Great service from the staff especially front desk who were extremely helpful for the 36 hours I stayed the rooms were comfortable and I got a good deal thru agoda Breakfast has to be seen to be believed it was fab ! the hotel has a private beach and pools are refreshing as I say only 36 hrs stay so that about wraps it up

We hope to have you here for a longer period of time for you to have a more memorable and relaxing holiday with us. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
Great resort, plunge pool room”
We stayed for 8 nights in a plunge pool room. Initial check in was not good after being told our room was not available until the following day due to the hotel being over booked. Once we finally got in to our room it was lovely, spacious, & great outdoor plunge pool / relaxation. The resort is big & full of young children, so we were glad to have our own escape. Set right on the beach with lovely views. The only negative is unlike neighbouring resorts who have installed steps from the beach to the walk way, you have to trudge through tough sand to get into fishermans village. Small detail but would greatly improve access for guests. Breakfast was great, fairly decent options to choose from.
Dear Amanda, Thank you for sharing your great holiday experience with us and we are glad that you enjoy your stay with us. We apologize if we didn't provide the room on your first day. Regarding the steps we can't put it as the beach is public and we are a bit far to fisherman village not same neighbor hotel which a few steps to fisherman. Nevertheless thank you for sharing your feedback and will check if in the future we can make this. We hope you will consider us again for another visit soon. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
The resort is great on a top location. The staff members are very kind and lovely for the kids. Food and beverage are everywhere perfect. Only point of improvement is that housekeeping need to be sharper on the finishing touches, but overall a great resort.
Dear Dave, Thank you for sharing your great experience with us and found our resort as one of the top when it comes to location and that our service and facilities were up to your expectations. I will share your feedback with our team housekeeping and will do our best to improve our standard of cleaning service. Thank you that overall your stay experience is great. We do hope to see us again for future holiday experience. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager

Perfect Koh Samui location”
We just spent 9 days at Bandara and had a lovely time. The breakfast is great and the hotel is a short stroll to Fishermans village. The grounds are beautifully maintained and there is a lovely mix of nationalities and couple and family groups and well catered for.

Beautiful beach stay”
Received a complimentary room upgrade which was a nice surprise, beautiful lemongrass oil scented the room , view over reception and main pool from balcony. The shower is awesome- 3 options to choose from, fantastic. Even though they are upgrading roads so no footpath out of resort, the staff assist you in crossing the road and 5 minutes walk on the beach and in fisherman’s village. Fantastic spa package on special at the time , soo relaxing. Fitness room had great equipment ...for families plenty to keep everyone occupied. Food was delicious, great options at breakfast. Room service was quick and large portions also. This place was busy for my stay but I always got a bed by the pool, or was able to work out in the gym, get spa treatment...would recommend and would definitely return.

Nice spot for a break in the sun”
Very comfortable room, with nice balcony. Pool areas are very good and ocean frontage is a bonus. Short walk to fisherman's village, where there are lots of options for bars and restaurants. Breakfast was great, lots to choose from. Found the drinks and restaurant food a little expensive to what we're used to. In house spa too expensive to consider as an option. Transfers to Chaweng Beach (2/day) were handy. House staff were awesome, kept topping up the fresh fruit the entire stay.
Dear Bernard, It was nice to hear from our lovely guests that they had a comfortable and relaxing holiday with us and that we meet your satisfaction. Will hare your kind words of appreciation to our team who make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable. We hope for another visit from you soon. With Best Regards, Evangeline A.

Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
Great all round really. Food was excellent with the exception of the seafood bbq on the beach, avoid this is you like your food warm. The restaurant was excellent and reasonably priced, save your money and eat there. Rooms, pools etc all excellent
Dear Jeremy, Thank you for your lovely review from your holiday with us. We take note and will share this comment regarding our BBQ buffet on the beach to our chef. Overall your experience with us was great and we hope for another visit soon. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
The family room was very spacious. Loved the complimentary fruits and candy. The room service was good and not expensive. The pools were very lovely. My daughter enjoyed going to the kids’ clubhouse. There were activities to do. The breakfast was very good with a wide variety. However, the resort has a lot of mosquitoes so need to use a lot of repellant. The room also has mosquitoes. Would be good if staff were more attentive when attending to customers instead of attending to customers who interrupt a customer being served. This happened a few times with the Caucasian tourists interrupting us when we were being served by the staff during check in and when enquiring about other things. It would be good to sell more dresses and things for kids in the resort. The dresses sold were beautiful but limited. There was an incident where the driver got into an accident but we were not refunded for that trip and he used our phone to call someone and We are charged with auto roaming rates.
Dear Nicole, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your family's wonderful holiday. We take note of your comment regarding our staff to be more attentive I have shared this with our team so we can improve our shortfall. And we are sad that you had experience accident with one of your trips and we are so sorry about this and we hope we knew this so we can check it with the company. Glad that overall experience was amazing. We hope to see us again. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
Amazing stay we stayed at Bandara for 4 nights with our 6 year old daughter she had a great time in the pool coz there ate 3 pools, the kids club is superb the staff is very friendly special thanks to Andy he was very helpful .the restaurants at the beach its a lovely sight, serene and calm sand is a lil coarse n slippery but thats ok water sport facilities are there you can do it through the hotel itself , the fisherman village is a must visit lovely restaurants by the beach side once again thank you we loved n enjoyed our stay .
Dear Kashmira, Thank you for sharing your amazing 4 days family holiday experience with us and giving us a perfect score. We are glad that your daughter had great time and enjoy our facilities and our staff service was up to your expectations. We hope to have another opportunity from you & your family to visit us again soon. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
We had a great holiday at the Bandara! Booked a family room with a 3 year old and 5mo old and it was perfect, plenty of space and nice to have the seperate room for the kiddos. Breakfast was nice, my only complaint was that the hot offerings didn't change so by the end of our stay we were a bit bored. The beach has plenty of shade and is right next to one of the pools which is nice. The beach has very course sand so not very good for sandcastles! The pools were lovely and have cabanas that give plenty of shade and the pool also has a little bit of shade at the ends which is perfect with kids. Very easy walk into Bophut and Fisherman's village. You ca walk along the beach but we found it slow going with the kids so we just walked down the road which is better with a buggy and kids and only 200m or so. Lots of lovely restaurants and shopping in Bophut, not too big but also with some nice quality shops. Definitely recommend!
Dear Alexandra, Thank you for staying with us for 5 nights we are delighted that you & your family had a lovely holiday with us. We take note of your comment regarding the breakfast choices and will make sure that this will shared with the concerned department. Thank you for sharing your feedback and overall of your stay was up to your expectations. We hope to see you & your family again in the future. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
The hotel was nice & clean with great amenities. The hotel is very child friendly and you can find so many young families but usually they stay near kids pool area so beach and pool nearby usually very quiet and relaxing. Rooms are very clean and nice with very comfortable beds. For breakfast they offer wide range of choices (international&asian) and the best part is its served in hotel restaurant by the beach. In terms of location its walking distance to fisherman village where you can find plenty of nice but expensive restaurants but you can find some small nice restaurant very close to hotel that offer great food at very good price ( search trip adviser).
Dear Mohammad, Thank you for leaving such a great review and perfect score from your holiday with us. We hope we have another opportunity for a relaxing and memorable holiday. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
Best Resort i've ever stay”
I love everything about this resort. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The breakfast wide selection. The private beach are great. The room are clean. Location is close to fisherman's village and convenient shops. Highly recommend. Would stay here again in future.
Dear Nurul, Thank you for making our resort the best you ever stay. It is with pleasure that you found the staff helpful and friendly. We do hope that we see us again for another great stay. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
We loved the hotel room, grounds, breakfast and most of the staff but the toiletries , tea etc were not renewed on a daily basis also the bath mat was not changed even though it was dirty, when I asked for it to be changed the maid felt it as if it wasn't wet but it had dirty foot marks on it also we paid our final bill roughly an hour before check out so reception rang through to the maid to check the mini bar to which they were told she was cleaning another room, she did end up checking it quickly but left our room door open with our suitcases in along with various personal belongings about and finally the survey form in a sealed envelope was opened, the envelope put in the bin but no sign of the form. I am writing this because these little things spoil what was lovely hotel in every other respect. Stefan on reception was excellent.
Dear Paul, It is nice to hear that you had a relaxing holiday with us. We sincerely apologize regarding what you described it is certainly does not meet the standard we set forth, and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience. I would like to assure you that it has been highlighted to the relevant Heads of Department and appropriate action has been taken to avoid the issue re-occurring in the future.Your feedback is valuable as it helps us identify the areas we can improve the guest experience. We hope to have another chance for a visit in the future. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
The Bandara hotel was very special as it accommodated all of our needs. To name a few- superb room located on first floor with balcony, great swimming pool with the added bonus of complimentary towels,superb breakfast in a stunning location next to the beach, staff great and overall would highly recommend. The only slight down side was the price of air port transfers sorted by the the hotel which was a lot higher than the average taxi.
Dear Michelle, It was with pleasure to read that we accommodate all your needs from room, location of hotel, amenities and the staff service. We do hope to have you here again for another great experience with us. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
*PART 2 OF 2* Ultimately, it took me raising my voice a great deal and refusing to take no for an answer until a female staff member (who was great) came and instructed Bond to find us 3 rooms now. The whole situation was SO embarrassing for my whole family and to have this happen after such a joyous occasion was so disappointing. A friend who wasn't able to attend the wedding had purchased myself and my husband a spa package from Bandara. It turned out the front desk had sent the vouchers to the wrong room. When we finally received our vouchers on our last day (i.e. we went down to reception and had to ask for them) we were unable to book the spa. The spa staff were very apologetic but they were fully booked because there was a wedding party from Korea who had bookings all day. After much to-ing and fro-ing they managed to squeeze us in, mostly I think because they thought bridezilla was going to explode! Bandara did not offer us any good will gesture after these incidents.
Dear Katherine, It is with regret that we didn't meet your expectations during your stay. We sincerely apologize and not intention to make you feel disappointing with your stay. We unfortunately had an unavoidable circumstances that cannot be fixed immediately. Our intentions is not to make anyone embarrass or feel disappointed and ruin honeymoon. It is also hard for us to relocate guests into one of our sister hotel, but this is best option. For the compensation we have full options to offer for the inconvenience. Our staff try to explain that this is not a obligation rather a huge favor if you could help us, so we can fix the problem in our room. Once again we sincerely apologize for all of the inconvenience we caused you. And we still hopping that in some point of time you will visit us again. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
