“A contemporary home-feel seaside getaway”
Reviewed July 27, 2010

we didn't expect much by the time we reached the hotel on the first day. we booked a 2-room apartment on 3/F with a sea facing living room. the interior was just simple, contemporary and cozzy. the three of us were getting excited browsing through the spacious and trendy living room with a jacuzzi good enough for all of us and a balcony where you can enjoy your lunch/ dinner packed back there, and the 2 tidy and cozzy rooms with independent washrooms. we had seriously some really good sleep where we don't find easy at home in Hong Kong.

the breakfast is great and staff service is excellent. the Vara Spa is a bit expensive but it was worth revisiting. if 2 or 3 of you would enjoy spa and massage there, you may buy the promotion pack for b5,000 for b10,000 of service.

we dined out a lot at different local outlets and food stalls and the only bad thing is that the remote location means not a small amount of money go to the cab driver! and you can't walk straight and swim in the beach there.

The Sea Samuiis away from the downtown area, which provide a quiet and relaxing environment. However, if you wish to go to the city centre, the hotel can help to arrange limousine to take you to the places you like. (Though I would recommend to rent a car if you wish you move around frequently)
Further, the staff is friendly and helpful, and they proactively provide recommendation of "what to do in samui"!
For the food, the breakfast is realy nice!! Though limited choices for lunch/dinner, taste is good!
overall experience is nice.

Wonderful and luxury place for lazy chill days on the oriental pool or absolutely empty palm beach. Great design, relaxing ambient, lounge music, not crowdy, excellent food, super service, very friendly staff.
Recommended 100%.

We were driving thus location is not a great problem for us. For those who do not have the convenience of transport, the location might be a problem as there is only a restaurant next to The Sea along the same street. There might be some shops, restaurants and bars further down the road with probably around 15 mins walk.

The room which I have booked is a Sea Facing room, however due to the renovation of the Spa room below the building, The Sea have upgraded us to a garden villa. The room is overall clean, but because the toilet is a open concept with jacuzzi, there are a few ants in the room.

The pool is about 25m by 5m with a dept of abt 1.3m. pretty cool during the pre opening as there weren't many people and we had the pool by ourselves. The beach is clean and quiet, the water is clear. The sand is not as fine as Chaweng Beach, however it's still acceptable to us.

There are a few designs which I do not like in the garden villa. First of all, it's the toilet which is outdoor (of course under shelter) and kind of allow the ants to crawl into the bedroom.

Secondly, I happen to use the microwave as I packed back some food as I have over ordered my dinner and could not finished, thus I decided to pack for next morning breakfast. Guess what my hubby need to do to use the microwave. He need to shift the cupboard out to plug the microwave and the wall socket is too far for the wire plug to reach and he need to move the microwave at an angle in order to use it.

The fitness room is not ready when I was there in Oct but there is free broadband available.

Overall, it's still a great place if the above mentioned can/have been fixed.
