We spent 7 days and 6 nights at Sala Samui and couldn't have been happier. From the front desk staff down to the facilities maintenance folks, everyone was helpful, friendly, smiling and warm. We were greeted at the airport by a fantastic driver who made us feel welcome immediately. That hospitality continued throughout the trip. The grounds and rooms were very clean and well maintained. This was especially true for the beach. After walking down the beach past the neighboring resorts, it was obvious they took great care to keep the beach clean and tidy. We found the food to be very good and well-priced. We planned to eat off-resort at some point figuring we'd tire of the food. But that never happened. Our only complaint was the volume of the music during the "Thai Night" which had local musicians playing traditional Thai music. A very small bump in a very enjoyable road.

We contemplated staying at a more expensive resort, but couldn't stomach the 2 to 3 times increase in rates. We are very happy we didn't choose another more expensive location. I don't know how our trip could have been more enjoyable.

We stayed at Sala Samui for our honeymoon in December 2013. The villas were amazing to say the least. Our very own private pool, outdoor bathroom, extremely comfortable bedroom and remarkable attention to detail made the stay special. But then again, these are the things you expect when you check into a relatively expensive resort. However, the hotel policy that TRULY DELIGHTED us was their 'all day in-villa breakfast policy'. We were basically on a very lazy vacation and essentially slept in, mostly waking up after the 'buffet breakfast' timings were over, so when we found out that the resort offers all day COMPLEMENTARY breakfast in bed we were JUST amazed beyond belief. I have travelled all over the world and stayed at 100s of hotels; but have never come across such an amazing policy. For us this is what vacations are all about; doing things on our own terms as opposed to following strict schedules and time tables. Sala Samui made that possible for us and for that very reason we will surely recommend this place to everyone! p.s. The service in this resort was surprising fast as well!

Thank you very much for your PERFECT review ! We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay, and in particular the breakfast arrangements. We serve breakfast in the restaurant until 11 AM, with full buffet, incl show cooking but there is also an extensive a la carte menu to choose from, and a breakfast bar with plenty of choices to make a fresh start of the day. ...and should you oversleep, - after 11 you can still order the breakfast served in your room at any time ! On behalf of the entire team, we would be delighted to welcome you back in a near future !

From the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed and taken care of. The staff here is what makes this place special, the attention to detail, the service and warm smiles we will miss. We chose to stay in a pool villa, which we loved, and only steps away from the restaurant, pool and beach. The open bathroom is a delight, the day bed and sun loungers, and the private pool a treat. The bed very comfortable a roomy.
We ate at the restaurant for every meal, and were very happy with their vegetarian/vegan options. Breakfast is easy and relaxed. A great juice bar with fresh juices made to order. We particularly loved the espresso coffee. For lunch we often ordered a salad, spring rolls, chips and laid on the daybeds by the pool with a cocktail. Lovely. Dinner is also very relaxed, everything glows and is furnished in white which looks beautiful at night. Every evening we would find a hand written message and a little gift from the chef, made us feel very welcome and was thoughtful.
All in all we would return to Sala, loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere quieter away from the busy Chaweng beach with great service and a pool villa.
The position of the resort is good, you can walk into the small town if that interests you. The beach was a bit rough, but still lovely all the same. Always enjoyable to walk along any time of day. We had several massages on the beach. Great for couples or family's.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear lovely. We had a pool villa which we would choose again and recommend if you ar...

Loved this resort went xmas 2013 and new year, would recommend you have breakfast inc because it's lovely ,the staff are fantastic and it's all the little touches.

We had bottle bubbly on arrival, and nibbles, we had a xmas present each villa, free spa, and free meal in the hotel.

Would recommend pay a little extra have pool villa , we had garden lovely was in it every night , immaculate cleaned every day , the maids were fantastic to , everything you asked for they got .

Each villa cleaned top to bottom everyday , inside and out , staff fantastic, other bonus is your just minutes walk from choeg mon resort , lots of bars resteraunts cafés little shops ,and buses into cheweng and lamai but remember barter with the drivers don't pay first price.

We would loved to have gone back this xmas but it meant move ing villas , as we left it to late

Highly recommended , as I've said not cheapest but you only get what you pay for fantastic resort, but also opt on booking not to go to xmas and new year evening dos we saw it last year by 11.30 pm it had finished not even at midnight and very expensive just a tip .

Upon arriving to Samui and finding my luggage did not make the trip with me; I thought my vacation was doomed from the start. I was touched by the helpfulness and extra gesture May and the GM Mr Simarro; who personally welcomed me and put me at ease by lending me a sarong and making sure that my villa was ready so I could rest (and wait) until my luggage arrived 10 hrs after. The intro to the villa's amenities ( choice of soaps, pillows, etc) were a nice touch; and the pool was completely spotless - not a weed / leaf / insect were found on the surface!
The hotel grounds were well maintained, the two pools (one for laps, other for relaxation) was a great touch. The beach was a hop away, and the beach attendants were ready to hand out cool glasses of water to keep us hydrated under the sun. The gym was near the roadside but had a good variety of equipment and weights. The Spa menu had a wonderful choice of treatments and their staff were very professional.
Breakfast featured a great assortment of fresh fruits (mangoes) and western/Asian style dishes, but the main draw was the a la carte menu and the mixed juice / health drinks that you can order at the bar. In the evening the same restaurant featured a wonderful mix of thai/fusion dishes that were extremely flavorful. I recommend the tuna appetizer and the devilish chocolate dessert.
The only awkward moments was that housekeeping times were erratic, maybe it was my own fault for not arranging at the front desk - at times the room was made up when I was away at breakfast, at times it was not done until after noon. The bathrooms were "outdoor" but not awkward to get to; but the toilet may be a bit temperamental- so call housekeeping if you think the water is not flushing fast enough (and to avoid floods, which thankfully did not happen)

This is a place which is focused on creating great holidays for its guests. Every little detail and scenario seems to have been thought of, so you can focus on relaxing and enjoying yourself.

We were greeted at reception with freshly made cold drinks and cold towels, which were very welcome after landing in 30 degree heat! Check-in was quick and seamless, and the staff were incredibly welcoming.

We were shown to and around our room, and given a free bottle of champagne to help us settle in. Housekeeping visit daily and leave you with a clean, fresh room with complementary snacks and bottled water. They also take care to spray mosquito repellant and light the coil burner every evening.

Because we booked early, we were entitled to a free couples massage and a free meal at the restaurant, so we made reservations for those.

The spa was of a high standard, very relaxing and welcoming.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals with each menu offering a wide variety of well cooked and well presented dishes, covering everything from Thai to Western cuisine. Their specials change daily and they occasionally run special events (my favourite being the Thai buffet and barbecue).

The resort is in a fantastic location, a short walk from the town shops, about a mile or so from the fisherman's village and the Big Buddha, and a 10 minute drive (taxi rank at the hotel) away from both the airport and Chaweng. A lot of the boat tours depart from the fisherman's village.

There is also a gift shop, library, computer room and luggage storage available.

Overall, we are very happy to have stayed here, and can't wait to go back! It's an incredibly beautiful place, in a great location along the beach front, with the most friendly and helpful staff you could ever hope to meet.

10/10

Room Tip: The Balcony rooms have a better layout than the Garden rooms, but the Villas are just amazing!

We came to Samui after a few days in Phucket and I was so happy with our decision to stay at Sala Samui. Tucked in the beach of Choeng Mon, the water was an amazingly calm and clean sight as we laid on the beach. Both pools are great with views of the ocean and they even have an ocean kayak you can take our for free.

We rented a pool villa and were greeted each night with a small treat from Chef Nick. The details that Sala paid to our needs were extraordinary. The villa had a nice sized pool and daybed. The bathroom was partially outside and had a rain shower. The mosquitos were a little troublesome but Sala provided the candles and bug spray to keep them out.

The experience at Sala overall was incredible but by far the highlight of the resort is the food. We ventured away from the resort a few times in the 4 days we were there (including Elephant trekking) but nothing we ate in all of Thailand compared to the private 5 course meal we arranged on the beach. The breakfast had a nice blend of thai and american choices and the lunch/ happy hours offered nice menus. The dinners were incredible. If you enjoy the thai food, highly recommend the cooking class as well.

Overall the experience was incredible and made our honeymoon that much more special.

Room Tip: The private pool made for a great honeymoon treat.
