Katathani Phuket Beach Resort
A wonderful vacation at Katathani Phuket Beach Resort
Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is a luxurious 5-star beachfront resort. This award-winning hotel is strategically located on the entire Kata Noi beach. Kata Noi beach is certainly one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket. Despite its golden location, right in front of Kata Noi Beach, Katathani Phuket Beach is ideal for families and international travelers who want to enjoy from the busy life.
The immense resort has 2 wings: Katathani Wing and Kataburi Wing with a total of over 500 rooms with 5 room types to choose from. The luxurious Katathani Wing offers beachfront suites with breathtaking views towards the ocean. While Kataburi Wing offers rooms without sea view but certainly cheaper rooms and a wonderful pool. The luxurious resort has 6 restaurants, 6 swimming pools, 6 bars and also has a high level Spa. In addition, Katathani Phuket Beach also has a fitness center and kids club, outlets and of course a beachfront Beach Club.
The well-kept garden shaded by tall coconut trees that peppering the front of Katathani Phuket Beach is surprisingly vast. In fact, it stretches along the entire Kata Noi beach. In addition, the hotel has various direct access points to the incredible velvety beach.
A highlight is the lifts and ramps for disabled users throughout the hotel area to make easy access. The resort is well-designed with careful attention to detail, making it one of the best hotels in Phuket. For more detail, Katathani Phuket beach is a SHA Plus certified hotel.
As mentioned above, Katathani Phuket Beach resort overlooks the stunning Kata Noi Beach. The sea view is surprisingly breathtaking especially from the suites. The hotel’s location is certainly what strikes first. So it has a great advantage inherent to the non-beachfront hotels.
Being in a great location in Phuket, the hotel has many interesting points to visit. In a few minutes you can reach the popular Kata Beach and the peaceful Karon Beach heading north. While the famous Patong beach is 12 kilometers from the hotel. Chalong Pier, the majestic Chalong Temple and Big Buddha Phuket are just over 10 minutes away by car.
A couple of kilometers south is the famous Karon Viewpoint. The view towards the beaches of Kata Noi, Kata and Karon is surprisingly breathtaking. About 10 kilometers south you will find 2 wonderful beaches: Nai Harn Beach and Ya Nui Beach. 2 tropical beaches with soft sand and crystal clear water that is the envy of many. Shortly after there are 2 beautiful viewpoints. The well-known Windmill Viewpoint and the most famous viewpoint in Phuket, Laem Promthep Viewpoint. Nothing is far from Katathani Phuket Beach resort!
Katathani Phuket Beach has 5 room types to choose from. I stayed in the Thani Wing Junior Suite facing the sea. The Suite with balcony has a modern Thai style and is well-furnished. From the balcony equipped with 2 chairs and a small table, it offers a breathtaking view towards the ocean. In addition, to the large and comfortable bed, the TV with many channels and the fast WI-FI, there are also many plugs with USB plugs. It might seem trivial but for travelers who have electronic devices the USB plugs in the rooms are very useful.
Other highlights are the desk station, comfortable sofà and the luggage space. The list of the amenities is impressive. There really is everything! To mention a few; there is a safety box, minibar, bathrobe, slippers, iron and umbrella. The bathroom is spacious and well-lit. In addition, there is also a comfortable bathtub. The Junior Suite is large and comfortable, so two people can spend a holiday without feeling cramped.

There are cereals and croissants, eggs and bacon, and there is also a side of the restaurant dedicated to typical Thai dishes. In addition, there is a large selection of fresh tropical fruit. There is a coffee station with 2 espresso machines. A good espresso in the early morning is what it takes to awaken the body from a restful night.
La Scala is Katathan Phuket Beach resort’s fine Italian restaurant. The well-known restaurant is located right next to the Chom Talay but on the upper floor. It has a very welcoming and well-lit entrance. In addition, the alfresco dining room is well-furnished and very inviting. The menu is large and well-illustrated. In addition, it has an extensive wine list to suit the needs of customers.
La Scala restaurant serves mainly Italian fine cuisine. The starters, homemade pasta and the excellent meat and fish dishes are absolutely excellent. We treated ourselves to 2 appetizers. Porcini, chanterelle and truffle cream soup. A very delicate taste and absolutely good flavor. Sea scallops complimented with truffle sauce and truffle oil. A well-presented excellent appetizer.
As a main course, we indulged in a grilled beef Angus tenderloin. Served with black pepper sauce and seasonal vegetables. Very tender and absolutely tasty. Highly recommended for Angus tenderloin lovers. Then a mixed grilled fish dish. Served with king prawns, scallops, sea bass fillet and squid. A really excellent dish and very well-cooked. A must try as both dishes were excellent.
Then, I unexpectedly received a chocolate cake for my birthday. The cake was prepared by the La Scala team and it was truly delicious. I had a fantastic experience celebrating my special day in one of the best Italian fine dining restaurants in Phuket.
I also had the opportunity to meet the Italian Chef Davide Spighi. Davide directs the kitchen of La Scala and the well-known Harbor restaurant at The Shore at Katathani. Davide is an Italian chef well-known in Phuket for his high skill in preparing fine Italian delicacies. With his team, he cooks with passion and profession preparing excellent Italian fine dishes. However, a chef always has something new to learn and new horizons to discover!
Chanadda Royal Thai Cuisine
Katathani Phuket Beach also has a renowned Thai restaurant. Chanadda Royal Thai Cuisine restaurant located below the La Scala restaurant, serves authentic Thai cuisine. The dining room is cozy and well-furnished in Thai style. It also has a choice of indoor and outdoor dining options with garden views. The menu is simple but well-illustrated with images and description.
I indulged in 2 Thai dishes. The Fried shrimp wrapped in an egg lattice and the well-known Fried chicken with cashew nuts. Both dishes are excellent and well-presented. I also tried the traditional Asian dessert, mango sticky rice and coconut milk. An excellent dessert with a delicate flavor. A must-try. The team of the restaurant are very friendly and helpful. In addition, it is well-formed and professional because at each course they described the dish very well. A true class service!
The Fisherman’s Wharf restaurant is located in front of the sea, overlooks the beautiful Kata Noi beach. Open all day, the restaurant serves mainly seafood cuisine. In addition, there are also appetizers, meat dishes, burgers and salads, and some popular Thai dishes of course.
You can also indulge in the new Shabu Hot Pot menu at the garden. It is 2 sets mixed with meat and fish. The Sea Set 999 Baht net and The Ocean Set 1,999 Baht net. The sets are both similar but The Ocean Set also includes Phuket lobster. Try it, you will surely have a good experience to tell. Please note: reservations are recommended 4 hours in advance.

Duo its vastness, Katathani Phuket Beach of course has a Beach Club with a pool and mini slide. It also has loungers and umbrellas for guests. Surrounded in a vast garden, the Beach Club is located in a secluded area facing the sea, but not close to the Suites. In fact, it is about 100 meters away walking. It has been cleverly designed and built in order to keep the area silent for the guests of the suites during the evening dinners with live music.
The Beach Club bar serves excellent cocktails, smoothies, local beers, and a selection of teas and coffees. Choose your sea view table shaded by swaying coconut palm trees while enjoying a refreshing drink. In addition, Happy Hour starts from 5.30 pm until 7 pm.
