4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Excellent hotel with good comfortable, clean room. Breakfast varied and appetising. Dinner menu could be a bit better but food well cooked and delicious although the lighting was very sparse so difficult to see whats on menu and what you are eating. Stray cats and dogs spoil the idyllic setting a bit. That said have been there several times and will go back again. Magical setting and wonderful grounds.

Have just returned after a two week stay. The hotel is well located in a beautiful setting but refurbishment is long overdue. We stayed in superior rooms which are spacious but very tired and dull. The premier rooms were fully booked. We had problems with the shower in our bathroom and were moved on our second day. Unfortunately, the shower was still a problem with the pressure changing and the shower head swinging and wetting the bathroom. The a/c in the room was very efficient.The buffet breakfast was excellent with a wide choice to suit all tastes. We attended the seafood BBQ and the Thai evening and the buffets were very good. I had a wonderful manicure and pedicure at the Spa which was done superbly by May. We were glad that we chose the resort of Choeng Mon and not Chaweng. A wide choice of restaurants and not overly busy. The island tour offered at the hotel was interesting and good value. The hotel staff are pleasant but there is a language problem. Overall a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Check on the premier rooms, they might be better. The superior rooms on the right hand side of the p...

This hotel is in the perfect location, with lush well kept gardens, 2 pools ( one of which is large enough for an early morning workout) and an excellent on site spa. The breakfast was very good with a wide choice to satisfy all tastes. We were in a premier room which is more than adequate. Choeng Mon beach is idyllic and an excellent choice, the Main Street has a good selection of restaurants and the Wednesday night market brings in an amazing choice of street food.
It is worth a visit to the Big Buddah, a 15 minute taxi ride for 600 baht return. Fishermans village is another good area both for its weekly market and excellent choice of restaurant - we were recommended Krua Bophut and it certainly did not disappoint.

Room Tip: Choose a premier room overlooking the courtyard on the second floor.

Us and 2 very great friends, have just come back from this hotel, it is a very nice place, in the right spot for site seeing, plenty of bars and restuarants around, food varys but you have to try all of them, so many tastes, would say this hotel and all its staff are very helpful, beach is good, and if you need a massage see Mr Noi who has his mat on the beach, to look at him you would not go to him, but as he is nearly blind he does a first class massage,i went to him twice, and our friends also went to him, you come away feeling great, the girls that have beds close by, do not do a proper massage, he gets right down to your back neck and knee problems, as he massages you he sing a local song, and when not busy plays his flute, please do give him a try, you will come away from him feeling great.

The beach is great, the rooms are completely acceptable, the spa services are dirt cheap. Swim, massage, eat, sleep, repeat. Staff was nice, laundry across the street is reliable and CHEAP, you can walk down to big buddha- out the hotel stay right. Will go back if find myself in these parts.

Room Tip: Try to get a boat- closer to the beach and super fun.

Lovely hotel and the location on choeng mon beach was idyllic. Pools and grounds were amazing. Clean, lovely staff. Rooms had everything you needed. A few more plugs sockets would be handy for the usual phone charging, kettle, hair straightners. As you really needed to leave the lamps on, as it was a bit dark. Would go back tomorrow.

Booked last minute to Koh Samui due to troubles in Bangkok on recommendation from someone who had been several years ago. We booked a premier room on the internet but were able to upgrade to a boat house suite when we arrived and were grateful that we did as the space was appreciated.

There were a few choices of restaurants on the road outside the hotel, as well as laundry facilities and massage/spa places.

We ate once at the hotel for lunch and it was not great - much nicer food, and a lot cheaper 5 minutes walk away.

The on-site spa had a 50% off offer on, and I had a number of excellent treatments - this is recommended.

We asked the on-site tour person where we could hire mountain bikes and she said that it wasn't something that was easy to arrange. We stepped outside the hotel and found somewhere immediately that could arrange this for us very easily.

Koh Samui is MUCH more expensive to get around on compared to other islands - we don't hire scooters and were having to pay more on songtaews each evening than we were paying on food and drink. Choeng Mon gets a bit dull after a few days so we needed to get out and about in the evenings.

Giving a 3 rating as the hotel was perfectly fine - just not really what we were looking for. It was evidently part of numerous package holidays and good for families who don't want to do much during the day other than stay by the pool and beach.
