Went for our honeymoon years back, very exclusive place and nice beach and great spa. Staff were very friendly. Room was big and with poster bed, bathroom also very big. Our tub was at the balcony but did not use in the end because wary of insects. Only cons is you need to climb stairs to reach your cottage, which...

We knew this would be a great holiday, but The Tongsai Bay Hotel has far exceeded even our expectations! The situation, nestled away in a private bay, far from the 'madding crowd' with no jet ski's ruining the peace and tranquility of the calm seas, is as near to perfection as you will want, if all you want is to...

We stayed here for 10 nights in July 2009 and it is the most amazing place I have ever been. We got upgraded to a villa with a huge balcony right on the edge of the sea. It was so private the bath was outside, you could lie in the tub whilst looking out to sea. It also has its...

This is the first time we stayed in Koh Samui but have travelled around and can make a fair comparison for this hotel. I read the reviews before we went and could not believe how good they were and hoped we would not be disappointed. We weren’t, the staff really are fantastic and so friendly. The food in all of...

The hotel has pleasant little villas with small plunge pools and an elevated sea view. It is a seaside hotel, with a beach and beach bar down a few stairs. Like most hotels of the same category, buggies take you everywhere in the hotel. Breafkast buffet is OK. The management leaves biscuits and fresh fruit everyday in the room. Tea...

We stayed here for 11 nights on our honeymoon and I cannot fault this place one single bit. It is romantic, secluded and spotlessly clean with service levels that I would have previously thought impossible to attain. This is not a typical 5 star resort and is very much centred around the nature that thrives in the hills on which...

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
