Sawatdee! The Kala is a beautiful boutique hotel with wonderful attentive staff. During my stay Fern, Yod and the staff helped to arrange a perfect proposal with couples spa and dinner on the rocks.

The Kala is a boutique hotel with 38 rooms positioned peaceful between Chaweng and Lamai. A taxi or private car needed for visiting the towns and close-by restaurants. The 26th degree restaurant on site serves fusion food at very reasonable price compared to restaurants in Chaweng and the food was fine quality but it is not exciting. The hotel offers... More

The Kala Samui is the perfect resort. I honestly wonder if those who gave it fewer than 5 stars stayed in the same resort I did.
