"Great place for relaxing"
I stayed in the grand delux room sea view. I am very happy with the room, only thing is the balcony is not very clean. That can be improved. Customer service is good. Even when I called up for svc in the middle of the night, the staff still obliged and sent up to me what I needed. Breakfast spread is so so, can be better though. OverAll, the experience […] is good! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Only thing was probably just a bit further out than we wanted but could still get into where we needed to go.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good resort"
Well built resort. A bit far away from Patong beach. Hire a scooter as soon as you get there and you should be fine - or be prepared to pay steep taxi fares. If you plan to just stay at the resort then this one is perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A bit noisy, overall nice experience"
Hotel & surroundings are gorgeous, there's an infinity pool and service is amazing too. I was in a deluxe room with sea view in the left building block, and the only problem was that the walls appear to be extremely thin one night I could barely sleep. Plus there was a locked door directly in my suite linking it to the neighbor. Considering all this […] I would still be happy to go back next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The service was ok and always polite. The food at the resort was expensive, but TERRIBLE, so we had to constantly catch taxis into patong for breaky, lunch and dinner. There was a constant smell of sewage coming up through the drains, and a bad smell of mould coming from the air con. The pool and pool bar was nice. Certainly not 5 star! PS: the walls […] are paper thin, so if You dont like the sound off a old S*x tourist trying to reach his goal, i wouldnt recomend it ... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice, quite location. Beautiful view with sea view room. Breakfast is international buffet and not too bad. Internet is not very fast as it is 512kbps.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were staying in sea view honeymoon room . It was really nice ... But I would not recommend this hotel to elderly people .... People who have medical condition or have had surgery & have difficulty walking up & down the stairs . The hotel is on the hill & there are too many stairs involved .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect view, great spa, great service"
We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa. It was almost the perfect vacation we could have expected. However there were many insects/lizards/gecko crawling around the inside of the villa which made us feel uncomfortable. The management could arrange for some weekly pest control. But overall it was still great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Is good as it's far away from the busy Patong town"
Wonderful for my wife and I . Great honeymoon . We love the Honeymoon SuiteGenuine Expedia guest review
"Room that we stayed in the view is amazing."
Is our first time staying in Kalima for our short getaway.We stayed for 2nites there to have a relax,quiet with someone special for his birthday.We're happy to have the room with the amazing view,from the room we can view the pool the beach. The hotel staff had suprised us by giving a small birthday cake.Sure we will come back to Kalima one day.Genuine Expedia guest review
Didn't quite look as amazing as the pictures, would go for the seaview room as unfortunately I didn't and had no view at all. Pools looked nice and clean, although my trip was short I didn't use them (we had rain too). Arranged taxis no problem, you do need to take a taxi into Patong, although their is a shuttle but not very regular and not for evening […] time. Seemed like more of a 4* hotel to be honest, was expecting slightly better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"worst hotel i stayed in asia"
I ve been travelling in Asia for business and leisure during the last 5 years and i must say this is the most disappointing experience ever. All about this hotel is cheap… Its starting from the minute we arrived down the lobby. Theres a big stair to reach it, but none is there to welcome you neither take care of your luggage… Then when you finally arrive […] in the lobby it was 30min before the official check-in time and we were told that it was not possible to get the room before the 2pm… After double checking i learned from other staff that the hotel was not even 50% full… The worst is evrytime we express our disappointment, the staff is laughing and really don't care about anything. The room are quiet cheap, cleaning is random…One evening at 7pm nobody came to clean the room, and we had to ask new soap from the front desk to take a shower… it never came… Food from the main restaurant is disgusting…I don't even mention the Tuk Tuk scam to join the city which is a 5 minute ride… Anyhow the overall experience have been terrible, i would advise this hotel to anyone Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good resort and close to patong"
The staff and the service was great, I will be definitely stay there again. The condition of the building wasn't to good for a new resort but the views were stunning. The buffe was good but not much selections. But over all it was good and we enjoyed our stay. Many thanks to the staff they did a great jobGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was big and beautiful, experience slightly marred only by the sandy floor. Generally a good place for a beach retreat, except that its a distance away from the beach. Though there are free shuttle bus services to the Patong Beach area (~7-8km away), there are only 3 such timings available each day. A nearer hotel to the beach might/might not cost […] you more. As expected, cost of food/drinks in the hotel is expensive, even by Phuket tourist standards, so it would bring you far better selection and value to take a taxi (300baht) to the Patong Beach area to have a decent meal instead of ordering room service. Phuket, a beach getaway thriving mainly from tourist activities, is definitely far more expensive even compared to Bangkok. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very far frim the beach"
The description says close to the beach but its very farGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, more a 4 star"
The view from our Pool Access room was stunning, and the pool was fantastic. It was our own space to spend time together. The only issue was the bad smell from the room. We rang room service who dropped off a nice smelling candle which helped greatly, however once the candle was off the smell returned. It seemed to be coming from the toilet, therefore […] sewerage issues. The hotel was nice enough but not a 5 star as stated. We previously stayed at the Holiday Inn Villa room and were given those extra special things that a 5 star hotel would do. Only 2 bottles of water a day were provided at Kalima and we were advised not to use the tap water. So these 2 bottles were used for cleaning our teeth. The hotel is promoting been "Green" so the extra towels, water etc were not provided. For a 5 star hotel this should be included. The courtesy buses into town were fine.

Everything is very flashy and new and the view is breathtaking. We had a great time, however the only issue we had was my wife wanted a cup of tea in our room with the supplied kettle and tea/sugar available. The fridge had no milk, so we asked for some. Room service brought up a small glass of milk and this was charged at 180 baht, this is almost […] $7 Australia dollars. This was unacceptable and left us pretty annoyed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed Delux See View Room with some discount. A Stay at this hotel under more than 40% discount, it might be worth. The hotel try to keep public area and also room, which is good thing. Something I would tell is that break fast is not as good as reviews, other people write. See view from the top dining floor is something amazing. One more thing […] I really emphasize is that the mongo they serves at the restaurant is so tasty. Have a nice trip:) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel with an even more amazing view!"
My stay at Kalima Resort & Spa was excellent! The infinity pool with swim up bar was 10/10, along with the buffet breakfast and the overall 7 days I spent at the resort. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
"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

"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.

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

I would not want to stay anywhere else while I'm in Thailand, staff where incredible and could speak English fairly well.

"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
