“5 star as it should be.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in the service was second to none all the staff were fantastic, I would like to say a special thank you to nick for saving our holiday from disaster after we were due to stay ay the mantra resort for 12 days but we left after 5 days you cannot compere the mantra with the bo phut resort this hotel is right on the beach 10 mins walk to fishermans village the rooms were great we stayed 2 nights in a jaccuzzi room that was fun then we had 5 nights in a pool villa. we tried both resturants in the hotel and they were both great as was breakfast don't bother looking at other hotels if you are going to bo phut stay here you will love it.

Room Tip: they all looked great but the Jacuzzi room was very good

This is our 5th visit to this hotel and it is by far the most wonderful experience on so many levels. Not only is the resort fabulous, but the people and the service are outstanding. One year it was my birthday and they'd found that out by looking at my passport. They sang happy birthday at breakfast and delivered a huge chocolate cake to our room! As we are return guests, they have a photo of us in a frame by the bedside when we go back each year and even print out in flowers, 'welcome home' on the bed! This is usually accompanied with a massive fruit bowl and a bottle of our favorite wine! This year they bought me a super bunch of flowers and also gave us Bo Phut polo shirts to take home and a funny monkey soft toy! Obviously all this won't happen on your first stay, but this is our 5th year and we are so looking forward to going back again next year. We stay in a garden villa and it's outstanding. The resort is right on the beach and you can use the windsurfer/canoes etc. It's the best experience Ko Samui can offer - seriously!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous, but try one of the garden villas. They are all freestanding and set in lush...

My husband and I recently spent six nights of our honeymoon at the Bo Phut Resort & Spa in Koh Samui and had an amazing time. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left Koh Samui, the hotel staff; reception, porters, waiting staff etc. could not have made us feel any more comfortable and relaxed. Our accommodation was fantastic and had a private pool, a free upgrade given to us to celebrate our honeymoon. I have no complaints about the hotel and would recommend the Bo Phut Resort & Spa to anybody wanting to holiday in Koh Samui.

We visited Koh Samui this summer, and we checked in at Bo Phut Resort & Spa because we have heard many great things about it. I really don`t know where to start describing this wonderful place. One of the best things about it for me was the fact that it is located on the beach, but the overall outlook of the hotel itself is also breathtaking. The atmosphere here is highly intimate and romantic, but it also has all the facilities you could possibly want. I would definitely suggest everyone to stay here, and I`m sure no one will be disappointed.

I'm tempted to not write a review of this resort as we LOVE it and don't want it to get too popular! :)

Having said that - we love our stays at the Bo Phut Resort and Spa. The service is impeccable, the staff friendly and the ambience just what you need for a relaxing and rejuvenating getaway.

We have stayed here twice now and would have no hesitation booking there again.

Now that we are home I can safely judge that the Bo Phut Spa & resort is the ideal hotel to stay at on Koh Samui. It is beautiful and has a great location only a few hundred yards walk along the beach to the fishermans village and a short taxi ride to the much busier and commercialised Chaweng should you want to have a much busier late night.

We arrived mid afternoon and were immediately greeted by friendly welcoming staff who gave us a cold towel, a drink and a comfy couch to sit on while we were checked in. We were booked into one of the garden villas and one of the reception girls walked us to our villa while pointing out key parts of the hotel. Our villa was located 20 yards from the pool and 10 yards from the beach and was perfectly quiet at all times.

The villa itself was large and had real quality furnishings. Fresh fruit was delivered daily if eaten and changed frequently even if it wasn’t. There is a large living area with couch and seats, the bed is enormous and comfortable and all electrics can be controlled from the panel next to the bed. Every evening the turn-down service would plug in the mosquito repellant and we never experienced any mosquito problems in the villa at all. The bathroom is enormous and the choice of complementary soaps and shower gels was excellent. THe maid service was absolutely flawless each and every day.

The Villa also has a DVD player which on its own doesnt warrant comment, however, the hotel has an extensive DVD collection and its worth looking into it for late night DVD watching.

Breakfast was an excellent affair,served at the pool and the buffet selection really does have something for everyone. Every day there is an Asian special selection ranging from Dim Sum to some weird and wonderful curry dishes.

We ate here for lunch a couple of times when attempting to escape from the sun during the hotter times of the day and each time the food was fresh and actually reasonably priced for a hotel. The same can be said for the drinks bill and each day there are two happy hours with 50% off. The poolside servers are always available and are quick and pleasant. I would recommend eating from the beach sellers, the hotel don’t mind you bringing their food and drinks back to the pool area and the food is so cheap and so tasty it would be criminal not to take advantage of the grilled corn and fresh papaya salad! We never experienced any problems getting a poolside bed during our 12 days here and that was regardless of what time we hit the pool at.

The beach is beautiful, clean and the water is warm though not clear.


The hotel grounds are beautifully manicured gardens and are constantly being tended to.

The hotel location is perfect. A 400 yard walk along the beach brings you to the Bo Phut fishermans village. It isnt really a fishermans village now but instead has a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants without being overly commercial and rowdy. We pretty much walked along here every night and the walk along the beach is lovely.Even if you want to visit other parts of the island this is a great base and the hotel run transport service is both cheap and safe. Something to consider compared to the local taxi’s as the roads in Koh Samui are dreadfully unsafe!

A special mention has to go to the staff, they are truly exceptional! They will go completely out of their way to help and even though tips are normally included in the bill I couldn’t help giving more.

My wife used the Spa and complemented it highly. Upon check out day our flight was very late in the day and the hotel allowed us a room in the Spa free of charge to shower etc…

If you are looking for a great hotel in Koh Samui then I cant recommend the Bo Phut Resort and Spa highly enough.

Room Tip: The Garden Villas are great and better located than the plunge pool villas

For those who haven't been to Koh Samui, Bo Phut is on the northern side of the island, not in the central town centres of Chaweng or Lamai so you're away from the backpackers - hooray!
This is a beautiful resort - well manicured, clean, nice pool and beach access (the beach isn't crystal clear unfortunately), plus 2 restaurants.
This resort will cater to your wishes - I'm not used to having attentive staff who clean your room twice a day, will always greet you wherever you go and help you with the smallest things like putting a towel on a pool bed... I'm writing this as I was unprepared for it and it can be a bit confronting to those not used it.
The spa is beautiful and the masseurs excellent and professional, we got a free jet lag 15 massage on our day of arrival... very appreciated after a 12 hour trip from Germany!
