The Sunset Beach Resort is out of the way on the "secluded" side of Ko Samui. It is a long way from the tourist traps so if you are looking for an isolated beach holiday this is a pretty good spot to start. The beach here is the cleanest I have seen in Thailand.
We stayed in a Garden Jacuzzi Villa which was a good, clean and had everything we needed. The furniture and fittings weren't particularly high end but everything worked. The bed was firm but comfortable and the fridge and air conditioning worked well.
The outdoor bathroom was huge, private and had some nice fixtures. We were told there was only warm water however the water temperature in the shower and jacuzzi were perfect. Being an outdoor bathroom quite a few leaves, flowers and the odd bug get in though.
The villa courtyard, plunge pool and sala were fantastic but not particularly private. The gardens were lush and felt really tropical; the plunge pool was a nice temperature and was cleaned daily to remove the leaves and other plant matter (which was appreciated).
The staff were friendly and attentive and service was always speedy.
The negatives are that being on the quiet side of the island it is a bit of a hike to get anywhere and the food at the restaurant wasn't anything to write home about.
If you are looking for a secluded spot on a Thai island at the right price check out Sunset Beach.
