“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

it my 1st time to phuket: m glad to choose phuket kata resort after plenty of research. Beside the norms when travel in Thailand: mosquitoes & poor English, the location is great! nice restaurents,cafes,cheap street food and spa nearby: 5min walk to beautiful kata beach.only disappointment is non-thai staff working at shops,most of them are rude and it really spoilt mood of shopping spirit.

We really enjoyd this hotel and its very nice pool area. We had a pool access from our room, but althought it was nice, our room was located so that the terass was in the shadow all day long and therefore we didint really enjoy this option as much as we would have been wanted. Nevertheless, Phuket Kata Resort is a lovely, peacefull place to stay!

We visited Phuket in october and the weather pleasant the hotel is bit away from the town but the Kata beach is really nice, much better than the croweded ones in Phuket.
The Pool Bar is quite a treat, The hotel has decent rooms but the room serrvice is bit sluggish, The food is good and they have activities planned out for kids which really means a lot to family like ours with a small kid (Son is 4)

Room Tip: Try take a room with a direct pool access.

I visited Phuket Kata Resort with my friends and we really had a amazing experience. The rooms were big and lovely. The bathroom was also nice. We really enjoyed a lot and had a very good time. We got a pool access from the room directly. The location is amazing.

Room Tip: All the rooms are big and spacy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We stayed here last October (yes its taken me a little while to write my review). We got a pool access room for 1100 baht a night which was an absolute bargain! The room was lovely, large and roomy bathroom with a little balcony straight into the pool. Breakfast was included and great (just stay away from the bain marie items). The only thing my boyfriend and I ate different on the trip was the breakfast buffet (I forgot to warn him about Thai breakfast buffets). I stuck to the fruit, cereal, toast etc but he got stuck into the noodles etc that had been sitting there all morning.. 24 hours later he was violently ill from both ends! No criticism on the resort as a whole as this can happen anywhere!

Positives: bargain hotel, swim up bar, pool access rooms, tucked away from main road
Negatives: not the best customer service, avoid the bain marie food at breakfast

Would I stay there again? Yes if I wanted to be in Kata area and it was low season ABSOLUTELY... Would I pay high season price for this resort? No....

Room Tip: Pool access definitely the best!

After a big disappointment in Merlin, Khao Lak, we moved to Phuket Kata Reort, which turned out to be a wonderful resort. We chose a room with a direct access to the pool, which can be highly recommended. The room was big, nice, bright, clean and had a double bed and 2 single beds. Nice bathroom. Perfect for a family of 4. There is a small terrace with table, chairs and sun beds.

The resort is only 5 min. away from the beach, and 2 min. from shopping and the main street, but still tucked away, so there is no noice or hassle from the night life.

The staff/receptionist were so nice, helpful, and smiled all the time.

The breakfast was good with their own egg station.

The pools were nice, there are sun beds all way around, and was never over-crowded.

A wonderful place for a family!!!

Common 3-star hotell, a little dated. Booked a room with direct pool access. It also had a direct view on the neighbours a few meters across the pool. The pool water was quite cold. Breakfast ok. Two extra beds in the room: a sofa/bed with an extra mattrass under! Good if you travel with kids. Fridge. Bathroom ok with spacious shower. New Years Eve dinner rather disappointing with strange food. We grabbed our taxfree champagne and a couple of beers and went down to the beach instead. Reception asked when we were going to leave the room, because we had a very early departure. When we then opened the door one from the staff waited there and took our bags to the bus! We became very happy, because otherwise the service was limping at restaurants and other places.
