Fantastic food/service Room was stunning, some updates to the hotel are definitely needed. Only complaint is that our infinity pool could not be used because it was freezing. If they could update it with heaters it would be perfection. Would love to be back and visit

My boyfriend & I stayed here in May 2013 for 4 wonderful nights. We stayed in the pool Villa, which was great. Bathroom was outside our room, which was amazing, I loved it. The resort staff were very polite and helpful. The breakfast buffet was great. We will definitely be going back for our honeymoon!

The Kala was an amazing venue to hold our wedding ceremony and reception with our family and friends. It was an amazing backdrop, with beautiful views from our rooms and on the day. With an old world charm, keeping the Thai influence it was an amazing place to have our destination wedding. The food and drinks were amazing - fresh... More

We had an amazing stay at the Kala, beautiful location with stunning views. The staff are very friendly and accomodating although there is a bit of a language barrier. Prices are high and menu is very limited. Not suited for a young family as it is located on the side of a mountain so a lot of steps and no... More

This hotel is nice and the staff are friendly but there is a big language barrier. Normally we are not fussed because we are in their country but this was extra difficult trying to communicate simple things. You can hire a kayak and fishing equipment however we would not stay here again. The hotel is inbetween lamai and cheweng but... More

Our stay at the Kala was very relaxing. It's the peregct location to get away from it all and forget about life back at home for a few days. The staff are incredibly friendly and although English is a little patchy they were very accommodating and helpful. The spa treatments were lovely and the food also very nice. We got... More

We stayed here in the second week of our holiday. The staff were fabulous, really friendly and accommodating. The rooms were really nice, clean, spacious and we had a fabulous view from our balcony.

A beautiful experience from the very beginning!! From walking in to the amazing view of the sea and islands ahead to the very helpful and respectful service of the staff. One of the staff members Yod was exceptionally brilliant. It didn't take us long to relax into things in our own duplex pool villa and it was always nice after... More
