        Kala..disappointing ”
        Stunning views. Infinity pool with ocean views. Very poor lighting in rooms and lots of stairs to climb if you have young children and elderly . Phiyo and Nok are very helpful in the restaurant. Good to have breakfast from 6am to 6pm as you can sleep in. However, you pay fine dining prices for even a light meal pizza in their only restaurant that’s not even up to standard. So rather eat out in nearby eateries.Hire a motorcycle or car for easy access to explore the area. Taxis pass regularly outside hotel, just flag them down. We stayed at a 4 * star hotel in Nai Harn for 9 days before Kala and the overall experience was amazing compared to Kala.

        Nice hotel is in a nice location. Close to a very nice beach and good beach front restaurant. The hotel staff were all very nice and catered for our daughters food allergy. Our room had fantastic views. The rooms were cleaned daily if you wanted. Our room was up at the road level but were not worried by the traffic noise. The pool was very nice also with great views. Being built on the side of a hill it does not work for people who have trouble with stairs. But the upside of this is the fantastic views from all around the hotel. Breakfast was always nice. Lunch and dinner is expensive so we ate in town or at the beach restaurant. The hotel does need a bit of a 'spruce up', however we would recommend it to our friends.

        Very run down, terrible service and NO management on site!!”
        Save your money and go elsewhere. I had a lot of issues as the places we pretty run down, wanted to snorkel but all the equipment was broken. Staff were very poorly trained for a 'luxury' hotel. I had numerous issues, which is to be expected with an older building - however, when I wanted to speak to a manger I found out there was NO management on site! So none of my issues could be resolved. The place was a joke to be honest and is in desperate need of some management and staff training. Food was insanely expensive to, even the staff agreed.

        Nice Hotel”
        This was a nice hotel. Small with a great view of the ocean. Wish I spent the extra money for a room with a private pool. The location is a little out of the way, not within walking distance of anything. The hotel has access to a car or motorbike rental that was very reasonably priced with cars in great condition. Food at the restaurant was a bit limited but good. Great quiet weekend spot.

        Spacious and clean room. Good place for relaxation. Recommend for person who enjoy living peaceful. But don’t recommend for person who love nightlife. Friendly staff & good service mind cons: this hotel is located next to the sea with beautiful scenery. But no beach.

        Incredible views, beautiful infinity pools, good food, and all around an amazing place. Only complaint was a mouse that infiltrated our room and a staff and management that couldn’t do anything about it. Even with that glitch, this place was so spectacular that we’d still recommend it!

        Was probably once a spectacular hotel but...”
        It’s now seen better days for sure! If you can get it for £45 a night like we did then it’s a bargain though as the rooms are beautiful. The main issue is that everything is just in need of a little love and care because it’s starting to look quite ngeclected. Also the amazing views are largely blocked by trees which is surely a fairly quick fix and then it’d live up to what you expect from the photos

        The villa was amazing but thats it. The KALA obvious downfall from their previous glory due to their staff. The staff no where to be found, they dont pick up the phone either. They really show it to you that they are "doing you a favour" when they are working. Breakfast was pathetic. Better hotel next door.

        From the moment we opened the entrance & saw the view we fell in love with the Kala! The staff are attentive & caring - altogether a great experience - highly recommend it. PS used the complimentary kayak to explore nearly beaches - a real bonus. Note to management: The snorkelling masks need to be replaced - they are not watertight.

        Good place, "Horrible" Staff at Dining”
        The room is beyond my expectation, because the pictures on Agoda look really bad. It's a good room with a lovely view of the sea compared to the price you'd get. The hotel has the private package for the trip to Mudsoom island, however the day we went the wave was too high, so we had only a chance to go to Koh Tan. The driver ( the caretaker from the hotel), he was very lovely and took care of us two girls very well. One horrible thing, I would always remember about my trip staying at the Kala is that there was one dining staff who was "Very" rude to us, about receiving the order. Upon our arrival they told us that they would serve all day breakfast 'till 6pm. I was at 6 and he said that they wouldn't serve anything anymore because... looking at his watch, it's over few minutes by his watch. And that wasn't as upsetting as how rude in manners and words he talked to me. I am Thai and there are slangs and words that's considered rude. So, i have to say It was a bad experience.

        This place seems like it started out as a really well thought out resort. The only problem is it feels like they are struggling to uphold a high standard on all fronts. Don’t get me wrong, we had everything that we need and no hassles. It’s just that when you stay at a place like this you expect that things will feel a little more “Tight” To sum it up: Pros - Clean, beautiful room. Fantastic shower/bath. Large, comfortable bed. Great view. Cons - A lack of personal touch. A bit far from anything, must take a taxi. Facilities not kept at 100%
