My fiancé proposed to me at this hotel! Suffice to say it is best for couples, there's only 8 rooms and I think 7 of them just sleep 2. We love Fisherman's Village, it's the only place to be on Koh Samui. We also wanted somewhere to relax and unwind so we chose the hotel based on that and the reviews on trip advisor.
Both the view from the room and the location really delivered. We requested to stay on the ground floor so we could have direct beach access and were so glad we did! The sun lounger chairs on the veranda were soo comfy, it was bliss! As was the pool which was very clean and right next to our room. On more occasions than one we jumped in before even entering the room, it was a perfect way to cool off after a typically steamy Koh Samui evening. As I said location was awesome, 5 minutes away from the centre of Bo Phut/Fishermans Village with dozens of beachside restaurants and market shopping. Be sure to visit on a Friday night, the night market is amazing and set up in both directions on the street right in front of the hotel!
We did have a few small issues: 1. The bed was ok for the first few nights but on our 6th and 7th night we realised it was a bit too hard and our backs became quite sore. 2. The thermostat in the air conditioning froze a few times and it stopped working properly as a result. Koh Samui can be unbearably hot and humid right throughout the night, so unfortunately we had a few uncomfortable sleeps :( 3. The restaurant was pretty average, but this isn't a huge problem as there are plenty of other options right up the road. Try Karma for brekky, we loved it - awesome coffee! Overall we had a really lovely stay and I would consider returning, maybe for 3 or 4 days instead of a full week. The issues we did have were so slight they weren't really worth mentioning to the hotel staff, I just wanted to express them in case they are deal breakers for some. If these things don't bother you though I am sure you will have a magnificent stay!
