About a year ago we starte looking for a wedding resort on Koh Samui. We heard about The Kala from an Australian wedding singer who had played over there many times and made the recommendation. We touched base with 5 popular wedding resorts with no set budget so options were open. In the end The Kala was an easy decision.... More

All rooms have a beautiful view by the sea. The whole hotel emanates relaxation, from the decoration to the infinity pool. Rooms are a good size with a wonderful rain shower. The beds are a little hard but comfortable enough. The staff are really friendly and will go out of their way to help you. The breakfast was tasty and... More

We stayed at the Kala for 4 nights at the end of July and boy was it great! As soon as we got there the staff were lovely to us and we had a woman take us to our room and show us where everything was etc, she was lovely! Free kayak, snorkelling etc was a bonus. The view was... More

We stayed in this resort for 3 days(two rooms) and our experience was really good. Located at peaceful place, the ocean is accessible from right behind the hotel. They also offered free Kayaking and fishing (though we didn't avail any). Swimming pool is very very good. Good for beginners. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Rooms also had balcony where you...

We stayed in the Kala for a week in the 2nd week of July with our four and a half year old boy. What a wonderful, relaxing stay it was. The resort is beautifully perched up a hill which allow great views of the bay from almost any part of the resort. The accommodation has a very old world charm... More

Months of cautious searching and scrutiny lead me to a new concept of Boutique hotel. Being our first trip to Thailand, we started with high expectations. "The Kala" went way beyond the word "Satisfaction". Right from the entry gate that was so beautifully crafted with a glimpse of the placid ocean in the background to the ever smiling and co... More

We loved our time staying here, with absolutely stunning views to wake up to, plenty activities on offer and wonderful staff! We decided to go with a private villa on our stay, which we must say is definitely worth it. We stayed in room 101, which had breathtaking front row views, private pool, spacious and was the only villa with... More

I was traveling solo and was wanting a nice cozy place to chill out in. I wanted to avoid any party life and all that comes with it in Thailand. This place was perfect. The staff were friendly. I didnt feel pressured to purchase anything from them. They all seemed willing to go out of their way for me. The... More

We stayed here for 6 nights during our two week honeymoon in Thailand. Let me just say that the hotel itself is gorgeous. The rooms are stunning as are the views. We loved the pool (so luxurious!) and the grounds in general. The bathroom was probably the most incredible I've ever seen. HUGE two person tub and awesome shower. I... More
