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!

The Katathani takes up the entire Kata noi Beach and I guess that is its strength. One of the nicest beaches on the island. Staying during Covid gives a different impression to normal times, over Xmas an occupancy of just 14% when normally would be 100%.So beach and pools to yourself but would not enjoy the hotel when full.

The Katathani takes up the entire Kata noi Beach and I guess that is its strength. One of the nicest beaches on the island. Staying during Covid gives a different impression to normal times, over Xmas an occupancy of just 14% when normally would be 100%.So beach and pools to yourself but would not enjoy the hotel when full. Right now catering to Thais and this is reflected in the poor Western breakfast but told the Thai selection was good. Had a surprisingly good meal at the Italian but not so impressed with the fisherman's grill, when I asked for the wine list was told only 1 red and 1 white available!!! I chose the white a nasty Italian chardonnay. Now onto the room(ocean front suite) I asked for ground floor believing it would have direct access to the beach but not the case as no exit from terrace unless you jump the fence. The rooms are looking tired definately need upgrading. The staff were very good a special mention for khun Paki at F&B Read less

I fully agree with the positive comments posted by some contributors to Trip Advisor....a scenic resort, great service by proactive staff,spacious rooms with magnificent views of the sea if you are staying in one of the ocean facing rooms coupled with a choice of swimming pools. As we were there during the Covid period, some restaurants were closed and recreational facilities not functioning.Food and beverage prices in the resort are relatively higher than restaurants in town. However the hotel operates a small supermarket within its premises where beverages and alcoholic drinks are sold at reasonable prices.Food at the Mango restaurant? which was located next to the beach was ok. But the same cannot be the said of the breakfast buffet.The choice of food especially western cuisine was limited and blend which is not the usual standard of food served in 4 star hotels. Read less

Without a doubt the worst breakfast I have ever seen! At any price point. The style reminds me of a 1970s style banquet. They don’t have any cold cuts ( only processed cheese from 7/11). No fresh juices, no homemade baked pastries absolutely nothing you would except from even 3 star hotel even. Had some pasta in their Italian, after asking if… Read more
Without a doubt the worst breakfast I have ever seen! At any price point. The style reminds me of a 1970s style banquet. They don’t have any cold cuts ( only processed cheese from 7/11). No fresh juices, no homemade baked pastries absolutely nothing you would except from even 3 star hotel even. Had some pasta in their Italian, after asking if the seafood was fresh - you could tell right away that it was frozen. Everything food wise in this place is a let down. From start to finish. Absolutely zero...!! It’s a shame because the staff are very good, the facilities well maintained and the location is stunning. Read less
