We have just returned from 8 nights at the Bo Phut Resort & Spa and can only give it an excellent review.
On arrival we were upgrade to a junior suite with ocean view and made very welcome by the staff.
The hotel is a nice size and was about half full during our stay, which ment we had the pick of the sun beds and lots of staff at hand when required.
The hotels restaurants were pleasant with good food and very reasonable prices. At around 400 baht the breakfast buffet was excellent value.
We did eat in our room on a number of occassion, from the room service menu, which again was excellent value and good food.
The hotel is well placed on Bo Phut beach, in the middle, which ment you could walk to the local bars and restaurants in fishermans village within five minutes.
I have read other reviews before going and was a little worried about the sand on the beach being too course, however, I don't this is worth mentioning, I thought the sand was okay.
We did explore most other beaches and hotels on Koh Samui and thought Bo Phut beach had everything without being overcrowded.
We did plan to stop at Poppies on Chaweng Beach and looked at the Sala Samui hotel but can only say that we made the right choice with Bo Phut.
Chaweng beach was very busy and mainly catered for the male clientelle and back-packers. Okay for a bunch of lads looking for a good time. (Nice to visit but not to stay).
I think the others reviews covered most things about this resort and can only concur with all the good things said.
The only downside to Koh Samui, which I suspect can be said with all the resorts in Thailand, there is a lot of poverty outside the hotels and the facilities / infrastructure is no where near western standards.
There are a lot of stray dogs and cats roaming the streets and although they didn't cause harm it was a little upsetting to see.
