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

The views at the Kala Samui was absolutely breathtaking. The entrance was directly off the side of the highway and didn't give us a really grand entrance feel upon arrival, but once you enter the lobby and see the ocean it really didn't matter. The staff gave us a welcome drink and were really friendly and accommodating. We booked a... More

My fiancé and I went there on holiday in November 2012. The place is really beautiful and very clean and neat. The staff is helpful and eager although only one of them understood English. The town is not as impressive but the accomodation and beach makes up for it. It is also a nice place for young adults to go... More

The hotel is located in a beautiful area and the scenery is wonderful. We had our wedding at the Kala, and it was perfect. The food is very good and the staff tries to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend the Kala to everyone, both for a wedding and for a holiday.

A beatuiful location with very nice facilities. All the rooms had great view. The staff was very helpfull, polite and accommodating. If the hotels activities, such as snorkeling, isn't enough it's only 100 meters to sky gym which is really nice.
