W koh samui is definitely worthy of all praise! I'll try to skip emotions (which are all wow and superb) and give some practically useful comments. First, location of W is great and offers scenic view to the bay, awesome greenery and at the same time it's only 2km away from Fisherman Village (BTW, hotel provided free shuttle to there... More

I have stayed here numerous times. I lived on this island for 2 years and used the W as a base for all liasions and meetings. It is always booked up and has a premium price.

I visited the W retreat whilst on my hens day. We sipped amazing cocktails and the view is to die for! If you want a romantic night out, this is def a good spot to park for the night! The prices are on the higher end, but what you expect at a 5 star resort. The decor and furnishings are... More

This is by far my best hotel stay ever! It's a very prime location on the island of Koh Samui. Very impressive sceneries of small islands away from the beach of the hotel. Sandy beaches, exotic gardens, very spread villas across a huge territory. Very pleasant and charming staff, great food, great amenities, WoW villas.. you can never ask for... More

Having stayed at several W's I had to check this one out. It doesn't disappoint. If you are a W fan you will find all the usual details, cool bars, appealing restaurants, elegant lounges. The bar tender could see we were taking an interest in the cocktails so engaged in some recipe sharing. It's a little remote from the Fishermans... More

The lounge at W Retreat Koh Samui has incredible views, an impressive infinity pool and a stylish design. The sky colors at sunset can be amazing, followed by a nice evening of chilled music...a really wonderful spot to hang out and enjoy beautiful Koh Samui.

We went for dinner in the floating place. The ambience and closeness to water was exotic! The floating seating arrangement feels very good! Limited choice for vegetarians. It was a bit dark after sun-set.

We tried out the W retreats breakfast whilst staying in Samui and were thoroughly impressed with the huge gourmet range of custom food (both western and local), juices, muesli, pastry and cheese on offer. This really is a gourmands paradise. We would highly recommend the steamed eggs, crab omelette and custom made muesli and juices. The coffee isn't too bad... More

The roof top bar had the rock star appeal with contemporary art pieces and a magnificent view. The cocktails had great presentation with interesting combinations but a bit disappointing. They charge around 300-400 THB per drink. We dined in the Kitchen Table restaurant below the bar level for an overall lackluster meal - we went for the traditional Thai dishes... More
