Fair 4.0
We chose this hotel for our honeymoon but were truly disappointed. No sandy beach, old pool and beach amenities. The rooms are spread out far on the property and are old and outdated. Mold and mildew smell in the bed. This place needs updating and renovation for a five star resort. Breakfast is great but cheaper resorts offer the same. Location is somewhat far away from the action. Not walkable to anything. Staff was awesome though!

Exceptional 10.0
Awesome ambience, old wood all over the resort and cottages, clean and crisp surroundings. The staff and service are impeccable. We stayed at a pool cottage for 6 nights, had a wonderful restful and relaxing time. I prefer resorts that have "aged" gracefully to those modern marble-ized ones. To say Tongsai aged gracefully is an understatement. The lush gardens, cobbled walkways, and of course the smiling and efficient staff make for a perfect vacation. We explored Samui via a motorbike as recommended by Tang - the ever smiling gentleman. At $12 a day, we were able to explore several beaches as far away south as grandma/grandpa rock, night markets, buddhist shrines p pretty much all must sees in Samui. After a day of island hopping to Ko Tao, we indulged in a most relaxing deep tissue oil massage. Quick hint - the staff at main lobby offered us a Bht 4000+ per person package to Ko Tao, which luckily, was already fully booked. She found us another tour group - for Bht 1500 per person, which was fantastic. Lastly, we ate many meals in Tongsai, and I have to say all the ala cartes were high quality and to put it mildly, fantastic meals (we ordered only Thai food). Only thing I was disapointed was their breakfast buffet - no variety in the choices. They served exactly the same things every morning. Having the exact choices for 6 days was a drag.

Absolute Amazing Resort!
Absolute amazing resort! You can see from the pictures it is beautiful but there is so much more: Well trained staff with fast and efficient service; They pick you up when you book the tennis court with a cooler box - free bottled water and face cloths in the cooler that is SO needed when you play in the heat (just that extra!); a very very good Spa (we did the aromatherapy massage and it was just so relaxing and just beautiful); the beach restaurant which had a ‘pasta fiesta’ buffet option that was absolutely delicious; to top it excellent entertainment (fireshow and saxophonist); the breakfast is WOW with freshly made smoothies / shakes and one of the best egg Benedict’s I have ever had - very good selection; And the beautiful pool by the private beach... What more can you ask for! An amazing destination with amazing service and entertainment / facilities. I highly recommend Tongsai Bay - 5 Stars!

Outstanding in every way
We travel widely and have nothing but praise for The Tongsai Bay - it was outstanding. The location is stunning, with the lush forest so close you feel immersed in it. Our children loved the birds, insects and lizards that were part of daily life. The rooms are beautiful and the pool area stunning. The breakfast buffet was generous and high quality, and we looked forward each day to lingering over it in the gorgeous restaurant, with its wide verandas and forest outlook. Food was great, with a wide choice of interesting options. The best part of this hotel though is by far and away its staff - we can't speak highly enough of them. One of our children fell ill during our stay and needed to go to hospital - during a very stressful time both then and during her recovery, the staff went out of their way to help us and did everything we asked and more with warmth and kindness. Nok, Chet and Moo in particular were incredible. For all of these reasons, The Tongsai Bay is a very special place.

Old colonial charm by the beach
Really, What a good secluded beach location with none of the annoying motorized water sports to deal with. If your goal is rest & recuperation or honeymooning than this is the place. Set amidst beautifully maintained gardens and nature preserves are well appointed rooms and villas that face the sea. There is enough to do for both adults and kids with the water sports like kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, etc. The beach is also very nice and private with no intrusions from neighboring resorts. The staff at the resort is just great, they do their very best to make your stay memorable. The main lobby and the restaurants have a lovely view and reminded us of the old British colonial charm. They may not be flashy as some of the global hotel chains but sure did roll back the years with some excellent interior decorations form the past. I normally stay at the Marriotts, Sheratons or Hiltons, but am glad to say that I took the decision to venture out to the Tongsai Bay as they were the first 5 Star in Koh Samui and they got the best location.
