Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff were outstanding! The service we got was on another level They offered to take us to our room with a car every time we needed and helped us with our luggage The hotel was amazing too, the pool, the restaurants and the view. They also upgraded our room to a honeymoon suite for free.

I will review the property by sections and do take note that the review is based only on my stay experience.. Hotel traffic security - 5/5 As the hotel is located on a hillside with steep gradient, driving in and out of the hotel would be very difficult without these individuals..very friendly, helpful and always out in the hot sun and always there in the dark night..they are the gem of the hotels..always assisting drivers in parking at tight parking space..totally appreciated their assistance Porter - 2/5 There was no porter on standby at the drop off porch when we arrived..The lobby is elevated at a steep angle hence to prevent unnecessary traffic jam, we have to offload our luggage from our car by ourself and placed it on the steps. Luggage got carried up to waiting area only after i have parked my car. During transfer of baggage and items to the room, porter dropped a bag and broke a glass bottle from one of the bag causing sourvenir and item to be wet ..this happen in front of the lift so im sure cctv would have captured everything so i save myself from a lengthy review on this..up till this review is written, no one came back to me about the broken bottle which the porter was telling me that whats broken is a "mere" glass bottle.. I expected the situation to be handled better since the hotel branding was classified as 5 star..there was no further follow and i was gutted Front office 3/5 The welcome drink and cold towel were nice and promptly served.. checking in took a bit of time.. give yourself a bit of time during checking out as this property is still practicing room check by housekeeping.. *TAKE NOTE* upon entering your room please do a quantity check on all item..i was made to pay 400THB for a missing pair of slippers which was not even worn by my elderly parent on one of our room..the room was make up prior and anything could happen during cleaning so do a quantity check. We have a flight to catch and i dont have the time to further the debate on the missing slippers.. Accessibility (for elderly) 2/5 I travel with 4 elderly parent with mobility issues..they have weak knees..this property is not suitable for certain travellers especially those with mobility issues...to get to our room the elderly have to climb dow a fleet of stairs in which my elderly struggled on daily basis..ammenities like mini golf and archery is out of reach for them as its licated high up the property.. Rooms - 4/5 Room is clean with big balcony to relax.. lights could be a bit brighter as i find it too dim..tv channel were mostly local..as our room is located by the main road, it does get a bit noisy with vehicles zooming pass by.. Breakfast 4/5 Theres quite a good variety of food for breakfast..halal food is served with the halal logo placed on food tray rhat is halal..however i cant ascertain the autheticity.dine at your discretion.. Pool and Ammenities 4/5 The pools clean and have good views overlooking patong..had a great short dip..the sun bed however is placed too close to each other.. mini golf and archery is well maintained and i had a good few rounds of games..theres also a pool ball table and a table tennis table..you gotta find them as there are scattered around.. it would be a great place for youngsters and honeymooners Location - Depends If you want to be smack in the food and shopping scene then this is not the hotel for you..quite near to patong but not walkable unless you are athletic..kalim night street food is nearby too but i didnt manage to go as finding a parking is not easy.. if you want to stay and experience a hilly resort then this might be your option..with elderly..definitely not recommended.. I leave the choice of staying to individual.. 🙏

Inverurie, United Kingdom22 contributions39 helpful votes
First impressions were not great, first room we were given, within 5 minutes we noticed the surfaces were covered in ants, not just 1 or 2, but hundreds. Also my son's bed was covered in stains and not fit for a hostel, never mind a supposed 5 star hotel. However after a phone call to request a manager up to the room, we were offered another room 2 floors up. Same category. This one was clean, however shower broken (small shower head still worked) (toilet was leaking) they were at full capacity so no more rooms available plus we were so tired, we just wanted to unpack and relax. Not much storage space for 2 people, never mind 3, one wardrobe no drawers. So basically lived out of the suitcase for the 2 weeks. There is only 1 lift servicing this whole hotel, the lift is not air conditioned, nor is the lobby. The pool bar is the only place to get a drink/soft drink during the day, service is extremely slow, there is no order, basically a free for all, probably needs to be more structure to this, 1 bar tender doing only cocktails, the other servicing other people soft drinks. It's not hard and could be a good feature. Although you have still got to wade into order a drink. Not really the makings of a 5 star resort. Cocktails are watered down, hardly any alcohol in the drinks. We watched the ratio of mixtures to alcohol served and they were not correct for a proper cocktail. If you are down to the pool past 11am, you won't get a sunbed, not enough room for the amount of people at the hotel, plus they allow people to put towels down and leave them for hours on end while other people are looking for a sunbed. Bar/Restaurant on the roof top was lovely, mainly because of the view, drinks seemed to be more professionally made there. However this only opens from 5.30pm. Food was good, service was hit or miss. One evening service was great, other evenings we waited 1.5 hour for main course and they were not even full. Waiting staff did lots of chatting between themselves. Hotel seems run down, in need of renovations. Within 1 week the ants were back, so we spoke to the maid, she came armed with bug spray from her trolley. This got rid of them for a few days then they were back, last day they were all over my son's bed, so we asked for a deep clean of the room. I couldn't wait to leave after this. Not what you expect. The hotel is about 7 miles from Patong, the shuttle bus takes you into the centre, however with the traffic in the evenings, it took us 1 hour 15 minutes to get in for dinner. So be prepared to wait in traffic, they just can't cope with the amount of tourists. The men who are in reception taking your luggage are a credit to the hotel, very friendly, helpful, I like to end on a positive and they were it in my opinion.

My husband and I love this hotel very much. The hotel staff Abner are very capable and very friendly to us. He helped us carry our luggage to the room and wished us a Happy New Year. We felt really warm. (There was also a staff member who helped us park the car, I forgot to give him a tip and I never met him again, so sorry about that. ). The hotel room is large and very comfortable, can see the sea, and is very quiet. The hotel's restaurant has a great view and the pool is also very unique. Looking forward to coming here on my next trip!

I spent my 30th birthday at one of the beautiful villas at Kalima Resort Phuket and I would say by far this is the best resort I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The view was breathtaking, the food was delicious, the service was exceptional and the location was convenient. This resort exceeded my expectations by far. The staff made my husband and myself feel special from the moment we arrived until the very last second of our departure. I can not see myself staying anywhere else while visiting Phuket. Thank you Kalima!
