While hotel location is good the hotel staff have 0 communication skills, they don’t understand English and some of them are extremely rude and so not helpful! I don’t understand what’s the point behind staying in a resort and paying a load of money for room to eventually get room on 3rd floor with no elevator! And the balcony is blocked by huge wall with a huge electric generator on it! The room description said a resort view which usually means a garden, a pool perhaps the buildings of hotel but not a wall with annoying generator and these are for all the rooms that have resort view! So make sure if u are desperate and need to book this hotel to at least save your vacation and book sea view! The hotel has a tour service desk who has been giving us misleading info all our stay there... wanted to do tours to islands (James Bond and Phi Phi) and he always said the only way to go there is by booking through agent to discover later that you can actually go to the pier book your own ticket and save loads of money! So make sure not to book your tours from this desk. The breakfast has loads of variety but unfortunately every single dish had pork in it except for the egg and croissants :p I don’t eat pork on Bkfast and I know some people don’t eat pork in general so some consideration for vegetarians as well! Overall the hotel doesn’t worth the money paid which is considered one of the expensive in Its area and definitely not a 5 stars! I advice to check other hotels in Patong.

The hotel in overall experience rated higher in my assessment than several other hotels I have stayed in during my past visits to Phuket. The location was a little away from the 'market places' and the main beach of Phuket but it would be more than welcome to a visitor who is ready to trade the din and bustle of city life for the tranquility in the serene surroundings of Kalima Resort. The breakfast menu of the hotel is incredibly sumptuous and the rooftop ambiance overseeing the sea is splendid.

Beautiful hotel, very comfortable, clean, relaxing. Had some difficulty communicating with staff, but def enough to get by. Only other con was my shower didn’t get hot, other than that great stay at Kalima!

A little away from the beach. but was able to rent a bike outside hotel and get around.

Kalima is an amazing resort! I would stay again and recommend to all of my friends and family. Food was amazing, and not very expensive. Alcoholic beverages were awesome and did I forget to mention BUY 1 get 1 FREE?! Omg who does that? The view no matter where you went was gorgeous! Now for the bad things... We got the double pool access (amazing) however, being my honeymoon I wanted a little more privacy from my neighbors upstairs, maybe a longer balcony for them so they can't see me in the jacuzzi part of the pool. The bathroom was not bright enough in the shower, we took late night showers and it was fairly dark even with alllllll of the lights turned on in there. The Thai restaurant wasn't all that, and very expensive for mediocre food. Malika was delicious though. Over all a romantic location and close to the beach, keep up the good work kalima!

The second we got to Kalima we were greeted with warmth and communication. Jessie went out of his way to make sure all our questions were answered and everything in our hotel room was perfect. We stayed in the Pool Access room which I highly recommend. There's an outdoor shower and private pool out from which stays very clean. We couldn't get our audio on our tv to work when we arrived - they literally sent someone up within a few minutes. The audio was fine, we just couldn't figure out how to use the tv :)! The view is breathtaking and the breakfast is out of this world. There's a few cute restaurants too down the road if you want to get outside the hotel, but the hotel cuisine is delicious too. Great trip!

amazing hotel! the pool was a dream and the staff was the best

Beautiful location...just wish there was ocean access nearby.

I'm usually don't like to Come back to the same hotels but this one I'll definitely be back next time when I'm In Phuket .Huge rooms,great pool with amazing views ,friendly staff.

I just wanted to send out a Big Thank You to Chev and the entire staff at Kalima Resort & Spa. This was our first time staying here but definitely not our last. Chev the assistant front desk manager went over and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted and more. Kalima is much bigger then we expected with very amazing pool villa suites with breathtaking ocean views. Breakfast buffet was huge with a wide selection of exotic fruits, and food to choose from. We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Kalima and I comfortably recommend them to everyone.

Great hotel located 10 min away from Patong center. Quiet.. great value..Pool is awesome with bar pool and view is breathtaking specially from rooftop restaurant..there's a shuttle bus to patong city.. just not that frequent taxi is 300thb to beach..

My experience was both good and bad... It was nice that we could check in early (around 1pm instead of 3pm). But, I have to come back to the front desk again to change my room because the room was smelly and we were not comfortable staying in the room. They were kind enough to put us on a higher floor (not smelly) room without any issue. We had GRAND DELUXE SEA VIEW, but the sea view was blocked by number of telephone poles right in front of the room and side window of the bathtub area was covered with bamboo trees. I guess you can see the sea without any obstructs if you are on the highest floor and on a corner unit (which is a very rare thing....). But the room itself was very spacious for two of us, and we enjoyed the large comfortable bed. Infinity pool was nice and big. But if you want to have some privacy or quiet moment, I recommend you to go to a smaller pool on a hill (near mini-golf course). Complementary breakfast was good and the restaurant has a nice view overlooking Patong area. Overall, I think you can find a better hotel for the value in Phuket. But, the hotel is not too bad.

My friends and I chose Kalima because of the reviews--and we loved it! The staff was superb! (Aside from the young man at the desk accusing me of removing the hair dryer from my room--he was quickly corrected and apologized for the accusation). The pool is BIG and even though the pool bar wasn't open, servers came, took our orders, and served us poolside ) The location to Patong Beach was not far at all... close enough to get to the excitement, but far enough to get away. All in all a great choice!
