Kata Palm Resort & Spa
Ranked #23 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed 17 June 2013

On walking in you can't help but be amazed at the appearance, and the room we stayed in was amazing, with an outdoors jacuzzi bath. But there was something missing, the breakfast was nice but didn't excite, the pool was the best I have swam in, but the atmosphere and service around it was lacking. I would say that it is really a 4 star in aspects but only a 3 star for service, which I think is very important. But it does have everything in place with a little work to become a great hotel.

Honestly, this was just a beautiful resort to end our trip in thailand. Our room was spacious, clean and just looked wonderful. Our balcony looked out onto the pool and gardens. The staff were friendly as accommodating. The buffet breakfast was the best we had in Thailand. The dining area was open and was surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers. It was also a 2 minute walk to the gorgeous because. A 5 minute walk down the road takes you to a little lane full of restaurants. Not only was the resort amazing but Kata beach is such a lovely part of Phuket.

We stayed in this hotel for 8 nights and it was a great stay. We had the deluxe room which was big and spacious. Aircon was amazing, room was always cool when we go back to the room. The only thing we didn't like is the bed which is quite hard..but that's a personal opinion..
The hotel is a few minutes to the beach which isn't too bad. There's a free shuttle to the beach, but only at certain times.
Breakfast was good, had several selections and was available really early (6.30am) which worked out well for us as we left at 7.30am.
The pool was great, our toddler enjoyed it very much.
There's lots of restaurants and shops around the hotel so we were spoilt with choices..the friday buffet the hotel does was great.
Overall enjoyed our stay.

We were surprised by the warmth welcome from the front desk staff who come to us and assist us from checking in, instead of queuing at the front desk. However, they need to improve on items in the room. First, can't pour water from the electric kettle (somehow the pump doesn't work). Second, toiletry spray doesn't work again (though it smell quite nice, but we can't try). Third, toilet floor was all wet after shower and it looks like water is leaking from sink? bath tube? Fourth, there is a strange smell on beach towel. Anyway, the resort environment is nice. It could be we are so unlucky checking in that room with all these faulty items.

We have stayed at this resort 3 times before. It is very clean, lovely rooms, great breakfast and 2 pools for relaxing. Close to good restaurants and the main restaurant out the front is very good and reasonable prices. % minutes walk to the beach with the hotel offering free beach chairs, but you need to be early for one or wait till the afternoon and ask for one then. Unfortunately the man who looks after this area does not keep it clean. Only let down.

Room Tip: I always choose a room on the top floor so I do not have to hear people dragging the furniture aroun...

Just spent 3 nights at the Kata Palm and I can't think of anything I would fault. OK the rooms are a bit dark and the balconies don't seem to get any sun but the grounds are amazing. I did think it a bit odd that the beautiful curtain-hung sofa was covered in waterproof fabric... functional I know but a sarong over the top wouldn't cost the hotel a lot of money....
Service was great and I loved the music playing as I sat poolside (or sat at one of the 2 swim-up bars)
The pool-access rooms look cool, but not necessarily worth the extra money...
I didn't have lunch or dinner here but the breakfast buffet meets all tastes and the other restaurants looked busy for lunch and dinner.
All in all a great choice.

We stayed for a week here and were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the staff, the spacious rooms and the incredible gardens and pools. The food we ate was lovely. The room was a bit musty but I think that was to do with the air conditioner. We stayed in a balcony room overlooking the pool and couldn't believe how spacious it was and comfortable. It was clean, the service was prompt. The recommendations made by the front desk were extraordinarily helpful. The location was central but it was also set back far enough to ensure quietness. Thanks for making a good holiday great!
