Beautiful property, probably with the nicest beach on the entire island (clear waters, white sand, no rocks) - great food and facilities, not far from "the outside world", but it is really the people working here that made our stay memorable. Everybody was so genuinely happy, helpful, and very fast. I'm not a student of hospitality, but I know staff is trained to anticipate the needs and requirements of guests, and the staff at Vana Belle must have been trained in mind reading because they were able to do this better than anywhere else! If you're looking for a property with the perfect combination of beauty, privacy, service, and generally a home away from home in Samui, this is your spot. Special thanks to Khun Song for really looking after all of us throughout the trip.

This is my 3rd time vacation in Koh Samui. But, in this the best!! This place at Vana Belle, I fell in love at the first moment I arrived here. The first impression was the very warm welcome by staffs, unique traditional Thai way of welcoming their guest at home. The Lobby was very nice view and good ambiance. My butler, Khun Pum took me to the room and I was Surprised by the details in the room yet, the atmosphere was so amazing. I really enjoy everything in this room and they really have everything you need in this hotel. I had the wonderful time staycation here and this place is highly recommend especially for the couple and family who wanted to have special occasion or vacation in this beautiful island. I guaranteed, VANA BELLE A LUXURY COLLECTION is the best answer for you! Have a wonderful vacation to you all! AISOON ^^

Dear amaritj2020, Thank you very much for taking time and writing this 5Star TripAdvisor review about Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort Koh Samui. The Vana Belle family is delighted to read that you dearly enjoyed your time. Vana Belle, which stands for "beautiful forest" is nestled in the tropical forest of Samui on the hill of Chaweng Noi. The resort has a 180 meter long straight beach that offers pristine white sand and crystal clear water. It is considered to be one of the finest beaches in South East Asia and a perfect place for those who love to swim in the ocean. The resort architecture was inspired by the mythical story of himaphan and our distinguished guests have the opportunity to take a private tour to learn more about it. Personalized service is key and very important to all of us as this creates the atmosphere for our honorable guests to relax, recharge and rejuvenate. You stayed at a Grand Ocean View Pool Suite, a first class category suite that includes butler service. I am happy to read that you enjoyed the incredible service provided. Thank you for staying at Vana Belle, a traditional Thai boutique resort. The Vana Belle family is looking forward welcoming you back for another memorable stay. Yours truly, Dieter Ruckenbauer General Manager Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui.

Having stayed routinely at the best hotels/resorts in the world including most of the Thailand Anantara's, many of the Shangrila's in Asia, Ritz Carlton Millenia Singapore, etc, it takes a unique resort hotel to rank as one of the best and I would have no hesitation in listing the Vana Belle, Koh Samui at the top of the list. To begin, I rarely experience a hotel where the entire hotel staff is so professional, friendly, and courteous. That begins at the top with the GM. I found Dieter Ruckenbauer and his staff to be so attentive to our needs during our entire stay that I struggle to remember any hotel staff this welcoming and attentive to our needs. And of course, there is the nearly flawless grounds of the Van Belle itself which is so breathtakingly beautiful that it’s difficult to express the sheer beauty and emotions in words. The suites themselves are huge and cleverly designed with steps leading to the living room quarters w/ a TV and then a sliding glass door which you open to your private pool. The private beach, pool and grounds are so impressive that I found myself pinching myself the entire time I was here. Finally, I must complement the head chef – Ice for putting up with our continuous dietary requests. He seemed to accept our daily challenges with vigor and enthusiasm and I doubt the word ‘No’ even exists in his vocabulary. Simply put, a stay at the Vana Belle is an experience you won’t soon forget and I encourage everyone reading this to treat yourself and your loved ones at least once in your life to a stay here.

I booked three nights at Vana Belle, and everything was memorable from start to finish. We were greeted by the Director of Rooms, Alex, when we arrived, and our butler for the stay, Lily, was a superstar - super friendly and helpful. We spent more time in our villa than we normally would have at another resort because it was just so comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job at keeping our villa spotless, the water and ice well stocked, with plenty of tea and coffee. A word about the breakfast: we were upgraded to the prosecco breakfast (buffet, a la carte plus free-flow prosecco), which was a lovely surprise. Of course, with breakfast ending at 10:30am, it would have been a waste to get too "loopy" mid-morning, but the glass or two of bubbles to start the day was a bonus. The a la carte options do a take a while, but you have access to the buffet options while you wait, and I think what was most impressive was the care that the staff put into preparing every a la carte plate - each plate was beautifully prepared and plated and looked like a work of art. I recommend the eggs benedict (both the Thai and the regular version), as well as the pork sausage. The crab curry that comes with the omelette is also extremely flavourful. The gym was never very busy - only one other person there whenever I went or I was alone - but well stocked with options for cardio and weights. The beach bar had very skilled bartenders who were very friendly, and we enjoyed some great martinis the first night we were there - kudos to the bartenders on making fantastic dry martinis. Finally, on check out, the staff had carefully already reviewed my bill to ensure I got all the discounts I was entitled to (in one case I had been given a 30% discount when it should have be 50%, and they corrected it before I came to settle the bill, for example). I can't wait to come back again - what a fantastic experience and a break from Bangkok that was some of the best value for money we've found during these odd times. Thank you to all the staff at Vana Belle for their professionalism and friendliness - we really felt at home for the three nights we stayed.
