More on Kamala Beach

It’s nothing fancy, but the rooms at Benjamin are sufficiently comfy and great value given their location on the beach.

Travelfish says:

Though they’re looking a bit smudgy and dusty in places, it’s safe to say they are probably the best value rooms at this price and location in all of Phuket. While the rooms are as plain as it gets, they are at least air-con and have TV and a mini-fridge. The bathrooms all have tubs and hot water, although taller travellers will have to stoop to shower. Most rooms have huge balconies and you pay extra for one with a full sea view — we don’t think it’s worth the 600 baht extra in high season though. The best view of all is from the rooftop terrace where you can chill out with a drink and order a meal from the on-site restaurant. They’ll also serve you breakfast in your room if you arrange it ahead of time. Benjamin Resorts accepts email bookings but fills up very fast during the high season. The reception staff told us it’s best just to book on arrival, so be sure to have a back-up plan.
