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.

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

First they gave us a smelly room where there were no windows and the balcony door could not be to opened (after even staff kicked it a few times to open). And then we changed the room to another which was also smelly (that mainly comes from the bathroom). Wifi was not working properly most of the time (it even... More

At first I really liked the hostel, after being here a little more than a week, I still like it! However future guests should be aware that the reception and the rooms are in two complete different buildings. It takes 4-6 minutes to walk from the rooms to the reception. The rooms had everything described. Hot water, wifi not the... More

Dear reviewer, thank you for your time to make this review. Indeed there are two buildings at the AKWA Guesthouse, both on the main strip of the Chaweng beach-road, about 450 meters (or 4 minutes walk) from each-other. In our second building, during day time, indeed only the maids are present, and there is no reception (which is situated in... More
