“Great location and really lovely people!”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

We stayed at Cocooning for a few days just before Christmas. The owners, Dave & Teresse made us feel really welcome and went out of their way to look after us. Dave cooks a mean English breakfast and Teresse makes a really good Swedish breakfast.
The rooms are cosy and have flat screen TVs and DVD players and fridges too. The are situated just at the end of the walking street in the Fishermans Village so everything is in easy walking distance.
Thank you Dave & Teresse for looking after us. We will be back for sure!!

We met the new owners, Dave and Thererse and they are a lovely couple. In the few weeks that they have owned the hotel they have made it a lovely place to stay. We only spent one night but royaly entertained throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and we look forward to going back soon for a visit. Chris and Tracy x

If you want somewhere quiet and chilled then Cocooning is a great spot to stay. Fishermans Village has some great spots for food and your seconds from the beach. The owners have recently taken over and nothing is too much trouble. Clean rooms with wifi, dvd and aircon. Fantastic food and a friendly and inviting atmosphere.

I only stayed here for 1 night, but had a lovely experience. Cocooning has recently been taken over by new managers and they are the perfect host and hostess. Very, very helpful and friendly, they made our stay most enjoyable.

Cocooning is in a great location, away from any noisy bars and restaurants, but still only a very short walk (2 minutes) to the heart of the Fisherman's Village. I didn't eat there, but there's a little tapas restaurant in the resort, so you don't have to go far for good food.

The rooms have been newly spruced up and there are brand new flatscreens in every one. They are very comfortable.

The absolute best thing I have to say about Cocooning is that the new managers are so helpful and friendly, they even went out and bought a brand new cot for my 1 year old.

I will definitely return next time we're on Samui.

New owners and we were their first guests! The owners and lovely married couple Dave(english) and Theresa(swedish) took great care of us throughout our whole stay. The breakfast is great and you can choose from many different options, the veggie brekkie is a fave! The hotel is within a very short walking distance to the beach, stores, travel agents and restaurants. We will definitely stay here again next time on Koh Samui!

We booked this for one night on route to Koh Tao, so we wanted a budget place just to put our heads down for the night.
What we got: Dark, damp room backing onto a building site. Terrace doors to room had a 1 inch gap which wouldn't close so left room open to mosquitos etc. Bed hard (thailand standard!) however sheet was thin and had holes in it. Woke up feeling sticky, not from the heat (which might be normal) but because of the damp!! Didn't take a shower because the bathroom was so revolving (even more damp than the bedroom, mouldy and smelly). Needed to book an early morning ferry and staff were unable to help (nor did they appear bothered).On the plus side there is free wifi, a DVD player in your room and 2 very cute kittens!

There are lots of other places which offer substantially nicer accommodation for the same price (or potentially less).

I booked with Agoda, I got a good deal so wasnt expecting much, but still, the worst is the staff, the receptionnist barely says hi, and answer every question by " yeah, yeah' yeah" I checked in during his lunch, I guess he was pissed!, when he showed the room upstairs, I asked for wifi and he just shows me the label with wifi code and password..then I try and there is not network...I go back downstairs, ask the receptionist, and I got the answer : not in the room, only in the restaurant", then why wouldn t you say so??! plus I really need the wifi in the room, and I always check that before booking. I could accept that again if the staff had the right attitude, but the owner being out of town, it explains that attitude I guess. Besides, the room is quite ok, maybe a bit smelly, small balcony with construction view, but what can I expect for 11 euros? a friendly staff, at least!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Just minutes walk from the beach and perfectly located at the quiet end of the villages many shops and restaurants, Cocooning is a tranquil paradise and a great place to enjoy Samui from. Great value for money, the hotel is very competitively priced for the area and perfect for couples, families and singles of all ages. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome from Dave and Therese, the hotel's owners, who are by far the hotel's biggest asset. The dynamic duo from England and Sweden have lived in Thailand for over 10 years, offering a wealth of experience and local knowledge. They started their journey on Koh Tao where they met and worked in the diving industry, until they set up their first business together running a very successful beachside bar and restaurant. They were later married and looking for a new adventure with the imminent arrival of their first child, set their sights on Cocooning in 2012. They instantly added something special to the hotel and their little personal touches can be seen throughout. Service is most definitely with a smile and guests are made to feel instantly at home. ... more   less
