Banana Fan Sea is a very nice, clean hotel with friendly staff, a great pool, decent food and it's right on one of the cleanest most amazing beaches I've ever been on. A friendly man from Philippines even sang for us at dinner. The hotel is in a great location in Chewang. Overall, I had an amazing time and can't wait to get back!

We had a second wonderful and unforgetable stay at the Beach Villa. We jut feel coming back home, enjoying meeting back all staff ensuring our stay is as perfect as possible. As disabled, it is so motivating to be supported by all members of staff, at the restaurant, at the beach and pool, everywhere in the resort making someone the life easiest as possible. They are all outsanding and always ready to help. Then, Mrs Mas and Supit the General Manager are making sure everything runs smoothly and perfectly during the day. We were very impressed by their perseverance as well as by their special personal art to lead by example. They are everywhere, having a good word with every guests, helping staff when required and at the same time managing the hotel on a profitable and enjoyable way. In such an atmosphere you can only relax and enjoy a paradise way of life....not in a hotel but by friends.... We will be back soon.

Banana Fan Sea Resort exceeded our expectations.
There may have been a couple of small things in the room that could have been repaired/maintained better, but hey, this is Thailand! You could not fault the location, food, gardens, superb staff, service, friendliness, and the magnificent view.
The Manager, Supit has a high expectation of his staff, however in doing so he is not afraid to help his staff out also. We witnessed him being extremely polite to the hawkers & food vendors on the beach & also was helping the groundsmen gather & bag the washed up seaweed from the beach in front of the resort.
A truly delightful & relaxing stay & feel it was an investment into our wellbeing. Thank you Banana Fan Sea - you guys rock!

Room Tip: Garden Villas are the pick of the rooms although all the rooms are not far from the beach & pool

just spent an amazing 11 days at Banana Fan Sea, with 3 other families 17 people in total ! kids ages ranging from 11 to 21. We truly could not have asked for more in a resort and for our holiday. The resort was such a magical contrast to the busy main street right outside , the resort is an oasis of tropical gardens and tranquillity. I couldn't fault the resort or staff at all , our rooms were more than adequent , one small problem with the shower was fixed almost before I got back to room. The beautiful staff will be something we will remember forever, so kind and welcoming couldn't do enough, truly was a high light .
The resort position is perfect , straight out to the shops, and walking distant to the noisier night club end of town, If you are after the night life you can easily walk , catch a cab or walk on the beach.
We were all very sad to leave could of easily stayed on for another week, but hope to return one day.
Definitely highly recommend.

I have just returned from a 6 day stay at the resort. I can honestly say it was the best holiday ever. The position being so close to the beach was a beautiful experience for breakfast every morning. There was never a problem for any of the staff. The shopping was just outside the front of the resort in both directions. The pool was lovely and clean. Nothing was a problem with Koh one of the lifeguards at the pool. Buffet breakfast. BBQ buffet at night on the beach with entertainment. Out of this world. Polynesian dancers a pleasure to watch. The banana fan sea resort is a credit to the manager and staff. I will be going back. The gardens were a pleasure to walk through. The small things that happened were lovely. Every morning local flowers were layed out in a design of some sort. One morning a bee, a lovely message 'sunshine'. I could go on forever. So relaxing. Thanks again Surpit, Mas and staff of the Banana Fan Sea Resort.

My friend and I have just spent 6 beautiful days in Koh Samui at Banana Fan Sea Resort. What an amazing experience. The service - impeccable, the cleanliness- faultless, friendliness of staff - humbling, the food - amazing, the gardens - beautiful, the ambience - paradise, the view - to die for, the room - yes a little tired, but, we spent minimal time in our room so it was good enough, and anyway we were told that they are in the midst of refurbishing the rooms, the beds - a little hard, but the staff added toppers which made our beds super comforable. Nothing was a problem and minor issues were sorted within minutes. The location of the Resort is great, with shops, bars, and restaurants across the road, yet we were in the quieter end of Chaweng Beach and only 15 minutes from Airport. There is nothing we could fault with this Resort and we will come back again. Our heartfelt thanks to Surpit and Mas for doing such a wonderful job of managing Banana Fan Sea Resort and to all the staff who made our stay extra special. In our opinion it was the best all round Resort in Chaweng.

Room Tip: As the layout of this Resort is excellent, any room will be good. All rooms are close to reception...

Great location, beautiful beach, wonderful sevice & care and undoubtedly the best resort in Samui. Our short stay in Samui, was made fanastic because of our Stay in this wonderful place.
Though the villas are quite dated, but it is well maintained and very comfortable. The layout and placing of the furnitures are excellent. Bathroom is spacious and very clean. The Verandah in front of every Villas is a great place to sit and spend time. The gardens and all the Greenery are fantastically maintained and you get refreshed, everytime you take a walk.
The Pool is well laid out and very trendy , overlooking the Beach and the beautiful sea, alongwith the Restaurant & Bar. Their Service and care cannot be compared to any other place that we've stayed in our all Vacations till date. Each and every Staff members are not only courteous and prompt in their work, but too gracious and very helpful whether its day time or mid night or 04:00am early in the morning. They are the best in this Industry.
The Location of this Place is Ideal from all point of view. They are located on the best part of the South Chaweng Beach. and they will serve you the drinks and food right on the Beach.
We stayed in Villa #403, and we did not faced any Noise problem, nor we faced any Insect or Mosquitoes problem. Their aromatic insect repellent oil that they put in the Burner makes the surrounding more inviting and serene.
The Restaurant and the Bar is the great place to spend time,we found the rates are ok as compared to restaurants outside. Though, very limited options in the restaurant. They can have some more varities of Food in their Menu. Breakfast is Great, but it gest repetitive, unvaried, unchanging and routine. But the ambience in the morning during the breakfast time is great, and on clear days you can view miles of miles of crystal clear blue sea water and have your breakfast.
Few things, that I'd like to point out to the Management, First : kindly provide Flat / Slim TV's in the Room. Second : Change the Old Lock systems and provide atleast 2 nos. of key Card.
All the charming staff in the resort will make your kids busy with lots of activities and action and many different entertaining games. Our Stay was made more memorable and significantly notable because of these small but touching gesture from the entire Team of The Banana fan sea Resort. Lastly, one cannot forget the Heatr warming special care and notice from the General Manager Mr. Supit Choo-in, which makes you cherish this stay in your mind.

Room Tip: garden view villas in the middle of the resort
