W koh samui is definitely worthy of all praise! I'll try to skip emotions (which are all wow and superb) and give some practically useful comments. First, location of W is great and offers scenic view to the bay, awesome greenery and at the same time it's only 2km away from Fisherman Village (BTW, hotel provided free shuttle to there...

Hello Claire T, Thank you for sharing your thoughts, we are pleased that you enjoyed your escape with us.

This is by far my best hotel stay ever! It's a very prime location on the island of Koh Samui. Very impressive sceneries of small islands away from the beach of the hotel. Sandy beaches, exotic gardens, very spread villas across a huge territory. Very pleasant and charming staff, great food, great amenities, WoW villas.. you can never ask for...

Having stayed at several W's I had to check this one out. It doesn't disappoint. If you are a W fan you will find all the usual details, cool bars, appealing restaurants, elegant lounges.

The lounge at W Retreat Koh Samui has incredible views, an impressive infinity pool and a stylish design. The sky colors at sunset can be amazing, followed by a nice evening of chilled music...a really wonderful spot to hang out and enjoy beautiful Koh Samui.

We went for dinner in the floating place. The ambience and closeness to water was exotic! The floating seating arrangement feels very good! Limited choice for vegetarians. It was a bit dark after sun-set.
