Not quite 5 stars
Reviewed 8 hours ago

So for our purposes on this recent trip to Phuket, this hotel was perfect. It is in a quieter location that after doing tours all day or traveling to Patong is a perfect place to come back to. The private beach is stunning, clean, and not overcrowded. The resort grounds are really beautiful and have several pools to choose from, as well as good restaurants and a nice beach bar. However, the service and things related are not 5 star. At 5 star resorts, the baggage people do not stand there and ask for or look at you expecting a tip. It's awkward and 5 star resort staff pride themselves on simply providing outstanding service and do not expect a tip and often may even reject one. Not the case at all at this resort. My brother and his new fiancé got engaged on the beach our first night there and we asked if the hotel could do rose petals and some sort of celebratory desert in their room at turn down service. It was 6:30 that evening and they said that it was too late but they could do it the following evening. We were disappointed but said ok. It was never done. They forgot. The staff is friendly enough but definitely not 5 star standards. Also, the bathroom amenities are bare minimum. They only provide shampoo, liquid, and bar soap and very low quality. And bring your own toothpaste because theres is barely enough for one use. They don't replenish those things each day either even when yours is half used or all gone. We had to call to ask for more. So it's little things like that that make this more of a 4.5 star hotel than 5 stars. Overall, this suited our needs because we were not just staying at the resort the entire time. We would have chosen somewhere else if that had been our intention this trip. If you have a family with kids this is a great spot.
Also, double check when you make an airport transfer reservation. I filled out the form on their website and then they sent me an email saying it was confirmed. Then later I got another email asking what car I wanted and informing me of the price. So I needed to reconfirm again saying I did want the car and the price was ok. I didn't do that because I thought my first email meant the pickup was confirmed. So we had to get a taxi from the airport which was pretty easy and 700thb cheaper. So double check that if you go that route.

Overall is excellent

Have just come back from our second visit to The Katathani beach resort . Loved it even more than the first time . Our last 3 nights we were given an upgrade to The Shores which we loved aswell . On a Luxury Escape deal which is fabulous . The food choices at all the different restaurants gives you a lot of different options and its great value . Massages are included aswell in the deal so its great if you want to just relax and not venture out to much . The only decisions to be made are , pool or beach swims and what will we eat next !! We will be back again next year for sure

Nice place service let’s it down a bit

Staying here now in the Thani Wing which is preferable to the other area, Bhuri I think. Room is spacious and nice feel. Massive king bed and comfy doona. Beautiful grounds with plenty of lovely facilities. The beach is the best of all. Water fluctuates between calm then rolling waves some surfable. There are stinger warning signs for the ‘summer months’ but no stings while I’ve been here. The resort is huge and takes up the entire strip of beach. Service is a bit hit and miss. The lady who cleans my room is wonderful and leaves a gorgeous new towel origami every day - room spotless and nice note left for me. The bar staff (behind the bar) are a bit cool and unfriendly and service not great nor proactive. Security staff on the beach are lovely and friendly. Prices are on the high side across the restaurants and bars. There are a few restaurants over the road which are ok. Would be a great place for a family with young kids as everything at your fingertips in the resort. It is quite peaceful as isolated from the main strip of restaurants and shops in Kata. Good breakfast buffet.

Where are the five stars?

Came from Mandarava (absolutely stunning resort) to this shabby place.
Where is the five star hotel? The air conditioning is not scalable and run like a bloody tractor all the time, there are mosquitoes everywhere, thr toilet are in the open with the room (wtf really?), the building is so old that it needs some serious refurbishing.

For cheaper you can get much better resort place to stay: this place is a goodam scam, stay away from it.

Pour les français: évitez ce taudis qui se prétend être un cinq étoiles. Il existe des endroits moins cher et bien meilleur.
