Pretty much perfect
Having travelled extensively and experienced many of the 'higher end' type places throughout Asia, I can confidently state that Rocky's is up there with the best. It combines the amenities and facilities of those large, 5-star resorts with the intimacy of a personal hotel, having only around 50 suites.
The location is lovely, having direct access to a small beach of its own in addition to being only a 5-minute walk from the larger Lamai Beach and all of its bars and restaurants. Food is great too and the rooms are spacious, clean and have all amenities you would expect.
But, as with most good places, it is the staff that can make all the difference and it in this regard that Rocky's truly excels. The graciousness, kindness, friendliness and every other positive 'ness' I can think of were all practised by everyone, from the management through to the groundskeepers who were always there with a warm greeting and a smile.
I would highly recommend Rocky's in Koh Samui without hesitation. Although the resort itself is pretty perfect, it's the staff that really make it. Jun and Ariane do a wonderful job of looking after the guests and special mention to Cha Em and Nam for dealing so gracefully and kindly with our 14-strong breakfast chaos every morning.
We have visited many places throughout the world and this is one of the few we specifically intend returning to, which I hope is the strongest endorsement we could give!
