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!

Stayed here for 3 weeks for the sandbox program. Let's get the bad part out of the way. The rooms need some maintenance at least the two rooms that I stayed. I had to change the room twice because of some maintenance-related issues. Eventually they upgraded me to one of the nicest rooms by the third time. The room interior seems dated from the design perspective but it's not a major dealbreaker for me. Now the good parts. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. The location is beach front providing a direct access to Kata Noi beach which is one of the best beaches in Phuket IMHO. I feel more like staying at a private beach than a public beach. The best part of the hotel is its staff. They are very nice and ready to help with any of your requests. I wanted to give them proper credit. Breakfast is plentiful and more than enough. Resort facilities are very decent - multiple gyms, pools, recreation rooms, etc. The beach bar is perfect for watching the sunset as the hotel faces west. Overall, I enjoy staying here for more than 3 weeks despite the unfortunate room incidents. I do think the hotel needs some maintenance or renovation in order to be competitive with other hotels in phuket area. Equipment in the room needs update such as TV, fridge, coffee makers, etc. They remind me of the 90's. However, I would recommend staying at this hotel given the location, the beach, its staff and the price. Read less

The hotel is located at a beautiful bay with a nice clean beach. All facilities are very well maintained and there are more than enough pools so it will not be overcrowded. Kids club and aqua play were the highlight for our small ones. Special thanks to K. Pla for taking such good care. Our daughters miss you already. See you soon again!

Great staff, great facilities, great location. I came during sandbox and recommend anyone to come, it is worth the effort.

Great staff, great facilities, great location. I came during sandbox and recommend anyone to come, it is worth the effort. The breakfast is good quality, however after about a week it becomes boring because it is the same each day. I suggest that scrambled eggs are offered on some days instead of fried egg, porridge is offered on some days instead of cornflakes and hash browns are offered on some days instead of sausage. This is however a small problem. Read less

We came here during phuket sandbox.. still here currently and can’t understand the 1 star reviews While it is very quiet due to covid restrictions entering thailand, and the staff have a lot of time… they make a HUGE effort- every one of them The service is impeccable. Any requests fulfilled within minutes to the room.. you can even choose pillows and mattress comfort level The room is spotless, maintained really well. The beach is cleaned twice a day… everything is great Make the effort to do the sandbox you wont regret feeling well looked after in near empty resort. The massages are fair price, food standard for good hotel- high for Thailand.. but no surprise to be expected. Its absolutely beautiful.. thanks so much Read less

COVID measurement: The safety organization of Katathani is excellent. The hotel makes sure that all the guests check-in with the Morchana application every day. They make a follow-up call to each guest if someone's name is not on the list. I feel so safe here. All of the staff wear masks all the time. I have never seen anyone having the mask below… Read more
COVID measurement: The safety organization of Katathani is excellent. The hotel makes sure that all the guests check-in with the Morchana application every day. They make a follow-up call to each guest if someone's name is not on the list. I feel so safe here. All of the staff wear masks all the time. I have never seen anyone having the mask below their nose during my stay. The staffs are very polite and helpful. The service price of massage, hairdresser, or food is not overpricing. Guests can have everything during their stay in the hotel. Breakfast main is changed every day. Never get bored. During July - Aug, the sea is rough. There are still 2/14 days that the hotel put a yellow sign on the beach. Guests are allowed to go into the sea under full attention from hotel lifeguards. With 3 pools in front of rooms, guests never risk being too near to each other. One thing that guests should be aware of is all the rooms in the hotel are fully protected from sunlight by the coconut trees. Since all the rooms are next to the sea, the floor is always wet.
