“I am mostly happy with the resort itself.”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was my second stay, and I am happy enough with the resort itself. The rooms are well enough equipped, and the balcony even on a cheaper room at the side overlooks greenery. The food and drink is fairly decent, and the pool is big enough to swim some lengths. The grounds are well cared for and in good shape, not tired looking. The bed was comfortable too, and the air-conditioning worked well enough. The staff are great all around, and as any frequent visitor to Samui knows, that is not the norm here. The service minded attitude of the staff is one reason I keep returning to this resort.

One minor problem I noticed both times is that the room safes are too small to accommodate laptops. Another dislike I have is that more than once I happened to use the washroom by the pool and a staff member used the facilities at the same time. He happily did his business in the toilet and then when right back to polishing silverware, without washing his hands. The same guy often served my food and drink around the pool. Quite disturbing, but if I had to guess, this behavior may possibly be the norm in Southeast Asia.

Finally, the only thing that really cut into the enjoyment of my stay was something that is the same anywhere in Thailand probably: countless huge Germans chain smoking all day around the pool. It is pretty hard to enjoy relaxing and reading a book when you constantly subjected to vile second hand smoke wafting all over the place.

This is our second time back to this hotel, previous visit during the peak of Christmas 2012. Staff here are really friendly and willing to always help out, our only criticism is for the week of our stay we only had hot water at 3 pm in the afternoon on two occasions, the rest of the time the water temp was about 37 degrees C, this was despite swapping rooms during our stay, eventually gave up on maintenance. If the hotel wants to maintain its high rating, they need to fix problems like this.
Despite the water we had a great stay, hotel is in a good location with plenty of beach and street places to eat.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms get a good breeze in the afternoon, also more privacy, unless you chose a villa t...

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of an island hopping holiday and it was by far the best place we stayed. The reception staff transcended that professional sheen of friendliness you get everywhere in Thailand and instead were genuinely friendly, willing to help and very welcoming. We felt at home immediately. We were shown to our room which was very spacious, very clean and had a huge comfortable bed in it. (all the ingredients you need!). We had a quick walk around the place to find a nicely sized swimming pool (not too huge but adequate), loads of loungers and then the beach. It was idyllic. The restaurant's tables extended onto the beach and you can actually dine on the sand on chaise longues under candlelight if you wanted to, but I was on holiday with a friend and that would have just been weird.

The breakfast was fantastic with the standard cooked-to-order eggs on offer and a wide varied spread of just about anything else you may want for breakfast. The servers in the restaurant (who also work in the evenings) were particularly friendly and really looked after us.

The location could not have been better (being on the beach), and it was conveniently a two minute walk to the main strip so we didn't get the noise.

I highly recommend this place for it's warmth, it's beauty and it's fantastic staff.

We just spent a great time at the Thai House Beach Resort. We booked a Villa (B) which was excellent and worth every penny. The location to the sunday night market and a short stroll to many restuarants in the area.
The breakfast had a good selection each day and the staff were great - very attentive and good service.
Did have 1 bad meal, they can't cook a steak. They could however cook great thai food.
The website pictures are exactly like the resort and will happy recommend the resort to all my friends and collegues.
thanks again thai house resort for a lovely holiday we will be back.

Room Tip: If you can afford it book a villa

Friendly and helpful staff, rooms looking a little tired but clean and comfortable, good pool area and deck chairs on beach. Breakfast included was good quality, meals in restaurant good but pricey compared to other places around. Utopia restaurant 2 doors up beach was a good spot for friendly staff, meeting people and cheap food. Cot was supplied free of charge for our baby but only had bottom sheet, need to bring blanket or wraps as room air conditioned.

We have just returned from a 3 week vacation in Thailand. This hotel is located in what seems to be heaven on Earth!! Room was good (not big as other rooms we saw in Thailand), service was generally good (except for the night shift receptionist who accused us of stealing a stupid bath robe we never received when we checked out). Breakfast was very good and plentiful. But the greatest asset of this hotel is its beach This is paradise!!!
If you look for peace and quiet don;t go to Chaweng. Stay in Lamai beach, and this hotel is a very good choice.
