Kata has a good spread of accommodation to suit most styles and budgets. Good hostels and guesthouses cluster near the north end of Kata, where it flows into Karon, while fancier hotels and resorts lie further south, spilling over into Hat Kata Noi.

Beach Centre

If you're stuck without shelter, you'll probably find a room at the Beach Centre, a complex of townhouses packed with many guesthouses. From Th Kata, turn inland just south of the intersection with Th Thai Na; it's signposted.
