CELES Beachfront Resort

The BEST Hotel In Koh Samui, Thailand

3. January 20190 Comments4 Minutes

We spent four wonderful days in the beautiful Celes Beachfront Resort. We really enjoyed our holiday there and highly recommend the hotel to anyone planning a holiday in Koh Samui. The newly opened beach resort is just perfect.

We were warmly welcomed by the hotel staff. We were served in the open lobby a welcome cocktail and a delicious coconut ice cream.

yummy welcome drink and delicious coconut ice cream

Our room was very spacious and clean as well as modern furnished. The bed is huge and totally comfortable. We had a great terrace with seating. The bathroom is very modern and equipped with everything you need. In addition to the normal shower, there is an outdoor shower, which was a very unique addition to the room. Every hotel room has a great coffee maker and a basket of fresh fruits was arranged for us.

Our hotel room was only a few meters from the beautiful infinity pool and the white sand beach. Next to the pool is a great pool bar, where delicious drinks as well as coffee is served. All the guest recieve clean towels for the pool or the beach at the Pool Bar every day. The lounge chairs at the pool area are super comfortable and we spent a lot of time at the pool overlooking the ocean.


best infinity pool – we loved it

The breakfast buffet in the SeaGrille Restaurant was excellent. The selection of Thai and western food was great. We loved everything we tried and talked to the very nice and friendly Chef several times. Especially recommended are the super tasty homemade jams, the freshly squeezed juices and the delicious coffee.

We also had a very special dinner with outstanding delicious food and great cocktails at the SeaGrille Restaurant. The ambience at this beautiful Restaurant is incredible. We really loved the nautic decoration and the great atmosphere. The seafood dish was excellent and I ate the best dessert ever there: the Coconut parfait on mango and strawberries!

The CELES Beachfront Resort has everything you could wish for on a great vacation. There is a very nice library with a iMac for guests, a gym with new equipment and a super nice Spa, where great deals are offered to the hotel guests.


The location of the hotel is excellent. It is still a few steps to beautiful beach restaurants and about a 10 minute walk to the night market and Fischerman’s Village. 

We are planning to come back next year because we really loved the Celes Beachfront Resort. A hotel like this is not so easy to find in Thailand.

Our Dreams Came True At Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort

We picked the little Island Koh Mak as our last beach destination before we are headed back to Bangkok, where our flight leaves to Germany! Koh Mak is about 190miles away from Bangkok and is located between Koh Chang and Koh Kood! Thanks to the Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort for a great time!

Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort - Our Happy Place

We stayed at the beautiful Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort, which is a incredible resort and we can highly recommend it to everybody who plans to visit Koh Mak!

Let me show you around the Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort.

Warm Welcome At The Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort

At arrival the staff served us a delicious welcome drink and handed us a map of the island and explained where all the good sights are. They showed us our bungalow which is in a beautiful lush garden! They arranged the flowers on the bed to spell out "welcome Ina", which I think is so cute and shows how much love they put in the resort to make the guests happy! I've never seen that before, so I was really surprised about this lovely gesture!


best welcome arrangement ever

We immediately fell in love with the incredible rooftop, which every bungalow has! The view was amazing and we loved to relax there on the lounge chairs. Because there is a roof on top, you can relax in the shade. There are so many pink flowers and the whole resort and garden is very well maintained.

Ao Kao Restaurant - Koh Mak

We ate many times at the Ao Kao Restaurant, which served super delicious food. The breakfast was included and very tasty. The staff prepared fresh scrambled eggs or omletts as well as my favorite pancakes with banana and chocolate sauce. We could sit right at the ocean with a view of the surrounding islands. A speciality was the homemade fruit jellys, which we loved with our toasts.

aokao breakfast

We really enjoyed every single day of our stay at the Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort. The weather was perfect, so we had the chance to explore the island by scooter as well. We had fun times in the clear water, snorkeling and enjoying our last days at the beach for the next couple of month!

The Perfect Resort in Koh Mak

This Resort is awesome and we can highly recommend it to you! We hope we will be back there soon!
