We have been to Tongsai Bay four times because we love it so much and part of me wonders why I am writing this review as it is the tranquility that attracts us back each time and we wouldn't want too many people in the know ! However I err on the side of generosity
as the hotel is just the right size to feel exclusive and keeps its integrity even during the major holiday times. We stay in the cottages which are nestled in the fabulous gardens - it is set on quite a slope but you can ring for a buggy at any time to take you to beach or restaurant .The staff are so friendly and obliging and the food is fantastic ... we love the fact there is no unwanted music emanating from the eating or public areas during the day - just some subtle stuff during the evening. Having said that it's not completely without life as they put on special themed evenings such as full moon dinners on the beach, Thai nights and barbecues. The local town is 15 minutes away by taxi if you want a change but we find we rarely do as we can't drag ourselves away from feeling so cosseted in such gorgeous surroundings. Look out for Mark the assistant manager, his relaxed but professional manner sets the tone of the whole place ... ask for Lan's special yoghurt drink at breakfast and sit back in the colonial style dining room , with palm trees and the sea in front of you and be prepared to grind to a very relaxing halt.
- 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
