This was our fourth visit to Tongsai Bay and the holiday was as chilled and relaxing as ever. The staff are kind, friendly and always ready to help, from the Hotel Manager to the hotel gardener. Rooms are exceptionally clean and have beautiful views that it’s sometimes difficult to actually drag yourselves out to use the other hotel facilities. We...

I cannot remember having such attentive service as at the Tongsai Bay. On arrival, the Manager saw that I was somewhat disabled. The cottage my Travel Agent had booked was clearly not suitable because there too many steps up to it. Without hesitation, my wife and I were given a ground floor room overlooking the pool which was ideal -...

We have just returned from our heavenly holiday at Tongsai Bay, feeling very relaxed and chilled and that's even after holidaying with our children who are 7 and 9. We can not rate this hotel high enough. The staff are amazing, so friendly, joked with the kids and often went beyond our expectations, happily helping in anyway they could. The...

We have just left Tongsai Bay after 6 great days. This hotel certainly is a 5 star resort with great rooms (cottages), very nice food in the restaurants and a great staff. We were picked up by the hotels driver at Samui airport after a long flight from the UK. We had booked a Seaview Cottage but were upgraded to...

We just spent six nights at the Tongsai Bay and I must say it is without doubt the most relaxing hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were absolutely wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The cocktail reception followed by the Seafood buffet (on Tuesdays), seated at a table by the beach with the saxophonist playing and the...

We have now been to Tongsai Bay first. It is in a very lovely, secluded location set on the cliffs with it's own beach. Great if you like to chill out in one place - you can't really walk to anywhere but can get taxis (or use the hotel's own) to Bohophut or Chaewang (taxis are more expensive than in...

Im a little late in writing this review sorry, we stayed at the beautiful Tongsai Bay in January 2012 for our honeymoon and absolutely loved every minute.

Our expectations were high, having chosen Tongsai Bay on the basis of so many good reviews, but they were exceeded in every way. Firstly the location, Koh Samui is a well developed island and driving round you would never think that there was any sea at all, as so much of it is hidden by heavy tourist development, some of...

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
