1.Amari Koh Samui hotel ⭐⭐⭐
Recently refurbished and looking great.Large swimming pool and beachfront location.located in a quieter section of North Chaweng beach, but within walking distance of restaurants, nightlife and shops.luxury family duplexes are ideal for families.
2.Ammatara Pool Villa hotel Koh Samui ⭐⭐⭐
Unparalleled opulence, exceptional beach, exclusive but convenient.Overlooking the ocean, the gardens and/or pool, they contain one or two bedrooms, but the promised «sea views» can be distant or obstructed for the most part.Thai style villas are either luxurious or striking; it’s hard to decide. The main pool is magnificent, with bridges and endless borders, but the open spaces are filled with statues and buildings of unpolluted purpose. With a perfectly raked golden sand beach, it is located in a low profile area of Lamai beach, one of the most popular areas of the island.
3.Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Elegant, excellent facilities, smaller than most and very suitable for families.The rooms are similar, with only sea views (upper floors) and really different tropical gardens (at ground level). they are in low level blocks, with windows leaning towards the ocean, although, surprisingly, some do not have a functional balcony. separate and elevated, many of the suites overlook the beach with sea views and direct access to the beach. the infinity pool is magical, in the shape of a lagoon and next to the beach, with «islands» of palm trees, while the beach offers white sands and calm waters.
4.Banana Fan Sea Resort Koh Samui ⭐⭐⭐
A good mid-range resort in the middle section of Chaweng beach. Among the many rooms, villas, suites and bungalows in a narrow block, only a few have beautiful sea views.Some of the superior rooms are located in a poky area near the lobby, while most are set among the gardens, and all are large, spacious and lovingly decorated with Thai influences.in groups of four facing the gardens, the bungalows are smaller, more like a functional motel inside, and the balcony can offer glimpses of the sea.Most of the villas are terraced, but they are still stacked, so one balcony can directly face another in the garden path.next to the main pool by the beach there is a children’s splash area and two hot tubs.
5.Bandara Resort & Spa hotel Koh Samui ⭐⭐⭐
Ideal, comfortable and decent location for families.Amongst the extensive gardens and fig tree groves between the main road and the beach, the accommodation is in two separate areas, but neither has direct sea views. The villas are very secluded behind high walls and have a splendid swimming pool and elegant sunken bath flanked by private gardens, but there is too much concrete and not enough colour for my taste.The complex offers some limited facilities for children, and after substantial renovations in 2017, there is a greater focus on families.And the photogenic beach has wonderful sand and sloping palm trees.
6.Banyan Tree Lamai, Koh Samui ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great views, fantastic pools, private beach, good restaurants.the perfect marriage of luxury and seclusion.the restaurants and nightlife of Lamai are within easy driving distance.
