I have stayed at Banyan Tree resorts in Bangkok and now Koh Samui and I can't speak highly enough of the staff friendliness and overall amazing experience at these hotels.
The only minor downside was we specifically requested and booked an ocean view room which it could be argued we did have, however the ocean was only really visible through the tree line and on the far left of the room view. We were in Villa A10.
This resort is perfect for a nice getaway vacation with your loved ones. Two pools with an accessible small beach, rooms are nice and resort is very romantic. Not so much to do nearby, so research what you want to do and how you would get there before you book a hotel on the island.

It was a lovely experience, Rocky's is a great Boutique Hotel that will meet your expectations.
The service is more than perfect, everyone is attentive to whatever you need, the staff is friendly and really nice.
Perfect service: cold scented towels are distributed to guests by the pool, fruit sticks, cold water with ice.
the room has some games (like chess, cards..)
You have a game room for adults, a kids area where your kids can play.
Reservations for dinners outside are available cordially in the reception as well as shuttle to town on several timings.
Hotel is very nice we enjoyed our honeymoon. The staff were all very friendly and the facilities were all to a very high standard. Our only complaint would be that the breakfast was not of five star quality. The selection was limited and catered to mainly Asian guests. As Muslims it was extremely difficult with breakfast and we were limited to a continental breakfast each day rather than cooked. I also would recommend you completely segregate your pork products as the chicken and pork sausages were in a container next to one another and looked identical.
Fantastic hotel, brilliant, friendly staff, awesome location. Close to great food and not far from the island's regular haunts. We were able to book the Ocean View Pool Villa of our choice, which made our stay 10/10. The villa was spacious, well designed and made us feel as if we were (almost) alone on the island. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Manathai staff is very friendly and attentive, they really make you feel welcome. The hotel itself is a beautiful old style building. The main buildings are located on mainland side but just across the street on the beach, they have a nice pool with a pool bar and within a walking distance several beach side restaurants. The hotel breakfast is great with good variety of Asian and Western options such as fresh yogurt, freshly baked bread, delicious cold cuts, freshly brewed coffee of your choice. Our stay was very pleasant and relaxing. The room was clean, nicely decorated and quiet.

We loved this place as we loved the comfy sofa couches on the beach near the bar/restaurant. The downside was that one grumpy staff lady was not happy that we bought our coconuts from the Hawkers at 1/3 the price of the hotel and we felt very uncomfortable thereafter
The second-most popular beach on Ko Samui, southeast-facing Lamai Beach is a good alternative to Chaweng Beach if you’re looking for a stretch of sand just off the main drag. “Grandmother” and “Grandfather” Rocks on the south end of the beach were carved by wind and rain into creative shapes, and within their crevasses are inviting turquoise bathing pools.
