AMAZING stay! Go for the hill side sea view pool villa and it will be worth every penny spent on it. We would highly recommend it to any couple, especially on a special anniversary or a romantic honeymoon. If the weather is too hot and you do not want to walk up the hill to your Villa, the Shore will offer complimentary buggy rides to your door. Even if the weather is not the perfect beach weather, The Shore is the one place I can say that staying inside your room would feel divine. Service is quick and we found there was hardly any wait for any item of our choice even when the resort seemed to be at full occupancy. The toiletries smell so heavenly and the room is decorated with so many thoughtful little touches that it shows the effort that the Shore puts to make the guest’s experience memorable. The Sea view pool villa pictures on the resort’s website are true to what you could expect. Rooms were extremely spacious. Although the service at the Shore’s restaurants which we dined at was very attentive, the food and breakfast varieties could use some improvement. Certain staff were more friendly and helpful than others but overall, we were very impressed and would highly recommend The Shore to anyone looking to spend some quiet time and feel like royalty!

I cannot praise the service and this place enough! We stayed for 3 nights after a 4 night stay at the sister hotel (Katathani Phuket) with a special online deal. This place is a whole leap above any of the hotels we've ever been to!
The check in was very personal and smooth. Sylvia was amazing! She helped us with checking on tours and doing anything possible to make our stay extra special. She was so personal and her service was just excellent! The staff on the whole we're fantastic! Everyone was smiling and always there to be of any help without any of the guests even asking.
The room!!!! Oh my!!! Just stunning!! Everything was spotless and perfect. We had the ocean view villa with a private infinity pool. Words are unable to describe it. You'll just have to book this place and experience it!
Breakfast and afternoon tea is included which were great. Free wifi was included too. The hotel's infinity pool overlooked the beach and the ocean. We felt no real need to go to the beach. Plus you had to pay for a beach chair which was pointless as the hotel was a stone's throw away. Kata Noi beach is the best beach in phuket though- fewer people cleaner beach and not many people hassling you! There was really nothing to fault the place!
The only real thing (if anything) was that you would have to walk over a hill to get into Kata town which would be a 15-20min walk in sweltering heat. You could get the hotel shuttle to drive you a short way but you would have to walk the difficult part. Tuk Tuks cost 200baht to get into kata town (a 3-5mim drive) which we thought was daylight robbery and we would take early evening walks into town instead.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday! It was so hard to leave and return to reality.

- our room wasn't ready when we checked in, it was quickly remedied with a free lunch at The Harbor restaurant
- hotel is located at the end of Kata Noi beach, quiet, private, a cove with a great stretch of beach. There was litter on the beach during our stay.
- Well-guarded property, with security at the entrances ensuring only guests are allowed into The Shore
- DVD rentals at the library is a plus point
- It was great to have the option to use Katathani's (sister hotel) facilities
- We enjoyed having breakfast delivered to the room during our stay (complimentary), but this can be improved if the meals arrived warmer.
- 3:30-5:30pm complimentary tea at The Harbor is a welcome treat after spending the afternoon lounging at the infinity pool or beach
- very easy to switch between the beach & pool at this property
- friendly staff, but some were poor in English
- layout and design of villa is modern, spacious with Thai decor elements, fresh flowers and scent burner is a nice touch
- private pool is much bigger & deeper than the pictures shared so far
- the property never feels crowded, hardly saw any guest
- plenty of bugs being amongst trees, recommend using the mosquito spray provided
- humidity in the room gets uncomfortable after opening the sliding doors after a night of air-condition, ever thing seems to be sweating/damp
- Thai dishes served for the room service menu is delicious and fairly priced

We stayed here for 1 week and i have nothing but positive things to say. Our villa was amazing with beautiful views of the sea and beach. The service was impeccable and the staff were just so lovely. Always approaching us with a smile and nothing was never too much. We stayed in room 8831 and it was just simply amazing. We are looking forward to visiting again soon. Thank you again.

Where does one start here? This place has to be without doubt the best place we've ever had the good fortune to stay in. From the moment we walked into our villa unit we were almost lost for words, even the Princess was unusually quiet. The views are as everyone else here has said - amazing. I think all we could both mutter was "wow" or some other totally understated adjective.

The pictures on their website are pretty much exactly what you get, although that might vary ever so slightly depending on which villa you end up with. We asked for a villa higher up the hill based on what others have said here. I think we may have ended up with one that is featured on their website.

Villa 8843 is about as good as it gets if you can't get that one ask for anything on the 4th level "Turtle Alley". But having said that I'd think any of the villas would still be fantastic. The main difference is the higher up the hill the more privacy you have which is great for those who wish to take advantage of their Infinity pool.

The room itself is furnished beautifully, the shower is probably big enough to fit 5 people.

All the staff are absolutely lovely, all were respectful, courteous, professional and friendly. Special mention must go to Sylvia at the lobby and Ya and Mee our lovely buggy drivers. You made us feel like royalty and helped make our first holiday in Thailand perfect.

I find it hard to understand how anyone could find fault with this place. I think some people are just too hard to please and would likely find fault with everything in life.

We count our holiday in Phuket as the best beach holiday we've ever had.

Thank you all so much we will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa further up the hill on the 4th level "Turtle Alley"
