We enjoyed 9 days recovering here at the end of a six week trip round SE Asia. Despite some poor weather we had a great time - the staff are charming and very good, the restaurants have some great choices and the half moon pool (adults only) is a nice usually quiet spot, only spoil occasionally by the excessive photographic...

I was in love with this place the second we hoped out of the car, the staff were so particularly amazingly kind. They could not do enough for you. There were always something to do and someone to help you. I would absolutely recommend this place if you need a holiday that is completely indulgent and relaxing and want to...

What an incredible resort!! We stayed at one of the sea front villas and it is absolutely amazing!!! The food is great and the beach bar has delicious daily drinks specials! The staff is very attentive to your every needs! The grounds are gorgeous and well kept, we will definitely go back to this resort when back in Thailand!

BE careful when booking through Hotels.com. They are tricky and you need to read all fine print. They BAIT AND SWITCHED ME. I booked a room for 299 usd, and the hotel billed me 383 usd saying it was because of the conversion rate, as if I didn't understand. I understood and didn't appreciate the BS treatment. I generally won't...

Stunning property and very well managed hotel! Perfect for our large group of 10. The layout is excellent, with the pool and ocean next to each other. The food was outstanding and the staff went out of their way to customise our orders, and we are a fussy family. Lisa and Mark were very hospitable and went out of their...

After just retiring from 40 years of innkeeping I booked a month in Thailand for a little R&R. Though many come for the wild nightlife I am a little beyond that. This was, by far, my favorite stop. Why? Granted it is a bit pricey for Thailand, but you get what you pay for and so much more. I would...

We stayed here in a pool cottage for 11 nights in early December. I cannot praise the fabulous and friendly staff highly enough. If you are looking to escape to your own little corner of paradise, look no further. This hotel is removed from the hustle & bustle of Koh Samui but close enough to explore Chaweng or the Fisherman's...

We spent 4 nights here over Christmas. The rooms were spotless and the resort offered a real opportunity to relax in a beautiful setting. It was clear that the visible senior management had a genuine concern that each customer group had a wonderful time and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. This approach clearly cascaded through all the staff,...

Stayed here for 7 nights over Christmas in a Beachfront Suite room. The service is great and the staff are friendly and look after you. The room was lovely. A great size with a large L shaped sofa and lovely balcony on which to relax. The bathroom was huge and delight to be in although the shower wasn't the most...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more   less
