“Beautiful hotel......stunning view, stunning rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

We spent a week at The Shore and can honestly say, it was worth every penny. The rooms are to die for, so spacious and carefully thought out. The staff couldn't have been more helpful especially Sylvia who checked us in and was like a ray of sunshine. It has an air of prestige and you feel well looked after and cared for. The facilities are few but the great thing is that you have use of the very large sister hotel next door. To be honest, you dont need many facilities as it is a pleasure to spend so much time in your room. Treat yourself to the ocean view pool villa. Enjoy!!

Room Tip: We were in room 8834, pretty private, not too far up the hill and good to get some exercise.

My husband and I spent the weekend at the ocean view pool villa. It was simply spectacular, the view is how you see it in the photos. We could open the balcony doors and hear the sound of the ocean crashing on the shore. We slept really really well everynight. Not much to do in Phuket, we simply stayed in the resort. Went to Mom's Tri kitchen, which was simply spectacular ambience. The best food was the local Thai restaurant, very inexpensive and really good.

Loved this extremely romantic place, we will definitely come back.

Room Tip: Definitely stay in the ocean view room, all are very good, but i hear #8773 is the best if you want...

We were very impressed with this hotel. We were having our wedding at the Katathani which is sort of joined and decided to treat ourselves to the 6* section of resort. Check-in was easy, they sit you on the couch and give you a drink and cold towel etc but we've had that from 4 and 5 star hotels in thailand. The villa's are amazing, we were in the ocean view so the view was really amazing, especially with the lap pool outside. I could have moved into one I loved it so much. Not over the top like a house, still felt like it was a holiday resort room but lovely. The bed was extremely comfortable and you had choice of pillows which is great. The wardrobes and desk where all away so you didn't have mess in the room. The shower had great power and never ran out of water. I even used the bath one night and enjoyed a wine and relax. They have an ipod doc speaker which we used a lot especially when using the outside area (and we would have friends come regularly so gave it a good atmosphere). Mostly we loved the outside area, sunken lounge and deck with couches next to lap pool. They give you the most amazing breakfast on the deck in your room the day after you arrive (and they also gave us this the day after our wedding). The plunge pool was a good size, my only critism is on most days it was a little cold, i think it should have some heating. The first day when it was the hottest day it was warm, after that although the days were in high 20s, just wasn't hot enough to heat the pool. The staff were lovely, especialy Jimmy who is one of the drivers, if your high on the hill like we were we did take the buggy a fair bit, but also walked the hill a lot for exercise, but having over 60 wedding guests, we were up and down a lot, and sadly didn't get to spend as much time in villa as I would have liked. Some nights the buggy did take a while to arrive from down the hill and when I was alone I wasn't keen to walk up as it was a bit dark for my liking. The staff were usually very fast with any requests to the room not that we used it much, but on wedding day while getting ready they were bringing drinks up and ironing boards etc. They made our room all romantic with candles around the sunken deck and flowers etc the night before wedding then night of wedding when we got back they'd put things on the bed, little things that made me excited! The restaurant at the Shore is nice, it's modern type cuisine, fairly expenive with small meals, but thats what we expected and the food was delicious. The included buffet breakfast was good, and i'm gluten free and the chef made me bread, buns and muffins, way more food then i needed before wedding! I've had better buffets, it's not massive, but it's adequate and lovely food. We also enjoyed one night lying on the lounges near the restaurant and watching the sunset during cocktail hour. We didn't use the gym or wine bar so can't comment, sure fine. I had a manicure, it was fine, very tranquil but probably in future I would have gone across the road to a cheaper shop without all the frills. But the spa did look lovely and tranquil if your willing to spend the money. Anyway i highly recommend this place and just suggest not doing too many activities while there and enjoying the villa. As far as location, we picked this particularly to do with wedding not the accommodation. It's a short and cheap 25 min tuk tuk to patong for those who want a big night out, has a few restaurants that aren't part of resort for those who want a cheap feed and the beach is lovely and tranquil, and only 5 mins from Kata town for shopping etc and the Katathani itself has like 5 pools and lots of restaurants etc, so was perfect option for a wedding. Anyway we are glad we stayed at the Shore, we loved it.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a ocean view, you won't regret it!

I spent 10 days with my girlfriend in this hotel. We had the villa on the top of the mountain. To be honest it was always a very long way to get up but the hotel has enough buggies - so if you are just lazy (especially in the evening after dinner) the staff is happy to drive you to your villa.

Each villa had his own splash pool (approximately 6 by 2 meters) and a sun deck with an integrated table. The bathroom opens up to the terrace. The combination of being 30 to 40 meters above the sea and having that villa build "into" the mountain was a mind blowing fact.

The service is just amazing. We ate very often in our villa and especially breakfast on your own terrace with this amazing view was just making a perfect start into the day.

The hotel itself is by amount of guests not very big. I would say 40 to 50 villas but due to the fact that the area is so big it looks pretty empty. If you want to have people around you, crowd bars, ... you are in the wrong place but within 10 minutes you find many of these places.

I shouldn't forget the spa which is another great "feature" of this place. We used it very excessive. Thailand has many fantastic hotels but The Shore was even among those an exception. Thanks for a great holiday!

Room Tip: Take the villa on the top. It's like a paradise in the paradise!

I still can't believe how exceptional this place was, even the gardeners smile at you and wish you well.
The service was above and beyond what we paid. The room was immaculate, we didn't actually want to leave. In fact for the first 4 days we didn't go anywhere, which is exactly what we wanted for our honeymoon. The food on the resort was fantastic. The staff organized cabs to and from all of the restaurants that weren't part of the resort.
They also organized our day trip out to PhiPhi island. My wife and I were treated like part of the "Family," and felt they genuinely were happy to have us.
I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic this experience was for both of us.
We wanted a Honeymoon to remember for the rest of our lives, we got that plus so much more.
Thank you to all at the "The Shore!"

My husband and I stayed here in August for five nights and loved it! We stayed both in an ocean view villa and tropical forest villa, now both are beautiful. The villas are huge with great pools and views to die for. We thought all of the staff were friendly, especially Golf who went out of his way to ensure our breakfasts and dinners were perfect. The main pool is a very relaxing place to sit and watch out over the beautiful beach or to sit and watch some of the amazing sunsets during happy hour. We will come back again one day:)
