I would recommend staying in the Sala Pool villas as these are very light and airy and the bathrooms have mosquito protection, especially around the deep round bath. The beach and pool are lively and Sala Beach Bar is airy and perfect to kick back for a few hours. In the evenings, the Pangaea Restaurant opens up serving a huge range of international foods.

We only visited Sala Samui but loved their pared down villa pool suites and clean white lines. Walking down the beach and beach bar and restaurant I stopped to take a few pictures of a small child in the childrens pool. Finding his parents to ask if I might use the photos I got chatting and found the Australian family live locally, have a half price membership card into two of the most salubrious hotels in Koh Samui and yet they spend every Sunday at Sala Samui as the ambience, beach and beach front pool and restaurant are so wonderful! Having their Seafood Pad Thai and chilled Rose overlooking the bay was certainly a good reason to see why they love it so much!

A very white resort with a distinctive European feel, it is quite small so you can walk everywhere so no relying on buggies to get you from A to B which you often find at the bigger resorts so you feel much more independent and spontaneous. I really liked the fact it had lots of different seating areas, almost like mini outdoor lounges. The two big pools were great, one was more of a lap pool whilst the other more of dip one. The restaurant had a great location around the pool and on the beach, there was a live guitarist when I was there which created a nice evening atmosphere as we tucked into the delicious seafood buffet. One of the cons was that upon entering the sea it is a bit rocky, but head further right and you can avoid this. Ideal option if you are on a smaller budget as it has a great location and a casual atmosphere but is not without luxury.

Sala Samui has a very special atmosphere and as a boutique property it never feels too full or too large. The crisp clean lines and minimalist details give a very relaxed but elegant feel that I fell in love with. The food here was delicious but what really stood out to me was the private villas complete with pools which were absolutely beautiful and the perfect use of indoor and outdoor space, giving a really fresh feel.

Sala Samui is the quintessential Asian boutique property, which truly shows how far your money goes in this part of the world. The Pool Villas there are such good value and truly gorgeous self-contained rooms, with total privacy and your own little plunge pool. On top of that, guests can benefit from two beautiful pools right on the beach and an outstanding restaurant that is one of our favourite on the islands. Super luxurious, the Sala Samui is not, however for what you get for your money, this is a really special little hotel that gets great feedback.
