The Tongsai Bay, Koh Samui

The resting area and bathrooms were modern and built for two adults to have enough space to get ready at the same time. Every detail in the room was thought out and guests will have every need met. If you’re a picky sleeper, they even have a choice of pillow.

The hotel staff is as friendly as they are helpful. Throughout the resort the rooms are tidied up twice a day and mid-day snacks, fresh fruits and ice are complimentary.

We each had the pleasure of a 90 minute Thai massage at the hotel’s spa. The spa is extremely charming with an entranceway that makes you feel as if you are stepping into a jungle with its decora­tive waterfall and pond. Upon entering, the spa manager explained their offer in detail, including the extent of the massage, along with our choices of oils (hot or room temperature) and fragrances (6 choices). The massage itself was delightful and relaxing.

At night, we had dinner at the resort’s restaurant located right on the beach. The sound of the waves crashing into the shore was soothing and made the romantic ambiance all that better. To get a true experience of what the restaurant had to offer, we asked the manager for his recommendations and he did not disappoint. The fried calamari and scallops were both excellent choices for appetiz­ers. As for the main course, the grilled sea bass was meaty, fresh and very tasty. The Australian steak and chips was cooked to per­fection and can certainly fill even the hungriest of guests. Desert was a traditional Thai delicacy, sticky mango rice. Turns out it was mango season, the fruit was tender and sweet, simply delicious!

The Tongsai Bay resort went above and beyond our expectations, it was definitely one the highlights of our trip in Thailand.tongsai-bay-1
