My husband and I stayed for a week at Kamala Beach Resort in February 2013 at the end of a fortnight's tour of Thailand. We were in the adults only hotel with the family hotel just nextdoor. We were staying on an all-inclusive basis and were allowed to use all the facilities of the adjacent hotel as well as our own. Our room was large and extremely comfortable with a very nice bed, lovely cotton bedding and large, good quality towels. Beach towels were huge and could be exchanged daily at the pool if required. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the pool. There were two large pools as well as all the pools nextdoor so they never got crowded and you could have a really good swim. One of the pools had a swim-up bar. There was never a shortage of loungers. The restaurants were a mix of a a carte and buffet and all the food could not be faulted. The asian banquet night had to be seen to be believed with the most amazing seafood on offer and local dancers as entertainment. In the a la carte restaurant the staff did everything they could to ensure you enjoyed the food, asking whether you anted it spicy or less spicy and with or without sauces. We really enjoyed the local fruit which was always available at mealtimes. Breakfast was a buffet with a bewildering array of choices.
When we initially arrived, we thought the beach looked horrendously crowded with loungers and people as it is a public beach and loungers have to be hired. However, you only have to walk a short distance from the hotel to find a quiet spot as the beach is quite extensive and if we turned right along the beach, we could go snorkeling from the beach amingst the rocks.
The hotel is within easy walking distance from the village which has ample shopping and banking opportunities and there are a school and a temple which both welcome visitors, so you can absorb some local culture. The only disappointment we had was that the shuttle bus was not included as at our previous hotels in Thailand, shuttle buses were free. On the shuttle bus, you can travel to Patong if you want to see some nightlife or just to have a change of scene.
Wi fi was included and you could use the computers in reception for a small charge if you had not brought any wifi appliances. We had a lovely relaxing break here and we were sorry to leave.
