This hotel was the highlight of our recent Thailand holiday. The promo pics are exactly like the hotel is. No hidden nasties just out of the picture. The staff are the most friendly and helpful I have ever come across. The location is perfect. A truly private beach that is quite no matter what time of day. Stunning rooms regardless...

Everything from the people, the service, the ambiance, the location, the food and every little detail was just specular! We stayed as part of a mid sized group (3 couples of 2) travelling from the U.K., South Africa and Australia for 4 nights in late Jan early Feb. Across the group we had 2x Beachfront Suites and 1x Nang Gong...

2nd time here and it was just as fabulous as we remembered. Calm, relaxing, beautiful. This is understated luxury. What really makes it stand out is the personal service from all the staff. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Special mention goes to Tang, Krit and the spa manager. Wonderful pool - plenty of sunbeds. Great food...

We visited Tong Sai Bay for the second time. Now with a toddler and a baby we chose a pool Vila. The hotel sits on a hill facing the bay with the different villas scattered and very well integrated in the vegetation. It's at times hard work with strollers because of the amount of stairs. Staff are super helpful and...

Very nice resort that was built in perfet location to become a bit secluded. Have a private beach that is naturally not accessible to outsiders. So this is really a good place for a peaceful vacations. The pool is alo very good and the staff friendly. They have a taxi company stationed in the yard, so it's convenient to get...

We stayed here for the last two weeks of Jan 2017, meeting our son who is living in Australia. We booked a cottage villa for us and a pool room for our son, both of which were very comfortable. The cottage villa has a larger and more private terrace but the pool room was lighter and brighter with an enormous...

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
