“Excellent, highly recommended!!!”
It was a truly fantastic experience. From our arrival until our departure, the staff took extremely good care of us, and went out of their way to help and make us feel welcome and comfortable. The hotel itself is not new but has been thoroughly renovated and the standards are very high, even for InterConti ones. There is an uncompromising attention to detail, from the toiletries (amazing quality) to the linen; from the food (I had the best steak ever at Flames restaurant - and I know about steaks, I'm from Argentina!) to the choice of pillow; from the cocktails, to the massages at the spa. The manager was very hands on, and interacted with guests; listened to suggestions and made himself available if needed. I also took two comlplimentary classes- yoga and Thai boxing, both thoroughly enjoyable. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to coming back.
We had chosen a garden villa for our family vaccation in the second week of September. We booked early through Expedia and benefitted from great rates. The hotel had very thin occupancy and it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. The pool next to our villa was virtually ours and we enjoyed the privacy. The down side of low occupancy was that some services were not available but we did not mind that. Having said that all other services were prompt and efficient. The breakfast was basic and did not change for the entire week we were there. May be the hotel can improve on that. Otherwise it was fantastic and we had a very enjoyable time. Real value for money at the rates we got as the location, quality of rooms and environment is absolutely brilliant. We are regular visitors to Samui and know the island well and got around quite a bit as we had rented a car. Special mention must be made with thanks to Johan at the front office for giving us his personal tips for good eating places on the island. Thanks to him that we had our best Thai meals at Sabienleige (near Rocky's just before Lamai) and Haad Ban Po (just after Four Seasons) Real authentic "Samui food" as Johan put it. Unfortunately we could not try the pizza place near Bophut. I guess that's a good enough reason to return!!
Exceptional experience. They thought of everything and then added some. Superb breakfast. Fresh tropical fruit in the room every day. Ice water and fresh fruit delivered to my chair at the beach before I thought I wanted them. Innumerable gorgeous pools scattered throughout the large hill-side compound. Deserted beautiful beach to walk on, kayaks to paddle, great food to sample. It helped that we were there just before Christmas, which is their slow season, so the resort was not in the least crowded. Can't wait to go back.
Beautiful landscape, glorious beach and high quality of service. Staff is very courteous and friendly. Away from the bustle of the main tourists area but then that's the main attraction if you are into peace and tranquility. The only issue I had was paying for hotel shuttle service to town. Dinner in town turned out to be a tad expensive since you got to add the cost of shuttle. The other alternative was dining at the hotel but that was pretty steep by North American standard too.
“We really enjoyed our stay.”
I suppose that the hotel is one of bests in this area. Very relaxing, quiet, comfortable and hospitable. If you don't expect night life so much, this may be the best choise. The view from there is excellent. If I say something for its future development, food (in particular dinner) is a bit boring and expensive in comparison with other local restraunts.
“See more of what Samui used to be ike and great for kids”
Our second stay and our kids were in tears when we had to leave! New management has added some new touches, but the staff are the same and remain very welcoming. If staying for a while would suggest hiring a car as this allows you to get much more out of the island. The hotel has great accomodation and ammenities, but the food although good can get repetetive and is expensive compared to other restaurants. There are two very good restaurants within walking distance (Five Islands and Annanas) which are excellent and offer better value.
The Baan Taling Ngam is just beautiful. Magnificent view. Romantic yet good for our 5 yr old as well. CLean, kinder thankind staff. Food was divine. And the little gulf buggies taking you up and down from the beach to the jungle-mountain reception, restaaurant, Cliff top villas and rooms were just super! Am going there again in 2 weeks! PS: Do not miss the flower/milk bath in the huge private outdoor bathtub in the SPA - We did it at 3, parents and kid at sunset time and felt extremely pampered!
