Just spent 9 days at Poppies and it wasn't long enough. The Thai style cottages are a little piece of heaven. From the hustle bustle of the main street you pass through reception into tranquil lush tropical gardens and instant relaxation commences.

I stayed at Poppies in Bali years ago, just loved it! Poppies in Koh Samui is even better, because it's on the beach. It's on the southern part of the great Chaweng Beach, away from the busy noisy northern part of Chaweng. 24 bungalows are hidden in the most beautiful tropical garden, connected with narrow pathways, waterfall, fish pond, pagoda.......

The food and service was impeccable and the view was amazing. Everyone was so welcoming, helpful and accomodating. the resort was beautiful. It was also well situated on Koh Samui but you couldn't tell you when you were in the resort itself that there were big markets around it. We loved this accomodation. Thanks for the incredible holiday. From the...

All the good things written about this hotel are true. The cottage was great - especially the bathroom - all very high quality fittings. The breakfast was without doubt, the finest - no buffet - full menu service offering anything you could wish for. Staff could not do enough to please.

Lovely bungalows. Staff could not be more helpful. Good value holiday. Although not the fault of the hotel the front beach will need some attention due to the pounding of the sea in the recent bad weather.

A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali, Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location. ... more   less
