We went for lunch today and the food was great! Service was definitely of Thai standard however you are in Thailand. Nice and friendly owner and staff. Food was delicious. The band was just starting up for their Sunday session. I'll be back there for sure.

A friend of mine put me onto this place, like most decisions you make about where and what you see come from your friends telling you, so anyway, he was right, a very lovely place, right on the waters edge, very central to Bangrak Big Buddha in Samui, 5mins from the Airport. Where to start, I guess the most impressive... More

My partner and I booked this resort back in April after much deliberation. Some of the trip advisor reviews made us a little unsure at the time, in particular comments about the food and as a silly as it sounds I wasn't that impressed with the website. A month later we received an email saying the resort had been taken... More

This was our first time in Koh Samui so we weren't sure what to expect from the hotels. After weeks of research, we stumbled across this hotel which seemed resonably priced. After a few emails from the owner, we managed to get ourselves booked in to a 'beachside' bungalow. We were not disappointed whatsoever!! The bungalow itself was beautiful. It's... More

This was our second holiday to Koh Samui our first stay had been at the Centara Villas and we were after a different holiday experience this time round. We had planned one week at Secret Garden and then a second week in Lamai (see review of Varinda Garden). We chose Secret Garden because of its close proximity to the piers... More

I wasn't going to write a review of this hotel - because I felt it might not be fair to the owner - but I had booked for six nights and only stayed one for reasons which I will explain and which were not the owner's fault. However if any other traveller had mentioned the facts that caused me to... More

This is a charming property, right on the beach in Mae Nam. The grounds and gardens are attractive, and the staff are friendly. There were a few things that detracted from our overall experience, however. We stayed in a beachside bungalow (room number 3) for 1500THB, while my sister booked a standard twin room for 700THB. The beachside bungalows were... More

We loved the Secret Garden. The service, the location, the bungalow were wonderful. I liked the coffee maker and lounge chairs. It's on a quiet but not dead part of the island and we loved the nearby street food and the Thursday night market in Mae Nam. Would def return. John the owner is lovely as well :)

May this year we stayed at this coulorful, lovely place with a magnificent view. The bungalow was very well equipped with an outdoor shower, TV and DVD and a balcony. There is a cozy bar and a nice restaurant and two beautiful sala's, filled up with heaps of pillows to relax. In the morning you can make your own coffee,... More

After MUCH searching on TA, we decided to book Secret Garden, and are so happy we did! We were looking for a quieter resort, but with tons of restaurants/pubs nearby, a beach free from crowds, and a bungalow on the beach (versus 'beach view'). Hit the mark on all fronts! Room: Beachfront bungalow is less than 50 feet away from... More
