If you want to get away from it all - then the Renaissance Koh Samui is the place. Very romantic setting with lots of privacy space. The Sap is just out of this world. Ask for Tan when making appointments. she is the best. The day starts of with a great breakfast and improves throughou the day. You will find... More

Good facilities. There are two pools in this hotel. Beach front pool has a nice view, a lot of people use this pool. But Leelawadee lap pool is a good choice, if you prefer to be quiet. The beach is accessible but it is not a good choice for swimming. Breakfast buffet at Banana Leaf is fantastic! There are plenty... More

Tropical island view in every direction, beach facing the famous island from the Leo Dicaprio movie "the Beach" directly in front of your eyes, but just as perfect. The most underrated of all the Thai islands, this place is just right for everyone. It;s not a stop for the annoying 40+ backpacking German tourist who has been on holiday for... More

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel with our little daughter. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the people are very nice and helpful. The beach is not crowded and when you look for privacy it is definitely the hotel to go. The pool is wonderful and also not crowded. The food in both restaurant is also very good. They... More

We stayed at the Renaissance for 8 nights and just returned home from Thailand. We chose this hotel to use up Marriott Rewards points and qualified for a deluxe gardenview room. Hoping we could pay to upgrade to a villa upon arrival, we were disappointed as the hotel was completely full. However we were pleasantly surprised by our room! The... More

Inimate enough to feel like a boutique hotel but large enough to accommodate a meeting for 100 this hotel really is a gem in Thailand. The location is quiet and idyllic, the grounds are magnificent and the rooms are a magical blend of Thai elegance with modern amenities. Best of all, I have never stayed anywhere in Asia with greater... More

The Renaissance is a beautiful property with gorgeous villas. We had a wonderful stay and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Service was excellent and the location was not as bad as other reviews made it out to be. Most all of Samui's upscale resorts are off the main road and once at the hotel, we rented a moped... More

This is a beautiful hotel. I usually don't like how large mega-chains are decorated but this was definitely an exception. We had a large suite with a wraparound balcony with an amazing view. Ok, I loved the room did not love the service. The front desk staff were downright SURLY... when we asked for any kind of help it was... More

My husband and I just spend 12 days at the Renaissance Koh Samui and enjoyed every minute of it. The resort is beautiful with a private beach and two pools. Our villa was beyond what we had imagined including a private pool. We spent most of the day in this romantic setting relaxing and reading. The restaurants especially TaWann are... More
