I stayed at Kanda with my wife to celebrate our second wedding anniversary - we were joined by four friends and so went for an ocean front 4 bed pool villa. Our booking was based on previous positive TripAdvisor reviews. Right from the booking to our arrival, we had exceptional service from Nikki (Areerat) and Scott via email correspondence to... More

Just spent the most relaxing week at Kanda residences. The whole trip was a spur of the moment thing and Kanda was somewhere we'd never heard of on an island we'd never been to. I am very familiar with Bangkok and Krabi, less so with Phuket & Phi Phi but Ko Samui was all new to me. It still is.... More

When you pay a price for a stay in an ocean facing villa, you'd definitely expect value for money. We stayed at kanda for our honeymoon for 3 nights and the stay was just about average and disappointing on some front. The breakfast spread is extremely limited (surprising for a 5 star tag) and the food kept is at most... More

We stayed in a seaside pool villa with friends and our kids - it was the perfect setting! Great restaurant / delivery service and close to many activities around the place. Staff was extraordinarily friendly in a very personal way. We took a Thai cooking class which was super fun and fed the whole crew. We will come back many... More
