“Prefect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

We have been to Buri Rasa 2 times already and in about 3 weeks we are gonna go for the third time.

Why? Because it's just perfect. Nice, clean rooms. Very beautiful beach, good food. Thong Nai Pan is just a very small village but has a great resort, Buri Rasa to relax with a book, a drink and a prefect view.

Brilliant service from the outset. We were picked up from the airport in Koh Samui and were taken by speedboat to the pier and transferred to the hotel, all the while being given cold towels and water to cool and rehydrate ourselves.
Once we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by smiles and kindness and efficiency, the likes of which we were yet to have experienced in Thailand. The front desk staff are so happy to help you with any inquiry or request.
Our luggage was taken to the room and we were escorted there separately. We were given details of the resort and the beach and were informed of the free use of the kayaks and beach chairs!
The bedroom overlooked the ocean on the first floor (room 18) and was spacious, well stocked and well air conditioned! The bed is super comfy and if you need a spare bed, the spare is also super comfy! A great night's sleep for everyone!
Breakfast is amazing with great variety. Cocktails are well-made and served wherever you would like to enjoy them: pool, beach, room, bar, restaurant...take your pick - it's YOUR holiday!
The restaurant is wonderful and well-priced. The staff in all areas of the resort are friendly and welcoming. I never, once, felt like I was an inconvenience or a nuisance.
Massage parlour is outside, which makes for an extremely relaxing experience. The cooking class is fun and informative!
I came her with a friend and will be returning with my soon-to-be husband. I want him to see my 'home away from home'. The motto of the hotel (as it reads in the foyer) is "our home is your home" and it truly is! I can't wait to come home again, soon!
Thanks go out to John (resort manager) for making sure we were always happy and looked-after during our holiday at Buri Rasa Koh Phangan!

A reasonably priced complex set on a stunning beach. The rooms are kept incredibly clean - bedding and towels changed daily. The restaurant supplies a pleasant breakfast with a good variety. Lunches and evening meals were good too and didn't cost too much more than the local restaurants. All the staff were lovely - it really made the holiday so great. There were quite a lot of young families, which surprised me for such a remote and romantic setting. The pool was tiny and it appeared only to be used by parents and young children. I would definitely return. Top tip - if you get there by speedboat, remember you have to wade through the sea for the last few metres, so only wear shorts!

Well I will start with the title , before we arrived here I was under the impression that we would be in grass huts with fans cooling us and dirt roads around the island , Well I was wrong .
This island and especially the Buri Rasa resort would have to be one of the most memorable places we have been to in Thailand , this is the 8th time in Thailand and the 6th different destination , there is a no rush and defiantly a no hassle attitude on this island the by far makes it so much more pleasurable than other parts of Thailand , the dining options are from the best street food to the more extravagant a la carte dining if you desire , the pool may not be as large as other resorts but with the clear sea water and one of the nicest beaches who really cares , even the dogs and cats are nice , there not motly mongrels like some other areas , wow the beds in this place are incredible with a menu to select the pillow of your choice if you desire ,
I will certainly return here and certainly stay longer next time , up to 3 weeks and I'm sure you could still stay longer , the ambience friendliness and comfort of this place are by far the biggest attractions , oh and don't be scared to grab a beer and sit with the locals any where as they welcome you with open arms .

Room Tip: For us the beach front access rooms were perfect

Buri Rasa is an amazing resort set on an exquisite tropical beach that is in my opinion located in the best part of Koh Phangan.

The resort captures the very rare combination of 5 star luxury with a relaxed ultra friendly atmosphere that I have not experienced anywhere in the World. The manager Boonwit and his team surpassed all of our expectations with the friendliest customer service imaginable. Nothing is too much trouble and service is always offered with a smile - which is very infectious, because all the guests seem to be smiling also! There are a few other luxurious resorts nearby that we visited out of curiosity, but they do not have the unique feel that Buri Rasa has. We 100% made the right choice!

We were met at Samui airport, taken to the nearby private jetty and then invited to board the resort speedboat that took us directly to the resort beach which is a fantastic and exciting way to start your holiday. We were greeted by the friendly staff who took good care of us, we were then introduced to Boonwit who made us feel very welcome, he said, anything we needed, just ask. Very nice touch! When it was time to leave, we were escorted to the speedboat by about 6 staff including Boonwit to wave us off. Amazing personal touch!

We enjoyed incredible daily beach front breakfasts, lazy lunches and fantastic dinner shows, which included fire dancers, singers and specialty acts. There are also a few very nice local restaurants and fun bars in the small town behind the resort.

We stayed in room 15 which was a beautiful beach front room. It was modern, spacious, light and kept spotless by the daily maid service. It doesn't get much better than waking up to the sound of the Sea just steps from your terrace. The beds were incredibly comfortable and they offer a pillow menu which is well worth trying.

I can highly recommend Buri Rasa resort and hope to return next year. Thank you to all the team!

Room Tip: Very intimate resort so nowhere is far from the pool, beach or restaurants. However, we stayed in ro...

This resort was such a lovely piece of paradise. The hinterland behind is still unspoilt. the beach is just beautiful and with just a few resorts on this beach with no skyscrapers, it made it very relaxed. All the staff were just lovely and very accomodating. Our room was fabulous overlooking the beach and was extremely clean. The food was very nice and well presented. We loved our cooking class with Sajjit. There is a little village behind the hotel which is very laid back with no one hassling you at all. The day trip to An Thong Marine Park organized from reception was fabulous and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the beach is well worth it. Fabulous sunrises too.
