Sleep, eat, indulge, explore and rejuvenate at our homely resort in our naturally private setting, along millionaire’s mile located south west of the treasured island of Phuket. Through using the traditional and authentic craftsmanship of Khun Veerasak, this wonderful promontory paradise has been converted into a magnificent hotel consisting of 42 rooms and villas sprawling the hillside down to the private rustic beach. All the rooms and villas are designed with the concept of ‘Ayara’, corresponding with the nature of ‘elephants’ that are gentle and kind and of course, need their space to rest. They are decorated contemporarily and traditionally, from stylish black tiles to luxuriously marbled bathroom floors, to wooden and earthly tones. Our restaurant maintains quality local ingredients with delightful homemade recipes as well as including a few of the normal favorites from around Thailand and the rest of the world. Whether young and fresh or mature and experienced, Ayara Kamala provides you with our local founded atmosphere whilst our international touches amaze and surprise combining on a personal level a unique harmony, nowhere else found. Our team strive to make sure you obtain that unique warmth in this west coast paradise.

It is a nice boutique hotel at Kalama beach, Phuket with a beautiful sunset view in Phuket. We spent 2 nights in the romantic deluxe pool access room. We felt relaxed when we entered the room with a good aroma smell of our selected aroma choice. So, we felt Thai by Thai aroma and Thai interior. Welcome drink and local fruit were superb. The best ever was the experience of swimming in the infinity pool and seeing the sunset. We ordered food in room service and dined at the restaurant and they were tasty. The staffs were nice and very helpful, especially a warm welcome from the manager Khun.Kai.

Super friendly staff, rooms were delightful and if I had a problem, it was fixed efficiently. The room with the swimming pool was awesome <3 The nature and the atmosphere near the nature with all the birds, salamanders and frogs made me feel that "damn' I really I am far away from home"

My and my husband spent 4 days at the Kamala beach resort for our honeymoon and it was a great pleasure!! The staff there are so nice (especially Tam). Food is great. Everything is super clean and the facilities such as pool and tennis court are fantastic. We even came back to this hotel for 3 more days after we had been visited the other island. I so much recommend this hotel!! Very private and very personal. The location is on a mountain therefore, each time you need to take a shuttle bus to go down to the beach but there are shuttles and it’s definitely worth it !!

We stayed at Ayara Kamala for 5 days in April and oh boy did we enjoy our stay. Our room was the Grand Thai with Natural Ocean View and Spa Bath, which was super spacious and had an incredible view. As the hotel is undergoing some renovations (including the main pool), we had a chance to enjoy during daytime one of the villas (absolutely lovely) and the pool front rooms (super nice). The food at the Cradle is delicious. We also had some massages at the SPA and it were some of the best we ever had, amazing. There is a shuttle to Kamala beach a few times a day, which is a nice add. Overall, this is a great hotel with an unbelievably nice service, super sweet staff. A must return when in Phuket.

It’s my second time visiting Phuket, but my first with a child . I choose Ayara Resort and spa because I wanted to stay at Kamala . I made the reservation directly through the hotel website , paid via pay pal . I hope in the future the payment will be with credit cards . I’ve been contacting the hotel by email , and they were really helpful answering all my inquiries, specially with the new covid regulations. We booked the Grand Pool Villa & it was the perfect choice for us . The Villa was outstanding, clean and the pool was beyond amazing. Talking about the staff , I would like to thank each one of them for their wonderful hospitality. They were really friendly with my child . I tried the spa and it was perfect too . The only thing that i hope that they will improve, is the Resturant area , it’s a little bit outdated & the buffet needs to get better. Otherwise, we had the perfect stay and amazing Vacation Phuket never disappointed me .

What we loved.. The views bump the score up for Ayara. Stunning views from our pool villa overlooking the Andaman Sea (what an incredible sunset). The location is great (far away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket - albeit it would be a challenge to get around without your own transport). The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Fantastic spa. The breakfast was very good (the pancakes are some of the best we've had). But.. The hotel is dated / in need of TLC. The main pool area needs work and all over the hotel you start to notice cosmetic issues. The villa was fine, but not what we would call premium. We weren't impressed with the food (excluding the breakfasts). Strange how a place can deliver exceptional breakfasts but be below par for lunch and dinner. Overall a nice stay, but room for improvement we think

It’s a bit aged but we had a very good deal, food is great, Spa fantastic and the stuff is lovely. They offer 3 free transfers each day to Kamala and the Messenger service is instant. The beach is not usable. To rocky / dangerous. And you need to be fit to master the stairs.

Dear Khun CarloMatic, Warmest greetings from Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for staying with us, and for writing us a review! We are delighted to hear you had a positive experience. Unfortunately, access to our rustic beach is seasonal, depending on the sea level that varies throughout the year. We do have a lift to the beach, for guests who do not wish to use the stairs, however, at the moment it is monsoon season, and access is limited due to safety concerns. We wish you all the best and hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back with us again. Warmest regards from all of us, Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa
