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.

Can not fault this hotel! We had a wonderful stay here, the views over the sea are breath taking and the rooms were spacious and clean.

Breakfast has alot of variety and was always very tasty.
What makes this hotel even better is the staff. They are so friendly and really can not do enough for you. They are a credit.

We would certainly return to this hotel and would recommend. Stay here.

We stayed for 5 nights and booked the honeymoon package on the hotel’s website, a really good deal. It includes round trip transfer from airport, couples spa, evening high tea, and a guaranteed room upgrade (amazing views). Mr. Park greeted us from the airport, and he was very nice and informative. The reception ladies were always very helpful and friendly. We had problems with our island tours, and they were very willing to help us out. The breakfast at the hotel is very good. They have a variety of food to choose from, all very delicious! We had both lunch and dinner at the hotel. Price were more on the pricey side. Nevertheless, the food served were delicious and well presented. Thanks to Mr. Kit for his great service every morning and afternoon, and the rest of the team for our comfortable stay. We will definitely be back.

I was lucky to organize a big group stay at Ayara Kamala at the beninning of April. That was a private VIP business group with high requirements. Nevertheless, the staff of Ayara Resort done their work on the top luxury level! Each of my guest was satisfied with fine food and luxury service. The views from the Villas, restaurant and pool really was breathtaking! Due to the location of the hotel (on the hill at Kamala), the guests of resort enjoy amazing sunsets every evening and the quiete comfortable stay (there is no loud music from beach markets or bars as you can see at Patong). At the same time, every guest can easily get to Kamala in less then 5 mins by the hotels taxi that you can always find at reception.
The special THANKS to all the management of Ayara Resort and especially to K Masha, who organized our stay during April! Thank you so much for your hardworking and attention to the needs of my group. Every our need was treated carefully and satisfied immediately. My guests really filled the individual approach to each of them and were so happy by such a great service!
We held 3 private parties at Ayara Resort during our stay. The preparation and the organization of our parties - everything was really great! The staff of the hotel paid attention to every detail (tables, decorations, stage, light, sound, dishes, drinks, banners etc.) so that our parties were held on the top level. All of my VIP guests were happy to stay at Ayara and spend 5-8 days at the resort. Bartenders, waiters, cooks, receptionists, managers, house-keeping - many thanks to ALL staff of Ayara Kamala!
I can highly recommend this hotel for the group trips, business, MICE and VIP travelers! This is the best place for such rest:)
