My husband and I visited this lovely hotel twice on your Thailand holiday. First for two days before leaving for Koh Tao, and the second time, three days before going back home again. The first time our room was ready when we came. Greatly appreciated, having travelled very far, we were really tired and jet lagged. The room was really nice with everything that one might need. We were close to the beach area, and this beach is to die for. All sandy beach with turquoise water. The hotel has plenty of sun beds and the staff is really nice, lay down towels for you, bring drinks etc. If you're there get some chicken on sticks from a lady on the beach (they're really good and cost 40 THB). The beach bar is lovely. Great breakfast and very friendly staff, always smiling, asking about your day. When we left the first time, we already looked forward to our next stay.

The next stay was great too, but unfortunately this time, we had to wait three hours for our room. They were very sorry about this and offered all kinds of things. But we didn't want to go to the beach, as we were not wearing swimsuits, and not being able to cool off was not very pleasant. So we just waited. Our room was nice again, the same as before more or less. We spent most of our time in sun beds on the beach, relaxing and enjoying the sun (having just spent a week diving, we were tired). On our day of leaving, our flight was not until 21.50 pm, meaning that we would be picked up at 6.45 pm. Therefore we asked the day before if we could pay to keep the room until around 5 pm because checkout was at noon. This was not possible, but we were offered the opportunity to take a shower in the hotel spa. This way we could still enjoy the beach for one last day.

I definitely recommend this hotel for the awesome service, excellent breakfast (actually has good coffee which is a rarity in Thailand), nice rooms and the beach. To get an "excellent" review, the hotel would have to prohibit smoking on the beach. Lying quietly on a sun bed and then being awoken by disgusting smoke creeping into your nose is really gross.

Room Tip: Ask for a room nearest the beach, away from street noise.

In one word BURI RASA is perfect. In more than one word, the hotel is the most awesome hotel and all you dream about in island. This is my third time in Thailand, this time with a one year old baby and the staff of the hotel has made the experience unforgettable. Amazing team, double time clean rooms, great breakfast, and of course the best location on the island. A 7-minute walk from the busy area is the hotel so you can decide when enjoying the quiet and when you go out into the busy street. I will advise everyone to come to this hotel because I can not think of one thing that was not perfect.

Extremely kind employees; very clean and spacious rooms with a very tasteful fitting, equipped with a small kitchenette and a refigerator in our familiy-suite, which was cleaned twice a day!; loving and totally attentive, handwritten greetings from the cleaning staff every evening with small gifts and free bottled water; fantastic and rich breakfast buffet; small tasty and free snacks every lunchtime at the pool and the beach; very nice pool with good water quality; a dreamlike beach; sweet, with tropical plants lovingly planted and quiet resort, which helps you forget the stress of everyday life and relax deeply as you return from the noisy streets of Chaweng with its large selection of of shops, bars and restaurants. The Buri Rasa really offers a retreat within easy walking distance admidst the touristy, lively and noisy Chaweng. For those looking for relaxation,tranquility, best service and a personal touch, we can highly recommend this resort!!!

Thank you for finding us to be a small, quiet oasis on Chaweng Beach.

We like to treat our guests like family - glad you were able to feel our warm embrace.

Our housekeeping team is fantastic, and really go the extra steps to ensure a clean room and they love leaving little notes and gifts!

Our breakfast is quite special - I hope you were able to try the Thai Tea, truly addicting.

So glad you were able to relax on our beach and let your stress slip away... that is a sign of a great vacation.

Thank you for highly recommending us, and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Kind regards - David

This was our 10th stay at Buri Rasa. It keeps getting better!! It is magical and the location with easy access to the beach is first rate. Most impressive however are the staff. What a special group of people. They made us feel so welcome and special--perhaps because we are now well known--but we saw this same attitude to all guests. They are especially good with children so a great place for families. The food is excellent and we commend Kid and his staff for preparing enticing and healthy meals. The breakfast choices are first class. The manager, David, was also great and his engagement with guests very good. It is a great pity that he will soon move on.
We stayed for 20 days which is much longer than most guests.

We are honored to be your favorite boutique hotel! Thank you!

We appreciate your return visits more than you know. My team told me about the both of you before you arrived - they couldn't wait to see you again. So glad your visits keep getting better.

We have a perfect spot on the beach, with that large shade tree you enjoyed so much.

Our team loves to pamper our guests - whether it is their first visit or their tenth.

Nice insider's tip about being a family-friendly location. We always seem to have a healthy balance between couples and families.

Thank you for mentioning Chef Somkid - he is a wizard in the kitchen and produces delicious and consistent food every day.

We look forward to your next visit, and I'm sure our paths will cross again.

Kind regards - David
