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.

Wonderful staff. I went to trip on a honeymoon to Koh Samui with my wife. We were staying at Silavadee and decided to have seafood for dinner. On the way back from the laundry service, we saw the Renaissance Hotel's seafood promotion board and parked...the car to visit for checking. We heard a friendly explanation about their cuisine and decided to have a dinner at Renaissance Resort due to their kindness and curiosity about food. The male staff in the attached pic recommended us the sea bass dish, but my wife wanted the crab curry and we didn't order the sea bass dish, but this nice and clever staff gave us a chance to try to have the sea bass tasty, and after finding out that we were on a honeymoon, he gave us a chance to try to have a dish of Thailand Sticky rice along with mango as a gift. This impressed us and made us new fans of Renaissance Samui Resort. Such nice staffs are a blessing to Renaissance Samui.More

I had dinner at TawaNN with a good friend on 18/05/2014 and I have to say it was the best meal in Koh Samui. The restaurant is a bit hidden (you have to walk through the lobby of the hotel and then around the complex)...but it's worth every effort. The food was GREAT and the service from ART & AUM was wonderful. Both were more than accommodating and made our evening perfect. Thank you so much for the amazing dinner.More

Outside of how wonderful the food was, I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff there. Art was our main point of contact and he was such a delight, funny, and very personable! Fern and cream also deserve a mention for being very sweet...and making our dining experience, extremely enjoyable. My partner had pretty specific requests and they were able to accommodate everything that he needed. It was such a wonderful experience our last evening.More

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance Koh Samui during our third stop on our trip to Thailand in April 2024. I live with severe food allergies to peanut, sesame, corn (including cornstarch, corn syrup, etc) and hazelnut; and I’m also a vegetarian. The...entire food and beverage team was made aware of my dietary restrictions as soon as we arrived. We ate at tawaNN our first night, and, while there weren’t many vegetarian options on the menu, the staff helped me to order a dish off menu and ensured it was made free of allergens and vegetarian (no fish or oyster sauce). The next night there was a BBQ buffet on the beach to celebrate Songkran, so we ate at tawaNN again, and this time, they had a special vegetarian menu for me. The food was delicious, and because of that combined with the great care that the team took to ensure I could eat safely, we returned here each night of our stay. Art, Fern, Aun and the whole team at tawaNN have gone out of their way each night to ensure I had safe, delicious meals. Seldom have I felt so taken care of while dining out. I would return to Tawann and the Renaissance Koh Samui again and again solely because of their great care and hospitality.More

After hearing about the reviews my wife decided to book a table for my birthday. She was asked if we wanted a pick up from our hotel to which she replied yes. They phoned back about 20 minutes later to confirm our reservation and pick...up. On the day, no pick up and when we phoned, no record of our booking. They then asked if we could make our own way there, however I was not going to give them money after such a poor show, so we went elsewhere.More

Quite boring. The scenery was amazing and the Waiters were Nice but the shrimps still had Their intestinal tract inside and my pad thai was just boring and tasteless compared to all other pad thais i have had. My wifes braised beef cheeks tasted solely...of cinnamon and nothing else.More

We ate there three times during our stay (it really was that good) and I can honestly say it’s the best Thai restaurant I’ve ever eaten in - Nothing else needs to be said really

We expected this to me the dining high point of our visit to Koh Samui. It was not. The location is great though would have been better for lunch rather than dinner as it was dark. The entrées were good as were the rum and...lime cocktails. However, it took much too long for the cocktails to be delivered (at least 10 minutes). The red wine we ordered was delivered chilled - I would have expected the wait staff to ask if we wanted the wine chilled or not as has been done in other restaurants. The main course was a disaster. One of there signature dishes - whole seabass - was cut up into chunks and deep fried - to the point that it was tasteless and chewy. The pad thai was ordinary. The service was slow and we had trouble communicating. And of course the bill was very high which we expected but not worth the quality of the meal we got.More

I went to dinner with two friends from our fitness retreat. Two of us had the lobster fish and the other baked sea bass. From the amuse-bouse,appetiters and main course everything was delicious. The team of Sai,Mint, Name provided great service and was very attentive...during our meal service. Also the door person and golf cart driver was pleasant and helpful. While we missed the sunset, the location is perfect for a date or just friends hanging out with a view of the ocean. This is upscale resort and be prepared for higher than usual food prices. Our lobster meal was $1,950 baht. We spent about $2500 baht a piece. 😀More

AFAIK, no. They are a Hotel Restaurant and have no own website, and on the hotel page is only a description, not the menu. So unless you find a picture taken by another visitor ... no chance.

Yes. I don't recall for the starters, but they had a vegetarian main courses section on the menu.
