Just finished staying for 16days. The hotel is a bit dated and needs a little work. Rooms are very dark, take a torch! Breakfast is good, lots of choice. Pools are good. Nice swim up bar, the back one was not open. Beds are hard, very hard. Harder then any other bed throughout asia that I have slept on. They... More

When on the island of Phuket I have generally stayed in Patong, this year my new lady friend and I decided to try somewhere new, we choose KPR&S as its away from the hustle and noise of Patong. After arriving at around midnight due to a delay getting through customs of nearly 1 1/2 hours, we were shown our room... More

Fantastic resort hotel with the best pools and landscaped gardens, luxury rooms and the most authentic Thailand feel. You may find great service or great luxury elsewhere but this resort gives you the same but with the feeling you are actually in Thailand as a plus. I like to blend with and feel a culture where I visit and I... More

Cons Very bad smell in the room. Far from the beach. Very expensive taxi and transfer service. I advice to hotel guests that they should not use the taxi service in the hotel. They said the price three times more than the outside taxis. If you have another choice go and stay there. Pool is bad, it is not for... More

This was our second stay at the Kata Palm unfortunately it wasn't quite as good as the first stay 2 years ago. We requested the same room if possible but got a much worse room. Lower floor in the corner with poor view and 2 single beds pushed together which were very uncomfortable. We also found the check in process... More

Stayed here with family 8 years ago and thought it was lovely. On my return with a group of friends, I was a little worried it may have changed. NO!! It didn't disappoint. Beautiful pool, lovely gardens, great location and amazing service. Thanks!

We had a pleasant stay but felt that the staff could have been more friendly. They need to go that little extra mile with making their customers feel welcome, especially some of the Reception and poolside staff. They forgot to decorate our room for our anniversary and failed to compensate in any other way, just a verbal apology. The mattresses... More

This hotel is lovely. The rooms are great, the staff are lovely and the breakfast is great. There are two pools and plenty of sun loungers for everyone. There is also a pool bar in each pool and the lower rooms that don't have a balcony have a door that leads directly into the back pool which is very relaxing.... More
