We knew that Chaweng Beach is the center of entertainment on Koh Samui and could be noisy but we where pleasantly surprised when we entered Poppies. It felt like stepping into a Thai home. Friendly staff welcomed us with a garland and led us through a beautiful garden to our cottage. The room provided everything we needed for a relaxed...

Really fantastic property....not much to say that hasn't already been said by others...the cottages, grounds, beach, and breakfast were all first rate. Level of service is very high, yet not intrusive or stuffy. James, the GM, is always visible and it's obvious that he and his staff care about the guest experience. We were a bit skeptical prior to booking,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali, Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location. ... more   less
