"Very much good rated hotel in kohsamui with epic ambience"
The best time to visit w retreat is near around 5 clock. Its has beautiful sittings and also they do provide for couple candle night dinner which is really amazing. Its bit expensive but you wife will love it. They hav sitting in water also and also lots of variety food.
"Private pool with a view"
Unlike many hotels which offer rooms with private pools stuck behind high walls, the W offers some rooms on the hillside which maintain skinny dipping privacy while allowing great views over the sea. The downside is that it's a bit of a hike up the hill unless you use the hotel buggy. Breakfast is OK but not spectacular. The bar serves nice cocktails, which can be had at 2 for 1 prices if you hunt down the vouchers. A free shuttle runs to the main bar area every evening at 6.30. Takes about 20 mins. I recommend this, since the hotel is very quiet in the evenings (or at least it is during Asia holiday periods). Docked one star cos the service is occasionally iffy, and the upright bike in the gym was in dire need of maintenance and calibration. (Looked OK on the surface, but problems with HR monitor and handlebar controls became apparent after a few minutes use).
Drinks are off the hook but the food is meh. The view can't be beat anywhere else on the island. The location is very exclusive a bit of a drive from the main highway. Our peppy motorcycle got us there quickly. A place to definitely check out and soak in the ambience!
"Restaurant for two!"
We visited the W as a small treat for us both knowing that the W has an exclusive reputation. We were the only two customers in the entire restaurant which gave it quite an unusual atmosphere. We ordered a halloumi and king prawn dish for our starter. Without doubt this was one of the tastiest starters we've ever had! Mains we chose green and massaman curry. The green curry was amazing and really tasty however the massaman was a bit disappointing. We didn't realise it was served with veal rather than beef. This was fine however we did find the veal to be quite fatty which ruined the dish a bit. All in all it was a lovely meal, very pricey but very tasty! If budget is not a problem go at least to soak up the view.
