“a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

spent 3 nights at this property. It has been a lovely experience. From the beginning. They couldn't give us the room as early check in. hence, treated us to free drinks and cocktails. The property is quaint, very clean and very stylish. We had a family room, overlooking the 2nd pool. the sit out balcony is cute. the cleanliness, design etc took our hearts. Food is very good though choice is limited. very near to the chaweng market and hence accessible to the best food and shopping. the staff is very courteous and always smiling. the beach dinner, though triffle costly, is very good. I loved it so did my family. will come back there.

Room Tip: if travelling with family, choose the family room, the are very cute and is very good value for mone...

we booked this hotel because we wanted to be near main busy part koh samui but also we would be able to escape the noise aswell .our apartment was across the road from the main bar area, it had its own pool, spa & gym facilities .
The room was excellent , superbly cleaned everyday , bed was very large and the best hotel bed i have ever slept in.
breakfast was included in our package, food amazing only small critism was getting hold of the tea , servers were always very busy.
overall excellent stay will visit again.

Room Tip: superior room ground floor near spa

We stayed on the beach side of the hotel for 5 nights. We arrived 2 days after the rest of our group of friends as we had stopped off in Bangkok.

On first impression I thought our room on the second floor was fine, handy for the bar, restaurant and beach but it had a tiny shower room. However it was noisy, slamming doors, some traffic noise too but the roar of the air conditioning helped to drown that out. When I saw the large accommodation our friends had on the other side of the road I was quite envious.

On our third night we were awoken at 3 am by a loud thump followed by frantic flapping and scratching right above our heads. We both literally shot up out of bed and stood terrified on the other the side of the room with hearts pounding. After putting the lights on and searching the room we couldn't find anything but there is a foot wide ledge which runs around the ceiling for the lighting so we couldn't see above that. My husband stood on the bed and held up his phone and took a video, no animals but the big holes into the roof space worried us!!

After seeing dried vampire bats in boxes in Cheweng shops we spent a fitful night and heard more scratching and weird flapping. In the morning we reported what had occurred and reception sent someone to check the roof space within 15 minutes. Later I asked what they had found and they replied: 'Nothing, perhaps it was a rat or a cat, maybe a lizard'. Lizards with wings are called dragons aren't they???

We were not offered a room change but I guess we should have insisted on a move. We only had 2 more days before moving to another hotel so braved it out. Overall we liked the hotel, food and drinks but would definitely ask for the rooms like our friends had!!

Room Tip: Go for the other side of the road - some plane noise but better rooms with big bathrooms and vaulted...

Dear Mrs.Coulter,

Many thanks for your feedback following your recent stay with us. I'm sorry to hear about your night-time experience, it sounds like it was a harrowing time!

I checked this with my team and found that they had the maintenence men inspect the roof cavity area, and even set some traps but nothing was found. If I may hazard a guess, it sounds like a small bird may have gotten through the wooden louvres and been trapped for a little while before escaping. My apologies that an alternate room was not offered.

I'm glad to hear that overall you and your friends enjoyed your stay, and if you visit us again we will be happy to have you stay in a dragon-free room :)

Best wishes from Samui,

Martin Kunzmann

Amazing resort, we stayed here for 10 nights in late Nov to Early Dec in 2012 and had the most amazing time. The rooms were very nice and clean and spacious, the breakfast was very good with a great deal of variety and set you up very nicely for the day. The location of the Amari is perfect within walking distance of the main strip but far enough away to not be disturbed. I would love to go back one day

fabulous hotel for a wonderful honeymoon. This hotel is situated near the end of the beach so if you are looking for a quiet peaceful time or looking for pubs and clubs you have access to both. The hotel is split in two with reception and restaurants with some accommodation on the beach side and on the other side of the road there is accommodation and a quieter swimming pool. The split made no difference at all, there are people assisting with crossing the road 24 hours a day. The breakfast was very nice with many options. The bar was good and happy hour is a must to get through the cocktail list. Staff were very helpful and very friendly.

Room Tip: rooms across the road from the main reception area seems to be quieter.

After an initial blip which was soon resolved we had a really enjoyable stay here. We were initially allocated a room on the sea side of the road but the room was small and the balcony had a non existent view!! We were moved across the road to a much bigger and brighter room. The road really is no issue at all so dont let it put you off. Wonderful breakfast and the beach buffet was impressive too. A short walk into chaweng where there is an abundance of bars and restaurants. The same can be found when you stroll down the beach. All in all a fantastic experience and would definitely return.
