This place is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, pharmacies, markets, etc. There's a scooter rental at the hotel.

We heard you could get nicer accommodation nearby for the same price, and the place apparently has come under new management. We were one of only three other occupied rooms at the time, so it was very quiet.

The staff went above and beyond and were very sweet. There's a Thai and Western breakfast offered in the mornings.

Tip - the actual suites, which are cheaper than the villas, are much nicer rooms. We ended up switching to a suite because my father wanted colder water in the shower, and we wished we had just booked in a suite originally instead of the villa.

Room Tip: Go for a suite instead of a villa (cheaper, nicer)

We stayed here for a week and literally had the whole place to ourselves. The hotel is currently changing names (Pela) and ownership and will soon be very busy. We had a villa, just like our own little house by the pool. Spotlessly clean and well equipped although the resort as a whole does need a little TLC to get it back to how it should be. Just minor things like repainting the roof tiles and sprucing up the pool bar area. This is a very small, cosy and friendly resort where the staff are friendly and helpful. The new manager Jamnong and his assistant could not have been more friendly and helpful. They could not do enough for us and they are a huge asset to the new owners. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the main street of restaurants and also to the beach. We loved it and would happily return. Sadly however the new owners seem to have increased prices quite significantly and to be honest are pricing themselves out of the market. Such a shame as we would have returned had the prices remained within range of what we paid this time. We had a fantastic time here and hope to return one day.

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 they were good, they were unbelievable, the best we've ever tasted, and we're from Starbucks hometown!
The view while sitting in the restaurant with the windows wide open, sometimes watching the torrential rain overflowing the pools and walkways, was quite exotic, wonderfully out of our normal lifestyle.
The manager, whose name I have somewhere in a stack of papers, was very social and informative. A very friendly, nice guy.
If we come back again, we will stay at this resort and I'd recommend it to friends

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 very reasonably priced. Email them for a quote.

The resort is around 10-15 minutes north of Patong and a taxi or Tuk Tuk was 400 baht (around $16) each way. Some drivers asked 500 baht ($20) but accept 400 baht without much fuss. Nothing much you can do about the cost. Most things outside Patong require a taxi or Tuk Tuk anyway. The office can call one for you if you don't want to do it yourself.

We had two x two bedroom apartments and both are very spacious and much like a small unit. Full appliances and cupboard space with a Big C supermarket only a 10 minute walk away.

Pools are kept clean and maintained with lovely gardens. Keep an eye out for little creatures. We saw a small lizard, a rather large snail and centipede and pretty butterflies. Our children were always on the look out to see what else they could find.

Nothing was a problem for the staff.

We had an instance where my mum was sick for about four days. This was as a result of something she ate in Patong at a restaurant. The staff at the resort were very concerned and when my wife and I (and our children) were out on day trips, they kept an eye on her to make sure she was ok.

All in all, this is a very nice place, with nice staff and a lovely outlook. We would stay here again no problem.

A big mention to Wud who always seemed to be around to take us to Kamala beach or the shops on his motorbike and this was quite enjoyable. He also ensured mum was ok. He used his own personal car to take her to the local doctor at no cost. It's these small things that make a big difference. You don't get that at large hotels or resorts.

By all means, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I can answer them for you.

Thank you to all at the Pe La Resort. Formally known as Royal Embassy resort and Spa. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

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 super supportive staff.
You can stay in one of the 5 villas or i one of 14 apartments. There are direct access to one of 2 pools. One for children and one with built-in jacuzzi for adults. The sauna is used as storage-room ;-) and the beach is a 10 minuts walk away unless you use the tub-tuk service offered by the smiling and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Please note the hotel is changing name to become "The Pe La Resort" That might confuse you in the booking, but it is only change of name
