We debated which resort to book and wow, were we glad we chose Tongsai Bay. The property is beautiful and our villa was a dream.
It seemed to be a bit quiet overall at the resort, which was a bonus. (We were there in late June.)
You can see from the photos that the villa is lovely, romantic, and private. Everything was perfectly clean. The bed was very comfortable.
The property has two pools: there is a big one beachside for families; there is one slightly removed that is for adults only, which we very much appreciated.
The breakfast buffet was spectacular.
We had beachside massages, which are given in an open-air covered deck. The quality was great.
We rented a moped one day and ventured down to Changwen and boy, were we glad we hadn’t booked a hotel there. We are adults and Changwen definitely seemed to be the MTV party locale for twenty-somethings. Bophut is definitely more quiet and low-key.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tongsai Bay to anyone. It was fantastic!
A note: the mosquitos are quite aggressive at dusk and during the night: bring repellent.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more less
