Nice resort, close to the beach and Lamai shopping

Posted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: Relaxing with great staff and brilliant views.
Cons: The addition of cutlery and crockery for use with the microwave and updated TV and DVD player.
Location: Close to shops, beach and night life.
Very relaxing, in peaceful surroundings. Resort staff extremely pleasant and nothing was too much trouble.

This was exactly what I was looking for.

Something that wasn't touristy. It was small and very personal. The staff was great and made us feel very welcome. It was on top of a hillside. So you had a perfect view of the beach. The beach was very close. Just walking distance. I would recommend this for a traveler. Not for a family who had a bunch of requests.

a quiet gem above the madness

Posted Feb 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Varinda Garden sits on a hill above the tourist-filled beaches of Koh Samui Island and what you give up in near-ness to a beach is more than offset by the solitude, friendly service and unique charm of the resort. You can easily forget about the maddening traffic of motorcycles and cars on the road below. And with a large swimming pool filled with constantly- flowing, warm water, and surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants, who needs a beach anyway. A water slide is at the dividing line of two halves of the pool, and adults seem to enjoy it as much as kids. The decor of the restaurant and surrounding grounds is original and very tasteful -- in a very Thai way. Calling it quirky doesn't quite do it justice, since it all comes together nicely. Family-friendly, I'd love to return with our grandkids some day.

Family holiday to The Hotel Varinda, June 2O12

Posted Jun 12, 2012
Pros: Laid back atmosphere and rustic feel to the place.
Cons: The beds are quite hard and there was some noise from the building work being carried out on some new bungalows there.
Location: Wonderfully-very close to the beach and main street, but without the noise.
The Varinda is a beautiful haven of peace and tranquility, and only a short walk from Lamai Beach. The hotel grounds are well maintained and full of ponds, waterfalls and lots of beautiful stautes,pots and a variety of modern sculptures. There is something interesting to look at wherever you venture.The staff are extremely friendly and eager to please and we were made to feel extremely welcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, but would point out that it is not a modern marble and teak luxury type of hotel-it has a much more laid back and rustic feel to it. My family and I would love to go back there. Due to the number of steep steps down to the main street-it is probable suitable for the elderly or families with small children, although taxis are cheap and will happily bring you right up to the main reception area.
