“Stunning Wedding Setting!”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of holding our wedding at this stunning venue. The private beach, the beautiful pool and the stunning gardens truly made our wedding setting complete.

We rented out the entire place and had our bridal party and close family and friends join us for the lead in and post wedding festivities. The rooms are extremely spacious and clean and all have a pool and beach view. The Villa is extremely private and secluded and you honestly feel like it is your own little paradise. Is there life outside the Villa? Oh apparently! But we were more interested in relaxing by the gorgeous pool or swinging in the hammock or chilling out on the lounges. The staff were absolutely amazing. They truly looked after us and attended to all of our needs. Ma and, Sonya were extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. We held a post wedding brunch and they ensured our drinks were icy cold and also laid out a beautiful brunch for our guests.

Alexa Champion was responsible for the wedding planning and she was nothing short of AMAZING! Alexa’s bright and bubbly personality is what attracted us from the get go and upon meeting her for the first time on skype, my husband and I had no doubt she was the right person to plan our wedding day! She is nothing but patient, supportive, helpful, organized and truly lovely to deal with. No matter what your query, gripe, frantic freak out, nothing is too much trouble for Alexa and she has the amazing ability to be calm in any situation. Alexa coordinated our entire day from early in the morning till all hours of the wee morning! She was extremely calm, helpful, and bubbly and so well prepared and organized that I literally had nothing to worry about on the day! It truly was well organized and seamless. Her attention to detail is impeccable and not a thing I asked for was missed. If there were any issues on the day, my husband and I were certainly oblivious. When I stepped out onto the lawn to approach my husband on the beach, I was absolutely blown away by Alexa’s creativity. She had literally taken our vision out of heads and laid it before us! We felt truly blessed to have Alexa in charge of our planning. She was amazing on every level and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.

We used the Villa's Chef for our wedding meal and he did a wonderful job of preparing a Thai Family Style meal that all of our guests could share at their tables. Our guests commented on what a beautiful meal it was and loved the shared style idea.

We had a truly wonderful time at Villa Kalyana and having not had the opportunity to see it before the wedding, were overwhelmed by what an amazing setting it was...truly perfect!

We have emailed the owner about some minor maintenance issues at the villa that they need to get on to but given how great everything else is this was a minor thing.

Highly recommended for either a wedding or just a wonderful holiday..

Recently we had our destination wedding at Villa Kalyana, wow, what an amazing venue! Alexa, the wedding planner organised everything for us, down to every tiny detail, and took all the stress out of arranging a wedding. It was just perfect, the rooms are amazing, the setting and location are stunning and the team at Villa Kalyana were very accomodating and attentive. Our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had been to. Thank you to all the staff at Kalyana and especially Alexa, we have some very special memories from our wedding day and would love to come back one day!

“Welcome to paradise”
Reviewed 30 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

End of April we organized our yearly company outing at Villa Kalyana with approx 25 people. We enjoyed three great days in this paradise with calm white beach and great salt water pool landscape. All villas were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed lunch and dinner and all served food - either Thai food or their home made Pizza - was very tasty and well done. Villa Kalyana is well equipped with billiard and entertainment electronics so you can have a great time at this secluded place. It's 30 minutes away from the northern nightlife hot spots so it rather feels like you stay on your own island. A perfect location for company gatherings or weddings.

“Incredible, Beautiful, luxurious”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

I was lucky enough to stay here for a wedding in February. It was probably one of the highlights of my life so far, we had been looking forward to it for over a year and when we arrived it blew away all of our expectations. The villa was luxurious, the isolation and privacy was amazing, the pool and lounge/dining areas were open and had stunning views.

What topped it off was the service, the staff were amazing.
From the cleaners right up to the villa manager and villa owner were all approachable and willing to help and have a chat. Two ladies in particluar Mam & Sonya were incredible with our kids and all of the guests at the villa.

I will be going back there in future for sure!!

“Expectations versus reality”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

It's always a little nerve racking seeing photos of a hotel or resort on the Internet and wondering how it will actually be when you arrive...Well. We walked into Villa Kalyana and were absolutely blown away. The photos don't actually do the villa justice....it is absolutely incredible. We have travelled to many places in the world and this would be the most impressive, luxurious idyllic places we have stayed.

We booked about 5 days for our wedding in February 2015. We had 19 guests and everyone was so impressed with Villa Kalyana, we couldn't fault it.

The staff - wow! You will never meet a more friendly, helpful, genuine bunch of people. Mam and Sontaya were absolutely amazing running the day to day for us and everyone was sad to say bye to them. Nothing was a problem, they were so attentive. Fantastic people. Renaud was also very on hand and there to help whenever needed. Peter, the owner, popped in on our first night to say hello and then again the morning we left. A nice personal touch and a very genuine guy.

The accommodation was astounding...beautifully finished and to every detail. Our guests couldn't get over the beauty of it all.

The food - a huge thank you to the head chef for preparing the most amazing food we have ever had. It well and truly exceeded our expectations. We had a BBQ the day after our wedding and asked Villa Kalyana to organise it. We literally thought they would have a Weber with some sausages, bread and paper plates. Well - we walked outside and the beach had been turned into a dining room setting, the chef was preparing fresh food next to us, we were drinking fresh coconut water and out of real coconuts, the salads, meat, prawns, fish, sausages were so delicious and all of our guests were blown away.

The location was perfect for us because we had just spent a few days in bustling Bangkok and the commercial side of Samui Island, then to come down to the south where Villa Kalayan is was perfect. So tranquil, private, quiet and relaxing.

We had actually hired a jeep incase we needed transport but there was a 15 seater minivan that was at the Villa all day for you when needed - everything was laid on!

Our wedding day was incredible and I truly believe the staff at Villa Kalyana topped it and made it what it was.

Thank you to Peter, Renaud, Sontaya and Mam (camp mothers), and all the chefs and maids - you guys made it happen for us. A huge well done to you all.

I think we need to organise a reunion at Villa Kalyana.

Lots of love
Jenna & Craig

“SWYoga's fabulous retreat to Villa Kalyana!”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I have recently returned from Villa Kalyana where I ran a Yoga retreat for 24 ladies in January - I cannot recommend the villa and staff highly enough, nothing was too much trouble for them and their attention to detail faultless. Delicious food cooked in house, endless sunshine, a purpose built Yoga shala (and hopefully a promise to build a second next to the beach!) and friendly happy staff made this a trip which I will definitely repeat.

“Beautiful home!”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

18 family members stayed at this home over the Christmas New Year period.
We represented 4 generations and ranged in age from 79 to 3 years old.
The 10 bedrooms worked fabulously. We particularly loved the beach bungalows and the master bedroom. However the connecting double rooms worked well for our teenagers and the younger ones loved the bunk bed rooms.

Some negatives:
The weather was grey on many days with some pouring rain for short periods.
The sea was a bit rough in the beginning. Would have been helpful to have water shoes because of the coral for getting into the sea.
As the head chef is European it was difficult to get him to understand we wished to dine on largely on Thai foods. We finally managed to get some great Thai food but it was not as easy as it should have been.
Those with allergies beware as the staff although they tried to make an effort, lacked the most fundamental understanding of allergies. For instance the broths all contained gluten from the MSG used in the packages of broth.
Distance to nightlife.

The positives:
Fantastical easy going nice staff - once they understood nothing was too much trouble. They even put up a spot light for my mother to do a puzzle.
Beautiful property.
Lovely relaxing areas by the pool, upstairs on the verandas
Massages at the house next to the sound of waves.
