“Colourful fun getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My partner and I stayed at the Baan Samui for 5 nights in Feb 2014. We had a lot of fun hanging around the pool and beach all day sipping on cocktails.
Fun, bright resort, staff were very friendly and food from restaurants on the beach was great.
Rooms were basic but clean, breakfast also basic but fresh and nice tasting, reasonably cheap resort.. so you get what you pay for! Awesome location on the beach, just a short walk to town. But will definitely be back!

Great location in the centre of Chaweng, is away from the backpacker beach bars which are located further up. You have the outdoor night food markets, supermarket, shopping, various restaurants all a stones throw away. Nice stretch of beach out the front as well.

Staff were friendly & helpful, place was always kept clean & tidy. Breakfast was excellent with a large variety of asian & western fare. The pool was clean (other reviews have said otherwise so I was nervous) & nice atmosphere.

We ate lunch a couple of times in the beach restaurant, food was great & we always made use of the happy hour from 4 to 6 with free nibbles.

Our room was clean & tidy (no foul smells also mentioned by other reviewers), serviced daily with plenty of room for all of us.

We travelled with our 2 year old & 8 month old & I felt safe & they loved the pool area, the gardens & the fish pond/stream. The staff were fantastic with them.

Only negative is the issue with our room. We wanted to have a separate bedroom for us & thought we were getting this with the Junior Suite which the website stated has separate bedroom & on ground floor, we were paying quiet a lot of extra money for this as well. We arrive to find just one very big room with a double, single, cot & daybed. It was a nice room on second floor with good veranda & views however this was not what we thought we were getting. I had done a lot of internet research to get a separate bedroom as we wanted a break from the kiddies & they go to bed early. The hotel staff were great & after about 30 minutes we were told we were upgraded to the Family Suite (not the full suite as only had double room & dayroom, a door was locked off to the rest of the suite - it was the kinda of accommodation we thought we were getting). Great job on the hotel for moving us free of charge & Family Suite was right on the pool so was perfect for us & the kids.

Highly recommend the hotel & would stay there again, but would clarify the room type first & keep the email!

Room Tip: Family Suite was excellent right on the pool.

Once again a special thank you to the management and staff of the Baan Samui for the way we were looked after for our months stay June 2014. We are looking forward to staying again same time 2015. We hope to introduce some family this time. The Baan is very well situated with all it's own restaurants, bars & swimming pool plus a beautiful beach. There is also lots of trading on the beach as well as local food. We prefer to stay in the Superior Deluxe room. Self service store just across the street and taxis out the front. The new Central Centre is about 300 metres up the street with lots of shopping and more restaurants.

Room Tip: Superior Deluxe has walk in shower as well a separate bathroom.

This hotel has it all- great location, lovely rooms, big open pool, and fantastic service. We stayed 8 nights at this resort as a big group. It's right on beautiful chaweng beach, the street out the front has plenty of shopping and restaurants. Might I add, the cheapest shopping on the island. It's very close to soi green mango- you can walk there in under 10 minutes if you want or 5 minutes to the main market area, although this area doesn't have anymore to offer than where baan samui is situated. The resort is small enough that you aren't spending forever and a day to walk to your room, but big enough that you feel secluded from it all!
We never had any problems with dogs or cats as mentioned below- the dogs and cats are all super friendly and happy. Might I add, rabies has been fully eradicated off samui.
It's a beautiful little resort that I can't recommend highly enough.

Wow what an awesome little resort. On the nicest part of the beach with great restaurants and bars at the front. The rooms were always spotless and serviced daily without a problem. Very comfortable beds.Fantastic breakfast with a huge variety to choose from. The pool is fantastic and much bigger than the pictures show, although I would have like some in-pool seating to just relax without being in the kids section. The bar staff played music all day but not too loud and it just added to the holiday atmosphere. Wonderful friendly staff who were always courteous and friendly. Great food in the beach bar and good service for poolside drinks as well. Only resort with foot washing pools for when you come off the beach. Could not recommend this resort highly enough. Wish I was there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor are good as no one is looking in your room as they walk past.

Not the usual accommodation I would choose , but a very pleasant surprise . This hotel is in a wonderful beachfront position , is small and very intimate , easy to make friends and interact with the staff . It is 60`s style accommodation and really captures the ambience of Thailand in bye gone days . Step outside onto the main street and a good variety of shops and stalls , along with very cheap to some magnificent classy eateries await you . I loved this little resort ,such a change from five stars . Don`t expect luxury the rooms are small and very basic , but who wants to spend their time in their room , when there is so much on offer . The staff were most attentive and the included breakfast was extremely good . Hope I am able to return soon .

Stayed here in 2009 and again in early 2013, hotel seemed very dated and worn out on my last stay! In saying that it's in a very good location so it does the job but nothing special, the meals we had also weren't the greatest.
