We loved koh samui and decided to stay longer. For a 4 persons family last minut turned out really hard to book something with a reasonable price. I checked akwa and was a quite good price and I saw the pictures it looked nice and clean. The towels were all broken, like old, the floor and forniture, dusty, the toilette... More

Great value for money. We booked a value deal via booking com for two nights. Our room at the second floor, just in front of the stairs. Really one of the nicest rooms we had during our Thailand trip. The room was absolutely clean enough and the bed large and comfortable. Staff very helpfull (specially the girl with the back... More

Recently stayed for 6 nights at start of July in penthouse. Good value for money. Penthouse big sized room with big balcony to relax and chill out on after a day touring the island or sending on the beach. Resturant in amin building offers a good selection of food with friendly staff. Slight downfalls are the steep stairs, due to... More

Such a disappointment, emailed stating we would arrive around 1030pm, Martin assured us he would be there. Dropped off at Akwa as per directions, opposite Poppies. However note on door to go down the road 500meters. Dragged our luggage down the road, luckily we glanced down a lane way to spot the Awka Guesthouse. Met by a man who showed... More

We stayed in Akwa for a couple of nights in April its a good sized room with a good location in Ko Samui! When we arrived, we found out that the reception is in a different place, but after a quick call the lady (owner I am guessing) came to us to give us they keys and she was very... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We are happy you liked your stay with us. We have replaced the air-conditioner from the room where you stayed in. Indeed it happened that when heavy rain was pouring down, water came in from the top window. We now have installed some protection shields to avoid that. Thank you again for your... More

I stayed here with my three friends for almost a week. Best location in Chaweng we think. Very large room, perfectly clean, with two big beds. Beach is 3 minutes from the place where we stayed, and the party place around 20 minutes walk. We choose this hotel because of the pop art style, and we were not disappointed. No... More

Arrived and instantly ordered food, service was quick, friendly and the food was great (possibly due to the 24 hour journey I'd just taken). A little confusion with the restaurant/reception/hostel being in two different places but not too much fuss. Location was good, short walk to the beach and nightlife. Rooms were cosy and clean, don't bother with the DVDs... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review, we are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the DVD's; we do have plenty of DVD's and books all over our place for our guests to borrow them; indeed some of our guests forget to put the DVD's back in the same cover as from where they took it (or simply...

There wasn't anything too good about this place except maybe the rather large size. We arrived and nobody was there. Sign says it is closed and to call somewhere. As soon as we do this a lady says she works there all of a sudden.. Not sure why she didn't say that minutes ago? So I was weary of giving... More

I didn't make a booking, but just walked in. Visited different other places around, and found a room available at Akwa. Standard room in the building without the reception (when checked in they brought me in their tuk tuk thing, but when walk it's just 3 minutes or so to the restaurant). A small room, but everything you need was... More
