A restoring experience. The hotel is situated on a very peaceful location on top of rocks over the sea, far from the noises of Chaweng but still a short trip to either there or the even closer Lamai. Given that it is smaller than many other resorts in Samui, and due to its relatively isolated location, it is less crowded... More

I think we had the best room, with breathtaking views. Very clean and tidy, Internet not so good in the room but works outside okay, we feel a bit hounded by the staff, but they was only trying to be nice, breakfast was nice. I would go back there again.

Stayed 2 nights in August at a supposedly heavily discounted rate from Agoda. The Kala was pretty good for the price we paid. Helpful staff, good clean room, GREAT views, meals nice although i think you would tire of the brekky menu after a few days. Would have been a bit unhappy ( and stupid) if i had paid the... More

Our family of 5 (children aged 8, 6,3) stayed at the Kala for 7 nights in July this year and had a lovely time. We stayed in the Presidential villa but it wasn't really suitable for our young family with the two bedrooms separated and the pool in the middle. The staff were helpful and moved all the beds into... More

Stayed here for 6 nights as a group of 3 couples. We all had rooms next to each other which made everything easier. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect - they carried our luggage down all the stairs, our rooms were beautiful with million dollar views. We had the basic rooms 221-223 and they were perfect. Views of... More

Mixed reviews for this resort, but we booked it anyway based on the website pics. Stayed in room 101, duplex pool villa. "Rustic" as others have said, to be "realistic" they probably "need a bit of work" though. Still ok coz its built on a cliff so great view of the bay and chewang beach. Lots of steps. Staff were...

We stayed 6 nights at the Kala in a pool villa. Cannot fault the views spectacular, rooms were clean and spacious. There are lots of stairs to negotiate but the property is built on a cliff to make the most of the views so its a bit of a trade off. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The... More

We was back for few days to The Kala and all was perfect like the last time. Service is verry professionnal, people all time smilling, and thanks to the manager to arrange for us the same bedroom. Bedrooms are verry confortable, the view to the sea is just amazing, queen size or kingsize beds. The breakfast is delicious and you... More

Great place to stay for those who want a little privacy with great views. City is not far (not walking distance). If you want to stumble home drunk every night/morning then go somewhere else and keep this place safe for those enjoying Samui's finer moment.

We have just left our duplex pool villa and wish we were still there. The resort is beautiful- spectacular views that can't be beaten. They even have their own deck situated with unobstructed views of the ocean. The room itself was beautiful- stone bathtub unground, huge stone shower with window overlooking the private pool-leafy garden. The bed was giant and... More
