We stayed at the Kata View Villa (Kathmanda villa E5) with friends and we loved it! The villa is a bit off the main road in a gated villa community and tuk tuks are not allowed inside, so you have to walk from the gate, but the location is great! Quiet, residential, like a true holiday home.
The villa is displayed over 3 levels so you have a lot of area to hang out on. Everyone can find their own space.
The view from the bedrooms on the top floor is amazing! The villa's kitchen is super! Top standard with dishwasher and everything you need! There is also a washing machine and dryer. Bedrooms are very spacious, quite simple but nice. The terraces outside are great, with a covered seating area on the main living floor. There is also a separate outdoor room for massages. The pool is BIG and clean. The deck around the pool isn't that big and has only 4 sun loungers, but you spend most of the time on a floating pool mattress anyway...
As the villa is a bit tucked away from the main road it's a good idea to rent a car or like we did, hire a driver for the whole week.
Booking and arriving at the villa was smooth and easy. The villa manager is very friendly and helpful!
The only bad thing was that the villa next door was under construction during our stay and it was a lot of noise from there. But after some "negotiation" they reduced the noise and work in order to minimise disturbance.
The internet and wifi is pretty crap, but that is Kata for you... There was also power failures frequently, but that is normal too.
The villa community also has a small gym (very basic and small but pretty ok) and a breakfast/lunch restaurant, common pool and tennis court that you can use. We ordered food from the restaurant and also from outside and had it delivered to the villa. Convenient!
There was some small things broken in the villa and we asked the villa manager to have them fixed and she did. Good service all in all!
Will be back!
