Samui Beach Apartments is seemingly not known to anyone on Samui. However it is located at Seascape, Chaweng Beach. This should work. If still your driver doesn’t know then ask him to take you to South Chaweng Beach, to Poppies. From there it is next door.
The room itself is spot on, expensive by Thai standards but one of the cheapest places we found that fitted our need on Chaweng Beach, which, of course is where you want to be and the best beach on Samui.
The kitchen is more than enough though the addition of a hob would be a valuable addition. You get a bottle of water daily and the beds were comfy and we had loads of room. Perhaps too much, the room was so big it looked a little sparse. The TV had a few English channels but nothing special and the Wifi was a bit touch and go, but free nonetheless.
The beach is stunning and about a minutes’ walk from reception and is one of the best beaches in Thailand for kids. There was little surf, it was shallow, warm and the white sand was only about 2 meter back from the waterline. The free lounger for the day made chilling out all the better.
The main problem, and probably only real problem with Samui Beach Apartments are the staff, but not all of them. Some of them really do not want to be working there, it is plain to see. Don’t expect a smile, or a hello and when you ask for something, like a padlock for lockers (which are a really welcome and free service) you get the look. You know when you tell your wife you’ll be home for ten and you stumble in at midnight expecting her to be in bed. She is sat watching TV and gives you that ‘look’ the kind that if it could kill you would drop dead on the spot. Well that’s the look you get when you ask for something at reception. I am not joking, we stayed there twice and both times experienced the same thing. The guy who took us to our room was stomping around and looking like he was working his thousandth constant hour of overtime.
If you can ignore the resentment some of the staff have toward you being a guest, then Samui Beach Apartments is as near to perfect for families as you will get on Chaweng beach.
