We stayed in Tongsai Bay with our 14 month old son for a week from 15th to 22nd of May 2012. We were booked for a Seafront pool villa but they upgraded us to an even bigger and better Villa- No. 501. It was an amazing experience!!! LOCATION The resort is around 10 minutes from the airport. The pick up... More

We just got back from spending 5 nights at the Tongsai Bay resort with my wife. We did all of our research on the resort via Trip Advisor which proved to be very helpful. We stayed in a Seaside Pool Villa (Room # 501) and I can honestly say it was one of the nicest rooms / villa we have... More

I strongly recommend this resort on the beautiful island of Koh Samui. My partner and I had 8 magnificent days & nights relaxing here in the middle of two busy trips to Bangkok (also a must see) Tongsai is a short taxi ride from the airport located near enough to many busy villages/ towns. You can hide in the resort... More

I feel compelled to write a review as there have been some recent bad ones written about Tongsai which are complete rubbish and totally unjustified.

This hotel was absolutely amazing. We stayed for 7 days which was relaxing and fun. The resort is small in terms of guest numbers but the resort is big in comparison. this means the facilities are always free.

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
