After opening in 2014, Kata Rocks quickly gained a reputation as one of the hottest destinations in Thailand and has become a favourite with the celebrity crowd. Explorer Bear Grylls recently purchased a private penthouse apartment at the resort and describes it as "discreet but spectacular".
Kata Rocks' restaurant is located on the water's edge and serves modern Mediterranean food with a Spanish influence and a hint of Thai flavours. Executive Chef Laia Pons moved to Kata Rocks in August last year having previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurants in Barcelona. Highlights of the menu include poached lobster with bisque emulsion, mussels steamed in Vermouth and slow-roasted baby pig. For the ultimate experience, opt for "dining on the rocks", where the team will set up a table by the sea and serve you a five-course candlelit dinner.
YPI Senior Charter Broker Annemarie Gathercole was impressed when she recently visited Kata Rocks. "It's a beautiful place, the apartments are lovely and the spa facilities excellent."
If you want to take a more hands-on-approach then try Kata Rocks' new Thai cooking school. The private lessons, held in one of the resort's Sky Villas, teach participants how to cook a three-course Thai meal from scratch.
While you are on dry land take advantage of Kata Rocks' award-winning spa, which also offers family spa days with a selection of treatments dedicated to children aged between 5 and 12.
