I love that I can order a carafe of white wine and it is served in an ice bucket. In 30c heat wine doesn't stay chilled long, other restaurants and bars take note. The soft shell crab tempura is delicious although I'm now slightly warmer than I was. Lobster & mango rolls are good but lime and lime leaves with... More

Everything was great. Staff were awesome and really helpful and beautiful smules. But if you dont want a mojito made with cheap thai sang som rum then this is not your place. I dont know why higher end places like this dont upgrade their base liquors.

We have just returned from a beautiful week at Poppies. The Thai cottages. are lovely, spacious and clean, surrounded by tropical plants and waterfalls. The air conditioning in our room was fantastic, quiet enough to sleep very comfortably. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming, and couldn't do enough to ensure a perfect stay. Fresh fruit and little cakes... More

One of the best Thai meals you can have in Samui. While the ambience was average and quite hot being monsoon, and they don't offer air conditioning, the fans are quite weak but, but, to add to this, the food itself is outstanding. We ordered quite a few of the menu items and each of them were excellent. No complains... More

The walk to the beach through the jungle style grounds of Poppies hotel can take your breath away. Winding pathways over bridges and streams, tame coy carp and a cool beachfront, basically a tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment. The restaurant sells a plethora of Thai classics all very tasty.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali, Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location. ... more   less
