Overview

Family-run retreat in laid-back Kamala with an organic spa and an infinity pool overlooking the Andaman Sea

The Lowdown

A 30-minute drive from the bustle of Phuket town, the family-run Ayara Kamala Resort showcases Thailand’s natural assets, from the fresh seafood served at the Cradle restaurant and the organic treatments at the spa to the Andaman Sea views from the infinity pool. Local designer Khun V has created 42 stylish guestrooms that range from simple but chic balcony rooms to vast Grand Pool Villas. And Khun V’s daughter, who trained at the Swiss Hotel Management School, brings expert hospitality skills to the mix. Hot days and sultry nights see guests cooling off at the Ayara Parlour (which has a 360-degree glass-walled upper deck), at the quintessentially Thai spa or at the Overflow bar, where cocktails are a specialty. Guests can also sign up for scuba diving, cooking classes and visits to local tailors.

In the Area

If it’s peace and quiet you’re looking for in Phuket, then Kamala is just the spot, with its villagey atmosphere and a smattering of seafood shacks and shops. The top place to dine is the low-key, family-run Charoen Seafood restaurant, which has been serving the freshest seafood for the past 20 years. Families will enjoy the fantastically kitsch Phuket Fantasea theme park. If high culture is more your cup of tea, it’s worth hopping over to nearby Phuket town for a wander around its Chinese temples, Portuguese shop houses and cool new boutiques and cafés; try the China Inn Café for lunch and Suay for a contemporary Thai dinner.

5 star experience

It was my first time in Thailand, i spent 4 nights at Ayara Kamala Resort in Phuket Island as part of my honeymoon trip. We were welcomed by the friendly staff at the reception Ta and Dew, and then we went to our room using golf shuttle, The room was spacious, clean and lovely and the view of the ocean from the balcony was so beautiful, especially the sunset it was magical, i will never forget it. Our drivers Faisal and Mahmoud advised us about the best places to visit in Phuket Island. Ayara Kamala is 20 minutes far from Patong Beach where all the fun and shopping malls are there. We woke up next day and went to have breakfast, the view of the hotel in the morning is so relaxing and especially the location of the restaurant you can have a top view of everything around the hotel. I was addicted to fresh mashed Avocado made by Chef Kurt and Kewan, everyday I ordered the same dish, the breakfast buffet was so fresh and delicious. The waiters at the restaurant were also friendly and I really enjoyed talking to them and knowing more about their beautiful country. Ayara Kamala Resort deserves 5 stars and more because you get perfect treatment, if you call reception or room service for cleaning, golf shuttle or even order for in room dining it will arrive in an unbelievable speed, and in good quality, they don't make you wait. I am really happy I was lucky to choose this hotel for my honeymoon.

Smelly room, definitely need renovation

The room D1 had very strong smell when I entered. The humidity was very high. The resort was not up to what I expected as 5 stars and top ranking resort in Kamala. The water was brownish from the tap for the bathtub. The water temperature for the shower was very unstable, either very hot or very cold. The cloth rob was broken as you can see in the photo. The safety box didn’t work probably took me long time to re- open it. Won’t come back again.

Beautiful please and super attentive staff's
