Katathani Phuket Beach Resort

Phuket, Thailand

Virgin rating

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!

I spent a week at the Katathani Resort and it was absolutely amazing. We had a Beachfront suite which I loved as it was at the edge of the resort meaning it was a bit quieter/more relaxing. The room had everything we needed and the beds were very comfy, I had very good night sleeps. Breakfast was amazing.It was a buffet with everything from fruit to cereal to sushi. There are a few pools (family and an adult), my one pointer would be that the adult pool is right next to the kids pool and sometimes the kids would come and splash around the adult pool which was a bit frustrating at times as it specifically said quiet adult pool but due to the pools being next to each other it is hard to keep them completely seperate. The Coconut bar was right near the adult pool and I loved the happy hour as the cocktails were very cheap and amazingly made. I would also recommend getting a poolside massage, they are a bit cheaper outside of the resort but I personally preferred the ones inside the resort as the ladies were very nice and did great massages. I would say however that at times they would laugh and chat to each other whilst giving their massages but it didn't ultimately make a difference. The service from the staff was amazing, they were very helpful with anything you needed to ask. They were always smiling and greeted you whenever you walked past. On my birthday they even brought me a cake which was sweet. The resort is perfect for any travellers but I would definitely say it is more a family resort. The resort itself is quite far from a lot of places that people would want to see but the transport isn't very expensive. We used an app called Bolt which is much cheaper than the taxis it is like Uber. I would definitely return to this resort again. Read less

Friendliest staff (especially breakfast and bellboys). Great breakfast. Great restaurants in the resort, especially expensive but great Italian restuarant. Lovely beach but the surf can be rough. Need to have medical information available. Front staff bit officious. Bit of walk to town. The bus to town is to malls, not old Phuket.

This is my 3rd stay at this fabulous hotel. Great for families, super beachfront rooms, many pools to choose from. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I have been coming here with my family over the years. Some ok restaurants outside the hotel. Nothing very good. It's best to rent bike/car which gives you wheels to move anywhere anytime and gives you the flexibility especially with family. The massage by the poolside is a must and so relaxing. A little bit more expensive than the parlors outside the hotel, but worth it with the outdoor ambience. The hotel as we speak is undergoing renovation. Some rooms are looking a bit tired and need a bit of sprucing up. Breakfast is the elaborate and as expected of all 5 star hotels. Patong us about a 20 min drive from the hotel, so easily accessible. There is also a hotel shuttle in the evenings to Patong. All in all, I will be back here again and again, I love the laid back feel to the place. Read less
