We spent a week in Code as we wanted a relaxing holiday. Well we got it, the place is modern, clean with one of the best views I've seen in a while. All the staff from the manager Georgina, Ice at the front desk and Shen my masseuse were all friendly and willing to help nothing was too much trouble.
The food was excellent and well priced not the normal hotel rip off, as was were the spa treatments of which I sampled quite a few!
The pool area was great with a great view and plenty of seating areas from normal sun loungers to full comfy day beds.
The rooms all have great views but ours on the top floor was amazing, well designed making the most of the views even from the bed.
A shuttle bus runs you down to the beach. It is a 10 mins from Mae Nam and 20 mins from Bophut so don't expect put to walk to places. The ride to the beach is only a minute and there are some really cool and good places to eat within walking distance (check out my other reviews) and the hotel give you a mobile to call them when you need a lift back up the hill.
We hired a car through the hotel and the price was very keen compared to outside rental agents for a large SUV. It is not to difficult to navigate or drive on the island and it's a great way to explore or get lost as we did but it was a great way to see the island.
Highly recommend CODE and the staff can't fault it.

Dear Graham,

It was a pleasure to welcome you and Alison to Code. Thanks for your kind words about the staff and service you received whilst you were here.

I know you were both very impressed with our spa facilities and had daily massages.
Hiring a car is one of the best ways to explore the island, and as you mentioned we can organize for you at reception.

Thanks for high recommendation and we look forward to seeing you both again soon! Maybe when you need another suit!

Take care,

Georgina Brian

We've recently come back from Thailand and had the pleasure to stay at Code. Its located in an idyllic part of Koh Samui, wtih a fantastic sunset view. The food was excellent and the service even better. Staff had a great knowledge of the local area, and when we hired a scooter from them they set us on our way with all the best places to go. Highly recommend Code to all travellers passing through Koh Samui. Will be back soon!x

I have stayed at CODE hotel before, with just my husband but this time we went back with my 2 children, although the hotel isn't geared towards children i couldn't have asked for a more welcoming response to my two little girls. The staff are very friendly, and i would like to say a special thanks to the hotel manager Georgina for all your help while we there, although the pool is lovely we spent alot of time at the beach, the hotel tuk tuk takes you down there, and you if you've just missed it then for 100tbh it will make any extra trip, which i think is quite reasonable. The rooms are gorgeous, and the views are literally breathtaking. We ate in the hotel restaurant quite a few times and the food was delicious, my favourite was the Massaman curry, they also do western food, which the kids loved, especially The Code Burger and chips. The breakfast was my favourite though, there was anything from fruit and yogurt to omelette's and eggs anyway, which definetley pleased my husband. The hotel has so many briliant features its hard to name them all, but the spa is a definate must for a lovely massage. I would like to say a massive thankyou to the CODE team for making our holiday a truly unforgettable one.
I would like to think i will be visiting again in the not so distant future.

Dear Jo,

It was lovely to welcome you and Billy back to Code once again along with your two daughters, Poppy and Emily! They are gorgeous girls; my staffs were in Love with them both!
As you say you spent most of your days on Bangpor beach, as the girls could run around and play in the sea! Kids love beaches and it gives you the chance to relax also.
Thank you for compliments on the food in Vanilla restaurant, the head chef is very passionate about sourcing local fresh produce on a daily basis.


Looking forward to welcoming you all back very soon!

Kind Regards,

Georgina Brian

We stayed here back in Feb 2013 for a week.
Lovely design and outlook to sea - especially from the top floor. But everything is White White White it is amost blinding. I had to use my sunglasses inside
Bed was very hard, ended up bringing in the cushions from the day bed to try and make the bed softer.
Restaurant average, free massage ? - could not book in as was always booked out.
Staff were great and loved the idea of the mobile phone given to each room to use both in the hotel and outside.
Beware you are a fair way back from the main road and you would be better of hiring a scooter to get arround or you would have to rely on the schuttle we knew this so to us this was not a problem, beware the top carpark this is very very steep to get into on a scooter
Great pool to relax arround .

Room Tip: Go as high as you can but beware there are no lifts

My family and i stayed at the fantastic Code hotel for a total of 10 days and we had an excellent time ! The view from the rooms and the pool is absolutely stunning you can see the sunset and the sunrise from most points around the hotel.
The food was absolutely delicious with a massive range of western and thai food my favorites had to be the chicken burger and the chocolate fondant.
The rooms where modern and comfortable with a huge double bed, t.v sofa and cooking space, with a lovely bathroom to match. The services in this hotel where absolutely amazing ranging from the swimming pool and the bar to the tennis courts and the shuttle buses which took me to the beach everyday (Only a 2 minute drive away) the staff where excellent and welcoming i would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff and managers there i hope i can see you again soon.

Dear Jim,

Thanks for your fabulous review of Code! You and all your family were amazing guest and all the staff were sad to see you go. I know you loved the food in Vanilla restaurant, I think you ate the homemade chocolate fondant every day!
As you mentioned each of the suites here at Code have amazing views of the Gulf of Siam, I remember your parents enjoyed sitting on their terrace reading whilst you enjoyed the pool.

Once again thanks for your review and come back to see us again soon! I will get the chef to make a special batch of chocolate fondant just for you!

Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian

On the advice of a friend, we spent a long weekend at CODE. The place is just perfect. The view from our room was sensational, the staff were friendly and warm and overall - I don't think we can fault it. The food was really good too.

We particularly loved the layout of the rooms - so cool!!!!

Thanks everybody @ CODE! Hopefully see you again in the not too distant future.

We only stayed at Code for one night as we were en-route to Koh Tao. The staff were very friendly and helpful and allowed us an early check-in as we arrived in the morning after 2 back to back flights. The rooms, the restaurant and the pool are all well designed in a contemporary style. The breakfast was delicious. The hotel is quite far from the beach which we knew when we booked it but as it was only a stopover that didnt bother us. As it's further from the airport and the piers than hotels in Bophut, transfers to and from the hotel were very expensive at 800THB each way.

Hi there,

Firstly thank you for taking the time to review Code. We always try to give early check in where possible as we know how tiring long haul travel can be!

Thanks for your comment about our breakfast! My head chef will be thrilled!

Our transfer fee from the airport is fairly priced and a lot cheaper than other hotels on Koh Samui. As guest find out when they are here taxi aren’t a cheap way to get around so most guest get a car/bike or budget for it before coming away, by western standards taxi aren’t too outrageously priced.

Once again thanks for your comments.

Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian
