Centara Kata Resort Phuket

Phuket, Thailand

The hotel

For a budget bolthole, Centara Kata Resort has a lot going for it. Its location, range of boldly designed rooms, and family-oriented treats all defy the price tag. This means it’s become a favourite for savvy travellers wanting to see Phuket without paying for all the bells and whistles of the fancier resorts. A small hotel, it sits near the shops and restaurants of central Kata, a free shuttle ride from the white sands of Kata Beach; and that’s what most stay here for. But families spending a day back at base are welcomed with three pools, trimmed with a swim-up bar, Jacuzzi, aqua beds, and water slide, as well as a fitness centre, kids’ club, and all-day Thai and International dining.

Stayed at the Centara Kata Beach Resort in May 2019. As per usual, all staff were lovely and friendly. We ate a number of times in the resort either dinner, snacks or lunch. Food was delicious. Close to a few places for entertainment and you could get the local bus across the road.

Just stayed at this great resort with my girlfriend and our daughters. Our first impression of the resort entrance was that it was slightly outdated but once we were shown our rooms and then we actually got into the resort we were pleasantly surprised. The gardens and pool areas were beautiful; three lovely pools to choose from and one a pool bar which was a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable start to our holiday. We were absolutely impressed by the food choices; the meals were very generous and delicious and fresh. All the staff were absolutely lovely and our favourite was Joy the Resort Assistant Manager who looked after us so well. We only experienced one day of rainy weather and we did a fantastic, fun and delicious Thai Cooking Class at that time. Great Gym facilities but we were disappointed that there wasn’t a Massage or Spa option at the Resort. All was good though as there are plenty of businesses to choose from in the adjacent street. The Resort is conveniently situated next to lots of restaurants and shops plus a 10 minute walk to lovely Kata Beach. Otherwise a short trip on a tuk tuk. Overall a fabulous stay and we would highly recommend this resort! Read less

Really nice hotel, where you immediately feel welcome, short distance to the beach and eateries, but it should be noted that you eat excellent at the hotel. Centrally located by the Kata Night Market. I will no doubt return to the Blue star Centara kata beach.
