After searching for a cooking school and finding most to have either mixed reviews or to be extremely expensive we decided on the class taught at the Ayara Kamala as it was well priced and although it only had a few reviews, they were good. We were able to choose the 4 dishes we wanted to cook before the class...

Well I am sorry but this review is blunt. The staff were very helpful and organised a meal for 4 of us as we had arrived 10 minutes after last orders for the night, even though it did take several phone calls to make this happen. The rice was beautiful and certainly welcomed. Traveling as a family group of 4...

We stayed from 7DEC-12DEC14 and received "five star" treatment from the staff. The room was well maintained. Free breakfast was great and had a lot of variety to it. I suggest the seafood platter for two, if you plan to dine at the resort. The only down side was the resort's beach could have been cleaned up a bit. I...

I state the following fact: a hotel is always good when they make the bed, smile and give you coffee. But in this hotel I truly realised what a great service should be. My wife forgot her sun glasses and they delivered it to us, immediately, at no cost, to Europe. That my friend, is great service.

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
