Extremely disappointed by this review. During the stay of this young male couple (their second or third stay with us, so we can't be that bad), unfortunately indeed we had problems with water and electric on Koh Samui. These issues on the Island happen fully out of our control. We explain this during check in; we have different back up... More

We loved Chaweng beach. Absolutely best beach on Koh Samui. Our stay at Akwa was great; the beach is just a short walk from the rooms, but also the center with all entertainment was just 20 minutes to walk. Very nicely decorated clean room. Big comfortable bed but a small bathroom. The restaurant was 3 minutes walk, and their food... More

Good staff, Nice rooms, cheap price for room. Good location for party and nightlife lovers. But wifi connection in room is bad. Please, repair wifi router to establish good quality connection. It is good: In Akwa restaurant you can take discount for menu!

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We are glad you liked your stay with us. I have changed the router/access point on the second floor to a more power-full one; now also the rooms are the end of the top floor have a very power-full WiFi signal, so you can even connect with your wifi cell phone. Kind regards... More

When you walk into Akwa, it will make you smile. Mickey Mouse waves you in, bright colours surround you, and naughty little lampshades wiggle their bits at you. The reception is closed most of the time in the main hotel, but a short walk around the corner to the cafe bar and you will find the owner who will welcome... More

I stayed at Akwa with my boyfriend in July 2012, and I am so surprised at all the negative reviews I had to make my (late) contribution. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a superior room which was great after a long, longgg journey. For £10 a night you get comfortable beds, air con, DVD player and DVDs and a... More

My friend and I spend two weeks on Koh Samui, exploring the different beaches. Chaweng was the most beautiful one, and our stay at akwa was absolutely brilliant. Martin and his staff did everything to help us explore the different site seeing spots, giving some great advices on where to go. The room was very spacious and absolutely clean. Bathroom... More

I booked this hotel via agoda after reading about it in the lonely planet & also tripadvisor. I was worried about the negative comments on tripadvisor but I still booked as others had had a great stay at Akwa so I was hopeful. The stairs to get to the room were difficult and dangerous, the room had a funny smell... More

Dear reviewer, Thank you for your review. At your second day of stay when we met at our reception, you indeed mentioned you would give us a "zero" points on Tripadvisor, based on the fact that the hot-water installation didn't worked, and the fact you heard people having sex (twice!!) in the room beside yours. I apologized for the hotwater... More

One of those places you arrive to and expect a lot more from the pictures. Not akwa's fault we arrived from chiang Mai and the prices in Samui are much higher for much less quality. Staff weren't friendly but that doesn't matter much. We were shuttled to another location where no services existed. Wifi worked about 5% of time (we... More

We stayed at this guest house whilst glampacking in Thailand, for ten pounds a night they had clean rooms, air con and a shower - basically all you need when you're doing what we did. The GH is at the slightly quieter side of chaweng beach which we were glad of as for 150 baht we rented a scooter and... More
