After 2 nights in Bangkok, my husband & I got a flight via Bangkok Airways to Koh Samui. Were made very welcome on arrival & provided with hot towels & drinks. Our bungalow was clean & made pretty with flowers etc... placed on the 7ft bed. A burner was burning essential oils & there were beveridge facilities/stocked up mini fridge/computer with full access to internet/social network sites etc.. There were both indoor & outdoor showers & a fair size balcony. The hotel is located at the end of a dirt track & is great for unwinding on the lovely beach & gardens. There are restaurants & shops in the vicinity, however, we hired bikes for 200baht a day from the hotel & explored the whole island. You can get the bikes a bit further up the lane for 50baht cheaper. The breakfasts were amazing & on the first morning, the food just kept on coming. The staff were all very friendly & could not do enough for you. No "tip" appears to be expected. There was no pressure from shop owners to purchase their goods as in some other countries. Fantastic massages can be arranged for in front of the beach/your room/salon etc...The masseuses appear to be well trained with impeccable manners. There is lots to do on the island. Loved it!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms appear nice. Look on the internet for a half price "hot deal", as we would not have payed the full price after looking at other accomodation & seeing what else is available for the same money. You can book when you are in Thailand.

Unfortunately we read the reviews after booking so hope you read it before.
There is nothing good I can say about this place besides the location and the nice beach next to it.
Stayed in so called "deluxe bungalow" for a 'super low' rate of 50% off for 'just' 1500 Bhat, not including breakfast and no free Internet! If you need those you'll end up spend over 2,000 baht / night and this just if you get the promotion,Wow what a deal!
The mattress is in very bad condition and smell very terrible so couldn't get a sleep at all, the bathroom small and disgusting and even the water was smell very bad.
Customer service is far from being good and not a standard thai service, one of the receptionist is always on phone and not really friendly, she'll give you a 'hand stop sign' when entering office and continue speak a friendly conversation by phone before willing to help u.
I won't recommend anyone stay at this place, for a little bit extra $ you can stay in beautiful resorts nearby like 'Dara Samui' or 'Chaweng Regent' which will also include free Internet and breakfast and if you're on low budget you can find much cheaper places and in better condition.

There's quite a few bad reviews on here so I wanted to give a review of my experience of Island Resort and Spa.
We initially booked 2 nights in a standard room for £20 per night. It was really lovely but room was a bit dark. We upgraded to one of the bungalows for £30 per night. Bright, white, clean room with air con. Approx 50 metres from the sea. Bathroom not '5 star amazing', just standard shower but great for what we were paying! Room was cleaned thoroughly daily with clean towels left and bed made. The bed was very comfortable. Cable tv inc.
Reception very helpful. They even posted our postcards home for us.
Breakfast was a selection of breads, cereals, fruit, and whatever we wanted from the kitchen. It was 'all you can eat' style and was approx £5 each (which is cheaper than going to a cafe).
The pool was lovely and clean and great to cool off in. There is a shower next to the pool.
There's even a smaller pool for the little ones.
The bar does some cool cocktails with happy hour running until early eve. They did play a lot of The Eagles and Red Hot Chilli Peppers but this became the soundtrack to the holiday!
They have wifi that you have to pay for (can't remember how much but it was cheap) and they have internet in reception.
They also have safes in some rooms but they have lockers in reception for 20 baht every time you use it.
The Spa overlooks the beach and is quite basic offering about 10 different types of massages and pedicures and manicures. Massages start at approx £4 for AN HOUR!! It was lovely. The beds you lie on overlook the beach. The ladies are professional and very good.

Also, you're slap bang in the middle of Chaweng with everything you need on your doorstep.

My only issue with the holiday was how touristy the island was. I was imagining an island paradise full of tropical flowers and wild monkeys. In reality EVERYTHING that goes on on the Island is to serve the tourists and it can get tiresome.

In a nutshell... We had a great time on Koh Samui and this place was great to base ourselves from. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Get a bungalow - it's worth the few pounds extra.
