“A Totally Relaxing Place To Stay”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

The resort is located at the end of Boput beach, a quiet area and nice clean beach. The resort has 1- 3 bedroom bungalows in well kept gardens and plenty of shade trees. Most of the bungalows are away from the main road making them quiet at night. Our bungalow was very clean and comfortable with a nice hot shower. The beds are very comfortable with nice linen and cleaned daily. Just a stroll away was the hotel restaurant right next to the beach and swimming pool. A fantastic buffet breakfast served daily with fresh fruits, eggs, omelettes and other hot dishes as well, and was complementary.
The resort is about a 20 minute walk to Fisherman's Village where all the action is in Boput Beach. Especially on Friday nights when the whole area becomes a large night market. All kinds of foods, entertainment, shopping etc. try the lady with the stall making fresh Mango salads, mmmm! And the Mojito bar making hundreds of drinks like you would get in Cuba.

Room Tip: Get a bungalow in the middle of the gardens, and be prepared to be woken by the birds singing outsid...

We went there during low season in October as a family of four. The resort has only one bungalow which has two rooms with interconnecting door, so you need to make a booking in advance if you are a family with kids.The resort is right by the beach and has a to-die-for restaurant location. Offers a wide variety of dishes from the local and western cuisine. As everywhere in Koh Samui, western dishes are more expensive than the local ones. But when in Rome...So stick with the local dishes. They have a mean lime-shake in the restaurant, you should try it.
The pool is big enough, and the pool and all the rest of the facilities are very clean. The little fresh flower decorations in the public toilets are very cute. The decorations in the rooms are simple but functional. You can move the beds any way you like in case you have kids and you need to move the beds next to the wall so the kids don't fall. In general the place is safe for kids, but be careful with the steps that lead down to the beach from the pool area. No facilities for kids, and it is to be expected from a small resort the size of Sandy.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. The beach in front of the resort is not very wide. However since we went there during low season, chaise-lounges were empty most of the time. High-season might be different story.
The resort entrance is right by the main road that circles the island. There are a few restaurants close-by, but our favorite was certainly Fisher King which is owned by a Dutch gentleman and his Thai wife. Although everything we tried was good, try shark. If you never tried it before, you are in for a surprise.
The resort itself is only 5-10 mins away from the big shopping malls, wet market, and the fisherman's village restaurants. There are two convenience stores only walking distance from the main entrance.
The island offers many attractions from elephant rides to waterfalls whose details can be found at the resort's reception. If you are ok for right handed driving as in UK, and the countless motorbikes do not bother you, rent a car for sight seeing, it will find it quite rewarding. It is impossible to get lost, and once you are away from the city centre, the traffic thins out.
All in all, we had great time in Koh Samui and the Sandy Resort.

We booked our three first nights in Koh Samui here after reading good reviews. It is a good place to stay so we prolonged our stay one night before moving on to Mae Nam (The Hammock) and Koh Phangan (Fanta Resort). I would recommend the superior bungalows, it is worth the small price difference. The breakfast buffet is really good and one extra bonus was free afternoon coffee with cookies at 16.00. Appreciated. The massage pavillon is just above the beach and you can afford getting a massage everyday. Highly recommended! The fresh fruit shakes like coconut, mango, pinapple from the bar are very refreshing as everywhere in Koh Samui! The staff were all very friendly. You can walk in to Fisherman Village where there are lots of restaurants and shops, although it takes about half an hour.

Room Tip: Superior bungalows are closer to the beach large and comfortable. The standard bungalows are closer...

We stayed just 2 nights and didn't want to leave!! The bungalow was quite basic but supplied with robes, slippers, hair-drier, toiletries, water in the fridge, air-con, comfy beds, hot water...what more could you want!! Breakfast was amazing, as was afternoon tea/coffee & biscuits at 4pm (foc). location, grounds, staff all excellent and a good stroll along the beach to Fishermans Village for some late shopping, restaurants,pubs, street food etc. We ate in The lodge, overlooking the beach which was excellent and so cheap.

Room Tip: Our bungalow was the cheapest and furthest from the beach but it was no problem, a pleasant walk thr...

We stayed 6 nights here 18th-23rd January. Paid extra for a superior villa and we got the first bungalow nearest the pool, beach and restaurant, excellent. The rooms do look a bit jaded but we had everything we needed. Housekeeping was great, fresh towels every day and toiletries replenished. Shower was adequate, always hot but a small shower head. Breakfast not great, lunches were fine, and the twice we had dinner there it was nice, however the kitchen is a fair walk from the restaurant and by the time it came to the table it was almost cold. Think the waiters should put covers over the food to try and keep it hot. The pool didn't get much sun as there was a million trees surrounding the area, so had to juggle a bit to get some sunshine, and it didn't look very inviting, never saw anyone use it, people preferring the sea, which was five steps down. The massage area is great, quite private, so no-one watching you being heaved about by these tiny girls, very relaxing and very well priced. People came from other hotels to use them as their hotels prices were stupid. Also had a manicure and pedicure, great also. All in all a good place to stay for the price and would probably return there.

Room Tip: If you want to be near the pool and beach, choose a superior bungalow, not much more expensive

We stayed four nights in a standard bungalow. The restaurant and pool area were lovely, backing into the beach, the breakfast was very good and the staff pleasant. The grounds, public areas and reception area are immaculate, however the rooms are a bit tired. We barely had any hot water in the shower and very poor water pressure. A bit of updating of the rooms wouldn't go amiss. Overall we had a pleasant stay and for the price of US$30 per night for 2 people including breakfast can't really complain.

Just got back from here from a 2 night stay. Having being on many trips to the islands around Thailand and Samui in all ranges of accomodation this has got to rate as one of the best in terms of value for money. 15 minutes from Chaweng (200 baht cab ride each way) and 20 minutes from the airport (300 baht) it is very close to everything but feels like you are on a deserted island. I booked through Agoda for 15 euro a night and for what you get its really good value (stayed in very similar chain hotel places at 5 times the cost). The food is also very good (thai particularly) and you are right next door to some really excellent restaurants (Zazen?). Perfect place for couples wanting to relax. The beach is nice (not as nice as Chongmon though as the sand is quite grainy) and the fishermans village which is walking distance has a few nice bars and restaurants. Would have no trouble recommending.
