With the exception of 2 minor things, the only flaws with this hotel are beyond the hotel's control. The staff are numerous and helpful, the rooms are comfortable, the happy hour cocktails at the beach bar wonderful, the breakfast good if not grreat and the pool is simply stunning. But I'm afraid we really weren't that excited by Samui itself, or Bophut. I know I've been spoiled, but if your looking for a beach getaway, beaches in Australia and the Greek Islands are much better than Samui. The sand on Bophut and Chaweng was gritty and the incline into the water very steep. I don't mean to be picky, but apart from the beach, Samui really doesn't have anything else to do. Whilst Bophut was thankfully quieter than Chaweng, it was pretty run down and when it rained, the street flooded. The saving grace was the hotel. The only negatives were a toilet door made of wicker (no couple needs to hear those noises) and the tv signal dropped out a few too many times. But the bed was soft and comfy and sitting on the balcony sun bed overlooking the beautifully manicured grounds and that amazing pool was wonderful. Oh, a final note. Despite what the guide books say, the wet season does not end in November - the locals said dry season starts in January. But the rainy afternoons were cured by excellent coffee in the chill out bar overlooking the Gulf of Thailand. If I return to Samui, I'd definitely stay here again.

Ups:

- Room is as expected - great view of the gulf and the monsoon shower is a hit

- Grounds are well maintained

- Restaurant is superb

- Good customer service - attentive and personable

- Not many guests

Downs:

- Beach is naff - but I guess it's stock standard for the gulf - the resort pool makes up for it though

- Immediately behind the resort are a few third-world style paddocks littered with trash (you see these when walking to your room)

- The immediate village (Fisherman's) is trashy - lots of bogans milling around and creating a road hazard by riding mo-peds at walking speed

- The November weather seems erratic...

The Hansar was a fantastic hotel. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, they all knew are names, which made us feel special. Bird, the bar man made fantastic cocktails and entertained us throwing bottles around. The manager, Supit, was always on hand to make sure we were having a great stay. Would definitely stay here again, when we go back to Samui.

This place came recommended from insider knowledge and connects, but nonetheless was an absolute paradise.

Design of the place is modern contemporary with calming SEAsian accents and there is a blissful spa that gives you an awesome prescription for your energy type etc. And the tea they serve in there is amazing! Spa design is something that creatives /designers might nerd out over! Came from Shanghai and went with my older parents along with my best friend (we are from CALI/NYC, in creative industry, 30 y/o) and her baby- so we spanned quite a range of ages but were all extremely pleased (and pampered) with the service, ambiance, environment, amenities. Rooms are modern, spacious, romantic-inclined with a streamlined format that gives a bit of classy peekaboo action. Pool is super inviting-- to the point you barely even want to walk 20m to their beach. On Fridays the Fishermans Market has some sort of food festival, so the small road leading from the hotel is packed with all sort of food vendors hawking a variety of common and unique foods. Plan your stay around this, as its fantastic for people who love Thai food! While the oceanside location and view is great and also quiet/private feeling, the actual stretch of beach there is not great since the sand is a bit chafing and granular, but take this as a motivation to do some exploring to other Samui beaches on a day trip. Highly recommend sandwiching your day trips with morning and afternoon/night sessions maxing out poolside. This place worked out for a short & sweet trip (3days) that was more sedentary and totally relaxing! Breakfast was good, with modest and well-edited selections that were on point in flavor and quality, but this place is more elevated, so don't expect your typical undiscerning overflow of generic continental buffet to gorge on. Had dinner one night in the restaurant as well and had a very solid 1-star gourmet meal (based on NYTimes rating) skewing more European in style. Its good to save 1 night to have a date night there. Bar upstairs is awesome with a cantilevered terrace-- would be great for events or a trendy bar night actually (a la KuDeTa in Bali). Will totally come back here every time, but will rent a scooter to adventure outwards when I come back with peers! Have already highly recommended this to all my fiends and family, and the photos speak for themselves!

This place is great for travelers who appreciate boutique hotel type of experiences, with chic design and amenities and the lovely Thai service!

Having been for the last nine years on holiday to Thailand, Borneo, Brunei and Dubai/Abu Dhabi on the return journey and staying mostly in five star Hotels this year we stayed in Koh Samui. For the first four nights we stayed in the Centara Grand, Chaweng and then on to The Hansar, Bohput for nine nights. The Hansar was top class and we were sorry we didn'y stay there for the full fourteen days of our holiday. Most of our holiday stays have always been in large chain Hotels but with The Hansar it is aprrox a seventy five bed Boutique Hotel and with Supit and his first class team it makes this a big big must stay Hotel. I will not continue to repeat all the previous five star reports on the Hotel and it's staff but you will go far to beat the excellent menues cooked by Stephan and his staff in H Bistro. Visitors to Koh Samui must remember tthat Bophut is not like the large buzzing main resorts in Thailand and Fishermans Village is one small narrow street with restuarants and bars. The best restuarant without question being the Krua Bophut Thai approx 400 meters from the Hotel overlooking the beach. Bophut and The Hansar is a place to sit back, relax and forget about all the hussle and bussle of life. Again I thank Supt and all his staff for helping to make this a memorable holiday and hopefully with the Hotel not being booked out we will be back September 2011. I cannot understand the previous terrible review because one hundred people giving five star reports cannot all be wrong.
