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 stayed here for 3 weeks in January 22 and had a very relaxing break. We had a room in Thani Wing which are good sized rooms with a comfortable balcony.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in January 22 and had a very relaxing break. We had a room in Thani Wing which are good sized rooms with a comfortable balcony. The beds are so big that our 3 year old shared our bed rather than turning the sofa into another bed. The staff here were consistantly helpful and friendly which is of course a bit of a trade mark for Thailand generally. Being there for 3 weeks meant many staff got to know us a bit and were always welcoming. There are at least 7 pools so plenty of space to lay out, as well as all the lawned landscaping throughout the resort. The kids pool was very popular with our young daughter and most days had to include a visit to it. There is a kids club beside the childrens pool that is also good for giving toddlers an hour or tow of distraction. The beach is just stunning and becuase of its location it is almost deserted all the time. As the bay is somewhat sheltered the sea is lovely and clear and when the tide is out you can wade out quite a way before it gets deep. Sunsets are amazing and many were spent with a cold beer at the pool bar. The Fishermans restaurant was a popular lunch time haunt for us, we ate in the Italian and Thai restaurants too which were good. The only let down on the food front was the Buffet nights, which apart from New Years Eve which was amazing, was otherwise very average. That said there are endless dining options within a few minutes of the hotel for all budgets. The Boathouse and Mums Kitchen are both excellent choices for a romantic evening and many others close by. The rooms are not to a five star standard in finishing but are equally very comfortable and fine for what is essentially a beach holiday. We have already booked to go back there for Easter this year!. Read less

Our stay at the Katathani Resort was Excellent food , staff , location was great the only negative was I think the rooms need an update for it to be 5 star Hotel. The restaurants were great and we stayed with full board witch means we didn't have to pay for any meals and could dine at all the restaurants free I would highly recommend it.

Amazing location, one of the best in Phuket. Super friendly staff and good facilities. Rooms are comfortable, but technology in room is in need of an upgrade. The Thai in the resort restaurant is one of the best we've been too... Delicious 😋

This hotel has stunning grounds. So many pools and space for everyone and right on a gorgeous beach. Kids club and kids pools are great for kids and the babysitter we were provided was also fantastic. Housekeeping and general cleanliness was perfect. Only complaint is that room service never answered the phone so you cannot rely on ordering in.… Read more
This hotel has stunning grounds. So many pools and space for everyone and right on a gorgeous beach. Kids club and kids pools are great for kids and the babysitter we were provided was also fantastic. Housekeeping and general cleanliness was perfect. Only complaint is that room service never answered the phone so you cannot rely on ordering in. Otherwise I highly recommend this resort. The staff were lovely and I saw them constantly dealing with customers with all sorts of demands. Many many rude Russians at the hotel who push at the lobby and do not consider other guests. The staff are saints for putting up with their rudeness. Read less
