Katathani Phuket Beach Resort

Very large and secluded beach resort popular with families

With 480 guest rooms, the Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is one of the largest hotels on Phuket, and certainly among the largest in the 5-star category. It’s set on large grounds along a lovely stretch of Kata Beach, about a 15-minute walk from the nearest village. Even the least expensive rooms come with amenities like bathrobes and slippers, along with the 5-star features you’d expect.

The Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is extremely family friendly, to the point that romantic couples might feel disappointed, so for honeymoons there are better choices on Phuket. However, for families this one is hard to beat, with four kiddie pools, a Kids Club, and babysitting service. There are also 6 restaurants and 6 bars, so everyone should find something to suit them. This is very popular with families who return each year, which says a lot for a resort on an island with over 1,000 hotels.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Katathani Phuket Beach Resort are generally very positive, but some do find that the prooperty has shortcomings. More specifically, honeymoon couples and others on romantic trips seem to find that this is mainly a family resort, with children in most of the common areas.

Most guests, and especially families, find the Katathani Phuket Beach Resort to be wonderful with great service and a fantastic list of options and facilities. There are also many who seem to return each year, which is a very good sign for any resort hotel with so much competition.
