“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights, we originally intended to extend to a 3rd night but didn't.
Overall we were disappointed as we felt it was a rip-off specially the food and drinks. While we waited for our food, the waiter served us 2 pieces of bread each and a little saucer filled with olive oil. Very pretty but totally insipid. My boyfriend ordered an entree which looked delicious on paper and was really a crepe filled with tin tuna and cheese. I had a salade nicoise which was mainly lettuce. If you think that on the price you also add the 17% tax it really seems you pay just for the name of the place.
In regards to room, we were in the new bungalows. The room in itself is quite dull and boring but of course this is my opinion and might be to others people taste.
The pillows where so thick it was impossible to sleep unless you have a neck of 50cm long.
I was also very disappointed there wasn't a spa or at least a sauna/steam. Of course I should have checked but I thought in a hotel of that category it came with it.
On the good side, the service was very good and the rooms very clean.
The pool and beach area reserved for hotel's guest only nice to chill out.

Great hotel - very clean, spacious an trendy. Great pool (60m long!) with separate kids area. Beach is very nice - maybe one of the best in Koh Samui. Highly recommended, but be warned that it is in quite a remote area, so be prepared to use taxis a lot.

We wanted perfection and luxury and we got it. I was just gutted we only booked it for 3 days so we will most definitely be returning next year. On arrival we were aware there was very little in the surrounding area of the hotel and it was a fair walk to the nearest shop or restraint however once in Niki beach resort there really is no need to leave as you have everything you need right there. We did see a few people on Nikki Beach bikes but we didn’t enquire so maybe you can borrow a peddle bike to travel around which would be ideal. Jacob the manager looked after us superbly from the second we checked in, he gave us a tour of the whole resort which included, private beach, café, restaurant, 2 pols and gym.

The facilities in the room and the décor was perfect I think anyone who faults it are completely picky or deluded. The bed, shower, wardrobe space, mini bar, balcony and air conditioning were all excellent the quality thought and effort in these rooms are first class. It is definitely worth the money. On the Friday evening we had a buffet dinner where the food was some of the best we had throughout our whole trip. The food was fresh, there was a huge variety and although it was a little expensive in comparison to the other places we had stayed in Thailand the food was pretty much faultless and it is easy to get your money’s worth by sitting in the gorgeous restaurant and going up to the buffet as many times as you like. A great personal touch here was the chef walking us round and explaining each of the dishes to each quest personally.

A day round the pool is filled with music from the resident dj and is chilled out and relaxing apart from on a Sunday when the legendary pool party is in full swing. We stayed for the pool party on the Sunday and it was one of our best days on the island. The food was amazing as always and the dj and staff kepy us entertained all day. We drank, dance and parties all day and watched the sunset with over 100 people. The only negative hewre was we were told to reserve sun beds but then had to pay a ‘bottle fee’ for having a bed by the pool which wasn’t too much of a problem for us as we had planned to drink all day anyway however for guests who have already paid for the hotel and facilities I don’t think its ideal they suddenly get charged to have a sun bed on the busier days. Some people did express the costs were high for drinks especially however anyone who has travelled to hotels of this stamdard will understand you will get charged slightly more and in my opinion it was only expensive in comparison to Thailand not when you compare other similar resorts across the world.

Finally the staff were impeccable, nothing was too much trouble and they were on hand with ice buckets just to keep your bottled water cool, full of smiles and always friends and presentable. From the cleaners to the driver of our airport transfer to the management team they really did make our stay one to remember. We will see you again next year!

Room Tip: All rooms are of the highest quality but the new apartments overlooking the 7fm pool are just pure l...

Nikki Beach is a BEAUTIFUL spot in Ko Samui. Don't miss their AMAZING Sunday Brunches. I have been going to the sunday brunch now for 3 years in a row - it is ALWAYS the BEST meal of my ENTIRE YEAR. Everything Gourmet, Everything home-made, everything fresh, everything perfectly though trough. The staff and people are also extremely friendly and accommodating. The music gets you in a happy and relaxed mood. Perfect for a day trip or even better - STAY in their most astonishing bungalows!

The bungalows are JAW DROPPING, with EVERYTHING you need to have a perfect holiday. Again the staff is lovely - and will help you and leave you with small surprises all the time - like a small pack of home made butter biscuits in their very own bakery. Which leads us to their delicious breakfast. You must try their poached eggs. Among other things there are freshly made croissants, baguettes, chocolate croissants, brown bread a long with great coffee, fruit, muesli and authentic thai breakfast options. So tasty. Ambience is perfect. The beach is also wonderful and private - spot on for early morning runs and you can swim in the ocean without worries of any boats or jet skies or rocks ect. The Nikki beach pools are all stunning and again the ambience is just truly mind blowing. At least once in your life treat yourself with this luxury for the mind and senses that Nikki Beach Ko Samui provides.

Second time staying at this Chic Beach resort, this time for a week. Honestly, I don't think I could ever get bored here.

The music, the pool, the service, the rooms, the gourmet menu: all 12/10!

See you again soon!

What a place! The combo of the Nikki experience and Koh Samui is unbeatable. The bungalows are spacious and nice, with a great furnished terrace. The beach... Oh my god! What a gem! The staff bend over backwards in helping you and making sure you have the best stay ever. Great pools and great restaurant. Sundays brunch is a must! Michael and Jon, thanks for making our stay amazing. Looking forward to coming back to you!
