The Shore at Katathani
Ranked #2 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2010

My husband and I have been to Phuket several times and we thought nothing could surprise us. But surprised, we were totally, by the Shore. The Sea colour was bright blue (it felt like we were in Cote D’Azure, say Nice….) with private sandy beach.

The best luxury yet Zen beach resort we have ever been to in our lives is probably even an understatement when it comes to describing the Shore. The room and facilities were world class while the little touches and attention to details made us felt like we were at home. Staffs were so friendly and professional but best of all, the unforgettable view of the sea from our veranda. The room had more than panoramic angle towards the sea, I think it was close to 270 degree sea view right from our bed, bath room and the usual suspect infinity edge pool. We’ve been to several 6 stars hotel in South of Thailand but none can be compared to this so far. Breakfast was delicate, hot and personal and the portion was more than enough to last you through the day before a lazy late afternoon lunch. We were very happy and impressed throughout our stay, the only bad thing I can think of is leaving for our home, I personally miss the bathtub, and the bath with a breath taking view (I think you can find some pictures here www.theshore.katathani.com).

We will definitely be back!

Reviewed 25 July 2010

We had our last 2 nights in Phuket here in mid July and I booked it via expedia with 65% off the high season price (still £195/night though!) as a special surprise for my wife. It was a gamble, as I knew from forum members that there was still some construction work going on and also I had only booked the garden villa not the £80 more expensive sea view villa.
We were greeted with drinks and flowers and told that we were beeing upgraded to a seaview villa - fantastic I thought! We were taken to the room and as we entered, my heart sank. It was directly opposite reception. It did have a slight sea view however it was totally overlooked by the next villa along and also anyone walking/driving up to the hotel had a view straight into the room - completely unromantic..... I was almost heartbroken as It was not what I wanted to surprise my wife for her 40th. I had a discrete word with the lady who was showing us round and asked if there was any chance we could be moved, even if it meant downgrading back to a garden villa. She told us to make ourselves at home and she would see what she could do.... 10 minutes later the doorbell rang; "would you please follow me to your new room" and we were taken 3 villas along to a wonderful villa with full view across Kata Noi beach. I went from dejection to elation within 10 minutes!
The villas are simply stunning. Huge bed decorated with flowers is if we were on honeymoon, fantastic bathroom and outside lounge area, sunken daybed in the plunge pool that got the sun all day and the sunset going down at the end of our own infinity pool as we sipped chilled Sauvignon Blanc from the fridge will forever be etched in our memories. We were literally speechless for the 1st hour we were there, not quite believing how amazing it was.
There is free WiFi in the rooms and breakfast can be either had in your room (ordered the night before) or we chose to take the short walk to the Katathani Resort where we had the buffet which was excellent. All the facilities of the Katathani are also available, but can't really comment as we didn't really leave our room for the 2 days other than to go for evening meal at Mom Tri's Kitchen just a 10 min stroll along the length of Kata Noi beach away.
I would feel rather light headed if I had to pay full price (£600/night) but for what we got it for it is the best place we have ever layed our heads - brilliant
