Had the 5 course meal and it was incredible. Every course was just delicious. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel extremely special. Turns out we had the restaurant to ourselves. The owner even gave us free drinks. Highly recommend. Quite literally a hidden gem.

9 Gems is a true gem nestled in the hills above Chaweng offering spectacular views of Chaweng Bay, Chaweng Lake and of stunning sunsets over the hills to the West. 9 Gems is a very special place to enjoy a premium cocktail or aperitive or a unique dining experience. We decided to experience both. After sunset the atmosphere changes: The... More

Incredible restaurant in Koh Samui! Most amazing view, good food, fantastic deco and great staff. However be prepared to pay the most ridiculously expensive bill.... You have been warned. Still go there one evening it is worth going, honest, it is one of these things in one lifetime...

Hidden away, but worth the find! Friendly staff! Great setting! Amazing views. It was a Thursday night, so we had the whole restaurant and sky bar to ourselves. Great service and the chef was amazing. The food.....Thai influences with classic style of cooking. The chops I ordered was cooked to perfection. Not the cheapest place in koh samui but well...

We were really looking forward to a few hours away from the kids on Valentines night, The views from the restaurant were beautiful however when we arrived it was very windy and opted to sit just close to the bar. The music was too loud. The staff were too attentive making it a little uncomfortable. There should of been more... More

After a windy trip up a fairly un made up steep road you arrive at the modernist monolith that is 9 Gems. Up the glass back staircase you are greeted by one of the friendly servers who shows you around the bar, dining area and guest rooms. You are then lead up another stair case to the 'sky bar' with...

This restaurant is something special. Quite hard to find however worth it for the excellent view of Chaweng, five star service and delicious meals. Although it is expensive for Samui I would highly recommend the visit if you are in Samui for a special night out.
