“Absolutely superb!”
Reviewed 6 July 2012 via mobile

Tucked away at the far end of Kata Noi Beach is this gem of a resort. The rooms/villas are all separate with uninterrupted views to the sea. The room builds are fantastic with good attention to details. The private infinity pool that can be entered from the bed room takes some beating. Staff are friendly and attentive without being in your face.

The Lighthouse Bar and Restaurant has good food and fantastic staff who were very friendly. Delightful sipping a margareta on the ottomans at sunset!

Can't recommend enough.

Let me start by saying...What a difference 12 months makes!!! Ms Sabina D'Alessaro has made some tremendous changes to this wonderful property and it has made it all the more enjoyable. Ms Sabina and her staff deserve much praise for the improvements!!
In my last review on this property I had some concerns, all but one have been addressed and the improvements far outweigh the one issue I have. The One concern I still have has to do with The Resort and not The Shore. Staff in The Resort working at the Pineapple Bar still do not like serving guests relaxing around the Bhuri pool and its such a shame that Guests have to look after themselves. Fingers crossed this one concern will be rectified on our next visit.
The staff at The Shore are some of the best I have come across in my travels, nothing is too much trouble and there is always a smile, laugh and a hello waiting for you.
The rooms at The Shore are just magical, for that extra surprise, book a Sea View Pool villa, the sunsets are to die for from the room and how could one not want to lie in their own infinity pool as the sun sets, magical.
Breakfast is terrific, afternoon tea the best new addition and having dinner at The Harbor, WOW!!!! The food, service and attention all number 1. And why not start dinner with a Happy Hour drink, watching as the sun sets over the ocean.
The pools are glorious both at The Shore or down at The Resort.
We loved the staff who kept our room clean, everyday they would leave a new little surprise for us and we really appreciated their thoughtfulness.
The staff are never intrusive, they ask polite questions and then move on with a smile. BLISSSSSS...
Don't forget the cooking classes at Chom Talay, what a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, not only learning to cook Thai, but eating the food you cooked. One could not be hungry after this. Love the recipe booklet, Hat and apron all great touches.
If you want to do tours staff at either The Shore or The Resort are more than helpful and go out of their way to accommodate you, its a credit to them and management.
Also there are several wonderful resturants on the road outside the resort and going up into Kata if you want to do something different. The Pancake trolleys in Kata are finger licking good and a great way to end a wonderful day in Paradise.
Couple of tour ideas, The Big Buddha, Phuket Shooting Range, Elephant trekking, ox cart rides, snorkelling, parasailing. Shopping in patong don't forget Jung Ceylon department store and Robinsons for originals or Otop market, Karon Nightmarket for the touristy stuff.
Anyway the west cost is the most beautiful side for us and Kata Noi is number one place we love.
Definitely will be returning to The Shore as soon as we can, can't get enough of this heaven on earth. Thank you once again to Ms Sabina D'Alessaro and all your staff.

We stayed at the Shore at Katatani for 2 nights for our anniversary. The view from the seaview villa was magnificent especially at sunset. our breakfast in bed was fastastic and we were reluctant to leave the room. The staff are really great, really attentive and helpful. we will definitely come back to ashore....

Room Tip: Get a seaview villa with unobstructed view, you will love it.

This is the place to stay if you want complete and utter relaxation, time out from all the world....you arrive and are immediately embraced by exceptional service and complete privacy. The holiday is all about you and this is evident from day one. You can choose to do whatever you want, whenever you want.
Facililties are excellent, from your villa to restaurant/lounge bar, spa, gymnasium, library with DVD's, free Wi-Fi. The seaview villas are just out of this world with the most brilliant, mesmorising view. Privacy in your villas is completely respected. The bathroom is massive with bathtub (complete with rose petals), two shower heads for your particular choice, twin sinks/mirrors and separate toilet. The bed is extremely comfortable and faces the magnificent view. Storage is not a problem and is quite ample. For morning coffee lovers, there is an excellent coffee pod machine so that you can make a quick brew and escape to the lounge in your bathrobe on the outside deck to wake up.
Room staff were most efficient and spend a lot of time on the "finer details" ensuring a comfortable stay, e.g. extra towels, surprise romantic settings. The toiletries were high in quality and we never ran out of toiletries as they were constantly supplied as necessary. The room including the bathroom, deck, pool as well as linen were extremely clean and complete with beautiful flowers and designs made from the bathtowels.
As for the restaurant "Harbour" and the "Lighthouse" ......just fabulous. Breakfast has a selection of western and asian selections. The breakfast staff quickly identified us and had our tea/coffee preferences organised each day. You can sit at breakfast for as long as you like just relaxing on the water, reading etc. The a la carte menu is extensive and also includes authentic thai food. The staff at the restaurant are just amazing. They were so very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much. They are always very happy to assist and during our stay we could not find a better quality restuarant to visit. Why would you want to go anywhere else, when you can literally sit on the beachside enjoying the sunset with drinks and beautifully prepared meals? We think that the evening restaurant staff have a great team and manager which is working perfectly to ensure guests are given optimum service. On our last night, the staff created an amazing farewell gift for us by transforming a beachside setting into a beautiful private dining area, complete with a walkway of candles and lights. Our last night was even more magical and I actually cried when we departed.
I must make mention of the room service. The restaurant organised room service for us one night and everything was perfectly presented and hot. The staff really go out of their way to ensure that guests are given what they ask for, including additional food requests that are not on the menu.
The spa provides an extensive spa menu which guests should indulge in at least once. I visited the spa 3 times for different treatments and loved it. Spa amenities are of high quality and staff are respectful and deliver quality service.
The gymnasium is spotless and has everything one would need to exercise, treadmill, crosstrainer and free weights as well as pin loaded weight machines.
The library and DVD collection has great choice.
Buggy cars are provided as needed by guests if you prefer not to walk between your villa and other resort destinations.
Perfect holiday, so very very sad to leave.

We stayed at the Shore for 3 nights after staying at the sister resort the Katathani Beach resort. I had this as part of a deal and soooo glad that I booked this to celebrate my birthday. From reception where the staff are amazing and go over everything with you through to the room which is just stunning...the pictures on their website hardly do this place justice...you have to see it to believe it. We have stayed at some beautiful beach locations but this place tops them all. The rooms are all well designed and layed out and the decor is fresh and beautiful. We arrived to a beautiful bed of swans and flowers...anyone would have thought they were on their honeymoon (hehe not yet but we called it our pre honeymoon). The day we checked in it was my birthday and had a nice suprise of a birthday cake they did up upon request of my fiancee then we came back that night to find the bed with a birthday message and some cute elephants made of towels. Just amazing! Everytime we left our room we would come back to find it tidy again and everything refreshed...no this wasn't just after the room had been cleaned this would happen at least a few times a day. Each night we would come home to find a nice treat of some kind. Breakfast is included and optional to have either by the pool at the restaurant or in your room....we chose our room each time as it was stunning to have breakfast there everymorning and again we couldn't complain on the service or the breakfast. By the end of the 3 days there was no way we wanted to leave this little slice of heaven and they also gave us a late checkout without us asking, our flight wasn't until 9.30pm that night and we arrived to a letter one night to advise we didn't have to check out until 4pm and our transfer would be ready at 6.30pm ....perfect we could shower and enjoy that little bit of extra time in the pool. Can't wait to save and go back to this magnificent resort.

Room Tip: We had 8814 which had ocean views.
