“Fantastic Family Holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Easter 2012. We arrived totally out of energy after a botched flight schedule from Singapore. We were soon in paradise at Buri Rasa, what a great place for a holiday, the grounds, the staff, the pool/bar staff, we could not ask for more. Our son Oliver soon had the attention of the pool attendants, what great people they all were this made our holiday so much more than we had ever imagined.
We had a Dip Pool room, this was a great idea having a 7 year old who is super active. The pool and beach were great as we could see the kids playing from the deck area no matter if in the pool or on the beach out the front. The staff also had a keen eye on the children running around, they made a point of looking out for them.
We will be back for Songkran in 2013, we would recommend Buri Rasa to families or couples, it is very private and not an overly large resort. We wish we were still there.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with family

This place has excellent service from the minute you arrive. Walk into your large, home like room and cute elephant towels, your name written in sticks, fruit, and a selection of pillows to suit your needs awaits. Rooms are super clean and large and after traveling for two weeks, this has been the best sleep I have had, fantastic bed. Breakfast is amazing, with a buffet of high quality food...you can even make your own Bloody Mary with as much vodka as you like! As well as the buffet you can order off the menu and choose American or Asian style breakfast. Thankfully the coffee is good here too! The hotel is amongst the busy streets and right next to the crystal bathtub warm waters. Everything is fantastic about this place.

Buri Rasa is in a great location - private part of Chaweng beach with warm, clear blue green waters, absolutely gorgeous!! The tide was rough the first few day we arrived but perfect after that. The hotel is a calm oasis from the busy pedestrian street. Service is wonderful - cant say enough about ARM at the Bar! He is awesome! Great service with a smile. We ordered lots of drinks & food poolside everything was great. Perfect relaxing vacation. We got good oil massages at the spa. The rooms are like little homes with a quaint pathways to the front door. Clean & comfortable. Nice little touches of welcome fruit and sweets each night of our stay made us feel very welcome! A little expensive compared to hotels in bangkok but def recommend.

What a fantastic place. At the quiet end of the beach, and with a small number of guests. A different feel to other Chaweng Hotels. Couples only, but perfect for that romantic treat.

Well-travelled friends had reported favourably on the Buri Rasa on Thailand's Koh Samui and our 5-night stay in June 2012 confirmed their favourable assessment in every respect. Over the years my wife and I have enjoyed hospitality at many top holiday resorts on Bali and at Phuket, Samui, Krabi and other Asian destinations and the Buri Rasa rates with the very best. Its prime location on Chaweng Beach, the pleasing ambience of its cooling gardens and laneways and its superbly attentive staff help it stand out from the crowd. We'd gone there with some misgivings because management advised us a few weeks ahead that construction would be starting on a massive resort complex next door. They gave us a money-back cancellation option and we did consider going elsewhere because we really needed a good beach break. Internet research failed to reveal another place that looked as nice so we opted to proceed with our original plans and we're so glad we did.The Buri Rasa generously offered to help us find another place if noise was intolerable when we got there. A cold bottle of bubbly welcomed us to our room plus a delightful message in flower petals. Each night staff left lovely little hand-written cards and local sweets on the bed. A little corny perhaps but we loved it. We barely noticed building noise on the new site or on the other side where a resort is nearly complete. Nightclub noise from across the street was no problem either. The Buri Rasa's traditional style rooms may be aging a little but they are still charming and there's plenty of room for hanging wet togs. Hot water was reliable and the bed was comfortable although the old colonial style made it a bit hard to get in/out of. Laundry service was very good. Breakfast was more than ample and food quality generally excellent Lovely to have dinner on the beachfront and the small bar gave top service. The shaded beach area is wonderful and staff were fantastic, even ensuring no fruit fell from the beautiful big beachfront shade trees onto our heads! We were able to swim in the ocean every day virtually at any time. Each morning towels were set out on on our preferred recliner chairs and staff looked after our every need. A dozen or so Australians celebrating a bunch of 30th birthdays seemed to enjoy themselves immensely. We had magnificent weather and the Buri Rasa was perfect for our needs. It was one of the best holidays we've ever had (and there's been a few) and we felt it representated good value. No place is perfect for every need but really it would be a tough customer who finds cause for serious complaint about the Buri Rasa. We recommend it without hesitation to anyone wanting a well-appointed, superbly managed B&B type beach haven. We'd go back there tomorrow!

Room Tip: Upstairs room are a little more private than the ground level rooms which have their own courtyards.

If you are after the best service , best beach, and great accomadation look no further Buri Rasa deserves all the aclaim it gets . Thankyou to all the staff for making this a very special place. Yes there is a bit of construction happening but because everything else is so good you don't even notice it. Just a short stroll from all the action you'll be glad your not in all the action can become over welming at night time. It is all the little extras that make this hotel special, treats at the pool champagne on arrival, all bookings for outings taken care of you name it they do it.

Room Tip: Some rooms have thier own plunge pool we did not and it was perfect

More like a good 3 star hotel.

Buri Rasa is sandwiched between 2 construction sites. Not only is it an eye-sore when looking from the beach, but the noise will wake you up in the morning.

Breakfast is decent - bloody mary station was a nice touch.

Chaweng has become so filthy in recent years. Better off staying in Bo Put or Mae Nam
