“Interesting spot in the hills.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This resort looks like it has had better days. Our unit was 1 bedroom, but was rather spacious with lots of cupboards and storage space. The furniture was a bit dated, and the window shades would not prevent your neighbours from seeing your every move, and there was a lot of windows. The bedroom did have curtains, but did very little to keep the early morning light out! No 'black-out properties what so ever.

The resort pool was adequate, but the gym was small and equipment old, and some thing were broken!

You only get internet connection for two devices, and even then the connection was not brilliant.

Our apartment has a serious ant problem, and insecticide only had a temporary impact in stemming the trails of thousands who wished to share our unit!

We didn't try the bar / restaurant as the offering didn't appear too exciting.

As the resort is built on a very steep hill, our unit which was close to one of the roads up could be noisy with the sound of straining engines (motorbike/vans/lorries)!

There is an excellent (almost hourly) shuttle service in to Kamala & back, and runs from 9am to 11:30pm.

Room Tip: Try and get a unit with proper black-out curtains & away from the road up.

Booked last minute studio apartment on Agoda, delighted to be upgraded to 1 bedroom on arrival. Large lounge,kitchen/dining area, large bedroom and shower room plus adequate sized balcony. Clean and light....maybe too light as no blackout curtains in bedroom and windows all around the living area. Blinds allow people to see in at all hours, however resort is on a hill and not many folk pass by. Parking for car just outside apt was handy for loading and unloading our luggage. Walk into Kamala takes about 20 minutes, return a little longer as very steep access road, but not a problem if you are able bodied. Very frequent free shuttle service available too.
Kitchen has hob, microwave and fridge freezer, we moved micro to top of fridge as door could not open on work surface due to lip of sink. Brilliant single tub washing machine , need a drying rack though, we had to hang clothes on balcony chairs to dry. Unbelievable amount of cupboard and wardrobe space probably a reflection on the fact that some units have long stay or permanent guests/owners.
Small pool but fine, cafe we did not use as so much available down in Kamala. Gym is tiny!
Very peaceful, would stay again if unit can get blackout curtains!
Staff very helpful especially Jeff and Ryan .

Stayed at The Trees for two weeks and found it to be the most relaxing place to get away from it all. We had a one bedroom apartment high up the hill overlooking the valley and the view was the best!!! With glass doors all around you felt as though you were actually living in the jungle. The apartment was very spacious with every amenity. The service was exceptional and the staff went out of their way to help us with information. We used the free tuk tuk most days to get us into the village where there are very nice restaurants and shops. The café by the pool was very nice with excellent food and the staff there were lovely. The pool itself was very good and very quiet when we were there, sometimes having it all to ourselves. Would recommend this complex to anyone and would definitely visit again.

The Trees was a perfect place to stay for our 7 nights in Phuket. The service was exceptional, with nothing too much of a problem to arrange. They arranged day trips for us and gave us other helpful information. We had a wonderful modern room with pool, gym and a small cafe/restaurant on site. It is nestled in amongst the trees, therefore it is very quiet and there is a free shuttle service; which runs to Kamala Beach and back 12 times each day. We used this service most days and went into Kamala Beach for lunch or dinner or both. We also went to Kamala Beach & caught the local bus through to Phuket Town & went further afield from there. Many places to eat at very reasonable prices - will be putting reviews on the places we liked the most.

The Trees Club Resort is one of Phuket Island's hidden jems. Situated in the hills behind the quieter Kamala Beach, it offers a cool escape from the Hustle of the main Phuket attractions. The Club resort offers a free shuttle service 12 times per day to and from Kamala Beach, which gives full access to the delights of the island. Staying in pool side accommodation allows fantastic views, access to the well resourced gym, and opportunities to enjoy a quiet meal at the low key pool side restaurant and bar. The other facilities of tennis & squash courts as well as a full sauna facility make this a perfect get away. The only down side was the limited menu offered by the restaurant. After a week there, I was ready to stay for longer.

Room Tip: Pool Side rooms offer the best views and access to all facilities.

The resort is about 10 minutes out of the main resort of Kamala but the resort runs regular shuttle buses each way so it's not a problem and actually nice to be up in the hills and bit.
The apartments in the resort are very nice, clean and bright.
Didn't use the tennis or squash courts but the pool area was good.
The restaurant on site closes at 8pm so you if you are not in the mood to go out get food before then. We got food and kept it in the fridge in the room and microwaved it when we were ready.
Kamala itself was better the expected, a festival was on in the park with loads of great food and music. Think it happens a couple of times a year so check the local info.

Stayed for two nights, in a 1 bedroom suite. Very modern design, with comfortable amenities, and super clean rooms. Interestingly they have a tennis court, squash court and of course a pool. Was too busy to try these but really wanted to as I dont have access to a tennis court very often! Conveniently they offer both motorcycle and car rentals, I chose one of the larger motorcycles and it was in great condition. Pleasant and helpful staff, a great stay, and my future goto place in Phuket.
