“A pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Had a great 12 day stay at the resort in November 2013. Clean and spacious rooms. Good breakfast, even though I would've liked a more varied selection. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the staff at the front desk.

Location is good, if a bit "hidden". I tend to prefer my hotels to be beach front, but the 200 or so meters walk to get there wasn't too bad :)
There's also a fair amount of shops, restaurants and transportation options within a couple of minutes walk.
All in all, a pleasant stay.

Stayed for almost two weeks and had a really nice stay. Friendly staff, nice and clean rooms and a really great location with the beach, Shops, Restaurants, bar's and taxi / tuk tuk only minutes away. Overall my stay was pleasant and i would really like to stay at Sugar Palm on my next visit.

Lovely stay, no problems. Clean, very comfortable and great location for the beach, restaurants, shops etc.

Our room was huge! Had a bath in the actual room as well as separate shower room.

Great selection at breakfast - both western and Thai.

We ended up in this resort as a result of not being able to be accommodated in the resort we had originally booked in Kata. It is central to the beach and well located but is tired and realy needs some TLC. Our room had no shower grate in the floor and we had to have the fan on in the bathroom to constantly to keep the smell at bay. The towels are grey and need replacing badly. Our room was a poolside room and faced the pool maintenance shed that was left open all day with the pool cleaner left outside which was not only unsightly, but a trip hazzard. The exterior is currently undergoing renovations which was also noisy and unsightly........having said that, it is needed.

Situated at the end of a short Cul-de-sac in the centre of Kata and only a short 5min walk to a beautiful curved long beach and a permanently warm turquoise sea.
I stayed here for 9 nights in October 2011, having left Bangkok, what a contrast. (No reflection on the later as each have their individualism and beauty).
This is a lovely hotel and very reasonably priced, the rooms are adequate in size, nicely furnished, with quiet modern air con, and a tv that works showing English channels . The room service and house keeping are excellent, towels and bed sheets changed daily. The staff are pleasant and helpful, most of whom speak good English.
It has full facilities, including a lovely outdoor swimming pool which was clean and refreshing.
I chose to have a street facing room, which I was warned by the receptionist could be affected by outside noise, well, it was, but not unpleasant noise, although to some they may have found it intrusive, just down to personal choice.
The street noise consisted mainly of a mobile DJ unit on a specialised Tuk Tuk type vehicle churning out continuous 80/90s western pop hits. This was in position every night from about 8pm till midnight at the entrance to the cul-de-sac. It certainly livens up the street.
At first it was annoying, but after a few hours I found quite enjoyable. Just a bit repetitive.
I did not eat at the hotel as I spent much of my time out and about, but I understand there was an excellent variety of good food, both Thai and Western.
Every type of shop, service and restaurant is available within the immediate area of the hotel.
The sea and beach are just magic, and totally safe, for both adults and children. Several sea sport type activities are available, for hire, including jet ski's, and beach furniture.

Excellent resort with friendly staff. They will do their best to accommodate any request you have. I was always greeted by name by almost every staff member. Pool access rooms have a very modern feeling to them and give you your own personal gate to get in/out of pool on your own patio without having to wall around to your front door. Very well located with close access to beach and shopping.

Room Tip: Never noticed much noise anywhere on the resort grounds other than your normal city noise and the cl...

When I visit Kata beach, I always use this hotel. Easy to connect to beach!
Room is really modern and clean, you can take your family also.
