“Very special place in Phuket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

We were there just last night for drinks. This is our second visit to this very special place.
The view, the ambiance and a feel of absolute luxury high above the sea.
I would recommend sunset drinks at Kata Rocks. From the pool bar, you can take in beautiful sunset views and watch the ever hanging clouds looking across the beautiful wet-edge pool.

So my review is of the resort restaurant as we where not lucky enough to stay here.
Me and my friend went there one morning to check it out and for breakfast and the view from the restaurant was amazing and very private compared to the hustle of Kata beach over the new year the time of our visit.We stayed for breakfast which was good and of the traditional English offerings not your budget type breakfast but you are paying a bit more for the position and feel of the place and we didnt mind.
While there we got talking to the manageress whom was so helpful just chatting about our trip to Thailand and such she invited us to come back for dinner that night which where thinking of doing and come early and use the pool facility's which are attached to the restaurant.
Then we got chatting about the menu and she made the offer of tweeking it and we ended up with her help and the chef whom she went and got of designing a personal set Thai menu for us for that evening 'AMAZING' i despite lots off traveling had never had a personal menu designed for me.
So we went back about 4pm had cocktails a swim in the pool and watched the sun set then enjoyed our personally designed menu listed below it was all so amazing we felt like rock stars.

Pomelo Salad
Wok Fried Prawns in Tamarind Sauce
Stir Fried Pak Meing with Oyster Sauce
Deep Fried Chicken with Pandan Leaves
The staff even printed out a copy of the menu for us to take away as a memento
Thanks Kata rocks restaurant and thank you the chef and wait staff and especially the manageress you know who you are you are a credit to your self and the resort .
Do your self a favor if staying in Kata or even on Phuket get along to to the Kata Rocks restaurant for a sunset dinner .

Dear Guesty69,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. The Kata Rocks team will be delighted to hear of your exceptional experience; especially those staff-members who made it happen for you!

A wonderful part of the Kata Rocks experience is the “personalized service”; whether guests are staying at the property, or coming in for a cuisine or spa experience. The service mind-set within the team is such that they receive enormous satisfaction in looking after guests, caring-for them and offering the most magical experiences!

Let us know next time you are coming back to Phuket; we hope to welcome you to stay at the resort on your next visit!

Best wishes
The Kata Rocks Team

In February of this year we were privileged to visit the new award winning apartment complex of Kata Rocks. Although not quite finished, this truly is an amazing and unique development. The property is stunning and contemporary with tasteful, modern furnishings throughout. All villas have their own infinity pool and sea view, so marvellous sunsets can be viewed each evening from either the comfort of your room, or at the club house and restaurant. All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the spa provides a truly relaxing and revitalising experience. We sampled several of the good restaurants nearby but also enjoyed dining in the Kata Rocks restaurant. One evening some friends hosted a BBQ in their villa. This superb meal prepared by the chef, Steve, proved to be one of the highlights of our holiday. If you're looking for a soothing serene escape in beautiful surroundings, then we would highly recommend Kata Rocks.

Kata Rocks is outstanding in Phuket, and probably in Thailand. It ticks all boxes, excellent location, great food & service, fantastic villas - all beautifully designed and fantasic views. The staff is genuinely nice. Privacy, but still a nice feeling of community if you wish at the club house. Fresh, clean and well equiped gym...
We spent around 2 wks with family and friends in 2 villas, and will be back again. Soon!

Room Tip: All villas have direct view of sea and sunset.

I have just returned from a months holiday at Kata Rocks and I cannot wait to go back. The views are amazing and the units are spectacular.

The staff are all very friendly and so helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

Kata is the best place in Phuket to stay - you want for nothing. The beach is beautiful if you can drag yourself away from your own private pool or the club house pool at Kata Rocks.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing. Choose one based on the number of people you have with you.

We stayed at Kata Rocks with group of family and friends for 2 weeks over the 2013 Christmas and 2014 New Year. The service, staff, scenic views, crisp design, and well thought out amenities all combine to make this resort one of the most stunning and relaxing resorts in South East Asia. Not far away from the KR are incredible beaches, good snorkeling, a quite beach, and abundant Thai eateries. The food at the resort itself is delicious, albeit the portions could be slightly bigger. We look forward to our next stay at Kata Rocks.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the Ocean

I was lucky to spent new years week at Kata Rocks along with my good friends. The place is just awesome, they have truly have everything you could think of - Infinite Luxury. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The architecture and design is just mind blowing. With it's isolated location in Kata you are able to find peace and quietness from the rest of the hassle on the island, but just as easily able to to get around to visit any of the other places and sights in Phuket - Especially with the help of KR golf buggies. The ultimate highlight of the trip was New Years eve, with boating and snorkeling around the island during the day and finishing up with an enormous feast and private firework show all arranged by the professional staff of KR. Looking forward to my next trip back.
