W hotel Koh samui was an excellent experience. Accomodations were just perfect from the design to every detail you can think of. Food is good and not too expensive. Views and facilities are amazing, like the pool or the beach. Just a comment on the beach : you cant swim without sea shoes ( that they provide) because of sharp... More

We had an amazing time during our stay in the W Hotel on Koh Samui. Everything from the warm welcome on arrival to the breathtaking views of the ocean from our gorgeous room was absolutely spot on. The service is personal and professional at the same time - exactly what you would expect from a top class hotel. We stayed... More

From the second we arrived to the time we left, this hotel and it's staff did not disappoint us in the slightest. We arrived early in the morning after a long and tiring 15hr flight, unfortunately our luggage did not make it due to transfer problems. However as soon as we entered the lobby we were hit with a view... More

Beautiful resort with an urban stylish touch to it. Feels so different from many of the more "traditional" hotels on the island. Great views from the public lobby area and restaurant areas as well as private, cozy atmosphere at the downhill villas offering private pools. A fabulous breakfast with a huge range of anything you can think of. Also the... More
