Rocky’s Boutique Resort Koh Samui
Rocky’s Boutique Resort was our first stop on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in Thailand. We booked this resort because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor and stayed there for 5 nights in July 2012. The resort is gorgeous, with beautiful villas and bungalows, tropical gardens and lots of hidden places. It is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels we’ve ever stayed at. The location is perfect if you want to be close to the center of Lamai and it is easy to get there with the resort’s free shuttle service.
Rocky’s Boutique Resort is a hidden gem in the tropical island of Koh Samui. The property is spotlessly clean and full of green plants, flowers, and cute little details. It provides a romantic and laid-back atmosphere, you can relax by the pool or take a walk to the beach through the beautiful gardens. Each night, thousands of lights and candles are lit up around the property and the place looks like a romantic paradise.
Resort facilities include free shuttle service to Lamai Beach and Chaweng Beach, ocean kayaks, weekly guest cocktail night with complimentary drinks and canapes, computer and library area, gym with fitness machines and weights, wifi in all rooms and around the resort and complimentary yoga classes.
Rocky’s Boutique Resort features 47 luxurious rooms and 3 private pool villas. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. They have a lovely balcony with great views of the garden, pool or sea.
When we arrived at our “Deluxe Garden Pool View Room”, a fresh fruit platter was already waiting for us and the room was decorated with beautiful flowers. The decor of the room was beautifully designed and the room was furnished to perfection. Our bungalow was surrounded by tropical garden and had great views of the main pool and the restaurant.
The luxurious restaurant called The Dining Room is located directly on the beachfront and has breathtaking views of the sea. Here you can have a deliciously prepared dishes from the award-winning chef Pamon Phengnoo. The food served in the restaurant can compete with some of the best restaurants in the world. The a la carte breakfast menu was excellent and the meals were exceptional and beautifully prepared.
The Bistro Restaurant offers a variety of Mediterranean and Thai dishes. It is located by the main pool and it has live music at dinner time. Once a week the hotel organizes a welcome party for new guests to meet up and drink their special cocktails. It was a fun and unforgettable evening meeting all the staff and other guests.
The resort has a beautiful private beach. However, the beach is not suitable for swimming, due to a large number of rocks in the area. If you wish to explore the ocean it is possible to rent out swimming shoes and snorkeling equipment free of charge at the resort. If you wish to relax you order a Thai massage right on the beach. The resort also has two swimming pools where you can swim or just enjoy and relax.
