Exclusive Kata Beach hotels: The best 5 star luxury resorts

Kata Beach is situated near the southern point of Phuket on the Andaman Sea just south of Karon Beach. The wide and flat sandy beach, beautifully situated on a pleasant bay, is an ideal destination for all occasions and recreational choices. Kata Centre is at the north end of the beach while Kata South is located at the lower end. Interesting and unusual shops line the streets, so finding unique gifts and souvenirs is easy.
And whether you prefer to dine on fresh seafood, a broad range of international cuisines or very flavorful Thai food, the options are vast.
Surfing is considered to be at its peak from May to October when the waves are best. So this could be a great time to add surfing to your list of skills if you haven’t already. And conveniently, the Surf House is a great way for the novice to get his “feet wet”. Here you can have surfing lessons while working out on a man-made surf pool. And when you have had enough, it is only a few short steps to the bar as you ponder whether to continue your career in surfing or decide to tackle the real surf outside.
Since Kata Beach is close to the Equator, you may expect warm weather all year long. There are a few rainy months, though there are dry transitional periods in between.
