Once more nothing to complain.

From From Australia, Period 15 - 25 October 2009
The rooms were more than adequate with no wasted space yet allowing for easy movement throughout the room by two people. The amenities such as bar fridges, cable television, ablutions and sitting facilities were more than adequate for the two of us.
We were able to view the complex, restaurants, pools, bars and the sea from the balcony.
The restaurants ranged from A La Carte to buffet.
Breakfast was held in the Cinnamon Bar where surely every appetite could be met with variety and a number of breakfasts that were changed on a daily basis. Food choices for breakfast ranged from a choice of cereals, pastries, breads, pancakes and waffles; fruit by choice and pre-cut fruit salad with a number of yoghurt choices; vegetarian plates for hot food and a cold salad bar; eggs came in anyway that you required along with choices of hot food to go with them. A wide variety of juices and /or milk and water were offered. Coffee and tea appeared unlimited.
The main meal was buffet style based on the theme of the day. The choices like the Cinnamon Bar were varied, matched the theme of the day and were of great value. To experience the choices of Asian food and particularly Thai food was very pleasing.
The family unit was looked after even down to the child minding services on the premises and the pools were suitable for everyone but the teenagers had to show restraint. The beach was probably a 50 metre walk across the road.
If we needed to go from the hotel you only had to ask reception and all things were ready in a prompt and professional way.
Shopping was available close at hand - shops in the street, hotel shops such as Jim Thompson and a market in the grounds of the hotel a number of times a week.
Would we come back to Katathani? Yes just for peace and quiet, the people, the smiles and the service given.

From Australia, Period 17-29 August 2009"Thank you
To the Katathani Phuket Beach resort and all of it’s staff
I am writing this poem on our behalf
With these kind words I would like to say
What a magnificent time we had during our stay
You the staff, were so friendly and kind
Your lovely smiles were and will be, always on our minds
The resort itself was a true delight
It wowed us over as soon as we set our eyes on this gorgeous sight
The breakfast selection made it hard to decide.
Although we did manage to put on several kilos
Myself and my tummy
And Maria on her thighs
“Siriporn” cleaned our room so fresh and bright
And on the foot of the bed each day she left a beautiful sight
Towels arranged in the form of animals and birds
With flowers sprinkled around made this a spectacular sight to observe
We will endeavor to return next year to stay
And beside the palm lined pool in the sun we will once again lay."

"Thank you for the e-mail regarding our stay at katathani, it was a real pleasure to stay there and easy to understand why it has won awards, we found all the staff first class and welcoming and I will certainly stay there again, I would like to say a special thanks to Ketsarin, Auayporn and Malinee who worked in the lobby lounge and pineapple bar as they were all superb and made our stay extra special but with a special mention to Ketsarin who always made the time there memorable with her great attitude and personality, thank you all again for a great holiday"
Mr. Allan / Mrs. Donna & Miss Emma FindlayFrom Australia, Period 01-10 September 2008
"To all our wonderful new friends, at Katathani,
Thank you all ever so much, for making this the most memorable, wonderful holiday. from our wonderful service , prior to the trip, to the arrival, upon which we received a lovely drink and beautiful floral arrangement. Followed by a gorgeous suite room 1202.
We had a beautiful lady, Onphen, whom attended to our beautiful room daily. Often leaving a lovely surprise, made from hand towels and face washers, creating beautiful animals, such as elephants, swans and baby birds, sitting in nests. Arranged so sweetly with orchids and foliage. My daughter Emma was delighted, and very sad to leave them, and Phuket!
The fabulous resort offered us more than we could have imagined. Fabulous dining, wonderful bars, and the swimming areas, were just beautiful.
The wonderful, girls that offered Thai massage, pedicures, manicures, they were all incredible. Very professional, and courteous. And best of all, they really massage well. I was fortunate enough to have many lovely treatments during our stay, whilst lying under a palm tree, listening to the waves from the beach. Relaxing.
We were not, at all disappointed, in fact, utterly impressed, that we found Katathani to be beautiful on the website, but, perhaps, more likely, breathtaking, in real life . It is now, our very special holiday resort, and we will be back, hopefully, very soon.
Til we meet again
Allan, Donna & Emma Findlay"
Mr. Graeme Hughes & Mrs. Heather CornishFrom Australia, Period 22-28 August 2008
To say that Heather and I had an enjoyable and memorable holiday is an understatement. You should feel very proud of the quality and friendliness of all your staff. We were made to feel very special throughout the time of our stay and it is very difficult to single out any particular member of staff. Each and every staff member excelled in their duties and we could not find fault with anyone.
The resort itself was superb and I can assure you, we will be coming back to Katathani in the future. We have no hesitation in recommending the resort to our friends and colleagues and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Again, thank you for an unforgettable time.

We would like to thank you for giving us another very happy and enjoyable holiday. We are also very proud to have the 'In House Sport' shirts!
The location and facilities of the Katathani are superb but it is the friendliness and kindness of you all that makes it so special for us. For that we are very grateful.
It really is our 'special home' and we think about you all very often."

Dear all at the Katathani,
Thank you so much for making our 20th anniversary and holiday with you once again such a pleasant stay.
Your renovations to your Bhurri Wing were lovely and your loving welcome of elephants and flowers on our bed both upon our arrival and departure were beautiful.
The breakfasts have even improved when we thought there was no room for improvement!
I must mention our massage lady Sutjai (number 82) for great thai massages and warm heart. She went out of her way to help us .... even with our shopping. Please send our best wishes to her from our family.
Your hotel deserves many rewards and the best rewards will be your repeat business from us and other guests.
Many thanks once again and we cant wait until we will be in Phuket with you again.
Mr. Keijo Ekholm, Ms. Leena Auvinen & AdaFrom Finland, Period 16 – 30 March 2008
It is now 25 years since I and my cohabitant started to travel the world. We discovered Katathani first time in year 2008. Our reasons to choose hotel are: must have an exclusive location, excellent beach and excellent restaurants and good service with friendly and professional staff. In Katathani our list of demand came true.
Spacious and well appointed rooms, kept superbly clean ( thank’s for Mrs. Preeyakamon ) compliment this resort. The food is of the highest quality and reasonably priced.
There are enough activities on or around the resort to keep the most energetic occupied. Children are also well catered for. The most overwhelming thing about Katathani is the staff.
Leena’s illness for 6 days was the only sad think during our holiday, but rest of it was marvelous.
Best greetings and see you again
Mr. Keijo Ekholm
Ms. Leena Auvinen & Ada
