Just got back from staying at W Retreat, Koh Samui...I will make this review as brief as possible!
The GOOD (5 Stars) ~
*Service was fantastic, seriously! From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the last day drop off, we were greeted with great smiles and service. It could be something we needed in the room, they would deliver with efficiency and courtesy. The staff at "wherever" was always friendly!
*Namu restaurant and breakfast were great! Everything we ordered was delicious. For sure, you won't be disappointed!!!
The MIX ~
*Being an architect, I love the overall layout of the site, the ambience of all interiors, and the style of architecture. All seemed to coincide with the concept of "W" very well. It's hip, young and modern! However, the landscaping was lack luster. It was sparse and lack a level of "resort" or "retreat" feel. I believe if they would design the landscape in Southeast Asia in mind, they would complete the overall ambience of young and modern with absolute resort lifestyle!
The BAD (3 Stars)~
*Thai food was less to be desired. I think they were going for some sorts of fusion; unfortunately, the food was not as good as I had them in local restaurants.
Will I go back again? Or recommend it to friends? YES and YES! For sure, we will try out different villas next time, although we absolutely loved our close to beach Villa #106.
