I booked into Beach Republic based on the fabulous reviews and was blown away. From being greeted at the airport with refreshing towels and cold beverages to receiving complimentary cookies from the beautiful staff in the afternoons. Service went beyond our expectations!! The hotel was gorgeous, breakfast was amazing (so much choice, everybody would love something), atmosphere was great (very modern and chilled) and the food at the restaurant was to die for. The only complaint I would have is some parts of the hotel look unfinished, other than that it was a perfect getaway for people who want to relax, enjoy beautiful beaches and an awesome atmosphere.

Four of us spend 13 days in the Villa in Beach Republic. It was like something from a dream. Beautiful interior. Immaculate Bedrooms. Fantastic swimming pool! Beautiful garden surrounder by tropical plants. We had never stayed in a villa before so it was an adventure. We loved every minute of it. The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels brought in. The cleaning staff were lovely lovely people. The location was out of this world. Two minutes from beautiful beach. Wonderful restaurants beside us and all around Koh Samui. Never met such friendly staff or such friendly people living in Koh Samui. The manager of Beach Republic spoke to us daily to make sure our needs were met and to advise us on the best trips to take. Lots of facinating places to see. The food choice was absolutely unbelievable! October was a great time to go. We had very little rain. Everyone and everything was so nice that I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I would highly recommend Beach Republic. I certainly would recommend the Villa. Gives you such freedom.

We were looking for a little bit of luxury for a couple of days after three weeks backpacking around Thailand. Beach Republic exceeded our expectations in every way! The food was excellent, the decor was very clean, modern and relaxing and we loved the hip house music playing around the pool.

The staff were friendly and worked hard to satisfy any requests we had, from booking sun loungers, to moving poolside umbrellas and generally delivering food and drinks with speed and a smile whilst we relaxed near the infinity pool.

We ate at the restaurant on an evening and whilst it was quiet, this added to the romantic atmosphere. The food was excellent and the lobster bisque was the best I've ever had (and I've tasted a few in my time) and if you get chance, try the fois gras wagyu beef which was also amazing!

The place had a really nice mix of Thai and Western staff, many of whom took the time to speak to us during our stay. Nothing was too much hassle and the whole team had a real desire to deliver a really high standard of service.

Our room (a two bedroom pool villa), was amazing with its own private pool as well as great kitchen area, coffee machine, comfortable beds, plasma tv and great music system.

We left feeling relaxed and refreshed and are looking forward to a return visit!!

A friend and I stayed 4 nights at the Beach Republic and had a fantastically relaxing time. Our apartment was huge, modern and clean and we enjoyed the complementary desserts that were left for us each night. The staff were all really friendly and helped us in all our arrangements from organising taxi's to arranging a hairdresser for us. The spa was great and breakfast was delicious, especially the freshly cooked scrambled egg.

What really made it for me was the atmosphere around the pool, a combination of chilled out music in the background and the sound of the waves made it a great place to unwind. The pools were refreshing and we appreciated having our sun beds reserved for us each morning.

On walking along the whole of Lamai beach, I believe we had chosen the best place to stay in this area and I would definitely come back again.

This is such a very cool place. Great DJ's, fabulous food, unreal swimming pools and beautiful beach right in front! This is a must place to stay. Friendly and attentive staff. Service is A1. Sunday brunch is a full on banquet, every type of cuisine you can imagine, together with pool party/lounge music. The accommodation is second to none with beautifully appointed villas, some with their own pools, skypool villas, and older style pool villas which are very retro and tropical. Get yourselves down to The Beach Republic.

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom pool villa and I swam in that pool most of the day and into the night. The buffet breakfast is free and very extensive and healthy!

Shopping is very close with Lamai beach about a 10 minute walk along the beach if you like. Chewang is a 10 minute drive up the road and their onsite spa is just what you need at the end of a long day.

The gym is is well equiped and has an Ipod dock or CD player for your use whilst you workout.

All in all an unreal place to go. Families, singles, couples will all have a great time.

We loved it and we will be back and so will our friends.

Have just returned from 10 days at The Republic and could not be happier. We stayed in one of the new penthouse plunge pools and whilst the glass bathroom was not to our taste the room itself was private and well appointed. At first I was expecting the usual lobby entrance and rooms leading off in every direction like the standard resort however we found the seperation from the pool and bar area to be an advantage as it was not only quieter but gave a sense of independance and not having to cross down hallways, walkways and reception areas when you left your room. The staff were amazing always friendly ready for a chat and very helpful. I cannot understand the previous two reviews perhaps they forgot the thai golden rule to smile and chill out. The resort is frequented by a lot of europeans and being an aussie the budgy smugglers and topless bathing together with the smoking took some getting used to but was good for a laugh. The breakfast was good and fresh I was there to relax and enjoy not to over indulge and the balance was good for us. The location is good we found being located between lamai and chaewang made us explore the whole island more and not just hang in town which would have been the case had we stayed in resorts located within lamai or chaewang. The property is still expanding and yes there are building works going on at present however this did not effect us in anyway and we will be looking forward to returning and checking out the finished product next year. Thumbs up to all the staff particularly Fon and Au your smiles made it great.
