Hotel Friendship Sport Games and Activities at Rocky's

Hotel Friendship Sport Games

This month we had another edition of the Hotel Friendship Games. These games take place every year to help foment a good relationship between staff of different Hotels on the Island and to promote the practice of sports. The games consist of a sports tournament where staff from one hotel play against staff from other hotels. They are like the Olympic Games but with Hotels instead of countries. 

The games begin with a parade around the streets in which staff from every hotel takes part.

Each hotel is given a color and chooses a theme. This year our color was yellow and our theme was "Reduce, Re-use and Recycle"

Many different sports are played: football, badminton, petanc, volleyball, etc. The games started on the 7th of June and finished on the 18th. After all these days of competition Rocky's came third in the overall ranking. We are very proud of this. Our staff played very well and what is even more important everybody had a lot of fun and did some sport. 
We are already preparing for next year Games!


Rocky's Activities. 

Rocky's is a great place to relax. You can have a wonderful a la carte breakfast and then lay on the beach or next to one of our 2 pools and read a book for the rest of the day. But there are many more things to do while you are at Rocky's that will make your holiday experience even more wonderful. Below you can see twwo of our most popular activities. They are great fun and designed to provide our guests with unforgettable experiences.


Romantic Dinner on the Beach.


Fantasy becomes reality at Rocky's with our ultimate Romantic Beach side dining experience. Imagine candles fluttering along with a refreshing sea breeze a private table set for two and a good bottle of wine. There is no better way to celebrate something or to simply say "I love you" than Rocky's Taylor made Romantic Dinner on the Beach. It is designed for an unforgettable evening of romance.

The evening starts with cocktails and canapés when the sun is setting. After that you sit in your very own open air dining room on the beach to enjoy the wonderful food which our chef has especially designed for the occasion. You can choose from two wonderful menus; a Royal Thai Kantok or a five course Chef tasting menu. If you are looking for the ultimate "Wow" experience this is it!

Private Island Tour.

It is the best way to see the Island because it is your own private tour. You have a private driver that will be pleased to take you to the most beautiful and interesting placees on Samui. You can plan what you want to see and our driver will happily take you where you want to go. It is much better than a group tour of the island where they take you where they want and you have a set time for each place you visit. With your own private tour you can stay as long as you want in any of the places you visit. It is a great way to explore and discover Koh Samui Island.

Testimonials from our Guests

Stunning location, beautiful hotel and fabulous staff make a stay at Rocky's truely memorable!
5 of 5 starsReviewed 5 days ago


The attention to detail is what makes staying at Rocky's an absolute dream. From the moment you arrive the staff do everything possible to make your stay special. Upon check in they provide you with cold face towels and iced drinks, this was so sorely needed as I was incredibly hot and stressed as my luggage had not made it to the island. I was assured by the staff that this was fairly common and that they were sure it would arrive shortly, they were right, as within 10 mins of getting to my room, staff appeared at the door with my luggage. 
The room I had was a mini suite situated right on the beach. It was beautiful. Again the attention to detail was evident. Complimentary beach bag, flip flops and straw sun hats, along with plenty of bottled water and fruit. 

When on the beach you are attended with cold face towels, iced water and fruit kebabs ensuring you stay hydrated. The staff are always friendly and never walk by without saying hello and asking how you are. It's pitched well, not overly attentive so as to feel stifling, but you know that if you need anything, the staff are close by and will do all they can to fulfill your every need. 

It's an incredibly romantic setting and so is mainly frequented by couples. There were two weddings on the private and secluded beach during the week that I was there. They were beautiful events, but I would be careful to ensure booking during the dry season. The wind whips up very quickly and fiercely with sudden heavy downpours. Both weddings that I saw remained dry, but one of them was incredibly windy and I think only narrowly missed being rained on. It would be a shame to have your special day tempered by bad weather. 

The breakfast was great, with lots to choose from (I particularly loved the french toast). I didn't try lunch, but dinner in the dining room was lovely. Great food, and the staff were always attentive. In particular Tien. Always on the ball, and chatted naturally with all of the guests. 
Guest relations manager Lucas, makes sure everyone is happy during his daily breakfast rounds, and is happy to arrange trips and give advice on what to do around the island.

All in all a beautiful hotel in a stunning setting with fabulous staff. I arrived feeling tired, stressed and irritable, and left feeling completely relaxed and with a tear in my eye. I do hope to return again one day, and who knows, I might even return as one side of a romantic couple - fingers crossed! ;-)
