Katathani Beach Resort (4.5*): Phuket

Katathani Phuket Beach Resort is located on the Southwest coast of Phuket Island in secluded Kata Noi Bay, less than an hour from Phuket International Airport - and a world away from all care. The hotel rests along 850 meters of crystal clear waters and white sandy beach on the stunning Kata Noi Beach. Warm sands, the soft rhythm of lapping waves, and gently swaying coconut palms relax your senses—while six swimming pools, six restaurants, and a full-service spa delight them. Every interior was recently renovated in graceful contemporary Thai style, blending elegant design with the quiet sensuality of natural teakwood, sandstone, and silk to create a feeling of complete relaxation. Many rooms feature private balconies, first class amenities and a tantalizing Katathani Signature Scent that whisks you away into a world of serenity.

    As usual, Kensington exceeded our expectations and every detail was handled by your company. It makes traveling to a strange country so easy and we get to experience an in-depth visit that gives us a true look into the country. The people of Japan are very friendly and gracious. thanks.

  • Hans M. — July 15, 2016 — Asia

    From start to end of the program was excellent - flights, guides, drivers and hotel accommodations.Had never experienced from other Travel Companies. My my Family and I thank Kensington Tours personnel for a job well done.

  • Steven T. — June 15, 2016 — Asia

    We found Kensington of great assistance in helping us extend our recent trip to Japan with days on private tour to Nagasaki, Hiroshima and Miyajima. Astrid Di Paolo was our Kensington travel designer and was a delight to work with - very conscientious and attentive to every detail of our trip.

    This trip was unforgettable. I start medical school in July and wanted to do one last family trip before starting school (and no longer having summers). China and Tibet were unbelievable. The Holy Lake and Great Wall pictures alone were worth the money spent on the trip. My father loved the monasteries in Tibet as well. He is a history nerd and loved hearing the stories from 600 AD and witnessing the great stupas. Nepal was amazing as well, although I would have loved to have seen the sites before the earthquakes. All of our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and took the time to make sure we had enough water and were safe. Would recommend Kensington Tours to all of my friends and will definitely book again using them!

    Everything was great!

  • Loretta H. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    Very enjoyable trip. We had a private guide and driver. All very knowledgeable. Always met us at the airport and even waited for us when our flight was delayed. The price was well worth the money spent. Thank you Kensington Tours!

  • Marnie T. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    The local guides were very sweet, knowledgeable and accommodating to our itinerary desires.

  • Diana S. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    The local guides in Japan were all so pleasant and very knowledgeable of the areas we visited. They often shared personal stories which further enhanced our enjoyment of the tours.

  • Byron M. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    That was the single greatest experience of my life.

  • James G. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    We were very impressed by the quality of the tour. Everything worked as planned - our guides met us on time every time, the hotels were well selected and met our needs precisely, the itinerary was well chosen. We would like to call out the expertise and friendliness of our guides. They added immensely to the success of the trip. All of the guides were great but we want to especially express appreciation for the guides in Ho Chi Minh City and Angkor Wat. They helped make us feel like we were speaking with friends about the countries and places they lived in.
