We just returned from an 8 night stay at this resort. It was our first time to Thailand and from the moment we were collected at the airport the level of service was high. We had a suite on the 7th floor and had wonderful views of the ocean and the lush forestry surrounding us. The breakfast was superb and we took advantage of the Thai selections available including the Dim Sum, Noodle Soup bar and other Thai specialties offered. The pool area is really relaxing and the spa excellent, I had 5 beach massages during our stay and they were probably the best massages I have ever experienced. We only ate at the hotel for dinner one night and that was for the seafood and meat BBQ on the beach which included a fire show, it was excellent and the lobster, crab and shrimp delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Koh Samui, it is about 5 minutes from the main area in Lamai but I was happy to be a little further out as Lamai was a little seedy and very touristy. Take advantage of the hotel car, it is a few dollars more expensive than a local cab but nice to arrive at your destination in comfort and style.

One recommendation if you are looking for good local Thai food, check out Uncle Rengs restaurant which is 2 hotels down, it takes about two minutes to walk there on the beach. Their food and drinks prices are excellent. The hotel pool bars drinks are 3 times the price of other local restaurants, which I am comfortable paying when staying in a resort and spa but the cocktails were super weak and I started to question whether I was just drinking fruit juice.

We had a wonderful trip, thanks for the great memories.

Room tip: If you are in the main building (7 floor Building) ask for a higher level room, as floors 2, 3 & 4 on the right hand side of the building would experience noise from the generator and water delivery truck that sometimes comes early in the morning.

We were staying at this hotel (Villa) for the third time already and it was again a very memorable stay. We were greeted by the General Manager L. Mueller upon checking in and we enjoyed an extremly friendly service by the whole stuff. The villa interieur was re-modelled and it looks more spacier now! Didier, the F&B Manager was at hand most mornings in the restaurant and we got plenty of extra fruits and also managed to add some goodies like salmon and creme cheese to an already exciting breakfast buffet. The choice of fresh juices and herbal drinks is just marvelous! Every day there some special food preparation outside the normal buffet and we really liked the fish in oyster sauce!
The beach is pristine and really private, so we could enjoy our pool as well as the sea. The beachfront swimming pool area can become quite busy at times but there is a wonderful 50m pool in front of the main building across the road and we made good use of it as well as it is never busy and one can really do a good swim there (also suitable for smaller children as pool is not too deep). Two cabanas were recently added to pool area and we enjoyed them big time!
The servicing of the rooms was very good and stuff was keeping a very high level of friendliness throughout our stay. I am sure we will be back!

This place really set the bar when it came to luxury and tranquility. As platinum members we were upgraded to a villa with pool and complimentary breakfast. The villa was simply gorgeous - large rooms with aircon, beautiful showers and ultra comfy bed. The hotel has a private section of a lovely beach and some canoes are available to pick up and head out. Wish we could have stayed here longer - simply perfect!

We do not live at Renaissance but just found this restaurant from the fine dinning guideline. We can say that it is worth for money (around 2300bhat/person). We were greeted by the chef and had chat with him. The staff was also very nice.

There were 5 dishes in the meun. However, we were provided additional one item, stone pot bread by the chef. I and my husband were very impressed of the texture of the bread.

We choosed lamb rib and angus beef as our main course. But next time, we want to try sea bass. The meats were indeed very fresh and the source was very refreshing.

Everything there was very good, except the juices.

We spent 5 glorious days here in mid August! As platinum members of Marriott, we were upgraded to a pool villa and given complimentary breakfast each day. The resort, spa and restaurants are all subperb and the staff is so amazing! There is nothing they won't do to make your stay memorable including a printed list of places not to miss at our following Thai destinations provided by Pooky! The pool villa is so beautiful and relaxing. We had dreamed of this destination for several years and it did not dissappoint.

Room tip: Go for the pool villa!
