Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at the Kata Bai D Hotel at the beginning of Feb 2020.

The property is excellent. The room was really clean, comfortable and well looked after. My room had a clothes air dryer, which combined with the balcony was very handy and the AC, shower and decor were great. I really appreicated the 24 hour coffee station and fresh bread, toaster, jam etc.

The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk away from the beach with lots of nice restaurants along the way. There is a very good night street food market near the beach, so your food choices are tasty and varied at around 100 Baht a dish.

Sam and Kee the owners and hosts were fabulous, such kind, caring and genuine people.
I particularly enjoyed my conversations about life and spirituality with them. They are really special.

Had a great time here and plan see Sam and Kee at the Kata Bai D Hotel again.

We came back the second time to stay at Sam’s place as we loved it last year. We had 4 beautiful days here which is right next to the beautiful kata beach. Sam , with a smiling face is always there to help you . for any needs and recommendations. Food is always available in the reception for free and you can eat and drink in a common area which is nicely decorated with love.Our room was in the second floor which was clean and quiet with a nice small balcony. They cleaned our room every day and every thing here was very comfortable. Sam also arranged us a scooter for roaming around the area which was a very good idea to see almost the whole island . What you get is far beyond what you pay. I recommend this place for any one who comes to Phuket.
Will come back !
Thank you Sam

Why do I come back to Kata Bai D year after year? Simple - I feel like coming home, welcomed by Sam, Kee, Dang and Meaow. The rooms while appearing simple provide everything I need, good bed and quiet AC, kept well maintained and clean. I love to talk with the team as time permits, always interesting and fun. See you all soon !!

I’m not sure why this place is 5 stars.. it was very adequate but not a 5 star hotel. Very clean and friendly staff. Breakfast was toast and instant coffee.. basically all you have is your room, there’s somewhat of a common area in the front but other than that it wasn’t anything special. It’s a close walk to the beach and lots of restaurants near by as well. I wouldn’t stay here again though.

Just stayed 3 nights and was extremely satisfied with this little B&B. Amenities wise it has all the things you need: a big bed, warm shower, strong air con and 2 free bottles of water every day.

This isn't why I have given a 5 star rating. The reason is Sam. He is hospitable, approachable and just down and out terrific. He gave us all the insights into the area with tips on things to do and places to eat. Which of course is great, but what I loved about Sam was having conversations with him about Thailand and its politics etc.. He is a great representative of the friendly and hard working thai people.

Stay here if you'd rather give your hard earned to a local than some rich hotel chain.

This hotel is a small family run guest house that provides all the essentials necessary for a pleasant stay. It was clean, reliable hot water (not always a guarantee in the region), comfortable beds, fast wifi access, and an incredibly helpful and friendly staff. Because the hotel is family owned, the owner (Sam) and his wife were on site every day, and really go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable - including acting as a friendly translator on more than one occasion. Should not be confused with a luxury hotel or resort - however, we actually stayed at an alternate location for a few nights in the same stay and were so unimpressed with the service that we decided to leave early and come back to Kata Bai D.

I would happily and emphatically recommend Kata Bai D if you are looking for a nice, clean, and relatively inexpensive way to experience the Kata beach area of Phuket.

We stayed here for 4 nights as our first stop in Kata. Place looked nice and cute from the outside - our cab had difficulty finding it. The owners (a man and his wife presumably?) ability to speak English is moderate to fair, and are super super nice and sweet. We stayed over Christmas and they gave out cute little sachel bags for their guests as a Christmas gift - so cute! We stayed in room 25 which sadly was the closest one to the lobby - we could definitely hear people coming and going and talking in the lobby, but it was fine, I was also jet lagged and tired at 7 pm so I can't expect people to be quiet at that time. Presumably the other rooms wouldn't have this issue. We checked in late - that's prob why we got that room. The room was so cute though! Like super cute! My husband was kind of leary as I had made this booking and he likes things to be a certain way - but he totally loved it too. It had a cute little balcony, a drying rack, safe, fridge with complementary waters daily, cute little bathroom, honestly it was adorable. Two of the potlights directly over the bed didn't work, but that's ok I'm sure they will fix that. The other lights were fine, but reading was just a bit dim due to them not working - not a big deal. We never ate the complimentary breakfast spread, but I had some bananas here and there. At all hours of the day they offer instant coffee, tea, cookies, bread for toasting with a jam assortment, and bananas. We like a bit of a heartier breakfast with some protein so we always went out. The owner referred us next door to a little mom and pop thai eatery - it was delish and reasonably priced. Shower was always hot, bed was a little squishy for my taste, but we both slept just fine. It was a king bed also, I should add - bonus. They give you complimentary beach towels, I also saw some beach mats down in the lobby I'm sure were for guests. They also offered to do our laundry for us which was great. Got a decent sized load done and cost us 230 baht - maybe we could have gotten it slightly cheaper at a laundry facility, but who cares it's super cheap, they folded it nicely and it was convenient to have it done there - we definitely didn't mind supporting these lovely people.

All in all, if your expectations are in check and you don't expect to walk into a massive luxurious suite like you would at some of the larger hotel chains, you will be happy here. The personal touch is really sweet. We'd recommend.

We are two young professionals living downtown Toronto with no kids.

Couldn’t say anything negative about Kata Bai D. It is just a 5 min walk to Kata Beach and if you rent a motorbike you can drive by the coast and go beach hopping! Sam, the owner, was very accommodating from Day 1. He gave us tips on where to go, even drawing maps for us, recommended some good eating places (the seafood market at Rawai beach is the best!) Rooms are spotlessly clean. Very helpful and friendly staff – smiling the whole time. They lend you beach mats and beach umbrellas as well to bring to the beach. Thank you Kata Bai D! Will definitely be back! X, Randy and Sheryl.

My husband found this golden nugget Kata Bai D by chance! If I am honest I was not looking forward to it i did'nt want to go to Thailand let alone a not stay in a hotel, as we always stay in hotels All inclusive etc. We had the privalige of meeting Sam and the girls. The nicest friendliest, welcoming honest people we have ever met. We had the best holiday ever! Through Sam spending time with us and recommending different things, we met people and experienced so much we would never have done stopping in a big hotel. We stayed 7 nights then went on to Phi Phi and Lanta had a fab time but actualy missed Kata bai D it actualy feels like home, we went back and stayed again. Its very clean, good room size and great location. we both got emotional leaving. Cant wait to go back. Sam you are a true gentleman. Thank you Martyn and Sandra

Stayed at Kata Bai D' Boutique for 14 nights absolutely loved our time there. We couldn't have asked for more from Sam and his staff; so welcoming, friendly and great at organising trips, taxi's and knowledge of Thailand. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the beach and all main facilities, was beautifully clean, light with the comfiest beds ever!! Can't recommend this hotel enough to others. Thank you to Sam and his team for helping us to build memories to last a lifetime ☺ Love Baz & Rachel xXx
