We booked this hotel from Bangkok Airport on our way to Phuket. We were trying to find a place from all the hustle and bustle of Patong. After research on the web and on tripadviser we found Kamala beach as one of these quite places and found this hotel. When we called the hotel the owner Jim (British guy) picked up the phone and advised us how to get there by a taxi. We wanted to get picked up by the hotel but he advised a cheaper option which is by Taxi from the Airport. When we arrived at the hotel Jim himself walked us through the hotel our room he even picked up our bags. The rooms are nice and clean. The best part of this hotel is the Swimming pool, which is very nice a clean. Because we went there in the low season so they did not offer free breakfast but you can get breakfast at their restaurant or there is plenty of café and restaurants. The Kamala beach is only 5min. walking distance from the hotel and they also have a free tuktuk to and from beach. All the staffs are very nice and helpful they also speak good English. Paul is the manager who is also from England, a very nice person and has good knowledge about the area. One of our days we stayed there were Friday a holy day from Muslims, and when my wife were inquiring about the nearby Masque to Sukahti the housekeeping manger for Friday praying. Ms Sukathi even arranged someone from the area to take me to the Masque. We stayed there for two nights and rented a car from them. They allowed us to keep the car with us and when we requested if someone can drop us at the airport they agreed to it and the Sukahti ( who is also a very nice person) dropped us at the airport. After two nights we moved to Bang Tao beach area because we like that beach and the hotel we stayed there is right on the beach, otherwise we would have stayed at Kamala Tropical Garden Hotel all the time we were at Phuket. If we go to Kamala again we will definitely stay there. Both I and My wife believe that we made few life time friends during our stay at Kamala Tropical Garden Hotel. That’s one the reasons that we travel: To make life time friends. Thank you Jim, Paula and Shukhati.

The hotel is pretty good, and Paul the manager was really friendly and helpful. The restaurant was pretty good also, had breakfast and a meal and both were quite good. It's in the middle of the island so it's good if you want to visit different places. Would recommend it!!!

Hello and thank you for your kind review, Im glad that you found my services really friendly as it is my job to assist customers with any questions or advise and also just for a chit chat. Your correct on the location is very central with only a 5 minute drive to the beautiful surin beach heading north and about 15 minute drive heading south to the hustle and bustle that is Patong which has night life to suite most peoples needs!. I hope to see you again in the future if your visiting Phuket again.
Best Regards
Paul

Great environment they have, especially the swimming pool. A very nice place to chill if you want some free time to relax. The staffs are very friendly. They too will help us to provide transportation arrangements and recommend local attractions. Kamala beach is just a 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from ktg. My friends and I really enjoy the stay with ktg. I strongly recommend ktg to you guys if you are planning your trip to Phuket.

My first visit to Phuket, with Kamala Tropical Garden Hotel, recommended by my boss. Good to stay and convenient, their room was very clean and safety locker is provided, even I do not know how to use it (you can get advice/help from Hotel). The Hotel located near to Kamala Beach and some convenient store such as Tesco and 7-11. We brought some beer and drink beside the swimming pool every night. =D We having our breakfast at Taosha (restaurant in Hotel) with variety choices which you can choose any two types which you like. The owner Jim and his wife was very nice. Thanks to them for the Kalibu (coconut wine) and bring us to watch some special show. It's very fun and we are enjoyable.
