“Great inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Spent 16 days with 4 youths in June/july. The location and the facilities are stuning. The rooms are ok - at the Buri-wing, the restaurants are ok, the breakfast is good, BUT the surroundings are meager. Katathani Beach is at the very end of a narrow road with nothing around except 10 taxi-pushers and a row of tuk-tuks. So anything you want to do you need to travel. Italian restaurant on premises and restaurant Cinnamon are really nice - not too big and impeccable service. The main restaurant is a bit chaotic. And why are every attampt at entertainemt very poor and bleak impersonations of Elvis and Beatles...we didn't travel all around the world to endure the same as in Puerto Rico Gran Canaria. Go for some well prepared Thai entertainment please. Pools are really nice although main pool was closed for repair until we left.... Not high season abviously. The massage-crew sitting around were not as nice and not as good as the ones just outside on the beach. Free enterprise wins again - go for the beach huts!

Room Tip: We chose 3 mini-suites with sea view at Buri wing - on the beach. They were nice - but if those were...

My wife and i looked at going to Hawaii but decided on the cheaper option of Thailand as we had been to this country 3 times before and after looking at a number of options settled on the Katathani Resort and as booked into the Bhurri deluxe room, on arrival and inspection of the room, which was nice we decided to pay extra and move to a junior suite, best investment we made on this trip. room was great and better view and closer to the beach. there were a number of families in the resort and not having kids jumping in a pool outside your balcony was a much better option.
The service was good and staff very friendly , the breakfast in the Chom Talay was great with and excellent variety and the massages both at the hotel and across the road were just what the body needed not to mention the price. The restaurants were good and prices were reasonable but the Wine was very expensive but beer was cheap and the cocktails and spirits were acceptable For areal special night go to the Momo Tri restaurant just up the hill was excellent but not cheap.
The greatest feature of staying in Katanoi instead of Kata beach was you could have all the hustle and bustle of the area and then return to the peace of the Katathani resort and only 200baht so cheap for the relaxation. Definitely will consider going back.

Room Tip: rooms near the beach are the best option for couples

Katathani Beach Resort Phuket was everything we expected and more. i could not fault the service from ckeck-in until the day we left.
Check-in was effortless. My wife and I were greeted with a with a cold drink and towel. We were accompanied to our room where our bags were waiting, bed turned down and the airconditioner (an essential) was already running.
Our room overlooked spacious well manicured lawns, palm trees and several pools. Beyond this was a quiet secluded beach (Kata Noi). The pools were well appointed with the usual deck chairs, umbrellas, bars, snack booths, etc. Deliscious snacks were available (as if they were needed considering the restaurants within the resort) as was a variety of drinks (local beer, soft drinks, cocktails, wine, fruit juices, etc.
The 6 restaurants catered for every taste. There was Thai, Italian, BBQ, Seafood restaurants besides the many nightly themes. Food was generally inexpensive. Even better value was obtained with the several complimentary entrees we received.
All staff were marvellous. Nothing was too much trouble. The room service people immediately catered to our every whim. Reception and foyer staff were extremely knowledgable and helpful. No matter if it was hotel, tour, general question, etc they were always ready to help or advise. Even the ground staff greeted us with a smile and "saawaa dee krup" (I hope I've got it right - meaning "good morning").
Unfortunately, I was ill for a few days. I can only thank the staff for their efforts in making me as comfortable as possible. The resort has an on-site clinic with qualified nursing staff. I required a doctor to call and this was arranged without fuss at 8:00pm. A member of the reception staff accompanied the doctor and regularly checked on my condition in the following days.
Around the grounds were several staff offering massages, foot massages, manicures, etc. these people were very professional and their services were a reasonable price.
Other facilities to mention are the free wi-fi and computers available.
A word of warning to those requiring nightlife and plentiful shopping. You won't find it in the vicinity of Katathani Beach Resort. The Kata Noi area is very secluded. As such there are only a handful of small shops selling only the essentials. Still, this is the sort of holiday we required. Patong is only about 300Baht (about A$12) away by taxi when required.
Thank you Katathani, for an unforgettable holiday.

WOW!!!!! What a fantastic resort.
We could not fault the place and would happliy return tomorrow.
Everything was amazing. Easy check in, clean and spacious room, relaxing gardens, fantastic pools and restaurants.
Staff were extremely polite and helpful.
We loved the themed nights in the restaurants and the food offered was well prepared and presented.
Buffet breakfast at Chom Talay offered plenty of variety and catered to everyones needs. Poolside bars offered a great selection of the most amazing cocktails.
The perfectly maintained gardens gave a sense of tranquility and offered many places to sit away from the crowds, relax and enjoy.
There were several lovely pools for us to relax in and the friendly massage girls nearby were a real asset.
Proximity to the beach is a huge advantage but what we liked best was that this resort is in a quieter area of Phuket and away from the hustle and bustle of some other areas. It was very easy to get transport to nearby Kata, Karon and Patong but we were so happy to be able to return to the resort and enjoy all that it offered.
My husband became ill from eating outside the resort and staff were extremely attentive and organised a doctor to visit very quickly. We were very grateful for this assistance.
I have no concerns about recommending Katathani Resort to anyone and hope to return again with the rest of my family very soon.
Thanks to all at the resort for giving us a holiday to remember.

Room Tip: We had a room in the Thani Wing. It had wonderful ocean,garden and pool views.

My wife and I stayed at the Katathani for 8 nights. We had a fabulous time! Rooms were spacious and the staff were very friendly and always welcoming.

The resort was situated in a spectacular location. There were always plenty of sun beds and the beach was close at hand for a brisk swim and sunbathing.

The facilities were excellent. There was also numerous activities catering for all ages. The only downside is that the shuttle bus could be more frequent. It ran at 1 o'clock to Phuket Town. Thus the shuttle service could have been extended by running 2-3 times a day.

I would highly recommend the Katathani for a delightful, relaxing and welcoming stay!
