visited: March 2016 We stayed in this resort for 2 nights. We took the seafront cottage. The resort is an extremely spacious property with extremely pretty landscape. It is ideally located with a private beach. It has 3 different restaurants with one that has a bar and is located near the beach. They have different activities like cultural show and...

When you read reviews of the special hotel there are recurring themes, the wonderful staff, the peaceful and relaxing setting and the number of repeat visitors. A stay at this hotel has an almost magical feeling long hot nights at the bar under the Tongsai tree will call you back long after you leave. All the staff have an empathetic...

We have been looking to stay at this resort for many years and finally took the time to go there are we not disappointed. We took a Grand Villa which was enormous and, although it was secluded, was a relatively short walk from both pools and restaurants. There was the option of ordering a buggy but we found the walk...

I don't know what else to say apart from thank you for the great experience. Tongsai Bay is the best place to be if you just want to relax and not worry about anything. It's all about the people that make the place. The personal touch to everything they do must be the reason why we saw so many of...

Our second trip to Tongsai Bay in 6 months. The Management and staff remembered my husband and I, welcoming us with open arms. We soon realized why we had no hesitation in returning to this resort. It is unlike no others we have stayed in. There are staff members who have worked there for over 30 years and they are...

Easily the best resort on Koh Samui with excellent facilities and even better hospitable staff! Resort philosophy is to let you connect with nature and conserve nature. This place has gotten greener and denser over the last ten years- unbelievable but true! Don't be surprised to bump into harmless tropical animals and reptiles at the resort. Also has the best...

......how absolutely wonderful our stay was at The Tongsai Bay. We have travelled to Thailand every year for the last eleven years, and this is without doubt the best hotel yet.

We are returning guests and really enjoy the Tongsai Bay! The staff is excellent, the location one in a kind and the pool area beautiful. For us, there is no other place on Ko Samui than the Tongsai Bay.

PROS Near flawless service; *Excellent* breakfast; Gorgeous scenery, quiet setting and stunning views CONS The natural setting could be difficult or dangerous for small children, the elderly or disabled; The property is a little isolated: I viewed this is a "pro," and didn't mind a short taxi or 30 minute walk, but those looking for more action should look elsewhere....

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
