We stayed at Pandora only for one night but had a great time here. The decor is strange but it actually works - bright, comfortable, cheerful. The staff were incredibly nice. Great breakfast, nice pool, great location close to the airport and pier but not as busy as the centre of Chaweng. Beds were comfy and the bathroom was great.

Lovely hotel, but don't expect a resort with tons of activities and restaurants. It's a small little hotel at a courtyard from a designer with a Ibiza style view. Rooms are very clean and the lights are making it romantic. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We directly got a room upgrade cause of low season. Bed is pretty hard... More

I visited in May which is low season, the sauna wasn't on but with it being 30 degrees you don't need it. The Jacuzzi wasn't on but I didn't mind as I got to have a little swim. I got upgraded and my room was lovely. Having security was nice. Whilst you do have to walk to the main street... More

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...
