The Kala is a wonderful hotel! I really enjoyed my stay there; the view of the ocean was beautiful, great breakfast food, my room was very clean and the staffs were all very well mannered and friendly! Not to mention the unique decors, due the coconut shell theme! My family and I loved The Kala.

I arrived just after 2 in the afternoon from the Airport and was greeted by the very friendly Amy who worked on the reception desk, from the start she was always smiling and had a very upbeat personality which is hard to find these days. Lucky for me I got a... More

Amazing breath taking views, cozy rooms with plenty of charm and the real feeling of being in Thailand. This small beautiful hotel is located about 20 minutes from the airport and near to many beaches and restaurants. The breakfast is average and can get boring after the first few days. Lot's of stairs as it built on the side of... More

The Kala was for me and my girlfriend the perfect little piece of heaven, for us to really relax and enjoy each other and the beautiful island of Samui. The service standards are high at The Kala, there was everything we needed (pools, views, kajaking, snorkling, VERY TASTY FOOD, views, views, views, peace) and the staff was very helpful and... More

My friend and I was were there last weekend for 2 nights.

We were at this hotel for only one night and were blown away by the standard of service and cleanliness. The rooms were really well designed and stayed very cool even in the tropical heat outside. We both wished we had more time to sit around the pool or paddle the kayaks in the bay. The food was okay, would... More

We opted for one of the seven one-bedroom villas with a private pool. Room 101 has magnificent views over the turquoise ocean to the busy lights of Chaweng. It also is on the end of the row so is more private and the open-air rainfall shower was very impressive. The private pool is actually on the lower level below the... More
