“Great infinity pool, beach and staff”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

This resort is very well run. It is an older resort but with everything in great working order. The infinity pool is about 20 meter from the ocean with a clean beach. The lounge chairs around the pool are very comfortable. Staff comes around often to see if you would like a drink. There is a restaurant by the pool which serves great drinks and good food. Happy hour starts at 5 pm when cocktails 50% off. It is a smaller resort and if you enjoy peace and quiet this is the place for you. It costs around $9 to go to Chaweng if you want lots of commotion and people. Fun to visit but we sure are happy we stayed at Saboey, . Lots of helpful staff too. Great private deck at the deluxe rooms with ocean view.

Room Tip: Do splurge on a villa or deluxe room. Most of those have ocean views.

Our adult family stayed here in January 2014. We had the two room villa.
Outstanding features were the room (clean and well provided for), the staff (lovely, friendly, welcoming), proximity to the beach, breakfast was delicious, the pool area is fantastic, and that Saboey is a relatively small place so never feels overcrowded.

I would return without a question.

I spent two days on Ko Samui and at the Saboey Resort.
Due to my Bronchitis I didn't really left the Resort so I can not truly judge about Ko Samui, but I really enjoyed my time at Saboey.
My Deluxe Room (No.12) was big, not very modern but clean and quiet although its placed close to the Entrance.
The Staff was very friendly, everyone of them. The were always very helpful and forthcoming to me.
I just had breakfast at the Resort, but that was good, I have no complains.
The Resort was also very clean, I really liked its shape, its green, has many trees and flowers and a perfect view to the ocean. The beach in front of us was also very clean.
After all I had the feeling to be finally in Paradise, but thats probably something everyone would say after getting from Bangkok to Ko Samui ;-)

Room Tip: I had a nice Deluxe Room, but if you want to be close to the Ocean, you have to book Ocean Bungalows

we spent two glorious weeks at this hotel at the end of November. The hotel location could not have been better, we were right on the edge of the beach. We had an Ocean Villa,it was luxurious
John the manager was absolutely great, nothing was too much trouble for him and his staff.
The breakfasts really set you up for the day, delicious. We ate out a couple of times but nothing compared to the evening meals here. Everything was as expected of this nice place. We would certainly go back there, possibly earlier than November though ( we got a bit of rain ). The chalet was cleaned every day and smelled fresh on our return everyday.The pool was just great to swim or lounge in. You could be at the deep end of the pool and just overlook the sea, marvellous. The bar/restaurant staff were always welcoming, especially, Rat, Pure, Nui and Hong. Thouroughly enjoyed our time there. John, you did a great job.

for our first stay in thailand i think we chose the best place possible to stay and feel very lucky for that, as it was the reviews that made me decide to stay here, and they were pretty spot on. I will ditto everything everyone else has said and will add that it is so peaceful and serene here, we have not left yet and are already planning our next visit. the beach is beautifully clean and it was a real challenge to decide which to swim in - beach or pool? so we simply alternated ! After a short but necessary visit to a very busy Chaweng we are sure that Saboey was the right choice for us. Jon and his staff are delightful and very helpful in all aspects. Well done team, we will miss you during the time between our visits.

Room Tip: ocean or beach villas are either right opposite the beach or the pool - cant go wrong with either as...

We really enjoyed our stay at Saboey resort and understand why people go back year after year. Its a short taxi ride away from the airport .As soon as you come through the entrance you can see how beautiful it is. We were greeted immediately with a cooling towel and welcome drink, while our bags were taken to our Villa.
The Villa were very clean and really large and well laid out, also, with great air conditioning. .
The staff were really friendly and helpful ,some of the best we had every meet. The breakfast was OK,a regular hotel breakfast.
Fisherman's Village is a 10 min away which has plenty of cheap restaurants. Defiantly go on Friday which is market day. .
The sea was warm and very clean, the staff clean the beach twice a day.
Our first visit to Thailand, we are glad we picked Saboey resort and suggest other people to go there too. We will be back again next year

Room Tip: suite are in the main building, but are huge and are quite low priced

My partner and I traveled to Koh Samui last month from New Zealand. We had spent 2 very busy days in Singapore before we got to Samui so we were quite tired and still getting used to the hot weather! And so we were ready for a relaxing holiday. When we arrived at our hotel we were greeted by a delicious cold welcome drink and smiling faces. The staff didn't know english perfectly but they knew enough to answer all of our questions, order rental cars for us and recommend good places to go. The resort was beautiful! Amazing pool and the beach was great to swim in. The area had a lot of restaurants and mini marts but wasn't a big area which meant it was nice and quiet and relaxing compared to Chaweng or Lamai. The room at the Saboey was massive (and it was the cheapest room there!). It was perfectly air conditioned and had all the facilities you would expect. It was cleaned perfectly every day and they even lay out my nighties for me :) (cute touch). The breakfast and dinner and Saboey was delicious and really made us fall in love with Thai food (wish we had done their cooking class!!). Our favourite thing about Saboey was the size of it. We met a few other couples there who were lovely but as it is only a small resort we didn't have to battle 100's of people for the pool and there were no screaming kids running around!! We went to dinner at some of the bigger resorts in Samui and felt relieved we weren't staying there as the kid factor often doesn't make for a relaxing time. It was our first time in Asia and the Saboey resort definitely helped to make us feel welcome and comfortable and have an amazing journey!! Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break. If there was just one thing I would comment on it would be the beds. They were quite hard (apparently that is down to the fact that people living in Asia prefer harder beds). We got used to it though :)
