Without a doubt Royal embassy is a beautiful, great value resort! However... when we were staying there was a lot of noise from surrounding construction sites. Because of this noise we were considering moving, however after looking at other nearby hotels & resorts we decided to stay as Royal embassy is so lovely & good value for money.
We stayed in a Bungalow which was spacious & clean. The grounds are green & gorgeous, complete with 2 pools & a very cute bunny. It often felt like we had a pool to ourselves! Henri, Phil & staff are very friendly & helpful & they care about their guests.
The resort restaurant is yummy & there is also lots of restaurants down the road. You can hire a motorbike to get around easily.
I hope the construction finishes soon & then Royal embassy will be perfection!

Thank you for your review. Yes the construction next door has been a problem, we have done our best to ensure our guests inconvenience is kept to a minimum, with agreements with the building company that no noisy work is started before 10am and as you will know, little or no noise is heard from the pool area. On a positive note, all the structure is now finished, so much more peaceful from now on. We have also recently double glassed most of the apartment windows that face the building site so little or no noise is heard.. Thank you for your review it was nice to meet you and have you stay with us Regards Phil Seal Managing Director

We went to royal embassy resort&spa kamala after spending 3 nights in Bangkok and this place was amazing. We were welcomed on arrival by owner phil and wife Ari and brought us to our beautiful bungalow which was lovely inside and nice and clean as it was our honeymoon Ari had placed beautiful rose petals on our four poster bed. We found this place so peaceful and relaxing with extremely attentive and pleasant owners and staff who made us so welcome all the time and a massive thanks to phil and Ari for taking us to Rawai where we had the most amazing fresh seafood sitting right by the sea. We also ate most nights in royal embassy and their food every night was absolutely fantastic could not fault it in any way at all and amazing prices. Good drink prices aswell and Ari makes the best long island ice tea hehe!! Could not have asked for nicer people who made our stay a truly memorable time. Thanks guys.

We visited The Royal Embassy and originally intended on staying for 5 nights, but ended up staying for a further 4 nights after loving this type of accommodation. The Bungalows were lovely and the pools to match. The good thing being there are two pools, one intended for children leaving the other to the adults most of the time.

The staff were more than helpful in every way, helping us get to the Famous vegetarian festival a the right time and location which made our day. We also did the Kayaking trip organised through the hotel which was a great day.

We only had breakfast and bar snacks during the day but were more than happy with the standard of food. The price was also very reasonable.

The only negative issue I must raise is the major security issue which occurred during our stay. Phil the manager assured me he was going to sort the situation out and I have no reason to disbelieve him. Make sure you use the safes provided...

But after all myself and my wife had a lovely stay at the Embassy Resort,

Thanks to all the staff....

Room Tip: Bungalow 1 had a great position looking straight across the pools, but to be honest 1,2 & 3 woul...

Stayed in October with a friend in the 2 bedroom bungalo and really enjoyed it. Room was spacious and close to the pool so you could lounge out, run back in for supplies and back out! Phil, Phil's wife and Henri were very helpful and friendly. Food was enjoyable and especially the flexibility to eat on our bungalo outdoor area one night made for a fun evening of relaxing or whilst lounging by the pool! Short walk into town but lifts are available if needed. Staff very helpful in organising trips out and transport to airport.
I would recommend it for some time out. Thank you to Phil & Henry for a great stay!

My only other tip - if you have a rough time sleeping on hard mattresses - put a doona (duvet) on the base - I didn't find out this tip and so sleep was a bit rough - but that is one of my unlucky things of not being able to sleep anywhere - not an issue with the hotel:)

Room Tip: Bungalos are great especially the ground floor.
