Stayed in a lovely ground floor corner condominium with direct access to the swimming pool. Very good service and a free shuttle service to Patong. Nice and quiet and restful. Located just off the beach between Patong and Kamala in a peaceful setting.

We have just spent a week at Absolute Nakalay beach resort with our friends who are just completing a time-share agreement with the resort. First impression of the standard of the room was "impressive" but that's about where it ended. After a few days I had rapidly come to the view that I was not a great fan of this... More

Service ... the staff are so unhappy about being sacked and the Sea Pearl staff coming in to take their jobs that they do nothing, no umbrellas up around the pool, no one asking if they could get you a drink around the pool. Staff disappear into staff room and can't be found. Happy hour ..... same cocktail of the... More

The Nakalay is advertised as a Boutique Hotel; I personally think that its just a small hotel which is out of the way on a very busy noisy road. The beds are very hard however we were given an option after the 3rd night to have a comforter placed on top (which would have been awesome from night 1) which... More

Stayed for 2 nights here after we decided to move from Patong to somewhere a little more quiet. Was recommended to us by the staff at the sister resort Absolute Sea Pearl. Spent all day relaxing by the pool and it was just what we needed peaceful and tranquil. Staff where attentive and the thai food by the pool was... More

Nakalay is a very quiet, modern and clean, small resort. Perfect for relaxing. The resort offers a shuttle service if you can organise yourself around this, otherwise the security guard is happy to flag down a tuk tuk on busy road. The restaurant/pool bar is very limited with their choices and we found them to have run out of products... More

Absolute have done a lovely job on this resort with beautifully appointed ultra modern decor and facilities. The full kitchen is a bonus as the restaurant has limited menu and hours and Patong is a 15 min shuttle bus trip away. The pool was clean and relaxing without being crowded. - There are however a couple of restaurant / bars... More

Nakalay not ideal situated. Next to noisy road. Very hard bed. TV and safe did not work in apartment. Softer bed option was availible according to reception, only after we complained, as it was not offered to us during check in as well.
