“Relaxing place and friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

I've been there on November for a surprise propose trip to my girlfriend. The manager and staff are helpful and friendly to setup everything for me. The environment was peaceful and out of noisy (even though not easy to walk/drive some short distance to go to supermarket). It's not a happening place as Chaweng but if you intend to relax there, then this will be your ideal choice.

Hotel

Well maintained, clean, exotic environment with lots of plants and trees. Small 'gym' and relaxing communal area with seating, hammock, and plug-ins for your devices. The hotel is on the beach and feels very private. Switch between the small outdoor pool and ocean as you please. Free kayaks and snorkel gear for guests. Or grab a free hotel bicycle and explore the local (small) area. (Walking there is far). The restaurant is outdoors near the pool and you will can enjoy the food ocean side with a beautiful view. There is a non-hotel beach side massage for 300-500 baht/hr.

Food

Breakfast is buffet style, probably a bit less complete than other hotels we've stayed at in Thailand, but good and plenty. Dinner includes an affordable menu with satisfying/tasty food, but no bragging rights (based on two dishes). There are mom-and-pop restaurants down the road a bit that are cheaper if you prefer. i.e. Mama Moons.

Staff

Friendly as expected. English is limited, so the more complicated your request, the less likely it will be understood. Demanding/needy visitors will become frustrated.

The room

We stayed in room 102. The entrance to our quarters had a wooden gate which doesn't require a key, but only provides access to your 'front yard' which is where the outdoor hot tub is situated. Walls are high so you have privacy, but still outdoors (conversations in the hot tub will be heard). Wooden deck floor, lots of plants and intimate lighting....the word zen comes to mind.

Enter the spacious room via a glass door with key lock. Everything is made of smooth cement/stucco with the bed centered and elevated on a ~1ft slab of concrete. Sounds a bit strange, but its quite nice and unique, like a loft. The room is very clean and decorated contemporary in whites/tans. Reminded me of Santorini in Greece. Air conditioned, with TV, fridge, free wifi, etc.

Enter the spacious bathroom with sliding glass (privacy) doors, his-and-her sinks, armoire, room for break dancing, or 3-4 women getting ready.

Enter the spacious outdoor shower via a glass door. This is more of a 'shower area' than a typical shower as it's also outdoors, raised walls and roof covering of course, but outdoors none the less. The shower is centered with plants one each side. The shower space can easily fit 3-4 and the large rain showerhead accommodates 1.5 adults simultaneously, or two if you embrace each other. Bom chicka wow wow.

Overall

Very quiet with private beach. Property is very spacious, calm, and clean. This is a great place for couples or people who want to get away and don't need to be near city or attractions. Not close to food or stores or people for that matter. But we liked that part. You don't have to leave the hotel grounds at all. Recommended length of stay - 3 nights.

I have booked this resort on October for December holiday, based only on reviews that I have read here.
I must admit reality so far away from how this resort been described.
One hour after my check in I have found myself calling local travel agent, begging for help to find me new hotel.

Right from the start, on the way from Samui airport to the hotel (arrived at 21:00) I had a bad feeling with the resort, it is located 15km from Chaweng (main night life) which was OK because I wanted relaxed and quiet holiday but not so isolated…

we drove on dark bumpy road that lead to the resort, yes the resort located very close to the beach however nothing like supermarket near the resort (or light road around)
I couldn't imagine myself walking in pitch black for any supermarket or any other restaurant after dark.

The check-in was very smooth and the stuff were super friendly like all Thai people.

Then we went to the room… I'm traveling very often but nothing could prepare me to what I'm about to see, the room made of 100% concrete which easily reminded me prison movies (mattress lay on concrete base), the shower covered with mold on the concrete and terrible smell and very small light. I was in such panic that this is the room I need to stay on 5 nights so I didn't took pictures, but you can find them easily in travelers photos. They claim to have Jacuzzi in the room, well there is one at the porch but I'm in a big doubt if it ever been used due to the amount of dirt that was covered on it,

bottom line: the maintenance level was like any guest house that you can find for 15 Euros and the worst I ever seen in the world!!!

The hallways to the rooms was with so many lizards including huge ones so close to you that I felled like I'm in National Geographic 4D tour.

The stuff showed me another 2 rooms that was exactly the same so in that point as I wrote earlier I found myself calling traveler agent that hooked me with hotel in Chaweng

I would never booked this hotel If I would read this kind of review, no matter what kind of beach they have and how friendly the stuff are

Be careful with your expatiations !!!!

If it's your first time to Asia then this is amazing. If it's not then don't come..very disappointing.

Accommodation - clean and spacious rooms.
TV - limited choice of international channels.
Wifi - excellent across whole resort.
Location - Remote and 40 mins from Chaweng and 25 from Bophut.
Staff - sweet but absolutely clueless.
Local Area - nothing to do at all
Beach - Choppy water and beach only at LOW TIDE ONLY
Pool - Nice
Gala New Year Dinner - THB 4000 per head was just terrible
Food - AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL the worst I have experienced in 13 years coming to Thailand.

This place has potential but needs help....

The property is located at a very exotic and pristine location. The place is away from the noisy beaches. Its a cozy and a relaxing place. The rooms are neat and inviting. the rooms with the jacuzi are a must for honeymoon couples. the beach is clean and the infinity pool overseeing the beach is a sight you don't want to miss. the restaurant is situated across the pool and one can have a nice romantic candle lit dinner by the sea. all in all the hotel is maintained well. it also offers an arena of entertainment options like a free movies and book library, a gym, a kids play area. however, it lacks in service for a 4 star property. the house keeping is slow and lacks in refilling the bathroom essentials and the tea/ coffee supplies, the water bottles etc. the staff barely understands English and it gets difficult to communicate especially in a situation when you don't receive a prompt service from them. the breakfast buffet is disappointing and barely any options for a vegetarian. the menu at the restaurant also has very limited (or rather 3-4 options) for a vegetarian meal. in case you are looking for a longer stay, you may want to explore dining options outside the resort at times. all said, if managed in a better manner, the resort can be a ''must stay" place on your list of beach holidays.

My fiancé & I stayed at Mimosa for a week toward the end of November. Having never been to Thailand we had no idea what to expect. What we found was a beautifully relaxing resort, a clean spacious room & the warmest welcome we could ever ask for.
The layout of the resort is gorgeous with winding paths past beautiful ponds/water features, the gym & chillout area to your own very cute door (we were on the ground level). We were greeted with a large Jacuzzi, a very clean & cool room, huge bathroom with double sinks, robe (with safe) and outdoor shower. The WiFi was good, basic amenities -fridge, tea/coffee etc & the AC was great, overall the accommodation was fine for us.
The one thing about Mimosa that stands out is the staff. Always smiling which is 100% infectious. They guys at the restaurant are fantastic with us spending many nights chatting & having a laugh over cocktails happily accepting their recommendation for dinner. All the staff are so gracious and made us feel so special. Thank you for that everyone at Mimosa.
Yes, the resort was a little out of the way -that is what we wanted. We hired a car at a little money exchange spot up the street toward the 7/11. Koh Samui is not large and so many things to do and see are just a short drive away.
I hope to spend another relaxing holiday at Mimosa -it just can't com soon enough!

I was there with family for 3 days and i had a wonderful time there. The surrounding was quiet and peaceful, the hotel was well maintained and well equipped with kids playroom, gym, spa and so on. We had a nice, clean and big rooms with a living hall and two jacuzzi bathtub, which could be found at both balconies.

The breakfast were tasty and staff were polite.

It was located not far from Nathon pier and not far from Chaweng beach, which was one of the happening place in Samui.

Overall i would like to say that, Mimosa was the best resort i have ever stayed. Many thanks for giving as a good memory and i will sure staying at this resort in future.

Room Tip: Rooms are large and the surrounding is quiet and peaceful.
