Excellent accommodation & great service”

Nice rooms for the money, good breakfast by Thai standards

I would definately recommend this resort. Bang Por, where Panalee is located is in a quiet location when compared to other areas on the island. With this in mind we hired a jeep from the airport to enable us to be in a quiet location, but also give us the freedom to get around the island. Without transport you will be limited to the things that you can do at Panalee, but with transport is an excellent choice. The rooms - We stayed in a deluxe villa, although It was more like a suite. One of the ones at the front of the property. There were no noise problems from the road. The Villa consisted of a nicely appointed bedroom with wardrobes, securely fixed safe in the wardrobe, Air conditioning in the bedroom. Separate living area with large TV & DVD player, Fridge (Minibar), Sofa / bench seating, Coffee table. Ceiling fan within living room. Separate bathroom with large granite bathtub & separate shower, Toilet & sink in another room. The only thing that is missing from these villas is an outdoor seating area. There were seats & a table provided nearby, but it would be nice to sit directly outside the villa, I suppose that as this was not considered when the villas were built it is a little late to incorporate as an after thought. Restaurant - The restaurant is on the beach which is on the opposite side of the road. I should stress that at no time was there any difficulty in crossing this road. Breakfast was served by handing out a tick list & you circle the options you would like. The Breakfast was fairly good when compared to other breakfasts served in Thailand. Thai food was also served in the restaurant at other times & was reasonably priced & good. Service - We booked our ferry tickets to Koh Phagnan through the resort for 250bhat each. This is actually cheaper than buying them direct from the ferry company (Lomprayah) who charge 300bhat at the pier. The rooms were made up every day when the key was handed in. I would stay at Panalee again.

Peaceful, Kind and friendly staff, great beach restaurant, Two pools, Spacious and clean rooms

Had a fantastic stay in the peaceful, serene and thankfully secluded resort a few steps away from the shoreline. We got upgraded deluxe villa(thanks guys, fantastic surprise!), the rooms are clean, comfortable making it a perfect destination if you’re looking to get away from the craziness of Koh Samui’s other party beaches. The staff at Panalee were not only kind, good-natured and friendly but also extremely helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a pleasant stay. I will definitely recommend it to friends and would love to return if I find myself on Koh Samui again.

A homely retreat in a quiet area”

Two pools, large rooms, peaceful and serene

the panalee resort is a real treat in bang por. we had a delightful ten day stay lounging by either one of the two pools -- both of which are adequately sized, clean and well designed, indulging in the many affordable dining options of the area or walking along the beach. our only concern, initially was the internet. at first we were placed beside one of the pools on the far side of the resort and we didn't pick up an internet signal so we found ourselves checking emails and using skype in the lobby, where the signal strength was good. to our delight, the always friendly and proprietorial resort manager approached us and offered a free upgrade to one of the bungalows beside the lobby where we could use the internet in our room. of course we accepted and we found ourselves in a much larger two room bungalow. the staff continued to be friendly and provided five star service. the resort offers scooters for rent and helpful maps and advice.

Best stay ever!”

High service level, friendly staff, beautiful and spacious bungalows, great location
Nothing

I originally booked 2 nights (after some bad resort experiences I wanted to check the resort out first) but after I arrived I immediatly booked 3 nights extra. I stayed at both the Poolview Villa as well as the One-bedroom Villa. Both "rooms" were beautiful; clean, fresh, spacious and very private. Goods beds and really nice rain shower in the bathroom. The location is great; (almost) right at the beach! The road is the only thing that splits the resort from the beach. Though it is the main road, you don't hear much of the cars passing by (and it is still easy to get to one of the towns for shopping). I stayed at the bungalow closest to the road and I didn't even hear a thing during the night. If you don't like the beach, there is a swimming pool as well and since the resort is so small (13 bungalows), you will have the pool for yourself most of the time. Though the restaurant is across the road (which gives you the opportunity to have dinner with a view of the beautiful sunset), they also serve breakfast / lunch / dinner at your bungalow or at the pool. They offer a wide variety of dishes and the food is absolutely the best Thai food I had in Thailand (see restaurant tip as well). The best thing about the resort is the staff, they are so warm and friendly. They remember the little details (e.g. I left early for a trip and they packed me a sandwich to go) and they take the extra step to make your stay the perfect stay. They promise you a home away from home and they keep that promise! I will definitely return to the Panalee Resort and I can recommend everybody to stay there as well!

Lovely place”

Great location, friendly staff, nice beach, comfortable and clean room, good choice for a breakfast, breakfast on the beach.
Small bottom, no safe in room.

The location of Panalee Resort is very good - just a few meters from the beach. It’s a silent and quiet place, it’s that we searched after city noise and vanity. Good place to rest, nobody disturbs your peace. Location is really perfect and nice beach with white and fine sand, but it's not suitable for swim (small bottom and corals). But it is possible to dabble on shore. For children it’s good. There is a bar at hotel on a beach, you can always take pleasure fresh juice or freshening shake, especially good is mango juice. By the way here near grows the mango tree, you can reap a crop directly on a beach))) The hotel's staff is very professional, friendly, warm and polite. We have never met such a nice and helpful people. Room is not big, but very comfortable and clean. Room service was every day and every day we got clean towels. Shower, toilet and air-conditioner all worked well. In a bathroom besides a standard set (shampoo, soap, tooth-brushes...) there was still a coconut oil. A trifle, but it’s pleasant. There isn’t safe in room, but you can always without problems leave your valuable things on reception (it’s free). It's romantic, nice, cozy hotel. We will return again next year to this hotel.

very good value for money, nice swimming pool, friendly staff

we stayed 2 nights at panalee resort and are totally happy with our stay. the room were very nice and clean, the bathroom space was also very spacious and clean with a nice rain shower. our bungalow was located right between the two swimming pools of the resort. both swimming pool were very clean and mostly deserted as there were not so many guests in the resort. you feel like you have your own private pool. the resort is a bit remote from the pier and from the areas with activities, you better have your own wheels to get around the island. few cons though: the resort did not have that many guests, so the pool bar was always closed. you have to cross the main road to get to the beach. you have to cross the street to take your not so good breakfast. except these few issues, the rest is very good value for money. i would totally recommend this resort to people that plan to rent a car or a motorbike and like to eat out of their resort.

Great Stay at Panalee”

Nice rooms, privacy, staff, atmosphere
No staff near pool for serving drinks

We stayed 6 days in May 2010 at Panalee and had a fantastic stay. The resort is quite new and is a bit further away from Chaweng Beach (which we liked) but everything is easy to reach when you rent a motorbike or car. Staff was really helpfull and did everything to make our stay very comfortable. They have a nice pool where you can relax after a daytour on the island. The beach is nice but if you want to swim in sea better to drive in the direction of Chaweng. Nice food in the restaurant and again great staff. For a change there are some nice Thai restaurants in the area. We can reccommend this hotel to everybody!!!

Peaceful, quiet resort in a remote part of Samui”

Quiet location, close to beach, good hotel service

We stayed at Panalee Resort for four nights during late June and we along with another family were the only people there which made our stay very peaceful and relaxing. The service provided was excellent, when our shower wasn't working we were quickly upgraded to another room and the staff were very helpful and receptive to our questions about the island. The beach is just across the road however there are not many bars and restaurants around in the remote town of Bang Por, so if you are looking for a busier atmosphere you should look elsewhere, however if peace and quiet sound appealing then look no further than Panalee Resort.

Service! Beach across road, the Talay Bangpor restaurant was to DIE for, remote little sanctuary

We stayed here for a week and couldn't have asked for better. It's away from the main touristy areas of Chaweng and Lamai, but thank god we were away why would you go to Koh Samui to hang out with foreigners. The best part about this place is they look after you so well, hired us a car for a few days, organised cooking course at the restaurant across the road which does the best food I'd had on our trip. Cheap and amazing. The manager (I can't remember her name) has the most friendly and helpful persona, nothing is too big a task for her. You must try it. A beautiful sanctuary away from the craziness but accessible if you want to do it.

Great bungalows, nice garden

Panalee resort has it all. Friendly staff, nice garden surrounding the bungalows, quiet atmosphere and a nice little swimmingpool with showers. Superior bungalow was spacy and all we needed. Fine restaurant on the beach, but you have to cross the main road first. Bang Po beach is not the best beach, but okay. Best of all was than Panalee Resort acceptet late check out. We stayed till 8 p.m. for only 500 baht extra. They provided taxiservice from pier and to airport at a fair price too.

Great place although a bit far off in Bang Por”

beautiful rooms, quieter area and lovely staff

I really like staying here over other places I've stayed at in Koh Samui. The location suited my needs as it was quiter but for off from the more popular beaches of Chaweng and Lamai and the resort had beautiful villas that were clean with good washrooms. The staff was great and went out of their way to help you plan your trip and ensured you had an enjoyable stay. They would genuinely ask how you spent the day before and happy to suggest other activities to pursue as well as sights to see. You definitely need to rent a scooter and explore the island if your staying here for a bit longer than a few days. The beach is across the street and there's no wifi in the rooms unless you're close enough to the lobby. The breakfast is good but light and the amenities ( laundry, spa ) were overpriced in my opinion, but otherwise a beautiful quiet relaxing place to stay. You could rent dvds from reception which was fun and there few beach restaurants nearby were wonderfull. There isn't a restaurant at the hotel so you are forced to look for food in town, but its not a far walk and there's loads of beautiful beach bar/restaurants nearby.

We had some trouble with a passport and we got more help than we could have ever asked for. ”

The staff was amazing, so caring and wanted us to have a great stay at their hotel. We had two amazing days. Very close to a beautiful beach and many restaurants to choose between. Also very delicious breakfast where you could choose between many options. If I go back to Koh Samui I will definitely come back to this hotel!

Enjoyable Stay”

Quiet! Whenever we used the pool we had it to ourselves! On the beach there was no one selling anything and only a few tourists. When you wake up in the morning you hear bird song not city bustle!
Distance from town - this is also a pro as this is why the resort is so quiet - however do be aware that taxis into Chaweng are about 400baht and therefore you arn't going to go there each night for dinner/drinks!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Panalee. The villas were lovely and clean. The staff were VERY helpful. The resort and surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. This is the place to go to escape the hussle and bustle and truly relax!!!

Romantic island getaway”

value for money

We stayed in two bedroom panalee villa for 3 nights. Everything was fine. The Rooms are spacious, clean, thoughtfully appointed and uncluttered which I love, and bed linen changed every day. The service in our opinion was very good. Hotel restaurant just on beach which cross a road to resort (breakfast is included, if you want eat something for lunch or dinner they offer good food for normal price), 3 minutes walk from hotel is small “7.11 market” where you can buy food… The resort isn't very close to major towns but when we ventured in on a local tuc tuc taxi we found ourselves glad to get back to the tranquillity of our hotel. This place is very far from the nightlife. If you don't hire a scooter or car, you will have to pay heavy taxi fares. There is nothing around the resort and the beach across the street is not good for swimming or snorkeling. Without transport you will be limited to the things that you can do at Panalee, but with transport is an excellent choice.
