The location is perfect if you want to get away from everything crazy that Thailand has to offer. We were there for 4 days and had a wonderful time with the kids. The hotel is just beautiful and leaves you speechless as you walk into the main lobby. The staff was friendly and was extremely helpful with our kids who would spent a few hours a day in the kids club. The air bar is the perfect place for an evening drink though and you can lie around doing absolutely nothing.
The flames seafood restaurant is right on the beach and is perfect for a quiet evening however the food (buffet) was nothing to write home about.
Overall a brilliant experience ...

Stayed at this hotel in January and didn't want to leave. We loved that it was quiet and peaceful and away from the madness of Chaweng. The ocean view room we had was huge with a day bed on the balcony and great views. The spa treatment was amazing and left my skin feeling soft for days and the food was excellent. The watermelon martini's are delicious. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: We saw a few rooms while we were there. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

This Hotel has been open for about a year and it ticks ALL the boxes for luxury and indulgence. Fantastic room (we had a beach villa) with every luxury that you could imagine in the room. The detail of comfort and service was above 5 star and the food indulgent and an experience in itself. The seafood at "Flames" was amazing. The "Air Bar" was only one of the incredible delights at this dream resort. Experiencing the sunset there sipping cocktails took me to nivana. ALL of the staff were friendly and efficent and just seemed to be there at the moment you needed something but never intrusive. We loved this resort so much, we are going back at Easter to relive the luxury and delight again. Oh yes....the Day Spa was magnificent and I had the best facial of my life.

Room Tip: Book at beach villa...magnificent

On our family holiday we arrived at Koh Samui and were excited about the prospect of spending a week there. Having been spoiled at Intercontinental's Hua Hin resort before this would be hard to match but the staff made every effort to live up to that.

As the location is so secluded it was a little difficult to find but I guess that's what qualifies a hideaway. We loved the warm welcome and easy check in but were at first a little disappointed that we were appointed a pavilion room rather than the main Ocean View suite. In retrospect, however, this was probably the better choice.

The upper floor pavilion room was beautifully set up and furnished, very open but felt - probably due to the extra bed and baby cot - a little cramped. The view both from the balcony as well as the bed were terrific - after we had the TV taken out which was blocking the view. (Thanks for fulfilling this request!) For Royal Ambassadors the mini bar policy is somewhat restrictive, limiting the selection to soft drinks and beer only.

We loved the many different pools and made an effort to at least take a morning swim once in each of them. Our favourites, however, were the beach pool (which could offer an area of shade in the shallower kids area) and the main infinity pool. Unfortunately, the beach is not that inviting to swimming but the pool is a good substitute. As soon as we entered the pool area there was always one of the staff to cover the selected sunbeds with towels, serve drinks and a few bites.

As the location is a little remote we opted for the hotel's restaurants some evenings, all of which offer great quality food even though the menus could have offered a bit more variety between the different restaurants. The beach restaurant is fabulous for a relaxed family dinner with your feet in the sand and an after dinner drink at the fireplace under the stars ... really enjoyed that! A must-see is also the Air-bar on top of the cliff for a sundowner cocktail - views of the ocean and the breathtaking sunset.

We found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable in providing advice on things to do and see and places to eat around the island and took to exploring it a little in the afternoons (be sure to walk up to Waterfall #2 and see the hustle and bustle of Chaweng ... to be glad to be able to get away from it again and retreat to Baan Taling Ngam). We had wanted to take the snorkelling trip to Aong Thong with the hotel's speed boat but unfortunately the minimum number of passengers was missed by one which we found somewhat sad.

Room Tip: Tropical pavilion rooms or main building suites offer the best views

Having just returned from 10 days in Koh Samui staying at this fabulous hotel, we couldnt recommend it enough to anyone seeking a totally relaxing, purely indulgent holiday without paying a fortune.

We wanted a quiet location and this resort was ideal, away from the chaos, yet with plenty to do, we could have been the only people in the hotel despite it being at 100% occupancy.

We booked a Premier Ocean View King Room, and couldnt believe our luck when we checked in and were told of our upgrade to their flagship One Bedroom Beachfront Pool Villa - and we certainly werent disappointed. Not that we would have been disappointed in the original selection, but the beachfront pool villa was at another level.

Apart from the occasional fabulous seafood meal on the beach at I-Talay 3 minutes walk along the sand, we didnt leave the resort. The facilities were amazing, the sunsets to die for, and the Dirty Martinis the best ever!

Luke, the lovely Aussie chef did wonders in the kitchen(s) and the food in every location was terrific.

Cant stop raving, and couldnt recommend this place more... Will be back for sure.

Room Tip: If your budget stretches to a One Bedroom Beachfront Pool Villa do it! Ask for one of the ones from 505-512 as they dont have the communal pool in front of them and you have more privacy. We think ours (507) was in the best location!
