Beautiful hotel, phenomenally attentive staff, and a luxurious yet discerning setting. It would have been even better if the breakfast room were air conditioned, but there were fans galore to take the edge off overheating too much. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice hotel, average 5 star, without anything luxury, BUT this hotel is really one of the beast choise - one of the best beaches - normal depth, heavy sand, (which means that wather is crystal), no local people at all (small privet bay), a lot of fish and there is NO motor sports on the beach!! Territory - very...

From the moment we arrive we were treated so well by friendly staff who could not do enough to help us during our stay. We had booked into a Grand Deluxe Villa thinking the pictures in the brochure looked amazing but they actually didn't do the room justice. A balcony with a huge bath two single beds and a large...

Our room was one of the best rooms we have stayed in - we had a pool cottage which had a gorgeous plunge pool which was much appreciated in the heat! The swimming pool is luxurious and...

This has been without a doubt the best hotel me and my partner stayed at; the pictures really don't do the place justice as the views are breathtaking and I was absolutely overwhelmed when we arrived. The staff are hands down the most welcoming, courteous and kind people I've ever met and everyone went out of their way to make...

Tongsai Bay is without doubt the best hotel on the island. Second time back and looking forward to the next. My partner and I have just stayed there for the last four nights and everything about our stay was brilliant. Incredible views from all over the hotel, great smoothie shakes at breakfast, and it has its own private beach. We...

The location and facilities at this Hotel is outstanding! For total relaxation away from the crowds I will recommend this. Some of the restaurant staff lacked being tentative. We attended the "barbecue evening" and found the spread to be very good, however I found the duck very tough and the lattes they served had to be sent back as it...

Lovely return visit to Tongsai Bay to celebrate the Songkran holidays. Perfect resort, lovely villas and excellent friendly staff under Mark's leadership. Loved the recognition as a return guest and room annex plus so convenient for the airport but away from flight path. Great evening entertainment and staff involvement in the water festival. Nice breakfast with plenty of choices and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tongsai Bay is located on Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand just a short travel distance by air from Bangkok and across the southern peninsula. The view of Tongsai Bay is hypnotic, as its set amidst a secluded ocean cove; an eco-friendly colony of cottages, low rise buildings and villas barely displacing the lush greenery on the hills of the island's northeast corner. 3 restaurants serve Thai, and international food and the hotel hosts regular live music for evening entertainment. ... more   less
