Our first two nights and we stayed at Katathani Beach Resort on Kata Noi beach. It is on a private beach. We stayed in a premier room with an ocean view. Our room had a king bed, which was fairly comfortable and sitting area with a coffee table and day bed. We also had a large bath, shower and standard bathroom amenities. Our porch looked out on one of the 10 pools on the resort as well as the beach. The room was very clean and had very beachy decor with blue and green accents all around. Outside you could see the lounge chairs set up on the grass as well as around the pool and guests having pedicures and massages.
Our stay was two nights and three days. We had a very relaxing time even though there was a bit of rain. During the rain we relaxed in the room, watched TV, movies, and the storm (lol). We got very lucky with some sunshine on our last day and enjoyed the private beach for most of the morning. We also took a swim in the pool which was very nice, but we were only able to hit one of them and apparently there are 10 on the resort. We walked a bit around the resort and found a little lake with a fountain and the recreation room with a pool table and ping-pong table. We also walked by the spa as well as a few markets that are on the resort property. These were very convenient if you needed anything like drinks, sunscreen, clothing, etc. We also had the option to have items delivered to the room next day if needed.
We enjoyed two meals on the property. One was a lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf where we enjoyed some coconut fried shrimp and a salad. The other was at the traditional Thai restaurant which is rated one of the best on the island. We enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend staying here. We also had great breakfasts both mornings we were there. The buffet was very good, but we felt that there was not enough of a selection of asian cuisine as we had hoped. There seemed to be a lot more western options than many other hotels we have stayed in. The Katathani Beach Resort was probably one of the best places we have stayed on our trip. The service was very high class and there was always someone who to answer our questions where ever we were on the property. They even had golf carts to drive us around in the rain so that we wouldn’t get wet.
This hotel was very upscale and had almost everything we needed during our stay in Phuket. You could stay here and never have to leave the resort, but sometimes it is fun to explore other parts of the island. We would recommend the Katathani Beach Resort if you are looking for a relaxing vacation on the beach.
