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

She was very prompt with her responses to our enquires and made the planning process an absolute breeze! We are from America so planning a wedding on the other side... 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

The property itself is a perfect blend of rustic charm in tropical hideaway. But like any tropical environment, bugs and insects are a nuisance. The rooms and outdoor areas are swapping with flies and mosquitoes. Quite annoying and distracting. Don't leave your doors and windows open or be prepared to be attacked by flies or all types. The hotel staff... More

My husband and I stayed at The Kala for 3 nights. We arrived around noon time and we were checked in shortly after. We didn't request for a particular room and we were given a room at first floor with the balcony facing the lobby, which we thought lacked a bit of privacy. Perhaps request for a room at upper...

Excellent. But a car or a motorcycle is necessary for to go to the beach and others island tours There are a swimming pool in front of the sea and a good spa. The restaurant is good. There are special nights with special menus and tipical music and dance. The are others activities like boats and scuba diving.
