To start, I wouldn’t usually write a review before completing a stay, however I’m going to make an exception for the Ritz-Carlton on Koh Samui. We entered Koh Samui in August, following the two week completion of the Phuket Sandbox. My favourite hotel anywhere in the world has for many years been The Tongsai Bay in Bophut on Koh Samui…...until now that is! The Ritz-Carlton is exceptional. I’ve no other words to better describe it. The grounds of the hotel are absolutely incredible, overlooking the ocean, with unrivalled views. We are staying in an Ultimate One Bedroom Pool Villa which really has to be seen to be believed. The outside of the villa includes a private infinity pool, a private ocean side eating/decking area and a sunbathing terrace. Nobody can see you, nobody can hear you. The interior of the villa is equally as incredible and my words just cannot do it justice. Pictures to follow. Usually I can find a fault somewhere, but here it’s just impossible! Wow. Service, Staff, Room, Amenities, Location, all 10/10.

I had booked my trip to several months in advance prior the outbreak in Bangkok and heavy restrictions entering the island, i had planned to postpone my trip which Ritz was happy to accommodate but after talking to Khun Norakamol - i was convinced to push forward despite the adversities. This was absolutely the right choice - the trip went amazingly smoothly and the hotel is very careful with covid everyone who enters must present vaccination certificate or have a test 72 hours prior - if not guests will be requested to quarantine. I had spoken to many staff and seems everyone had been vaccinated, and as they have employee housing it makes for a secure bubble. As for the stay i had a kind upgrade to the ultimate pool villa, and it was absolutely stunning, the views is fantastic, and the sunrise is right there for you to see every morning (i hope your a morning person). The property is massive good for walks, and if not there is a buggy that will come to you almost instantly. everything was so well organized. The breakfast is ala-carte buffet, and it had a great selection, and the pastry are particularly good, especially their croissant. On check out the team were all there to wish us farewell even Khun Norakamol - plus they had a farewell gift which was very kind. Everyone made the stay so special and i would like to thank them all a very memorable must visit hotel.

We stayed a week at the ritz Carlton in a ocean view pool villa. The room and view were AMAZING - hard to beat the view in Samui. The standout at the hotel was the extremely high quality food - maybe the best we’ve had any hotel in Thailand, especially the French pastries made daily. The staff were also lovely and very committed to providing good service, including quickly fixing a problem we raised in our room. Only downsides of the hotel are the size - it is HUGE and you need a buggy to get around. The open plan layout also meant it feel very very empty during covid, maybe because the gardens are not fully grown yet as it is a relatively new hotel. The beach area is also quite rocky - not quite the typical white sandy samui beach some people may be looking for - but they do have a jetty you can walk out in to the deeper ocean and jump from which was fun!
