“Amazing hol!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My husband and I travelled to Thailand for our honeymoon back in Feb 2012. We stayed at several hotels and one of them was Rocky.

Wow wow wow! What a great hotel! So clean and every tiny little details was well thought of. We had a great sea view room. Staff were extremely friendly and we felt so welcome. The atmosphere was very serene. I loved the decor!!

The only little niggle would be I didn't find much veg option at the hotel restaurants. And there isn't a variety places nearby...

Thank you, You would be pleased to know that we have a full vegetarian menu at The Dining Room, including a 5 course vegetarian meal.
We are currently working on a vegetarian menu for the Bistro, however if you ask, we can make any dish in to a vegetarian one.

Nice ambience, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are decorated with fine details. Rooms are clean and tidy. The place is quiet and relaxing. The only drawback is there is limited shops and entertainment nearby. U need to call a taxi or rent a car to travel around.

We have been at Rockys in November 2009, so it's quite a while ago, but I still remember regularly the excellent Thaifood-Buffets. It was so very good and so was the breakfast and their food generally.
The staff was lovely and very helpful and the location is a dream.
We stayed in a bungalow in a "back row" but for some reason (we never really found out why) had a upgrade to a bungalow with ocean view. We were really lucky!!!!!
I had several massages and they were great and I really can recommend this place.
When we chose Rockys I read other testings before and one complained about stones in the water. I never found out what this person was talking about, all I noticed was nature!!!!
We definitely had a wonderful time there!

My wife and I spent eight days of our honeymoon at Rocky's in August 2013. We had originally booked to stay at Bandara but extensive building work meant that we had to change hotel. I am so glad that we did because Rocky's is absolutely beautiful! The staff were brilliant - extremely friendly and willing to bend over backwards to meet your every need. Lucas, the manager (not sure if I've promoted him there), was brilliant. He was aware of the problem we had with our travel agency and did everything in his power to make our stay at Rocky's as enjoyable as possible. Boat, Q, Cherry and Nam were just a few of the staff who went beyond the call of duty. The rooms are beautifully designed and furnished. One thing that struck me most was the attention that is paid to detail. Things are provided that you don't actually realise you need until you see them. For example, sun hats are provided - something I didn't bother bringing but ended up getting full use of. Moreover, the food is delicious. So much so, we ate most nights in the Bistro. However, he food in the main restaurant was a little too expensive. Overall, an amazing experience. I would certainly recommend this hotel, and definitely go back.

Wonderful stay! We were welcomed at the airport by our very friendly driver, and cold bottled water and a cold towel to refresh (I recommend getting them to meet you at the airport)! When arriving to the resort, we were welcomed with a tropical fruit drink, fresh local fruit in our room, and given a hut on the beach with a little deck! The resort was so accommodating and made us tour plans of our choice every day (snorkeling, riding elephants, scooter rentals, etc). They even have movie rentals if you want to stay in, and a kayak to take right from the beach! The restaurant has a very large menu from around the world and (what seemed like) entertainment for the guests every night. You cannot beat their location on the rocky cliff, VERY romantic! Bring your mosquito repellant however, Koh Samui has bugs; but that's not Rocky's fault. :) I would go back in a heart beat. We had couples massage every day ($15?! Why not!). Go, Don't wait any longer.

Room Tip: We had a Jr. Suite Beachfront, and it was more than enough room for the two of us; just beautiful.

Truly wonderful honeymoon spent at Rockys. Villa had sea views which were spectacular. Large villa with separate seating area and large shower / wet room. Beautifully decorated throughout.

Service was faultless from the Rockys driver to the waiting staff.

Two swimming pools available which we seldom used as spent most time in the sea (rather 'rocky though' or travelling around the island in one of the resorts hire jeeps.

Fantastic food, spoilt for choice with selection on offer, with a variety of seating options. Spent one night on the edge of the water with candle light watching a firework display - magical. Meals and drinks can be costly and we spent a number of evenings in the nearby town of Lamai.

Had wonderful massage on large beds on the sea front.

Would probably return, but may try one or two different resorts first.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea front villa as they have more level access than properties further up the site

This was a great choice as we wanted somewhere to relax and have some peace and quiet. It was perfect in this sense. Staff really made everything easy and really made the stay brilliant. Not the best choice if you are looking for a "beachfront" hotel as the hotel's name says it all but if you like good views of the ocean and the sounds of the waves but dont really want sand between your toes this is perfect, and it was perfect for us!
