Reviews about pool villas at this Koh Samui resort:

"We had a villa with two private pools, which we really liked. The view of the sea was unbeatable. The size of the accommodation was very generous and very clean / well maintained."

"Our room, which included a living room and private pool and Jacuzzi, was very spacious and had a fair view of the beach in front. By the way, a differential of the hotel is that it has its own private beach, in an area that also has two pools, resting area and a restaurant/bar (Fish Tales). All the rooms/villas are spread all over the large area of the hotel, with well-cared vegetation all around, which gives us a sense of exclusivity."

"Superb facilities and room, our villa with a sea view was surrounded by lush greenery and had a beautiful panorama looking out over the bay."

"I have booked Tongsai Seaview Pool Villa. When we entered our villa i was amazed with the set up and how spacious the space is, starting from the breath-taking view of the infinity pool, the setup of the Jacuzzi and furniture around the outer area, and ending up with so amazing set up of the room inside."
