What can I say about the Tongsai Bay? Where do I even begin! We booked this hotel to stay for 4 nights in October on the basis of the reviews on here alone in the hope that it lived up to expectation, and well - if you're looking for a hotel in Koh Samui then this the ONE! We came...

I stayed here for two nights in September for my wedding. From the moment you walk into the Lobby you know you are going to have a wonderful stay. I honestly could not fault this resort, it is magical. The location is on a private beach but the a activities team have themed nights and activities each day so you...

We spent 11 days at Tongsai Bay and loved it. If you want to be left in peace and get away from the crowds and any vendors - this is the place. We had fun visiting other parts of the island, but were always more than glad that we had chosen the Tongsai Bay to return to. We had a...

It's no secret one can find beautiful 5 stars resort in koh samui for less than $150 per night. It's especially the case when traveling in low season. So when you are asked to pay over $270 per night for the most basic room you expect nothing short of WOW. You expect to get the best. The island comprise some...

An older establishment, in a good way, as it is unassuming, well maintained with mature foliage completing the landscape of the tranquil beach front location it is set, making it very cosy and unpretentious luxe. Our room is a beachfront suite, on upper floor, with a lovely view of the ocean, and the lapping waves the background sound. Service overall...

We spent seven nights at Tongsai Bay, returning after an absence of six years. We won't wait so long next time! The service was excellent, the food delicious, and our original 'cottage' delightful. For our final three nights we were upgraded to a Pool Villa, as the toilet in our original villa developed an intermittent fault. This was amazing: enormous...

I find this hotel difficult to review. We were booked to stay here for a week in March 2011 but because of the terrible floods we were only able to stay four nights. This turned out to be just the right amount of time. The hotel is situated in its own grounds quite a long way away from anything else...

We spent 4 nights in August 2012 on the way back from The Myanmar. We had a pool villa with a sea-view. That was really fantastic. The private pool is gorgeous. The rooms (we were with our 2 children 11 et 13) were wide and well furnished. The halfmoon pool is really something to experiment in the morning. Breakfast is...

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
