The bar has a nice atmosphere with a good view from the sea and happy hour from 1800 (not sure when the happy hours end though). You can just sit and relax, enjoying the view while nurturing a nice cocktail. The Thai food here is ok but they make it mainly for tourist. As a Thai, we find it ok... More

We decided to visit this restaurant one night during our stay in Koh Samui as we'd heard so much about this resort but were sadly disappointed. We would have liked to try their signature restaurant Dining on the Rocks but unfortunately they didn't cater for kids. Anyways, the food here was good but the service very slow and lacklustre. It...

Whilst staying at Six Senses Koh Samui my wife and I had breakfast every day and dinner a number of times at this resort restaurant. The food is great with the breakfast buffet changing every day. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Views over the bay are spectacular while you are sitting and dining. Highly recommended.

We reserved a table via email prior to holiday and was offered dining on the rocks. I'm sure it's a lovely position and great food but having read previous reviews that it wasn't worth the money I also didn't fancy paying £500 for the privilege. So opted for dining on the hill. Despite not having our reservation and slight confusion... More

The Six Senses hotel looks beautiful and the restaurant is perched amongst the trees up on the hill with amazing views of the sunset. The restaurant has a nice setting, all decked out in bamboo and wood. But besides the setting and location, everything else was fairly average. The food was ok, but not as good as what we were...

We arrived at the restaurant at 5:30pm to dine while looking at whole sunset. It did not let us down, we saw the whole sunset while having a fabulous bottle of wine and dinner. We could see the whole process from bright to dark. The color of the sunset was amazing and it is the best view not to be... More

The location is superb. We watched the sun set, the whole setting is very relaxing, beautiful. Impressed by the fact they not only had a kids menu but an infant menu also - very much needed for us who were with a 3 year old and a 10 month old. I think the infant purees were the biggest success. Toddler... More

They specialize in Thai food, and the best part is the great view of the sunset during your dinner. Good selection of authentic Thai food.
