Me and wife stayed here for 3 nights and were looking for a private getaway. We booked a One Bedroom Courtyard Pool Villa but was given a family 3 (I think) bedroom villa instead. We expect such thing do happen sometime but the master bedroom was at the upper level hence it's quite troublesome for us to access the kitchen,... More

This hotel was very nice. Rooms were gorgeous and well appointed. The best part was that it was a fully equipped villa with a living room area for us to hang out in. Washer and Dryer was there but locked....very strange. When we checked in, we were told the cost to unlock was THB200 per day (at least that's what... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at Kanda Residences. The villa was beautiful and well appointed, the staff was friendly and the restaurant and spa were quite nice for a boutique resort. The resort is very quiet and the rocky coast line means that there is no foot traffic on the small beach. The breakfast was quite ample, with attentive... More

There is also Access to the beautiful private beach and wonderful views from the Rockpool restaraunt. Wifi and in room dining were spot on, keeping our teenager happy.... More

This serene luxury location provides ample sized accommodation for couples up to small groups of friends and children. The Beach sized Villa we had was luxurious and well equipped with modern amenities. The views,... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. The room was very nice as well as the facilities, but the real difference for me was how friendly the staff was. Everyone we encountered was very welcoming and helpful. The food was great too including the best free breakfast at a hotel I have ever had. We ate at the Rock Pool... More

We had a 2 BR villa with an extra bed at Kanda, however since the extra bed was small we got upgraded to a 3BR villa. The villa was amazing and the swimming pool was very clean and comfortable. The hotel had good breakfast and dine in room options. We had a an awesome time. Would thoroughly recommend Kanda :).
