We stayed at the CODE for 5 nights - we initially booked for 4 nights, but loved it so much that we had to extend for one more night.

The CODE is an exceptional accommodation concept. The views are stunning, the apartments are fantastic and above all and most importantly the team who run the CODE are a credit to its success. From check-in to check-out our every need was met and every question answered. Georgina, the General Manager was phenomenal with us and other guests. There is a such an intimate family feel and there is a "spot-on" balance between the interaction with the CODE team and a feeling of relaxation and "me" time. Every morning Georgina would come by our table at breakfast and check in with us to see how we were and what we were up to for the day and offer guidance about sights and things on offer around the island.

Joe was also fantastic with helping us arrange one of the CODE's hire cars. He was very thorough in advising where to stop off around the island, which we really appreciated. We thoroughly recommend that you hire a car to experience the island at its best. It was evident that Joe, Georgina and the team were always going the extra mile and thinking ahead for us. On one occasion, we were walking back from the beach front when Joe was driving by on his way up and told us to get in. It was the 'little things' like that which made the time there so great. As it was low season, we we able to meet a few other couples and at times there was a family feel at Code. The intimate setting was a big plus for us.

We chose to walk up and down to the beach a couple of times; it is a nice walk and takes about 15 minutes at an average pace. You can also take the complimentary shuttle from the CODE which runs during the day at certain times or in the evening it costs 100 THB each way.

One of the best parts of the CODE for us was the infinity swimming pool. No photo will ever do it justice - you have to be in it to really experience it.

The breakfast was perfect every morning. There was always a couple of local Thai dishes as well as typical western favourites. There was always a chef on hand to cook your eggs the way you would like them.

We received complimentary spa treatments with our package. We both chose the Signature massage which was amazing! From our experience, most hotel spas are average at best, but not here...fantastic!

We will definitely be recommending CODE to friends and family and we hope to one day be back again and for a longer stay next time!

Thank you all again for a fabulous time at your resort and to the wonderful team for making us feel so welcome and taken care of during our stay. We will be back!

Best wishes,
Ash and Steve

Dear Ash and Steve,

You have just left and we miss you already! Really you were lovely guest to have stay at Code, always with a smile on your face and enjoying your holiday to the maximum. So pleased you had a restful stay and enjoyed all that Code has to offer. Hiring a car is the perfect way to see the island and stop as and when you like. As you said this can be arranged at reception, along with motorbike and push bike hire. Many of our guest also enjoy walking down to Bangpor Beach where guest can relax in the various restaurants and when you want to come back either stroll back up or give us a call on the mobile phone provided on check in.

Cinnamon Spa is a must with our entire guest it is the best way to spend an hour (or two!) relaxing and switching off.

I will pass all your comments onto my staff who always love to hear the guest feedback. I hope Krabi and Chang Mai is fun!

Once again many thanks for review and I look forward to welcoming you and your friends back in the future.

Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian

After a 40 day extensive trip throughout South East Asia, staying in many luxury & historic hotels, I found myself in residence at Hotel Code for a week while my son completed his scuba certification on Koh Tao. Every possible amenity was offered at Hotel Code from fine & creative dining, poolside cocktails & lounging, the relaxing spa offering nightly massage & a hot ginger tea before bed to the cool modern hip suite with extravagant linens & views of the sea & islands. The staff & manager Georgina assisted me with every whim from arranging a memorable dinner at the Four Seasons Koh Samui & a rental car for sightseeing. Without a doubt I am returning & soon. With friends!!

Dear Tracy,

Great to hear from you after all this time. It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely son. So pleased to read you had a fab time with us. After a long trip Code is a great choice of hotel, we are very low key and in the quiet spot of Koh Samui, perfect for relaxation and recuperation! Our spa last appointment is 8pm so as you say is a great way to wind down after a day relaxing by the pool or on Bangpor Beach.

I am looking forward to welcoming you and your friends back in the future. For the very best rates Tracy visit our website.
Once again thank you for your review.

Kind Regards,

My wife and I stayed at Code with our twin 18 year old boys for 6 days last week. What a stunning hotel and gorgeous views from everywhere of the blue ocean and various Thai islands. The staff were delightful, welcoming and very obliging. The buffet breakfasts were adequate with fresh fruit, eggs cooked any way you desired and a range of hot savory dishes. The coffee was plentiful and very enjoyable. The pool was simply stunning with its infinity edge and plenty of lounges that were never full. Georgina accommodated our tall boys with a larger corner room and a good sized roll-away bed with us in the room next door. The rooms (and entire hotel) were kept spotless which is an amazing effort considering almost every surface was pristine white. You could literally eat off the floor anywhere at Code! Joe (front Office) and Georgina (General Manager) both provided unsurpassed professional and friendly service and we did have some unusual requests. Code was a delightful hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed and it was excellent value for money.

Dear Karen and Simon,

Thanks for posting a review on Tripadvidsor. I am pleased to read you and your boys, Oliver and Tom had a pleasant stay with us. I will pass on your comments to the housekeeping team who really do an amazing job keeping Code gleaming!
The buffet breakfast is perfect for guest staying for more than a few days as every day the dishes change so you will never become tired of the choices!
Once again many thanks for your review, Karen I haven’t forgotten about your fans I am on the case!

Dear Crystal,

Great to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to review Code we really appreciate guests feedback. Your boyfriend certainly was spoilt on his birthday! So pleased he had a memorable day. As you mentioned Crystal we aren’t near Chaweng (around 20 mins by car) although most of our guests choose the hotel because of this. If you do want to see the sights of Koh Samui we have both motorbike and car hire available.

Many thanks for your review.

We had a great stay at Code, the room, pool and restaurant was fantastic. The spa was amazing! Georgina and her team made us very welcome and generously put lots of little finishing touches in our room as we were there on honeymoon. We got out and about on a scooter and loved coming back to the calm of Code after a busy day in Koh Samui!

Hi there,

Thank you for reviewing Code after all this time! I am pleased to read that the start of your honeymoon was everything you hoped for! We always make a fuss of our guests but especially our honeymooners! Cinnamon Spa is a sanctuary for guests to escape to after a long day exploring Koh Samui. I hope the rest of your honeymoon in Koh Tao was also what you wanted.
Many thanks for your review.

Kind Regards,

We were looking for a fairly reasonably priced hotel for one night before we took the ferry to koh Tao. The hotel was perfect for our needs - hassle free, very comfortable and we'll put together. We'd definitely come back.

This was the perfect place to start our holiday. As soon as we arrived we were given drinks and a mobile phone to contact the hotel. The Staff escorted our luggage to our room which was spacious, modern, air conditioned and very very clean ...stepped out on to the balcony to what all I could describe as a mind blowing view! The infinity pool with the view was like something out of a movie. With a single press of a button you can order drinks at poolside with the friendly staff. There's a gym that I went to in the mornings. The food is really nice, we had breakfast and dinner at the hotel. However, apart from this being one of the best places I have ever stayed at, for a more than reasonable price, the thing that really impressed us about this place was the service from the entire Code team. The small things like providing an iron and ironing board in our room upon request and giving us advice on where to go on the island. My partner lost her phone at a local beach party and the manager Georgina was straight on the phone to try and get it back for us. Code ensured that we had a really special holiday. I don't normally write reviews but I had to for this place for all they had done for us. Special thanks to Joe, Witt, Ben and Georgina would not hesitate to come back again.

Dear James,

Great to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to review Code. I know you had a enjoyable stay with us and that your suite here was more than expected! The views as you say really are a highlight of Code. All our guest love the 'pool push button' service, it's a convenient way to have our staff bring you food and drinks all day long whilst you relax around the pool.
I will pass on your comments to all my staff who all go out of their way to make sure that all guest leave with a smile on their faces. At Code we believe that nothing is too much trouble!
You made use of the tennis court James playing each day morning and evening! The floodlit court is great for guests who don't want to play in the sun!

Once again many thanks for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Kind Regards,
