Situated just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the fishermens village, Cocooning hotel is a small, family run hotel which offers excellent value for money in an ideal location a minute away from the beautiful beach of Bo Phut. Run by Londoner Dave and his Swedish wife Therese, this 6 bedroom hotel offers a bar, clean rooms...

We can't thank the team at Cocooning enough for our two wonderful stays over the past week. If you're looking for comfortable, affordable, and well-located accommodation, this place is for you! Dave, Therese, and the rest of the staff truly go the extra mile for their guests. Fridays are a blast as they offer tasty tapas, drink specials, and you...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights including a Friday thereby allowing us to enjoy the 'walking street' market directly opposite the hotel and social entertainment of meeting many locals frequenting the bar during the evening. The rooms are clean and comfortable and while the pool is small, it is extremely clean and refreshing providing a nice respite from...

First of all, its important to note we paid around $45 for a night here. With that in mind, you cant complain much. If you are looking for a hotel close to the beach and a place to lay your head then this hotel will suit your needs. The hotel is just behind the beach, you have access to another...

Stayed for a few nights. I found the owners very pleasant, friendly and helpful. They both had excellent knowledge and information about the local area and island-wide attractions. However, the rooms were on the small size and well used, (my a/c unit barely worked, even though it was re-gassed while I was there). Annoyingly, the owners closed the common area...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just minutes walk from the beach and perfectly located at the quiet end of the villages many shops and restaurants, Cocooning is a tranquil paradise and a great place to enjoy Samui from. Great value for money, the hotel is very competitively priced for the area and perfect for couples, families and singles of all ages. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome from Dave and Therese, the hotel's owners, who are by far the hotel's biggest asset. The dynamic duo from England and Sweden have lived in Thailand for over 10 years, offering a wealth of experience and local knowledge. They started their journey on Koh Tao where they met and worked in the diving industry, until they set up their first business together running a very successful beachside bar and restaurant. They were later married and looking for a new adventure with the imminent arrival of their first child, set their sights on Cocooning in 2012. They instantly added something special to the hotel and their little personal touches can be seen throughout. Service is most definitely with a smile and guests are made to feel instantly at home. ... more   less
