Show reviews that mention
We booked the largest apartment & were pleasantly surprised by how clean & new it was. Located at the zoo & you can get half price entry via the resort reception. Fantastic location if you are looking to be away from Chewang & it's right on the beach. Some good resorts just up the beach to hang at as not much going on at this place. We could see the tigers form our room & they have other animals in the grounds.. Will go back again
Nice Zoo by the Sea”
This hotel is a little far from other tourist spots. You can find some restaurants if you're willing to do some walking. There is a restaurant right across from the hotel entrance. A little pricey, but pretty good.
AWESOME PLACE.....A MUST RECOMENDED PLACE”
Oh my god......I get goose bumps when I remember the days spent in the resort. The villa is super awesome and breakfast location seems like a heaven. Lush green views in front of Beach taking a coffee with scrummbled eggs is just Woooow......... The most important thing there are 3 pools so whenever u want u can jus dive into it and relax yourself. I would like to visit again and again.....
Very nice Hotel”
The hotel was in a lovely quiet spot, right on the beach on the flat. We had free shuttle up the hill to visit family. The staff were all very friendly. First room was a bit disappointing but we had no problem changing, you could see that most of the rooms had been updated. One of the 3 pools was in front of our room which was a delight. There was a bit of weather/rain damage to the concrete paths etc but this was minor. For the low price we paid I would recommend staying in this hotel, don't expect top deluxe but do expect clean and modern rooms (most of them) but no hairdryer.
A very nice resort”
It's a very nice resort. Very friendly Staff. Everything is really good to reach from the hotel and the free shuttle to lamai works very well. I can online recommend the resort and would certainly book it again.
rude staff, dirty and muddy water, dirty swimming pool”
the receptionist are not friendly, give very bad service to us..not explain properly regarding the transport to lamai. the hotel surrounding area abandon. sleep like a nightmare. in midnight heard something scary. overall very poor services.
Good beach hotel”
The restaurant with beach view very nice especially in the morning you enjoy your breakfast, you can view the nice koh samui ocean. The swimming pool with beach view also good, during swimming, you can view the nice beach and ocean. The hotel environment is quite clean, is good for long stay & let yourself relax in the beach.
The Ocean Resort Samui”
Located in a remote cornor of Lamai beach, about 15min drive to the Lamai center. They have free shutter to the Lamai beach several times a day. Compared to Lamai center, this hotel is quiet and a good place for family visitors. You can see the beatiful beach from your room window. The beach is clean in which small fish can be seen. But no water sport like Jet-skiing in this beach. They have a good resterant with perfect views, however not too many dishes can be chosen. Nice staff, nice sleep, will stay there again.
This hotel is located just beside the zoo. It is ideal if you have a car and a family. If you don't have a car, it might be around 10km from Lamai, the closest place with action. The swimming pool is nice but the beach isn't. Rooms are clean and fine for the price. Very good value.
Good location ”
Room is spacious but aged and all the room facility is only 3star quality with average maintenance. Breakfast at beach front restaurant with good ambience but quality of breakfast not valuable. Hotel reception is well hospitality, is the same area for tiger zoo and aquarium, hotel guest get 50% discount for entrance fee that's worth staying here.
Best value for money on Samui”
The Samui Orchard Resort was our highlight of Samui. My girlfriend and I spent a few hours travelling down the east coast looking for good accommodation at a cheap price. We ended up booking three nights in a bungalow. Reception were nice upon our arrival, and throughout the rest of our stay. Shuttles ran every couple hours to Lamai Central, pick ups and drop offs, which can in very useful when trying to do something with your time in Samui. The Samui Orchard Resort is located directly next to the tiger zoo/aquarium. In addition to this, by staying at the Samui Orchard Resort, you receive half price tickets. The tiger zoo is worth seeing. All of the animals were caged up outside of our bungalow, with tropical birds, cute otters and monkeys. They are all well trained and you can buy food from the front to feed them with. Beautiful resort, three stunning swimming pools, directly on the beach, with kite boarding lessons if you're feeling adventurous (quite expensive). Nice clean rooms, friendly staff.
Peaceful with friendly staff and a nice long beach”
We have stayed here in excess of 10 times either as a group or as a couple. The hotel resort is linked with the Tiger Zoo and there are many animals etc to see but the resort is very peaceful and welcoming with friendly staff. The rooms are basic but always clean aswell as the resort with a lovely long beach which is cleaned regular. Ideal place if you enjoy kite boarding as this beach is the one for this pastime, hence no noise from speed boats etc to spoil the peace. With free shuttle to and from Lamai at regular intervals if you want to shop or party.
A great get-away and relax location.”
Everything at this resort was just what we required to have a relaxing holiday. The area is very peaceful and there isn't any noise pollution from rowdy nightlife. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centers but there is easy access them through the use of the resort's shuttle bus service. The breakfast was delicious. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will certainly return to stay here again, very soon.
Most Beautiful Beach, Pool Beach Front Room”
This hotel has the most beautiful big and very long beach, Room with private Pool and beach front, Delicious Food Reasonable Price Front Beach Restaurant, Next to Aquarium and Tiger Zoo, Clean, Good Service, Big 2 Swimming Pools, Reasonable Price, Delicious and adequate Breakfast. The front lady at the hotel is very kind. She upgraded my room from Pool Villa near beach to front pool beach view villa. So I have a room with pool infront of the room and big swimming pool at the right side of the room and less than 1 minutes walk to the beach or restaurant.
Superb location but non-existent service.”
Chose this location right on the beach, as the area was already well known to me. What surprised me, was the total indifference of the staff there, almost bordering on disdain and awkwardness. Little or no English. They offered no help of any sort. No information or recommendations, no offers of booking any recreation or tours. You are left totally to your own devices. There are no facilities whatever, unless you choose to go wind surfing after 10 am ! Nowhere near any shops or activities. Without a car or motorbike, you would be stranded. Restaurant almost primitive and completely inadequate. They rely on location only to survive, otherwise no-one would elect to stay there.
Friendly hotel with 3 pools and Wifi”
really enjoyed this hotel - good basic rooms, with constant electricity and wi-fi throughout the resort area. good breakfasts and snacks in the beach-front dining area. many local resorts appeared to be shut, but this one was working well, with a lot of guests, nearly all adults and not many children.
nice stay with aqua & tiger zoo”
I enjoyed very much staying this hotel as it's exactly what I am looking for a relaxing holiday.It 's quiet, decent beach impressed me when I laid under hut and read my favorite book. I do feel relaxed and peace. Surely I'll come again when I wanna be refreshed and escape from busy city lives. However, it would be perfect if I can share photos of the beautiful scenes with friends by the Internet.
Getting better by the year!”
We've been coming in this hotel for the past five years and every year I see they have improved something. This year the rooms have been upgraded and they did a good job. If you have children who are crazy about animals then this is the place for you. Tigers, otters, sealions, monkeys and lots of birds are kept at the resort.
Private pool villas are very nice.”
Super great place to be if you have a rental scooter or car to get around with... less than 15 minutes on a scooter to busy nightlife area.
Animals in tiny cages”
The most disturbing aspect of our stay was the animals kept in tiny cages. We only stayed one night because of this. Drugged up tigers are kept in small cages that were flooded due to the torrential rainfall. The tigers only had a small area were they were not lying in a pool of water. Other animals kept in cages included birds, monkeys and otters. The otters were kept in a cage no bigger than 1.5mx1.5m. The animals all looked absolutely depressed and soulless. This is a cruel practice and should not be supported as some sort of tourist gimmick. If it is necessary to keep animals in a cage then at the very least it should be of an adequate size with the animals properly cared for. We found the conditions that these animals were living absolutely unacceptable.
