Tong Sai Bay is an excellent hotel located between Chaweng and Bophut. The hotel is set on a hillside around a cove with its own private beach. In contrast to other reviewers, we hugely enjoy the romantic setting of the hotel. While there are steps to climb up and down, these are surrounded by lush and well maintained vegetation so... More

Short 10 minute ride from the airport and a fairly efficient if a little busk check-in and then we were taken in a buggy to the suite. We had been upgraded to a sea front suite which was cool but wow there really are a lot of steps at this resort. All steps are at different levels and angles so... More

We had a wonderful 10 nights at the hotel. We had 2 beachfront rooms, one for my husband and I and one for our children. The rooms were "interconnected" via the balcony rather than the room itself which was fine for our age children. The setting is absolutely stunning, the staff are fantastic and I couldn't fault this place at... More

My wife and I stayed at the Tongsai Bay for our honeymoon for 10 days and 9 nights. We did not want to leave by the end of our stay. The service is amazing. You sit down anywhere in reception and within a minute, cold water is served to you without having to ask. If you arrive early but your... More

Great hotel with extremely friendly and courteous staff. The rooms are great and its private beach is even better. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone who wants to relax. The beach front rooms are great but I highly recommend the hilltop beach view rooms as you can be away from the crowds but still enjoy... More

My husband met me hear after traveling through Asia. It was the perfect end to my trip. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Ordering cars. Booking excursions. Even a recipe for my favorite dish. Views of the ocean and pool. Yoga instructors were top notch. Would go back in a heartbeat

Sat at the bar on our final night here and can honestly say that I have never stayed anywhere as friendly, welcoming and beautiful. We (myself, my husband and 2 children) have stayed in a Beachfront suite which is located right next to the main pool and the beach and just down the hill from reception. It was comfortable, beautifully... More

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
