    Location 4.46 /10

    On the southern extremity of Kata Beach, one of the most southern beaches on the west coast of Phuket. Phuket Town, on the east coast, is around 12.5 miles away and the airport is 28 miles north, which is around fifty minutes by car.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The Pop Cottage has 114 rooms (22 superior of entry standard level, 53 deluxe, 3 studios and 36 junior suites), where the style and the equipment correspond to its entry level standard classification: there is no profusion of comfort, but the essential is there (air conditioning, telephone, minibar, etc.). Basic, simple and clean rooms. The decoration has a modern Thai taste, which means it favours paving and a bit "lazy" colours. A good point: the terrace is a real terrace, and not a simple balcony.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Built in 1989 and extended in 1999, the Pop Cottage evokes a former guesthouse which would have decided to convert to a traditional hotel. Installed on a steep hill overlooking Kata beach, the hotel is composed of three different buildings on three levels each, with a chisel structure which follows the relief. Surrounded by other buildings, the Pop Cottage is clearly a bit tight on its parcel, which means that the space of the commom areas (swimming pool, lobby, restaurant, etc.) is limited.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The catering of the Pop Cottage (two restaurants but only one is open in low season) follows the general style of the establishment: basic service, nothing more or less than that. Therefore, it is no surprise that you will find an ordinary menu offering the usual choice of actual Thai dishes, accompanied by a selection of classics from international cuisine. The same applies for the drink list.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Shorter than those of Patong, Karon or Bang Tao, Kata Beach is anyway one of the loveliest beaches in Phuket. Not very windy, with trees, it still has a small preserved side which gives it a lot of charm. The water of the Andaman Sea, of a good level of cleanliness and of satisfactory level, will meet the expectations of swimming lovers. However, note that it is really busy in high season. Despite the asset which includes Kata Beach, the Pop Cottage is a bit penalised for its location set back on a hill, which forces its guests to walk a few minutes to reach the beach.

    To know

    In 2002, the hotel added a children club and a business centre. It also renovated the lobby and the restaurant.

      One of the vastest hotels in Phuket for its accommodation capacity. Not favourable to privacy, of course, but the Kata Thani compensates this weakness with a real asset: being almost a monopoly on the nice beach of Kata Noi.

      In order to diversify its offer and provide something to keep everyone happy, The Old Phuket has added a second building to its complex, meaning that it can now offer modern designer rooms in contrast to the traditional Thai decor of the original rooms. The Old Phuket is in Karon Beach, but it is not a beachfront hotel. As Thailand's beaches are public places, the hotel does not provide beach equipment for its guests.

      • Location 5.46

      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!
