It was the first resort we stayed in Ko Samui. The resort is new and everything is derocated to be beautiful and natural. We chose the garden view room and were arranged to the second floor, so it was better for privacy. We loved the room and the honeymoon derocation so much. The housekeeping service is excellent, and the clerks in the resort were very kind and nice,we loved them all.

This was our second visit to this beautiful resort,having stayed here two years earlier for our wedding.
Once again we were blown away by how magic this place is. The staff would have to be the friendliest people I have ever met and they bend over backwards to make your stay perfect.
We will be returning every second year for our wedding anniversary because this place holds a very special place in our hearts.

From the brochure Rocky’s ticked all the boxes from our perspective and we were not disappointed. The particular attraction for us was the beachfront bungalows; there are also quite a few bungalows on hillside terraces between the beach and the road which are all very nice, but we wanted to step out onto the beach from our own room and were surprised that so few hotels on Samui were able to provide this. We had booked a junior suite but were delighted that Rocky’s upgraded us into the Deluxe Beachfront Bungalow for most of our stay. Thank you Rocky’s.
Having spent the preceding days in Bangkok sightseeing we found ourselves unable to bring ourselves to leave Rocky’s at all for the 4 days we were there. The Dining Room provided some lovely meals and we were well looked after as Vegetarians – particularly by Tien – although all of the staff were very friendly and attentive. If you like such things – and we do – we’d recommend the Romantic Dinner for Two on the beach – Chef created a wonderful Vegetarian menu for us starting with canapés and followed by 7 delicious courses. Bring a good appetite!
The complementary massage for each of us was also an unexpected bonus.

Room Tip: The hillside is quite steep and the atmosphere away from the beach has quite a 'village' fee...

Thank you. I agree that the hillside is a little steep but that does create some amazing ocean views.

For those that find the hill too much, we have a nice comfortable buggy to take you up and down.

I have just spent 5 days at Rockys Boutique with my boyfriend and his mum and step dad. We had an absolutely fantastic time.
The resort; Was so beautiful and especially at night with all the fairy lights draped around the resort, the rooms were great size, spotless clean (cleaners come in twice a day if you want) everything was perfect around the resort, the staff work very hard everyday to ensure everything around the resort is perfect.
The staff; were so attentive, friendly and nothing was a problem - Lucas was our host in the morning who would always come round at breakfast ask how we were, recommend thighs to do places to eat in Lami etc wa really good to have someone like that.
The area; Lami was a nice area to go into for dinner at night there was is a bistro in the resort but it's nice to get out, there was free shuttle taxis into Lami everyday which was really handy. It was only a 5 min drive.
We went on a boat trip one of the days which was run by the resort we hired a private boat for just us and they took us to a lovely area to snorkel and then had some lunch which was included in the price and then stopped at a beach and done some fishing too was a lovely day out and definately a highlight of out holiday here.
Overall had a great holiday and would definately recommend this place to anyone this resort is suits to all ages, couples and families. Big thumbs up from us!! Thanks to all the staff at Rockys we had a great time keep up your hard work!!

If You want to spend a beautiful time in paradise we recommend to visit this hotel. It was for us the first place where the reality is better then photos from hotel web. The whole hotel is made like a design jewel, you are not able to find two equal places, every nook is another but beautiful. But the most valuable in this hotel is unbelievable level of guest care. You will be cherished all the time by plenty of sweet pushovers. Many thanks to management and all hotel employees.

Just returning from 8 days at rocky boutique resort i can understand why this in at the top of this list on Trip Advisor. After hunting around for accommodation we settles on Rockys due to a friends wedding being held there.

To be honest the photos I saw on trip advisor made me feel a little average about the resort but on arrive i was blown away by the unique oasis that is Rocky s. We arranged the hotel transfer which I recommend paying for (air-con coach 1000baht) who waited for our bags to arrive on a second flight. On arriving at 11:00pm we were greeted by staff as soon as we got out of the coach and led to reception (10 meters walk) and met by an additional two staff who warmly welcomed us and were given a cold towel with some type of red drink that I could have drank gallons of (tasty). Then we were upgrade to the Villa which was awesome considering how many days we would be staying.

We walked to our villa and on entering the Villa the back door opened and our bags were delivered. Its a small thing but i hate waiting for bags to be delivered once in the room. The villa was massive with two master bedrooms, ultra cool bathrooms and 2 separate livingrooms. Everything you could ask for is in the villa... it is a self contained apartment.

The next day we wandered around the grounds which the attention to detail just blows you away, beautiful gardens, flower fountains, sitting areas and 3 pools with cocktail bars. The gardens are epic! To get around town we requested for a scooter which was delivered within 5 minutes and my drivers licence copy held with the hotel. No need to leave your passport with some company if you hire from the street.
Throughout the stay the service is top notch, a shout out for Jacky, this guy was always on hand (day & night) smiling friendly and I don't know when he sleeps!

Whenever we ordered room service the food was excellent and delivered within 10-15 minutes. I ordered Ice for some pre party drinks and it was at our door within 1 minuet (not kidding). Dinner and Breakfast at the restaurant(s) is also delectable... i could not find fault in any dish and we had plenty.

The staff are always smiling and always happy to help with whatever request you have. The owners and management put on free cocktails at the pool bar friday night and you can always see them walking around the Resort... that is why this place runs with a polished fluency.
We visited the Phenix hotel where some friends were staying 10mins walk down the road and the service was horrendous, slow and confused.. it was day and night compared to Rockys.
Its a great resort to just zone out by the pool or as we did the private villa pool, its not action packed full of backpackers but if thats what you are after book Arcbar in Chaweng. Getting around the island is simple just jump on a scooter or grab a taxi for 500 Bhat.

Now the negatives: They are small:

1.Our villa rooms (1102) didn't have any mosquito net over the bed and never thought about it until we noticed the hook on our last night. We kept all the doors closed day and night but they kept getting in (strangely in the bottom onsite). This was annoying getting bitten when trying to sleep, villa next door had no mosquitos 1101. We used the mosquito devises also, i think they may be getting in through wall gap, pipe work, door gaps or something (needs looking into).
2.The beach is nice to chill out at but its not the best for swimming.
3.The location is 15-20mins away from the action.. but we had no issue with that.
3.Kids we all were one at some stage but as DINK`s (double income no kids) its always nice to stay at a resort that has a kid free pool. I would recommend that the lower pool by the beach be a kid designated pool leaving the top pool for the adults or the other way around. It only takes one child to kick off to ruin everyones relaxation by the pool & when paying to relax this should not be impacted by children.

Well done to the staff and management of Rocky`s .. we will be back!

Room Tip: Villa 1002 had the best sun option over villa 1001

Rocky's unfortunately did not live up to our expectations. Sorry to say this, but it turned out to be the worst place we have stayed in Thailand, EVER....
Arriving late thursday evening, 6. feb 2014, we were hungry and went to The Dining Room and ordered a steak (Well done), which came out half raw. Unfortunately we didn't noticed this in time because of the light in the restaurent. We did however notise the dead spider on the plate under the bread, and send it back out to the kitchen.
Going to bed for a good night's sleep, we were deprived of our sleep due to a wedding party taking place over The Dining Room. Apparently they don't mind loud music from wedingparties, keeping the other paying guests awake, and our complaint to the receptionist at the front desk were ignored.
Next morning and very tired, we had breakfast in the same restaurent, Scrambled egg, bacon, sausage and fried egg.
The scrambled egg was more egg-soup than scrambled, and the fried egg was partly raw and cold. So was bacon and sausage.
4 hours later we had a first ever in Thailand, DIARRHEA...walking up and down the street of Chaweng, wisiting one toilet after another and had to get pills at the local farmacia. Now, whenever we visit our family in Bangkok and explore the city, we often just grab something to eat at one of the streetkitchens that are everywhere, and we have never had anny kind of problems doing that, so you can probably understand our surprise to the fact that a 4 Star Hotel with an awardwinning kitchen can't cook egg's.....
Now, it might have been just a mistake on the first day, so on saturday we gave the same order for breakfast, and got the same crap. Needles to say, the dishes never got to touch the table before we sent everything right back to the kitchen.
For the rest of our holiday, we made do with anything the chef did not have to cook. Toast, youghurt, cake, whatever food had to originate from outside the hotel. I meen, who can posibly mess up taking bread out of a plasticbag???

Going to bed monday evening, there was yet another wedding, and again we didn't get to go to sleep befor past 1am. And like on thursday there was absolutely no assistance from the front desk when we complained about the noise. Apparently only the manager could do something about the noise and he was home sleeping.... We could talk to him in the morning at 8am. (Same time we got picked up for our prebooked tour to Ang Thon National Park).
Thanks for nothing....
After our tour to the National Park, I went looking for the manager, who was busy doing a fotoshoot, but I did talk to an assistant (or at least I think he was. I was frankly too tired and angry to notice). I presented him with our complaints and he did offer us free dinner at The Dining Room that same evening. It was supposed to be safe as it was Thai-evening....Please read that last part again....that's actualy what the man said...I declined the offer and kept wanting to talk to the manager. The assistant accepted my refusal and said that he would return with an answer from the manager soon.
I am writing this on friday 7. marts 2014 at home in denmark, still waiting for the reply....

It's not that we wanted to be overly compensated in any way. All we wanted was for our last 24 hours in Thailand to be perfect and to get an honest apology for Rocky's attempt to ruin our vacation. Nothing Rocky's could ever offer us would give us back the days/nights we have lost.

Now, not everything at Rocky's is a mess.
The girls at the front desk are just as helpful as they are at any other 4-5 star resort, and the garden surroundings are absolutely wonderful with breakfast in the sunrise on the cliffs right by the water. Beautiful.

Rocky's motto is: WHEN YOU'RE AT ROCKY'S YOU'RE FAMILY
We paid about 36.000 Bath for 6 nights to be treated "like family".
Now, if this is how you are beeing treated for 36.000 Bath I'm glad I'm not related. The fact that Rocky's are unable to plan and execute a weddingparty in respect to ALL their paying guests is completely unacceptable. But you know, the largest moneybag gets to decide whats right and whats not.

I have a feeling the Hotel is going to write some kind response to this review, so to help them remember who we were, we stayed in room 407 from thursday 6. marts 2014 to wednesday evening 12. marts 2014
Everything written here has also been written on Rocky's own evaluation form (and then some), so I should think, that they have had sufficient warning. Have Rocky's mislaid the form, we can allways send them a copy. Got a picture of it before handing it over at the front disk.
