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.

My partner and I stayed at the Centara Kata resort in June this year. We would not go there again on the basis of being ripped off at every opportunity. We payed 7000 Baht room deposit from our credit card which they promised would be returned two weeks after the final bill. We spent half of this eating in and drinking at the resort. FYI The "happy hour" specials are not so happy when you realise there's a seperate drinks menu for that time period that is more fifty percent more expensive than usual. If you add the VAT and service fees you're paying Melbourne prices. They were not forth coming with a proper VAT receipt so we could claim it at the airport. The 3700 Baht owing was not returned to us even after emailing them. They also charge two to three times more for tours and try to sell you them before you go out and realise you can get it cheaper over the road. Read less
