Punnpreeda Beach Resort
Fit the bill”
We were looking for a place to stay which was close to the pier. We were catching the speedboat over to Koh Pha-ngan the next morning. The staff were very helpful & friendly and the rooms were clean & tidy. Breakfast was good too with a nice view of the beach. There is a pharmacy over the road, if needed & a 7Eleven. If staying longer than one night, we would have hired a car to go that bit further for some nice restaurants & shops.
The most enjoyable bit while my stay would be daily communication with the staffs, they are extremely friendly and really helpful! The room is clean and enough for solo or couple stay! A 5 star for this resort!
Last minute booking that turned out great after I hit a snag with some travel arrangements. The facilities are very nice, just be aware they seem tailored to couples. The staff was very helpful, and I loved the convenient location to the beach and airport
Don’t waste your money! ”
Arrived to a room that was as hot as a sauna and the air-con took at least 30 minutes to get the room to even a bareable temperature, (of course with a keycard that meant you couldn’t leave the air-con on at all when out of the room). Alongside that the toilet was leaking water all over the floor and the bed sheets had holes in them (never mind the awful damp smell of them when we got into bed that night!). The pool only has 2 sun loungers in the sun until well into the mid-afternoon, and over looks the ferry/speedboat piers (can not be called a beach resort!) - very unrelaxing. The location in general is not good - not being walking distance to any of the main restaurant/bar areas (and nothing really in the local vicinity either). We moved rooms after the first night (not much better), and only stayed three nights in total of our five night reservation despite not even a response from management (after multiple emails) on any sort of refund. Don’t waste your time and money!
Very nice hotel close to the airport ”
Hôtel clean with nice rooms and very comfy beds nice breakfast with sea views and the employees are friendly and it's located just next to the boat pier express wich is very convenient to travel to pangang. I totally recommend this hotel! Great value for money!
The manager Ryan went above and beyond his call of duty to help us manage and change am error in our arrival date. In addition he put us in a nice bungalow. All the first floor rooms are detached bungalow that are spacious , clean, nicely decorated. Since there are no common wLls in the bungalows it is peaceful and quite. Breakfast was basic but good. Fresh,fruits, juices, salads, muili, yogurt, cereals, and eggs seved in a variety of ways. The view ; from the pool is nice -right on the beach. The staff here are what make this. Place stand apart. The manager Ryan is a one of a kind hospitality employee who makes sure a guest is taken care of. Safe travels.
"Great Value and”
We stayed in this resort for 3 days 2 nights, breakfast is simple and considere good, we do enjoy our breakfast with windy morning breeze by the beach. The bath room is clean and quite spacious except there is unpleasent smell when having shower, may be the drainage is not good, the pipe water not clean , and smelly not suitable to drink.
Deluxe rooms are not deluxe!”
We booked a deluxe room, and looked at three when we arrived and chose one of them. They were all dark and musty smelling. Really affected my wife's allergies. After the first night I talked with Ryan and we were moved to a Villa. Still a little dated, but the bed was good, nice high ceilings, and just a better feel to the room. Ryan and his staff are all great, can't say enough good about them, they are by far the best thing about this place!! The owners really need to spend some money and freshen up the rooms, put in new showers please!
This was my second trip in 2 months”
Perfect in everything , all our member were so happy to stay in this hotel. Hotel manager Ryan he can reconized me while I check in at the counter , and he also gave us advise where to go for sight seeing n which restaurant ti dine in. I definately will recomended Punnpreda to all my friends and family.
The best thing in the Punnpreeda Beach Resort is their wonderful staff. Unfortunately I had the flu during my stay in Samui. One of the staff sent me an international hospital by his car when I had very high fever. One female staff visited me in hospital once a day and helped me to buy what I needed because the doctor did not allow me to get out of my room for shopping. They also called the hospital once a day in order to ask how I was. When I left the hospital, the female staff came to the hospital and helped me again. Because I had to stay in hospital for two nights, I stayed at the Punnpreeda for my first two nights only. I should go to the Punnpreeda again in order to really enjoy the hotel, beach, pool and restaurant!!!!
The staff at the desk is simply extraordinary
The reception and staff was very friendly but the house keeping services were not up to mark .. ”
They didn’t change the bedsheets even after 3 days .. the electric kettle was not working properly .. the bath tub was not clean at all ..
Cosy hotel with outstanding personal. Stunning sunsets ”
Very nice amenities, even if the pool and the restaurant are very small. Very helpful and friendly staff. Beautiful sunset view from the restaurant. The area is however quite boring and you need a car or a bike to go around. There are however couple of good restaurants in the neighbourhood. Taxi is very expensive The quality of the sea is not the best since the resort is situated between two piers. Los flying aircrafts are almost an attraction itself.
First Visit to Samui”
We enjoyed our stay here staff were very helpful and friendly and any minor problems were sorted immediately The only ongoing problem which applies to all the beachfront hotels is dogs wandering on the beach and doing what dogs do although our hotel staff went and cleared up the mess quickly it is still offputting when you are eating what is a good breakfast. I spoke to the manager who then liased with other beachfront hoteliers and as we left they were arranging a meeting with the local councillor to try and sort out this particular problem. I do hope so as we will be staying here again next year
It was a last minute booking to fill a gap between returning to Koh Samui or remaining on Koh Tao for an extra couple of days, we chose to return to Samui and wanted to try someplace other than Lamai from our previous week. We chose Bo Phut for closer proximity to the airport. The Bo Phut area is certainly off the tourist trail, but after almost three weeks of travel we wanted to just stay near the hotel for rest and relaxation. So if you think the area is covered by tee shirt shops and souvenir stores, you chose the wrong area. We were only there for two nights and found someplace to have dinner difficult, we found a delicious restaurant nearby, and ate there both nights, neither disappointed. The hotel room was a 10 out of 10, service and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious, king sized bed fantastically comfortable, bathroom very modern, spacious and clean. We even asked for a late checkout as our flight was later in the afternoon, they gave us an extra hour at no charge and did it with a smile on their face. Fantastic two days, thank you Punnpreeda and all your staff. Of the six hotels we have stayed at, this one was by far our greatest experience in Thailand. Might I suggest, if like us, you are travelling to Bangkok after reading my Punnpreeda review. DO NOT stay at the WATANA Hotel. Where the Punnpreeda is a 10, Watana is a 1. I can't wait to write my review on this dump when we leave Bangkok!
2 week stay, loved it!”
We had a great time! The resort is in a quiet part of Samui, but there's great food available at the hotel, as well as easy walking distance. We hired a scooter from Punnpreeda, which was a great way to get around the island cheaply, and not stress about being ripped off from dodgy hire places. The pool area is really lovely to relax and get some sun. Also to have some drinks and a lovely ocean view. The green pool tiles were slightly off putting in the beginning, as I'm used to pools being blue, and green associated with being dirty, however it does actually look good with the gardens of the resort, and the pool was cleaned and maintained every day. As were the rest of the grounds. And once again the staff were amazing, a few of them had very good English, including the managers and some of the bar staff, so communication was easy, and they had great knowledge to help you out with anything you need. One tip though, pay as you go at the restaurant/bar to avoid extra service charges that can be a nasty surprise at the end of your trip.
Liked the resort.very quiet and good staff”
our stay here was very nice. But it's little far from the happening area. We had problems to find McDonald's and all other restaurants here in bangrak but if we have stayed in chaweng we could easily find decent restaurants . The area is very quiet and peaceful. perfect for honeymoon. But the pier is so close and it's the worst part of the resort.
Great location right on beach”
Very good. Location was perfect for our needs. Far enough away from the busy Chaweng area to ensure peace and calm. But only 15min away if you want to enjoy the nightlife. Scooter rental & tour organising place directly opposite hotel which was very convenient. Plenty of restaurants, food stalls and 7/11s within walking distance. Beach small, but adequate. Staff very helpful & friendly. Only gripe was the shower pressure, but I suspect that is a common Thailand problem. Would stay here again.
Bring mosquito repellent”
All is fine until you realize that there is a poorly planned water feature to the hotel landscape- an artificial water pond, throughout the walkways. I found it very uncomfortable and noticed that they use pesticides from a can to remedy the problem (while you are away). I am not one to sleep on a pillow coated with pesticide aerosol, but C'est la vie!
Convenient and Affordable”
The staffs were the highlight of the hotel. It is on a nice beach in BangRak, but it is too close to the piers with big and small boats. Breakfast was efficient, but nothing special. Compare to the price and the service/room received, it was definitely a great deal.
