“Excellent.”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

My wife and I stayed here for two nights recently and will definately go back. The new owners Dave & Therese will go out of their way to help their guests and the breakfasts are not to be missed. The location is excellent and offers a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Chaweng & it is only a five minute taxi ride to the airport for those flying in or out. The rooms are very clean and nicely furnished/decorated with a flat screen tv, DVD player and private balcony. Both Dave and Therese have made Thailand their home for over ten years and are more than willing to help guests with any queries or advise they may need, whether it's about diving, visa runs or which beach to visit. A top spot!

I wouldn't normally write a review for a hotel but this one was so great and the owners so welcoming, that I felt the need to put something online about it. Really nice hotel, great location, very friendly staff and awesome full english breakfasts!

My wife an I stayed here for 3 nights and we couldn't ask for more. I called in after a recommendation from a local bar/restaurant manager. I met Dave an Theresa, the owners, an they were extremely helpful. He told me the price for a double room, an after realising he only had availability in his suite (for the first night), he was kind enough to let us have that for the same price!!
The rooms were perfect for us, air-con, flat screen tv, DVD player!
The location is fab too, just nicely on the quiet edge of bophut fishermans village, but literally a stone throw to the centre. Perfect location, as bophut is definitely our fave place on the island. I'd recommend this place for sure!! Thanks again Dave an Theresa.

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.

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
