This review is late but this is still by far my favorite hotel to date. This truly was a 5-star experience. The hotel, the service, the pool, everything was fantastic. We rented a car so that we could freely leave and explore but it was really difficult to find when we arrived. A 45 minute trip from airport took us 3 hours in the dark. Long story short, we found it and everything was all right again. It isn't close to town activities but the view totally makes up for it.

Their breakfast was delicious and had a great selection of fresh juices and smoothies. We had breakfast very morning and only room service so we can't speak for the restaurants at night. However, room service was pretty good if you don't think about the prices.

We did a couples package at the spa that was so great that we went again at the end of the week. We also got massages at Elements next door since it was cheaper, but the view/ambience was much better at the Conrad.

We did a Thai cooking class that was so much fun! We didn't know it was private which was awesome. It was fun to see who's dish turned out better. Haha! We also wished we knew that we got to eat everything we cooked beforehand though. We had shared a green curry pizza (tasty!) poolside and couldn't finish our last course. It would have been nice to have a dessert for one of the courses instead of three savory dishes too. We made beef salad, pad Thai, and pork laab. We loved that we got to keep the Conrad aprons! If only we could have kept the hat :)

It was wet season but we got a few days of blue blue skies! Don't miss out of the boat ride to the beach! It was nice that staff always offered to take pictures of us before we even asked.

We stayed on the third row from the top. It was a short walk to breakfast, the pool, and spa but the carts were quick whenever we needed one. Sometimes it was pretty steep but it wasn't an issue for us. Our room was immaculate. We loved the bathroom amenities, the floor to ceiling views, and the private pool!!! Turndown service was a nice plus. We saw A LOT of ants outside our door one day but we never saw any inside the room.

Also, Green Talay down the street was delicious.

It was the beachy part of our two week honeymoon and it really was perfect. We couldn't recommend it more.

We stayed November 2012 not 2013.

All the staff are very good in helping in everyway. The view is just great and relaxing Love to stay here so much . But the location is a bit far from the city and the airport .which is the hard to travel outside the hotel.

With a 4-night stay in January, Conard Koh Samui gave us a fantastic experience in relaxing mood. Our villa was at the lowest row with stunning seaview and the 5 islands were just on top of our infinity pool. We were delighted to have coconut juice for the breakfast which made you felt great at the early of the day!
The resort had little problem on mosquito control. Upon request, they had provided small bottles of "Natural Insect Repellent" which was very effective to get rid of those annoying creatures.
We had 3 sessions in the Spa. The service was good but it lacked of details as compared to that of Banyan Tree. Anyway, we did enjoy and relax a lot.
Although the hotel is really far away from the city centre, it should not be a problem at all as you should have everything you wanted in the resort for having the wonderful vacation!

Everyday waking up to the scene of the 5 islands. Such an amazing view. I felt totally relaxed. The personal infinity pool with this view was altogether amazing. I enjoyed the yoga classes at poolside in the morning. The breakfasts and dinner at Azure were incredible. The carts were there to pick us up almost immediately. The staff was smiling and friendly. I felt very pampered. I am now addicted to the pillows. Like sleeping on a cloud. What a treat to stay at the Conrad Koh Samui!

We stayed in Villa 611 (2 bed villa in the Conrad Residences) for 3 nights in January 2014 with out 2.5 year old and 6 month old. The villa was outstanding and perfect for our requirements - living room/kitchen/garden and two decent sized bedrooms, great pool and view. We had advised the GM (Stefano) prior to arrival that my wife was gluten/dairy free - they had prepared a special menu for her in advance, and also arranged for gluten free bread at breakfast, and all of the staff seemed to be well briefed on what this meant, which was very impressive and put my wife's mind at ease. We also had some other requirements, which were all met with no issue. We had an in villa BBQ (international menu) one evening which was great, and Chef Konrad even came in to see us. This was our 3rd stay here, and best yet, we plan to return later this year.

Note: This stay was booked via Hilton points redemption.

Pros:
Stunning views, beautiful property
Private pools for every villa
Villas are all beautifully appointed with large bathrooms and huge bathtubs
Food in restaurants is good, breakfast is great.
Golf cart service is fast and easy to arrange
Incredibly friendly, engaging, and helpful staff

Cons:
Isolated, requiring a long car ride to any other interesting part of the island. Closest convenience store (for beers, soft drinks below mini-bar pricing) is 5 - 7 minutes away by car
Fauna often surprises you in your room. We enjoyed a gecko in a bathrobe and a very large huntsman spider (harmless) in the shower. This is typical for all of Samui.
Expensive, for Thailand. Combined with the isolation, this can be problematic
Constantly calling for golf carts, ice, etc can make you feel needy if you're a more self-sufficient traveler.

Tips:
Stop on your way to the resort at a mart and purchase beers or soft drinks for your room if you want to avoid the exorbitant mini-bar pricing.

Book the speed boat to the beach nearby early. It WILL fill up. Take everything you need when you go.

Bring sunscreen with you or prepare to pay a lot for it.

Request a villa with some privacy (that is to say, the view of your villa's pool is limited for those villas above you) if you plan to spend some intimate time with your travel companion(s) outside. Some villas have direct views of others, and some have complete privacy.

Try Jahn restaurant, even if you simply order a la carte and skip the big tasting menu. It's worth it.

Bring a bluetooth speaker for some outside tunes by your pool.

Bring high DEET bugspray for outside dining and late night poolside.

We (family of 3 with an adult child. This hotel is rather not for young kids) stayed at this property for 5 nights end of December 2013. Indeed I agree with many of the comments before. To summarize, it is a place to relax and not one to do much. We knew that and it was fine ! Service was very good and adequate for such a high-end place. As diamond members we did not have to pay for the third person in the bungalow which is an adequate bonus, I guess. Our bungalow was 218 which has an ideal location on the second level. Interestingly, the hotel map shows free space between 218 and 219) which is not true, this space is to the left of 219.
For the vouchers from the Hilton Thailand club, one for wine ( a bottle of Thai wine)and one for lunch (rather a snack) we got rather less than expected. The kitchen has probably still small teething problems (for example Thai dishes, Lab and others, are too sweet; a piece of meat is difficult to cut if served in a soup bowl, even if it looks nice; dried pork does not fit in the egg benedict even if it is Thai style). All these are luxury problems and the food, especially western (and Thai soup) are quite good. Very nice that there is no room-service-charge.
What I especially liked is the unique architecture of the place. When the stilts are more overgrown it will also look more beautiful. And the all-pool bungalows really work like they should. I know only of Sri Panwa as a comparable place, albeit on a less-steep hill.
A big bonus is the free boat to nearby islands. Although this was a bit hampered by the weather and by the missing hotel pier at the time we were there, it makes a huge difference !
We especially remember Mr. Simon (sorry I forgot the last name but it is Thailand anyway) as helpful and friendly but all employes were. Alltogether a rather unique place (the construction must have been very expensive), a good one to try out if you want a few quiet days.
