My daughter was married at Kanda this week and it turned into the wedding of her dreams. It was a wonderful experience working with Monette, the wedding planner. She was very professional and attended personally to every little detail, from a tasting of the menu to a romantic dinner for the couple the night before the wedding. The food was... More

I wanted to book a villa which can house 4 adults in Ko Samui and Kanda Residences came up in my search. It was not too expensive and had all the requirements I was looking for - hotel amenities, seaview, close to town and a private pool. The price listed at the hotel's own website was even better and that... More

The service at this resort was top-notch. Staff were friendly, gave us personalized attention and helpful. The rooms were fabulous. The villa with a private pool, separate rooms and a large living-dining-kitchen area were great for all of us. Our kids got up in the morning and jumped right in the pool. We liked being away from the noisy, crowded... More

We booked a two bedroom villa and on arrival were told we had been upgraded to a three bedroom villa but we were not allowed to use the third bedroom and the door had been locked. Why upgrade us only to lock off the additional facility? We had two adult children and a room for each of them would have... More

We spent 10 days, relaxing with friends, great set up, accommodations are great for groups & families having separate pavilions. Spent many afternoons in our private pool. The facilities are fantastic, and all of the staff were very friendly and accommodating to our requests. Would highly recommend. We will definitely return for another visit.
