We came across Sea Dance entirely by chance, as we were looking for a drink, after having got lost on our mopeds. The resort is beautifully designed with great attention to detail, but what makes it extra special is it's owner and the staff. After meeting Poy, us grown ups came back 2 days later for a cooking experience with Toy (the chef), while our children had a lesson in how to make passion fruit mojitos with Kwan. To round off the perfect day, we also went sea kayaking. We all had such a great time! Thank you to everyone at Sea Dance!

I stayed with my wife and three kids at Sea Dance resort for 5 days in July 2014 and had a great time. We had two round cottages, one with an extra bed.
The design of the cottages is extremely nice. Outside bathroom connected to the cottage makes it perfect.
The resort is located right at the beach, a walk from our cottage to the sea was half a minute or so. There's free wifi with good reach.

All is very clean. They spray against musquito's around the cottages. Swimming pool is clean and nice. It is not a pool where the kids should jump in and out and make lots of noise, I had to tell them keep it a bit calm, but they enjoyed it a lot.

Food in the restaurant is a bit more expensive then the avarage thai restaurant on the street, but the setting is so nice and the quality of the food is very very good. Value for money. Theres the option of having the food at the sandy beach, which is also very nice.
Their Passion Mogito is the cocktail that you should definitely try. They are experts in that, for a very good price.

Breakfast is included and is OK,. The only thing I was missing was an egg as a standard to your breakfast. But you can order it.

Poy and staff where very friendly and helpfull. All of them. You feel really welcome.

The only disadvantage is the beach in front of the resort: it is not sandy as it is in Chaweng for instance, there is stones and coral. This is a drawback for kids who want to run on the beach and play. But there are plenty sandy beaches around.

It is likely that we will visit Koh Samui in the future again and we will definitely stay again at Sea Dance again. We had a great stay and want to thank Poy and staff for that.

I am sad we didn't get to stay here longer! Staff is attentive, smiling, and happy to see you. The room was very well put together and I really enjoyed the outdoor bathroom. It was really nice to be showering next to few a beautiful orchids and other nice tropical plants while hearing birds chirping. The drink menu is extensive with so many delicious mojitos! I ate the chicken basil chili dish and loved it! The pool is nice, beach beautiful and it just feels so intimate. I love the decor of the rooms including the stones around the bed. The lighting in the room is plentiful with dimmers and what not. The soft lighting that illuminates the stones is a thoughtful touch.

This place deserves 6 stars! Sea Dance exceeded all our expectations. The place only opened in Feb 2014 and the secret will be out soon. The people make the place and it has been built and designed and is run by PASSION and passionate people. The service is top notch. The setting is everything you dream of for an island vacation-private pools, an infinity pool, the beautiful beach, an open aired restaurant. The villas are divine. Everything is in pristine condition. The food is authentic Thai and we couldn't eat anywhere else. We came for 6 days but ended up staying for 20 days and cancelled our other 2 prepaid bookings on the Island, happily losing the money. We will be back, we can barely make ourselves leave.. we just hope we can get a booking here again. Simply the best place to stay on Koh Samui.

Dear C&J,
Thank you for sharing your Sea dance experience. It was great to welcome as a guest and to say good bye as a friend. Dropped you off and you checked-in back before i returned back at the resort will be our classic story. We are looking forward to your next visit.

We stayed for 4 nights (2 adults and a teenager) in a garden room and had a lovely relaxing time at the end of a tour round Thailand. The resort is beautifully designed to make the most of the views and the plants make it so pretty. Each room has a bed facing glass patio doors so you can wake up to the views. The attention to detail is what makes this place special - even down to the colour coordinated cushions. The infinity pool with views of the sea is lovely. There are 2 kayaks which you can use but the beach is quite rocky so nobody was swimming in the sea. We ate at the restaurant a lot and the standard of food was excellent. A great place to relax on Samui.

Me and my husband stayed at the Sea Dance Resort for 4 nights at the end of June. We found this place from Tripadvisor and we were so glad we have picked this resort. At first, we couldn't make our booking with the local agency so we emailed the resort directly. Mr. Poy, the owner was so helpful and made our booking process very quick and smooth. The resort is a boutique style with beautiful individual villa featuring different views and decorations. We took villa #2 and it was fantastic!! The room was clean, big with contemporary decor and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom was nicely decor with stone walls and wooden designs. We had our own plunge pool and a small garden with a nice sala. The view of our room was facing the infinity pool, the beach and the ocean. It was just an amazing view!! We loved it so much!! The team was very helpful and handled all our needs with their best capacity. We like to specially thank Junior and Sai with their 6+ stars service during our stay. You and the team has made our stay wonderful and enjoyable!! A true 5 stars resort!!
The resort only had one restaurant serving Thai food but their quality of the food was superior and very reasonable price. You do have an option to walk out to the main street (less than 10 mins) away from the resort to eat at this more local restaurant. They serve Thai, Western and also light snacks. There are also an 7-Eleven shop and a nice massage place on the same street. We went out to the Chaweng one night and we took the resort car (baht 500 per way, very reasonable price). There were many nice restaurants in Chaweng so if you decide to rent a motorbike, its a good idea to eat out in Chaweng.
The resort don't have their Spa and gym room yet, so we did Spa at next door hotel and they gave us a 30% discount as a first time customer. The spa was clean but the room wasn't very fancy and there were no lockers for personal storage. However, their massage lady was very professional and experienced. So the overall Spa experience was still relaxing and enjoyable.
To conclude, we will definitely recommend this resort to all our friends and family who is visiting Samui.

From start to finish our vacation at Sea Dance was amazing and incredibly relaxing. We were picked up on day at the Samui airport, we were traveling with a small baby we were driven safely to Sea Dance in a nice Toyota Fortuner.
We were VERY happy with our rooms, they were clean, new and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable and the Air Conditioning very good. We had two rooms, both with private pools. Very nice layout, but make sure you ask for a room set back, away from direct view. Sea Dance is quiet.
Every morning we had a very nice breakfast, we actually ended up dining in most nights at Sea Bass, the in house restaurant. We loved Toy's amazing Thai food, she's a very accomplished chef with a background at one of the fancy big Thai hotels in Dubai. We loved that Sea Dance had their own garden with homegrown herbs and vegetables. The food tasted so fresh and was mostly organic, which we prefer!
The whole Sea Dance team made us feel like family. Junior was a very caring manager and every morning his whole team were ready to serve and made sure we had an amazing stay. The staff were very friendly and amazing with our baby boy. He loved being spoiled by the Sea Dance team!
The pool area is very peaceful, with an amazing view of the ocean. The beach has rocks directly in front of the resort but a small walk down the beach and its all sand. Even though at low tide I recommend wearing some form of beach shoe while bathing. The beach was never busy and away from the crowded Chaweng beach. We hired the in house taxi to drive us around to the "Walking Street" Friday market in Bophut and to a few restaurants on the island, it was worth the extra fee for the in house taxi. To sum it up we will be back! We love the tranquility and relaxed feel of Sea Dance, the whole place has a calming energy around it and the staff is truly what makes this resort stand out. Frankly, I will never stay at another hotel in Samui. Sea Dance is THE place.

Room Tip: Pick a room set back a bit from the pool for more privacy. Make sure you get one with a private bamb...
