We visited the hotel as a family of 4. It was everything it promised to be. We loved the fact that it had it's own beach without vendors hanging around. The food was very good and everyone was friendly and efficient.

The Tongsai Bay was the dream of its creator, a visionary who sadly passed away some years ago. He found the location, built and developed the early properties and lived that dream, often sleeping on a bed on the beach by all accounts. And so it is encouraging to see that today the current owners (family members) and the very... More

10 years ago we first saw this beautiful hotel. This year 26 of us travelled for our daughters wedding ceremony after she recalled the visit and the hotel location. There were 11 of us staying here. We stayed in the Beachfront suite which was fantastic, great location overlooking the pool nearest the sea. It had a large lounge area with... More

Wow, we found the Tongsai bay gave more than any other resort we have stayed in. Firstly the accomodation was fantastic, the large verandah which contained a spa bath, table and chairs, sun beds, 4 poster bed plus fridge, sink etc etc. An unlimited supply of water and milk, plus biscuits, fruit basket and nibbles each day, made staying in...

Having travelled extensively in Thailand this hotel is first class. Mark (the manager) and his team provide an excellent all round package for a relaxing break in Koh Samui. The staff are very special here and go the extra mile to make your stay as perfect as possible. I see this often with family owned properties, they are unique and... More

Tongsai Bay was such a lovely resort experience. Let's start with positives. The staff are very sweet and kind. The resort itself is on a secluded hill overlooking Tongsai Bay and its own private beach. There is a LOT of climbing, so be prepared for that. They offer to shuttle you, but even from the road, there are lots of... More

In my opinion I thought that the people at the hotel were very very nice and we had one of the greatest times. Thanks to all the staff that made our trip so special. The people at the bar as well as the restaurant were very special and the service may I say was on another level. Another reason why... More

We have had a lovely short stay here and enjoyed it very much. Staff were great but as the title says, we were less than impressed with the food. There was a good breakfast included. We found that travelling 5 mins by car for lunch and dinner we were able to eat in the local beachside town and have great... 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
