this is the kind of property that one stays in for the whole weekend and doesnt really need to venture out much. the location is one end of Samui island and that's what makes it even more beautiful. this is an excellent property with a rustic, nature heavy charm. the cottages are very well done, most of them are secluded from the road so privacy is assured. they do a fantastic job of keeping the place clean and green. cottages with the private pool are a luxurious experience. the staff is very warm and efficient and almost anything you order is very well put together. you cant leave unsatisfied.

Room Tip: any cottage with a sea view and private pool is good enough- they have many cottages so a good view...

I cannot praise this hotel enough. I was taken slightly unwell the day after arrival and our butler, Patrick, held our hands throughout a stressful experience, overseeing a visit to the local hospital (quick, friendly, efficient) and providing an effective comfort blanket. The hotel itself is lovely. The staff are uber-friendly and the service is cosseted. If I had to choose one word it would be peaceful. Luxurious would be a close second. Wonderful counterpoint to the thrum of local life. If you are thinking of going there, do.

Room Tip: I think the full sea-view will involve a climb up a hill when leaving the villa. But free, frequent...

Six Senses was a great place to spend our honeymoon. It was priviate and beautiful. The food was amazing and the service was very good. The resort is not in the main part of Koh Samui so you have to take a shuttle or a cab to go to dinner outside the resort which is the only minor downfall.

Room Tip: We didn't spend the extra money to get a pool side villa and it was a good decision. The resort...

First time in koh samui for my anniversary. Had many amazing experiences in Koh samui. Thanks mainly to the six senses staff being so helpful and honest. We had our own butler, Patrick, who looked over us through out our stay and made sure we had the best time possible through out our stay in Koh samui. Will definitely be using six senses again in the future and would recommend to all.

I have just spend 3 nights in this awesome resort in the east coast of Koh Samui. I had a large villa Nº 43 with my own private pool facing the sea although they have a fantastic swimming pool. The decoration was very ecofriendly and confortable. There was free and fast wifi all over the place. Breakfast was fabulous a big choose of fruits, pastries, chinese and thai dishes, eggs... You name it. 2 restaurants: one more easy everyday meals and the other one posh and haute cuisine. It's a paradise retreat to forget about the world for a couple of days, or weeks. I sincerely recommend it.

This resort is living on the Six Senses reputation but in reality it is tired - badly needs a refresh and the service if frankly sloppy. My husband and I planned a special getaway - booked a pool villa at $1000 a night and felt cheated after our experience. The pool stank of clorine and the water was green. Our friends who were staying at another villa, had the same experience. We joined our friends for dinner at their premier dining area "on the rocks". Service and food was slow, I had to get up and refill my water glass myself. Staff was friendly but badly trained. We had to phone each day and ask to have our room serviced. The coffee maker in the room was ancient and the coffee poor. The gym facilities were very basic as was the beach. The only bright spot was the excellent spa. If we were paying $200 a night I might not be writing this review but a $3000 plus bill after three nights ....???? We expected more....much more!

Room Tip: My tip - don't go until they renovate, train their staff and get new management.

Dear Janice A,
Thank you for your candid feedback on a recent visit to Six Senses Samui, my team and I are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us, just to clarify a few points to you and our readers, the pool is cleaned with chlorine tablets which are high quality and should and do not give of any smells, also the pool tiles are green, therefore the color of the water is a green shade. Our apologies if the service was not fast enough I have shared these comments with my food and beverage service hosts. Valid point on the coffee machine, these are being replaced by a new modern version. Should you wish to discuss any of these matters further please feel free to reach me at gm-samui@sixsenses.com

Staffs here is nice and attentive, and the room is comfortable and view is nice. The location is far from downtown and is hard to find eif you drive by your own car. Insects disturb inside the room can be improved.
