5-bedroom Villas in Kamala, Phuket, Thailand

A former fishing village, now home to a collection of Phuket's most luxurious properties, Kamala is a town in transition. Set along a curving, white-sand bay on Phuket's west coast, Kamala has emerged as a more low-key resort destination than the neighbouring beaches of Patong and Surin, and something of an expat enclave. Families particularly enjoy Kamala's shallow sea waters and less chaotic feel, and fishermen-turned-tour guides now offer trips to nearby beaches on their traditional long-tail boats, still seen bobbing in the bay's south end.

Local eateries and bars remain mostly casual watering holes – chilled-out Kamala has neither the hectic debauchery of Patong nor the swankiness of Surin. Shopping is done at local open-air markets or the small shops that line the village's streets selling tourist fare, beachwear and convenience items. Those seeking more upscale choices head north to Surin Beach (4km), to the Laguna Phuket Canal Village shopping centre in Bang Tao Beach (10km), or south to the Jungceylon shopping centre in Patong (15km).

A few minutes south of Kamala town, yet a world apart, is the headland known as Millionaires' Mile, a luxury enclave where Phuket's most stylish and pricey resorts and private villas can be found along its stunning coastal road. Among these is the smart Andara Resort, owned by Hong Kong's famed entrepreneur Allan Zeman, with its popular Silk restaurant, the Hyatt Regency Phuket and the five-star Cape Sienna resort, whose rooftop bar, Vanilla Sky, is a hot spot for sunset cocktails. Kamala is a 28km drive south from Phuket International Airport.

Villa Amanzi Kamala

Villa Amanzi Kamala

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We just had so much fun staying at Villa Amanzi. We were blown away by how beautifully its unusual modern design fits with the tropical setting. On seeing the villa for the first time, we could just imagine this scenario: A man meets his architect at a bar to discuss plans for a new villa. The man orders a drink: "I'd like it on the rocks, please!" The architect dutifully executes this request, et voila! Amanzi is born.

But this was no accident, of course. Amanzi's design takes full advantage of the property's unusual natural features and does not impose less imaginative people might have simply blasted the rock out to make way for the villa.

We enjoyed trying out all the high-tech bells and whistles such as the touch-screen control panel and were constantly surprised by all the fun little design details such as the two 'windows' on the swimming pool's bottom that formed funky blue 'skylights' to the floor below one in the family room, the other above the balcony.

Another plus was that all the electronic controls and buttons were clearly labelled and easy to use even for techno-phobes such as ourselves. In the end, however, nature won out as we delighted in listening to the crashing waves and birdsong, and watching in awe as the sunset skies turned the infinity pool into a luminous blaze of gold, pink and red.

Villa Chada

Villa Chada

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We have stayed in luxury accommodation plenty of times before, but we have to say that Villa Chada is amongst our absolute favourites. The landscaped gardens are fantastic, the lawns are neat, the lotus ponds swarm with colourful fish as gargoyles stare fiercely, and frangipani and bougainvillea trees give colour and scent. It really is a tropical garden oasis.

We spent most of our time in the infinity pool, it’s big enough to exercise and overlooks the ocean, and is surrounded by tall tropical trees. If we weren’t in the pool, we could be found lounging on the sunbeds, soaking up the rays. Early evenings were spent on the daybed gazing out at the ocean and not doing a lot apart from listening to nature’s sounds that one misses in hectic city life. We saw colourful longtail fishing boats pass by, and one day, to our delight, a monitor lizard hurrying for cover on the cliffs below.

We did have a small tussle over who would stay in the master suite as it has the best views and a great wraparound terrace, but it really didn’t matter as all the suites have fantastic views and with three bathtubs to choose from to bubble up, we were more than happy.

The villa staff is friendly and discreet. The food was amazing, Thai cuisine with suggestions from our very own private chef. They even ran out to the local store to buy us some wine on request. Apart from the TV, there isn’t much in the way of entertainment so bring a book or two and enjoy well-earned tranquility. There’s plenty to do outside the villa, we spent one afternoon at the luxury Andara Resort, enjoying the fine dining experience and watching children take part in cookery classes.

Villa Samira

Villa Samira

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

At Villa Samira we really felt connected to the sea and sky. The villa is blessed with all-encompassing views and fabulous sunsets, and with its sleek style and cool blue, turquoise and white accents, it emanated a luxury yacht-like ambiance that had us dreaming of long sea voyages as we floated blissfully in the pool.  

We think this villa would have extra appeal for groups of holidaying couples, with its three top-floor bedroom suites each offering lavish places to relax in privacy.  Battles might be waged, however, over the master suite, with its coveted private jacuzzi set on the terrace and extra-large dressing room and bathroom.  The three lower-floor guest rooms, though slightly smaller, still offer plenty of comfort and luxury. 

The staff here are friendly and helpful and, though unobtrusive, are available throughout the day whenever needed.  The villa manager was keen to know exactly how we liked our meals prepared, and when we mentioned that we liked spicy food she added an extra side dish of chopped chilli at dinner time.  (We’d forgotten that when you say “spicy” in Thailand it means a white-hot fire! So it was thoughtful of her to give us control over the heat level.)

Baan Lom Talay

Baan Lom Talay

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

With the rich life and vivid tropical colours of Kamala Bay stretched out broadly before it, Baan Lom Talay’s location is about as good as it gets. When we could tear ourselves away from watching herons and Brahminy kites swooping over the sea from the ample terraces, the bedrooms certainly provided a fantastic retreat. Each of the five suites is a mini-villa in itself and a group of friends or an extended family will really enjoy the privacy and comfort they offer. The beautiful vaulted ceilings in three of the bedrooms give them extra grandeur and there are few better ways to toast the setting sun than while sitting in a big, bubbling outdoor jacuzzi. We enjoyed the villa’s lush, green surrounds as much as its sea views: the grounds are abloom with native trees and exotic plants, and the pink and white bougainvilleas set in boxes on all the terraces offer a striking colour contrast to the sea.

One does not appreciate Baan Lom Talay’s full size and glory until stepping inside. The stairs alone – and there are many! – are quite a wonder in the way they zigzag between the villa's four levels. The pool’s shallow section is a great feature for families, though parents will need to be watchful since there are no barriers to the deep end .

We found the villa staff to be excellent, offering us a warm welcome and being quick to assist whenever needed. We appreciated the personal touches, such as bringing fresh coffee to our bedroom terrace first thing in the morning, saving us a trip down to the kitchen. The villa manageress is especially helpful and speaks good English. Truly, the only difficulty we faced at Baan Lom Talay was leaving it!

Samsara Estate - Villa Benyasiri

Samsara Estate - Villa Benyasiri

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

The view at Villa Benyasiri is to die for: a truly spectacular panorama. The villa is perfect for those who enjoy a private, luxury experience with little desire to leave the amazing views that the villa offers. Groups would also enjoy this villa for a party or reunion, but remember that two of the five bedrooms are twin-share and more oriented to families holidaying with children.

A definite party pad, Villa Benyasiri offers Vogue-style views, modern living and contemporary spaces. The owners, who frequently holiday here, have two energetic kids, but if you are travelling with young children who need lots of space, Villa Benyasiri may be a little constraining; families with older children looking for ‘action’ may prefer a less secluded location although Patong is really not far away.

Samsara Estate - Villa Fah Sai

Samsara Estate - Villa Fah Sai

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We thought that Villa Fah Sai was very homely and thoughtfully designed so that the views can be admired and enjoyed to the max. The dining deck offers the best panoramas and is perfect for entertaining, with its barbecue and built-in speakers. The kitchen is also a very sociable space with its breakfast nook and plenty of room for a couple of cooks.

The villa would be great for two families, an extended family, couples or groups of friends, although the rooms are not all equally sized; the master bedroom, with its direct staircase link to the fifth bedroom, is ideal for a family share. The well-equipped entertainment room will also appeal to kids, and the swimming pool has a shallow end (though supervision of smaller children would still be necessary around the infinity edge).

The villa would also make a good corporate escape; the master bedroom is private and has an attached lounge and office, the villa is WiFi enabled and has a telephone in each room, and there are plenty of spectacular locations for wining and dining. The management’s ‘can-do’ guest relations service and the excellent Thai chef also enhance its suitability for a business retreat; specific menus and social occasions can be arranged on request.  Food is prepared according to a villa menu, and staff will do your shopping (provisions at cost, plus a shopping charge added to guest account).

The villa’s spa room (when not being used as the fifth bedroom!) is a delight, and means that you don’t have to travel anywhere for a pampering treat! Twin massage tables allow for romantic double treatments too.
