5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Novotel Koh Samui for two weeks recently. We were on the hillside of the resort and the accommodation was great, large rooms, comfy bed. The staff were incredible, many fond memories of Ton, Ice, X, Oscar, Bet and many more who did absolutely everything to make our stay fantastic. Hillside was a bit of a walk... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a friend's anniversary. We took 4 rooms on the hillside which is across the road from the reception. They have security to stop traffic for you to cross but the road is generally quiet anyway. Rooms were large over 45 sq m and bathrooms were huge, about 20 sq m at least. Swimming pools... More

The hotel is massive and beautiful, very tasty food at the restaurant though the service is unbelievably slow (maybe the slowest in Koh Samui), big pool (maybe the best hotel for the families with small kids though couples with no kids might lack some privacy and quietness of their stay). Please hire more staff and replace those cheap and plastic... More

We were a group of 7 people. We arrived early and the room wasn't ready so we went to have lunch in the restaurant first. There was only 3 or 4 tables at the time and we told the waitress we were 7 people. She sneered at us before giving us a table. Service for the rest of the meal... More

Excellent location and very easy to get to the main shops in Chaweng. 15 minute walk along the beach. Hotel lies right on the beach excellent service from the front desk, very warm and welcoming. The downside I did have was the room. I thought that the beach side room was looking out to the beach. There are only two... More

I have just returned from a 17 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is around a 10minute journey from the airport as well as the Pier. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds well maintained.

Be careful by booking this hotel. There are only 2 rooms with sea view (honeymoon rooms). The beach side doesn't mean that the room is with the view to the beach. The hotel needs seriously renovations.

Fabulous rooms, great service by dedicated staff, tremendous pools and beach access, excellent standards of cleanliness and helpful staff. Unfortunately this hotel lets itself down by being greedy. e.g. a small bottle of Chang will set you back 120B (about £2.50) unless it's happy hour between 12 and 1 or 4 and 5 when you'll get two for that price,...
