I booked this for 4 nights so I would have a base for a mates wedding in South Samui. The room itself was amazing value. Very clean, large and ac was just the ticket to escape the heat. The staff are extreamly friendly and helpful. The one issue is location, if you require the beach, it's 10 minute walk. Get...

Swimming pool small, dark and sunning area constantly in the shade. Pool filter so loud it vibrated entire villa. Food average and service slow. Staff fighting in front of you. Didn't feel family...

It is a bit of an odd place if you're expecting a traditional...

If you want really quit place, thats it. Resort is in the middle of nowhere. Pool is nice and clean. Stuff was really kind and food is delicious but little bit expensive. Room is nice with AC, safe and big bathroom with whirlpool. If you go out of resort you need motorcycle or car.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bang kao Tropical Boutique residence & Spa is situated in the South of Koh Samui, which is an area still very green and quite untouched by tourist development, where you can feel the original atmosphere of the island and meet locals who are still working as fishermen or cultivating the land. The residence is 10 minutes walk away from a beautiful and very quiet beach of fine white sand ... more   less
