“Rooms with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The staff were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. Always a pleasure when dealing with them, no matter the issue/query. Breakfast options were varied so you had plenty to choose from each day. Food was delectable in its entirety. No matter which room you stayed in there is always a beautiful view. And the beds were huge! Highly recommend this hotel. Stayed there because of a wedding we attended and the staff outdid themselves there. They certainly know how to put on a wedding! I don't think anything is out of their scope. It was the most fairy tale venue imaginable.

Lovely hotel and well worth the costs. My husband got sick and was hospitalised while we were on honeymoon. The staff at the Kala showed such warmth and kindness to me through it all. Felt like home away from home when I really needed a shoulder to lean on. Thank you to managemnt and all wonderful staff, especially reception and the restaurant. We will be back for our 1st wedding anniversary.

We stayed at the Kala for 6 days in Marchand were very impressed by the location and the standard of service.The best thing about the hotel was the view...absolutley stunning at all times. The room was very spacious and well equipped , the bathroom was especially high in standard.We really enjoy the stay with all their facilities they provide like kayaking to the nearby beach, swimming in the infinity pool, having the massage in the SPA.

Food in the restaurant was nice and reasonably priced. The service was always friendly and efficient.

Overall we were very happy with the experience and felt that the price was justified.

We've just been back from our fantastic holidays in Thailand and i can't miss to write about this hotel. All place is like a fairy tale, done in traditional thai style. Rooms are very clean and very nice decorated . View is wonderful and in the evening you can see all the lights of the island. Breakfast is very simple but nice. Pool not big but we loved to stay there rather than going to the beach.

My girlfriend and I spent four nights at The Kala this week (feb/mar). It was fantastic. Great staff, great service and really beautiful rooms. Definitely recommended. not right in town but then you only need to pay 200bt to get pretty much anywhere. The pool is delightful as well as the cocktails.

Thank you Kala staff

Lovely place! Although most staff struggled to communicate due to poor english,they were very friendly and made us feel very welcome! The food was excellent but I feel that the waiters are not totally up to scratch and could work on their service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
