Pleas don't be put off by the negative reviews on here. My husband and I travelled around Thailand last summer. We knew in the middle of our travels was our 2nd wedding Anniversary and wanted to celebrate it somewhere special, I spent weeks trawling the internet looking at every luxury hotel/villa arrangment i could find, I was tempted by some on Koh Samui but in the end View Point won and we booked a 2 night stay in one of the regular rooms and the villa for our anniversary night. I liked the regular rooms and would recommend them, they were pretty reasonable price we thought, you could have found cheaper for sure but at the cost of cleanliness. These rooms were modern and clean and I loved the little balconies they had and the awesome views. I didn't mind the climb up and down each day that some people have complained about on here..it's called excercise people!
Let's come onto the Villa though cause quite honestly that was something else entirely! I only wish we could have have more than one night to enjoy it but that was all our funds would allow, a plunge pool to swim in which you could sit in and watch the ferries sail past in the distant sea was amazing! and the giant jungle shower was pretty snazzy too. The bed was amazing and they had even rolled up the towels on our bed into little elephants! A free fruit bowl was a nice thing to find and free bottled water in our fridge was heaven to me as the Koh Tao heat was a bit too overwhelming for me! We had our own little reception who were only too happy to cater to our every need and the night before they took our order for breakfast and brought it up to us on little trays and we could eat it on our outdoor balcony overlooking the ocean...it was amazing!!
The manager even came in on the morning of our anniversary with his personal laptop to show as an email my Mother in law had sent to the hotel to try and get them to pass on to us which I thought was really sweet of them to do that!
I definitely recommend View Point to all, and forgot to mention our favourite little hangout on Koh Tao was just a stone's throw from View Point too. It was called Babaloo and you could lay in hammocks or on cushions and watch them throw fire and they played some good tunes there too.
