“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Spent 4 days in Koh Samui during our honeymoon and stayed in a pool villa with a garden view. Our stay at this hotel was absolutely amazing, it made our honeymoon that much more special due to the employees attitude and hospitality who work at the hotel. They were absolutely amazing and available 24/7 to cater our every need. I cannot thank the staff of the hotel enough for making our honeymoon so special. I highly recommend this hotel for a place to relax and enjoy the local culture.

Had a great time staying here. We were there for a romantic holiday but realized the hotel is also very family friendly. The location is great on a beautiful secluded bay away from the crowds of the busier beaches. Its also quite centrally located along the east coast so everything is within a short drive. The staff were excellent, really professional, friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful, tastefully designed with lush greenery everywhere and has a really relaxed vibe. There are 2 swimming pools, one by the beach and one more secluded. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with a variety of fresh juices made to order and a good selection of everything else. The deluxe sea view rooms were just right with a perfect view. While not overly luxurious they were still of a very good standard and had everything you need. The beds were really comfortable and the balcony was perfect for relaxing. I would definitely visit again and bring the kids next time.

Room Tip: sea view deluxe 4th floor...cant go wrong

Dear BuBash,

Greetings to Manama from tropical Samui. Thank you for choosing the Renaissance for your holiday getaway and for sharing your feedback with the TripAdvisor community!

We are happy that you enjoyed your Deluxe Seaview Room and all of our facilities... While our resort is mainly frequented by couples with many romantic secluded spots to discover within the tropical gardens and at our quiet beach, we do indeed have a kids pool right at the main beach that is perfectly located for our youngest guests and their parents.

Please let us know whenever we may assist you in arranging your next family holiday or romantic getaway via killian.donoghue@renaissancehotels.com

With best regards and Sawadee Krub,

Killian Donoghue

My family had a four-night stay at Renaissance in late January. It’s a long planned family trip. Between Krabi and Samui, we finally chose the latter. And we chose the Lamai beach, for we wanted to stay away from busy city life to relax and refresh.

Renaissance proved to be perfect, and we enjoyed the tranquility there.

We booked a seaview deluxe room, and got upgraded to a garden villa with great privacy. The room is really spacious and cozy.

The restaurants Banana Leaf and TawaNN are great. We had our dinner on the first day at TawaNN, and the view there is wonderful. My daughter also misses your ice cream and candy at the reception.

My little girl likes your beachside pool and “Lap” pool very much. She also enjoyed walking with my husband in the cool and shallow sea water. But it’s a regret that she did not try your kayak with her father. And she really wanted to stay longer.

What impressed us most is the nice staff, and they are very helpful. Our stay at Renaissance could not be more comfort. And something happened after we checked out made us more convinced that your resort is worth a second visit in the future.

When we were just going to board at the Samui airport back home, we got a call from the front desk manager Chin, and was told that some of our very important belongings were left in the room. Later that night, I got a very detailed list of the belongings via email from Chin, and he also took pictures for all items. His professionalism made us convinced that the belongings would come back to us smoothly.

What’s also quite reassuring it that Chin helped coordinate everything about the delivery and kept us informed about the status. And all of the items have already reached us.

Thanks to you all!

We were very lucky to have booked villa 101 on the beach, right next to the pool. All I can say is wow! Every little detail is attended to from the start of your stay to the end. Although in places it could do with being more authentically Thai it is a beautiful hotel with fantastic food (especially at breakfast). We were a part of a much larger group and everyone who stayed loved it!

We has gone on our 1 st anniversary to koh samui and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights ,and I must say our experience was awesome .
First to start with though the hotel is at a distance from the main chaweng beach and lamai beach but it is suitably placed for the size of area n property it has .
On our arrival we were given mango ice cream till we were checked in instead of the usual refreshing drink in many hotel , also the check in was pretty quick n a hotel employee Mr. NOM guided us very well about the hotel
The rooms r lovely at this hotel with balcony n jacuzzi inside its rooms

Dear PavanFromMumbai,

Sawadee Krub and thank you for your kind review! I am thrilled to read that our team made your special stay so memorable and that you enjoyed the jaccuzzi on the balcony of one of our Deluxe Rooms!

You are right, the hotel is not located in the busy and commercial tourist centers of Chaweng and Lamai, but right in the middle in a quiet cove that makes for some nice relaxation before and after some exciting night life in town which is only 7 (Lamai) and 15 (Chaweng) minutes away with one of our complimentary shuttles or private SUV's.

We wish you many happy anniversaries to come and hope that one of them would lead you back to our small piece of paradise here on Koh Samui. Until then, I send you my best regards,

Killian Donoghue.

We have just returned from a 5 day visit to the amazing Renaissance resort on Koh Samui and yet again it really met all of our expectations and more. The resort itself is very clean, the grounds are kept amazingly well maintained. Pool and Beach area are great too, beds comfortable and most of the time enough space to either sit at the pool or at the nice beach.

We have been here last year and I have to admit that the resort is better managed this time because both the GM, Killian, and his deputy, Didier, were visible and approachable for all quests. They even walked by on the beach to see if everything was good with the guests and if you had any questions you just have to approach them.

My family had the opportunity to stay in 2 of the Garden Villas and they are nicely finished with even your own private pool. Cleaning was done on a daily basis and it was spotless.

The restaurant, Banana Leaf, was recently remodelled and that shows because it was more bright and it looked like there was more space to walk around. Good thing they didn’t change the breakfast because that’s one of the best breakfast you can ask for.

As I already mentioned the resort is amazing, staff are first class, are helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We couldn't find one negative thing to say about our stay in this resort except it wasn't long enough.

To all staff, thanks for the opportunity to stay in your hotel.

Room Tip: The villas are the best!

Dear Bob P,

Thank you for choosing to spend your precious family vacation once more with us here at the Renaissance Koh Samui!

It was a true pleasure to welcome you, especially being a Platinum Marriott Rewards Member which offers you so many options of Renaissance Hotels to stay at. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our refreshed Banana Leaf restaurant which was just completed in December. Indeed we have not changed the breakfast, simply continued to add additional items (not sure if you still had the chance to try our new croissants and baguettes which are a real hit )...

We all hope that you will come back to visit us next year, the villas are waiting for you. Simply drop me a line and I will happily take care of your reservations. Until then: Sawadee Krub from Koh Samui to Gouda!

Killian Donoghue.
