Banana Fan Sea Resort
Ranked #3 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 25, 2012

The perfect resort i must say during our 4 nights stay. Called the resort 12hrs prior to arrival to request for airport transfers. Arrangement made through the phone was very quick and prompt by the resort receptionist
We were picked up by a van by the resort representatives at the airport upon arrival. The journey took us about 15mins. Upon reaching the resort, we are served with welcome drinks and cold towels at the lobby. Fill up a check in form, Wallaa!! Check-in completed in less than 10mins.
The resort location is less than 10mins walk to the central Chaweng where all the shoppings, restaurants and entertainments are located. We stayed in garden deluxe room 307. Everything in the room is great. Clean room, spacious bed, mini bars, cable tv channels etc.
The clear water and soft sand of Chaweang beach is just steps away from the resort.
Since it is our first time in Koh Samui, we rented a bike and booked the Angthong Marine Park tour from the Tour Desk counter. Received our bike right after the staff made some calls.
Every staff of the resort is very friendly and attentive. The resort management surprised my wife with a birthday cake and beautifully decorated our room while we are away. Awesome!!!
Breakfast is great as there is a great variety of spread to choose from. You can even request to have your breakfast .
Will definitely return to the same resort again. Thank you Banana Fan Sea Resort for the whole wonderful experience.

We put alot a research into to trying to find the perfect place for our 8 night holiday in Koh Samui and we hit the jackpot with Banana Fan Sea. We wanted to stay 4 nights at Chewang and 4 in Bohput. I started reading reviews about the different beaches, different sand at the beaches, locations of hotels in Chewang, WOW overload but glad I did because the beaches are just so different. Chewang is by far the best, sand is pure white, finest grain sand and crystal clear water where you can hand feed fish up the north end (10 minute walk from Banana Fan Sea), we loved feeding the fish each morning. The staff are just so warm and friendly, without being over the top and annoying, it just comes naturally to the wonderful staff here. The buffet breakfast was great, had everything and plus some that you would want with the massive bonus of beach front dining each morning surrounded by such lovely staff. We choose the beach from Villa (room 327 or 372), just perfect, especially as we had 2 small children and if my husband and son where at the beach I could sit on balcony whilst my daughter slept and watch them at the beach (or if both slept the massage area for hotel is just to right of room on beach) Room was huge with day bed, plenty of space for family with 2 children. Highly recommend spending the extra money if you can. What we would do to wake to the amazing view of the beach each day again. Room was cleaned to perfection each day. Only negative was pillows where like mountains. We also booked tours through hotel and the lady at the desk is also just so delightful and will go out of her way to help organise anything you want.
The location of Banana Fan Sea is perfect as the north end of the beach had music coming out of beach bars and laying on the beach peacefully wouldn't be an option, around Al's bar seemed younger/noiser but Banana Fan Sea was only a 5 walk but a peaceful lay on the beach was an option. You still walk out the door of the hotel and have all the same shops and restaurants to choose from as 5 minute walk up the road. Have never written a review on a hotel before but thought this hotel was more than worthy. We will be back.

Room Tip: Go the beach from Villa (327 or 372) if you can, so worth it.

Stayed with my 4 year old daughter as part of a wedding party. Even our room (cheapest in hotel) was huge and comfy and beautifully cleaned each day with orchids prettily placed on my daughters teddy bears. Staff were amazing, really friendly, learned our names and made massive efforts to be really kind and helpful and proactive. Great location just at end of a good shopping street but easy to get out of town.

I attended the Banana Fan Sea resort as part of a conference. The resort is ocated on the best part of Chaweng beach, which creates a beautiful, serene atmosphere. It is suitable for peopel with and without children. The staff are so welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. The baitong restaurant in the resort has the most beautiful food, well prepared and presented, and without a large price tag.

I felt very comfortable and relaxed at the resort, and Khun Supit, the manager runs a really tight ship without it feeling stressed. My visit to Banana Fansea resort was a wonderful relaxing experience.

This was a pleasant stay for my wife and I. Not as large or luxurious as we were expecting but in the end suited our needs. The staff were all very pleasant. The restaurant was nice and food was good. Very quiet relaxing atmosphere. Unlike some of the other hotel/resorts nearby.

We had a superior room and included a king size bed..ample storage..well stocked mini bar..air con that really worked well and a huge shower stall as well as a bath tub. The staff was faultless although some were difficult to understand. The service was excellent and the place was extremely clean. Breakfast was a full buffet with plenty tp choose from. Wonderful little touches like the frangipani flower on the pillow when the bed got turned down. The furthest room from the beach is about 150 metres. It is centrally located to shops restaurants and transport. Miss Pop, the hotel travel co-ordinator is extremely charming and efficient at organising excursions for the guests. The one downfall is the internet.It's pretty awful but there is an internet cafe some two doors away and that works fine at a very reasonable cost. We stayed for 19 nights and all up it cost us including return air fares with all taxes paid, $5400.00 from Brisbane. This place is great it is clean the service is great and the staff is friendly and polite. What more can you ask for???
