worth the price”
Our first visit to phuket and we know nothing about the island. We just make our reservations by reading reviews of the resort and we book it right away. Wasnt expecting much cause kata is not well furnished like patong but to our surprise the resort was so grant and modern. The room we had was nicely decorated and clean. The staffs were very friendly as they explain to us every function each button has in the room and they have a bottle opener attached to the side of the basin. Airport transfer provided by the hotel was at reasonable rate too and they wear very punctual on arrival pick ups.their vans was very clean and the driver is able to communicate with us in english and guide us a little about the attractions in phuket. I'll definitely stay at kata beach resort again if we were to visit phuket.
This was our first time to Kata Beach, Phuket. Our time spent here was fantastic with no complaints. There were three of us in the room which meant we needed a fold out bed. The fold out was just as comfortable as the main bed. The room was clean as was the bathroom. We were upgraded to the Grand Pool Room which we highly recommend. We didn't have to worry about getting a lounge by the pool and could take dips at any time. Having the beach at the door-step was a big bonus as we enjoyed a swim in the ocean and there were lounges and unbrellas available on the beach for a small fee. The food was always of high standard as was the service. There are also plenty of shops as soon as you walk out of the hotel grounds with restaurants, bars and of course shopping. Kata Beach is definitely the quieter of Karon, Patong and Kata, but this was a blessing. If you want more action, it's easy to take a tuk tuk to the other places in the evening. We highly recommend Kata Beach Resort and Spa and we would definitely return there when visiting Phuket.
Awesomely Perfectly Satisfied!”
Kata Beach Resort was love at first sight. I chanced upon Kata Beach Resort while browsing through Agoda. Went to the official website to find out more. What you see on the website, is what you get! It is rare for resorts/hotel in Thailand to appear as what you see on the website. Hence, 2 thumbs up for Kata Beach Resort!! The resort was so close to the beach, you will think that Kata beach is part of the resort facilities. Even with the close proximity to the beach, the resort is very clean and serene. With friendly staffs, from the bellboy to the security guards, Kata Beach Resort is definitely THE place to be when you are in Kata Beach, Phuket. Truly amazing!
Great location and view of the beach”
We stayed at Kata Beach Resort for 3 nights after spending 4 nights at Metadee Resort. We loved Metadee Beach Resort for it's winding pool and rooms but there's no denying Kata Beach Resort. It's location is second to none in one of the best spots on Kata Beach. The rooms are getting a bit outdated but there's still beautiful and have new tvs. The pool area and view of the beach is great. The only problem is, as many other people have noted, that too many guests try to reserve deck chairs in the morning leaving none for other guests. We didn't found this a bit of a problem but were always able to find two chairs together - maybe this is because we were there in offpeak season. We didn't pay for the breakfast and preferred to get breakfast at the end of the beach instead at one of the restaurants next to Ska Bar. You could get breakfast for two for around 300 baht which was so cheap. And it was great too! The only other issue was paying 150 baht for one hours internet. My partner works in IT and had to log in regularly for work so this was very costly when other resorts provide internet for free. Apart from that, I would still stay at Kata Beach Resort again and would recommend it to others.
Fabulous Hotel with everything you need”
We have been returning to Kata Beach for the past 5 years. We love Kata Beach Resort - stayed here before in 2008 and was fantastic to return. We had two rooms this year - an adjoining for the kids. The facilities are second to none, the location is brilliant with everything you could possibly need right outside the hotel door - shopping, restaurants and of course the Thai Massages. We love that Kata Beach Resort is on the best beach in Phuket, so we can choose to swim in the pools or in the sea. We enjoyed the Thai Buffet night in the restaurant - kids eat free. Was divine. Did I mention the buffet breakfast is superior to any hotel we have stayed in. Great stay - looking forward to next year!
Just everything I expected”
This is the third hotel that I stayed in Phuket for my holiday. I compared several locations before I made my booking. Gosh I'm so glad that I chose this hotel. The location is just perfect over looking the beach and just one step away that's Kata Beach and the restaurants are just around the corner. Public transport, taxi and tuk tuk for the tourists are just right at the front of the hotel. My room was nice and clean and spacious. The staff were lovely and helpful. The breakfast was nice and has some variety but they were about the same everyday. Overall, I'm very satisified with my stay and so were my friends. We've all decided if we ever come back, we will stay at Beyond Kata again.
Dear Dahui, Thank you for such a positive and detailed review, which I am sure other holidaymakers will find helpful. We are very pleased to know that it was all you hoped that your stay was. Glad that you like what the hotel can offer literally on the doorstep of the resort is the incredible ocean view. Having you as our guest was a real pleasure and we look forward to your next visit to Beyond Resort Kata. Kind Regards, Paew / Beyond Resort Kata
We have stayed deluxe room in Kata Beach resort. good things.There is no private beach, but the public beach is just in front of the hotel, it is very convenient. The beach is nice and sunset is wonderful in Kata beach. Our room was in first floor and it was easy access to the pool and beach. But it might also be good to stay in second floor to have a better ocean view. Kata beach resort is a good place to stay if you are looking for these. The service near pool area is good. The morning staff in lobby is helpful but if you arrive at night you may have to find your room by yourself, they are not really helpful at night. Breakfast is good. The room was clean in general. The interior of hotel and rooms have Thai style, in brown, red and yellow colors, not very modern but more in classic style. You can buy tours to the islands or activities about Phuket in the hotel, they are almost same price in everywhere if you want to have a good tour. I recommend ALP (Andaman Leisure Phuket) for islands tour, they are expensive but service is good. Near by the hotel there are a lot of restaurant options which is nice. Small shops and markets are also in walking distance. But not too many bars for partying. bad things... The cockroaches and mosquitoes. If you go to breakfast really early then you can see cockroaches walking around. at night near by the pool and lobby area you can see cockroaches a lot. You have to be prepared for mosquitoes, my friend got 17 bite in 1 night. There is no free wifi in the rooms. There are small white spiders in the wooden furnitures and if you leave any food on the table the next day all around becomes white due to these insects. Massage saloon in hotel is unnecessary expensive. But the one near by the pool was quite ok. Most probably I will not stay in this resort again, first reason I may want to explore other beaches and second is the cockroaches and that white small spiders in the furnitures.
The Best Location in Phuket”
this was the 2nd time we have stayed at kata beach resort, the first time we stayed with our children and 2 other families and could not complain about a thing. march 2012 it was just my wife and i. we found the staff exceptional friendly and helpful. our ocean view room was roomy and very nice. great to watch the sun set. the cleaning staff were trustworthy and did a great job of tiying our room each morning. the buffet breakfast was fantastic. plenty of choice. it was great to sit around the pool looking over kata beach but you need to grab a chair early as there are some patrons that reserve the chairs all day and only use them for 1 hour or so. the resort is close to lots of great restaurants, our favourite was "cafe opera" were we found the food quality exceptional. you can also walk from the resort along the beach to a number of nice cheap restaurants. the ska bar is a must do in the afternoon. kata beach resort. we will definately be back.
Good location, very nice beach”
I followed the other reviews and took the Phuket Smart Bus from airport to the hotel. Bought the Rabbit Card cost 300bt but can use only 200bt. They say the card can be used on bkk's bts too. Trip to hotel is 170bt. Left with 30bt, can't use it until we topped up. Tell the driver where you stay and he will drop you in front of the hotel. The designated bus stop at Kata night market is too far away. Took a tuk tuk to Patong (400bt) to top up the card at McDonalds. Return trip by the bus is only 50bt. In short, can't use the card to go out because the bus stop is too far, but can use the card to return. The public bus at the terminal right next to hotel goes to Phuket town. Advertised only 40bt cash, but we didn't try it. The hotel is quite large, a good mix of guests. Breakfast buffet is average, not enough local food. We got a room facing the sea, so it was very nice. Can sit at the balcony and watch the sunset. Free wifi in the room. Beach is right outside, very clean and calm waters. We like that it is not as crowded as Patong beach. Convenience stores, massage, and restaurants nearby. A good choice if you want to do nothing but enjoy the sun and the beach. Will stay again.
Dear Yet, Thank you very much for taking the time in writing such a detailed review following your stay at our resort. We are happy to know that you were totally comfortable with your assigned room and that you enjoyed the great view. We are also thankful that you recommend the resort so highly and that you will stay with us again. We are looking forward to serving you again. Kind Regards, Paew/Beyond Resort Kata
Kata Beach Resort”
There are many nice things about the Kata Beach Resort, particulary it's location. First of all, Kata Beach is the best beach in Phuket. The reason for me saying this is that it's beautiful, quiet and not too many people are on the beach. Of course if your a college kid I would tell you to go to Patong Beach but those days are over for me. It's not like there isn't any night life around Kata beach. All one has to do is walk down the street for 5-10 minutes and all of the bars, restaurants (great ones) and even miniature golf for the kids is available. The resort is huge and comfortable featuring a large pool and two restaurants.
Beautiful resort, location picture perfect!”
Our family of 6 (2 Aduts + children 16, 17, 19 & 21) loved this resort. From the beautiful pool area (with swim up bar) to the best beach and water sport facilities everyone was satisfied. The meals were great with a wide range on menu and breakfast was a treat. The staff are very nice and helpful with only minimal language difficulties which were always overcome. Kata Beach has a nice little shopping area and we had a couple of favourite shopkeepers there. Karon Beach just up the road had a great shopping strip and we visited there a few nights after dinner as well. Patong is great for a shopping visit and to look at the clubs but very noisy and busy. Tuk Tuks are a must to get around - you really do see the sights. You can negotiate the price before you start off. We hired an air conditioned mini bus from the resort for a day of sightseeing which was really comfortable after getting in and out of sun all day. Don't miss seeing a Monkey Show, Snake Snow or having an Elephant Ride at Kok Chang Elephant Safari at Kata Beach. Phi Phi Island trip is breathtaking - make sure you take sea sickness tablets they give you! Temples are also a must at Changi. The resort was everything we hoped it would be. Total relaxation by the pool or on the beach.
Nice relaxing stay on Kata beach front”
This is a really good option if you need a relaxing place right on Kata beach. The beach in front of the hotel is nice and clean, great for swimming, playing with the family. There are a few operations offering banana boat, paragliding or jet-ski rides if you need, safely organized in a couple of non-swim zones a bit further up the beach. The hotel has a good pool with bar area and pizza restaurant on the front. We had a couple of adjoining ocean view rooms for the family which suited us well. Buffet breakfast was really good. Easy walking from the hotel along Kata main street takes you past all kinds of food options, bars, shops, etc. Great value hotel and a really nice stay in Kata, Phuket. Thanks.
Dear David, Thank you very much for such a comprehensive and very detailed review!! We appreciate you taking the time informing other travelers on what we have to offer. Phuket beaches are naturally clean and beautiful and we are happy to have read that you enjoyed our beach as well as our resort's amenities. As it seems you and the family had a great time, we look forward to your potential next visit to Beyond Resort Kata and to welcome you back for another relaxing and rewarding stay. Kind Regards, Paew/Beyond Resort Kata
Kata Beach Resort & Spa”
We were delighted with our stay at Kata Beach Resort & Spa! They had all of the amenities of a premier hotel and the staff was gracious and attentive during our time there. The pool and sea views were outstanding and the service at the pool bar was prompt, in spite of the fact that they were constantly busy serving all of the guests that frequented the pool. Additionally, the seaside massages were a great value and one of the best we had during our trip to Thailand! This hotel is in a prime location and you can easily walk along the well-maintained sidewalks into downtown Kata and up to Karon. We left and went to the islands for a week and decided to spend our last night in Southern Thailand back at Kata Beach Resort & Spa. I would suggest this place to my friends and family!
Superb location on wonderful beach”
Phuket is a difficult place to find the best spot. There are so many beaches, each with their own attraction. In our estimation, the two best beaches we have seen are Kata and Kamala. Kata is more frenetic and buzzing, while Kamala is more laid back. But if you choose Kata, you can't go wrong at Beyond. The hotel is located right on the beach, and this makes it a perfect location for a great stay. Two challenges. The beach loungers around the pool and overlooking the beach are claimed by guests really early in the morning, and if you snooze you lose. The hotel signs claim that they do not allow reservations of chairs for more than an hour, but this is never seemingly enforced, and so you have act swiftly in the morning to secure your spot. The upside of the location is that the beach is just a few stairs away, so one can always find a relaxing sport there.
We really enjoyed our recent stay at Beyond Kata Resort. Fantastic location being right on the the Kata beach front... amazing views and sunsets by the pool bar overlooking Kata beach. The buffet breakfast could not be faulted with a relaxing outdoor/indoor setting. Staff comprehension of english was limited at times but generally ok. The property is located between Kata’s main street with plenty of thai style day/night life and the beautiful Kata beach, so no need to walk too far for anything. Will definately return.
Great location, clean and relaxing environment”
we had our honeymoon 3 years ago in phuket, but stayed in another hotel, then. we spotted kata beach resort at that time, though, and decided to come to this hotel if we ever made it to phuket, again. after 3 years, we decided to come back and directly reserved kata beach resort without looking at any other hotel. we enjoyed our stay. in fact we stayed longer than we planned at the first place. the hotel is on the edge of kata beach, which i believe is the best in phuket. the service is nice, friendly, rooms are clean. great place for a relaxing vacation. the only con i can mention is the limited buffet for the breakfast.
Phuket February 2010”
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Phuket and to the Kata Beach & Resort Spa. It was an excellent choice for us! Everything was "as advertised", very clean facilities, room, helpful staff, and beach location. Direct access to the beach was a priority and this resort totally met that requirement. Two beautiful pools, the beach location, the food, the proximity to local resturants, and the weather combined to make this a truly special and memorable vacation for us! We would recommend this resort.
Kata Beach Resort & Spa”
Kata Beach Resort & Spa is the best place to stay in Phuket. It is conveniently located close to all the major cities if you would like to go sightseeing or if you just want to hang out at your hotel, it's right on the beach. They have the friendliest staff who always go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. If you are on a budget, just walk across the street from the hotel and there are many inexpensive restaurants and shops to choose from. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Phuket.
during the days in Phuket，ive stayed in two hotels，the other one is Burasari in Patong，Kata beach resort is older and quieter, definitely worth the price. the swimming pools are excellent and the kata beach is just steps away from the pools.the only thing that made me inconvenient was that wifi is chargeable .
The grandest resort at Kata beach in Phuket”
Describe a grand stay.. it was the best stay of my life. everything was awesome. thank you Agoda. the view, the food, the pool and its bar.. watching the sun go down.. absolutely fabulous. i will definitely come back.
