I traveled to Koh Samui with my husband for his 50th birthday. Resort was beautiful, modern and clean. Every room at the W Koh Samui has its own plunge pool which I loved, but wish it was a little cleaner and modern. The main pool was small but very clean.

I traveled to Koh Samui with my husband for his 50th birthday. Resort was beautiful, modern and clean. Every room at the W Koh Samui has its own plunge pool which I loved, but wish it was a little cleaner and modern. The main pool was small but very clean. Gym was a decent size with all the equipment needed for a nice workout. Service was excellent. A warm welcome from the staff upon arrival, along with our Welcome drink. Chocolate and popcorn was given every night during turndown service. Was surprised with a birthday cake and decorations in the room the day of my husbands actual birthday, it was very nice of the hotel staff, we were very much appreciated. I enjoyed my stay at the W Koh Samui Resort and will definitely recommend to all those looking to travel to Koh Samui, you will not regret it. Read less

We were upgraded to an oceanview villa. Sadly, this did not mean floor to ceiling windows that looked out at the ocean but rather a slice of ocean view when you went outside and squinted straight ahead.

We were upgraded to an oceanview villa. Sadly, this did not mean floor to ceiling windows that looked out at the ocean but rather a slice of ocean view when you went outside and squinted straight ahead. Bit of a disappointment compared to other (similarly priced) offerings in Koh Samui which offered full on ocean views from every vantage point. Everything else was excellent - service was uniformly pleasant, staff were always cheerful and happy to help, breakfast was great with huge variety and housekeeping were thorough and discreet. Not sure I would stay again - the W is one of the priciest options on the island and while the service was excellent its hard to justify the price tag when you could get much more impressive views at other hotels for the same price or less (e.g. Conrad, Vana Belle).

We had just come from staying at another W, and this one was on our list to stay at in Ko Samui, but decided on staying elsewhere. First impression is that you are a long way from anywhere, once you get here you aren’t just going to walk into town. We just came for a drink and have a look. The view is spectacular, the foyer building is nice,… Read more
We had just come from staying at another W, and this one was on our list to stay at in Ko Samui, but decided on staying elsewhere. First impression is that you are a long way from anywhere, once you get here you aren’t just going to walk into town. We just came for a drink and have a look. The view is spectacular, the foyer building is nice, but you don’t get a sense if where anything is. The bar area is impressive, with a great outlook, the music is way too loud and no where to escape it. If you look closely it’s looking a bit tired around the edges. And lastly, too many interactions with the staff, it didn’t seem possible to just enjoy a drink with the two of us, someone else was always there. Read less
