Great welcome! Very helpful young guy works the front desk, always happy to help! Nice place, we ended up staying twice, I prebooked the Malibu resort for a couple of days when we arrived in the Islands and enjoyed our stay so much that I booked it again for the end of our trip when we returned to Samui for...

Room: Rooms are very dated and not well kept or maintained. The bathroom was the worst of all with low water pressure and inconsistent temperature. Scolding hot to cold in 5 seconds without a touch of the faucet. Cleanliness: The rooms were very dirty, and are not cleaned thoroughly. Despite leaving a daily tip, the rooms were never cleaned to... More

The location is good. The breakfast is fine. The price we paid wasn't bad but the room was awful. It's too bad i didn't take pictures. There is no hot water. The smell is bad like you can smell the sewage. The bed is not comfortable. This is the type of hotel that can ruin your vacation. Make sure to... More

Stayed 7 nights at this hotel. Booked a log cabin, the door wouldn't close properly and safe in room didn't work and room was very dark. Asked to be moved to another room which i believe was the deluxe. The hot water in this room was either boiling or freezing. Asked to be moved or if they could fix the... More

Rooms: I stayed in one of the standard rooms for 10 days. You could see that the the rooms are quite old, as some things were fixed temporarily but not professionally (the door lock was missing one screw). The Venetian blinds at the windows and the front door were a little shabby. You could not pull most of them up... More

But thats really where the awesomeness ends because this resort is old, tired, dirty & needs... More

We didnt stay at this hotel, however we went here twice for cocktails and dinner. 80 baht cocktails (under $3 aussie). Best price in Chaweng Beach! My favourite was Banana Colada. At night tables were set up on beach. Ken and the other staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us. He even let us choose some music... More

Right in the heart of Chaweng just across from Central Festival and fronting onto the beach this hotel has everything going for it and is in a fantastic location. Sadly though they suffered from execution problems during the construction of this resort that seriously let it down and ruin what could be one of the best boutique resorts in Samui.... More

We planned on staying in Chaweng for 2nights. However, because of both the location of this resort and the helpfulness of the staff we ended up staying two weeks. The front of the resort is on the Main Street, opposite the Central Shopping Centre. The back of the resort opens onto the beach where guests have complimentary deck chairs and... More
