My husband and I stayed four nights over the Chinese New Year week. Biggest plus here is the food. Most fruits, vegetables and herbs the chef uses are literally picked-from-their-own garden fresh, and the homemade ice cream is simply the best we have ever tasted. (I was a magazine food critic for ten years in the USA). The staff is... More

However, I have to... More

We stayed at the Kala just before Christmas and loved the hotel. Rooms are fab with sea views and a lovely bath. Everything has a personal style, not at all like the bigger hotels where everything is all the same. Food was lovely and there's a wonderful sun deck overlooking the sea. I read the comments about the steps before... More

My wife and I stayed at The Kala for a week in February and enjoyed this rather charming hotel and its friendly staff a great deal. Situated a 10 minute taxi ride for the bustle of Chaweng it is a peaceful retreat with stunning views across the sea. There is a private beach cove 50 metres from the complex that... More

This is a hotel like none other. It's amazingly antique with old rustic furniture which gives it a very different charm as compared to other modern hotels. Room The rooms are splendid, big and airy. We stayed in a duplex pool villa which was out of the world. It was too stories and had a private infinity pool at the... More

My husband and I chose The Kala as our second hotel after The Mantra. Overall, I think it was okay. The room is very nice, but the curtain was very annoying as it's stuck and we end up covered the window with a towel. And i think mostly for Asian people, we usually use pipes at home. And since the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Kala from January 20-25th this year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The resort is gorgeous and the views are stunning. It is true that the resort doesn't have its own beach, but the pricing clearly reflected that as we compared the price to beach resorts of the same caliber. Also, you can walk... More
