My wife and I stayed at the hotel for about 2 weeks (last two weeks of September) and really enjoyed our stay. We got an ocean view room which was very nice. The view is fantastic. Honestly can't fault anything in the room. The bed was very nice, spacious bathroom etc. The staff treated us fantastic, nothing seemed to much for them. Always a smile on their face. In terms of facilities (gym, pools, bars, restaurants) there are plenty of options to choose from. Food and drinks are expensive though. About five times for you pay for the same meal (albeit less fancy) when you walk 100 mtr down the beach to i-talay. Keep in mind that the hotel does attract a lot of Chinese tourists and families with kids. All in all great stay. We would definitely come back were it not for the fact that we've seen the island Koh Samui now. If you are looking for a nice five star hotel where you can retreat and relax, Intercontinental is a great option.
"The most memorable vacation ever!"
All information online was telling us that October is a monsoon season and it would rain hard, but it was sunny when we arrived! The lobby literally made my jaw drop, it was mesmerizing. You have the full view of the ocean, I was speechless. Our room has the best view of the ocean, it has a large balcony with sitting area and day bed to fully enjoy the ocean view and the most amazing sunset in Koh Samui. The location is so private, located on the cliff of the mountain overlooking the gulf of Thailand and it was so serene. If you are looking to have a vacation to unwind, have a rest from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the best place to be. The service was exceptional. They literally welcome us everyday and we truly felt that we are all one big family. i would like to thank Aom, Ning, Om.. oh well I cannot remember all of them but they are so thoughtful and kind. They made sure everything was perfect and all our needs were met. The room was spacious, the bed .. oh the bed was so comfortable, the bathroom and its amenities was exquisite. I cannot thank you enough for taking good care of us. I highly recommend this place, all the planning, effort and long trips are so worth it. I will be coming back! I miss this place already, I left my heart in Koh Samui.

The Intercontinental Samui continues to deliver on all fronts for a relaxing, chill time where nothing is too much trouble. The hotel has quickly become our favourite bolthole to escape the stresses of everyday life and recharge our batteries and our next stay is already booked. A leisurely day usually starts with a beach walk followed by that first-world dilemma of whether to swim before or after breakfast. For culinary delights chef T, chef Tao and chef Prahan all whip up excellent fayre – the Thai curries and Indian dishes are standouts for me - under the guidance of head chef Gilbert. Also, the fresh fruit and juices at breakfast should not be missed. This is one of only a handful of hotels in the world where I eat fruit. Special mentions must go to Club manager Laura, butlers Fah and Steve, Lek, Phrae and Kwan in Amber restaurant and the team at Serene and the main pool café for their excellent coffee. Sorry for not naming everyone personally but I must stress that my partner and I have never experienced any bad service at the hotel. As others have mentioned, there are limited facilities around the hotel except for several local restaurants that boast tasty food at cheaper prices than in-house. You can also have a massage at some of these cafes or on the beach for 400 or 500 baht. Although they offer good value for money, the massages are not a patch on the hotel’s Harnn Spa – where I have consistently enjoyed world-class treatments. The only two areas where I believe there is room for improvement have already been noted in other reviews – unsupervised and badly behaved children allowed to free range in the restaurant and pool, plus the range of wines, spirits and cocktails offered to Club guests during Happy Hour. The Intercontinental in Bangkok serves premium spirits and better wines and cocktails than its sister property in Samui so I find it hard to believe that cost is the consideration here. Lastly, we did not get to meet the new manager Michael Shin during our weeklong stay – we were told he was around – and there was no management cocktail, as we had enjoyed on earlier visits. PS Saturday’s fire show never fails to excite!
"Celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary"
We still remember so well staying at your hotel for a week in 1995 with the hotel organizing the church nearby for our wedding on 5th November (only 2nd wedding hotel had done upto then) & the reception/dinner later that same day at the hotel! Now that we just moved back to Asia (Tokyo) with 2 boys in tow, we are so much looking forward to visiting the Ban Taling Ngam again soon to celebrate our 20th & 21st wedding anniversary and hoping to collect our marriage certificate this time round. Look forward to contacting you soon. Kind regards Akemi & Conor MacNamara
