Loved my time at this resort. The pool was great, the view was amazing and the staff excellent especially the lovely man at reception. We visited The Kala as a group of 5 people and we had 3 rooms. Everything was better than advertised. I contacted them after our visit as I thought I had left something in my room.... More

Sawatdee! The Kala is a beautiful boutique hotel with wonderful attentive staff. During my stay Fern, Yod and the staff helped to arrange a perfect proposal with couples spa and dinner on the rocks. The ladies at the spa were amazing, the pamper packages are well worth it. The dinner on the rocks, although we encountered some stormy weather, was... More

Beautiful 3 day stay in a great hotel, rooms are perfect size and the bathtub is itself a selling point based on size, kayaking is free to use to get to the beach and the infinity pool is perfect. All staff are helpful and happy

The Kala is a boutique hotel with 38 rooms positioned peaceful between Chaweng and Lamai. A taxi or private car needed for visiting the towns and close-by restaurants. The 26th degree restaurant on site serves fusion food at very reasonable price compared to restaurants in Chaweng and the food was fine quality but it is not exciting. The hotel offers... More

I've spent a fair amount of time in Thailand, and I know that always expecting great customer service will leave you disappointed... That's not why people visit this great country. For our wedding however I wanted to make sure that my wife got everything she wanted and that it wasn't stressful getting it. There are numerous beautiful places on koh... More

The Kala Samui is the perfect resort. I honestly wonder if those who gave it fewer than 5 stars stayed in the same resort I did. We were in a duplex pool villa and every time we looked out a window or went down to the pool we had to pinch ourselves. It's a rare paradise. The wood and stone... More
