“Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We had a great time at Buri Rasa Village in Samui. It is not a big hotel - 32 rooms, which we prefer. The location on Chaweng beach is great. The service was excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel also has a very good restaurant. Some nice extra touches - tea and eats in the afternoon, and a different taste snack around the pool/beach at lunch.
We will definitely return.

i had expected more from my visit in Buri Rasa
positive : are the breakfast, the little attentions all along the day from the staff in your room, cleaness of the room
choice of different pillows
negative : impossible to escape on the mosquitos in the room & everywhere in the hotel
pool is very small and u cannot swim if 2 other persons join u in the pool; the pool is also black color !!! even u open your eyes u don't see anything & the sides of the pool look like sand paper & u are easily hurter when u touch the walls
many , many noise from the hotels from both sides of the hotel; the one is a discotheque hotel who give hard music since the morning & the other notes is under construction

Room Tip: beds are only queen size, so sad

We are on our last night at Buri Rasi. We have had a fabulous week here, the staff are so friendly and always give you a warm welcome. The hotel room was perfect just want we wanted. A few reviews mention the noise from next door. The music is a little loud from next door in the day but it did not affect us, you just blank it out after a while, you shouldn't let it stop you visiting. I'd would recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks Buri Rasa for a fab week.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 14 we had a spa pool only used a couple of times but it was nice to have it.

I stayed here recently with a group of friends and we all enjoyed our stay. All of the employees were extremely gracious during our stay and we couldn't have asked for more. They all knew who we were and always made sure we were happy. I will be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the rooms on the right side if you're looking at the beach. There is construction...

Stayed there with my partner for 4 nights. Service was excellent. Staff always ensure that you get picked up on time, help you make calls, arrange for transport and active in informing us of our check out time/time to travel to airport. They also speak decent English so communication is good.

Rooms were clean and well equipped. I love the pleasant pillow spray! The staff also made efforts to prevent guests from being bitten by mosquitoes, which was really very thoughtful of them. The hotel is situated on a busy street with lots of food and shopping, so walking around is easy.

Breakfast is provided. They provide a decent variety of food and the cooked section is different every day, which is really good. They also have a menu to order mains, which will then be prepared by the chef. Overall, food was good. However, the standards may be inconsistent as the banana pancake tasted different during the 2 times I ordered. The fruits and danish pastry is also not well covered so insects could be seen inside, given the rustic nature of the place. The staff also got our orders wrong on 3 out of the 4 mornings, or place them in the wrong plates (my order in my partner's plate). We didn't sound it out as we were flexible about it, as long as it is not too wrong.

It has its own access to the beach at the back. Deck chairs are all very well maintained and the whole area is very clean. It makes you feel very comfortable lying there in the sun. We spent some time at the deck and towels were quickly brought to us.

Overall, the experience was a pleasant one and I have to give credit to the whole team of staff, and the manager who trains them so well.

My wife and I spent two nights here in the last week of November. WOW is all i can say. I have stayed in a lot of resorts around the world. But the quality of service at the Buri Rasa has just blown me away. From the check in to the little personal notes from house keeping to the personalised service on the beach .... It was perfect. A big thank you to Toto and Yui (i hope I got their names right) at the reception for having an answer to all my questions and I had many.
We stayed in the Room with the dip pool , the room was clean and the bathrooms also. the only thing I can add is that they could add a few channels to the satellite TV.
The food was good specially the breakfast. I really enjoyed the afternoon coffee and sandwiches.
I plan to come to Koh Samui again next year and there is no other hotel I am staying in.

A friend and I stayed in the private villa with our own pool - awesome!! The staff were always friendly and sweet. They brought us little presents each night such as sweets or hand made flowers. The food is incredible!! Breakfast was delicious - get the mango smoothie! I would come here and stay forever if I could.
