We loved staying at the kala. It was our first holiday together as a couple. All the staff here are amazing and they always greet you when you walk past them. The dinner here was lovely also however was a little bit expensive to eat there every night. But if you eat there you must try the lemongrass ice cream.... More

We stayed at The Kala for 5 nights. Room was spacious with a great view! The staff were friendly and helpful and they made my friend's birthday very special. Breakfast is fabulous and the spicy pomelo salad is a definite must try. Happy hour each day was a blast. Only negative was that the place needs a bit of maintenance.

Also the bath room was ample with a big shower. There is a medium size swimming pool that has been carved in this rocky landscape... More

Commercial areas are only a short shuttle/taxi ride away but we were content to stay in house for the first few nights. Room and views great Restaurant food fresh and tasty Staff always eager to...
