“wedding and family”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

In March this year I and 25 of my family members and friends stayed at Kanok Buri Resort for my wedding. I had travelled around Thailand before arriving here and this resort was the most beautiful. With it's gorgeous little villas and greenery throughout it was so relaxing. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Gift the organiser of our wedding was amazing, over conversing in emails for a year organising the wedding and never seeing the place it was a big risk. But the resort is exactly like it's photos, if not more beautiful and my wedding was more than perfect. Every single detail was exact from the flowers down to the table settings I would recommend it to anyone. It was a wedding I and my guests will never forget and I can't wait to go back again.

Room Tip: We had people staying in all of the rooms and they were all beautiful. But if you are after somethin...

An amazing resort in a beautiful peaceful part of Koh Samui. The staff are always happy to help, polite, informative and knowledgeable on all attractions around the island.
The service is fantastic. From the airport transfer, restaurant staff, house keeping and especially the reception staff.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting an island holiday without the constant hustle and bustle of a commercial strip.

My wife and I stayed at Kanok Buri and loved it. The staff were very helpful in making plans and travel arrangements. The rooms are very nice, with great cleanliness. The resort is very quiet at night which was very peaceful. Breakfast was included, which was excellent and had a great selection. Motor bike rentals were very straight forward and they didn't require a passport as collateral. The beach and pool are both beautiful. Not a single complaint with our stay.

We recently stayed there for 6 days, part romantic get away, part work on a book. I can't say enough about our gorgeous room - we could hear the waves from the private beach 300 feet out our door. Or the scent of flowers or frogs in the ponds and lily pads winding their way through the property. Or the food, which was wonderful. But best, very best of all, is the staff. The young man who was our waiter went so out of his way to find us outlets and extension cords for when we had to work. The receptionist went so far out of her way to help us find the best room, and when I left my valuable ring behind, they went out of their way to find out how to get it back to me - quickly. We're going back there, for sure. Oh, did I say the beach is secluded, with the moon shining on it through palm trees?

Room Tip: ask for a room on the ocean side

We didn't stay here but we made the 60 minute drive 3 times from Fisherman's Village to dine here. The setting is 10 out of 10 as you gaze out at the sea, 10 metres away. During the day the views are of surrounding islands and the nearby Thai Naval Base. At night you are treated to a million stars and nothing but frogs to accompany your dinner. The service from the staff, particularly Zine & Oh was really great and they put the rest of the Island of Samui to shame for kindness alone. The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone, whether you just want a caesar salad or a delicious Australian filet mignon, they've got it! This is well off the beaten track and you are rewarded with great service, excellent food and setting to rival any, anywhere. Beautiful spot. 8 out 10.

I recently stayed here with my husband and small baby. We didn't necessarily seek to stay here (we were in Koh Samui for a wedding and this was one of the nearby accommodation options) but we were very pleasantly surprised with what we found.

We stayed in a pool villa on the beach side of the resort. It was absolutely perfect for us, as we could take our little bub swimming in our own private pool and not have to worry about other people splashing around. It also meant that we could swim whilst bub was napping which gave us a lot more flexibility than most bigger resorts.

Our room was beautifully decorated with thai furniture. The bed was a gorgeous four poster and there was also a small sitting area off to the side with a day bed and tv.

The bathroom had the biggest bath tub I've ever seen. Overall the bathroom could have done with an update as the shower recess was quite old and unattractive. This would be my only complaint about the room though.

The villa pool was quite small and shallow (only came up to my waist) but I liked this feature as it was definitely kid-friendly and there was a bigger pool (as well as the ocean) only about 50 metres away if you wanted to splash around and actually swim. Please note though that there is no pool safety fencing at all - our bub is not yet crawling so this wasn't a problem for us but could be for people with toddlers.

The service at the resort was wonderful. We were greeted with a welcome drink and advice that we had been given a free upgrade from our original booking. The front counter staff were always on call to assist wherever possible (taxi transfers/spa bookings/etc).

There is a restaurant on the beach at the resort that makes both Thai and western dishes. We only ordered the thai dishes and they were absolutely delicious. Breakfast was a little limited (very small portion of bacon and eggs) but was sufficiently supplemented with fresh fruit, toast and endless coffee. The restaurant staff were all very welcoming and attentive.

The location of the resort is a bit out of the way for people wanting to explore the island without independent transport. Essentially, it is as far away from the airport and Chewang as you can possibly get. That said, they do offer a free one-way shuttle to Chewang and the distance makes for a lovely, quiet getaway if that is what you're after.

Overall, I really loved my stay here and would absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere quiet and secluded without having to break the bank to achieve it. It is also very easy for families.

We were group of 6 and enjoyed every bit of it, carry a sheesha along with you if you are going as friends.The rooms were beautiful, airy, big and super comfortable! We stayed in the pool villa closest to the beach. It was perfect in every way! The staff are amazing and cater to your very need! The welcome drink is amazing and the warm towel presented during your wait for check in is just very refreshing. The food and drinks at the restaurant are amazing. One can have there own boats and do kayaking on there own in the beach connected to the resort. Its a bit expensive compared to the other properties around but a good value for money. The property was very well maintained and had a nice ambiance. Being an architect i would like to appreciate the space planning and well designed landscape around and inside the property for a divine feeling. The only issue is that Its located a bit afar from Bophut, where the city is majorly active. Kanok Buri resort is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!
