“Love it!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

If you like self contained accommodation over a hotel room this is the place for you. My husband, 30 yo daughter and I are currently staying in 8c which is the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom penthouse pool villa. So much room to move and every mod con available right down to the coffee machine and the washing machine! Short 5 minute walk into Kata and all of the great food and bars. After visiting Phuket over the last 10 years, and preferring to stay in pool villas, Kata Gardens has not disappointed. It is right up there with the best of them.... Do yourself a favour and stay at Kata Gardens on your next visit.

I tried booking with the property manager which took 3 weeks to even get a reply after several emails, then was advised two seperate rooms were available for the time we will be in thailand 4 nights in 1, 2 in another. Which was fine, I don't mind the move...So, I requested to book this and after 2 weeks still no reply, I even emailed the owner and the site directly and still no response! opportunities to stay at other places became slim because I really wanted to stay at Kata Gardens...Needless to say, we have given up and booked elsewhere, and won't ever consider Kata Gardens again due to their communication or lack thereof.

It was a lovely staying, beautiful two beds room, big balcony, and big share space. We had our own pond on roof top, but the sun beds weren`t clean enough to use, though you can see the ocean, but still need a bit decorate around that area. Some new building construction happened during the night, very noisy. Besides we stayed on the 3rd floor, I guess center controlled AC was right outside of our apt. noisy!!! staffs were friendly and helpful, would like to go back again.

Room Tip: 2C has good view on the roof top for ocean, but noisy during the night.

Stayed here for a week in mid August. A lovely big apartment overlooking the complex's attractive landscaped gardens and pools.
Met by our very helpful host Egon who gave us the tour of this attractive apartment, some tips on enjoying the area and left us to it.
The apartment was spacious, cool, surprisingly quiet and having stayed with two teenage daughters in separate 1bedroom villas previously it was nice to be together in spacious accomodation.
The master bedroom was large, comfortable and had a magnificent ensuite arrangement, though we did find thai beds everywhere a bit firm for our taste.
Our girls had their twin bed room and ensuite at the other end of the apartment, with open plan well appointed kitchen, dining and lounge area, with floor to ceiling glass windows everywhere looking down over pool and gardens. The glass doors opened out to a huge covered balcony for lazing around with an icy drink.
The apartment was up on 2nd level with good security and access via stairs.
We swum in two of the attractive pools wrapping around the apartments, finding them clean and cooling and ventured into Kata several times each day to swim in the surf, browse the shops or simply sit at one of the bar/restaurants on the beach with a cold drink or a meal.
Katagarden Apartments are sited on a hill between Kata Beach and Kata Noi. Its a short, relatively steep walk down to beach and town from the apartments, a bit tough walking home in the heat of the day but after a couple of days l actually relished the exercise.
Its a great spot and we really enjoyed ourselves there. A couple of minor hiccups with a sound system we couldn't get going and airconditioning, which was very efficient, stopped working in the second bedroom for a couple of days but overall delightful.
We'll be going back as soon as we can.

We stayed here as a family and with two other family groups. The place was practically deserted, despite the agent we booked through being insistent that we booked quickly as the place was getting full (obviously working on commission). He also tried to charge us more for an apartment than our friends, they ended up with a penthouse with roof top pool and we paid the same for a standard apartment. There was no washing machine in ours, which was strange, luckily one of the other families had one. There was no information at all about the apartments or the local area in our room and our room was only made up once on our whole time there (7 nights) despite our friends having theirs done twice. Prior to our last day I checked what time check-out was and was told 2pm, the next day they rang us at 11 and asked when we were leaving and when I said that I was told check-out was 2, I was told I needed to pay more! I refused. I know this place is not a resort or hotel, but the total lack of information or any kind of assistance was poor. I would hate to be here when the place was full, the pools were lovely but there was very little space around them and only four sun lounges in the entire place.
The apartments were lovely, well set out with all the necessities. The air-con seemed to have a mind of its own and sometimes just refused to work. One of our sinks was blocked for the entire stay and was never corrected, despite my attempts to let someone know. Not a bad place, but I wouldn't stay there again.

We read about these apartments on Trip Advisor and were cautious because of mixed reviews. However, our experience at Kata Gardens was fantastic. The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in was exceptionally well appointed. It had everything we needed in a luxury holiday home.
We stayed for a week in the spacious 2A and while it was somewhat noisy outside (this apartment is close to the road) it was non existent inside. Breakfast on the expansive terrace, swimming in the free form pool which wound its way around the complex, sleeping in the very comfortable king size bed and separate accommodation (sleeping and bathroom) for our teenage daughter (she really liked this!) were real plusses! The kitchen had everything you could expect including a wide range of wine glasses.
The air conditioning was really effective throughout the whole apartment, WiFi was fantastic, the TV including cable, HiFi including DVD, CD was also a bonus. Our contact Pin, on site manager Ya as well as security staff were all fabulous (The security staff liked to get out the golf cart and deliver us to our apartment).
Restaurants are only 200 m down the road. We had also stocked up in Jung Ceylon Big C in Patong before arriving at Kata Gardens to ensure we had some staples in the apartment.
The location is fantastic for all beach goers. We had the choice of Kata or Kata Noi Beach within walking distance of the resort (maximum 500m) although the return journeys from the beach are all uphill!
All in all a fabulous place to stay!

Here now, the apt is stunning, the complex is very very quiet. We booked through the owner so got a very good rate and good communication leading up to our arrival, very helpful. Not a lot to complain about, only 4 sun loungers and 1 umbrella by one of the pools, the other nothing except a bench seat, so if there were any more than the 2 of us would be a problem. As far as I can see there might not be any other guests here, that's suits us fine, pool to ourselves. On a hill between Kata and Kata Noi, the latter beach is better has some shade in the corner late afternoon, otherwise there are wall to wall beach loungers for hire, warning though 200 batht for 2 hours. The apts are a 200 mtr walk to this beach, the quickest way down is by VERY VERY steep steps or a longer route By road, which is steep coming back. Kata beach is slightly further away but again down a hill, but not so steep. I would recommend Kata for dining out, Kata Noi does not seem to have a lot. Looks like the Russians have taken over the place.

Room Tip: I would try and book through an owner instead of the management, better communication and better rat...
