Amari Koh Samui

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

Set on the northern end of Samui’s stunning Chaweng Beach, the Amari Koh Samui is a laid-back and elegant resort offering a great range of accommodation for couples and families with traditional Thai-style buildings, set beside the ocean or within beautiful tropical gardens. Water sports are offered in abundance including an in-house dive centre for those eager to explore beneath the waves. Alternatively, relax beside one of two magnificent swimming pools, one facing the sea, the other in the heart of the Thai village. The children have their own pool to splash about in whilst parents chill in the Jacuzzi. Keep up your fitness routine in the gym, fully-equipped with exercise equipment or treat yourself to a pampering massage at Breeze, the quintessential spa experience. Amari’s signature all-day restaurant serves Asian and International dishes with a healthy side of sublime sea views. There’s also Prego for gourmet food with an Italian twist and Amaya Bar sunset cocktails.

Stayed here from 12/03/2020 Absolutely lovely hotel. Hotel staff are so friendly and courteous. Nothing to complain about from us. We loved walking out along the beach daily. Happy hour prices were great. Such a shame they just couldn’t offer those prices all day then they would keep the guests from going out in the evenings.

Having stayed at Amari many times over the past 16 years, it was great to spend time staying there again this and last month. Amari Koh Samui is extremely central. It offers a great location right on a beach with soft, white sand, and it's a short walk to many beach restaurants & bars, and shops/massage shops/restaurants along the street. Hotel airport transfers are very good value and taxis can always be arranged quickly by the hotel in moments too. Check in/out was very efficient and the hotel is literally five minutes drive from the airport, which is always a delight after a long international flight or two. The resort offers good value, especially with their spa promotions and happy hours offered by the pool multiple times per day. The gym is good, and the breakfast offers lots of choice. The room I had was a family duplex, and like the pool view rooms, offered a nice pool view setting in the Thai village area of the resort. Everything worked well and the housekeeping did a fantastic job. Those with kids would appreciate the resort has two large pools, and a kids playroom with air-conditioning. Prego Restaurant is a highlight at Amari Samui, offering consistently good Italian food and the most amazing, consistent service. Whether you feel like a good coffee in the morning, or even a take away, or delicious pizza/pasta for lunch or dinner, or a pre dinner drink and snack at the bar, it's always fast, delicious and good value. Within a short walk, The Tent at Sala Chaweng next door, or The Library further along the same beach, were favourites. I'd absolutely stay here again/recommend Amari, for those after a good value, beachfront hotel that's really central on Koh Samui. All of the team were especially friendly and helpful and you instantly feel relaxed - seeing the sea on check in and continuing from there! Read less

stayed at this hotel for 11nights, and it was excellent! great location near to everything you would want but far enough for peace and quiet. stayed in the village side and it is so peaceful' as a pool which isn't as busy as the beach side pool not that it was so busy there!! the rooms are spotless and have all you will need, the buffet breakfast is very good and also what you would need. the beach is so beautiful and the sand so soft' we used the massage on the beach next to the hotel and it was excellent £7.50 for a hour massage. the grounds of the hotel are kept in excellent condition by the hard working gardeners! the trips you can book through the hotel are all at a very reasonable price' we did 3 and enjoyed them all. would recommend this hotel and return at a heart beat.
