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.

Great wine list, a very nice view and great food and service. If you are looking for something special and romantic with fine dining food this... More

Quite a strange place. Advertises itself with big Umba umba täterää, with a flamboyant and egocentric "Maitre de Cuisine", but at the end turns out to be just a very overprized average eatery. The staff watches you all the time and asks every 5 minutes if the food is good. That's exactly the question which is quite absurd. If the... More

This is a restaurant that you can't find easily. We drove for 10 mins from downtown to the restaurant after going through a bit uphill road. My wife and I were expected by the waiter as I have made the booking. The waiter firstly introduced the restaurant to us. Interestingly, it is the owner's house and we actually dined in... More
