"Stunning Location, Great Service"
You get what you pay for in Thailand, and Six Senses Samui is no different. Yes, it costs more than the average hotel, but the food, service, restaurant options, location, staff, beds, activities and facilities are perfect - plus you pay for exclusivity. We stayed for 5 days for our Honeymoon in late October 2014. As people have mentioned, yes there were mosquito's and patches of rain, but that's what you expect in a tropical environment and Six Senses do what they can to reduce the impacts by providing umbrellas, covered transport and mosquito coils for use. The food was superb with a great variety and staff were lovely and accommodating. We were met with a complementary bottle of Sparkling Wine and some snacks and our room was stocked with all the luxuries including the much needed Aloe Vera After Sun lotion. My only negative was that we couldn't stay longer! I would definitely go back again soon!
"Another Great Stay"
My wife and I went to Six Senses Samui for our 5th wedding anniversary at the end of November, just last week. Luckily the weather held out for us and it was mostly sunshine for all 5 days of our stay. I cannot say enough about the Six Senses staff; I think they are fantastic. We got a room upgrade, complimentary bottle of champagne & cake, the whole nine yards. Our butler was always on point as well. The grounds are also stunning. Lovely views everywhere you look. Now, the Six Senses is not cheap, but I love the concept and I think it's worth it. It's very private and it's very remote; it's like your own piece of Samui to enjoy. Frankly my wife and I spend a lot of time outside of the resort via scooter (which is only a 10 minute drive from Chaweng, contrary to a previous review that said 35 minutes). Look at a map prior to going and there will be no surprises. The resort is set in hillside jungle, so there are mosquitoes and critters, but we have only experienced mosquitoes and that is to be expected in such an environment. The private pool at the villa is great and the staff are super helpful with any in-villa requests. It is very hilly, but I like that. You get your exercise in just walking around the resort; it wouldn't be ideal for little kids, but I think it's great for adults. If you are a beach person, their beach is not great; luckily I'm not a beach person! I'd recommend Six Senses in a heartbeat and intend on going back again...hopefully before another 5 years! Samui is my favorite.
"Good but over priced!!"
Stayed in November 2013 which unfortunately was the peak raining season in Koh samui! We were upgraded to a private pool bungalow which was very nice, but you have to really appreciate nature to like this hotel, it felt like we were truly in the jungle, 2 snakes in our private pool, spiders galore and lizards on the roof :( The hotel breakfast buffet was fantastic but dining on the rocks was overly hyped. Vast amounts of walking required to get from your room to the dining area if you do not opt for the buggy service. The gym is good, but the spa was not so welcoming. I booked this trip through Virgin holidays using their VIP service, the hotel was extremely expensive but didn`t deliver the 5 star service we have received at other locations. Our butler was a guy (whom i forgot his name) at first he was good, but his level of service slipped, so we use to deal with a young lady who was outstanding at her job. Even when we checked out our butler was nowhere to be seen when the bags needed lifting, but the lady organised it all for us. it`s extremely remote, you will need a scooter to travel around on, you could stay elsewhere for cheaper maybe better service, but it`s a place with breath taking views!!! The infinity pool is one of the best pool`s i have seen as the views from their are mind blowing. I just which that this place was closer to the main night-life, restaurants as they are a minimum of 35mins away on scooter.
"Not what we expected "
The six senses hotel in ko Samui left us was somewhat disappointed. Taking into consideration the price, and what the hotel offers, I would have to say it is not a good deal. When you pay this price you expect luxury. This means perfect service, cleanness, superb food and lots of little things that would make your stay unforgettable. We found the hotel a little bit impersonal. It is a huge complex, with bungalows everywhere and the overall service + installations doesn't make it feel special. We had a constant feeling that we were just one more of 200 guests in the place. Which doesn't match their high prices. The villa itself was outstanding. We had a personal pool (which wasn't that clean). The bathroom was huge and nature oriented with a beautiful external shower. But then again when you used the shower, a you just had the impression that it was old and not working well. The common areas were a disappointment. The pool was not big enough for the hotel size and it felt packed all the time. The spa wasn't inviting and really overpriced. The breakfast had a beautiful view but it was also totally packed everyday. Remind us of a Disney resort. Which made us not use any of them. The best part of our stay, was a lady that was our butler. She was great and understood our needs right Away. Well choosing a hotel in ko Samui, if you wish to have high luxury, I would go for the Four Seasons instead. Otherwise, save your money and stay I cheaper place than six senses which will offer a probably similar experience.
The best thing about this resort is the view that all rooms and amenities share. Wherever you go you get a view of the sea. The staff are all very very attentive. My only gripe (and a very small one) would be the charge for the shuttle service to the main areas outside the hotel. Other than that a fantastic place to stay to get away from the busy parts of Samui and worth every penny.
