My friend and I booked this hotel based on previous reviews of the resort. After having spent 2 nights there I am afraid to say that our expectations were not met. The resort itself is very small and is based in a quiet part of the island. We struggled to find somewhere pleasant to eat and ended up returning to Chaweng on our second night. The pool is very small, something which is not conveyed in the pictures and sadly, breakfast was very poor.
This being said, the staff working there were nice and provided you don't have high expectations you will be fine. Unfortunately for us, previous reviews were (in our opinion) extremely misleading.

Hello punnpreeda

If the full score is 10, so 9.5 is my personal satisfactory score.

Location:
- The location is very close to airport, only takes 5 mins director to resort.
- All rooms are design right on the swimming pool, bar, and beach in privacy.
- Very convenience to walk along the street for massage, shoping, and eating, enjoying night life as well.
- Especially close to the pier easy for joining boat trip to island.

Room Factilites:
- Overall "Clean and tidy" is my expected target , ALL IN ONE in a room.
- An astray, and complimentary drinking water should be provide and free for refill is much more better.
- Satellie TV Channel is one the most concern facility.
- Special design in wash room which using a wall to split the bath room into 2 separate areas. However, little leaking was found after show but seems not serious.

Food beverage:
- Breakfast was great
- Not only strong enough in local THAI food, variable choices of food delicious.
- Very special and wonderful mixology hidding beside in a small poor bar. Excellent skill on mixed drinks.

Staff Services:
- We are welcomed with lovely and friendly staffs.
- Staffs who work in Tourist information desk are very helpful on recommandation to inquiries of guests clearly.

Overall, I got a nice and quite relaxing vacation in Punnpreeda Hip during this couple of days. Hotel looks trendy which build in a beautiful garden and nice view beach front restaurant.
Surely, I will stay and visit Samui at Punnpreeda on my future planning shortly!

Room Tip: Hip villa was great.

We bought a voucher for our honeymoon here and could not have made a better choice for our first trip to Thailand and to Koh Samui....Because of this island and Punnpreeda we will never forget our honeymoon and are definitely going to return to this resort.

Staff became more like family and friends and were always happy to assist with smiles. Food was traditional Thai foods and well prepared. Breakfast was amazing and the best with a full spread from thai curries to panckaes and freshly cooked eggs and toast.

location was amazing, better than chaweng and other parts of the island in that it was not too busy and gives one a chance to experience a real Samui Island Life; beaches are not touristy giving the people staying there a chance to relax on untouched clean and heavnely beaches.

It was also my husbands birthday during our honeymoon and staff threw a suprise party that even took me by suprise, they are amazing people, kind and friendly and always willing to go the extra mile and to make your stay feel amaizng.

They should be a 7 Star hotel because i will never want to stay anywhere else when on Samui.

A big thank you to, K.Nid, Bee, Bun, Kwang, Noinar, Alex and Arm...and apologies for leaving anyone out, you have all showed us what heave on eart can be with Punnpreeda on Koh Samui.

The room was amazing, we arrived early and was offered an alternate room till ours was ready. that was very considerate and kind and the type of service you can expect from Punnpreeda. Our room was amazing, spacious, mini bar stocked with waters, juice and cooldrink daily. Air conditioners were amazing and saved us from the heat. Beds were always and clean. The origami styled elephant towels were cute and these tiny details made all the difference. Floors are a concrete polish design and helped with the heat, making the room cooler and giving us a down to earth feel of Thailand.

We received a free massage and free cocktail and dinner was a lovely extra on our deal.

Altogether, Punnpreeda best resort we have ever stayed at and a Big Thank you to the Punnpreeda team for a dream getaway!

The experience here was the best right from the get go! From the moment we stepped into the hotel, we knew everything was going to go just perfect.
The staff are SUPER nice and althought some of them are not very good with english, they try hard or get someone who can speak it. Communications - Check!

The rooms are super cozy, we got one of the villas, the bed was phenomenal. you have hot water, the rooms are cleaned daily, and done VERY well. Rooms - Check!

The food at the restaurant is so-so, didn't mind their dinner much. The breakfast is also ok, two items change everyday, and the usual sausages, bacon, eggs, cereal, etc. stay the same. The drinks are really good though, and super cheap during happy hour. Drinks - Check!

Just to the left of the hotel are two restaurants, both across each other, one called U2, the other I cant remember, that serve phenomenal thai foods. Their red curries are TO DIE FOR. After eating here, you wouldn't ever need to go anywhere! Food - Check!

The pool is uber relaxing, and with the beach mere jumps away from the pool, its like the lap of comfort. Relaxation - Check!

The hotel has a very tropical feel, lots of plants and streams running everywhere. The only down side are the mosquitoes at night, but that is the case for every place in Samui. DON'T forget the mosquito repellant when you go to Samui! Jungle Feel - Check!

Don't bother packing medical supplies, because they are everywhere, one right across the hotel.

The only downside I felt was the distance from the 'happening' places - which is only Chaweng. But for 100B per person, you can get on a tuk tuk and get there (FYI - transport in Samui is the most expensive item). Sometimes taxies will give you the same rate if you have two or more people. If you are comfortable on a scooter, that is THE best option. They don't have a gym, but thats fine. They don't have a spa in the hotel, but there is one just across the street which is unbelievable, cheap and very friendly. Amenities - Check!

Overall, this was a very very good experience and I will always go back to Punnpreeda. It is the perfect destination for couples who want to have a quiet and relaxing holiday.

Just FYI, the beach is absolutely empty for the two of you at night.... ;)

Room Tip: The place is generall quite, so you shouldn't have a problem with noice. We stayed at 505, which...
