“Heavenly Peace”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This anexxe to the Katathani is pure luxury. We were priveledged to experience the luxury and privacy offered by this resort. We had a package deal with the Katathani ( Goiing back this october with a package that includes The Sands... another Katathani small hotel). The Shore is the perfect spot for couples to connect or re connect... The view and private pools are world class. I will definitely return there. The "After Beach" bars that overlook the resort are a great distraction at sunset.. try them out..

Room Tip: Look out for a package deal via email promotions..

Me and My wife just got back to from our honeymoon, and honestly words alone cannot describe how beautiful the shore is and how perfect the staff made our honeymoon. When we got there we were warmly greeted by the staff and the resort manager Sabina, who was soo lovely. We were given room 8842 which was just out of this world, our jaws dropped the minute we entered the room and were shown around. The room had everything from a coffee machine to digital tv/dvd player, bose speaker for ipod etc, free wifi and the setting of everything was spot on.
it is how it looks in the pictures and more. The villas are directly on top of kata beach and there are other beaches around the corner too. The main area of patong is about a 20-30 minute drive which the hotel offers shuttle buses or organises a taxi, which we did. Everyday the staff did something for us which was soo overwhelming, weather it was housekeeping leaving cakes in your room for you, to flower surprises, fruit platters.. the kind gestures just kept coming and it was soo lovely. A special thanks to Mimi and Jai who were the buggy drivers, these guys will make you laugh, will pull out every stop to make sure you are having a great time at the shore..by the end of the holiday I felt as though I had known them for years, great asset to the shore as well as the other staff. Breakfast is really nice aswell, you can choose to have it in your room for no extra cost or downstairs in front of the beach at the harbour which is also fantastic...don't forget to visit the scala which is a top restaurant and the food is delicious! room service 24 hours for food, burgers, thai food etc and we also used the main resort facilities aswell, like snooker, ps3! table tennis and other activities. Some Local shops, supermarkets and restaurants are a 2-3 minute walk from the lobby. Having travelled a lot, I can honestly say the service you receive here is unbeatable. 5stars to the location, the view, and the staff. Thank you to everyone at the shore for giving us a truly unforgettable honeymoon. We miss you and hope to return again soon! Taj and Bhavna
P.S. We booked through travelbag and everthing was perfectly pre booked including all transfers and rooms in Bangkok too as well as Phuket.

Room Tip: We booked a seaview villa- unbelievable view.

Picking a hotel in Phuket was difficult. They tend not to be on the beach. We then came across The Shore and went for it (even though it's much more than what we would normally pay!) and I'm so glad!

It's an hour away from the airport which is a pain but once we started to drive through Kata it was worth it as it's so much better than Patong!

We had villa 8862 which is on Lobster alley. We could walk directly to the beach and the Harbor so didn't have to wait for buggies.

When you walk into the room you are in awe. The room looks out to Kata Noi beach. It was amazing! The patio are is out of this world with it's cabana and private pool. There's also a seating area where we had breakfast the first morning. There was a lot of food (we only ate about a third and did feel bad it was wasted!). Each evening we watched the sun go down from our pool. We didn't want to leave.

We had lunch at the harbor which was reasonably priced considering the price of the rooms. Room service was also a good price. We also had dinner at La Scala at the Katathani. Have to say that was one of the best dinners we had in Thailand.

Thai service is the best in the world. The staff were attentive and arranged anything we asked for within minutes.

If you are coming to Phuket then there is only one place to stay...The Shore! I'm glad we paid the higher price and went for the sea view. Best hotel I've stayed in!

Wife and I went there last Feb, 2012 for our honeymoon. The room was setup with the honeymoon settings with towels folded/twisted into swans, flower pedals spread across the bed, it was perfect. Wife loved it and so it was worth every penny paid.

The room was clean and well-kept, everything worked like it's supposed to. Spacious and nice, but lacks a bit of flavor. The patio was great for chilling out, having breakfast and reading a book. Couldn't find many faults with the room, except the toilet was lacking ventilation. The sunbeds were great, and my favorite spot to lay about in the day time with a beer. Noticed ants crawling under the sunbed mattress on the last few days of our stay though. The pool was pretty, but sadly, water was a bit too cool for us for dipping/swimming the time that we went.

It was cool to lie around on the sunbeds looking down at all the beach goers enjoying our private space. (seaview pool villa) The view is beautiful.

Service was good, everyone was pleasant and polite. We did wait for a while at times for the golf cart to come pick us up to get down to the lobby, but only when it was "rush hour" before dinner time when many others were also heading down. Other than those times, service and the cart showed up fairly quickly.

Breakfast service was nice too, you write down what you like on a card the night before and hang it outside your door. They bring it to you at your chosen time, set out very nicely.

We'd definitely love to go back again one day.

Room Tip: Seaview if you don't mind the noise in the day time.

Let me start by saying the quality of rooms, service from staff and food were all excellent.
So why no 5*

Well for me if you're idea of relaxation is sitting by your room pool and reading or surfing the web then you're going to be disappointed. The Internet is near useless and consistently drops out. The bandwidth isn't good enough for video link and in my mind that isn't good enough for €400 a night. It need fixing for me to come back.
On top of that you haven't go security catches on the door which means you constantly have to be wary of very helpful staff entering the rooms.

So on the upside beautiful location, fabulous views, great staff and most relaxing place but please do get your Internet sorted!!

If you are going up to Phuket and want to treat yourself to a little luxury this is the place for you. from the moment we arrived - checked in by Sylvia to the moment we left we were treated like Royalty. What you see in a brochure (doesn't do it justice) and on the net is exactly what you get and more ......... The rooms are to die for (we had room 8822 - bit of a walk but hey after eating breakfast - you could have anything you wanted. so much to chose from - we needed the exercise - golf buggies available to take you anywhere and there was no waiting around for them - if you needed a lift they were there instantly) you have your own personal inifinity pool, dining area, inside/outside bathroom and beautiful bedroom. Very hard to put into words just how special this place is. Restaurant downstairs was fantastic and again service was brilliant. You can use all the facilities of sister hotel next door and they have 5 beautiful restaurants - the best of which was La Scalla (Italian) food was out of this world - just like being in Rome or Capri !!!!! Kata Noi Beach was beautiful and know some people have put up reviews about lots of rubbish being on the beach - but lets face it - its us as holiday makers/tourists that cause this - we stayed here for 8 days and every day there were people on the beach picking up rubbish that had been washed up on shore, but nothing took away from the fact that this place is just so beautiful. On our anniversary we came back to a beautiful SURPRISE - our room was "romantacised" - rose petals everywhere and beautiful towel elephants made into heart shapes covered in roses - very hard to describe - but lots of hard work put into our room to make it even more beautiful and special heart shaped cakes made especially for us - very yummy !!! During our stay - our room had lots of special "animal towels" made up as a surpirse - absolutely amazing. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for totally "recharging our batteries" x

Room Tip: We had room 8822 and it was perfect - so quiet - but when we go back we will probably put in a reque...

We stayed at the pool view villa for two nights. It was great. The Kata Noi beach was just around. There was access to the beach from the hotel. The breakfast was great. The pool in the villa was great and the pool in the hotel was great, too! The room was always clean. The villa was more beautifue the the photos I saw in the internet. Highly recommended.
