I stayed at the sugarpalm grand hillside in early January with my partner. We both loved how modern, clean and beautiful this resort was. After staying on Koh Samui, and other island destinations, having a clean and new resort was so refreshing as opposed to the stuffy run down wood bungalows. The resort staff were helpful, and the view of Kata town/beach (not very noticeable from the rooms, but from the resort it self) was stunning. Yes there was a hill (it is called the grand hillside afterall) but it didn't bother us considering our only excercise was lifting cocktail and beer glasses. If you are unfit.. yes you would find it an issue - however if this is the case the resort has golf buggies to drive you to your room. Didn't have a chance to try the food, so I cant comment on it.
I didn't have a massage at their spa, although when we asked the price and decided to go elsewhere the spa reception lady cut it by half (its still cheaper on the streets). So I assume that the spa prices are negotiable... as per everything else in Thailand! (tours are generally negotiable too - we got 2 for the price of one)
Kata beach itself, while a little crowded, was a lot nicer than Patong beach, and was only 15 minutes away by tuk tuk - it was no problem to get a tuk tuk back from Patong at 3am.
