All "tourist spots" need to sell themselves hard; it's a highly competitive industry. Thus they "spin" their special attractions in a way only politicians could better. Koh Samui makes much of its Big Buddha statue, a waterfall, rock formations that have been carved by nature's elements to resemble male and female genitalia and a mummified body of …
Let me start off by saying WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE FOR NEW YEAR'S!! A close second to our last NY's trip to Cartagena, Colombia, this year was a blast. Koh Samui is beautiful, tranquil in many places, and a HUGE international party scene for the new year celebrations.
We stayed at Amari Palm Reef Resort in Chaweng, www.amari.com about a 10- …
Off to Ko Phi Phi tomorrow for 4 days before heading to Ko Samui. Island time what I have so been looking forward to
Our over nighter from Bangkok left more or less on time and arrived only an hour or so late. The AC coach was much more comfortable than our previous 'fan only' sleeper so we we managed a little more shut eye this time round. The highlight was probably the restaurant car which housed tables and chairs complete with table cloths and salt shakers. We each ordered one of the set menus (from a choice of A, B, C, D, E, F and J....?) which gave us ...

We went back a few hours later and he was slowly coming out of the sedation. I sat with him whilst Darren went to collect laundry and a new fridge. Sandy laid across my legs and drifted in and out of sleep. Every now and then he tried to stand but his ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAmari Palm Reef Koh Samui Chaweng
This review could say it all with a single word "Tops"! The accommodation is splendid, location ideal, service deft and cordial, food abundance and select, gardens and pool a delight. If you find the price right - as we did - go there.

Historical Traveler Reviews Amari Palm Reef Koh Samui Chaweng
We stayed at the amari for seven nights in december for our honeymoon before moving onto phuket and i have to stay we have stayed in many 4 and 5 * hotels but not one could match the standards and service we received at the Amari. We stayed in a deluxe room overlooking the gardens which was very contempary , the bathroom had a huge power shower and separate bath . I have to agree also with other reviews about the pool attendants, whom like them we tipped on the first fews days and after that we did not have to lift a finger, every morning when they saw us heading to breakfast they would get our beds and beach towels out ready. If we were to return to Kho Samui we would not stay at any other hotel...definately recommended !
Fantastic hot shower
A fantastic hotel. I couldn't help but laugh at the gentleman who wrote a review October 2004 regarding how dissapointing the hotel was based on the shower pressure and temperature not being sufficient.
I can confirm that during my visit shower pressure was comparible to a firemans hose, temperature comparible to a steam compressor. Even if it hadn't been it wouldn't have spoilt my holiday (fool)
We stayed in the the deluxe room, a lovely example, huge bed, huge shower (very hot and very powerfull) and really great effective air conditioning (definately required)
The staff were excellent, breakfast selection great and restraunts were excellent.
Would definatley go back if I was the type to return to destinations year after year, Vietnam for me next year!!
what a excellent place to stay,the friendly staff ,brilliant restaurants especially Prego italian restaurant,
The breakfast buffet was the best selection of food I have seen
We upgraded to a delux room before we arrived and was in the garden area,good sized bedroom large bathroom with bath and very good large shower cubicle
we were met every morning and transported to breakfast by golf cart
we arrived back from a day out to find a birthday cake ,flowers and fruit
such a nice touch with no prompting
Set on the peaceful end of the beach but only a few minutes walk by beach or road for nightlife
The hotel and gardens were lit up at night very pretty
We will be back
Stayed in a suite - closest rooms to the beach. They have huge bathroom and an extra area at the from with a table and sofa. Got a great package deal through the Amari website including breakfast and a meal.
Brilliant service - plate of sweets every night, and fruit / cheese / smoked salmon on arrival and departure. Enormous choice at breakfast buffet.
Bar @C serves cool cocktails - Spa will do an hours' massage for about GBP15.
Right at the north end of the main stretch of Chaweng, but still walkable to the centre. Highly recommended.
I wish I had read the 3 previous reviews before travelling to the Amari! Although I agree that the design of the hotel, and Prego and Bar@C were all excellent, unfortunately I had booked a superior room, and in this case superior is actually the standard room, and I was disappointed. The room was smaller than I expected, although adequate and very clean. My problem was that the room smelled quite fusty, and the bathroom was tiny, with only a shower that wasn't high enough to stand upright in! Our balcony was also right next to the main road. The decor was a little dated & I think they need to update this so the rooms are the same standard as the rest of the hotel. However, I'm still giving the hotel a good mark as staff, service & food were all excellent. I would return, but would upgrade to a deluxe room on next visit as it sounds like the rooms are much better.
My wife and I stayed at the Amari Palm Reef for seven nights at the end of February. We couldn't fault it on anything. The rooms were clean and spacious. The hotel setting and layout was just beautiful and very clean, especially at dusk when they turned on the hundreds of lights which adorned the palm trees and buildings all around the complex. Staff were very helpul and extremely friendly. We tipped the pool attendants on the first couple of days, and for the rest of the holiday, the sunbeds we preferred were set up for us with towels on them every morning, saving me the hassle of getting up early to get a good spot. The breakfast was great with a large choice of very fresh food and the the Bar@C was great, especially the three king size beds they have for you to lie on and enjoy your cocktails. A previous reviewer mentioned the mosquitoes. We didn't find these a problem as the maids came round every evening to turn our beds down and spray repellent in the room and left my wife a flower each night. I would have no hesitation in going back again, in fact we met several people who regularly stayed there each year.
My partner and I had booked to go to the Amari in Phuket and of course, because of the tsunami, the hotel was closed. We re-arranged to go to the Amari in Koh Samui, which was slightly more expensive - but we were not disappointed.
I got married at this hotel and it was amazing, my parents love it so much they now return every year. Especially loved the location, althought the resteraunt is beautiful you can get equally good food cheaper elsewhere.
I have stayed at several other Amari hotels, and have always had a good experience, until this one. The surrounding area outside the hotel is beautiful. The rooms are very small, but the major problem is the shower. It has very little pressure, and changes constantly from too hot to too cold, and was a big turnoff for both me and my wife.
