We recommend a stay at the Tongsai Bay if you are looking for a real authentic visit to Koh Samui. We really enjoyed our 6 nights there in a Seafront Cottage. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food is wonderful and the views are amazing. There are lots and lots of steps to everywhere but you can get...

The floor boards in the room looked a little worn in places and the hanging of the curtains left you thinking they might fall down upon you when you pulled them. But that's it - that is a much as we can think to fault. The accommodation was wonderful, the staff were fantastic and the resort, location and views just...

Simply excellent, the service here is absolutely 5 star. All the staff are genuinely friendly, the rooms are excellent and the breakfast in the morning is amazing, everything you could wish for. It's the fine details that make this place so good, bringing round fresh drinking water to guests on the beach, free water sports equipment and beautiful lunches that...

We spent 10 days at the Tongsai Bay and had a wonderful time. We stayed in a cottage overlooking the bay area which was surrounded by greenery and wildlife. The cottage was large and had a great balcony with a huge bath overlooking the beach (it's all hidden though!). The beach was peaceful and clean and the half moon pool,...

Stayed here for a week in July 2012 with a friend. Very pleased with our choice. Impeccable service and accommodation. Extremely responsive staff. Great views from the hillside villas but be prepared for some steep walking, if you have young children suggest you book suites near the pool. The private villas with swimming pools are great for size and privacy-...

We honeymooned here and were impressed with the beautiful grounds and quiet location. During our stay, the resort was constructing more villas (which we knew about in advance of travelling), so to compensate for any disturbance (there really wasn't much) they had a free bar beside the pool for an hour each day, which was a nice touch! We stayed...

A beautiful, very green and well maintained resort in the north-eastern part of Samui with a private beach. Hardly any noise of JetSkis which you have everywhere else. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast. We found the pool areas to be very crowded, especially on our first day we could not find a free deckchair at either one of the pools or...

Perfect start to a perfect honeymoon! We were given a private (and huge!) cottage overlooking 2 sides of the bay and the staff at Tongsai Bay really make us feel like royalty. We happened to (luckily) be there for their 25th anniversary where they put on an impressive cocktail party with tapas buffet for the entire resort. The location of...

We stayed at Tongsai Bay for the second part our our holiday in Koh Samui. We stayed in the beachfront suites on the ground floor which suited our family perfectly. The room was very spacious and the bathroom exquisite. The main pool is probably the best hotel pool we have experienced. It was impeccably maintained, very big and a perfect...

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
