My booking was made through agoda.com which offered me a decent rates. I paid only 1000THB per night for standard room and got up grade to Superior Room ( BF excluded).
The resort is on the small hill on quite heart of Kata beach. Close to beach ( 5 minutes walk), and a block to shopping, eatery ect. The room is nice with private balcony over view the beautiful garden landscape and swimming pool. The room facilities are besic but adequate.
Just one disappointed point, we booked a double bed room but we got 2 single bed which were merged together. It didn't really comfy the next day we were moved to the new room which was fine and with a double bed room.
The hotel staffs are polite as we noticed. Asked for changing the beach towels , a House keeping clark didn't understand what we requested ( in eng) so we rang reception to ask for this. English should be trained for them , particulary for the front section staff.
There are 2 pools and 1 Day spa. Massage was very good at the spa and moderate price only 200 THB per hr for thai massage.
By the way, Kata beach is a hidden gem! peaceful beach , the right place for holidays.
Overall, It is value for penny to stay here at serene Resort. I won't hesitate to come back again for my next trip to Thailand.
Unique Quality: The outstanding characteristics of this accomodation is the good room rates and the beauty of hotel landscapes. The room rates are unbeatable! You can get a good room ( but not fancy) on the downtown of Kata beach with breakfast at a unbelievable price. Having seen the pic from hotel website, I think the resort is beautiful than it has been advertised. All rooms facing the pool. there are many orchids and other tropical plant. Everywhere is 'green'. Guest rooms are good designed ,wich all re facing the pool and lush tropical garden landscape.
Directions: Very easy to get to this resort, after arriving Kata beach you will see the BIG elephant sculptures in the corner of the entrace of Kata beach resort, then turn left at the intersection ahead, the Serene Resort is on the little hill.
I had a blissful three days at Serene Resort in April 2004. The resort is located in Kata, at the southern end of the island. The facilities are fine, with two swimming pools and buffet breakfast each morning. The rooms are spacious and have balconies.
Unique Quality: There are two pools here and the beach is only a two or three minute gentle stroll away. The southern end of Kata Beach has restaurants and shops. There's a foreign exchange office across the road. "Tuk-tuk" taxis to Patong cost 200Baht.
Directions: Kata beach (southern end)
I know there is Karon beach resort + Kata beach resort, and they are right on the beach (if I am right?). But are there any other hotels in Kata or Karon that are right on the beach?
I would like to have very easy access to the beach from the hotel :)
So I could go from the hotel wearing only swimwear...
Or are the Karon beach resort + Kata beach resort the only beach side hotels?
Here you go, this might help you:
You'll notice that Serene Resort, Kata Spa and Aspasia are on the beach...I still stick to Kata beach resort.
For Karon: http://www.phuket-maps.com/frameme.php?page=karon.htm
I hope this helps somewhat.
Yes, both resorts are on the beach. The other ones directly on the beach is Boathouse in Kata and Marina Cottage in Karon Beach. However, the 2 resorts you selected have the best locations.
