We went as a family of 3 with a toddler, stayed in a shared pool room and it was just beautiful. So clean with a mozzy net and the staff serviced our room daily. It was a fantastic resort with incredible staff..The food for breakfast lunch and dinner were delicious and staff were always very helpful and accommodating. Kate in particular had a great bond with our kiddo. The beach and poolside were peaceful and always clean, poolside towels provided. We had such a wonderful holiday and I'm truly going back to this hotel someday soon. Thank you for such a wonderful experience in H Koh Samui. I miss you Thailand. Cheweng, is 5 minutes can journey and is full of delicious restaurants our faves and must goes are Khow Glong, Baan ye Jaan, Phensiri and Galengal. Fantastic food. I can't fault our stay here.

This hotel is heaven on earth, I stayed here for my honeymoon and also celebrated my wife’s birthday. During the lead up to my stay I emailed the hotel to let them know of our occasion. They were responsive and very compensating, the prepared our room with flowers, roses and added a complementary champagne bottle which I didn’t even request. We booked the “plunge pool room” which was very romantic and fun for us, great spot for pictures also. The staff are the most kindest, sweetest and warmest staff you would ever meet. The staff always greeted us with a lovely smile and they would always to go an extra mile to make our stay great. We went to dine at the tree top resturant for my wife’s birthday which is such a romantic resturant with an amazing view (very little pricy to be honest). When we looked at the menu we did not see anything we wanted to eat as my wife wanted authenticThai food. We felt bad that we didn’t want to eat there but the staff were so compensating and was willing to order Thai food from the ocean kiss resturant to add to our selected dish. They did not make us feel awkward not wanting to eat there and arranged for us to dine at the ocean kiss resturant for Thai food. Honestly this hotel, staff, management deserve everything good. The hotel is worth every penny and more. The pool side is a lovely place to relax, drink cocktails and enjoy the beach. Lastly our check out was at 12pm but our pick up car was schedule for 3pm, we called reception for a complementary last check out. Our room was booked but the hotel gave us a free deluxe room free of charge until 3pm. I highly recommend this hotel, you would not regret it. Read less

This place was amazing. The staff was very kind and helpful. The food at only ocean kiss was incredible because of the quality and variety of food. The only negative was that the beach wasn't something you'd want to go into. Overall we were very satisfied with our experience.

Spent most days lounging by the large pool on the beach drinking excellent cocktails - It was perfect. Always a bed or lounger available. Always cleans towels on hand Excellent and friendly staff, the breakfast was impeccable and beautifully set up overlooking / on the beach The resort itself is super relaxing and makes you feel deeply chilled after staying here for a little while - We really did not want to leave You can't really walk to Chaweng town centre without sweating to death, too far and hot however thats the reason to stay here (get away and chill) - But you could easily get a songthaew or taxi to the hustle n bustle so not big deal at all. Rooms are a tiny little bit dated (odd bit of flaky paint in the shower etc and worn down wood in places), but thats only to be expected and shouldn't put anyone off. There are a few steps and little hills here and there so may not be ideal for people with extreme mobility issues but there is a super friendly, efficient and free buggy service to take you to your room or anywhere in the resort. Would definitely recommend this resort - Good job by all the staff who were always genuinely welcoming, friendly and on hand for any requests. Read less

This is a fantasic hotel. Wonderful rooms, great beach and pool, superb breakfast, wonderful spa and amazing staff. The service is brilliant. Great location- just 15 mins walk from Chaweng centre where there are lots of restaurants- which is good news because Anantara restaurants are very pricey.
