Nice do private space”
Have lots of facilities in the resorts with much fun
Good atmosphere hotel”
Last time that I went there, it was on Songkran Holiday so there are many guests and staff could not take care them all. For my group, I didn't get welcome drink and I checked in late almost 2 hours because they could not clear the room for last guest on time. I'm understand but just a bit thing that staff didn't know how to treat guest who're waiting. First they told me that please wait 30 minute but no one called me then I had to ask by myself and the answer is the room is not ready please keep waiting more. I'm Okay for the time but one thing staff should keep attention to us. And I had to ask by myself twice. Only apologized but no complimentary or even welcome drink. They just kept us waiting at the coffee shop. No inform no manage guest feeling. BTW, about hotel is good. proper for vacation, relax in the hotel. Food quite expensive compare with quantity. I suggest to find the nearby local restaurants. it's much better.
The best resort we’ve ever stayed at ”
Can not fault this resort at all. The Ambience of even the bedrooms make you want to book for longer It is that good and pleasing
excellent for young children”
very nice facilities - and a lovely children's play area for kids to play.
Location is amazing away from busy town, beaches are idilic. The hotel has lovely pools the infinity pool has views of the estuary where you can canoe and catch some elephants bathing. Rooms are really good very large beds, very clean. All the staff are always happy and work very hard to give you a good vacation. We are here for few weeks so very happy we made the choice to stay here.
Perfect soft landing in Thailand”
Super friendly and helpful staff, super beautiful rooms and pool - access every time of day! The gym and yoga classes are super cool bonus and shuttle bus drives you comfortably to and from local cities. Definitely recommend!
Peaceful and luxorious place”
+ peaceful atmosphere + Fantastic breakfast + friendly staff + pool area and especially children pool + spacious villas with private pool - expensive restaurants and spa services - no other services near resort (7 km to Khao Lak)
Awsome beauty ”
Very lovely hotel & view. Good room service
un tres bel hotel tout neuf”
great great hotel with lots of commodities, a wonderful swimming pool by the bar, an access to beach a bit off ; no shadow on the beach but very nice the rooms are amazing the swimming pools by the room need the trees to grow up to give more privacy, the beds are super spacious and comfortable last but not least ; the staff is extremely nice and service oriented
kind staffs were willing to meet customer's need, but they need to improve communication skill. room condition was not perfect, especially in bathroom. the drainage was poor. the whole resort needs time to get settled but it was quietly and clean, Breakfast was good and my family and I enjoyed our stay.
Not as it appears to be”
Quite disappointed with almost everything about this resort. I don't like leaving "bad" reviews but basic things are not met at this resortI have been 3 star hotels with better service and more professional approach so this is not even close to 5 star. Kalima is dark coloured new and unfinished resort which has been opened in the rush. Staff are nice people but apart from only few they are not trained at all. Basic housekeeping and room cleaning is happening only if you beg for it or if you catch and bribe the cleaners. If you're lucky room will be serviced at 5-6pm or even later. Lock on the terrace door was not in function and never been fixed in 7 days we have stayed at the hotel. Location is quite remote from Khao Lak , they say 3.5km but its more 7-8km. We had the car so didn't have problem but if you are without own transport you will end up paying a lot for taxi as hotel shuttle runs only 3 times per day. Lots of mosquitos in the resort as it's located by the river.
Nice place ”
Love this resort.
Utterly disappointed and betrayed ”
This is supposed to be a five star hotel - when it’s clearly not. The worst part is not the hotel and premises itself, but the ignorance, arrogance and non existent empathy and hospitality drive of the employees, reaching through all levels (including the general manager). Language is not always the issue here, as the front office manager shares our nationality. Even the free upgrade to a pool suite after five uncomfortable days could not convince us to even consider staying - we just wanted to leave for our remaining four nights. It was supposed to be the relaxing ending to six weeks travels in Asia. Luckily we found another place. Please find below some of our most decisive factors (clearly not exhaustive): - supposedly new hotel, but rooms have not been cleaned (paint stains etc everywhere in the room, refer to pictures) - no beach access ( stated incorrectly) - shuttle service simply forgot to pick us up in Khao Lak, even after confirming it a second time with the driver himself (blamed it on us, what else) - poor restaurant and bar service, arrogant and non hospitable - even after our third indication housekeeping did not remove paint stains, dirt etc in the room - housekeeping permanently forgot towels, refill of shower gel and shampoo and their cleaning items in the room - room stock insufficient (no spoons for coffee, which is complementary but rarely restocked, no nightstands, no tooth mug, no bottle opener, no hotel information, defect switches, defect lights) - strong smell / odor across the resort - simply not finished - hotel Information channel on tv showed Information and opening hours of Anantara resort in Phuket (?) We even had to pay for the remaining four nights, even though we left. They refused to give us the money back we paid in advance. we were left angry and absolutely speechless. We would not recommend staying at Kalima at this point. We wish the hotel and staff good luck.
Dear Anne, Warm regards from the Kalima Resort & Villas Khao Lak! Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback during stay with us. Our entire team is extremely committed to delivering the perfect vacation experience for each guest. We are very sorry that we did not accomplish this for you Please allow me to comment on some points you have mentioned. Our Resort is located at the Lam Kean Beach in a nice and relaxed area where no other hotels are and is approx. 10min away from the center where you can go with the complimentary shuttle bus from the resort. To get to the beach you just need to cross the small river, 6 meters max. over a bridge. There you find a “private and natural beach where only our guests can go to. Besides that, you can go to the Poseidon Beach which is an insider place for people coming to Khao Lak for many years where 3 to 4 local restaurants are. It is correct that it takes 10min to walk but our hotel provides a shuttle service 4 times a

Très bon accueil ”
Excellent accueil et suivi de près par Joe en particulier, c'est un élément essentiel à l'établissement. Gros point négatif, l'accessibilité à la plage longeant une zone militaire avec des interdictions. Rattrapé par un établissement splendide et des lieux communs parfaitement entretenus. Matériaux très beau avec une architecture très bien pensée. Certain salarié de la restauration ont un niveau d'anglais un peu léger.
Séjour agréable dans une chambre familiale . Personnel très agréable. Le petit déjeuner est parfait, il y en a pour tous les goût. Le point négatif est que l'hôtel est assez loin de la ville donc il faut prendre la navette de l'hôtel (gratuite)mais il faut prévoir la veille !!!! Le mieux reste de louer un scooter pour pouvoir visiter à sa guise !! Le restaurant est beaucoup trop cher par rapport aux prix pratiqués ici en général, d'ailleurs il n'y a presque pas de monde qui y mange. Il y a beaucoup de petits resto très sympa un peu plus loin sur la plage à des prix très raisonnables. Je recommande quand même vivement cet endroit !!!
