We wanted a hotel in a quiet area, but no more than 5 min drive from town center. Chaweng Noi is a beautiful beach and much quieter and way better for swimming than the main Chaweng beach!! The pool is awesome! Huge, clean, plenty of sunbeds and lots of good food, beer, smoothies eg. in the pool restaurant. We had... More

We stayed at First Bungalow for 9 days, and it was perfect for our honeymoon. The room had everything you need and was comfortable. The beach and pool were perfect, clean, and never crowded at all.

We spent 5 nights in a pool side bungalow at the resort and found it to be spacious, clean and comfortable. Our room had a lovely porch which overlooked the pool through the tropical garden. The resort has a huge swimming pool which we enjoyed taking a dip in when we returned from the beach or a day of sight... More

We just spent 3 weeks here in December 2013. It was not overcrowded, which is nice. Nice rooms, clean. Great staff. Great beach. A bit out of the way, which was why we chose it, a bit quit :-) We would go here again
