My fiancé and I had a wonderful time at this amazing property. Starting with our classy check-in experience, which included a personal introduction from the front desk manager, while we were seated at a comfortable lounge area with welcome drink (right up to the end when they helped me with my dropped wallet). After check-in, we were driven down to...

This is our first stay in Koh Samui and it set the bar extremely high. Arguably Koh Samuis finest in cleanliness, impeccable service, pristine private beach and all the items you can ask for. Only issue is that it's quite far from the main road so taxi is required everywhere, make sure to ask for outside cab as it's cheaper....

We went to the W (lounge/woo bar) for my parents 70th birthday celebrations. Although we arrived late, the team there looked after us, seated us at a table and later secured as a pod to watch the sun set. When the bar staff saw birthday cards they brought out complimentary shots which was amazing of them. The bar team were...

Management worked with us to ensure it was a REMARKABLE stay, for a special occasion. We ended up there during the tail end of a record flood - however, the resort went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time - and offered discounted activities and spa services, as well as comp treats, discounted room service and mini...

So all the pictures you've seen and all the stories you've heard about the W Koh Samui are true. We stayed there in Oct 2016 and I've been meaning to write this for sometime. We arrived the day after the unfortunate passing of the previous King of Thailand. The atmosphere of the hotel was understandably one of sombre and respectful...

The next day we checked into W around 1 pm. It took about 20 minutes from Chaweng beach to W hotel by taxi and cost around 400 Baht.A...
