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!!!
Baan Bophut Bliss
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.
When you do eventually rip yourself out of bed you see that....
- the staff are friendly and hospitable
- the restaurant food is great with a good blend of excellently cooked Thai and European food
- the bar serves fantastic cocktails
- the beach is great for a stroll
- the pool is great with an infinity drop so you san sit back with your book!
Other great extras are the comfortable chairs on the balconies for a tad more privacy, the organised trips available from reception, the DVD/ book library and then of course Bophut which a great little 'village' with some great restaurants and bars. Very warm and friendly feeling to the place!
Definately my place of choice in Ko Samui!
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.
Love Baan Bophut
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.
To my recollection it is the only hotel on the strip with its own swimming pool and private beach area. When the weather is fine it is absolute paradise with a clear view of Ko Pang Yang across the water.
The hotel has great additional facilities including satellite TV in each room, selection of books and DVD's to choose at any time, free of charge. There is an in-house taxi service available and a restaurant serving international and local cuisine throughout the day and night.
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..

The steward glared at me and said sternly "I am busy here sir" and with that proceeded to kap me an ignore (ignored me). A few minutes later she said with a slicing sarcasm in her voice “now what is it you were saying about seating ?”. I repeated my mantra and, despite her attitude, I got the exact seats I requested. After this initial irritation I must admit the actual flight was ...
... 5am, Sarah decided to come on the boat for the final day, and take a few pictures etc. We got filmed doing our final two dives, unfortunately it wasn't as clear, so the visibility wasn't as good. We saw all the same incredible tropical fish again, diving has fast become my favourite thing to do. So much so that after discussing it with Sarah and my group, we decided to all go on to the advanced course which would take another 2 days and 5 more dives. Only this time, you ...
... waiting ages to get served food by evening and drinking the night away. The was also several beach volleyball defeats and being upstaged by a Dutch child at Football, but there's no need to dwell on such things. We also took a snorkelling trip around various parts of the two islands. the highlight being seeing a turtle meandering around without caring that he had 2 dozen people gawking at him.

... clown fish, and sharks! We spotted several, it gives goose bumps but it is addictive and you want to find more. We loved the day. We stopped at places called Shark bay, Mango bay, Japanese gardens, Hin Wong. Our last spot was at Koh Nang Yuang, which are two small islands linked by a sandbank.
I want to post all the pictures but the internet is very slow so i will keep trying to find a place with a good connection but it is a little hard. I warn you though the pictures will make you jealous. ...
