2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

Poppies is the most amazing boutique exclusive hut-style place, with the most amazing staff. I loved it for the smiling and helpful staff, for the fruit brought in the morning to my apartment, for the little gift left on the bed as a souvenir from Poppies, for the delicious cakes wrapped in banana leaves everyday in the afternoon left for us. I loved the beautiful garden with ponds of koi fish, sounds of the sea, great swimming pool and everything else that is top-knotch in Poppies. It is at the end of Chaweng beach which is both a plus and a minus. Also, the apartments are much much more beautiful than on the pictures with a great bathroom, part of being under the sky. I will come back for sure!!!

Went for a celebratory meal for my friends 60th birthday. Wonderful setting and a very special evening. The food was simply fantastic, each of the many courses were all special. The staff were excellent, with special attention to detail and attentiveness that makes such a difference. The setting and ambience also helps create a special atmosphere. Many thanks and would recommend to everyone to pay a visit.

Together with my husband and a group of friends we spent many happy trips at Poppies after the Hong Kong Rugby 7's. We always had the most marvelous of times. This year I decided to re-visit by myself in memory of my husband and 2 other friends who are no longer with us. I was delighted to be back. The cottages are lovely, wonderfully comfortable bed and such attention to detail. Little treats in the evening and fresh fruit in the morning delivered in baskets to one's room. The cottages are set in tropical gardens with water features and a pond with giant carp. The Poppies staff are incredible, quite a number have been there for years and it was very moving for me that my husband and I were remembered as well as other friends after an absence of a number of years. I was looked after very well indeed. Breakfast is a feast and enjoyed looking out on to the beach or around the swimming pool. My request for an item not on the menu at dinner was prepared happily for me by the chef. Thank you Poppies

Standing in for James here, Sandie - I just wanted to thank you for returning. It would not have been an easy decision to come alone as those annual trips you describe were such carefree, convivial and jolly times. The group would have a few new invitees each year, which would add to the enjoyment of all. Lunches in particular would go on for hours, and several bottles of rose would be consumed. I'm so glad that our staff made you feel so welcome - they are indeed our greatest asset. Thank you for your kind words, and please pass on our gratitude for all those visits to other group members you may encounter.

We booked this hotel knowing that after a 12 hour flight we wanted somewhere relaxing and authentically Thai. We were not disappointed, in fact it exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful place, an oasis, so green and lush with a little stream running down by the path to the beach. Best of all are the staff, they are so welcoming and friendly. The restaurant food is very good, it’s expensive but worth it in my view. There are plenty of other restaurants outside of the hotel if you want. I can not fault this hotel. We stayed for 3 nights but in hindsight I wish we had stayed much longer.

We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Poppies Samui, our first stay last year, and we are already planning another holiday there next year. It is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed anywhere. With just 24 cottages dotted around beautiful gardens, it is so peaceful but with plenty to do in the area. You cannot imagine with so many bars and restaurants outside the hotel that there could be such a magical oasis inside Poppies. The cottages are stunning, all the staff throughout are the most attentive, friendly and amazing people. The restaurant serves a delicious a la carte breakfast with so much choice that it is difficult to choose!! Lek and the team are incredible and cannot do enough for you. We love and miss you all! Also a special mention to But and Pong in the bar who constantly made us laugh and we loved to sit and have drinks and nibbles every evening in a beautiful setting. Also thankyou to Sensi and the beach team for looking after us so well every day. The lovely beachside restaurant has such a wide choice of food and beverages and it was truly a fabulous place to eat. The food is incredible and served up beautifully. Each morning a basket of fruit awaits you on your terrace and every evening at turn down they leave a delicious little cake in your cottage. We spent 9 nights here and wished it was longer. We cannot wait to go back next year. Our thanks to everybody throughout Poppies for making our holiday - and our 1st wedding Anniversary - so magical!
