      A good pampering getaway”

      The villa was beautiful as it faced the open sea and the staff were super friendly especially the 'juice lady' who made fresh fruits and recommended a good fusion for my flu. Enjoyed the Thai themed night with cultural show as we enjoyed the excellent food buffet and fruit and soap carving which was done on the spot. Just be prepared to walk a steep staircase heading to higher villas but worth the view.

      Private secluded place”

      We had a great time at this property, even though there was renovation going on when we stayed there. We were looking for a relaxing vacation and we got it here. Upon check-in, one of the staff took us to a cottage located up a hill with steps too steep for us to climb but after we requested for a reassignment of one near the pool, they kindly obliged to our request. I thought that because we were there during the low season, they were able to comply to our request. The food was good and the service was excellent. A great place to be.

      Nature, superb service staff & nice restaurant

      We had requested for an early check- in during our reservation. We reached Tongsai Bay at half past twelve. Normal check in time for Tongsai is 2pm. The guest service staff had told us that the room that we going to stay still not available as previous guests had late check out and they trying their best to clean/tidy the room. We waited until 220pm yet the room still not ready. Leisa, General Manager of the tongsai bay had noticed us and gave us a complimentary dinner with a bottle of house wine voucher, what a surprise for us. We didn't aspect Tongsai gave us such reparation for keeping us to wait. How sweet and attentive they are! We had travelled a lot and this is the first time we received voucher due to late check in for guests! Not to mention that, all the staffs in tongsai including gardener will greet u whenever passby them. So attentive! What impressed us is how Tongsai reserved nature by not using any pesticides or chemicals fertilizers used to maintain their grounds. Po-lad bistro & bars is a must to dine in when you stay here. They had wonderful dinner menu & wine for your selection! Worth to mention is the restaurant located beside beach where you can dine under moonlight! How romantic is that! Me and my husband had a wonderful experience in eco friendly yet luxury hotel! Definitely go back again for Tongsai!

      Great place. Fully enjoyed our stay despite the rain”

      Weather was not agreeable. It rained very hard for the 3 days we were there. Because of the wind, the ocean was very choppy and the beach was closed. That was a disappointment but nobodies fault. Only two of the three restaurants were open but the food was quite good. The breakfast spread was excellent! We had an ocean facing room and it was very very comfortable. I’ll definitely return and next will rent personal transportation so we can explore the island.

      Amazing place with in the jungle Nice and (very) quiet hotel great vila’s great staff Location is a bit off Chong Mong small strip and beach that will be the only downside as you will need to walk up and down the nerrow road that is not a great experience with small kids So we had to take a taxi 150B for 2 min drive to Chong Mong Food in the hotel is very expensive the Thai restaurant is great ! But the pool restaurant is not great at all but super expensive. Overall a great hotel for a relaxing vacation

      We stayed at the Tongsai Bay for the second time in 3 years. We loved the 9 days - the staff and the location made it a perfectly relaxed and enjoyable holiday. We like the private setting, the unintrisvness of the staff whilst still always "being ther for us", the high level of detail and care. The quality of the food and the location that makes you feel safe and gives you peace of mind.

      Absolutely perfect. Words can't describe the beauty. An absolute must go in koh samui”

      I picked this place as the "sit on a beach" portion of our trip. I wish it was the only place I booked in Thailand for our two weeks, absolutely stunning. Immediately upon arrival you realize that you are in a special place, they greet you with essential oil ice towel and a very refreshing cold tea. The concierge takes you to your room (we had a seafront cottage) and shows you all of the amenities in the room. The view off the cottage was amazing, could have stayed right there. The beach front restaurant has incredible Thai and American food. One of the best burgers and tom yum soup I had all trip. The included breakfast was AMAZING everything you could ever want, best lattes and cappuccinos I had all trip. The big difference to me were the employees. Everywhere else in Thailand people are friendly but seems to have their own agenda. Wanting to sell you something. In tongsai bay, I genuinely felt welcomed and they were very happy to see us every morning. Best resort stay of my life.

      Wonderful experience at The Tongsai Bay”

      We enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much. We got upgraded and stayed in the seafront cottage. Well.. the room was on a hilltop and a little climbing to get there, but it was always well worth the climb :) Perfect for people seeking for privacy. The politeness and commitment of the staff was on the top.. probably the best we have ever experienced... Our room was made up twice a day and fresh fruits and cookies were nice too. Loved the private and clean beach, with very attentive beachboys and fresh coctails. Breakfast was also a wow :) Enjoyed every detail.. special greetings to the fruit lady Pu, who always greeted with the widest smile :D WIll definitely come back some time.. Kärt & Kert Kalev

      Althought its our first time in Koh Samui, we have very high expectation for our hotel in this type of resort. We are seeking a hotel with tranquility and peace throughout our stay, Tongsai Bay is exactly the perfect hotel! Hotel is clean, staff is very friendly and helpful, snacks and bottle water always get replanished, even our transport is very well arranged. Except food, not much selection, and mosquito, everything else is very well within our expectation. We will definatey visit again and highly recommended to our friends and family.
