Dara Samui Beach Resort
Ranked #23 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This was my first time in koh Samui and having stayed in a reasonably standard hostel in Bangkok this was pure luxury to stay in. When we arrived we were greeted by the staff who then gave us a nice cold drink and a hot towel for our faces. The hotel staff, bar staff, cleaners etc all extremely friendly and helpful. The swimming pool overlooking the beach was clean and water temp just right. Free beach towels given to hotel guests on lend. Also free beach bag to use as well. So many people kept stopping on the beach at the hotel to take photograph of it. The breakfast buffet was amazing, so much to choose from you'll leave feeling full. The room was lovely, very comfortable bed and very spacious bathroom. Free bottled water for guests and tea and coffee. Great location with all shops and bars within walking distance. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I'm not sure what he food was like but if the breakfast is anything to go by I'm sure it's lovely. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone. My only bad point -well not a really bad - Is that there was no nice view from the balcony. We were overlooking beach huts.

Room Tip: If you require a room with a view ask.

We have spent 7 nights at the Dara Samui hotel. We liked very much the direct access from the hotel pool to the beach area . just few steps ahead . The room was great , quite big and clean .
The hotel personal was very friendly and helpful . The pool is small but very nice .
The breakfast is being served by choosing your meal from the menu .
In the front of the hotel there is a very nice restaurant with nice music in the evenings . The only issue that was little uncomfortable was that the lobby is open without any air conditioning .

Room Tip: As close as you will get to the pool area .

I recently stayed at The Dara Samui, Koh Samui Thailand with my partner, family and friends for a special occasion and had an amazing time. When we first arrived we were welcomed by friendly staff with drinks and cold towels and were then showed to our room. The rooms at this hotel were very clean and neatly decorated. There were about 30 of us staying at The Dara Samui and each room, regardless of type, were beautiful. We were lucky enough to stay in both a standard room and a superior room and they were fantastic. From the minute we arrived, the staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. Their smiles were infectious and they were so lovely and accomodating, no matter what the request. The hotel's location is perfect for shopping, food and nightlife. The front of the hotel is on Chaweng Road whilst the back of the hotel is beachside. The pool is great and over looks the beach, with the beach full of deck chairs and sun umbrellas. On the beach, located near the pool was a massage hut. Only once did I venture out onto the street for a massage and it did not compare what so ever to the massages you can get on the beach at the hotel. The staff working at the massage hut were professional, excellent at what they did and also very friendly. There was nothing better than swimming in the pool and then going from the pool edge to a relaxing massage on the beach - they were fantatsic. We had breakfast each day included in our room booking and breakfast was great. A full breakfast of everything you could want, from freshly made omelettes on request, hot breakfast items to cereals, breads and fruit. I would like to mention how special the front office staff and pool side staff were. They were so pleasant from the start of our stay right through to when they farwelled us personally as we left to return home. A great holiday and it was made all the better because of the staff at The Dara Samui. Can't wait to return there and will definitely be staying with them again.
