Beautiful, spacious rooms and hotel, but the beach is small and not ideal. The complimentary breakfast is not even worth the free cost. How do you screw up a banana pancake? The service by the servers is awful. Water in the shower stays warm for maybe 30 seconds and the water pressure is so inconsistent. They try to add a... More

Luxury from beginning to end! Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone, especially those on their honeymoon. I was travelling with a friend however this would be a prefect place for honeymooners. It's right on the beach and it's beautiful. The rooms are massive and all have jacuzzi baths. The gArdens are stunning. And the food is amazing. Will hopefully... More

This hotel could not have a better location. There is no hustle bustle on this quiet side of the island. The hotel itself is situated right on the beach with the restaurant directly beside. We chose a jacuzzi villa which was very tranquil. In the evening all you can hear while sitting on your patio is the sound of fish... More

We have just returned from a 10 stay at the Kanok Buri. This hotel is average, that's not a negative, it's just an average hotel, nothing to complain about but I personally feel there was nothing to 'rave' about. It's clean in a stunning setting and ok value for money. The staff were very helpful and friendly and would call... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. Pool room was shaded by a huge tree so no sun came through. Pool therefore cold. Limited beds at beach which were very shabby and uncomfortable. Breakfast average but when we got there at 9.45 hardly any food left and not replaced. All self service including getting your own cups etc. Staff seemed reluctant... More

My girlfriend and I stayed stayed at Kanok Buri Resort for one night during our stay on Koh Samui. The hotel itself is located on the west coast, 45 minutes away from the airport, and is out of the way from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng (which is on the east side). It is also close to Nathon Pier... More

I stayed at this hotel as I needed some rest and some peace. The hotel certainly gave me that. I was also attending a wedding a few hotels away along the beach. I had lovely walks on the beach, plenty of time to read and it was very quiet. The main sound at night was the croaking of the frogs.... More

Stayed here for two weeks and had a good time. Very friendly staff at reception as well as restaurant. It's not a luxury resort but it's clean and well kept. The bathroom is not the newest but cleaned up daily. The jacuzee deluxe is exaggerated, and we never used it. The pool is too small and there is too much... More

We stayed here for just 1 night and overall we were quite impressed. The location is quite remote however as we had previously stayed in Chaweng this was really what we were after. It's also only a short taxi journey to the main pier. The room we had was large and clean. The stand out feature however was the staff,... More
