We simply loved it. From the warm personal greeting, cool towels and cold welcome drink at the front desk, to the spacious modern room with the large spa bath (for two) in one corner ...the Kalima delivered even more than we were promised. I am often disappointed when reviews are written only by the critical to critique everything. This is Thailand!!! For the surprisingly affordable room rate and the 5 star promise...maybe travelers should take things a little more in stride. Our room didn't have a view and we didn't expect one but the large windows and the landscape around the room and its balcony created a lovely oasis and a real sense of tropical privacy. We loved the creative room lighting, the walk in shower and the huge comfy bed!!! The breakfast buffet was excellent. (The service is random but as it is a buffet...just roll with it.) They actually reset our table when we went back for 2nds and we ended up at a different table. It was rather funny. All other service was fantastic and above expectation. They even booked a dentist for us and the price and service were more than satisfactory.
Relax a little, lighten up and enjoy!!! The Kalima is well worth the money.
