Hard to believe how can it be possible to get in one place so many cosy and lovely things. From Yamaha motorcycle and old type-machine to hand-made decorations from surface and floor to trees. very green, very quite, very comfortable for couples and single thinkers.

Varinda Resort I was so pleased to find this quiet special gem in Koh Samui. The architecture is sublime and respects the natural surroundings to compliment them not be invasive. So many colors, so many lovely details to capture your eye and mind. The staff are kind and caring but let you enjoy your private time, while engaging when you... More

we stayed for 3 nights, with my sister and daughter staying on for a further 3 nights also. We loved the unique and quirky decorated jungle setting - there is literally a maze of interesting pathways adorned with anything and everything from the ground to the treetops. It simply must be seen to be appreciated! The pool and waking to... More

There is some overdue maintenance of the houses. The rooms were not cleaned properly. In our houses, we found a number of things from the previous visitors. The beds are pretty hard and the disco noise was clearly heard in the cottages. When you want to use the bath tub then you can not fill the bath at one time,... More

A really cool and amazing resort with friendly staff and in a really traditional jungle tropical paradise. Good breakfast and great view of the bay. Stayed there for 7 nights and what an experience! You have the best of 2 worlds: serenity and peacefulness in the resort and the zany night life entertainment less than 10 minutes away. Would certainly... More

Varinda Garden Resort. Do not stay here you will deeply regret it. Most of the good reviews for this place are for 1 or 2 nights stay only. It Is without doubt one of the worst resorts I have ever been unfortunate enough to stay at, it is ran by very unpleasant cheating scammers. It is run down and very... More

I only had one day at the Varinda, but it was exactly what I needed to unwind and decompress after experiencing the havoc of Koh Phangan. The rooms are spacious and charming with a slightly rustic personality. The staff were friendly and took great care of me. I wish I'd have booked more time there, but I will definitely be... More

I like to travel and I try (I don't succeed everytime) to find special hotels,avoiding steel and concrete. If you want to stay in an organized jungle,feel with local art (excepting certains glitches),good art...this is the place! Bungalows are very rustic,basic,but extremely cozy. Everywhere you look is an organized chaos witc make you feel at home. The view from the... More
