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.

Response from Masha S, Manager at Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa
Responded yesterday
Dear Khun Bindleys, Warmest greetings from Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa! Thank you for your feedback on your stay here and for choosing to stay with us. It was wonderful to have accommodated you, and we are so glad to hear you enjoyed the hospitality, and the food here as well as the facilities. Regarding the bath robes, the only reason we would take them away is when it is used and needs to be cleaned, we do not take them away before check out to avoid guests taking them, as we also we have new robes available at the gift shop if guests would like to purchase them. I am sorry should there be a discrepancy, but nevertheless we are happy you had a wonderful time, we will continue to train our staff to ensure a high quality of service we prioritise on. We wish you the very best back home and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you here again soon! Warmest regards from all of us here, Ayara Kamala Resort & Spa Team

New Year’s Eve gala dinner any good ? Thank you
No. The hotel provides a free shuttle only to nearby Kamala beach. To get from the hotel to Patong beach will cost you, for a taxi, probably near $25 or $30 USD.
