This was our tenth holiday at Tongsai Bay. there are others that have visited more times than us. This means they are doing things right. Such a relaxing experience is ensured because of the smiling faces of the staff and hands on management. Great choice of restaurants to suit most tastes.

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...

We stayed at this hotel for a week. There are not enough adjectives to describe how good this hotel is. All the facilities you would ever need. Adult only pools and large family pools, tennis courts, own private beach and water sports club and the list goes on. Our room was impeccably clean and very very large (all with aircon)...

Great hotel and service, in a quite secluded place but very preserved and eco-friendly. Real nice view, a mix of sea and forest landscapes. As the place is quite large and steep, an electric buggy can get you anywhere in the resort, that’s very convenient ! A nice fruit basket is waiting for you everyday in the room and the...

Tongsai is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. And on my second visit is still the best!!! All the small details are covered and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful.

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
