I have just returned from a 5 day trip to kanda and wish I was still there. The villas are excellent all with their own private dip pools. For serious swimmers there is a large pool close to the restaurant and for children there is also a children's pool close to the beach. The villas and communal areas are all... More

Had a wonderful stay and didn't want to leave. The villa was lovely and huge with a separate living area and kitchen and a private pool with lovely views overlooking the bay.

Myself and my wife stayed in Villa 14 at Kanda Residences for eight nights at the beginning of February. It was one of the best holidays we have ever had.

I've been in a lot of places all around the world, but nothing was as good as my stay at Kanda Residences in Koh Samui. This is mostly due to the perfect 24/7 service the staff provides. The villa gives you a very luxurious feeling and makes you never want to leave. I even considered moving to Thailand because of... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon several years ago when it was called Karma and were looking forward to coming back. Can safely say now that we have children it's even better!

My wife and I travelled for a month in Thailand and was really looking fwd to Koh samui, but will say the start of our trip on this island wasn't the best. Check-in was fine, the room was ok.
