Banana Fan Sea Resort
Ranked #5 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2012

we came here on our honeymoon, and loved it! the service is amazing, the resort is gorgeous and right on the beach. even though Chaweng Beach is can be very loud, Banana Fan Sea is on a very nice and quiet part of the beach which was very enjoyable. Food at their restaurant is AMAZING and very reasonably priced. highly recommended!!

We spent 5 nights at Banana Fan Sea Resort as a family of four, utilising two rooms. Our rooms had everything necessary including bar fridges, air-conditioning, flat screen tv and free wifi although we did stay in the more expensive suites (rooms 416 & 326). Room 416 has its own lounge with separate TV and A/C, beach views and large verandah complete with king sized daybed. Its at the top end of the hotels price range but if privacy and space is required, this is the room to stay! It is difficult to compare resorts, not having stayed at the multitude of other venues on offer, but if we returned to the Chaweng area on Koh Samui, we would without question come back here. In our opinion BFS offers the best combination of pool, restaurant and beach on the Chaweng strip. The hotel staff puts out beach and pool loungers with umbrellas daily as well as fresh beach towels. It is centrally situated, far enough away from the more party orientated resorts futher north up the beach to escape the noise, but close enough if you want to walk to join in! The resort is more old school, offering stand alone garden, pool or beach villa's at a variety of prices. Baitong Restaurant is great too, and not only for a hearty breakfast, but for lunch and dinner too. The staff were always courteous and helpful. Great weather always helps and although not of the hotels doing, we had fantastic sun filled days which added significantly to a great holiday.

Our group of 6 had an amazing time, and we intend to return next year.
At the airport they found us with cold towels and colder bottles of water, exactly what you need in 36 degree heat. While checking in we were given lais and juice, a nice touch.
In all the service was excellent and we found 99 percent of the staff extremely friendly, and amazing to our 3 children.
Bring musquito repellant if you're going to be sitting on your porch alot at night, the shrubbery is beautiful, but buggy.
Great breakfast, great beach, great area of chaweng.
People have mentioned fireworks. They happened twice, didnt wake our children but I can see some people getting annoyed. That said, it happens all over the beach in Chaweng so thats probably not particular to this resort.
All in all amazing holiday.

Room Tip: We saw three rooms. room 327 is right on the beach, best location in the hotel and beautifully appoi...

A family of four, we stayed at BFS in late July 2012. The resort is well laid out and the pool is fantastic. It has two smaller attached pools for children. The breakfast area is beautifully positioned on the beachfront and the position of the resort itself is great, the beach here is superb. The room was spacious, a deluxe room it was. From here to the beach it was no more than 20 seconds.

Only problem with BFS is some of the staff. For starters, when we arrived we realised the room we booked over the internet was a little too small. The receptionist showed us our room and a bigger room but she was obviously not from the Land of Smiles, her persona was cold and she was very matter of fact, almost as if we were being checked into a maximum security prison.

Then while I was sleeping one day on the lounge chair by the pool a staff member woke me up and ordered me not to put towels on pool side lounges as well as beach lounges, as the resort was full. I hastily pointed out that there were four of us, therefore we had every right as paying guests to reserve four lounges with four towels. Ok then, he said.

Several similar incidents somewhat marred our stay at what was otherwise a great resort.

We booked a superior room in this hotel and if you see the pictures of the hotel you expect the paradise. In fact we had a superior room with a window directly into the hotel lobby, closed windows to the street (Chaweng Beach Road) and this was in fact not that what we expected from this Hotel. We managed to upgrade on the 3rd day to a bungalow and stayed there for another 4 days.
If you like touristic areas with a lot of noise, action and firework each day this is the right spot. For all others stay away, this is just not like the area you would stay for relaxing holidays.

Room Tip: don't book the superior rooms, they are all beside the lobby...

My husband and I have just returned from 10 days at Banana Fan Sea, it was our first visit and the resort ticked all the boxes.
Staff constantly friendly and faultless service for whatever your needs may be.
Our only problem was do we sit by the pool today or by the beach? the most relaxing holiday
we have ever taken..as everything was taken care off for us by the staff.
All meals were excellent in variety and produce, a friend and I took the cooknig classes and had
a great time, then joined by our husbands to enjoy and show off our 3 course lunch.
Banana Fan SEa is a resort we will return to.

I have just returned from Banana Fan Sea with my husband and i had an amazing stay. We were greeted with cold face towels and a drink on arrival and the staff were constantly friendly and very welcoming. The rooms were very spacious and were kept spotless daily by the staff. We also had complimentary bottled water in the fridge every day. The pool area was beautiful looking out on to gorgeous sea views and we never had to rush to get a sunbed in a morning. There was always plently to choose from with free clean pool towels daily. The food in the restaurant was very nice and very good value. The thai cuisine was very tasty. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It was beautiful.
