We spent four nights in a deluxe garden room 403 which is the bungalow at the front on the end closest to the street. Despite this, our room was quiet and we experienced no noise from the street and had the advantage of not have people passing our bungalow on their way to the pool or restaurant. The bottle opener on the bathroom wall was a novel idea. There was good WIFI except at peak times.
Housekeeping only provided us with one small cake of soap so by the third day we were forced to ask for soap to be provided.
The pool was really inviting, but we loved the beach which was beautiful and calm and had the clearest of water – just stunning. Beware though we did see a snake by the pool which we reported to staff who were more amused than concerned by it.
I can recommend eating at Crystal on the opposite side of the road from the hotel and to the right – good price and very tasty meals.
Banana Fansea is the perfect location in Samui, with most guests being couples over 30. It is located right on the best part of the beach, in a quiet area but still within walking distance to central Chaweng. The bungalows were a little dated, but the price, value and location more than made up for this. We were very pleased we chose to stay here, and would do so again without hesitation if we returned to Samui.
