Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Kamala Beach is not a hotel for families, as it does not accept bookings for children under 15 years of age. So, it is usually friends and couples who tend to stay here. The situation is a little odd, since the hotel's identical twin, the Sunwing Resort, accepts children, and is only separated from the Kamala Beach by a row of bushes. We couldn't then see what the point was, since there were children just next door... Anyway, this hotel has the advantage of being located close to the beach of the same name, but the deckchairs are not included in the price. The Kamala Beach has no other facilities, not even a spa, which is, to our mind, a major asset for a seaside holiday nowadays. However, there is a small area in the garden, where massages are provided in the open air.

    Location 7.5 /10

    The hotel is not located directly on Kamala Beach, but it is very close by. This beach, situated on the west coast, is about 15 mi away from Phuket Town, which is half an hour's drive away, depending on traffic. Allow 20 minutes to drive to Patong, whereas transfers to the airport will take about 45 minutes.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    With 353 guest rooms, the hotel's capacity is rather substantial. They are all gathered in two large impersonal two-storey buildings, the Grand Wing and the Beach Wing, with corridors which are vaguely reminiscent of hospital corridors. In the spacious guest rooms, contemporary decoration is coupled with parquet flooring and wooden furniture. The balcony is equipped with a table and two chairs, but it isn't very big. The bathroom is a little gloomy, but it has a large bathtub, fitted with a frosted glass pane to protect the privacy of bathers. All of the basic amenities are present, but the whole room does lack character.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Open since 1999 and last renovated in 2009, the Kamala Beach consists of an elongated building that stretches along the beach. The lobby, arranged with modern furniture, does display some Asian touches, most notably a mural, found behind the reception counter. Background music livens up the atmosphere a bit, but the heady smell of damp spoils it somehow. Air freshener is a failed attempt at masking the emanations. Music is also played outside, but it could be turned down a notch. The main pool is surrounded by lush greenery. However, the solarium isn't very spacious and the parasols set next to the deckchairs have seen better days. A second pool is situated near the beach, with identical amenities. Two further pools are attached to these first pools, but they are much smaller. The Kamala Beach unfortunately doesn't have a spa, but it is possible to have a massage in the kiosk located between the two pools.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Two restaurants are available at the Kamala Beach, namely one in each building. The first one, the Prime Kitchen by the Pool, is open in high season only, for buffet lunch and dinner. The cuisine is essentially international, but you will also be able to try some Thai dishes. The decoration is quite poor, and few elements are there to give the place some character. The second restaurant, the Prime Kitchen by the Sea, is open for lunch and dinner similarly, but this place is also open for breakfast, which is served as an American buffet. It also boasts a terrace that looks out to the beach, but the space between the tables doesn't allow for much privacy. At lunch time, the price of a dish is approximately £4.50. However, the smell emanating from the rubbish bins kept next to the second pool, warmed by the sun, isn't very pleasant...

    Beach 7.20 /10

    To get to the beach, all you need to do is walk across the promenade of Kamala Beach. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get any privacy on the beach because of the incredible number of deckchairs, all crammed together. Nevertheless, there is still enough space for you to make out the fairly fine sand, and the clear sea. The plastic deckchairs belonging to the hotel are available for a fee, but the overcrowded beach isn't very inviting. Before walking on the sand, be careful where you put your feet, since there are ropes strewn all over the beach... Various shops line the beach, as well as some massage kiosks. There are some water sports huts located nearby, but none are owned by the hotel. Diving, sailing and kayaking are available here, among other things.

    To know

    Free Internet access is available in the hotel lobby, but you will have to pay a supplement if you wish to use it in your room.
    The Kamala Beach hotel stands next door to the Sunwing Resort, and from the outside, they are completely identical. The two hotels are simply separated by a hedge. In fact, the only thing they share is the mini super market.
    A small gym is available to guests who like to exercise. However, there is a ridiculously small number of apparatus in comparison with the number of rooms.

      Luxury, isolation, exclusivity: in an exceptional environment, the Chedi interprets a high standard partition which makes it one of the most beautiful hotels in Phuket. After the tidal wave that affected Phuket on 26th December 2004, the Chedi suffers minimum damages on a few bungalows and the beach restaurant, but the hotel works normally.

      Located bordering Laguna Beach, the Bangtao Beach Resort has been existing since 2003. Find out about the road before coming here, it is located on a small street, where you will not think you will find a hotel. The staff of this hotel is very friendly and smiley. This hotel suits people who are looking for simple but effective comfort.

      • Location 3.3

      Just like its twin establishments, the Kamala Beach and the Patong Beach, the Courtyard Phuket at Surin Beach is definitively a family hotel. The children's club is a true paradise for kids: it's built on several levels and offers all sorts of activities. Located at the heart of the hotel, parents are never far. Bought in 2008 by the Marriott group, this is a well kept establishment despite having been around for a long time. However, the lack of facilities will prove disappointing to sports enthusiasts. The hotel isn't exactly a seaside establishment, but the beach is relatively close.

      The Courtyard Phuket at Kamala Beach is perfect for families, as seen in the facilities its children's club has to offer. Different areas have been set up to cater to several age categories and the workshops on offer are sure to delight children and adults alike. As for comfort, the hotel has also risen to the challenge: all of the rooms are suites. However, the beach is some 400m from the hotel and the path leading to it runs parallel to the road. Plus, the fact that guests have to pay to use the deckchairs is regrettable.

      It is difficult if not impossible not to be charmed by this calm and relaxing place. The Manathai is a superb boutique hotel, open since 2006. Its unique decoration is much more refined than in certain grand palaces. However, you do not come here for the organised activities, as there are not any. Nevertheless, couples will be delighted to stay there. A beautiful success!

      • Location -

      Located near Karon beach, the Woraburi is a small comfortable town hotel with no facilities other than a pool and a restaurant. Nonetheless, it is still an ideal departure point for exploring the town on foot. There are lots of shops next to the hotel, but if shopping isn't your thing and you prefer to laze around on the beach, there is a public beach that you can go to but you will have to walk across the road to get to it, as is the case with all the beaches in Thailand. Moreover, there are no deck chairs or parasols set up for the hotel guests on the beach.

      The Karon Beach has the major advantage of being built directly on Karon beach itself. Its small size is another advantage, given that it only has 80 rooms, although these are unfortunately a little on the small side. You will also be pleased to hear that the restaurant serves delicious food and offers magnificent views.

      The Cape Sienna stands high up overlooking the entire Kamala Beach bay and affords spectacular sea views. This place would be perfect though....in a city! Its main drawback is that there is very little about it that says 'seaside' hotel. It may well have two swimming pools but you're a good way from the beach, not to mention the fact that the second pool is across the road from the establishment! The communal areas are also disappointingly cramped, but if you like to be in close proximity to other people, you'll be quite happy here!

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
