Nice location, good villas but limited food choices
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed end of March for 10 days in Six Senses Samui. Before we have stayed 2 times in other Six Senses locations. The villas are in super condition and get perfect cleaned every day. Compared to other Six Senses the privacy in your villas is not so good as e.g. in Yao Noi, where you have never the feeling in the villa or at your pool that people can observe you. In Samui you have to pull down the curtains to have privacy and in your pool (in our villas) you can be seen as we also could look into other pools.
The food choices are for our taste limited. But with a taxi you can drive to the villages around and find very good restaurants, which are usually also better in price (including Taxi fees). We had a mixed experience for service. Room service, reception, massage offers and room maintenance were up to the 5star Standard. Breakfast service and dinner service were very often slow. This was a surprise to us as this was the forte of the other Six Senses.
Overall we will not come back to this Six Senses!

Luxurious private escape
Reviewed 3 days ago

My wife and I recently spent 2 weeks in Thailand. One of our stays was 4 days at the Six Senses. Let me just say that we both wished we booked our stay longer. From the moment we were picked up from the airport in their private sedan, we were treated like royalty. The staff treated us with such kindness and respect. They constantly made sure that all our needs were met.
We stayed in Rm 11, an Ocean front pool villa suite. WOW! The views from the room were spectacular. The sunsets were unparalleled. The privacy of our own infinity pool made it very romantic. Turndown service at night included a mosquito net draped over our bed.
The food here was 5 stars. The breakfast buffet was great and there is plenty of options to choose from. American,European as well as Asian choices.
One evening we had dinner at Dining on the Rocks. The ambiance ,service and food was out of this world. My wife said it was a fairytale evening. We reserved Table 99 weeks in advance .Everything we were told about it was true. We had a whole balcony overlooking the bay to ourselves. The food was exquisite and beautiful. The experience was truly 5 Star Michelin all the way.. A bit pricey, but hey, it was our honeymoon.
Ive stayed in 5 star resorts before, but this really was something out of this world. No request was too big. Like I stated earlier, the staff is absolutely amazing.
A special shoutout to Junko who was our personal Jem. She checked on us twice a day to make sure we were happy and if the was anything she could do to make our experience even better,
Thailand is a very long way from NYC, So I don't know when we will be returning. But, I promise you that we will be staying at the Six Senses Koh Samui if we do

Sustainability and luxury
Reviewed 5 days ago

We celebrated the first leg of our honeymoon at Six Senses Samui. It was a fantastic start to our trip. The concept of a dedicated member of staff responsible for all aspects of your stay meant that we didn’t have to fuss about the details - we simply asked to book activities or reservations and it was taken care of in the background without fuss!

The hotel itself is in a beautiful location atop a hill overlooking the ocean. The accommodation is beautiful and maintained to an extremely high standard. The food was fantastic, we enjoyed each and every meal, including the room service menu.

The view from the main pool is fantastic also.

As for the staff....first class, world leading service. The staff are extremely friendly, happy to drop whatever they are doing to assist you and always happy to say hello or stop for a pleasant chat!

You won’t be disappointed.

Relaxation Personified

There is no other way to describe the Six Senses Samui than as 5 nights in absolute paradise. We spent several months researching hotels in Samui, and the Six Senses certainly lived up to if not exceeded our expectations.
We stayed in an ocean view pool villa. The room design was flawless, and the floor to ceiling windows that made up the walls of our room gave unobstructed and absolutely breathtaking views of the gulf of Thailand. Words and photos don't do justice to our private infinity pool and deck. We had a few minor issues with our AC and door knob, but our concerns were literally addressed in a matter of minutes. Housekeeping was also extremely thorough and meticulous, and replenished our room with several bottles of water and fresh fruit daily. We initially had more plans to explore Samui, but the room, pool, and views were so stunning that I can safely say we spent 75% of our time there.
We had all of our breakfasts and a few dinners at Dining on the Hill. The views there were indescribable. The food was superb. The service flawless. I cannot fault it one bit.
The spa is incredible. My husband and I both had two couples massages during our stay there. Hands down the best massages we have ever had. The layout of the spa itself was immaculate. I cannot recommend their spa enough.
Our Guest Experience Managers (GEM) were true gems in every sense of the word. Prae was our GEM on our first night, and Nett for the remaining 4 nights. They both went above and beyond to ensure that we had a flawless stay. We were also treated with a special anniversary cake and mango juice (they initially offered a bottle of champagne but we don't drink) in celebration of our first anniversary which was very nice and thoughtful.
I can honestly go on and on about the resort. 5 star room. 5 star food. 5 star service. Six Senses will not disappoint. This is our first time visiting one of their properties, and I can safely say the Six Senses is now our go to hotel and brand for future trips to come.

Total relaxation and first class service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I have been staying with my husband for the last three nights and have two more nights to enjoy here. This has been a perfect end to an almost three weeks holiday in South East Asia. Our villa (43) is an ocean front one and is fabulous and very private. It is very clean and furnished with taste and style. From the minute we arrived all the staff have been doing their best to accommodate our needs and make us feel welcome. The food is delicious and of a very high quality. There is a great communal pool; however we had our own pool and didn't feel the need to use the bigger pool. For those who want as beach, there is one end of the resort. It is fully serviced by staff who provide food and drink as required. You can request a buggy to take you around the resort if you don't wish to walk. The hotel provides an excellent choice of spa facilities and you can have treatments in your villa for an extra charge. There is a shuttle service to nearest town which they charge for. We went out once to see the town but we decided to stay mostly at the resort. It is worth exploring the town at least once. I am very pleased with our choice of hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. The only advice I would like to give is that it is best to visit Samui between January to March when there is a lower chance of rain.
