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

First of all this is not a hotel and definitely this is not a resort-it is b&b without a pool. Unless you consider a hole being a pool. As the other reviews pointed out there are no deck chairs and no access to a beach. And no welcome drink is offered.Now we come to the dishonest part...we reserved a room... More

Salut Yannick, I hope you are well. I called today wanting to let you know that we would like to cancel our reservation for Friday. I have some serious health issues (too much sun, dehydration and sensitive stomach) and have been staying in the hotel room most of the time. For that reason we decided to stay in the same... 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!!

What a place to choose, it really set the bar for standard for my three week trip!! Greeted by a friendly owner who showed me around the room... More

I absolutely fell in love with this hotel and my only complaint is that I wish I had stayed longer! After arriving exhausted from full moon party we were so happy to be greeted by a happy smiling face and a nice cold drink. The room was perfectly decorated, well air conditioned with air con and a fan, spacious, contains... More
