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. 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. 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!

Accommodation was great, prices in the beach resort were higher than surrounding facilities. Staff are all fabulous and helpful. Such is the heat that sunbathing is almost dangerous. Consider trips to surrounding places to break up your time. Surrounding resorts easy and cheap to get to.

As someone who has avoided the” all inclusive” thing for most of her life, two kids and middle age got the best of me and we booked the Katathani. The hotel facilities were great- lots of pools, a few restaurants and even massage ladies walking around the grounds, the only buzz kill was the paper booklet that had to be taken everywhere to be marked off each time you ate & drank (not sure if this was just a luxury escapes thing or a hotel-wide policy?). However, after a bit of getting used to, it didn’t ruin the holiday! The kids club was probably suited to younger kids (ours are 8 & 9) however, there was usually an activity that took their fancy each day which meant a few hours of kid-free time and we still got to spend most of the day together. The hotel had a lot of staff and all requests were actioned quickly. The beach was probably one of the best I’ve been to in Phuket and runs the entire length of the resort. The area around the resort is quiet in comparison but you can take a 5 min taxi ride to Kata for more action if you require it. Overall I would say I was pleasantly surprised by the Katathani! So much so that I would book again! 4 stars only due to the paper booklet otherwise would have been 4.5! Read less

Outstanding place! The people are super friendly and helpful. Facilities are A1. Many places to eat and numerous pools to relax around. Plenty of daybeds too so everyone can use. We have the poolside room and would totally recommend these rooms.

Great resort enjoyed our stay at kata noi, —interesting that families with youngish children used the main pool instead of the pools with all the children's equipment in, as the main pool was deep so hence they were around the steps and in the spa so access at times was difficult But all in all, that was the only thing that wasn't great.

This was our 8th trip to the Katathani and first time back since Covid. I was nervous to see what the hotel would be like again but it is better than I could remember. As always the staff were wonderful and it was great to see so many familiar faces. The hotel has amazing facilities and the grounds are beautiful. The breakfast buffet was a delight each morning and we really enjoyed the fisherman’s restaurant for a lovely meal. The gym was great with decent A/C and the pools were lovely. We had sundowners at the coconut bar a couple of the nights. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the hotel as well as places to get laundry done and shops for bits and pieces. Overall we had an amazing time and would recommend to families alike. Read less
