My sister and I have been traveling in SE Asia for 2 months and this is the first time we have written a review because Cocooning is the best place we have stayed in this whole trip!!!!! First of all, Fisherman's Village is where you want to be on Ko Samui. Shopping is great, seaside locations, and tons of restaurants to choose from. The hotel itself is intimate, affordable, and extremely friendly. We have never felt more welcomed!!!!! Dave the owner and his wife Therese gave us great suggestions and helped us book an itinerary for all of the islands. Be sure to stay on a Friday for cocooning's renowned tapas and lively walking street. We can not praise this place enough... Truly inviting, fun, comfortable and chilled out!!!!!!!!!

Stayed here for a couple of days and everything was beyond excellent. The warm welcome from the wonderful owners Dave and Therese to the close proximity to all the best restaurants and bars in the Bophut area. The rooms are exactly what you need, air con with a separate fan, very comfy beds and plenty of space in the bathroom and the balcony outside. Dave and Therese go beyond what you'd expect from hosts at a B&B, very helpful with any information you need with ongoing travels or even new eaterys to try out in the area, a wealth of local information and a willingness to share it with their guests so the have the best stay on their holiday. They do a wonderful night of amazing seafood tapas every Friday on the weekly walking street market in Bophut..something not to be missed... Very happy to say we'll definitely be back at this little gem of a place....Thanks to Dave and Therese for making our stay a memorable one....

Just got back from a short stay at the Cocooning Hotel and would definitely stay there again. The rooms were comfortable and nicely furnished, and owners Dave and Therese went out of their way to make us feel welcome and give us tips on what to do. There's a fantastic local restaurant right next door as others have said, and the hotel itself does really good breakfasts. One of our best days in Thailand was spent relaxing by the jacuzzi and knocking back some Singha beers- look forward to our next visit!

I love this little hotel, we have stayed here a couple of times and the price of the rooms are superub! Dave and T do everything they can to help you.........they go above and beyond in everything they do even with a small baby . The Tapas on a friday evening is totally amazing...its a must!

If your looking for somewhere that is a little different/quieter this is the place to stay amazing places to eat and drink ...and just a 10 min cab ride to the clubs...... this has it all!

We will be back....every year if i had it my way!

Room Tip: The Suite is amazing for the price...pay the little extra !!! great views of the friday markets!

Great backpackers hotel. Cheap rooms, good and quiet position (next to a great Thai restaurant). The owner and staff makes you feel very welcome, and help you in any way they can - the owner in British.
Recommended hotel!

The owner, Dave was extremely friendly and welcoming. We are so glad we chose to stay at this hotel for 3 nights in Samui. Dave helped us for car rental and also gave us lots of information as to where to visit, both in Samui and Bangkok. Go to the restaurant on the right when you leave the hotel, the bamboo hut restaurant offers cheap and good food, and also real fruit juices!

The rooms were nicely decorated and they are of excellent value.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone with a budget, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks Dave!

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
