We recently stayed at the W Resort in Koh Samui (Luxury Escapes package) for 7 days. We booked a Tropical Oasis Private Pool Villa (Room 131) and were wowed from the moment we walked through the door. Our Villa was extremely spacious and lacked nothing for a comfortable stay. We had a private courtyard that included our 11m pool, a king sized day bed under cover, outdoor table and chairs and 2 sun beds with mattresses. Apart from socialising and eating, there was really no need to leave the Villa. The resort itself offers a wide variety of things to entertain yourself, especially if it's raining, where they put on wet weather contingency activities like cooking classes and cocktail tastings to keep you occupied. The Resort staff go above and beyond to make sure your stay is exceptional - and they don't disappoint. The Sip and Woo bars are the hubs of the resort with one main community pool for everyone's use. The resort is quite spread out so, if you aren't able to climb a few levels of stairs to go from your villa to the restaurant, reception or Woo bar, all you have to do is ring and they send a golf cart to come and collect you. In fact, you can call for a golf card for any reason to take you from your villa to anywhere at the resort. They have a well equipped gym and daily exercise classes provided plus an on-site spa facility which was excellent. For once they listened when they were told which pressure was preferable. Very relaxing. The beach area provides guests with standard sun lounges as well as bean bag lounges which are very addictive. Just try not relaxing in one of those! The only downside to the resort is that they do not have a community pool on/near the beach and Sip Beach Bar. This would have been ideal to cool off, grab a drink then go back to absorbing the tranquil views from the beach. The resort also offers 3 free shuttles into and out of Chaweng per day. This allows you to go in and explore town before heading back after a day of shopping or experiencing some of the local restaurants. All in all I highly recommend the W Resort Koh Samui for somewhere you can really relax and recharge.

3 nights at the end of an 18 day holiday. This was my indulgent treat for 2 years hard work on a big business project, and it was everything I hoped for. We booked a ocean front haven - which was amazing. The room was serviced twice daily, and had everything you could want with the Whatsapp feature allowing you to ask for anything. My partner hit the sweet spot - free ice cream 24/7 pretty hard. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Remembered your name and preferences after only one interaction. Breakfast buffet included is very well stocked and presented. The whole retreat is spectacular and restful. At times it almost felt like we had it to ourselves. There is a transfer to Chaweng by shuttle 3 times daily or for 500baht by private car. Fisherman’s wharf is also a short trip. Our whole stay was perfect.

Hidden on the north side of the island near the big buddha, this resort will truly capture you and make you feel completely isolated from the rest of the island. The lobby opens up in a reflecting pool with sunken seats and an outdoor bar, with lower levels holding the main Resturant, and pool before landing on the beach where all of the villas are located. Either walk or have a golf cart whisk down the hill to your room, or the beach side Resturant and bar!

This W was one of my two favorite W experiences. The second being South Beach Miami. I’ve frequented over 40 W properties and found this style to fit what I was looking for in my mid 20s. The W koh samui is away from the main strip but so are all the other luxury properties. Nestled throughout the massive campus are complimentary ice cream and drink stands. The villas are massive with their own private pools. The staff is perfect. One of the whatever whenever specialists assisted with virtually anything including taking my laundry to her local laundromat for me on a busy day. Restaurants are amazing.
