“Perfect in Paradise....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I really wanted an extra star to click when rating the Shore... 6* all the way!
Really the most wonderful hotel and simply perfect for a Honeymoon... My husband and I spent 10 nights here 20 Nov - 1 Dec and we couldnt have booked a more perfect place to start married life. The attention to detail at the hotel really made it very special. We stayed in a 1 bed Sea View Villa - 8892 Turtle Alley and it was more than I could have imagined. The little wooden turtles that you put out for dnd or come in and clean, the best mosquito spray i have ever used left in little bottles in the bathroom (always replenished and better than any jungle formula), the poems left out with roses or chocolates at night and the rooms being decorated every few days with flowers and petals.... The breakfast laid out on your terrace every morning and the sheer quantity of food they would bring, the HUGE beds and soft sheets, the extensive and up to date CD library for those rainy days/nights, the jasmine bracelets on arrival, the rooms being sprayed every few days to get rid of bugs and mosquitos (I was not bitten once all trip in the hotel - a first for me in 20 years), comfortable sun beds poolside, big rattan sofas at the bar for evening cocktails, and excellent food from both the bar and room service.... I really couldnt find a single fault with the Shore, its perfect in paradise...
Each one of the staff were genuinely there to help and always with a smile - Mimi and Jai the porters would take us to our room in the golf carts when ever we needed to as we were right at the top of the hill and its quite a walk in the heat!! (And after one too many very well made cocktails in the Harbour Bar!). The staff at reception were amazing too - Noah and Austin were very sweet guys and helped us late one night with an unwelcome spider (well, you are in Thailand!!)
If you have booked it - well done you wont regret it and if you are pondering it, just book it!!

We loved the Shore and hope to return in the future.

Room Tip: 8892 Turtle Alley - right at the top of the hill but nice and secluded!!

The Shore at Katathani is a really nice property with an extremely friendly staff. The Sea View Pool Villas are amazing. If you can, try to get 8861, which is off in the lower corner; it has an wonderful view of the beach and sea and feels totally isolated, because you have no other villa to your left, and you cannot see the villa to your right. To be honest, I could have happily skipped the Phuket tours and trips into Patong and Phuket Town, and just lounged in our room!

Yes, this place is a bit pricy, relative to other properties, but the combination of the Sea View, your private pool, and the wonderfully friendly staff makes it totally worth it!

Room Tip: Choose 8861...Isolated feel, Great View of the sea and beach. The night view of the sea with the lig...

We stayed here for 5 days and it was wonderful. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to stay here because it was away from Patong and a little quieter. You can get to Patong easy enough- and we did actually go there twice and had a blast.

We stayed in an ocean view villa with plunge pool. We had a view of the ocean below. The room itself is very spacious with an incredible bathroom! There was a wonderful claw foot soaking tub which we unfortunately didn't use, but we made plenty of use of the great shower with wonderful smelling body wash.
I loved the fact that the sliding doors folded back all the way so you can experience the open air and listen to the ocean.
We spent a lot of time out on the deck. We had our buffet breakfast each morning on the cushy sofa.
Speaking of the breakfast, wow! They come to the room with a stack of baskets and lay everything out beautifully. We had eggs, fruit, pastries, juice, coffee. the Works. We loved it. We lounged and had a leisurely breakfast as we skyped our son back at home.

The villa had plenty of storage for clothing. We had plenty of luggage and clothing and there was enough room for everything.
When you enter your villa, there is a little foyer with slipper and these carved turtles to put outside if you want your room made up or if you want privacy.

Each day the room was serviced, and we had clean towels and fresh linens. The twisted a towel into different shapes and laid it on the bed.

We enjoyed lounging around by the pool deck. The chaise lounges were very comfortable. The staff was always walking around offering cold towels or a cold drink. The beach was a few steps below and it was nice. Beware though the sun is strong! When we first arrived it was slightly overcast. We quickly put on our suits and ran outside for less than half an hour. Stupid me, didn't think I needed sunblock. Boy was I wrong! I got very badly burned and it hurt but I sucked it up and enjoyed myself anyway. Funny thing is I am of latin descent and my fiancee is a pale as you can get and I get the sunburn! Go figure!

I did get a nice aloe treatment at the spa to help with the sunburn!

We had a very nice time at this hotel and Phuket.

My husband and I stayed at the Shore for 3 nights after a busy week in Patong!
From the moment we arrived till the day we left, the Shore exceeded our expectations.
The lovely staff at reception who greeted us and checked us in were very friendly and had fantastic smiles that made us feel at home.
We were very excited with our buggy ride to our room and felt like royalty riding around the resort.
When we arrived at our room it was lovely to see the effort the staff had put into making you feel welcome. We were shown around our room and then they brought our bags to us.
We stayed on the second level and our villa had a perfect view of the beach. Our room was amazing and one of the best we have ever stayed in.
Every little detail of the room was of high quality and we were extremely happy.
We had breakfast down by the pool every morning and it was lovely. We were very happy with the selection of the food.
We ate at 3 of the restaurants over the whole resort and were never disappointed.
Having the villa was the best, we spent most of our time in our pool only really leaving for breakfast and dinner.
Thank you to everyone at The Shore, you have a fantastic resort and should be very proud of the service you give. We will definitely be back there in the near future with a few friends and family who loved our photos of your beautiful resort!

We stayed here at the end of our honeymoon, and the villa was amazing. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa, and the only downside was that our sun terrace didn't get direct sun light and the villa pool was 6ft in depth, so you can't stand in it and enjoy the view.

The staff and service were amazing and the hotel is linked with the Katathani so you get to use all of the amenities there. We only stayed here for 2 days so we didn't get the opportunity to see more of the resort, but on this stay we ould definatley go back.

On our first morning we had in-room breakfast and there was loads of food, too much to fair, but the quality was fabulous. The in rooms amenities and little touches were second to none,
