Stayed here for three nights to relax and get away from it all after our wedding in Phuket. Quiet hotel. We stayed in bottom room closest to beach. Rooms were nice. Breakfast served to your terrace every morning is a nice touch. Ordered room service once and for a small intimate hotel they served up some pretty good food. Like everyone said if u want to party then this isn't for you but if you just want to relax and feel like your the only ones at the hotel then it's a winner. Get the spa treatments included in your package. It's a nice touch. All staff very friendly. Only a couple of kilometers to Lamai beach and markets. Busy road did not bother us at all. You can still swim at beach but isn't the nicest in samui. Overall it's a nice and relaxing place to stay for a few nights.

Nice confortable rooms with own seafacing balcony and private jacussi. Super service minded friendly staff. Great breakfast served in your room.
Very nice pool, but a narrow beach. 20 minutes away from Chaweng and the action.
A good value for money hotel.

We loved every second of our stay. The service is wonderful!! The rooms have everything one needs. We stayed on the second floor and enjoyed the most magical sunsets. Breakfast is brought to your room and set up on your balcony. The pool is the centerpiece of this small hotel.

I've stayed in many hotels and residences on Samui. This one took the cake.

Thanks you so very much. We couldn't have enjoyed our honeymoon more!

Room Tip: Ask for a room right at the waters edge. These are further away from the road and we didn't hear...

We had room 3A up on the top with a fantastic 180 degree sea view. The sea is only 10m away but although there is no beach the water is only 1m deep for about 100m out and very clear. The owner and her staff work hard to make you feel special and there is a lovely atmosphere around the place. There are only eight rooms and although the hotel was full when we were here you hardly see anyone about.
Ok, there are a few bits that need replacing but I'm sure she ( the pretty boss) will sort it out. I've read that the owner had three dogs - untrue, there is one dog that hangs around and looks after the place 24/7. Some of the tourists feed him and he doesn't get chased away. He's harmless.
True, it's too far out to walk anywhere apart from 10 mins up to the superb Sea Eu restaurant, only opened in January 203 or down to the 7/11 next to the Muslim Village. We hired a scooter for our 8 night stay and went out to the the south along the back lanes.
The absolute gem of Villa Nalinnadda is that a couple can have free spa treatment every day ( one hour Thai massage, aromatherapy massage, aloe Vera wrap etc). In a Spa studio, with little fish in bowls underneath the hole in the bed where your face goes. The masseurs are excellent and it is a great way to finish off the day before going out.
Breakfast is ordered the day before and they bring that on a tray up to your room at whatever time you have asked for.
As I'm typing this the breeze is coming in from the sea, the pool is lit down below and there is good music coming out of Bose speakers hidden in the border.
This is a gem if you want to be with the special person in your life, but there have ,been two families here this week, one with a baby and one with a 5 year old girl and they have loved it too.

If you want access to the noise of Lamai, don't come here. If you want special times, get here while you can.

Room Tip: Ask for room 3A if you don't mind walking up six short flights of stairs.

There are specific reasons why I'm rating this a five star stay. If you are looking for pure relaxation,this is your place. We stayed four nights (tonight is our last night) and planned to conquer our jet lag, which we definitely accomplished. The place is quaint, with only eight rooms. The staff are especially kind and go out of their way to make you feel welcome, particularly the lady at the front desk. This property offers some special perks to aid in your relaxation. Firstly, they deliver your selected breakfast (many options available including western and Thai options at your time preference) to your balcony. They leave you to enjoy your breakfast in peace while watching the sunrise or enjoying the ocean view. Second, certain packages include spa options. We enjoyed various spa treatments including massage,facials,etc. the place is quiet and often times it felt like we were the only ones here. We didn't want to leave the property!

The room was spectacular! We had the 180 degree ocean view room, which I would definitely recommend. As previous reviewers mentioned, some minor repairs around the facilities are needed but we could definitely overlook those. Our room had an outdoor jacuzzi tub, outdoor shower, balcony with table and two chairs, sitting area, tv, double sink vanity, in room safe.

The location is away from anything touristy. Yes, it is along a busy road, which didn't really bother us. As I write this, I can hear passing cars and scooters; however, this did not impede our sleep or enjoyment in the least. There is also no 'beach' here but we prefer poolside anyways. You can hear the waves easily.

The property was a five minute walk from a seven eleven and it was a ten minute cab ride to lamai beach & town.

If a large all inclusive type atmosphere with several entertainment options is what your after, this is not your place. If, however, you value little to do in a beautiful environment - this is your place.

Room Tip: Pick the 180 degree sea view room. Amazing!

We stayed her in October 2012. We had a fantastic stay and would definitly go again.

The staff were fantastic and could not help you enough. Due to there only beeing 9 rooms you really do get that extra special treatment you dont get elsewhere.

The breakfast was a nice touch. You order what you want the day before and they bring it to your room at the time you want. It was big breakfast and i personally thought it was a very high quality.

The spa was also excellent. We got the free spa treatments that go along with the Beach front view and they were very professional and did a fantastic job.

The cons to the place and why it doesnt get 5 stars from me.

The room while really nice was in need of a bit of TLC. In fact the whole hotel needed a bit of work. Nothing major but the bathroom needed new blinds and the decking round the bath replacing. One of the windows was cracked on our room. Around the pool the decking was loose in places and could do with replacing and treating on a regulat basis. Nothing majorly bad just minor touches to perfect it

Also when we booked we were told it was unlimited spa but there were 2 treatments you couldnt have done and you were also restricted to one per day. I understand they did this so nobdy could monopolise the spa but i felt it was misadvertised.

Also while we were in front room and had no problem i can imagine in the back rooms the traffic may be an issue. But for us it was fine.

Overall we have a fantastic stay and loved it but im unable to give 5 stars due to a few minor things but dont let them put you off staying as i promoise you will have a lovely stay

Room Tip: Ocean collection room

What was supposed to be a romantic stay of six nights turned out to be a one night stay. The pictures on the internet and in real life differ completely. The hotel is so small that the entrance, reception, the bar, and dining room are all in one open area/room.

The location of the hotel is right on one of the main roads. Our room door opened on the busy road and you can hear the traffic day and night. The beach is nothing but a dirty shallow bay and not a swimming beach at all.

The first thing we complained about was the air-conditioning which was not up to standard. Even after “fixing” it, it was still not cold enough. The first night a rain storm broke out and the toilet roof was leaking so bad that we had to call for a clean-up. The romantic feel of an outside bath turned out to be a disaster as the rain poured down and a nice warm bath was not possible. Also the outside shower‘s flimsy curtain was blown by the wind so badly that it was impossible to take a shower without the whole resort looking at you.

When the rain calmed down I tried to have a bath, but we could not clear the rain water from the bath as the tap could not be opened. And if not enough the next morning we woke up to ants in the bathroom! The facilities at this hotel are not maintained well.
We booked out the next morning.

Agoda refunded us for the rest of the days and we found a much better hotel at a lower rate on the other side of the island.
