The wonderful team, the very testy food, the spa where we were so luxury, the beautiful incredible beach location- we loved everything about the W. The food is real 5 stars a The retreats are gorgeous - all with a private pool.
Strong recommend Irma and Bjoern

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 as well as Chaweng (3) times a day!) Sea is nice, not shallow like some places in Lamai. The sand is a bit coarse if you compare to Chaweng beach where sand is softer (but I wouldn't imagine trading awesome clear waters and cool beach beds and hammocks of W to not so clean Chaweng). If you still find the sand coarse , hotel lends you beach shoes absolutely complimentary. The same applies to kids beach toys, kayaks and zillion sports activities. You have free jogging, yoga, Thai boxing , and some other fitness trainings which we were lazy to check out. All of them with good instructors and is simply awesome spots (ask your travel mates or W staff for pictures while u r boxing at Woobar:) Beautiful view of Koh Pa Ngan)
Common and private pools are great , too, though didn't really stay at our private pool (villa 145) because beach is much more fun with Fit and Bar staff taking super good care of guests . Facilities are very spacious, never feels crowded.

All layouts, landscapes and designs are awesome. I've no clue how old is the property but everything looks and feels brand new , with plenty of cool W features.

Bars and lounges are great. Breakfast is out of this world, huge selection and great quality of food . We also tried lunch in Kitchen Table and dinner in Japanese, both were super tasty and nicely priced (the same as in any simple decent place in Fisherman Village or Chaweng).

TEAM IS AWESOME! Service in all outlets, room cleaning, handling any guest requests are all impeccable. Daniel the GM and Team are doing an excellent job, always with a great vibe.

W has wifi literally everywhere around the property and even on their bus. Hotel staff offers you a whatsapp contact and all messages are replied very quickly. It is very very convenient. They were helping with advise when I was out of the property and even after I checked out to stay in Conrad (we usually try few hotels at different points of the place to have a different experience. BTW, Conrad was a disappointment after W)

My husband and I are very well travelled and as he said: It's a great luck to find accommodation so comfortable and beautiful, with excellent and caring service, great and inexpensive food and drinks, special design and nice touches every now and then.
Hope to come again, and Highly recommend.

I have stayed here numerous times. I lived on this island for 2 years and used the W as a base for all liasions and meetings. It is always booked up and has a premium price. One of the top 3 hotels on the island. Moment you pull up its evident of the quality. Very modern with modern art. The dining area and bar where all the photos are taken is the ultimate view. No need to book hotel. Book lunch and sit here without paying high room rates. Really gorgeous place. Love the detail. Free gorgeous pop corn given complimentey. Just high quality throughout. Def worth a visit

I visited the W retreat whilst on my hens day. We sipped amazing cocktails and the view is to die for! If you want a romantic night out, this is def a good spot to park for the night!
The prices are on the higher end, but what you expect at a 5 star resort.
The decor and furnishings are stunning, and the whole feel of the place oozes class. Thanks for an amazing night W!

Hello Claire T,

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

Couldn’t agree more that it’s the place to be in Samui for a sophisticated cocktail - either at Woobar or Sip bar and having a romantic night out with our private dinner set up by the beach is the perfect finish for the day. We hope you also had the chance to try our Sunset ritual cocktails as well, if not hopefully on your next visit.

Looking forward to see you again soon.

All the best,
Daniel Simon

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 more!
It's truly my best vacation ever, coupled with perfect weather.. I truly loved it and would really recommend it for all travelers. It's very spica like. Thank you Daniel, thanks Zita and thank you Me Big :)
