Koh Samui, Island of Peace
I am sure many of you have heard about the recent military Coup in Thailand. You have probably seen images of streets full of soldiers and armored vehicles. Thess are the typical images TV channels show to increase their audience. But the situation in Thailand is calm and stable. You got nothing to fear if you are coming here on your next vacation. Thai people are very peaceful and Buddhism is by far the most common religion among them. Buddhism is a religion that preaches peace and undertsanding and Thai people are very firm believers in this two concepts.
All tourism-related businesses and services (hotels, resorts, spas, restaurants, entertainment
venues, cinemas, convention centers, shopping malls, superstores, convenient stores, as
well as banks, petrol and gas stations) throughout Thailand are open and operating as per
normal. Telephone and internet services continue to be available 24 hours.
From Rocky's we want to inform you that none of what has happened in recent days has affected Samui. Nothing has changed here. There are no soldiers on the streets and no demonstrations.
The Island has not been affected whatsoever. People go around their usual business, tourist flock to the wonderful beaches and markets. The night life is as busy and as fun as always. The curfew did not affect Koh Samui when it was in place and now it has been lifted. Even the famous Full Moon Party at Koh Koh Panghan is taking place as usual!
So if you have already planned or were planning to spend your next holiday in this Paradise Island, don't think twice and come and enjoy all the wonderful things Koh Samui has to offer!
Below you can read a couple of reviews our guests have written about the wonderful experience they had at Rocky's.

Testimonials from our Guests
“Amazing resort, 6 stars!”
We stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The resort is incredible - not sure why it's not a 5-star resort other than the lack of room service (which I never use anyways).
The resort is georgeous - the pools, the grounds, the rooms, the restaurants, the beach - everything. They have paid attention to every detail, from the fresh flowers in the water pots, and everywhere in the room, to the décor, to the food. The staff are very friendly and very helpful as well.
The free cocktail party was lots of fun, the food at breakfast was exceptional, and everything was always clean.
We had one glitch at checkout that they fixed quickly and completely to our satisfaction. I would stay here again, any time.
Stayed June 2014, traveled with friends.
The first stop on our honeymoon to Thailand. This is hands down the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. The attention to detail is apparent at every turn. Two pools, one overlooking the ocean, one set in a beautiful garden. While laying by the pool, the extremely friendly staff comes around periodically to give out fresh fruit skewers, ice water, and chilled towels. You feel so pampered while staying here.
The Thai buffet and show is a must do.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for a relaxing experience.
