Step back in time, recharge batteries; enjoy the all-suite experience at Phuket’s Kamala bay. Pela in Thai means time, a special time; perhaps an excursion into bygone time. At The Pela Resort, time almost stands still; it’s that relaxing.
Hundreds of TripAdvisor reviews confirm this boutique resort as a place in time that will be memorable and one that guests always promise to repeat. Many do, year-after-year, making it their holiday home in the sun. This all-suite resort stands on a quiet lane shaded by a headland, just a 10-minute walk to the beach and the village’s shops and market. Often called an ‘oasis of calm’ in guest reviews, the 20 suites, all with private patios, or balconies, stand in an exquisitely manicured garden facing two swimming pools that enjoy a cooling afternoon shade. Service has been honed to near perfection in the eight years this all-suite resort has been serving discerning travellers. It promises a welcome and dispenses a memorable holiday experience.
The Pela Resort has pedigree, being part of the Richmond Hotels and Resorts group that owns and operates four hotels in Bangkok. The attention to detail and the group’s track record in delivering five-star hospitality makes The Pela the perfect choice for a family holiday; perhaps a honeymoon, or a time to renew vows and rekindle romance. There are thousands of reasons why travellers wish to turn the clock back to a calmer, romantic era and enjoy The Pela Resort’s setting, its interior décor, gardens and impeccable service. One is the superb value for money and the other the quality holiday content reflected in suites, environment and Thai hospitality. Yet this oasis is close to all the attractions; Kamala’s horseshoe bay stretching northwards from the headland for more than 1 km and the village with its supermarket, shops, fresh market, banks and restaurants, just a 10-minute stroll away.
Signature features: All suites face the pools, poolside bar and service, Jacuzzi, restaurant serving Thai and European cuisine, Wi-Fi throughout the resort, tour desk and complimentary transfers to the beach and village. The Pela is located a 45-minute drive from Phuket International (19 Km) and 9 km from Patong bay.
