“Good, inexpensive accommodation in Kamala, Phuket”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We spent 4 days in this resort in Phuket. The area of Kamala is ideal for a relaxing time either by families or couples that want to enjoy Phuket without being in the centre of Patong. The accommodation we had were the studios at the front of the resort which only costs $38 AUD per night. They also have apartments of 2 and 3 bedrooms. The accommodation was basic: the room and bathroom. The room is air conditioned with TV and a small fridge. It has a safe too. The complex has 2 swimming pools and a gym as well. The rooms are clean and spacious. We only had breakfast once in the resort as there are lots of places to eat in the area. There are restaurants nearby and a supermarket as well as 7/11 at the end of the road. The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the resort but they also offer a drop off and pick up service to the beach.

Great value for money.
Decent resort with modern & clean rooms.
Quiet location, away from traffic.
Great pools & gym.
Visitor friendly with no 'joining fee', so bring along as many friends as you like.
Great little town, away from hustle & bustle of Patong.
Clean beaches with decent food & drinks
Close to all Kamala has to offer.

We rented one 3-bedroom penthouse and one regular 3-bedroom condo. We had other friends rent out three other units during the Xmas holiday as well. We thought the value of the rentals was exceptional. We stayed during the peak season between xmas and New Years and I don't think any place offers as much as this place does at the price they offer (we booked via Agoda). During the low-season there may be better options available but during peak season I'm pretty confident that you dont' get much more for your money than this.

We would have liked to have had a few things provided, such as instructions on how to use the washing machine, a coffee maker and perhaps a wider selection of flatware and cutlery.

We liked the main pool but didn't use the rooftop pool very much. There wasn't enough furniture on the pool penthouse level to accommodate more than 2 people seated. I'm sure the different units are furnished differently so it is the luck of the draw.

I would stay here again if I was travelling with a group during the peak season.

I rated the 'location' as very good but that is because we had motorbikes and cars. There is a shuttle to Kamala beach but it is an easy walk (perhaps 15 minutes at a decent pace) and it is dead flat. There are lots of restaurants and bars within a 5-minute walk and the nightlife of Patong isn't far away for the odd night out.

The place is located in the middle of nowhere but might be okay for those looking for a condo experience. However, many of the units have a problem with mold. They had started cleaning a place for us which had mold on the furniture, ceiling and growing on the walls. They moved us, thankfully, to a much nicer unit. Overall the units are quite nice but I think the quality varies from unit to unit. It looks like the place is quite new but not very well managed.

Do not stay here if you are looking for a proper hotel experience. The small restaurant is horrible and you would need to either cook yourself or travel a bit to find alternatives. There is very little to do without traveling.

I loved the place it's very nice & the staff were friendly
Prices are affordable, there is a 7 eleven market nearby. But the place is somehow far away from the beach 20 minutes of walking & the condo is full of Mosquitos we were counting the days to check out coz of we were full of bites. No good restaurants are nearby. Plus no water heater.

Stayed here with family Dec 2011 for new year. Booked 3 bedroomed penthouse apartment. Private rooftop sundeck with plunge pool seating and steam room. A short walk to local shops and about 15 minutes to Kamala beach. Not a bad stay, but as many of these units are privately owned the internal decoration and facilities could differ. If you have particular requirements best to check if available before booking. Cleaning staff and reception all friendly. Kamala Regent is worth considering if you want more personal space than a hotel can offer.

3bedroom condo with roof top pool. Chlorine is very strong in their pool. I wonder how many times they clean it in a year. Location is far from beach. Car rental is recommended. Most of the power point is not working. Toilet is stuck. Rain shower pressure is not strong. Most important thing is their bed is 'SUPER HARD'. I've book my stay with them for 3 nights, check-out after my 1st night. No refund will be given back if u have already paid full amount. I would not recommend this condo for anyone. There's is so much resort or hotel which is way much better than this condo.
