“Mainly sunny with a chance of T-showers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

That was the weather forecast for our stay at the Conrad Koh Samui in late October. Aside from a few niggles, our stay bordered on perfection. This property even managed to surpass our personal favourite, The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah in the serene paddy fields of Ubud, Bali purely on the basis of service and hospitality. Hotel staff was helpful, professional and intuitive thereby increasing our level of enjoyment substantially. The only reason that this property has been given a 4/5 rating is that I have a tendency to examine reviews with 5/5 score with a bit of suspicion. More accurately, Conrad Koh Samui deserved a 4.5/5, with a 5 easily attainable once it irons out a few minor issues.

Property:
The resort is located in the stunning, remote, southwestern section of Koh Samui and is extremely hilly, as many have mentioned in their reviews. Villas in the 100’s and 200’s are recommended for those with mobility issues, young children or those who’d rather walk than wait around for buggies to ferry them from their villas to the beach, pool or Zest. Those starting from the 300's will be positioned over the hilliest section of the property so only opt for them if you’re looking for a mini workout every time you walk back from Zest (for breakfast) or the main pool. However, Villa 305 and 306 are relatively close to the restaurant and offers a central position to enjoy the stunning view of the Five Islands. Buggy rides are a stimulating affair as they wind precipitously along narrow pathways but provide guests with a panoramic vista of the property.

In-room facilities and amenities:

Bathroom - Guests may wish to bring their own favourite bubble bath as I only found bath salt inside the room. The unique cereal bowl of a bathtub took a bit of time to fill hence water wastage may be an issue from a sustainability standpoint. A second TV is available for those enjoying a long soak in the tub but the reception inside the bathroom was horrendous. Hopefully it was due to minor technical glitch that has not yet been addressed during the resort’s soft launch.

Entertainment – Bringing your personal collection of CDs or an adaptor to plug iPods to the Mac Mini could make the in-room experience more personalized but we relied mostly on accuradio.com for our music. The individual villas provided wireless keyboard to facilitate work but Wifi connection was a little inconsistent at times with the system hanging on numerous occasions.

Water - Drinking water was packaged in reusable glass bottles, which gave us the impression that there is a good attempt at sustainable practices at the resort. Housekeeping generously provides four 0.5L bottles in the morning and at the evening turndown service.

Bed – Although the linens and the additional pillow top mattress pad were luxurious, the actual mattress did very little to stop motion transfer and I was left feeling a little disgruntled at the slightest movement made my partner. A Simmons “Do not disturb mattress” would have been nice touch.

Pool - The temperature of our villa infinity pool, which was perfect day in and day out more than made up for the issue with the bed. The main pool was equally enticing (i.e. warmer) and to our surprise both were saltwater pools. Turning off all the lights one clear night, we went for a dip in our private pool and found that the sky was a blanket of stars.

Breakfast:
Despite the wide selection on offer, all of which were beautifully presented, there was still room for improvement in the palatability of the cooked food choices. JW Marriott and Banyan Tree Phuket offered much tastier nosh but to be fair, that's entirely subjective. The freshly made homemade yoghurt parfait was delicious though as were the smoothies. Fruits from Thailand are typically sweet and so were those offered at breakfast. For some strange reason, there was neither a piece of bacon nor a link of sausage in sight. Perhaps there was a focus on providing guests with healthy food options. The food library is rather innovative and we appreciated their use of reusable glass containers whenever possible.

Transportation:
Airport transfer service provided by the resort was good and the ride, extremely comfortable. Upon our exit from customs, we were unable to locate our driver. Thankfully, the Four Seasons driver was kind enough to direct us to the main gate at which most of the drivers were waiting. A tip for guests having difficulty finding their driver: Ask someone (preferably a uniformed hotel staff) for assistance. Alternatively, if Conrad deems itself on par with the Four Seasons, it may wish to consider posting personnel or at least signage at the first exit to ensure a smooth meet and greet process.

This being our first time to Koh Samui, we chose to rent a car to drive around the island in search of beautiful viewpoints, shopping areas and food (for restaurant suggestions, please refer to my Trip Report in the forum under “The New Conrad Koh Samui” thread soon). The hotel is inaccessible otherwise and I would not attempt to walk down the long, winding, unlit, single lane to the main road. Alternatively, guests can have private transport or taxis arranged by the resort. Due to limited parking spaces, the hotel provides free valet service.

Resort facilities:
Both the gym and the spa were beautifully done up and offered a range of equipment for use. Treadmills are iPod/iPad-integrated so technologically inclined guests will find their normal workout routine a little more enjoyable. A knowledgeable trainer was on hand to recommend exercises to target problem areas. The couple suites at the Spa offered the best view while the rooms used for Thai massages only offered partial view at best. With the floating jetty completed, the resort may wish to study the feasibility of a coral reef rehabilitation project to restore the biodiversity that may have been affected during the construction of the property. This would reaffirm Conrad as a leader in corporate social responsibility and the resort’s dedication to sustainable business practices.

Miscellaneous:

The Azure pool bar and the Glow lounge were nice spots to chill out with a drink in hand especially during sunsets. The implementation of a "Happy Hour" could help to draw in the crowds or entice guests to return earlier to the resort as these areas seemed under-utilized during our stay.

All in all, we had a memorable time at the Conrad Koh Samui. The service was impeccable, the grounds, pristine and the property, breathtaking. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

This is a newly opened resort and I can safely say that it has the potential to become one of THE top 10 resorts in the world - all things considering. I did use my Hilton points in exchange for 3 nights there - and being a Gold member, was accorded a complimentary foot massage and breakfast. There is a special deal now where you can redeem a stay at 40% off the usual number of points required - which is a fantastic deal.

The rooms were amazing, just by observing the structures themselves I can see why it took time to build them and the whole place is an engineering marvel. Infinity pools were by the edge of the cliff and waking up to the sight of the five islands (not sure what they were called) must be one of the most beautiful sights in the world! Interior wise it all looked very modern and uncluttered and about half of the villa was dedicated to the bathroom / toilet. You do have to call for buggies to travel around the place but it wasn't an inconvenience to me, just exercise a bit of patience.

Breakfast is not to be missed - they employ a "food library" concept (the noodles are simply exquisite!) but personally I would skip dining at Jahn for now as the food selection they have is rather limited and you could go for much more affordable Thai food elsewhere, say in Lamai beach (although a car is essential - I would advise hiring a car so that you get the freedom to go where you want). There are just too many local joints in town that are not featured on this website (perhaps since they don't come with an English name?) but do be adventurous and try them out!

We were also fortunate enough to be invited to one of the cocktail events they had for guests at the pre-opening of the hotel and everyone there was friendly with lots of food / drinks to go around! When you choose to stay at this resort, you're choosing to be away from the maddening crowd, so don't complain that the town is about 30KM away - you would want to maximize your time at the villa as well.

I didn't really mind the fact that sometimes people didn't address me by my name, the service was efficient by my (and Samui's) standards - when I had my luggage taken up, it was already in the rental car and ready to go when I went up right after breakfast. My only regret was not being able to attend the official opening of the hotel given my morning flight.

For those that are still thinking - think no more - just go and enjoy yourself and indulge in the experience. I'm a seasoned traveller who has been to many resorts around the world, including those high end ones in Hua Hin and I was still blown away by the Conrad Koh Samui. I'm looking forward to be back someday.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that start with 2 if you want to be near the breakfast area, otherwise there really is...

The Conrad has been open for about 2 months, it's not perfect but it's pretty impressive after such a short time in operation and the introductory rates make it exceptional value for a resort of this quality.

First, if you are flying in on Bangkok Airways, don't expect too much, food is mediocre and the seats not very comfortable. Make sure you sit at the front or the back of the plane as when you land you want to be off the plane and into Immigration asap. You exit front and back and if you sit in the middle of the plane you are last off and condemning yourself to an hour trying to get through immigration, not much fun.

Once out of the airport the Conrad team made everything pretty seamless. Transfer was by S-Class (a nice touch when you are expecting a 5-Series BMW) and once at the resort you are whisked around by buggy. The resort itself is set into a fairly steep cliff and so the only way from top to bottom is by buggy, unless you fancy a bit of mountain climbing. Every member of staff we encountered was professional and effective (impressive after 2 months in operation) and extremely warm and helpful (one of the reasons you go to Thailand).

We had a 1 bedroom pool villa and it was gorgeous. We've been lucky enough to stay in some great resorts around Asia and this villa matches up to every one. Inside is spacious, well designed and very comfortable. Top quality bathroom with a great rain shower and free standing tub that overlooks the ocean. Outside is even more impressive with a big private deck and infinity pool that stretches the width of the villa and the views are fantastic across to the 5 islands and the mainland. It's also west facing and so you get some pretty amazing sunsets right from your deck. There is no need to move from your villa which is good because there is no beach to speak of and my one big gripe is they have built an ugly pontoon to extend out past the reef. It just does not fit with the surroundings and also acts as a dam that collects all the ocean debris and traps it against the shore.

Food was good but slightly inconsistent but i'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that is something that will improve as they go on. Breakfast was great, dinner at Zest extremely good and the one let down was room service in our villa. It's mainly the same menu as Zest and i'm assuming comes from the same kitchen but the level of cooking wasn't even close to dinner in the restaurant the night before, hence the slightly inconsistent comment.

In summary, it's the first time i've stayed in a Conrad and based on this experience I would definitely go back to this resort and maybe look at Conrad in the future. The challenge I think is going to be when prices go up and start to get into the Four Seasons and Banyan Tree territory. However, at the current price levels this resort is a real winner and we would definitely go back, take advantage of it while you can!

Stoped at the Azure (Pool Bar) for lunch last month.

We ordered a tropical pizza and a beef burger for lunch and really enjoyed the experience.

I thought that the pizza was particularly fantastic - so much that I wanted to order take away but they didnt have box available for take away yet.

Overall? An enjoyable lunch on Koh Samui.

Didn't stay overnight at property. Only lunch.

We spent 4 nights at the brand new Conrad Koh Samui. The Conrad is my favorite brand of hotels and I had high expectations given the splendid reviews of the property on trip advisor.

First, the good. The service staff were excellent and the 2 lady butlers were superb. I cannot say enough about their friendliness, their superb attitude and the overall level of service was just impeccable. Every request was not too much to ask and by the 2nd day, all the staff knew which room we were in. We did not need to tell them which room we were from and they would ferry us back to our room on the buggy.

The view from the resorts were also spectacular and you could just while away your time by your own private pool, soaking in the beautiful sunsets. I can understand how guests can just stay in the resort and not get out if you are looking to really relax and get away from the city. The private pool in the villa was also a very generous size and we had our own sun beds to lay on while feeling like the only people in the resort. Very nice.

Now, the not so good. As a gold member of hilton honors, there is no executive lounge or room upgrade which is fine. They however, will give you a welcome snack and a bottle of red wine. When we arrived, the tray of snacks was already placed on the table. BUT as the snacks were sweet, the whole tray and table was infested with ants when we got in! I got a shock and had to call housekeeping to come replace the tray. They took a long time, (partly I think due to the fact that the resort was built on the cliff and they had to take the buggy to get to us). I think the hotel really should look into delivering the snack only when the guests are inside the room to ensure the freshness of these snacks.

We also realized the TV was not working (the cables were loose or something) and the wifi couldn't work. We had to wait almost an hour for the technician to fix the TV and wifi while we just sat in the room waiting. It was good that we were not in any sort of rush. This also wasn't completely resolved, as the tv was rotatable to face the bed, for the next 4 nights, we had to be very careful when we rotate the TV, as any sudden jerk to the TV could mean the cables came loose again. It was quite frustrating sometimes.

The bit that I was really disturbed was the number of pests that can be found inside the room. I am fully aware that every villa would come with its fair share of bugs, but given that the conrad is new, i was really quite taken aback. We had the ants problem, and in the next 4 nights, we had a slew of bug problems. We had 2 lizards in the room (1 on the bed!! and 1 on the study table). We also had a cockroach at the TV console (near the mini bar) and a grasshopper and a big housefly in the bathroom. It was a rude shock really, and I can't imagine how if we had not discovered the lizard on the bed, what could have happened while we were asleep. I felt bad that we had to get housekeeping to come and catch these bugs all the time, but I think that a hotel like Conrad really needs to look into these. I have stayed at the Conrad Bali and also several Aman properties I never had to face this problem.

Food wise, We had breakfast at Zest and the spread was quite good. I have to say the pastries were very good. The chef came out to explain all the food and the pastries and spreads (jam,yoghurt etc) are apparently all home made. There are also some thai delights such as fried rice, noodle soup and even curry. One day, I really wanted to have some french toast and my request was gladly met. Very nice! It was also really therapeutic to eat outdoors where you could hear the waves - it was a surreal experience.

We had lunch at Zest once and I was disappointed that the food was not as good (and not as cheap) as what we could get at FIve Islands Restaurant or Green Talay. There was little variety and the taste was not fantastic. As such, we decided not to try any other food in the resort and to get out of the resort for the subsequent nights for food outside. I would recommend Green Talay restaurant, which is just about a 10 minute car ride out. THe food is EXCELLENT and price was very reasonable. Better than Five Islands (which is what Conrad will recommend you)

Transport wise, as the resort is really in a remote location, you will have little choice but to get the hotel's taxi if you wish to get out. We paid THB1500 for a round trip to Nathon, which is a laid back little town where you can get cheap traditional Thai Massage and local thai food. However, you can always choose to flag down a cab to bring you back for about half the price of what you will pay the hotel transport. Having said that, the hotel taxi is really comfortable and if you wish to travel in luxury and comfort, it might be worth booking the hotel transport. We had a mercedes pick us up in the return trip and it was just so worth the experience.

We really hope the hotel can improve on the bug problem, and try to improve on the quality of the food. But Overall, it was a nice relaxing stay. The hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable (they even packed a nice breakfast box for us on our last day because we had a very early morning flight to catch). We also had glorious sunshine all 5 days we were there which makes it all the more perfect.

Room Tip: If you want to walk to the breakfast area, choose rooms around the 100-200 range. We were in the 300...

Conrad Koh Samui must be one of the best Hotels in the world if you love views, food and tranquility. We spent lazy days by our pool watching the islands bobbing in the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves. The resort is away from the bright lights and noise of Koh Samui and to us, this is a benefit. We did hire a car, which was easily arranged and delivered to the hotel, to do some sight seeing but quickly realised that we just loved our private balcony more. The restaurants have wonderful dishes but we found room service to be fantastic, the menu extensive and the service quick. In addition, the room was large and beautifully appointed while the speed of the complimentary Internet was extremely high, a nice touch.

Room Tip: We stayed in #211 so central to the main restaurant.

"Best of all..."
When you arrive you would either drop your monocle at the sight of the view or die on the spot. The view... is spectacular. Watch sunset (1) from the convenience of the room on your sunbrella outdoor settee right next to the small private pool or (2) lie on your giant super king size hotel bed complete with egyptian linen and down feather pillows. You can choose either to listen to the waves or stream music through the Apple computer/TV set. (3) sit in a bubble bath in a giant stone bath tub -- big enough to fill three grown men or (4) and the best option, go to the main pool on level one, sip cocktail from the Azure pool side bar white lying on the pool sundeck...

"And the room..."
I have stayed in ample nice hotels alright and this room, or shall I say villa... is...spectacular (Lost for words). The sheer size of it... I stayed in a normal single room and it took at least 30 seconds to stroll from one side of the room to the other end. My villa has an unobstructed view of the ocean which you just can't escape from. Everywhere you look seems to point towards the ocean. I already mentioned the in-villa infinity pool. It is exactly the kind of feature in the room that makes your heart leap to your throat and puts a smile on your face. You'd want to jump in it regardless whether you're wearing clothes! The pool will take you 5 strokes to go from one end to the other, but it's still a 1.2m pool nonetheless! Very high ceiling, 100% 5 star interior decor, modern and comfortable... State of the art light switches and TV and sound system -- better if there are more choices on video on demand and TV channels. But where's the remote control for the curtains? I know there's this cinderella thing with drawing open your curtains to a beautiful day facing the ocean... But come on -- the room is haaaauuuuge and the guest is lazy!
Bathroom... giant bathtub, shower with a rainshower and hand shower set... Acca Kappa toileteries... But where are the shavers?
Walk in wardrobe plus a vent directly above the railings -- will quickly dry all your wet bikinis!
No insects in the room even I opened the windows to my villa and I was out for the whole day... Remarkable considering this is built in the hill...
You don't have to break into the minibar for fresh water as they provide four bottles per day. (PS... Some tropical islands have no fresh water and so water from the tap can taste salty. Not with this hotel as I suspect the filter their tap water... The water from the shower is absolutely fresh and I think you can just drink from it... Of course if you have a troublesome stomach I won't recommend it...) Minibar is well-stocked, I won't use it though as every item is overpriced for what they are, but if you take the hotel's location into account then you have to appreciate the effort for the logistics...

"The location..."
Which takes me to the location... It's built on an exclusive lot on a vast slope of hill... Which also means you need a club car/buggy/golf kart whatever you call it to get absolutely anywhere. The merit is that when you call concierge, a buggy will normally be with you within 1 minute (pretty remarkable). And taking the buggy is an experience in itself. I live in the city so I don't normally get chauffeured everywhere, but having the option to be an absolute lazy bum is a great way to indulge as well. But you'll be sure I won't bring my children here as the steep slopes means if you don't hold on to your kid, you won't be flying them home... The hotel is also 45 minutes away from the airport and you won't be able to walk to the nearest town... So whenever you're in town don't forget to buy snacks, drinks or other amenities... Taking a taxi is a pain as well... A 15 mins drive can set you back a whopping THB750!

"What to do..."
Since the hotel is so secluded, privacy is umpteen so I guess it is best for people who want utter quietness and peace. People who just want to enjoy their anniversaries or for whatever celebrations will find it the perfect location as well. Within the resort there's not much to do apart from going to the gym, doing yoga, going to the spa, walking up and down the hill on concrete, beautifully paved pavements and going to the swimming pool. Of course couples will be loving the giant tub and the king size bed... And even the restaurants are all doubly seated. If you're coming here on your own out of spiteful regret of marrying/getting together with that man or that woman... don't! This is the perfect location for honey mooners or older couple celebrating their anniversaries... Your teenage kids will be cursing you for bringing them here, and your newborn would probably have flown out from the buggy before they even got to the villa... So...

"The service..."
Spot on. Service is impeccable -- every staff is on the balls, efficient, friendly and very willing and helpful. Very discreet. I really appreciate the lightning fast response from staff... considering the resort's vast size...

All in all...
I already said... the perfect location for anybody who wants to be as far away from reality as possible. It's the perfect concoction for a luxury resort. You have all the best of the best mods and cons for your room, both decoration and service wise with the added benefit of the most perfect backdrop -- the ocean. Best for couples as the rooms and the whole hotel is really built for them. If you need entertainment... this is perhaps not the best for you as it is so far away from everything.

Room Tip: Swimming pool on level one, restaurants and bar on level two, spa on level three, exit on the top f...
