We had an enjoyable stay during our brief (3 night) stay at Buddy Oriental. The staff were outstanding and helped us book many boat trips and taxis in to town. The room had charming wooden decor and was spotlessly clean. The hotel benefits from two pools. The internal pool is smaller but comfortable and perfect for chilling out in the... More

I wanted to commend the hotel on their prompt attention to an erroneous credit card charge that was not noticed till we got home. We enjoyed our stay at the Buddy Oriental. The rooms were full of character, a simply amazing breakfast included and a lovely pool by the ocean. Yes, the traffic was there, but two walking guards were... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in January of 2014. I was attracted to the place based on the pictures of the pool area, rooms and beach. Well the rooms were nice enough however the nicest pool is across a busy street from the hotel and quite close to the road. Cars and trucks are going by constantly so it's... More

This hotel was so different from the typical resort hotels in Southeast Asia. A huge complex with a variety of restaurants and shops downstairs and colonial style accomodation upstairs. The small beach is across the main road. There is another large restaurant, the pool and a massage place. If you want to enjoy the beach in the back of your... More

This should have been a nice and relaxing holiday in a beautiful hotel with nice surroundings, but ended up in frustration and anger. We stayed in a Deluxe Suite and the room was ok, but the aircondition regulator was broken, so only the on/off function worked. We asked a manager to fix this, but nothing happened. So we have to...

I was very impressed when we arrived at the hotel for our 12 night stay, it was at the end of a little horseshoe of shops and restaurants and looked amazing. Check in was very smooth and the staff were nice and friendly. The room was a decent size with a four poster bed which was very comfortable and I... More

Stayed here from Dec 27th-Jan 7th. Room was a nice style with a huge but very firm bed. Bathroom was ok, could do with a little spruce up but we were hardly in our room so it didn't really matter. The only thing I would say is that the walls seem to be rather thin so there was quite a... More

I stayed here for two weeks in Dec/Jan 2013/14. Rooms are great, very big, clean and bed very comfortable. Breakfast was included and is a bit hit and miss - they seem to try but it needs someone to pull it all together as seemed a little chaotic. A lot of the dishes were served in warmers which did not... More

Stayed here for 3 nights from NYE 2013-14 and so glad we did! I had booked a superior deluxe room as it was my partners 40th birthday which I had told the hotel and they were very lovely in writing 'Happy Birthday' on the bed with the leaves and bringing a cake all lit up by 3 staff singing happy...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Buddy Oriental Samui Beach Resort creates the ambience of cultured elegance and dreamy nostalgia as it welcomes guests. It combines the truly unique concept of both Colonial style luxury and tropical seaside resort. Revive images of living by the sea in olden times, when life is slow and peaceful and dwellings are airy against the backdrop of quiet sea. A stay at this residence is such a happy combination of the old and new as one comes to experience the joys of the beach in the world today and the sentimental yearning for a return to the past as craved by many.
