“Amazing bed, stunning room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Stayed for three nights after three weeks on Koh Tao. It felt like the lap of luxury. Loved the way someone popped in to turn down the bed each night and leave a red rose and a chocolate on the cover.The staff couldn't be more friendly and the hotel was gorgeous. Hansar is small enough to feel cosy, but big enough for privacy. The pool is the best feature, set against the backdrop of Koh Phanyang. I sat for hours on my balcony just watching the way the light changed in the morning and at dusk. The balconies are gigantic, with massive ceiling fans and a great place to doze in the heat of the day. The rooms are perfect - softest and most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, huge TV with masses of channels and a fantastic walk-in shower room. Breakfast is an enormous buffet. You can order whatever style coffee and eggs you want and help yourself to the rest. And it's all just a two minute walk from the Fishermen's Village. Dinner at the Pier or the Happy Elephant are good options, it was like being on a movie set.

We had wonderful holiday at Hansar Samui Resort. The Sea view room design is fabulous and the balcony make us so relaxing. I love to read book seating in an armchair that is very comfortable. The view of infinity pool is incredible and we did enjoyed swimming at Hansar so much.

Hansar was a great hotel, very good service and better yet the Mojitos ... The pool at the hotel is spectacular, which in my opinion was better than the beach it self (very nice beach but not as better than some of the nicest ones in other parts of the world ... which is no fault of the Hansar). The restaurants at the hotel are also quite good, not outstanding but worth it and usually well executed food. Also the service deserves special mention, everyone seemed extremely friendly. The only negatives to the hotel were we never seemed to get clean towels (90% seemed stained, which is a bit worrying) and the bathrooms are all exposed ... so there is zero privacy ... which is fine for a shower but other things should still be kept private ...

I've stayed in a lot of so-called "top end" hotels across many continents, but this place just has that special something that keeps me coming back. (Even over the W).
Its stunning infinity pool, relaxed atmosphere, amazing rooms, fantastic views, private beach, delicious food from the restaurant and staff who will go beyond expectations to make your stay perfect just make this hotel one of the best in the world in my view.
We met the previous hotel manager - Supit - last year, and it's great to see that his legacy of great service lives on in the hotel where everything remains just perfect. This time, we had an issue where we wanted to extend our stay and the hotel moved mountains to accommodate us last minute - I just can't fault them.
The location is great : far enough away from the village to keep it quiet, but near enough to have access to many restaurants and shops. Private dining on the beach is fantastic, and to us, this place is very much part of the reason we visit Samui.

Room Tip: The XL Sea View rooms are a better option than the beach-front ones, in my opinion.

A stay at the Hansar resort was the climax of our 3 week honeymoon and it didn't disappoint! I would highly recomment this hotel becuase:
1. The rooms were very nice, kept clean and most have a great view out to the pool and the sea
2. Staff are very friendly and helpful
3. The eternity pool is amazing! Great view out over to Koh Phangan as you swim and relax.
4. Location is excellent, a stroll into the Fisherman's village for lots of restaurants and good bars.
5. Reasonably close to Chawng Beach if you want somewhere more lively - about 40 Bhat.
6. Happy hour - 2 for 1 on cocktails twice a day.
7. The restarant is very good - we did a cooking course here which was great.
8. My wife had a spa treatement that she raved about - though it was pricey.
This was probably our favourite hotel ever for the overall experience we had here. A few people mention the road but we barely saw a car use it as they have now directed cars around the back of the hotel! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Don't miss happy hour!

We stayed here for 6 nights on the last leg of our honeymoon. It was a fabulous hotel. excellent staff, friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were amazing. They ask you what type of eggs you want and bacon if you wish and then you help yourself to full english, continental or thai breakfast!! With so many choices it was easy to give something a go!

The location of the hotel is great too. Its in a village, Fishermans village in Bo Phut and the village is full of bars and resturants and independent shops. Its not huge but its big enough that we ate somewhere different every night from all different cuisines.

The people selling on street stalls or in shops are not pushy one bit. They are friendly and like it when you acknowledge them. In other countries its easy to ignore people selling you things becuase they dont leave you alone but here they are so friendly, its nice to chat and see the same people every night.

The Thai people will often invite you in for a drink with them if they have met you before and are out having fun and they see you. If you have time, have a drink with them - but watch out for the Sangsom!!

Overall the Hansar is a beautiful hotel with, i think the most amazing pool i have been to. I can't wait to go there again.

Room Tip: second floor rooms have a great view of the sea from your room

Spent six nights at the Hansar, and wish we could of stayed 6 more!
XL Sea View room - was amazing - great size, great view, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The day bed and balcony were oversized and out of control good!!
Pool & Bar - the staff at the pool bar amde our holiday - happy hour 3 times a day was great. Cocktails were all awesome - I especially loved the Coco Mango and both the Apple and Lychee Martinis! Big thanks to San, Dom and the team at the pool bar for your excellent hospitality, and always ensureing we had enough cashews!!
Breakfast - Good breakfast, but could learn a few things from their colleagues at Hansar Bangkok. Cold drinks need to be cold, not just sat on ice! Service here wasn't as efficient as elsewhere in the hotel, however it was still always very friendly.
H Bistro - had an azing 5 course degustation on the beach. Out of this world food!!
The only downside to this resort were some of the other guests! Dirty Germans who would chain- smoke by the pool all day and didn't care that another non smoking guest was laying 30cms from them. Wuld be great to have the pool - or some areas of it atleast to be non smoking!!
Also the beach looked a bit average - but the pool itself made up for it!

Room Tip: Definately woth the extra money for the XL.
