    Really nice place to stay , friendly staff nice breakfast not a huge selection if your staying a week like we did but that sort of thing doesn’t worry me to much. We had arrived to a room with a tree blocking the unbelievable view which was a massive disappointment but when I asked staff for a possible room change they were more than helpful moving us the following day to room 331 with spectacular views. There is no beach as such but plenty close buy if u don’t hire a bike it could be expensive to move around through the day because there is not a lot close buy. A bike is 150bht a day and a great way to explore. Lastly there are a lot of stairs. Very peaceful and amazing view plus great value

    We booked for a beach-front pool villa for 2 nights. When we arrived we found that the view from our villa is blocked by other villas and trees in front of ours. So there is only a partial sea view unlike we saw in the website. We asked for a better one but there were totally booked on that night. Finally, in the second night, we moved to another villa which had a very stunning sea-view. The foods are quite good.

    The hotel is very beautiful and the view is amazing. However, we were a bit disappointed by our room as we expected to have a private pool with sea view (as shown by the picture) but ou private pool were exposed to the view of other guests and extremely cold because never exposed to the sun. So I recommend this hotel, but no need to take the villa with the private pool (especially regarding the price !!) you can take a classic room and enjoy the common pool (which has a great view).

    PURE BLISS! ”

    My partner and I stayed at The Kala Hotel for 4 nights and were so blown away by our experience there! The views from our room, the pool and even the lobby were beautiful. The hotel was relaxing, quiet and extremely peaceful. The staff were able to assist with anything you needed which made everything very easy. Location is in between the 2 main areas of the island (Chaweng & Lamai) although it was no more than a 10 minute scooter ride each way. If you don’t plan on hiring a scooter you may not find this location ideal as you would have to get a taxi all the time, however we loved being away from the busy areas as we could easily scooter around. Would 100% recommend this hotel!!! It made our stay :)

    Although we really liked this hotel it wasn’t perfect! We saw reviews complaining about the staff, we had no such issue, the staff were fantastic, friendly and couldn’t do enough for us! The breakfast was ok and great you can have it up until 6pm. The view from the hotel and rooms was fantastic. Now to the negatives, the hotel is getting a bit dated, not a huge issue but is what it is! The hotel is right in the middle of the two main strips, there is a shuttle bus but a taxi is needed if the times don’t work!

    We were given a coupon for two free meals, and we asked if we could use them for room service, and when we went to check out they tried to charge us for the meals. The meals were also not made correctly (we ordered vegetarian papaya salad, and they put shrimp in it. The restaurant staff and the hotel staff are separate, and when we tried to correct the error, they got into a big argument in front of us, which struck me as unprofessional and unhospitable. The view and facilities are very nice though. It is a good value for a couple, but not for larger groups.

    Wake Up Call”

    For a hotel on Samui with all the competition, Kala could easily do so much more. Don't go there if you don't like climbing stairs--cliff side, 4 stories and no elevator. They have a white and brown coconut system for housekeeping and privacy but the staff don't seem to understand and don't clean the rooms when the brown coconut is out. The manager on duty treats guests and staff the same way "bossy". The breakfast is over-priced and the bathrooms have no wash clothes or hand towels --and no water sprayer in the shower--just a big shower head the size of a dinner plate that drips from the ceiling--difficult to clean up. Be careful too when the agoda website says breakfast is included--usually not so when you arrive at the hotel.

    We stayed for only two nights but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a corner suite so the sea view was wonderful. The hotel is perched on the cliffs so there really isn't a beach on the property and there are lots of stairs. The breakfast was very good and the staff were all very attentive.

    QUIET PARADISE”

    What a beautiful place! Never ever felt so relaxed, as soon as you arrive you feel you have arrived in heaven, the walk down to the the room(Pool Villa) down several flights of stairs and stone and wooden walkways set in lush tropical gardens was a surprise! As the photos online mainly show damp concrete and peeling paint? The room was spectacular with 180 degree views of the sea and decorated with a shabby chic colonial feel, with no less than 3 showers(I used all of them :-)) with super high pressure, what a pleasure! I'm a greedy person and the a la carte breakfast and in fact all of the food...restaurant and room service was excellent, so after several disappointing meals outside the Hotel, we appreciated and happy with the Hotel offering....which was always presented with lovely cutlery and unusual plates & dishes. If you want a truly relaxing Holiday in quiet, beautiful surroundings with helpful friendly staff this is the place to be...the photos online just do not do it justice!
