Chris and Apple were amazing hosts and so helpful. We had a very relaxing and fun time in Samui! Would definitely recommend!

The couple that run The Boardroom Beach Bungalows are really friendly and accommodating and offered us advice on places we could visit in Koh Samui. Its located in Bangrak which is a slightly quiter beach but thats what we were after. The beach is seconds away and it felt like we had it all to ourselves. I would recommend if you are on a budget.

After reading other reviews that were a bit skeptical, I went ahead and booked this hostel anyway (the budget room with a fan). Upon arrival I did what a lot of other people did--upgraded to the room with AC, which was worth the extra money! The budget room didn't have a mosquito net or good insulation to keep those little buggers out, so I was kind of afraid of getting eaten alive. It's right on the beach so you can walk to other restaurants and bars that are a bit nicer. Good green curry tho!

Cheers Chris for your hospitality and steaks!! I had a great time, just what I was looking for, Sydney took a bit of adjusting mind. It was freezing in comparison

Overall this was a good place to spend a night or two at. Bungalows right by the beach and friendly/helpful owners. Seemed a little far from other places but it was enjoyable.

Great location right on the beach! Staff were really lovely and friendly. Unfortunately the shower was all but a trickle.. Great place for a quiet beachfront couple of nights.

Stayed here for 3 nights, double room with a friend. Bungalows are basic, but have everything you need. 12 second walk to the beach, location is excellent. Bangrak is on the quiet side, it's maybe a 10 minute walk to some of the busier bars and restaurants (check out the boat bar). Apple, the owner is an absolute legend and was very helpful in arranging for our final night back on Koh Samui, answering general questions and assisting us getting back to the airport for an early flight.

Chose this place on a whim and had no regrets at all! The staff were super friendly and had plenty of ideas for places to eat and things to do. It is in a more quiet area so there is nothing to worry about safety wise, and the beach is right there - ready for relaxing with no difficulties at all. Totally recommended!

Spent a lovely two nights here a few weeks ago. The bungalows are basic but clean and with GREAT air conditioning. The beach is lovely with great views. Chris and Apple are lovely, Chris makes great burgers in his bar over the road and Apple was really helpful with organising a transfer for my onward travel. The security is excellent, I felt very secure as a single female traveller, and Chris made me very welcome in his bar.

After a full on week of diving in Koh Tao we were after a few days of relaxing. Chris and Apples place was exactly what we were looking for and its what we got. Right on the beach, the only negative I would say is we arrived too early for the completion of the pool ;) Chris and Apple made us feel right at home straight away, Chris had a scooter sorted out for us and gave some ideas for places, great bars nearby, be sure to catch the BBQ on sundays at Boardroom bar across the road.

Nice, clean accommodation with access to a beautiful beach and close to shops, bars and restaurants. Everyone was friendly especially the owners Chris and Apple who went out of their way to help us have a great time, above and beyond the call of duty, definitely recommended!

More of a chillout place but thats what we wanted. Right on the beach which was great. Quite pricey. Great couple that own the place.
