Nice Asian-themed hotel, good location
Well-maintained, pictures look the same as actual (lobby & room)
Upon arrival, the lobby was very welcoming and relaxing. The staff provide cold towel and cold drink that is perfect after a tiring journey from Bangkok, airport then hotel.
The rooms is Asian-themed and well-maintained. Doesnt feel like an old hotel. The bed and sheets are nice. The room was spacious and has a good pool view. It has a balcony that lets you access the pool easily, however our room was on the first level. If you prefer privacy, best to have yourself located on a higher level. Didn't really swim but an eye sore to the whole hotel was the mushroom-shaped fountain located at the pool (probably for kids/family).
The location is Great! Main road, an easy and short walk to the beach (but they have free shuttle service also). There are many restaurants and establishments (massage,salon,internetcafe) around the area, even money exchange. Hotel also has 30 beach beds at Kata Beach you can reserve because if you don't other beds have charge (THB100).
Food was nothing spectacular. Buffet breakfast had a lot of choices but not too great and tasty.
FREE internet is a good deal and accessible all around the hotel (wifi).
Overall, will recommend for travelers (family & couple) to stay here. Kata is a more relaxed area compared to Patong Beach where the night life is. If you prefer to stay at an Asian-themed hotel rather than a modern ambiance, Kata Palm Resort is perfect!

good location, very nice 4 star hotel
rooms, location, great buffet dinner
I booked this hotel for my parents during their stay in Phuket.
They were very satisfied with all facilities of the hotel and the rooms. They loved the dinner buffets which the hotel organized twice a week including show/performance.
Nice big pool.
Mostly families with small children and more older couples.
Beach: 10 minutes walk.
Plenty of restaurants/bars and little shops just outside the hotel.

Disappointing for this price !
Pool access rooms are overpriced. . Swimming pool could be lovely

Not worth the money!
Location in the centre of Kata is great
This resort is not what is appears in the photos. The rooms are tired and dated - particularly the bathroom! Whilst we were staying here we got told that the hotel was fumigating due to mosquitoes - there was no prior warning before our arrival. Thankfully after arguing incessantly with the staff we were able to get a refund for 3 out of 5 nights of our stay. Also be wary of the location - it is right in the middle of the main stip in Kata.
Stay in Patong if you would prefer nightlife

this is a good location for staying in kata those it's a bit far to walk to the beach from the hotel. also it's better to have more beach-side chairs for staying guests. i and my family like the swiming pool, it is nice and clean. the view from the room is good and also its surroundings. the hotel restaurant should have more menu for selection.
It's good for staying in Kata beach.

Amazingly Beautiful Resort - Get what was promised
Natural, Beautiful, Serene, Natural, Very Cozy Room for Couple and Comparatively a very good Restaurant. Free Internet Access
This resort is one of the best resorts I found out in that Kata. Initially I was thinking what kind of resort would it be, would it give me as much as it promised. But after I visited and stayed in it, there could have been no happier couple than us and not a more beautiful resort for a honeymoon than this.
Let me list out few good points of this hotel that I found out during the stay:
1.Very beautiful entrance lobby and rooms prepared preserving the beauty of Thai culture – Very good for photography.
2.Very comfortable and cozy rooms with minibars mini-freezers, hot-tubs and a great bed!
3.The room looks out directly to the big swimming pool with small fishes swimming to your attic(Get a Ground floor room for this).
4.Rooms are also fitted with climate control ACs, showers with hot water 24/7 and a digital safe to keep your valuables.
5.You can sit on small chairs on the swimming pool itself and have drinks during the day.
6.The resort is filled with beautiful palm trees which keep the resort cool even during the day.
7.The breakfast is ample and amazingly refreshing – good English breakfast.
8.Staffs understood English quite well – a very plus point – believe me.
9.Cabs and tours available from hotel 24/7.
10.On the left of the hotel, there is the shopping mart and these restaurants and on the right of the hotel you will find Thai spa massage centers.
11.Just 5 mins walk to the Kata Beach which is itself very beautiful – No crowding
12.You have musicians in the open air restaurant of the hotel in the evening.
Overall this resort was amazing!! A very good VALUE FOR MONEY! If I go to Phuket again, then I will definitely go to this resort again.
Thanks Agoda and Thanks KATA Palm Resort for such a good holiday.
Nearby Complexes are a bit costly. I suggest you take a cab to TESCO LOTUS Mall where you will get everything at a much lower price. The to-n-fro taxi fare is 800 Baht for a round trip and the maximum waiting time is 2.5 hours.
You can book tours from the hotel itself. The staff will suggest you to book the “Phi Phi Island Trip”. But II would personally suggest you book the “James Bond Island Trip” which is more fun, more activities and more picturesque.
Be sure to try out the pancakes from the footpath mobile pancake stalls. Go ahead and give out a customer order of “Cheese Pancake with Blueberry JAM”. You won’t find it in the menu but they will make it for you at 50 Bahts which is very reasonable in that place. Believe me it tastes amazing!
For meals, try out this hotel's restaurant or Natalie's to the left of the hotel.

Very nice location, staff very friendly, good pool access room
kata palm resort is a wonderfully located hotel which is within walking distance to the famous kata beach. you will need to goto the frontdesk and get the complimentary beach chair coupons. very nice neighbourhood as well, with lots of great restaurants and shops opening until late.
