Have spent 5 wonderful days with my daughters at the pool villa. What a nice, pleasant and quiet place.
We all appreciated the decoration of the villa and all the environment.
Special thanks to Poy and all the staff for their warm and dedicated care of us.
Sure a place to go where you will feel like home.

Room Tip: Pool villa No 1 is really exceptional

Dear JP,J&J, Thank you for sharing your Sea Dance experience on TripAdvisor as well as your feedback and point out an area that we can improve on such as to be more efficient on clearing up the table etc. I appreciate the fact that you really care to bring it up to my attention and we are currently working on improving it.

Being number one on TripAdvisor above 311 hotels on Koh Samui is really something that we do not expect it to happen, especially in less than six months of the operation of independent own/manage resort. I awe it to my good small team and grateful for all customers who are being part of Sea Dance story.

Should think of any other things that we can improve.work on please feel free to contact me directly at: poyatseadance@gmail.com.
Kind Regards,

Poy & sea dance team

What makes the Sea Dance Resort a really great place to stay is the personal attention from Poy and his team. Poy, Junior, Quan etc really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They make sure they know the names of each guest, remembers what you drink, what you like to eat etc.

The resort is situated in Bophut, 10 mins by car from Chaweng but away from the noisy nightlife of Chaweng. The beach is very private and clean. The resort is new and only opened in 2014. The rooms are in the form of mini standalone villas, some with their own private pools. We stayed in one of these and had a perfect sea view. The room interior is very modern, Thai theme and very well equipped.

Facilities in the resort include an excellent thai restaurant, infinity pool basically on the beach, nice pool bar, kayaks etc. Most evenings when it is not raining the team prepare tables on the beach for really awesome beach dining.

There is a well equipped shop and car rental 5 mins walk away. The resort also arranges transport in Chaweng, fishermans village etc on request.

Well done Poy and Team. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend your resort.


Regards

Many thanks to Junior and the team for making our stay here so awesome.

Sea Dance is a newly built resort in the bophut region of Ko Samui. (tip: as it's quite new, some of the locals may not know it yet. If you need to get transport or ask for directions, say it's next to Akaryn Resort)

The rooms are based off the African style round huts which makes the interior very spacious. Inside is a very comfortable bed and powerful aircon also. Needless to say, it is very clean and immaculately kept (as is the rest of the resort).

There are many personal touches put in by the owners (Poy and Junior) into the design of the resort. They do not rely a lot on external contractors, but the resort staff work together to make the changes.
The end result is that the environment is very warm and inviting. Although there are other guests we felt like we had the resort to ourselves.

Hope that we can visit again in the future. Interested to see what new changes there will be. Definitely will recommend Sea Dance to our family and friends.

Dear G&B, Thank you for sharing your sea dance experience on TripAdvisor. It was great to have you as our guest on a very short notice, it was uncommon to receive your call from BKK in the morning and to welcome you in the afternoon.

In deed Sea Dance is less than 6 months old and response is overwhelming. A lot of Samui taxi still don't know where Sea Dance is and our future guests read a lot of generous reviews which raise expectations of the future guests. I hope that we will not disappoint our future guest.

Kind regards,

Poy

We (2 travelers) stayed at the Pool Villa for 5 days and were completely pampered by the staff from head to toe. They took really good care of us, remember our every need and are constantly thinking one step ahead to try and make our holiday as smooth as possible!

We were won over by the beautiful location, the attentiveness of the staff and most importantly, the passion and energy the staff brings to the place. The villa we stayed in was clean and nice. No major issues. At the end, we felt like they were our travel companion, not just resort staff. As frequent travelers,everything exceeded our expectation. It was definitely a 6-star boutique hotel experience.

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.
