“Dining on the beach doesn't get much better”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

We didn't stay at the Dara hotel but we ate there twice on our holiday. We went for a walk along the beach on our first night and I fell in love with the look of it. It's right on the water with lovely white teepees, lanters and candles. I looked at my husband and said we're coming here tomorrow, and we did. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is beautiful. The first time we came we had a prawn salad and chicken satays for entree and tuna steak with veg and a pizza for main. All of the food was delicious. Fresh produce and lots of flavour. The tuna was amazing. 2nd time was on our last night. We just got mains, we had garlic pepper prawns and duck breast with roast potatoes & red wine sauce. Again everything was delicious, my hubbys only complaint was there wasn't enough prawns! but it was very good for the price. It's a little expensive for Samui but cheap compared to home. I would definitely return.

“Could do better!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We had a fresh fish platter and it was plentiful but alas most of the fish apart from the red snapper , was a bit overcooked. The buffet salad had no much choices and the bread and bread sticks were stale. The staff polite and attentive and the ambiance pleasant. The entertainment was ...I don't want to be unkind so I will not say.
Advice: Mind the little step in the middle! And remember that you are seating outside if rain is foretasted.
