Wish we had gotten to stay a little longer! We arrived very late from the airport and had a ferry very early the next morning. We were disappointed we didn't get to meet the owners, but the security guard who checked us in was very nice. After a long day of travel not to mention a lack of showering, this... More

Me and 4 of my friends stayed at Pandora over NYE and it was amazing. I have never stayed at a hotel with such great service. Yunick the owner and Wan who i think is the hotel manager are so helpful and wonderful. We will defintely be returning to stay here for our next trip to Koh Samui.

Great service, Yanek and the team did everything they can to make us feel good. Our room above the spa was simply stunning. Highly recommended. Note: Some taxi drivers may confuse Pandora with Bandara (another property whose name sounds similiar in Thai) so make sure they take you to the correct place.

Really a hidden gem. This hotel looks like a skid row massage parlor from the outside, but step inside and it is absolutely stunning. Great staff and atmosphere. Close to restaurants and nightlife. 7-11 next door. It has everything at a fraction of the price. I loathe Ko Samui. The $400 Baht cab ride to go one mile is ridiculous.... More

Pandora is a bit quirky but mostly in a good way. They have colored lights everywhere and I mean everywhere. The pool is always glowing in different colors as is the light above the bed and below the bed. If it starts to annoy you it is simple enough to turn off, but it is pretty funny. The wifi wasn't...

Nice, comfortable room with good bed, pillow, computer, shower. Very clean and lamps with changing colors. 15 min walk to Chaweng shopping center. Good location. Breakfast included was very good. Service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful people. Downside: no access to beach, and hotel in front (leading to beach) very unfriendly with Pandora guests. We also thought price was... More

Pandora is an oasis of tranquility, located only minutes away from all the action of Chaweng & only seconds from the beach. This was my second visit to Pandora & certainly will not be the last one. Thank you Yanick & Team for your hospitality!!
