Our stay at Villa Kalista was absolutely lovely. I was impressed by the personalized service from Om, Roni and the rest of the team. The seafood was fresh and delectable, especially the lobster. I think I have definitely put on some pounds on this trip. The water temperature in the pool is just right and the rooms are spacious, with a good view of the beach.Additionally, one does not get the artificial feeling of a huge resort but instead feel like you are in a haven of tranquility.
The only thing I can mention, is the beach is a little rocky. Do carry a pair of shoes with tough soles if you go swimming during high tide
