Rocky’s Boutique Resort is a contemporary and stylish beachside hotel whose remote setting makes it an ideal choice for those looking to get away from it all. This delightful hidden gem is nestled in a secluded cove on Koh Samui, Thailand’s third largest island, known for its pristine sandy beaches, swaying coconut trees, abundance of Buddhist temples and lush tropical landscapes. Although the hotel offers convenient access to many parts of the island, it’s not as touristy as other hotels in the immediate area so it’s a particularly peaceful retreat.
The accommodation comprises 47 rooms and three private pool villas. All rooms are exceptionally well presented, with each one featuring unique artwork and tasteful decor. Every room has gorgeous views of either the hotel’s well-tended tropical gardens, its crystal-clear swimming pool or the Gulf of Thailand. Amenities common to all rooms and villas include air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV with DVD player.
Rocky’s Boutique Resort has plenty of facilities. There are two lovely swimming pools: one is right by the beach, while the other is set within the hotel’s gardens. There’s a games room with a billiards table, a library with computers and a beachfront spa offering Thai massages and other treatments. Guests can take part in Thai cooking classes, go on guided island tours and even hire a traditional long-tail boat for sunset cruises and snorkelling expeditions. The hotel doesn’t have a gym of its own, though guests have complimentary use of a gym in Lamai about five minutes away by car.
The Dining Room is the hotel’s main restaurant and offers fine dining in a beachside setting with French cuisine on the menu. The Bistro has a more casual feel, offering lighter meals and snacks and specialising in Thai and Mediterranean cuisine; it’s located right by the garden pool and has a variety of drinks available.
Children are welcome and there are plenty of child-oriented facilities. There’s a swimming pool just for kids, as well as a supervised play area with games, books, toys and a TV. A babysitting service is also available. Note that some of the rooms are set higher up on a hill, so the best rooms for families are those closer to the pool. The Deluxe Pool Villas are recommended for larger families, and there are also several interconnecting rooms to choose from.

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol

It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
Kind regards, John

Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
