"Not 5 star quality"
I was hesitant to book this hotel as there were many mixed reviews. I wish I had listened to them. The rooms had cracked plaster and repaired patches that had not been painted. We stayed 2 weeks and for at least half of that time our room was not cleaned or we had to call several times to get housekeeping to come. Most of the staff spoke little English […] and communication was difficult. Internet was poor. Staff were rude and embarrassed guests on several occasions. Apart from the buffet breakfast which was very good, other meals were not 5 star quality. The rooms at the front were facing the main road and the traffic was very noisy even late at night making it difficult to sleep. Certainly not worth the money.

Rather pleasant stay, good distance from the rowdy night life but still accessible in 10min with local taxi.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Luxury out of the way of the hustle and bustle"
We arrived having spent two days trekking in the jungle to find we had been upgraded for free to a honeymoon suite. It was incredibly luxurious and away from the noise and flashing lights of Patong beach. The restaurant is expensive for drinks but the quality is decent. It wasn't quite what we were expecting and probably not what was most suitable for […] our requirements (we were looking for a base and therefore didn't need the pool/spa/etc) however, if you are looking for a luxurious hotel with stunning views of Patong this is the place for you.

"Great place to stay"
Great place to stay but need more shuttle buses to run each day ..3 a day and the last one was at 5Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here for one night and loved it! Pool was amazing, good deals at the pool bar for happy hour. Also ordered room service which was reasonably priced and very tasty. Hotel also has a gym, mini golf course and artificial beach. It's a few minutes drive to the busy patong beach area but we were happy to spend all day within the hotel grounds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, lovely staff"
Great location, buffet breakfast was excellent!! And the staff are very friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
It is a nice hotel and not too far from Patong. If only the hotel could provide hourly shuttle to Patong ( instead of only 3 per day ) especially from 6-10pm. That would have been fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"new..resort on the hillside"
this resort is new but cannot access to the beach by walk. and the power supply in the living room is 115v or 250v, that is over powered that burn my travel adapter of samsung charger...when I ask if this is not suitable for mobile charging, they just tell me to use the power supply for the shaver in toilet that is 240v.....Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel, but definitely not worth the price to pay. Can get a much better hotel in phuket with this rate. Bus service to Patong beach is lousy, only offer 3 rides a day in a bumpy so call truck not even an air-con bus for a five star hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel with beautiful swimming pool"
First class hotel with the nice swimming pool overlooking the ocean and coast line, it was a fantastic view, especially during the sunrise and sunset. The food in the hotel was good, in particular the Thai cuisine. Not happy with the VAT (tax) 7% charged in the hotel, as it is not charged in the shops and markets. It is on top of the 10% service charge. Shuttle […] bus pick up point at downtown could easily missed as it was busy area and the bus was always in a hurry, and the sign on the smaller bus was not evident.

"nice stay and nice food"
We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay Rooms design isn't the best but good enough..the swimming pool is fun yet quite small and the food served by the lool bar is worth trying. Staff attitude vary between excellent and poor but the overall is good. I recommend the hotel if you are looking for something comfy and relaxing. It is not by the beach […] so you would need to take a cab or a tuktuk to go to patong beach it takes about 10 minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent ! The view from the Resort are so beautiful. Because of the sea view, We wish to upgrade our room to sea view with additional charges but room was fully taken up. We are so disappointed. Room are big, staff are efficient and friendly. I love the view from the infinity pool, you can see whole Patong beach from the pool. Breakfast are nice, […] I have a enjoyable and pleasant stay at Kalima. Thank you Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too far from Patong"
Went with my 2 daughters. We loved the place but just found it a pain to always have to grab a taxi or tuck tuck to and from the hotel. Next time will stay within walking distance of the night lifeGenuine Expedia guest review
Such beautiful views, amazing room, lovely service and the best buffet breakfast we have had in a while. Very romantic!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"best place we stayed"
Really nice rooms, amazing buffet breakfast, nice pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a beach resort"
We were mislead by the name "beach resort". Disappointed upon arrival. More like mountain resort. Too too many stairs. Elevators that don't go to your floor. Discombobulated. The rooms were nice with great views of bay and patong beach. And breakfast buffet was complete. Also included free shuttle to patong and beach. But hefty price tag would have […] me stay elsewhere.

"Great hotel pool and great view from restaurant"
The room was disappointing we were upgraded however our room was right next to the forest which was covered with rubbish. Food was average however staff were fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The view is the best thing about it"
Had a terribly rude receptionist who was not helpful at all. Staff were not so pleasant. Only bad thinf to say about the hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel location was great - close enough to the action but far away enough to get away from it all. The hotel was comfortable, had everything we needed and the staff were very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Highly recommended!Beautiful views!Fab for couples"
Staff are extremely friendly, helpful, they definitely made this holiday one of the best for us! Views from our bedroom were amazing!! Sea view was incredible!... The infinity pool and swim up bar was amazing, creating a paradise like atmosphere! Rooms are gorgeous, modern decor, making it easy to sit in for the night! The hotel is also a short Distance […] from patong beach and they provide a free shuttle bus to and from patong beach 3times daily! Daily breakfast we had was excellent, such a wide variety and it was delicious!! Thailand was great but the hotel made our holiday! If your looking luxury, a stress free time and a comfortable place to reside in after a day/night in patong I would definitely recommend this hotel! It was well above standard and one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had, my partner and I would go back in a heartbeat! Loved every minute of our stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome hotel, Probably the best in the area"
All round amazing hotel. Super clean and tidy, great food and drinks. 7-8 mins from the main town (you'll need a taxi). The hotel offers a free shuttle service until a certain time. Free wifi. Food is great but a little pricey- but you are in a 5 star hotel so nothing to complain about. Concierge services weren't great but I think that as due to th […] languge barriers. The pool was awesome with good music and the in pool bar- loved the infinity pool. Amazing sunset views. I really can't knock this hotel and would defo stay here again. We stayed in a superior room with sea view. Stayed 6 nights in December 2013 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We spent our honeymoon at Kalima Resort and Spa and we had a lovely time. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a special thanks to the General Manager (Ko if I remember his name correctly). The pool is beautiful and not too busy so you can really relax and enjoy and the views are amazing from room and pool. Only negative point would be that […] it is a bit far from town so you must take a taxi to really get anywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great pool villa"
We stayed a few days in the great pool villa, which has a fantastic view over the bay. Great place for a couple on a romantic vacation. Food was good with a nice buffet breakfast. Room was clean except for toilet were floor was dirty and we had plenty of small ants. The other rooms were clean. Service could be better. We had to call to get cleaning […] done and at check out it took 30 minutes from we arrived at reception until we could leave the lobby. Lets hope they work on their check out routines.

great staff, very friendly and had good English the pool is beautiful the location is also good although some would not like it being far from Bangla road but as long as you have a rented bike or car, it wont be a problem. i actually liked that it was not too close to Bangla road - too much adrenaline there :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good view but poor service"
The rooms are fine, we had a honeymoon room with a great view of the ocean. However, it takes more than 10 minutes to get from the lobby to the room and is cumbersome to get to. There is nothing around the hotel and could be troublesome to get around. Luckily we had a rental car which made it very convenient for us. I had a situation where I left some […] money in my bag in the room without locking and when I returned, I discovered some money was taken. I had counted exactly what I had so I could tell how much was taken. When I contacted the night duty manager, she took the details and promised to take action. Three days went by without any reply despite my checking with them daily. She was always making excuses such as it being the weekend and then that the duty manager was on vacation. This spoilt the entire trip I had there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close enough to Patong but not too close"
My partner and I stayed for 2 and a half weeks, We stayed in the honeymoon suite on the highest floor which did take a bit to get too but wasn't overly terrible as previous reviews had mentioned. Our view was to die for overlooking patong bay (when it wasn't over cast which was half of our stay) on arrival we were charged 1000 baht a night deposit ($616AUS) […] or our passports. Strange when the rest of the world just takes a credit card authorization. English is not a highlight at front desk. First negative things we noticed in our room was the mini bar is not cold and I was explained that mini bars aren't meant to be cold here. Ordering ice to the room is not free cost 50 baht. The smell of sewage will creep through your bath room but you have to expect that in Asia. The shower water overflows onto the bathroom floor. The toilet easily blocks and we had spoken to two other couples where the same thing had happened to them. Ordering taxis from the hotel cost you more so go across the road and bargain with them. The free hotel shuttle bus is always an hour late to pick you up from town so alot of waiting around. Apart from the negaties we really did love our stay and would stay again. Our highlight was the pool area and the staff there, they were beautiful and friendly people (Auong, Bao, Tom and Noi the chef.) Who made our trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"AMAZING, amazing, amazing!!!!!"
I would not want to stay anywhere else while I'm in Thailand, staff where incredible and could speak English fairly well. The pool looks exactly like it does in the photo seriously the whole resort looks exactly like the photos on hotels.com. I would maybe shop around and look when they have deals on kalima rooms, We even stayed in a deluxe room which […] was beautiful. The views where fantastic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great View, Good service but away from the action"
The hotel is new and has amazing views of the bay. It is definitely worth paying for a sea view. There were a few small things that let it down. ( the shower used to flood the bathroom after a while. the fridge did not really get cold, some days you would get more towels than others. the turn down service never showed up) but besides these small things […] we really enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfy, the room and bathroom were a decent size and clean. The breakfast was ok but catered more for an Asian market(it did have a great view ). the hotel had a few small things that were not finished. the putt putt course etc. the main infinity pool was amazing. the other lap pool at the fake beach sand pit was ok. The restaurants were a bit pricey but you don’t really have much of a choice unless you take a taxi. If you took a taxi from the hotel it was 300B but if you walked out you could get a local taxi for 200B. They do have a shuttle service 3 times a day but none in the evening. Going to Patong's main stretch can become costly if you are doing multiple trips a day. It is not really walking distance from the main strip in Patong, it took us about 50min to walk. We only did that on the first day. The beach nearby is quite small and rocky so I would not really bother going. Overall a nice hotel, with a great view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our 4 th stay in Thailand and first at this hotel. We were so happy with this choice. The staff at kalima are so friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate us. We extended our stay with a kalima. The hotel is very clean, fresh and new. The room are exactly as pictured. The hotel is on a hill and does have a lot of stairs but this did […] not effect us. We would happily stay here again and would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The first room assigned was not ready. Wait more than 10 mins to get a room. Bath blocked. Stopped during shower and call desk to fix it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is new and trendy, Breakfast is great and the Thai restaurant was fantastic!! Is located a bit out of the main city of Patong but thank goodness we made this choice ! Patong is not the cleanest and best smelling part of Thailand so I recommend being a little further away from the noise and busy city.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel lives up to the reviews. The staff are amazing. Very accommodating. The hotel itself looks like the pictures we cancelled our other hotel and extended our stay here. Love it and we will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely modern accomodation"
We stayed in the Kalima for 3 nights and found it to be very modern, clean, well kept and attractive accommodation. The pool area is stunning and the room spacious and well thought out. Its location is a bit out of town and you need cabs. To improve our stay, we would have appreciated a later shuttle into town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice newer place, great for couples."
This was my first time to Phukett and I enjoyed it very much, we are considering going back. There isn't much to do close by this hotel, you need to take the shuttle or a taxi to reach the action near Patong Beach. The place is crazy, it's like Los Cabo San Lucas multiplied by 10. The food did not agree with me which was the only downer for me. Overall, […] we had fun and it's definitely a must see for any first timer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed during the off season and given the reduced price it was exceptionally good value. Awesome buffet breakfast, amazing room, nice pool and good restaurants. The only drawback was the limited number of shuttles to patong. With only 3 shuttles per day we had to rely on local taxis which were not always friendly. Overall, we'd happily stay aga […] in.

"Hotel with an amazing view and comfort"
Kalima resorts on patong beach (the most happening zone) is 20 min from Phuket city. On reaching the resort i was most thrilled with the view which was like a huge canvas painted with blue and green hues. The room was absolutely clean and very comfortable. Hotel staff was really understanding despite the lingual confusion. The pool area was beautiful […] too. Having ordered only only a pizza in the hotel (which wasnt great) i cannot comment on the food. Overall our experience at Kalima was great. We were ripped by the local taxis initially but thankfully hired scooties for the rest of our trip. 3-4 days are more than enough for phuket unless you wish to laze around on the beach & sunbathe for a month!

"great views from this hotel"
Had a short stay at Kalima Resort & Spa. Hotel is away from the busy central of Patong, up on a hillside looking down at Patong. Fantastic views from the Restaurant and great view from our deluxe ocean view room. Breakfast was included daily and a fantastic variety to choose from each morning, it was hard deciding what to eat!! Shuttle bus from hotel […] 3 times a day, great option to go down to Patong for some shopping. Staff were great and friendly! really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend to family and friends to stay here!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is far away from any beaches. You need to pay around 200 Baht to reach the nearest beach Patong. Although the deco and landscape of the hotel is nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel nice room and facilities. I you hate stairs and walking it will not be suitable just a bit to far from town and activities. Shutle bus provided only goes 3 times a day so if you want to make use of it you have to plan accordingly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely stay here again!! Great location."
This is a great resort. Just the right distance away from busy Patong, but not too far. There is a free shuttle going into town 3 times a day, some of the times are a bit inconvenient. The sea view room is a must! Breakfast caters for both western and asian tastes. Staff are friendly and had no problems. You are greeted with a lovely cool, devine smelling […] towel and a drink. Infinity swimming pool was good, but it's not very deep. Prices for drinks and food are reasonable. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
