Nice, Small and peaceful. If you want a budget hotel for a peaceful stay in Koh Samui, this hotel might be your choice. Located at a walking distance from Chaweng beach, it's quite nice and peaceful. If you don't want to stay in a crowd and noisy place you may add this hotel to your list. It's a basic hotel... More

Staff are very welcoming and helpful on arrival, including a free drink when checking in which was a nice touch after travelling for so long! Pool and restaurant are both very good. Room was clean but a little outdated. A decent location if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to main area.

I was impressed with the hotel from the very beginning. The staff was helpful, accommodating and efficient. The breakfast included cooked to order eggs, various fruits, cereal, juice, coffee and different hot items each day. The hotel has a sister location that has a private beach that is just a 5 minute walk. Beach loungers are available and so are... More

This was a pleasant, clean and spacious hotel with friendly staffed and rooms were cleaned every day. We checked out early on our last day and the staff kindly let us stay in the reception and lay by the pool for a good few hours.

after a week in Samui staying at a 5 star hotel, I checked into first residence only for one night at the end of our stay. I must say for the price it is you definitely get a lot for your money .. big rooms, clean, nice pool, restaurant, great location and helpful staff.

We stayed at First Residence for 5 nights as a couple and absolutely loved it. Not only were the rooms exactly as we expected and beautifully cleaned, but the staff were so helpful and lovely to us through our whole visit. From helping us with printing, to finding stamps for me (I looked at about ten different shops, so frustrating!)... More
