Recent guest reviews
My husband and I planned our honeymoon to Koh Samui and decided on staying at Samui Buri. It was one of the many options we came across on Trip Advisor and selected it mainly because of the quality and services that was being offered at such economical price. Upon our arrival, we knew we made the right choice. The resort, the room, the staff, the food, the beach and other hotel services were upto the mark and generously satisfying. We had an amazing time at Samui Buri and will definitely recommend it to all those who want to enjoy peace, calm and relax and want to have a comfortable luxurious experience and at the same time want to keep their budget in check...then Samui Buri is definitely the place to go for!!! 👍
Poor choice for hotel in Ko Samui. Hotel is completely outdated and far from city life. Rooms have are very old and dirty. Do not stay here. The good days for this place are over. Stay in Chewang on strip.
Hotel is outdated and 25 minute drive away from everything. Wouldn't stay here again. Do yourself a favor and stay in Chaweng beach. Bathrooms are nasty in the rooms. "Private pool" is a small tub outside your room with dirty water in every single one. Sand is yellow not white. No food anywhere within 25 mins of hotel. We checked in 2 hour ago and I want to cry.... stay AWAY chawang beach is a GOOOOD move
Although it locates a little bit far away from the downtown, the peaceful environment and friendly, kind and helpful attendants make the trip and stay worthy. The swimming pool is a bit small, and the breakfast is not that satisfactory.
veeery nice design, wooden floors, excellent jump to a swimming pool directly from the room, spacious bathroom, nice details everywhere, but I was surprised by bad WiFi during 5 days stay. Breakfast are standard good.
Spoiler: I will undoubdetly come back to these magnificent tropical dream! Hotel includes everything what you need to escape from the noisy and cynical megapolis and immerse yourself in the lazy bliss. Traditional Thai architecture with combination of wood, stones and glass surrounded by jungle makes you feel like a special guest. And the staff tries to do everything to feel that way. If you're a trully fan of sea and swimming as I am, you have a perfect chance to swim away from the shore to a depth and admire the views. No worries about currents and animals, you'll be safe. In the vicinity of the hotel there are a few delightful open-space restoraunts served exotic coctailes, dilicious deserts and amazing curry. Among the advantages of the service there is a free transfer from hotel to Fisherman Village, Bo Phut beach and Chaweng famous shopping centre every day. Not much to be negative about, but.... Despite glorious interiour of the hotel and territory together with professional staff I was disappointed by the quality of the towels (old), gowns (old in the holes) and bed linen. This is a strange saving for a hotel of this level and a big minus of the work of managers.
Samui Buri Beach Resort is a little gem hidden in lush nature and along a quiet beach. We stayed in a a grand pool villa built and decorated in Thai style. Our private pool size was not very big, but big enough for a relaxing dip. There is also a big infinity pool for bigger swims. The rooms are a bit old and need some refreshing but the staff does there outermost best to make your stay as confortable and pleasant as they can. The hotel has a good restaurant with own grown vegetables and herbs, there also a few restaurants not far from the hotel. Great choice of breakfast. Super spa and massage. A lovely place to relax and to enjoy the friendliness of the Thai people. Not so much for party-goers.
Its apparent from the outset that this hotel must have been something special in its heyday. The way the resort is laid out, the grand public areas and the size of the rooms suggest this was a five star hotel once upon a time. I'm not entirely sure how it hangs on to its 4* rating because its a shadow of its former self these days. Either the owners have a policy to take it 'down-market' or they simply don't have the money to invest in maintenance. Its a good location and if it were renovated I think it could easily get back to a five star rating. Currently its in a downward spiral to a three star. Silicone is holding things together, buckets are everywhere when it rains- probably because of all the loose and missing roof tiles. The main issue is the bathrooms they are very...very tired. If this were Mauritius it would have been closed down for a year several years ago for a full renovation as part of a rolling renovation programme to maintain its standard. Staff were unattentive at breakfast and very few of them speak any English, which isn't helpful when trying to converse. We didn't use the restaurant, except for breakfast which was pretty low quality and very boring. How anyone can give this hotel a top TripAdvisor rating I really don't know, unless they are used to lower quality hotels. What sums it all up for me is that there is no TripAdvisor feedback from the management- do they even care?
Wonderful staff, polite and helpful. We had a beautiful pool access room which was then upgraded to a villa. We were there over Thai new year and the staff encouraged guests to join in with their celebrations. Lovely food available but much cheaper in local restaurants that are a 10 minute walk. Everywhere is clean and very well maintained. The spa is beautiful and we had a great body scrub and massage. The pool is beautiful and it's great fun to sit at the bar on stalls that are submerged . Beach access is great with an abundance of sun loungers for guests. We had an amazing time and would go back like a shot!
From the minute we arrived there was no hot water in our room or anywhere else in the hotel, so no hot shower could be had. We were told the boiler was broken and there were waiting on parts. We can put up with a lot, normally, but when you add that to the resort being run down in general then it seemed worse. The bathrooms are tired, the pool area is tired and the surface around the pool is needing repaired, the concrete is crumbling which is terrible to walk on bare foot. The jacuzzi area is broken and appears to have been so for some time. There is no effort by the resort to clean the beach area at the hotel, which is a mess with litter all the time. It rained a couple of days when we were there and the hotel leaked everywhere, except our room thankfully. We always look for the positives but other than the room being big there were none. We only ate once n the resort, the food was limp and over priced. Really disappointing stay and we have requested our tour agent request compensation.
