Just had 5 nights very enjoyable nights at this quality resort.
Downside: struggle to fault this property , rooms, staff or facilities.
Location is well away from main Samui shopping and nightlife areas, however we believe that is an attraction if you are seeking a self contained resort.
Previous reviews have complained about renovations causing some disruption.
There is evidence of upgrading of several villas. However this appears to be done on a very low key basis , did not detract in any way and will no doubt continue to improve the property overall.
The location may
be an issue for some guests.
However, there is a small local village with excellent Thai restaurants and local transport can be easily arranged, or the hotel can assist.
The resort is built on a cliff and is well spread out. May not suit elderly with mobility problems, although a buggy service is readily available
The nearby Island View local restaurant is a must and they will also arrange transport, boat tours etc if you wish.
I Talay restaurant north along the beach also worth a try.
Don,t let location of the Intercontinental put you off.
Upside: this resort is almost perfect in every respect.
We stayed in the main hotel building in an ocean view room.
Fantastic views and large modern very well presented room.
Upgrade of the room to maintain a high standard is evident.
Staff at all levels are friendly, helpful and keen to assist.
Food at restaurants and variety of bar areas all of high standard.
Our thanks to Intercontinental and staff.
