We had the most relaxing stay at Ayara Kamala. The service was amazing, our wedding guests were so impressed with the hospitality and we had the best support to plan our special day. The team went above and beyond to make our dream wedding come true. We can't thank them enough for all the care, attention to detail and kindness...

Had an amazing time at the Ayara. Stayed in the top floor of building 5, in room of 501. The room included a private pool, a view over the infinity pool and even private transportation to the resaurant in the morning. It was a great experience. The staff was very friendly, and even managed to purchase a few small items...

We caught a taxi to the resort from Phuket airport for THB 700 and it took 50 minutes. The hotel car costs THB 1200 and going back we were told we had to use this. When we arrived, the room we booked wasn't available but they gave us a larger one, but one without it's own private pool - many...

The resort is on the hillside overlooking the ocean offering spectacular views. We splurged for grand pool Villa with a substantial private infinity plunge pool. The resort itself is tucked far away from the attractions and city, so car rental is recommended. Food is above average, but fairly typical of hotels at this class level. Free Wi-Fi is speedy for...

The resort is amazing! The service is really good and the personnel is very friendly always with smile. The hotel even has a private beach which you can go down by walk. The breakfast quality and variety are also very very good. We ordered transfer from hotel to airport. The driver Tum was very helpful and friendly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 V, 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. His Swiss educated daughter, Masha, blends her Thai service foundations with some of the Swiss touches she picked up studying abroad to deliver a unique and harmonious style service culture. 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. We’ve got the gym, the spa and a private rustic beach, everything you need to feel comfortable. So, 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 noble ‘Kamalians’ strive to make sure you obtain that unique warmth in this promontory paradise. ... more   less
