“Once again we enjoyed it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We spent last week four days at the Hansar in Koh Samui. We were once again pleased with this hotel. Special thanks to Mrs Marketa, Guest Relation Manager, who gave us a lot of information to make our stay even better.

We also thank the reception to give us the opportunity to take a shover in one of the rooms before leaving to the airport late in the aternoon. The hotel was almost fully booked so a late check out was not possible.

Lets all complain on tripadvisor! In all sincerity, we are not a picky couple but the Hansar had some misses (we mostly stay at 3 and 4 star places). As previous people mentioned, the light switches were ridiculous (i thought how could any sane person complain of light switches!), the staff, although friendly and tried to be accommodating, really had no knowledge of the surrounding area. Even when asked of highly rated tripadvisor restaurants right next door they blankly stared at you. Not once did anyone in 5 nights ask how our stay was or how they could improve it. The whole concept seemed like you were on your own. Little details like not hanging up robes during making up the room, seem trivial and petty but take 100 of these little incidents and you start to understand people's gripes. My advice, stay here if the price is right. Bophut is great next to fishermans village but with terrible grainy dry sand. Chaweng was insane and you should only stay there if you're looking to rage (not really in a good way). I wouldve given hansar 5 stars if it was $100 less a night (my bad for overyhyping it in my mind before I went). Nice pool and free breakfast and if you book through them they usually throw in a free airport transfer which was really nice and welcoming.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floor in the middle

Just finished a 12 night stay at the Hansar and can not recommend this hotel highly enough. All the staff are to be commended for their friendliness and helpfulness....from the reception staff who greeted us on arrival and arranged our tours, to the smiling breakfast staff every morning, to the bar staff who loved to talk, to the cleaners who cleaned our room every day and said "Hello" every morning.

The decor of the hotel and rooms were fabulous. The infinity pool is one of the best I have swam in and the view is amazing. I thought the turn down service at night (a red rose left on the bed with 2 Hershey chocolates) is a very lovely touch and shows that the hotel goes above and beyond for that "personal touch".

The breakfast included has plenty to chose from.....fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurt, cakes, thai, pancakes, waffles, and any kind of eggs you would like cooked (boiled, scrambled, poached, eggs benedict, with bacon and sausages if you like). You definitely won't go hungry. People who have posted that the breakfast was average, obviously didn't look to hard!!

The location of the hotel, in my view, is one of the best on the island. Situated at the far end of Fishermans Village in Bophut there are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The night markets every Friday night are one of the best on the island.

Congratulations to all the staff who made my husband's and my stay a very enjoyable and memorable one. We will definitely recommend this hotel to our Aussie mates back home and would definitely return again.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room for good views. All rooms have sea views but the 2nd and 3rd floors have mo...

Returned from a trip to Thailand with great hotels in Bangkok (Peninsula) and Chiang Mai (Chedi). This hotel did not live up to expectations. Furniture was worn and "minimalistic" (bordering on shabby). This was the only 5 star we stayed in all of SE Asia that required us to pick up pool towels at the bar, and "sign out" for them. (The others all brought towels to you, and set up your chaise.) The shower was barely warm enough to allow getting clean. While service and food were OK, the overall feeling was that the hotel (compared to other Thai hotels) was charging more than necessary. For example, the van pickup from the airport charge (10 minute ride/approximately $30) and a short sight seeing excursion (1 hour for $100) were out of scale compared to similar services in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Particularly out of scale was a charge made to us upon checkout for a minor accident (admittedly a careless move) involving breaking a pottery cover for a plastic soap dispenser. The charge was $30 dollars for what appeared to be a $3 piece of mass produced pottery.

A fabulous boutique hotel, architecturally stunning geometric design. Overall feeling was of relaxation, the design of the hotel had a very "Japanese" relaxed style, whilst at the same time being very clean lined, minimalistic, modern, oozed quality without appearing stuffy.
The hotel is located directly on the beach (coral sand, but the plus is that it doesn't stick to everything). Located at the end of the village, the beach is quiet, clean & affords magnificent views of the bay & bobbing boats. The loungers are plentiful & comfortable with thick mattresses.
Bar service when beachside is limited, but the bar is oly a few feet away.
The room (Seaview king) was comfortable, quality furniture, fabulous shower room, the washbasin was a bit more style over function & the lighting was a little dim, but the ambiance was perfect. As previously mentioned, wardrobe space is small, however, how many clothes are really needed on a tropical island? Good sized TV. The balcony, with its daybed & rocking chair, afforded superb views & was a very relaxing place to enjoy an early morning coffee or sundowner.
The H Bistro was a treat to be enjoyed, especially the Chefs Menu. The Hansar Cocktail (vodka, galliano & lime juice) delicious & refreshing & two for 250 Baht during Happy Hours.
Cafe 69, run by Vivian, located on the main road outside the main entrance offers great food in a fun setting.
Dining on the beach at Krua Bophut (500/600 yards from the hotel) was a delight with excellent service & good food.
Breakfast was a delight, we are so used to staying in big 5* hotels, which although excellent, can be so impersonal. Here, the staff were efficient & very professional yet friendly. The food was fresh, with a good selection, constantly replenished. The A la Carte breakfast was beautifully presented & the Eggs Benedict - superb.
I would definately recommend this hotel, especially to couples, of any age group.

Room Tip: Top floor, middle section, so not to be obscured by palm trees.

This hotel is ok but nothing more. Service was ok , actually they were very nice!
There is not a lot of caricatures and really nothing that makes it worthwhile from all other hotels. Breakfast is not that good... Very poor compare to other hotel breakfast.
I don't think I will come back..

The resort's Facilities, pool, rooms, restaurants, staff were all great! Hard to find good service in koh samui, but found it here! Great spot in terms of the location to beach and Bophut markets.
Dined at The resort's "H Bistro" and highly recommend it!
