We stayed here for 2 weeks in June 2014. We were upgraded to a deluxe villa immediately from a deluxe room by the hotel as we soon found out we were the only guests in the whole of the resort. The villa was superb and well maintained with excellent views. It was like having your own private desert island as... More

We were sent to Banburee for revitalizing and restoring after 10 weeks of volunteer work. The luxury upgrade was an amazingly generous surprise. Thank you Banburee Hotel, Absolute Fantastic Travel Agency and Royal Thailand Embassy in New Zealand.

Great value for money. The rooms are nice and cleaned very well. When checking the bed linen etc everything was spotless as was the bathroom. The breakfast was brilliant and the hotel had a great swimming pool. We were very well looked after by the staff and can't wait to return to Koh Samui again next year

We were forced to stay here for 1 night due to our original hotel being overbooked. From the outside, the property looks very nice and taken care of but once you enter your room, you realize it has not been updated since the 80's. The rooms were relatively clean but I noticed the jacuzzi tub had hair still in it... More

Very quiet hotel in July! Nice rooms and very kind and smiling staff. Restaurant on site is acceptable but expensive. Pool was being refurbished and (due to low tide and shallow water)the sea was at some distance from the hotel. Used beaches and restaurants in Lamai in stead. Hotel shuttle bus can drive to to Lamai and Chaweng and fetch... More
