I stayed here during my last night in Thailand and was completely blown away. The hotel is located in remote hillside area overlooking the ocean. The views are breathtaking. The hotel property is absolutely gorgeous. Everywhere you turn are fresh fragrant flowers growing and lots jungleish scenery. This was by far the nicest place I stayed in Thailand. As others... More

The place is built for relaxation. Great spa, rooms are clean and well kept, the kitchen really knows how to prepare great thai dishes and the staff is polite and interested in accommodating their guests in the best way possible. Short taxi ride into Kamala for a break form the spa/tanning lifestyle.

My boyfriend and I had originally booked the deluxe ocean view room. But the so-called "seaview" was observable only if you stood on top of the bed! The trees blocked almost 90% of the view from the balcony. Disappointed, we rang up the front desk and Sebastian, the operations manager immediately attended to our needs. Initially he showed us a...

Stayed 5 nights on last leg of SE Asia Tour. Hotel located at the end of 'millionaires mile' as locally known due the amount of luxury condos and 5 star resorts all located.

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
