“Good for families, less for couples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great resort, although I thought that there were too many kids around in the main wing of the resort. We stayed in the south wing so it was quieter. It also had its own pool, but it doesn't overlook the beach like rooms in the main wing do.

A very good and well maintained property. Loved the location of the resort. Right at chaweng beach.
Its walking distance from the hustle-bustle of the town yet its peaceful and serene.

Loved staying here. The rooms are spacious but will suggest you take the pool overlooking rooms. The rooms at the back are a bit off mark on location and some work was going on when i visited. Though my friends had a pool facing room and it was amazingly nice!

One suggestion is that the reception staff should be more conversant with english considering its a 4 star and above rated property.

Very nice property overall and a satisfying experience! Will surely stay again! Kudos to the team.

We stayed at Amari from 23.12.13 to 02.01.2014
Outstanding sevice by all staff, very helpfull wit any problems.
stayed on beach side, amazing view, cleaned and beds made twice a day. very clean rooms with all amenties.
Breakfast was very good, large variety for all.
Location was brilliant, walking distance to shops bars and resturants.
Entertainment for xmas and new years was fab, everything for everyone.
Pool was amazing, apparently one of the best hotels with large pools on the island. towels provided daily at pool side.

In house restaurants was lovely including the italian across the road Pregos. Best italian on the island as mentions with magazines. Lovely people.

Family friendly.

Room Tip: Book a room on beach side, so you dont need to keep walking across the road. But the crossing is man...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three days from January 10th to January 13th. Our visit was to celebrate our upcoming first wedding anniversary. The hotel staff graciously provided freebies such as flower decoration, cake and fruit baskets in our room on our arrival.

The hotel is beautiful. The complimentary breakfast has a lot of variety. The location of the hotel is amazing. It is right next to the Chaweng market so there's plenty of things to do even in the night (the market is open till 1AM). The private beach is also beautiful.

The hotel is actually divided into two parts with a main road dividing the two parts. We were assigned a room across the road (away from the beach) but no worries for it has its own private pool and it is a 1 minute walk to the breakfast and beach areas. You do need to cross the road but there are security guards who will make sure that you cross safely.

We booked a day tour to Angthorn Marine Park from the hotel which was amazing and full value for money. We also booked a scooter and a car on different days to go around Koh Samui.

All in all, I'd love to stay at this hotel again. It is a beautiful property, at a great location and the staff is very helpful.

We stayed from 17-20 January 2014 in the garden view room.
Arriving early we were treated like royalty and usherd to a lounge where cool towels and sweet tea was served. Then we were shown to the bar lounge overlooking the pool and ocean ( amazing views from every part of the resort) while we waited for our room to be ready and it felt like no time at all before we were shown to our room ( we came 3 hours before check in) in the garden area. People say that this is too secluded and away from everything, but it certainly is not! It's a 2 minute walk across to the main pool and there was a garden pool that was more secluded just 30 seconds away! It was so beautiful and I would stay in this room again (room no. 5129). The room was great, it was the perfect size with a private balcony looking into a Palm and frangipani filled garden. The bed was set up as King and we wanted two singles, in the blink of an eye while we were sitting on our balcony the two beds were there.
THE SERVICE HERE IS AMAZING.
I am here now using the wifi which is great also!
Ask me questions if you have any! But I'm sure the answer will be: ' it was great' because everything was so amazing!

Quick notes:
Amazing service
The air con works so well! Freezer in our room sometimes
Shower pressure best in world
Breakfast was so so so good and big
Location was the best in chaweng. Anything you want is there!

Great room across the road (not beachside) near a beautiful swimming pool. Great setting, super breakfasts and warm friendly staff....absolutely perfect setting for a KOH SAMUI vacation.
The airconditioning worked really well, the room had all amenities and the Italian restaurant Prego on the premises was superb...our vacation was enhanced greatly by our hotel. Need I write more!

Definitely the best resort in Koh Samui. Excellent service and hospitable staff. It has it's own private beach. The breakfast spread was huge and sumptuous. The restaurants had vast variety of sea food on offer.

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful.
