Our stay at Bandara was a breath of fresh air. The staff were welcoming and extremely helpful when it came to arranging taxis and finding a local laundry service. The food was also delicious--eating it on the water was an added bonus. My two friends and I stayed in one of the villas--it was so beautiful that we spent an... More

The main problem was to do with the pool, it was dirty and looked unhygienic and therefore we didn't use it encase of illness. The wood pool surround was grey/black making it look very cheap and not maintained! Would advise against this place, all in all it was poor and unacceptable,

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon at Bandara Resort and Spa in a Koh Samui. The attention to detail was great and we often found little treats in our room after the room had been cleaned. We never used the spa as it was very expensive and there weren't any deals for residents available. Our pick up from... More

My family just stayed at Bandara and enjoyed the week at the hotel and surrounding Bophut area. The hotel offers four swimming pools which never made the pools feel busy and a beachfront which included sun chairs and beach bar to relax. The staff were friendly and efficient.
