The Aspasia Hotel Is Kata Bay’s Hidden Gem

The Aspasia Hotel

The Aspasia Hotel in Phuket is one of the best four-star couples retreats, and honeymoon spots in Thailand. Located on the quiet end of Kata Bay, the hotel’s two towers sit nestled into a hillside overlooking the bay.
While you’ll see many of the typical vendors, motorboats and tuk tuks buzzing around Kata Beach, you won’t find the crowds at Kata that are ever-present at Patong Beach. That’s why honeymooners and couples keeping coming back to Kata Bay. With The Aspasia’s secluded location above Kata Beach, this hotel provides for the ultimate peaceful escape.

Beautiful Suites For Extended Stays

Spacious suites come complete with large balconies and kitchens. In our opinion, the Deluxe Seaview Suites are worth the extra baht. With beautifully adorned living rooms, enormous bathrooms, and magnificent views of Kata Bay, these suites are perfect for a week-long stay.

Breakfast At The Aspasia, Dinner Elsewhere

Breakfast is served indoors at The Aspasia, and offers made-to-order omelettes, eggs benedict, and plenty of fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner options are better found in town. While the restaurant at the hotel serves up some great dishes, they charge a premium, and the portions are small.

Warning: Walk To The Beach

The Aspasia’s claim that the walk to Kata Beach takes 2-minutes is seriously misleading. The adventurous walk to the beach takes about 10 minutes, and can be slippery, muddy, and highly taxing. A walk down the main road in front of the hotel will also get you to the beach, in about double the time. A taxi back to the hotel will cost you a little over 100 baht.

Choose Your Transportation Before You Go

The walk from the hotel to local shops and restaurants takes about 10 minutes. Whether you decide to rent a moped, take tuk tuk rides to and from town, or are willing to walk back and forth, you would be wise to choose your preferred transportation before you book at The Aspasia.

If you’re looking for peace and tranquility, The Aspasia is a great alternative to Phuket’s many chain hotels and resorts. With its beautiful architecture, amazing views, and spacious suites, this is truly one of the hidden gems in Phuket.
