It can't be denied that The Shore has a magnificent vantage point over Kata Beach. Although I can't say that Phuket has ever been on my 'must-do' list of travel destinations (and after having visited, I haven't changed my view about that), we did enjoy our wonderful Sea View villa at The Shore. We spent most of our stay enjoying our room and admiring the view from our infinity pool. The communal pool was nice, but we preferred the privacy of our room.
The daily breakfast was fine - standard hotel fare. I would have liked to see more traditional Thai menu items available for a la carte dining, and I felt that those that were available were not of a high standard. Having said that, there are some great restaurants nearby to get your foodie fix from (we dined at The Boathouse, Mom Tri's and ReKaTa, and thought each was superb), though it would be nice to have a higher standard of food available 'in house'.
We stayed on Turtle Alley, which was reasonably high up the hillside. In heels, a golf cart ride back to our room was a must. However, during the day we mostly walked back up via the internal staircase. I must confess that this was not because we're athletically inclined, but rather because we found the cutest little cat and kitten family living under the stairs on Nautilus Alley! I do hope that they're alive and well.
All in all, while Phuket wasn't my cup of tea, I can't fault the accommodation at The Shore. If I had to return to Phuket, I would definitely stay there again.
