5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location right on the beach, good vibes
great location, right the beach, with very nice views. The hotel is funky (the rooms are old ship containers for example), but confortable, clean and extremely friendly. The restaurant within the hotel serves good Thai food at ridiculously low prices, and the tables are directly on the beach (your feet in the sand, under the trees). I stayed there quite a few times, and thought it was quite a good deal.
Stayed 1 night in Nov 2019

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nice, but overpriced accommodation and restaurant
The concept is nice, containers turned into rooms. Rooms are spacious, good bed, good AC, good wifi. Horrible, outdated bathrooms which feel like it's outside because of the gaps between walls and ceiling. Insects and especially mosquitoes are everywhere in bathroom. Lock on room does not feel very safe. Location is near pier, but for other restaurants or activities it's a bad location. Quite a walk to other places and there are no lights along the road so dangerous to walk anywhere in dark. It kinda forces you to eat at the Think & Retro restaurant. Prices in restaurant are too high. Overall very overpriced. Payment with credit card went wrong. Machine kept saying it couldn't charge so I ended up booking and paying online with Expedia. Later that night I saw on my bank App that I ended up paying 5 times! Had to call my bank from Thailand to rectify this, not something you want to worry about while on holiday..

Peaceful Beach Hotel w/ Eco Vibe in your own Oasis
So glad I moved this this spot after being in Mae Nam. Peaceful, beautiful beach that's not overrun with people. Even the streets leading to Lipa Noi are quiet and not overdeveloped. You can see the beach and tropical plants right from your room, wake up and relax at the cafe. Truly a perfect place for relaxation. Live music (but not raucous) on some nights and a gorgeous sunset as it faces the west. It is eco-certified in a sense of the utilities and the reuse of shipping containers for building materials. Love the vibe. Cute cats wander through if you like cats, but everything's open and airy (so you dont have to like cats haha). Note- the water of Samui is not that clear, and this area was the same -- not the fault of the hotel, I just wouldnt recommend Samui for the water/swimming in Gulf. This place is a breath of fresh air compared to the cookie cutter north and east of Samui. The only thing I ask is the hotel not carry advertisements for the tiger and elephant attractions on Samui-- besides cruel, they are often associated with wildlife crime. It would complete the mission of the hotel to not recommend those kinds of tourist activities. For the most part they advertise kayaking and snorkeling- much better! And you can kayak from this beach. There are also fishing boats (long boats) here- which are not common to see on other beaches on Samui.

Unique bungalows on beach front
Fantastic first two nights in koh samui..after travelling around Thailand for our honeymoon this was the first place to up grade our room for free to a sea view, which when you wake up in the morning is amazing! Breakfast was great on the beach and the menu and cocktails were perfect! The only bad thing was that we only booked 2ngts could of stayed longer the beach and sea was so clean and it was a quiet and tranquil side of samui which was still unspoilt from tourist....definately a good find.
