worst service staff”

Terrible from the moment I arrived. No aircon in foyer, No nice welcome, just sorry room not ready it will be an hour, what this is at 4pm, unbelievable. Waited in aircon thai restaurant, free cocktail but no alcohol in it! Room very nice. Cannot swim in ocean, too shallow and too much rock and corral. The pool looked good but water was so hot, like soup! Bar staff at pool bar were very bad, so rude, except for the young guy. The cocktail was v.poor and French fries plonked down with a bottle of tomato sauce, no presentation.Main restaurant had no aircon, the Thai restaurant service and food v. poor. Not one smile from any staff at all. Checking out met a woman whom said she thought it was the worst place ever, she was almost in tears, she had to stay 6 more nights. The manager of the hotel needs to be replaced and most of the staff, planks,no one speaks English. The owner of the hotel clearly has no idea! If the room was 500 baht a night I wouldn't go back!! Believe me, don't go.!!

Dear Jamie, We are very sorry your experience failed to meet your expectations and that we were unable to make you feel it represented value during your stay. We would like to explain that in many Southeast Asian countries, it is quite common to have an open-air design to let the sea breeze in and have a more tropical feeling than a closed-off restaurant. Our pool is currently warm due to the extreme Thai summer conditions as you have noticed the weather has been above 35 degrees every day since before the Songkran festival, we apologize we cannot control the pool temperature but there are nice refreshing places to swim in the sea in front of our resort and we also provide our guests with free shuttle service to Chaweng beach. We would like to apologize that we could not provide you with our usual high-standard hospitality on your holiday. Please contact us as we would like to make amends for this disappointment and hope that to welcome you again in the future. The Management Team

Dear Kihyeung, Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience with us. We sincerely apologize for failing to meet your expectations. Regarding our location we advertise ourselves to be an ideal location for family and romantic holidays away from the hustle and bustle of tourist crowds. Because of our quiet location, we provide lots of daytime activities for guests to do within our property such as cooking classes, vegetable carving classes, sports activities, theme nights and take our guests out for waterfall and temple day trips. Our pool water is cleaned and checked up every day according to the PH levels standard. However we did have an emergency situation from Jan 30th-Feb 3rd due to extremely hot weather affecting chlorine levels and causing the water to appear green. It took a bit of time for the color to re-regulate after treatment so we can assure everyone that it is clean and safe to swim in and it is very hygienic and pure. Best regard, Management Team

We had a wonderful and relaxing one-week vacation.”

Friendly staff, delicious cuisine, great pools.

We would highly recommend this resort, especially for couples who are looking for a relaxing and comfortable stay in Koh Samui. Although the beach is not suited for swimming, the pools at the Mai Samui are fantastic for swimming and sunbathing. There are sun beds and umbrellas by the beach with beautiful views of the water and mountains in the distance. The staff have an extremely positive attitude, are approachable and friendly. They greeted us with big smiles and were more than happy to help. For visitors who want to shop or go to the beach in Chaweng, there is a hotel shuttle bus that leaves three times a day. The food at the resort was very good and the Thai cuisine was simply exceptional. They have special evenings by the beach for seafood, Thai etc. They also offer cooking classes! There is a well-equipped business centre and the spa is worth trying :) We were very satisfied with our choice.

Holidays just like you want them at MAI Samui!”

The resort is very new, The personal is highly kind/welcoming/competent, the rooms are just great

I have been living and traveling in Asia since 10 years and MAI Samui is probably one of the best resort we have stayed at. It is newly build so all facilities are new and very clean. I have brought my girlfriend there for my proposal. It is perfect for a romantic couples trip or family holidays. The rooms are very well decorated. We have got a room with both sea view and pool view. The Resort is divided in 2 parts divided by a small road. One is located around the pool and near the private beach. The other part is on the other side of the small road. I preferred to stay around the pool where the restaurants are also located. There are 2 restaurants (thai food and Western food). You can easily book a motorbike at the reception. It s the most convenient way to visit Koh Samui. The location is really good, it is far from the crowd of Chaweng beach and it is near Bophut Beach where you can have excellent seafood in the fishermen's village. MAI Samui is a a very good choice for perfect holidays!

Perfect”

Most beautiful resort I have ever stayed at. the pictures don't do it justice!

I can't fault Mai Samui and would go back in a heart beat. I guess the only negative would be the fact it isn't amongst the more populated areas in Koh Samui (some would see this as a positive if wanted to just go and relax). With that said the hotel provides complimentary transfers to Chaweng (the most popular beach in Samui). We went on a few tours and it turned out this hotel was close to the port where we got our boat from so we we're pleased with that. The resort itself was simply stunning. The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained (we saw staff checking ph levels in pools, sweeping the sand and doing other general upkeep tasks on a regular basis). Staff we're amazing, they were so helpful and attentive and made our stay one I will never forget. The three restaurants were great, the buffet breakfast was the best I have ever had and the Thai coffee is a must try!!

Beautiful 5 star hotel...so relaxing!”

The room was beautiful and the staff were very helpful

Mai Samui is a beautiful hotel where you are forced to sit back and relax because of its private location. The staff helped us arrange day trips out as its a bit far to catch a taxi and explore yourself. I have stayed at 5 star properties all over the world and Mai Samui has earned every one of its stars unlike many others around Koh Samui! Do be aware that it is a good 30min drive to any other bars, restaurants on the island but the hotel has a taxi and shuttle service. We moved to Chewang Beach for the end of our stay for a bit more atmosphere but compared to Mai Samui it was more expensive, a dump, dirty and the service left more than to be desired. A great relaxing stay!!

Fantastic but a little out the way........”

We were wowed by this hotel, it exceeded our expectations, rooms were beautiful and well equipped and very clean, surrounding idyllic, staff fantastic

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mai Samui. It is a very peaceful hotel and spa in beautiful surroundings. The rooms were luxurious and had everything down to flip flops for us to wear to the beach. Staff were exceptional, very friendly and efficient. Always smiling :) the food was delicious, buffet breakfast always had a great variety of both western and eastern options and the food in the restaurants was outstanding although it is expensive compared to the rest of the island.The views from our room were stunning. The only down side I would say is that the complimentary shuttle only runs until 13:00 outbound and 16:00 inbound and taxis are very expensive on the Island. We did hire a scooter and you can get round the island in an hour and a half but I think that it would benefit guests to have the option of the shuttle of an evening and also maybe additional stops rather than just Chaweng as The Fishermans Village in Bophut is nice to go to both during the day and night. I would give this hotel a 8.5 out of 10 as it is but a definite 10 is the shuttle service was extended

Wow! What an amazing stay. When can we go back?”

The genuinely friendly staff, the relaxed atmosphere and the supberb facilities and rooms.

This is hands down, without question, the best 5 star resort we've had the pleasure to stay in. We spent 5 nights at Mai Samui over the 2014 New Year period and although the resort was fully booked it never felt busy, the staff handled everything with a smile and a calm attitude, the rooms and grounds were generous and cleaned meticulously each day, the food and beverages were far above average for Thailand (especially the breakfasts), the spa treatment we received was sublime, the surroundings and the decor was stunning. Would visit again without hesitation. Our only complaint was a faucet that fell off and that was fixed within a few hours of us notifying staff.

Beautiful Hotel w/ Friendly Staff”

The Pool, the Thai Food, and the Quiet Location

We enjoyed our stay at Mai Samui immensely. The pool is massive and excellent, the Thai food was very good, and the location is very quiet and removed. The have a beach side bar which is a great place to lay/hang out. Staff is really friendly and mostly can speak English. Rooms are top notch. A few cons: some oddities at the hotel (charged us to use the shuttle, didn't have enough towels by the pool, refused to help us get a taxi and insisted we use their shuttle to the airport), the beach is not great on this side of the island, and the location makes going out to eat difficult. Also I do not go to an island resort for the WiFi, but it was particularly terrible. All-in-all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this is a great secluded resort for relaxing in the sun and by the pool.

Just wonderful, in every way”

Service, ammenities, beachfront location

If you want to stay somewhere comfortable, quiet, and relaxing, this is the place. If you need access to the busy outside world, stick to Chaweng, on the other side of the island. This was the best stay we had in Thailand (out of 5 hotels) – we found ourselves comparing every other hotel to this one. And with the deal we got on Agoda, an amazing value. The location is excellent - right on a quiet, private beach with gorgeous sunset views and no obnoxious vendors. The service is impeccable. Rooms are large, beautiful, clean, with fast-working AC and huge comfy beds, and I never heard any noise from neighboring rooms or outside. They each have minibars with free bottled water and in-room safe. The décor is modern and colors pleasant – wood floors, woven rugs, rain shower, deep bathtub that could fit 4 people, soft chaise lounges in the room and on the balcony. The pool is gigantic and never crowded, and pool bar happy hour prices aren’t bad, though food is a bit overpriced and the secluded location means you’re forced to eat at the resort pretty much 24/7. Breakfast buffet was excellent – delicious French press coffee, made-to-order waffles, omelettes, smoothies. I often ate so much I didn’t even need lunch. They provide standard size beach towels in your room as well as large towels on the beach for the lounge chairs. The hotel offers a free shuttle to/from Chaweng 3x/day if you want to shop (the beach is super crowded and the water is rough – nothing special). Wifi at the resort is free, but very spotty – wish they’d had some computers for guest use. It would also be helpful to have some convenience items available like sunscreen, OTC medications, etc., because you have to cab to the nearest 7-11. My only big complaint is that they wouldn’t allow me to call my travel insurance company (a free collect number) without charge after I got a bug bite on my eye causing it to swell shut, and there are no nearby payphones. Fortunately Benadryl worked within 24hrs.

Great resort in quiet location”

Large, nicely laid out rooms and fantastic pools

Positives: -Great room. Plenty of space, nice amenities, huge bathroom with a gigantic bathtub. We were in the E block on the ground floor which allowed for super easy access right into the secondary pool. -The pools at Mai Samui are the property's centerpiece. Beautiful, well kept, and easy access from all rooms. -Mai employees were all very sweet and nice -Quiet location away from the craziness of Chaewang...very nice if that's what you're looking for. Negatives: -The food is not very good. The western food is pretty bad with the exception of the grill items. That didn't surprise me but I was disappointed to find that the Thai food was also subpar. -The room service menu is limited. You will get bored quickly if you have young children and need to order dinner in every night while they're sleeping. Overall Mai Samui is a beautiful property with good service. It provides great value for money. The food is the only area keeping this resort from being truly great.

An experience to remember”

First class service, very well designed and maintained rooms

The staff consistently provided impressive service. It is hard to find a hotel where staff are all uniformly well-trained and provided great service. Attention to detail was probably one of the best I've ever came across. Hotel facilities and rooms are well designed with high-quality furnishings. This place is 5-star and more! I used to run a boutique hotel myself for a short while, and that experience made me instinctively scrutinise all aspects of a hotel wherever I stayed. I have to say Mai Samui was really impressive. I will recommend this place to all my friends, and be back here again if I can, so I hope Mai Samui keep up the good work!

Nice and comfortable resort with a dirty beach ”

Kids Zone, Pool area on the beach (and around the resort)

We stayed at Mai Samui for 4 nights having a 2 year old daughter. The Resort it self is very nice and clean, the rooms (we had deluxe) was great and with nice view over the pool and the ocean. They had a Kids Zone to play (you have to supervise) and a nice gym enough to do the most important exercises. The staff was very helpful and kind, they did everything for you. The negative side is that it is a bit off, Shuttle bus to Chaweng 3 times a day, until lunch the latest and back at 1630, so you couldn't spend an afternoon in Chaweng. Private taxi was 1000 THB. The food was not as good as it should be in a 5 star resort, the menu was really small and on the beach side they only served "International Buffe" or somedays "Steaks", they had a Thai restaurant but as told, small menu to choose from, but it tasted good. The Beach was very dirty and it was low tide from early morning to late evening so you could actually not swin in the ocean. That was very negative. Overall it is a good resort...
