This is a great place to stay when in Kamala. The Palms is located a street with a lot of restaurants and shops, and only a five minute walk from the beach. Despite of the location the hotel is nice and quiet. The apartments are spacious and clean. Comfortable beds. The staff was also really nice and helpful. The only... More

This was the second time I have stayed here, it was as good as the last! Rooms very very spacious and the staff very friendly. This hotel is perfectly positioned in the beautiful beach of kamala. Everything was within walking distance.

We recently stayed with The Palms Kamala where my wife and I celebrated our 60th birthdays. There were 30 family and friends with us and the hotel was perfect, especially the location. We cannot praise the staff there highly enough, they just wanted to help at all times. The families with children loved the pool access from the bottom floor... More

After having 11 nights in this great apartment complex with friendly staff would be hard pressed to stay anywhere else. We were a party of 25 rented out pool rooms and penthouse suite. After some initial confusion on rooms booked , because our party ranged in ages from 5 through to 75 after this was sorted, plain smooth sailing. The... More

The best part of this resort is the pool. But it's location gave us a taste of Thailand that no posh hotel could ever give. Step outside and you are in a friendly street where you can do basic shopping and have tons of really good massages. The hotel is clean and housekeeping cleans the apartment up well. The receptionist... More

I stayed there for three weeks in February 2014. I rented penthouse suite. The rooms are quite big. Little bit worn out already. From the rooftop the view is very good over the buildings to the sea. But daytime rooftop is quite a hot place to be. There is an area with shade though. Pool is long, if you really... More

Many thanks for posting on TripAdvisor, I am glad that you enjoyed your recent stay. Our Breakfast (which is Buffet Style) is now only 200 Thai Baht (around $6), so hopefully no longer expensive. We are also adding an additional 22 car parking spaces for late 2014. Thanks again for taking the time to comment, we look forward to seeing... More

We had a fantastic stay at the palms in kamala for 10 days in june. The beds were the most comfortable we have experienced at any hotel around the world.

The Palms resort was great for my family and myself over the 2 months we rented out. Clean and serviced with modern facilities. We got a deal at THB45K per month which was somehow reasonable. One of the swimming pool is very long and shadowed part of the day while the second one provides a full exposure to the sun.... More

Apartment 777 was fantastic. It's quiet, as it's on the end of the block, and it has it's own rooftop jacuzzi. The apartment is clean and modern. Walk out of The Palms, and you have a bustling street with shops, coffee places, restaurants. The beach is over one more street, so very close to walk to. We didn't find the... More
