Awesome Hotel with Perfect Seaview!”

Clean Room, spacious and new.

Kalima Resort & Spa (5 star) is definitely the best Resort in Patong, Phuket. We stayed in Phuket for 6 days. Booked 3 days at Kalima Resort & Spa and 3 days at SM Resort (3 star) which is nowhere close to Kalima Resort & Spa standards. We checked it at SM Resort on our 4th day and checked out after 1 hour of checking in. I requested for a refund via Agoda and they told me that it's possible but they will be charging a day charge and can only refund me for the rest of the 2 night stay and we agreed. So we decided to moved ourself to Blue Ocean Hotel (4 star). Still not up to standard but it's alright compared to SM Resort. Feeling exhausted, we decided to stay in for a night at Blue Ocean and get back to Kalima Resort & Spa. The next day we checked ourself in Kalima Resort & Spa feeling so relief. Staff welcomed us back nicely. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Kalima Resort & Spa will definitely be the same Resort I will stay in the next time I'm here in Phuket. No doubt. Service is excellent. View is breath taking And lastly breakfast was awesome with perfect sea view. Living in the Kardashian life for sure

Nice Hotel ”

Kalima Resort & Spa is located about 5 minutes from Patong Beach which makes it a great location. The room was very clean and had great views of the beach. The bed was a bit hard but overall a nice and updated room. This room doesn't have drawers so be prepared to leave your belonging in your luggage while you are here. The pool is an infinity pool with a great view and a swim up bar. The drinks are good and priced OK. The main restaurant where breakfast is served is average. The dinner is not good here. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere for dinner. They arranged for a private van to pick up my group of 6 straight from the airport for 2000 bahts since it was after 2am. Paton Beach is the center of almost everything in Phuket. You can take a 30 minute ride to just about anything you want to do at Phuket.

Our stay was amazing, relaxing & all over jus perfect.. The staff were all amazing, always helpful in everyway possible & so very friendly!! The resort was jus beautiful, everything u want in a hotel..

Fantastic Experience”

Sea view room was beyond beautiful. The staff was very attentive, friendly, & helpful. The pool was so much fun to swim in.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Kalima Resort & Spa. When my boyfriend & I walked into our room we were very impressed & happy to be there. The sea view put our room over the top. We absolutely loved it. Also, every single staff member we met was amazing. Always smiling & making sure we were being taken care of. This staff was truly the best hotel staff we've ever had before. We also enjoyed taking a long swim in the pool. We loved the view of the water while also being in the water. Impeccable views. The hotel is a little off the map but is not too far from Patong Beach & we enjoyed shopping there for a day. There is also several bars in the area too.

simply outstanding!”

Staff, facilities and food beyond compare!

This was our first time in Phuket and we enjoyed every bit of our stay at Kalima. To begin with the Front office staff especially a really friendly guy named 'Ralph' helped us move to a different room with a better view immediately after check-in, much to our surprise it had the best view of Patong/Kalim Bay your money could get you. My wife and I had a superb time while at Kalima Resort & Spa and will surely return soon. Five stars all the way! 😆

Amazing...”

Friendly, Clean, Cozy

I stayed in a duplex villa at Kalima Resort & Spa in June 2014. Kalima is relatively new as it only opened in late 2012. Facilities are still new and clean.Breakfast was average. Food wasn't piping warm, which is expected due to strong winds from the sea. If you choose to sit outside, hang on to your paper towels as the wind can get quite strong. The balcony in front of the restaurant offers an excellent panoramic view of Patong Beach.The hotel has an "Infinity pool" where you can chill at the edge of the pool and take in the view of the beach. There is a poolside bar if you need a drink.

Great views and great food”

Beautiful views of patong bay, infinity pools and great food options

We loved our stay at Kalima, we originally booked for 4 nights but extended to 10 nights and upgraded to the swim-out apartment. The swimouts are by far the best option if you can afford it, the infinity pool attached to the swimouts is separate from the main pool and sits up higher allowing an un-obstructed view of patong and patong bay. Beautiful. This resort is on a hillside so be prepared for lots of stairs although there are elevators on every building. Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choices and an egg chef. 2 restaurants (Thai and international) we ate at both and both have fantastic food although a little dear for Thailand. All prices attract a 17% tax which seems to be common in these resorts. Only downs would be it is a little out from patong and you will pay 300 baht each way in a taxi or wait for the free shuttle that runs 3 times a day. There are scooters available from the front of the resort, and its a short ride along the coast to beautiful surin beach(recommended). Also the resort is only 10 months old and there is evidence of some unfinished work, nothing massive just a few finishing touches need completing

Simply the BEST hotel we've EVER stayed at!”

Amazing architecture, superfluous LUXERY

Oh wow. I cannot recommend this place enough. I'm a VERY upmarket traveller (only choose the very best hotels - 5* and Agoda +8.7) and I was blown away by Kalima. If you read my other reviews, my holiday consisted of 7 hotels, each better than the last, starting off with the amazing Siam Kempinski & Banyan Tree in BK. Kalima was near the end of this chain and it had to compare to those prior hotels - it blew them all away! We got an amazing pool villa. The room size was insane, the fittings were better than my own luxury ZA mansion, the view was unreal...well I just cannot say anything bad about this hotel! Walking around you get to appreciate how incredible the engineering and architecture is; this large hotel is built on the side of a cliff and the pillars and supports are just scary. This took a brave team to design and build! We hired a scooter so travel was dead easy, but over the road is the impressive royal Thai cuisine restaurant; baan ri pa (or something similar). Patong is NOT walking distance away, and taxis will rip you when they see the hotel they are collecting you from. So really think about a scooter - they are not as dangerous as the guide books suggest. Oh, the ONLY thing that could be improved is the staff. They were great, but compared to the Kempinski, Banyan, and Nora Buri hotels, they were neither as friendly nor as capable in English. But truly, that was such a minor complaint and this was still the best hotel of our 7-hotel trip!

beautiful view”

view, food, pool

My husband and I stayed in Phuket for 6 days...3 in Kata and 3 in Patong area which lead us to Kalima. The the price it is fantastic, at the time we booked it was a little over $80 a night. When we showed up we were amazed by the open lobby and the view it had of the ocean. We went straight to the 2nd floor pool that overlooked the ocean. Beautiful! -- we were a little hungry so we ordered a burger to split which was fantastic! (a little pricey, but it was to be expected). The restaurant was a little expensive for lunch and dinner, but it was worth it! Awesome fried rice!! The room was nice, we had a sea view...we could barely see the sea because we were on the 2nd floor and the uphill drive was blocking our view, but all the way to the right you could see the ocean, it wasn't an inconvenience. The only problem we had was how far it was from Patong Beach area. They charged a 300 baht fee for their taxi service into town. They do offer a free shuttle to town there are 3 times it runs, nothing passed 1600. If you do not want to be close to Patong area this place is perfect! (awesome dessert area downstairs right before you walk into the bar)

Our stay at Kalima”

The pool, our room and the staff.

I can highly recommend Kalima Resort & Spa if you are looking for a hotel that keeps a very high standard. This is the second time I have stayed there and I there is really not much I can complain on. The pool is amazing, the rooms are clean and the hotel as a whole follow a very high standard. We were upgraded to a sea view room which was of course highly appreciated. I would specially like to send my regards to Jessie that works there and helped us with the check-in, very professional and service-minded.

awesome stay”

really sorry for reviewing it after almost 1 year... we spent a memorable time there... breakfast items need more halal options... i must remember a staff - Mr. Lip (maybe he was the manager), who helped us a lot during our check-in as it was overbooked at that time... location is not very far from patong and there are some good restaurants and eateries between 5-10 minutes drive.... thank u sooo much kalima resort for giving us some cherish-able memory...

Stress-free, luxurious retreat ”

Infinity pool, celan rooms, internet access

We had no problems with check in (even when it was as late as 9pm). Counters were open and staff were there to help out. A helpful bellboy, Ae helped us and took the initiative to show us around our room. He was very warm and imediately made us feel welcome. Contrary to what some reviewers mentioned, we DID get our welcome drink. Room was great but I have an issue with having such a small fridge which is already half full with hotel supplies of drinks (chargeable) and we had no space for our own foodstuff that need to be kept in the freezer. Powerpoints were great and I didnt have to bring international chargers. Bathroom supplies were replenished daily. No problems. My husband and I love to sit at the balcony and there were no mosquitoes. Seaview for honeymoon suite was great. We do not like the fact that our credit card was swiped and charged for deposit, with the total amount to be returned after 15 days. I have settled payment with agoda, so I do not see any need to swipe the card, charge us and return deposit after 15 days. We have no issues about the location of Kalima. To get nice seaview, we understand it must be high up, but the management should consider having shuttle buses to Jungvceylon more frequently. 3 times per day (last bus 5pm) is not enough. Having to pay 300B for a taxi everyday to go into town or Patong Beach is a bit too steep. I would stay at Kalima again, no qualms about that.

Great Hotel. Very New. Amazing Views!”

Views of the sea and beach, great food

kalima was a great stay for me. i would recommend this hotel for couples, however, i stayed alone and still loved it. i didn't leave the hotel. it had great food at a reasonable price, the pool was amazing with the views from there and the rooftop restaurant. my room was great. book a seaview room. you will definitely enjoy sitting out on the balcony looking out to the sea. you need to drive to get to patong beach but the hotel offers three shuttles a day to and from patong. it's about 3km away, so it's best to shuttle or taxi. wifi isn't the greatest but it was free. overall, i would stay here again for sure and i would recommend this hotel to others.

Value for money”

good breakfast

Had stayed 3 days in Kalima. Understand it's a new hotel officially opened in Oct 12. The taxi driver from phuket airport lost the way and the contact no that agoda provided in the booking confirmation did not work. Luckily, we were able to find the way with the help from local people. We booked deluxe seaview room. However, the room assigned was on 3rd floor and happened to be blocked by the building in front. Called front desk for change. However, the room changed next day was in the first building directly facing street with balcony door broken. Asked for change again! To certain comfort, the front desk staff was helpful and in the end upgrade us to honeymoon room which was in the building up on the hill with great view. Something good about the hotel: nice breakfast! great swimming pool! I enjoyed the pool at night all by myself. Agoda promotion price is value for money. The location is away from patong, but with that kind of price, you can easily afford to take taxi whenever you want. Reaching in patong around 5-10mins.

Excellent hotel and staff”

Kalima is an excellent hotel overlooking the bay just outside Patong Beach. I stayed at one of the pool access rooms and enjoyed it a lot. The room was nice, featuring an espresso maker, free minibar and outside space with a Jacuzzi. The only negative things were that the safe did not work and that the bathroom's lighting was quite low. I'd have preferred a stronger lighting. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating, they took care of everything I asked them - from loud music in the next room one night to prompt delivery of beach towels at my room. Within minutes of appearing at the lobby we asked if we needed a taxi (which we did). We got Bangkok Post delivered every day and a chocolate in the night. Unusually for hotels this size, the main pool area did not have a lot of people, felt quiet and relaxing. Pool is open until 2200 which was awesome. The staff at the main pool's bar was very nice too. The main restaurant at the top floor has a spectacular terrace and the view from there is even better. I liked the decor and the breakfast choice - it's wasn't like in Europe but well, that's why I travelled so far - to experience something else! It would have been better if this hotel offered a half-board option. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Total relaxation, close enough to Patong”

The ocean view, pool and pool bar, breakfast

The hotel is perfect for a relaxing getaway with panaromic views of the ocean, yet not too far from Patong (4km) to get in for some food, beers and cheap massage when we wanted to. would suggest hiring a scooter if youre staying here, a mere few mins scoot down to patong and anywhere else. there is a taxi/scooter hire just opposite the hotel but remember to hire beforehand. . there are also shuttles to and from patong 3 times a day if youre staying here, make sure you get the ocean view rooms/suites. there are reviews of a private beach at kalima but note kalima is on the cliff and there is no beachside access; what they have is a small sand "beach" within the compound of the hotel. but with the infinity pool you forget you even need to go to the beachh loved the views, even at breakfast, the poolside bar was tops in service n drinks my fav part of the day. and the BACON at breakfast is 'out of this world'

Perfect getaway!”

Quiet, scenic and luxury room

My stay in Kalima was great. Hotel amenities are up to expectation except for the free shuttle service. Due to the resort is approx 15mins away from Patong, the resort only provides 3 times free shuttle per way where the last shuttle is timed at 17:00. It would be better if there is a directory given stating its restaurants and bar with its operating hours and there isn't any location map provided in the room which was unfriendly to move around. As it is located on the cliff so steps are expected but could be inconvenient for babies and elderly. Need to pay more attention on signs and direction within the hotel. Other than that, it is a perfect destination with breathtaking view.

Lovely Resort, Friendly Staff & Nice Sea View”

Newly Resort in phuket town, hotel breakfast with lots of food selection & food yummy yummy

Customer service is good in Kalima Spa Resort! Overall we are very happy & satisfy with our stay with Kalima for 4N3N phuket holiday. Just one things have to take note that some of the hotel room equipment (eg bathtub, lamp light ..) might not in good working condition, suggest the hotel to have regular checking & maintainence on their facilities. Other than that, I'll like to rate "Very good" for this Resort! Will come back again!
