THE SHORE at Katathani Phuket

The Shore at Katathani Phuket Review

The Shore at Katathani Phuket on Kata Noi Beach is one of Phuket’s most exclusive and romantic hotels, probably one of our best experiences on the island. The hotel combines all the ingredients effortlessly for a perfect escape: a location right on a beach, pool villas with jaw-dropping views, genuinely caring staff, an excellent restaurant, a good spa and countless small details that make the difference between just a regular ‘hotel stay’ in Phuket and a truly unforgettable holiday.

The Beach of Kata Noi

The location of The Shore at Katathani in Phuket is what impresses first, right on and above the secluded bay of Kata Noi Beach, a superb white sandy cove that has remained unspoiled because it’s not on any main road. Most villas offer views of this bay, and you can never get tired of such a panorama, so make sure you book a sea-view villa. The villas are magnificent, designed to take full advantage of these unique panoramas and with evident attention to small details, making it one of the best hotels in Phuket.

The Pool Villas

From your infinity swimming pool to the vintage bathroom, the personalised flower arrangements and even the Lavazza espresso machine, everything is tastefully designed to make your room a nest for a romantic holiday, and you won’t want to leave. Again, this incredible view is right from your bed: open your eyes, and in front of you, clouds are lazily drifting above the ocean and the iconic Kata beach island; you won’t even have to raise your head from your pillow.

Sunrise, sunset and clouds drifting above the turquoise sea make the stay worth every Baht. Eventually, you will have to step out and enjoy the restaurant, and you won’t regret it. Of course, you could order in-room dining too, it’s very cool also, but you would miss a chance to dine by this beautiful beach. Just try both options anyway.

The bathroom is spacious, with a romantic atmosphere couples will surely appreciate. The old-fashioned bathtub with a sea view is the highlight of this room. You will also find all the amenities you can expect from such a luxury resort.

Restaurants and Dining

The Harbour

The Harbor Restaurant at The Shore was a lot better than most hotel restaurants we had previously tried. Set by the side of the infinity poolside and above the beach, it has a very romantic mood and offers an excellent menu (and wine list). Try the Pinot Noir beef braised short ribs (750 baht). These were so good that we had to order them again the next day! Prices are surprisingly reasonable, so don’t be shy about ordering.

The mango souffle (350 Baht) came highly recommended for good reason. You will, of course, find a good selection of Thai dishes, all well-priced: Gaeng Massaman (390 Baht), Tom Yum Goong (320 Baht), Pad Thai (260 Baht) and a delicious Pomelo Salad (Yum Som Oh Goong Sod 240 Baht). If you fancy something else, the Katathani Resort next door is part of the same resort. It has five other restaurants to choose from, including the excellent Italian restaurant ‘La Scala’ we tried on a previous visit.


The Spa

The spa is modest in size but well-designed and a must-do. Our advice is to treat yourself to an hour or two of pampering as soon as possible to cool down from your hectic life and get in a relaxed mood right from the beginning; this will help you make the best of your holiday. You won’t regret it.

The Chapel

The wedding chapel at the top of the hill of The Shore is a spectacular addition to The Shore, already known as one of Phuket’s most romantic resorts. The chapel is the perfect place to tight the knot with a 360 view of the cove below and the Andaman Sea. The hotel can help planning your perfect wedding day.

A special mention about the staff who made sure everything was smooth. They knew our names and which villa was ours, always with a smile and a friendly word. A weekend at The Shore at Katathani was one of the best hotel experiences we had in a long time!

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
