Rated 5 out of 5 by T888 Premium Quality and Service.
Among the hotels and resorts along Chewang, where all the main action is at, Vana Belle is probably the most premium of them all. Upon arriving, we were already greeted by the GM who was very welcoming of our stay. Would like to make special mention to the guys at the concierge, Mr. Nor and the rest of the crew. I think these guys have helped us a lot especially considering that logistics and moving around Samui can be quite costly bec of the taxi union. I also noticed that everyone in the hotel was not only focused on their own job but they also do several tasks at the same time which was really amazing and most importantly, convenient. Imagine the concierge preparing your late check out, handling the car rental service and restaurant reservations. Some of the requests that I recall we made from them. A buggie was always available on request and we did not have to wait long. Space is definitely an abundance in their rooms. There was more than enough room to move around considering we were already three in the room. I am unsure if this was still part of the control of the hotel but the pool was generally warm during out stay. Considering the hot weather, it would've been nice for it to be at least a bit cooler. We also visited other premium hotels such as the six senses and W which was really far from the action and I think overall, Vana Belle is still my personal choice for premium service and quality. I would definitely comeback to this hotel if I visit Samui again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChillingOut Luxury with facilities and service to match
We were really looking for a luxury reward for all the hard work we put in during the last year and we chose Vana Belle based on that perception from the website. We were not disappointed! We chose the Grand Pool suite and it certainly lived up to our expectations. It was luxurious, elegantly fitted out and meticulously kept clean by the staff. The whole resort was equally well maintained and beautifully presented. The service levels were extremely high and the staff all very friendly, courteous and responsive - nothing was ever too much to ask. They made our little boy feel welcome always. The food at the restaurants was always presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The decor and eating utensils matched the high standards. On a couple of occasions, we ordered room service and again, no matter how simple the meal, it was still laid out on the table for us very professionally with silverware and linen napkins. Breakfast was certainly plentiful with a wide range of options available presented buffet style from cereals, fresh fruit, freshly baked pastries and bread, Asian dishes and off course a la carte choices. All delicious, well presented and fresh. Our only complaint was that they didn't know how to do eggs very well. No matter how we ordered eggs, they were mostly over cooked. We utilised the services of the Spa and again, they did not disappoint. The staff, decor, equipment and surroundings were top class. The masseurs were skilful. Both our private pool and the resort pool were crystal clear, clean and just the right water temperature as well as aesthetically pleasing. We would highly recommend Vana Belle for anyone looking for a luxury escape with matching service levels from well trained staff in a beautiful and well maintained resort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DEPPIE DID NOT STAY AT HOTEL BECAUSE OF RESTAURANT
Did not stay in hotel but went to Pnali to check it as i am platinum and was looking at Hotel as an option.The exec chef arrived and within seconds explained he did not know how to cook Thai food...?? He also guarded about where he came from. We ordered wine and sat outside for drinks when we ordered second bottle they had run out of stock of the first type so we ordered alternative but at same price, at table ordered another of that wine and they had run out of that too..5 star ??.....you are joking
Starters ok but could be warmer
Main course arrived and the chicken was blood raw..when sent back they stuck in boost over or mic and returned to table...could not be eaten ....... not 5 star treatment or cooking
the cannelloni bland lasagne cold and bland
fish way overcooked sent all main courses back and said we were leaving and wanted bill and coffee while waiting...which they charged for Baht 12052 3 different wines ,shared starter and no main courses...not 5 star by any means....They even charged for the coffee
When the chef came only after asking he was on back foot and said what did we expent him to do.....stock wine that you are trying to sell learn to cook and go on training course on understanding customer service...Thank goodness i was not staying here this trip and as loyal Starwood Platinum member with over 150 nights a year i have to say based upon the 2 managers I met and the food and unprofessional wine offer I would not consider this place unless there were some serious management changes
To the GM. Please do not post a sorry sorry response. You have serious problems here and you have to make some changes ...these guys had no idea how to handle the customer and cannot cook. There is no way I could use or recommend this restaurant unless changes made and problem was fixed and unless these changes made would not use the hotel.
Tell me when you have fixed things and perhaps we can look again as am regular visitor to Koh Samui
