The accommodation is very comfortable and smart. Staff are welcoming, helpful and charming. James, the general manager,made us feel special and clearly enjoyed his job and motivated his staff. How often do you see the hotel manager walking around the pool and beach areas greeting the guests?

My wife and I came to Samui looking for beautiful white sand beaches and found them at Poppies. Located on the south end of Chaweng beach, you get beautiful white sand with far less crowd. The resort itself is gorgeous and is set up in such a way that while you're on the property all you can see is the...
