Stayed for about 4 days in December. Overall a great place. Debated in my head whether to give 5 stars or 4, but settled on it being worth of 5.
What I liked about this hotel:
- Location is great. It's close enough to the main party area of Koh Samui at night (call in a 5 minute walk) that it's very accessible, but just far enough away that you're far from the noise when you ultimately want to retreat into quiet. Also close to some beach front night spots, and restaurants / convenience stores are real close by as well. It's also pretty close to the airport.
- Rooms are beautiful with a big bed, and great view. High standard. Very clean except I did notice that when I accidentally left some bread crumbs on the floor overnight, the ants were out in full force the next morning (note to self, don't leave food on the floor!). This was more my fault than the hotel's,
- Staff was very friendly. I remember the first day I arrived I went into town with some people and came back at 4:00 a.m. in not the best shape in the world and they helped me find my room.
Really the only cons are the hotel complex is huge, and my unit was at the very rear out back. Was a gorgeous view, but a long walk to get to. Only other thing is the pool area seemed a little vanilla, and quite a few beach vendors (which of course will be an issue for all the hotels along that strip).
Overall, highly recommend this hotel.
