The Kala did make our week long tropical island vacation one to remember. We picked this resort based on the fact that it had spectacular views of the ocean being situated on a rock face. That being said, it is located on a very small strip of Samui that is snorkel worthy otherwise you'd have to take a boat out... More

Excellent service: they didn't have our room ready for first night so they put us into one of their villas with private pool. Amazing food-excellent,helpful & friendly staff. Room's are amazing with huge bed and great shower. Perfect location- I believe all the rooms are sea-view.

Very good hotel near Lamai. The service is excellent, Internet worked properly and the view is outstanding. Food price was a little bit expensive compared to normal price in Samui. However it was very tasty. We recommend this hotel, since the service was really the best in Koh Samui, even for Thailand standards, it was better than in Oder many... More

Excellent hotel, lovely setting and facilities. Comfortable rooms, especially the villas with their private pool. Just a few little details could make this resort the absolute perfect place to stay. Would recommend and stay here again

Once you enter the lobby you will realise how hard it is to find someone smiling and most importantly what you asked for in your reservation 4 months before your accommodation. I asked for a direct sea view room which was substituted by a side sea view room,when I asked why didn't I get what I booked for,she said the... More

After deciding that we wanted to get married in Thailand, for just the two of us. The Kala was a place that caters for weddings and they definitely do it well.

However, he did not show up finally, and then when I ask them to leave, then they were willing to heading for hotel. When I just went throught... More
