A beautiful boutique resort that does the simple things well. Totally relaxing atmosphere is what we needed. Lovely people and Gary the Hotel Manager, is there to help. The local staff are great. Their English is better than my Thai, so no complaints about communication. It gets there in the end. The apartments are beautiful and do allow for home cooking should you wish. Bedroom is separated from the lounge room and gives individual space. Personally prefer the upper floor apartments as the pool deck rooms (Sunrise rooms) can suffer a lack of privacy. Ours was on the top floor, the Sunset level. The Ocean level is good as well. There is no lift in the resort, so be prepared for a few stairs travelling to and from your room. Recommend you hire a car if you want to get around. The resort location is well away from the beach. The hotel does have a shuttle throughout the day which is handy but with so many hidden gems on the island, a car can work better for the confident driver.

Arrived late from the Gold Coast to be greeted with friendliness and a lovely cool healthy drink, shown around and taken to my suite. Absolutely loved it all, comfort, nice and cool and everything i needed for my holiday. Breakfast was so good with many choices, i was sad there was not a thai option for breaky, but everything was great. The staff are so helpful, my treatments were done very well, the pool is amazing, clean with the best views and Gary and Chris are such kool guys and really help to make your stay on the island a happy one. I was travelling alone but also meeting a family member and the staff at code helped me to feel comfortable about that meeting. I love all the restuarants on the beach, and definitely will be back and bring my husband to enjoy the experience i had, i,ll be back soon, Janet. Qld

Room Tip: I think all the rooms would be lovely here as it is quiet and even people in the pool respect other...

We decided to stay away from noisy Chaweng for some quality couple time. The view from our room was amazing. We were able to chillax and enjoy the contemporary, modern feel to this hotel. Ideal for business and leisure travellers. Good internet connection. The reception staff Joe and Ice were helpful. The manager and owner were both friendly and welcoming. We booked directly with the hotel and got value for money. We would happily go back! :-)

Thank you Victoria for your ' hidden gem ' review. A unique stay at a boutique hotel sums us up nicely. We are indeed away from 'noisy' chewang and i,m glad to hear that you found time for that quality couple time that you were after.
The fact that you were able to ' chillax ' means that we provided for you exactly what we are trying to give. A pleasant stress free stay.
I will pass on your compliments to our front office staff and thank you again for taking the time to leave that great review.

Best regards

Thank you Aditya, Dhanyawad, I,m Happy to hear that you left us with such warm feelings. I know that you enjoyed your stay with us but it is nice to see you put it here on tripadviser.
You use the words ' diamond ' and 'amazing' when describing us so there is no doubt that you enjoyed your stay with us. We will indeed be very happy to see you again on your next visit to Koh Samui.
So thanks again and please give a big namaste to the PInk City for me.

We have just rounded off a month's tour of SE Asia with a couple of nights at Code. Having travelled extensively, we can say that this is one of the best hotels we have stayed at. I think the view over the infinity pool looking out over the Gulf of Thailand is hard to beat. The service was excellent and the managers took the time to talk to all the residents over breakfast. The rooms are stunning with all the facilities of an apartment with lovely white leather sofas to enjoy the views from. We were at the end of our travels and so were happy to relax by the pool but I know there was a courtesy bus down to the local beach. The hotel taxi back to the airport was 800 tbh and takes around 25 mins. Whilst this sounds a lot, all taxis in Koh Samui are double the price of the Thai mainland. I would recommend this hotel without any reservation.

Thank you for your wonderful review.

After a lot of traveling i am happy to hear that you ended your travels with such an agreeable stay here at Code. I believe that we are indeed ' affordable luxury ' as you say and a perfect Break from the traveling experience. You are not the first of our guests to end their travels with that little bit of luxury.

It is nice to hear that you enjoyed code so much that you didn,t need to leave the hotel.Enjoying our flat screen TV and soaking up the view without the need for anything else.

Best regards,

Garry.

We stayed here for 2 nights for long holidays. If you expect a perfect getaway from your busy work life, this place is perfect for you. We can stay in the room all day just to watch tv with the sea view background. Breakfast here is also great with variety of quality food. The location is also great, not far from Chaweng beach and Fisherman's village where there are many good and chic restaurants/bars. Code gives you perfect combination of mountain and sea with reasonable price. Come see for yourself!

P.S. We'd like to thank Gary who always make sure everything is okay during our stay and was super helpful with our transportation. We def will come back!

I spent one week at Code and in my opinion, for the price, Code is the best value hotel I have ever stayed in.
The view from the hotel is STUNNING. Waking up to it in the morning guarantees a smile on your face all day. If you can tear your eyes away from the view to look at the hotel for a minute it is also beautiful. One of the staff told me it had won some design awards and I don't doubt it for a second. The staff keep the place immaculately clean as well. The restaurant and spa were great and although the hotel is in a quieter area of Samui, there are plenty of eating options within a few minutes of the hotel, the courtesy bus is a great idea!
