This very high class resort was opened less than 2 weeks ago but it works as it was operating since forever. Everything is perfect, check in, concierge,villas, decor, maintenance, pool attendance and, in particular, restaurants.

It's a relatively small place, around 80 rooms. They are called villas even if one building can accommodate 6 or more, but from the inside they are really very private, no noises whatsoever, only the sound of nature, waves and birds.

Our villa is very big with a private pool on the balcony (all villa have private pool) overlooking the sea. Huge and comfortable bed, good working area, sofa, armchairs and sunbeds by the pool. The bath tub (quite large) has it's own entrance to the balcony. Delicious Lavazza coffee machine, efficient lighting system , soft bed sheets and towels make a huge difference.

Decor is stylish, contemporary, non intrusive, in a word very elegant.

The beach is Chawaeng Noi, probably the best in Samui, due to the fact that it's access is not very public, it looks like a private beach. Sand is golden and water is clean. The common pool is located right on the beach where there's a lot of space for all sorts of activities, it's quite safe for children too.

The gym is not big but it's perfect, good machines and service nearby the Spa.

Restaurants are really good. The breakfast restaurant itself has a club feeling, perfect elevated location and view, attentive service and excellent food, mixed a la carte and buffet. The buffet area is elegant and not too loaded with food, good high quality selection. Mr Dario, the italian master chef from Genoa, is there every day to graciously welcome and advise his guests. This personal touch I found really special.

Service is impeccable everywhere and for everything, the Vana Belle deserves a special place in Samui, it makes it worth visit it.

After the hotel is open for 5 days it sure has a lot to do, but what we experienced so far is pure luxury. Welcomed by the Front Office Manager, we were shown the great area with view over the ocean. After a smooth check in, we were escorted to our Deluxe Suite. Traditional tea was handed to us and the room features explained.
Not only did we have our own and private pool overlooking the ocean, but had the room everything to offer that you wish for at a 5 star hotel.
Dinner at Panali and Kiree were both excellent. Language of staff needs to be improved though.
THE spot of coming back to Thailand and the island of course!!

Room tip: book Deluxe or Grand Deluxe Suite, you will not regret the view and the beautiful sunrise

My Wife and I went without high expectation given it was opened only 1 week before our visit. It turned out much better. Car pick up was great-with suggestions on places to go to. Staff were informative , helpful and friendly. Front desk did an upgrade and very considerate for the late checkout because of the late flight. The Thai restaurant is a Must-have esp. the breakfast and dinner - high quality and wide selection with a wonderful ocean view. Spa was great. Certainly the first choice for couples who want a romantic vacation. I can spend all day in the hotel and the beach just outside. While it does cost more, it is certainly a great luxury holiday to have ;-)

What to say , one of the best hotels I ever stay! We arrived the first day it opened so on the entrance was more than 30 people to welcome us, wow!! The check in in the room was very personal.
Service was generally very good! And even u believe that because first would see many mistakes it didnt happen !
The rooms are just wow! All with private swimming pool, new, nothing more to ask , even a nice small present every evening with the turn down service !
Food was great! Breakfast and dinner. They have two restaurants both good level and great views!
Generally I wish could stay more there but I'm sure I'll visit it again ! Thank u to all the staff there, they are very friendly and looks like the training from management worked good! And to the Italian f & b of course!!
