the best hotel in Koh Samui! just perfect!”
one of the best hotels i've ever been to. the location is amazing- on the bophut beach, 5 min walk from the fisherman's village. a huge place with several pools, direct access to the beach and a great restaurant. the room is big, clean and well designed. amazing shower. very kind and helpful staff. great value for money.

Thank you and we hope to have you here again. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Personal Assistant to General Manager
Amazing resort with great friendly staff. The resort is in a great location and a skip away from Bo Phut Fisherman's Village and night market (best night market in Samui in my opinion). Its the perfect family resort and life was just relaxing...buffet breakfast follow by the pool follow by the beach and repeat. Thank you Bandara!

Definitely recommend staying here, it is a fantastic hotel”
We loved this hotel. The location is great, right on the beach and less than 10 minutes walk in to Fisherman's Village where there is a large night market on Friday's and a smaller one on Monday and Wednesday. The facilities at the hotel are superb, the staff are really friendly and the whole experience was delightful.

Excellent Holiday at the Bandara”
This was our second trip to the Bandara after having an amazing experience there on our honeymoon in 2013. This time we returned with two kids in tow. Amazing location, with literally 5star facilities and located in quite possibly one of the best spots in Koh Samui (Bo Phut). Staff were so friendly to us and the children. the cleaner kept our room nice and tidy everyday (and we are quite a messy family). Couldn’t rate this place highly enough. I would urge anyone contemplating to stay here to have no concerns whatsoever. You’ll absolutely love it here!
Friendly and helpful staff, great facilities, beach front !”
Wow what an amazing team Bandara had. Stefan greeted us upon arrival and catered to everything our wedding group needed. He even organised room upgrade for our group! The facilities was always clean and all staff were friendly and always on hand to help! Or group had such an amazing time and experience at Bandara we didn't want to leave and a big part to that was due to Stefan and all the super friendly and kind team members here! Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful we were so sad to leave!
Dear Saroj, Thank you for choosing us to stay. It was a pleasure to hear that you and your family, friends had amazing holiday with us and enjoy our hotel, facilities and service was exceeded.

Location very good. Big clean rooms. Only thing that put me off and stop me from returning this place is the RUDE service!!!! We booked to stay at the pool villa suite for 3 nights. 1. requested a late check out because we were moving to another resort, I understand there were guests coming so we were fine to leave at checkout time. But not only we didn’t get a complementary drop off ( which was guaranteed by the manager Stefan, we were rushed to check out. I got a phone call at 11:30, as we were walking towards the reception. And then Staff came to kick us out th room but we were not even leaving yet. 2. my drink was taken away from me by the pool even I said to the staff you can leave it here. And some of them seem to be quite desperate for tips as they always wait and stare at you as you sign the bill. Is such a shame the hotel has rude hospitality otherwise me and my partner will definitely come back.
Dear Siyi, Thank you for choosing our resort and sharing your holiday experience. We apologize certain aspect of your stay was not up to your expectation. We take note of your comment regarding the rudeness of our staff and shared this with our management to check and investigate this we hope that this event won't deter you from coming back to our resort. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience and we do hope to have another chance for your visit. Once again we deeply apologize With Best Regards, Evangeline A.

Excellent family friendly hotel”
A great family friendly hotel, with a fantastic location. The hotel arranged a great range of nightly themed activities on the beach, or the hotel is only 400m from Fisherman’s Village to get out and about, for something different (I.e. markets, restaurants, sports bars etc.). We stayed 2 weeks with 3 young kids (6yrs, 2yrs & 3 months) and loved it. We will be back.
Dear Stephan, Thank you for choosing our resort for your family's holiday destination and sharing it with us here. It is with pleasure to read that you and your family has a wonderful 2 weeks stay with us. We do hope to have another opportunity to welcome you again soon. With Best Regards, Evangeline A.

Hi... We had a nice stay in bandara hotel koh samui. We stayed their for 4nights in pool villa. Check-in staff Mr stefan was very helpful,while waiting for room we were offered drinks,they have changing and relaxing area while waiting you for room to be ready. Manager Mr lance assisted us about places to explore and things to do in samui. Hotel comments - Our room was spacious and washroom was neat, bedding was clean, pool was enough for two people. amenities provided are useful and good quality. Room was hygienic. Lot of activities in hotel premises, candle light dinner,barbecue night,dinner by beach,child activities. Room service was nice and at restaurants food is tasty. Hotel breakfast was delicious,everyday different variety. Staff is very polite, happy and approachable. Things to improve, In room they should keep charging point close to bed and multi adopter. Shoe bag kept at closet was chargeable 100bath and it was not mention anywhere until we checkout.

Awesome stay at Bandara Resort & Spa”
We had an AH-MAZING stay at Bandara. We had a beautiful (possibly upgraded??) spacious room overlooking the pool. The buffet breakfast was out of this world. Great location, only a short walk up the beach to Fisherman's village for shopping, massages, and dinner each night. Staff were very friendly and helpful with booking activities. The pools were lovely, and cocktail hour was great. Only negative was the restaurant was very expensive, especially considering all of the (extremely affordable) options down the beach at Fisherman's Village. 100% would stay here again.
Dear Walter, Thank you for choosing Bandara Resort & Spa Samui for your holiday destination. We are delighted that you had an amazing stay with us and we make a wonderful impact and I am thrilled to hear that your stay was up to your expectations. Thank you once again for staying with us at Bandara Resort & Spa, Samui. I hope you will continue to consider Bandara for your holidays and we would surely wait for your next visit.

Group travel fun”
My friends and I stayed in this resort for 3 nights. We enjoyed our stay. Staff are very friendly and attention to details. Breakfasts were excellent, they change menu daily! Loved their swimming pool and direct beach access. It was very relaxing lying on the beach chair that the resort provided to sunbath. We had a couple in our group, they were there to celebrate their second wedding anniversary, their room was nicely decorated which we were all very impressed. The only downside was my room had bad smell in our toilet although it looks clean to me and our tap has no cold water. Also, my room and our friends room next to us can smell cigarette all the time, which we believe it was coming thru the air conditioning system. We complained to the staff, but they can't do anything about these, all they did was provide us more essential oil to burn to cover the smell.
Dear Yuen, Thank you once again for making Bandara Resort & Spa, Samui your preferred choice. On behalf of the entire team, we look forward to welcoming you back and to deliver another pure Bandara Asian experience. With Best Regards, Evangeline A. Raquel Events Manager
Hubby & I stayed here with 4 other couples, all aged in our late 40s, early 50s and had a wonderful experience. We had originally booked a standard type of room for 3 nights through Agoda but on arrival were offered a discounted upgrade to a magnificent villa with private pool, indoor & outdoor bathroom complete with sunken tiled bath, private cabana & sitting area. Loads of space inside, comfy bed & pillows along with delightful touches such as fresh flower bed decorations each day & a sweet anniversary gift & handwritten note from our pool boy Patt. This villa has now set the bar by which we will compare future accommodations. The Beach Bar was our favourite of the 2 & we ate at the restaurant one night for a buffet, possibly the only disappointment of our stay. Due to having our own private pool, we didn't use either of the 2 main pools but did swim in the clean, warm ocean several times. Nothing was too much for all the staff, especially the gorgeous Queen who met us on arrival & checked us in with efficiency & fun! The included breakfast buffet each day was delicious & plentiful. We would return if the opportunity presents & recommend it to all ages & holiday styles.
Nice hotel close to the beach”
Hotel is conveniently located on Bhoput beach and has all the facilities to expect when booking a hotel of this standard. Fisherman"s Village and plenty of good restaurants are located just a short walk from the hotel. However, the hotel itself is rather large and we were staying there mainly due to its proximity to the airport. If you fancy staying in a smaller Boutique Style Hotel this hotel may therefore seem a bit too large. All in all, still worth a stay if you are in the area anyway.
friendly staff with awesome service”
The resort staff is friendly and all the service are awesome. The best things is the beachside BBQ Buffet, you can enjoy the romantic view and those seafood under the sky. It a good for couple to have a relaxing dinner.
Lovely stay right on the beach”
We had a great stay. The resort is located in the family side of Koh Samui, in a quiet environment and almost directly on the beach. There are several lovely swimming pool in the resort, suitable for children as well as adult, some with a direct view on the sea. The beach is very near and offers a lot of sunbeds. There is a bar directly near the pools and beach, and a beach restaurant. The hotel features some activities, like a beach BBQ dinner and a Thai village dinner, both nice. The fishermen's village is also very near with lots of restaurants. The surroundings in the resort are lovely and gardens are well maintained. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is generous and has a lot of variety. We have chosen a villa, which offers a nice value for money. It features a private pool (about 4 square meters) and a private sundeck in a little garden, as well has a funny outside bathtub and shower. The room itself is huge, and the all villa gives a great feeling of privacy. Very nice for a couple. The only downside is that the wifi is not so easy to catch as the villas are located on the sides of the resort. But it works very well around the pools and even on the beach.
A romantic getaway”
Researched extensively on Agoda and found Bandara Resort to have the best overall reviews. Not letdown at all by the rave reviews. Check in was pleasant, comfortable and efficient. The receptionist personally walked us to our pool villa. The villa was as good as it looked in the photos. Great design and privacy. The only problem was low water pressure, it being a single storey stand alone building. The grounds was very well designed & up-kept. The swimming pools were varied in design with plenty of room for everybody. The staff were very well mannered with a pleasant Sawadeeka for everyone. Breakfast was about the best we had come across, dinner was quite good too and not too exorbitant. Bo Phut Walking street was just a 5 minutes stroll along the beach. There you can find various types of restaurants and bars. Right across the street, you can conveniently find Family Mart & cheap massage joints.
the hotel I like to stay every year ”
we have three room and 3 nights to stay there , happend to my husband felt sick ,all of the stuff in Bandara are so friendly and helpful to care of him.while my kids also enjoy the swimming pool and garden there ,we aslo enjoy the dinner in this hotel ! with nice beach as well!!! when we leave we ask for to be a member for Bandara ,we hope to stay Bandara in any city in the world !
Nicely decorated, pretty grounds”
rooms clean and nice. great spa, usual hotel prices. the hotel is in the middle of a cove with lots of other small hotels so it's not isolated but it isn't loud. the beach is narrow but you can take a long stroll, and at night you can walk down to other restaurants. the road in front of the hotel is fairly busy so you can find snacks and cheaper massages, but the hotel area itself, extending about 100 m to the beach is peace and quiet. good wifi. no hotel transport for solo travelers.
Great hotel on a great beach”
we had a room that overlooked the big pool. very well maintained gardens and rooms. really enjoyed the buffet breakfasts in the morning, and the fact it only took 10 mins to walk to fisherman's village!
