My new husband and I booked this hotel last minute as part of our honeymoon to Thailand, Koh Samui. We only stayed 2 nights before relocating 2 doors down to a different hotel on Chaweng Beach.
When we arrived very early morning, a 10am flight into Samui, the staff were very accommodating and told us our room was ready. We were greeted with a cool drink and cold wet towel and a friendly front of house then promptly shown to our room.
Since booking 2 days before departure, we could only get a Deluxe room instead of a Pool View. The room (201) was garden view, but it was very spacious. It had a queen and a single bed and was not crowded at all. The bathroom was a little dated but we didn't spend that much time in there so it can be overlooked.
The short stroll to the pool and then onto the beach at the back of the hotel is FANTASTIC! The main pool was big enough for adults and a jacuzzi area which doubled for the younger children which was shallow and allowed you to sit. The view was breathtaking on a sunny, cloudless day, into the clear waters of Chaweng Beach. The few steps onto the beach from the pool and into a hotel resort guests only section was superb. You are guaranteed a beach view sun lounge any time of day with unobstructed views of the sea.
The pool staff were great, attentive and alert to all our needs to pool towel and cocktails during our stay.
The included breakfast was very good too. Selection was the usual wide range at most hotels in Thailand or elsewhere but what me and my husband love about Thailand is the 'Egg Station', where a chef is on standby to cook your order of eggs just the way you like them :0) Fried? Scrambled? Boiled? Omelette with the lot? It was awesome to have your eggs freshly fried up or scrambled etc... The chef was great and you could order anything and he would plate it with a smile.
The restaurant manager, Tak, was very nice too and on our last morning, at breakfast, she came over for a friendly chat and to see if everything as ok. We told her that we would definitely recommend the Banana Fan Sea Resort to our family and friends. Plus we would stay longer next time we were in Samui.
