May be we expected a little too much from our third trip to Phuket. Part of the resort was under renovation and realized that our room also needed an upgrade as well. When we first had our glimpse of Katathani 5 years ago seemed lot more luxurious than when we returned this year to stay for 5 days. Breakfast was mediocre and need more staff by the buffet. The dinner buffet was part of our package, but how disappointing. I can't help to think that Katathani may need a new owner for I keep getting the impression that staff didn't seem to care too much about accomodation. They seemed to have"tried" to be friendly, but I was feeling it. If you know what I mean. The pool were divided for "adults only" and kids friendly, and our kids had good time. The beach was only few steps away, and although the waves were high (considering it is a Monsoon season), we had a wonderful time riding them.
The hotel needs a whole new makeover inside and out, if they want to stay as a luxury resort.More
