Swissotel Kamala Beach Review – Why it’s the Best Resort in Phuket?

Swissotel Kamala Beach cover

If you are asking me where’s the best resort in Phuket? I can answer with absolute certainty. It’s Swissotel Kamala Beach, without a doubt. Set on the broad sweep of Kamala Bay, on Phuket’s west coast, Swissotel Resort Phuket is two minutes’ walk to the quiet Kamala beach. Away from the buzzing Patong, it’s a perfect spot for a peaceful getaway. Here’s my full of Swissotel Kamala Beach review.

Where’s  Swissotel Kamala Beach?

Kamala Beach lies just north of the lights and noise of Patong. It’s a quieter stretch of sand with a more relaxed feel. And the beautiful Swissotel Resort Phuket is just right next to it. A destination in itself, the resort is a 30-minute drive from Phuket International Airport and 15 mins away from Patong Beach, making it an ideal base from which to explore Phuket.

Inside the resort, there are 180 luxurious one to three-bedroom exclusive suites, each with a separate bedroom, living room and private balcony. The design of the room is so classy, elegant with a touch of Thai.

Inside my one-bedroom suite, there is a spacious living room, where you can watch TV, chit chat with your loved ones, or simply read a book.

The bed room is artistically decorated to match the living room. The bed is big and comfortable, guaranteeing you a good sleep. And the resort staff even made for us a cute elephant using towels. How sweet!

The Calming Pool of Swissotel Kamala Beach

The spacious pool is another highlight of the resort. The giant circular-shaped pool exudes a sense of serenity. The pool bar next to it makes it so convenient to order your favourite drink. If your room is located on the ground-floor like mine, this perfect pool is just steps away.

The resort offers one of the best international buffet breakfasts. The food is of high quality and there are myriad of choices to choose from. Just look at the amount of food I ate on that day!

If you decide to settle all your meals in the resort, there’s actually an one restaurant, which serves three meals a day.The Grab & Go shop includes pre-cooked meals you can reheat and eat together on your suite’s balcony, without the formality of a restaurant.

Stepping out of Swissotel Kamala Beach

Keen to explore other parts of Phuket? Then you should seriously consider hiring a car. We hired ours from Budget Car Rental, and the rental was around 1000 baht per day. I strongly recommend the latter option as it’s much more economical to get your own car. Transportation like taxi in Phuket is really expensive, and the attractions are far away. You actually end up saving a lot by hiring your own car while having the chance to explore any parts of Phuket at your own pace!

The Verdict

Swissotel Kamala Beach is a solid four-star hotel with friendly service and great experience. It’s the ultimate getaway for people who want to get soaked in tranquility. I’ll go back for sure during my next Phuket trip. Book your room online at Swissotel’s official site and enjoy the best rates, guaranteed.

    I love staying in a hotel or a resort that feels like more of an apartment than a sterile one bed room. I would love to stay here!!!

    Phuket is such an exotic and charming place. The Swissotel Kamala looks like an ideal getaway to enjoy the pleasures of Phuket. I like the way the interiors are done, looks so bright and cheerful. The pool looks so enticing too.

    • The resort is really thoughtfully designed to let travelers rewind. 🙂

  • I can see why you like this hotel. It’s close to the action but not too close. Plus, that giant circular-shaped pool looks absolutely awesome.

    What a cool resort hotel! We don’t typically spend enough time at a hotel to take advantage of the kid options, but when we do we’re so thankful. And having lots of space in a suite has also become more important to us the more we venture out.

    • That’s the beauty of family travel! Hope you can visit there one day!
