Myself and my husband stopped off at Poppies for some lunch whilst walking the length of Chaweng beach. Poppies is in a nice spot, the food was good and the service friendly and attentive. There was also a good choice of drinks.

We ended our 15 day tour around Thailand at Poppies in Samui. It was beautiful! The staff is all very sweet and accommodating. The location on the beach is perfect. The food in the restaurant was delicious -- and we had our whole trip of eating to compare it too! Loved the slightly open air concept of our bathroom, however...

The absolute tropical idyll. Hidden amongst the madness of Chaweng is this perfect slice of tranquility. I can't see why you would want to stay anywhere else. Everything exceeds expectations, from the staff, the room and the food to the beach and the pool. Don't change anything, see you next year. (Morning James, you're still No. 1)

Just back from 11 nights at Poppies, I can't add anything else to what's already been said, the place is superb. If you're looking to go to Chaweng there is nowhere better than Poppies. It's also situated on the best part of Chaweng beach. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and the food and service was excellent....

A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali, Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location. ... more   less
