Buri Rasa Village Samui

Reviewed 5 September 2011

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights...the resort looks bigger in the website pictures....the rooms are comfortable...however, we did face a big problem with ant attacks!! they were all around the coffee table and on the bedside table!! We complained to house keeping but it didnt seem to fix the problem permanently! It made it difficult to leave any cookies or food items outside...it always had to be refrigerated!!

the breakfast buffet is very good..however, make sure you ask for the menu of extra items that are also part of the buffet but are not out on the spread (maybe for lack of space)! I however, did not appreciate the fact that the waitor named "DIT" decided to pick and choose the guests he wanted to offer the menu to..when it ought to have been made available for all guests!! When I asked for the menu...he chose to just bring me a cup of coffee instead...!! I had to ask again for the menu until he finally gave it to me...and his reluctance was obvious!!

Also, during check out, the oddest thing happened...the lady at the front desk asked if i had taken their laundry bag from the room...I informed them that i had my dirty laundry in it and if they wanted they could have it back (I have never known any hotel to ask for something as petty as a laundry bag!!)...but they chose not to take the bag back..but instead made me sign a document for house-keeping for their record!!!!

The resort also does not have a gym and their pool is very small. The sea view room is a bit of a joke...since u can only see a tiny partial view of the beach amidst the huge trees blocking your view. But the resort is right on the beach and well situated close to various restaurants and pubs!

My Fiance' and I stayed here for 1 night last October whilst we were in Samui. We only stayed in Samui for 1 night before we moved on to Koh Phagnan for the rest of our trip so maybe I'm not in the best position to review this hotel.

Anyway, the room was nicely presented upon our arrival and the staff were extremely friendly but we couldn't help but notice the sheer amount of mosquitoes landing on our bodies. We were then informed that they had an infestation and were planning on fumigating the place the following day. The Hotel itself was lovely (although the pool is tiny) but it was just somewhat spoiled by the amount of mosquitoes in our room. Seems like they have sorted the problem out now going by other people's reviews so don't let this stop you.

Would probably try somewhere else though if we were back in Samui.

From the moment you arrive at this hotel, a feeling of calm descends on you. Although located on a busy street, the only sounds you hear inside the grounds are the birds in the trees. The hotel is indeed a village: a series of Thai style low rise buildings along a winding path of lush tropical gardens leading to beach which is virtually private.
As mentioned in other reviews, this is a small resort and, although full when I was there, it never seemed crowded. The guests were a multi lingual, mostly up-market mixed bunch including gays, and although there were some small children, I think the resort is more for broad minded couples. The beach is the real drawcard. Crystal clear still water against white sand - the classic tropical island setting. You can lounge on the beach during the day and have romantic candle light dinners there at night.
A surprise for me was the very good western style food on offer. I dined there for six out of the seven nights, venturing out only once to "Spirit House" restaurant nearby. Of course, at Buri Rasa there is plenty of good Thai food as well but it is a surprise that both styles are done equally well. The breakfasts were very good, offering everything from dim sum to eggs benedict. And of course the service from all the forever smiling staff was near perfect.
Although there is no in-house gym, a five minute walk to the nearby Centara hotel fitness centre at a cost of 275 baht will satisfy. At Buri Rasa there is a smallish "infinity" swimming pool, but it is somewhat redundant with the calm and warm waters of the gulf of Thailand just steps away.
I have only a few minor criticisms: I liked the ubiquitous and free wifi internet but it was painfully slow a lot of the time; the rooms should be sprayed for mosquitoes daily; the live music delivered nightly while having dinner can be a bit noisy and it is a pity that it only consists of western style songs rather than Thai - a bit incongruous considering this is otherwise a Thai style resort.

Stayed here for 6 days in August. It was during the rainy season but this side of Bangkok was dry and sunny the whole time we were here. This was a relief as we were here purely for rest and relaxation. Didn't do much sight-seeing as this was not the plan for Samui. Fortunately the Buri Rasa is the place for this. Very good breakfast dining with fresh fruits and a la carte choice of cooked breakfast and coffees as desired. The highlight though, as mentioned many times before. From arrival at reception to checking out there is nothing I can find to complain about. We got a free upgraded room with its own pool and secluded garden and welcome message and gifts on the bed. The little gifts and fruit were changed each day. Washing lines put up and wet clothes hung up that was left on the floor etc. etc. I could go on and on. It's already been said.
If you want to relax with the best possible service - look no further. You will only be delighted.

This hotel would suit everyone, there are couples, families, gays, and all nationalities. The staff are really good, and friendly. No views of the water from the rooms, but you are not in the rooms that much.There are only 35 rooms, so it is not big resort, which makes is good. We had the Delux room, and the reception said they would do a free upgrade, however they were full, so if you come here ask. Each room has it's own big wooden double doors, that lead to your own courtyard. Some courtyards have a spa pool. The delux room is big enought for 2, pushing it for 3 people. Every night there is a turndown service where they leave you a little surprise.
The breakfast is good, and although not as varied as other hotels, if you could not find enought to eat, check your own diet.
The beach area is great if you are like me and get burnt making toast. There is a big tree that offered great shade for me and plenty of sun space for my wife to bake in.
The staff will make sure you are looked after, and the chicken wraps are very tasty.
There is no tour desk, but they will assist by arranging any tours you want. There are a few tour shops nearby, so no big deal.
Best thing is the location. It is at the southern end of Chaweng beach. Further north there are some nice places to stay, but you will get the bands and noise till 2am. This is close enough to walk to the markets and restaurants, but far away so you dont get the noise.

We split out stay between Bophut and here and were glad we did - Chaweng had a fair bit more action but it was great to be able to escape the hustle of the main street and relax in our room.

The pool was nice, pretty small but nice and the beach and chairs were fantastic!

Clean room, great service, excellent resort. Location is pretty good in Chaweng too, seemed to be in the middle of most of the action.

In three words: a perfect place! One of the best resorts we have ever been to. Everything is taking care of. Staff deserves praise: friendly, very attentive, warm and personal. Would like to mention especially Wat, Song, Chart, Tor, Ting and Joy. Food and drinks are excellent. Nightly turn down service comes with a little treat. Beautiful beach (partly reserved for guests only) right in front of the hotel where drinks and nibbles are being served as well. Chaweng street and night life is on the other side just a few steps away. Easy: prices for food and drinks are quoted including all applicable taxes. All in all a fabulous place. We are really looking forward to staying here again!
