Our family of 4 and another family of 4 just spent 6 nights here. Absolutely loved the gardens (even if they attracted the mozzies), they were very pretty and lush providing lots of privacy. The pools were gorgeous and having 2 (3rd adults only) to choose from was great as we followed the shade. Rooms are good value for money.... More

Our room was on the top floor with no lifts, however room was OK. Pool was great when the slide was working, Had plenty of activities but never ran when scheduled, so our... More

My partner and I stayed at the Centara Kata Resort for 7 days in early April '14 and definitely enjoyed our time there. The location was absolutely perfect for us, lots of restaurants and stores just down the street and around the corner, as well as Kata Beach which is about a 15 minute walk, or the hotel provides a...

From the time we checked in here the staff could not have been nicer. We were checked in sitting in reception with a welcome drink and hot towels which were very lovely. We had been on a ferry from Krabi and were a bit shattered. All check in details were looked after by a lovely staff member and then we... More

We stayed at Centara Kata for a couple of weeks in late March and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this resort. The staff and service were excellent and we had a great outlook to the "Waves" pool from our ground floor room. The walk to both the northern and southern ends of Kata Beach wasn't too difficult (about... More

IT is located in the center of Kata but not on the beach. Hotel has free bus to take you to the beach in every 30min. Almost every room has pool view. Mostly the client here is family with children and scandinavian. Stuff is nice and helpful. For kids here is lot of activity.
