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.

My wife and I spent 10 days on this magnificent beach of “tong nai pan noi” The hotel facilities are amazing! Rooms are spacious and really comfortable. Literally our feet in the sand! Most beautiful sunrise I experienced anywhere. The restaurant opened all day, outstanding breakfast buffet, super fresh juices, very good thai food, delicious cocktails all served with a smile! The staff is very attentive and friendly. Always making sure we are fine, organising boat and taxi trips, telling us where to go trecking around, etc.... We really had a unforgettable time! I strongly recommend this very special place for anyone who wants a real holiday to remember. Read less

We have just returned From Thailand, as you can imagine a very stressful experience with canceled flights and wondering if you can still return home, also with shops and massage parlors closing all over Thailand.

We have just returned From Thailand, as you can imagine a very stressful experience with canceled flights and wondering if you can still return home, also with shops and massage parlors closing all over Thailand. We were very lucky to stay at the Buri Rasa village towards the end of our holiday. With everything going on, the hotel staff made our stay very enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was very clean and tidy with lovely food and fantastic scenery, we used the speed boat to return to Ko Samui which was a lovely experience, and being waved off on the beach by some of the staff. I wish the Hotel good luck during these difficult times and hope to return next year. Read less

we stayed at the buri rasa in early march, having visited in 2016 and loving it. Our stay this time was every bit as good, the staff, food, service and everything was excellent and we will definitely be coming back again. a special thanks to the guys on the beach who looked after us brilliantly all week.

We stayed here in March 2020 splitting 4 days here and 4 on koh samui at the outrigger - hence the 3 star rating. We had the comparison of both hotels and this hotel was lovely but couldn’t compete with the outrigger. The food here was just ok and the staff were inconsistent sometimes friendly other times completely blanked you. The one member of staff who was lovely was the lady who ran the bookings for the spa she was always happy, friendly and made us feel at ease. We paid extra for a beach front villa and this allowed easy access to both the pool and beach, both were lovely. The prices of food and drink were reasonable to compete with the restaurants nearby but the food was not that great and I’d definitely recommend going out to eat. The hotel next door - Anantara has an amazing Japanese restaurant which we loved (see photos) and we would actually stay here next time we visit over the Buri Rasa. Overall, a nice hotel, great location but you can get better for the money we paid. Read less
