“A wonderful stay in a beautifully positioned property”

Before we arrived at Kamala I just knew we were going to love The Palms. Our interaction with the owner, Tony, had been seamless and he was very helpful throughout the booking process.
The Palms is very centrally located in Kamala Beach, yet once inside the property, it felt very private. The staff were very helpful and friendly, yet largely unseen. My only negative comment about the property would be that the exterior felt a little neglected, with lots of weeds in the garden, the pool bar all but abandoned and some of the outdoor furniture broken.
The unit itself we perfect for my family of four. The children's bedroom has three good beds and being positioned at the quieter front of the apartment, it was dark and quiet (no early morning wake ups!).
The boys loved the swim up terrace, it was the highlight of their trip, and it was great for us parents too as were able to duck inside for a few minutes if needed and not have to get them out of the pool.
The apartment was clean, with a good selection of crockery and cutlery. The washing machine was fantastic and I will definitely be getting a Siemens next time we buy one for home!
We all loved Kamala Beach as it is quiet, yet with a good selection of bars and restaurants. The beach was beautiful, although the waves were perhaps a bit strong for really small children.
Thank you, Tony, and The Palms staff, for a great holiday.

Thank you for your comments. We have spoken with the management of The Palms with regards to the exterior and they have taken action with the exterior, replacing furniture, carrying out maintenance and changing the usage of the pool bar.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay.You can get some reasonable waves in Kamala bay at times outside of the high season, but this isn't a daily occurance in fact during my present stay in Kamala in August the sea is as calm as the November to March period.

“Great place in the heart of Kamala”
Reviewed April 1, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We ( family of 5..2 kids 9 and 12 plus nanna) stayed at the Palms in Kamala for 12 nights in March. We loved it, the resort is in the heart of Kamala, with everything you need at your fingertips. The Beach is a 3 minute walk and great restraunts just outside your door...
The appartment itself was great, everything was as advertised, pool at the door and nice cold aircon to come home to when the Phuket heat gets too much.
The room service was fantastic, with meals arriving hot to your door presented beautifully on white plates (i expected takeaway containers) The staff were fantastic, we even hired a babysitter one night and I had no idea that maid service was included in the price...there was always water in the fridge after the room was cleaned...all these details made it a great relaxing holiday. The kids never had a shortage of other children to play with in the pool, without soo many kids you were overrun. i only have great things to say and would reccomend this appartment in a heartbeat....i actually wish i was still there :(
My only suggestion is that the bathrooms need oil diffusers or similar as sometimes the plumbing seemed to smell a bit.









great

“Great, quiet location and amazing pool for laps”
Reviewed February 6, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Myself and a friend spent 3 nights in this lovely apartment and were both extremely impressed! Ample living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a well-equipped kitchen, AC, and a swimming pool off of the back porch! These were the first 3 nights of my 3 week trip, and a fabulous place to arrive and reset. I swam laps every day in the LONG pool (must be at least 40 meters), had a lovely breakfast at the restaurant, enjoyed the great service, and enjoyed some cheap evening cocktails there as well. The wifi in the room was free and worked perfectly for the both of us. My friend also had a great workout in the gym. I would definitely return!

The beautiful long Kamala beach is only a couple mins away by foot, so the location of the Palms is great, and nicely set off of the road so it's quiet and peaceful at night.
