“Trip of a lifetime”
Reviewed 10 October 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a place!! Its so hard to sum up just how amazing our 7 day vacation in the Villa Kalyana was.

My husband and I have already been to Koh Samui three times but this stay absolutely topped our expectations and previours stays. We are both big workaholics and 350 days around stress and more stress - so it is even harder for us to disconnect and turn off the work mode. But the beauty of the location and the incredible kindness of the staff put us automatically in the vacation mood.

When we arrived at our villa our jaws literally dropped when we saw the airy and open space which was surrounded by this beautiful turquoise water. Entering the vila itself exceeded our expectations by far - the spacious room with the comfy canopy bed, the authentic decoated interior and my absolute favourite the open air shower (even though there was also the option of using the second rainfall shower inside - a real luxury problem:)) Another highlight was the private beach strip as well as the private swimming pool which was fantastic to take a dip in and cool off in thhe morning before going to breakfast.

The food was simply amazing - Khun Sonja the Hotel Manager stopped by every evening to ensure we get what we want in the morning. We always got the freshest fruits and a beautiful selection of breads, musli, joghurts and soups which lasted us mostly until the evening. Even though we were planning to spend the evenings outside in Chaweng and Lamai we mostly failed to leave the Villa as none of the food came closely to the fresh fish BBQs, the salads, the curries and my abosule favourite "the mango sticky rice".

My husband and i are pretty sporty and enjoy our work outs - being few steps away from the beach the avaialbel kayaks came very handy and gave us the option to discover the close by area. Also the close by temples and the viwing point encourages you to go for strolls and enjoy the nature by feet. Whoever is looking to get a little more of an workout done also has the option of using the Villa's gym.

This has by far been the trip of our lifetime and the hospitality and the attentiveness of the staff was just ridicioulsly wonderful. If you are looking for a quite and relaxing vacation this is your place. We will definately come back.

My blended family of 15 adults and 6 grandchildren had their dream holiday at Villa Kalyana. The occasion was celebrating my 60th birthday and my expectations of the property from the photos on the website were met. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious, there are several areas for different activities, to sit with a quiet book or play cards all together or dance the night away around the pool. The staff were fantastic and provided everything we asked for with a smile. Rebecca, Sonia and Mam organized my birthday party around the pool putting up lights and lanterns and dressed the dining table beautifully, and one for my grand daughter who also had her 5th birthday on our first day, the party lunch for her birthday was a banquet as was every meal the chef cooked the food was outstanding we ended up letting him cook what he decided as we loved all the delicious meals. We had two barbecue meals on the beach which were fantastic and so much fun eating under the stars in warm balmy weather. The pool is huge and perfect for toddlers with shallow parts, the kids played in it all day with all the pool toys provided by the staff. The kids learnt to play pool with the adults and loved it. The bunk room was perfect for the kids aged 9-12yrs. We went kayaking, swam in the sea or just sat on the lounges lover looking the beach had in house massages in the beachside cabanas. The weather was superb the entire 10 days and the palm trees provided just enough shade from the sun. Our family from New Zealand and one couple from Australia loved it so much we hope to return one day. The staff were amazing with the children especially Mam and Sonia. Renaud the Manager was very helpful if something needed attending to. This is one special holiday we will never forget thank you Villa Kalyana and staff.

“Blissful wedding. Unpleasant departure experience”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

A blissful few days celebrating a wedding in this beautiful resort (21 - 25 Sep 2016) came to an ugly end on the last day.

The main wedding party, including the person in charge of the booking, had left several hours before. Before he left I was a party to a conversation the manager about a final amount still owing, about AUD 1000, more than expected, but only 5% of the total bill—the rest had been paid before arrival. The organiser arranged to pay it as soon as he was in Singapore with banking facilities within 24 hours, since he did not have sufficient cash (the resort had previously refused to accept credit cards). The manager accepted this. I have seen a courtesy email that the manager sent to him around that time confirming the amount and asking for prompt payment by bank transfer as agreed.

A short time after they left, we, the wedding guests waiting for the later shuttle bus, were confronted by the manager, demanding immediate payment of the balance owing, on instructions from the owner. My wife and I were particularly targeted. He threatened to detain us and call the police. The manager seemed to be the meat in the sandwich, being overridden by the owner on his previous agreement with the organiser, but he was clearly prepared to carry out the owner's instructions, going against that agreement. I spoke to the owner on the phone. His manner was aggressive and threatening. As wedding guests we had no contract with the resort and had already paid our share of the costs. This was very upsetting.

We were very lucky that another remaining guest was an accountant experienced in international transfers. He offered to make an immediate telegraphic transfer from his own money. The owner took some convincing, still demanding our credit card details. The accountant advised us strongly not to give these. In the end he agreed to the transfer, done in the presence of the manager, and we were allowed to leave.

Another thing that happened was that the room manual clearly stated that a massage was included in the room rate. When we requested this the manager denied that the offer existed. and was annoyed when we wanted to cancel the massage that we had booked.

On the positive side, it is a beautiful resort and the wedding went very well. The housekeeper is a wonderful, kind, efficient, obliging woman and all of the staff were lovely and helpful, if somewhat random. On the day after our arrival most of the guests' rooms were not serviced.

Not much to say about this – After bargaining for the lowest possible rate, the organizer of this group never sent back the signed rental contract, his payments arrived insufficient, they never paid the damage deposit on arrival nor any requested food and beverage deposits and finally they left the Villa without paying the bill- which is unfortunately not acceptable. – The last few remaining guests of the group were asked to settle the bill. After long discussions - they argued not to have a contract with the Villa, after sleeping and eating here for 4 nights… and pretended not to possess a credit card- In the end a credit card was finally produced and the bill settled. Thanks for the unfair review...

“Natural holiday paradise found‘”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Arriving in our this year’s holiday destination on Samui, we were absolutely fascinated: Villa Kalyana emerged from the green coastal jungle of the southern island’s peak like an overwhelming oasis of perfect natural architecture and distinctive Thai design. We have never seen anything like this before. The unique luxury villas, two creatively integrated pool areas and restaurants seem to have somehow grown out of this fertile landscape, with wonderful massive palm trees offering calm shadow and a unique atmosphere. The great architekture follows nature. Every small piece is carefully integrated in the subtropical nature. From the very first moment of our stay, we felt very welcome and happy. The always friendly and open-hearted stuff offered a first class individual service with maximum amount of privacy. There was no “Sorry we do not offer…”. Everything was pleasantly arranged to our full satisfaction at any time. We went there with some of our friends, each family with their kids in different ages…, so you may imagine the wide range of needs and wishes to be matched during our magnificent stay! From delicious food (have their own brilliant cook!) to an attentive room service (with folded laundry and tropical flowers), each piece of puzzle fitted. It was amazing to experience the high flexibility of this luxury resort, which really made it our private paradise. By the way, should you intend to marry at a very special place, this blessed piece of earth is surely one of the best for it. If i had to marry here is the place and nowhere else on this planet!

Stayed there for my nephews wedding, beautiful picturesque place, very expensive though for what we got. They didnt include transfers and we had to pay for the taxi from the airport. Stayed in the bungalow, no tv reception only utube. Nothing in the mini bar, they wouldnt even give us a bottle of wine. Outdoor shower was ankle deep in water that wouldnt drain. Room not even made up daily. The wedding itself was spectacular, outside caterers and event staff hosted the event and did an awesome job.

We are sorry to read you were disappointed with your stay at Villa Kalyana.
There unfortunately appears to have been some miscommunication issues.
We do rent only to groups and not to individual guests. We agree rates for the whole booking, not separate fees for each room. Very expensive for what you got? Your group booked by Scott Thomas, paid only 100 USD per night per guest…?
The lead guest of the group decides which services we provide. We usually provide group transportation and liaise in advance with the lead guest regarding collections, which on this occasion did not include individual airport transfers- the taxi from the airport is however only 25 USD….
The mini bar contents varies for each group as requested; your host choose to purchase their own drinks which leaves the minibars empty, as consumed drinks but would have been charged to the master bill. Some guests prefer not to have any additional charges on their bill, so choose not to have anything in the fridge. We do provide drinking water in the fridge, which is of course free.
As your host decided to purchase Wine and other beverages directly, so we are sorry but we have no responsibility to distribute his provisioning.
Please accept our apologies for the clogged outdoor shower. This resulted from heavy rain and leaf fall during your stay, which would be resolved during the daily room clean. All rooms are of course made up every day but with some guests choosing to lock their rooms.
I'm pleased to hear the wedding was 'spectacular', our location really does provide an idyllic setting for such a special occasion.
I trust my explanation of the points you raised confirms the issue of miscommunication and not a true reflection of the level of service we provide at Villa Kalyana. I will highlight your comments with our housekeeping staff and apologise your experience was not to our usual high standards.

“Our own private paradise”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband & I recently stayed at Villa Kalayana for our wedding. 30 of our closest family & friends and many of their children also stayed in the villa for the week with us and we were all so very impressed.
The villa itself is beyond beautiful. We didn't think it was possible but it was actually more picturesque than the photos on the website by far! Our real own private paradise.
The staff and service they provided throughout our stay was absolutely exceptional. In particular the efforts they went to ensure the children were all looked after, including cuddling them for us at breakfast while the mothers ate their food. All of the staff were honestly so accomodating and friendly. Their english was also great.
The one thing I wish to point out as well was the food and just how amazing and affordable it was! Better then most of our other Thailand dinning experiences by far!
We are so happy we chose to stay at the villa and the only disappointment was that we didn't book to stay longer! We highly recommend it and are all ready planning our next trip back!
