"Can't quite put my finger on it.."
We spent a LOT of money here at Six Senses Samui and expecting great things. I wouldn't exactly call it disappointment but there is something the both of us just can't put our finger on. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The infinity pool was simply breathtaking. The food was yummy but rather pricey. We stayed in the most expensive form of accommodation which was lovely, clean, spacious and functional however lacking the hype and wow that we were lead to believe. It was a quiet space but noisy at the same time with the boats and wildlife. We wouldn't call it luxury either. Leaning more toward westernised. As lovely as it was we will not be returning to Six Senses Samui.
"Excellent luxury resort with just a few quibbles"
We've stayed at Six Senses resorts before and they are always excellent and this one doesn't disappoint at all. The property is on a headland and is cleverly laid out as a maze of wooden walkways and thatched huts to give the impression of living and dining in a series of tree houses! The overall effect is amazing. The ocean front rooms are worth the upgrade - ours had a stunning view and no other room or building was visible from anywhere within. Private infinity pool naturally! Rooms is great if a little dark inside, great showers and baths. Each room is assigned a GEM who is your point of contact. Ours was amazing, very attentive and helpful. The bar is a good with a fine range of cocktails. Food is delicious but pricey. The elite restaurant Dining on the Rocks is particularly so. This should be far and away a 5* review but it was let down by a few minor service issues. These didn't really bother us BUT given the prices here it shouldnt happen hence the slight drop in * rating. Examples of the problems would be wine list sometimes arriving before the menu, sometimes after it, sometimes after the appetiser! They are minor quibbles and, in addition, the resort has recently changed resort manager and general manager so its reasonable to assume that most of these things will be addressed very soon. In summary then, lovely place, expensive but worth it. Well worth a stay and I suspect by summer 2015 when the new management have had time to get stuck in it will be perfect. We hope to return in a year or two an upgrade this review!
"I wouldn't call it 'luxury'."
After deciding on a holiday to Thailand for the first time, my family and I decided on the Six Senses. We had pool villas which were a waste of money in my opinion as there is no sun on the pool side villas (even when we ask to move villas, the jungle shades the majority of the area). The first problem were the mosquitos. I normally go on holiday and use mosquito spray and leave with 1 or 2 bites. At the Six Senses the mosquitos are out during the day which explains why everyone sits by the pool as there is a breeze and not in their 'luxury' pool side villas. Every morning at breakfast, everyone seemed to have 4 or 5 more bites. We were assured by the hotel they were spraying the rooms and when questioned that we never saw anyone trying to prevent the mosquitos, we were informed they were 'discretely' doing so. On returning from this holiday, the Six Senses has concluded there is not a mosquito problem which I strongly disagree with. We met people from different hotels one day when we were exploring the island and they actually asked us what had bitten us all so badly. Non of them had had any problems with mosqutios and they were only staying 10 minutes down the road. The rooms do need upgrading. From the pictures they look great and I was looking forward to using the bath that had the floor to ceiling windows which would open looking out at the ocean (internet picture). The reality is, out of the 60 or so villas, they are all squashed together so you are looking over each other. Therefore it results having a bath in a dimly lit bathroom. The food was extremely over priced. I have been to various luxury hotels and had amazing food, so I was expecting the Six Senses to deliver the same quality. The reality is night after night the buffet is on. I did try the buffet one night and it failed to impress. The only thing that makes up for the average food are the staff that are very polite and if you don't want the buffet, they discreetly offer the al la carte menu. I am very disappointed that my first holiday to Thailand was at this hotel. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
"Amazing...must stay 5 star luxury resort in Samui"
This is a resort not to be missed when visiting Koh Samui. The rooms are excellent, breakfast lavish and the spa fantastic. The personal butler picks you up at the airport and is assigned to you for the entire stay. A great property.
Visited Six Senses with my best mate in July 2014 for 5 nights and we had a beautiful time. Not just from the resort itself but to the service, the food and general relaxation. We were two blokes staying in the one villa, single beds but under the same mosquito net. INK was our 'butler' and her English was fantastic as was her personality. On her day off, she introduced the girl who was going to be looking after us the day before. She made notes and asked us if there was anything we wished for each day, and everyday our ice bucket was filled up at 15.00hrs with sliced lime placed in the fridge with diet tonic (about $5 per can) as we took our own bottle of bombay Gin. Alcohol isn't cheap in the resort but its probably what you would pay back in Australia or England, but remember they add 21% tax and service on top which makes it more expensive. Food is also roughly the same price and I have to say that the nights we ate it was fresh and exceptionally tasty. We also worked our way through the Island Ices Teas (except Bangkok one as it has Red Bull in it :( ) Breakfast buffet was a great selection from Local Champagne (best to have Bucks Fizz), to sashimi, noodles, cooked Asian dishes, dim sim, cereals, fruit, and hot food cooked at your request. There is a daily yoga session that we never partook in, but did try the Spa, which is professional and comes with a 'reading' based on your birthdate. It is dear for what else you can pay in Thailand, but then you are going to expect this. They have cycle bikes that you can hire, plus mopeds but I do not think you are insured in Thailand. As the location is very secluded you are a bit at a loss but they do have a private limo that can drive you for the cost not that much more than a taxi, or a regular shuttle bus that is roughly the same price as well and only leaves a coupe of times a day. your butler can organise all of this for you and tours as required. They have a beautiful infinity pool, and when we stayed the occupancy was only 50% so finding a lounger was not hard and the weather was great most days. They did a cocktail happy hour most evenings about 17.00, 2 for 1 which was great to try and got you in the mood for the evening. The bar snack food, such as club sandwich was edible. This is Thailand and it is set within a tropical resort so of course you are going to get mosquitos. The staff in the evening come around and spray the resort with smoke and also come and light the repellent coils in your rooms, plus pull down the mosquito nets within your rooms. The bathroom doors once closed allow the air conditioning to work as the bathrooms are external but you wont be looked upon whilst showering. They have deep sunken baths in the bathroom and external showers using their own branded lemongrass smelling shower gel, of which you can buy in the gift shop or the spa. There are bath robes and slippers although I did think they looked like they had been reused as you are asked to leave them behind. This is really a resort for couples and is quite secluded away from other places unless you get a car. If you don't mind that then you will have a lovely and relaxing holiday. You can walk from here into Bophut but will take you about overran hour or so to get there passing by the Big Buddha as a tourist stop.
