We were staying in a condo across the street from the Royal Embassy Resort & Spa and wandered in for breakfast 3 days in a row, also picking up take-away for the kids sleeping in. They had a variety of breakfasts--Thai, American and English, and numerous lite options. The lattes were of inconsistent quality, depending on who made them. When... More

We stayed here for 11 nights from 3rd October to 14th October. Our time here was very pleasant from the moment we arrived to the time we left. I cannot remember the managers name but he treated all of us with great courtesy and as if we were a part of his family. The price of the accomodation was also... More

Kamala is one of the more quit places on the Phuket island not far from Patong with its noise and crowds of partying people. Kamala has no nightclubs but instead nice restaurants and a welcoming beach. If you then make your choice for Royal Embassy Resort and Spa as your accommodation, you have found a well-maintained, small, boutique hotel with... More

The resort and apartment (we had a 2 bedroom apartment) were excellent. The resort is clean and relatively quiet (we were there in July/ August end rain season) and has very nice staff. We enjoyed our stay very much!

I am currently on a month-long trip with several friends exploring Southeast Asia. We have stayed in small villages and big cities, and we've been in some great places and some not-so-great ones. This was absolutely the worst. First: the units were decent and the grounds and fairly pretty. The pool is nice and the apartments are relatively clean. That... More

We travelled as a family of 5 in June 2016. Hotel was well-kept and clean, with nice rooms. We had a two bedroom suite - ktichen was decently stocked, but just enough for 4 people.

We have stayed a few times at the Royal Embassy Resort and Spa and loved it! It was like a home from home this beautiful haven in Kamala.

The first appearance of the place is a lovely little hotel, however, within the first few minutes, noticed the green on the tiles of the pool which is very off putting, we never went into the pools because of this. The room itself was lovely, ground floor next to the sauna/spa. However the level of service was a joke. The... More
