“Shut the front door - this place is AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

This resort has to be the most amazing resort I have every stayed in and I have stayed at many. As I entered the room for the 1st time my mouth dropped. That has never happened to me or my husband b4. The room, the service, the food, the view was out of this world. This was the last leg of a 3 week vacation and wow did we finish it in grand style. This place is so romantic and surreal. I cried when it was time to leave. If you think the pics r nice wait to see it in person. Wow

I've been fortunate to stay in some beautiful hotels around the world, but The Shore ranks amongst the top.

We had our wedding at the Katathani in Feb, and were blown away by the location, staff and overall event.

We stayed in rm 8852, which had an amazing infinity pool and stunning views over Kata Noi. The bathroom is immense, and allows for a relaxing bath whilst overlooking beautiful Kata Noi.

The infinity pool is stunning, albeit gets cold given so high and not much direct sun.

Staff are wonderful and whilst the price is obviously amongst the highest in Thailand, this resort is an amazing location.

My wife and I visited the Shore in late January (2014) for the first leg of our honeymoon, and the resort was the perfect spot to take in some luxury and relaxation. The Shore, being the adult-only portion of the larger Katathani resort was perfect for us. The rooms, or villas, are exceptional. One of the best we stayed in during our entire trip and will live on in our memories for years. Everything in the room was unique, plus the views from the private plunge pool - unbelievable. The staff were extremely friendly and took the time to help us organize great day trips (thanks Noah!).

The beach in front of the resort is probably the best in the area. Its at the end of a long string of bays, and is the smallest which translates into few people. We visited the Kata beach, the more popular of the two, and it just seemed too busy. Don't be surprised to pay a couple bucks for a chair on the beach - all beaches are public and its just a local business.

One tip - visit the Quicksilver Wake Park off of Kata Beach (20-30min walk from the Shore). We unfortunately only discovered this place on the last day, but it was so much fun. A beach-front bar with an amazing artificial surf machine that you can ride for less than $10/hr - or sit back and watch your friends and family while enjoying a Singha!

If you want a full Thailand experience, I'd suggest adding a few more days in Ao Nang (in Krabi), because that's where more of the famous limestone rock-islands can be seen. We went to Patong for a night and that just wasn't for us. Maybe when we were 21 and wanted to party our faces off, but now in our early 30s it was a bit much - and we didn't find any great restaurants. Stick to the Shore for food or anything they recommend :)

All-in-all, The Shore was fantastic and we have no negative things to say, other than we wish the pools were a bit warmer. Hope to get back there some day!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a pool, so its between whether you want an ocean view and less privacy, or a moun...

Where can I start about The Shore? This place surpassed all my expectations and it was truly the best place to spend our honeymoon. Our villa had been decorated beautifully for us upon arrival and was full of lovely little touches for us to enjoy. The bed was enormous and the bathroom was fantastic with a free standing deep bath and a spacious shower. Lovely toiletries were provided with an abundance of towels which were replaced twice a day if you wanted.

The villa had a decking area next to the pool which we spent a few evenings on; there is a mini bar which we used to store a few extra drinks and a Bose iPod dock was provided so we were able to have some private evenings when we fancied. The rooms in the villa are divided using folding doors which you can open up to make the entire villa open plan which we thought was great.

The villa had a Lavazza coffee machine and a selection of teas available. Little touches like this really impressed me and added to the whole luxury experience. The guest services/room service were on hand 24 hours a day and would send up buggies or ice buckets at any time we needed.

Breakfast was served in the Lighthouse restaurant and it was great. The staff were brilliant; anything you could ask for was arranged for you with a smile and the utmost politeness. I had a fantastic selection of coffees including Iced Lattes which were lovely! There was a wide selection on the buffet and a chef who would cook your eggs any way you wanted. There was also a daily menu which you could order from which had a range of Thai, Chinese and western foods to choose from (I had Thai Green Curry, Vegetable Samosas, Selection of Dim Sum and Beef Tenderloin on different days, much to my husband’s amusement!)

As a surprise my mum had booked for us to have a romantic dinner overlooking the beach one evening. This was done by the Lighthouse restaurant and it was gorgeous; the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The area was decorated with candles and flowers and we felt really special.

We had sunset drinks one night at the Shore which were lovely. They do a happy hour between 17:30-19:00 where drinks are 150THB (approx £3) and we had a really romantic moment watching the sun go down.

Staying at the Shore, we were able to use the main Katathani Hotel facilities as well as the Shore. We did not eat here at any point but we did spend a few evenings watching the sun set at the sea side bar which was lovely and we had a great service here also. We had a massage treatment at the Spa which was brilliant if a little expensive. I personally would say that the massage you can get on the beach/in town was as good and a fraction of the price. That said, the spa was beautifully presented and you are paying for the experience.

Our room was decorated a second time during our stay. Our terrace had candles and flowers all over it and our room looked beautiful. We really felt so touched by all the effort that the staff went to for us.

Getting around the Shore is easy, there are always buggies to help you get up the hills. The lads who drove the buggies were really friendly. We always gave them a small tip and it seemed to really mean a lot to them and meant we were able to get a buggy whenever we needed.

Overall: the Shore is fantastic. We met the Assistant manager Sven who took the time to speak to the guests at breakfast and we complimented him on his staff as for me, they are what really make this resort so special. They were polite and friendly and could not do enough for you. I really loved our honeymoon at the Shore and would recommend it most highly to others.

We just left the shore, and we are very sorry to leave. The views are amazing that goes without saying, it's a dream to sit in your own infinity pool and watch the sun set, but it's also an amazing hotel. I think this is mainly due to the staff they were all wonderful and couldn't do enough for you, they always had a friendly smile and very happy to help with anything. The villas themselves are wonderful with everything facility thought of and great attention to detail. Breakfast was divine and would cater to even the fussiest eaters needs, we ate at the restaurant a few times and it was truly delicious, I can defiantey recommend the massaman curry, it's the best I've ever had. The beach is very clean, and there are little beach bars and restaurants dotted along if you fancied a change of scenery, but I don't think you will, all in all a wonderful holiday and would definatley go back.

Nothing can prepare you for the impact of walking into the most fabulous bedroom imaginable. It simply is one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever been to. The ambience is sublime, the staff faultless and so eager to please and the whole experience was perfect. The villas and gardens were unique and our 9 day stay still wasn't long enough. Our memories will last for a very long time and one day we will return. We would recommend anyone looking for a luxury holiday in this part of the world to seriously consider going to The Shore.

The island is busy but being at the end of the road, the Shore is spared. Whilst it is a part of the larger Katathani hotel it feels separate and exclusive which is one of the things you pay for. Having said that it is not too posh and the staff are really welcoming and friendly. The rooms are more like small detached villas built into the hillside with great views down to the beach below. They are big, well maintained and have a wow factor. The management team go out of the way to make you feel special so all in all it's 5 stars from us!
