“Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

What a lovely boutique hotel hidden along the road. Quiet paradise on the beach, the villas are spacious, clean and homely. Straight on the beach and close to the restaurants, airport and boat piers, its the perfect place to stay. The pool area is beautifully peaceful and the beach is 2 minutes away. Would recommend this to anyone and we will definitely be coming back!

It is a truly wonderful boutique hotel, with all the amenities of the house. Our place was right on the beach two bedroom villa, with the lovely massage ladies in close proximity, we were getting massage every day, because it was so good and close to us. The manager is more than helpful and welcoming, helped us to arrange all the trips and taxis on our journey. Cannot recommend it enough for the great and relaxing vacation.

Villa Tanamera is located right on the beachfront, which is perfect for a beach getaway for families. This was why we chose this villa, as we are a young family with two children. Unfortunately, our experience there was ruined by the Manager of the villa, Mr Tan. He reprimanded us for using a hand towel to wipe our 1yo daughter's face, saying that the white towels in the villa were not be used for that purpose. We were gobsmacked by his strange and rude behaviour. Having stayed in many villas and hotels with our children, we have never encountered such an ill-mannered staff member. And over such a bizzarre incident...I honestly am not sure what Villa Tanamera wants us to do with hand towels...but wiping your children's face with it is not recommended lest you encounter the wrath of Mr. Tan.
Even after speaking to his supervisor over the incident, we never received an apology from the Manager.
The remainder of the staff there however, were lovely, courteous and professional.
I don't recommend this Villa if you have young families.
Just a note...the location of the villa (and other hotels/villas close to it) are under a flight path. There are lots of planes flying to and from Koh Samui every day, starting from 5:30-6am.

Villa Tanamera is a beautiful peacefule beach villa. So wonderful on a quiet beach with lots of yachts more just offshore. The pool is glorious and the villas are very nice with good amenities. The bay is shelled so not many waves and the water is not AO clear. Beach massage is recommended, easy ride into chaweng, 5 mins from the walking street and restaurants at Fishermans Village. The staff are very attentive and the villa well run by Khun Deng. Thanks for a wonderful Christmas.

Although situated near Buddha beach pier, this place was very unnoticeable and took us a long time to find out. Even the taxi drivers were unaware of this hotel and have a tough time figuring out its location. Tough to get taxi available after 1030PM to move to Chewang or other happening areas if you want to venture for for partying at night.

If you require peace, avoid studio as it is facing the road and there is loud music coming from opposite bar. there are only 2 studio rooms, both facing the road. You will get better places in this price. We booked room with breakfast - which had very limited/no choice - there is just cornflacks and toast etc, even eggs are charged. There is no kitchen in this place, breakfast is prepared in a corner of hotel managers office. Beach is good but has dead fishes floating.

While booking the room from agoda, we specified that the room should not be facing the road. However this information was not provided either by agoda or on the hotel website. Upon arrival, when we refused to adjust to the noisy studio, the manager very bluntly gave us 3 choices -
1. take this room
2. pay for the upgrade (though discounted to thb 500)
3. leave and look for another place OR talk to agoda directly to sort.

Thanks to Agoda, after a 45 minutes call they assisted us in complimentary upgrade to pool side villa as we almost decided to leave this place to another hotel.

It is an good place to stay if you are travelling in a group of 4 or more. you can opt for bigger villas with 2 rooms.

Room Tip: Look for more options around this hotel incase you want to stay in this area

Love...Love this Villa with direct access to the beach.....looking for quiet enviroment ,peaceful atmosphere and a complete rest....than stay here. There are only 6 villas with a small swimming pool. The villa that I stayed known as Sala Villa comes with 2 rooms ,living room , a kitchenette , TV, DvD/ CD player and a private roof terrace with a beautiful sea view. I spent 5 nights. There are good restaurants nearby. A 10 minits drive will take you to the Fisherman's Village and approx.15 min to the Airport. The Resident Manager is so helpful and likewise the staffs. The place is clean. Not a single complain. Will definitely go back and will try to get the Beachfront Villa....

Room Tip: Travelling in 4's than I would suggest the Beachfront (best) or Sala or Poolside Villas. Single...

Tan is a gentleman. He can't do enough to help you out.

Great place for a stopover before our flight out the next day. Tan suggested we go to the Fishermans Wharf for the evening to check out the market - he was right! It was very good and the wife got the ring she was looking for.

They also drove us to the Wharf, collected us and then did the same again the next day for the airport. Excellent service.

We were 2 adults and 2 boys under 4. They loved the pool. We stayed in a poolside villa which was perfect for what we wanted.

Recommended!

Room Tip: If you want the Beach Villas then you need to book direct on the Villa Tanamera website, but Tan sai...
