        A cozy resort with a very nice bedroom & outdoor bathroom. Had a pleasant time here with my husband and 1 yr old child. The only downfall is that the sand on the beach is full of tiny rocks & shells otherwise it would have been perfect!

        The complex was well laid out, with a nice pool and beach seating areas. The restaurant served excellent meals- in my opinion, the food quality was the best on Ko Samet Island.

        Nice and clean beach & room”

        Really loved the room, which wasn't huge but still comfortable. Pool was useless. They should replace the surrounding blanks because it looks old and cheap. Luckily beach was right next to it and spent time there instead of the pool. Good food and really nice staff. Recommended calm getaway for couples!

        A great place to come back”

        Far away from the hustle bustle Bangkok and perfect location on the other side of the beach, away from the party. Though the party area was harmless with majority of families only. This is the second time in my 4 years of visit and nothing as such changed. A perfect spot to eat, drink and chill at beach. We took a local scooter and drove around to the remote locations which was quite scenic and adventurous. Will definitely come back and stay here.

        The resort is in a great location at the very beginning of the island of Koh Samed. Beautiful beach location, clean sand, nice villas, good food, friendly and attentive staff. The resort is quiet and good for rejuvenation, yet has plenty of activities and resources to have fun. I hope to come back soon!

        clean beach, beach volleyball

        The hotel is located at the end of the concrete road, you can rent a motorcycle or ATV from the port to get there. The road's condition isn't as bad as on the other side like all the way to Prao beach. The hotel has a lovely setting like individual houses, roofless bathroom, 24/7 swimming pool, spa, beach volleyball and private beach. The only downside is the hotel is quite far from all the restaurants.

        Beautiful resort on the white sand beach”

        Cosy and quit peaceful place near

        We had a great stay at this place. its located on a white sand beach, one of the most beautiful ones of the island. We stayed here for new year. The hotel staff arranged a full entertainment program during new years eve, with local thai dance and a fire show and fire works. The staff is very friendly. The managers are walking around all day, the are very help full, and pay a load of attention to the customers. The rooms are nice villa's with a private patio. All located near to the beach. The food in the restaurant is good and reasonable priced. We rented a motorbike for a day and the city centre of the island is just 5 min ride away from the hotel. Definately recommend this hotel!

        Great place but shitty service! Avoid!”

        Location, amenities and rooms are one thing but service helps complete your holiday. The staff lack enthusiasm and service mind! They don’t smile, like they don’t want to be here. Upon my arrival, I overheard the staff complained about more customers checking in which is bizarre! Our last day, a female staff tried to rush us out the room before checking out time! She had an audacity to knock on our door and was giving us a look when we left the room! I would suggest hotel management to look into hiring/ training staff! Until then they are cheaper, nicer and better service resorts down the road. Avoid at all costs if you want to have a pleasant getaway!

        Great place located at one end of the island. It was on the opposite direction of all the party scene, so we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. Room was excellent. The water was tranquil and swimmable. Staff is nice and accomodative. Jahara went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. A large part of our amazing experience was definitely due to the resort staff. We'd highly recommend the resort to anyone who's looking for a relaxing weekend away from Bangkok.

        We have stayed at Mooban many times over the years, dating back to 2005. We saw evidence of some renovation on this trip and better food options at the restaurant. It is a quiet place on Samet and we enjoyed our trip here, once again, despite having basically no waterview from a "waterview bungalow".

        Great location and very relaxing.”

        The best things - Lovely room - very clean with large shower and comfy bed. It was very conveniently located seconds from the restaurant, pool and beach. We had one evening meal and one lunch at the resort - both were excellent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We hired motorcycles and found it very easy to get around the island. The beach was very quiet and clean. A few negatives (but not enough to spoil our holiday - overall we had a great time and would recommend the resort to others). The area around the pool was a bit tired - could do with some new sunbeds. The pool bar seemed to be unstaffed much of the time and did not look very inviting when a staff member was there. Although the food was excellent, the restaurant was rather stark and there was no bar to sit and relax in.
