This resort ticked all the boxes I was looking for. Quiet, away from the bustling centre,small and personal. As i was traveling by myself, this was perfect. Meals were above expectations, but ate all of my evening meals at the bamboo restaurant next door ( thai menu+ budget). Noted that some maintenance is needed on features exposed to the weather...

I would like to review from the very beginning when I made my booking. I emailed them with my groupon voucher, 3 days later, I still didn't hear from them. So I called them. When they replied with the confirmation, the details was not my booking, it's was a booking of another couple's details!! We stayed in a deluxe apartment... More

The place was gorgeous, set in a quieter location away form the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui town. We were met by a young dutch guy and the manager, both of whom showed us to our room after patiently awaiting our arrival. The room was huge, luxurious and the bath tub was phenomenal. We were upgraded the next day... More

We stayed here for our first week in koh samui. When we first arrived the room was beautiful, they needed to move us due to a water issue so upgraded us to a room with our own pool at no extra cost. We were blown away by the staff, they were so helpful and Stephen really tailored our stay to... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We were looking for a relaxing and quiet beachfront hotel and this was perfect! The breakfast included with the room was delicious and very filling. The private beach and use of kayaks was a nice perk too! They have yoga classes in the mornings - we were only able to do... More

When we visited Koh Samui for a couple of days we didn't want to be in the thick of things and preferred a rather quiet place where we could relax and enjoy ourselves without too much party activities. The south of Koh Samui is no party area so it fit our bill nicely. The service of this hotel was incredibly... More

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2016 and I must say we loved it. We booked this place on agoda where all the reviews were excellent. Only after I booked did I see the negative reviews on Tripadvisor and we were slightly worried. But we needn't have been. It was excellent. Elements is a hideaway in every sense, if... More

This hotel is amazing, it really deserves 5 stars. I was here for a whole weekend because my sister got married at the beach to the hotel.

I spent @ Elements one week at the end of the honeymoon trip with my wife: the first impression was very flat, especially in comparison with all those impressive, huge resorts with artistic swimming pools that you may find in more "commercial" areas like Phuket. After one day we had already discovered the incredible advantages of Elements: everything is made... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Elements boutique resort and spa hide-away - our small, secluded, privately owned and run resort where we always put you first. You worked hard for this holiday. Let us help you enjoy it. Visit the real Samui. Elements hide-away is nestled in a lovely, isolated, nature marine reserve in the secluded virgin coast on the south west of the island of Koh Samui. Our low rise resort blends naturally into the native environment. Uninterrupted views of the tidal lagoon melt seamlessly with our infinity pool and beach area. But be warned, if you read our very worst Trip Advisor reviews you will quickly see that we have some faults. Apart from the weather which affects the whole of Asia! There are no huge shopping malls just around the corner, just as there are no loud disco nor karaoke bars. There are no jet skis or speed boats buzzing the beach, just the sound of the birds on the wind. There are no beach vendors selling you unwanted trinkets and beads. Only our staff offering chilled refreshments when you call. A book being dropped onto the sand or the trade winds beating up the coconut fronds may be the loudest thing you hear all day. The health (wellness) is addictive and so is the spa. The location is too romantic and the food is to die for. The staff smile too much and you may be seduced into doing less for longer time periods each day. A pampering experience of body massage and beauty treatments awaits at the spa. Guests may also look forward to enjoying the well-equipped fitness centre, free use of mountain bikes and free use of kayaks.The hotel offers free meditation classes and morning yoga lessons most days of the week. Only the finest ingredients are used to prepare the delicious Thai cuisine served at Bamboo Beach Cafe, while Mediterranean and other Asian favourites as well a wide selection of skilfully prepared cocktails can be enjoyed at Fai Dining. So come and join us and be in your Element. ... more   less
