Dear Thank you very much for choosing Centara Kata Resort and for taking the time to write a review of your stay. Feedback is invaluable in helping us to understand our guest experience and guiding us on how to make improvements, with that in mind your comments have been shared with the team. Check in time is set at 1500 Hrs, you accessed the room at 1000 Hrs which is actually really good when you consider checking out is 1200 hrs. Flying from Europe and arriving early morning into Asia can be challenging with a young family and we always give rooms as soon as we have one available regardless of time, we also provide showering facilities and changing rooms for those who wish for it.We do believe we are making every effort possible but will continue to try to find a way to improve. Guest experience is something that we take great concern over and we will work to improve the areas mentioned and would hope that you will find the time to return to stay with us again so that we may give you some more fond memories. Regards Centara Kata Resort Management

Not sure if this is too late to be of use... We got a taxi from the airport, not prebooked we just walked outside to the taxi rank. It was 1000THB. On the way back, we used the hotel transfer service which I think from memory was 1500THB. Enjoy your trip.

Hi, how much is the bond amount required at check in
We have prepaid our stay incl breakfasts for 8 days but we only paid TBT2000 as deposit and was refunded on checkout because we didn’t have lunches or dinners nor bought any drinks. Instead we ate out (a lot of restaurants surrounding the resort and a convenience store at the front gate) and all our needs are easy to buy outside.

Having stayed at Centara Karon twice and recently Centara Kata, family of 7 (2 adults and 5 kids)...we went for the baht bonanza scheme the first time, and opted not to use it the last two times. We did use the pool bar but not enough time warrant the baht bonanza..you don’t get your money back that you don’t spend. We chose to purchase the drinks and food outside the resort...7/11 is also good to stock up with snacks etc.

"always do your due diligence when choosing."
"Rooms at the back are for adults only with a "private" quiet pool if somebody wants a break."
"Keep away from access road"
"9505 or ground level =all direct access to pools."
"Quietest rooms are at the back in the Garden area. Good for small children who need naps. There are no lifts so ground floor can be good."
