Amenities include a world-class spa where trained therapists expertly combine ancient and contemporary cultural practices to revitalise mind, body and soul. As well as a relaxing massage, a coffee scrub by Illy Coffee is highly recommended! There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness centre or relax by the oceanfront swimming pool instead, topping up your tan. There are various dining options at Le Meridien, including in-villa barbeques and dinner on the beach. You can also dine under the stars on the resort’s unique 224-metre floating Ocean Pier or simply kick-back with a drink on bean bags and cushions. Latest Recipe is the resort’s signature restaurant with an exciting menu that blends East and West. There’s also Latitude 9 for delicious world cuisine. Every night, at precisely 19.19, join staff and fellow holidaymakers in releasing khom loys (bags of luck) into the air. A wonderful Feng Shui ritual, the purpose is to say thank you for the day just passed whilst looking forward to another day to come!

It’s sold as a beach resort but no beach and unswimmable sea. Really old hotel and totally lacking maintenance I think a hostel would be better. They offer a shuttle to a different beach which leaves at 11 and returns at 16.00 but why would you book a beach resort and then go to another beach just to lay on a towel with no shade or service??

One of managers offered to show a better room in same category even though we booked the best she said but if there are better rooms why give us a crappy one ? She then said we paid a cheap rate so if we paid more it would be better ( how stupid) think all rooms are crap and old but above all lack maintenance. Marriott should be ashamed would not come back if they paid us. How other people rate this hotel highly is beyond belief Read less

We wanted to love this stay. The creativity of the indoor/outdoor living in each unit was cool but totally impractical. The room where you sleep is closed off by a set of accordion doors. You have to leave that closed space to use the bathroom, sink or shower as each room has semi outdoor restrooms. Some layouts have no ceilings, some have no walls. This is cool to see but only works well if you are okay with swatting away mosquitos while you sit on the toilet or stepping on beetles while you shower. We opted for an upgraded room with a private plunge pool. We used is zero times as we were greeted by our roommate larry the cockroach who decided the boundaries of the pool were for him and his friends to take comfort at while they ate the bird poop that was piled up on the plunge pools steps. To make things worse, our A/C never functioned properly. It was humid and hot to the point of not being able to sleep. Imagine catching some sun at the pool. You’re sweating and want to go rinse off and relax and watch a movie. So you decide to go take a shower outside in the hot air with the beetles. You dry off and lay in the steamy room and turn the tv on but unfortunately, only the audio works because there’s no picture on the TV... Sound relaxing? If so then this is the place for you! I will say the restaurant and bar staff was amazing and always went above and beyond. Read less

We stayed at Le Meridien Koh Samui for 8 nights and from the moment we checked in the staff made us feel absolutely relaxed and welcome. The General Manager Pat was very friendly and always said hello to us with a big smile during our stay. This resort is just beautiful and right on the beach. We had a pool access room which was fantastic and super quiet. The breakfast at Latest Recipe was amazing and the coffee was excellent as well. The restaurant staff go over and above to look after you everyday and always remember your name and your coffee preference. We wanted to say a big thank you to Nuning, Bigky, Pla, Fai, Bash, Mai, Game & Arty. You were all amazing. Highly recommend staying at Le Meridien Koh Samui. Read less

I arrived yesterday at this wonderful hotel. Hotel send a car to airport and we enjoy a wonderful welcome at the hotel. Our room with pool access is outstanding. Room was decorated with fresh flowers. I enjoy the Happy Hour on their own pier with a amazing view over the beach by sunset. At evening don’t miss the celebration of the day! This was a unforgettable and magical surprise that I will never forget in my life. All staff members are super friendly and very helpful. This morning I was blow away by the huge breakfast where you really get everything what you can wish and enjoy the view over the main pool and beach under palm trees. I travel a lot in my life and see many high class hotels, but this hotel is for sure the best one I ever stayed. Big thanks from me to the wonderful Le Meridien Hotel Koh Samui, you make my stay here to an unforgettable time in my life. Read less
