Overlooking Lipa Noi’s white sand beach on the ever popular island of Koh Samui, Nikki Beach is a glam all-suite party pad with a see-and-be-seen beach club. Inspired by traditional Thai architecture, the suites are large and light-filled, with recessed lighting, colonial-style ceiling fans and sprawling private balconies (furnished with a chaise for stylish lounging). The bathrooms come with walk-in rainfall showers, his-and-hers sinks and aromatherapy bath products. There are four pools in total (one exclusively for guests), but most of the action takes place by the infinity pool at the beach club, where the cocktails flow and the DJs spin into the night. There’s a weekly roster of events, from film screenings to live music and an award-winning Sunday brunch. When you’re not soaking up the rays with the bronzed and the beautiful, the hotel offers free kayak, bike and snorkel rental and can arrange cooking classes and trips to local markets; there’s also a massage pagoda that offers a long list of treatments.
In the Area
Take a motorboat tour of the spectacular Angthong National Marine Park — the setting for Alex Garland’s novel The Beach. About an hour’s ride from the resort, the park is ideal for snorkel and scuba excursions, with stingrays, whale sharks and barrel sponges in abundance. Take a trip to the “Big Buddha,” a 35-foot-tall golden statue, with a picture-perfect temple, excellent food stalls and a bustling market. Or enjoy a half-day elephant tour of the jungle, stopping off for a dip at Na Muang, arguably the island’s most beautiful waterfall.
How to Get There
I had the pleasure of staying at Nikki Beach Koh Samui in the middle of November. I've been to Thailand four times and the staff at this resort was by far the best of any resort I've ever stayed. Specifically April. She went above and beyond in every sense of the word to make sure our stay was incredible and everything we wanted. We would meet with her daily in the mornings to plan our daily activities. She took personal ownership to make sure every detail was handled. If you have the pleasure of staying here make sure you ask her for help. She's beyond a sweetheart and very knowledgeable about the island. The resort itself is breathtaking but the staff is what made it memorable.
At first we were a bit skeptical about staying here because it didn't look a "family friendly" type hotel. To be honest, we almost canceled our booking too! But, were we glad we didn't cancel it! We had a great time at Niki Beach Resort & Spa! The hotel is very well maintained, spotless, so Instagrammable at any angle you take photos (if you are into Instagram :), great staff, nice and helpful. They have activities for adults and kids from Mon-Saturday. We tried the yoga classes and all the kids activities were led by Rain. She was great! So energetic, friendly, and a fun person to be with. Great food! Breakfast was so well done and focused on quality over quantity.
The beach was perfect for little kids and totally clean. The sand was perfect for sand castles and the water was great for swimming. The swimming pool was amazing.
The staff consistently went out of their way to make our stay great.
Everything about this place was wonderful.
My wife and I went to a Sunday Brunch here late in Oct.
Food is not that good, to be honest quite overpriced for what you get, but I guess that was to be expected. The scene is nice, just next to the ocean, good music and service, the waiters are quite attentive and always around to help.
Overall is ok, I’m not sure I would come back though, whereas we did have a good time, it’s seems better suited for larger groups.
Thank you Nikki Beach Resort & Spa for a wonderful 5 night break. You were ALL attentive, friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much, you created some very special memories for my girlfriends and I.
I would just like to mention several of you but sorry for not getting all of your names...Tayyaba ...you looked after us and our room was spotless everyday, you ensured what we needed was always to hand and always with a warm smile; Maureen, for being the best hostess at brunch and making our day with your kindness and sense of humour and Ali; we had an amazing time on both the yacht and safari you organised for us, we now have the best of memories with some wonderful photos and videos ...such amazing experiences, we wouldn't have done them without you!
Sorry for not mentioning everyone we met, you are all appreciated! Thank you again for a wonderful time.
Best wishes Karen x7
Went there for a sunday brunch which the resort is famous for. Great party and good food. Place was flooded with tourists/locals dancing to great tunes. Hotel seemed ok. It's a bit far from the main Chaweng area but nice once you get there.
