“Such a hidden Gem of a hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Wow…this is all I can say about the World Resort hotel on Koh Samui. Me and my now wife went there this Christmas and Newyear and I have to say that they really couldn’t have done enough for us both and really made us feel very, very special. They also have a new head chef there called Joseph who served us some of the very best food I have ever had. What an amazing place, what amazing people and what an amazing wedding, holiday and honeymoon.

Room Tip: The cheap rooms are okay, but well worth the money.

The tropical gardens are lovely, as are the staff. The Xmas and New Year entertainment laid on by the hotel was super. The food was wonderful. Staff went out of their way to assist us with making our wedding day in Koh Samui really good. The new aussie chef in particular was very, very helpful.

We will return again.

This is a great place to stay. The location is good, the rooms are very spacy and clean. We enjoyed the tropical gardens and it is so nice and quite and peaceful. The breakfast - and restaurant is very good. The beach is clean but the water quality was not that good. There was mub on the sea buttom and algae. Overall a good resort with a fantastic restaurant & friendly staff !

This is a great place to stay in thailand and the beach is narrow, but very close. We loved the tropical gardens and it is so nice and quite and peaceful. We stayed her over newyears on 2009-2010. We are now planned our next trip back to Koh samui and this time we are staying for 12 nights at World Resort and we are also getting married on the Island.

Room Tip: I would personally always for for the standard Garden Bunglow as the beach front rooms are next to t...

Lovely hotel. due to its price expected much less. breakfasts are excellent! See this year is not so good on Bophut as there is mub on the sea buttom and algae. be aware that standart rooms are just next to the mani road and it can be quite noisy. And there are loads of kids at the hotel. Beds and pillows are not so much of a comfort but you get what you pay for:)
in the long run excellent three star hotel with everything you need

We spend 3 nights at the World Resort at the end of July in an inter-connecting room. We found the room to be pretty tired looking but certainly clean. What the room lacked the restaurant certainly made up for by serving great fresh food & beautiful fresh fruit shakes!
The hotel was a bit of a walk from the Fisherman's Village which was a bit of a pain when travelling with a 3 year old & we didn't feel the water at Bo Phut beach was that clean ( this of course had nothing to do with The World Resort ).
Overall a good resort with a fantastic restaurant & friendly staff !
