“Home away from home”
Reviewed 3 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I've just returned from a subliminal two week stay at The Hideaway Suites. Originally planned as a week long girls trip with two friends I caught island fever and was inspired to stay on by myself for an additional week to complete my PADI Open Water Diver course. I didn't think twice about remaining at THS and by the end of the second week had extended my stay again for one extra night - it's hard to leave when you find such a perfect place!

The property is very much luxury boutique hotel meets B&B, minus the in-house breakfast (if you stay for a week or more owner John will give you a voucher redeemable towards breakfast at the cafe across the road). The gardens and furnishings are immaculate, the highest level of attention has been paid to every detail and no expense has been spared, from the incredibly comfortable beds and custom made closets to the toiletries (two types of cotton pads!) and the tea lights strung up outside our rooms lit every evening. There isn't a thing that hasn't been thought of!

It's worth mentioning that the guest rooms are mere steps from John's own home however the layout is such that you never feel intrusive or intruded upon. No matter what room you're in you have your own privacy and seclusion. That said whenever we needed anything John was available to help - he took incredibly good care of our friend when she was ill one day, gave us a lift to a local car rental and helped me run errands the week I stayed alone. He even went so far as to order me a takeaway one night when I was late back from diving without any prompting at all, just to make sure I didn't go without dinner!

I must add that I felt completely safe and secure during my second week as a solo female traveller - there's 24hr security at the end of the driveway so coming home at night, whatever time, was never a cause for concern.

To sum things up if you're looking for unique, secluded and luxurious accommodation then this has to be your first pick - don't look any further because you can't beat the price, or the views!

Nestled on a hill in beautiful and peaceful choeng mon, the hideaway suites are a true gem and feel like your very own private luxurious villa away from home!

The view from the terrace and bedroom bay-windows are breath-taking with the sea at the horizon decorated with other villa roof tops, palm trees, a professionally manicured garden and lush greenery. The terrace has 4 very comfortable chaise-long lounge beds, a king-size canopy bed, 2 four person seating tables, an inviting infinity pool that you can swim in and lounge about next to, as well as a state of the art gas-grill BBQ for personal use.

The beach is a 1-minute stroll down the hill through the other Kanda residences villas, where you also have access to the rock pool restaurant, pool, bar for cocktails (happy hour is 5-6pm), and the beach. The airport is a 4-5min drive away, however because of the great location of the hideaway suites you do not hear any planes landing or taking off as that happens over Bohput and Chaweng, respectively.

The Hideaway suites facilities are all of a 5-star top notch quality standard, meticulously taken care of, new and spotless. The rooms all have a large safe, LCD TV screens, a fan, AC, and even a mini-fridge aesthetically hidden inside the desk. A surprising plus of the two downstairs rooms (guest king and guest twin) are the additional outdoor private garden showers, while the upstairs guest master has a two person bath tub with a view onto the sea.

Breakfast is at the coffee shop across the road. If you want to eat-in at night (or during the day) there is cutlery for take-aways, and fresh home-filtered water is provided and refilled daily to be placed in the mini-fridge in the rooms.

There is a yoga institute a 3min walk up the road, a massage lady can also be called to the villa and she can give you a Thai massage for approx 500bhat either outside on the terrace, in your room, or on the professional massage table in the basement den.

You have your privacy throughout your stay, as the rooms are dusted and bedsheets changed once every three days. But if you want the cleaning lady to dust your room, make the bed every day (sheets will still only be changed once every three days) and even do your laundry, that can be easily arranged if you ask John and tip her to do so. But make no mistake this is not a place where you get serviced on completely 24/7. It has the perfect balance of service, genuine hospitality and privacy.

We were a group of three girls, we felt very safe, and very well taken care of throughout our entire stay. John was ever so hospitable and able to advise us and answer our questions, as well as take us to the pharmacy/ store / and jeep rental shop. I would definitely advise in getting transport for at least a day or two to be able to see other parts of the island at leisure, as the location's tranquility does mean that not much is at walking distance and the nearest grocery shop is about a 3min drive away. But if you don't drive, there are many alternatives - the adjacent Kanda Resort does have taxis, there are Tuk-Tuks that drive past every 5-10min or so, as well as Island taxis, and John is also willing to take you into town and help you collect take aways.

A big hug and thank you to John, as well as his two cats, lucky and coffee, for making our 1st stay in koh Samui so incredible! I would definitely come back to visit and stay here again!

“Perfect on all levels”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We just got back from an amazing stay at Hideaway Suites. The rooms, villa, location and John's attention to detail are all spot on. This is one of those places which turns out to be beyond your expectations. We were so glad not to be in Chaweng or other busy beach areas or in any of the crumbling, large beach properties we saw during our trip. We even toured some of the so called fancy, five star expensive hotels but agreed that Hideaway Suites offered the best of both worlds. It has the look and feel and comfort of five star but not the price tag or the impersonalized feel. We felt like we were in a villa but with the frills of a hotel. This was a great location with just enough to do within the villa or nearby. Rooms are tastefully done, amenities are all five star, pool and villa feel luxurious and John is there help you with tips and recommendations. This place has the perfect vibe that you would like from your beach vacation. We would love to be back!

“Fantastic Property and Wonderful Hospitality”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A group of 4 of us just returned from a 4-night stay at Hideaway Suites where we stayed in the Guest King and Guest Twin rooms. We had a fantastic experience and would recommend anyone who’s going to Samui and looking for a independent/boutique hotel / service apartment experience to look no further than Hideaway Suites given the quality of the villa, pool, garden and John’s wonderful hospitality.

John picked/dropped us at the airport, made car rental a breeze (car showed up at the villa within 10 minutes of asking him if he could arrange a rental car at a reasonable price), recommended a great restaurant for a birthday celebration of one member of our group (and even gave us a discount card to use for the meal!). He also let us have a late check out so we could freshen up before heading to the airport after a full day at the beach.

The pool at the villa and seating area is wonderful and we were also able to use the other pools in the Kanda resort, which adjoins the villa. The location is also very convenient as the Choeng Mon beach (much nicer/quieter than Chaweng) is a short drive and it’s quite easy to also go over to Bophut/Chaweng if one wants to go for the beaches/meals. A large yoga center is short walk away and we were easily able to go over for a class one morning as well.

We would definitely consider going back to Samui just to experience another stay at Hideaway Suites and John’s great hospitality!

“Breathtaking glimpse into living in paradise…..”
Reviewed 8 February 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed with John and Sasitorn back in October 2013.
It was the last stop of our holiday in Thailand, and we were by all means completely spoilt, amazed and delighted we had chosen this as our last destination and accomadation for our time in Koh Samui…. as they say you should always end on a high note!

The property itself is beautiful with amazing surroundings and lovely facilities. The main king room is simple perfect, the decor put together by John and Sasitorn is wonderful and spacious. The entire grounds of the property are enchanting and just what Thailand is all about…

Access to the neighbouring resort facilities is so simple and easy, and there are plenty of eating and activity options very close by.

Joh was great with suggestions, arranging transport and providing enough involvement to help us plan our stay without being too pushy or over the top.

The property itself functions similar to a serviced apartment/ BnB. The general grounds are shared with other guests if they are staying at the time, but each room has its own access so you do get a lot of privacy. The pool within the property is lovely and clean and the resort facilities next door are great as well.

They made us feel like we ourselves were actually living in paradise. There were no questions or requests to big… Joh was able to refill our drinking water as required. Pls note this is no a resort or hotel as such… if u require to be waited on 24hrs a day etc then this is not for you…! We loved it!

U are required to made your own bed, there rooms are cleaned and towels changed on the 3rd day of your stay. If you utilise dishes etc u can choose to clean them yourself or leave them in a bucket outside John and Sasitorns house.

If you truly want to experience Thailand and all its beauty and surroundings and feel like u are literally living in paradise for a few days this is the place for u!

Thank-you very much John for making our last few days in Thailand, and only stay in Koh Samui so fantastic! We loved staying at your property and couldn't have asked for anything else at all! We hope we get to come back again...

“perfect location, it's a place you can totally relax.”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

When i first stepped into the suites, i was surprised, the arrangement of the suits, the view from the big balcony.... it's so awesome!!

The room is awesome. And the balconany makes it better!
There are leisure bed and chairs on yard, and also swimming pool, which i loved soooo much. We even spent one night to sleep out on that leisure bed, which was great.

The host Johnny and Honey are very nice and friendly person. Johnny has been so helpful to rent a car, or scooter, and to tell us which are the funny places to go in Koh Samui.

Another point we really love this place is that it is very close to Chaweng beach, but a little bit distance from the noisy and loudy, have a very quite and realx enviorment. It only takes a few minutes from this location to Chaweng beach,which is really great.

This is the place i would love to come again!
