***Just for full disclosure, I am an IHG corporate employee*** From the very moment the driver met me at the airport it cannot be mistaken that this is a 5 star luxury venue. My transfer to the hotel was smooth and comfortable, with the driver seemingly fully aware of my exhaustion after a long flight from the UK! I was able to relax and take in the stunning scenery and re-hydrate with the complementary water provided for the journey. Arriving at the hotel around 45 minutes later, the entrance to the hotel is just unreal. Beautiful open views from the lobby to the ocean, just stunning. Check in was nice and fast and I was delighted to be informed my room was ready, even though i arrived very early in the morning well before check-in time. I stayed here for 2 weeks whilst doing an intense Muay Thai training camp at the nearby gym. I booked the IC in the hope that the luxurious venue and surroundings would ease the pain of the brutal training...and the IC seriously delivered! For me it was the small touches. It is without question that this is a high end resort but the little things really made it special. My room was spacious and light with a huge balcony and day beds to relax on. Every day fresh loofahs in the shower kits were provided, along with Spa quality bath salts and bubbles. It was super helpful to have the detergent packs provided as i needed to wash my stinky gym kit out daily! I LOVED the tea bags and tea-pot, the leaves were contained in beautiful cotton tea-bags and a great selection of herbal varieties which were constantly kept topped up. The 2 cup cafetiere was also a blessing with lovely pouches of coffee grinds, also refreshed regularly by the lovely maids. The little tea coasters were so sweet, really fresh and natural looking and i enjoyed tea on my balcony every single evening. My room was kept amazingly clean by the housekeeping team, fresh water and toiletries refreshed without fail every day. The shower was incredible, more like a wet room and i could take a shower whilst looking out at the ocean, watching the sunset!! And living as i do in a tiny flat, the enormous bathtub was heaven!! The bed was positioned so i could wake up looking out at the ocean which is just such a wonderful way to wake up. i didnt close my curtains the entire 2 weeks. The choice of pools is beyond belief - 7 in all! Mostly I'm a beach girl and went to the beachside pool most days. However, i discovered that the Blue pool up in the cliffs was most often deserted and i spent many afternoons there feeling like a princess with a private pool!! Truly a memorable experience. Towels and water provided at all of the pools. It was really a nice touch being passed a glass of iced water with lemon as soon as i got to the beach each day by the lovely pool team. The pier going into the sea is great, a nice way to get into the water without having to negotiate the little rocks. Crystal clear blue water with lots of fish swimming about, just too pretty. I have to say this is the most incredible hotel I have had the pleasure of visiting. Every single person working there always had a smile and took the time to say hello. The location is stunning, its a very quiet and natural area. I truly enjoyed every minute of my stay here and would break my travel rule for this hotel and visit the same place twice!

It's a five star hotel with the most stunning sunset I have ever seen. We were there for three nights staying at beach front pool villa. The villa was very nice despite a small pool. The beach is cleaned. Airbar was stunning because of the view over looking the ocean. Food was ok, good selection of wines. Staffs were very nice.

Obviously the hotel was top notch but after staying 5 nights we quickly ran out of things to do. So we needed guidance from a local... lucky for us.. We had an excellent Butler in the name of Steve. Booked everything for us from massages to Muay Thai fights in the city. Thank you very much.

The second we arrived at reception we were in awe. Views to die for. Beautiful. Without a doubt one of the best located hotels in the world. Stunning. Club worth every penny. Amazing staff - can't do enough for you. We loved it here and we will return. Quiet. Peaceful. Break. If you want to party go elsewhere. If you want a romantic getaway come here. 💕

Very nice hotel with almost perfect service! Very friendly and very well trained personal. They all seemed happy and very professional. Our room was very clean and quite new. We had a nice view and private pool. Some other reviews indicate that the hotel is dated which I can not agree. The resort is large and have very nice gardens. To keep the hotel new for its size and location climate is not easy I suppose. The hotel offers free airport transfer for club rooms. We stayed an other hotel before at chaweng beach. They pick us up from another hotel without any problems. We used an offer for the beach front villa (from hotel own web page) with private pool. 3 nights stay- pay two nights. Even with the offer the room was very expensive but it was worth it (around 500 euros per night) (which is very expensive for Thailand) Check in and check out process was quick. The butler service is great. We would like to thank all the butlers for the service. Especially Seen, steve and Ball. We made a snorkel tour with the hotel speed boat ( around 100 Euros per person) Nice experience. The only critique was there is not enough English TV channels. Next time in Koh samui I would definitely stay there again.

A beautiful, luxury hotel on one of the most beautiful spots in Samui. The reception area is airy, open and bright, overlooking the stunning sea. The room was spacious, the bathroom was huge with a great rain shower and deep bath. The choices available at breakfast were varied from all corners of the globe, chinese, english, japanese and thai. The only problem I had was during one dinner at the Amber restaurant, the restaurant didn't have any cold white wines (all wines were slighty cooler than room temperature which was 30 degrees celcius).

We came here for a wedding, as guests. It was amazing. The view is superb, staff are outstanding and the food and drinks for dinner were all top notch. Our dinner was buffet style and cocktails. We didn't stay here as it's really expensive, but as wedding guests, perfect!

Came here for a holiday with my family which I haven't done in a while but the hotel and staff were so lovely and so unbelievably helpful, plus with tonnes of room to move around there was no friction or issues whatsoever! The place is huge and with a large variety of different themed pools so plenty of room for lots of guests, plus fantastic service wherever you go! The second we sat down at the beach pool or infinity pool, hotel staff would be there with a towel, chilled water and a huge smile on their face. The location is absolutely stunning and the beautiful features of the hotel, amazing food, gorgeous accommodation and above all, ridiculously helpful nature of the staff all work together to make this a magical and relaxing holiday. Could not recommend highly enough, whether you want a relaxing resort style holiday or are looking for some local activities to try either at the resort or just out of it, there is plenty for everyone!

There are so many reviews in English already, so I wrote it mostly in Japanese, sorry. Their hospitality and equipment were great as I expected, and you can enjoy fabulous sunset. But to enjoy the sunset, the location was not convenient, I mean, far from busy district, which has both good/bad point. Note -There is no massage shop for local people around the hotel. You can find it in "sunset beach hotel", the nearby hotel from InterContinental, but it is also a little bit costly compared to the shops in busy districts, too. I hoped there were even a reasonable massage shop around the hotel. -There is no convenience store, supermarket, or restaurant around the hotel, so you have to go to Lamai or Chauweng beach to get local foods, drinks and other miscellaneous things. (There was I-talay, local pizza restaurant in 5 min. by walk. We enjoyed it) -You can enjoy fantastic breakfast buffet everyday with great scenery. However I could find little difference in everyday menu, so I got tired of it on the last day. -Bathrobes weren't replaced at all although we intended it. I don't know why. -I saw a staff was using smartphone while walking in midnight. I thought they were professional, so sorry about it. (Staff's hospitality was good, not to mention) -On our arrival day, the staff offered breakfast-box to us on our departure day. We were looking forward to it, but we couldn't get it. There seems to be other great hotels in Ko samui, so next time I might choose other hotel. 4泊5日で妻と宿泊しました。空港からは30分程度と少し遠く感じ、道もあまり舗装されていないので車酔いしました。 知っておいた方が良かったと思う点 ・近くにはコンビニ、スーパーマーケットなど全くありません。いつもお土産は地元のスーパーマーケットで買うと決めているので、不便でした ・ホテルからナトン、チャウウェンビーチまでシャトルバスが出ています。一人300バーツ程度かかります。これに気づいたのが最終日だったので、残念でした。 ・いわゆる地元の方が使うような周囲にマッサージもありません。ちかくのホテル(サンセットビーチホテル)だとInterContinentalの半額程度で利用できますが、ナトンなどの市街地にあるマッサージ店の200-300バーツのような気軽に入れるお店も1件くらいあるといいなと思いました。 ・ジムは設備は期待以上で、スミスマシンがありました。見晴らしがいい位置にあり、利用客が少ないのでよかったですが、時々水やタオルのリフィルがされていないなど、改善点が見受けられました。 ・ここのビーチは入って楽しむというより観るもののようです。 良かった点 ・外出時、雨が降り、洗濯物をベランダに干したままにしていたのですが、取り込んでもらえるなど、スタッフの方は親切です。 改善点 ・朝ごはんは美味しいビッヒェなのですが、滞在中ずっと同じメニューでした。 ・到着した際、「出発日の朝が早いので軽食用意するよ」と心遣いいただいたのですが、結局用意頂けませんでした。妻は非常に残念がっていました。 ・電話で済むような話でも向こうのペースで部屋にきて話をしようとしてきました。face to faceのほうが伝わりやすいですが、くつろいでいたところびっくりしました。 ・夜中、携帯をいじりながら歩いているスタッフの方がいました。 ・バスローブはなかなか変えてもらえず、結局ずっと同じものを利用することとなりました(変えて欲しいとの意思表示をしたのですが、そういうポリシーなのか伝わらなかったのか残念です) ・ビーチとロビーの移動はカートがメインなので、最初はカートに乗るのが楽しいですが、後半になると少し不便でした。階段でもいけますが、ビーチサンダルを履いた女性には少し遠く感じる距離です。ビーチ前のプールに行くのに億劫になります。 ・子連れが多いので、カップルでお越しの方には気になるかたもいらっしゃるかもしれません。また、グループの中国人の方も結構おり、仕方ないことですが食事中は騒がしいです。(いる時に限って、スタッフの方が隣のテーブルに案内してきたのが少し残念でした) いい滞在先だったと思いますがそれなりにするところなので、コスパを考えると次回の利用は要検討というところです。

This was really a very special holiday for my wife and I after having to have cancelled our reservation in April. The communication before we arrived ensured that everything was clarified prior to arrival. We had a very friendly welcome at the airport, on the journey to the hotel we were given the opportunity to order Room Service to be ready for when we arrived. Then at the hotel a great welcome. We strongly recommend the villas (with private pool) on the beach, spacious, impeccable kept and cleaned every day, our room girl was a real darling. The restaurants and bars offer a great selection with the highest levels of Thai hospitality, they are always there when you need them, and yet give you adequate space. The food is fabulous with a great selection, breakfast is a highlight, along with the sundown cocktails on the terrace. This is a very well run hotel with a great team.
