The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel room was very one of the nicest I have stayed in anywhere in the world. It had a really nice balcony and an open plan bathroom. The location is good on a quieter beach but only a short trip to busier bars and restaurants.

Clean room with full amenities. Relaxing atmosphere. Love the swimming pool overlooking the sea! Breakfast buffet needs some improvements though. Less selection compared to other hotels in the area. The restaurant was so busy in the morning we couldnt find a table. The waiters and waitresses were talking to each other loudly. Some of them stood there doing nothing while a little boy was trying to ask for a glass. Not up to standard service, I would say.

Also visited the W and while that is just an unbelievable experience, getting the Oceanfront Pool Villa is close to the poor man's version (about $250 plus taxes and fees on Agoda) which is a steal. For this you get a room with a spectacular view, a sun deck, private infinity pool and a private living room/library. I felt like a lottery winner.

Arriving late one night (that's a whole other story - do NOT try to bring a rental car on the ferry; was forced to leave it behind at ferry parking lot in Dong Sak), decided to order room service. They get points for letting me order at nearly 11pm, but I foolishly ordered Western food (was tired on a week of Thai). Ordered "Rack of Lump", which was the lamb I expected, but was so dry, tough, and indelible that the previous name was correct. Looked lovely but, but my shoes would have been tastier and more edible.

The people there are sweet and helpful, so I didn't make an issue of it. Enjoy!

Room Tip: The jacuzzi rooms are even cheaper (like $99), but worth a splurge to the Pool Villa. DO NOT atte...

Best service I've received in a long while. Right on the beach with fantastic rooms and lovely views. The views from the restaurant and pool are to die for. Great restaurants just on the beach but the food in the hotel is great too.

Room Tip: Villas on the sea front look amazing but out of my price range. Villas arranged in three rows. Front...

The room is lovely and the pool is nice as well, but the flaws of the hotel are: you are on a busy road if you get a room on the back row ( then you can hear the cars)
And the drains stank really badly! As well as the water pressure was terrible, so it was hard to flush the toilet and use the bath and shower.
The breakfast has a nice variety and the staff wet really kind :) the pool is chilled so it's a nice cool down and the hotel provides a rental motorbike place with old, sucky motorbikes ( the ones we were given anyway) and they gave us broken helmets. Apart from all that, it was a somewhat pleasant stay :)

The Sarann is a very beautiful resort on Ko Samui. It is located near to the Chaweng Noi beach, but unfortunately it has no own beach. So if you want to get a chair on the beach you need to make a deal with one of the beach boys from the other hotels.

The service personelle is very kind and helpful. The restaurant has very good food and the prices are - compared to Thai standards - high.

The only things that were not pleasant, were the very bad WLAN signal and the shower.
