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.

Back in the land of smiles and back at the beautiful Buri Rasa , Koh Phangan! There are 4 big resorts on this beautiful stretch of sand known as Thong Nai Pan Noi. I have stayed at and enjoyed all of them for different reasons. But simply put ..... Buri Rasa is the best of them and my favourite, first choice . First impressions count. From the transfer crew at the Pier and on the boats, to the reception staff. Professional , friendly , efficient. Taking care of Every detail. Every single staff member is happy with their work, regardless of where they work. Young , dynamic , energetic, friendly, engaging, absolutely fantastic with kids . It shows in their customer relations with the guests. The pride taken in their work. I very much feel spoilt when l come here and love being " looked after" . The rooms are beautiful , clean , cannot fault. Housekeepers do an outstanding job. Gardens and grounds are kept immaculate . So lush and green a credit to the gardeners and groundstaff. Beach Bar has a great vibe . Put your feet in the sand and enjoy a cocktail or 3. Good place to kick back , people watch, mingle , be soothed by the waves of do nothing . This is a very popular spot , with a lot of guests from the other resorts stopping by. Team here do an amazing job to keep everyone served with a drink . Restaurant has very tasty , beautifully presented food from breakfast , lunch and through to dinner . You can also get cocktails/ food poolside or loungers on the beach. Thankyou to the team . Resort also has its own bakery . All bread , cakes etc are made here . At the front of the bakery they have a place called "ln the Mix" serving coffee and cakes here . ( I miss the coconut pie already). Great job ! Or if eating pie and drinking cocktails is not your thing , there is kayaks and paddle boats you can use. There was a beach volleyball net set up , which l did see people using . Hotel can also organise tours , taxis if you need. There is also an onsite day spa. I had four amazing relaxation massages . ( My apologies to Chin for snoring each time whilst having my massage ). Free wifi through out resort. So in summary . Best staff , best location , best food , best ambience . Keep up the excellent work Buri Rasa. I can't wait to come back. Many Thanks xx Read less

We stayed at Buri Rasa hotel and we enjoyed very much from our stay. Our room was located on the beach with a great view and easy access to the sea. We also enjoyed the hotel facilities and the beach facilities (such as the spa, the pool, kayaks, sap and the bar). The great experience that we had is thanks to the amazing staff that had a good vibes and had a polite & considering attitude, their service was exceptional, we felt that they really want us to enjoy and they did that very naturally. We would like especially to mention Lin from the hotel's staff. During a journey you meet some people that will remain in your heart and in your mind excatly like Lin will remain. Lin was at the reception when we arrived to the hotel, she was very kind and provided us very useful information regarding the hotel facilities and its around. The highlight of our stay was when Lin scheduled for us a Thai language lesson which she teaches, and in addition she shared with us interesting facts about Thailand's amazing culture. Thank you very much Lin and the whole staff - you were amazing! Read less

This resort is special from the speed boat transfers, to the attentive and welcoming and helpful staff all the way up to the GM. Everyone is there to help. We had an excellent vacation here will definitely be coming back. Children activities were great and the water sports available was fun too. Very relaxed compared with other 5 star resorts we have stayed at where there's rules for everything. Here if you're safe they leave you alone to make your decisions. The bar staff were so good they went and got a screw driver so we could fix the children's toy. Love it. Well done Buri Rasa team. Read less
