The Kala is perched on top of giant granite boulders overlooking the ocean, on a picturesque section of coastline between Chaweng Noi and Coral Cove (a small bay just before Lamai proper).
The interior is an eclectic mix of modern Zen and antiques, blended with comfortable pieces, interesting artwork and all the comforts one would expect. Rates are reasonable for the standard, and the rooms are spacious, with spa-style bathrooms that open up with shutters to the bedroom. All rooms have sea views and private balconies. The two-storey pool villas have a private pool and massage sala. The resort offers kayaking and snorkelling from the boulders below, or from their Beach Club, a private beach area shared with two other resorts in Chaweng Noi, which has a bar, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas. The beach club is only 300 metres from the resort and can be accessed via a walk on the boulders, by kayak or by a shuttle that leaves every hour. The Kala has a fine-dining restaurant at street level, as well as the Rabbit Bar next to the pool, or private dining for two on the rocks overlooking the bay. Cooking classes are available. Be sure to shop around online for a competitive rate.
