The Shore at Katathani
Ranked #1 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 November 2011

The shore is the most amazing place to stay and, if I could afford it, I wouldn't hesitate to go back. When you first walk into your villa the relaxed styling and fantastic view make you feel instantly peaceful. I don't know of too many holiday destinations where the photos on the website are exactly like the real thing. This place is...if not better.

From the moment you arrive the staff are super friendly and work so hard to make sure your every need is met. It almost makes you feel guilty. Your private infinity pool is so beautiful and we were lucky enough to have a completely private pool that nobody could see into. However, from the end of our pool we could see directly into the villa and the pool below us. So I would definitely suggest that you ask for a villa where this isn't an issue (FYI room 8823 is private).

This resort is aimed at total relaxation and definitely delivers. The food is great and cocktails during happy hour by the pool is a must. I would recommend this place to everybody and truly hope I will be able to go back one day.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa where nobody can see into your room or pool.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to this accommodation, having booked the next door Katathani. Both are situated on the stunning Kata Noi beach, the Shore at the South end on a hilly slope covered with vegetation. The views are simply stunning. The villa is probably the best accommodation we have experienced with a private infinity pool, pool bed and outdoor lounge, huge bathroom with central bath and separate wet room and huge bed. There is plenty space and storage and nice little touches such as i pod dock. There are buggies which you can call all around the large resort or its a short walk down hill. The restaurant is good for breakfast and there is a lovely private sun terrace here with pool. The other restaurants in Katathani are all worth visiting. Wish we were there right now, if you are going soon - you are very fortunate. Cant say anything about value for money as we only paid for the place we booked but sure it will be expensive as it is stunning.

Room Tip: Higher rooms = best views

We stayed at this fantastic place for 3 nights and didn't want to leave. Really, we said goodbye to the room as we closed the door like we were leaving a close friend. The location, view, amenities and most of all, the staff were second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was first class.
We would definitely recommend staying at this resort, unless of course you don't want to wind out and relax, because that's what we found 'The Shore' seems to specialise in.
We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from 4 nights at the hotel. It was absolutely fabulous with great service, friendly staff (they even remember your preferences for drinks) and beautiful rooms. We stayed in a pool villa and the room and view was just sensational. Nothing was too much trouble and i just loved the little touches at night - banana cake etc.

Have not stayed at a better hotel.

Room Tip: its worth the extra to get a beach view.

We have stayed at some top class hotels in our time, but this one beats them all hands down. Their attention to detail is staggering, and the food and drinks are so cheap (£1.50 for a beer!). Our villa had a private pool and although it didn't face the sea, it did have glorious views over the palm tree covered mountains - magnificent. The villa itself was huge, with every possible amenity you could ever think of (pre-loaded ipod and mosquito repellant were two of the most surprising). I don't want to tell you of all the absolutely wonderful little touches they do to make your stay special, as they were such a lovely surprise each day. Don't worry about the villas being on the side of the mountain, they have 24hour golf-buggy service to ferry you up (and down if you want too). The location is fabulous, lots of restaurants/bars close by, and the beach is to die for - the water is like stepping into a warm bath, and the curve of the bay makes the sea very gentle here. It's the best holiday we've ever had!

To start with, the rooms here are exceptional. Well designed, not overly cluttered, and every bit as gorgeous as you'll see in the pictures. We were lucky having travelled during the monsoon and while other areas in Thailand were flooding to have experienced almost 3 full days of clear skies.

Food at the resort was great (although in no way comparable to the amazing stuff you'll get at Mom Tri's just 5 mins down the road by buggy) and affordable. Transport all throughout the area is easily available via buggy from the resort and from sister resort Katathani. The beach is small but not crowded.

Only blots on the stay I felt was that I'd specifically requested for a higher room but was given one on the lower levels, with a view obscured by a large tree, and at times service seemed forced rather than natural. Would go back again but would perhaps give some of the other highly rated resorts around a go first.

The Shore has a very good location with modern well-equipped villas overlooking the Kata Noi beach. But, the overall experience is not up to the standing and price of the resort: the staff is not really at the right level, the public beach is not clean, access from the resort passing over the pond of water exiting the local water treatment facility is not nice, the food is below average. Better go and eat at the small Thai eatery one one side of the beach or at the fantastic Mom Tri restaurant on the other side, part of thew Villa Royale resort. We took our two dinners there and wondered why we did not book this hotel instead. No hesitation next time around.

Katathani1, Manager at The Shore at Katathani, responded to this reviewResponded 11 November 2011

Thank you for your time in writing a review of your recent stay, which we have read with great interest. We do apologize that our services did not meet your expectations and we are doubling our efforts in bringing all of our superb staff up to par. Being a public beach, there are certain limits as to how much we are allowed to do. We do have a beach cleaning schedule in which the public beach is cleaned by our staff 3 times weekly during the dry season and 2 times daily during the monsoon season. The pond mentioned is merely accumulated rain water from the mountain surrounding Kata Noi and certainly not waste water. We are currently building a small wooden bridge in order to facilitate access to the beach. Thank you again for your support and patronage and our apologies for any inconveniences causes.
