We stayed elsewhere, so only ate here, but would recommend the restaurant and the gardens generally. It was a very relaxing place to sit and have a beer or two and watch life on the water. We very much enjoyed our meals here, and on Sundays there is live music in the evening. Obviously there are big changes being made... More

Magnificent hotel. I've decided to write this review almost year after the visit. The reason - really warm memories. The things I remembered the most - friendly, helpful and responsive staff, high level European and Thai cuisine (at some point you start to miss european dishes in Thailand, and it's not trivial to find good quality restaurant which serves one),...

What a location! The view from the beach is a classic sunkissed Island view. The sea is pretty much always calm, and although the water is not clear, the swimming was wonderful. Great place to take boat trips from, as the pier is only a few hundred yards walk along the beach. Rooms were pleasant, clean and tidy, was a... More

Great spot right near Big Buddha Beach. Super easy taxi ride from airport and about a 10 min trip from anywhere you want to go around Samui. Rik and "John" (the owners) are helpful and kind. The hotel will be closed for the summer of 2015 though for renovations. We stayed in room 1 and all the other hits are... More

Very nice hotel&restaurant by dutch owners. Calm, good food, nice staff, close to Samui airport and Big Buddha, located at the beachfront of Big Buddha Beach. The bungalows are nicely designed and equipped.

I have stayed at secret garden several times over the last 6 years. This was the first time under new owners. I still love it. The staff are charming and so friendly. We were looked after so well. The bungalows are good value for koh samui. They are only a few metres from the quiet beach. Its just a shame... More

We stayed here for a night on our way to Koh Phangan, and find the place rather having it's own alluring charm. The people are friendly and the food we had at the bar are also relatively good, and fairly priced. The location is perfect being nestled right on the beach. And the hut we stayed in is quite quaint... More

I had been to Secret Garden a number of times, either on the Sunday for the live music or for breakfast/lunch. Great beach, lovely vibe, good entertainment and a good bunch of people running it. So, for my first night in Samui with new g/f, decided to give her the beach bungalow experience. Felt sure that the cute little bungalows... More
