|Summary of 16 reviews :||
The Poppies Samui is a tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment and is situated at the southern end of Chaweng beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area. The bungalows are nestled in fantastic tropical gardens and furnished in a modern Thai style. All have a private terrace which is surrounded by lush greenery. A short walk leads to the pool with natural rocks and the well-known restaurant offers Thai and international cuisine and a great wine selection. The Poppies Spa offers a range of treatments such as massage or facial treatment for your relaxation and rejuvenation.
We enjoyed our stay at Poppies, the staff were warm, friendly and helpfull. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The restaurant food and staff were excellent. We would have no hesitation in recommending this resort.
No problems at all with the booking service. All went quite smoothly. We have already recommended using Sawadee.com to friends visiting Thailand and we will continue to use them ourselves. Thank you.
Perfect stay!! Poppies offers perfect sevice and great location, it is definately worth the money. The rooms are beautifull and set into green jungle just right at the beach, wifi is available in all rooms. The staff is absolutely friendly, we have seen a lot of luxury hotels but none did top this service. We had really bad luck with the weather, so everybody did the best to make our stay comfortable.. e.g. by free cocktails and snacks in the evening. The pool boy was very kind as well, you always get fresh towels, free drinking water (and friendly smile). Room service was excellent as well- the room was made up twice a day, everything was absolutely clean, the fruit basket was filled up twice a day as well.. a great management and service in every aspect! The location is perfect, you will find a very silent and charming resort - city life just in front of the door. We can really recommend Poppies
I agree with those who have say that poppies is a little paradise. Frindly, smily and superefficient staff. 24 cottages scattered in a wanderful little tropical garden. A very relaxing place full of peace.I love it.
perfect as usual
it is alway a pleasure to come back to Poppies
I would highly recommend Poppies. First class service. Beatifull setting, comfortable bungalows and superb Beach. A great place for a getaway.
Staff were beyond 5 star! Food was amazing, cottages beautiful, and the small touches were fantastic... staff remembering specials items you wanted at breakfast, beach staff setting up your regular chair on the beach every day, and the regular treats and special notes left on the pillow every night were wonderful. Food was amazing, and the boutique style and small size of the resort was perfect! The trash on the beach was the only down side, but the staff swept regularly to try and keep up with it.
We were a family of four, with two kids under 6. Obviously this resort has mostly couples staying there, endulding in this great place, but it worked fantastic for us as well; great service, nice pools, the location by the beach and cottages. It is nice and quiet, garden beautiful and everyone helpful. Only draw back for us was the restaurant menu which is a bit pricy for a light lunch, especially with kids. If returning to Koh Samui, we would definitely stay here again!
Always works great
Absolutely my favourite hotel in Thailand.
The most fantastic hotel I ever stayed. Location, rooms, personnel - everything on highest level.For children perfect place to rest and to play on the seaside. Beach is very clean. During all our stay we never closed the room - the security level is the best I ever met.
We had changed the hotel after two days stay at the other hotel. Mr. Tom from Sawadee was very helpful in organizing everything and transferring money to the new one.
Great facilities, nice pool, amazing restaurant. Downsides are - can t get useful tourism info from staff, don t order anything incl. taxi from the hotel as it is 200% overcharged.
We loved this hotel! GREAT service. We are planning to come back here. The food was great and the personel was the best we have ever experienced on our trips to Thailand.
The Poppies is a very good and delightful experience. Very good breakfast with high servicelevel, excellent restaurant with good prices. Bungalows with high standard. Perfect location on the beach with very high service also here! We would certainly recommend Poppies and would ourselves return if possible.
Booking worked OK
A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994 as Koh Samui most exclusive boutique hideaway.
A crystal clear free form swimming pool with natural rock formations, and a sparkling Jacuzzi lie between the gardens and the sea.
Poppies restaurant is now firmly established as the leading restaurant on the island, where you can dine under the stars overlooking the beach or in the magnificent Ayuthaya-style teak pavilion beside the pool.
The beach itself is completely coral and stone free so the swimming conditions and visibility (subject to weather) are of the highest quality. Poppies Samui is owned and managed by an established team of caring and experienced professionals from UK, Eire, Thailand and Indonesia (Bali).
Getting to Koh Samui has never been easier or quicker thanks to Bangkok Airways, who exclusively operate frequent daily flights from and to Bangkok (domestic terminal Don Muang Airport), Singapore, Hua Hin, Phuket and Krabi with a fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing 717 and ATR aircraft. Koh Samui airport is regarded as one of the most uniquely charming airports in the world.
