Stayed here for 2 weeks with my girlfriend and had a lovely stay! The staff are really attentive- didn't let us raise a finger the whole time and felt very looked after, especially by 'zees' who works at waterline by the pool. Good fun, always ensured we had everything we needed and went the extra mile to make us happy....

We stayed for 8 nights at this beautifully maintained resort, (2 adults and our 3 year old). The design was timeless inside and out, and our room was always well serviced and impeccably cleaned. The staff were fantastic. When our luggage didn't make our connecting flight to Koh Samui, the front desk staff kept on top of the airline for...

we stayed here for two nights as part of a treat to ourselves while travelling Asia. We booked a Lamai Suite and where simply blown away by how nice it was. It was not only massive, but also impeccably stylish and clean. The hotel pool was great to relax at, with plenty of nearby places for a spot of lunch....

The hotel is in a great location. It is not by the bars, so it is quiet. They have their on private beach. Four resturants and the coffee is great. When we come to Koh Samui again, we will stay here. The internet is good for streaming.

Myself and my partner spent 5 nights here and left today. The hotel was lovely. Rooms were fantasic and spacious with good air conditioning and services available. The price was alittle expensive on a book now basis but some fantastic deals available online when you start looking. We stayed in a delux lamai suite and it was fantastic (room 263)....

The deluxe manathai suite was absolutely amazing for us - we traveled two adults with two kids (1+3 years old). The service was wonderful, food in the hotel for breakfast was great and the amount of food options provided by the hotel and on the street were all delicious and very well priced. The pool is perfect for families with...

Stayed here for a family wedding, but would not return. Although the place is comfortable generally (big rooms, big comfy bed (hard as rock pillows kind of ruin that), the service is not what you'd expect. Rooms are cleaned daily, but toiletries are not replaced. We ran out of shower gel, as did our daughter (in another room) and eventually...
