Fabulous 8 Nights spent at Katathani Resort
We have not long returned home after 8 nights at Katathani Resort. The location of the resort is just beautiful. Its approx a 2km walk into Kata which means that you are far enough away from the noise and hustle and bustle. The staff are lovely, the grounds of the resort are spectacular, the resort has many resorts to choose from and there are a few just outside the resort on the strip. The beach is beautiful and we were very thankful for the adults pool and happy hour 5.30 - 7 pm. The only thing that I could say in terms of feedback is - when we first walked into the room we were a little bit disappointed. Whilst i would say the resort is 5 stars, the rooms (at least our room) was not. We also had our daughter staying in the room, without this extra bed the room would gave felt more spacious however I still feel that the rooms could do with some updating. Tips: we had a pool view room on the ground floor. This was an idea location although next time I would prefer to be on the beach side. Check out the restaurant at The Shores (adults only)- go for dinner and watch the sunset. Just stunning. Taxi fares - these can add up a bit so if you go into Patong make it count, get everything thst you need to avoid having to go again. The litlle Family Mart store in the strip of shops near the resort has almost all that you need and us cheap. The shop selling pillow covers and elephant statues about half way down the stip also sells jewellery however it is NOT sterling silver. They will say that it is but it is not. My ring has turned brass after just 1 week. Katathani is beautiful - you wont be disappointed.
We stayed here for 6 nights and we loved it. All the facilities pools, gym, restaurants and service are excellent. The room is spacious and super clean, the staffs were helpful and friendly. Highly recommended this resort and we’ll come back in the future, thanks
Perfect family holiday with friends!
We just returned from a holiday we bought via luxury escapes and couldn’t have been happier 😀. We are a family of 4, with boys 9 & 11. We shared a pool deluxe room which whilst wasn’t huge it for us was fine. We had a nice view over the pool so when relaxing on our day bed you still felt like a part of the action. We were located close to the shops, breakfast, 4 pools, the beach and reception, so perfect for us. There are enough pools that you don’t feel crowded and depending on the time of day we preferred some pools over other, eg happy hour the beach club so the kids could play on the water slides whilst we drank cocktails over looking the beach and pools. Breakfast buffet is fantastic, there is so much variety from English breakfast, pasta, fruits and cereals, yogurts, cold meats and salad, paisterries, pancakes, waffles and then to pad Thai, Asian greens and soup. The staff were so friendly, when our youngest dropped his plate smashing everywhere they happily helped him whilst smiling and making him comfortable. There were many options for dinner, from my least favourite the Buffet which just didn’t excite me, to amazing Thai, beautiful Italian, really good take away pizzas to my favourite the fisherman’s wharf. But if you want to eat elsewhere there are a few restaurants in the street. Oh and buy the banana pancakes from the street cart at the entrance, so cheap and really good. There are enough massage ladies to ensure you don’t miss out, there is nothing like a massage under the palm trees with the sounds of waves in the backgrounds. The beach is beautiful, whilst I was shocked at the running on day 1 after a big storm I was reminded we are in a developing country and pleasantly suprised at the locals collecting the rubbish to take away. But other days it was beautiful and my husband surfed in the corner every day, rental off a super friendly guy on the beach. Transfers from Phuket were lovely, friendly and felt safe at all times. The staff were all so friendly, our kids loved the greetings and salute from security when they crossed the roads. But it wasn’t just the front of house staff it was all, the gorgeous gardeners, cleaners that were so pleasant and left our room perfect every day, to the maintenance staff who would alway greet you with a smile. The staff were all so lovely. Special mention to the ultimate sunset cocktail, but I could go on and on. Yes they could do with a little painting here and there, the buffet needs a revamp but omg this place is huge and the feeling our family had here surpassed everything.
The resort is very family friendly. The staff in all areas of the resort are warm and welcoming, nothing was an issue for them. Resort is very clean and there is plently of things for the kids to do, great pools, maybe a little more shade around them would be good. Reataurants and bars at the resort cater for all tastes. Totally enjoyed our stay with our children, grandchildren and sisters.
Katathani family holiday
Great holiday resort with everything you could possibly ask for when it comes to an easy family holiday! The staff at the resort were fantastic and having 6 pools with young kids, you never get bored!!
