              Lovely new hotel - huge rooms and wonderful staff.”

              Newly opened, quiet and perfect for families.

              we stayed at this hotel after a long flight from the uk and a connecting flight to samui. we booked here for one night as we were getting the ferry from mae nam to thongsala the next day and after a 16 hour trip we couldn't believe our luck when we arrived. the rooms were huge, spotlessly clean and the mattress on the bed was so comfortable. the thais don't believe in expensive mattresses and i have experienced some shockers but i had the best nights sleep on this one. the staff were very helpful and even though the breakfast was basic (i have seen reviews for this hotel complaining about it) it comes with the price of the room and is the same as any other breakfast you will get for the same offer. mae nam is about 20 minutes drive from chaweng. it is where the main night life and shopping areas are but it is built up, busy and unattractive. mae nam however, has a lovely beach and even though this hotel is a 5 minute drive awayif you had children you would need to hire a car anyway. taxis are not particularly cheap so i would advise anyone to hire a moped or car when on samui anyway. the hotel has a lovely swimming pool too. i would therefore recommend this hotel as an excellent stop off point en route to koh phangan or an absolute bargain for what you get if you wanted somewhere quiet but not too far away from everything.

              we had a good time at grand hill residence. the room was spacious, clean, and the staff was friendly :) however, because the hotel was a bit far from the beach and from the main district, we had to rent a car to get around more freely ( day + gas). the hotel does provide free shuttle service to mae nam beach though.

              Rooms are spacious and bed is comfortable

              A Cosy mid size hotel with a lovely view if you want quiet getaway. I stayed in a large room with a living room, a kitchenette, the bathroom comes with jacuzzi bath too which is nice to soak in after a day out. Hotel provides free transport to maenam beach too which is just minutes away. Those with family and rented vehicle will find this hotel a very nice hotel to sty in as it offers value for money. It is a bit off the beaten track but Near enough to Fishing village and maenam places of interest. Staffs there are very obliging and friendly, especially the General Manager there, Jackson, who ensures I am well taken care of. I had quite a few problems with agoda booking from wrong checkout date to wrong room type, and their call centre was jo help at all. Agoda seems to be just interested in taking bookings and thereafter any problems you deal with the hotel. However, Jackson fixed all the problems for me... Thank you grand hill residence and all their staffs for a safe and comfortable stay.

              My boyfriend and I arrived at the Grand Hill Residence after booking 2 nights there the day before. We arrived to this gorgeous open plan reception that looked over the infinity pool. We were quickly told that we had been upgraded from our Deluxe Luxury Sea View room to the Junior Suite free of charge!! The suite had 2 x bathrooms, 2 x balconies, a front room, a kitchen and a bedroom and was stunning! We went down to the pool the next morning to find that we were the only people there - the place was so relaxing! The pool is gorgeous and overlooks thousands of palm trees with the sea in the close distance.The staff were very helpful and arranged travel for us in to the main town area. We ended up booking another night there as we could not leave it so soon! I would recommend this hotel to anybody - it is amazing!

              This hotel is a gem located on northern part of Koh Samui. If you prefer a hotel away from the hectic beach areas then this hotel meets your wishes. The rooms are big, suitable for a family with a few children. The hotel owner and his staff are very friendly and service minded doing their utmost to make you feel comfortable. Food in the restaurant is very good with a wide selection of both Thai and Western dishes, all reasonably priced. The view from the restaurant and swimming pool area over the bay is breathtaking. Although not directly located to rhe beach there is a free shuttle bus to the beach,however only three times a day. Motorbikes can be rented from the hotel reception. There are several car rental shops at close vicinity. It's worthwhile to shop around to get a good deal. The atmosphere in the hotel is very relaxed.

              Nice hotel but something missing”

              The view, the bike, the space

              On a 4 day stay in Samui we chose to stay in the hills for some peace and serenity and found the grand hill residence to offer that nicely. The staff were all very friendly, though there was only one who really spoke English, and she worked business hours only. The room was nice and spacious and everything nice, only... Something was missing. It feels as if the owner ran out of money before completing the place - there are no extra conveniences in the rooms and even though it wasn't off season yet, there is only a skeleton crew. As I said all staff were lovely, but also not quite sure what to do I think. In regards to staying in the hills, it was beautiful but remember you are away from all shops and cafes so if you're not prepared to ride a scooter (which you can hire a good little 4 speed Honda for 250B) you will need to take a taxi or get a transfer from the hotel which is expensive - they do also offer a free shuttle bus to maenam but it only goes 3 times a day with no night time service. I don't *not* recommend this place, it is very nice, but be prepared and you will have a great time.

              Damn good bargain!”

              If you want a place by the beach, this isn't it. This is a place on a 'grand hill' which is near and far enough from the beach and is not touristy at all. It's secluded and well taken cared. The room is huge and very very clean. The staff is amazing and their simple breakfast was scrumptious. Just hire a bike from the hotel and roam around all over Samui. Once you're done doing that, come back to this quiet quaint hotel and have a good night's sleep before waking up and doing it all over again. I cannot praise how good the staff are. They really do push this hotel to a higher level. With what I paid for the room, this really was a damn good bargain.

              very nice hotel i would defenitely recommend it to a friend. the only downside is the distance to the beach but it is no problem to rent a motorbike (ask at the reception it was about baht). i first booked only two nights because i was not sure wether i want to stay that far away from the beach. after arriving and the first night i decided to prolong my stay. i spend all nights in samui with grand hill and was highly satisfied. some improvements in terms of breakfast would be great however.

              We did enjoy of our stay there. Staff is amazing friendly. We had 2 bedrooms and 3 washrooms, big terrace with a great view. It's located not on the real high hill, so the small motorbike will be just fine to drive there. It's about 5-10 min drive to Mae Nam Lomparayah pier. And the biggest benefit - no bugs. There were quite a few, but it didn't bother us.

              We stayed here at the end of August 2012. The hotel is up in the hills of Ko Samui so you are a good walk away from shops and restaurants. Although the hotel is of a very high standard and really good value for the price we paid (35 aud pn). The room, bed, jacuzzi bath and furnishings are of a really high standard. The view from the pool is amazing looking over the north shore of Ko Samui. The spa and gym area in the basement was due to be open in Oct 2011 but was still a building site when we were there. The restaurant is decent enough and good value for money. Friendly staff but the hotel felt a bit deserted while we were there.

              Large comfortable new rooms , distant. ”

              Huge comfortable suite but need own transport if you choose it

              really big spacious modern family suite with 2 bedroom (over 200 m2) perfect for family who needs separate bedroom for children. property is about 1 year old, so everything is close to new. kitchen has large fridge, electric cooktop , microwave, kettle and cups. but not set up with everything you need, had to buy a pan to cook few things. we managed to borrow cutlery and plates from the kitchen. location is not the best, so really need a car to get here or at least a motorbike. i don't think can find similar quality apartment for that price in koh samui. breakfast is very average, but we preferred to buy our own fresh fruit and the rest for breakfast. staff performance can vary, kind of random. some days they forgot to clean our rooms or leave towels. not good for those who come to the island to party, far away from all the action. swimming pool is ok, but not much else is in a hotel, it is really like serviced apartment with breakfast. surroundings are not very nice, no garden but nice views from higher floors. overall, if you don't mind to hire a car, and like to enjoy a large apartment to stay in, this a good place for you.

              Nice hotel for peace & quiet.”

              Spacious rooms.

              If you're looking for a location away from the bustling of Koh Samui, this would be the best choice. Would recommend renting motorbike for better means of transportation (via hotel @ per day) as the hotel is pretty far off the main street if travelling by foot. Alternatively pricing of bike rental are a little cheaper outside (approx. THB200-THB250) but we didn't want to go through so much hassle and had the hotel staff handle them for us. Rooms are extremely spacious and hotel staff were really helpful during our stay. Pool is clean and relaxing, overlooking the panoramic view of Mea Nam. Breakfast is light but we were more for the morning breeze whilst having our coffee. We would return to this hotel again for our Rest & Relax holiday plans. Thank you.

              Amazing hotel but out in the sticks”

              The pool, the rooms and the spa

              Our stay at grand hill residence was okay. We didn't look at the location when booking and didn't realise it was a little way up a mountain so you have to get the hotel to drive you everywhere for a price (quite expensive) With it being out in the middle of knowhere it's great for people who want to get away from it all and just relax by a pool or use the spa etc. for us it was too quiet so we spent a lot on taxis going to the busier places. The hotel is worthy of the 4 star rating. Staff are good and facilities are good and brand new. Only stay here if you want to get away from the buzz of the towns.

              Massive room

              i and my boyfriend stayed at the hotel for only one night. we love it. it was beautiful, serene, massive room, very nice swimming pool had lovely staff and was a great value. keep in mind that it's a bit far from things, so you need to use a motorbike or car to get into town. technically you can walk, but it's 20 minutes to the closest beach,or a taxi ride. realizing we had to pay for renting a car increased the cost of stay, but i was still happy about the place. it was great after a day at the beach or a night in town, to get away up to the quiet hill where the resort is located. if you want new and clean with a pool, i didn't see anything comparable on the island. english breakfasts were decent but the thai dinners we had were wonderful!

              Pleasant stay with next views”

              Love the large two bedroom suite we stayed in, the views from the balcony were outstanding. All the staff were ever so helpful and were always smiling. The pool is a reasonable size. If you can hire a bike or car it may work out better as in Koh Samui they seem to have a monopoly on transport due to a lack or non existing public transport. This means they usually charge Baht 500 each time you want to any attraction areas and the same back. It would be good if the hotel can also provide free scheduled transport to Chengweng in addition to what they offer to the local beach. The breakfast was ok, iit did the job but not great. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and I would certainly go back again.
