Buri Rasa Village Koh Phangan

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

Hidden amidst swaying palm trees, the Buri Rasa Village is a little slice of paradise. Overlooking a beautiful stretch of white beach and turquoise waters, accommodation is just a few steps from the beach, with plenty of rooms overlooking the ocean or the swimming pool. Talking of the ocean, it boasts some of the most famous snorkelling and scuba-diving sites in the world so don your wet suit and start exploring! Water sports, in fact, are very much the order of the day here but there are also hiking trails to discover and waterfalls to marvel at. Upon your return, take up residence by the pool and rest for what’s left of the day before heading to the resort’s al fresco restaurant. Combining local ingredients with modern techniques, it’s one of the longest established beach dining spots on Koh Phangan and a joy come sundown when you can feast on local and International delights under a starlit sky.

Wonderful staff, beautiful hotel, we came on our honeymoon and were treated like absolute royalty! Nothing was too much to ask, from a welcome committee on arrival, washing our feet for us and bringing us cool drinks, to nightly knocks on the door to say good night with home made sweets! The view from our room was incredible and I felt absolutely blissed out during our stay and so sad when it came to leaving! We had dinner in the restaurant on our first night, We had the bbq fish platter...the mackerel and snapper was cooked to perfection, the prawns were nice, but the squid was quite tough and chewy...my only criticism of an amazing stay!

The welcome received on arriving at this wonderful Hotel by the fantastic staff is second to none. They were like this throughout our stay right up until departure and could not have been more helpful. The pool is in a shaded area and cool so fantastic if getting overheated on the beach. The Beach is great, with free paddle boards and kayaks and whilst there is some sharp coral on rocks (minimal) to the right of the hotel, we observed the hotel staff removing these on a daily basis and putting them out to sea - that is certainly going the extra mile. Entering the water via the sand bar on the left is the best option. The breakfast selection is fine and the restaurant for lunch and dinner is good although there is a vast choice of local offerings as well as Italian and Mexican nearby- we experienced a few of these and were not disappointed - see the reviews on Tripadvisor as many are very well rated. Small Supermarkets also close by including Pharmacy. The rooms were great and mini bar drinks the same price as the local supermarket. Unusual and a nice touch. We had the speedboat departure to Koh Samui and highly recommended ahead of the ferry. When we visit this hotel in the future, we will certainly do this both ways. In summary, a great hotel at good value with the highest standard of staff - thank you to all for making our stay such a memorable experience. Read less

Our stay at Buri Rasa was wonderful and memorable. The staff were professional, very welcoming, helpful, informative and always with a smile. The room we stayed in was just right. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean and smelled of jasmine all time. I loved it. Wifi was consistent and convenient to connect anywhere in the resort. Breakfast buffet was well presented with a variety of dishes available and different everyday. The beach was clean and well taken care off. Pool was a welcome relief from the beach when needed. The surrounding flora around the resort provided a welcome relief from the sun. The Spa services were wonderful and was easy to book. Front desk staff were informative, friendly and welcoming. Just wonderful. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Buri Rasa Koh Phangan Read less
