We spent two nights at Panalee Resort, and were very happy with our bungalow. The bed was comfy and the AC worked wonders, one of the main problems we encountered in other places while traveling in Thailand (the AC is there, but it doesn't cool the room at all)
It is a bit out of the way, but this didn't bother us much because we wanted some quiet time, and we got it.
We ordered food from their restaurant, and although it was late, they agreed to make our meal.
The breakfast could improve, but overall we liked this place very much!
I liked that you can rent DVDs from the front desk, and I suggest they improve their collection, though we liked the movie we picked.
I definitely recommend Panalee for those that want some down time and peace.

As ı trusted trip advisor reviews at busy new year season has been book for panalee resort for 3 nights but ı really disspointed for several reasons.
First of all their main pool always occupied by fırst (basement rooms) visitors such as private pool the other pool available but already very small to get enjoy swimming.
The resort breakfast near to poor and unattended , boiling water kettle always out of water and allegedly buffet selection really little (especially for westerners)
The most important issue was dissapointed me and partner that in spite of we left note for room cleaning servıce asking the change of bath towels (cause they woul not not change 2 consequences day) ; Once we come back room we suprised to see the towels left as is ; straight away we called reception and explained case and they suggested we may go reception by dirty towels and get clean ones ???? I am almost travelling 8 years this is the first time this class hotel manner customer like this , They have enough stuff strolling around and they ask customer to go reception for their unfilled duty. the other interesting matter they only deliver bath towel but the face towels not available ; The hotel really smart to charge more money at peak seasons but not enough towel for customers .
Anyway the hotel rate for thıs breakfast and service really over and ı m sure much better hotels available at this rate , in case back to koh samui ı wıll not back this hotel sure

After a relatively stressful time (as we read that panalee was closed for renovation and could not get hold of them), we arrived at Panalee and were impressed with what we found.
We got a good deal for a pool view room on expedia but found when we got there that we had been upgraded to a lovely and spacious 1 bedroom bungalow (the resort was pretty empty and some renovations such as roof thatching was being undertaken.
The bedroom and bathroom were large and we were given complimentary water. The gardens were beautiful and the pool was lovely and the resort was only around 20m from the beach. We also had excellent food from a couple of the simple looking restaurants across the road on the beachfront and they were also really cheap and sold authentic thai food.
The people working there were really friendly and helpful.
There was cable tv in the rooms but apart from a couple of news channels, none were in english. Many dvds (of varying quality) were available to rent from the office though which was great.
We had a great stay at Panalee and only wish we could have stayed for more than 2 nights. It was the perfect place to stay during our honeymoon. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone and would love to go back.

Lovely peaceful resort in Bang Por, Koh Samui where our every need was met...Now under renovation so will be closed for a while, but we had the most relaxing time there in a private villa - lovely surrounds and lovely staff...Would definitely stay there again if it came up as an internet special..

Room tip: We had a villa very close to the pool but as there were very few guests there at time, we had the whole pool to ourselves..Room was lovely with plenty of space in entrance..Nice big fridge...only problem was bathroom had very little ventilation and so used to give off a musty damp odour..

I must admit after reading through trip advisors reviews i decided to book myself in here.
Fantastic surrounding, indeed very lush and green and well maintained gardens. I booked for a deluxe room but was offered one of the bungalows instead which had a special character that influences the serenity of the surroundings.
The hotel staff were not only friendly but indeed very helpful too (always offered suggestions and options on what i could do during my visit and see which places i could visit).
I did not get to use the restaurant as its under renovation.

I am already recommending this place to friends and likewise am looking forward to going back sometime in the future again.

A very big thank you to the Panalee staff and management for making my stay very pleasant and enjoyable.
