Stunning resort, friendly yet professional staff.”
The villa was stunning, the view superb, the resort a world apart from others on Koh Samui. Breakfast buffet is vastly accommodating for all tastes with the most stunning sea views whilst eating your breakfast. We have been to a few six senses around the globe and Samui has out shined the rest. My only comment would be that our villa was not as private as we have had at other six senses resort, however, the management insist they will take measures to amend this problem and where very gracious that we shared this minor issue with them.. Overall 9/10 for sure. We will be back, especially since its only a 3 hour journey from our home in Hong Kong.
Wonderful vacation - the price is justified”
We (as a couple) list down all pros/cons as below; Pro - Good location with wonderful scenery / environment / decoration / so many trees - Superb staff; very friendly and helpful. Most of them can speak English fluently - Nice food; very healthy and organic + tasty. But the price is a bit high as normal for 5-6 stars hotel. - Superb experience with services we received. For example, we arrived the hotel 2 hours before check-in time. During the waiting, they provided us with a 15 mins free massage without any request by us. - (this is extra point) Six Senses Samui does not has any single-used plastic materials. Good job and thanks for being environmental friendly. Cons; - Before our trip, we saw some of prior comments suggesting that the accomodations are a bit old. This is quite true for some equipment such as bathtub. - As mentioned above, the food is healthy and organic. So, for junk-food lovers, you may have a rough time. overall 10/10
A Perfect 10!”
I spent seven nights/eight days at Six Senses Samui, and it was fantastic. Yes, it's expensive. But in so many ways, you get what you pay for. These folks have considered every detail. The place is beautifully designed. The main pool is gorgeous. The common spaces - arrival area, library, bar and dining areas, spa and workout space - are all interconnected by decks and ramps. There's not a protruding pipe that hasn't been screened, or a path that hasn't been carefully maintained. Everywhere you look, there's eye candy. There's a beautifully laid out deck and bar by the beach. And all the people working at Six Senses, from the pool attendants to the cleaning folks to the personal butlers, are outstanding. The rooms, too, are exceptional. They're roomy, with amazing views, and beyond comfortable beds. It's not a marble-and-glass kind of experience. The materials are relatively earthy. What makes it first class is the space, the layout, the people. It is barefoot elegance at its best.
Quality for a price.”
Six Senses Resorts offers an experience far from average, and the Samui Resort was no exception. We stayed in a Pool Villa Suite and it was great from the private pool to the vast facilities indoors, the colourful gecko included. Perfect privacy and a breathtaking view. Having a private "butler" was a nice concept, except for the fact that you shared him with other guests which most of the time meant that he kept you waiting. Breakfast in the Restaurant was an experience in abundance. You could get almost anything you wished for on the plate (or on the Planet!)! Perhaps the Resort should transfer some of that generosity when it comes to pricing other stuff for sale. Three times the "street-price" for a Singa Beer was an annoyance, not to speak of the Restaurant bill at the Sea Grill. I guess the price level is a part of the concept, making the guests feeling amongst "a chosen few". The personal courtesy shown by the Resort Management certainly made us feel something like that - which was not unpleasant at all. And I think it works - we will recommend the Resort to friends - but only to those that can afford it.
The Six Senses Samui hotel was outstanding: our villa was beautiful, great design, very functional with fantastic pool & seating areas. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and very well trained. The spa & massage was superb and the lessons in the morning (thai chi; yoga) provided an opportunity to start the day well balanced. The quality of the food was very high and we specially appreciated the variety of healthy (and delicious!) dishes & drinks. All in all a fantastic place!
Six Senses Samui is great because it's tucked away from the more built up, action-filled parts of the island and allows you to relax and feel like you're in your own private paradise. The staff is lovely, thai massages great. Dinner on the Rock is worth it more for the experience than for the food.
Most romantic honeymoon imaginable”
The staff at Six Senses Samui are absolutely wonderful, very attentive and helpful. The resort in itself is so beautiful - lush greenery, views of the bay from the restaurants and villas and just a very serene atmosphere. We were very very happy with our stay there!
Back to nature”
We had a wonderful stay at the six senses. Although it was over the song kran weekend and occupancy was in the high 80% it did not feel busy at all. Throughout the 3 nights stay we didn't even meet out neighbours! The pool villa had a "dipping" pool which we didn't expect but the main pool was breath taking. It over looked koh phangan and had the most spectacular view of the sunset. Breakfast was good especially the eggs Benedict. Dinner at on the rocks was also yum, some what in the creative side but taste was right. The outdoor shower made us feel like Tarzan and Jane!!! Fantastic The two hour massage at the spa with Khun Waen was super relaxing. The view from the room made me feel like I wasn't in Thailand. But to be honest my massage was so wonderful i didn't really care much about the surroundings. Highly recommended. was superb, extremely professional, thank you.
beautifuil hotel great food and staff ”
wow what a great hotel we stayed at some average hotels in Koh Samui then we decided to try six sense resort and were blown away with everything, I will be back again
I love everything about Six Senses Samui. A nice resort with breathtaking views, the staffs are so friendly and helpful, the room is big and clean. Definitely will come back again.
Really enjoyed staying at Six Senses Samui, and I highly recommend this hotel to others. We received a free upgrade to the pool villa also, fantastico!
Unique Eco-friendly Resort and Spa”
It's the wonderful way that they have put so much thought into everything, from the sustainable way they have built and run this beautiful eco-designed villas, complimentary all day ice-cream/cookie bars to the beach screening with pop-corn and a lovely mangrove boardwalk. Couple this with their attentive, friendly and resourceful staff that are empowered to make sure you have a great stay. Their philosophy of "SLOW LIFE" or Sustainable, Local, Organic and Wonderful, was apparent in everything, and Six Senses managed to redefine quality, authenticity, exclusivity and luxury in a sustainable, personal and fun way.
Stunning hotel with perfect service”
We stayed 3 days at Six Senses. The staff (and our butler) did everything to make our stay perfect. We even received a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine for our honeymoon. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. We were offered a late check-out without even asking for it. The villa was beautiful and very luxurious. We loved the bathroom and especially the bath tub! The views from the swimming pool were exceptional. The breakfast was very tasty with a wide offer of Asian and Western dishes, fresh juices and exquisite pastries. We're definitely planning to go back.
Relaxing retreat but quite pricey”
The resort is located in a beautiful setting. The facilities were really good. The pool was fantastic and views spectacular. The villas are okay. They don't feel as private as they should be. Dining on the cliff was gorgeous but you have to go before 7pm. We had dinner at 7pm and it was so dark that it was hard to appreciate what we were eating. We went back the next day at 5pm for drinks and we're amazed by the view. Food was also good, leaning towards the healthier side. I'd recommend Six Senses if you have the disposable income to spend because you should be prepared to fork out $$.
This hotel is eco-friendly, but not user-friendly. We used to stay in many excellent hotels, we love Thailand, but Six Senses Samui was our worst experience. Yes, the view and the services are still there, but be prepared to many negative things, too. Rooms are big but the air-conditioning system is old, very noisy and it was unpleasantly warm inside. The lighting system is poor, depressive, and it will drive you mad to learn how to switch on or off some particular lights. Don’t expect any privacy – our private pool area was located just 2 meters far from the neighboring one, so you will be saying “hello” to guests staying next door to you. You will be attacked by mosquitoes and other insects, we even had a mouse visiting our bathroom!!! It’s because the villas are constructed in the low budget way with holes here and there, doors and windows not closing properly. The number of sunbeds on the beach is too small and not sufficient for all, the swimming pool is unpleasantly warm, not temperature-controlled. We ordered food and drinks by the pool, beer was warm as tea, seafood paella had rotten bad-smelling shrimps. Food freshness is a real problem in the hotel. When dining on the Rocks we were poisoned with rotten oysters, two or three times in-villa seafood dishes had the bad-smelling shrimps. Cheese, sausage or desserts during breakfast are not kept on ice, they just melt in the heat. We ended up with dining in Chaweng restaurants (1000 baht for a return trip). Spa is overpriced, massage – average. Overall, for a short stay, this place may be OK, but for a week or longer holiday chose another destination, you will be frustrated with Six Senses Samui .
Paradise: but could they do better?”
As a one off treat, the Six Senses is absolute paradise. Our villa was facing the sea, with its own pool. Extensive mini-bar, two beautiful bathrooms and about the most comfortable bed this side of heaven. The surround system is extraordinary, as is the mood lighting (which took a call to reception to work out). It is impossible to criticise the quality of accommodation. In addition, the hotel's infinity pool is a sight to behold; the spa is in the most stunning area of rainforest and the gym well equipped. Service is impeccable, sophisticated and discreet. This would be, to me, almost impossible to improve. However, I became increasingly disturbed over our stay by the mark up on food. This mattered, becuase my partner is Thai - and simply could not believe that we would spend as much IN ONE DAY, on lunch, dinner and couple of drinks (easily USD 400), as a Thai would spend in a month. Now - of course- I recognise that this is one of the world's best hotels, but when it's credentials are based on environmentalism, and a healthy, ethical attitide towards CSR, the mark up, struck me as excessive and potentially alienating towards the local community. (I didnt ask about the carbon footprint involved in delivering the European wine list). Its a small gripe - but I overheard other Europeans saying the same thing whilst relaxing at the stunning infinity pool. Its a pity, but we chose to hire a car and eat at the equally good local restarurants in Bophut.
All about relaxation ”
Six Senses is always the best I think. Staff is attentive and very detailed. Food is always great; both authentic Thai and international. No need to go anywhere but just spending time in your room - reading, swimming, sipping wine. I do not hesitate to go back again soon.
Great resort, excellent service”
We stayed for a week in Six Senses and had an amzaing time. The service is excellent, friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to get things arranged and organised for you. The bugalows are amazing, with private plunge pools and everything else you want. Probably one of the best places we ever stayed.
Don't go out”
The six senses is the perfect chill out resort. It is hard to find fault. The staff can't do enough. Food is of a high standard so there is no need to venture out as we discovered. If you do go out, go at night so you can't see the mess they have made of the island. Would go back if it wasn't for the surroundings.
Six Senses are Sustainable resort properties that are worth checking out. They have their own organic farm, zero food waste, and lots of other nice features. The service was excluent and our GEM (Butler) was wonderful.
