Located on the west coast of Phuket, between Surin Beach and Patong, Kamala is a former fishing village in Phuket, Thailand. The town is less populated than a lot of the other areas along the west coast. It is also one of the few places in the area that still retains a sense of tranquillity and a village feel.
A haven for those who prefer the quieter life and a peaceful and laid-back atmosphere. Kamala is a favoured spot for European families, young couples, retirees and lower-key partying guests. An up and coming area that is quickly becoming one of Phuket’s best family hotspots with many apartments and condos for sale.

Although the northern end of Kamala is mostly untouched by urbanisation, a mixture of hotels and smaller boutique style resorts can still be found in this area. The headland to the south, however, is a hot-spot known as Millionaire’s Mile. This area offers great views of Kamala Bay and is sprinkled with a number of luxury villas, private apartments and vacation homes with amazing ocean views. Many of the new Kamala Hotels and exclusive Resorts, including the 5 star Andara Resort and Villas, Ayara Kamala, Cape Sienna, and The Hyatt are located in this section of the town.
The beach is magnificent and is one of the main attractions of the area. Backed by lush rolling hills, the turquoise beach with its pristine stretch of soft, white sand is not over crowded, which makes it a great spot to relax, surf during the low season and enjoy an excellent day out at the beach. At the north end of the beach is a coral reef that is perfect for snorkelling. Despite its small-town atmosphere, you will find several quaint little restaurants in Kamala serving a variety of cuisines. Many of the town’s restaurants offer expansive ocean views. Fine dining can be enjoyed at restaurants like Plum at Cape Sienna and Silk at Andara Resort. There is also a range of bars to match.
Phuket Fantasea is the town’s most popular attraction and the ultimate night-time cultural theme park. The colourful park is huge and is a giant melting pot of tourists. Phuket Fantasea features massive temples, dazzling stage performances, dozens of elephants and colourful game zones for the kids.
Kamala is a great place to buy a home for the long term and not just as an investment. As such, a wide choice of properties are available for buyers who want to put down roots in the town. Kamala’s properties are centrally located and will put you close to the airport (25 mins), and the tourist areas of Patong (10 mins) and Surin (5 mins). There are a wide selection of condos, apartments and vacation homes in and around town available for purchase now.
Over the last 5 years, new developments in the area have increased, which is evidenced by the number of private apartments and condominiums under construction and in planning. The average price per square metre on new developments has more than doubled between 2007 and 2015 and is still improving. Buyers in Kamala can expect to pay between 2m to 40m THB for condos and apartments so there is a great choice for every budget.
