We had a terrific stay at the Umbrella House in Kamala Beach. We especially loved the staff. Mr. Bom was very gracious and took time to explain the town, the beach, and the details of the room. Mr. Bom lives upstairs, so someone is always available if you have a question or need.
The staff were very accommodating and thoughtful. They noticed that we were eating dinner in our room (after the baby went to sleep), so they brought us plates and silverware for the next day, without us even asking. We couldn't do a late checkout, but we were able to use the pool and shower in the lobby in order to stay at the Umbrella House until we had to leave for our flight back to Bangkok.
The location is great for the town. There are two terrific local Thai eateries just about 1 block to the south. In addition, an amazing market (open Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday 3pm-8pm) is also only 1 block down the road to the south. We picked up all sorts of delicious food at the market for dinner. The beach is only about 7-8 minutes walk from Umbrella House, down a couple side streets. You have to cross the main road first. You walk past many little eateries, massage places, bars, salons, and shops on the way.
The pool was very refreshing, and there was a pretty yellow-bloomed plant growing up the wall overlooking the pool, with cute little birds flitting around it.
The room was extremely clean and spacious. We had a king-sized bed. The bathroom and shower were especially nice, with both a hand-held shower and a big overhead shower.
We highly recommend Umbrella House!
We stayed in umbrella house for two nights (my spouse, our baby daughter and me) and my gratitude to Mr Bon for his warmth, concern and care during our stay. In terms of the hotel itself, it is v conveniently located just off the main road in a quiet cul de sac. It's quiet, quite clean and well maintained, and the toiletries and overall decor is really tastefully done. There's a 11/7 a minutes walk from the place, and there's a really nice restaurant named Chicarico nearby
Room tip: If one wants to avoid taking the stairs (there is no elevator to my understanding) then perhaps choose the pool access room which is where we stayed in and it was more than sufficient.
Umbrella House is a gem of a small hotel. Tucked away on a quiet alley off the busy main road that separates it from the lively restaurants, bars and hotels of Kamala Beach, it’s a quiet, comfortable retreat ... yet an easy walk to everything via a lighted intersection, where the traffic actually stops long enough to allow you to cross the main road with time to spare. There’s a Tesco Express and a nice pharmacy right behind the hotel for any supplies you may need. The young man who runs the front desk is friendly, very helpful and makes the complementary breakfast of coffee and toast you can eat by the small pool next to the lobby.
The best service you could ever ask for, beautiful rooms and conveniently located. The lobby is inviting to hang out with comfortable chairs and a small pool with a wall of orchids blooming. And, everything is extremely clean and well tended. I highly recommend the Umbrella House!
