My girlfriend and I stayed at the hotel towards the End of March, Our first impressions of the Hotel were extremely positive from the breath taking views as you arrive and travel down the 20 odd stairs to reception. We were then greeting at reception with a welcome drink a nice touch after a long commute, however the welcome drink...

The pros: Stunning location, interesting architecture The Cons: The hotel is worn, not super clean, the towels are literally frayed and thread-bare. - Not all rooms have an ocean view. Our first room had a balcony over-looking the restaurant, which was not at all private and was loud. A lot of the other ones seemed to have no privacy. -The...

The pool area and sun loungers is lovely with a great view of the ocean and island. There are two good beaches a 5 minute walk either side of...

The views are incredible and the reception staff were friendly with good English....

This is my second time staying in the KaLa Samui. The first time everything was good. The second time the reception staff are so unprofessional, speak bad English and even shouted at the customers like they are the boss. Her attitude was so bad, and she was trying to make money by herself by lying that I need to pay...

We had horrible experience in this hotel, First of all, the service was terrible, mainly at breakfast which is partially served and not buffet (you rally have to grab a waiter to get something to eat). Dishes were never served as described, and the size of the portion is ridiculously small. The watermelon juice had bad sour taste. Secondly, we...

Stayed for 10 nights whilst attending a wedding on the island. Quite a small hotel and the wedding party pretty much took over the hotel which was very nice. Lovely room with beautiful views. Housekeeping very good. Overall staff very friendly and helpful. Tended to eat out in the evenings but enjoyed a pretty good breakfast every day. Breakfast was...

The main building's back wall is literally right next to the main road, so the noise of traffic is unbearable. There is no beach at all, you have to walk along the main road for 5 min. There are 4 umbrellas around the pool and they are always busy. My booking said breakfast included, but its not on the 1st...
