Great hotel in a great location, beautiful pools, beautiful beach, fun kids playroom, lovely staff, and as many wrote here, it's all about the little details! The only thing we found disappointing is the zillion stairs in the resort (not mentioned in the web site), which with our younger kids was a bit of a problem...but still, we will gladly be back

We got married in Rocky's 2 and a half years ago and, given we were in Koh Samui for a friend's wedding, we decided to go back for 4 days. We were a little nervous, as the week we'd spent there for our wedding was simply amazing, so we were hoping that Rocky's hadn't changed. We needn't have worried, it's even better than it was!

I can't give Rocky's enough praise, I truly can't, everything is just perfect! The staff are the most wonderful, genuine people, and can't do enough for you. To name a few that stood out, there was Tien, Ton, Chui (sorry about the spelling if it is wrong), Q, and, of course, Ann the wedding planner, who is still there. It was so lovely to see her again, as we were both pregnant, so we could compare bumps! Truly, all of the staff were incredible though!

My husband had asked Rocky's to leave a little note on the bed for me and they did the most amazing thing and wrote the note in flower petals! They also decorated the whole room with fresh flowers, and to celebrate the fact that we'd been married there and were returning, Ann organised a bottle of bubbles in our room, which was such a special touch.

As I mentioned, the resort has improved no end. The flowers and little touches everywhere were amazing, as they always were. Even down to the smell of the resort, I don't know what the oil is that burns in all of the public places and the rooms, but you should sell it, Rocky's! If you decide to do so, please tell me where I can buy some, as it brings back such good memories!

The food is still out of this world too, we ate a lot of things! We love the addition of the beach beds and kayaks, and there are always enough beds for everyone, which was wonderful.

Whilst we were at the resort, there was a very noisy family that disturbed pretty much everyone one day. The resort dealt with this very well and spoke to the family, so the next day they were not a problem. We really appreciated this, as we were there for some peace and quiet!

On our last night, my husband had organised for us to have a private dinner on the beach. For anyone who wants a truly special treat, do this! It was simply incredible. They set up our own table right on the beach where we got married, with our own pagoda, lit up by fire lanterns and candles in the sand. The service was incredible and they even amended the cocktails/wine and food because I was pregnant. We had the Thai food option and it was superb. There was soooooooooo much to eat, I think about 6 courses, one of which was enough for a family of 6! Amazing food, incredible service, such special surroundings, it was just so romantic and perfect.

The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the setting for breakfast is sublime. It was also nice to catch up with Martin, the general manager, when we were having sundowners!

One thing I would say is that, whilst Lucas (the guest services manager) is very nice, we didn't feel as though breakfast was the right place to be walking around tables asking people about their plans for the day and selling tours etc. The leaflets and information he gave were really useful, but it might be a little less intrusive to leave the leaflets on the table for people to peruse in their own time, and to have Lucas on hand somewhere in case they decide to do any of the activities. Just a small point, but I think it is one worth considering.

All in all, this really is our favourite hotel in the world. It has such special memories for us and Rocky's hasn't let us down this time. We'll be back once our little one is born!

The hotel is located in a beautifull beach not far from Lamai with excellent service and breathtaking villas on the beach front. The hotel is perfect for couples and hineymoon. Great music by night. However, food in the hotel is very expensive for no reason and we found better breakfast in other hotels.

I stayed in the deluxe ocean view villa and found it absolutely fantastic. The bed was like sleeping on clouds. The facilities were excellent, very romantic buy also very family oriented. The pools were excellent. The staff were excellent, Gina especially has a heart of gold. And to top it off the food was to die for, breakfast dinner and tea. The quality was fabulous. Wish I had more experiences in the thai bistro as this blew me away. Please try the chicken satay or pork and crab spring rolls. This will never be forgotten. Thankyou for the hospitality.

We spent 10 nights here, going for my daughter's wedding - this was absolutely wonderful and surpassed her expectations, thank you Ann (the wedding planner). The resort is stunning, the staff here are amazing especially Nut,Tien, Ton and Kob, they all strive to meet your every need. However the billing system is very confusing, when buying drinks - you sign but do not get a copy of the receipt, this lead to our bill having to be checked (and altered in our favour!) three times.They also presented us with a final bill for accommodation when checking out, however we had booked the whole package through Expedia!
My other issue is that Rocky's needs to establish whether it is a romantic venue for couples or a family resort as we had to endure several days of parents and children screaming at each other and taking over the pool area.

Stayed at Rocky's in late January 2014.
Was very hard to book into as was fully booked for a lot of the time we were in Thailand but finally managed to get 4 straight nights. Was well worth the effort as is a beautiful, well presented and managed boutique hotel.
Koh Samui itself is not a large island so you are never to far from anywhere but didn't want to stay at Chaweng on the first visit to the island. Lamai is a quieter area and we enjoyed the private beach area Rocky's has.
We stayed in a Deluxe Garden view and the room was beautiful with presentation and cleanliness being well above average. There was a balcony at the front overlooking one of the many stunning gardens and with the amazing lights at night set a wonderful ambience to the place.
Air-conditioning worked well and was very quiet and all standard room accessories were available including tea and coffee making facilities.
Two pools and two restaurants ensures you always have options at Rocky's. Was always able to get a chair at one of the pools and neither restaurant was crowded so never got that 'too busy' feel about it. Great sitting at a table on the rocks watching waves roll in.....
Thank you to the Rocky's team as all went above and beyond at all times.
Also:
I would like to note a SPECIAL THANK YOU for honesty...as I left a couple of valuable rings in the room safe and only discovered once we were airborne. I contacted via email as soon as we landed and thankfully they were handed in by staff to management and sent back to me in Australia.

Highly recommend Rocky's and would stay here again if returning to Koh Samui....

Room Tip: We stayed in the Deluxe Garden view and was a beautiful room. Enough space for 2 people and dependin...

I chose to stay at Rocky's for 4 nights based on TripAdvisor's reviews. They were so consistently glowing, and my family and I were not disappointed. The location was fine, the grounds were stunning. The location on the beach, with interesting rocks to view and explore was great. The restaurants had great menus and quality and variety of food. Each evening there was also entertainment. The clientele were mostly Europeans, Australians and Israelis and a mix of couples and families. Also, our accommodation was spectacular for its quality style, decor and amenities. And finally, the service!!! Outstanding. The owners, managers and staff pay such great attention to detail and are so authentic in their interest to keep guests happy and maintain the reputation Rocky's is renowned for.
