Set within lush, tropical gardens, this luxurious sanctuary occupies a prime location overlooking one of Koh Samui’s most beautiful beaches. Capturing the laid back essence of living beside the sea, the infinity-edged swimming pool practically merges with the ocean and the beautifully appointed suites and villas give the impression of being open to the elements with sliding glass doors leading directly onto furnished terraces.

Very close from Big Buddha, Central Samui and Fisherman's village. Very friendly and helpful staff. Overall experience was good but i think breakfast could be much better. The beach is not that great for this hotel but everything else was good.

The resort is beautifully done and landscaped. Rooms are spacious and luxurious. The staff - is just tooo good. We were taken care of really well. Right from the housekeeping to the front desk. Everyone did so well in ensuring that we felt royal. A few names that stand out are sunny and Rita from the front desk, Pui from the breakfast area and definitely our housekeeper. We ate food at the crab shack once which was yummy. The desserts in the room service menu were surprisingly good too! While we were very very happy with our stay here, a few things that were slightly off are: A. The hotel doesn’t really have a beach as advertised or shown. B. The breakfast was really underwhelming. Though there was a lot of items but the same items were repeated. For example - the fruit section had the same three fruits everyday as against the kind of fruits available in Thailand in general like mango, rambutan, mangosteen. Also, We would have liked to see more variety in the Thai section. I’m sure that items such as banana pancakes or fritters would have fared better as breakfast compared to Green and red curry. These items too were not very good. The pastries also were underwhelming including the croissants. C. The hotel, though being on chaweng beach is far from everything including 7/11s and restaurants. It would have been good to have a local shuttle going. But that’s Ofcourse an added luxury. The hotel otherwise is beautiful and has so much potential in becoming a 7 star! We loved our stay here and will probably stay here again if we go back to Koh samui. Thanks team! Read less
