You know you have found a fantastic resort when you travel with a group of 30 people and everyone is already planning their next trip back due to the fantastic time they all had! We held our wedding here last week and could not have asked for a more magical day or experience. Julie's service was quick and precise with every communication we had and everything worked out perfectly on the day which is fantastic considering she is also the resident manager! All our guests loved the accomodation, food, entertainment (resident DJ is excellent) and excellent service from all the staff (special mention to Aung who's service is amazing and always with a smile!). Even little things such as our cake, table settings and fairy lights had an amazing attention to detail and completed the night...... If anyone is looking for a perfect wedding venue with super service and a chilled ambience this is the place!

In regards to the rooms we stayed in a penthouse suite which is amazing value for money and would have to be the nicest accomodation we have ever stayed in ourselves. Nothing beats waking up and having a dip in your own private pool overlooking the Lamai coastline in the morning! A number of our guests stayed in other rooms from the club suites up to the two bedroom penthouses and all were clean, air conditioned and very comfortable

Breakfast in the morning is top notch with a number of choices from the menu plus a buffet of breakfast choices for a lighter meal which you can have whilst looking out over the water. Happy house in the afternoon is a welcome treat after a long day in the sun and the little desserts in the fridge every night were a winner!

Overall a fantastic resort that we cant wait to come back to, keep up the fantastic service and thankyou for giving us the wedding we have always hoped for! Special mention again to Julie, Claire and Aung as you all made our experiences memorable!

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw were fantastic, if with a group would recommend a penthouse or villa with a poo...

There are many many options for good quality accommodation in Koh Samui making it difficult to choose the one that will tick all the boxes. If you are looking for the place that has everything for an relaxing holiday and provides great customer service then book in Beach Republic. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment with its own pool and most importantly air conditioning, and it was probably the best equipped apartment we've ever experienced. The glassware, crockery, and cutlery are all high quality, the furnishings and electrical appliances are modern, and the bed is soooo comfortable. They even have a pillow menu, which is a great example of the attention to detail that management have invested.
The food and drink options are extensive enough to satisfy most people, and are good value for money. In our 7 day stay there were 2 banquets with different themes and an abundance of food. There can be some language challenges when ordering, so speak slowly and ask to have the order read back if you askfor chsnges to the standard menu.

Finally the pool and surrounds are just fantastic, one of the best features being the double sun beds that allow you to lay about in the sun or shade enjoying the incredible weather with drinks nd food served right to your chosen location.

Room Tip: If you can afford the 1 bedrron penthouse it is well worth it.

Have recently returned from yet another wonderful holiday at Beach Republic, Samui. We cannot thank all the staff enough for looking after us so well. The pool team, especially Aung, were attentive and always on hand, the fab sounds of Dan, the DJ in the afternoons, were spot on to get you in the mood for happy hour(s). The menu/food was excellent, beautifully presented and the Sunday Brunch an absolute MUST! As always the accommodation was immaculate and the ‘evening treats’ delicious. Muek, the Housekeeping Manager could not have been more charming and clearly has everything under control. Now we just have to save up so we can go again!

We stayed here in April, unfortunately we took the Yorkshire weather with us! When the sun was out this place is amazing, coll, trendy with good DJ vides. Service is great, everyone has a smile on their faces and want to make your time at Beach Republic special. The appartments are spacious, the bed comfortable and with a big balcony. The beach, pools, bar and restaurant were lovely. Food was excellent! If you want a exclusive beach club this is it! Overall very very nice.

Staying only for a few nights January 2013. Service and staff very good. polite and helpful and there seems to be 1 staff member for every 2 guests. Food tasty, well presented. Drink fairly expensive for thailand. Beach beds comfy and plenty of them for a small hotel. Paying day guests have a seperate area to relax. Rooms were large, cool and decorated to a high standard. Downside is the beach is all that and there not much directly around the hotel. DJ sets around the pool were great the young at heart and young! We had a family birthday whilst we were there and the hotel staff could not be more helpful in making the day a really special occasion.

I was a little hesitant to stay here because I worried it would be too preppy/douchey of a vibe, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Stayed here just after New Year. Really enjoyed the stay.

The hotel is in a pretty nice location. I liked that I could take the shuttle to many different places in Lamai and easily take it back. The driver was always on time. Just wish it ran a little later.

The room was flawless. Without a doubt, one of the most spectacular rooms in this price category that I have ever been a guest at in nearly 1 million miles of international and domestic travel. The balcony afforded unbelievable sunset views. The spa bath is an excellent touch, and the loungers were the perfect place to have a cigar at sunset.

The beach itself is a little small, but nice. Very safe water/currents. The clubhouse and the patio/pool/lounger area is PERFECT. I spent almost two entire days lounging there, which I was not expecting. Service is impeccable. Music is so, so nice. The DJ does an excellent job picking relaxing music (think Bonobo, Thievery Corp, Aphex Twin, etc.) I will suffice it to say that I cannot say enough good things about the atmosphere near the beach.

The food is excellent. Eat breakfasts here and try at least one dinner.

Service was also almost flawless. They forgot me at the clubhouse while I was waiting for an early check-in, but I didn't mind too much. The rest of my time there, the staff went far out of their way to help me with anything I needed.

I would recommend highly for couples, maybe not so much for singles. Everyone here was a couple. People were surprised that I was staying there solo and I did feel like most of the venue was geared exclusively to couples. If you want to eat dinner at the clubhouse, be prepared to feel a little lonely. :>

If I am ever back on Koh Samui, I will definitely book another stay.

For 5 years of living in Thailand I've been around many places, but this one remains the best I've seen so far!

Whenever you are a single-travelling backpacker, or young couple, or a family with small kids - you will enjoy Beach Republic till the very last moment of your stay. The place features a unique atmosphere of European fanciest sea lounges, combined with magnificent sea views of the Gulf of Thailand and, of course famous Asian hospitality. In addition, Beach Republic can boast one of the best SPAs in Thailand (which is, by the way, quite cheap given the quality of service).

Accommodation is professionally designed and kept in very good condition. Staff is very caring and attentive to guests. Plus, the place is located closely enough to all areas of interest, which is quite handful if you travel with kids.

The only drawback we faced was the lack of noise isolation from the neighboring room. Thus having noisy neighbors can be quite irritating.

Nevertheless, I will definitely return here and recommend this place to my friends.

Room Tip: If you stay with small kids - choose the suite room. It's much easier to make it child-safe.
