“Wonderful, fantastic, beautiful and overall tremendous”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

My 10 day stay in Samui along with my 88 year old mother and 2 brothers (we are all in our 50s) was for a dual purpose - to attend a family wedding and to have a relaxing, enjoyable holiday in sunny, warmer weather than back home in wintry Western Australia and by staying at this hotel we got that and more. The hotel is wonderful, the rooms very clean and spacious (we had 2 adjoining Sunset Suites with breathtaking views of Mae Nam bay and mountainous landscape and the sunsets were something). The only small negative is that there were not enough drawers for our clothes. The staff are so polite and helpful and the facilities great. We enjoyed the pool and restaurant/bar area Happy Hours. Breakfast was delicious and varied. They have free activities like snorkelling, kayaking and things to do in the pool. There are plenty of sun lounges both at the pool and the beach in front of the hotel. It is very peaceful and the hotel grounds of tropical vegetation are a credit to the hotel's gardeners. The golf buggy service hit the nail on the head to get us up and down the steep journey to our rooms - particularly for our Mum, whom they doted over. Thoroughly recommend the hotel for families and couples looking for a romantic stay. Have a free shuttle service at different times of the day that will take you to Bophut or Chaweng. Thank you for a memorable holiday.

Room Tip: Definitely choose the sunset suites if you want a great view and relaxing time.

We were travelling with a toddler and wanted a peaceful, luxurious Thai experience, with easy access to some beach and pool. Got it here. Our room (sunset jaccuzi) was so tranquil, done up in dark wood with some interesting wood prints on the walls. The view was stunning. An expanse of coconut palms, and then the sea. The reception area and the beach front restaurant where breakfast was served were both very tranquil and welcoming, and the feel of the resort is very tropical.

The staff is super friendly. Owen/Ohn (not sure how to spell it sorry) and Moon at the front desk were so helpful and cheerful. Moon suggested and organised a good day trip tp Koh Tao for us. Rooms are done up daily and requests are quickly attended to.

The hotel is set a 5-10 min walk away from the main road, and the main road has an option of restaurants (including a family run Indian one Khana Sutra) , and a chemist and family mart right where you make the turn for the Resort. The walk was not a problem for us even with a stroller and the hotel staff do offer to give you a ride in the buggy,

The beach is a narrow strip here, and the sand a bit grainy, but it suited us perfectly since our needs were for our little girl to be able to play in the sand and water close to the hotel. The sea is calm here, no crashing waves and the hotel offers you free kayaks.

We had a lovely time!

Dear sandhya c,

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed and informative review about our resort. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us last month.
The tranquil and tropical feel is definitely a good description of our property. Your observations about our beach are also correct, we are happy that your daughter enjoyed it.
What you mention about staff friendliness makes me especially happy, as this is one of our main focuses at Fair House Villas.

Thank you once again for your feedback. We hope to see you again and we wish you a lovely summer.

Spent a few days at this hotel, which was great in every way. The pool area and the beach were beautiful. The restaurant is beautifully located overlooking the beach where we had some very nice meals. Probably partly thanks to fresh ingredients from the huge organic garden that belongs to the hotel. Ask for a tour of it. The staff was super nice and friendly and helped with everything we needed.

I stayed in fair house villa with my friends last Easter and we all fall in love with the hotel.

We had the sunset villa on the small hill, the view during dawn is amazing and gives us privacy. Our room is very spacious with a large bathroom, even we have 3 girls! We also love the jacuzzi outside the room that we could have the lovely seaview while enjoying the bubbles

The staff are very nice and helped us to arrange island day tours and taxi to the shopping street.

On our last day we were invited to the hotel's eco-garden. We planted a coconut tree with our names on. It is a wonderful experience that u cant find in other hotels. We are definitely going back to see our tree later !

Dear Sabinachar,

Many thanks for your review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It is nice that you got to plant a tree in our organic garden and this is something I recommend other guests to try as well. It is also a very nice way for us to remember all the great guests who stayed with us and it is very fun when guests come back to look how their tree has grown.

Once again many thanks for reviewing our resort. We hope to see you again soon.

We stayed a week at the Fair House Villas & Spa in January 2012. The location of the hotel is away from the frenzied beachfronts of the islands, offering a peaceful and tranquil haven. Our experience was spectacular, from the polite, attentive helpful staff to our beautiful and tastefully decorated rooms. The breakfast spread was amazing, so were the dinners had on the beach.
The hotel has a selection of scooters which can be used to go to Fishermans village and other spots on the island. Thankyou for a lifetime of beautiful memory.

Spent a fantastic 9 days at this hotel and found the whole place so relaxing and welcoming. It offers a great range of different suites in a beautiful garden setting towards the end of Mae Nam beach. The Sunset Suite rooms are nicely designed and decorated, the bathroom is large and the jacuzzi on the balcony is a big bonus. The views of the bay and nearby mountains are truly fantastic.
Great pool area and pool-side bar, nice breakfast buffet in a wonderful beach-front setting and very handy free transport to Fisherman’s Village (don’t miss the walking market on Friday) and Chaweng.
The Breeze Restaurant at the hotel is very good but two local restaurants also deserve a mention:
Jin’s Bar – head to the beach and turn left out of the hotel and walk about 10 minutes down the beach. Jin’s Bar is a family-run beach front restaurant with extremely reasonable prices. The traditional food here was the best we had in Thailand!
Karma Sutra –head to the main road and turn left towards Bophut. After about a 5 minute walk you’ll find this small restaurant on the right-hand side opposite the Ibis hotel. Great little family-run Indian restaurant.
Evenings at the hotel were very quiet but it was low season and anyway Mae Nam is not really the right location if you want to party every night. The staff at the Fair House deserve a special mention (especially Job and the other reception staff) for the excellent service with a personal touch and we look forward to returning here again in the next couple of years!

Dear Alex438,

We are grateful that you have taken the time to write this detailed review about your experience at Fair House Villas & Spa and we are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed your stay with us. The view of the Gulf of Thailand from our Sunset Suites and the beachfront dining room is something that many of our guests appreciate. You are correct that Maenam is not the best location if you want to party every night and our main objective is to provide a relaxing, tropical atmosphere for our guests. However, as you mention, we do offer free shuttle buses to Chaweng area, which is only 15 minutes away and should provide enough entertainment, even for the most energetic individuals.

Most of all I am happy to hear that the staff at Fair House Villas & Spa made such a good impression on you. Our staff is without doubt our main asset and to get positive feedback like this makes us very proud. I have already talked to Job and the reception team and thanked them for their good work.

Once again thank you for the valuable feedback. We hope we can welcome you back soon.
