“Luxurious Holiday Getaway”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

My husband and I stayed at Buri Rasa from 14 Dec - 20 Dec. We had an amazing stay! No complaints! The staff was extremely professional and the accommodations were excellent. We were upgraded to a Superior Deluxe room upon arrival (at no charge). It was very spacious and the bed was super comfortable! The hotel is located right on Chaweng Beach Road, with easy access to many restaurants and shopping. However, the hotel is far away enough from the "downtown" area which makes it quiet and peaceful. Buri Rasa's landscape is serene and beautiful. It's like a secret garden at the beach. The breakfast buffet is FANTASTIC! There is a wide variety of food, with hot options that change daily. There is also a menu with gourmet coffee, American breakfast selections, and Thai breakfast selections made to order. I used to live in Thailand and have stayed at many hotels at many different beaches -- Buri Rasa is by far the best one I have stayed at. It's definitely worth the money. There is currently construction underway on both sides of Buri Rasa. You can hear construction going on, but it wasn't anything that kept us awake at night or ruined our vacation. The fact that construction is going on, actually made our little stretch of beach much calmer and more private! The hotel has many amenities -- wifi throughout the hotel, computers for use in the lobby, a little library to borrow books and DVDs, a spa, a wonderful infinity pool, and plenty of chairs on the beach (we never had an issue getting towels, chairs, or umbrellas!).

The staff at the hotel was fantastic. They took care of our every need! Our room was thoroughly cleaned daily; the beds were turned down every night; we had a unique dessert/sweet nightly with hand-written notes; snacks were delivered at the pool and beach every day around 11am; and anything else that we needed! The staff helped us book day trips and answered any question/addressed any concern that we had. Specifically, Ice and Aom were amazing. Tick (by the pool) also ensured that we were always taken care of! He even brought us outdoor pillows when he realized that we were falling asleep on the beach chairs. The staff even booked us a private car to the airport (which costs as much as a public taxi, 500 baht) and packed us a boxed breakfast since we had to leave so early.

We had a perfect holiday and will definitely choose Buri Rasa if we return to Koh Samui. While there are many cheaper options of places to stay on the island, you get what you pay for. The service, value, and quality are definitely unmatched here. We highly recommend Buri Rasa!

I have stayed at a lot of hotels around the world and this hotel definitely comes top of the list for service. As soon as we arrived, check in was efficient, the staff explained and showed us all the different facilities on offer as well as explaining all the amenities available in the room. this hotel offers so many little touches such as complimentary desserts sent to the room each evening from the chef with a personalised note. The food in the restaurant was the best Thai food i had in Thailand. The location of the hotel is excellent, walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and bars in Chaweng and only a short taxi ride to the airport. When i return to Koh Samui, i will definitely be staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the standard room and we were extremely happy for it. however if you have a bigger budg...

Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay, the rooms, the little touches, the service, and the food.

Comments:
- Noise from the neighboring construction side did not both me at all, I didn't hear it most of the time.
- Service was always good and in many cases great. There was one young man and one young lady at the restaurant who I thought were amazing to the point where I will remember them.
- AC was very good in the bedroom (remote controlled so you don't have to get out of bed).
- DVD player and LCD TV in the room for rainy days
- Dinner was good, but we are foodies so we sought out two of the best restaurants on the island for even better meals.
- Breakfast was great: I ate Fried Rice with Pork, a Chocolate Croissant, Banana Bread, and Yogurt every morning. On our last day we left so early they gave us a boxed breakfast.
- The hotel has a van or two that can take you around instead of finding a local taxi. They will charge you but by western standards the price difference is negligibly higher than taxis you'll find on the street, but way more convenient. I highly recommend taking the service, they will even pick you up if you call when you are ready. Note: both our journeys were only 10-15 minutes; I don't know if they will take you longer distances to other ends of the island.
- Pool is small but good, looks nice
- Drinks at the bar are good
- The bathroom in our unit was kind of outside because it has a small screen on one side and a wall on 3 sides. You could leave the door open to the bedroom but this exposes you to mosquitoes as they will inevitably find their way through a screen. Note: In November there are some mosquitoes all over the island, but not many. With DEET you are fine. We just were strict about keeping the bathroom door closed to mosquitoes couldn't enter out bedroom. This is not a deal breaker, just a heads up.

Room Tip: Many of the downstairs rooms have a small dip pool outside the room (but behind gates). Room 25 and...

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. They succeed in in the difficult task of making you feel special. The staff are amazing and do all they can to make sure you have a good stay. There are also lots of nice little touches which help to make you feel special (e.g. helping you arrange activities, leaving you a different snack in your room each day when you come back to your room such as selection of Thai fruit, local sweets etc). The breakfast in the morning is excellent with a wide selection of very nice food. Also the location of the hotel is excellent as you are close to the airport so it's easy to get to, it is also on the main street if you want to go out (shopping, restaurants, bars) and of course it is right on the beach. Also as it is made up of of different apartments instead of just a big hotel there aren't many people which means it feels quiet and relaxed. In addition the apartments are very nice with good facilities and a large size. I would really recommend staying here it is an amazing hotel.

Our family stayed in Buri Rasa Village for 5 days. We have never been in Koh Samui before and found out that Buri Rasa provides a good value. We were looking for a nice sea and a nice beach and we found it. My kids 5 and 8 had a great time as well as we did. The staff was very helpful and devoted to make sure we had a great time. Buri Rasa is on the main road of the Chaweng beach area so many restaurants, market and obviously shopping. The Beach Club is the restaurant and we eat multiple times there. Always enjoyed it. But the dining on the beach was very special. Their menu had Thai and international food as well and their breakfast buffet had many options. The staff does an excellent job setting up the tables and lights on the beach. The city had a power outage and the Hotel generator made the situation go smooth. We were told in advance that there is construction going on on both sides of the hotel during the day. It was a little bit noisy specially when trying to have a relaxing massage. Other than that it did not bother us. I recommend it and will definitely come back.

we stayed at Buri Rasa for 4 nights and 5 days in November and I agree with most of the other reviewers, we regretted not staying longer. We stayed in room 32 closer to the beach, and it had an awesome and unquie private courtyard view. I absolutely loved that view!!! that view is now on my iphone and ipad as default screen view, it was that good!!!

I also think what made this place great were the people. Right from the the moment we stepped in, Lisa the property manager was super super friendly and helpful in making us feel welcomed. Other resort crew like Arm, Pong, Aom, Chart and especially Ice, were so so awesome and helpful that i dont i have met more friendly and warm crew in my life!!!

I also have to mention the food - very nice breakfast selection and you MUST visit the beach restaurant - beach club atleast once. the ambiance is absolutely awesome and very romantic. Not to mention the cool sand and the wind hitting you while you get to eat fresh sea food - its the best!!! we also loved the nightly treats they left us - perfect end to your awesome evening.

Just to keep few other things in mind - there is construction going on and sometime it can be loud. it didn' bother us too much because one day in rained in the morning (so there was no construction that day) and other days we were touring the islands. Also when you want to get a cab, just go outside the resort, there are plenty of cabs, you will end of paying only 300 baht instead of 500 baht that the hotel was charging us to get a cab (which i thought was outrageous).

All in all it was an amazing trip and i cannot thank enough Buri Rasa and its crew enough. I am already looking forward to coming back here :-).

This hotel was stunning, if you like the more traditional style rooms. I typically prefer more modern hotels, but I really enjoyed my time here. Our room was lovely, with its own splash pool and private courtyard area (Room 33), I also really appreciated how secluded we felt despite being on a resort. They have their own beach area which was also a plus.

The breakfast was really good, with lots of choices (including vodka!) but my only issue was being harassed by flies every time I ate. I think it may have had to do with the fact that I chose to sit right near window, but it was an open air restaurant.

Our room was lovely with just enough room for the two of us. The staff went out of their way to make us feel special by leaving a bottle of champagne, fruit plate, and nightly treats for us. The staff are definitely what made this place so amazing. They are just so incredibly warm and welcoming, I can't say enough about how wonderful I thought they were.

The location was great in a popular part of Koh Samui, with lots to do at night just by having a walk around
