Ayara Kamala is up on the hill, more for honeymoon. Relaxing and superb view. Further from town causes the expenses (transport and food) to be higher, but worth it if you are going for privacy. The food in the restaurant is delicious, the service staff were all very friendly and automatic, you don't even need to ask for towel for... More

In early July this year my wife and I had a short holiday in Phuket. We spent 3 nights at the Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa and we enjoyed our stay there very much.

We stayed in the upper room of one of the villas-- I really recommend it, since the view is FREAKING BEAUTIFUL! We went during low season but even then there's a teal beauty to the sea. The infinity pool on the balcony sprinkles droplets of water at you, adding to the sea spray. Although the rooms were a little dim,... More

My friends and I stayed at the Grand Pool Villa for two nights around mid-June.

Great hotel, fantastic service! The pool and breakfast is displayed spectacularly with a view of the ocean. However if one fancies a walk down to the beach directly from the hotel, this would not be be the ideal place to live in as you would have to take a shuttle to kamala beach itself. Other downsides would include the lack... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sleep, eat, indulge, explore and rejuvenate at our homely resort in our naturally private setting, along millionaire’s mile located south west of the treasured island of Phuket. Through using the traditional and authentic craftsmanship of Khun V, this wonderful promontory paradise has been converted into a magnificent hotel consisting of 42 rooms and villas sprawling the hillside down to the private rustic beach. His Swiss educated daughter, Masha, blends her Thai service foundations with some of the Swiss touches she picked up studying abroad to deliver a unique and harmonious style service culture. All the rooms and villas are designed with the concept of ‘Ayara’, corresponding with the nature of ‘elephants’ that are gentle and kind and of course, need their space to rest. They are decorated contemporarily and traditionally, from stylish black tiles to luxuriously marbled bathroom floors, to wooden and earthly tones. Our restaurant maintains quality local ingredients with delightful homemade recipes as well as including a few of the normal favorites from around Thailand and the rest of the world. We’ve got the gym, the spa and a private rustic beach, everything you need to feel comfortable. So, whether young and fresh or mature and experienced, Ayara Kamala provides you with our local founded atmosphere whilst our international touches amaze and surprise combining on a personal level a unique harmony, nowhere else found.Our noble ‘Kamalians’ strive to make sure you obtain that unique warmth in this promontory paradise. ... more   less
