“Unexpectedly fabulous!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

My family have just returned from a 5 night stay at Le Meridien, Koh Samui and I can honestly say that we didn't want to leave. We were in Koh Samui for a wedding and we chose Le Meridian because it was next door to the wedding venue. Not our usual way to choose a hotel and although it looked lovely we didn't expected it to be as fabulous as it was.

Not only is the hotel set in a beautiful location with fabulous facilities but the staff are super helpful and overall service we received was second to none.
The room was beautiful, with possibly the best bed ever, and the overall feel of the hotel is chilled out, inviting and elegant. Just what we were looking for.

We were travelling with our 8month old daughter and although we had some challenges with stairs around the hotel ie to and from the lobby, all other aspects of the hotel made up for it, especially the baby products provided in our room on arrival.

So if you're looking for a chilled out break, with excellent facilities, unbeatable service, in a beautiful setting, you can't go past Le Meridien Koh Samui.

Dear JGodbold,

We're glad that our team and resort facilities were able to surpass your expectations and that you and your family had a fabulous time!

It is true that the resort is not designed with children in mind and do regret any inconveniences caused. However, it is good to know that this did not detract from an enjoyable stay overall.

Please don't wait for another wedding to bring you back to Samui! We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back again soon.

Sincerely,
Tina

Love the location and the intimacy of the resort - only 70 rooms, however the property is tired and in need of refurbishment. Also for a five star property there is only one restaurant with an international selection but nothing grand or refined.

Dear Peripatecian,

Le Meridien Resort and Spa is comprised of 63 suites and 14 villas so the size and feel is indeed boutique. We are glad you enjoyed the location and intimacy which it offers.

In addition to Latest Recipe, our all day dining restaurant, guests may also enjoy Ocean Pier by Latest Recipe for drinks and/or dinner in a truly unique setting on a floating pier over the Gulf of Thailand.

We agree that the resort can be further enhanced with some touch up work and are happy to report that it is in the midst of getting a fresh paint job all around. Hopefully, it will feel even more renewed and refreshed should you have the chance to return for another quick getaway!

Sincerely,
Tina

Upon checking in to the hotel, we were instantly upgraded to a suite with a private pool, it was absolutely beautiful (make sure that you sign up to be in the starwood preferred program before you go- its free and you always get upgraded to the next best room free of charge). The outdoor bathroom was nice, although make sure that if you have to go in the middle of the night that you arm yourself with bugspray first. The pool was very clean and well maintained. Fresh fruit was brought to our room every evening which was great. Very plush and comfortable bed. I kind of felt like we were in the middle of nowhere with nothing to walk to, but the taxi system is pretty efficient so if you have somewhere specific to go it should be fine. Make sure you do the lantern ceremony at night!

Dear CS_Stach,

Firstly, I need to apologize for the delay in this reply. There seemed to have been some technical difficulties in getting my original response posted but I deifinately didn't want your kind feedback to go unanswered.

It sounds like you are a Starwood Preferred Guest and we thank you for your loyalty in staying with Starwood Hotels and Resorts and of course here at Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort and Spa in particular. While enrollment is free and we encourage everyone to join as there are immediate benefits to be enjoyed including a 15% discount on food, I also want to clarify that room upgrades will depend on program status as applicable.

The resort is located 10-15 minutes away from Chaweng and about 5 minutes away from Lamai by car. There are shops and restaurants in the neighboring area but the Chaweng and Lamai centre are the closest towns and the islands 2 most popular beaches. As of July, we now operate a daily shuttle that makes a round trip between our resort and Silver Beach as well as Lamai town centre. There is also a daily 1-way evening shuttle to different parts of island depending on day of week. This is after the Celebration of the Day ritual which you mention and is definitely a highlight for guests.

That said, it is good to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and we do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back!

Sincerely,
Tina

Some friends and I recently stayed at Le Meridien Koh Samui for 3 nights and it was absolutely perfect. Everything from the staff to the rooms was top notch. It is a small property, which makes the experience even better. It is beautifully arranged and decorated. We had been backpacking Thailand for 2 weeks by the time we made it to Koh Samui and decided to treat ourselves, and were so glad we did. When we arrived to Le Meridien, the valet staff greeted us and immediately took our bags for us while we went to check in. The front desk staff was superb. We were greeted by Sarin and Botan with a welcome cocktail and the manager on duty introduced herself to us personally.

It turned out we had booked a room for only 2 people when we had 3 so the staff graciously escorted us to let us see both rooms to decide which one would better suit our needs. We opted for the Plunge Pool Suite, which was fantastic. Very spacious. We loved the outdoor bathroom and shower. We had no problems with mosquitoes as some of the other reviews mention. The bed was so comfortable. They left complimentary water in the room everyday and we had fresh fruit waiting for us upon arrival. Literally no details went overlooked.

Every night at 7 they do the lantern lighting ceremony, which was really fun. Breakfast was included in our stay and the spread each morning was amazing. A great way to start the day. The restaurant for dinner was also fantastic, with a nice patio and a beautiful view of the ocean. The floating bar is an awesome place to have a drink and watch the sunset.

Other reviewers have mentioned the lack-luster beach. It is a smaller beach that tends to be covered in seaweed, but the pool is literally right on the beach if you are trying to lay out and Koh Samui has many other beaches that are easily accessible. It does not detract from the property one bit.

I really cannot say enough good things about this property. The front desk was so helpful, they even arranged for us to rent motorcycles for the day, which they dropped off at the property for us. If you are looking for a fabulous retreat, this is definitely your place.

Dear Morgan M,

We're glad to learn that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at our resort, particularly after traveling through the country for a couple of weeks. Great that Koh Samui made the list of places to visit!

With the rented motorcycles, you probably had a chance to explore the island and hopefully had a good time. It is also good to know that returning home to Le Meridien provided comfort and that you all had a relaxing stay.

Amazing service, 100% personal and absolutely fantastic facilities. It was my partners birthday and there was not one person on the day that didn't say happy birthday! Did the 4.15hrs at the Spa and ate on the pier where again both very personalised with happy birthday messages in the room, the spa and cake surprise at dinner! Will definitely return and highly recommend!

We have been traveling through southern Thailand for four weeks. The Le Meridien was an oasis in our travels. Calm and serene. Well-managed and personable. Pla and Dream, bartenders at Latitude Bar, are great at mixing cocktails and very friendly. Well worth a visit when in Samui. Great breakfast buffet as well.

Room Tip: Stay at one of the pool access suites and meet others also staying around your own swimming pool.

As this was our first visit to Thailand and to a Le Meridien on SPG points, we had not idea what our stay would be like. First, they upgraded our room to a off patio pool room and then told us breakfast was included. Great quite location, lovely lantern celebration each evening and happy hour buy one, get one free! The staff is so attentive. We were looked after by Luke (GM), Tina (GM) and our favorite waiter Big. Everyone treats you like an individual in a very genuine fashion.
We found out that the comp breakfast was a mistake because we were here on points. They comped up the first day and all food is 15% off. And there is a two free Illy beverage coupon in the room. They also brought us a plate of fresh fruit.

The room is very comfortable other than leaving the door open when they make the rooms. This allows mosquitos in. Once my husband mentioned this, they light coils outside our room. Again, very attentive. Would love to come back except it is too hot for me. Being from Northern California, the heat is exhausting. Will need to stock up on the points to try another location.

Room Tip: Take the private car from airport. It is a good 30 minutes away.

Dear Inverleith F,

As a first time visitor to Thailand, we're glad you made it to Koh Samui and enjoyed your stay with us! April is actually one of the hottest months to visit so do not let this deter you from returning, perhaps during a different period next time!

On this occasion, it is good to know that our team took good care of you, particularly Luke and Big in Latest Recipe. Your kind recognition has certainly been shared. The little food & beverage perks seemed to have come in handy as well although we apologize for the misunderstanding about breakfast inclusion on the first day so that one was of course on us. As a Starwood Preferred Guest, hopefully you enjoyed the 15% food & beverage discount otherwise.

We have also reminded our room attendants to ensure that guestroom doors are closed during service in order to keep out mosquitoes as mentioned. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience caused.

Thailand has much to explore and while we do hope to welcome you back one day. please do also look in to the many Starwood properties across the country. Hopefully, some of the starpoints collected here will help with another vacation soon enough!

Sincerely,
Tina
