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.

Excellent service very respectful staff , always willing to help go above & beyond to make us feel comfortable and happy. Will definitely go back. The only thing I recommend is a bit more variety to menus by the end of the 7 days got over the breakfast.

I have recently come back from a 13 night stay at the Amari Koh Samui hotel with my partner and it did not disappoint! We stayed in the Garden Wing, Room 5226 (Superior Room). The bed was so spacious (generally thought i'd lost my partner in the middle of the night the bed was so big!) and comfortable. We has a fully stocked mini bar, snacks, mosquito spray and aloe vera gel on our desk (you had to pay for this). The hotel provided you with four bottles of water for free everyday. Our room had two sets of robes, slippers, a beach bag and two umbrellas in case of rain, safe and a torch. The staff always helpful and polite! Two great sized pools (one beach side, one garden wing). The breakfast was fabulous, always something great to eat! We would definitely recommend this hotel and potentially come back here one year. Thank you Amari x Read less

We've been coming to the Amari on Chaweng beach since 2009, and this is at least our 10th visit ...... the service is excellent, the food in the hotel (and the attached Prego Italian Restaurant) is outstanding, and the rooms and facilities are good. We normally stay in the Garden Wing, which is across the road from the beach. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, with some renovation going on at present. Our room had not yet been renovated, and while a little tired, was perfectly acceptable. The breakfast buffet is incredible - Thai food (including breakfast noodles cooked to order), Chinese Congee with all the trimmings, DimSum, Indian breakfasts, omelettes cooked to order, baked beans and bacon, unbelievable fresh pastries and breads (the pain au chocolat is very good), fresh fruits, salads, cold meats, sushi ......... We normally have breakfast early, and then go for a 5+ mile walk on the beach, which is clean and safe. The hotel has two pools, and sunbeds and umbrellas at the pools and on the beach ..... well kept, and a good supply of towels. Lunch is usually at the pool bar, where there is a great selection of both Thai foods (the papaya salad is especially good) and also international dishes (try the salad NIcoise), cocktails, and draught Singha beer. There is a happy hour, with a good range of cocktails, wines, beers, and prosecco included. There are many outstanding restaurants close to the hotel, both on the main street and on the beach - see my other posts for restaurant reviews close to the hotel. The service is unbelievably friendly and professional. The staff at the beach bar and beach are efficient, and fun .... many thanks to Kwan, Pen, Jimy, K, Bow, Karn, and all the others who made this another memorable stay! Read less

Just spent 10 days at the Amari and found it one of the better hotels that I have stayed in. Service excellent position very good with lovely beach out front. Breakfast was also good with variety of fresh fruit and juices everyday. Would rate this hotel 9/10. The beach out front not quite as good as a lot of weed in water but pool facilities make up for it but a short stroll further down the beach the water improves. If you do decide to stay book a room on beach side with views worth the extra money Read less

We chanced upon Amari hotel and stayed for five nights, after a disappointment at our original hotel. We decided to go up and down Chaweng Beach to try and find a place that was both lovely and available. The Amari reception staff were very welcoming, explained the room types, quoted a price below online and showed us two rooms for us to decide between. Once checked in, they offered a complimentary shuttle to pick up our bags (a 30 minute round trip!) which was exceptional service and made our day. We had a gorgeous family room in the Thai village which meant we didn't have anyone above or below us. The room was really clean, spacious with a big bathroom. Breakfast has a lot of choice, something for everyone. They were about to start some construction on the pool deck and offered a much longer timing on happy hour to apologise, the construction started the day we left so we got to enjoy more of happy hour without the noise. Drinks and food from the bar were delicious and really quick service to our poolside seats. The hotel is right on the beach near lots of restaurants and more casual bars. I would definitely recommend and stay again. Their Italian restaurant, Prego, is really as good as they advertise Read less
