“Such Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Stayed at Kata Lucky Villas for 10 nights in December 2012 and from the outset the staff were very friendly and very helpful. We opted for one of the bungalows which gave us more space and privacy but also because they were set in beautiful greenery. Had a quick look at the pool access and we had made the right choice for us. Massage by the pool every day was great and cheap by European standards!!! Breakfast left a bit to be desired, I think the last time I had orange 'cordial' was when I was a kid! But hubby nipped up to Starbucks every day and got me a proper coffee and sarnie. Location was fine and we made friends with a great Thai guy called Pom who works as a taxi driver for the hotel, his wife works in reception and she is a sweetheart. Pom took us everywhere we wanted to go, short or long hops so we did not bother hiring a car although you can hire a car from the hotel. You can also hire mopeds from the hotel which are cheap as chips, about GBP5 for 24 hours. Our room was spacious, plenty of cupboard space, a private safe, TV (which we never watched cos we were too busy) and a comfortable bed, bedding was good too although I do have to moan about the towels! Take your own towels as the quality of the ones provided are so poor I would not even give them to my housemaid! Now for the guests............................. if you don't like Russians then don't even think of staying at this hotel, what a bunch of unfriendly people. As a Brit, if we see someone every day we at least nod to in acknowledgement or even say hello and hey sometimes we even strike a conversation with fellow guests but not this time. I think we were the only Brits staying there, the other Brits seemed to stay up the road in Karon Beach area. Nevertheless I am happy that we chose Kata Lucky Villas for our stay as the hospitality and politeness from the staff far outweighed the rudeness of other guests. Sorry if you are Russian and are reading this but that was our experience!!

Room Tip: We preferred a front deluxe villa by the pool

Half the price of the 5 star places - so let's keep it in perspective. Really quite liked the room - modern, clean and spacious. Breakfast was rather average. Guys - fruit juice always beats chilled cordial. Would always favour one big resort pool rather than the strange layout at Lucky Villa. And would have loved two keys. Mustn't forget the mattresses - just so hard. Not since a $25 room in China have I encountered worse. And the air cond struggled to get temperatures down to a comfy level after being off all day. Yep - it's a bit of a hike to get there; but grew to actually enjoy the eclectic mix of properties on the 5 min walk into town. reception staff a delight; or those at brekkie less so. But all in all - for the price - I was not unhappy. Oh, and Kata rocks.

Stayed here for 2 nights in the wet season. It was very quiet and had to ask a couple of times for someone to serve at the bar.
The room was adequate but nothing special.
Luckily we booked through Agoda so got a cheaper rate.
It's a little way out of the town but they put on a bus (flat bed truck) service into town

We stayed for three nights in the Pool access room. The room was overall great with direct access to the pool and definitely clean. Breakfast in the hotel is just average serving the normal toast, bacon and eggs plus some fruits. Nothing really to cheer about as more less every decent hotel serves same or better.

But... there is one thing that this hotel is doing absolutely wrong, which is customer service attitude. Some of the staff at the reception obviously have no idea, what means good customer service. Certain staff treated customers (including us) very rudely. I would think that a good hotel staff should be friendly, patient, helpful and understanding and unfortunately none of these qualities apply this place.

So yes, this is a great 4 star hotel with a 1 star service attitude. I'm not saying that all the staff is like that but unfortunately the image for the hotel can be easily spoiled by a few bad ones...

Stayed here for five nights on arrival having booked prior to coming to phuket.we weren't disappointed. Staff and room were ok. Room was big and direct access to the pool. Good value for the price . A short walk to kata but not too far . Hotel provides free shuttle to kata beah in the day which is also useful. Breakfast very limited but enough to keep you going.

We stayed here only for 2 nights. Great for family as the room are huge enough - at very affordable price (Damn cheap actually if i compare to Malaysia's room rate as am from Malaysia). There are 11 of us so we've booked 2 standard villa and 2 pool access room.

We arrived around 5pm at the airport and we opt for the villa's airport pickup at very reasonable price. THB1300 for 11 person. We stop by at the Pathong first to have dinner and the driver were so nice to wait for us.

They did provide welcome drink at the reception. We checked in around 9pm and as we have room with pool access, we jumped in for a quick swim. My mom and my aunt had massage at the hotel-nearby the public pool..We had so much fun staying at the hotel.

We also rent 5 bikes to move around in the Phuket - THB 200 perday but it is cheaper to rent it outside. But petrol is quite expensive compared to Malaysia. Phuket is not so big so if we can easily move around the island by our own - by bike/car.
