    We stayed 6 nights and chose a Junior Suite. The outlook over the pool and the ocean was just sooooo very relaxing, neither of us wanted to leave when the time came to fly to Bangkok for the next part of our holiday. I loved the fact that you could nominate if the bed was too hard/too soft, and the bed was adjusted accordingly. We slept very soundly. One night we booked the "full moon dinner" - a romantic alfresco dinner - and even though (being the beginning of the monsoon season) the table was relocated to an undercover area due to light rain, we felt very spoilt and enjoyed the lovely gourmet multi course dinner served by very attentive staff. The Katathani has a number of "theme" dinners during the week, and we enjoyed the italian buffet - one of the best Fettucines I have every tasted. We also took part in the on-site fruit carving lesson which was really worthwhile and the best way to spend an hour or so on a hot and humid afternoon. I spent a bit of time lying around the pool (to do a bit more relaxing!) and even got my hubby to have a poolside foot massage plus manicure and pedicure (he's usually a bit too macho for this, but he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and says that he might just try that again sometime!!). With 850 meters of sandy beach right on the doorstep of the resort, it was lovely to walk along the beach and watch the setting sun. I would recommend the Katathani to anyone wanting a relaxing and stress-free holiday.

    Nothing really negative to say at all. The only thing I can think of is that the Katathani is located in Kata Noi which is over the hill from the main Kata Beach shopping/dining precinct, and even though we walked the hill a couple of times, in the heat I would suggest that a taxi (200 Baht) is the best way to get into Kata. (Most of the hotels in Kata beach aren't on the actual beach, so this is the compromise. The Katathani has everything you need, and there are a couple of local restaurants and small shops directly across the road from the hotel's main entrance, so you are left not wanting for anything.

    Comfortable rooms with an excellent service. Large space around pools easy access to the beach. Wifi worked well but could be a bit faster.

    Fabulous

    We liked that you could change to a softer mattress on request. We liked the late check out, which helped s greatly with our travel arrangements.

    Some areas of the resort need a freshen up - such as front of the hotel and the elevators. We did not really enjoy the meal (set menu) at Fishermans Wharf - food was plain and tasteless.

    Great!

    Inability of many of staff members to communicate in english. It is not fair towards the guest nor the employee.

    Superb

    Hotel staff made the stay excellent. There are plenty and different things to do. The location is far better than other resorts in Phuket island (probably best within island) and although at the south end it is not disconnected in terms of activities. Hotel is great, rooms also, facilities very good. Restaurants are very good.

    Breakfast is fairly good but far from restaurant quality. Internet is slow and painfull. Just for email download (essential needs) it is very time consuming especially when someone doesn't want to spend much time on PC.

    Very good

    Beautiful well tended gardens. Nice big rooms with good facilities. Friendly staff. Well tended pool areas with an adult only pool.Good for families.

    Area immediately round hotel was lacking in facilities and was very quiet. We had to walk over the hill to Kata Yoi for a selection of shops and restaurants which was quite a struggle in the for us as a "mature couple" of which one of us has mobility problems. Unfortunately it was impossible to get a taxi at a reasonable price for the very short distance from the hotel or anywhere else- 200 bhats is extortion!! Obviously all the taxi drivers have arranged this between them so a fair rate cannot be found. In Bangkok we travelled for much greater distances at a fracton of the price and in a capitl city too! The hotel should organise a shuttle bus at a nominal price to take people over to kata yoi every few hours during the day and stop this monopoly by taxi drivers.

    Superb

    We were unhappy with our room the first night of our stay. The next morning we spoke to the front desk and they promptly moved us to a quieter room. Since only rooms in the rate class below ours were available (we booked a deluxe room and were moved to a superior) the hotel gave us dinner vouchers for our remaining nights as compensation. The resort grounds are beautiful, tidy, have several pools, an onsite mini mart, five restaurants (there is a sixth called The Seacret, but it was never open), two bars (one near the beach pool and another next to the lobby), a spa, and various cafes. I love a resort that offers the comfort of a pool lounging area with a view of the beach. There are waiters on hand and spa treatments available from the comfort of your lounge chair without ever having to deal with sand! Paradise! The daily breakfast buffet had a great variety and the staff were always very, very friendly and helpful. The hotel arranged our pick-up and return to the airport and our boat excursion. It was everything we wanted for a long weekend getaway.

    We were originally booked in room #6102 located very close to the lobby and across from The Pineapple Bar. We wanted a quiet, relaxing, romantic weekend. The noise coming from the bar and hall (the hall in front of our room is a main throughway) was very loud. It was loud until late. The walls are thin so we could hear our noisy neighbors when they returned to their room from the bar, and the breakfast crowd yelling and making noise in the morning on their way to the Cinnamon buffet was annoying. We asked to be moved to another room and were very happy for the remainder of the weekend. Considering the room rates, in room wi-fi should be included. We paid extra for access. Overall, deluxe and superior rooms (superior was better in our opinion) 3.5 stars, grounds and facilities: 5 star, restaurants: 4 star.

    Perfect location and with the most friendly staff I have ever come across.

    Only thing is that the room could now do with some modernisation. We stayed here 5 years ago and the rooms are exactly the same.

    The pools are nice.

    Robbery - that sums up my experience at Katathani! The rooms we booked, Deluxe in the Bhuri Wing, looked nothing like the ones in the picture. There was no glass enclosed shower, the beds were hard, the closets were made of chipboard that was literallt chipping. The shower stalls were sliding plastic doors, no bathtub, no minibar and worse than anything else, each of our 3 rooms reeked of garbage, sewage and mold. The shower drain was also blocked. They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor, with no elevator access on our side. My pregnant sister and infant daughter with stroller had to either go up 2 flights of stairs, or walk all the way to the far end of the building to take the elevator, to get upstairs and then walk back to the suite. The suite was also furnished with cheap, worn out, stained, cane furniture. The only saving grace was that it did not stink. The kids club was also closed! For what we paid - over usd 300 a night, this was a complete rip-off. We paid the extra compared to other hotels in the area because it is advertised as an excellent 5 star holiday resort.I Would not recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be reviewing this hotel on Booked.net.

    Fabulous

    I liked that the resort was located on a lovely beach with quick access to the sea. The grounds were expansive and well laid out. The Italian restaurant was superb. The food was sumptious. The atmosphere was romantic. And, I also loved that the restaurant was nonsmoking.

    There is an adult pool at the resort. This was one of the attractions my husband and I were really excited about. The resort also had lovely family, kid pools. The adult pool was very well labeled as being adult. But, unfortunately the same 3 to 4 families would bring their children over to this pool to swim and make noise. When I asked them to politely use the other pools they did not. I did not like that this was not enforced.

    Very good

    The grounds and pools were excellent. The rooms were out dated, oldish and not what I would call 5 star. We had just come from centara grand at karon beach and that was 10 times better for similar money.

    The rooms were not up to 5 star standard. Bathroom was very small and was pretty much part of the room with only a door seperating it from the rest of the room, no wall. The shower was terrible with little to no pressure at all, would hardly wash the soap off you! Although the room was always clean.
