Katathani Phuket Beach Resort

Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is a great and affordable hotel located on Kata Noi, one of the most beautiful beaches in the south of Phuket. Built along a 450 meters sandy beach, this large but very well designed hotel can afford to offer a surprisingly large amount of rooms with real sea views.

The resort is divided in 2 wings: Katathani wing with mostly Seaview Junior Suites and just next to it, Kata Bhuri Wing without sea view but cheaper rooms and an immense pool. Katathani resort has no less than six swimming pools, six bars and six restaurants! And surprisingly we never had the feeling we were staying in a large hotel. This probably has to do with the immense gardens stretching along the entire beach, peppered by a hundred immense coconut trees… the hotel low-rise building also blends very well in the tall trees. Anyway, your eyes are too busy enjoying the tropical setting to notice it anyway.

Our Room at Katathani Phuket

We stayed in a Junior Suite and could fully appreciate the amazing location from the comfortable setting of our balcony, with nice chilled drinks in hands of course. The rooms have been recently renovated and are spotless (we checked). Not only the design is pleasing to the eyes, but the rooms are also very functional, planned with the traveler in mind: large working station, fast wireless internet connection, space for your luggage, plenty of amenities (a bathtub of course) and very important: lots of electric plugs! The seating area is very large and comfortable so 2 people can comfortably relax and work at the same time.

The Location

Katathani Phuket Beach Resort location makes is a great base to explore Phuket: from the hotel you can easily spend the day exploring the beautiful south of the island. Nothing is far: the Phuket Big Buddha, Wat Chalong and the famous Karon Viewpoint are just a couple of kilometers away and from the hill above the hotel, enjoy stunning sunsets from the iconic ‘After Beach’.

You can also do some beach hopping as Kata beach and Karon Beach are just above the hill on one side, Ya Nui and Nai Harn then Promthep Cape on the other. Most of the time you can just play on this superb Kata Noi beach with such beautiful soft sand and clear blue water (at least during high season). Kata Noi is isolated enough to never get crowded and what can be better than spending a lazy day by the pool under the shade of those beautiful swaying palm trees.

Dining at Katathani Beach Resort

Of the six restaurants, we unfortunately only had time to enjoy two. Chom Talay serves an immense breakfast buffet and deciding what to pick among so much choice is a fun challenge, but we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! One evening we treated ourselves to La Scala, the Italian restaurant located above. We really didn’t know what to expect as restaurants located inside hotel are always a bit challenging, often lacking culinary personality. But La Scala was a surprisingly great surprise and the dinner was beyond expectation, the kind of experience you still talk about once back home…

Cozy atmosphere with dimmed lights, soft live piano playing in the background and a really friendly and courteous service set the mood. We just went with the waitress recommendations and ordered Ravioli Trio and ravioli with blue crab as appetizers. Both were delicious, especially the Trio with some truffle inside… This was followed by a ‘grilled Canadian black Angus tenderloin served with pink pepper sauce, grilled Eringi mushroom, sautéed spinach, grilled vegetables and baby potatoes’ and a ‘first- seared fillet of grouper served with potato mash and a delicate Porcini mushroom cream’. We obviously enjoyed the dinner with an excellent Italian wine. Verdict? If you stay at Katathani you’ve got to have at least one dinner there!

Unfortunately we didn’t have time to enjoy the romantic beach front candle light dinner at the beach restaurant. Too bad, it looked so perfect in this tropical setting: beach, palm trees, sunset! (Note that based on its popularity, better book early to get the best table along the sand and come around 6 pm to actually see the sunset!)

There would be a lot to say about the Katathani… they even have their own little night market! But to summarize it in few words: don’t hesitate. Holidays are too short and too rare, so treat yourself to the best holiday experience you can get: a great hotel right on the beach with great rooms and really friendly staff who know how to make you feel special.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 23 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run 2 blogs: Phuket101.net and BangkokUndercover.com, I also manage 30 online travel guides in Asia and beyond, including Phuket.com, Bangkok.com and Bali-Indonesia.com
