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 love eco-friendly concept, plastic free, organic farm. The villa number 3 has a good ocean view. We can see sun rise from our bed. We loved a comfy bed and pillows. The main pool is infinity pool that have a nice sun down view.

The beach is covered in trash. Considering this resort markets itself as high-end and eco-friendly, you would hope they at least clean the garbage from their beach. The beach is literally covered in garbage and has been for many days now.

Great room and service. Loved the many choices of daily activities. Catered to health and wellness seekers. Very private. Best spa experience compared to anywhere else around the world! Downside is limited activities on the island.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Excellent hotel with sea view

Stayed there two years back. It was amazing. We loved the oganic farm tour and unlimited icecream in the pool area. We also enjoyed the movie under star and the restaurant on the Rock. Once we get a chance, we will visit back again.

Overall is great. Stay in "Ocean view pool villa" Love welcome drink and welcome massage. You can sense the nature in this villa. The room is clean with no plastic. There is no outside shower for the villa pool. The villa ocean scenery is meh. Half of the view is others villa. There is a wood burr at the villa pool. However, the main and beach pools are clean with awesome scenery. Main pool is large and clean. There are different color at the main pool floor tiles. This place have a lot of activity to do e.g. yoga class, mocktail class, harvesting eggs and feed the goats. Breakfast is plain without variety of food. Complimentary ice cream is awful. The size of ice cream is smaller than a penny. Nice staff, especially GEM and villa host. Read less
