“Lovely ambience and Great value”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

I stayed at the Samui Pier Resort with a large group of friends recently and we all enjoyed the experience. We were tossing up on this or a larger more western style resort but were glad that we chose this as it felt warm, friendly and spirited, unlike the sterility of some of the bigger places we had stayed at before.
overall
Positive- excellent location on the Bophut Beach, peaceful but only a short trip to Chaweng and Fisherman's village, avoids the noise and fast pace of the more tourist driven Chaweng, owner, (Yun) is eager to please arranged mopeds and travel around the island for us, all staff helpful and friendly, lovely ambience with huts on the beach, more authentic than the big resorts. Food, especially Thai food, is excellent.
Negative- bathrooms could be better.

Room Tip: the beach front ones are worth the extra money, we stayed on the bottom floor but our friends stayed...

We stayed at the Samui Pier resort for just over a week and it was amazing. We had a speedy pick up from the airport and were settled into our rooms immediately. The rooms were spacious, clean and beautiful, completely in keeping with the rest of the hotel. The restaurant offers all types of food, ranging from a gorgeous green curry to a wonderful homemade pizza! The staff were accommodating friendly and they went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The beach, pool and grounds are cleaned daily, and throughout the day if needed, meaning that staying around the hotel all day has no down sides. We went on a day trip to ride on elephant (a must if you're in Koh Samui) and the whole trip was organised from start to finish without so much as a hiccup. Everything from the pool side service of drinks, to the friendly and informative staff, made this trip the definition of a holiday.

we stayed in this resort for 14 days,june 2013,this resort is so good that we wanted to stay for a few months.
we had a standard bungalow seavieuw nr 26 with big terasse ,the vieuw from the room ,even from our bed was so nice and relaxing,i never took so much pictures from a view as this vacation.
the resort is well kept,there is a beautifull garden.the staff is very friendly and helpfull.
you can eat very good in the restaurant,the prices are without tax so don't forget to ad 3%(that is not much,but..)the swimingpool is very small, big enoff for a refrehment.
the resort is situated between two piers but you are not baderd by them.(no extra noise)

Room Tip: take a room with a vieuw were you see the old pier,is very nice

Yaniv the owner is such a wonderful & helpful person plus all his staff. We stayed there in March 2013 when hubby had a heart-attack & staff couldn't have been more helpful. So decided to go back in June & yes excellent service & food plus wonderful staff. Can't wait to go back again. Feels like our family. Our room was right on the beach. All the staff know what they have to do & everything is so clean & organised. Such a relaxing 9 nights holiday. Yaniv organised car-hire which was very cheap but decent car.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 39 which has morning sun but shaded in the afternoon with no noise from the road...

We stayed here for 2 nights only (wish it was more) as a base to go to the full moon party. It's perfect for this as a boat picks you up right outside or a speed boat is less than a 5 minute walk away.

The hotels location is fantastic. It has little bamboo huts for sunbathing and is right on the beach. The staff made the stay! The hotel boss has a keen eye for perfection and you will not see anything out of place. He is also very friendly, as are all the staff. Unfortunately I cut my foot badly on a rock out at sea but try cleaned it for me and asked each day how it was.

The hotel is very clean, we stayed in the cheapest room which is small but fine for what we wanted. If I were to go bak to Samui I would like to stay here longer and would recommend it to anyone. Although I travelled here with a friend it would be great for couples too.

You must have a coconut from here - nicest I had throughout my trip.

Bo phut - as an area is very quiet and there isn't much to do. It's worth a walk (20mins from Hotel) to big bhudda. If you are staying here more than a few days you would need to get taxis to elsewhere on the island.

My partner and I recently spent 4 nights at Samui Pier in a beach front room and the place definitely grew on us. We were not sure we made the right choice when we pulled up to the hotel facing the busy street, but once you are past the office the view of the ocean and distant islands is beautiful. The room is very simple and clean. The king size bed was very comfortable. We never figured out how to get hot water in the shower, but we got used to the Luke warm shower. I suggest you bring a scented candle for the room because the smell of the water from the bathroom is not the best. The absolute bonus is that the room is literally 10 steps from the sand and ocean. Keep your door cracked to get some sea air and sleep to the wonderful sounds of the waves. The staff is another great bonus of this hotel. They were very pleasant and accommodating during our stay. We enjoyed the delicious meals at the restaurant and thought that it was well worth the price. We also enjoyed the happy hour from 4-7pm each day. The grounds have a pool, cabanas, swings and hammocks to relax and sip while watching the beautiful sunset. We also enjoyed a 1 hour stand up paddle boat lesson from Melinda, who was a wonderful instructor. very patient and great yoga stretching before and after our lesson. Bottom line is this place is a gem for the low price. We would go back for sure!

Room Tip: Beach Front Room facing the sun set. Room #19
