Appealing and decent value
Across the road from the beach along a strip with several restaurants and shops, the Print Kamala is a popular resort with rooms and bungalows in a traditional Thai style without going overboard.
The bungalows offer the best value, though their tired looking interiors could use an upgrade. In 2010, a new building was built with flashier rooms and direct access to Print Kamala’s newer pool, which is smaller and looked in need of a cleaning when we last visited. The newer rooms are more modern-minimalist, with buffed concrete floors, LCD TV, a massive bed and a safety box. A dead giveaway that the Print Kamala Resort caters to package tourists is that the restaurant has expensive seafood barbecues (pay 600 baht for prawns and get a free bowl of rice!) and live music that, on a bad night, borders on karaoke. Regardless, the rates are competitive for the area and there’s usually a promotional package for multi-night stays. Prices include breakfast and WiFi.
