July 2017, Location : Koh Samui, Thailand
I stayed at Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa. It’s in Koh Samui, Surattani, Thailand. I stayed for four days and three nights
Renaissance Koh Samui Resort and Spa is a luxury resort, part of the Marriott Hotels Group. The resort is located in Lamai beach, Koh Samui. You can fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui directly (Bangkok Airways or Thai Airways) but I chose to take the night train from Bangkok to Surattani and then got the ferry to Koh Samui.
I arrived at 11 am and it was too early for check-in. The staff welcomed us with ice-cream and cold towel. The lobby here is open air and after long journey it was a bit too hot and sweaty for us when had to stay in open – air lobby while we waited for the room to be ready.
Renaissance Koh Samui has 4 restaurants, Banana Leaf, Tawan, Tapas and Pool bar. We tried the food at Banana Leaf, Tawan and Pool Bar. All of the restaurants made very good food even very good Thai food, they can cook Thai food for Thai people very well. At Banana Leaf and Tawan you can have sea view while eating. As we are club marriott members card the price was cheaper and worth it.
The resort has a main pool that is next to the beach and it has many sunbeds and some cabana beds. Their were enough for the hotel guests. The beach here is good and has clear water but the sea is full of rocks. The resort has kayak’s and paddle boards for guests.
We stayed in the garden pool villa room. The villa is decorated in Balinese style. It has a queen size very comfortable bed. The pillows here were so comfortable! It had a big sofa in the room which you can use as a bed if you like.
It has a separate shower room and toilet room, it seemed like it has plug pool in shower room but I did not try it. All amenities here had a good aroma were from the high quality “Tokyo Milk” brand.
The villa had a small private pool with jacuzzi and two sunbeds for you to sunbathe. The villa has so much space, you can hangout with your friends or your family here. We ordered room service and played music like we had pool party.
Renaissance Koh Samui Resort and Spa is a luxury resort, for me it is perfect !! The room was so good, all the staff were so nice and helpful. Especially Khun Woody one of the staff at Banana Leaf, he was so kind and professional. Also the navigator staff was so helpful, tried so hard to organize our trip. All the food I tried was so good. I enjoyed every second while I stayed here. I recommend it to you all!!
I have no negative comments about this resort! 100% we will comeback again next year.
