We stayed at the next door at the Samui Beach Village and as part of our deal were able to use the facilities next door at the Samui Orchid Resort. However, after a trip around it it became apparent that the facilities were tired, run down and worst of all the animals kept in the 'zoo' were subject to cruel... More

For a family like us, with a 3 year old child, this was a good afternoon. There were two shows; the sealion show and the bird and tiger show. When visiting this make sure you get to see these two shows, without them it might get a bit meagre. As mentioned by others the cages are small, but the animals... More

I cannot believe people have given this place good ratings. It was completely horrible. The adult tiger you can have a picture with is drugged, they throw the baby tiger at you for two seconds, take a photo then throw it back in the cage. The enclosures are tiny, the animals are clearly distressed and show signs of neglect (ie... More

A great afternoon out, especially when the rain came in! Value for money, lots to see. Definitely get there in the afternoon; 1.30pm was the sea lion show and 2.30pm was the tiger and bird show. We fed a baby bengal tiger cub, and this experience was amazing! You do pay extra for this but it is sooo worth it... More

I can't recommend this place at all. The aquarium is depressing, almost completely unlit and totally without signage of any kind. Not even name plates to identify the animals. They cram several large cats into a small display area with a sign saying that this isn't their permanent enclosure. The animals are obviously stressed, pacing back and forth and lunging... More

After reading soo many bad reviews i was contemplating whether or not to bother going, but i'm glad i did! I don't know what people expect! The tigers were not as badly sedated as some of these reviews suggest & as some of the others i've heard about and seen in zoo's in other parts of Thailand. I'm sure you... More

the restaurant is set in an ideal location just back from the beach. the food is Thai with a few European snacks like club sandwiches. the location is perfect with a quite unspoiled beach with cooling sea breezes. the service is quick, the food is tasty and it is not expensive. perfect so whats the catch ?? the management want...
