Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Kata Beach Resort is located directly on Kata beach and has a nice, spacious and airy lobby with a small inner garden, as well as ample gardens outside, adorned with lush vegetation and overlooking the beach. The rooms here are spacious, with the only drawback being the rather shabby bathrooms.

    Location 5.46 /10

    As its name suggests, the hotel is located on Kata beach, one of the most popular in Phuket. It is some 30 mi from the airport (allow between 50 minutes and an hour by car) and about 12 mi from the town centre.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    With no fewer than 275 rooms, the Kata Beach Resort is certainly worthy of its name. It is a large hotel, but because it is only 4 storeys high, it is not as daunting a complex as you might think. All categories of room are spacious, with parquet flooring and a small lounge area next to the window. Of course, it is worth reserving a room with a sea view and balcony, if at all possible. The rooms are fully-equipped, and a bottle of mineral water is also provided for guests on arrival. The only drawback is the condition of the bathrooms, which are a bit shabby and could do with a thorough renovation. The clothes rail could even pass for an antique!

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Kata Beach Resort is housed in a 4-storey building with a tree-lined interior patio and is designed in the style of a large beach complex. Although the hotel building is not tall, it is still something of a sprawling complex. The reception is decorated mostly in shades of red, and the interior patio is reminiscent of a Chinese pagoda, and once you get past this part of the hotel, you reach the extensive gardens overlooking the sea and the swimming pool. The spaciousness of the surroundings is another of the hotel's strong points. The spa consists of a massage room for two people and a sauna, whilst more active guests will be pleased to know that there is also a gym so you can work out, should you so wish, and excursions are organised from an office set up in the reception area.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The Atrium Cafe, just next to the reception, serves breakfast inside or on the terrace, weather permitting, as well as a wide range of ā la carte Thai, Asian and Western dishes. Other options include the Italian restaurant and the pool bar, which serves snacks and, most importantly, has a 'happy hour'. There is also a restaurant close to the beach which is open to non-residents and where seafood dishes and lighter meals are served at lunchtime.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach is undeniably one of the hotel's best assets, if only because it has a virtual monopoly of this part of the coast. Kata Noi beach is also a winner, big enough to be able to relax without being crowded out by neighbours on all sides. It is large and pleasant, albeit a bit breezy from May to October, and the good quality water of the Andaman sea, together with the beach's gentle slope, should please all the swimming enthusiasts among you. However, the beach itself has very few areas offering shade.

    To know

    Like the Karon Beach Resort, this hotel also belongs to the Kata group, so don't be surprised if the decor looks familiar.

      Like its cousin, Peach Hill, the Andaman Cannacia is not located directly on the seafront but is only 500m from Kata Noi Beach. Since the road is fairly busy and there is a steep climb up from the beach, the establishment provides a shuttle bus during the day to get there. Despite this inconvenience, the Andaman Cannacia is a pretty little establishment and a pleasant place to stay. The facilities are very well maintained and the rooms are really quite nice.

      The Peach Hill is located near Kata Beach though not, unfortunately, on the beachfront itself. To compensate for this, the hotel provides a free shuttle service to take guests to the beach every day. Given that the hotel opened over 15 years ago, the facilities here are a little outdated, but are nevertheless fairly well maintained, and you'll be sure to receive a warm welcome. You might also be interested to know that the hotel attracts a fairly lively clientele.

      The Phuket Graceland opened in 2005 and it has the advantage of a fine central location on Patong Beach, a good set of facilities (including its own bowling alley!) and comfortable, well-equipped rooms. The downside of the hotel is its proximity to the road, which means that some parts of the hotel, especially one of the pools, suffer from traffic noise.

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
