I shopped around for a hotel very thoroughly and Poppies seemed a must considering it's private, boutique and has high reviews. We moved there from Tongsai Bay, the price was almost the same and we expected something comparable on a smaller scale although it was a benchmark probably impossible to beat but our stay was truly disappointing. The hotel territory... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in February when a some friends were there. This wasn't their first time, but it was ours and we weren't disappointed. On a previous visit to Samui we stayed at another hotel but ate at Poppies one night and the food was excellent. The hotel is made up of around 20 or... More

After travelling for over 20 hours we were delighted when we arrived at Poppies. The bungalow was spacious, air conditioned and in a very quiet location-a great place to recover from jet lag and recharge your batteries. The resort is very well looked after and all the staff go out of their way to ensure all your requirements are met.There... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but dropped in one night in Chaweng beach for a late dinner. Nice surprise to find the restaurant right on the beach with an open air patio and bar. We had some very good food that was a mix of Thai and western fare. Good quality and very nice atmosphere. Prices were also... More

Probably the best hotel I have stayed in! I know it takes some believing, but from the owner, through Manager to the Gardeners, the staff are fantastic.

We had extensively researched hotels for our first trip to Thailand and knew that Poppies had excellent reviews, however the realty was even better than we had hoped. This is a beautifully designed hotel and small enough to give personal and really exceptional service. The rooms, setting and food are certainly all 5*. We particularly enjoyed the weekly cocktail party... More

We travel a fair amount. I stay atop Hotels and resorts. Poppies is hands down one of the best resorts ever. If you want to be in a small hotel, without tour busses and groups of people burning loyalty points - this is it! Super staff. Incredible rooms. The perfect little sandy beach just close enough to walk into the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
