We stayed at Metadee for 3 nights in August.
We specifically picked Kata beach because it was a quiet area and not too busy like Patong Beach.
The resort itself is beautiful, tropical trees everywhere and lush greenery, it is located at the end of a long driveway but the resort offers golf carts to take you to the main road free of charge.
Reception area isn't the most beautiful but don't let it it put you off, we received a welcome drink o arrival and we were escorted to our private pool villa which was very simplistic in furniture but clean, pretty and very spacious. We enjoyed the private pool and the outdoor shower very much.
The breakfast at Himmaphan restaurant was less than average and there weren't a lot of options especially for vegetarians , the fried rice had some sort of meat in it which we accidentally discovered while eating, also we had an incident where the cutlery wasn't clean and had to ask for replacement which put a damper on our breakfast and we had lost our appetites at that point, not what you would expect from a supposedly 5* hotel.
Hotel staff was great except for one guy at reception who was rude most of the time, the ladies were great and the breakfast staff was great.
At night the mosquitos bit us even through the mosquito net, and there were a couple of insects in the room like a giant worm and a giant beetle.
If insects scare you this is not the place for you.
I have to say the highlight of our stay was the spa, we went there twice the first time we did the Metadee Balance which includes Steam room, Thai Massage for 1 hr and Aromatherapy Massage for 1 hr, the experience was absolutely amazing and professional and the spa was beautiful and clean with great masseuses. The spa is very expensive compared to the ones just outside the resort but they had a buy one get one free deal for all spa packages and we were a couple so it turned out to be good value for money.
On our last night we requested a late checkout for the next day but we were turned down and offered to stay at the "living room" after checkout at 12 PM which was basically a business centre with Wifi, sofas, toilets, computers, tv and a docking station. It turned out okay because we only ended up staying there 1 hr before our car came to pick us up to the airport. We have timed it so we were in the Spa doing a 3 hr full spa experience (which I highly recommend by the way) from 11-2 pm and our car came at 3PM.
The full spa experience was pure bliss, it included steam room, full body scrub, body wrap, floral bath and an hr long aromatherapy massage. We also got a buy 1 get 1 free which was a good deal for 3500 baht for me and my husband.
Although on both occasions we went to the spa it was just the 2 of us no other patrons and I am guessing because it was overpriced especially if it's just one person.
If you are staying at the Metadee I highly recommend Oriental Spa which is just down the road from the resort we had a lovely facial and foot massage there and the staff was super amazing and
I don't think I'll be staying in this resort again just because of the bugs, mosquitos, insects and the breakfast quality and I am sure Phuket has better 5* resorts.
