Kata Beach Resort and Spa
Ranked #27 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed October 30, 2007

This was our second trip to Kata beach resort. We loved the first time some much we went back again.

On arriving at the hotel we were greated by the 'head' front desk lady with drinks and our names were added to the VIP customers as it was our second stay. We were travelling with friends and it was only there first time there so they werent treated as VIP which was a bit annoying for them. The only difference was we got water added to our fridge twice a day and also a fruit platter and wine in our room on arrival.

The staff here are always friendly and the place is just so relxed and beautiful. THere are many great resturants near by and its just a short tuk tuk ride into Patong.

Would reccomend

We stayed here from 3 Sep to 6 Sept, booked through a budget airline package. It was our first visit to Phuket and it was low season for the island. The hotel is about 45min away from the airport, gotta pass through some winding roads. Not a big fan of the overdosed red interior, but hotel lobby is spacious and airy. Reception staffs were very friendly and helpful; because the hotel was having some upgrading work, we were given 2 days of complimentary afternoon tea and dinner voucher. Our booking was for garden view room only but we got a pool side / beach view room, the room was very clean and spacious, the bathroom was clean and nice too. Laundry service was good, we got new fresh towels everyday, and when we asked for extra pillows, they were sent to us like immediately but they could have use some better quality mattress. The hotel has a nice location, you can find Tuk Tuk stand just opposite and Songthaew (local bus) depart to Phuket town just outside the hotel every morning at 10:30. There are some nice restaurants and Thai massage shops across the road as well. Even though this is a beach front hotel, most beaches in Phuket are “run” by independent vendor, which means they set up chairs and umbrellas along the beach and you’ve to pay for the spot; I thought this only apply to Patong.. Nonetheless, there are deck chairs just along the hotel pool side for hotel guests. Breakfast is very nice, good varieties of food, from local to western, however, dinner is not recommended. Kata beach is much less crowded than Patong, it’s a good place to relax and suggest that anyone wants to visit Phuket, go during low season as it’s much, much less crowded (on the street, the beach and restaurants), hotels are way cheaper too.

After a few mixed reviews I was a bit wary about staying here. But I can, after staying there for 2 weeks, say it is a great place to stay!
The hotel is right on the beach, which at this time of year is a bit rough... although we still went in and had a lot of fun jumping the waves, along with a lot of other people and watching the surfers!
The water was also very clear on days the waves were a little smaller.
The hotel also provided us with 5 free dinner vouchers which were much appreciated, allowing us to eat in the main restaurant for a wide range of buffet meals.
The breakfast had everything i could have wanted, a selection of hot food, croissants, bread, cereals, fruit and so on.
The staff were very friendly and always greeted you if you walked past!
The weather was also very good around 30-32 each day and only rained twice.

I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone!!

We booked the hotel through AsiaWeb. They were effecient and completely up front and provessional. The Hotel is a fantastic resort catering to many nationalities and both familesies with and without children. Access to Kata beach is right at your doorstep with no roads to cross or other obstacles to worry about. The rooms are spacious, well turned out, very clean and everything you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The beach is quieter than Patong (thank God!) but had jet skis, paragliding, banana boat, water sking all for rent should you want them. The beach had a variety restaurants from the Mom Tris, the best restaurant in Phuket, to your more normal, and inexpensive cafe style restaurants. There are also few places to get massages(BHT300 per hour), pedicures(BHT 100), manicures(BHT 100) and braiding (BHT1200 for whole head).
A truly lovely plave to spend a couple of weeks wiht your family. I went with 2 adults, and 3 kids (12, 10, 8) and we were never bored.

Have fun, I fully recommend this place. - Cheers, Ed and family. 27th March 2007 - 10 April 2007.

Got there and room wasn't ready so they put us in a noisy room overlooking main road and car park, would have left us in that one if I hadn't complained I'm sure.
My main gripe is that you have no chance of a sunbed unless you get up very early ie 6am! and put your towel down, there are obviously more people than sunbeds but after putting their towels down you don't see them for most of the day, well except for the bed I removed the towels off, nearly got in a fight with a russian gentleman and his wife who sat on my wife!
The pool staff seemed powerless to intervene and it was a bit embarassing to say the least. Luckily this wasn't a huge problem as we went somewhere different each day but some people do like to stay in one place and for them big problem.
Kids in only adults pool.
Breakfast: too many people, too big, wish I had gone to the Katathani bhuri where we went 2 years previously.
If you like huge hotels and getting up really early to book a sunbed and lots of people go there!
