Had an amazing time at Katathani - I will DEFINITELY be back.
We have just returned from our 3rd wonderful stay at the Katathani Phuket Beach Resort, and cant wait for the day to return once again.
Our family, with 2 boys, stayed in two connecting poolside rooms in the Bhuri wing. Despite other reports, we love this side of the resort, and have stayed on this side on each occassion. It is, IMO, the better side of the resort. We find that it is quieter, not as crowded around the pool, and Breakfast in the Seacret restaurant is definitely not as noisy or busy. It is still close enough to the beach, restaurants, and other pools (should you wish to move around).
The rooms are beautifully presented, and we couldn't fault the housekeeping during our 8 night stay. There is plenty of room, they are tastefully decorated, and well laid out. The bathrooms are clean and tidy with good water pressure and temperature.
The grounds and pools are immaculately maintained, with a lot of pride and effort going into maintaining them.
The food has always been of high quality and well priced - the breakfast buffet is varied and plentiful with lots of choices (love the made to order omelettes). There are plenty of options for dinner also. The Seaside Pizza cafe is great, one of the best pizzas I have had - full of flavour and not at all oily.
We love that The Katathani are always updating and adding to this fantastic resort, and it is great to see the changes each time we return. This year we enjoyed the new Joy Zone in the Bhuri wing. This is a great set up, a nice place to hang out and have a drink, while the kids are playing and having fun.
There is plenty to do in and around the resort. The games rooms are fantastic. We had fun at the Frog Races.
The staff are what make the resort so memorable. They are always fabulous, welcoming, and friendly, and more than happy to assist in any way.
The Katathani has, for us, set a benchmark and expectation for which all other stays are measured against. We have travelled around many areas of Thailand, including several stays in Phuket, Khao Lak, and Krabi areas. We always finish our trip with a stay at the Katathani. We keep on returning as we know we wont be disappointed. My wife said that when we come around the back streets of Kata, up over the hill into Kata Noi she feels a sense of relaxation and being "at home" - I think that sums it up. We love the warm welcome back that we receive. We love our time at the Katathani. We couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thank you so much for another memorable holiday, and we look forward to visiting again soon. Thank you too to travelonline for the fantastic deal on the accommodation, which made it all possible.
Just returned from an amazing 7 nights at the Katathani with my husband and 2 children - 8 and 6. Resort was perfect for young families with 4 large pools across the resort and a beatiful beach perfect for young children to play and catch waves. All dining venues were great inside the resort including a great pizza restaurant that did cheap takeaway pizza for you to eat at one of the beach bars during the evening happy hour. There are approx 6 restaurants in the quiet street where the resort is located to add to your restaurant choices all you can catch a tuk tuk over the hill to Kata for 200Baht each way or 300 Baht to Karon. Resort has lots of activities to keep the kids occupied including great pools, a large games room and outdoor chess games. Resort has free kids club which we used for an hour here or there but nothing to rave about - kids were bored quite quickly but good option when you need them to have a break from the pool.
Staff were very friendly, room very clean although the furniture a little worn. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Would visit again.
Resort was great, service at the resort was first rate. All the staff were super helpful and very friendly. Rooms were lovely with great views. We used 4 out of 5 pools and all were clean and beautiful. Food in the resort was average except for breakfast, but restaurants outside the resort and nearby are excellent and very cheap.
The best family holiday experience you could wish for.
When they say "Welcome to the shores of serenity" that's the perfect description of the resort, peaceful and relaxing.
Our teenage daughters were completely safe to swim and explore the resort on their own. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping markets on your doorstep.
We have visited 3 times and will be going back again!
This was our 3rd stay at Katathani the junior sweet facing the ocean is fantastic,the grounds are beautiful great friendly service and the food in the restaurants is very good, will return next year for the 4th year in a row, love it.
Resort gardens are immaculately maintained and the view from our room was superb
Room however needed to be inspected for minor problems ie sticking doors.
This being our 2nd visit, we noticed that it appears to be now geared towards Asian guests., especially the breakfasts.
We have been here before and enjoyed our stay - great facilities and service. However we noticed this time that the hotel is looking tired and run down and the cost of food/drinks/service is increasing, the beach sand was bee clean but the water was full of rubbish. Won't be rushing back.
We're already planning our next trip
Beautiful clean and blue beach. Room and buffet breakfast were average at best. Taxis charge more than required as you have no other choice but to walk a while to anything.
A great resort for a family holiday. Close enough to get the feeling of Phuket but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Patong and Kata. The beach here is beautiful with few hawkers trying to sell, ocean is clear and nice to swim in, be careful of the rips, and they have a lifeguard on duty. Lots of different pools to enjoy if you don't want to venture far from the resort. Staff always friendly and obliging. Food is okay in resort, they do have a few places just outside for eating and generally very good. Overall highly recommended for a flop and drop, do nothing holiday!!
Great resort on the best beach in the area - but it is the staff that make this resort.
Katathani is a 4* resort with a 5* location...the grounds are wonderful and very well kept..staff are always smiling and friendly. Their buffet breakfast is one of the best we've ever experienced. This is our fourth time there and we love opening the curtains every morning and seeing ocean, sand and palm trees staring back at us ??
This is the 2nd time our family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) have stayed at this resort in 5 years and we would go back again! It's relaxing and love that you can go out of the complex and there are other options around, ie. restaurants, laundry is able to be washed and folded for next day pickup at very low cost which is fantastic! Only 20 minutes by tuktuk or airconditioned car to main shopping in Patong or 5-10 mins from Kata & Karon for huge choice of restaurants.
Food was great, loved the beach so close, room was newly renovated so paint fumes quite bad but staff happily accommodated us and helped make more comfortable.
location is good too.
I loved the location of this resort -away from the hustle and bustle - but still only a short tuk tuk ride away from the action
My partner and myself found the Katathani to be exceptional, we had a fantastic time.
All the staff were so attentive and helpful, full of smiles and nothing was ever an issue. The grounds to the resort were always being maintained and looked picture perfect. Room was fantastic with clear views of the beautiful blue ocean from the bedroom. Great options of food in the restaurants, and plenty more options outside the front of the resort. It is going to be hard to find a place that beats this one!
This is the second time we've stayed at the Katathani. It is a lovely resort for families and the beach is in a quiet part of Phuket but still close to a town. Ideal location really. Seas were rough when we were there this time but in the past the beach has been the highlight for us. It isn't a 5 star resort but met our needs perfectly.
Our 2nd stay and we enjoyed it as much as the first time.
Possibly the best overall package resort on the island. Great beach, great location, good services.
Not to far from the action but far enough away to feel comfortable with your family. Highly recommend if you are traveling to Phuket.
Great location on clean surf beach..
Great place to chill and relax. Very family friendly. Staff are very accommodating
Excellent place to stay ticks the box for all aspects.
Fantastic location, great place to relax and swim in one of the pools or beach
This resort is outstanding. Beautiful beach, immaculate gardens. clean and comfortable rooms. great restaurants, lots for the kids to do, great swimming pools and very helpful and friendly staff. massages, manicures and pedicures available while relaxing around the pool. Would definitely go back again its a paradice.
Great place to stay missing being there already .
Kind staff nothing to much trouble all done with a
great smile. Good food and drinks and lovely pools
and grounds to laze in comfort. We would love to go back again
We went in September and found the weather perfect and the resort quiet while still close to everything needed. The whole holiday far exceeded expectations. This resort is perfect for couples, familys or weddings. One of the few places that has great beach frontage.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would stay
there again if the opportunity arises. Impeccable
service by dedicated staff.
A great resort. Really happy with the service. Great location with a great beach front.
This is one of the few points that you can relax and enjoy without crowd.
After 2 nights we paid to upgrade to the beach view side and it was wonderful.
