Metadee Resort and Villas
Ranked #13 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed 27 April 2014

My fiancé and I stayed at metadee for a friends wedding. The hotel was overall very good. We've stayed in patong a number of times but kata was something different. The hotel was great. Good breakfast selection over looking the pool. The pool water was rather warm not cool as expecting in a tropical location
Wifi was good as we could contact family back home. Fast speeds too.
Hotel staff were good. Sometimes the buggy drivers would roll their eyes when asked to drive you up the driveway.
On checkout at 5am we went to fix up our room service bill. The credit card machine did not work for some reason (maybe the banks turn them off overnight not sure) but staff member was quite rude and demanded we pay cash. They ended up driving me down to the ATM at the end of the driveway and left me there to be mauled by the feral dogs that roam the streets. I made it out unscathed and paid the bill to which the staff member was still very rude.
Disappointing finish to the trip.
Apart from that I would stay here again but prefer Patong. As the nightlife is better and the people are more friendly.

Chose to stay here after several research on review sites. Booking with the hotel or OTAs are the same. Would be better off if the hotel offer something additional for direct bookings.

We were well-received at the airport by the staff. Journey to the resort was long but a comfortable one. Arrived to be informed that our private pool villa was ready. What a great news! Check-in was prompt and smooth. Staffs were quite smiley.

We were directed to the room on a buggy. Our room was located more to e end of e resort but was actually just 5 mins walk to the lobby. Our room was extremely spacious. Those who like some privacy would definately love this room. You can use the pool anytime you like because e main pool closes at 7pm. The bathroom was huge with a big bathtub. Overall I just love the room! The only downside would be a small number of flying little creatures.

Breakfast was so-so. Quite basic with addional of a few hot dishes. Coffee served without teaspoon? Self refill? Just some small things for restaurant service improvement.

Reception service was alright. They were friendly but quite blur on several occasions. Proberly due to communication barrier.

The location is quite ideal. Short 10mins walk from the beach. Many restaurants and massage parlour along the way. (The hotel do provide one way transfer every hour from 8am.)

Overall, our stay was a pleasant experience. Will consider staying here again.

We have just spent a week and this lovely private little resort and found it just as good as we did last year, her due to us staying a bit longer we did find a few tiny little faults which I will come onto later.

To start wi, we booked into a pool access villa. This room type is absolutely luxurious. There is a four poster bed with a mosquito net, free tea and coffee, complimentary water, robes, slippers, flip flops, umbrellas, secure safe, freestanding bath, two showers, a small terrace with two sunbeds which leads directly into the amazing warm pool. We were greeted warmly at check in by Farit and our room was ready straight away even though we arrived rather early.

We had breakfast included and we found the breakfast very good. There is a range of english, continental and asian dishes including sausages, bacon, eggs, croissants, muffins, fruit, yoghurts, ham, cheese, fried rice, miso soup, breads, coffee, juices and tea.

The price we paid for our seven night stay was very reasonable at £900 as we got a 50% discount for staying for seven nights.

The bar staff were very friendly and we always had a drink with them each night before venturing out to the main strip.

The hotel is well located with a vast array of bars and restaurants nearby. The hotel is situated down a small road which is easily walkable however they provide golf buggies to ferry you back and to.

The beach is a mere 10 minute walk a way, and they offer hourly shuttles there.

The pool is massive and always warm which suited me, however some people commented it wasnt very refreshing.

We also had a complimentary mini bar which was restocked each day with coke, fanta, sprite and apple and orange juices.

The room was thoroughly cleaned each day by Tim and she kindly organised all of our belongings as ell. She was truly outstanding,

We found the wifi to be excellent, we never had any issues downloading, watching videos and browsing the net.

The things which I believe can be improved upon are as follows:

Turn the music down a bit at the bar. Some nights it was very difficult to have a conversation.

The villa needs to be bug proofed a bit more. There was a clear gap underneath the terrace door which meant we often found geckos, cockroaches and spiders in our room. Not very pleasant when you're as scared as I am by this wildlife!

The pool could be cleaned more regularly. There was often dead bugs and leaves floating around which wasn't very pleasent and this was more towards the villas themselves.

We found the hotel to be very friendly and welcoming overall and feel we got a real good value stay. We also had a bbq night to celebrate Songkran which was lovely. It was all you can eat and they had a little raffle and live music which was a pleasure.

Thank you Metadee for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Pool access villa.

We found this resort to be clean and up to date with beautiful room and bathroom. We had a pool view room and found this to be fine for our needs. I had thought of getting a pool access room, but to be honest it's just a walk down the stairs to the pool so we weren't worried about that. The pool was beautiful and we found we could always find a fairly private part if we wanted.
The staff at Metadee were lovely, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. As the resort was not too big they got to know you quite quickly.
The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable with the variety changing each day.
I would definitely return if I was in Phuket again. Thank you Metadee for such an enjoyable stay.

Like many 'first timers' to Thailand we trawled through many reviews and looked at lots of different places to stay in and around Kata beach. Everyone will have differing requirements but for us they were fairly simple - clean, friendly, not too big a resort you are just another number, good pool and peaceful/quiet location. For us (2 adults and 2 young children ages 5 & 7) the Metadee delivered all these requirements in abundance!
We treated ourselves to a private villa with pool and were not disappointed. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and although the children are in the same room (staff converted the day bed which was equivalent to a king size!) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The main pool which snakes its way around the resort is truely remarkable and a real highlight. We did not find any issues with the staff - they greeted us politely on arrival and throughout our stay - always taking the time to speak to the children and taking genuine interest.
We only had breakfast and the occasional light lunch/snacks at the resort but again could not fault the variety (buffet breakfast) and quality.
Kata beach is a short 10 min (but busy!) walk from the resort and we did not find this a problem - in fact we prefered to be at a slight distance from the busy streets/beach as you can retire at the end of the day to a mini oasis that is Metadee.

This is a nice clean hotel in a good location close to restaurants. We were fortunate enough to get upgraded to a private pool villa which was beautiful. The hotel amenities were great. The buffet breakfast is very tasty and Happy Hour at the pool bar is one to take advantage of. It is a great hotel to spend your days relaxing by the pool. I would recommend this place to others. Approx 10minute walk to the beach

The hotel itself was quite clean and pleasant. There were several families with babies and children there. Rooms were spacious with lovely bathrooms/showers, good AC, and strong WiFi. We had a pool access room, which, to be honest, was not necessary because I would prefer not to jump from the pool back into my room.
Service was mixed. At times the front desk people were quite smiley and helpful. And then you get the eye rolls occasionally from the man who drives the golf cart down the long driveway to the main road (well, don't offer this service if you don't want to do it!!). We were also quoted one price for a van from the airport to the hotel and then when we arrived (at 1am), the man tried to increase the price by 40%. Like…minutes after we checked in…exhausted from our flight in and just wanting to get to our room. We adamantly argued back and agreed to settle it later. The topic never came up again and we paid the original quoted price. But how strange.
Honestly, if you want a nice pool, stay here. Otherwise, there are a ton of resorts that are closer walking distance to the beach and probably just as good. The restaurant was subpar, and we should have eaten more meals out on the main road (cheaper, better food).

Room Tip: There are pool access rooms for a minimal increase.
