Stayed 2 nights in a Seafront Cottage, The sea view is beautiful, but to get to the beach itself you have to travel down many many steps, the other option to to call a club-car to take you to the beach/pool/restaurant (no charge). To be honest, this was surprising, but after staying at other resorts I found out this wasn't...

I don't think you can really beat this place. I have stayed at a few places around the island and comparing to them and to other resorts around the world this place has something some of the bigger chains could learn from. Despite some renovation work causing noise during our visit that initially caused us some concerns when told of...

Our second visit in 2 years for myself, my husband and son. We recommended Tongsai to our friends and they came too, to celebrate my 50th birthday and their 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Excellent staff, very nice, professional welcoming at the reception. Amazing buffet at the breakfast as well as impeccable choices of restaurants. Food is simply divine whichever restaurant you choose. Available gym with the perfect view. Beach is perfect with comfortable sun beds.

We stayed this resort at really end of our trip! and it was the best hotel we stayed in Thailand. Everything amazed me, the entrance, the lobby, waiting room, the service, smoking patio area got the view, large and clean dining space.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more   less
