“Great hosts at a lovely hotel”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of January and felt very much at home there. We hadn't really planned our trip but Dave was so helpful and sat with us on our first night, writing out a whole itinerary for us, telling us the best things to do while we were there. We ended up going to beaches and bars that we never would have gone to otherwise and we had a great few days.

Our room was clean, nicely decorated and in all, good value. The pool was out of action while we were there but Dave had organised the hotel across the road to let us use theirs if we wanted.

If you are going to visit, I would definitely recommend being there on a Friday night as this is when the whole village turns into a Walking Street with market stalls selling everything from Crocodile Kebabs to fake watches. It's good fun and really busy,
The hotel has a tapas chef that comes in especially on Fridays so the place was heaving.

A good stay and would recommend to others.

Me and my fiance stayed here from 12th-15th feb and intended to be a little closer to the action, we were welcomed in by the owners dave and therese who were beyond fantastic, really sweet and couldnt do enough for us. Being newbies to the area it was so helpful that dave could tell us everything we needed to know and also make some fantastic suggestions, he also sorted us a hire car for an absolute bargain and really made our stay one to remember! If you are around bo phut / chaweng..i strongly suggest this place.

We booked cocooning for a few days with the thought that if it was nice then we would extend. After meeting Dave and Therese, and seeing the room, we immediately extended and booked in again for later! Dave is the most accommodating guy, knows all the people and places you need to know (with deals to match) and has proper English tea. In 4 months of travelling, this is easily the best place we have stayed. Could not recommend more highly.

I visit Samui every 3 months or so, Cocooning is always my first choice to stay if they have availability for me. It's just a few minutes stroll from some great bars and restaurants at the fisherman village which has now become my favourite part of the Island.The hotel building itself isn't new but it's been well maintained. The rooms have everything I need, they're clean, have a nice TV, good wifi, but most important of all the beds are very very comfortable! I recently had a quite a bad hangover whilst staying there and had to sleep most of the next day so I know :-) I nearly forgot to mention the breakfast is absolutely spot on. There's bike rental very close by and if you need a car/ jeep for the day the hotel owners make a phone call and one will appear in about 15 minutes! really a great little B & B

From the moment you arrive you’re made very welcome by Dave & Therese. They let you know how to get around the local area & introduce you to many of the other local business owners who quite often hang out in the restaurant having a coffee & catching up.

The rooms are very well appointed & decorated, clean & extremely comfortable. Conveniently located at the north end of the island, far enough away from the hassle of Chewang but close to many excellent shops, restaurants & of course all important transport links, the ferry port & airport.

I will definitely be returning to Cocooning on my next trip to Koh Samui.

I'd been travelling in Thailand for 5 months and needed a nice, inexpensive place to stay on Koh Samui. The owners were warm and so helpful. The room was beautiful. Located near Fisherman's village there were so many great restaurants to choose from and lovely stretches of white sand beaches nearby.

My wife and I have been staying on Koh Tao long term, so anytime we end up going to Koh Samui we without a doubt stay in Cocooning! Dave and Therese go way more than the extra mile to ensure everything is up to standard and that you are comfortable and enjoying your time. The rooms themselves are awesome, quiet enough at night if you want to relax but close enough to some great pubs and dinner places, and an easy drive or quick cab to Chaweng if you need a little more. The couple also have a great knowledge of the island and are quick to sort out anything else for you from good places to rent motorbikes to where to find the perfect steak or local Thai dish and everything in between. Can't recommend this place enough, we will be back guaranteed!

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
