Baan Bophut Beach Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bophut
We arrived into the idyllic 'hut-structured' Samui airport at midday on Tuesday & felt totally elated & relieved that it was not like Bangkok! R & E; we booked in with Lucy & Co at Baan Bophut for the first night but extended this stay daily due to the lovely hospitality, great food & unbelievable setting of this resort - we …
Well its Tuesday lunchtime here on Koh Tao and I am having today out of the sun while Andy is off exploring the last few bits of the island on the motorbike. The weather here has taken a turn for the better and its 35 degrees at the moment with no sign of any rain. I had far too much sun yesterday and have woken up after a 14 hour kip feeling …
Well its Saturday night here on Koh Tao, its 10.55pm here and Ive left Andy watching the Newcastle v Arsenal match (with some Arsenal fan he has got talking to I might add - traitor!) in the pub round the corner whilst I update this blog. Its been a few days since Ive updated it and I'm pleased to say we have recovered from both the hangovers and …
... mesh over the part of the balcony that Sandy used to get onto it. We don't want him to be on site and someone hit him to move him off. We took him with us in the car down to our friends along with his beds. We both gave him huge hugs and we cried our eyes out. He had no idea that us driving away meant we were leaving forever.
We have given him a good life for the few months we've looked after him. He's had love, good ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Baan Bophut Beach Hotel
Stayed here with the family for our significant birthdays, (2 x 50th, 1 x 21st, 1 x 18th and 1 x 16th) . Wanted somewhere friendly and comfortable and this was recommended to us by some friends who had stayed there the year before. Very happy with everything, the views, the staff were very good and helpful, and the food was fresh and beautifully prepared. The rooms were also fantastic with possibly the most comfotable beds I have ever had in a hotel, anywhere. The staff were happy to recommend other eating establishments in the village, of which there were many within a very short walking distance. Had a great relaxing time, something for everyone within the village and its surrounds, but none of the usual Thai girly bars in the immediate vicinity although they are readily available in Chewang which is only a couple of miles away and easily reached by taxi should you want that.
Fantastic and relaxing
Stayed at Baan Bophut over Christmas 2005 and also Christmas 2006 along with our 3 teenage children. The village is fabulous with lots of great restaurants and bars but not the "nightlife" that you can find in Chewang, which is only a couple of miles away if you want it. The rooms were large, comfortable and well maintained, we had a small problem with our water and it was sorted out immediately and courteously, which was very impressive. The beach is great and we had lots of lovely walks with the kids, the views being absolutely stunning.
The staff were very friendly and they also went that extra mile to make you feel welcome. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing break with good food and excellent surroundings.
Baan Bophut is ''the ultimate place to stay''. Everything,from the food,to the room and service, is magnificent. Well positioned ( beach front and center of the village)is the greatest place to spend a relaxing holiday. It was quite hard to drag myself out of the hotel even for a drink,since they offer a lovely and cosy beach bar where you could indulge yourself with excellent cocktails, while watching the sun go down! I would say it' s the best place i ever stayed and belive me when i say it,because i m very fussy.
What a lovely familly owned hotel by the beach. My room was very comfortable on the first floor with a balcony that gives you amasing views at sunset. I founded the staff very pleasant which make my stay very relaxing. The food is excellent from morning till night and what a place to enjoy a fresh fish and meat barbecue on the beach with your favorite cocktail in one hand.
I recomended it to anybody who want to have very relaxing or romantique holidays to visit the Baan Bophut hotel.
Le Baan Bophut est le ''nec plus ultra'' en termes d'hébergement. Tout, de la nourriture à la chambre en passant par le service, est exquis. Bien situé (en front de mer et dans le centre du village), c'est l'hôtel idéal pour passer des vacances relaxantes. J'avais beaucoup de mal à quitter l'hôtel, même pour aller boire un verre, étant donné qu'il dispose d'un beau bar douillet sur la plage où on peut boire d'excellents cocktails en admirant le soleil qui se couche !
Je peux dire que c'est le meilleur hôtel que je connaisse et croyez-moi, je suis très difficile.
Baan Bophut - Ab Fab!!!!
We came here afer a horrendous night in the 'Sailing Club' near Lamai Beach... We could not wait to get out of there...
A friend of ours recommended Baan Bophut...
We got there at 7 in the morning, and they were so helpfull.
We got the room, nice and tidy, rightaway.
Showers are hot ( ooh bliss ..such a luxury after a rough night) Nice and big bathrooms, bedrooms are great too!!! We were on the groundfloor, which meant in the morning we only had to open up the door and we could walk straight onto the beach, into the sea. I do think that it was an extra comfortable stay because at a certain point of the week, we were the only guests!! They really take care of you.. I had the most lovely time at Baan Bophut!!!
Our stay in Baan Bophut was fantastic. The 'boutique' style concept works brilliantly here. The rooms are lovely. Simple and incredibly comfortable! In fact getting out of that heavenly bed was sometimes a small challenge! The rooms are clean, cool and well decorated with dark furniture, crisp white bed linen and bright flashes of colour with plants and curtains.
A beautiful boutique hotel in an ideal location
Very comfortable,brand new (Jan 2006) boutique hotel in the quiet part of Bophut (and let's face it - none of Bophut is noisy!) right on the beach.........views to die for (see photo) Rooms are pure white with a very minimal look. Beds are big, beutiful and comfortable with lovely soft fluffy duvets. Bathrooms are wet rooms (no bath). Breakfasts have gorgeous croissants (frsh from the french bakery 3 or 4 doors away), fresh fruit etc. Cooked breakfasts at an additional price. The beach is very quiet almost private but has coarse sand and small gravel. Swimming isn't perfect 'coz the beach shelves very slowly. The tide goes out quite a long way. The staff are very helpful and friendly and most of them speak reasonable english.
This was the second time I have stayed in Baan Bophut, which is in the quiet and relaxing fisherman's village, Ko Samui. The hotel has 5 star standards which are reflected in the overall interior decor, service, additional facilities and unbeatable menu selection in the in house restaurant. There is no portentousness to be found as in some hotels as this one is family owned and run; which generates an obvious personal touch shown to every guest.
The best veiw ever!
This hotel provided the most relaxed and social holidat ever. The staff was great, and the other guest on the hotel was super freindly... The BBQ night created a relaxed and very social evening... I have been to Samui 3 times before and never had a better bed to sleep in.. Go and stay at Baan Bophut and watch the breathtaking view from you balcony and play backcammon in the garden on the grass..
