4 star bits - We stayed for a week in a Sala Pool Villa late June. The resort is very clean and tidy and well tended. The room was a disappointment, looking a little tired, hardly any handing space (luckily left 2 bags in Bangkok), no long dress space and only a couple of drawers. Outside bathroom was nice ish but again had seen better days and was getting tatty. We had just left the Banyan Tree in Bangkok so it took my husband 3 hours to calm down and stop moaning about what a 5* should be, happy days! Pool area nice, covered day bed and 2 loungers. Communal areas and beach plenty of loungers. 2 good pools. Beach looked great for 3 days and then low tide.... not something you see in the brochures, the beach then looked a complete dump, felt really sorry for people who had just arrived as it was the same for the next 4 days we were there, brown rock pools, hideous site.

5 star bits - food!!! OMG absolutely fantastic, every meal! We were on half board, great choice, great quality absolutely outstanding as was the service - Aommy deserves a special mention she was great. There was a film on the beach twice a week which was nice, a Thai show and fire act, beach barbecue - all excellent. There was another restaurant on site just near the gate - Italian, limited menu but excellent food and service.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled as a couple

Dear "Virginia K",

Thank you very much for choosing SALA Samui and your glowing comments about the food and service. We will pass on your mention to Aommy. Apologies for the very low tide which only happens during the summer equinox under the moon's influence. We look forward to welcoming you back in due time.

Kind Regards,

We stayed at SALA for 5 nights in a pool villa and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool villa and resort itself was exactly what we wanted - a place that we could stay and not leave if we didn’t want to.

The biggest breakfast with A La Carte options was sensational and the service throughout the entire resort was fantastic. The restaurant and pool bar were great for both lunch and dinner, and plenty of good authentic restaurants just outside of the resort within walking distance.

If we ever come back to Koh Samui, SALA Choengmon Beach will be our first option. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay!

Amazing value and excellent facilities. I wish I can transplant the resort to a better beach!

Room: We stayed in a pool villa, and the room was immaculate, beautifully decorated in a modern, classy and airy way. The villa offered privacy and our room here at Sala was the best room we had in our two week stay in Thailand.

Service: I thoroughly enjoyed the service that they provided, their hospitality was subtle in a good way. The thoughtful details such as nuts, dried fruits in the room, turn down service with iced tea, a note from the chef at night, free water while in the pool, fruits being passed while lounging in the pool, really made the resort standout. The service provided by the staff mirrored the simple elegant aesthetics of the resort. I much prefer the understated way they provided service, it made the excellent service everyone provided seem expected and routine, not for show.

Amenities: The resort had beautiful and well maintained grounds, with two amazing pools. Only minor gripe was that the black lap pool was supposed to be adults only, but kids were allowed in the pool during my stay. The kids were not disruptive so I did not make an issue out of it, but it would have been nice if this adults only policy was enforced. The white pool was beside the restaurant, so it made swimming in it during breakfast and lunch a little awkward as there are tables literally beside the pool.

Beach: The only subpar part about this experience. Maybe I had too high of an expectation, maybe I'm comparing the beaches in Thailand to the beaches in Hawaii. However personally, the beach was lackluster. There is a slight sheen on the water, and the sand is sometimes silty and discolored after a rain storm. The water was very calm, and sand white and soft, however I preferred to swim in the pool than the beach. And that was unfortunate as I was really looking forward to enjoying the beach.

Overall: I would love to come back to this resort again, and I would not hesitate to visit any Sala properties in Thailand.

Room Tip: Get the villa, it is worth it!

We booked a 2nd story room, and is was spacious with a separate shower/bathtub, air-con good, short walk to pool area and breakfast/dining, breakfast was amazing with ordering your own or buffet style, all you can eat, service was great, we lounged around the pool most of the day drinking and making new friends which we then go out each night to explore dining and drinking spots.

Dear 'Wassa66',

Thank you very much for your most kind feedback following your stay. As you say the 'all-you-can-eat' breakfast buffet with a al carte menu is one of, if not the best on Samui as noted by our diners. We all look forward to welcoming you back to maybe see 'old friends' on your next visit.
