The hotel does not has its own beach, not in the city area but it is in the middle in between the 2 famous beaches on Samui, Chaweng and Lamai. All rooms are sea-view but to have a better view you have to stay at more higher floor. You can arrange for a candle light dinner on the hotel deck... More

The hotel is located a little away from the bustle and noise of the touristy city areas, is really nice and the rooms are very clean. We were 3 and shared a family suite that has a main bedroom with a double bed and a smaller bedroom with a single bed separated by a Thai style living room (apparently this... More

Beautiful place with excellent service. Great privacy and food! However, like most resorts in Thailand, the staff had poor English speaking skills. Thai resorts really should assess this when employing staff.

the villas are beautiful, the staff friendly, the décor gorgeous. When we arrived our villa was disappointing because we got a second row villa with more than half the view blocked by villas closer to the water. We got a different villa the next day. Very romantic setting! Yod was a great host.

Firstly I need to say that the service in this place was something out of this world! The staff was very friendly and always ready to help. The food was great and we were so thankful for that because we are not huge fans of thai food in general. If you want to go to a place thats going to... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The staff were so friendly. Breakfast was good and the few times we ate at the hotel restaurant the food was very nice. The only thing I would suggest for the rooms is more draw space for clothes. The hotel is not luxury but has an amazing ambiance very serene and quiet perfect for honeymoon couples... More

We stayed at The Kala over New Years for a few nights and were happy with the overall service, the location and the value for money it offers. Located right between Lamai and Chaweng it's in a good location to reach both beaches. The hotel offers a free morning shuttle to Lamai and a free afternoon shuttle to Chaweng, or... More

After enjoying my stay here about 6 years ago I decided to stick with what I knew for a return visit to Koh Samui, I'm so glad I did. The staff are so sweet and friendly. The rooms are spacious, beds super comfy and the views absolutely stunning. We only had breakfasts here so can't comment too much on the... More

This hotel is amazing. It is located between Chaweng and Lamai beach, so both are close. Breakfast is served until 6pm, and is truly a feast. The hotel is so beautiful, and the views are amazing. I legitimately don't think I saw a better hotel on the island.
