If you have booked to stay at Code and feel the recent political events have made you a little bit nervous, my advice is don't cancel! My husband and I have just returned from Samui after a 5night stay and I cannot recommend this hotel and its location enough. We arrived via Hong Kong so avoided Bangkok and the only sign of a military coup while we were there was the lack of cable tv stations. Who needs it?? If you are fit, enjoy the feeling that you own the hotel and love luxury, Code is for you. After reading the other positive reviews I felt a little disappointed that every guest is made to feel so important and special (thought it was just us :). Georgina, Ice, Wee and the rest of the amazing and hardworking crew will go out of their way to make sure your holiday is one to remember. Reasonable prices for the restaurant and spa make this place one that you will not need to leave. Although hubby did leave and play a couple of rounds of golf at the nearby championship golf course, organised by their staff.

Dear Sam and Wayne,
Thank you for your review. As you know firsthand the political situation in Thailand at the moment isn’t ideal for travelers however here on Koh Samui we haven’t been affected, most of our guest are unaware of what is going on! Thank you for your kind words about the Code. The spa girls knew by your first names towards the end of your 5 days as you were in there every day! I hope you will be back sometime in the near future, I know Wayne would love to play a round of golf at Santiburi again!
Thank you for choosing Code.
Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian

We enjoyed a great stay at Code. Here are our positives and negatives.

Positives:
- beautiful view from room. We had an Ocean View room so looked over both the pool and the distant sea.
- very nice restaurant. No complaints about our meals, both Thai and Western. Enjoyed delicious pad Thai, curry, Greek salad, pomelo salad, sticky rice and mango pudding. Drinks were good too but not cheap.
- beautifully designed resort and rooms very comfortable with nice big beds, soft cream leather couches, nice TV with lots of channels and a nice balcony. Nice toiletries too.
- staff very friendly and uniforms quite stylish
- lovely infinity pool overlooking the sea. In the morning by the pool we got free smoothies which was nice!

Negatives
- Code is very hard to find. Seriously lacking in signage. We drove past the drive in the day and really struggled to find it at night when we hired a car. The signs need to be bigger and there need to be more of them. Also, there needs to be a sign at one of the turns on the driveway where this is missing. Lucky our taxi drivers knew where Code is located because there is little chance they would have found the place otherwise.
- no dedicated place to put suitcases in the rooms. The cupboards are not big enough so we ended up putting one on the floor next to the bed and one in the kitchen area
- air con in room could not be turned down. Not sure whether it was broken or not but it was at full blast and was drying our eyes out and very noisy. A staff member came to help up with this and he couldn't figure it out. He said the engineers would come tomorrow but they never came.
- breakfast options lacking. Breakfast was very nice (Ala carte) but only varieties of western choices available. A sweet option such as pancakes would be a nice addition
- restaurant service very slow and dead at most times so not much activity happening.
- we were a little sad that we were on our honeymoon but nothing was mentioned of this even though the travel agent included mention of this. The other 4 resorts we stayed at all had honeymoon specials for us - rose petals, a bunch of flowers, honeymoon dessert and chocolate, wine etc.
- although the resort is off the beaten track, it is close to other houses around it so didn't have that real resort feeling.
- renovations were takin place while were there. We do understand though that they have to happen at some point.

Dear Michelle and Kieran,

Firstly thank you for your in depth review of Code it will be very helpful to future guests here at Code. Thank you for breaking down your experience into positives and negatives. The positives are all music to my ears thank you! All the guests are a fan of the cold towels and complimentary smoothies each day around the pool!

Now moving to your negatives.

We have signage for Code on the main road leading up to the hotel, on the corner of the road directing you to turn right and how many meters to go and at the entrance to the hotel…..

I am sorry to read that your aircon wasn’t working whilst you were here, I am at breakfast every morning and always ask guest if everything is ok in their rooms in case of a situation like this, sometimes trying to explain to the staff is lost in translation. All you needed to do was tell me when I asked if everything was ok as I did each morning and the problem would have been solved within minutes.

Guest are welcome to leave their empty suitcases with us and we will return to them before checking out, this is clearly stated in the welcome letter. All you need to do is call reception and we send a room boy to collect from you and place in our secure store.

May is low season, so when you stayed you probably felt like you had the whole hotel to your selves; unfortunately there isn’t much we can do about creating any activity when we have low occupancy….

Thank you for this advice, you will be pleased to know that from today I have added; Pancakes, French Toast, Fried Rice, Vegetable Stir Fry and Rice Soup to our ala carte breakfast menu.

This last point is one that greatly disappoints me as we always pay special attention to all our honeymoon guest as we have many. As I am sure you know Code is perfect for any honeymooners. I have re-checked your booking and Pacific World your agent did not forward on any information of your honeymoon to us. I wish you had told me when I spoke to each day; I would have made sure you had all the extras you mentioned and more! Next time you come and stay with us, I will make sure you get extra special treatment!

Once again thank you for your review of Code, I have sent an email to Pacific World highlighting to them to please make sure if they have any future guest staying with us on their honeymoon or for any special occasion to please make us aware.

Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian

Dear Zoe,

Great to hear from you. Code was exactly what you were looking for after a grueling business trip to Hong Kong! You came to the hotel with one thing in mind to relax and that you did! Although Alex gave his private tennis coach a run for his money on a daily basis!

So pleased you were felt well rested when you left us. Come and see us soon.

just got back from an amazing holiday with my girlfriend in samui and this was largely down to our experience at Code. the rooms where lovely, the food was excellent, (even the western dishes were great which was a lovely surprise). Lastly i'd like to mention the quality of service particularly the manager Georgina who done everything to make sure we had the best time possible. Would i go back? I'm booking it again next month!

Dear Alex and Melissa.

So pleased to read we will be seeing you both again very soon! I have just received your confirmation for the booking. Fantastic. It shows me that everyone here is doing their job to the best of their ability and making sure all guest leave with the urge to come back!
I know you both had fun whilst you were making most of all that Koh Samui has to offer, out each day exploring the island in the car you hired on sight, and coming back for your daily massages at Cinnamon Spa!

See you soon!

Kind Regards,

Stayed in a sunrise suite and it was modern, spacious, comfortable, immaculate, etc. Great view from the spacious, private balcony. Great food at restaurant and good, helpful service all round.
You get a dual-SIM mobile phone that you can use to contact the hotel anytime which is helpful.
It is a comfortable 1 km walk to beach through an interesting neighborhood and if the walk back is too much for you just call and they'll send a car for you. The free shuttle is quite flexible which we appreciated.
Thailand is very hot and the aircon here is easily powerful enough, minor niggle was that we found it hard to get a good balance for sleeping at night.

Room Tip: Sunrise suite can definitely be recommended.

Many thanks for your positive review of Code. So pleased to read that you were impressed by the suite you stayed in. Guest are always commenting on how spacious the rooms are especially the large balcony where you can enjoy the amazing view. Next time you stay with us please inform myself or reception that the bed isn’t as soft as you would like as we have mattress toppers for the few guests that also find the beds on the hard side.

Once again thank you for taking the time to write a review of Code and we hope to see you in the near future.

This was our first holiday to Koh Samui so i felt it important we had a good base from which to explore this beautiful island. After a little research and countless hotel reviews i decided to stay at the Code. On arrival we were met by Georgina who made us feel at home straight away, cold face towel & iced drink were much appreciated. We were shown to our room which had the most fantastic view looking out over bang por then the sea with Koh Phangan in the distance. Hotel & staff were just amazing. Breakfast was first class as were other meals we had. The pool was also very nice. We hired a car which i feel if you want to explore the island is a must, found some great beaches and restaurants all at reasonable prices too. All in all this hotel "Does exactly what it says on the tin " Once again thank you Georgina for your warm hospitallity, hopefully one day we will back on Koh Samui stopping at the Code. PS Thanks for the complimentary Thai massage. martin & Elaine

Dear Martin and Elaine,

Thank you for taking the time to review Code. I am so pleased to read that you had a wonderful time with us and enjoyed Koh Samui. It truly is a stunning island. I know you did lots of exploring when you rented the car and were happy with the location of Code, which is out of the way of the busier parts of town. Relaxing was your main aim and you certainly did that making use of the infinity pool and cinnamon spa.

Thank you for choosing Code and I hope to see you in the near future.

Kind Regards,
Georgina Brian

This was the most amazing place to stay! Complete luxury! There is not a thing about this hotel that I could possibly say was less than superb....but standing above it all was the welcome from the staff and especially the owner who was always around to ensure that his guests had the most fabulous time. He and his daughter-in-law were so generous with their time and energy, and incredibly attentive to everyones needs. A place where you can feel the care and love that has gone into making it. Beautiful!!

Hi!
Great to hear from you! You stayed with us at the beginning of Febuary which seems like an age ago now! You guys were a lovely family. Code was your last hotel before heading back to Oxford and you said you saved the best to last, so thank you for that huge compliment as I know you stayed in some lovely resorts on your month away.
Once again thank you for your kind words. Come and see us again soon!
