Kalima Resort & Spa Phuket

Kalima Resort Phuket Review

Kalima Resort Phuket is a hotel with amazing panoramic views of the immense bay of Patong Beach, built on a green hill near Kalim Beach in Phuket. With such a unique location, guests can enjoy the views but also a strategic location within minutes of Patong Beach without any traffic inconvenience. If you drive north, you will reach the beautiful Kamala, Laem Singh and Surin Beach.

The Rooms

Except for the deluxe rooms, all of the 190 rooms of this trendy resort offer great views of the ocean. Waking up with such panorama through floor-to-ceiling windows is a great way to start the day. Just in front of your room, a large balcony with a table and chairs is a perfect spot to enjoy a sunset with a drink. Of course, the private pool villas would be the best choice if you can afford it, but we were more than happy with our honeymoon suite.

The rooms are more extensive than usual and designed with practical comfort in mind. They offer all the conveniences for today’s active travellers: A large desk, large flat-screen TV with plenty of satellite channels and plenty of universal electric plugs! If you travel with laptops, multiple smartphones and camera battery chargers, you will understand how convenient we found this.

All rooms at Kalima offer a smart choice of 2 wireless internet connections: a fast one for only 150 baht a day and a free one. We tried both, and even the free one was working well enough for us, but as 150 baht wasn’t excessive, we took the fast connection for our entire stay.

 

The bathroom is large and comfortable with a rain shower and a big bathtub (with bath salts), perfect after that very long Phuket exploration day. And you get those nice bathrobes and slippers to get around after your bath. Two other attractive points of Phuket Kalima Resort are the infinity pool and the beautiful panoramic restaurant surrounded by a vast terrace.

Facilities

The swimming pool is not immense but lovely with a swimming area overlooking the bay and a swim-up bar, irresistible during a hot day. Plenty of deck chairs are available all around, but the place is not too large and can get busy sometimes. Kalima Resort Phuket features three restaurants: Lima Rock, Gin Teppanyaki and Sushi Bar, and Malika Terrace and Sky Bar.

This main restaurant is open, making it very airy and agreeable for a lazy breakfast, the day’s most important meal. The buffet has everything you need, and the staff is fast and efficient, even during busy hours. The fitness room is of modest size but well equipped and overlooks the swimming pool; next to it, you will find the kid’s clubs.

Malika Terrace is a rooftop open-air restaurant that provides diners with picturesque views of the Andaman Sea and Patong Bay while enjoying a variety of Thai and international dishes such as grilled meats, fresh seafood, and vegetarian options. Meanwhile, the Sky Bar, located beside the Malika Terrace, offers a diverse selection of drinks such as cocktails, wine, and beer, and serves as an ideal spot to bask in the awe-inspiring scenery of Phuket while unwinding and relaxing.

Busaba Spa and its nine treatment rooms are a must if you are on holiday, especially after too much sun, too much walking, too much party or on rainy days. Note that if you travel to Phuket during the low season and the day appears to be rainy, book the spa early as everyone will have the same plan!

Other non-negligible convenient aspects: the hotel has a mini-mart selling drinks, snacks and the usual items forgotten at home. Surprisingly you will also find a small artificial beach (yes!) and a 9-holes mini-golf anyone can enjoy for free! (7 am – 5 pm). Just note that the hotel is built on a hillside, so there are few stairs and elevators, and it might not be your choice if you have limited mobility.

Summary

As photographers, we need to move around Phuket a lot, and Kalima was the perfect location to reach Patong and any part of the island without too much stress. The hotel’s overall design was refreshing, and the facilities perfectly matched our needs. We enjoyed the large rooms with bathtubs and the superb panorama from our balcony, making our stay very relaxing after long exploration days.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
