the food I ate within the resort itself was first class, particularly the buffet breakfasts in the Cinnamon restaurant, which were so filling that I regularly skipped lunch. Unfortunately, on my third trip to Thailand, I finally succumbed to "Phuket Belly", and my last night was spent in my room running to the bathroom on the hour. The hotel clinic sorted me out the next morning with some antibiotics, and got me well for the plane trip home. Also, I arrived at 9am on the day of check in, and even though check in is 2pm, my room was ready by 10am, and a late checkout of 3pm was no problem either. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"First impressions count"
We came to Katathani for a friends wedding and after staying in 4 star accommodation in Phuket, on arrival we were greeted with an abrupt, rude receptionist. She insisted we provide a hotel voucher and when we said we didn't have one, she made us email it to the hotel, right then and there! I was shocked at how we had been to 3 different hotels of differing […] star quality and that NONE of them had asked for hotel vouchers. The resort is very large and impressive, however our room was only accessible through a restaurant, which was awkward. Breakfast was a wide selection of western foods and some thai food and delicious. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The stay was not up to the standard that Internet"
The Internet showed pictures greater than ecpected for the price. Staff friendly and gardens n location lovely but room dark n damp feel to it Just not worth the moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort and beach, quiet get-away"
The resort is beautiful with several pools, great landscaping and spotless and very comfortable modern rooms. The location is perfect for a quiet get-away, The surrounding area, within walking distance, is quite small and therefore has limited options for off-site dining or activities. Would definitely return for a longer stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolute beach frontage sets this resort apart"
If you want a holiday where you can walk straight from your hotel room onto the beach, then Katathani is a great choice. Our junior suite looked out over the hotel pool and the beach - it was exactly what we wanted. The resort is not luxurious but it is well appointed and our room was lovely. Highlights were the beachfront location, the pools (we counted […] at least four), great food, friendly and helpful staff. Our only complaint was the hotel day spa - it was expensive and the massage I got there was not good. You would find better massages at a much cheaper price outside the resort. Also, Katathani is quite a way from Patong, so it's not a good choice if you want to go to Patong every day. We just wanted to get away from it all and for us it was a perfect choice.
