The Tongsai Bay is set in a beautiful location and is perfect if you want a quiet get away. There are 2 pools, 2 restaurants, gym, bar and lovely little shop. The main pool area is lovely, plentiful sunbeds and great beach staff, lovely refreshing iced water and fresh fruit in the afternoons. The private beach is beautiful, there are...

We stayed at this hotel for a week. There are not enough adjectives to describe how good this hotel is. All the facilities you would ever need. Adult only pools and large family pools, tennis courts, own private beach and water sports club and the list goes on. Our room was impeccably clean and very very large (all with aircon)...

Great hotel and service, in a quite secluded place but very preserved and eco-friendly. Real nice view, a mix of sea and forest landscapes. As the place is quite large and steep, an electric buggy can get you anywhere in the resort, that’s very convenient ! A nice fruit basket is waiting for you everyday in the room and the...

Tongsai is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. And on my second visit is still the best!!! All the small details are covered and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. I work in the industry myself and I can see that the attention to detail and consistency of product is first class. Worth every penny...

Exceptional place for its peacefulness and attention to detail. Staff are excellent and are committed to deliver excellent service. Was lucky enough to get...

We booked into the Tongsai Bay for 10 unforgettable days. Usually we like to explore around us when on hols, eat at different places, drink in different bars, do various activities. The Tongsai Bay had it all! We didn't even leave the resort until guilt forced us to. The room was fantastic; the view, the balcony was great, the outdoor...

Location We stayed at the Tongsai bay for our honeymoon. The location is amazing , beautifully set in its own private bay, it looks as good or better than the photos suggest ! The views are sensational and it really feels like you're own private paradise. You are paying for this view/location in this resort and you need to be...

We enjoyed 9 days recovering here at the end of a six week trip round SE Asia. Despite some poor weather we had a great time - the staff are charming and very good, the restaurants have some great choices and the half moon pool (adults only) is a nice usually quiet spot, only spoil occasionally by the excessive photographic...

I was in love with this place the second we hoped out of the car, the staff were so particularly amazingly kind. They could not do enough for you. There were always something to do and someone to help you. I would absolutely recommend this place if you need a holiday that is completely indulgent and relaxing and want to...

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
