Just back from a 4 D3N stay at the Kala, great place, peacefully, and tranquil, great ocean view, brilliant friendly staff (especially Amy) with great service and very personally friendly. Will definitely return. Food was just average.

Great view but... Mosquitos in room as well as bed bugs made you scratching all night and sleepiness. Asked the hotel for mosquito repellent but it did not work. Dead bodies of mosquitos were seen sticking on wall, with blood stains, and were not cleaned during our 6 day stay. Breakfast was terrible. There is nothing in the omelet but... More

The Kala is located at Chaweng Noi, 10 mins away from main town Chaweng. No worry with the transport, you can choose rent motorbike or rent a car with tour guide! I rent motorbike for 3 days, 350 baht per day. You just tell the staff you want rent motorbike they will arrange for you. We stayed at Kala for... More

The hotel is situated at the higher part of the island and oversees a great view. The interior design is eco-friendly and beautiful. We got a room with great view and it's just breathtaking. The service was generally good and we enjoy the quietness of the low season. The only downside is that you have to get a taxi (or... More

We stayed here for a week in late June and loved it. At first we were worried about proximity to the beach but Silver Beach (best beach on the island) is a short walk or ride away. The staff here are amazing, especially Amy, and the view from the hotel across the bay is amazing. Breakfast was always good. The... More

We checked in late on a Wednesday night and the staff were so welcoming, kind and friendly. The "boutique" resort (it's not a huge place) is very nicely situated on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and is located just south of all the action in Chaweng beach. You can rent motorbikes directly from the front desk(a bit expensive) to get... More

We have just returned from 6 nights at 'the kala'. It is an absolutely pristine view and superb location away from the business and hype of 'cheweng beach' but close enough to get a taxi home for 300 baht. ( there is a free hotel shuttle bus that takes you to one of two beaches daily) but it is your... More

We stayed at Kala for our friends wedding at the near by Sandalwood Hotel and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! We had a bit of problem with our luggage as British Airways had not transferred them onto the flight and the staff at the Kala were so helpful and called the airline for us daily. Nothing was ever...

One of the most beautifull resort to stay in Samui. particulare Thai style, awsome view of the bay from every point of the resort expecially from the room and the private pool. Furnituring are very nice. No noise from the near Chaweng. The restaurant (with an awsome view as allways) has great thai and continental food. But the most important... More
