The Shore at Katathani Resort

Large and luxurious pool villas with a stunning sea-view setting

Featuring 48 pool villas overlooking the Andaman Sea, The Shore at Katathani Resort is a premier hotel that is extremely popular for honeymoons and other romantic getaways. The rooms are packed with 5-star amenities and modern furniture and appliances, and the infinity pool on the deck of each villa is large enough for a party itself.

The sunset-facing location near the south of Phuket is in a quiet upscale area, with at least a few other options not far from the property. Patong Beach and its shopping and nightlife are a fairly short taxi ride to the north, so this is an ideal location to combine peace and a bit of fun without wasting a lot of time in between. As one of Phuket’s highest rated and best reviewed 5-star resorts, The Shore at Katathani Resort is popular and often booked well in advance.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the The Shore at Katathani Resort are almost universally excellent, with a huge majority awarding 5 out of 5 stars. This is a popular resort for honeymoons and other splurge trips, and those guests seem to be very happy with their choice. The large pool villas and excellent views are among the highlights for most, but it’s the personalized and professional service that seem to get the greatest raves.

The food in the restaurant and the service at the lounge are also very popular. With so few complaints of any kind it’s hard to take any seriously. As long as you realize that this is not in the Patong nightlife area and it’s not well suited to families with younger children, The Shore at Katathani Resort seems like an excellent choice in the higher Phuket price range.
