Rocky's Boutique Resort
Ranked #2 of 51 Hotels in Lamai Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We recently spent 10 nights at Rocky's for our honeymoon and were more then pleased with our choice of resort.

The grounds are outstanding, clean and lush environment very inviting and gives you a sense of privacy.

We stayed in the "honeymoon suite" which is room 333 right on the beach and is a corner room which allows for some extra space including a large washroom.

The Staff at Rocky's were polite and always welcomed you with a smile! We enjoyed talking with them and they certainly made our stay that much more enjoyable !

The bistro restaurant delivers a wonderful breakfast every morning - a great way to start your day. The full day menu is also wonderful, tasty choices for both western and thai dishes.

Although the resort is a bit further off the main beaches it is nice to come back to the calm and relaxing environment after being out exploring the island all day. It is an easy cab ride / or drive to just about everywhere on the island - and Lamai beach is within walking distance.

The pools are both lovely, wasn't too hard to get a spot even when the resort was full - a couple of days (when the resort must have not been at capacity) we even got the chance to have the pool all to ourselves !

We recommend this resort to all - especially for a honeymoon spot !! We look forward to visiting again!

Thanks to all the wonderful staff for making our honeymoon such a memorable one!

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Rocky’s last month. It really is an oasis of tranquillity compared to Lamai and Chaweng; and certainly one of the most beautiful resorts we have stayed in. If there for any length of time I would recommend renting a car, so you can get out and see everything else Koh Samui has to offer; otherwise you could find that just staying around the resort might get a little claustrophobic after a while. We rented a small Suzuki jeep (from CH tours) for most of our stay – very cheap, although a little “agricultural” as regards comfort and noise levels.

We booked a “Deluxe Junior suite Ocean-view”; but were actually given a “Large Junior suite Ocean-view” (room 904). I think these are pretty much the same price, but I would strongly recommend the latter. The room was a good size, with the differentiation between living and sleeping areas demarked by a slight change in floor level. Attention to detail and decor was charming – and the view of the sea from the balcony was superb.

Our room was situated at the crest of the hill separating the lower and upper halves of the resort. It was just a few yards to the garden-pool area, but very private. Unless you are elderly or infirm the climb between the two main parts of the resort isn’t really anything to worry about – perhaps 30 steps in all.

We had high expectations of the food – and certainly weren’t disappointed. The relative locations of the Bistro and Dining room had been switched since we originally booked – the latter is now located by the upper garden pool area – with the Bistro “on the rocks” overlooking the sea, which is a fabulous location. We only ate in the Bistro – and whilst it is expensive compared to many other restaurants on the island, the food we ate was sublime. Western food is pricey (tenderloin steak for 850 THB); but Thai main courses were only about 250 – 350 THB, a differential in price of about only 50 – 100 THB compared with most of the other restaurants we tried. The quality of the Thai food at Rocky’s, however, is something else; and (from my limited experience) I suspect could be regarded as Thai “haute cuisine”.

The beach at Rocky’s is lovely – secluded and clean (swept every morning); and the Bistro staff will serve drinks and snacks to you at your lounger. It is possible to swim – but you need to stay pretty horizontal in the water to avoid the rocks; and use the water-shoes which Rocky’s provide.
For us, the thing that really made the resort was the quality of service provided by the staff. Everyone, from Reception staff to the guys looking after the grounds, was welcoming, cheerful and attentive. The waiting staff in, particular, were outstanding – a note to Martin, the General Manager- please pass on a special thanks to Cherry, Polly and Tiw – lovely ladies who would be a major asset to any restaurant lucky enough to employ them.

Our grown-up children want to visit Koh Samui with us – and so we are planning to return next year. If we can afford it, we’ll be back at Rocky’s (and if not, we’ll be back for a few special meals). We loved it.

Room Tip: Loved the privacy and scenery from ocean-view suites.

Gorgeous place - grounds, pools, restaurants, everything was beautiful and well maintained. The room was stunning.
Excellent breakfast buffet and I really liked that you could order things a la carte as well - reduces buffet waste and everything is fresh.
Appreciated the shuttle into town and used it a few times.
A bit out of the way, but not an inconvenience - lots of shared taxis around.

Thank you,We admit that we are not in town, most of our guests prefer that, away from the hustle and bustle, no vendors too.

My husband and I were recently married at this hotel, and thanks to the wedding planner Ann this was a perfect experience. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was planned to perfection by Ann leaving myself and my partner to relax and enjoy ourselves for the run up to the wedding. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Martin the manager and Lucas are always around to make sure your stay is perfect. I hope to return for a special wedding anniversary.

This was the most disrespectful place I have ever stayed at, the staff were rude, coming into our room as we were packing our bags to check out and going through our rubbish, and trying to clean the room, check out was at 12pm and at 10:30 they were trying to shove us out the door and for the money we spent this should not happen. Everything was overpriced the manager Martin said they didn't make any money on outside services what a lie we discovered that to be. Total rip off for money DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU DONT WANT TO BE DISSAPOINTED

We are sorry that you feel your stay here was not as expected, despite what you feel, our staff are Thai and as a result are naturally polite and kind.
With regards to your check out, our staff were merely checking your mini bar and not cleaning the room. I am sorry if you felt pressured to leave, but this was not the case.
However, I am looking into our procedures to prevent this happening again.

We have just booked another trip to Thailand and Rocky's Resort is on out list again. We generally don't go back to the same resort but this is truly a beautiful place we just couldn't resist another visit. We have noticed that there have been extensions around the property, extra dining area, rooms, can't wait to see the new additions. We love the fact that it is not in the middle of the action, peaceful and relaxing. If you need to visit the main centres only a cab trip away or Rocky's provide free shuttles. See you soon Rocky's.

My husband and I travelled to Thailand for our honeymoon back in Feb 2012. We stayed at several hotels and one of them was Rocky.

Wow wow wow! What a great hotel! So clean and every tiny little details was well thought of. We had a great sea view room. Staff were extremely friendly and we felt so welcome. The atmosphere was very serene. I loved the decor!!

The only little niggle would be I didn't find much veg option at the hotel restaurants. And there isn't a variety places nearby...
