“Great hotel in paradise!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed here for just under two weeks and we really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in one of the deluxe suites which was very comfortable and spacious and had everything you could possibly need. It had a very modern , clean feel and it was lovely to arrive to complementary cocktails and a big smile! We had no private pool like in the villas but for us it was enough to have use of the two pools down at the beach club. That area really is stunning.That is where the restaurant is also located and it's wonderful to have breakfast looking out at that view! We found breakfast staff always very efficient and friendly. The breakfast is great... so much choice! We only ate in the restaurant for dinner once or twice as yes it is expensive but I imagine similar hotels aren't much different with the 10% service charge and vat... It didn't bother us much though as we much prefer to get out and about and try the restaurants in Lamai- where there is a great choice and which are amazing value. If you planned to eat there regularly I guess that wouldn't be great! In my opinion the location was great as it was out of the busy areas - but between Lamai and Chaweng so quite convenient to both. You really will have to rent a scooter or a car however unless you plan to stay in the resort for the whole holiday or do some walking or else depend on the taxis or songthaews (which are cheap anyway- bout 5 euro for 2 to Chaweng) We decided to hire a scooter however from the hotel and it was a great way to get around and for so cheap!! ( about five euro a day! ) Any trips you would like to take , reception will organise for you which is great. They cannot do enough for you. We felt very well taken care of and we can't wait to return!!!!! Fabulous place!

Found this hotel over rated and overpriced paricturally for food and drink.
Rooms are excellent, they are modern and very clean.
Customer service around the pool and in the resturant was in my opinion very poor in fact the worst that we experienced during our whole hoilday in thialand, we had stayed in four other hotels during our trip. This was the most expensive hotel during our trip and we were saving the best to last, however we felt let down. Was it worth it? Sadly no.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay with us. I am glad that you found the rooms to be excellent, modern, and clean. They are all very new and have been outfitted to be as comfortable as possible.

I feel that the food and drink prices are quite reasonable for the quality and variety that is offered such as thin crust wood fired pizza, grain fed burgers, goat's cheese and artichoke salad, Tasmanian Salmon, Phuket Lobster, and of course a wide selection of Thai specialties.

The 10% service charge is passed directly on to the staff on top of their salary.

I am sorry that you experienced poor customer service in the restaurant and around the pool. The vast majority of our guests are very satisfied with the high level of service that we offer. Of course, poor service at any time is unacceptable. To ensure that the service is always excellent, last week we brought on new management level restaurant staff who have been conducting training sessions and working with the waitstaff daily.

I am sorry to hear that you felt that you were let down and I sincerely hope that you give us another chance to provide you with the outstanding level of service that we are known for.

Beach Republic offers 'hotel boutique chic', with a major laid-back and chilled feel. The management and staff cater for your every need and nothing is too much trouble for them. Fabulous!

We had a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment which was very spacious, comfortable and had all the facilities needed to accomodate a family of 4.
The beds are extremely comfortable, changed regularly and turned down every evening. All rooms have air con or you can choose to use a centre fan. All rooms have complimentary tea, coffee and drinking water, etc. The fridge/small larder is fully stocked but very expensive!

Food and beverages are very pricey in all the major hotels on the island and Beach Republic is no exception. However, the restaurant offers a very good selection of both and the standard is excellent.

Breakfast is served in the open-fronted restaurant, just a few metres away from the residences and offers everything you could want - the coffee in wonderful! The restaurant overlooks the pool, palm trees, white sand and a very calm sea. Total tranquility right from the start of your day!

All in all, great hotel in a fantastic location.

Whilst Samui is a relatively small island there is much to see and do and hiring a car is advisable. We had a 1.3 Suzuki Jeep which cost £12 (550 baht) per day. Not much room in the back, but perfect for what we needed. Hotel has plenty of parking space.

We will return to Samui and Beach Republic and highly recommend it.

We stayed for month in a modern Two Bedroom Villa, June/July 2011 also stayed same time last year 2010. The villa is fantastic, plenty of room and the fully equipped kitchen is sufficient. The second bedroom is upstairs with its own separate sunbathing deck. This works really well for two couples but probably not so good if you have small children and require the second bedroom for them as it is quit separate from the rest of the villa.
The pool is a great size and very private and the garden around the pool is nicely done.
The breakfast is good and down at the beach club situated right on the beach. The beach right outside Beach Republic is not the best swimming beach but a walk around to Lamai which takes about 20mins the beach is beautiful.
Overall Beach Republic is a wonderful place to stay either for a short stay or longer what we do. Highly recommend you give it a try.

I stayed at The Beach Republic and was amazed at the high quality of the residence and the whole resort. I felt like I was at a six star resort and the atmosphere was unbelievable. Robert and Dave were a pleasure to spend time with and helped make my stay there even more enjoyable. The location is directly on the ocean and and extremely peaceful and relaxing. On my next visit to Thailand this will be my first and final stop.

this place is super relaxing and has a great vibe! the staff are super nice and young. The pool is awesome. The restaurant is a bit expensive, but the quality is good. Also, the location is not the best you need a taxi to go to town but its not that bad if u want to relax.

The accommodation was relatively new and had a contemporary feel with great furniture, fixtures and fittings. The balcony/terrace in each room was great. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The restaurant served excellent food (apart from the mediocre breakfast) and despite being slightly more expensive than other places, was well worth the money. We will definitely be back!

The hotel is a little way out of Lamai centre (though we prefer this) so it's not so easy to get around unless you hire a bike/car or use the jeeps.
