"True luxury resort"
The suites at the Shore at Katathani are divine. They are modern, beautiful and the private infinity pool is an amazing feature. The views are also stunning - you feel like you're in a secluded jungle. The staff and facilities are lovely. Complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea service were also delicious treats, not to mention the daily fruit baskets and other goodies that they delivered to your room for turn down service. Only draw back is that this resort is quite removed from the main town area so you need to get a cab to go anywhere else outside the resort. The staff was very helpful though in arranging day trips and taxis for our few outside excursions. My husband also happened to hurt his foot on a boating trip and they had an on site medical center to treat him. The poolside massages are also not to be missed! Would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a special treat and a true luxury experience.

"Amazing!!!"
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we stayed in the room with sea view and pool. We absolutely loved it. The view was breathtaking. Service of hotel staff was also the best. They helped us with giving us info on activities to do. They also provide transportation from our room to any place close by in their golf cart. Most the hotel staff knew us by our names by our 2nd day there. If they saw us going to our rooms from the beach they came by in 15 times to give us more towels. This is the first hotel we have ever stayed at that we never had to call for more towels. The breakfast spread is very delicious and restaurants were really good. I will say that since the hotel is located on a cliff surrounded by woods there will be bugs around so if you are deathly afraid, you may not want to stay here. We didn't keep our sliding doors open for too long because of the Flys n bugs. The room was very clean and they use oil scents so the room smells amazing. We definitely want to come back again!

"Services are not good"
This resort only has less than 50 rooms. Usually a five stars resort with less than 50 rooms has very cozy, pleasant services or even provide a butler. But this resort has nothing like that. You are basically getting a 200+ room big hotel services in here. Two front desks literally sitting in the room watching me and my girlfriend open the door with our big luggages. They were staring us until we walk toward them 2 meters then showed us smile and stand up to take over our bags. Second day the same. Don't expect those small villa with individual butler services in here.

"Breathtaking room but..."
The room was gorgeous, but the food was mediocre, below average. Disappointing for the high prices they charge. Service was shoddy - no one speaks English and tips are expected (they stare at you and wait around until you give them something). They need to fix these issues to justify the $600+ per night they charge.

Hotel is located on a the far end of Kata Beach and is absolutely amazing! We stayed in a private villa with a pool and the staff could not have been nicer! No complaints at all and the only downside was the bed. I am not sure what the mattress was made from, but it wasn't very comfortable. It was some sort of memory foam and was very hot.

"Nice hotel next to beach"
If it was not for the sister hotels next to this property, then it would be a pretty boring place to spend a holiday. Try to reserve a sea view villa, bcs mountain view does not have the best scenery and its also little far away from the lobby and the only restaurant in the compound. In my opinion villas could have been better designed and some furniture in the villa is not of the best quality. Overall its a very good place and hotel staff is great.

"Good hotel overall"
The hotel is located apx 10-15 minutes walking from main shopping center so in an ok area . It's a newer hotel with a great pool and swim up bar. The rooms are nice, clean , and we were upgraded to a better view for free and early check in. My biggest complaints are regarding the service at restaurant during the day as we ordered food and drinks then waited more then 40 minutes and never had anyone check on us well they forgot to put in our order and I kept having to get up to try and get bill from waiter. By the way we were the only people in the restaurant so it was completely empty. At checkout we definitely had issues there with a lot of staff confusion and errors that took us almost an hour to check out and caused a big rush . That being said, the hotel is nice and I would try it again and hope these are just growing pains.

It was a great experience for my wife and I. The ocean view villa definitely brings the best view of phuket from your room. The customer service was excellent as well. Do be aware of mosquitos and other insects coming at night which are attracted by the room's light, keep the doors and windows shut and you'll be fine.

The Shore at Katathani is pure paradise. The pool outside the bedroom is huge; while you are swimming you can watch the sunset and enjoy the most perfect beautiful beach. The food is great, better the Italy!! And the staff is just beautiful. I travelled all my life and the Shore is the perfect place. I will go back as soon as I can!!!

Well worth the money. I felt like royalty staying there! The staff is so cordial and wonderful! The accommodations are spectacular. I had no trouble just making myself comfortable. My only caveat to staying there was the amount of stairs I had to climb to get to my room. That, however, is easily remedied by the ready availability of staff-chauffered golf carts. The beach and the view are straight out of travel magazines... I'm DEFINITELY coming back here in the future!

"Lovely villa with personal plunge pool"
This hotel is clearly focused on delivering a superior customer experience. For the most part it succeeds. The facilities are great and the staff are attentive to needs. Although there did seem to be better service when my husband was with me than when I was alone. The villas are delightful and the service staff there do an excellent job. The bathroom and private plunge pool were fabulous. The bar and dinning facilities at the beachside bar & restaurant were very good. Good choice of European and Thai food with nice wine list. I would go back to this hotel again. Although I would not use the spa again as I did not get the same high quality experience there.

Loved our villa, which was on the lowest level, so easy access to beach and restaurant. View amazing, private pool lovely. Staff all very friendly. I would have liked a little more deck space to lounge in the sun, but the grassed areas and poolside loungers were always available. We used the golf buggy service to take us to the edge of katathani resort then caught a tuk tuk or walked into kata. Kata had a good range of restaurants to try. We stayed in four different places in phuket and the shore was definitely the favourite. Even my husband thought it was worth the money!

"Great resort for a quiet getaway"
Great resort to stay in if you are looking for a quieter location around Phuket. We booked for the garden villa, however we got a free upgrade to the seaview villa. View was breathtaking from our room and the private pool was great. Service provided by the hotel was top notch right from the moment you enter the resort in making you feel welcome and providing you with everything you need during your stay. Resort also provided complimentary high tea every afternoon and room service breakfast on request. Beach is very clean and less populated than the others in Phuket. Definitely worth the money if you are looking for a quiet getaway in Phuket in a nice resort. Location is pretty far from the heart of all the activity in Patong though.

This hotel is amazing, looks exactly like the photos, get a sea view villa, it is very much worth it, we stayed in 8814 which the view was pretty great, but 8813 would be perfect view and not too far up the hill. Staff are all really friendly and helpful they will take you on a buggy down to the main sister resort, and dinner eat at the harbour, their food is great! Get a massage down on the main road, cant remember the name of the place but next to a suit shop and very close walk and the best massage we ever had, and very clean!

"A wonderful week"
We just enjoyed a wonderful week in one of the sea view villas - definitely worth paying the extra for. Very comfortable and you could quite easily lock yourself away in there for the duration of your stay. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a foodie, lunch options are very limited at the hotel, and although you can visit the sister hotel next door, the menus are almost identical so choice/quality is poor. However, for dinner options there are some very good restaurants nearby that do free return pick up, if not the hotel can organise a car for you. Our favourite restaurants were: Mom Tri's, On the Rocks, Kata Rocks restaurant, Boathouse Grill.
