Honeymoon Couple ”

Location, staff and breakfast

We stayed at the W-retreat for 7 nights on our honeymoon. This place is absolutely amazing, the staff are the most friendly, genuine people you could ever meet, they felt like family to us and we were so sad to leave. We really can't wait to get back to Koh Samui and stay at the W, we hired a scooter and drove around to the many other hotels in Koh Samui, this included Banyan Tree and Tongsai Bay I am pleased to say that staying at the W was the best decision we have ever made none of these hotels come close to comparing. We will definitely be coming back to stay at the W. We miss all of the staff at the w

High service standart, but not a nice beach”

The staff at breakfast and at the beach, the panoramic views from the breakfast room, the pool

I really like the W Retreat and even got an Upgrade, which was nice. I love the style and design of the hotel, but still I have to stay that the beach is not what you´d usually be looking for on Koh Samui. You can´t go into the ocean without shoes because there are sharp corals (good: there is a warnig sign), and the sand is not that nice either. The AC is hard to deal with - mine was and too cold most of the time, blowing directly into my face at night. Great: The Sweet Spots where you can get drinks and ice cream for free. I didn´t really use it, but I love this gesture, that´s really nice. Plus complimentary water at the beach all day. The bottom line is: I would come back, but not for a long term stay as there are better beaches here.

Room is big and good decoration, swimming pool together with room and foods are delicious and good

We come with three persons in the group for relaxing trip in this hotel, feeling very great in the hotel facilities even for the spa services that I am feeling great and enjoyed for the trip. The service provided by the hotel staff is great and worth for the money you have spend to the hotel. The Lobby have the good view that you and your family can enjoyed with evening tea and taking photos which is the best and relax that I was there.

A bit crowded and over priced ”

1. Rooms are too close and not enough space in the room when compare to other luxury hotels in samui. 2. Not a good place for honey moon or retreat. 3. Some ice-cream in the free sweet spots are melted. 4. Too many mainlanders in W, they are super noisy and destroyed the quietness of a retreat resort. 5. The staffs are helpful and nice after all however, we would not choose to go back anymore. 6. The breakfast and food in the Kitchen Table is very nice.

Stunning view / lackluster experience ”

Fantastic view. Good size villa. Cant think of the third

1) Erratic service staff - we could perhaps identify only 2 staff who were truly friendly and efficient throughout our stay. While the rest might put on a smiley at first, behold, at the slightest incomvenience to them, their face changed faster than Szechuan face mask changing art! My friends and I find it quite entertaining watching them change after a while. God forbids that u want your onions more cooked at the omelette station, eye-rolls and silent grudge will show! 2) no acknowledgement of SPG gold member. Still cost us more than a grand per night though. 3) long wait on the buggy, poorly coordinated lethargic staff (seemingly jaded by tourists) 4) this is by far our worst W experience. The only salvation is the view and nice villa.

Very Overpriced”

Probably the most overpriced hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. There are better hotels nearby also with private pools for 20% of the price. Breakfast requires an early start and a lot of energy due to all the stairs. The rooms are very nice don't get me wrong but even if the hotel offered an 80% discount you still wouldn't get me back there. The beach was nice but there are better and you need to get a taxi to go anywhere else. If they halved the price I would give it 4 stars but at 100,000 baht for 3 nights it's a 1 star place.
