The level of service in the hotel was exceptional...
We love returning to hotels we think are wonderful, and Poppies is one of those!
A boutique hotel with Thai style cottages
A tiny magical oasis of tropical enchantment, Poppies Samui lies on a pristine white sandy beach in the Gulf of Siam. Located at the south end of renowned Chaweng beach, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort area, Poppies has earned its reputation, since opening in 1994, as Koh Samui's most exclusive boutique hideaway. In addition to offering the same idyllic style and charm as its famous namesake and sister hotel Poppies Bali. Poppies Samui offers its guests exceptionally high standards of friendly service and attention to detail in a perfect location.
More than just a room
Just 24 luxuriously appointed individual Thai style cottages hide amid the tropical greenery, each offering privacy from the others, and each combining the best of Thai style with modern western comforts. Screened windows and inner doors, leading onto a private terrace, let in the sea breezes, while both air-conditioning and ceiling fan come as standard.
The unique bathroom, with its own private screened garden open to the sky, features a sunken bathtub and shower set in a cool marble floor.
Gardens and Pools
The path to each cottage leads through lush landscaped gardens passing meandering streams, fish ponds, teak bridges and waterfalls.
Between these gardens and the sea lies a spectacular crystal-clear free form swimming pool with natural rock surrounds, complemented by a sparkling rock pool jacuzzi.
Poppies Restaurant is now firmly established as one of the leading restaurants on the island, where you can dine under the stars overlooking the beach in an open sided thatched 'sala', or in the magnificent Ayuthaya style solid teak pavilion beside the pool.
Poppies is owned, managed and staffed by a dedicated and established team, many of whom have been employed since its opening. The resort's staff to room ratio is over 3 to 1.
As a result Poppies is quite simply a haven of comfort, excellent food, and personal service, particularly for couples (although children are welcome) at affordable prices, where as many as 35% of our guests are returnees.
