4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is our 5th visit to Koh Samui. We thought we would try a different resort, but turned out, value and friendliness can only be found at Banana Fan Sea. We will definitely be returning.... Friendly staff, well priced, on the beach, great rooms.... Great combination of what matters.....

We stayed at Banana Fan Sea for 2 weeks in March this year and it was perfect in every way. This was our second stay at the resort and certainly won’t be our last!
