This year's event was the 7th Cancer Care Charity Fun Run in Koh Samui, and was held on Saturday, May 24, 2014 in association with the Thai Red Cross Society and with the support of local partners including business associations, government agencies, schools, and media. Proceeds from the run went again towards research projects currently conducted by the Haematological Cancer Research Centre at Chulalongkorn Hospital.


  Go
Ready, Steady, Go!!

At Rocky's we love to promote and participate in such events, even if it means getting up at 5 in the morning! As was the case for this race. But we don't mind, we love to have fun and do some sport especially when it is for such a good cause. And that is why more than 25 people from our hotel between staff and guests took part in this wonderful event!

It was a fun day for everybody. But I have kept the biggest surprise of the day for the end. The winner of the 2014 Cancer Care Fun Run of Koh Samui was one of Rocky's Guests!

Winner  Trophy

We want to congratulate the winner and thank everybody who took part it this Charity Event. It was really great that one of our Guests won the race. It was Big Surprise for everyone, even to him!


Rocky's Josephine Boat Trip. 


Rocky's has it's own boat called the Josephine. It is a beautiful traditional Thai wooden boat. We have put the engine underneath to cut the noise down so that our guests can relax and enjoy their trip. All the staff at the Boat are Rocky's staff and therefore offer the same standard of service as we offer at our hotel. Our Josephine day trip starts at 10:00am (we don't like to make our guests wake up too early). Once on the boat we head south from Koh Samui to the island of Koh Tan.

There we stop for snorkeling. It is a wonderful place with crystal clear water where you can see an amazing assortment of different sea creatures. It is a natural reserve area so there are many. many fish and beautiful coral reefs. After the snorkeling we head out away from Koh Tan to do some fishing. If you catch a fish big enough our crew will cook it for you on the boat. Next we head to Koh Madsum Island, which is nearly deserted and where there is a beautiful white sandy beach where ou can relax. We serve a simple but very nice lunch on the boat. It is a very, very popular trip and all the guests that have gone on it loved it!

Sunset Cruise.

 Enjoy an evening cruise on the Josephine to watch the sunset. Whether you simply want to see an amazing sunset from the sea, or are looking for a romantic evening cruise with your loved one, this is the trip for you. We serve delicious canapés and soft drinks and if you want to enjoy a good bottle of wine or champagne and celebrate a real special occasion you can order it beforehand.

Wine  Sunset

This cruise is just amazing. There is nothing quite as astounding as watching the sunset form the sea. This is a real special trip that you can't miss. It is an absolut must!

Kind Regards,
The Rocky's Team

Testimonials from our Guests

“A loverly place to stay”
Reviewed 3 days ago

We stopped at Rockys for 9 nights & had a beach side room. We arrived late at night but still met by very friendly staff. Our room was immaculate & very comfortable. The view from our windows were fantastic. We definitely had the best views of all the rooms available. 

All the staff were so friendly & couldn't do enough for you. Even down to the iced water they gave you when sitting on the sun loungers by the pool & they topped that up on a regular basis. 

At breakfast there was a good choice of help yourself food like fresh fruit/pastries/ toast/fresh juice & then there were many choices off the menu that they cooked fresh. 

We ate in The Bistro a few nights which serves Thai food & it was delicious. We also ate in the main dining room where the food was equally delicious but served more westernised food. 

They hold a cocktail evening on Friday nights (free cocktails) by the pool side which is worth going to :-) 

The free shuttle taxi service they offer to the local town is really useful & very prompt & a delightful driver, just make sure you book in advance. 

We enjoyed our stay at Rockys & would recommend it if you are looking for a complete chill out holiday.

Tranquilida, extrema amabilidad y profusión de pequeños detalles”
Reviewed 3 days ago

El Rocky Resort no es el más espectacular ni el más lujoso hotel de la zona, pero tiene un encanto especial que lo diferencia. Hace ya tiempo que estuvimos allí, y aunque la primera impresión no fue la mejor (llegamos de noche y debido a la exhuberancia de su jardín, creímos erroneamente estar en medio de la selva, lo cual nos provocó una enorme intranquilidad, por miedo a las serpientes e insectos), después del primer día y de haber visitado otros hoteles, descubrimos todo su encanto.

En primer lugar, el personal que trabaja en él, desde las camareras de habitaciones hasta el servicio del restaurante, te tratan con la más exquisita de las amabilidades de forma natural, hasta el extremo que mi hija pequeña, de sólo 4 años, bajaba solita a desayunar, y la trataban como a su propia hija. 

Nuestras habitaciones, que no eran las mejores, no eran espectaculares, pero la profusión de detalles (flores frescas sobre la cama, las mesas y el cuarto de baño, cestas de frutas, incienso, abrir la cama y perfumar la habitación cada atardecer...) compensaban con creces. Ojo, no quiero decir que estuvieran mal, pero como el primer día recorrimos otros hoteles, vimos algunos mucho más espectaculares, aunque demasiado grandes y sin el calor humano del Rocky Resort.

El hotel se encuentra, no al lado de la playa, sino prácticamente EN la playa. Mejor dicho, unas minicalas encantadoras que, no obstante, desaparecen cuando hay temporal, aunque el espectáculo de las olas rompiendo con furia es encantador.

Cenamos varias noches en el propio hotel. Aunque era mucho más caro que comer fuera, era francamente agradable tanto por la ambientación del local, como sobretodo por la amabilidad extrema. Con los niños, el trato fue excepcional y la comida muy buena.

Una mañana nos despertaron 4 o 5 leves golpes. Vimos que estaban haciendo un pequeño trabajo en el jardín, junto a nuestra habitación, un pequeño altar para ofrendas. Cuando la dirección supo, ya no recuerdo como, que el ruido nos había despertado, nos descontó esa noche del precio.

En definitiva, un excelente recuerdo de nuestros días pasados en el Rocky resort.

We enjoyed every single part of this holiday and highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff were great and very attentive. The room was wonderful, large, relaxing and superbly decorated.

We were blown away the minute we arrived. Great resort, accommodation, gardens and people.
Thankyou to Ann,kian, cherry, boat and Jo who made our stay most enjoyable.
We had the pleasure of getting married here and it was perfect. Ann did an amazing job and I had nothing to worry about. The setting is amazing and I recommend anyone who is thinking about getting married in koh samui to do it at rockys. 

During our stay we had the opportunity to go out on the Josephine and have a day snorkelling. Highly recommended. We had a cooking class with the chef and tasted some great Thai food. We had the Thai buffet and international buffet for dinner during our stay and was delicious. I was disappointed not to have tasted more of the menu.
