A true gem. Set amongst verdant jungle, this lovely property offers stunning sunset and sunrise views, a rarity on Samui. The villas feel comfortable and roomy without feeling cavernous, privacy is guaranteed via smart design, and the grounds are easily walkable. They have secured a large portion of the secluded beach, and with future plans will make it even more inviting. The staff are top notch; friendly, personable and attentive. The food from the gorgeous On the Rocks isnt just good; it is truly excellent. Their overall commitment to sustainability and community enrichment is genuine. Easily a top choice for Samui.

Barefoot, five star luxury in an eco-conscious resort, where the friendly staff will make you feel like you're staying in a home away from home. The restaurant menus are spectacular and there's a view to match. You'll be torn between spending your time here in your beautiful villa with private pool or enjoying many of the activities and facilities that the hotel has to offer.

Six senses have once again impressed me. Their bedrooms have a rustic feel, basins have been welded out of steel and carved wood makes us the interior and exterior. The rooms are hidden by the overgrown jungle and are all wonderfully camouflaged. The pool area is very comfortable, there are so many hidden places to chill and gaze out to sea. Six senses seek to find the most exclusive and un damaged land out there and they do very well at it.

Six Senses Samui sits perched on the furthermost outcrop at the North of the island and we could not decide on sunrise of sunset for our villas. Vibrant coloured cushions and teak is the predominant theme of this luxury hideaway with its famous Six Senses Spa. We had a fantastic 3 our cooking course where you learn, prepare with the chef some fantastic Thai dishes and if you wish to go out early to the market they will arrange this for you as well.

Six Senses Samui is very much in line with the Six Senses unique style of authenticity. The private villas are luxuriously rustic and being located on a headland they all have fabulous views, although the Hideaway villa overlooks the lush jungle like vegetation rather than the ocean. Although I didn't dine there myself, Dining on the Rocks has the most wonderful views it almost feels like you are on a boat. So even if you don't choose to stay at Six Senses on Koh Samui, make a reservation to dine here one evening! I know I will next time!

Six Senses Samui has a very special atmosphere. Located on the north east tip of Koh Samui, you feel completely removed from the rest of the island in your own corner of serene paradise. The food was fantastic and The Thai Prawn Salad that I had was the perfect balance of flavours and level of spice for my underdeveloped western palate and I have never seen prawns so huge - mouth-watering!

On this popular and buzzing island, Six Senses Samui offers a private and peaceful retreat where you can feel secluded in your own piece of paradise. They offer a serene spa, gym, yoga and aerobics classes, snorkelling and kayaking among other things. The resort remains true to the Six Senses style with that wonderful bare-foot luxury feel. My two favourite things at this property are the fantastic main infinity pool, overlooking the ocean and the Dining On The Rocks restaurant, with the most idyllic back-drop and exquisite food to match. While the majority of the villas enjoy sea views, they do not have direct beach access, but their stretch of beach is not far to reach. The Ocean Front Pool Villa is definitely worth it for the back-drop.

The location of the Six Senses Samui is amazing. It is in a really peaceful spot to the very north of Koh Samui, with beautiful views out to sea. All the villas are spread out on the hillside and the atmosphere is so calm and peaceful and it really feels like a retreat. It is only a 10-minute taxi ride to the fantastic local restaurants of Bo Phut or the bright lights of Chaweng, yet you feel a million miles away.
