Stayed here 3 nights on a business trip in Nov 2014 in a deluxe room which was massive with a huge walk in bathroom. Unfortunately I was given a room right at the end of the highest floor so I had virtually no view of the sea or beauty of Koh Samui. Wi-Fi was not free but worked well enough.... More

We stayed hillside (quieter with less kids) but you do feel isolated from proper food, beverage and service. Often you would wait an age while something was brought up from the main resort area. We were also told we were unable to choose which restaurant to have breakfast at, as they were so busy. Breakfast at the lower restaurant was... More

This is a nice property, but tired, in need of some update and repairs. Firstly the room. We had room 134, at first a great location on the ocean side, very close to the pool and bar area. The room is large but you enter from outside through the bathroom. It has a good view of the pool and garden... More

I had read a lot of reviews on this hotel through Trip Advisor and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I had read a lot about the rooms smelling, being dirty and noise at the sea side if the hotel - what rubbish! We stayed at the sea end of the hotel. Had to pay more for it,... More

Stayed for 5 nights in a hillside room. Room was clean and comfortable and the large bathroom provided enough room to spread out toiletries for a change. Breakfast was really nice with plenty of choice. The staff at breakfast were all friendly and efficient. 2 gripes: 1) The pathetic wi-if signal. We have stayed in hotels all over the world... More

We had a beachside room and you couldn't really ask for more regarding the position. Hotel grounds were lovely and well kept and the beach was on your doorstep. Pool was lovely, staff were attentive and pleasant. Food was good. It was a short walk to Chaweng centre but they had a courtesy bus anyway. Elsewhere would be visited by... More

Our party had three hillside rooms. They were huge and very well laid out, with balconies. We could easily have fitted in at least two extra beds. A major plus point was the provision of lots of well-positioned power points. Bathrooms were huge too, with separate bath and walk-in shower. The shower worked well and it was easy to control...

I travelled as a single and had a top floor, hillside room with a view of the sea and pool from my balcony. The room was wonderful; clean and serviced daily. One little niggle, the slippers were used and were not replaced. A reminder to singles though, the hotel charges a 1000bht fee if you happen to be lucky enough... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Kandaburi and had a good time. The rooms are big and clean, the bathrooms are huge. The location of the hotel is nice because is only a few minutes walk to all the restaurants and bars in Chaweng. The beach un front of the hotel is nice and is shallow, so kids can... More
