We love the Nikki beach concept. We been to a few of the Nikki destinations, - and we like the people who also enjoys the concept. It´s kind of a special club for special people, - just like people with dogs or babies. However, - the Nikki beach concept is quite different on the Koh Samui destination, - and people should be aware of this, - so they dont go with completely different expectations of what to find.

The service is top - very attending staff, giving 100%.
The food is great and great value for money.
The price is expensive, - but that you know already right ?

For the bungalows, - there is no privacy at all. Your balcony will face another bungalows balcony 10 meter from you, - but it´s really not a problem unless you are shy and look for complete privacy. The views of the sunset and the beach is stunning, - and pool and facillities are in very good shape. The bakery makes fantastic baguettes, - you can buy and bring home to your bungalow with for example cheese and ham.

So Nikki Beach Koh Samui, - got it all - but still fails to deliver if you are looking for fun or party, - and now we tell you why. First of all, - Nikki Beach is in generel famous for their parties, - which in almost all other Nikki resorts is an daily event. Normally you can meet and hang out with people from all over the world, - but not on Samui .....

Due to regulations, - the music is so low during the daytime - that is almost non existing. When the clock hits 5 PM, - they even turn in more low, - and this continues untill 11 PM where the whole resort is closing down. No DJ on weekdays, - no entertainment at any kind ... on weekdays, - and not even any sign of a party on fridays and saturdays. Can this be true ? - unfortunately yes.

So what happens is, - that most customers are seeking other venues during the stay, - leaving the resort more or less isolated, - which it already is - as there is a 30 kilometer drive to Chaweng where it all seems to be happening. So no one just pops by Nikki Beach, - unless they have booked in advance.

Ok, - the sunday brunch is really great, - its an all day party with a mix of islanders an people staying in the resort, - but please note its all day - not all night.

So the verdict is - this is not a party place at all, - but mostly like every other resort just with a much better service. The place is screaming to become what it should be; Nikki Beach !, and we really hope that it will find its way through local regulations etc, - so it can become much more alive. Anyway - we would come back for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: All bungalows are of same quality. Beach front bungalows are not really worth paying extra for in ou...

We loved Nikki Beach Bungalow Resort! We found the deal on Groupon back in February and after looking at the trip advisor reviews decided it was a steal. I cannot being to explain how awesome our experience was! We arrived late Saturday night, just in time for the Sunday Party.

The Sunday party was a lot of fun! We met a lot of really great people.... There is a DJ playing lounge beats, along with a Fench guy rocking out on instruments. It's a proper day drinking party.

The morning breakfasts were simple but delish -- I'd recommend the pad Thai or the rice soup. The bungalows are well appointed -- nice upgrades, but not over the top. Very comfortable beds, which is always a treat when traveling Southest Asia. Love the shower as well! The 270* windows were also a treat.

The property is well kept, and offers fantastic places to watch the sunset. Warnings: if you want to be right in the thick of the action, this is not the hotel for you! If you like to relax and don't mind riding a motorbike around to explore then definitely book it!

I would like to take a moment to specifically recognize a couple of staff members who went above and beyond: Peter -- the most amazing chef that is willing to try new recipes. Eddy -- superb host & JD -- the fabulous intern who definitely picked the right career! Thanks guys :-) you made our stay at Nikki Beach worth the 24 hours of travel time.

Room Tip: Any of the bungalows are a fabulous stay!

Decent Mojitos and some good progressive House playing.

Too many screaming kids running around

I simply adore Nikki Beach !
It might not be the best Sunday Brunch, but the atmosphere is unbeatable. The view is spectacular and the DJs are the best.
The staff are friendly and the service is great.
But may be they need to adjust their "cooling devices" like utilize more fans to keep the diners cool..
Every time we stay in Koh Samui we go to the Sunday Brunch and dress up in White :D
Simply: I'm in love with Nikki Beach !

I only stayed one night in the Bungalow to experience the 'Amazing Sunday Brunch' the next day...

The bungalow is very spacious - with stylish minimalistic interiors equipped with all the free wifi and a over-hanging TV at the corner of the room in front of the bed... Overall, a very comfortable room and bed for a much needed rest on a Saturday night.

The Amazing Sunday Brunch is what I would like to rave about...
The buffet spread, as one would expect to be sumptuous with very delightful options from Thai to Intercontinental... I love their lobster pasta, and of course my all time anytime favorite: chocolate mousse cake with strawberry bits...
Usually after a big meal like that, I would be lazing on the sun bed and go into what I call a 'food coma' for a few hours.... but the good energy from both the friendly staff and the party ambiance just kept me going....the best vibes yet, come from the music by their resident DJ that day...

Wow - what an amazing Sunday afternoon pool party that was! Beautiful people dancing to great music into sunset... This was what I find worth raving about and I would like to give a 5 star recommendation.

Sunday’s Party Brunch at Nikkibeach is something that nobody should be missing when they stay at Koh Samui. You get everything that is important for a successful and relaxing Sunday: delicious food, good music, a paradisial location with the view on the sea, a clean pool and really comfortable sun beds.
I can definitely recommend staying at Nikkibeach resort as well, since it is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. It is located on a quiet and groomed beach and offers a romantic atmosphere with a picturesque view on the sunset. You won’t miss anything there, because they offer excellent service and have really friendly staff (especially JD: thx for all your support and recommendations ;)) If I came to Koh Samui again I would not considered for a second to stay at any other hotel. So see you soon guys ;)

Just got back from our honeymoon here. The resort is amazing and staff is fab!! Free bikes for guest. The restaurant is pretty pricey. My husband and I took the bikes and went to the little convience store close to the resort and bought tons of beer and snacks. There is also a small restaurant when you go out of the resort to the right. Not the best, but super cheap. The bungalos are so cute and amazing. We used the nikki beach taxi and the price was crazy! When asking for a taxi, ask for a metered regular city taxi to be called. We did the zip lining adventure, which was so fun. We also went to ride an elephant at a park which was cool, but after seeing the tiger cub unchained and hit because he wouldn't take a bottle, we had to leave. It was very disturbing.

Totally recommend this resort. We got it through a groupon, which was awesome. Breakfast is so good and included. Was VERY quiet and relaxing. VERY far from the city life.

Room Tip: All bungalows are the same
