We had a duplex spa villa overlooking the ocean. Well worth paying the extra. Villa is two storey with your own plungepool underneath. Did a cooking class that was fantastic. 10 minute taxi ride to Chaweng Beach or Lamai so a little more isolated than staying at Chaweng Beach but worth it for the views. Although not on beach it...

A restoring experience. The hotel is situated on a very peaceful location on top of rocks over the sea, far from the noises of Chaweng but still a short trip to either there or the even closer Lamai. Given that it is smaller than many other resorts in Samui, and due to its relatively isolated location, it is less crowded...

I think we had the best room, with breathtaking views. Very clean and tidy, Internet not so good in the room but works outside okay, we feel a bit hounded by the staff, but they was only trying to be nice, breakfast was nice. I would go back there again.

Our family of 5 (children aged 8, 6,3) stayed at the Kala for 7 nights in July this year and had a lovely time. We stayed in the Presidential villa but it wasn't really suitable for our young family with the two bedrooms separated and the pool in the middle. The staff were helpful and moved all the beds into...

Stayed here for 6 nights as a group of 3 couples. We all had rooms next to each other which made everything easier. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect - they carried our luggage down all the stairs, our rooms were beautiful with million dollar views.

Mixed reviews for this resort, but we booked it anyway based on the website pics. Stayed in room 101, duplex pool villa. "Rustic" as others have said, to be "realistic" they probably "need a bit of work" though. Still ok coz its built on a cliff so great view of the bay and chewang beach. Lots of steps. Staff were...
