Amazing hotel but a bit far off the action”
Beach, room, facilities
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful surroundings with a lot of green around, well maintained grounds and amazing dark wood structures and décor. The private strip of beach is also definitely worth it, clean and pristine with sun lounge chairs available from the hotel. Very nice breakfast even though slightly expensive, but there is no restaurant in the premises to offer other meals for the day. It is a bit far from action (Chaweng/Bophut fisherman's village), but you can rent a scooter for 200B a day and explore the area by yourself. Only a short ride to the airport as well. For the services, the massages are very expensive though (~1500-2000B), so it is definitely worth it to get your massage fix either in the centre or other roadside massage places for tenth of the price.

Beautiful place”
Beach front, garden and massages
This is nicely decorated with a beautiful garden. The garden does mean more mosquitos but just be prepared for it as i think it's worth staying here despite them. Parking is possible but not easy as there's not a lot of space so you should hope that another guest isn't droving also. I would certainly recommend it and stay here again.

Excellent staff, but I have some problems...”
Staff, Comfort, Quiet
The staff was nice, but hotel location didn't allow us to do anything by walk. We had to rent a bike to lunch and dinner, because hotel didn't have restaurant (only breakfast). But the worst thing was several problems with power outage. Because of this, my smartphone charger and my MacBook charger burned.

Nice laid-back option on Bangrat beach”
Beachfront, quiet area but good access to services
This is a very nice option if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. Rooms were comfortable. The tropical garden is really very nice. The beach is just in front of the hotel and the sound of the waves on the beach is very relaxing. Breakfast was served privately to the room. Ask the front desk to get a driver to Chaweng or other destinations. A small beach front restaurant just 50 metres west of the hotel serves excellent Thai food.

Great untill the rain set in.”
Beach, location and Wi-Fi
After settling into our “Superior” room, I was happy with our choice. The room was smaller than I prefer,our balcony was huge and provided a great view. Wi-Fi was great, breakfast was served to us outside on the balcony or undercover was really nice but meant limited choice, we found it adequate. Staff were lovely. Falling asleep with the waves just outside our room was memorable as was having a great massage literally right on the beach! Unfortunately, the weather set in a day later and we were “rained” in for the remaining duration of our stay. This is where sadly our experience became less than pleasant. Our room leaked in several places, this with constant high humidity made everything feel damp. One thunderstorm created a water feature in our room, with water pouring onto the bedsides that we had our phones charging on. Water leaked on where our towels were stored, the coffee table and the dresser. The “outside” shower, toilet and spa bath were novel at first, but there wasn’t enough roof coverage to use the toilet without getting wet when it was raining & runoff poured into a channel some 12 inches from your feet. It is so hard to recommend this hotel after our experience… comfort is everything during a stay, especially when weather forces you inside, with nowhere to get comfortable… the bed being really firm and feeling damp… the chairs being heavy wood were beautiful, but not comfortable and even using the shower/toilet becomes a chore. Despite the owners best efforts to reduce mosquitoes I still got plenty of mozzie bites. No restaurant or room service. The food next door was good but very expensive, instead turn left as you step onto the beach walk 200m to the beach seafood restaurant for great food at great prices! We had one massage, would have had a lot more if the prices were reasonable. Now if we had been rained in at our next hotel (Mantra Samui) and had fine weather for our stay at Ban Sabai I’m sure our experience would have been so much better!

Nice romantic place.”
Nice view to the sea. The room was big and the service was quiet efficient .
At first there was no electricity so we had to use spotlights but later when the electricity returned, we could see the room is nice and pleasant to be in.It was very romantic. The sea view was great. We wished we could stay longer time.

looks nice at the pictures but needs cleaning”
personal touch and not as the others
This place looks nice at pictures but realy needs a total make over or at least a lot of hours cleaning. The place has probably had the same owner for many years and they were friendly and care taking. The rooms where large and cozy but the beds terrible and the hole room smelled stale. They realy should hire some one to clean all the corners and all the skirting board, top shelves, do the landry and fix the garden.

Unique beautiful hotel on the beach”
Great staff, unique rooms
Had a restful break at this gorgeous hotel. All rooms are directly on the beach, which was just stunning. Staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. All rooms were different and unique, including some with outdoor bathrooms! Easy enough to get around by taxi. Highly recommend to anyone.

Very relaxing surroundings and lovely breakfast on the balcony
nice stay but the fiinishings weren't quite complete. staff very friendly and willing but english was not good enough to understand what we needed. out jacuzzi didn't work and we just got a sorry but no one tried to make it work. a reason for booking this hotel was for the yoga and spa but these were ridiculously expensive for thailand. for a yoga class as they needed to call someone in.

Peaceful Getaway”
Quiet and peaceful
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ban Sabai in Koh Samui. It is small and traditional Thai accomodation - beautiful wooden interior in a natural setting overlooking the sea. The atmosphere is peaceful, calming and haven away from the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui. it's not 5 star but very clean and exceptionally peaceful. Not recommended for families.

Très bon hôtel de charme style Thai avec un caractère spécial, toutes les chambres sont équipées avec le confort et une décoration spéciale Thai antiquités. La douche et les toilettes sont à l'extérieur, ce qui est un plus et un charme certain.

Hotel boisé dans un jardin tropical”
Décors authentique, personnel au petit soin.
LEs chambre sont magnifiques, chacune avec son petit plus, une baignoire avec vue sur la mer pour l'une, présence d'une table de massage dans une autre. Le petit déj ( que vous composez selon vos goût) est servi en terrasse. Les massages sont "excessivement" chers, mais le cadre en met plein la vue. L'eau du golf est à cet endroit un peu vaseuse, dommage. Le personnel est très attentif et réactif: présence d'un medecin et consultation (gratuite) à la chambre dès le matin d'une nuit d'indigestion. Possibilité de louer des scooters pour accéder à plusieurs sites touristiques.
