Also known as Hat Kata, this relatively secluded beach is perfect for those seeking a more relaxing location to holiday. With less shelving in the water than some of its neighbours, Kata proves a clean and safe haven for little ones, although a decent amount of waves allows for some surfing opportunities too. Longtail boats pull up here, allowing for exploration further afield and visitors can hire beach umbrellas and loungers, as well as paying for massages and pedicures while sunbathing. But stay in one of the fanciest seafront resorts and you’ll enjoy your own private amenities.Commanding the perfect position between the beautiful sandy beaches of Kata Noi and Kata Yai on the east coast of Phuket, Kata Rocks is the perfect place to use as a base for those who prefer the minimalistic approach to luxury. Guests are provided with plenty of privacy as the ocean-facing rooms and villas come complete with their own spa pools and small gardens to unwind in. Those who are feeling social are sure to love hanging out in the infinity pool and at the bar, while the modern spa offers an impressive selection of contemporary treatments.Check Availability and Prices* All the properties and products we feature are independently selected by our editors and contributors.
