“An excellent resort in beatiful surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

We went to Samui for the fourth time this january to get away from the snow and winter in Europe. Rockys resort is one of the best we have been to so far. As a high end resort, Rockys has exellent service and serves a wonderfull breakfast with an outstanding beachview. The resort is seated in beautiful surroundings not to far away from Lamai beach. The service is efficient and professional. And the resort is stylish with exellent resturants. The "Dining room" has exellent international cuisine. The Bistro is more relaxed for dinner, and a better option for dinner when travelling with children. Both are quite expensive, but serves very high quality Thai and international food. The childrens club is well equiped and close to the garden pool wich was convenient for getting the smallest children out of the heat during the warmest part of the day. Enough towels, and complemanary water and fruits by the pool during the day are among the small things that makes this a place of especially good service. An overall good hollyday experience. If anything is to be noted for the management is to ensure that the friendly and attentive staff in the Bistro should continue to improve effectiveness in picking up orders, and bringing out drinks (and food) especially as children can´t wait for too long. Will definitely reccomend Rockys among the Samui top places to stay for an excellent holliday.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with family

Thank you for your kind words, I wish we did have a gym/fitness room, but alas no space for it. Our website does clearly show that we do not have on but do offer free complementary vouchers to use a local gym.
Saying that, we are considering plans to add a gym at a later date.

Rocky's Boutique Resort is absolutely fantastic!
We stayed in the junior beachfront suite closest to the pool and only a few steps to the beach. The decor in the room was beautiful, we loved the bathroom, and the bed was comfortable.
The included breakfast was great value and all drinks / meals by the beach just what you wish for when booking a island holiday.
A massage in the outdoor day bed on the rocks by the beach is a must and the lighting at night reminds you how lucky you are to be staying at Rocky's.
It's only a short drive to Lamai beach by taxi and after exploring both Lamai and Chaweng we were ecstatically happy to be back at Rocky's.
If you are happy to be away from all the hustle and bustle of tourists in Chaweng and Lamai then Rocky's is for you.
The staff are very helpful, friendly, with great personalities and they made our stay memorable.

Room Tip: The junior beachfront suite closest to the pool is only a few steps to the beach

My initial reason for staying at Rocky's was due to my correspondence with Ms. Roong. She was so helpful in booking my stay at Rocky's and for being so prompt in replying to all of my questions via email. Her professionalism made my visit close to perfect. I cannot begin to name all of the staff who were so kind and helpful. Everyone from the office ,restaurant, pool, beach, maintenance, drivers, room cleaners, massage ladies....there are too many to mention. However there is one member of the staff who seemed to be at Rocky's day and night who I watched interact with all of the guests. Mira was beyond amazing in how she seemed to be everywhere at the resort and was constantly helping guests. Her attentiveness to everyone and everything at Rocky's was beyond amazing. And her interactions, friendship and working relationship with the rest of the staff showed how truly professional Mira is. Aziz, Julian, Martin, Jack and Boat are also an integral part of the Rocky's team. I hope Rocky's doesn't lose any of these staff to some other resort on Samui. As long as they are there I will return and so will many of my friends. My only concern is the gorgeous ambiance of Rocky's is lost on occasion due to so many children at the resort. Rocky's is stunning and gorgeous and the ambiance does not lend itself to the family scene as much as it does to couples and adults. And my room and the food was fabulous!

Room Tip: Rooms by the garden and pool are great and a bit less expensive. The suites by the ocean are fabulo...

Thank you Tim, we all miss you already.
If you want to stay away from children, and there are not that many here except for peak season, use the small beach by the beach front room 333.
I feel disappointed after reading your review that we only got a 4/5, may I ask where we went wrong?

Rocky’s is one the places everyone should be able to visit at least once.

The rooms are beautiful, full of details with gorgeous ornaments and stunning choice of colors. Food is probably best on the island and staffs are excellent. The only negative thing is their popularity in wedding business. One wedding ceremony during your stay makes the week feel special (the flower arrangements were gorgeous) but after three drum parades you start thinking of going out to the town to avoid the noise. You can avoid it easily though, by taking one of their free kayaks and kayaking away for an hour or by staying at the second pool up in the garden. The resort has two good-sized pools that sit well to the landscape, and the garden is lush. They even have a little river there.

The best thing about Rocky’s? It’s people. Everyone were polite, friendly and accommodating but some were just stars: Thank you Julian for your professional yet very friendly attention, Azizs for the best food we have ever had (if you start cooking classes for fine dining, we will be straight back at Rocky’s), Mira for amazing assistance with all our trips, teaching us Thai and always keeping us updated of daily activities (Do you ever sleep??) and Martin for always having time to have beer with us on happy hours.

Thanks all for great stay, you made our holiday perfect!

Thank you for your lovely comments, I will pass on you comments to the team. It's true we do have a lot of weddings, we average about 1.2 a week so you were unlucky to have a few in a row, however we never have 2 days in a row. They are usually well spaced out. If in doubt do check with us next time.

The resort is so beautiful and tranquil. We needed a week of relaxation and that is exactly what we got. They treat the guests like family. If you need anything, they take care of it. I actually had to go to the hospital for a medical emergency and they were so kind. They had the shuttle take us and asked how I was doing throughout our stay. They made the situation much better and I am grateful for that. We haven't taken a relaxing vacation like that since our honeymoon and we travel a lot! So thanks again Rocky's for making our vacation amazing!!!

Room Tip: If you don't mind a climb up the stairs, the higher rooms have a great view!

Before I start, I dont know who Matt N is, see his review but he/she obviously has delusions of grandure!!!!! Ignore his comments.
We have have just returned from a two week holiday in Thailand including 7 nights spent at Rockys and what a wonderful experience we had. From arrival to leaving we received nothing but first class service. Our room, a garden view room, was very clean and spacious and the bed and pillows were really comfortable Ok the view from the balony was not spectacular but personally I would rather watch a sun set sat in a bar on the beach from than from my room. I could controll the air conditioning (which was also very quiet) perfectly to ensure a good nights sleep. The food in the "Bistro" was very good and in the "Dining Room" excellent. The service from all the staff was very good with all the unconditional politeness you get from Thai people. I would particulary like to thank Kott (thanks for the constant supply of water and fruit skewers by the pool), Boi, watch you toes!!! (only joking) and Tiew who always showed interest in what we were doing each day. This hotel really comes into its own at night with the magical lighting throughout the gardens and around both restaurants. We dined 4 times in the "Dining Room", a buffet night and a Thai night, a Valentines special evening which was magical, sat at a table on the rocks overlooking the sea (how romantic does that get) and our final evening from the al acarte menue and all the food was excellent, the chef is top quality. What could they do better? - not much, we had a brilliant holiday and would definately return in the future.

Thank you, Our garden view rooms are just that, and they are our cheapest rooms too, for a great view, try rooms 903 to 906, amazing ocean view rooms. Actually the owners villa is now available, a 2 bedroom 2 story Thai villa, great view from upstairs with you own private balcony.
