Hotel Review : Sheraton Samui Thailand

Sheraton Koh Samui

We’re at the very end of our Koh Samui trip and our last two nights we decided to visit our third SPG hotel on this trip which was Sheraton Samui! This hotel is totally different from the other two hotels we stayed [Le Meridien and Vana Belle] as it’s definitely a family oriented hotel! Let’s get right into it!

Location

Sheraton Koh Samui

Sheraton Samui is located on Chaweng Noi Beach. The hotel is about a 15-20 minute drive from the airport [Airport Taxi’s will usually charge around 500-600 THB]. There is a Family Mart and pharmacy located near the hotel so if you need to grab any snacks or personal amenities you can do so in a very short walking distance. However to get around to Central festival or to any attractions in Samui you are going to have to ride a taxi which they usually will charge a flat fee. Surrounding the hotel is also a few other restaurants unfortunately we can’t recommend any of them as we had all our meals at the hotel.

Check-In

Sheraton Koh Samui

We arrived at Sheraton Samui via a driver from our previous hotel at Le’ Meridien. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a warm heart welcome from their staff who knew us immediately by our name. Check-In process went by smoothly with delicious welcome drinks and cool towel. The person taking us around was very helpful and carefully explained all the functions and features of the facilities around the hotel and in the room. What I liked most about her was she was very friendly to our daughter and seemed to genuinely want to show us around.

Room – Deluxe Ocean view

We were lucky to get a room upgrade to the Deluxe Ocean view! The room is a 49 Sqm with a King Size Bed with standard features that you’d expect at hotel/resort. The bathroom had a bathtub along with partitions that opened and closed which would let people from the bedroom see what was happening in the bathroom and vice versa 😉  Tone color of the room was decorated in earth tones with tint of ocean turquoise colors. The room also had a large size day bed that most likely could sleep another person. What we liked the most about the room was that it had balcony that had a nice view of the sea. Overall, the room gives you a very warm welcoming feeling.

Cleaning

Cleaning was done well and nicely everything you’d expect was done properly. Towels, bathrobes and bedding were all changed on a daily basis. It also had turndown service which was done as expected.

 

Service

Sheraton Koh Samui

Overall service was great and when request for a buggy there was no hesitation and everyone greeted us with a smile. People around were generally helpful and willing to give us directions and on top of that willing to take us to the different locations around hotel [we did get lost a few times ;)] Everyone just seemed to want to help us which was a really good feeling to have and made us feel very comfortable.

Food

Sheraton Koh Samui

Buffet breakfast is amazing with huge variety of food western, asian, cheese, salads, eggs benedict you name it! The breakfast was busy at peak times as it is always with every hotel but what we really appreciated at this hotel was again the staff that was very helpful and friendly. They would always ask right on spot if we needed a baby chair and would always have baby plate and utensils available.

This also is the same for both restaurants Long Talay and Monkey Bar which has different settings and located next to each other. They serve a mixture of Thai, Western and Asian dishes. There are some differences in terms of menus from both restaurants but overall you can order anything you want from the two. We recommend if you are staying there for a few nights to try out both to get a different vibe as you can see in our pictures.

Pool

Sheraton Koh Samui

There are two pools here one located near the lobby which we didn’t get to use and the main pool which is literally on the beach! The main pool itself is uniquely designed to feel as if it were truly apart of the beach itself with sandy colored rocks uniquely placed in the pool. What’s also to be noted that there is also a kids pool with fun features such as water guns and even a water barrel dump. The features of the pool itself most likely will satisfy everyone in your family.

Beach

Sheraton Koh Samui

Sheraton Samui as mentioned above is located on Chaweng Noi Beach, which honestly is one of the most beautiful and clean public beaches that I have seen. On a bright sunny day you’ll find white sand, blue skies, and beautiful clear blue and turquoise waters. The beach front area in this part of Chaweng Noi might be a bit busier and might be as clean as it is next to a beach club which opens throughout the night. Therefore you can expect to see people passing by and selling souvenirs.

The hotel also has lots of sunbeds across the beachfront which will give a great view of just watching the tides and beautiful sand of Samui.

Activities

Sheraton Koh Samui

There is lots and lots of activities to do at Sheraton Samui. At the end we would definitely call this a true family friendly hotel. The hotel features a spa, fitness, private tennis court and a truly amazing kids club. The kids club here has several activities for kids with two rooms and a full size outdoor playground for your children [not to forget they also have a kids pool]. The kids club is staffed with friendly and well trained staff who are there to also baby sit your kids 🙂

Check-Out

Same as check-in everything went extremely smooth. Everyone greeted us with smiles and made sure that we were taken care of. They provided water and towels and did everything that they could to make us feel very welcomed from start to end. The hotel provided us with transportation back to the airport too with a metered taxi which cost us less than 300 THB.

Conclusion

Sheraton Koh Samui

Sheraton Samui is definitely a great hotel for families and kids! It would also work great for couples that are looking for a hotel that has a lot of things happening around it like water sports activities and bars. The price range heel’s service is definitely up to par! If you’re looking for a fun place for the kids this will be your choice! re is definitely a lot less than some of the other hotels in the area but make no mistake this hot
