We loved our 5-night stay at this quiet and peaceful resort. We chose it partly for it's location (more quiet than Chawang area, but close to Fisherman's Village), and we were not disappointed in that respect. Easy walk into the Village for restaurants and shopping (including the Friday night market). Also some great restaurants and basic shops (convenience store, laundry, ATM) nearby and easy walking along the beach. Resort itself has wonderful grounds and the staff are great (although English not as good as we have encountered elsewhere on our trip in Southeast Asia. Room was large and well-kept with a nice balcony. It was good for our one rainy day there. Housekeeping was very attentive. Breakfast has a lot of variety and was tasty. We did not eat at the restaurant there, but drinks by the pool were good (if a bit expensive for Thailand). Pools were pristine and beautiful. Beach is small and you may have to get there early to get a beach chair, but the water is very calm and pleasant for swimming. They also have kayaks and I think paddle boards to use. There are places along the beach nearby to rent jet-skis if you want. The resort caters to young families, but we (childless couple in our 30's) still enjoyed ourselves. If you are looking for a big party atmosphere, look elsewhere. We truly enjoyed ourselves and would stay again for the price and location, along with the grounds.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled as a couple

We stayed here a couple of years ago, and felt the drab beachside facilities let the place down. Despite this, and having noted that the resort had made some changes, we decided to try again as the price is hard to beat.

Turned out to be a great choice. The bar and restaurant area are now a major selling point for this resort. Fantastic views over the calm seas, brilliant service (as always in SE asia), and great food and drink. All this, and just 5 minutes along the beach to Fishermans Village and the vast range of restaurants there.

We opted for the "lesser" Pool Villa this time as this has more outside space and an outdoor shower we we enjoy. The room was great, and the extra space appreciated, but bugs were a bit of an issue. That's not a complaint about "interesting" bugs, but more about the boring ones - ants, and mossies. Despite a general fumication during our stay, these were a major problem.

However, we accept that this is sometimes a price you pay for travel in this region, and the compensation of a lovely resort on the beach in Bophut was more than adequate!

As always, staff were great, and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Extra privacy in the pool rooms and suites

We gad a week in the Hotel after a tour of Thailand and Cambodia, Excellent staff, food and amenities. We will definitely return. Lovely beach and an ideal location for visiting other parts of Koh Samui. Lance made our stay perfect as we were celebrating our 35th anniversary, his little touches made the stay an experience to remember.

This is the place to stay in Koh Samui with a family. We traveled in March with our two children ages 9/11. The family room was great. Bunk beds for the kids (twin over double) and a sliding wall between the two rooms with blackout curtains for privacy. There are 2 showers (no bathtubs) and there are 2 TVs so kids could watch their own programming.
Location was excellent as its only a 5 min walk on the beach to Fishermans Village. Kids loved the pools. While there is no kids club per se, they do offer a daily kids activity. The breakfast buffet is wonderful-something for everyone! We enjoyed the spa for several massages. While the resort spa prices are a bit higher than the street prices, the quality of location and service made it worthwhile.
Lastly, the resort staff was super friendly and very helpful at all times. We arrived very early on our check in day and they were able to receive us and provide early check in which was a great benefit after traveling all night with two children. We had a great stay and would return in heart beat.

Room Tip: All rooms are well situated around the larger of the pools. Family rooms are large and can sleep up to 3 children.
