Why chris bouvresse chose Kamala
Phuket is one of the top vacation spots in Asia and boasts a modern infrastructure, world class health care, excellent shopping, five golf resorts as well as the fabulous beaches and aquatic activities it is famous for. In recent years the Island has become a dream holiday destination and a favourite place to rent a villa. After all, why stay in a hotel when you can have the freedom, privacy and cost effectiveness of your own home away from home? This spacious holiday villa is located in Surin, a private and peaceful coastal village set in beautiful and relaxed surroundings just off Phuket’s main west coast road, some 15 km north of the crowded, busy resort area of Patong. As the most exclusive part of the Island, Surin is also home to the world famous resorts of Amanpuri and Twin Palms. The villa is a short stroll from the beautiful Surin and Bang Tao beaches, famous for their white sands, clear blue seas, water sport activities and amazing sunsets. Nearby are gourmet restaurants, boutiques, winebars and gallerias. With forested Cherng Talay hills in the background, the area is set around a natural, spring-fed lake. It is just 10 minutes by car to the Laguna area and its acclaimed resorts, spas, horse riding and golf course on 600 acres of landscaped ground. And Just 20 minutes away is the international airport where it is only a short flight to or from Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong.

A nice place to relax
We had a great experience. The house was spacious with lots of terrace space. The neighborhood was about 5 minute walk from the main road and 15 minute walk to the beach. We enjoyed having several small restaurants, a gym and a few local massage shops nearby. The best part of staying here was Gob. She is the caretaker of the property. She did a great job at keeping the house clean and organized, she was an outstanding cook and we appreciated her help with laundry. Because of her, we were all able to relax and enjoy our time at the house. We all agree (9 people), that we would stay here again.
Good family stay
I’ll start with the great bits, the villa has a wonderful communal balcony which we really enjoyed and the two ladies who looked after us were fantastic and served up some of the best food we had on the trip. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is because there was a strong smell of damp in all the bedrooms (possibly only an issue in the rainy season) and a drainage smell in a couple of the bathrooms. Overall the villa was a little tired looking. Worth also knowing that because the pool is covered it does not get warmed up by the sun and our children found it too cold. That said, I’d still say it was good value for money and what we saved on the villa we spent in Cafe del Mar Kamala which is heavenly. (Surin beach is quite dirty and has no developments so while the closest, is not worth heading to)
Thank you for this review.
Just to clarify that the damp smell (as explained) is not something we have experienced in the past but most probably due to the timing of your arrival, the rainy season has just stopped and our House manager was away for a couple of weeks prior to your arrival and we believe that a lack of ventilationit was the reason for it. After investigating the matter I am happy to say that all damp/drainage smell have now disappear! Our apologies for the inconveniences.
The pool is covered but open on sides and again October not being a hot month in Thailand it is normal to find it a bit fresh...Trust us this pool is heaven on high season!
The villa has just been fully renovated last week and is now open for many new arrival in this busy season!
We thank you again for your stay and comments.
Top villa, top house manager, top food and the best location
Jättefint hus som överenstämmer jättebra med beskrivningen.
