One word. Amazing! We'll be going back without a doubt. Caters for everything and everyone. People are so nice, beautiful food and amazing scenery! 30 mins taxi to chaweng beach which is a Must when in samui. Great bars and night life.

We spent 10days in this amazing place ,friendly ,beautiful, picturesque and off the main stream roads. Paradise! The private pool along your villa is a nice touch especially when on honeymoon. The private beach is 3 seconds from the restaurant, bar and pool

Our experience in Samui Buri Beach Resort was absolutely amaizing. We had full board meal plan and we've tried almost everything that's in the menu. I can say only one thing about the food: DELICIOUS!!! Our compliments to the chef! Great masaman, the best smoked duck breast salad ever, great solmon, great beef, amaizing soups...all the food in the menu is to die for 🙂. Ken, the little cambdian soul and Oat from the restaurant were amaizing! Ken is a real trasure for this resort. It was a pleasure to have little talks with him every day. He always had a smile on his face. I could see that he is doing his job with great passion. I must say I fell in love with the man that every afternoon was delivering ice, litting a candle, put some nice parfume in the bathroom and gave an orhid ❤❤❤❤. Small things makes all the difference!!!! In his day off 3 other colegues of him came to do the same job as he was doing, but the feeling wasn't the same. The resort It is in deed a bit far from all the noise of the city, but if you need some quiet time this is the place to come. The rooms are very large, every day we got tea, coffe and bottles of water for free. The infinite pool was clean and had a great view. I loved the dogs that came to the restaurant every morning and than on the beach.They offer every day at 4 pm a free shuttle to Fisherman's village and Chaweng beach. Ps: Love the remote control of all the lights and the air con by the bed Ps2: please help me with the recepie of masaman, coconut milk soup, crispy duck :)

This was our second stay at this hotel but will not be our last. We had a great time on our last visit but, if anything, this one was better. The staff made it really special and we are looking forward to a return visit. Getting there – this is really unusual if you arrive by ferry as the hotel is walking distance from the pier. It takes about 10 minutes over bumpy ground but we walked with our suitcases quite easily. There are lots of taxi drivers if you would prefer to be driven but they don't come cheap! Location – really good. The hotel is located on the beach and it is about one minute walk to the nearest shops and three minutes into the little strip of bars and restaurants. Rooms – huge! We just went for an entry-level one but got a massive bedroom, roomy bathroom and really big balcony with heavy wooden chairs and tables. There is a clothes driver as well. The rooms are extremely solidly built and are very comfortable. They have a TV, safe, bath robes, Hot drinks facilities, hairdryer and just about everything else you could need. Pool – has to be one of the most picturesque around. It has an infinity element that looks across the beautiful beach, sea and out on to the islands. The beach is well used by the hotel as well and there are lots of available sun beds with parasols for shade. The pool bar music was dreadful at times but they change that when I asked! Food – we were room only so can't comment. Wi-Fi – a mixed bag. When you are on it, it was very good and quick (30mbs). The problem is this is a big resort and you need to login to the different routers. It did also need to be logged in again when you last connection. Staff - I was really impressed and thought they were even better last time. The lady who checked in on reception was very thorough and helped us throughout our stay. When ever we asked for anything we got it quickly and with a smile.

Stayed one night in this hotel. Restaurant facility is overrated from breakfast to dinner. Front deskbis inflexible and cannot arrange a different room and stick with a queen bed for a couple. Definitely too small. Hotel is lost amidst a no land and offers no service but beach and pool. Beach was privatized for a wedding and pool was overcrowded then. Beach is tiny and under standards. Massage parlor is good. But pricey. Go to bophut.

Deluxe room (no pool access), Family holiday, 5 nights +++ Pleasant and quiet with classic Thai architecture. The hotel was clean and well maintained and the staff were amazing. If you are looking for a modern, high spec 5* establishment with updated facilities this is not the resort for you ! +++ Recommend the cooking class - 1 hour, 4 dishes of your choice, photos and recipes included. And of course lunch ! + (Very) Limited fitness/gym facility was nice to have +++ Shuttle service at 4pm daily to Chaweng and Fishermans Village +++ Breakfast buffet was good. Eggs cooked to order +++ Pleasant and helpful staff + Fire show was interesting ++ 4 bottle of water provided every day, also Ice, Tea and Coffee +++ Large infinity pool which was never busy +++ Private Beach ++ Short walk along the beach to Lomprayah Samui Maenam (Pralan Pier), where you can get catamaran transfer to Koh Tau or Koh Pha Ngan. The Catamarans run by Lomprayah get very busy - there is no competition, its the only option --- WiFi access was not very good - need to sign multiple times, once signed in was rather slow anyway (Recommend dtac tourist SIM - 4G internet) - Air con was a little loud and a little weak --- Tripped on the step between the bed area and the rest of the room on multiple occasions. This could be very dangerous with small children, they could easily not see the step and fall badly. - I would not go so far as to say the resort is 'tired' or 'requiring an update/revamp' but there were some stained floor tiles in the bathroom. This did not bother me much Overall there are many more pros than cons. Most of the cons can be overlooked. *Toilet flush stopped working one day - this was resolved within 30 minutes *Did not try lunch and dinner at the resort's restaurant - prices were significantly more than local options. Same applies to the spa/massage *Did not see the appeal/need of a pool access room or a villa, the deluxe room was very spacious with a large balcony *Taxis around the Island are very expensive for Thailand and the resort is a bit tucked away. It certainly suits a more relaxed vacation. Recommend John's Garden restaurant - 5 minute walk

Out of all the places we stayed in Thailand, this was where we planned to have rest and relaxation and I agonised over reviews for this hotel. We needn't have worried. The hotel comprises of traditional Thai architecture, dark wood furniture and floors and this adds to its charm. For those looking for modern five star accommodation with all the bells and whistles, this probably wouldn't be the place for you but the hotel is comfortable, clean, well maintained and the attitude of the staff is beyond compare. The infinity pool offers amazing views over to Koh Phangan and leads onto the beach with plenty of sun beds and a few steps to the sea. The hotel is down a lane off the main road, a short walk from plenty of restaurants and small shops to obtain supplies. Highly recommend Eclypso Bar in the village, for drinks after dinner.....lovely people and Edward the husky puppy. The Friday night market in Bophut is easy to get to via taxi organised by the hotel. We loved our time in Samui and Mae Nam....we would return in a heartbeat.

Lovely hotel with little noise and quiet beach for a relaxing break. Not for partying though, or if you want nightlife, unless you factor in taxis at 400 to 500 B each way. We spent a week near in 2 adjoining direct pool access rooms. These are large rooms and lots of space for clothes with wardrobe and shelves behind bed etc. Wifi quite good but you have to login in if you go away for long period, but iPad stored the login, so no great problem. Two rooms share a small 10 foot square pool leading out onto a one lane long pool that runs along the whole 6 rooms in a block. The patio and small pool stay in the shade which is lovely and you can swim up and down the longer pool which is shady in the afternoon. Adjoining rooms are connected via the patio and not the pool, so specify if you want ones on either side of small pool. We never used the main pool as it doesn't open until 10am and we preferred swimming in the sea before breakfast, and it was too hot to use it in the afternoon for us, so the room pool was ideal. The hotel is Thai design, so no walls on corridors or reception, restaurant etc. Also, the communal areas are designed to take water away so small steps everywhere and pools/drains. I would be wary of having small children here as beach steeply shelving and lots of water around walkways, though there were some young families who seems ok. Staff were lovely, very helpful and polite. Lots provided, beach towels, usual toiletries, toothbrushes, sewing kit, detergent and razers. The only air con is in the main bedroom which was fine by us. The bathrooms are a bit dated, e.g. Old grout, but very large and clean, with a big bath and large walk in shower. Breakfast was good with lots of western and SE Asian food choices to eat while overlooking beach. There are a number of shops and restaurants within a short walk of the hotel and we ate at a different one every night and they were all good and cheap, about 300 to to 400B for meal and beer. Also, small supermarket and great gift shop on corner of the main road and the road down to the hotel opposite the Family Market supermarket, about 10 min walk from hotel. Beach has a few bars, we ate at Cocorico about 100 m east of hotel and had great massages there as well. Put off snorkelling trips by reviews so just did day trip on nearby ferry to Koh Phangnan, 500B return but make sure you exchange return voucher for tickets on the Khangnan. Lovely bakery, Nira's just to right of pier for coffee and buns. Also, good shopping centre for local shops and some crafts and indoor food market. Took free hotel 4pm shuttle to Chaweng (very busy And loud music on beach where we went, and took Songthaew back at 300B to top of hotel road) and Fisherman's (lovely and drink in Indian restaurant on shore, 400B for taxi back). It rained heavily some evenings so we didn't go to the night markets. Overall, I would come back to same room if I wanted a good rest in nice surroundings.

This hotel is massive and would have been very impressive in its day. The staff were very kind and helpful but the hotel needs a significant amount of investment to bring it up to modern standards. The whole place was very clean but the fabric of the buildings was shabby. The staff have tried to keep on top of the maintenance but the hotel is so big and intricate it is a very difficult task. The deluxe room are generously spacious and the balcony is a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was fine with a good choice, but not great compared to a "proper" 4 star hotel. We had lunch a few times at the hotel and it wasn't that good, so we ate most evenings at the small village of Maenam, which had about 10 places to eat and a few mini markets to buy cold drinks, snacks, etc. There isn't much to do around the hotel and taxis are expensive (for Thailand) to get to somewhere with a bit of buzz at night. Check the location carefully because if you want nightlife, it is 25 minutes away with tourist-gouging taxi fares there and back.

Just stayed here for 10 nights on honeymoon and loved every minute. It is quite far from busy nightlife but so many lovely restaurants and bars round about. We loved it. Staff were so friendly too. The infinity pool is amazing. We had a grand pool villa with private pool which was beautiful 😊
