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.

Very tropical location, a lot of trendy restaurants. Excellent food although a bit pricey. There’s a nice pool and outdoor shower. Incredible service. The staff there couldn't have done more to help us with insect bites.

We stopped for lunch and received excellent service from Som and her colleagues. We chose Thai dishes - chicken with cashew nuts and a seafood curry with ice cream for deserts. We liked the complimentary small drink, crackers and dips while waiting for our lunches to arrive plus the hot hand towel. Their special “reverse osmosis” water did taste good. A very pleasant couple of hours overlooking the bay and watching the planes come into land. We has a short tour of the resort from Moon, one of the butlers, which gave us a good idea about the rooms and the small beach with snack bar. The bill came to 1,965 Baht with the usual 7% tax and 10% service charge. Read less

I don’t often write reviews, but they helped me find this resort so I thought I’d share in order to steer others here. Online reviews are all relative - Five stars to one person may be different to another. But this is truly a five star resort. Very relaxing. Beautiful setting. Wonderful staff. It’s like a Four Seasons but less expensive.

We’ve just returned from 8 nights in this magnificent hotel and we’ve never been so sad to go home after a holiday! The hotel itself is stunning with incredible facilities given how small the hotel is (only 66 villas). State of the art gym, 2 unbelievable restaurants, spa, 2 bars, a giant swimming pool and a white sandy beach. The rooms however are the highlight with comfy beds, coffee machine with unlimited coffee (fresh delivery of almond and cows milk every morning!), fresh fruit delivery every day, outdoor shower, yoga mats, giant bath tub, pool, more towels than you can ever possibly need.. the list goes on.. The best part of this place is the service. We’ve never been to a resort where you are so valued and we were treated like royalty from start to finish. We will definitely return to this hotel and try out the other Six Senses resorts. Read less

We have just returned after a 11 night stay in an Ocean view villa with private pool at this magnificent resort. We've travelled widely and never had a better more satisfying experience. The location, on a headland of the island, practically built in the jungle - surrounded by well looked after local trees and gardens with birds and butterflies all about - was to die for!! The villa was peaceful and overlooked the ocean - modern, comfortable. We hardly saw an insect though insect repellant and beautiful nets over our comfortable bed was always there. During the day we meandered from our own villa pool - to the beach - to the hotel olympic size pool - the chairs and towels alway there. We loved the varied menu of the restaurants - staff always willing to accommodate our preferences - less chilli for example, on occasions. Every level of staff was there to ensure our stay was perfect. We even had our very own General Experience Manager!! We shall certainly be back next year. Read less
