Katathani Phuket Beach Resort

Phuket, Thailand

The hotel

In a secluded bay, overlooking a beach regarded as the most beautiful on Phuket, this is certainly an idyllic holiday choice. Soft golden sand to glide along, sunsets to admire, and, of course, beautiful accommodation, ranging from Junior Suites to those set back amongst trees and tropical flowers. Ideal for families as well as couples and groups of friends, spend the day lazing by the poolside – there are six to choose from – whilst the kids splash about in their own pool (they’ve got four!) Pampering pursuits include a full-service spa and a beauty salon, ensuring you look and feel your best. As well as lots of sports activities you can get involved in more cultural endeavours, take a Thai cooking class and learn how to carve those fancy fruit decorations or enjoy a workout whilst learning the art of Thai boxing. As we’ve said, this hotel is great for the youngsters too – whilst parents are busy snoozing under the shade of an umbrella, kids can head to their own private club, getting stuck into activities such as balloon painting, necklace making, clay sculpting and much much more. Finally, a word about those restaurants, there are several to choose from, serving Thai and Western delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s also La Scala for Italian cuisine and light music, plus several beach bars for an enticing tropical cocktail!

We choose this resort for our kids and we didn't make mistake in our choice. The resort is very big and the beach is beautiful. There are 7 pools and we were accommodated in Bhuri wing which is made for families. There are 4 pools and one of them is aqua park which is very modern and also there is the kids club which is very good. We were very happy with the room which is renovated and big. Staff are good trained and the service was very good. Restaurants in the resort are nice and the food is tasty and you can also go to some other restaurants that are very closed to the hotel. We are family that travels a lot and we visit a lot of 5 star resorts and this is definitely one of them and you will not make any mistake. At the end unfortunately we need to a short our stay because of the Corona virus situation in our country and the reservation agreed to refound amount of this last day and this was very nice of them.

We stayed in the thani wing in a lovely oceanfront room. We had fantastic views from our balcony across the bay. The bed was very comfortable and all the facilities were modern and well kept. The grounds are beautifully kept with staff continually working to ensure they stay in pristine condition. The lake area is beautiful especially when lit at night. There are masses of sunbeds around the pool areas and on the grass overlooking the trees. The sea was rougher than anywhere else we had been in Thailand with quite strong waves at times. The breakfast was good with plenty of coffee or tea. We had one evening meal with thai entertainment and the choice of food was extensive. The rest of the time we ate at the restaurants outside where there was a good selection. The staff were very effecient and made sure we had a good time. If you want a typical thai place to stay this is not the place for you but if you want a lovely beachfront resort with plenty of faciities, comfort and style then come and stay here. Read less

We were back for 2nd visit after 5 years, the resort is still as beautiful! Words can’t say enough! 1. Resort, beach and surrounding areas The trees, plants and lawn are immaculately maintained with scheduled mowing limited to specific days of the week/time of the day to minimise noise to resort guests. We see many improvements made to the resort - common furnitures at restaurants replaced with newer ones, new benches were added, beautiful orchids were added to branches of some trees. The numerous coconut trees swaying in the breeze were very calming and relaxing. The beach is so beautiful and the sea water is crystal clear!! We saw some fishes in the water near the rocks. 2. Room We especially loved the recently refurbished Thani wing Junior Suite at the Andaman Building where we stayed - the carpentry works, floors and toilet walls were decked out in calming hues of white/cream while both room and toilet were both bright and airy. Aircon in the room works very well, with 3 fan-speeds to efficiently cool the room. There’s even an electric aromatherapy burner in the room! The sliding balcony doors comes with a switch that automatically switches off the aircon when balcony doors are opened or left ajar. Toilets come with bathtub and separate shower, and rain shower works very well! Housekeeping is quick and efficient - the room and toilet was kept clean at all times. Our only complain - the wooden laminate floor is uneven at certain parts of the room, possibly due to water damage. 3. Pool and other facilities There are 6 pools in the resort to cater to all needs, with one pool reserved exclusively for adults and signs placed prominently placed to remind guests to keep noise levels down. All are very well-maintained and clean. The clubhouse comes with games (air hockey, ps4 etc) for children in a separate room within the clubhouse which keeps the noise out from the main area. There are computer terminals with printer available for use. 4. Food and restaurants/bar We only tried 3 out of the at least 6 restaurants, and one of the 4 bars. Food are all good, but some prices are on the high side (burger with fries at the bar costs Thb400+!). We love the Melon Minimart which has everything you need from a convenience store plus iced coffee, tea, smoothie and cakes with a little sitting corner! 5. Staff and Service Staff from this resort are wonderful! Always there to help guests with a smile. Read less

Great location on Kata Noi Beach about 80 minutes south of the airport (take a Grab which is nearly 20 USD less expensive than taking a ripoff cab service, or arrange a car through the hotel). Excellent location for families. Couples were there too and seemed to be having a good time. It's a sprawling complex on both sides of Kata Noi Road. One side is directly on the beach and the other, Kata 2, is just down the road on the opposite side. Excellent layout with six pools (we only ever made it to 3 of them) and it's perfect for kids. There are waterslides and kids water play areas at one of the beachside pools by the restaurant serving breakfast and the other just across the road with a baby pool, slides, and spray obstacles. Kids of all ages having a great time. The kids club was great for dropping kids in to play (usually runs from about 1000-1800 daily) while adults went for a drink or took a break. Rooms were perfect for the beach, and beach/pool towels with carrying bags were provided and replenished during the day as needed. Didn't make it to all the restaurants, but selection overall was fine with mostly western/Russian style options and some Thai dishes as well. Seafood restaurants looked nice, but wasn't the best for bringing kids to. There's a 7-11 right by the complex and a few small restaurants and massage places as well. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, there weren't many tourists there. The majority were Russian with a few Aussies, Brits and Americans in between. Pretty relaxed crowd overall. Kata Noi Beach was nice too with a swimming area and a beach chair rental area. Have to provide special thanks to the reservations staff for working with us to modify the reservation after the COVID-19 problem led to flight cancellations and rescheduling. They worked with us to change the dates and even provided a special discount. Great professional courtesy and understanding on the resort's part and it was very much appreciated. Highly recommend this resort. Read less
