"Really nice quaint hotel"
Great location in between Chaweng and Lamai, with it being on a cliff be prepared for plenty of steps. We Stayed in a duplex villa and couldn't wish for anymore the views were sepctacular and everything in the room felt luxury. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. One thing I would check if you are in the Villa looking over the edge if you are a light sleeper check when the full moon is as just before the waves were crashing against the rocks as soon as it passed it was so calm.
"The view is specticular"
The View is so nice that you don't want to leave the room. Not very sure about other rooms but the room I stay in was on the second level so the view was not blocked, the room was big and bed was comfortable. breakfast options was a bit limited but still that wasn't a big deal for me. In the middle of Chaweng and Lamai , I rent a car so location wasn't an issue for me. I traveled as a couple so it's romantic, quiet which is suitable for me. Don't expect bars and restaurants around the area but take those could be reached by 5-10 mins taxi ride.
"Great view and lovely staff"
We loved the view and the pool area, we had a really great time at the Kala, loved our room and massive bathtub! The view from the room was amazing. Such a great spot! The staff were friendly and helpful and over all we had a really good experience. Loved the coconut body wash and that coconut jam! We had to take some of that home! We were a little disappointed with some of the food, a lot of the food was great though. I think fresher ingredients and correct use of terms for ingredients would help. For example: We ordered a pizza with prosciutto but it was just ham, if we'd known it was ham it wouldn't have been a let down. We loved the spa and had great massages there. My partner said his massage was the best he had all trip and we had a few! We took advantage of their special offer half price discount which was really good, I wouldn't pay much more than this if I stayed again though. Thanks Kala for a great experience :)
"Peaceful retreat with great view"
I chose the Kala samui from a recommendation from somebody who knows Thailande very well. first off the booking was made via the hotel directly and they were very quick to respond and we agreed on the room I wanted. payment was processed securely online and when reception by the hotel was perfect. A personal SUV from the Kala was dispatched for the pick up at the airport and we had a very nice ride with romantic songs to the resort. We really felt like Vips, which was not a bad thing you can assume ! ;D Anyways, we arrived all dreamy and with high expectations. check in was quick and we had a tour of the hotel. One thing shocked me : NO MOSQUITO! we spent two weeks there and I can count on one hand the number of flies I've seen. Needless to say, very very impressive for Thailande and believe me I go there every year... The Kala is a very nice small (count 20 rooms tops) hotel on the rocky side of Koh samui. Think quirky with a touch of luxury and quietness. breakfast is a la carte and not a buffet. it is not too bad. Honestly, food is alright, not amazing but alright. Swiming pool is not very big but has a very nice view on the ocean. The room was a deluxe. nice and comfortable. not huge but enough. the bathroom had a nice bathtub with a possibility to open wooden windows to have the nice view of the ocean whilst having a smooth bath. Apart from a few of them, who had an advanced English level, most of the staff can just barely hold a basic conversation. We enjoyed very much our stay and would definitely recommend and go back there. Thank you Kala
"Awesome Villa stay, totally let down by the food"
Only rated 3 stars due to the food. If just based on our stay in the room - it's an easy 5 stars. We stayed in the presidential villa as a treat for the end of our holiday in Thailand. The room was fantastic with an amazing view and a superb, small, private infinity pool. The bed and pillows offered a superb night's rest. The shower and room facilities/décor etc were all super. Again - this is just based on the presidential villa suite. I didn't see other rooms there. The restaurant though is an over priced disaster zone! Offering small portions and substandard quality. My friend tried a burger for lunch which got served with the plastic cellophane around the burger!!! How on earth can you cook a burger with cellophane on and not notice ''' We still got charged for this meal and got offered 3 small pieces of fruit by way of apology. As per other reviews, the breakfast is rubbish. The meals at night were also below par for the rest of Koh Samui and twice the price. The staff were friendly and could all mostly understand English well. There were no communication issues as per other reviews. The WiFi also worked very well in the room. So I can only presume previous issues were sorted since. I can't say that I would stay here again, although I would stay in that presidential villa again as it was 'that good'. It's a shame there's nowhere else in walk-able distance outside the hotel for alternative food choices etc (Obviously not an issue if you have your own transport or don't mind the over priced taxi's)
