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.

We stayed here for 8 nights. The hotel is amazing, we were in Villa 30 with ocean view and private pool, it also has a outside day bed. The villa was immaculate and cleaned everyday inside and they even sweep the leaves and clean the pool daily. The breakfast was lovely, different options everyday. The hotel organises taxis got anywhere you want to go, we used it to the fisherman’s village regularly. Our GEM Joe was brilliant and organised breakfast in the villa and a cake for my birthday. The cocktail party at the sunset was brilliant and the free icecream everyday. There is mosquitoes but they do there best to keep them to a minimum. All the staff are very friendly. Read less

There is much to like about this resort. Beautifully architected property on lush grounds, focus on sustainabilty practices, service that caters to your every need, spacious villas with private pools, and excellent dining options. Every guest is assigned a Guest Experience Maker who makes sure that anything you could possibly want or need is managed. What keeps this resort at 4 rather than 5 stars are details that have been mentioned in previous reviews, they include: • Mosquitos and bugs.In a tropic area, you expect there to be some however I don't really expect to receive 25+ bites in a 5-star resort. Part of the issue is that the doors do not close without being bolted, and the cleaning staff leaves the doors ajar when they come in. At the happy hour reception, it was almost comical to see all the guests wildly swatting away as soon as the sun set and insects descended upon them. We burned incense and had multiple devices to keep the bugs away - to the extent that I had a difficult time breathing at times. When things get this bad, the hotel really needs to take more extensive measures to ensure comfort. • The resort is looking tired and could use some care - faded wood, overgrown vegetation, stained tiles, etc. • Water filtered on-site has a salty, unpleasant taste. The sparkling water is better. Overall we did enjoy our stay, we were just expecting a little more and feel that this resort could really shine with some TLC. Read less

We felt so welcomed from the moment we arrived at Six Senses. Our GEM (Guest Experience Maker) Zoe was incredibly helpful and the overall hospitality of all the other staff was so great! We loved our Ocean view Pool villa and enjoyed every minute we spend there. The sunset and sunrise at Six Senses is incredible. So good they have two sides where you can watch both. We had a wonderful sunrise from our villa and loved the breakfast by the pool. Also the main pool is huge and the view from the infinity pool unbelievable. The cold water they serve at the pool is a perfect refreshment and we both LOVED the free ice cream between 3 - 5 pm! Overall and unforgettable experience. Thanks Six Senses Koh Samui for making our dreams come true! Read less

We just finished a 5 day stay at Six Senses Samui and I left wanting many more days there. The property has a relaxing feeling with great views, well attended grounds and a staff ready to help. Our designated staff person was Faii. She was attendant to us, offering suggestions and ensuring we were getting the most out of our stay. Gary, the GM, was wonderful to talk to and personally led the sustainable garden tour. Our villa, with it's private pool, was fantastic. And dinner at Dining on the Rocks was a perfect way to end our stay. Thank you Six Senses. We will be back. Read less
