“Don't let this one get away ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

We stayed here this week, and I words cannot express how we feel about this resort. From check in to check out the experience is amazing.
We were upgraded due to our anniversary and had a premier one bedroom villa.
The views are just jaw dropping, the service the same, and the layout and care in the resort is beyond anything we have stayed at before, and we have stayed at some lovely resorts.
Brent (the GM) personally welcomed us and the Resort Manager farewelled us. And all the experiences in between from the Thai Massage Lesson to the Thai Cooking Lessons (all complimentary) were fantastic. The villas are exquisite and the plunge pools are magnificent. We were even welcomed in our room with a cake and canapes.
Do not let this resort slip past you, we also stayed later at the Napasai, and there is absolutely no comparison (I realise it is half the price) but it is worth the extra $$$. I almost forgot - the beds, you do not want to leave....

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the Premium One Bedroom Villas - 504 it was very secluded and private, and jaw d...

This hotel will suit you if you plan to hang out at the beach, and value privacy and seclusion. The views were exceptional, the service fantastic. We had a room in the 900s which was close enough to the beach so that we did not need a buggy ride (The hotel is built on a steep incline affording wonderful views, but also requiring steep walks). Initially I thought I would be ambitious and work out, but the steep incline to get to the gym along with the heat was a deterrant. I could have taken a buggy, but that somehow felt odd.

The food at all restaurants was very good, we also had a private dinner on the beach which was a really romantic experience. The spa treatments were phenomenal..go for the combo Thai/Pressure Point massage.

Only drawback was the water pressure for the shower.

Room Tip: close to the beach...choose in the 900s

Dear LVGlobalNomad:

As you mentioned, our Resort is a great place to escape the hectic world and relax on the beach or in the privacy of your villa. The combination of the great food and spa treatments was like “paradise” for you.

I am discussing your concerns about the water pressure in your villa with my engineering team to see if we can balance the preference for a stronger shower with the conservation of our limited water supplies on the island.

Thank you for your feedback.

Warmest regards,

I wanted to share with you all my experience at the Four Seasons!
Stunning! Stunning! Stunning!
The views from all vantage spots are truely amazing!
The beach is fabulous, as is the food!
But best of all the staff are truely fantastic, just a credit to all involved!
We had a wonderful Beach Villa over the Easter period and loved it!
Best of all the Easter Bunny went to a lot of trouble to find us, he arrived in on a dingy after a very long trip! He made our holiday!
Whatever you do, dont miss out on the beach barbeque!

Room Tip: all rooms are great!

Had a great time at this gem of a hotel. Truly Four Seasons luxury. We had a lovely villa with a private plunge pool, a short walk down the giant hill to the beach. I actually appreciated the walk to the beach because the food is so delicious, I needed to walk off a few pounds. The only downfall i found with this hotel was its location. It was a pretty far ride ( and expensive taxi compared to thai taxis in other locations) to anywhere else on the island. Scuba diving on this island was terrific. My 15 year old daughter got her dive certification on this island and loved every minute of the experience. Service is wonderful as was the amenities. Breakfast buffet had many choices but was not inclusive to the room charge as we had in all other Thai hotels. Try the coconut french toast! We also enjoyed the thai dinner buffet. A great hotel for families!

Room Tip: Can be a very far walk or buggy ride to the beach. Higher numbered rooms are closer to the beach but...

Dear malibumomof7:

It was a great pleasure to receive your comments about the Resort and our food quality including Pla Pla Restaurant at the Beach, the delicious coconut French toast at breakfast and our Taste of Thailand evening.

Although Chaweng Beach is nearly 30 minutes from the Resort, many guests do take advantage of the other closer attractions including Fisherman’s Village (20 minutes) and Nathon Town (10 minutes). I apologize for the prices that are set by the local taxis for trips of any duration on the island.

I hope you will have another opportunity to bring your daughter to enjoy all of the great diving spots around Koh Samui.

Brent Martin

To the many memorable staff that continously delivered such quality service with a personal greeting, smile and respect all day and every day. Thankyou.
To the GM Brent, your loyalty and dedication to ensuring guests experience the ultimate in service and luxury is paramount to the success of the Four Seasons Koh Samui. Thankyou once again, for truly giving us such a wonderful Anniversary celebration.
Four Seasons KS is stunning. Every view point from reception down to the private beach is exquisite. The Villa's are first class and luxurious. The effort by staff to create an intimate and stunning in-house BBQ with private chef and all the trimmings- our best moment..
Truly a destination that is beyond words.

Starting from the moment we arrived, this was one of the most amazing places we have ever visited! We were here for just a couple of days on our honeymoon, and no words or pictures can do this property justice. It is a must see! Put it on your "bucket list" and you won't be disappointed.

The villas are breathtaking, each with its own infinity pool, and completely private. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

The resort beach was awesome, along with the resort "public" pool. Lots of activities, even for adults, and of course the amazing service that only Four Seasons can offer.

The resort is a good ways out of town, so if exploring Samui is high on your priority list, that may be a bit challenging, and you may want to rent a car. But if you are interested in relaxing, this is the perfect place, and I can't see why you would ever want to leave this slice of paradise.

Room Tip: We got the standard Villa, and our room was amazing!
