We recently spent 7 nights at Tongsai Bay and had a really lovely time. The staff were all absolutely charming and helpful. Our room was one of the furthest from the reception/restaurant but we could ring for a golf buggy if we were feeling lazy!! It was also quite a long walk down the path to the beach. We looked...

After a 5 year wait, we were over the moon to be back at Tongsai Bay and with high expectations. We arrived to a very warm (literally) welcome and again loved our cold towels with the beautiful distinctive aroma and delicious thirst quenching drink. We were quickly shown to our room which was room 207 this time and we loved...

The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport. Once we arrived, we knew we were in for a treat. Check in was easy and the staff explained everything to us. We then took a cart to our room, about an 8 minute walk from the lobby. Our room was a ocean view with a tub on the deck. The...

This was mine and my husband's first visit to Thailand and we felt like we hit the jackpot with beautiful Samui and The Tongsai Bay. The resort is spectacular - tucked away from the main road in a beautiful, lush jungle. Here is a quick snapshot of what we feel like stood out with Tongsai Bay: Service: The hotel staff...

We recently spent 3 nights here and can't find a single fault. It was the best part of our 8 nights in Thailand for sure. We enjoyed the food, the drinks, the spa, both pools, the beach, everything. Our room was stunning and so clean. Stay here, you won't regret it!!

Amazing time in Tongsai Bay! Accommodation, location and staff all superb. Nothing was too much trouble for all members of staff and every need was catered for. Will definitely visit again soon. Five minutes in a taxi to pharmacies, restaurants, tailors and massage parlours. 15 minutes to Chawemg Beach which is fast and racy - ladyboy shows, boxing and every...

This was our second visit to this resort, and we were made to feel as if we had been there many times more! They have many returners, and treat everyone as if they are very special, and welcomed. The environment is heaven, with flora and fauna abounding. The Sea View Cottages are just that - the views are spectacular, and...

We Went to this Amazing Resort for our Anniversary. Had the most restful vacation ever! The setting is lush and tropical and very Romantic. We had a Sea Front Cottage of the Bay that was breathtaking. Included was a private terrace and outside bathtub that added to the Romantic setting. The private beach was an added bonus for total relaxation....

We are fortunate enough to be regular visitors to the superfluous Tongsai Bay and can't wait to return on Friday. This is without doubt our favourite place in the world. Beautiful well tended grounds, great food, glorious tranquil setting, fabulous staff and management. If you are planning a trip to Samui, you will not regret choosing Tongsai.

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
