We stayed at the Varinda resort for 4 nights at the end of our 3 and a half weeks in Thailand and it was such a lovely place to end our trip! The resort is just so different to anywhere else we stayed with it’s vibrant colours and positive messages - even at then end of four days we were still finding things we hadn’t noticed earlier. The attention to detail that has gone into making this a special place sets the resort apart from anything else we stayed in. We stayed in a two bedroom family house and the views were stunning. It had a big balcony where we could eat or sit and chill. The house was incredibly spacious and the decor was so detailed and interesting - just like the rest of the resort. Our children loved the pool and the slide - we mostly had it to ourselves as the resort is still quiet at the moment. The staff could not have been more friendly throughout. They helped us plan our trips - we would definitely recommend the short trip to Crystal Bay as the beach is stunning and the water much calmer than Lamai beach. We were allowed to keep our room for longer too as we had a late flight. The food and drinks in the restaurant were delicious - we ate there a few times during our stay and were never disappointed. The resort is a bit of a walk to the centre and beach (5-10 mins) but we did not find this a problem, even with the children ( ours are 7 and 9). It meant we had the incredible view and the positivity of Varinda makes up for the fact it is not beach front. The route is easy enough to follow and not to steep. We would definitely recommend Varinda resort to families visiting this area.

I have stayed here a few times and keep coming back for fantastic service and the beautiful funky place that it is. It is comprised of around sixty chalets laid out on well manicured grounds with lots of home art and creativity. The owners have been able to recycle so many products it really is like walking around a wonderland in an ever-evolving landscape! They have done a super job in leading the way for all of us. I should add that the food is superb, the rooms all large (the ones I have stayed in) and very comfortable and all topped off with a stunning swimming pool overlooking Lamai town, I highly recommend a stay!

Absolutely love this place. All the staff are so friendly and hospitable. The entire place is so serene. You first feel you are in the middle of the jungle but as you walk through you are awarded with amazing coastal views, a lovely pool area and a peaceful restaurant which all show the view of the ocean. Highly recommend for anyone including families this place provides for all.

When I moved from the North of Ko Samui (Bo Phut) to the South (Lamai) seeking for a new long staying accomodation, I could not imagine I met a magical Place as Varinda. Was it by accident? Or, rather, was the Energy of this incredible place to take me there? I believe the second choice. As soon as I spoke to the manager, Miss Oil, I decided to stay. I felt good. I felt at home. Since then, many years have passed by, and I still go to Varinda for spending long time writing vacations and enjoyng my life, now enriched by the new born Varinda Family TJ, who laughs and smiles everytime I speak to him. Varinda family is great, charmy, friendly, warm and kind, always available to help you in any need you may express. Varinda Garden Resort is the best place to stay in this unbelieveble island. The buildings are wooden made, colourful, happy. The location, on the top of a hill is magnificent, as it dominates the whole Lamai Beach (look at the night pic I personally took). The garden is perfectly kept with plenty of tropical trees and flowers. The swimming pool is located on the very top of the hill, and actually now you can enjoy not one but three different swimming pools according to the needs of anyone. Ultimately, Varinda is a quite, fashinating, charmy, awsome place for everyone. You may meet singles like me, or couples, families, groups, but the atmosphere is always so serene and relaxed that no noise will annoy you. Last but not least, what about the food? It would take me to write a novel only to describe how it ìs safe, delightful, and delicious. You must try it, you must taste it. It's pure love for your mouth. And, finally, the staff is always kind, trusted, and respectful. In June, or in the first days of July (2022), I'll be heading again to Thailand. Try to guess where I'm going to stay...

Wow what a hotel! My family and I (me, hubby, 3yr and 5yr old) just stayed for 4 nights! The bungalow was basic but lovely and spacious, very quiet being up the hill and away from hustle and bustle of town. Was a little nervous about walk to town but it was actually super easy even with two little ones. Staff were wonderful. Always happy to help if we had any Q but gave us space to just get on with our day. And being an animal lover the resident dogs coming up to say hello most days made me happy! The absolute highlight though was the pool area! WOW WOW WOW! We literally spent hours all swimming and playing in it! Overall absolutely blown away. So bright, colourful and clearly built up over time with love. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for something a bit more authentic!

Looking for a cool hotel in the nature in Thailand? This is THE SPOT in the mountain of Koh Samui island. You will surely meet friends along the way! Get inspired on your way there by wellbeing sayings on the wall and all the colors that give a happy and cosy vibe to it, not to mention the family that owns it who are the best hosts 😍 you can enjoy the view of the island at the pool and drink good cocktail and eat authentic Thai food! This place is also good for animal lovers, families, couples, everyone can feel welcomed. It is not too far from downtown.

Varinda is a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Lamai. The place is charming and quirky and allows for a sense of calming and well being. The family are welcoming and speak very good English. The views are fantastic and the pool and restaurant area offer a serene experience. The food is very good and the staff are very kind and friendly. The beach and bars are a short walk away but then you can return to peace at Varinda .
