Bangkok, Thailand8 contributions
One of the top ranking hotels in Thailand. I have spent my wonderful 1 week holidays at Vana Belle Resort, this resort is situated right on the Chaweng Noi Beach with direct access to the beach. Room size is large enough for longer stay, bed is comfortable, towels are high-quality, double wash basins also make the stay conveniently. Each room has a private pool, and many rooms enjoy stunning sea view. Due to the resort is facing east, so rooms with sea view won’t get burned by the sun in the afternoon but spectacular sunrise is expected to be seen when the weather is not cloudy. In additional, breakfast, food and beverages also satisfied my taste bud through my entire stay. What is absolutely impressive was the service provided by hotel staffs, they have very well performed and remarkably demonstrated what a luxury resort supposed to be. I hereby would like to specially thank to Khun Patama, who warmly greeted me at the very first moment I stepped in the hotel; Khun Day, who wasn’t a Bell Man but helped to carry my luggage upon my arrival; Khun Pan, Khun N and Khun Gale, who helped me to cook delicious dinner for in-room dining, even through the last order time has passed 15 min (which means I prolonged their work hour); Khun Bom, Khun Aor, Khun Max and Khun Pang, who alway enthusiastically greeted me and initially serviced me when every time I came to pool bar and restaurant; as well as Khun Ang, Khun Tik and Khun On, who cleaned my room meticulously leading a unforgettable stay. Finally, I would like to thank to Khun Cynthia, the Chinese staff, she attentively and diligently made all-out efforts throughout my stay to ensure comfortability and satisfaction in all possible aspects. I strongly suggest that the General Manager of Vana Belle should draw up comprehensive incentive policies to reward all these hotel staffs for their dedication to their jobs, particularly during Covid-19 crisis, I know how hard it is for hospitality business, however, their dedication really means a lot to the hotel, their names above not only deserve to be mentioned but also they deserve to be rewarded. After all, their contributions are the ultimate asset of Vana Belle and the signature of true luxury. It’s my second time revisiting Vana Belle, I believe I will come back again in the near future.

I have stayed at many 5-star resorts in Koh Samui in the last couple of years and based on my experience the value for the money at Vana Belle is hard to beat. The Marriott loyalty program elite treatment was great, the service was excellent, the location is hard to beat and VB is in front of one of the best beaches on the island so I can easily recommend this hotel. Within the Marriott chain, VB is normally priced below W and above RC. In covid times all three have significantly reduced their prices but VB has done it more aggressively than the other two and is now the cheapest of the three for many dates I checked. I received an upgrade as Marriott Ambassador guest to what I believe is their highest room category, the “Vana Belle Ocean View Pool Suite” so it could not possibly be more generous. The combined bedroom / living room area was not particularly large but the bathroom was huge - I think it was as big as the bedroom and living room combined. Both parts of the room were overlooking the sea, and the beach was close enough that we could clearly hear the waves from our room even with the patio doors closed. There were frosted glass windows in the toilet and shower to ensure good lighting at the back of the room and there were sky lights on the ceiling of the bathroom which is a great feature. There was plenty of outdoor patio space including a large pool on the entire length of the room (approximately 10 meters). The privacy was excellent from both sides due to the wall panels on both sides. The room was not perfect however. First off the resort is facing east so we had sunrise but unfortunately no sunset and the roof of the building was useful to provide some shade to sit outside but the downside is that it also made the pool a bit cool due to the lack of direct sunlight in the afternoon except at the edge of the pool. Second, while the room was spacious and well maintained, it was nonetheless not new and shiny and might come across as more bland compared to the villas at W and also compared to the more newly built RC. In addition at W all rooms are stand-alone villas; at RC the higher levels of rooms are also stand-alone villas whereas at VB in the top level room type we had two neighbors below us for a total of three rooms in our building, each room below us being about half of the size of our own room. And if we compare with resorts other than Marriott, Conrad’s hardware beats VB as well. In my experience VB was one of the best of all resorts we have seen in Koh Samui for dining. The breakfast buffet has returned and had a rotation of four Asian hot dishes such as fried rice, Pad Thai, stir-fried chicken with veggies, etc. To go along the buffet there was an extensive a la carte menu with luxury options such as white omelet with crab meat and teriyaki salmon. In contrast many other resorts in Samui currently have far more limited a la carte menus. I also noticed they changed the fruits available on a daily basis to avoid repetition including passion fruits and pomelo. And to cap off a great luxury breakfast, guests Platinum and above could have free-flow Prosecco (Nua) and Bloody Mary’s. We ordered room service a couple of times during our stay and the prices were below those of many 5-star hotels in Bangkok, let alone Koh Samui hotels where prices are normally higher. When I saw the prices of the menu I thought the portions would be small but they were appropriate so the value was definitely there. Service was excellent during our stay and is a strength of this hotel, starting with the special welcome ceremony and the friendly personnel at the restaurant as well. Many staff members addressed us by name wherever we went on the resort and took great care of us at all times. The beach right in front of VB was great and this alone will attract many guests to choose VB. Conrad has the sunset views because it’s on the west side of the island but beaches are much better on VB’s side of the island by a wide margin. I would also note that the beach at VB is fairly long and walkable. Overall I found VB to be the best value for the money of all resorts we have stayed in Koh Samui. VB being cheaper than Conrad and W is warranted in my view because the entry level rooms at Conrad + W are stand-alone villas, are significantly bigger as well, and Conrad even have views for the entry level rooms. If we compare to the higher room types at VB then it becomes more comparable to other 5-star hotels and the price differential will then shrink. Bottom line VB is very strong for service and dining, not to mention that for people who highly value a great beach and location then Vana Belle will be an excellent choice.

Dear WorldWideTravel88, Thank you very much for taking time and writing this detailed review about Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection resort on Koh Samui. It was great pleasure for all Vana Belle family members to meet you. We always try to ensure to make stays for all our honorable guests memorable, relaxing, recharging and rejuvenating. It is particular satisfying to know that you, a Marriott BonVoy Ambassador Elite member had an exceptional time. Due to current business situation it was our pleasure to upgrade you to Vana Belle Ocean View Pool Suite. As you indicated Vana Belle is a 100% Suite and Villa resort. With 72 Suites and 7 Tropical Pool Villas our set up is very different than other Luxury Resort providers. Our Vana Belle associates are focused to ensure that we match expectations. Therefore, our focal point on upgrading our Marriott BonVoy Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador Elite members to the next higher category. Being located on Chaweng Noi beach which is south of Chaweng we are facing to the East and enjoy an amazing sunrise. In addition, the beach of Chaweng Noi is one of the finest beaches in Southeast Asia, perfect for those who love to swim in the ocean as there are no stones or corals to be afraid of. With 180 meters straight beach Vana Belle enjoys the longest straight beach on Koh Samui. We also offer an abundance of sun loungers with sufficient privacy for all our guests. F&B is an important part and it is correct that our F&B pricing is similar to free standing restaurants in Bangkok. Our restaurants are managed with and independent view. Positioning ourselves as a place where locals come to meet - eat - drink and come back again and again. With a farm to table approach and a 100% local culinary team we are particularly proud of our home smoked fish and meat products plus our artisan bakery items. Purchasing seasonal products, fresh from the local market is key and this sets us apparat from other breakfast destinations. Of course not to forget our famous Vana Belle Prosecco breakfast which is well known around the island. This breakfast is included in our first class Suite and Villa categories. Thank you for praising our associates and their service from the heart. Personal engagement is the most important element during your stay at Vana Belle. Our Vana Belle associates are keen to tailor the stay to your needs in order for you to collect memorable moments and come back again and again. While you visited many of the leading Luxury Resorts on Koh Samui we are grateful that you stayed with us. Thank you! As you indicated Vana Belle is very different to other luxury resorts and as there is only one Vana Belle in the world, the resort is unique in its own way. The Vana Belle family is looking forward welcoming you back for another exceptional, relaxing, recharging and rejuvenating stay. Yours truly, Dieter Ruckenbauer General Manager Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort Koh Samui
