Had a great holiday there. Top location, lovely staff, Great food, perfect atmosphere... The Rockpool bar/restaurant is located on the beach and gives you stunning views over the sea. We'll come back for sure.

This resort, the staff, rock pool restaurant, the location, views, build and maintenance standards are excellent. The rooms are finished to European five star levels, we stayed in a three bed villa with private salt pool, it was superb in all respects. We sampled the chefs special dining, right on their own beach, attention to detail, service and food quality... More

My family of 4 stayed in Kanda for 4 nights during July/Aug. We had stayed in this villa years ago when the name was Karma. The villa was still very well managed and maintained. We had a great villa with 2-bedrooms and one huge living room with kitchen. The private swimming pool, though small, but sufficient for us to spend... More

I stayed here in September for 2 weeks with friends. The villas are beautifully decorated, immaculately maintained and the views are simply stunning! The Rockpool restaurant offers a fantastic selection of food and every dish we had was excellent - particularly the Thai food and the pizzas from the outdoor oven! The restaurant itself has been beautifully designed to take... More

I recently stayed at Kanda for my third time in 8 years and the place never disappoints. The food, staff and views are unrivalled, having stayed in various luxury spa hotels across Asia and Europe i can honestly say there aren't many as good as Kanda. The resort itself is beautifully maintained, everywhere is immaculate and the management clearly have... More

It would have been nice to have been warned that we had no view (well we wouldn't have booked...). The vila was 3 rooms onto our own courtyard with a small private pool. Nicely spacious, they could do with fogging mosquitoes as we were bitten a lot - despite having lots of repellant on. Cleaning at the villa was haphazard... More
