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...

Note: The property has a new general manager that arrived during the middle of our stay at the hotel. There were no apparent changes to how things were being done that affected our stay in anyway.

What a wonderful resort, that would suit: Honeymooners, families,friends or couples it really has it all. We stayed in a Grand VIlla which was just amazing, it had a large sundeck with daybed and bath.

This is our third visit to Koh Samui and our first stay at the Tongsai Bay Hotel. The island is showing signs of commercialism, the kind that ruins many island paradises, property prices have gone up, old shops are being replaced by new bars & cafes but the Thai people are just as lovely as always and Tongsai Bay Hotel...

Tongsai Bay was recommended by a friend, great recommendation, we thought is was an amazing place to spend a few days. Lovely tropical gardens and the pool areas are fab. Totally faultless, the service is exceptional, the rooms are very clean and extremely comfortable. All the staff genuinely seem to enjoy working there and being part of your holiday, nothing...

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
