Sat at the bar on our final night here and can honestly say that I have never stayed anywhere as friendly, welcoming and beautiful. We (myself, my husband and 2 children) have stayed in a Beachfront suite which is located right next to the main pool and the beach and just down the hill from reception. It was comfortable, beautifully... More

The service here is friendly and exceptional. They have about 3 to 4 people at reception and and another 2 people on the tour desk. From the moment we checked in, we were sat down on a sofa and they brought us cool cinnamon tea and cold towels before we filled out any paper work. We also sat down during... More

The Tongsai Bay was everything we hoped it would be and more. We had booked a beachfront pool villa, and it was breathtaking. The staff are extremely polite and always ready to help. The way they made every effort to leave the surrounding flora untouched is beautiful. The breakfast buffet offers a combination of international and thai food. Their spa... More

Lovely quiet part of Samui. We stayed in 2 Cottage Suites. We found the layout of the rooms very awkward but only as we have a 3 year old. Also, they really need mosquito nets ( I understand some of the room types have them). The main pool isn't particularly inspiring (too much concrete) but the pool service is excellent,... More

I was very impressed by everything related to this hotel: design that perfectly fits the landscape and nature around, attention to details, great service, friendly staff, amazing cosy rooms, excellent food.. I must say there is absolutely nothing I would have any negative comments about and I am a very picky traveller who visits 20+ countries per year and stays... More

This is my second visit to this fabulous hotel and hopefully not my last. I have been fortunate enough to stay in some of the best hotels around the world but this is one of my favourites. In short, the Tonsai Bay resort has all of the opulence that you would expect from a 5 star resort but it retains... More

This hotel is really nicely laid out on a hill overlooking the sea with its own private beach and subtly fits into the surroundings. The beach is very beautiful and there is no one on it apart from people from the hotel...which is lovely for a few days. The water sports are great, as are the massages on the beach.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more   less
