Should have been 5 stars, but let down by a few things. Scrubby properties next door, paint coming of and ladders and hoses spred around. The villas are facing north east so no sun on the terrace / pool at Villa Marlee. However, the villa itself was spacious and amazing, and the

Stayed here for three nights in the Camilia room with private pool. This place is fantastic. It is up an extremely steep hill that can only be driven up. Hotel provides a taxi service, free during the day but around 400-500 baht out of hours. Rooms are a little dated (the

Hi. This is Robert. The last answer was pretty correct. We consider this resort 5 stars overall. Other larger resorts have amenities like business centers, kid pools, multiple restaurants, large parking lots, ball rooms, meeting rooms, children play rooms, separate kid pools, and other things... that count towards the star rating. They also might be located more conveniently in the middle of the town, which might be good for walking around, but now this location is quite busy, not always so safe, and more noisy with traffic jams. What they don't have is our 6 star service, that we provide to each and every guest. We really care about you and your family, and you entire Koh Samui experience. Because we are located up on the hillside, where we have the most beautiful views, we are not directly on the beach, and it take a very short drive to get to some places, and some activities, and some restaurants. However, we have excellent transportation services, and at most times of the day, it is a free service. At night, we do charge a reasonable fee (cheaper and safer than the local taxi) to take you where you want to go. We are perfectly located between the towns of Chaweng and Lamai, and right above three beautiful beach areas within 5 minute to the hotel. if you stay in our new pool villas, then your accommodation is first class, and some of the best in all of Koh Samui. Our original villas, are of a more authentic Thai design, and filled with traditional Thai furnishings and original artwork. Hope to see you in April.

Hi Tina From memory the shower is a glass screen. I think there are two showers as the second bedroom has an en-suite. There is also an outdoor shower. The bathrooms are all marble, a bit dated but still very nice. We used the complimentary driver which was no charge. check with Robert the owner if the limits of the complimentary service. They supply you with a phone to call the driver. We only stayed there on our last night just to check the place out. The view is amazing. It is a steep walk in, but we used the complimentary drivers who were fantastic. You are not far from the southern beaches which are gorgeous. Contact Robert, he is very helpful and has trained his staff to provide superior service. if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.
