How to Get There
There is much to like about this resort. Beautifully architected property on lush grounds, focus on sustainabilty practices, service that caters to your every need, spacious villas with private pools, and excellent dining options. Every guest is assigned a Guest Experience Maker who makes sure that anything you could possibly want or need is managed.
What keeps this resort at 4 rather than 5 stars are details that have been mentioned in previous reviews, they include:
• Mosquitos and bugs.In a tropic area, you expect there to be some however I don't really expect to receive 25+ bites in a 5-star resort. Part of the issue is that the doors do not close without being bolted, and the cleaning staff leaves the doors ajar when they come in. At the happy hour reception, it was almost comical to see all the guests wildly swatting away as soon as the sun set and insects descended upon them. We burned incense and had multiple devices to keep the bugs away - to the extent that I had a difficult time breathing at times. When things get this bad, the hotel really needs to take more extensive measures to ensure comfort.
• The resort is looking tired and could use some care - faded wood, overgrown vegetation, stained tiles, etc.
• Water filtered on-site has a salty, unpleasant taste. The sparkling water is better.
Overall we did enjoy our stay, we were just expecting a little more and feel that this resort could really shine with some TLC.
We felt so welcomed from the moment we arrived at Six Senses. Our GEM (Guest Experience Maker) Zoe was incredibly helpful and the overall hospitality of all the other staff was so great! We loved our Ocean view Pool villa and enjoyed every minute we spend there.
The sunset and sunrise at Six Senses is incredible. So good they have two sides where you can watch both. We had a wonderful sunrise from our villa and loved the breakfast by the pool.
Also the main pool is huge and the view from the infinity pool unbelievable. The cold water they serve at the pool is a perfect refreshment and we both LOVED the free ice cream between 3 - 5 pm!
Overall and unforgettable experience. Thanks Six Senses Koh Samui for making our dreams come true!
We just finished a 5 day stay at Six Senses Samui and I left wanting many more days there. The property has a relaxing feeling with great views, well attended grounds and a staff ready to help. Our designated staff person was Faii. She was attendant to us, offering suggestions and ensuring we were getting the most out of our stay. Gary, the GM, was wonderful to talk to and personally led the sustainable garden tour. Our villa, with it's private pool, was fantastic. And dinner at Dining on the Rocks was a perfect way to end our stay. Thank you Six Senses. We will be back.
This is our 4th visit on SixSenses Samui and as always it’s amazing. Even if it have been 7 years since last time on this location it’s like coming home again.
We travel a lot to luxury resorts like this both for holiday and professional as a part of our work but even if there are more luxurious alternatives, Six Senses are truly special. Few if any resorts provide the same atmosphere of total relaxation and mindfulness.
Also we highly value the sustainability focus at SixSenses. No plastic bottles, their own water and a minimum of disposables, straws made out of lemongrass, a Six Senses farm with herbs, vegetables and eggs and the new waste disposal facility to control waste cycle is a great example for others to follow.
We stayed 6 nights in a sea view pool villa, number 51 near the beach. Like all villas, this one was completely integrated with the surrounding greenery and nature with a great view over the bay and ocean. The interior is light wood with a very comfortable bed facing the ocean through large glass windows. The bathroom have a indoor bathtub and a nice outdoor shower under a roof with bamboo walls. The outdoor areas beside the pool have a large terrace with very comfy sun beds, dining table with chairs and a Sala with a daybed under a bamboo roof overlooking the sea and nature. To be awakened by birds and view the sunrise over the ocean from bed makes every day a good day.
The resort have 2 restaurants and we did take all our meals on these during this visit. The spectacular Dining on the rocks with several wooden decks over the sea and nature are serving set menus from 3 dishes and up. I bit pricy but it’s an unique experience with great food and well worth at least one visit. Most of our meals we had in the Thai Restaurant, Dining on the hills. Great Thai food even if we had to ask for making it more authentic as the spices ware a bit to tuned down at first try. This is also the breakfast restaurant and we really enjoyed this - especially that a new menu for order was available every day beside the buffet and egg station. The juices are fantastic. If anything we think that 7 is a bit late to open for breakfast. But we got served before this so this time was a bit floating.
The main pool area with a large infinity pool have a fantastic view over the bay and neighbouring islands. High level of service and very comfy sun beds. We spend almost all days here but managed to forget the free ice cream served at afternoons.
The spa is great as always on Six Senses, well worth the little higher price level. It’s located downhill next to the sea and staff are very professional. My wife also enjoyed the morning sessions of yoga and thai chi and the gym.just one small thing here is that we would appreciate if morning activities had been a bit earlier then 8:30 to use the lower morning temperatures and give more time for breakfast after activities.
This truly is a resort for relaxation and charging your batteries. For anyone that likes more action it’s easy access with shuttle to nearby fishermen’s village or Chaweng beach but that’s not the reason to stay here. Party people can probably find other alternatives more suitable for their needs.
The service is great and personal at all levels, from pickup at airport, at checkin/out and on all facilities. Our personal butler Peter was very helpful and booked restaurant, spa and other activities. Also hotel management are very available and we appreciated a lot the farm tour with both the hotel and sustainability manger.
We highly recommend SixSenses for anyone searching for a unique high level experience and it will not be 7 years before we return again.
Spent a few nights there to relax and wasnt disappointed at all
Our GEM was very nice and helpful
Its in a secluded part of Samui, rather private
the hotel manager gave good restaurants advice (outside of the hotel) which were quite nice
we appreciated the chance of having a private pool, best way to start and end the day...
the beach is rather small, but not many people anyway
the infinity pool is very beautiful at night, direct sunset view
outside shower is quite cool
the breakfast is great. the view from the restaurant is great and they change the food selection every day (partially a la carte but you can choose as much as you want)
there are bikes to use for free during one hour which we took to buy some stuff nearby, but beware as its rather hilly, not a good idea to venture too far without water
free kayak, you can use these to explore the nearby island in front of the hotel.(even though nothing to see there, its rather dirty and full ot plastic trash,; very sad)
Gym is OK.
You can"t really go wrong choosing that place. Contrary to other comments I think the price at the main restaurant was very good for dinner, every day a new set menu is available, and if you are tired of it you can take a Grab and go to the fisherman village to try something else. The afternoon there is a deal for three drinks at the price of two which reduces a bit the damage- 900 thb for three drinks.
only con is apparently the mosquitoes, I didnt get a single bite during the 4 nights of my trip however that wasnt the case for my gf which suffered a bit. For this reason we may unfortunately not be coming back. But I'll try to convince her...
