This is not a luxury hotel. If your looking for something cheap and basic this is fine. Rooms are dated and a little grotty eg stains on the walls, dirty grout in the shower, old towels. Location is good 5 min walk to the beach and a few restaurants. Staff are ok not overly friendly Tip - They have a... More

We stayed for two nights in February and were very impressed for what we paid. The room was spacious, clean and had an excellent shower. The staff were extremely helpful, in particular Auddy who helped us organise trips and motorbike hire, he was very obliging throughout our stay. The hotel is slightly out the centre of Chaweng but it is... More

Good hotel with a reasonable price, just at the start of Chaweng beach (its a 30-45 min walk to the hart of Chaweng beach). Friendly staff and nice spacious rooms for the price, perfect value ! Didn't have breakfast, nearby is a good Italian restaurant with good coffee and breakfast. Clean swimming pool with some beds. Would definitely visit again

Having stayed at various hotels/bungalows similar around thailand, First Residence was like heaven! The room was really clean, the hotel was quiet, the staff were attentive and the location was handy, with the main street being a short walk away. The beach was a 5 minute walk (Although I would walk a bit further along the beach before swimming to... More

Basic and clean. Advertised as a budget luxury. Definitely not a luxury hotel. If you want somewhere cheap but clean then it will suit you. If you want some of the perks of a luxury hotel, then this not for you. Towels in the room were so threadbare that I put my hand through two whilst drying myself. However, bedding... More
