This place is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, pharmacies, markets, etc. There's a scooter rental at the hotel. We heard you could get nicer accommodation nearby for the same price, and the place apparently has come under new management. We were one of only three other occupied rooms at the time, so it was very quiet. The staff...

We stayed here for a week and literally had the whole place to ourselves. The hotel is currently changing names (Pela) and ownership and will soon be very busy. We had a villa, just like our own little house by the pool. Spotlessly clean and well equipped although the resort as a whole does need a little TLC to get...

We were staying in a condo across the street from the Royal Embassy Resort & Spa and wandered in for breakfast 3 days in a row, also picking up take-away for the kids sleeping in. They had a variety of breakfasts--Thai, American and English, and numerous lite options. The lattes were of inconsistent quality, depending on who made them. When...

We stayed here for 11 nights from 3rd October to 14th October. Our time here was very pleasant from the moment we arrived to the time we left. I cannot remember the managers name but he treated all of us with great courtesy and as if we were a part of his family. The price of the accomodation was also...

Kamala is one of the more quit places on the Phuket island not far from Patong with its noise and crowds of partying people. Kamala has no nightclubs but instead nice restaurants and a welcoming beach. If you then make your choice for Royal Embassy Resort and Spa as your accommodation, you have found a well-maintained, small, boutique hotel with...

The resort and apartment (we had a 2 bedroom apartment) were excellent. The resort is clean and relatively quiet (we were there in July/ August end rain season) and has very nice staff. We enjoyed our stay very much!

I am currently on a month-long trip with several friends exploring Southeast Asia. We have stayed in small villages and big cities, and we've been in some great places and some not-so-great ones. This was absolutely the worst. First: the units were decent and the grounds and fairly pretty. The pool is nice and the apartments are relatively clean. That...

We travelled as a family of 5 in June 2016. Hotel was well-kept and clean, with nice rooms. We had a two bedroom suite - ktichen was decently stocked, but just enough for 4 people. The staff were friendly and helped us find transportation to various things we wanted to see, etc.. there is a hotel tuk-tuk that will drive...

We booked this resort for our anniversary vacation for a week stay and we really enjoyed the ambiance of this resort, quiet, calm and peaceful and the pool (especially the kids pool which our daughter really enjoyed ). Big clean rooms and very friendly, attentive staffs. We also had a free drop and pick up to kamala beach for dinner...

We have stayed a few times at the Royal Embassy Resort and Spa and loved it! It was like a home from home this beautiful haven in Kamala. However I fear it will change very soon as the owner Phil has since sold the hotel and since the 1st of July it belongs to a hotel group from Bangkok. They...
