Rocky's Boutique Resort
Ranked #2 of 51 Hotels in Lamai Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Rocky's Resort is certainly one of the best hotels that we have ever stayed at. Located south of Lamai and Chaweng is great to keep the loud noises out if you want to chill but yet close enough to get out and about. It has It's own little beach, fantastic resort facilities and everything was exceptionally clean with attention to every detail. What really set this resort above others was the staff. Exceptional mention to Tiew for her beautiful warm smile every morning without fail. To the gorgeous Ann (the wedding planner) who is extremely well informed of all possible activities for you special day. To Rowland for playing great music brilliantly on his guitar every night. JJ for being aware and attentive to everyone's needs. In fact every staff member was wonderful. We travelled with 2 other couples and we all felt the same. This resort definitely did it for us. We would like to congratulate everyone at Rocky's Boutique Resort for making our stay such a memorable experience. We have no hesitation to be ambassadors of you beautiful Resort and your home. A major "Thank you" to all concerned. Domenic and Carolyn.

Bit late in doing this review, I had the most wonderful time at Rocky's in February 2012. The hotel is second to none, the staff extremely helpful, & you get into responding to the Thai traditional greeting.
The room was a delight & do try the sweets left on your pillow each night, a bit chewy but nice all the same.
The pool restaurant can get a bit busy at lunchtime but food is worth the wait.
The air conditioned library is a must visit to check up on e-mails, etc.
I would encourage visitors to visit the nearby restaurants as much cheaper & food is plentiful.
Visits to Lamai & Chewang are a must both during the day & night.

Although there is a beach at the resort, it is nothing to shout home about, There is a local beach approx 10 minutes walk (turn right outside the resort), although you can access it from the resort but may have to climb over rocks depending upon the tide so care should be maintained at all times. Once at the beach you will not be disappointed. There is a small beach cafe there which offers a wide range of food which is great. Do not be put off by the shabby looking seats or chairs on the beach or by the basic toilet facilities (when in Rome, comes to mind).
WARNING - get to the beach to obtain a beach lounger as they go very quickly, some mornings we were the at 9am!!, if you miss out you can always lay your towels on the beach, no problem.

You can access the Grandfather & Gradmother rocks from this beach but very high climb & quite dangerous descent, so best access them from the road (just a few more steps past the beach from the road & turn right) there is a good range of stalls to collect gifts as well, so went back there a few times.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments, we really do appreciate them. I am expecting delivery of another 16 sun loungers for the beach so there will be plenty to go around now.

Let me start by saying my wife and I have never been to Asia, so we decided (partly because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor), to spend five nights at Rocky's Boutique Resort in Lamai, and five nights at Hansar Samui in Bophut, (read my Hansar Samui report). We wanted to break it up a little, and what a good decision it was in hindsight!
First impressions were absolutely amazing! We were treated like royalty from the moment we were picked up from the airport in the Rocky's car (two bottles of chilled water and two face washers), to the complimentary tea (and more face washers), when we arrived at reception.
Once we were shown to our room WOW!!! It was fantastic and so clean. We had complimentary champagne and fruit in our room, and the bed was done up with two swans.The bed was very firm and comfortable, and we were amazed at the attention to detail in the room. Even the bath towels were fluffy, bright and white, the bedsheets were spotless as well as all the bed covers.
We attended the complimentary cocktail night on the Friday night, and were once again amazed at how gracious, generous and friendly everyone was. We had the pleasure of meeting Martin the General Manager, JJ the Assistant Manager, and ended up drinking cocktails into the wee hours with these guys. We met other couples from around the world, and the general consensus was, this place was an excellent choice. I could go on and on about our time at Rocky's, about the staff (who greeted us by name everyday), about the location, the surroundings, the breakfasts every morning in the Dining Room, to the pools......It has all been said before!
Don't think about, just book it!! I know it sounds a little corny, but they do really treat you like family. Thanks again Rocky's we will be back. Robert and Maria xxx

Room Tip: We had room 604 overlooking the gardens and pool. It was perfect and not too loud at night.

I have just returned from my daughter's wedding at Rockys. I whole heartedly agree with all previous comments. From the moment we arrived we were met with genuine smiles and friendly attentive service from every single person we met. With Ann and Martin's help the wedding was amazing and unforgetable. They worked really hard to make it a perfect day. Also a big thank you to the rest of the staff especially Boat, Big and Pie who worked on the bar. An extra big thank you to the star of the staff, Yan, the driver who took us on a brilliant island tour. Dont hesitate, just go.

HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE!
My wife and I chose to have our wedding at Rocky’s on the 31st of May due to recommendation from friends and the good reviews on trip advisor. It was without doubt, the best decision we ever made.
We booked the wedding about a year in advance so as to give our guest sufficient notice. Our wedding planner, Ann, was of great assistance right from the very beginning to the end. Ann was always very responsive to our emails and very proactive in providing suggestions and solutions to any issues we may have had. Ann really took a great deal of the stress out of planning a wedding.
We arrived at the resort a few days prior to our wedding and were blown away. The website photos do not do this place justice. Every aspect of the resort is amazing. We stayed in the ocean view room prior to the wedding and then the beach front suite for two days after. Both rooms were absolutely exquisite, beyond 5 stars! We also saw a number of other rooms via our guests, The Thai Villa is amazing. And even the basic options (if you can call it that) such as the garden view are gorgeous.
The resort has two places to eat, the bistro and the main restaurant. Both are absolutely brilliant. One night I had the lamb cutlets at the restaurant and I can honestly say it was the best lamb cutlets I’ve ever had. The restaurant also caters for the wedding meals; we had a western menu tailored to our needs. My brother, who is a chef, was very impressed as were all our guests

But what really made this resort is the people and the personal touch. Nothing is too difficult and every request is met with a smile, every single person in this resort makes you feel at home. The general manager Martin was extremely helpful, pleasant and above all professional. Special thanks should also go to ART, who helped me out on numerous occasions.

Our wedding itself had 50 guests, many of whom stayed with us at Rockys’s. As the resort is a boutique, it really helped nature a great atmosphere leading up to the wedding.
We really must extend a huge thanks to Ann our wedding planner, who made it all happen. She is an absolute delight to deal with and is a credit to the resort. We simply cannot thank Ann enough for all her efforts.

The wedding itself, was more than we could ever have dreamt or hoped for. The resort (via Ann) takes care of everything, eliminating much of the stress one would usually associate with a wedding.

The hair, make up and pedicure/manicure for the bride was 5 star and cannot be faulted. My wife did a trial for her hair back in the U.K, which she was happy with, but Rocky’s did a 100 times better job!

The entire set up is amazing; the beach looked brilliant as did the banquet room where the reception was held. The ceremony and its procession is just amazing.
Our week at Rocky’s was without doubt the best experience of our lives. We cannot thank this resort enough for everything they have done for us and our guests.

We have just returned from the most amazing 2 week stay at rockys. Words can not describe how wonderful the hotel, the staff, the food etc was. We were out there for a wedding which was being held at the resort and i can honestly say it was the best wedding i have ever had the pleasure to be a part of. Ann the wedding coordinator is wonderful and worked extremely hard to make the day a memorable one for everybody. I cannot recomend this hotel enough, if you want a holiday of a lifetime and memories that will stay with you forever then book rockys, its one in a million

My wife and I got married on 11th June at Rocky's resort and we were simply blown away by the experiance. From the moment we checked in, Martin and his staff were the most gracious, helpful and attentive people you could meet. If you are thinking of getting married at Rocky's, just do it.
The rooms are exquisite, the attention to detail is staggering. ALL staff were helpful but just to name a few, JJ (what a gentleman), Jack (spot on with the weather, thank you!), Tiew (great smile at breakfast time, a very nice lady), Ton (always on time) and of course wedding planner Ann who made it the amazing day it was, nothing was too much trouble. Also, my wife would like to say a big thanks to Jack and we think her name was Nan? (manicure and ped lady) for helping save what could have been a very bad hair day. Last of all but no means least, gen manager Martin for his humour (kitkat was a great touch) and his unfaultering professionalism. To be honest everyone one we met at Rocky's was 1st class. The wedding day itself was absolutely flawless and Rev Paul Rambo made us feel calm and relaxed. The service and setting was beautiful. We will never forget Rocky's Resort and we will recommend a stay to anyone (with or without a wedding ... even if you just want an amazing meal). We will be back next year. Thank you for everything. xxx
