"One of the nicest beaches in Koh Phangan apart from Ao Hin Lor (Ban Tai)"
The Salad Buri Resort and Spa is a very beautiful resort Thai Style with luxurious rooms and villas, some of the villas are very high in der cliff and therefore we preferred Room 201 in the main building with a fantastic view on a hill overgrown with flowers and palm trees. These days there are many young families with their babies and small children on Koh Phangan. We always went to the Spicy Salad Café on the other end of the bay since there were the nicest people and a great sunset view overlooking the bay. Gig Vasio, Enil and Gang were great hosts and we became friends. Gig even gave a live concert for us on our last evening. THANKS!
"Paradise found after significant flooding events on the mainland!"
This is a great place and a great island. thailand was difficult to plan a vacation for because there are so many places but getting to a less commercialized island was terrific. This resort has great staff and an amazing resort kitten, Coconut! The restaurant was great and the people very accommodating. My room with a personal infinity pool was perfect for my love of water aerobics, although the beach was so much warmer. This resort truly changed my Thailand trip from a looming disaster due to airline, etc to wonderment. There are so many hidden places around the bay including restaurants, yoga, massage that exploring the area is a must. I got in such great shape at Salad Buri with my water aerobics that I truly hated to leave. I kept extending my stay daily. It was a great experience for me and a wonderful less commercial island to add to it. You can rent a long-tail boat to snorkle, do a beach cruise, or ferry to Koh Samui for your flight back to Bangkok. The staff is very cooperative and will help you any way they can. It was a perfect solution to my trip to Thailand!
I havent stayed here as its a bit beyond my budget and i love salad beach resort (same owner) Lovely setting though and very up market spotlessly clean and impeccable staff Pool is great too and wonderful setting
"Perfect for lounging, dinner on the beach!"
We checked in and were told that we'd have to move rooms on the 2nd night, to which we were unhappy with.. We sat there for about 20 minutes and were then told we wouldnt have to move.. Ok.. Got taken to our room up a steep hill in a buggy, only to find we were given an en suite from a family room.. and so had to share a hallway with another couple who literally slammed the doors everywhere they went. Would have been nice to have our own room. Restaurant food is okay, mozzis absolutely everywhere though. They light up some tables on the beach in the evenings and it's a lovely romantic scene, really enjoyed it. Atm in the lobby was handy. Big pool. Bit of a climb to the room though! Staff were helpful. However prepare for 1000 baht deposit for the key! I'd recommend, it's a lovely place.
"Lovely hotel and staff"
The location is excellent for thos hotel. Right on the lovely beach and close to everything. Very nice and large family rooms. However, if you have problems with steps (or small children) you should mention this when booking. Some of the rooms had very many and steep steps in order to get to the room. This gives you an excellent view from the balcony instead. The breakfast was nice and had everything you would expect. The pool was very nice, not so many hotels with large pools nearby so if you like that you should choose this hotel. The food and the drinks (shakes & drinks) ant the hotel restaurant was also the best during our 18 days trip (staying in 4 places) to Thailand. Eat at the Salad Hut restaurant on the beach - it's the best. I would definately go back to this hotel again.
