Best breakfast buffet ever ”
Everything was amazing , the staff were friendly and very helpful . Also super professional , exactly what one would expect from a 5 star resort . If you want to travel the island , suggest renting a bike or car . The cab or transfer fee's can add up quick . 400b for a cab 500b for their own transport . The one draw back was the toilet had issues . Maybe from the mass amount of rain . It wouldn't flush properly . I'm sure they have fixed the problem . Very responsive to any issue you may have . Enjoy
Good stay fell like home and didn't want leave”
Such a very good warmly welcome from the staff. Esspecailly chef here. He alwayswalking around in the breakfast room to take care of the guest himself. Staff give me a very good information for staying at samui. Excellent!
A smashing hotel with outstanding staff”
We spent a total of 9 nights at the Marriott Renaissance Samui. Khun Nong, the reservation supervisor, assisted us via email with some questions and queries we had prior to our arrival. She was always quick, efficient and very helpful. Upon check-in we were greeted by the reception staff and very well taken care of. The first impression did not leave any room for doubts, if we had booked the right hotel for our holiday. We spent the first couple of days exploring the premises and meeting the staff, lazing around the pool and beach areas. Housekeeping had done an amazing job secretly decorating our room for my partners bday. They had blown up all balloons (30 in total, I felt somewhat sorry for the housekeeping team) and hung them nicely all over the room, spread all the other decorations throughout the room. That surprise was followed by a smashing birthday dinner at the beach front (it was the beach BBQ evening). A table in the first row had been reserved for us and to our surprise after the meal, the waiters and waitresses gathered and surprised us with a birthday cake and sang happy birthday. Khun Woody is a real character and made us laugh a lot during the dinner. These kind of characters really make a difference and stick in people´s memories. Another outstanding staff member I would like to point out is Ken. He was always around when needed. He is a total pro at what he does and went out of his way to assist us anytime, anywhere in any which way. He was always available, always present and always working hard. Simply a great chap you feel you can approach at any time with any questions or queries. We had had a look at the pool villas just after checking in and then decided, after 4 nights in the deluxe rooms, to upgrade to the aforementioned. We were very impressed we were with the villa. Spacious, private and designed in a lovely contemporary Thai style.
Everything great, nice food, friendly stuffs ”
I stayed there for 4 days in Samui, and overall it's a pleasure stay. We get up late and have buffet breakfast in banana leaf restaurant which includes variety of foods. And we rent a car from the hotel, though a little bit expensive it's really safe and simple. We drive to chaweng everyday cuz the location of Renaissance is poor which is the only bad thing I can memorize. I can still remember that the first day the resort hold a cocktail and BBQ party beachfront and we happily attend it. The last day we order a shuttle to the airport cost 1000B which is not too expensive. The stuff can speak good english and there's even a Chinese intern. Our villa No.123 and No.124 smell great like lemongrass and the stuffs all friendly with bright smile.
Great stay at the Renaissance. I really enjoyed my stay. Besides the room being nice and clean the bed was really comfortable. Also, the big pool by the beach was really awesome. We ordered a lot of food in-room and by the beach, and the food was always delicious. Would definitely come back if I was at Samui again.
Brilliant villa escape”
Loved my stay at the villa at Renaissance Koh Samui! The villas are amazing, beautiful, spacious, quiet and private, a lovely little pool to cool off in, and many pleasant little features. The location is a bit out of the way off of Lamai beach, but close enough that it's just a couple minutes to get down to other restaurants, etc. It's not the cheapest option, but it's a lovely escape in the villas!
Treat yourself to Renaissance Villa life!”
Loved my stay in the Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa - I booked a villa, which was not inexpensive but was worth every penny - beautiful spacious villa with many amenities, friendly and helpful staff, a private pool for cooling off, and a very peaceful atmosphere, night or day. Strongly recommended!
Best Beach Vacation”
We stayed in this hotel for 5 days The staff are friendly and service is good, especially they initiated a special birthday cake for my husband during breakfast. I cannot complain and I had no problems. The rooms are cleaned everyday! The pool is lovely and was barely anyone else there. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a peaceful break.
This hotel is very well maintained compared with many of the others in Sa Mui. I suppose it helps that it belopngs to the bigger Marriot chain. Prices are reasonable compared with other large developments. The pool is a fun place to be and it has the buzz due to the higher take-up amongst tourists. yet, it is not that overcrowded. The breakfast is a treat. What we get is quality - eg. the fruit juices are squeezed on the spot and the variety is plentiful. It is also a fruits galore with local fruits in addition to the usual fare . Its quality
Oasis in Samui”
Stayed at the Samui renaissance resort over valentines weekend ... it was the perfect gettaway. Was greated by the friendly staff at the resort whom escorted us to our more than ample room. Found everything there more than satisfactory. We ate at all the restaurants there and enjoyed the breakfast so much 5* all the way

FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE”
It was out first time in Koh Samui and we are very happy that we chose to stay at the Renaissance! It was a fabulous experience. The room was gorgeous and the staff was outstanding! Especially, Max (Banana Leaf Restaurant staff) and Honey (Front desk staff) were exceptionally kind and helpful. Whoever is responsible for the staff training should be acknowledged for the wonderful job and rewarded for such a great job. We will surely be back again and encourage our friends to choose Renaissance as well.
Fantastic boutique hotel! ”
We stayed here for the first 4 nights of our honeymoon and loved it! We got champagne and treats on arrival (a gorgeous added touch!). The staff was the highlight, so lovely and kind assisting with anything we needed. The breakfast was also fantastic, literally anything and everything you could want or need. It is close to Lamai Beach, definitely a nicer side to the island than busy Chaweng. Loved it here - highlight reccomend.
Good to stay here for long holiday”
We stayed 2 nights here in Villa with private pool. Everything was so perfect, staffs were so kind, breakfast was so many options, the room was bigger than expected, the pool which is next to the private beach. Would come back again for sure.
Amazing Villa Stay”
Stayed in a pool villa with my family (with 2 children) for 3 nights. I am a platinum member of Marriott Rewards, and I was given an additional roll-away bed with no additional cost, welcome ice-creams during check-in, welcome fruits and cookies in the room and complimentary wifi. Hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful. Location of the resort was a little hidden, access from main road could be missed easily if you come from Chaweng direction. We followed a small truck road from main road and passed by some local residential houses before arriving at the resort. They provide free shuttle bus service to Chaweng and Central Festival shopping mall. But for convenience, I rented a car to enable more freedom in time management. The spa pool in the villa was great for bonding moments with my wife and kids in the afternoon. The sofa in the room was good to be converted as another bed for a child, so the villa was simply perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. We were also briefed by a friendly hotel staff about the villa and the resort upon arrival at our villa. Wifi speed was good, but satelite TV channels were limited. Breakfast was good. There were 2 huge pools @ the resort, recommended to use the beach facing pool as the sea view was fantastic. The other pool was the long lap pool with the length of olympic swimming pool but it was located far from villas and quieter. The resort has its private beach. However, the beach did not meet my expectation, the sea water level at that area was too low for a swim. It feels like being always at low tide.
This place is 'heaven' staff are so attentive, friendly and can't do enough for you. The executive chef was helping out daily, clearing plates, chatting to customers etc Pool staff were the best, they have complimentary suncream out and we're always smiling. Would recommend this gem to everyone. Such a relaxing place with such friendly staff and super pool, beach and food! Worth a visit
Great service and bfast”
Had a great stay here at renaissance mostly because of the great service provided here by the staff and the sumptuous breakfast which came with your choice of fresh fruit juice every morning. Ginger, orange, apple, whatever you request they have it. And totally free with breakfast. private beach which was clear. clearer then the other hotel I stayed in. Must be due to a different part of samui. Hotel bed was super comfy too! overall, my husband and I were pretty pleased with our stay here!
Excellent facilities but beach not swimmable”

A small gem on the SE coast”
It was wonderful and the staff was extremely knowledgeable. Honey and Romee was always available and friendly at the front desk to answer any questions and provide any booking support for car rentals or activities. The restaurant staff was also very helpful and kind. I can't say enough great things about this resort.
