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. Shutlle service fell well short of the demand and you cannot be guaranteed a seat on thea... More

We stayed here for a week, wasn't happy with our room but the quickly changed us ASAP. It's quite and peaceful away from the town centre however there's a shuttle bus that takes you into town. Rooms are cleaned everyday, the have a good take out services as we'll if you need one. It's a good place/ location if you... More

Hotel in middle of nowhere, with inconvenient shuttle bus times and the tuk tuk mafia prices if you can't use the shuttle. No beach access at all as surrounding landowners have blocked it off. Restaurant choice of meals was 6 different paninis or 3 salads (not what I go to Thailand for) and last orders at 7:30pm. Breakfast choice was... More

Loved this place. The fact that we were upgraded to the Penthouse suite might have influenced how much I enjoyed my stay. ( worthwhile being a member of Classic Escapes) Close to the main action of Patong beach but situated in the quieter suburb Kamala. Perfect for a relaxing time while still enjoying the benefits of the busy shopping and... More

There are no beaches in the walking distance, shuttle bus can take you to the nearest beaches of Kamala and Surin but with odd timing, mostly we had to go or return by tuk tuk. More frequent shuttle service to Patong. Swimming pool was green then we arrived and even then it was cleaned there is too much chloride in... More

What a great place! About a 10 minute or so tuk tuk or shuttle into Patong. Far enough away to be out of the hussle and bussle of town, and was actually really nice to be able to go in and get amongst it, and then have somewhere to retreat back to. No beach access at all, but a great... More

There is no direct beach access at this resort so that might be an issue for some people - it suited me to be beside the pool with the sound of the sea close by! The hotel was a very pleasant place to stay. The shuttle service is good, although being in a group of 6 we often just went... More
