“Excellent pool access room.”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I have never been to Kata beach when I was travelling to Phuket. On my recent visit, I split my stay into two beaches. 2 nights here in Kata and the rest was in Patong.

So, I would like to give a try by staying here. How to get to this hotel from the airport?

It cost me THB 900 one way per taxi. I did check all the taxi company on arrival and the price was the same as some reviewer on TA said it was vary. However, for those of you who are looking for cheaper option, you can book online prior to you arrival at this website: phukettaxi.com .It will cost you THB 790 oneway per taxi. Not that cheap I guess.

So, arrived at the hotel around 17:00. Quick respond by the concierge staffs. First impression of the hotel was beautiful thai architecture, open lobby but small reception desk. Greeted by the staffs along with welcome drinks. Staffs were very attentive. Explained everything about the hotel. Free wifi for 2 devices per room.

Check in done, very smooth and friendly welcomed. Proceed to our room. We booked pool access room. What a nice surprise!!! The room was beautifully decorated for honeymoon theme. Really appreciate that.

We tried the breakfast. It was ok. Nothing wow about it.
It was less than 10mins walking to the beach. However, Karon beach is nicer and cleaner compare to Kata but Kata beach is quieter.

On our departure to stay in Patong beach, we used the hotel taxi. It cost THB 400 one way per taxi. It is the same price actually for those of you who might be looking any taxi on the street.

Will I go back to stay at this hotel?
It's a big yes for the hotel but not for Kata beach.

A great and big, quiet and clean room ( Deluxe room) with nice and typical Thai decor, beautiful reception, friendly staff, nice swimmingpool. Breakfast was ok, but if you prefer not to eat a warm food with breakfast, the choise of meat for the bread was too poor.
The free use of beds on the private beach of the hotel was a good service, however you had to be in time to obtain one of the limited tickets.
We were satisfied about this hotel

We found Phuket such a busy island with so much things to do that we was only in our hotel to sleep. Luckily we manage to get a really good saving on our package. Overall the hotel was nice, Pool area was really nice and water really warm. Staff members where not really interactive but did serve with a smile on there face. I was very very disappointed with the breakfast as they were catering for more the Russians as they were serving beef stew, rice, fried potatoes and more of dinner stuff then breakfast food. After that we did not eat at all in the hotel again as we found better places to eat out and about and blooooody cheap to, example, two fried noodles, two grilled chicken and two drinks for £2.80!!!!! so we eat the street food all the time!!

Overall it was standard hotel but had a nice time, I would not say its a 4 and half star hotel, more 3 star then anything.

Room Tip: dont book taxi from the hotel as you will get it cheaper once you walk out! all the rooms are the s...

Had a lovely stay here late December. The grounds aren't massive - they mainly consist of the large pool that runs through the middle - but they are every bit as beautiful as they look. The food here was lovely and the staff very helpful. The rooms were very nice, especially the bathrooms with their rainforest showers! A short walk or free transfer to their own section of the beach with a bar hut where you can buy food and drink to your hearts content! Would definitely recommend a stay at a great hotel in Kata if you don't mind it not being directly on the beach.

Quality accomodation with friendly staff in an excellent location. It is a large hotel but built in Thai style, only 4 storeys high. We were in a deluxe pool view room which provided a third bed in a curtained alcove. The main bed was huge and comfortable and overlooked the pool as all the rooms do. The room was quite dark due to the veranda over the private balcony, however that kept the place cool when it was 40 degrees outside. The aircon was also efficient when we had it on. The accomodation blocks and public areas formed a rectangle, inside which was an amazing pool which wound its way all around the resort in between tropical vegitation and 3 bars. It was a peaceful oasis and you only have to walk out the front door of the hotel and you are in the middle of a lively area containing bars, eateries from great restaurants to street food, and of course the market stalls.
The buffet breakfast was fantastic, a huge choice of dishes which changed every day. Kata beach is a 5 minute walk away and is lovely, even if the free hotel sunbeds are taken there are pleanty of others available at THB 100 each for the day even when it is busy. Karon beach is also within walking distance. We had 14 nights there theres lots to do in the area and you are only a 20 minute taxi / tuktuk drive from most of which Phuket has to offer. We didnt use the gym and spa but they looked good. PS Turn left out of the hotel an walk 2 minutes and try the Lana Bar , it has some great live music, grab a bite to eat first along the traffic free road at the side of the bar lots of choice.

Room Tip: We were in a top floor (4) room and it was very quiet.

Stayed 5 nights at Kata Palm In february.
Good location , right In the center of Kata.
Abouth 5 minutes walk to very nice Kata beach.
Kata Palm has 30 free sunbeds at midle of the beach, and you get tickets In reception 8.30 in the morning.
It,s a very big hotel, with big Pool aerea.
We had deluxe room, 47 square meters,and a good size balcony.
Be aware of , you can hear everything from the bathroom, because of a kind of wall/window you can open , and it is NOT sound proof.
In the midle of Kata center, but very quiet.
Breakfast was very good, and never empty.
Taxi cost to airport is 1000 bath, operated by the hotel.

Good hotel with good location to beach, restaurants and shopping. Only a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel arranges shuttlebus transfer to and from the beach. Nice poolarea. The breakfast is okey with a good variety of choices. Though, I could live without the chinese background music that was on all the time during breakfast!! The rooms are okey, but with very thin walls so you could hear everything outside the room at night when people came home late, or walking in the room above.
