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.

Reasonably good but there was a persistent issue in the room with flies / insects and we both suffered from insect bites. Housekeeping staff did their best but the problem was still there right up to time of departure. Staff, on arrival, were very keen to take a refundable deposit, however, on departure, there was no offer of any recompense for the issue encountered with flies / bites. This illustrates a policy of protecting the company finances first and no sense of offering any financial fairness to the customer. Read less

The property is looking a little “tired” but overall our stay was very good. It is a pity there are no elevators, staying on level 3 tested my legs🙂 perhaps I should have requested a lower level room.
