My wife and I enjoyed our time at Tongsai Bay. The views are awesome, the rooms were clean and the staff was great. We would especially like to compliment the front desk and the guys working the beach/pool area. Its not within walking distance to much, but for a small fee they will drive you and pick you up to...

We decided to pick the Tongsai Bay among all of hotels available in koh samui, turned out it was good decision. We love our room with balcony and bath in the balcony. The view was maginificent. You have your privacy and quiet. We asked them to give us a quiet and good view room as it is our honeymoon, surprisingly,...

We had promised our grand daughter and her partner a luxurious holiday with their baby when she was old enough to travel. Having spent several happy holidays ourselves at Tongsai, this had to be the location. Previously we had stayed in both cottage suites and pool villas; this time we went for the ultimate sea front pool villa, whilst they...

Return to heaven, after a gap of 15 years our return to Tongsai Bay was long over due. Still 5 stars, still perfect & the staff are the best. With a staff ratio of 3 per room it's not hard to understand why the standards are so high. If your budget can run to it stay in a pool villa,...

I'll admit it...when my husband and I first arrived at The Tongsai Bay, we were anxious to get on the beach after traveling for two weeks throughout Cambodia and Vietnam. We would have been okay with speeding up the check-in process and getting to our room. Luckily for us, the hotel staff are experts at slowing things down and re-introducing...

Perfect location with private beach, staff are all genuine and helpful always smiling. Rooms are nice, ours meant a walk up 50 steps which may not to be of everyone's taste, but as the resort is over 25 acres a bit of walking is expected. The restaurant food is v good, however was quite expensive and does add a premium...

Eleven years ago, my husband and I spent 3 days at Tongsai Bay...our first trip without kids. This year, after remembering our earlier trip fondly, we returned with our teenagers. We don't often return to a resort hotel, but a Tongsai Bay isn't just any hotel. This 5-star eco resort is one of the most beautiful, restful, friendly and accommodating...

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
