I recently stayed at the villas with a group of close friends for my birthday and the villas couldn't have been nicer. Beautiful apartments, amazing pool, and a stretch of beach all your own right on the other side of the gate. I can't wait to come back!

Went as a group of 8 friends to Villa Kalista for 2 nights. We had rooms in Villa 2 and Villa 3. Overall we had a fantastic experience - the villas are modern, beautifully designed and extremely clean. Food was very good especially considering half our group were vegetarian. Staff were on hand to take care of us round the... More

Unfortunately, I only had the chance to stay in the villas for 2 nights, but was floored away by the beauty of the villas and will absolutely return. There are 5 villas on the property, each with 3 rooms. I went with a group and was lucky enough to stay in the master bedroom, which had an amazing deck overlooking... More

The reception as we were introduced to the rooms was amazing..the cool madafus! The master bedroom was awesome..the jacuzzi being the highlight! The food was amazing especially the fact that we picked our own menus..even my 6 month old baby was catered for..a great get away for both families and friends..

Our group of 19 had 8 young children, 16 from the whole group were vegetarians. Everyone was well catered for through our entire stay.... More

My 7 day stay was very satisfying at Villa Kalista. The ambience, privacy and quiet in the backdrop of an infinity pool, white beach and ocean was an experience to look forward to. The rooftop 360 degree views and dinning was a nice way to end a day. The chef and his meals endeared me to this place even more.... More

I visited Kalista during my friends wedding. The hotel pool is magnificent, the rooms are large and well equipped, the food exceptional. It is a bit far removed and the road to te villa is rough but all worth it.
