An older establishment, in a good way, as it is unassuming, well maintained with mature foliage completing the landscape of the tranquil beach front location it is set, making it very cosy and unpretentious luxe. Our room is a beachfront suite, on upper floor, with a lovely view of the ocean, and the lapping waves the background sound. Service overall...

We spent seven nights at Tongsai Bay, returning after an absence of six years. We won't wait so long next time! The service was excellent, the food delicious, and our original 'cottage' delightful. For our final three nights we were upgraded to a Pool Villa, as the toilet in our original villa developed an intermittent fault. This was amazing: enormous...

I find this hotel difficult to review. We were booked to stay here for a week in March 2011 but because of the terrible floods we were only able to stay four nights. This turned out to be just the right amount of time. The hotel is situated in its own grounds quite a long way away from anything else...

We spent 4 nights in August 2012 on the way back from The Myanmar. We had a pool villa with a sea-view. That was really fantastic. The private pool is gorgeous. The rooms (we were with our 2 children 11 et 13) were wide and well furnished. The halfmoon pool is really something to experiment in the morning. Breakfast is...

We stayed at Tongsai Bay for 8 nights - the service is excellent, the food delicious with a great variety, and the accomodation is superb. It was lovely having a private beach and the beach staff were always on hand to give fresh towels, drinks etc. The Chef Chom restaurant serves fantastic Thai food and the Thai cooking classes are...

Stayed a week at Tongsai Bay in spring. The hotel has everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The two restaurants offer a good selection of quality dishes. The staff is very helpful, effficient and friendly. It's expensive but it's worth it!

Great location to enjoy the sun and sand, it is tucked away from other resorts and offers excellent view of a private beach. The staff is the best part of the experience, their service is excellent and are always willing to accommodate your specific needs.

From the pick up at the airport, everything was 'just right'. The sea view pool villa was perfect. The verandah was delightful with kitchenette area, sun lounges, daybed and bathtub. This is where most of the days were spent. With our own pool there was no need. The restaurants were lovely and Thai Cultural Night at Chef Chom's restaurant is...

We recently stayed 7 nights at the Tongsai Bay Hotel and were very impressed with the hotel. Our friends were married at the Tongsai hence the nature of the trip! This hotel is really very lovely. We stayed in a Cottage Suite (we were upgraded as part of the deal for being wedding guests). The rooms are so nice. Quite...

We loved our stay at Tongsai. The staff was very diligent and friendly- always wanting to help us out if possible. Facilities were beautiful and well kept. The only reason we gave 4 stars and not 5 is because of the price. Understood it is a luxury resort, but its very pricey for Thailand and the island. It's also a...

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
