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... More

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... More

We chose The Kala for the first three days of our honeymoon to relax and unwind before exploring the island. We booked through the hotel website and got the luxury package which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and daily spa included in the price. And it was totally worth it! From day one the staff were always extremely friendly and... More

After booking confirmation, I sent several emails to the hotel to arrange for airport transfer but there was no reply from them. Hence I called Expedia for help. Expedia called the hotel directly to relay my request. Hotel staff at the Front Desk said that they could not access the emails sent to Reservations & provided another email add. While... More

The rooms are beautiful architecturally, yet need a general facelift. The curtains are threadbare and the towels in the rooms and at the swimming pool are not of a good standard. The breakfast is very mediocre and corners have been cut in terms of quality. The other meals were of a good standard and tasty, yet pricey.

The hotel have great views but than again most of hotels on koh samui have great views. The breakfast is completely useless. The rooms are very small and the beach itself is very dangerous as there are a lot of rocks. The wifi is completely useless in the rooms and only works in the lobby.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights.
