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

My girlfriend and I stayed here from Mar 14-19 and we liked it, for the most part. It's a beautiful hotel, quaint and charming. I have 4 minor points to say about it that could use improving. 1. The beds need to be softer. 2. The food is not great, just OK is about it. 3. If you don't like... More

Dear octaneboost, Many thanks for your review and good rating. We do have soft bed toppers for those guests who find our beds too hard. I'm always happy to hear constructive criticism regarding our food, and would appreciate if you contact me direct with specific gripes or suggestions. Thanks again, and I hope to be able to welcome you back... More

We stayed at the Kandaburi, Koh Samui for 3 nights. Overall it was a pleasant and relaxing stay. First the positives: big hotel located on Chaweng Beach, nice swimming pool, good breakfast spread, huge rooms and bathroom (almost like a second room). The area around the main swimming pool next to the beach is really nice!! On the negatives -... More

Close to the main party of chaweng but far enough down the road from all the commotion. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff, nice buffet breakfast. Was upgraded on arrival. Both resturants and pools are very nice and if I were to go to koh samui again would definitely stay here

The hillside room we stayed in was very clean, beautiful and very romantic; as evident by the open bathroom and peeping window! It definitely suits couples on a romantic getaway!
