“It's all about location”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Just had a most enjoyable 10 night stay at the Hansar. Not the plushest 5 star hotel but one with probably the best location on the island. Right next to a beach (sand is a bit harsh on the feet – only Kiwis can walk on it!) and right next to Fisherman’s village (make sure your trip includes a Friday night for the market). The room (with shower) was quite spacious and very clean, Bigger rooms (with bath) are available at an extra cost. The pool is excellent; always warm, not crowded and has a great view. Staff were all genuinely friendly and very helpful. Breakfast and food in the restaurant were both good, but it is cheaper eating out in Fisherman’s village. Happy hour was great, but beware it can prove expensive if you try and attend everyone happy hour! The half day trip (arranged with the hotel) around the island was a hit with everyone. All in all a 5 star experience

Room Tip: High up and facing the sea.

Stayed at the Hansar for 10 nights. I give it 5 stars. We had a XL Seaview Room. A little expensive but was a lovely size with 4 poster king size bed. Granite bath in middle of room so no privacy but romantic. Only down fall is toilet not private. Able to see anyone sitting on it from room as glass was clear. Needs to be readdressed as everyone likes a bit of privacy. The room was cleaned daily. Bed was very comfortable. Balcony impressive with lovely sea view. All staff were wonderful from reception, spa, dining, room cleaning and pool side. Cant praise them enough. Nothing was to much trouble. The staff really are an asset to the hotel. The swimming pool is fabulous and really needed to cool down during the day. Breakfast was tasty and varied. I enjoyed it every day and never ate the same thing twice. Happy hour with cocktails by the pool was a high light. Fishermans Village a two minute walk away where you can purchase most things. Restaurants were very good. All in all I would return to this hotel if given the opportunity.

I've given this resort 5 stars for overall value for mone. It is probably 4.5 stars by hotel standards worldwide, however for the room price it is exceptional hence why I'm giving it five star rating here. The staff are beautiful, the rooms all have pool views and I believe they all have partial or full ocean view too. Our room was third flow with incredible ocean view. The pool is very large all in sun, no shaded areas but ample sun lounges around. Great service at pool bar with three happy hours. The restaurant serves great quality meals at reasonable hotel prices. Approx 300-600 thai baht for most lunch dishes, (10- 20 $AUD.) Dinner is a bit more expensive. It's a one minute stroll to the fishermans village, perfect location. No need to leave the hotel / fishermans village region at all.

We stayed at the Hansar for 5 nights in April at the seaview room.

Pros:
*Nice modern design, nice lighting design all over the hotel at night.
*Professional SPA
*Excellent ingredients in breakfast (although it's not the riches breakfast we encounter in Samui.
*Good Pool with nice in-pool beds.
*Relative professional services.
*Room - Comfort bed, nice shower concept (look at cons), nice design, large closet.
*Clean room and facility is maintained good.

Cons
*The big down - the shower is part of the room with no door or any camouflage ,it's all separated by glass at studio concept room., that mean no privacy at all in this small room!! while sometimes it's nice to share this experience with your partner. we didn't feel comfort to have it for 6 days.
*Same for toilet. just in this case you'll have small sliding door made of Rattan (fabric which isn't 100% solid)
*Breakfast is above average but not in the top 5 of Samui.
*Pick-up and drop-off at check-in & check-out or any transfer is at charge (500b each) at 5 start hotel we used to complimentary for the at least check-in\out.
*Only 1 sink, 2 is standard at most 5 stars hotels.
*All the hotel is design as open spaces, including the reception ,this prevent any air conditioning installation, at 35 C degrees it could be a nightmare.
*The hotel is 3 floor tall with no elevator. and only 3 stairwell so we had to walk about 50 m in the hotel then climb those 3 floors each time.
*No one ask us how was our stay at check-out.

We stayed for 4 nights at the Hansar Samui and it is one of the nicest resorts we have stayed in. Beach outlook is stunning, great views from all rooms, and location near the fishing village is perfect, not too far from nice places to eat or markets on Friday night, but still peaceful away enough from the crowds. Attention to detail at this hotel was excellent - turndown service at night with choccies, complimentary drinking water at pool bar during the day a plus, and the service at the bar and breakfast very good. A fantastic stay!

Got back yesterday from this lovely place where we spent one week. Completely relaxed, we enjoyed our stay very much.
The hotel is nice and clean, not too big (so not too many people) and close to the fisherman's village (walking distance 5') with lots of shops and restaurants (especially once a week with a street market).
You can choose to either stay at the swimming pool or at the beach.
The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, nice.
If you're looking for a place to stay in Koh Samui, don't look any further, this is it.
