My wife and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Kata Beach Resort and Spa and couldn't be happier. All of our expectations were exceeded. The resort location is absolutely incredible. It's one of the only resorts located in Kata Beach that is actually set on the beach front so you can choose to lounge by the pool overlooking the beach or simply walk a couple of steps down to the white sand beach. On top of being located right on the beach, you can also walk right outside the resort entrance to a variety of restaurants, shops, bars, and activities. Andrew (hotel GM) and the entire hotel staff were friendly, helpful, and provided excellent customer service. Our room was above average size, clean and had absolutely stunning views from the balcony. It was located on the 4th floor and overlooked the pool, palm trees and beach. The buffet breakfast is great with a large variety of different foods. Room service was reasonably priced, tasty and the service was speedy, which is always an added bonus. Also be sure to order a pizza from the pool side restaurant. We had our first pizza on our 3rd day and wish we had ordered one sooner as it was amazing. The pool bar has great swim up seats with views overlooking the beach. My wife and I both had two massages from the open air hut right by the pool overlooking the beach and they were great value for money (300 Baht each). Overall we couldn't be happier with our stay. The resort is amazing and the location is as unbeatable. We would highly recommend!

The hotel has a great location right on the beach with plenty of eating establishments in the street right outside. However next visit we would probably look at staying somewhere else because the hotel is starting to get a little tired and we had a few things that we thought could be improved.
1- wifi access cost 700 baht for the week and then when we purchased the package we were surprised that only one device could log in at a time which isn't ideal when we both have wifi capable devices.
2- our beds were originally made as two singles we pushed then together and the base was made with a double sheet but we were left or single blankets on the top.
3- breakfast lacked the wow factor. Pastries were too bready, coffee cups were cleared away half full. There was no hot drinks other than tea and coffee, not even herbal or green tea.
4- we were regularly bitten by mosquitoes at breakfast
5- the first night we tried to eat at the Italian restaurant and the staff sat us on the open side with a storm coming. The rain blew through and knocked out napkins and other stuff off the table and we were left to fend for ourselves.
6-the coffee was only restocked in our room sometimes, the most we ever received was two sachets of coffee and some days we were left with none.
7- the coffee bar down by breakfast was never open.
8- the prices advertised at the hotel for desk for the snorkel trip we looked at appeared to be greatly inflated. We were offered discounts on the listed price almost immediately. We ended up booking through another provider

Set a few beaches south of the full on tourist/party environment of Patong Beach, this is a little slice of heaven. We had a larger room than a normal hotel room and all of the rooms appeared to have the extra space plus a balcony. Our balcony overlooked the big pool area, the lovely sandy beach and out to the western horizon for some beautiful sun sets.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the pool bar service is quick. You can relax around the pool or walk down the stairs to the lounges on the beach. There are a few beach sellers but no way near as many as on Patong Beach. There are shops and restaurants across the road from the front gate and up around the corner to the left, the hotel has it's own beach café as well. Convenience stores, spas, laundry services and tour bookers are also close by. Beware of the dodgy tour organisers who hit you up on the street with lucky scratchie tickets ....... but you should avoid them wherever you go.

We had a beautiful time at this resort. Staff are so genuine, friendly and will do everything to help you. Mattress was pretty hard so we asked for a pillow topper which was no trouble at all and made so much difference. Location is just perfect. View is fantastic and nothing beats sitting poolside/beachside with a cool cocktail absorbing it all. Breakfast is great, dinner with sunset was great and swim up bar very nice. Maria - guest services, you are such a beautiful person going out of your way to look after us and make sure we had a great stay. I will not forget Maria and hope we will meet again soon. My only little issue would be not having free Wi-Fi anywhere apart from lobby. Other than that loved Kata Beach Resort and Spa and will return.
