We were really pleased we chose to stay in Kata Beach rather than the busier beaches further north. The beach is smaller and quieter than Karon or Patong and it's only a short tuk tuk ride to Kata Noi, an even smaller and quieter beach a little further south - great beach to chill out for an afternoon.
Kata Minta was exactly what we were looking for - a small, stylish, reasonably priced hotel with Thai furnishings, great service and a lovely courtyard area out the front for dining and bar. Nice big beds and bathrooms with a bath. We had a balcony but never went out there because it looked over another hotel's corridors. They do have rooms with balconies facing the front though.
Most of the beachfront at Kata Beach is taken up by a Club Med resort so if you stay somewhere in the middle of Kata, you'll have to walk the length of the resort to get to the beach. Kata Minta is perfectly located at the southern end of the beach, just 2 mins walk down to the beach.
Most tuk tuk / songtao drivers won't know where Kata Minta is so take a map and their phone number with you.
If you get the chance and have some money to burn, dine at The Boathouse. It's superb food and service, right on the beach and just around the corner from Kata Minta.
