We were picked up at 7.15am to join Samui Island Tours to the National Marine Park. We joined a boat and were talked through the itinerary for the day, the crew were really friendly and funny. A couple of people got off the boat before we had even lifted the anchor because the sea was so rough! Tara and I took a sea sickness tablet and hoped for the best (I had a bit of a dodgy tummy). Our first stop was to climb to the view point over an Emerald Lake, the steps ...

With a thunderstorm threatening I turned the throttle to "high" and headed back to Baan Manali.

It's dusk - chilling time in the hammock. Clouds are gathering, the rumble of thunder, forked lightening and the promise of dinner.

... We walked the way but some people could get a 4x4 to do the journey, or even an Elephant!! It was a little touristy though, and even included a small "Safari Park" and a tent where you could have a picture taken with a Tiger. After this longer stop, we got back on the van to go to see the Big Buddha (on the way we dropped off people). The big buddha temple was just north of Chaweng but had a huge 12m tall Buddha that was atop 78 steps. We climbed up the steps and had a look around ...
... to meet for drinks in Fisherman's Village, at the Emerald Irish pub and restaurant at 17:00. Got home, showered, took a bit of a snooze and then we were off to the the Greek restaurant, Fi, for their Friday night buffet which we booked a table for. Greeted and treated like "old" customers on our arrival, their food was still the best in town, and I have a sneaky suspicion they will not let up on the ...
... you may expect, the night becomes more hazy from this point onwards but I'll do my best to give details. The first thing we all clocked is that the actual pool section of party was occupied only by guys, all sort of crouched in eager anticipation of the first girl to venture into it. We all split off our separate ways and George and I ran into the ever-present Jonny and Bruce, who despite never arranging to meet with we seemed to run into everywhere we went. Spent a bit of time ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui Thailand Ko Samui
Our holiday at Four Seasons Koh Samui didn't start so well... when we arrived at the airport, there was no one to receive us, so we had to walk around in the rain with our luggage to try and find our driver. Luckily we found him and the trip to the hotel went smoothly. We booked a one-bedroom villa with a view of the bay, but the villa we got only had a view of some treetops with hardly any sun over the pool area and hardly any privacy as the villa next to us looked right over our pool. We asked for a different villa and were shown two others. We decided to go for 802, which had a lovely view of the beach, the ocean, and another little island across the ocean. This villa however, had hardly any privacy. Getting around the hotel is very difficult; you have to 'book' a buggy at least 15 minutes in advance before you can go anywhere (even to the beach which isn't far). The interior design of the rooms is utterly stunning - this place could be paradise when it's done. Unfortunately there were still a lot of construction going on while we were there, so instead of listening to tropical birds singing while we relaxed on our daybed, we were forced to listen to hammers, saws and drills. We were supposed to spend 8 nights there, but ended up checking out after just 1 night - the noise was too much to handle. The manager was kind enough to offer us 50% off our final bill if we stayed the 8 nights, we still moved to another hotel as the noise was seriously unbearable. Since we were only there for one night we only had 3 meals there, the service was good and the staff were all very friendly. If you like being spontaneous on your holidays, then I wouldn't recommend this hotel, even though the villas are beautiful, it does feel like you're 'stuck' in it. When you make your booking, make sure you book the view that you'd prefer (unless you don't mind looking at treetops and nothing else). Btw. The hotel that we moved is called Sila Evason - do have a look at it. We absolutely loved it. All in all, I'd say its about preference, what kind of holiday you like and what you do on your holiday. This hotel certainly didn't fulfill our needs.
Habe hier das chinesische Neujahr in dieser nagelneuen Ferienanlage verbracht.
Stayed over Chinese New Year at this brand new resort. Pros: Spacious villas with good size private deck and plunge pool. Very modern Asian furnishings that blends Aman style with Four Seasons comfort. Food was excellent, both Thai and Italian and reasonably priced. Small private beach with fairly clear water. Cons: Resort was open for only 2 weeks when we stayed, hence service was a bit green (to be expected). Resort is very spread out over a cliff which requires buggy service to go almost anywhere. Key complaint was that the private owend villas are still under construction with noise pollution from 9-6 everyday (fully audible from the beach and your private deck / pool). Looks like at least 2-3 months before complete. Did not expect this from a Four Seasons and no mention was made of the property's "half finished state" anywhere. Overall, a very nice resort, but did appear to be a little substandard (even once complete) vs other Four Seasons resorts.
Wir kommen gerade von einem wundervollen Urlaub aus dem neuen Four Seasons Hotel in Koh Samui wieder. Die Lage im Dschungel ist fabelhaft, mit toller Aussicht auf das Meer und den weichen Sandstrand.
The previous reviewer did a great job and we'd agree with everything written there. We (stressed overworked Londoners) just returned from a 5 night stay which will stick in our memories forever.
We have just had a wonderful holiday at Four Seasons new Koh Samui hotel. The setting is fabulous, Villas set in a jungle location with magnificent sea views and soft sandy beach.
Long story short, this is a truly fantastic resort that we are DYING to come back to.
I would not recommend the Four Seasons Resort if you are planning on traveling to Koh Samui, Thailand. I would recommend it if you are considering taking a beautiful, secluded, romantic, relaxing vacation anywhere in the world and looking to spend that time in the epitome of luxury.
