We stumbled upon this when needing one nights accommodation in the Fisherman's village before we moved into our Yoga retreat. Its a friendly hotel that is run by a true legend. Dave the owner is a fountain of information about the island and went out of his way to help. The hotel itself is clean, comfortable and 2 mins walk...

If you are looking for accomodation in fisherman's village that isn't ridiculously overpriced, look no further. The rooms is small and tidy with aircon. The view isn't great-but we were almost never in our rooms. Dave was extremely helpful and it helps having someone who speaks english and makes sure your not taken for a ride. I would have liked...

Pure luckydip how we ended up here, but we stroke gold.. Fishermans village has the benefits of being next door to buzzing Chaweng, so if you want to go big you can easily hop over there for the night, and if you decide you want a chilled good time then FV is where its at. We reviewed several choices along...

Stayed here during a 5 month trip through south-east Asia where we were looking for rooms in the region of $40 U.S. a night. This was our favourite place during the entire journey. Comfortable rooms in a good location at a great price. Dave was brilliant during our stay, always ready to help, whilst at the same time happy to...

This small hotel is one of the best values in all of Samui. Located in the Fisherman's Village in Bophut amidst a number of great restaurants, spas and a beautiful stretch of beach, you can't ask for more. The rooms are not huge, but well-appointed, clean and quiet. And the hosts, Dave and Therese, are fantastic!

This was a one-night only stay, awaiting transfer to the nearby islands, and I arrived late and left early, so probably didn't get the full effect that other reviewers here have been so positive about. It's a budget option, and you get what you pay for. This is an upstairs room accessed from a common outdoor walkway. My room door...

Cocooning Hotel was spot on for what we needed while in Koh Samui, the location was excellent in the beautiful little Fishermans Village, everything is within a short walk. Some superb restaurants, notably 'The Hut' two doors down for amazing Thai food, all can be found on the on main road. The beach is but a 1-2min walk away over...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just minutes walk from the beach and perfectly located at the quiet end of the villages many shops and restaurants, Cocooning is a tranquil paradise and a great place to enjoy Samui from. Great value for money, the hotel is very competitively priced for the area and perfect for couples, families and singles of all ages. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome from Dave and Therese, the hotel's owners, who are by far the hotel's biggest asset. The dynamic duo from England and Sweden have lived in Thailand for over 10 years, offering a wealth of experience and local knowledge. They started their journey on Koh Tao where they met and worked in the diving industry, until they set up their first business together running a very successful beachside bar and restaurant. They were later married and looking for a new adventure with the imminent arrival of their first child, set their sights on Cocooning in 2012. They instantly added something special to the hotel and their little personal touches can be seen throughout. Service is most definitely with a smile and guests are made to feel instantly at home. ... more   less
