“Nice BUT Could be better with more ergonomics”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We stayed at the Hansar for 5 nights in April at the seaview room.

Pros:
*Nice modern design, nice lighting design all over the hotel at night.
*Professional SPA
*Excellent ingredients in breakfast (although it's not the riches breakfast we encounter in Samui.
*Good Pool with nice in-pool beds.
*Relative professional services.
*Room - Comfort bed, nice shower concept (look at cons), nice design, large closet.
*Clean room and facility is maintained good.

Cons
*The big down - the shower is part of the room with no door or any camouflage ,it's all separated by glass at studio concept room., that mean no privacy at all in this small room!! while sometimes it's nice to share this experience with your partner. we didn't feel comfort to have it for 6 days.
*Same for toilet. just in this case you'll have small sliding door made of Rattan (fabric which isn't 100% solid)
*Breakfast is above average but not in the top 5 of Samui.
*Pick-up and drop-off at check-in & check-out or any transfer is at charge (500b each) at 5 start hotel we used to complimentary for the at least check-in\out.
*Only 1 sink, 2 is standard at most 5 stars hotels.
*All the hotel is design as open spaces, including the reception ,this prevent any air conditioning installation, at 35 C degrees it could be a nightmare.
*The hotel is 3 floor tall with no elevator. and only 3 stairwell so we had to walk about 50 m in the hotel then climb those 3 floors each time.
*No one ask us how was our stay at check-out.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Hansar Samui and it is one of the nicest resorts we have stayed in. Beach outlook is stunning, great views from all rooms, and location near the fishing village is perfect, not too far from nice places to eat or markets on Friday night, but still peaceful away enough from the crowds. Attention to detail at this hotel was excellent - turndown service at night with choccies, complimentary drinking water at pool bar during the day a plus, and the service at the bar and breakfast very good. A fantastic stay!

Got back yesterday from this lovely place where we spent one week. Completely relaxed, we enjoyed our stay very much.
The hotel is nice and clean, not too big (so not too many people) and close to the fisherman's village (walking distance 5') with lots of shops and restaurants (especially once a week with a street market).
You can choose to either stay at the swimming pool or at the beach.
The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, nice.
If you're looking for a place to stay in Koh Samui, don't look any further, this is it.

This was our first trip to Koh Samui and we booked 4 nights at Hansar Samui when our initial accommodation fell through and I am so glad that it did as this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! We arrived on separate flights and didn't need the return airport transfer, so the staff had no problem in picking each of us up separately, instead. The resort is walking distance to the many restaurants and shops in the Fisherman's Village. Our room was lovely, clean, extremely spacious and comfortable and the rain shower was amazing. The infinity pool and beach bar were fabulous--we spent one lazy afternoon and evening relaxing on one of the four-poster day beds going from the pool to the beach to the bar and it really felt like we were in paradise! The breakfasts were fresh and had lots on offer and the view was stunning. But the best thing about Hansar Samui is the service. Everyone was so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. While all of the staff were lovely, I must particularly mention Tiger who assisted me with a drinks function that I organised for a group of 30 people, as we were all in Koh Samui for a wedding. Tiger came to greet me when I checked in and then gave me a tour of the "Chill Lounge" which was exclusively for us to use for the afternoon of the function. No detail was overlooked--including fresh flowers to decorate the lounge for the function, which was an unexpected surprise. I will definitely be returning to the Hansar Samui again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have very little external noise and stunning views!

We've just come back from a week's vacation in Bophut, Koh Samui. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Beautiful beach, short walk to fishing village, excellent weather. Our only one regret was that we did not stay at the Hansar Resort. We visited the Hansar Resort daily for drinks and food as the service and friendliness of staff were impeccable and far outshone our own hotel which was nearby. The food at the Hansar far exceeded our expectations. It was beyond excellent. We would like to thank all the staff at the Hansar for making us feel so welcome. In particular we would like to thank Noi, Dom & Nui for their genuine amiability. We would highly recommend the Harsar Resort and we will definitely stay here in the future. Well done to all the staff

First trip to Samui - what a great hotel. The service was brilliant especially Dom in the Beach Bar, Lee in the restaurant and Yo in reception, but everyone was really good. The other 2 great things about this hotel are the pool ( infinity and enormous with always enough sun beds so my family of 6 could sit together) and the location - 2 or 3 minutes walk along the beach front and you are in Fisherman's Village with restaurants, shops and a great street market on a Friday night. The hotel restaurant also happens to be one of the best on the island!
The only drawback to the hotel is in the room. The room for my wife and I had a bath but it was in the centre of the room on full show. There was a door to the toilet but it adjoined the shower ( which had no door) and from the shower you could see in to the toilet. From the bed you could see in to the shower so not much privacy. Other than that the room was well appointed although the storage space was a bit limited but it had a great balcony. Our 4 boys shared 2 smaller rooms without baths but at least their toilet had no glass walls!
The spa at the hotel is awesome. It is well laid out but the real distinguishing feature is the quality of the massages.
