“Amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Loved our stay! When we arrived we were treated to a cocktail and a beautiful traditional (not sure what they are called) wrist flowers.. We were brought to our room by golf cart, which was a little scary because the grounds of this property are pretty steep and it happened to rain the night we arrived. We were brought to the wrong room at first but once we got to our room it was so so beautiful it didn't even matter! The room was beautiful and so so clean. I loved the fact that you could opt for free breakfast served to your room instead of eating in the main pool area!

We have recently returned from The Shore at Katathani and had an amazing time. Our daughter's wedding Reception was held at Seacrets Restaurant during our stay and the whole day was just flawless from start to finish.The location is wonderful, Kata Noi Beach is beautiful and unspoiled and the villas at the Shore are the best accommodation we have ever experienced!We returned to our rooms most evenings to find they had been decorated with flower petals, candles etc - such a lovely touch. This was our first trip to Thailand and will be a very memorable experience for years to come. The staff at both the Shore and Katathani are simply first class- always smiling and so very helpful. We would like to say a special thank you to Pitta for all her help with the wedding and the "golf buggy boys" who transported us up and down to our beautiful villas throughout our stay and were so pleasant with us all. We would also like to mention Nadia and the hairdressing/beauty team for doing such a great job for some of the ladies from the bridal party - we all felt a million dollars on the wedding day!!The food and drinks package we arranged for the wedding reception was first class.Do try Cafe Opera, The Horn Steakhouse and The Fork and Spoon in nearby Kata Beach all are excellent and catered for our large party of 20 without any problem.Will will definitely be returning to Thailand and can't wait to go back to The Shore!

Room Tip: Pool villas at The Shore are fantastic -even better than the brochures Garden rooms facing the pool...

After having been to Phuket for the each of the last 4 years,we were looking for a very relaxing holiday this time and having booked the Top advised hotel on tripadvisor and elsewhere our expectation were high. The Shore met and exceeded those expectations.Me and Wife stayed here for 4 nights at the Pool Villa- also called as the Lobster Alley.The villa itself was huge and brilliantly done.The place is so romantic and quite good for honeymooners or romantic couples. The villas are totally private and you wake up every morning to the sight of the ocean. There are some really nice touches, like the little wooden turtle you put outside your villa if you want your room cleaned. The staff are very friendly, helpful and courteous.The pool in-villa is quite nice and you can relax and laze around all day here doing nothing.Only piece of advise, if you get one of the villas at the top of the hill, be ready to sweat as its a good climb if you decide not to take the golf cart....It is quite a walk and kind of drains you out. But then when you do arrive at the villa, the site within and outside makes it worth it. kata beach is probably the best in phuket and the area adjoining the hotel was even better. Very private,clean and secluded.
The only thing if we could complain about is that the breakfast is quite similar every day. There are very few variables and it gets monotonous after 2 days.

Overall the stay was wonderful and we were well taken care off.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the best as there are no obstructions between the villa and the sea it self. Tr...

The Shore gives you the best view of the beach. We had a Villa same exactly as they show in picture. The place is so romantic best for honeymooners. It is so private and good security, Room service and food are great must try their pasta, pizza and stake. Tried La Scala i like the romantic ambiance and oh they give you a red rose. The staff are enthusiastically friendly, happy, courteous and very helpful. 24/7 buggy service. Breakfast in your own room and also in The Harbour. Breakfast food are all the same everyday bacon, roast beef, eggs, pork, sausage etc. The bed was so comfy they give you a choice of your pillows, they have insect repellants. The beach is clean even though its public and oh be ready to pay 200 bhats for the chairs (sun loungers). Everyday was a wedding day when we stayed there theres always a wedding at the beach. And by the way you don't need to go couple of miles to view point for sunset. You will get the best view of sunset in your room and in the beach with a wine or cocktail in your hands while sitting, relaxing and listening to the waves. over all stay was Great!

We spent our honeymoon here and I couldn't have wished for a better place. Everything about this place is amazing and we can't wait to go back.

The staff are super friendly and they will even drive you to your room in a golf cart if you don't feel like walking.

From a 24 hour journey from NYC; the shore made was the best decision my husband and I made. The best beach ever! Private with security gives you comfort of safe. The room we stayed was the sea view villa which is worth every penny.

The breakfast they serve at the harbor or even in your room they deliver. The golf buggy to dive you around always waiting in the lobby for guests. I would not recommend the half or full board options.

The restaurants on the property is outstanding; especially La Scala!

The staff is superb!!!!!
Don't stay in patong or Phuket its dirty and away from the beach!

Stayed here last week for a wedding which was held in their sister resort. The rooms are huge and very spectacular. One thing that does not appear to be mentioned in any of these reviews is that the villas are NOT on the ocean front - ours was up a huge hill, which nearly killed us to walk up! There is a buggy service which takes you up to near your room, but there was still 2 flights of stairs to negotiate. Not a huge problem but I was expecting them to be beachside!
Breakfast was great - massive selection on offer and the food in the resort is of a very high standard.
The beach is superb, although note you need to pay for sun loungers as it is not a private beach. Staff very friendly and welcoming throughout our stay.
There were only a couple of 'flaws' during our stay - the facecloths were taken and not replaced and when trying to explain what a facecloth is the translation on the phone took a very long time, but we got there and they were brought up. There was also no milk provided in the room, despite tea and coffee facilities (or should I say one type of each tea bag!) and we had to request this (coffeemate is provided). One of our cups was taken away and not returned (admittedly we did not request this back, but felt it should have been noticed by housekeeping).
There are added extras such as mosquito spray provided, beach bag (very handy) buggy service between the resorts (which is a long walk), and umbrella (did not use)
Overall 9/10 and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a low level Villa, as ours (8851) is a very steep hike from reception!

Dear Perthgirl31,
Thank you for taking time to share your valuable feedback with us through Tripadvisor and compliments about our staff service, hotel location and breakfast selections. We are sorry to know that the location of your pool villa was not up to your expectation. Had this issue been raised, our front office team could have found a villa on a lower level for you. We do also apologize regarding the imperfection caused by our housekeeping team. I have passed on the information to the team to pay more attention to the details.
Once again, thank you. We would look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Best Regards,
Customer Relations Manager
