So we left Koh Lanta on the 29th of July and flew out from Phuket airport. Ziggy on a flight bound for Sydney and us on a flight to Kuala Lumpur. We took off the next day for Krabi and ran though the airport to connect with our other Bangkok air flight to Samui. We were only on the ground for 3o minutes! The landing in Koh Samui was hairy and we …
After a scramble at the pierside ticket office in Koh Tao, we boarded a brand-new Lompraya catamaran for the two hour trip back to Koh Samui. The boat was great and good value at 450baht/person and included transfers both ends (which considering taxi prices on Koh Samui is a good deal). We were staying at the Baan Haad Ngam resort just on the north …
Well the journey here was nothing short of traumatic . Twelve hours on a sleeper train with toilets directly from hell. Im pretty sure they are the sole reason for all my pre-trip injections. Shortly after the train we were taken by 'bus' to hell part 2. A deserted shed containing flea ridden dogs, mouldy airplane seats ( I have no idea) and a naked Thai man unashamedly having a shower in the corner. After another six hours of buses ferries and taxis we ...
... 5th bed in the other room as our mattress was bad with the few slats on the bed. However it turned out that they'd sold the bed to another guy presuming we didn't want it. At the time there was nothing we could do except cheekily swap the mattresses over as his was a lot thicker allowing us to have a better nights sleep. By the check out we decided that this wasn't on as we had infact paid for 5 beds at a very expensive rate and the bed should have been kept free regardless if ...
... a good place to have pancakes). We are being picked up in about ten minutes time and going to get the ferry to the mainland and then waiting for a few hours or our overnight train to Bangkok. Sitting here looking out to sea I will really miss this island. The family here have been beyond lovely, we have them their presents today and said our thank you's and goodbyes. The sea is so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Baan Haad Ngam Boutique Resort & Spa Chaweng
A wonderful retreat in Ko Samui
We had a fantastic time at this place, and the room was truly of the most beautiful we've stayed in. There were colorful pillows, dark wood, netting over the bed. It was serene and lovely.
The food at the restaurant was tasty and we stuck to the Thai food b/c the Italian food was pricey.
The view from the restaurant and the pool was breathtaking and we took advantage of it by staying out there almost all day,sipping our coconut and mango shakes and relaxing.
The pool was small and the location of the hotel allows for beach access only for about half the day (due to the tides), but this place was ten times nicer than any of the places on Chawang Beach and it was worth it.
We would go back if we ever go back to Ko Samui.
The only thing I regret about the BHN Resort is that we only stayed there 2 nights.
Great little hideaway
This is a very pretty, tiny little resort. Based on the website, I had thought it would be much larger. It is well run, the staff is sensational, it is very clean, the restaurant, Olivio's is fantastic. We went to the spa on a number of occasions and had first rate massages and treatments. I would recommend this resort, but I myself wouldn't go back again. I found Chaweng to be too busy and crowded, it may have been nice 20 years ago, but it is growing too fast. While we were there, we also had some suits made at Moda Milano - great service and quality. The shopping in Chaweng is more expensive than Bangkok - so save your shopping dollars for the big city.
My husband and I had the MOST AMAZING time EVER at this resort! Our wedding day will be remembered forever thanks to the great location, accommodation, and the fabulous service we received from both the staff and friendly manager, Michael, who ensured the smaller details during our stay that made our time there more special. The resort is on the beach front at the more peaceful northern end of Chaweng Beach. The beach waters at this end, although shallower, was clearer and more blue as opposed to the browner coloured waters in the middle of Chaweng beach. The architecture throughout the resort was beautiful and typically Thai with lots of water features, thatched villas, and green tropical plants and trees everywhere! We stayed in the Executive Villa which was perfect! It was a very large villa with a King size bed, outdoor private jucuzzi, four poster bed, and air conditioning that worked a treat! At the beachfront, was an eternity pool which allowed you to rest or swim with a view of both the ocean's horizon and the translucent waters lapping on the beach! The restaurant at the resort, Olivio's, gave you this same view. The chef had a brilliant selection of delicious meals both thai and western. As for the staff, I can not begin to say enough about how helpful or happy or polite they were! We also used the spa treatments/thai or swedish massages on site which were fantastic too. As for the location, it was a 10min walk or cheap taxi into the main street where all the busy nightlife was. I can reccomend this resort strongly! EXCELLENT! EXCELLENT! EXCELLENT!
When planning our hotel to Koh Samui, I did literally hours and hours of research on the internet, and it certainly paid off when I stumbled across this gem of a hotel.
Outstanding Hotel - Ignore the Poor Reviews
Nothing against those who did not enjoy their stay here, but I cannot fathom not enjoying the Bann Haad Ngam. We spent a week at the resort and from the moment they picked us up at the airport to check-in, to the fruit basket to the restaurant, to the infinity pool....was simply fantastic. Would highly recommend to anyone considering Ko Samui. Many of the resorts are in the busy part of Chaewang, but the Bann Haad Ngam is an escape for the crowds with easy access (by taxi or a quick walk) to all the shops, etc.
Well worth the price - just be sure to get a bugalow versus one of their normal rooms - they are individual rooms and are amazing!
We lived in Thailand for some time, and sampled some of its finest beaches and resorts. This was one of our two favorites.
We had a wonderful stay of just one night at the Baad Haad Ngam before heading over to Koh Phangan. The deluxe villa was exactly like the photos on the hotel website; spacious, well-appointed, and beautifully set in the grounds of the hotel. The bathroom and spa bath were wonderful, particularly following a long-flight.
The views over the bay are stunning from both the infinity pool (small but never crowded) and restaurant. We ate dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant and found the service was excellent and food superb. We found the staff warm, friendly and always willing to assist.
I wish we could have stayed for longer... highly recommended.
We spent the first part of our honeymoon here, and it was a wonderful start. We stayed in the Deluxe Villas, and I would pay the extra to stay here rather then a Superior Room although they did look nice they weren't very private. The Deluxe Villa is set amongst thick green bushes and running water and is a real private & romantic oasis. Its so incredibly quiet here!
This is the first time I ve been writing a hotel review, but frankly this had to be done.
Having stayed at the Imperial and the Amari, we wanted to try something a bit more upmarket and were shown, at a higher cost, the Baan Haad.
What a mistake. The "superior" room was on the top floor of an ugly looking green building, with a view on the same looking building, close enough to see the details inside each of its rooms. The balconies are separated from each other by very little, preventing any type of privacy whatsoever. eventually, we ended up keeping the curtains closed throughout our stay.
The restaurant is just bout OK, and don't expect to swim much in the small pool.
If you want to enjoy your trip to Samui, avoid that one.
