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.

Stay at the Amari since many years. One of the best hotels in Samui. Perfectly located, newly renovated. Outstanding lovely staff and excellent service. The restaurants offer delicious dishes and an outstanding breakfast! You come as guest and leave as friend! Great value for money! I highly recommend this hotel

We always stay Amari when we went to Phuket or Koh Samui. Great service, the staff always look after us, very nice and helpful. Good location, walking distance to restaurants and shopping area. If they can provide some daily fitness classes that will be great

The Amari Koh Samui is an excellent hotel with staff who cannot do enough to help. The hotel is separated by a main road with the majority of the rooms being on the non sea side, but this isn't a problem as the crossing is manned 24/7. The Delux Pool View Rooms are located in the Thai Village wing, and are around a second, much quieter pool than the main pool. The downside is that there is no bar here, but the staff will do service, or just go the the 7/11 and get your own items. The breakfast is delightful. Not over the top, but good quality food of different cuisines. Housekeeping are excellent and the rooms are cleaned to a high standard daily. Yes the main pool can be host to some noisy children, but aren't kids supposed to have fun on holiday??? As already mentioned, there is a second, much quieter pool available. The location is excellent. If you want to head down the main street of Chaweng for a night out (highly recommend the boxing) it's just a few minutes away, equally you can wander up the beach to some more local places to eat or watch the sun go down. The hotel spa is expensive, but no more so than all hotel spa's. You can get a massage on the beach outside the hotel for 10% of the price. The only reason I have marked this as a 4/5 is the beach. The beach here is not a swimming beach but still beautiful to look at. The reason I mention this is because I don't think that this is particularly clear on the website, and if you booked this hotel with a beach holiday in mind then you would probably be disappointed. Otherwise I can't fault Amari Koh Samui and will definitely be staying here again. Read less

Pools to warm not refreshing. Noisy aircon in room hard to sleep so loud! Lots of kids screaming in main pool very noisy not relaxing. You have to swim in pool because there is no water in beach tide goes out most of the day. You have to get taxi go to another part of island we went to Silver Beach was lovely!
