“Top class hotel”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Stayed here for a week late March/early April. Nice comfortable, well appointed and clean roms, serviced daily. Clean pool with a pool bar. Friendly and helpful staf and management. Couldn't find fault with any aspect of our stay. Located on a busy road choc full of bars and restaurants and an easy 15 minute walk to an exciting beach and beachside cafes and bars and shops. Kamala Tropical Garden is located close to Phantasea and also the open night markets. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommended this place to anyone, solo, couple or family, it's ideal.

Room Tip: All the rooms open to the pool and are all quiet with no traffic noise.

From all of us at KTG a big thanks for your great review,we are glad you enjoyed your stay both with us and in Phuket/Kamala. Kamala is a great place to base yourself when visiting Phuket, just 15-20 mins from Patong if you want the crazy nightlife it has to offer yet far enough away for some peace and quiet. Great beach (in my opinion one of the best on the island) nice relaxed atmosphere with everything you need to make a great holiday including our unique restaurant "TAOSHA". Look out for the BLUE LIGHT TREES on the main road KAMALA.

Started our holiday at KTG, stayed 5 nights. Hotel arranged airport pick up for us. Rooms were large, bright and comfortable. We got an upgrade to the spa suite which was lovely. Hotel is on a busy road but rooms are set back so you don't hear any noise. Lovely having a pool to relax round after our flight from UK. Hotel is well run, thank you Jim, Jedda and staff.

I absolutely loved this place and I can not fault it in any way. Like previous reviews, KTG is like an Oasis of beauty in a busy part of Kamala Beach, set back from a noisey and very busy main road.
The Hotel consists of 16 beautifully but simply furnished bungalows set round a stunning pool and lovely well kept gardens, each bungalow having a pool view. The rooms are cleaned daily and are left spotlessly clean and smelling lovely by the cleaning girls. They all have fridges, LCD TV's, free safes, toiletries, mini bars, towels changed every 3 days, pool towels available at reception.All have a patio and lighting to sit out at night with 2 chairs and a table.

All the staff were just brilliant and geniuinely can not do enough for you. This creates a really informal, friendly and relaxed atmosphere about the place which for me made it an exceptional Hotel.

The restaurant is large and airy and the food is great and good value for money. A number of themed nights are held and all of them were great.

kamala is a busy resort and the main road is not for the faint hearted!! The beach, although extremely busy during high season when I visited is a fantastic beach with almost white sand and clear blue sea. It s backed by numerous bars, restaurants and shops and again has a relaxed and informal feel about it. The beach is an easy 5/10 min walk from KTG

The hotel will arrange a taxi to pick you up from the airport for 1000 Baht ( approx £20) which I found a great help after a long flight. The journey by taxi apporox 40 mins.

I can not recomend this Hotel highly enough and I was actually gutted to be leaving ( I have never been any where before where 2 weeks wasn't enough) and I can not wait to return.

Thanks to Jim, jedda ( hope i've spelt it right) the aptly named Joy who is just too lovely to describe and all the staff for their efforts in making my holiday one of my best ever and one that has certainly ensured that I will return again. Love and best wishes to you all and good luck to Jedda x

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally as attractive and well presented.

Kamala Tropical Garden is, as the name implies, something of a tropical paradise. Although the entrance is on the main road, once inside you would not be aware of this, and the bedrooms are quiet. On the subject of the bedrooms, every detail has been thought of - especially in terms of colour and layout. Mine even had a jacuzzi! The pool is nice but for me the coup de grace had to be the restaurant. No need to leave the premises if you're looking for international haute cuisine. I particularly enjoyed the grain-fed steak and lamb shank.

I travelled thru Asia for a month in November and December and this was the best of many good hotels I stayed at. The room was great, the location perfect, and everyone working at the hotel was wonderful. The hotel is just off the main road but the rooms are very quiet as they are behind the restaurant complex. The beautiful pool area is like an oasis in the middle of town. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and there are many bars and restaurants nearby. In the evening I usually had a beer at the Aussie Bar a block away before moving onto the Kamala beer garden across the street. I always ended up back at the hotel (sometimes just to drink juice!) as everyone was so friendly. Joy, the bartender, was an entertaining source of information and Jim, the owner, was always around and interesting to talk to. All of the workers were friendly and went out of there way to help me so after 5 days I was disappointed to leave as it felt like home. The room was a good size, very clean, had a fairly large fridge, and the bed was comfortable, which is important to me. The price was a bargain for what I got and I will return for a longer stay.
What I most liked about Kamala Beach, besides the hotel, was the beach itself. Despite my tripadvisor name I have been more interested in beaches in the last 10 years and this one of the best I have been on. It was long and easy to walk on and at the end of the beach, past all the beach chairs, there are 3 simple bars. I always stopped at the first one just past the Novatel. Quiet, great view, good place to swim, and cold beer - paradise!

We stayed here after reading all the good reviews and were NOT disappointed at all. The staff is absolutely lovely. Check in was quickly done so that I could get to my room fast and get the family holiday started. We met Jim the first night and felt really at home after that. He was always around the property and frequently checked in on the guests.
I love the location. Not too close to Patong but not too far.
My next stay will definitely be here.
Restaurant is great. The all you can eat Mexican buffet was absolutely delicious.
Highly recommend for families with young children (very quiet) and families with teenagers (10 minutes to Patong). All rooms have access to the pool.
