Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel gets an A+! It’s exactly what we were looking for. We stayed for 10 nights and don’t have a single complaint (which is saying a lot because we are in the hospitality business and very picky). We are in our mid-40s and have a crazy busy life at home. We were looking for something relaxing and quiet with privacy and amazing views. This place had it all!
The staff was amazing and went above and beyond. They even helped us arrange a doctor to come to the hotel when we had an issue. They also helped us track down a bag that was lost in Bangkok.
We both had a massage at the spa twice and it was wonderful! (Ask for Nok!)
They have daily happy hour with two for one drinks. (which believe me, although they are more pricey, are worth the cost since I got food poisoning at a beach bar down the road.)
You do want to know that currently they do not have a sandy beach in front of the property. It was washed away by monsoon season. This wasn’t an issue for us because in either direction there’s plenty of beach to hang out on. I highly recommend going to your left And finding Nanas beach bar to spend the day. Great drinks (no food poisoning) and a wonderful beach and laid-back atmosphere.
If you are looking for the thumping music and party scene, this isn’t the place. But if you’re like us and came to relax and enjoy without the chaos, this might be the place for you. We had a room with a Seaview plunge pool. If you can afford it, go ahead and splurge it was worth every penny in the privacy was amazing! Love this place and we would return!

Such a relaxing and beautiful place! The pool is clean with a stunning view and the beach is just steps away from the hotel.

Ko Samui was our last stop in Thailand - no disappointment! Great service from the front desk and restaurant. The staff are all extremely kind!

Our room was clean and spotless when we arrived. I was surprised with beautiful roses on the bed for our anniversary. Laundry service is available before 2pm but it will be ready the next day around 4pm. However, we called the front desk to see if they can deliver our clothes before and they kindly said it can be ready at 12pm.

The breakfast, lunch, and dinner are amazing! Our waiter was Pee - great sense of humor and gave us delicious food/drink recommendations! The fried ice cream dessert is a MUST to try!!

FYI, you can get a relaxing beach massage just feet away from the hotel, right on the ocean. Affordable and great massages!

What a beautiful way to end our Thailand trip! We will recommend this hotel to all our friends and family!

A beautiful place with a well-planned territory. Caring staff, many smiles, friendly, helpful staff at the reception. We liked the shutdown service. Beautiful pool, perfectly replaces the sea at high tide. Breakfast is very varied. We liked the availability of national dishes for breakfast, the variety is better than in restaurants. We didn’t like the grill day: the food was tasteless, under the place where the grill stood the lawn deteriorated - a place without grass measuring 1 meter by 2 meters spoils the view. It's great that you can take a kayak and a standing board, only no one gave us instructions. Beer from the bar is expensive, but in a 10-minute shop with a good assortment. The pool bar smoothies are great, more expensive than the market, but they are worth it. Cocktails in beautiful glasses, do not spare alcohol. Dinners are interesting, good national dishes. In general, we want to return. We hope that everything will be also good in the future.

We have just had 12 nights at The Coast in a beach view pool villa and everything was excellent. We were a little unsure what it would be like second time around since the name change from Sensimar Resort and Spa when we stayed in February last year. We need not have worried, everything is still the same - brilliant. The adult only resort offers everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the sun. The staff are absolutely amazing and so very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are services twice a day, they book tours at your request and offer a shuttle bus to markets. The food is very good - we have no hesitation in recommending The Coast and we will certainly stay there again...

Great hotel, feels like brand new. Rooms are crystal clear and service is pretty good. The swimming pool view is absolutely stunning and pool bar is cool. Private beach with sun beds is steps away. Breakfast is really good, nice choice for all tastes.
Scooter can be rented on site. Car service is provided by the hotel, but prices would be really high compare to the taxi service.

SPA is a bit overpriced for the quality they deliver.
Room service is fast and efficient.

The room view really depends where you are. Some rooms face swimming pool, some - roofs of the villas in front.

Great place for relaxation and cocktail parties.

Do not expect Thai spirit or lovely details to remember. It’s just well thought place to relax with a great view from the pool

Dear Olga, Thank you very much for sharing your amazing review here on Tripadvisor and for choosing our modern Adults Only Resort here on Koh Samui. We are humbled to read that you had a great time with us. Our team was very happy to see that you fully enjoyed your room, our room service and our pool bar with the amazing view. Especially our kitchen team was really proud about your kind comment regarding the breakfast. We offer daily shuttle service to the Fishermans Village ( about 10 minutes) and Chaweng (about 25 minutes) and several times. The price is 50 THB per person per stop which is a very cheap price in comparison to the local taxis. The prices at the spa a higher than the average due to for example the high quality oils and certified massage therapists. Another option on a different price level is at the beach very close to the hotel. There you can get a massage for a very affordable price directly on the beach with the sound of the ocean :) Again, thank you very much from our whole team for staying with us.We would love to welcome you back very soon.

Beautiful hotel and grounds, staff all amazing.

The sun loungers always had towels on them but were never in use, there should be a better system whereby staff remove the towels if the sun loungers are not in use after a certain amount of time.

Food all lovely, club sandwich was the best on the lunch menu at the pool bar. Cocktails are good quality at the pool bar with buy one get one free at 2pm to 3pm for Happy hour, the mojito was the best there.

Breakfast in the mornings was also amazing, large choice of different foods and freshly made baked granola. Well worth a try, coffee made fresh to order also. It gets the full 5 stars from us, I'd return here again for a relaxing break.

We travelled to koh samui on February 2023. We decided to book a better hotel and room to really enjoy the last days in koh samui. After such good reviews we settled with Explorar. In general the experience was just okay due to some unfortunate events. We chose the room with a private “swimming pool”, paying a lot more for it, unfortunately the advertised pool was not one, but instead a “jacuzzi” with only two water jets and cold water because the pool/jacuzzi was always in the shadow. This only portrays cheating advertising to its costumers.
In such high end hotel one would expect a high end service, like in any establishment there are always good and bad service, but in a more exclusive hotel the Standards will consequently be higher. With this being said, the reception service to rent motorbikes, or even book a taxi were extremely confusing and complicated almost looking like our request was a lot to ask. They could not provide with other clear options available to rent a moto, or chose a different transfer, since the hotel cars were apparently already booked. The pool bar service could be more attentive, we would sit and nobody would come and take the request. Also it took them a lot of time to take the request and provide with it (for example: we waited for drinks 20min and food 45min, this note comes after staying in a 3stars hotel were we would sit and were attended immediately).
On the other hand, the quality of the food is not comparable with other places. The dinner options were extremely well prepared.
If we knew we probably would have chosen a standard room with balcony - it is cheaper the conditions pretty similar, therefore providing a better relation price/quality.

Dear Sara, Thank you very much for your valuable feedback and for choosing our modern Adults Only Resort to be part of your holiday, despite your disappointment. We regret that your stay wasn't enjoyable but will always try to use critical comments to see how we can improve or better advise future Guests. We'd therefore like to take the opportunity to reply to the 3 main points within your review. We are sorry to read that our Deluxe Plunge Pool room (Deluxe Double Room with Plunge Pool as describe on your chosen Online Travel Agent) appeared deceiving to you, as we feel our pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible; and we haven’t previously experienced Guests misunderstanding the size of this pool from the plunge pool term. We would like to express that businesses are not permitted to use the word “jacuzzi’ as this is a copyrighted brand name and so hotels generally use the terms spa-bath (usually above ground) or plunge-pool (if sunken into the ground). We do have pool villas available, but our plunge pool rooms are a value option, designed for lounging and cooling off after a day in the sun. We avoid and are quite certain that we do not use the term “swimming pool” in any of our descriptions for this room, as this would indeed only mislead people and cause us complaints and disappointed Guests. Again, we wish to use all feedback to see how we can better advise future Guests and so we will add the measured dimensions of all our plunge pools and pools to our room descriptions on all channels. We are quite surprised that your attempts to arrange a bike or taxi were confusing and complicated as our reception team have a good level of English and generally receive good feedback about their support to our Guests. However, we anticipate that our team may have ‘off days’ and so we provide printed Motorbike and Taxi info posters, available on notice boards and by our reception team for easy communication. Guests need only choose the preferred vehicle and booking period. We try to make this even more simple and convenient for Guest by having an exclusive partner who parks their available bikes in our carpark 24/7 and very rarely are booked out. They are then on-call to come, arrange the rental and explain all the functions, etc. Also, there is no passport or cash deposit needed like in many other resorts or rental shops, and we have a close partnership to ensure there are never any overcharges which we understand is a concern for all. If they are ever booked-out we will try our best to contact other outside rental companies in the area; but we hope Guests understand that their availability is seasonal and out of our direct control. Taxis and our complimentary shuttle services can be booked at our reception or with a call from your room. The times of our shuttle service or prices of our taxi service are visible on all our information boards spread around the hotel. If our complimentary shuttle service is fully booked our reception team can book a private taxi at your convenience. We are very sorry if these simple services have not been communicated well to you and for any shortcomings or confusion during this process. We would absolutely like to apologize for the long waiting time to taking and receiving your order at our Pool Bar. This is certainly not within our standards, and I know our F&B team feel equally disappointed to have left you waiting for so long. We have shared your feedback with the team and we will take this experience on board to continuously improve our service. Despite your disappointment we still wish to thank you for choosing Explorar Koh Samui to be part of your vacation. We are happy to read that you found our dinner options to be well prepared. Again, thank you very much from all of us and we would be very happy if you could give us a second chance someday to make things up to you. Warmest regards, Adam & The Team General Manager gm.kohsamui@explorarhotels.com

We stayed at this hotel for the first time back in May, it was so good we we back for a week in October.

Awesome private beach, and amazing staff.

Our first stay was in a beachfront pool villa. I thought it was a little on the pricey side we we booked, but once we arrived it was definitely worth it. The dipping pool made us feel like we had our own private beach, in the middle of a private beach.

On this last trip, we stayed in a room in one of the hotel buildings. Great view of the sea to wake up to.

The buffet breakfast was great, and the couple of times we had dinner in the hotel it was fine too.

On both trips we picked up a hire car at the airport on arrival, so getting around was very easy, it's about a 5-minute drive from Fisherman's Village and only about a 15 - 20 min drive from Central. The hotel does have a shuttle bus to and from Chaweng, but we didn't need it so cannot comment on it really.

The staff were really helpful, and the front desk helped book a table at 'Dining on the Rocks' which is part of the Sixth Sense resort on the other side of the island, highly recommend it! but you need to book a couple of days in advance.

The staff at the front desk even remembered to ask how our meal was when we came back in the evening after the meal two days later.

The gym is fairly functional and okay for most people, if you are into working out seriously then it could probably use a few more weights, but if you are going to Samui to work out, there are lots of gyms on the island, so not really an issue at all.

Overall a great hotel, cannot recommend it highly enough, we will definitely be back.

We spent 15 days in really pleasant and calm atmosphere. We found everything as expected, a nice room, hotel facilities and most of all - the great welcoming staff.
If you don’t want to leave the resort, you have all the necessary right around you: restaurant serving nice mix of thai and western meals, the pool bar, excellent pool and nice beach with umbrellas and sunbeans.
And if you want to leave this quiet paradise for a while, no problem: the pulsating places as Fishermans Village or Chaweng are just 20 minutes away. The front desk staff arrange everything with smile: shuttle, taxi or renting the scooter.
Even after couple of weeks back home we feel the positive atmosphere of this place. Thank you and keep going!

Tucked away down a quiet lane off the main ring road, facing absolutel beachfront, the hotel is thoughtfully designed, with clean lines, a modernist edge. The rooms are large and we'll thought out, with good quality linens, and all the necessary electrical connections including excellent and stable WiFi.
The fabulous pool area is the central star of the show, immaculately clean and inviting. Breakfast has a lot of variety, and the room service menu is also wide ranging and of a high standard. The staff deserve 6 stars! Nothing is too difficult, and they helped me with logistical problems promptly and politely. An excellent gym, unusual activities such as cooking and Thai boxing lessons! I wouldn't hesitate to return to Explorar

I had a room with a plunge pool. Please check for those if you want. The bathroom had a shower only.

"It’s near the airport so transfers are short. Our room was not as large as you might expect for a 5 star hotel. Small balcony too."
