“Fantastic resort, great staff, fab food, fantastic wedding, shame about the Russians!!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Rocky's gave us the most fantastic wedding in what all I can say was paradise. Ann the wedding planner could not do anymore to make our wedding more perfect. The resort is stunning, the staff could not be more helpful and Amm who works in the dining room is the niceest person you could meet. The only downfall to our stay were the Russians! They seem to think that every sun lounger off main land Thailand belongs to them, they were arrogant and verbally abusive and especially on our wedding day.
Apart from these small minded people I would in no doubt return to to Rocky's! A fantastic holiday!!!!

I am not sure of where to begin with how pleased we are with this lovely boutique resort! My husband and I have just returned from a three week trip in Thailand that included our highly anticipated wedding at Rocky's. They exceeded our expectations in every way!!!

First of all, I worked with Ann over the past year in planning this wedding. All planning and correspondence took place via email between the U.S. and Koh Samui. I had to have complete faith in Ann that Rocky's was just as beautiful in person and that everything would be taken care of for our 35 guests that would be meeting us in Thailand. She made all of the details as care-free as possible. She even helped us plan excursions for our guests, transportation, and accomodations.

Upon arrival at the airport at Koh Samui, Rocky's arranged for ground transporation for each of our guests. They were welcomed by a driver with an air conditioned minivan with cold towels and bottles of water. After arriving at the hotel, they were provided with some tea and a brief explanation of the offerings of the resort. The rooms in Rocky's are beautiful. We have traveled all over Thailand and I think that it is definitely a rare find. It's cozy, yet has the amenities of a large expensive resort. The prices do not match the luxurious offerings.

On Friday nights, they have a cocktail mixer. We were fortunate enough to meet some of the owners. It really gave us a feeling that we were welcomed at Rocky's.

The night before the wedding, we hosted a welcome dinner for our guests in the Bistro restaurant. The chef worked within our budget to put together a dinner that impressed our most picky friends. For a VERY REASONABLE price, we hosted a classy dinner with an open bar for 35 guests. Once we saw the dinner presentation for the welcome dinner, we knew that we'd be in for a treat for the wedding. Weeks later, our friends are still talking about the food!

The following day was our wedding. We were upgraded to a beach front honeymoon suite that was very impressive. You hear the waves crashing and have a 180 degree view of the water. Our wedding package included a manicure, pedicure, massage, and hair service. I felt like a celebrity. The thai dancers and drummers that lead the wedding procession is something very special. When I arrived at the wedding aisle, the setting was something out of a movie. I was very impressed! Carter - our wedding celebrant made us feel at ease and provided a lovely ceremony that was customized for my husband and I.

All of our guests were provided with sandlewood fans, flower petals for wedding confetti, champagne and canapes. The reception dinner followed shortly after that. Of course the food was amazing again. There was steak, giant prawns, curries - an excellent combo of western and asian foods. After dinner we had an amazing fireworks show on the beach, while the reception area was being prepared for dancing. Our DJ (DJ Blair) was awesome. He really flowed with the crowd and was attentive to which songs were a hit or a bust.

When we finally called it a night, we found that our honeymoon suite was beautifully decorated and were provided with some lovely surprises (I won't ruin it for future honeymooners!)

Feel free to message me if you have any questions about my wedding experience there. I would definitely recommend it!!

Room Tip: The newer gardenview rooms are larger. If you are splurging, ocean front is pretty amazing!

Having read all the reviews on TA we were disappointed with some aspects of the hotel. The service at breakfast was very hit and miss - some days we felt invisible! The service in the restaurant at night was extremely good though.

Some of the staff had very poor English which made communication at times quite difficult.

The main problem with this hotel is lack of sunbeds with umbrellas. We met up with other members of our family out there and on a few days we had to take turns on the sunbeds as there were none available. When we complained to a member of staff he said he could have some sunbeds put on the beach but there was no shade - he stated that there is only a problem when the hotel is nearly full which is was when we were there as there was a large wedding party.

Unfortunately, after having a meal in the restaurant at night, 2 members of our party were ill - as we had not eaten anywhere else at this point I can only assume it was the food in the hotel.

However, it is not all bad, the rooms were lovely and beautifully decorated

There were beautiful flowers in the room and the grounds were kept immaculate.

We had a couple of Thai Massages and these were wonderful - can thoroughly recommend.

One last point - in the past we have stayed in hotels and they have provided complimentary flip flops. I wrongly thought this to be the case at Rocky's as they were in the wardrobe with the bedroom slippers with no notice to say otherwise. We were charged £14 for these at the end of the holiday - very expensive ordinary flip flops!

We are really sorry that your holiday did not meet your expectations. We were extremely busy at the time you stayed with us and had a couple of breakfast staff sick for a few days. Completely unforseen.
Would you kindly let me know which day you were sick, I can check what you ate. We have had no other reportings of sickness here.

We stayed for 2 nights at Rockys. On arrival we were upgraded to a beach front suite from which the view was stunning. Beautiful resort with great food, friendly staff and everywhere kept immaculate. Two nights was not long enough and if we are fortunate to visit Koh Samui again would definitely stay here again.

Rocky's is set in a quiet, beautiful spot on the island. There are only @ 50 rooms so it never seemed over busy. The rooms are always kept immaculate and are stunningly decorated in traditional Thai decor. The staff were exceptional in their friendliness, attentiveness and bent over backwards to be helpful. We were given an upgraded room on arrival right on the beach which was an added bonus. Any requests were dealt with immediately. The food in both restaurants was excellent and breakfast included buffet and a la carte options. The massage was also great and reasonably priced for a hotel. We had a peaceful time relaxing in the stunning resort for a few days after a hectic Thailand tour so didn't actually explore Koh Samui further..........the hotel was so lovely! If we return again to the island we would definitely stay at Rocky's again as a base to explore the island further.
Rocky's may not be considered a 5star luxury resort compared to others on the island or around the world but I'm not sure what more anyone could want!?

Room Tip: All the rooms were stunning. We were glad we had a room overlooking the beach and it was close to th...

I stayed at this resort whilst attending a friends wedding. the hotel was fantastic. we had a beach bungalow which was amazing really spacious room and right on the beach. The staff at the hotel were excellent (although sometimes a little slow with the cocktail making at the bar), the food was delicious. It has to be the best hotel i have ever stayed in.Everything will now be compared to Rockys.
