“Excellent Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed for 1 week in July 2013 at Chaba Cabana and truely enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and the breakfast too was very nice. There was a problem with communication with staff at the reception, as they did not know much English and it got confusing to relate to them. Management would need someone at every shift who speak fluent English, specially since this language is known world wide.

Myself and a friend (both 21-25 years old) stayed here for 4 nights. Perfect location - right on the beach, close to restuarants, small walk to the main partying areas. Room was big enough for the two of us. They only give you 1 key per room, even after asking they denied us another. This made it hard for us as we did things seperately. You also need to place the key in the slot in order to have power in the room, so we had to come home to a warm room everytime as the aircon wouldn't stay on. Shower is apart of the rest of the bathroom with only a curtain so when showering water would fill the rest of the bathroom floor. The pool is nice but crowded. Lot's of kids here. You have to get up really early if you want to get a lounge by the pool. Although it has it's negatives, it was very cheap so we got our moneys worth.

We've been there 9 nights and it was excelent. The staff is very nice, the food is good, and they cleaned and change the bed every day. The room is big, and with everything u need in it. The location is good because it's a little far from the center-about 10 minuts walk so it's a very good hotel for quite
vication.

I have just returned spending 6 nights at Chaba Cabana Resort. We stayed in a Deluxe Villa which was spacious, clean, very quiet and had everything we needed. We were only a few steps from beach pool and restaurant.My only criticism is that the bed was very hard and I had quite a sore back by the time we left - massage by the pool helped sort that out though. I had a relaxing oil massage which was amazing. C Restaurant which was where we ate breakfast each morning was superbly situated right on the beach - what a way to start the day. Good range of options offered for breakfasts with plenty of fresh fruit. The main areas of the resort were tidy, but some of the other areas could do with a little attention. The main pool area was great, not huge, but adequate for the size of complex and I loved that it was right on the beach. Great beach for children - lagoon beach and not very deep. We enjoyed floating on our lilos (purchased from beach vendor) 10 - 15 min walk along beach to main area of Chaweng or you can take a taxi for 200 baht or hop on one of the little open vans that are constantly passing the gate for 50 baht. We would happily stay here again and think it is good value for money.
One thing I should mention is that I was very ill when we arrived and the staff were amazing. They kept checking that I was okay and let me know there was a doctor available should I need one. I found that very reassuring.
Also when we had no hot water the morning after we arrived but this was sorted within 10 minutes of letting the front desk know.
Thank you for a great stay

My partner and I recently returned from our holiday to Thailand. We staying in chaweng beach at the Chaba Cabana resort for the majority of our trip. The hotel is brilliantly located close to the airport and right on the beach. Not too close too the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Town but only a short 10 min walk along the beach into the heart of the business. The hotel was less modern but had a really tropical feel. To begin with the front desk staff were not warm or friendly towards us, but they were talking and laughing behind the counter to each other. The walk to our room was a little deterring, as it was up like 4 flights of stairs, however the view was AMAZING, worth the climb! Our room was nice, perfect for the 2 of us. The main issue was the water pressure in the shower, it was terrible and practically had a drip to shower under and the aircon was quite loud. After the fist few nights the air con was not very cold so I complained after breakfast to reception, this was not followed up. I then complained about the water pressure AND the aircon the following night as it had completely stopped working. Again, this was not followed up with us or any information relayed to us. It came to our second last morning in the hotel and I had enough so insisted to speak to the General Manage. He was absolutely lovely, and treated us with such grace. The problems with the room could not be rectified straight away so he insisted we move rooms for our final night. He put us in a private villa, so amazingly stunning and gave us a complimentary massage each as well as a bottle of wine and dinner for 2, all you can eat buffet. Although there were hiccups the way the problem was rectified really made our trip. This is a lovely hotel with just a few things I would change. Thank you Chaba Cabana :)

Room Tip: Ask what level you are on, the bungalows are nice and close to the beach.

We stayed here over the end of June and the beginning of July. We had a wonderful time on Samui. The hotel was perfectly positioned for us. Not quite in the hustle and bustle, but a short walk or scooter ride into the heart of it.

We had one negative though. On arrival our room was not ready yet, as apparently the current guests in our allocated room had not left yet. We had to leave our baggage in a friends room while they sorted this out. Our room was only ready after 15:00! This was the only hiccup.

The pool at the beach is great, and so are the girls who give the massages!

I would definitely recommend the hotel, and would stay there again. We had a most pleasant stay.

Chaba Cabana is a great resort. We stayed for 10 days in July. The pool at the beach is fantastic and the location is great. It has the best beach location. The beach is clean, the water clear and the tides are amazing. It is only a short walk 15 mins maximum into the centre of Chaweng. Walk along the beach it is much faster than by road. The breakfast is very good, everything you can want. We did not eat at C Front as it is over priced and they add 10% service fee and 7% tax same deal at pool bar. Happy hour prices are better value for drinks. The beach restaurants along the beach have a great atmosphere and better prices or walk into Chaweng for more choices. Staff managers at breakfast and pool bar (Nok and S) are very friendly. My husband enjoyed the singer at the C Front restaurant at night. The massage ladies are friendly and do a good job. At the top of the hill outside the resort on the corner is a booking agent/car hire and we found them quite helpful and good for booking tours. Also about 3 doors up from there was a nice restaurant (can't remember name but has white chairs).The downside is the beds are hard and the shower in our room was not great. The cleaners leave the doors open when cleaning so lots of mozzies in the room.
Good tours include the Ang Thong national park, and the snorkelling tour to Koh Tao.

We had a great time and thankyou to Chaba Cabana for a great stay.
