We splurged on a pool villa for a week in January, and had an absolutely wonderful experience at Tongsai Bay. The staff is terrific, friendly, helpful and welcoming. We had great luck booking a sailing charter with the help of the tours desk, and enjoyed the personal greetings from general manager, Mark. We loved the cooking class, with a tour of the organic gardens with Head Chef Robert, and thoroughly loved preparing a five-course meal on the gorgeous deck with Senior Sous-Chef Kak.
The hotel and facilities are excellent, so well maintained you wouldn't know it's an older property. Our villa was lovely, spacious inside and even more so outside, with a huge deck with dining table, loungers, good-sized pool, huge bathtub and sleeping gazebo. The property is tucked into a private cove in the quieter north end of Samui, but the hotel is a quick ten minute walk into the village of Cheong Mon for a change of scenery.
The restaurants are all excellent, and work hard to provide a variety of experiences throughout the course of a week so that you don't become tired of dining in.
All in all, a great place for a relaxing holiday with all the perks!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more less
