“Secluded heaven in a hotel!”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

My boyfriend & i stayed for 9 nights in September 2011, booked after reading great reviews & now we know why! Upon check in we were immediately upgraded to a room with pool view.

Set away from the busy tourist areas of Lamai & Chaweng, this is the spot for pure relaxation. Everywhere is accesible with a scooter or car hire which the hotel help to arrange at going rates. It features its own private beach which is small but just perfect.. Staff clean debris swept up from the night before every morning.

Our room overlooked the main pool & was spacious and clean.. The bed was probably the most comfy we've ever experienced in a hotel! Patio doors had a mosquito mesh so i wasn't bitten once (a rarity anywhere i go as mossies seem to love my blood) and the air con was wonderful & quiet. Housekeeping everyday with clean towels and bedding and cleaning was always thorough to my delight!

We only ate once at the restaurant but food was adequate if not a tad expensive. Buffet breakfast we enjoyed & was plentiful.

Staff are amazing people, from the groundsman to the waiting girls.. Always smiling & will do everything to make sure you're happy & have everything you need. We felt really at home because of this.

Only downfall is probably having to pay for wifi access, but having said this, this didn't bother us as its fairly priced @ £3 per day & connection was normally fine.

For the price we paid, this hotel is fantastic value for money & we'd recommend it in a heartbeat.

Thank you to Rajapruek for an amazing time!!! :)

We stayed here 7 days in February 2010 in front bech bungalow.The sea was clean and calm while in Chaweng was stormy this time. Traditional thai hospitality from Oi and Chu, cleanless, tasty breakfast, shezlongues on the beach, 2 beatiful pools - everything was exellent. That is why we recommend it everyone who expect luxury vacation for little money( only 100 $ for night). But Rajapruek has only 3 such luxury front beach bungalows in one step from the waves- you must book in advance.

The Rajapruek Resort hotel sits on a 7 kilometre soft, silver sand beach fringed by lofty coconut Palms. The sea, clean, turquoise and deep cerulean blue reaches to the horizon's gift of the islands of the Ang Thong National Marine Park. Being on the West Coast of this tropical paradise of Samui the sunsets are spectacular.

This is a family run hotel and its personal attention to detail shows constantly in their quiet enthusiasm for each guest's enjoyment.

It is our family's third visit, this time for over two weeks. This time we stayed in a Beach bungalow, literally our front door was 4 metres from the high tide line. Three of us shared this lovely cottage and slept soundly lulled by the gentle sussuration of waves on the sand. Rajapruek sleep is many times more refreshing than at home in Belgium.

The Rajapruek's Restaurant offers a large selection of European and Thai dishes. Be sure to ask for any fish specials. The grilled barracuda is succulent and delicious. Usually one only finds this level of cooking and presentation in the five star restaurants with their attendant bank shattering bills. We do eat "out" and Samui offers a wealth of fine dining, but getting down to it - well the Rajapruek's Sea Breeze restaurant is difficult to beat.

If watersport is your thing then the hotel offers the use of their Hobie Catamaran and sea kayaks. Lifejackets are required fashion and these are provided by the Rajapruek. We are into diving and this is all perfectly arranged by the excellent Reception staff from pick up to return collection.
If you would like to try scuba diving and it is your first time you will find one of the family is PADI certified and she can guide you into safe and capable hands. It opens up a whole new range of things to do.

The Rajapruek is perfect for honeymoon couples with their own secluded bungalow on the beach. Weddings are also arranged and handled by the hotel. If you would like to get married in style, on the beach with jungle encrusted mountains as a background and the beauty of the sea for those memorable photos just leave ALL the work to the hotel and enjoy the wedding.
Back here in the grim dark drear of a Belgian 6 month winter our memories of the Rajapruek keep us warm as the computer counts down the 207 days until the Easter holidays when we can return to real civilisation and lovely people.

I stayed here with my partner for four nights in August 2011.

The resort is positioned on the South West corner of Samui looking towards the national marine park. A self-contained compound, the hotel comprises a main building with en suite rooms, reception and restaurant, large pool, beach, sun lounger area with small pool and bungalows by the beach.

The location is remote and very secluded in comparison to the northern areas of the island. If you are looking for a good value quiet location away from nightlife and hawkers, this is the place to stay. Hotel amenities are basic but good quality, the staff are extremely helpful and interested in answering queries.

We stayed in room 214 overlooking the large pool. The room was very clean and includes a safe, TV, fridge and daily drinking water, bathroom/wet room with shower and western toilet. The rooms are tiled and furnished with teak-style large beds as is the Thai hotel style. The air conditioner is great and cools the room down within about three minutes of turning it on.

The beach area is small and quite private and not overlooked by any other resorts. Because this area is not very developed for tourists there were very few beach sellers and none that were annoying. The sand is white and clean and the water warm (although, beware the washed up jellyfish common to all the island coastline).

We ate in the restaurant several times for lunch and dinner and for breakfast each day. Food is reasonable quality and price, although much more expensive than street food obviously. Breakfast is a buffet service with hot eggs and bacon available to order.

The hotel is a family business and the staff are really kind. We asked for help with taxi transfers, change, directions, laundry and kayaks. We were consistently treated warmly and professionally which really enhanced our stay. This is not a corporate or chain location and there were occasional mix ups with food orders, but nothing serious. Strangely, the quirky things made the experience all the better.

There was a power failure one evening for about half an hour during a storm. This is common lots of parts of the island. Larger hotels have generators, but really this doesn't present a problem.

Just outside of the hotel to the left is Nikki Beach, a luxury chain resort and beach club. This is an amazingly well appointed place and has a definite 'wow' factor. We visited for dinner and cocktails on a quiet evening and really enjoyed it. It is very expensive (3,700THB for dinner and drinks) but probably worth a one off visit. It's worth knowing that there is an ATM just inside the entrance.

To the right of Rajapruek is a small shop house selling beer, homemade biscuits etc. Just beyond that is a street cafe serving typical Thai food that is really cheap. If you fancy a change from the hotel food you should be adventurous and visit. We paid 250THB for three dishes and beer!

Overall, this is an excellent choice for those looking for tropical seclusion on a moderate budget. For luxury stay elsewhere, but for a warm welcome and a relaxing couple of days this is a good choice.

Room Tip: Visit Nikki Beach next door for a great evening out (and an ATM!)

We stayed here on this side of koh samui to attend a friends wedding. The pools were lovely. The hotel was quite quiet so we pretty much had a pool to our selves. The staff are polite and helpful. The rooms, however, were a bit if a disappointment. They were clean enough but smelt very musty. The doors were in need of repair. Some friends staying in the same hotel said they couldn't even lock their door! The hotel was fine for a short stay as we spent little time at the hotel, but at the price we we paid i would have been disappointed if I had planned a longer relaxing holiday. It was nothing to write home about.
