Had a great stay for two nights at First Beach Bungalow. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and service was very good. Perhaps the best part of this resort is how far away it is from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach. This was exactly what I was looking for after a hectic few days in Bangkok. If your looking...

First to counter the negatives of other reviewers...we had no problems with internet, it is slower than we have at home but I guess fibre optic broadband isn't here yet!!!! The staff at reception/bar/cleaners are all wonderfully friendly and happy to help with any query. We stayed in the cheaper rooms in the seperate block, are this is where my... More

Average and overpriced. We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon from 24th to 31st of December. The hotel is not in a good location, you need a taxi or a scooter, which is what we rented. First I will start with the reception. The lady at the reception desk was very unfriendly and upset, which makes difficult to inquire... More

First of all, Chaweng is a great place for hollidays. First Bungalow Beach Resort is located in walking distance to the center where you find great opportunities to go for shopping, bars etc. I recommend renting a motorcycle from the hotel for 200 baht per day. I had a bungalow with beach view. The standard was pretty ok, with air... More

Chaweng is a very busy area with masses of restaurants, bars and shops along the main street. Same, same but different which is so true and you ca get Tee Shirts to prove it. This hotel is at the far end of the beach and much quieter. Just a short walk and you have everything you need. Catch a truck... More

On our recent trip to Koh Samui we had to seek alternative accommodation for 6 nights in the Chaweng Beach area due to major renovations happening at the resort we originally booked. The First Bungalow Resort is located at the quiet end of Chaweng and fronts Chaweng Noi Beach. It is one of the few resorts in that area that... More

Hotel, food, staff, beach, everything is so wonderful. Each time we stay in Samui, we are booking First Bungalow and we feel very comfortable. The dogs on the beach are not a problem. All dogs are healthy and spayed. Thanks to the "Dog and Cat Rescue Samui Foundation", they making a very good job. It is hard to understand some... More

On checking in they couldnt give me the beach/pool view room so I ended up at a view of the garden which was still nice. the room was huge, nice a clean but the beds...awful. The beds are like sleeping on the concrete, so... More

From locating this hotel to checking in, I was skeptical of the class by her name. This is part of the First group of hotels located adjacent. The bungalows on the beach is at great location and the private beach has a lot of privacy. The dining kiosk right on the beach is so convenient and enjoyable. This hotel on... More

After staying 4 days at the other end of Chaweng beach, we were looking at all hotels in the area for a room with a beach view. Most were taken or too expensive. First Bungalows had availability for their beach cottages for just c 4,000 baht (about £80 per night). We got to choose which cottage we wanted and had... More
