The staff feels like an extant ion of the family. That was our 3rd stay here and it feels so good to see the same happy faces. Some employees been around for more than 30 years. Hotel is family owned and the you can feel this in more personal/less “corporate” touches. I hope they don’t lose this after they go through renovation under Banyan Tree management rebranding. The nature/Layout of the property and the Beach are the best among many many top hotels we visited around the World. Whenever we visit a new property when we travel our one the world we alway mesure it up against Tongsai Bay and every time my wife and I agree that the Tongsai is better. This hotel is perfect for people who value natural beauty, private less crowded areas and peaceful relaxing comfort. The only way to get not satisfied, is if you are lookin for glamorous, loud and busy/many people , Vegas like, vibe. That would be a miss ))). It’s everything but it.

Little Gem in Northern Samui
The Tongsai Bay was a great find. Thai owned and run, with an amazing staff who made you feel welcome. Great position with its own private beach, had everything i needed for a fantastic stay. The staff are wonderful - cannot do enough for and it shows that they have great staff retention and loyalty. Food in both restaurants but especially Chef Chom's was superb and the breakfast was just about as good as it gets. The Tongsai Bay will suit all types of traveller and has a personal touch that the bigger brand hotels can't match. The location is excellent in the NE of the Island - close to the airport, Chaweng and Samui town with plenty to see on the doorstep but in a location that's a mini oasis of clam and relaxation. Highly recommend and hope to return one day
