Tiny Samui Resort Takes Three of the Top 25 Spots in the 2021 Tripadvisor ‘Travelers’ Choice Awards’


Koh Samui, Thailand, May 25, 2021 – With just 24 individual Thai-style cottages, set in enchanting tropical gardens, Poppies Resort Koh Samui could not be happier to be awarded three of the ‘Top 25’ accolades in the coveted annual Tripadvisor ‘Travelers’ Choice Awards’.

Opened in 1994, Poppies Resort is one of the original luxury boutique resorts on the idyllic, tropical island of Koh Samui.

Poppies which has maintained its position in the top 25 of Tripadvisor’s Travelers Choice awards for the last 10 years, is recognized with three mentions this year, including Top 25 Small hotel for Asia, Top 25 Small Hotel for Thailand, and Top 25 in the Romance category for Thailand.

Poppies is the little sister to just one other Poppies in Bali that opened 20 years earlier and which also remains a Top 25 winner of its own for Bali. www.PoppiesBali.com

This achievement celebrates businesses that consistently deliver fantastic experiences to travelers from around the globe, and which have earned great traveler reviews on Tripadvisor over the past 12 months.

“We are very grateful to our many loyal and repeat guests, and to our dedicated staff for their commitment to exceeding guest expectations” said James McManaman, General Manager of Poppies Resort and President of Skål International Koh Samui.

“As travelers look at new options for their holidays, we feel that Poppies with its private, individual garden cottages, set beside one the most stunning and celebrated beaches in Thailand, and indeed Asia, is exactly what travelers are looking for.”

According to Tripadvisor, “The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent – delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience provided to guests in the midst of a pandemic.”
