Rooms are clean and very modern. True comfort with a living room, balcony, and separate bedroom. It has a straight walk of about 5 minutes to the beach and surrounding restaurant. I highly recommend the breakfast as the staff is really attentionate and the food is really good. Actually every staff in the hotel is very nice and looking to make you comfortable. It was really a wonderful stay!

We recently stayed at the Grand Kata VIP, a fairly new hotel, having booked the private pool access suite. The hotel is a leisurely 15-minute walk to the beach and a short walk to a number of restaurants. For nightlife there are quite a few bars within a ten-minute walk. The Kata is a big hotel with 168 rooms. During our stay only 6 rooms were occupied, sadly this area has been very slow to recover after the Covid shutdown. Our room was outstanding, almost 5-star quality and having our own private plunge/spa pool just outside our door was brilliant. Total privacy made our stay even more special. The only downside was breakfast. Understandably because of such a low room occupation rate they are not going to put on a large breakfast buffet so instead offer a la carte. Only problem was there was no variety and no Thai options, every morning was the same. After a couple of mornings it became monotonous and we eventually began to skip their breakfast and eat outside the hotel. Aside from breakfast everything else was perfect and the current room rates they have on offer is a absolute bargain for the quality of hotel. Can highly recommend the Grand Kata VIP.

Dear Camjar! Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is important for us to know where we can improve! Thank you for appreciating our work, for appreciating the location and privacy of the accommodation. Unfortunately, you are right that we are slowly recovering from Covid. We will definitely make breakfast more varied, until the usual breakfast buffet returns. We hope to see you soon in Phuket!

Beautiful apartment at a very good price. Room was comfortable with a king bed in a separate bedroom. Large balcony, and all construction around the hotel was on hold, so it was quiet as well. Two pools. The breakfast was good with both hot and cold selections. Hotel and rooms very clean and modern. Short walk to the beach and there were numerous restaurants, shops, convenience stores and markets nearby. Very good location, The staff at the Grand Kata were amazing, they were so helpful, friendly, kind, and accommodating, We had some issues (not related to the hotel) and they did everything possible to assist. Everyone from the front desk to the pool guy to the breakfast staff were fantastic, can’t say enough about the customer service they provided. Big thank you to them all, you made our stay so enjoyable.

Had issues with check-in where I was put in another room and not the one requested. The room had twin beds rather than a double. When mentioning this to the staff they insisted it was the room I looked at the day before. It wasn’t. They then accused me of lying and said would check the CCTV. Funnily enough after checking CCTV (how ridiculous) they made a mistake but offered no apology other than I could swap rooms. To make matters worse the keycard would not work and I was told to wait for maintenance whilst they changed a battery in the door. There no utensils other than a few plates and knifes and forks. No cooking tools. The 5th floor pool had rubbish overflowing from the bin 3 days in the row. It was not emptied and it did not feel anyone would take responsibility for the cleanliness of the hotel. The breakfast selection was poor with little choice. Although there is an “egg station” where they will cook eggs to your liking. I only ate in the hotel twice and ate elsewhere afterwards. The food really wasn’t great. I tried canceling my stay after one night but the hotel would not offer a refund. Some staff training is required. There’s a lot nicer hotels in the area for less money. I would not recommend staying here. The hotel could easily make some changes to actually offer a “VIP” experience.

Staff would not let me leave my suitcase with them for a couple of hours until my next booking. Not my kind of place Other than that the place looked clean, and it is close to the beach. No view, and almost empty during covid.

Turned up late afternoon, negotiated a great deal in a new luxury apartment. Room was very modern and clean . The front desk staff were very polite and friendly and the pool and bar boys were fantastic and joined in playing bar games with us . The pool needed a little TLC which was dealt with . Breakfast was just ok with little Thia food available. The 2 evening meals we ate were lovely , clean new hotel near everything, fantastic beach 5 minute walk !!😎

I really like my stay at this property! The room was pretty big, like an apartment with living room, separated bedroom and bathroom. Very nice furnished and comfortable. It was cleaned every dayand the towels were changed on a daily basis as well. Breakfast was very good. I liked the rooftop pool area. Also liked the location- very close to Kata and Karon beach. The hotel provides pool and beach towels. So, you don’t have to be worried about the towels if you want to go to the beach and don’t need to bring yours. Construction site- yes, there is a construction site just next to the property. My room was facing it, but I had no complains about that. The works start around 8 or 9 in the morning and finish around 6 in the evening. I had no problems with the noise, since I was usually out the room in that period.
