I am currently on a month-long trip with several friends exploring Southeast Asia. We have stayed in small villages and big cities, and we've been in some great places and some not-so-great ones. This was absolutely the worst. First: the units were decent and the grounds and fairly pretty. The pool is nice and the apartments are relatively clean. That... More

We travelled as a family of 5 in June 2016. Hotel was well-kept and clean, with nice rooms. We had a two bedroom suite - ktichen was decently stocked, but just enough for 4 people. The staff were friendly and helped us find transportation to various things we wanted to see, etc.. there is a hotel tuk-tuk that will drive... More

We booked this resort for our anniversary vacation for a week stay and we really enjoyed the ambiance of this resort, quiet, calm and peaceful and the pool (especially the kids pool which our daughter really enjoyed ). Big clean rooms and very friendly, attentive staffs. We also had a free drop and pick up to kamala beach for dinner... More

We have stayed a few times at the Royal Embassy Resort and Spa and loved it! It was like a home from home this beautiful haven in Kamala. However I fear it will change very soon as the owner Phil has since sold the hotel and since the 1st of July it belongs to a hotel group from Bangkok. They... More

A sweet home away from home, that's what I'ld love to call Royal Embassy Resort Phuket. In spite of the bad weather in Phuket this hotel transformed our ordinary holiday into a wonderful one.

The first appearance of the place is a lovely little hotel, however, within the first few minutes, noticed the green on the tiles of the pool which is very off putting, we never went into the pools because of this. The room itself was lovely, ground floor next to the sauna/spa. However the level of service was a joke. The... More

Stayed 4 nights in March but could have stayed longer! Arrived 10pm after a long journey to be greeted by Phil, the owner, who made us feel very welcome. We had a large 1 bed apartment which was very clean and comfortable. Transport is available any time during the day to the beach or it is a 10/15 minutes walk.... More

We stayed for almost two weeks in Jan/Feb 2016, travelling with an 11 month old. We booked due to the consistently good reviews and felt the resort lived up to our expectations.

We stayed at The Royal Embassy and enjoyed its spacious rooms and kitchen. The room could have been a little cleaner and some of the linens had small stains but these were minor issues in the scheme of things. The endearing resort owner Phil could not do enough to accommodate us and gave us some great recommendations about places to... More

I was about to rate this hotel as 5 stars and would write a very good review due to a very good receptionist (a long ginger hair girl), however, as soon as we checked out, the owner manager just ruined everything.
