I checked in late around 23:00, but it's ok. unfortunately, I couldn't get pool access room but they offer free dinner and breakfast for us. There is a few thai staff. There is 1 foreigner staff to speak with foreigner customer but for Thai who can't speak english, it's not comfortable to speak with. This resort fits to couple only.... More

From the time we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed with warm smiles and courteous service. the room was everything that we expected and we loved the fact that we could sit on the patio and just slip into the pool when we fancied a dip. The hotel only has 65 rooms so it was quiet with no noisy... More

Comfortable room with good aircon, modern open plan bathroom, ground floor room with direct pool access was stunning. Staff extremely hospitable and friendly, decorated our room for anniversary and birthday, brought me a cake and sang to me. It was really special. Swimming pool water could be a little cooler. Buffet breakfast adequate. Perfect location amidst restaurants, bars, markets. Wifi... More

We recently stayed at Romantica for our honeymoon. It was perfect! From check in to check out the staff at Romantica exceeded our expectations! We checked in 1/11/16 for 11 nights. The gentleman working made sure we knew what every light switch did, where all of the amenities were located and helped us get our bags. Every room has a... More

NEGATIVES: The deafening music which blared out at 8am sharp each morning.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at this hotel, we were a group of 3 couples staying in the pool access deluxe rooms! We honestly couldn't find fault with this hotel, everything was a really high standard and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Would definitely recommend for couples and would also say it's worth paying extra... More

Had the same experience as some other reviews, where we booked the pool access room but they had overbooked, so we ended up in a normal room for the first night.

I had the most wonderful time at Chanalai Romantica. The staff (and the poolfront rooms) are really what make this THE place in Kata Beach. It is well located, and surprisingly isolated from the noise on the street. Mr Golf, the restaurant manager, knew our names from day 1 and ensured our stay was just fantastic. Many of the other...
