The rooms are exactly as pictured, and the experience is so much more. The staff makes you feel special (they even designed a mobile app to help with your stay) and the food is amazing! There is even a private beach with beach gear/toys. DEFINITELY recommend.
We spent a week at Silvadee and loved every second of it. The service, food, beach, pools and ocean views were first class. The shuttles were extremely convenient. Staff in particular were extremely helpful and respectful.
My husband and I stayed here for one week for our honeymoon and we will definitely be returning but for longer! We got a partial ocean view suite and couldn't have asked for anything better. The food is amazing, the staff was super friendly and accommodating with anything we needed while there. The resort has an app which makes it super easy to communicate with staff whether it be ordering room service, booking day excursions, and just asking any questions you may have. The resort is very quiet and serene and was the perfect relaxation we needed after a week in Chiang Mai. Would highly recommend this place to anyone!
Great resort. Awesome food. Loved the private beach and the infinity pools. The employees really try to make your vacation special. Every meal was really delicious. The breakfast was incredible. Go if you are looking to hang at the resort or take shuttles to other areas (it’s a little isolated but great for couples)
The most stunning resort and fantastic staff. I have a number of allergies and was worried about travelling to Thailand and the staff were so accommodating, I immediately felt at ease. The food was some of the best we’ve ever had. The resort was peaceful but plenty to keep you busy, we really enjoyed the beach yoga and Thai Boxing. We came away completely refreshed and wouldn’t hesitate to come back! Thank you all
First of all thanx to GM Alex Magaton, chef Mon, restaurant service manager Aon, reception staff and whole crew from Sun, Moon, stars and The Height for their warm hospitality, The pick up from USM airport was prearranged with own hotel shuttle and was a breeze,after 30 min ride we arrived at Silavadee Spa, Pool Resort. Thip checked us in very fast and explained the own Silavadee app to us, what you can use to communicate with hotel, order food, drinks, and whatever you need. Works perfectly. We had a lite dinner what hotel arranged at the Heigjt for us as we artived late at night and want to have a sleep fast. First 2 days we live in Villa 33 scenic ocean view villa, very nice and well maintained, the pitty was from day 3 in villa 9 close to our villa hotel must repair the terrace and must make lot of noise the whole day. We were upgraded in a ocean fron pool villa no.32 what is the most private villa on the property. We really recommend this villa, stunning views and no neighbor to your right and you hear only the birds and the ocean. Thanx a lot for this upgrade. Also the chef Mon is greeting us while we are at breakfast what is one of the best and high recommended choices qe ever had in a hotel.see my pics of the menue. We had a nice talk with chef Mon and he invited us for a special dinner cause one night there are some problems with service and we have to wait a little longer for our dinner. The hotel want their guests be happy and they do everything that you are happy. The sinner was outstanding, Mango salad, very smooth creamy mushroom soup and Kobe beef as main dish. Wow, that no hotel served us before as an excuse for a little more waiting time. Beach facilities are nice but may must be replaced for new SUP‘s cause these ones really old. Both pools nice but we prefer the Beach pool in the morning and after noon we have our private villa with lots of sun and private pool. Gym is a little tiny for me as I used to have the gyms at RCCL cruise ahips what quite big and many people can have the workout at same time. here if 3 people in the gym it is occupied. But this is only a small point of critic and only my personal feeling. Allover the team of Silavadee, the pwner included do a very good job and understand to make guests happy. thanks a lit for these amazing 2 weeks we could enjoy Thai hospitality and food on Michelin star level. We will come back, for sure. Our real special thanx to Aon she was the good soul in the restaurant at breakfast and dinner and alway smiling and like to laugh with us. Thanx again. So we will enjoy now our last days here in paradise before we must fly home.…
Every view of this resort was breathtaking. We loved the turn down service. Silavadee just managed to think of every little thing that made our stay just absolutely perfect. We will definitely be coming back!
Such a beautiful natural scenery. Giving you feedback on improvements in the hope that you will be more developed and perfect. I rested well because of the beautiful natural scenery and the fantastic appearance from the room.
Incredible resort with its own private beach. Close to all the main parts of Koh Samui. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic and is included in your booking. Today I enjoyed lobster roll with truffle eggs and bacon washed down with a few glasses of complimentary champagne. Highly recommended!!!
When you see a hotel has consistent five-star reviews on TripAdvisor you know you’re in for a great stay, but it’s hard to do the Silavadee resort justice - it’s probably the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. On location and views alone, you’ll find it hard to beat - tucked away in a cove on Koh Samui, around 15 minutes from the town of Lamai and half an hour from the airport, Silavadee is quiet and calm and relaxing. The resort is a long, thin complex set on a hill with a formal “hotel” at the top (rooms here have no private pools but a jacuzzi on the balcony instead) and a variety of villas and lodges beneath depending on how much you want to spend. We were on our honeymoon so booked one of the mid-price rooms - a tropical pool villa which came to around £400 a night - and our jaws dropped when we got inside. The villa is absolutely enormous, with the main room dominated by the gigantic four-poster bed and pointed roof with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides overlooking our own private pool. The pool is really quite large for two people, surrounded by trees and greenery with a jacuzzi section you can operate yourself (although the bubbles are pretty aggressive), and an outdoor shower with a door leading to the vast bathroom with separate rainforest shower and bath (a round, granite grey monster that’s begging to be Instagrammed). The dark wood styling throughout is very plush, down to the sliding sign outside you use for the room to be cleaned, and you instantly feel like you’re in proper five-star accommodation. As well as the private pools, there are two communal ones with infinity views across the Gulf of Thailand and a private beach with free watersports such as kayaking and paddleboarding, free equipment including sea shoes and lifejackets and a range of free activities through the day like yoga. The resort has some extremely steep climbs but for those less mobile or who don’t want to walk, golf buggies move between the villas, restaurants and other communal areas and can be called on demand (just watch out when on the paths as they travel at quite a pace and can suddenly appear behind you). There are three main restaurants: Moon, where breakfast is served as well as evening meals; Star directly above it which incorporates a very large open-air bar (sunset drinks here are highly recommended); and The Height which is focused on Thai cuisine. We ate at all three and Moon and Star were definitely the standouts, with some very good dishes at typical hotel prices; breakfast was also outstanding with fantastic and extensive à la carte options as well as a lovely buffet. However the food at The Height wasn’t to our taste, and we ate much better local cuisine more cheaply elsewhere. We really enjoyed the nice touches that came with the honeymoon package we booked, including free private airport transfers, a bottle of fizz on arrival, free cocktails at Star and a three-course dinner at the restaurant of our choice plus a 90-minute massage at the on-site spa. This was great and very relaxing although be aware that pressure tolerance is higher here, so a “medium” intensity massage will be really quite hard. There are also free shuttle buses to two of the main beaches on Koh Samui - at Lamai and Chaweng - although the resorts alongside them aren’t particularly great and you’re better off staying on site. It’s also worth mentioning the “turndown” service after 1800 each night where staff will come and reset the room, usually accompanied with free sweets or cookies. The overall standard of service really is excellent - from arrival to departure - and the staff (most of whom speak very good English) can’t do enough for you. There’s also a resort app they ask you to download when you get to Silavadee which includes a live chat function to reserve dinner tables or request extra items for the rooms - this works quite well although sometimes they prefer you to call the front desk. This truly is a wonderful, world-class resort so the following few points are minor nitpicks: - Food and drink service can be very slow at times; there is a beach bar where you can order meals prepared on the other side of the resort that have to be effectively ferried over; one lunchtime, we waited an hour for some chicken bites and chips, and there were a few other delays - The beach, while serene because of its private nature, doesn’t have enough loungers in the middle of the day for the volume of guests at the resort (bear in mind there are only 80 rooms) so you may find yourself politely asked to come back later - One or two of the lesser-used communal areas could do with sprucing up a little: it appears there used to be a second small beach, but the walkway to it has been boarded up with washed up rubbish from the sea surrounding it - The lighting in our room was quite dark throughout - very atmospheric but my wife struggled to do her makeup and getting up in the night was a bit of an adventure - Considering it’s 2023, there’s also a surprising lack of USB charging points and oddly-placed plug sockets in the rooms, so bring adapters. The TVs aren’t smart and while you can ask reception for a Roku-style box so you can watch Netflix or YouTube in the evenings, the apps were in Mandarin so navigating the menus was quite tricky - One thing that’s not the hotel’s fault: mosquitoes. There are quite a few of them buzzing about and we both got bitten a fair few times. The hotel proactively give you repellent spray and a couple of swatting machines to deter them but be prepared to cover up. As I say, these are extremely minor details in what is a truly stunning place to come and holiday. You will never forget the truly awe-inspiring views at Silavadee, or the hospitality, or the feeling that you’ve stumbled on a secluded paradise - and make no mistake, we will definitely return.…
