    A room with a view.

    by

    We stayed at Kamala Dreams for 3 nights but wished that we could have stayed longer. After a little research before booking we reserved room 201 which costs slightly more than the standard rooms but is worth every penny as it is the biggest and has a wrap around balcony. This gives you the choice of looking over the pool or having an amazing sea view from the more secluded side of the balcony.

    The studio style room is very spacious and equipped with king sized bed, TV, DVD, air con and a kitchenette with a full size fridge. The only thing that we didn't have was a kettle to be able to make our own tea & coffee. Not a big problem anyway. More importantly, everything was spotlessly clean and the daily maid service was very efficient. The bathroom was a little basic but served the purpose and was clean. Some previous reviews have mentioned a problem with the drainage but we didn't experience this although there was a very occasional waft of "eau de drain". Not a problem though.

    On arrival we were met by smiling staff who offered us a cool drink on the house while they insisted on taking our luggage up to our room. The breakfast that was included in the room rate consisted of a choice of various juices, tea or coffee followed by a small selection of hot or cold food. Not exactly a full english but more than adequate. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and had a lovely meal while watching a torrential downpour. My Wife ordered a fish dish while I went for the red chicken curry. Both were substantial and delicious.

    Kamala suited us fine as it is a pleasant, fairly quiet place but still has enough to see and do. We found Patong to be like a cross between Blackpool & Benidorm and far too busy for our liking. Each to their own I guess. Kamala Dreams is situated right next to the south end of the beach and also gives easy access to a number of bars and restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance. The beach is about a mile long and lined with beach-type bars which also serve cheap and delicious food. We enjoyed swimming in the sea which was nice and warm and had waves which were big enough to be interesting without being dangerous.

    We would love to go back to Phuket and I wouldn't hesitate to return to room 201 at Kamala Dreams.

    Directions: 10 yards from the south end of the beach.

More about Kamala Dreams

3 nights in Phuket, 2010.

"Kamala Bay"

We stayed in Kamala Bay for 3 nights to break the journey from the U.K. to New Zealand and wished that we could have stayed longer. This is a good place for a relaxing break and away from the madness of Patong. The long sandy beach is ideal for walking along before stopping at one of the many beach bars for a drink or some lunch. There were enough restaurants to choose from and enough to keep us busy.

"Kamala Dreams"

Our room at Kamala Dreams had a superb view of the beach and the fishing boats from the wrap round balcony which also looks over the pool. We could actually lie in bed and watch the fishermen arriving in the morning to get their boats ready.

"Things to do and see"

There are plenty of things to see and do apart from just lazing on the beach. We hired a private driver for the day and visited some of the sights.

Phuket Island, kamala beach

"Kamala Beach"

Kamala is a few K north of the very congested Patong Beach area and presents a quieter town with a great beach and some nice lodging available. at the high end see Layalina Hotel or Kamala Dreams for a few less bhat and for budget see the Benjamin Hotel. Kamala Beach Resort is in the background of the photo. You can rent automatic transmission motorbikes locally for 200 bhat/day or less. try the banana pancakes from the local beach vendor.

Any thoughts on Kamala bay - prices of wine in Phuket.

by Tricky_Dicky69

Hi, has anyone got any thoughts or opinions on Kamala Bay. We are going to be in Phuket for 3 nights in November on the way to N.Z. and haven't decided where to stay et. We are considering staying at Kamala Dreams in Kamala Bay as it looks to be relaxed and much quieter than Patong. Also I have heard that wine is expensive in Phuket. Can anyone tell me what the average price would be at a restaurant or a shop.
Any thoughts , opinions or comments would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Tricky Dicky

500 baht in a supermarket. Starting at 900-1,000 in a restaurant, far very average wine.

IIRC Thais put a massive amount of import duty on wine (300% I think) so even the gut rot stuff becomes expensive. Also I do not think some places understand wine and how it should be looked after so as much as I love wines when in Thailand I stick to beer.

That's why it is best to buy the stuff that somehow manages to evade import tax.
