“probably the best time in a beach ressort I have ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

I have just spent 5 nights in Sea Dance and must say that I am already thinking about when can I come next time. The place is close to what I regard as the perfect ressort for me.
The owners have hit the nail cleanly in designing a - by the way independent (!) - ressort where everything is just right. The right amount of creature comfort and pleasantries without unnecessary luxury. No security guards, but extremely attentative and warm-hearted staff. No concrete walls but coral-lined paths and bamboo fences. A wonderful pool and an impecable attention to detail when designing the bungalows. Don't bother with something else when staying in Samui - just go to Sea Dance!

The rooms with the pools are delightful and yes the beds from the public pool area and sea look like they're floating above the ground. Shower area is fabulous and the safe is "different but clever". The lamp shades are made from washed up coral something different.

The food in the restaurant is out standing and the access to the sea is on your door step.

You have to try the coconut ice cream with mango slices with a hint of mint for dessert - "A must"

For a different meal go to the main road and there is a bamboo bar called "Relax" great Thai food.
The shops are 1km away, so walking is a bit far but get yourself a motor bike it's a lot easier and safer - "well then walking".
Poy will go out of his way to help you with all your needs.

Pack:- Sunblock - Mosquito spray - Rash vest - Hat - Good book

Room Tip: choose a room with a private pool - the one on the far left looking at the sea is very private!

Dear J&R,

Thank you for your time on sharing your Sea Dance experience. It is wonderful that you have noticed a little details of our own design furniture/decorative items.

Coconut ice cream topped with sweet ripe mango is a popular light and delicate ending of authentic tasty Thai food.

Last night we was our barbecue on the beach night, it was so much fun, you could join and make your own Somtam (green papaya salad) if you wish...

We are looking for ward to your next visit.

Kind regards,

Well where should I start? The excellent food, excellent acommodation or the very friendly and very competent staff? Our stay (2 adults and one teenager) exceeded all our expectations. From the very first moment on we felt welcomed and comfortable.
The rooms are very clean, lovely decorated and it feels like a home, you can return to after a nice day on the marvellous and picturesque beach. Poy and Junior did their very best to fullfill all our wishes. It was a real pleasure to stay at sea dance resort and we hope to meet again soon.

Our very best

This place is just ok for me - thought it was really quite expensive for what it was. Junior made it for us, he was really genuine and helpful. At times we felt a little like they were trying too hard to impress. Also the room was just ok. What they don't tell you is tons of Mosquitos as the bathroom is basically outside with creatures around you. After reading all the amazing reviews we really expected the world, and they just didn't deliver. great food but expensive - took the free kayak out on the sea which was a nice touch. 4 stars but maybe should be less however junior, food and kayak made it for us.

Dear AnS7000,

Thank you for sharing your Sea Dance Experience. Your stayed in Aug 2014, our small Sea dance team were in operation less than 6 months. I totally understand that we may appeared to you that we are trying too hard at times. Being anticipated to guests needs at the same time being invisible required skills and a great team effort that we are trying and hoping to achieve and we thank you for sharing your feedback.

Despite daily mosquitoes coil burning, spraying and monthly property spraying we are still facing a challenge with number of mosquitoes, with that being said insects, ants and geckos etc are part of an island tropical creatures that will always exist.

I am glad that you enjoyed free Kayak and great food, Junior is an outstanding person and equally important part of a great Sea Dance team.

Once again, thank you for being our guest and we hope to welcome you back again at Sea Dance.

Kind Regards,

poy & sea dance team

Have spent 5 wonderful days with my daughters at the pool villa. What a nice, pleasant and quiet place.
We all appreciated the decoration of the villa and all the environment.
Special thanks to Poy and all the staff for their warm and dedicated care of us.
Sure a place to go where you will feel like home.

Room Tip: Pool villa No 1 is really exceptional

Dear JP,J&J, Thank you for sharing your Sea Dance experience on TripAdvisor as well as your feedback and point out an area that we can improve on such as to be more efficient on clearing up the table etc. I appreciate the fact that you really care to bring it up to my attention and we are currently working on improving it.

Being number one on TripAdvisor above 311 hotels on Koh Samui is really something that we do not expect it to happen, especially in less than six months of the operation of independent own/manage resort. I awe it to my good small team and grateful for all customers who are being part of Sea Dance story.

Should think of any other things that we can improve.work on please feel free to contact me directly at: poyatseadance@gmail.com.
Kind Regards,

Poy & sea dance team

What makes the Sea Dance Resort a really great place to stay is the personal attention from Poy and his team. Poy, Junior, Quan etc really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They make sure they know the names of each guest, remembers what you drink, what you like to eat etc.

The resort is situated in Bophut, 10 mins by car from Chaweng but away from the noisy nightlife of Chaweng. The beach is very private and clean. The resort is new and only opened in 2014. The rooms are in the form of mini standalone villas, some with their own private pools. We stayed in one of these and had a perfect sea view. The room interior is very modern, Thai theme and very well equipped.

Facilities in the resort include an excellent thai restaurant, infinity pool basically on the beach, nice pool bar, kayaks etc. Most evenings when it is not raining the team prepare tables on the beach for really awesome beach dining.

There is a well equipped shop and car rental 5 mins walk away. The resort also arranges transport in Chaweng, fishermans village etc on request.

Well done Poy and Team. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend your resort.


Regards

Many thanks to Junior and the team for making our stay here so awesome.

Sea Dance is a newly built resort in the bophut region of Ko Samui. (tip: as it's quite new, some of the locals may not know it yet. If you need to get transport or ask for directions, say it's next to Akaryn Resort)

The rooms are based off the African style round huts which makes the interior very spacious. Inside is a very comfortable bed and powerful aircon also. Needless to say, it is very clean and immaculately kept (as is the rest of the resort).

There are many personal touches put in by the owners (Poy and Junior) into the design of the resort. They do not rely a lot on external contractors, but the resort staff work together to make the changes.
The end result is that the environment is very warm and inviting. Although there are other guests we felt like we had the resort to ourselves.

Hope that we can visit again in the future. Interested to see what new changes there will be. Definitely will recommend Sea Dance to our family and friends.

Dear G&B, Thank you for sharing your sea dance experience on TripAdvisor. It was great to have you as our guest on a very short notice, it was uncommon to receive your call from BKK in the morning and to welcome you in the afternoon.

In deed Sea Dance is less than 6 months old and response is overwhelming. A lot of Samui taxi still don't know where Sea Dance is and our future guests read a lot of generous reviews which raise expectations of the future guests. I hope that we will not disappoint our future guest.

Kind regards,

Poy
