Had an amazing stay at the Banana Fan Sea Resort. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and how friendly they were. The location was obviously a strength, being so close to the centre of chaweng but also not right in the centre. Would particularly like to thank the staff though who made the stay so great!

I recently stayed in July at Banana Fan Sea Resort with 3 friends and we had a fantastic time because of the lovely resort and the friendly accommodating staff. They did so much for us and always had a smile on their faces. The resort is in a great position on a lovely beach with shops and restaurants at your doorstep if you so desire. The massage ladies at Banana Fan Sea were amazing and helped to teach us a bit of Thai.They even put on a lovely birthday party for a group of us that had birthdays. With Edgar the musician playing on the beach, we danced under the stars most nights. The buffet breakfast was delicious and the restaurant delivered top class and reasonably priced food. We even did a cooiking class which was good value and fun and delicious. An idyllic holiday was had by all.

This was our 2nd time staying at Banana Fan Sea Resort for 8 nights. The resort is on the perfect beach stretch in Chaweng. It was nice to see some familiar faces and they remembered the names of our children. Staff are friendly and always smiling. Coffee at breakfast was excellent probably the best on the island. As we travelled with a large group of friends and family, Yot did an amazing job to pick us up and return to airport and help out where possible. Deluxe rooms are large and have excellent air conditioning. What I love the most about BFS is the banana bread and the beautiful morning views of Chaweng beach at breakfast time. Thanks again for another memorable stay and we hope to see you again soon.

My wife and I were very satisfied with every aspect of our stay at Banana Fan Sea Resort. The location of the resort is perfect. Right on a beautiful stretch of Chawang Beach and also close to the shops and restaurants. Our room had a newly refurbished bathroom which was great. If only it wasn't so far away we would return every year!

Note about Chawang Beach: We were in Koh Samui in June and the tides were very low at this time. After walking up and down Chawang Beach we were very glad we chose Banana Fan Sea Resort as it is on the nicest part of the beach. Due to the low tides, the beach in front of the hotels on the north end of the beach (north of Ark Bar) was swampy and not clean. You can see where the beach makes a transition on a satellite view of the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms in the garden area near the beach are the best.

We stayed here for 4 nights which is on a quieter part of the island but there are nearby restaurants and markets within a couple of minutes walk.

As it was my partner's birthday, I had emailed ahead for a bouquet of flowers to be left in the room upon our arrival. This was done in addition to my partner's name being spelled out in thin leaves on the bed which was a lovely touch. The staff also remembered his name and wished him a happy birthday whenever we arrived for breakfast. The hotel also presented us with a birthday cake to celebrate the day.

The pool area is well situated next to the beach and the pool water was very warm. Taking a few steps down you were on the beach and the hotel had an enclosed beach area for its guests.

We dined on the beach restaurant and they had a friendly karaoke singer who plays music nightly and also takes requests.

Thank you all for a friendly and pleasant stay.

We stayed at Banana Fan Sea for 14 nights in June/July, we arrived at reception and we were greeted by the biggest smiles and the most pleasant staff.
The room we stayed in was just amazing located on the beach and close to all the resorts facilities.
The staff are just amazing and their services were outstanding. Every day we were greeted with smiles and a Sawasdee.
The resort's location is at the quieter and best part of Chaweng beach, but close enough to the night life if you felt like a night out. The resort is located right on the beach, so it was great to be able to choose between relaxing at the beach or at the pool for the day. The resort has opened a new beach bar where I could find the best Mojito's in Samui made by Jee.
We hope to return in December.
Thank you for all the staff at Banana Fan Sea for making our 2 week stay so great and very special.
