Excellent service & beautiful beachfront hotel”

Service, breakfast, rooms, hotel grounds, shuttle service

Bandara was the perfect place to spend our time in Koh Samui. Situated on Bo Phut beach, we were immediately greeted by extremely friendly and professional staff. The hotel grounds are stunning, all gardens are manicured, there are 3 large pools (although 1 was closed for renovations, daily activities, a spa and a beach bar and restaurant.The buffet breakfast and definitely the best we experience while travelling around Thailand.The hotel is situated 15 minutes from Chaweng Beach and the hotel provides free daily shuttle services. It was great staying so close to the action, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet on a much quieter beach. The Fisherman's village is also a 5 minute walk along the beach which has various restaurants, shops and bar. We were unfortunate enough to have our credit card stolen (in another hotel, however Bandara staff were more then helpful during this period whilst trying to sort out finances from the other side of the world. they went above and beyond their duty, especially the Manager Tam. We loved staying here so much we booked an extra night. Also the Deluxe rooms are very spacious and it might be worth while to request a room closer to the beach rather than the road.

Pleasantly Surprised!”

Room Size, clean, service, pools, grounds,location

we had not traveled to samui but visited other areas of thailand. bo phut was recommended as a quieter but with plenty of quaint restaurants /bars. the beach did not get a lot of good reviews, but decided to take a chance. without any expectations the bandara was excellent. we stayed 7 days with b'fast included. we didnt tire of the options/variety to eat for b'fast at all and was good quality as well. rooms were spacious (garden view) top floor with vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan was better than many we had in thailand. and very clean. the grounds keeping is meticulous and the pool areas were huge with various options. i liked the beach as the sand was more grainy than the 'white sand'beaches...makes it easier to manage when its windy. has the tuna at lunch several days and it was cooked perfect, not always the case. pizza wasnt great, but all thai food was very good (but as expected more pricey than in other restaurants) friends stayed at the anantara and i did not like it as much as the bandara. it felt claustrophobic where the bandara was quite spacious and always seemed to have a nice breeze. all in all....we will be back to the bandara.

Great service, great value for money”

Spacious room with a big bed, a daybed on the balcony with a great view.

we stayed at the bandara resort for only 1 night, as we were on route from bali to koh tao for a scuba diving trip. we would have loved to stay longer at the bandara resort, as the room was very comfortable and spacious, with a large bed, as well as a day bed outside which would be great for relaxing with a book. we arranged hotel transfer from the airport, and the bus was very comfortable - they even gave us both a complimentary bottle of water. at the hotel we were greeted with a very warm welcome, the staff were very friendly and we were given a wet towel and a welcome drink to refresh us after our flight. there is free wifi which was great, we just had to collect a user name and password from the lobby. the bathroom was nice and spacious, but the only letdown was the shower which was quite average. the buffet breakfast was nice, they had a children's section which had some milo box drinks! although we had to leave the hotel straight after breakfast, i had a look at the hotel pool which was a decent size, and had plenty of sunbeds around it, there were also a few daybeds along one side which looked very comfortable. i would be happy to stay here if i came again to koh samui. for the price that we paid, it was a great hotel - value for money!

We Just WIsh We Were Still There...”

Quiet beach, Amazing Pool, Wonderful Breakfasts. Wifi everywhere (even the beach!)

My wife and I are lucky enough to work together and our job lets us travel quite a bit. Since we got married last year, we semi-jokingly refer to each trip as "our honeymoon". After five of them, we've found a winner... Bandara and Koh Samui are, hands down, the best honeymoon trip you can ask for. Everything about our 8 days there was perfect. In terms of location, Bophut is easily the best place to stay on Koh Samui. It's the "fancy" part of the island... in a good, understated way. We rented a car and after one circle around the island, decided that there was no need to leave Bophut ever again. Everything you need is within walking distance. Having Fisherman's Village right down the road is great. A nice place to eat or do a little shopping but not much else going on there. We stayed in a regular suite at Bandara and never got to see the ones with the private pools but for our needs as a young couple with no kids, the suite was more than fine. The main pool is so spectacular that I don't think I could leave it for the smaller private one anyway. We looked at several of the neighboring resorts. Quite a few of them seem very nice and you probably can't go wrong anywhere in Bophut. But without a doubt, you will not regret it if you wind up at Bandara.

Excellent Holiday at the Bandara”

This was our second trip to the Bandara after having an amazing experience there on our honeymoon in 2013. This time we returned with two kids in tow. Amazing location, with literally 5star facilities and located in quite possibly one of the best spots in Koh Samui (Bo Phut). Staff were so friendly to us and the children. the cleaner kept our room nice and tidy everyday (and we are quite a messy family). Couldn’t rate this place highly enough. I would urge anyone contemplating to stay here to have no concerns whatsoever. You’ll absolutely love it here!

Fantastic resort”

Fantastic staff
Pool bar lunch menu rather expensive

We stayed at Bandara resort and spa for 5 nights. It is an amazing resort, from the moment we arrived we had impecable service. The resort grounds are stunning and it truly felt that we were being spoiled for our whole stay! We visited the spa and this was fantastic, again amazing staff and we were so relaxed by the end. The food in the restaurants is great, our only minor complaint was that the pool bar food menu although very nice was rather expensive for a quick pool side snack. However we would definitely visit this resort again if we come back to Koh Samui

Fantastic Family-orientated venue”

Bandara located on the Beach, Bo Phut is quite and a perfect area for a family holiday, close to excellent restaurants

We, as a family with young children, had a fantastic time at Bandara Resort. The location of the resort in Bo Phut is quieter than Chaweng and perfect for a family holiday. The Resort has direct access to the beach which is located in a secluded bay therefore the sea water is very calm and perfect for young kids. The resort has 3 swimming pools with 2 located next to the beach. Bandara's closeness to the Fishermans Village is also great where some lovely restaurants are located. I can highly recommend The Hut and Cafe 69, both locally owned with excellent Thai food. The only opportunity for Bandara is to get a Kids Club going as this will assist parents to get more time for shopping and browsing the local markets. Otherwise I highly recommend Bandara Resort for a great, peaceful holiday.

Thank You Bandara”

It was our 1st time in Koh Samui and we experienced great hospitality all Bandara stuff. I'm really pleased with the service, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in this resort. Spa experience was good as well..look no further if you are going in July. They have got 1 for 1 Spa Buffet for Thai Baht 3,390 for 2 hours of treatment. We did our comparison and this is really worth it as compared with the cheaper ones outside. Fisherman's village is also just a stone throw away...walk by the beach to get there. Chill at Coco Tams for a drink. We will definitely be back next June with our family to stay with Bandara. Happy & Satisfied Couple

A romantic getaway”

Great pool villa, fantastic grounds and 3 different styled swimming pools.

Researched extensively on Agoda and found Bandara Resort to have the best overall reviews. Not letdown at all by the rave reviews. Check in was pleasant, comfortable and efficient. The receptionist personally walked us to our pool villa. The villa was as good as it looked in the photos. Great design and privacy. The only problem was low water pressure, it being a single storey stand alone building. The grounds was very well designed & up-kept. The swimming pools were varied in design with plenty of room for everybody. The staff were very well mannered with a pleasant Sawadeeka for everyone. Breakfast was about the best we had come across, dinner was quite good too and not too exorbitant. Bo Phut Walking street was just a 5 minutes stroll along the beach. There you can find various types of restaurants and bars. Right across the street, you can conveniently find Family Mart & cheap massage joints.

Amazing”

Amazing resort with great friendly staff. The resort is in a great location and a skip away from Bo Phut Fisherman's Village and night market (best night market in Samui in my opinion). Its the perfect family resort and life was just relaxing...buffet breakfast follow by the pool follow by the beach and repeat. Thank you Bandara!

Super family friendly hotel with good location”

1)The hotel location is closed to the airport and yet has a quiet surrounding. 2) Hotel has directly access to beach and the quality of the beach surprisingly nice

This hotel is located in Bo Phut which I was recommended by few travel blog as the most kids friendly place. As soon as we got off from the car, our kids were attracted by the kids friendly pool just 1 floor below the reception. We got the ground floor room with nice sun bed right outside of the room, not to mention that it's only 10 steps away from the pool. Also, this hotel got a very nice garden right between the pool and the beach. It is one of the few hotels which a fantastic design of the gardening. They even got a nice pagonda for people to chill and rest. One thing I do like alot about the hotel is the easy access to Fisherman Village. In stead going through the route outside of the hotel, we took our kids to walk along the beach every night. It only took us 10 mins nice walk on the sand and we are right in fisherman village. The good thing about this Bo Phut beach is that since it was managed by various hotels along the way, it was safe to walk along even at night. I would highly recommend one with young children like us to stay there. The only downside is that there are not very kids friendly in term of the bathroom design in the room. ie the sink was too high for my 4 years old boy to reach out the sink to brush his teeth.

Amazing hotel in a perfect location”

We spent four nights at this resort and we weren’t disappointed with our choice. Check-in (with cold towels and cold drinks) was just as perfect as the check-out. We were upgraded to a higher standard room without even asking for it (well done Bandara for a nice treat!). So we had much better view from the balcony and a nice honeymoon bed for our pre-honeymoon vacation. The hotel amazed us with a massive garden pool, perfect for someone who loves to swim and a good size beach pool. Cocktails were really good and the happy hour lasts almost all day long! Who wouldn’t be happy with this deal? Well done again! We also enjoyed our breakfast each morning at the beach restaurant with amazing views over surrounding islands and a very long beach. Food was really good and plentiful. Also the beach food market with live music prepared by Bandara was our favourite (reasonable prices, almost the same as at the Fisherman’s Village!). Thank you to all staff for the good time at Bandara resort!

breathtaking way to recharge and relax”

private villas, location to fisherman's wharf, beach

It is the perfect hotel. On the street, there is a Family Mart, numerous restaurants and foot massage places. You can easily stock up there and not pay hotel prices. In the hotel, the breakfast was delightful, the swimming pools huge, and the beach, perfect. It's not the prettiest beach in Koh Samui, but the water was wonderful, and an elephant came to play every day. About 5 minutes walk up the beach is Fisherman's Wharf- a nightlife area full of bars and restaurants, shops, and on weekends, a night market. Fabulous place to meander. Walk to the end of the wharf, and on the left (street side), you'll find a place called "The Hut" - awesome Thai food and amazing prices. The best part of Bandara, though, is the private villa - outdoor shower and jacuzzi, and a gorgeous plunge pool with private lounge area. Perfect for night times with some drinks from the Family Mart up the way :) Enjoy!

Good and relaxing stay ”

Hi... We had a nice stay in bandara hotel koh samui. We stayed their for 4nights in pool villa. Check-in staff Mr stefan was very helpful,while waiting for room we were offered drinks,they have changing and relaxing area while waiting you for room to be ready. Manager Mr lance assisted us about places to explore and things to do in samui. Hotel comments - Our room was spacious and washroom was neat, bedding was clean, pool was enough for two people. amenities provided are useful and good quality. Room was hygienic. Lot of activities in hotel premises, candle light dinner,barbecue night,dinner by beach,child activities. Room service was nice and at restaurants food is tasty. Hotel breakfast was delicious,everyday different variety. Staff is very polite, happy and approachable. Things to improve, In room they should keep charging point close to bed and multi adopter. Shoe bag kept at closet was chargeable 100bath and it was not mention anywhere until we checkout.

Bandara Escape”

Wonderful pools and landscaped grounds. The bathroom was excellent and the bed linnens were first rate. Service was quite good from our limited exposure to the staff.
Very expensive breakfast at 570 Baht. Any transportation arranged by the hotel is more than twice the price than found on the street. Front desk did not have the accurate info on ferry departure times. They said the ferry only departed at two times. Very little effort in providing meaningful service to the guest. But they did smaile alot! Hotel does not support customer complaints about leasees.

We were were booked on a sailboat day cruise by a shop on the premisis of the hotel near the beach. The rate quoted was 3000 Baht per person. The reservation was then confirmed the next evening for hotel pickup at 7:00am. An another phone call at 5:00pm informed us that the rate had changed to 4200 baht since there were on two people booked. My complaint is if the company that leases space and a building from the Bandara Resort renigues on it's agreement to a Resort guest they should be held responsible and the hoteml should do something to salvage the planned outing. We then could not book another outing because the very late cancellation by this Charter catamaran company. We spoke with the owners who were australian and thought tehy would negotiate the price or something since they obviously failed to honor their price stated by they're own agent at the Bandara resort. It was really frustrating not to sail for our first time and on our first trip to Samui. As you can see my review of the resort is highly influenced by my experience from the little shop in the back that has the Badara signs all over it but is not a part of the hotel, (acording to resort). And there will be no support from the Bandara if it all goes wrong. Samui is way overpriced any way. The resort is beautiful otherwise.

Lovely stay right on the beach”

A lovely resort in a nice surrounding and a very friendly staff

We had a great stay. The resort is located in the family side of Koh Samui, in a quiet environment and almost directly on the beach. There are several lovely swimming pool in the resort, suitable for children as well as adult, some with a direct view on the sea. The beach is very near and offers a lot of sunbeds. There is a bar directly near the pools and beach, and a beach restaurant. The hotel features some activities, like a beach BBQ dinner and a Thai village dinner, both nice. The fishermen's village is also very near with lots of restaurants. The surroundings in the resort are lovely and gardens are well maintained. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is generous and has a lot of variety. We have chosen a villa, which offers a nice value for money. It features a private pool (about 4 square meters) and a private sundeck in a little garden, as well has a funny outside bathtub and shower. The room itself is huge, and the all villa gives a great feeling of privacy. Very nice for a couple. The only downside is that the wifi is not so easy to catch as the villas are located on the sides of the resort. But it works very well around the pools and even on the beach.

Bandara – did anyone say whOOoohoooooo!”

Great Hotel set out - all rooms are centralised around the main pool which is just beautiful. Great Breakfast spread. The rooms are just amazing and the biggest plus for us was the hotel set out backing along the beach with lots of room to relax with great beach front facilities.
The only cons I could mention about the Bandara are the cost of additional leisure facilities such massage etc may be a little pricy compared to those found outside the hotel. The location of this hotel is great but other than the Fishermans Village, there are not many attractions that you could get to by foot. (not a major hurtle given the various modes of transportation or the Bandaras free shuttle service to Chaweng)

This was our second stay with the Bandara and there is little to say other than we loved the Bandara! The staff are very friendly, the reception, pools, restaurants and bars are all great. As far are the rooms (we stayed in the Delux) are great, good size with everything you would possibly need in a hotel. The cleaning services are amazing making you so much happier everytime you return back to your room We booked online the second time round and we got a much much better deal than booking direct which makes it great value for money given the comforts you get. As far as location, this is not in the busy part of Koh Samui so ideal for some quite couple or family time but a close walk to Fishermans village where you have all the restaurants to choose from if you want to leave the resort. More than happy to answer any Q's on our experiences and the Bandara or many stays in Koh Samui -

Peaceful and relaxing holiday in a terrific resort”

Resort had everything you needed or it was nearby, peaceful location, great restaurants nearby.

My 12 day stay at the Bandara Resort was pure bliss! I had booked myself a pool villa for my own privacy and it was definitly worth it. My villa was clean, spacious and had all of the amenities that I required. The resort staff were friendly and were happy to assist in any way possible. The ladies in the spa were fantastic. Special mention to Mit and Ao. The beach bar staff, especially Kong and Big, were great. They were very hospitable and were fun to be around during the 4 hour happy hour. Now what can I say about the buffet breakfast. OMG...it was the best buffet I have ever seen in my life. The choices of foods, whether eastern or western cuisine were plentiful and everything was fresh. I would recommend the Bandara Resort to my friends and family and I will return in the future.

Bandara good value”

nice beachside pool good poolside menu and reasonably priced drinks close to fisherman village free wireless internet connection in room
not many rooms have sea views.

we got a great deal on the price for this hotel from agoda. so it was excellent value. we stayed from 11 to 17 december which is in the rainy season but it never actually rained at all but much of the fishermans village in Bo Phut was closed as many businesses use this period to do repairs and renovations. for us the hotel we great value,the rooms are a little dated bu well maintained and kept very clean. there are two pools with plenty of sunbeds at least for the numbers staying at the time . there is a good snack menu and drinks are reasonably priced, hotel is about 7 mins walk along the beach to the village which has plenty of good value restaurants and shops. it isnt as refined as the anantara but or the bophut resort, both of which are much more costly and spa but isnt that different and is better value than both.

Great service, perfect honeymoon experience”

Great staff, lovely getaway.

after staying at bandara suites in silom, bangkok and having a wonderful experience, we decided to stay at bandara on samui. upon arrival, my new wife and i were greeted with rose petals in the bath, "happy honeymoon" written in flowers on the bed and we also received a fruit platter, bottle of sparkling white and heart-shaped dessert after dinner on the first night. needless to say, we were made to feel quite special. the staff were all very friendly and eager to help, the breakfast buffet was enormous, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the pool areas were a very welcome retreat from the heat. free wifi throughout the hotel was also a plus. we couldn't recommend this place enough. p.s. be sure to try the thai cooking class on a tuesday. the trip to the market with executive chef pamon was a great experience, as was the 3 new recipes that we added to our repertoire.
