“A Wonderful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2007

Kata minta is fantastic.

Location could not be better 5 mins walk away from the beach, amazingly friendly staff and fabulous rooms.

The rooms were the nicest in all my stay in Thailand, nice size, beautiful tiled bathroom with a large bath with a great powerful shower(see pics!). Breakfast was included and although not much choice it was more than adequate.

The double bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning was superb and very, very quiet when running(so no problem sleeping with it on) and there was a decent select of channels on the tv.

Kata itself is a fabulous place to base yourself, plenty of bars and restaurants yet much more low key and quieter than patong. The beach here is gorgeous, very good swimming with nice smallish waves, and there is also very good snorkling at the southern end of the beach.

I couldn’t recommend this hotel enough.

Also i would highly advise a trip to the khai islands, 20 mins by speedboat from phuket, the islands are beautiful with really rich coral + marine life.

Stayed April 2007

We were really pleased we chose to stay in Kata Beach rather than the busier beaches further north. The beach is smaller and quieter than Karon or Patong and it's only a short tuk tuk ride to Kata Noi, an even smaller and quieter beach a little further south - great beach to chill out for an afternoon.

Kata Minta was exactly what we were looking for - a small, stylish, reasonably priced hotel with Thai furnishings, great service and a lovely courtyard area out the front for dining and bar. Nice big beds and bathrooms with a bath. We had a balcony but never went out there because it looked over another hotel's corridors. They do have rooms with balconies facing the front though.

Most of the beachfront at Kata Beach is taken up by a Club Med resort so if you stay somewhere in the middle of Kata, you'll have to walk the length of the resort to get to the beach. Kata Minta is perfectly located at the southern end of the beach, just 2 mins walk down to the beach.

Most tuk tuk / songtao drivers won't know where Kata Minta is so take a map and their phone number with you.

If you get the chance and have some money to burn, dine at The Boathouse. It's superb food and service, right on the beach and just around the corner from Kata Minta.

This hotel is a real find - a cute little boutique hotel that stands out from all the large, faceless hotels and resorts around the main Phuket beaches. Very friendly and helpful staff, a good sized, clean room decorated in traditional Thai style and a nice little restaurant. Also close to the beach. Only two downsides - some of the balconies look out onto a brick wall (although they've done their best to make them attractive all the same!) and not all taxi drivers know where it is, so make sure you take a map and phone number!
