Six Senses Samui

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

When you arrive at the Six Senses Samui the view is at once exhilarating and strangely familiar. The sweeping vista of palm-clustered islands and shimmering seas brings to mind all the fantasies we have of the Orient's beaches. The resort is made up of a stunning collection of bamboo-clad villas looking out over the Gulf of Thailand. At Six Senses there are only villas, most with a private swimming pool with polished wooden floor interiors. Following the renovation, all villas are fully enclosed and air-conditioned so there are no "open-air spaces" as such and the bathroom and bedroom have a sliding door that separates them. The restaurants and bars are open pavilions, deriving their aesthetic from the communal longhouses of traditional river communities. The view, the architecture, the style and even the temperature intentionally immerse the guest in the location. This is back to nature – without a hint of roughing it. Six Senses Samui gives you everything, including a comprehensive spa that offers every conceivable treatment in Asia.

I had such a wonderful stay with Six Senses Samui! Being the first resort by the brand and a big fan of the Six Senses hospitality experience, I needed to check it out. Six Senses Samui is a stunning property built into the cliffside with views overlooking the Siam Gulf. The property is vast located over an entire peninsula with panoramic views. Their villas were recently renovated and immaculate many with their own private plunge pool. Since the resort is built on a peninsula, you can get your choice of sunrise or sunset view over the water (we had sunrise). The resort is a convenient 10 minutes from the airport and close to Big Buddha. They have two delicious restaurants onsite, my favourite was dining on the rocks. They have a delicious farm-to-table menu with ingredients right from the resort farm. You can also visit if you are not a hotel guest. The in-villa service is second to none. When you check in you are assigned a GEM who make the most wonderful experience for you. Ours was Summer and she was incredible - so warm and friendly :) I highly recommend staying with Six Senses when visiting the beautiful island of Koh Samui Read less

We have just returned from a weeks break at The Six Senses Samui resort at the northern tip of the Island. Words cannot really describe this property it has it all location, privacy, breathtaking views, personal service and 6 stars would be more fitting for this property. Our GEM was Sandy and what a true ambassador for Six Senses. Sandy ensured that she touched base with us everyday to make sure that we had everything we needed and to make any reservations or find out anything we needed - she was absolutely perfect and helped arrange our daughters 15th birthday at Dining On The Rocks. We visited the Spa and had a fantastic massage the service was very professional and highly recommended - thank you ladies. The pool villas are massive and ooze luxury - the outside showers were amazing. Cocktails at the bar amazing and the bar had a full complement of premium drinks - that would match any Mayfair Bar. We are at Dining on The Hill most days - a traditional Thai restaurant managed by the lovely Jan who was absolutely fantastic. Jan took a keen interest and would always make sure we were happy and would always even ask the chef to make something off menu like they did with a superb Thai fish one day. The food was outstanding and cooked the way you wanted. A very special thanks to NES, who would entertain us at the restaurant whilst serving our food, a true asset for Six Senses - thank you Nes we are still talking about you. The guys at the Infinity Pool were also the best, they made sure we had 4 loungers everyday kept us well fed and watered and even attended to my foot when I had a splinter in my foot - well done. Thank you Kum Peter (head of rooms) you listened and responded and took an interest everyday talking to guests and making a difference. Outstanding resort with some very special people who touched our hearts and made us feel so welcome - it’s not what they said but how they made us feel that we will take away and cherish - it’s a shame the GM Gary was away - but you have fine people working at this resort I hope you can give them the true recognition they deserve. Thank you Sandy, Jan, Nes, Spa ladies, Kum Peter - for your fantastic hospitality you truly touched our hearts, mind and spirit Bhatia family (Villa 15 and 20) Read less

We had been to this property as a family with a 7 year old girl and stayed 3 nights. All of us enjoyed our stay. Moon, our GEM, was superb and made sure all our requirements, however offbeat, were met to our satisfaction. Kriang, who drove us around the town, was an epitome of hospitality and local knowledge. The villas offer outstanding views of the bay during the day and in the night too when the silvery moon rays dance on the water. The resort is well equipped and great. Hospitality is top-notch. Where we thought the resort could do better is to improve facilities for children. The library, which doubles up for a playroom, can be improved with a little imagination. An outside play area could be added with say a tree house or something imaginative in keeping with the sustainability theme. The Farm on the Hill is interesting but doesn't hold children's interest for long. The resort is also not for senior citizens, as the villas have a few steps to navigate and access to the bathroom area is also down a flight of stairs. Read less

We enjoyed every second here, the view from the main pool and restaurant is just incredible but also from your private villa, if you have an ocean pool villa, is also just amazing. We stayed at the sunrise side and witnessed an magical sunrise by our private pool. A paradise to relax and have quality time with your loved one
