Kamala Beachfront Apartment
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Good points....Very large rooms with large en suite. Rooms were clean, basic design but well equipped, tv, wifi, balcony etc. Lovely big clean pool at rear with lots of sun beds. Walkable to a must see show, Fantasea (large expensive circus show - do mind as they con you to hand in cameras so you pay 700bht+ for one of their photos)
Bad points....very hard bed but was okay for a couple of nights. Lack of staff, nor could any speak much English. Jacuzzi built into pool and had to be turned on/off via staff. Very little local amenities (use the beach heading south to find shops)
Overall....we paid half the price of other hotels and this was a bargain even though it had its faults. We enjoyed our brief stay.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled as a couple

Spacious apartments in a great location, we had an upstairs 2 bedroom apartment which was perfect for our needs, family of 4 with 14 and 12 Year old boys. Having the beach so close is a definite advantage with easy access for the kids and also providing a great view from the balcony especially at sunset.
Plenty of good bars and restaurants near by as well as mini mart and a local shop around the corner.
Accommodation was clean and serviced daily, staff friendly but not intrusive (there if you needed them). If you want 5 star service such as room service, swim up bars or buffet breakfasts, not he place for you. If you want a relaxed holiday with minimal fuss and plenty of room to spread out then this is the place.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and a studio room, for three nights. We liked the property's offering as a whole, and will definitely come back.

Pros:
1) The 2 bedroom apartment is very spacious and ideal for a family of four. The balcony faces the sea, and has a great view.
2) The apartments are clean, and well maintained. They have all the amenities that a family needs.
3) The location is right on the beach. The beach is not the cleanest, but it is as good as any other beach in Phuket during the rainy season. We prefer staying at Kamala beach, as it is more quiet and safer for families.
4) A reasonable portfolio of 4-5 restaurants, a bar, and a massage place, are located within 100 meters on either side of the property. A more extensive array of eating options and mini-marts, are available within a 10 min walk.
5) The manager there, Ms Chancheera, is helpful.
6) Wifi service in the room is excellent.

Cons:
1) The property provides basic services, and housekeeping is not available in the evening.
2) Studio rooms have no real view.

Recommendation:
This place is ideal for families who want to stay together, and are happy to forgo the hotel services option, for a more quiet time. There is minimal interference, and it feels like you have just transported your home to a new location. It is definitely not an option for a couple, looking at a romantic holiday. The services are centered around being utilitarian, and not luxury.

So, if you have a family and are looking for a hassle free holiday in a great location, where you can spend time with your loved ones, this is the place.

Room Tip: For a family of four, the two bedroom apartments are the best. If your kids are very young, take the...

We stayed in 2 ground floor apartments in May. A quiet, small complex of apartments. Perfect position right on the seafront. It was the start of the low season so a lot of things were closed and the whole town was quiet, but it was a perfect escape for our group after 3 weeks in Thailand staying in resorts. The apartments are very large, clean, air conditioned & fan, serviced daily, with full kitchen facilities. Lounge suite, kitchen table, TV, free wi-fi. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom. Table & chairs on the balcony area. A few steps into the pool and then a few more steps on to the beach. Fantastic. Lots of places to get breakfast along the seafront and also to have dinner, with magnificent view of kamala beach. Kamala township had many restaurants. A short drive to Patong. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor direct access to pool

Very nice accommodation in excellent location at the beach.

This place is small and quiet apartment building. We stayed at upstairs two bedroom apartment, it was spacious, clean, and well maintained. Balcony offered nice view to the beach. Small issues with one air-con unit and one shower head. Also bathroom ventilation wasn't working properly in one of the bedrooms.

Small pool was nice if you didn't want to walk for 30 seconds to get refreshed in the sea.

Free computer use at the lobby was convenient, there was also free wifi at the lobby area. Internet connection was slow but it worked. There were books and DVDs available for free use at the office. Office was selling bottled water with very reasonable prices. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We had breakfast at the neighboring restaurant Pond, left on the beach, the food and service were excellent. The beachfront is full of bars, shops, and massage places to choose from. On the street side of the apartment building there were shops to get your fridge and snack needs filled up.

All in all very pleasant experience.

Right on the beach. Surrounded by food, sea, massage, cafes, bars, tourist shops. Fantastic family holiday apartments. BUT downstairs are damp and mouldy, suffering from hot moist air from the sea, and quite unhealthy. Be sure to book upstairs, or insist on a thorough clean of downstairs apartment and inspection before arrival.

There is surf here, and you can hire a board from one of the bars around the surf club.

Like everywhere in Thailand, you take the rough with the smooth (unless you stay 5 star). This place is just perfect for our getaway. Loving it, and the internet works fine.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are free from mould and damp.
