Lovely Hotel service with a smile
Expansive, several swimming pools and not too crowded
The hotel is in a quiet location Kata Noi. It has a great beach. Spread over a large real estate, so you don't feel claustrophobic. Good variety of restaurants and at a reasonable price.

Comfortable, great hotel away from the hustle
Great pool, excellent food, helpful staff
Had a lovely stay at Katathani. Right from the airport pick-up (strongly recommend to avoid the overwhelming attack of taxi drivers when you walk out of the airport), through to the excellent restaurant options, the great pools, helpful staff - the whole stay was a pleasure. The room was pretty basic, nice enough and great aircon, but we weren't in Phuket to spend time in the hotel room so it suited us perfectly. We particularly liked that we were away from the main strips but still had dinner options around, although some may find it far from the airport and Patong (they offer transfers to both). The lady at the tour desk was incredibly helpful and we booked 2 day trips through the hotel with ease. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, great rooms & fantastic beach
Great location, one of the best beaches in Phuket
most things you'd expect from a 5 star resort, great rooms, service, beach & location. breakfast was slightly above average only though, and can get rather monotonous after a couple of days as there are minimal changes from day to day. excellent internet connectivity in the lobby too.

Very nice pool and beach area
They have different pools in the area and they are all amazing
this hotel is perfect for those travellers who wanted to be away from the busy patong beach.wifi is only free in certain areas and you have to pay if you want access to your room. 500 baht for 24hrs of surfing which is good for 2 days. it is relatively far from the market or bars or other restaurants. there is a bar and restaurant within the hotel and a few eating area beside it but very limited choices and not really tastey. we ordered a medium steak and ended gettinga well-done meat with a texture suitable for a stew. hands up for the pool amenities, very relaxing to just lounge by the pool area to eat, drink, have a massage or even read. the beach is not really suitable for swimming, it more fore surfing because of the big waves. overall this is a good area to chill.

huge hotel - great hotel for family visit
everything is there
We stay with 2 & 4 year old, so it was great that everything we want was right there. Good restaurants (of cause hotel price), many different pools, spa/massage, beach were right by our hotel room, so if children need to take a nap, etc - easy to get around. however, there is nothing outside of the hotel, so if you want to spend all your time with your family in the hotel, this hotel is great. Well, you can get many tours at the hotel tour desk. when we checked in, staff told us not to walk outside at night because there was a lady got rubbed and got killed a month ago.... Also, if you want to take a taxi to downtown Paton, you can go from the hotel with 500baht (one way). Again, if you go to Phuket for party, drink, looking for excitement, recommend you to stay in Paton. If you are with family, dont stay in Paton coz' Paton is filthy, duty, beach is duty as well & will not enjoy with kids.

Lovely Hotel and lovely staff
Beautiful pools and grounds, spacious rooms
overall i really enjoyed staying at the katathani. the staff were very attentive and always helpful. the rooms were a decent size and the grounds were pristine including the pools. the only drawback for me was that it is literally the end of the road. this was not a huge concern for it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of patong although it would have been nice to be a little closer to the action for you only have limited options for restaurants outside of the resort. other than this (and it was not a huge concern) it is a fabulous and relaxing place to stay.

Great resort, great service.
Location right on the beach, terrific selection of pools and restaurants
everything was great, check-in super fast, many beautiful pools to choose from. rooms were very clean and spacious. for a five star, was disappointed in the quality of toiletries provided by the hotel (tiny bottle of bath gel and shampoo, that was it. no conditioner, no lotion, etc.). quality of paper products like kleenex, etc. was also very pool. otherwise, no other complaints. great location. beach is cleaned every day and water super warm. at one end of the beach walk up the stairs to have a meal at villa royale's restaurant overlooking waves crashing on the rocks. awesome. would have liked to see a beach towel exchange service on the beach for wet towels. you were given a clean beach towel every morning, but by the afternoon a fresh one would have been nice. great transportation service to and from airport. spa services were great.

Great location by the beach
Own privae beach. And many pools
The decode is a little dated but it was comfortable and acceptable for a beach side holiday.
