Close to Perfect

Fantastic location with easy access to very clean, uncrowded beach. A little further from airport but perfect sanctuary to avoid crowds yet still within walking distance from Kata or tuk-tuk to Karon and Patong. Great selection of dining options both within resort and close by. Manicured gardens and lots of pools/bars to choose from (some kid free!)
Junior Suites perfect for couples. A little well-loved but clean due to daily service.
Beautiful friendly staff. Overall - 9.5/10. Will be going back!

Brilliant, can't wait to go back!

The resort exceeded our expectations. Such a beautifully kept resort, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was lovely. We will definitely be coming back to stay again.

Happy holiday

We had a restful and happy stay, the staff were great and went above and beyond the call of duty ever expected, we had a phone left in a taxi which was tracked down and returned with a smile many hours after it was lost.
The views were great from our Oceanside room. The location was only a few minutes from the main streets of Kata beach and beyond, so no noisy streets and traffic to disrupt the sound of peace at the resort. Really you do not need to leave this lovely place.
Sunsets, cocktails by the water and a great place to enjoy a holiday.
The only resort we could see on its own private beach and with all the facilities you needed to have a lovely stay.
Just be careful of the beach, can be a bit rough in low season from monsoons, always warm and inviting though.
Definately going back again.

Standard Accommodation

This trip was our third time in Phuket, so we thought we'd try the Katathani Phuket Beach Resort, after reading reviews and seeing it's location. The beach front location is beautiful, there is nothing better than hearing the sound of the waves crashing. The staff are lovely, warm, welcoming and will do anything for you.

Unfortunately, that's where the positivity ended. We stayed in a Grand Suite in the Thani Wing and were 2 adults and 2 children. Upon first inspections the room was clean and had a beautiful view of the ocean. However, you can not open the doors to the balcony to enjoy this view, as the inside of the room gets very wet. The porcelain tiles throughout the entire apartment become very wet and very slippery. The air conditioning could not be turned to warmer, so was freezing during the night. The pillows on the beds needed to be replaced, probably 4 years ago. They were lumpy and had lost any sort of shape or support.

The three restaurants we tried at the resort, left us underwhelmed. The staff at the poolside bar were great and the complimentary banana chips were a nice touch.

Overall, there are far better options in Phuket. After 3 nights of a planned 10 night stay, we moved to the Movenpick Resort, where we stayed the year before. The staff at Travel Online specifically Kimberley Sheldrick and Michelle McGregor, and Jonothan at the Katathani were all amazing at accommodating our request to move resorts. We were charged 1 nights cancellation fee, which I thought was completely reasonable under the circumstances.

Overall a good venue to stay and enjoy Phuket.

Food in general for breakfast was very good, however the night that we ate at Chom Talay Roast night was very poor. The beef wellington that i was served was minus the beef, pastry and pate only. Price for meal was double what we paid for outside of the venue, of course not the same menu, but value for money, overpriced for what we had for dinner given the quality.
The buffet meals that we selected were all nearing cold and as a result thought that they may not be as food is served at a minimum temperature. My wife and I ran a B&B for 12 years and our food handling training maintained food to be hot, not bordering on cold.
We found this to be the same on all of the buffet meals that were part of packages, a little daunting when chicken and rice are 2 items where food can spoil.

Ground and surrounds and the beach were great, very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Nice relaxing week

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, spacious and clean. There was plenty to do for the kids with the new water playground recently opened and other activities at the kids club. The beach and pools where also nice and clean. The food quality was average and we also had a bit of an issue with the noise level next door. It seems that the room next to us was being renovated and we had called front desk about it but never heard back from them. The noise did stop after a few days.
We will probably come back to this resort again.

Paradise

We stayed in a Sea View suite at Katathani for 6 nights in June 2017,we arrived late at night and were checked in smoothly and had no idea what to expect until we opened the curtains the next morning. Wow is all I can say, we were on the 2nd floor overlooking the main pool and the ocean, the room was large and had a very comfy king size bed, fridge and TV. Buffet breakfast included in the price and it was just fabulous, many options to choose from, even a childrens section. I loved the coffee machine where you could make your own latte's, coffee is a big thing for me first thing in the morning and this didn't disappoint. The one thing that did annoy me in this day and age is the Wi-fi not being available in the rooms free of charge, I really don't understand why a resort of this standard could not offer it, a small thing and overall a really wonderful stay.

Excellent Resort

Stayed many places in Phuket, however this Resort has the best location,on the beautiful beach of Kata Noi
The hotel itself has many restaurants and pools, with a new kids water park attached to the kids club which is great .
All rooms are good and well maintained and presented
I would recommend this Resort to families or
Couples .... you won't be disappointed .

Great place to relax

Katathani is a great place to relax, Beautiful beach and pools, And many massage ladies to look after you.
Rooms are nice, A little dated but nice and clean.
Food is also nice and reasonable prices.
Kids club is non existent, Needs to be looked at, It's more like a supervised playground rather than a kids club, If they could get the Kids club right many more families would go to Katathani.
Overall a very nice Resort, If you are not travelling with kids, I strongly recommend you try The Shores section of the Katathani, It's kids free and the rooms and restaurant are fantastic.

Perfect!

I attended a family wedding at the Resort which was very professionally done and lovely. A perfect venue. While the resort is very large, it somehow maintains an intimate feel. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would love to go back.

A beautiful hotel in a lovely location

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Katathani Beach Resort. One of the best things is its location. The exclusive Kata Noi Beach is clean and safe, far superior from the larger and polluted Kata Beach. The resort is beautiful, well maintained and very hygienic. Breakfast was great especially the freshly made omelettes and the staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed in a Grand Suite on the top floor with spectacular ocean views and a good size for a family of 4. Outside the hotel are a number of restaurants which are very good value for money and provided quality meals. I wouldn't hesitate in going back to Katathani.

Fantastic, relaxing, memorable stay in a wonderful resort.

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.

Relaxing stay

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.

3rd time visit and will go again!

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!

Lovely holiday in upmarket, quiet end of Kata beach.

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.

Great location but hotel looking tired and becoming expensive

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.

Relaxation, relaxation, & relaxation

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!!

Best location in Phuket

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 ??

Relaxing and very comfortable stay. Best holiday ever! Staff amazing and so pleasant.

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.

Did not want to leave!!

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!

A very relaxing stay in a beautiful location

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.

Possibly the best overall package resort on the island. Great beach, great location, good services.
