“Exceptional family resort”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Sunwing is an amazing family resort, they literally have thought of everything. We stayed in a studio room with our 2 children aged 8 and 11, the room was spotlessly clean, modern and very functional with a great view over the pools with the jungle mountains in the background, really quite spectacular. The buffet breakfast was exceptional with probably the largest variety of foods I have seen an a buffet. The restaurant meals were of a very high standard and great value with Thai meals at around $6 and the kids eating free, the local restaurants could not compete with this value and the service was efficient and friendly. Kamala consists of a few resorts, a beautiful beach ( even in the rainy season, though surf quite big), beach restaurants and bars and a small tourist shopping precinct and a small town on the main road. Patong is 7km ($16) taxi ride if you want more retail opportunities or some of Thailands world famous night life.
Sunwing is a world class resort and I would recommend it strongly to families looking for a purpose built, high quality, safe resort.

Room Tip: Views from the higher floors a fantastic. Restaurant staff allowed our kids to order 2 meals each as...

Great pools. Great location. Nice and clean. Attentive staff. Well appointed room. Good dining in resort at reasonable prices. One big issue though......it's noisy. We stayed in a family suite and the noise proofing between floors and rooms was terrible. The hallways are like tunnels and every person that walked past our room and talked, we could here their conversation. Kids running up and down the hallway at 6 in the morning were obviously not appreciated nor were people coming back to rooms really late at night. Sleep quality was therefore low. If you must stay in a family suite, get the 4th floor as at least you won't have anyone above you. (We stayed on the 4th)
Finally, I was a little disappointed that they charged me 1000 bt for staying in my room an extra 4 hours when the resort was only half full and both rooms next to me we're already cleaned and free for 24 hours before I checked out.

This hotel is targeted towards young families, ideally children around 10 and under, and does a very good job of serving this market. There are specialised rooms set up for young ones, with small single beds & cots included, and much of the decor (in the main areas) is bright & colourful. The children have a range of 7 pools to choose from, none of which go over about 1 metre 50 in depth, and there are three pools with very shallow splash areas for toddlers (one under a shade cloth). The hotel is set well back from the main road and the beach, so there is no ambient noise, and outside of school holidays (when we went), it appears very quiet. The breakfast selection is wide ranging and excellent. Lunch and dinner at the hotel are a bit expensive, though kids menus at lower prices are available, and if under 10 years old, they eat for free in the evening when accompanied by an adult. The restaurant conveniently also offers takeaway food for lunch / dinner, though there are also plenty of inexpensive eating options along the beach. There is a kids club for young ones during the day, and in the evenings, there are usually TV shows projected onto a wall while parents are eating, and a couple of other "shows" a few times a week (e.g. clowns; acrobatics; etc.). The hotel is set back from Kamala beach which has pretty rough surf, unsuitable for children excepting at low tide, and there are lifeguards on duty during the day. A great place to relax for a few days and "do nothing much", with the kids safe and having fun in the pool. Free WiFi - if you need it - is available in the main dining area.

Room Tip: Look at the room options and decide upon the best option for your family based on your kids' age...

We Had Great Stay In Decent Accommodations. Amenities Are Basic, Overall Place Is Organized And Clean At Great Location Right At Kalang Beach.

With The Beach And Many Pools Our 3 Kids Ages 9,11,13 Had A Blast. Tons Of Cozy Food And Bar Huts On Beach. Uncrowded Beach. For Nice Couple Getaway Suggest Elsewhere, But With Kids Definite Comeback Place For Us

Kids loved our poolside room which was definitely worth the extra charge. The staff was very nice and had good facilities. The restaurant wasn't particularly good, but wasn't too bad either. Quality of Fino was better than La Tesca. However, my only real complaint is that for the extra 1000 baht per week charge for Internet, you would expect a good connection. It was basically useless during the days and generally only worked late night or early morning.

Stayed here for 6 nights in June 2013 with my daughter aged 5.
We had a great time at this resort. It is perfect for families if you are looking for a good resort to stay at in Phuket. And in Phuket that is just what you want with kids... Because the streets are really not very child friendly with lots of traffic and people everywhere.
Kamala is not a charming place, so you tend to stay at the resort, and then you travell to go shopping/sightseeing etc.

We had a Pool Access Room and that was really worth the extra money. If you however feel unsafe at ground floor then opt for the 3rd floor rooms. The rooms are all good sized and well-kept. The beds are just on the hard side..like everywhere in Thailand.
The only complaint would be noise...the air-con was extremely noisy and the fridge and the corridor...

The restaurant is cheap and the food is good. There is a free kids-menu with both thai and western food, just perfect!
The mini-market has a good selection of foods and drinks, and the prices are not bad.
The kids-club is super! The thai girls working there are just fantastic, the swedish girls however seemed tired and not very motivated....

Overall we had a really good time at Sunwing Kamala, and would stay there again.
