The room was amazing, however my review is about the internet as well as the breakfast price. It's simply archaic that the wifi is not included, there are so many other beautiful resorts on the island, in quieter areas that offer it in the price of the room. We actually had one of the rooms against the back wall, not a bungalow. i actually liked it better than a bungalow because you had more privacy.

We did 5 days here at the end of Feb 2013 in a deluxe bungalow the resort was great breakfast gave a good choice. I must say the bungalow didn't have much room for our clothes so the sofa acted as my wardrobe while the wife used the small wardrobe. Apart from this it was fine, good air con, kettle for tea and coffee and a TV with a few English channels. We couldn't use the gym as it was being moderised which was a shame as having a gym was a requirement when we booked.
A tip for anyone staying the hotel, they do a this night twice a month which comprises of a meal, a Thai group and traditional dance. It costs a fortune, the food was poor and the entertainment mediocre at best so I'd say give it a miss for what it cost you could eat for 3 days elsewhere.
Talking of elsewhere if you walk out of the hotel turn right the very first restaurant is cheap and the food great.
The beach is okay but the sand is course gravel which strips the soles of your feet of any flesh so wear flip flops, also the sand dips into the sea at a big angle so it gets deep very quickly.
These things are tiny grumbles the resort and rooms are very clean the pool is great. You feel safe at night and it is peaceful. Should you want more action just turn left out of the hotel and walk up to the fisherman's village where its a little more lively with a big choice of bars and restaurants.
We would definitely comeback here.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the beach as ours was set back and make sure the air con works as some don't.

Stayed for 2 weeks of our 3 week holiday in Koh Samui late January 2013 through to early Feb 2013. Was the best hotel of the two we stayed in and we would definitely recommend this place.

Our room was a private bungalow set in lush gardens - no chance of being disturbed by neighbours. We were impressed with the room from the outset - it was elegantly but simply decorated for comfort - lots of cushions. Large comfortable bed with mattress topper and big fluffy pillows. Rooms well equipped with extras like a beach bag for use on the beach, flip flops and slippers for around the room, as well as the usual items like a room safe, air conditioning, hairdryer etc. Even had a universal plug converter. The hotel really had thought of everything you might need. All the bungalows had a private terrace area with table and chairs for sitting out. Loved the knocker on the bungalow shaped like a woodpecker. Housekeeping also left fresh mini bananas in the room. Looked like the pictures which was good as I am quite fussy about hotels!

Room was clean and well maintained by the friendly housekeeping staff. Any minor problems we had (e.g. working out how to use the safe etc), were immediately attended to by the most efficient reception staff. We would make a phone call to reception and within minutes someone would appear at the door. Truly great service.

On my birthday, the hotel even surprised me with a birthday cake (without anyone telling them - they had noticed when they took a copy of my passport)! I was so touched and impressed by the attention to detail.

Hotel also has a nice big pool, a great bar serving freshly prepared cocktails, and a stretch of beach with clean comfortable sun loungers. Hotel ran a barbecue on the beach - good chicken skewers, spring rolls etc, or you can try the good food from the beach sellers.

We went as a couple and there were quite a few couples there, but there were also quite a few families - there was a children's pool, an activity room for children and we also noticed a playground area. There was a good mix of people at the place. So hotel would be a suitable venue for anyone really.

Location was ideal for us - a five minute walk from Fisherman's village, providing great shopping, restaurants and bars. Hotel was so well equipped you don't need to go out, but if you like venturing out, there is a good choice of local restaurants.

The hotel spa is in a separate building across the road from the hotel. Didn't try it, but looked like they had a good range of treatments. There was also a pool side massage sala which offers very reasonably priced massages (again, I didn't try).

Hotel was reasonably priced and we felt we got good value for our money staying there.

Really couldn't fault this place at all. Would recommend and would go back.

This was our 2nd stay at the Peace Resort as we loved it so much first time around we just had to go back and it was better still, we love the location and laid back nature of the resort.

Our room was lovely "Superior Bungalow" equipped with all that you need and uber comfy bed, cleaned perfectly each day, these rooms come with a little deck area which is a perfect place to chill at night. The resort also has a fantastic pool and beach and we never struggled to find sun loungers throughout our 10 day stay. The breakfast buffet is also very good offering all the usual options in the delighful setting overlooking the beach and pool.

If you are familar with Thai hospitality you will know that on the whole it is usually very good and the Peace resort is no exception to this rule with big smiles and happy to help you attitude throughout!

We have travelled to Samui a few times and in our opinion Bo Phut is a great place with something for everyone and much more laid back than Chewang or Lami. You have so much choice of food both in Fishermans village & on the street by the hotel: K-Siri, Hi Noon, A Garden where our favourites on the street and in Fishermans Village: Oasis, Malee, The Hut & The Friendly Frog. Fishermans Village also has loads of European style restaurants or bars to choose from too and you can enjoy cocktails on the beach or in one of the many bars (Coconut & Karma Sutra where our favourites) Also just down the beach from the hotel there are a couple of great bars where you can sit and watch the sun go down, Cactus was our favourite. Dont miss walking street on Friday nights either its a feast of food, entertainment and shopping.

The treatments offered at the hotel are also excellent with the poolside massages offering excellent value for money, we also liked Cactus beach massage and De Spa on the main road.

As you can tell we really love this place and if you need any further info please message me, we have never returned to the same place as there are so many places in the world to see but I know we will travel back to the Peace Resort -we love it!

P.S: Lunch from the hawkers is excellent, you must try the Satay, Papya Salad and Spring rolls freshly made and delivered direct to your sunbed!!

We stayed at Peace resort Feb 5th 2013. It is the most beautiful resort,the staff are just excellent and so friendly. This resort is immaculate and so relaxing and peaceful.The food is to die for,we have never tasted such beautiful food.The pool and the beach are stunning.The service second to none.

Our room was something else, our bedroom was a room within a room,sliding glass doors all round the bedroom which could all be slid open to incorporate it into a whole room,which included a very large deep plunge bath.

Fisherman's village is only 10 min walk away,market on a Friday night, lots of food stalls, all freshly cooked while you wait,live music at the various bars and outside as you walk and lots of clothes,souveniers etc

The only downside is when your holiday is over and you have to leave.

Cannot wait to go back again. We would highly recommend staying at the Peace Resort.

I went there with my partner and a friend couple. We arrived late in the night. Night plunge in the swimming pool, beach great! We discovered our lovely bungalow lost in a lush jungle with squirrels, beautiful flowers and interesting plants. Very intimate, typical thai wooden zen bed. The staff is just so friendly and nice! Breakfast great, all the fruits you want. They even have an egg bar! The pool beach bar is my favorite, I had never so tasty exotic smoothies and which were brought to me whilst I was sunbathing under a white sheeted wooden typical "hut"on the beach, very trendy and zen spirited, huge cushions on beach. In the evening, the beach transforms itself in a very romantic place, low tables candles and cushions on the sand with excellent cuisine. I am from France, and I pretty much have to admit that the food was delicious. Great guitar player and lanterns in the sky. Nothing to say, this place is just one of the best places. Not talking about their zen entrance and the best for the end spa. It was like entering a hidden asian temple or zen retreat, lots of little villas, fontains, ponds and the scent in the air.....a little tea a little cookie before they managed to put all the bits and parts of my back into place! pros! I'm FAN!
