It was our first time in Thailand with our two young children. After a week in the Kata beach area we then moved up to Kamala and our stay at the Royal Embassy for the remaining 10 nights in Thailand. This is a peaceful, spotlessly clean and comfortable place all run with impeccable precision by the owner Phil and his...

The reviews about this place are spot on. The staff are really nice, very helpful with advice and bookings. The owner, Phil, even drove us out one night in his own car. The location sucks a little, as it is quite a walk to the beach. They do run a shuttle bus to and from, and the driver will arrange...

Thank you for your review and your positive comments. Great to know you enjoyed your stay and our restaurant," Ambassador Bistro" Location I guess is not perfect, particularly if you like the beach, but it is only a 5 minute walk, or ten minutes to the really nice part of the beach and we are very close to banks, supermarkets,...

This was the last stop on our 3 destination custom-designed vacation on the Andaman coast, put together by Andaman Sky.
