Chanalai Garden Resort

The designers of the Chanalai Garden Resort have opted for a modern take on traditional Thai style. The bedrooms are smart and modern, while buildings are topped with traditional, pointy roofs.

The pools overlook the Andaman Sea. Both come with an adjoining bar and panoramic views of the bay below – and little ones get a pool to themselves, too.

At the restaurant, typical Thai cuisine is the order of the day. Show-cooking stations also mean you can have food cooked the way you like. After dinner, the lobby bar’s great for a relaxing drink.

Resort Summary

Holidays to Kata Beach undeniably revolve around its namesake – the long stretch of sand and warm, turquoise sea. Spreading out for just over a kilometre, Kata Beach has everything you could ask for: beautiful surroundings, great facilities, fun activities and nearby restaurants.

Come the low season, surfers flock to experience this beach’s impressive waves, while in the high season, the waters are beautifully calm, making them perfect for divers, snorkellers and swimming. If you’re in the town in December, you’ll be able to spot yachts arriving in the bay for the start of the prestigious King’s Cup Regatta, which is a spectacle not to be missed.

The beach is lined with restaurants serving lots of different types of food, and there are umbrellas and sun-loungers to rent too.​
