In a great location (south of Chaweng beach), 30 BHT far from the crowdy and full of surprises center our front beach bungalow and its terrace made us dream with eyes open.
It is a quiet resort with with no pool but a beautiful tropical garden and basins with exotic fishes. For us missing pool made the garden so enjoyable.
Serving breakfast on our sea terrace makes us feel great and the teastfull meals were provided all times during the staing.
Very good cleaning services, very good kitchen … if the personel don’t understand you ask Mrs. Bow – the manager.
Accomodation Tip: book/ask for room no. 1 or no. 2.
Meal tip: ask for a fish plateau.
Simply, I don't have minuses.

Staff very good, location is good - it's right on the beach at the quieter end of Chewang, however it's a good 15 - 20 minute walk to the centre.
The rooms were good however we had a problem with the AC (was a bit noisy and started leaking one night).
They do provide beach towels which is nice touch.

We would stay there again - we would recommend the resort for people looking for a quiter beach holiday.

Depending on your needs, Sans Souci is superb if you want to relax on the Beach. The Staff are wonderfully helpful, if you want anything. You do however have to understand the Thai on site. They will not approach you, as they want you to enjoy your vacation. If you want service, just ask them.
Thank you Sans Souci Team.

San Souci enjoys an ideal Chaweng Beach location and well furnished rooms, but we experienced strikingly hostile service during our 2-day stay.

San Souci's location on the quiet southern end of Chaweng Beach was wonderful for swimming in clear, clean water and strolling in soft, white sand. We walked 10-15 minutes up the beach for dinner each night. After reading other reviews we were anticipating Chaweng Beach to be a crowded and chaotic place jammed with loutish teens and aggressive peddlers. But we found the beach itself rather peaceful (even deserted) when we were there. We managed to avoid Chaweng's rather depressing front street almost entirely. We found the restaurants of Chaweng rather bland and institutional, especially compared to the extraordinary food and atmosphere we found on Samui's Bophut Fisherman Village.

The San Souci resort is nicely landscaped and our standard room was a small, comfortable bungalow with surprisingly upscale furniture.

The western breakfast was generous and tasteful.

However we found San Souci's service shockingly poor by the high standards of Thailand. One of the staff angrily snarled at us when we asked questions about taxi options, and belittled my companion when we could not understand the breakfast system and asked for clarification. We were a bit intimidated.

Despite the frighteningly bad service, San Souci was a good value for money at the time we booked it. The absence of a pool seems to drop the room rates relative to nearby options (but we were content to swim in the ocean).

We have just returned from 2 great weeks on samui.We started our holiday @ the Sans Souci before going around the island on scooters and enjoyed it so much so we returned to wind down before coming home.The hotel is in the Thai style of teak wood bungalows on the beach side and if you book the largest one it opens right onto the beach and breakfast is served on your own porch.Bow the manager is a lovely,very helpful young lady and a credit to the hotel nothing too much trouble,although the hotel as a small garden they serve wonderful food(the prawns in garlic and pepper was the best i had anywhere on samui.)We made our booking through Samuiwave.com we arranged for them to pick us up at the airport and take us to the hotel,they dropped us off and left before we checked in. It was then that we found out that our booking had not been confirmed with the hotel .Bow the manager took up are case with samuiwave and though they never came to solve the problem Bow the manager helped in anyway she could ( so i would recommend you book direct) and when we returned to the hotel before heading home she made us feel so welcome for our last 2 nights and arranged our lift back to the airport at a fraction of what we paid with samuiwave
In short great place,great location, great staff, great food, Lovely Bow .....
