Stayed 5D4N at the X2 Samui with my spouse in early July'13. Reservation was easy and we were told someone will be waiting for us at the airport arrival area. When we arrived at the airport arrival hall, the hotel staff was holding a placard with my name on it and greeted us courteously. He helped to load our luggage to the back of the van (we were the only couple there to pick up) and off we went for the 40 mins journey to the resort which was located in the Hua Thanon district. Before we start the journey, the hotel staff gave each of us a bottle of cold mineral water which was refreshing. The hotel staff drove in a careful and moderate pace to the hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel lobby, we were greeted by the Receptionist and Concierge “Sawadeeka” and welcomed us to the resort. While I was filling up the registration form, they bought along cold towels with a strong smell of herbal Spa and served us lime juice as the welcome drink. Once all the registration was completed, we were told to wait for a few minutes while the hotel staff went to make one final check at the villa to make sure everything was in order before escorting us in to the villa. We stayed at a single bedroom villa. The villa is very spacious and has a private pool with water fall.
On one side of the pool, there are some green Japanese bamboo tree planted along one of the wall. However, this was not an idle tree to be planted next to a swimming pool is Japanese bamboo tend to shed a lot of leaves. As a result of this, the pool was littered with bamboo leaves the next morning and we had to call the concierge to send someone over to clean the pool. Besides leaves, there was also small beetles in the pool.
Room condition was nice but a bit run down. The villa was surrounded by a 8ft high wall segregating from the next door villa offering ample privacy. In the villa exterior, there are 2 beach beds, a coffee table with 2 chairs at the porch. Unfortunately there are stains on one of the beach bed. Upon entering the villa interior building, a queen size bed is in the middle of the room. The bed is soft and comfortable. It has an open door shower concept and a deep stone-made bath tub. The vanity top comes with a rectangular basin and toiletries that you can normally find in a 5-star hotel. The villa also has 2 big cabinets with a small digital safe.
The villa air condition is rather noisy and needs servicing. Apart from that, most of the hotel staffs are very polite and courteous, greeting us “Sawadeekap” whenever we bump into them. The 4K restaurant has a nice ambient setting with comfortable sofas setup on an elevated stage. A few of the sofas are front sea facing giving a very romantic setting for couple to spend their time together during their meal. The restaurant served a mix of contemporary western cuisine with some local thai flavor. We had our dinner on the 1st night at the restaurant and the food was really good and presentable. Most of the food come served in the fine dining plate which is big and heavy.
The resort is surrounded by a lot of tall coconut trees and is very cooling.The atmosphere is quiet which is excellent if you're looking for a place to relax.
