Katathani Resort (Kata Noi Beach)
The resort has nearly 500 rooms and is divided into different wings spread along the beach and the very quiet road along the beachfront. The resort does not own the beach exactly, but I saw plenty of signs on the land fronting the beach saying "Katathani Hotel Guests Only". I guess the beach gets some day visitors, but if you are staying there it's almost a private beach. Kata Noi is pretty. You can see Koh Pu, the little island off Kata beach and you have rocky/jungly headlands at either end.
Katathani gets lots of rave reviews which is a good sign (that's reviews by people who have stayed there). Location is great, and you're not so isolated, even if you have that feeling of seclusion. Aside from the resort restaurants (5 of them I think), there are some other places to eat in Kata Noi, and Kata beach is only a few minutes drive away, or a 15 minute hike over the hill. And for all that, I do recommend thee!
