My boyfriend and I found this hotel on a Groupon promotion. It was quite cheap so we got a few days off and went there.
We stayed at the Hip Resort and our room was the Pool Villa (They have 2 hotels with the same name but one is the hip resort and the other one is just Punnpreeda.
It was absolutely breathtaking!
Everything was just perfect. We had the time of our lives there thanks to the hotel and the EXTREMELY helpful and friendly staff.. They were just amazing!
The breakfast was mediocre, nothing really special, but the food in the restaurant was really good. I highly recommend their spring rolls and lasagna.
The Hip Villa is not located where the party's at. It was very relaxing and perfect but if you're looking for party then that's not the place to be. We rented a car and it's a 15/20 mins drive to Chaweng but if you want to go to the Full Moon Party that is the place to be.
Next door (literally) there's a company who takes people to the other island for the f
There's a 7/11, drugstore and restaurants in front of the hotel so the location was great.
I just wish i could live there!

Room Tip: Get the Pool Villas if you have the opportunity to ;)

Really loved this hotel. The staff were excellent and helpful, the music at the bar is very repetitive especially when u spend a bit of time down there by the pool.
Not alot to do there and not many restaurants nearby, if you want a busy place to stay dont stay here, fantastic for quite and relaxing.
It was lovely and clean, if we ever have the change to return we would defiantly stay there again.

We were enjoyed staying this small hip resort. Small but nice. if you expect a big 5 star, it will not be your need. Property itself was small. However, with reasonable price they charged, we loved it so much. We feel like we are staying home and very cozy here. Sunset atmosphere was so fantastic with a great pina colada. Breakfast was fine and delicious.

Service was five star as my expectation and need. They were so helpful and nice. Thank you for making a great holiday for us.

Room Tip: Villa was great with garden and seaview

We had a great promotional rate (~30 EUR) but this hotel was definitely worth more. It was organized in small villas which were very nice and clean, no luxury however. the restaurant was good but more pricey than other restaurants around. Breakfast was included and was very good. The hotel is on the beach, however the beach was not good and actually there were no people staying there.

We stayed 4 nights at the Punnpreeda Hip Resort in July 2012. Personally I did not exactly like the location nor quality of the beach. For those who are not party animals and want a quiet resort with a nice beach, I'd recommend you look around Lamai.

We arrived at the resort in the morning and was offered a complimentary upgrade to the hip villa. Took our time to explore the area nearby the hotel before our room was ready and found there was not much around the area except for a few uninteresting restaurants and convenience stores, the beach wasn't much to shout about either. The hotel's generator broke down the day we checked in so there was no water nor electricity. Kudos to the staff and management for arranging to move all guests to the nearby Deva Samui resort which was newer and nicer, for the night, while they resolved the problem. The generator issue was fixed in less than 12 hours and we were all moved back to Punnpreeda Hip the next day.

The staff at the reception and restaurant were very helpful and always smiling, the room is clean but old, floor tiles were cracked, dim lights in the bathroom and bedroom, the resort had obviously seen better days and is badly in need of some updating. Our shower cubicle drains very slowly and tended to flood. Our request for 2 extra pillows (the room had 2 rather flat pillows on the bed, and one similar one without the case in the wardrobe) was unfortunately unsuccessful, the lady who answered our call said the resort was full and they had no extra pillows to provide us with. I ended up asking for an additional pillow case. Breakfast buffet was fruits, cereal, an omelette station, sliced bread and croissants, ham, bacon, sausage, french toast/pancakes, on some mornings a local padthai or stirfry dish. Fruit juices tasted rather diluted and coffee was quite bad...

I wish i could say the staff's hospitality compensated for all the experience was lacking in terms of amenities and quality of experience in terms of resort condition and food quality/variety, the efforts of the staff here, but for the price we paid, which was about Sgd160/night from Agoda, I had expected better and is unlikely to stay here again...
