Where to Stay
Katamanda is a high-end luxury villa estate set in lush jungle overlooking Kata and Kata Noi Beach in southwest Phuket - Thailand's premiere resort destination.
Fifteen privately owned villas are available for rent, long or short term. Ten villas have their own swimming pool. Villa sizes range from two to six bedrooms. All are well appointed and totally private.
It's a unique and very attractive idea.
As soon as you enter the property you can feel the soothing effects of its surroundings. For many that's precisely the attraction. There is sun, privacy, peace, and magnificent gardens. Several villas enjoy sublime views of the Andaman Sea.
This a place to get comfortably numb, to soak up the moment. All on your own terms.
Each villa comes with a different architectural design and interior style - the decor according to the owner's personal taste.
Many of them are visual feasts. All are distinctly individual. Some have walls adorned with apsaras and beautiful Khmer wood carvings; some come with tasteful Asian layouts with original hangings, Cambodian silks, carved figures, bas-reliefs, tapestries and large flat TV screens. Others have a more Mediterranean feel, and one can only be described as laid back Balinese. They all contain everything you need and much more.
The estate is also extremely well-managed, totally secure and all villas are cleaned daily.
Katamanda is perfect for the more savvy, self sufficient traveller - those who have enough taste to pick a beautiful area, and enough vision not to stay in a resort or hotel. Nice as resorts and hotels can be, they do tend to come with certain rules and various restrictions.
Those who opt for Katamanda prefer to stay in a place with their own front door. A home away from home that isn't yours, but quickly feels like it is. This not only allows complete independence but also offers an experience that is liberating, and economically, makes a lot of sense.
For those who enjoy a quieter pace than the Patong Beach area, Kata boasts a selection of excellent restaurants and funky shops all just a gentle stroll away.
In other words, you are in it, but not of it.
