The nicest place on the island. The place is over the top. I was a little concerned when we pulled up in the taxi, but I was absolutely amazed when we went to the room. The place has an amazing view of the island with infinity pool. The best thing i liked about the place was the AC worked great. There was actuality two mini split units inside that cooled the place in no time flat. The price is great. I just wish that i could have stayed longer. -It is not walking distance to the beach or any stores. They however have a van that brings you to the beach or fisherman's village for free. -one guest was playing Middle Eastern hip hop really load at the pool for hours. Everyone at the pool was annoyed by this. I was hoping that the hotel would tell them to turn down or off. I suppose that the Thai culture is just to nice and let it slide. I did enjoy my stay. the pros out-way the cons by a long shot, and i would recommend this place to anyone.
We got a House right next to the beach, very nice The beach is nice but, the water is not clear, i do not know why, but its a fact that other beaches do have clear water...a bit suspicious. Furthermore the hotel seems a bit run down.
Highly recommend, this beautiful hotel, we felt relaxed and we were treated like VIPs.It was very quiet which made it all the more relaxing. We ate in the Four Winds Restaurant and thought the meal was excellent.Breakfast was very good. The room in the Royal Wing had direct access to the large pool. I especially liked the bed, very comfortable and very big, you could get lost in it. The staff could not do enough for you, were very courteous. We had problems with the room safe, they sorted it within minutes of reporting it.The lovely ladies who offered the beauty and massage treatments were fantastic, the one hour foot massage I received was for me pure heaven! The gardens were beautiful and well kept with many flowers. Nothing!!! From my experience I do not understand some of the reviews who have criticised the restaurant food. Everything was perfect!
Hotel is located close to the beach, rooms are clean and spacious. Food at hotel's restaurants is rather good. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The room decor is not very nice in my opinion. The beach is not as well-maintained as in the hotels nearby. WiFi in lobby did not work some of the time
Well chose this hotel for my wife’s 50th Our first trip to Thailand and if the funds were ever again available wouldn’t hesitate to return to this wonderful country, just one thing about Thailand don’t go if you think it will be cheap it isn’t [if you value your stomach] budget “going out prices uk” and you wont be disappointed and when the odd bargain comes along that’s a nice surprise. That said the real value is in the cost of the hotel rooms 4 star luxury at less than the cost of a travel lodge. Ok The Samui Palm beach resort, got a great price online after much searching and booked a room in the Royal Wing, on arrival the place was pretty empty [mid Feb is early season] so lucky us they put us in a beach bungalow one back from the ones that line the beach front [these were well out of our price range] and very near the main pool, we couldn’t believe our luck, the bungalow [they call them villas] was very large, very high ceilings, four poster bed with drapes, room safe, wet shower room, sunken bath, table and chairs inside and out and a sort of private garden area with coconut trees over, yes one of the tiles was chipped and the paintwork could do with re glossing but that would be being very picky considering what we paid. Later we checked out the rooms in the royal wing this complex appears very new and has the longest swimming pool on the island [but certainly not the widest] the rooms were very nice and finished to a high standard some had private plunge pools, but they were a bit dark and some way from the beach. The beach was very nice private and quiet and BO PHUT is very quiet, out of the complex there was a 7\11 within walking distance and a two acceptable restaurants if you want a change from the hotel which has several restaurants although only two were open [like I said the place was not that full] Prices…… Starter soup or satay 120 batt [double it for pounds thus £2. Well the brochure shows sunbeds in pairs along a grass bank overlooking the ocean these are reserved for the beach front villas only,[your told to keepout] this is not made clear and is a bit misleading. That said the provision for other guests is ok even if beach sun beds are a bit in short supply.
Basic enough hotel; big room and comfortable bathroom; good variable breakfasts; huge green territory of the hotel; king-size bed there was not written anywhere that all the hotels at Bophut beach (I heard that at Maenam as well) has slimy bottom and turbid water as a result. it is not the fault of the hotel of course, but i think it is necessary to admit it.
Staff were very friendly. Architecture was nice. And there was bike rental at the door step. Outdated facilities - bathroom needed urgently renovation. The coffee is "Nescafé" - taste horrible. And there was a huge line to grab breakfast. Really hated this part. Way too far away from everything. I think the hotel is not bad but it was way too expensive for what it offers.
fantastisk dejligt hotel, utroligt venligt personale, lækker mad i restauranter, Hotellet ligger isoleret. der er ingen andre restauranter i det strandområde, men der er hotelbil til chaweng by
fantastisk beliggenhed hvad natur angår. måske lidt for langt fra andre restauranter. Men en helt fantastisk udsigt som ikke findes andre steder på øen i denne prisklasse, så smukt , ja næsten som og bo i junglen Der mangler hygge i restauranten,så bl.a stearinlysblomster etc. duge på bordende friske orkideer , det ville være en god ide
Det er et fatastisk flot hotel, hvor der er ro og fred til at slappe af ved poolen, personalet formår at skabe en stemning af du er konge, det er service på meget højt plan. Nej, alt var perfekt.
personalet gav uovertruffen service. Pool villaen var flot og smagfuldt indrettet. fitness-rummet kunne godt bruge et tv til løbebåndet, samt størrer vægte og en gulv-ventilator ved cykler/løbebånd.
Fantastisk serviceorienteret personale. Gratis shuttle service til Chaweng stranden. Der stod på hjemmesiden, at der var lokal strand - Maenam 5 minutter fra hotellet, som der var kørsel til arrangeret af hotellet. Det var ikke tilfældet. Man skulle taget til Chaweng stranden, som ligger 25 minutter fra hotellet. Lækker men dyr restaurant.
Det var et meget smukt sted med en fantastisk udsigt! Det fungerede rigtig godt med det udendørs sitting area. Personalet skal blive meget bedre til at kommunikere på engelsk, det vil også få besøgende til at føle sig mere velkomne. Sæt hellere stille og rolig lounge musik på, der matcher med omgivelserne fremfor pop/rock. Lav en velkomst bog til værelset, og ikke bare krøllede fotokopier.
Poolen ogrummet var fantastisk Det lå langt væk fra alt
It was generally ok, but the price on the performance was quite poor.
Private Jacuzzi Pool
Lovely villa pool spa rooms, restaurant food was good, and overall a lovely place to stay I did not like the fact there is a small road inbetween the reception/accommodation and the pool and the restaurant.
I enjoyed the 2-night-stayin this hotel very much, the interior design was simple but made me feel comfortable. The staff were very helpful and nice. There were many lizards around, if you hate or scare lizard like me, it is a horrible trips everytime you back to your room in night time.
It was quiet and peaceful and, although a little way away from Chaweng, this was manageable with the hire of a car. There no instructions to the safe.
I like the hotel staffs a lot. They are always having smile and try their best to comfort us. Or I will say they try to make it up to us. A lot of facilities are not yet ready. The pool is not dirty, villas are still under construction etc.
The design of the hotel and the pure luxury in an environment such as Thailand. Because the hotel was so new (it opend 3 days before our stay) there were several small things not perfect yet.
definitely a very good quality of life for the money paid- we were looking for the 5* comfort for not more than 100 EUR per day. this hotel didn't have a rating yet- very new and not so many visitors yet, but am sure that with time it will get good reviews. room is very fresh, specious. pool and beach area are just great. everything is very clean and as the hotel is relatively small you do not feel that there are other people around. initially staying for 4 days we decided to prolong it for 10 days even though i believe it is a great place, not everything was perfect which also can explain the reasonable price for the rooms- stuff speaking terrible English " yes-yes" level, for breakfast you get a menu with 3 dishes- and this is the choice for the whole stay- my husband (for whom food is very important) was just angry- same scrambled eggs for the 10 days was rather a nightmare, moreover after 2 days asking the waiter to add beans to the scrambled eggs (both were in the menu), and still not getting them, we decided that probably it is not worth trying and ate in the other places. Another thing -there not enough parasols near the swimming pool so basically if you are not the early bird then will enjoy the sun for the whole day
