EDITOR’S INDEPENDENT REVIEW: Ayara Kamala Resort has moved away from the standard beachfront in favour of a grand hillside location that provides every room stunning views over the Andaman Sea. In some places it’s steep enough to be called cliff-side, and as the photos show, it’s indeed spectacular. There resort provides shuttle transport to Kamala Beach, just 5 minutes away – or a 15 minute walk for the fit.

The resorts does have water access, over granite boulders below the resort. There’s a small sandy sun terrace there. During the high season when the water is exceptionally calm guests can swim or snorkel here.

One of Ayara’s most interesting facets is the wide variety of room and villa configurations; from single rooms for couples to a three bedroom villa with four swimming pools ( a private one for each bedroom) for families or groups. Then there are various villas in between, most with kitchenettes that allow families to prepare basic home meals. The two common themes across all accommodations here are pool access and amazing views. Facing directly west, guests often get to see the great red orb slipping into the Andaman Sea, while often enjoying spectacular sunset skies.

The architecture of Ayara is distinctly Thai, blended with contemporary interiors and décor. All 5-star amenities are included. Most palpable is the spaciousness of the accommodations, accented by lots of floor to ceiling glass. Balconies are big enough to be really useful, places to feel the almost constant sea breezes. This high up, with the views, the breeze and the openness there’s a sensation of freedom, the feeling that if you wave the arms a bit you might just take off like a bird in the wind.

Romantic? Absolutely. That sandy beach might be a 5 minute ride away, but for those seeking some quiet time together in a stunning location with grand panoramas and fabulous sunsets, this might just be the place.
