We were only here for one night but it was great. Both of the owners were very responsive to emails (even to my inane questions about the weather) and made a point to introduce themselves to us while we were there. Very nice people. The room itself was clean, comfy and steps away from a ton of restaurant and bars...

Stayed for 5hrs & used as a day room en-route to the airport from Koh Toa. Dave the host was brilliant, he arranged taxi's too & from the hotel & advised us of all the best spots for our whistle stop visit. Our room was clean & was adequate for a short stay. The hotel is brilliantly situated near the...

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The hotel was great, the room was always clean & tidy. The bed was one of the comfiest we've slept in in Thailand. We were unfortunate that Koh Samui was hit by a big storm while we were there and was flooded, which meant we didn't really get much...

Great staff - cannot fault them! Knew everything and were more than happy to help. Rooms looked lovely online and in theory are. However, ours wasn't clean (bugs everywhere, stained curtains, pillow cases didn't look too clean and there was what I can only describe as looked like dried period blood on the toilet seat!). Bar is also very run...

Great budget guest house! We booked out the whole place for us and friends (11 people). We had just spent the last few days in a more secluded villa so it was nice to be walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops, massage, markets, and a lovely walk along the beach. The rooms were clean, included air conditioning, hot shower, and...

Perfectly situated for access to the "Village" and on the landwards side of the main drag. Beach is a short walk. Friday nights are not quiet with Bob Marley tribute band doing their bestest until well into the early hours. The website paints a picture- really is a tad different but by European standards is cheap - Cocooning is certainly...

I stayed in Cocooning Hotel based on a recommendation from our dive instructor on Koh Tao. Her advice was spot on. The customer service was up to par from the moment we arrived until far after we left. I had left a sentimental item in the room on accident and didn't remember until after boarding our plane leaving the island....

Situated in a great spot at the fisherman's village. Great lively buzz just down the street full of stalls and bargains. The hotel itself is had everything you need TV, aircon, safe.

The two points of difference for which we chose Cocooning were the previously mentioned owners and also the swimming pool. Much to our disappointment in spite of staying for 4 nights we did not meet the owners once. We would have liked to use their local knowledge; the staff who we did ask questions to were friendly but not helpful....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just minutes walk from the beach and perfectly located at the quiet end of the villages many shops and restaurants, Cocooning is a tranquil paradise and a great place to enjoy Samui from. Great value for money, the hotel is very competitively priced for the area and perfect for couples, families and singles of all ages. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome from Dave and Therese, the hotel's owners, who are by far the hotel's biggest asset. The dynamic duo from England and Sweden have lived in Thailand for over 10 years, offering a wealth of experience and local knowledge. They started their journey on Koh Tao where they met and worked in the diving industry, until they set up their first business together running a very successful beachside bar and restaurant. They were later married and looking for a new adventure with the imminent arrival of their first child, set their sights on Cocooning in 2012. They instantly added something special to the hotel and their little personal touches can be seen throughout. Service is most definitely with a smile and guests are made to feel instantly at home. ... more   less
