“Fantastic family run hotel.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Situated just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the fishermens village, Cocooning hotel is a small, family run hotel which offers excellent value for money in an ideal location a minute away from the beautiful beach of Bo Phut. Run by Londoner Dave and his Swedish wife Therese, this 6 bedroom hotel offers a bar, clean rooms with hot showers, air con and a flat screen tv with a DVD library which was handy as I went in rainy season, a pool and a private balcony. The relaxed atmosphere means you can get up when you like and their lovely housekeeper Marli will make your breakfast to order. I read a few reviews on here with people complaining that the bar isn't open all the time and while that is true, Dave and Therese are on the premises every morning from about 8am and spend most of the day there. If you need them after that, they are only ever a phone call away and can be back to help you with anything within 10 minutes which I don't think they should be criticised for. There is a bar next door if you need a drink and next door but one is a fabulous very reasonable prices restaurant called The Hut which serves the best Thai food I had in Bo Phut. Cocooning isn't a 5* hotel and that is reflected in the very reasonable rates they charge but, given the cleanliness of the property, the location and the knowledge of the local area provided by the owners, this hotel is an ideal choice. Dave and Therese have lived in Thailand for a long time and know everything there is to know which means they can help you with any arrangements for days out, diving, boat trips and if you want a taxi, you only have to ask. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be greeted like an old friend and made to feel welcome during your stay. Thank you Dave and Therese, and of course, baby Harvey x

Dave & Therese was very accommodating and helpful.It was also a perfect location to go for my diving trips.

Trongpon's wife made delicious breakfast too.

Really appreciate the help Dave & Therese had made for the ferry arrangements and local transport service from Mr Trongpon.

Love the layout of the room too and the beautiful swans laid out on the bed.It was romantic and room had a sweet ambience though I was travelling solo.

Missed the chance to really try their Tapas Restaurant on both Fridays.Hope to try it out on my next visit.

Lastly would like to say it has been a awesome and memorable time in Samui and in Cocooning .

For those coming to Samui,what are you waiting for.Try Cocooning ! ;-)

We had breakfast there every morning which was great and cooked to order.Fiday nights a must as part of walk street and the freshly made duck pancakes are to die for.Dave & Therese & staff are very accommodating and their knowledge of Fisherman's Village and certain areas of the island was a great help.Will be back at Christmas.

We can't thank the team at Cocooning enough for our two wonderful stays over the past week.

If you're looking for comfortable, affordable, and well-located accommodation, this place is for you! Dave, Therese, and the rest of the staff truly go the extra mile for their guests.

Fridays are a blast as they offer tasty tapas, drink specials, and you can enjoy the walking street in the Fisherman's Village. It's an easy ride to Chaweng, but also in a great area of its own.

We felt extremely well taken care of throughout our stay and wish we could have stuck around longer!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights including a Friday thereby allowing us to enjoy the 'walking street' market directly opposite the hotel and social entertainment of meeting many locals frequenting the bar during the evening.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and while the pool is small, it is extremely clean and refreshing providing a nice respite from the heat
The value and location within Bo Phut cannot be questioned and Dave and Therese are the ultimate in providing quality hospitality and service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time and experience at Cocooning and look forward to returning soon.

We have just left cocooning hotel and wish we could have stayed longer. Perfect location right in the fishermans village in Bophut! The owners were so friendly and helpful, telling us places to go and helping with our laundry etc, I've read a review below that says 'all
Thai hotel staff are lovely, so Dave and Therese aren't special' I don't think this is correct, we have been in Thailand for three weeks and Asia for two and half months and I think Dave and Terese are the friendliest hotel owners we have met. Room was fab, no complaints at all, we are backpackers and it was pure luxury for us! The bed is the comfiest we've slept on in Thailand. Honestly couldn't fault, thanks Dave, Therese and Harvey!

First of all, its important to note we paid around $45 for a night here. With that in mind, you cant complain much. If you are looking for a hotel close to the beach and a place to lay your head then this hotel will suit your needs.

The hotel is just behind the beach, you have access to another hotels pool which was nice. The rooms are basic but do their job. Aircon was ok, balcony was nice but next to a building site so veiws werent great.

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
