“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Stayed at this lovely hotel for 21 nights from the 5may to 26may. My wife and I found this hotel to be homely, friendly and relaxing.
We arrived late at night and were met by :Paul who assisted us and showed us to our room .
Room cleaning staff went out of their way to ensure our needs were met, nothing was too much trouble especially Max who many times knew what we wanted so we didnt have to ask.
Met Jim the next morning, and had a chat this guy knows how to run a hotel, and answered the few questions I asked. It was a shame the restaurant was being renovated and not open however this will only be an added asset when opened to the overall hotel.
Jim I think you have a winner in Paul your AM, I wasnt going to write this review because now im afraid next time when we ask for a two bedroom they will all be occupied.
Kamala has many Hotels and for value this is one of the best. Well done all Staff

Thank you for your kind words and great review, it is always nice when guests mention certain staff that made their stay memorable like Max our housekeeping lady, I read your review to her and she was smiling all day. Paul is also a great friendly guy that is always up for a chat if you are and more than happy to help with anything you may need.
the restaurant is now open again with a complete new kitchen and bar so we will be able to serve you some fantastic food when you come back in November.
see you again soon

Found this hotel by chance , someone was looking down on us , met the owner and manager on arrival , made very welcome , checked the rooms out , perfect , everyone has a pool side room , think there's about 15 rooms , mainly doubles , and a couple of rooms sleep 4 , so be warned book before , we got lucky turning up looking for 7 rooms in low season and just about got in , all the staff were brilliant , rooms serviced every day. , clean sheets every other, or more frequently if required.the beach at Kamala is gorgeous , about a five minute walk, plenty of bars restaurants and local food stalls all with in a minute of the hotel , just a perfect holiday venue , bars all closed at 2 am so your not listening to banging music all night , but if you want that your only a 400bhat taxi ride from patong that's about £8.
Never mentioned the restaurant as it was being refurbished as it was low season , but if the rest of the complex was anything to go by , I'd well imagine it would be right up to the mark, we were directed to some very nice restaurants and places to eat and drink, and one evening me and two of my friends were going to mams restaurant when it's started raining , the manager got his car and took us to the restaurant , and left his number and said if was raining when we'd finished he'd come back and collect us , which he did, thanks Paul,
Would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff
And especially the manager
Paul who went out of his way to make sure everything was in place and that we had a great holiday , thanks kind regards Michael Purcell room 6 . See you soon .

We came to this lovely Resort last year October feel so good, came again in April this year enjoy a week stay in here.

Last year can not enjoy the swimming pool due to daily heavy rains but this year very much enjoy the pool fun. The water in pool is crystal clear, much more clear than many International 5 star hotels. We really love it just like a child playing in the water for few hours until our skin all turn to be wrinkle.

Hotel staffs are very nice and efficient :::: We almost stay whole day in the room enjoy TV and internet, the cleaning staff will not show up ask for cleaning but once I went for supermarket and come back in very short time, the room has been clean up, amazing service than other hotel which always knock your door especially when you want to take more rest in the room.

The day before I check out, front desk staff come to my room and ask : What time are you leaving tomorrow ? Do you need a taxi waiting for you and take you to airport ? This is another wonderful and warmly service makes you feel very comfortable.

Another new service need to praising is ::: The resort provide a free shuttle services take you to the beach and bring you back to the resort. It is a nice and convenience arrangement for those customer who came with the children.

Other opinions to this resort are almost same as other Reviewers : "ht92" & "RIGGSY666", "Wonderful" & "Relaxing".

If you fed up of Patong too crowd and busy, need a quite place to relax and enjoy. This resort is definitely a first choice for you in Phuket.

hi U2,
thank you for your vote and review here on Trip Advisor, it is always a pleasure to see returning guests, we are all glad to hear that your stay was every bit what you expected and that you have noticed the improvements to the hotel and the extra services we have made/offer. We are now in the phase of improving these services even more with MOBILE PHONES being placed in every room for guest use during their stay, this will allow all guests to contact reception/room service and the bar to order/request all the services we offer without having to leave your room/poolside as well as allowing you to call outside numbers and home as a reasonable cost.
We have other improvements on the way to make anyone's stay MORE ENJOYABLE/RELAXED that will be introduced between now and December 2014.
Again thank you for taking the time to review us and hope to see you on your next trip to Thailand
Jim & all of us here at KTG & Taosha restaurant.

We loved this place and if we return to phuket we would not hesitate one moment to rebook.

The hotel is on the main kamala road at first I was a bit concerned about crossing the road and noise after reading some reviews. We where 2 adults a toddler and baby in a pushchair and we had no problems crossing the road and definitely no problem with noise.

Our room was really spacious ( two adults, toddler and baby in the room), huge comfy bed, brand new bathroom with an Italian shower, a big comfy sofa, coffee table, flat screen tv, complimentary bottled water every day, coffee and tea making facility, and a brilliant kitchenette really well equipped it made heating the baby's food and sterilise her bottles a simple task for me.

Lovely little terrasse outside the room perfect for an evening drink around the beautiful swimming pool and garden.

Beautiful and clean swimming pool the kids loved it, there was even a basket of toys for the water to keep the kids happy. Plenty of comfy sun loungers and parasols for all the guest. There's a cute little pool bar which comes to live in the evening which play music until around midnight. But don't worry about the noise if you like to go to bed early once you are in the room, doors closed aircon on you can't hear a thing (we were in the room right next to the bar and I'm a light sleeper).

I think the most important thing for me in hospitality is the service and here the team is just top. The receptionists were great, the young lad who made my omelette at breakfast had a smile on his face all the time a seemed to really enjoy what he was doing, the house keeping lady was a darling. Unfortunately our baby daughter fell ill during our stay in kamala and everybody really tried their best to help, so a big thanks to the team, Jedda and a massive thank you to Jim for his kindness and generosity.

Myself,gf and friend really enjoyed our stay at the tropical garden hotel.We found it extremely comfortable and it had everything you need.Within the room and out.Just sitting off the main road is this little quiet oasis and you soon feel relaxed as soon as you get there with a very warm welcome.Great pool which is very clean with a pool bar that opens later in the day,loungers and fountains which add to the atmosphere.The area is very well kept.The rooms,also cleaned everyday have good aircon,a variety of mini bar services,good wifi,good on wall tv,black out patio door glass and so on.Having travelled all over Thailand for 3 months this room was one of if not the most comfortable on our travels.The staff here are very friendly.Jim the owner takes great pride in this place and is a very approachable guy,where nothing is a problem.All the other servers and staff are also very polite and friendly.Also thanks to Paul for making us all feel welcome, the laughs and giving tips etc about the area.Its a cracking place here and i hope it only goes from strength to strength.Ill certainly be back one day!Keep up the good work guys.Cheers!

This is a little paradice ! Hidden away , just off the main highway ,so convenient and yet quiet with great staff and facilities . The bungalows form a circle around the swimming pool , the restaurant is superb with a massive wooden feature roof . Food excellent , have not tried breakfast though . Walking easy to all bars , restaurants and beach . Just booked my UK family to stay there from late April . Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book early ! It's new and becoming popular !

Stayed here for a week late March/early April. Nice comfortable, well appointed and clean roms, serviced daily. Clean pool with a pool bar. Friendly and helpful staf and management. Couldn't find fault with any aspect of our stay. Located on a busy road choc full of bars and restaurants and an easy 15 minute walk to an exciting beach and beachside cafes and bars and shops. Kamala Tropical Garden is located close to Phantasea and also the open night markets. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommended this place to anyone, solo, couple or family, it's ideal.

Room Tip: All the rooms open to the pool and are all quiet with no traffic noise.

From all of us at KTG a big thanks for your great review,we are glad you enjoyed your stay both with us and in Phuket/Kamala. Kamala is a great place to base yourself when visiting Phuket, just 15-20 mins from Patong if you want the crazy nightlife it has to offer yet far enough away for some peace and quiet. Great beach (in my opinion one of the best on the island) nice relaxed atmosphere with everything you need to make a great holiday including our unique restaurant "TAOSHA". Look out for the BLUE LIGHT TREES on the main road KAMALA.
