We travelled here on our honeymoon in october. The hotel came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. We stayed in a pool villa overlooking the resort and what a beautiful room this was, on 2 levels it was spacious, contemporary in style and immaculate inside and out. The staff were very friendly and while we were there the owner... More

The Tongsai Bay hotel is a sublime tropical paradise. A picture post card escape that does not disappoint. Beautifully and sensitively crafted between jungle palms, frangipan, azure blue skies and emerald seas. The staff are some of the friendliest i have encountered in 30 years of global travel. The food is excellent and the wide range will satisfy every taste... More

I'll never get over my trip to Koh Samui, especially in this hotel. It is truly a paradise on earth. The place is gorgeous, the pool you can see the sea, the scenery is breathtaking. I remained shocked and amazed by this place. On top of that, the mentality there is completely different than where I live (Los Angeles, you... More

We had little idea the extent of conservation efforts of this resort; it was magical and so much more than a standard resort; the property was outstanding, the facilities were wonderful, food was exceptional and the team was highly professional; welcoming and wonderful hosts.

we stayed at the Tongsai Bay in September 2016. Everything about the hotel was perfect. The service, ambience, restaurants, all deserve equal praise. Check in (even though we arrived early morning) was easy and we were taken to our room in a buggy! The rooms are clean and spacious with mosquito nets over the beds and repellent supplied in the...

This was our 6th stay at The Tongsai Bay Resort. What can I say we wouldn't keep going back if we didn't love the place. We stayed in Villa 508 - A Tongsai Pool Villa and enjoyed every single 13 days off our stay. The staff are fantastic, the majority of whom have been with the resort for many years... More

Beautiful setting, great accommodation and very nice staff. Would recommend to anyone visiting Koh Samui. A little gem of a resort in the island. Pick your time if year to visit wisely. More rain than we would have liked.

Stayed 2 nights in a Seafront Cottage, The sea view is beautiful, but to get to the beach itself you have to travel down many many steps, the other option to to call a club-car to take you to the beach/pool/restaurant (no charge).

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
