Metadee Resort and Villas
Ranked #13 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We decided on Metadee from the reviews we had read and the pictures that we had seen, we were very impressed and did not at all regret it, it was perfect. I will try and keep it as simple as possible.

Very pretty resort, quiet area, look in the mountains you can see the back of the big buddha
Excellent pool, very big, lots of sun loungers, pool towels included, beach bag, flip flops aswell.
Staff are brilliant, very friendly, sometimes very attentive and there before you needed to ask for them other times you have to get there attention.
Breakfast, this was brilliant. There was a good selection of things - Bread, bacon, Eggs(any way you like) Fruit, a few types, about 4 different cereal choices, water and juices also fresh juices / smoothies, the normal tea and coffee and you could also get noodles, rice, pancakes, french toast, ham & cheese. They tried to cater for all and seemed to do a really good job, i was impressed. One tip, if you are out on a early morning trip ask for a breakfast box, you get a sandwich, banana, yoghurt, croissants, fruit juice, it was brilliant, just ask reception.
Room cleaned to a high standard every day and they even leave a card to tell you what time they came, Mini bar also stocked every day and water and cashew nuts left every day aswell.
Bed linen was changed every day and so were the towels. Air con was lovely when you had been in the sun all day.
We had a pool villa, it was gorgeous would definately recommend the upgrade if you can
Nice big bed, fantastic, big pillows too, very comfortable.
Bathroom was well equipped, indoor shower had a ceiling mounted rainshower and also a wall mounted shower head aswell. There was also an outside rainshower too, all perfect never had a problem like some others have reported with no hot water, we always had hot water.
The shower and toilet set up is a little strange at first, the shower is next to the toilet cubicle and they share the same sliding door, there is also a hole in the wall at head height looking through from one to the other, bit strange but we got used to it.
Outside area in the pool villa was excellent, sunloungers were in the sun from about 11 to 3, plunge pool was more in the shade throughout the day, not a problem and it was quite cool for that dip every now and again when you needed to cool off from the heat of the day. The outside seating area was nice too.
The hotel bar does happy hour every day 4.30 to 6.00 then again at 10.00 to 11.00, the bar really does close then after that. There are two beers on buy two get one free and also a choice of about 8 cocktails on buy one get one free.
Never ate at the Metadee restaurant, was overpriced compared to walking out to the main road.
The golf buggies are always on hand to take you to the top of the road too.
The hotel gym was a little small with limited facilities, we went a couple of times but gave in cause we really couldn't do a proper workout.
TV in the room, you get a list of what channels are in what language, but we really didn't bother much with it as we found it a very poor selection.
Didn't use the spa at the hotel, you do get a discount voucher when you arrive but there is one at the top of the Metadee road (Oriental Massage) which is a lot cheaper.

Special mentions to Boy in the restaurant, always smiling, Jacky from the bar and restaurant, Golf from the bar, these guys go above and beyond.

Any questions, please ask, i will try and help.

After carefully deciding on three resorts for our holiday in Thailand, Our stay at the Metadee topped the other 2 resorts! The location is superb! Just a leisurely stroll to the beach, just up the street probably took around 8-10 minutes but the walk is wonderful because there are so much shopping and restaurants! The Kata Area is fantastic, not as much hassle with people selling (Patong) and the beach is my favorite in Thailand. If you go to the North End of the beach there is an excellent little spot to buy a chair and they offer food and also rentable snorkel equipment. (Great little reef right off beach). The Metadee was a great little oasis to come home to! We had a pool access room. Pool Fantastic and they remembered us at breakfast. Don't be put off by the walk to the resort by the long road. The gulf carts run up and down all the time. We never had to walk! I miss this place! Absolute great value, service and location!

Room Tip: Get Pool Access. And get some OFF bug spray. There are mosquitos everywhere in Thailand, price you p...

The hotel really was as the pictures showed. It is absolutely beautiful with the most amazing pool. All the staff were fantastic and were so helpful! The hotel is based at the end of a long driveway, which was not a problem at all because they have a golf buggy shuttle service and they are more than happy to take you and pick you up whenever. It is nice and close to Kata Beach without being in the middle of all the chaos. There was always enough sun loungers by the pool, even though the resort was fully booked. Breakfast was great and the staff were always amazing with their service. Couldn't recommend more.

I'm just back from a week at Metadee with my 13 yo daughter. We loved it. We had a private pool room which was fabulous - the room was just beautiful and having a private outdoor area with seating for meals, sunbeds and the pool - as well as the fabulous bedroom with extra daybed, dressing room, fabulous bathroom and outdoor shower - was phenomenal. I can confirm someone else's review I read here before I booked - the rooms are exactly the same as the pictures shown on their website.

The main pool and the layout of the resort around it is just perfect. The best way to describe it is as a pool that 'snakes' its way through the resort with rooms opening onto or near the pool. It's the longest pool I've ever seen and was lots of fun.

The food at the restaurant was good - bear in mind when travelling with finnicky young teenagers and the breakfast buffet was particularly good for a fussy eater.

The staff were just lovely - remember English is their second language so there were a couple of small misunderstandings but nothing that you'd do much more than laugh about.

I'd go back again.

Room Tip: For privacy and space choose the private pool room but the pool access rooms also looked great.

The hotel was exactly as per the pictures. Staff we very hlepful and friendly. We were in the pool view rooms and we thought there were better than the pool side ones. The rooms were light with a nice balcony. We has two adjoining rooms as we were there with our two children - aged12 and 15. They were not truly ajoining - there was a door between the balconys of the two rooms and this could be left open which meant the main sliding doors to the balcony could be left open and no one else could access our joint space. It was fine for us because of our children's age but if our kids were younger we would have been a lot less comfortable with the arrangements.

We all enjoyed the breakfast. There was plenty of variety. The taxi fares from the hotel were very reasonable.

We have just returned from a 15 night stay at the Metadee and had the most fantastic time. The hotel is beautiful with the most stunning pool and everywhere is immaculately maintained. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made us feel really welcome. The location is ideal without being overly busy and handy to shops, beach and restaurants. Taxis are at the door of the hotel and are the same price as everywhere else. The only gripe would be the wi-fi connection dropping out every few minutes but apart from that I would highly recommend the resort and would love to go back again.

Room Tip: We had the pool view room (2nd floor) and had a nice view. It would have been nice to be on the grou...

We love this resort, its tucked away down a driveway. The staff are great especially the bar staff, they are always friendly and wanting to joke with you. The pool is great, we would recommend a deluxe pool access room or villa. The gardens are lovely, its a hidden gem
