We had villa 7 which we were concerned would be too close to reception however it had great views and was very large. As it turned out it was a great location. With a nice pool. For us the biggest disappointment was the restaurant although most reviews seem to really rate it. If we ate there we ordered what we... More

During this years annual trip around Asia from The States, I stayed here hoping to enjoy Koh Samui at it's best. Big mistake!!!! Arrival was hectic with Thai staff speaking little English and not interested in helping. Walked down steep hill to the Villa and carried one of my own bags. "No available buggy". Villa was dated and to get... More

Stayed in the four bedroom villa 2/12 to 6/12 with an infant and 2 kids but never felt any discomfort. Amazing hospitality. A bit into the outskirts but not inconvenient just that you are out of walking range. Rocky beach not the one you can take a dip into but kayaking is a must try in the evenings. Only one... More

Lovely resort, plenty of room. Would definitely stay again. Variety of outdoor areas and the private pool was a good size. A little rainy in November so don't forget your mosquito zapper. The private day bed was gorgeous for relaxing and reading a book and the free shuttle a bonus.

After being met by the hotel transfer guide we were taken to paradise in less than ten minutes. On arrival our group were greeted by reception staff with cool face towels, a welcome drink and then shown to our stunning beachfront villa. Central area for cooking, dining, relaxing – with infinity pool outside, and enough loungers for sun worship. The... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the peaceful and beautiful Kanda Residences. The pool villa was exactly like the pictures online, spacious and well maintained. The resort was spotless, with friendly staff and great customer service. We celebrated my birthday as well as our anniversary, and couldn't have picked a better resort. We didn't have any neighbours and therefore... More
