Sugar Palm Grand Hillside
stunning architecture, high quality, affordable
Cleanliness of room and hotel were second to none. Cleanest place we stayed in over the three week holiday across Thailand and islands. Quality of service highly professional; room service, golf buggy service for customer luggage or if customer is elderly or has a disability. Staff allowed us to use their computer due to a fault on the reception PCs. Free internet free printing free wifi for room and pool area. Complimentary items in the mini bar (full size fridge). We were upgraded to a corner room with a sea view, private jacuzzi on balcony due to our trip being a private celebration. The architecture is breathtaking! Hotel on a hill so they've built 4 or 5 infinite swimming pools with the illusion that each one is a waterfall into the one below. 5 min walk to Kata Beach. Great breakfast. 100% recommend. Word of caution: extremely steep but short distance hill to entrance difficult to walk up if you have a pram/elderly/wheelchair. Apart from!

Bussines man one night stay type hotel
Hi The hotel is located 1.5 hr drive from airport and in on a very steep hill, most taxis and tour busses want to leave you at ghe bottom of the hill for you to claim it . Not suitable for older people or families and if you are in general not as fit and strong . Our room was in a upper level which was great for the view and private pool ghat teo room shares - its nice to cool down after a long day . However to get there was something else - 1 elevator to 4 floor then walk acros the whole building take another elevator to 9 floor and then clAim two more floors of stairs - i mean you need 10 min just to go down from your romm to loby ans then another 5 to main road Beach was close by , nice but nothing special a lot of russian tourist and prices of food is ober inflated and the food itself not great - we asked for local people places and walked to main road to have some nice simple street food and it was cheap and fantastic The hotels room shower needs ipgarding as tiles were mouldy and toilet seat very ssqueeky and hard to open Mini pool by ghe room not so clean and fake grass carpet surpunding it was strange The hotel has this modern concrete design and it was not cosy and not romantic at all , grey and white rooms more like bussiness man one night stay hotel - we were glad we stayed juat two night and used it as a base for trips

Fabulous stay
What a fantastic hotel. Located at the quiet end of Kata it provided a peaceful and tranquil location for our stay. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a cooling drink and checked in without any fuss. In fact the staff throughout our stay went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Our room was a good size with a large king sized bed. Lots of extras (bathrobe, slippers etc) were a welcome addition as was the minibar being refilled everyday on the house! The infinity pools were gorgeous and we were lucky enough to have them to ourselves for a lot of our stay. Breakfast was substantial and filling and set us up for the day. Loved our stay so much that booked for a further 5 nights after returning from a tour. Free luggage storage was provided for us whilst away and we were upgraded to vip status as returning guests ( free airport transfer, discounts on hotel services etc) absolutely fantastic and a lovely touch showing they value their guests. We look forward to our return here in the future!
