Beautiful resort, fantastic service and staff
beautiful room, lovely staff, close to the beach, nightlife and close to everything
Loved the resort. The room was great, nice and clean, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Huge pool with a great pool bar. The buffet breakfast was extensive with lots of different yummy food to try, as was the restaurant. The resort was close to everything that you could possibly want, beach, nighlife and all conveniences. Would definitely stay there again.

Simple hotel for only stay
It seems they are trying their best, in the coming years it may be a better hotel
We stayed at Dara Villa for our Honeymoon, We did not have any expectations but satisfied in the way of location, presentation, offerings, and service.

Great resort, great location and great staff
the pool, the rooms,
this was the first time we went to koh samui, and we will be definitely coming back. the resort was way better than we ever expected. we had friends staying all over samui and our rooms were by far the nicest. the only thing i would say is dont bother ordering room service, its not the best.

good location hotel
rooms are big in size
The location of this hotel is fantastic, However it was so cramed with people that you didnt want to swim in the pool. We ended up swiming in the maung samui pool which was next door in stead. Heaps of kids where in this resort.

A Great Disapointment
Housekeeping & Bar Staff
We have stayed in several hotels throughout Thailand and unfortunately this would have to be the worst we stayed in, we discovered this early on and tried to cancel our remaining nights with Dara, we had given them eight nights notice and they would not allow us to cancel our remaining accommodation, We had no choice but to stay in a Hotel that we were not happy in. The Staff in housekeeping, Bar and the girls in the spa were wonderful and very helpful unfortunatel I can not say the same about the front office staff, please be careful when booking accommodation in advance that you dont hold too many night as it is impossible to cancel your accommodation at this Hotel, we found Dara very noisy and a beach you could not swim in.

Great place to stay
Location, room size, cleanliness, staf friendliness and efficiency.
we recently returned from samui and enjoyed our stay at the dara samui beach resort and spa. we found our room to be large and well equipped with a huge bed, nice furniture, wall decorations, large bathroom, a personal safe and free lan cable internet. the hotel was clean and was designed with many outdoor sitting areas near greenery and fish-filled water features. walking to breakfast in the mornings, passing relaxing water fountains and fragrant flowers was a great way to start the day. the breakfasts were enjoyable with many egg options, fresh fruits, breads and sweet treats but it was not as extensive as the full international breakfasts seen in 5 star hotels. we found all the staff friendly and helpful. the pool was smallish and with few spaces around it for sun lounges but the beach area with many beach seats was a winner! on the sand and near the continuous parade of walkers and beach sellers it was a constant source of entertainment. service to this area was excellent. happy hours at 3-4pm and 6-8pm saw two-for-one deals and a wide array of snacks on offer. the hotel’s location at the northern end of chaweng beach was an advantage as it was near good shopping and street-side restaurants - the tree, duomo, red snapper, royal india ( cheap), café uno ( coffee, cake and snacks) were some we tried. beach-side of the hotel saw many restaurants on the sand. these had good food, cocktails, music and entertainment. the only problems we encountered at the hotel were with electrical/techno features like the door key card that twice refused to let us enter our room, the safe refused to open once and there was no iron available. the former two were remedied promptly. we enjoyed our stay, were sad to leave and would recommend this hotel. we look forward to returning.

Dara Villa
Stayed 5 nights in July 2011
Nice hotel, Villas were beautiful
Location, swimming pool, outdoor showers with villas
Not a great couples getaway as there were a large number of families making a lot of noise and disrupting the relaxing environment for the other guests. All other facilities were nice and expected for the price of the hotel.
