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...

As a single woman looking for a relaxing holiday after a busy year, I decided to book the Tongsai Bay for 8 nights, a friend joined me for part of my stay too. I was a little worried prior to booking that I would feel out of place, but I never really felt that despite this being a popular resort...

This is paradise! The hotel is built beautifully and blends in perfectly with the beach and landscape. The hotel pride themselves on being ecofriendly and no trees were cut down while the were building the hotel. I wish I could stay here permanently. We stayed in the sea view cottage, fantastic view of the ocean and beach. Everything here is...

We stayed here for one night and checked out early.... It wasnt the place for us.... It was quite big and although everyone was exceptionally nice it just didn't have the warmth and boutique atmosphere we wanted (through no fault of the hotel.. They don't position themselves as a boutique resort). The manager was incredibly undestanding and let us check...

I can't say enough about the beauty of the location, the friendliness and commitment of the staff, the comfort of the rooms and the luxury of the food and amenities. We could have stayed longer, and that it not normally our holiday pattern.

We chose Tongsai Bay after much internet research and were heavily influenced by the overwhelmingly positive Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed , this hotel has it all , its location is stunning, the private beach allowing for tranquility in this busy island. The setting allows the rooms to be spread out across the hillsides around the semi circular bay....

Came to rest and relax and that is exactly what this resort offers. We stayed in a beautiful cottage with superb. views of the beach with an outside bath which was entirely private. We wanted for nothing in the room. Plenty of free fresh water, fruit and biscuits. The room maid was meticulous and creative. The service here is amazing...

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
