“Tranquil and Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

Conrad Koh Samui must be one of the best Hotels in the world if you love views, food and tranquility. We spent lazy days by our pool watching the islands bobbing in the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves. The resort is away from the bright lights and noise of Koh Samui and to us, this is a benefit. We did hire a car, which was easily arranged and delivered to the hotel, to do some sight seeing but quickly realised that we just loved our private balcony more. The restaurants have wonderful dishes but we found room service to be fantastic, the menu extensive and the service quick. In addition, the room was large and beautifully appointed while the speed of the complimentary Internet was extremely high, a nice touch.

Room Tip: We stayed in #211 so central to the main restaurant.

"Best of all..."
When you arrive you would either drop your monocle at the sight of the view or die on the spot. The view... is spectacular. Watch sunset (1) from the convenience of the room on your sunbrella outdoor settee right next to the small private pool or (2) lie on your giant super king size hotel bed complete with egyptian linen and down feather pillows. You can choose either to listen to the waves or stream music through the Apple computer/TV set. (3) sit in a bubble bath in a giant stone bath tub -- big enough to fill three grown men or (4) and the best option, go to the main pool on level one, sip cocktail from the Azure pool side bar white lying on the pool sundeck...

"And the room..."
I have stayed in ample nice hotels alright and this room, or shall I say villa... is...spectacular (Lost for words). The sheer size of it... I stayed in a normal single room and it took at least 30 seconds to stroll from one side of the room to the other end. My villa has an unobstructed view of the ocean which you just can't escape from. Everywhere you look seems to point towards the ocean. I already mentioned the in-villa infinity pool. It is exactly the kind of feature in the room that makes your heart leap to your throat and puts a smile on your face. You'd want to jump in it regardless whether you're wearing clothes! The pool will take you 5 strokes to go from one end to the other, but it's still a 1.2m pool nonetheless! Very high ceiling, 100% 5 star interior decor, modern and comfortable... State of the art light switches and TV and sound system -- better if there are more choices on video on demand and TV channels. But where's the remote control for the curtains? I know there's this cinderella thing with drawing open your curtains to a beautiful day facing the ocean... But come on -- the room is haaaauuuuge and the guest is lazy!
Bathroom... giant bathtub, shower with a rainshower and hand shower set... Acca Kappa toileteries... But where are the shavers?
Walk in wardrobe plus a vent directly above the railings -- will quickly dry all your wet bikinis!
No insects in the room even I opened the windows to my villa and I was out for the whole day... Remarkable considering this is built in the hill...
You don't have to break into the minibar for fresh water as they provide four bottles per day. (PS... Some tropical islands have no fresh water and so water from the tap can taste salty. Not with this hotel as I suspect the filter their tap water... The water from the shower is absolutely fresh and I think you can just drink from it... Of course if you have a troublesome stomach I won't recommend it...) Minibar is well-stocked, I won't use it though as every item is overpriced for what they are, but if you take the hotel's location into account then you have to appreciate the effort for the logistics...

"The location..."
Which takes me to the location... It's built on an exclusive lot on a vast slope of hill... Which also means you need a club car/buggy/golf kart whatever you call it to get absolutely anywhere. The merit is that when you call concierge, a buggy will normally be with you within 1 minute (pretty remarkable). And taking the buggy is an experience in itself. I live in the city so I don't normally get chauffeured everywhere, but having the option to be an absolute lazy bum is a great way to indulge as well. But you'll be sure I won't bring my children here as the steep slopes means if you don't hold on to your kid, you won't be flying them home... The hotel is also 45 minutes away from the airport and you won't be able to walk to the nearest town... So whenever you're in town don't forget to buy snacks, drinks or other amenities... Taking a taxi is a pain as well... A 15 mins drive can set you back a whopping THB750!

"What to do..."
Since the hotel is so secluded, privacy is umpteen so I guess it is best for people who want utter quietness and peace. People who just want to enjoy their anniversaries or for whatever celebrations will find it the perfect location as well. Within the resort there's not much to do apart from going to the gym, doing yoga, going to the spa, walking up and down the hill on concrete, beautifully paved pavements and going to the swimming pool. Of course couples will be loving the giant tub and the king size bed... And even the restaurants are all doubly seated. If you're coming here on your own out of spiteful regret of marrying/getting together with that man or that woman... don't! This is the perfect location for honey mooners or older couple celebrating their anniversaries... Your teenage kids will be cursing you for bringing them here, and your newborn would probably have flown out from the buggy before they even got to the villa... So...

"The service..."
Spot on. Service is impeccable -- every staff is on the balls, efficient, friendly and very willing and helpful. Very discreet. I really appreciate the lightning fast response from staff... considering the resort's vast size...

All in all...
I already said... the perfect location for anybody who wants to be as far away from reality as possible. It's the perfect concoction for a luxury resort. You have all the best of the best mods and cons for your room, both decoration and service wise with the added benefit of the most perfect backdrop -- the ocean. Best for couples as the rooms and the whole hotel is really built for them. If you need entertainment... this is perhaps not the best for you as it is so far away from everything.

Room Tip: Swimming pool on level one, restaurants and bar on level two, spa on level three, exit on the top f...

Had a 6 day break with my husband staying at Conrad. It is superb. I had a 90 min massage upon my arrival to the hotel. Fell asleep after 5 min and came out totally relaxed and ready for my holiday. The villa pool is larger than the one I've tried at Four Seasons in Bali and Banyan Tree in Sanya. We swam everyday in our private infinity pool and enjoy the sunset by the water. The villa has unobstructed view of the sea. I can see the breathtaking sunset everywhere.
Breakfast is delicious with emphasis placed on HEALTH & FRESHNESS. I love the freshly baked croissants , homemade yoghurt, and the hotel's own concoction of freshly squeezed juice ...
Would be lovely if the beach is bigger. The staff are friendly and most helpful. Of course, be prepared to pay for the premium that comes with high quality service and setting.

We stayed at this hotel from 14th to 16th October and spent the weekend in a state of awe and amazement. The hotel is new and fresh. The property is beautiful, well-planned and perfect for those seeking privacy and peace and quiet on a holiday. The location is just unbeatable - the property faces west and so every evening you can witness the most amazing sunset. The hotel is situated on top of a hill and the only way to access it is by car / taxi (versus walking). Once you arrive at the hotel you will then be taken by buggie to your room (the rooms are located up and down the hill) - this all adds to the charm of the location. You feel like you have been whisked away from your usual busy lives to another world.

Each of the villas (the property consists of villas versus bedrooms) faces west / the sea - so everyone gets this view. Each property comes with its own plunge pool - and a very good size plunge pool. The bathroom is huge with excellent facilities (including a proper rain shower and excellent-sized bathtub). The room also has internet - wireless and on the tv using an apple docking system (the only one of its kind).

The service was top notch - the staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the property and the surrounding areas. The restaurant has several restaurants - we only managed to try two - Zest (the all-day dining) and Azure (the pool-side bar) - at the latter we strongly recommend the minty lemonade - a beautiful drink on a hot day. The food at both was very good - fresh and made from good ingredients.

We also got around to trying the spa. The spa is located on the top eastern corner of the property and so in some rooms you have a 270% view of the surrounding ocean / islands / land. Very beautiful. The therapists are attentive during treatments without being intrusive or disruptive of your relaxation. The relaxation room also faces the ocean and has amazing views to enjoy before and after the treatment.

A highly highly recommended resort and spa.

Room Tip: If you are staying at a 1-bedroom villa then see if you can request rooms starting with "1"...

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the brand new Conrad Koh Samui - it exceeded expectation! Our own private villa was beautiful - the finishes and interior design of it was stunning. The apple TV's were brilliant and super cool! The view from our own private pool of the 5 islands was breathtaking! It is not cheap to eat there, but there are some really great local restaurants serving brilliant local food very close.

All in all it was a fantastic experience and extremely spoiling!

We spent three nights at the brand new Conrad Villas in Koh Samui with our two kids and stayed in a two-bedroom ocean view pool villa (actually all the villas have an ocean view). The view is unparalleled and the entire resort is built on a slope so wherever you are, you have the same unobstructed view. The rooms are contemporary and extremely spacious. Each villa comes with a deck and infinity pool. The only drawback is that it is about 40 mins away from the airport so you are not located near the 'action' but the resort is so beautiful that we were quite happy staying put. There is a Turtle Club for the little ones and it has it's own pier so you can hire a boat to take you out to neighbouring islands for snorkelling or a swim and picnic in quiet lagoons.

Just stayed here with my wife. I must say that this is by far the best hotel in Thailand.
Amazing views from every villa. Amazing rooms with all the features. Only hotel in Asia with apple tv with movies on demand etc and also apple computer with wireless keyboard on the flat screen. The pool in the villa is amazing and a very impressive size. Yes it's a bit remote and a it expensive but very much in line with what is being offered. A true five star hotel and one I can safely say is the best hotel I have ever stayed in with the most impressive room I have ever stayed in.. The service is great and the staff are the most polite, friendly people who want to do whatever you want.
Beach is average but the idea is not really to spend all day at the beach.
Best sunsets in all of samui.
Without doubt I will be returning and will highly recommend to anyone.
P.s I think the people whinging about service expect to much. I don,t go to Hotels to expect staff to always address me by my name. It's not the end of the world if they don't .in my opinion the service was amazing and not over the top in your face..
