Tongsai Bay is a fabulous resort, we booked a seaview room in the main hotel but were ugraded to a seaview cottage which was very nice,it was nice hearing the sea every minute of teh day along with the beautiful sunrises. The staff is very friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to make things perfect for you. The resturants had very nice Thai and Western food choices. The pool was wonderful, our 4 yr old had a great time learning to swim. Only negative comment is that the beach is grainy and hard on the feet, but this is out of their control. The best part of Tongsai Bay is its remote location, it very quiet and a peaceful place to relax, nightlife is a short 10 min drive (400baht) away. Planning to return next year.
very relaxing and amazing atmosphere, great place to stay on Koh Samui, private beach and dinner was great
Just unbelievable! Staff are amazing, the location has to be seen to be believed... I could go on and on. By far the nicest hotel on the island
Very efficient and had no problems whatsoever. Will definately use again when returning to Thailand.
Simply amazing. The staff are perfect, the location is perfect, the service is perfect, the food is perfect, and the resort s operations are perfect. The most fantastic stay I ve had anywhere, ever.
After lots of research booked Tongsai as thought it was very good value for money. We were not disappointed. Had sea view villa with own pool that was FANTASTIC (4 poster day bed, outside double bath, sun loungers and totally private) and it was still cheaper than Six Senses basic! Hotel staff fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The little touches made Tongsai really special eg bottle of bubbly on our 25th anniversary, fruit basket stocked regularly, freshly baked biscuits every day along with an afternoon snack and evening sweets! Pool staff were unobtrusively attentive proving constant iced water and minty fresh cold towels! Private beach although fine shingle was beautiful and kayaks always available. Restaurant Food great although prices high compared to local basic restaurants. Local restaurants are a 15 to 20 minute walk away (tourch supplied in villa) or a short taxi ride which hotel are happy to arrange (equivalent to about £2). Definitely 5 star and a hotel we will recommend to our friends. Thank Tongsai for a great stay.
This hotel is amazing.beautiful rooms, attentive staff, great food,.stunning beach.
A well deserved 2012 Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor. Our stay at Tongsai Bay clearly exceeded our (very high) expectations on most aspects. Our cottage suite had fabulous seaviews and was meticulously serviced throughout our stay, despite the hotel being full (thank you Mr Kiat for the upgrade). Thai Restaurant (chef chom) proved excellent and we were remarkably treated by restaurant staff. Highly recommended.
A seamless process throughout.
Good service, very good location, nice beach. Only 2 restaurants- not enough for guests.Very friendly and helpful staff and management.I really enjoyed staying there.
I worried a bit about the full payment in advance. I would prefer partially pre-payment and full payment on arrival
the location is good as it is far from the down town noise and a real private place. srvice is also good though some of the facilities are becoming quite out dated.
very nice hotel. very quiet. we stayed at the sea front cottage and found the romm very comfortable. food is good. friendly staff. private beach is nice, but the sea was not calm enough. not worth to go for the beach from Turkey.
first time used it. efficient and worked well
very very nice!
This resort is a honeymooner s paradise if quiet pampering times is what you are after. definitly 5 star with the service, and the staff are so friendly and kind. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. Nothing is ever a problem and staff are always happy to help. Beach does have very coarse sand but does not stop using beach and is not harsh on the feet. Restaurant food is amazing with moderate pricing. We stayed in one of the cottage suites which has recently been renovated. My wife and i were amazed with the size of the split level cottage and views are breath taking. The resort is massive and there are golf buggies to take you around.Some of the walks to the suites can be tiring as they are situated on hill sides and have some steep inclines. Main part of samui is a 300b trip and about 15 min. Overall well worth the stay.
The Tongsai Bay is splendidly located in Northeastern Samui. Every room is adorned with a spacious terrace and an open-air facilities highlighting on a bath-with-a-view feature, under the concept of Great Outdoor Living. The resort truly epitomizes a perfect getaway among nature with the personal touch of being owner-managed and staffs friendliness.
