Perfect, relaxing stay on the beach!
Rocky's Boutique Resort is definitely a place to relax if you're in Koh Samui! It's located near Lamai beach, which has a Sunday night market that is amazing and plenty to do and eat. The location was perfect on the beach, with an incredible view for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. They offer something every night, so if you want to stay in vs. going to Lamai you can. They also offer free shuttles to get to Lamai and will help you out with transport. You can easily get to the waterfalls or other experiences nearby! Rocky's was great at helping us get sorted out with renting a small motorbike/scooter (something that was actually a great idea in the end). Overall, great experience. Would go back again!
Four night break on Koh Samuai at Rocky's Boutique Resort
I rarely write reviews after trips but Rocky's Boutique is so exceptional I want to share it with you. We had a four night stay booked and the service and attention to detail made this a visit of a lifetime. Our suite was right by the beach (all rooms are so close) and they even provided a beach bag and hats if we wanted them. The staff were absolutely outstanding, we were regularly offered iced water or fruit kebabs (at no extra coat) during the day while we were resting by the sea or the pool. The restaurants were fantastic and we could even have a meal on the beach. Our safe would not open one day and we were heading out for the morning on a trip and they got cash ready in case the safe was not open before we left. Nothing was too much trouble I would love to go back.
Nice but slightly dated
We stayed for 8 nights which coincided with the progressive lockdown in UK and a deteriorating situation in Thailand. Rockys was at about 25% occupancy so plenty of sunbeds by the pool and on the beach both of which were lovely. We were upgraded to a nice room at the lower level which was clean and comfortable. Rockys recognise that they need to refresh the property and have commenced an extensive programme of work to to do - indeed they compensated for any disruption (which we didn’t experience) with food/drinks/massage vouchers. By the way the massages were excellent! The quality of the food was excellent and the prices fair although the service at the lower pool bar was a little disorganised at times particularly where there are lots of promotions (happy hour and daily themes) which confuses the staff. Rockys is in a good location for taxi access to Lamai, airport and around the island. Rockys will continue to thrive because of its unique offering and location and because of the refresh programme. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.
Beautiful resort with amazing staff
Rocky's is all about the little details that they get just right. The beautiful grounds that are immaculately kept by the gardeners, the kids club that my 4 year old absolutely loved, the way the rooms are set out just right with a day bed, candles and mosquito coils outside, the noodle bar at the breakfast buffet and the cocktail theme night. Most of all, what makes it wonderful are the staff who are all so friendly and amazing at customer service. We went from Rocky's to another hotel on the island at a similar price point and there was just no comparison- Rocky's wins, hands down.
The perfect resort!
Our second visit to Rocky's to enjoy heat away from the British winter. We spend four weeks at Rocky's in February in a magnificent ocean view suite. Lovely large room, kept immaculately clean and well stocked. Excellent breakfast every morning....highly recommend the French toast...with the fullest menu I have seen and a very varied well stocked buffet for everything other than the main course. Highlight is the chef's special, offered each morning at the table! The two beaches are small, but kept in perfect condition and perfectly peaceful......no noise other than nature! There are two restaurants. 'The Dining Room' is fine dining and tends to be quiet, but there are special events on several evenings, such as 'Surf and Turf' night and Thai Specials. For more routine dining, the Bistro, beside the upper swimming pool, has a good variety of European and Thai food, beautifully prepared and presented at reasonable prices. You But the greatest asset of Rocky's is its staff! This being our second visit, we were remembered and welcomed by so many of them (and by restaurant owners and shopkeepers in Lamai!) which made us feel really special. So thank you so much to the general manager, Junya, and all her team, particularly Ariane who ensures that everyone is properly cared for, Wut, who keeps the beaches and pools in tip top condition, and Jack keeping the restaurant running smoothly...…….and to everyone else! Cannot recommend too highly!!
