“Beautiful place. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

A lovely hotel, even the basic room is amazing!! Food a bit pricey but great quality. Only down point it's quiet far from the town and the taxi prices are ridiculous for a 5 minute ride down the road. We hired a motor bike which was the worse thing as had an accident outside the edgy turning of the hotel. Our arms and legs were injured, the staff all came to our help. They cleaned us up and couldn't do enough to make us feel comfortable. Fantastic and lovely people. Think the lady who helped me was called 'Poh'

Location abit far from Money changers, shops etc. Practically no territory for walking within hotel limits. Beach was abit dirty comparing to hotels located nearby. Very friendly and well qualified service!!! 5+
As this hotel mainly positioned for private holiday which will keep you away from "noise etc" I would strongly recommend to book sea view villas only, in this case you will get as much privacy as you wish as well as very nice facility.

We stayed in a Jacuzzi Villa - I would recommend this or the seaview so that you are off the road. Beautiful, accommodating staff that go out of their way to say hello and to help you enjoy your stay. They have a nice pool that over looks the ocean/beach. The restaurant is fairly priced but there are many cheaper options within a 5 min scooter ride.

The room was very clean and well equipped, we really enjoyed having the beach bags with towels replaced everyday. There is a bit of an issue with shower temperature constantly changing, but not really a deal breaker for me.

On our arrival we were served a welcome drink and cold towels to refresh ourselves which was lovely.

They do have scooters available for 280 THB per day, however immediately across the road has the same scooters for 200 THB a day.

Organizing a taxi through the hotel is 600THB, across the road it is 400THB.

We stayed for 6 nights and to be honest we were sad to say goodbye to the staff just as much as the room. Loved it, would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Get one of the villas not the rooms, and search sites such as hotelcombined.com are able to offer ra...

Great:
The room - spacious with comfortable beds
The bathroom - Tub large enough for 2, great shower
Location - 10 mins scooty ride from the main beach. Peace & quiet but close enough to the action
Service - Always smiling, helpful staff
Pool - Infinity pool overlooking the beach

Not so good:
View - The deluxe room had no 'partial' sea view from any of their rooms as stated on their website.
Wifi - In the rooms it was weak probably because of the rains
Food - It was average

Would I go back? DEFINITELY!

Room Tip: Remember no sea view but great rooms!

Stayed here about 4 years earlier and had a lovely time, was therefore worried that it might have gone downhill in the meantime. However I was not disappointed, the rooms are still lovely, it's on the best beach at Chaweng Noi and is quiet and a little haven. Breakfasts were good, staff excellent and very friendly and a decent gym too if you're interested in that. My only gripe was that the spa rooms we had had a very creaky bed, so if you got up in the night you tended to wake your partner! .....oh and the light bulbs could be brighter too.

Very spacious rooms huge bathrooms with massive bathtub, right on the beach. Very friendly staff, clean. There's nothing negative about it.the location is about 6 km away or 5-10 min ride to main chewang beach but u can hire a motorbike for 280 batt per day. Food is good. Opt for stay with breakfast. As breakfast is also good.

We were in koh samui 2 years ago and came across The Sarann where we stopped for a drink overlooking the beautiful view of the beach. So when we decided to return to koh samui we decided to stay for 5 nights on our first stop in Thailand.
Firstly we upgraded when we got to the hotel after the first night, we were moved to a jacuzzi room, beautiful decor but was just off the roadside and had a very bad smell coming from the air conditioning. We called reception and a lady came to light a candle and spray an air freshener! We returned later that night to the room smelling even worse so we asked to change rooms. We moved to the rooms in front of where we were so further away from the road, However that night when trying to get ready I tried to plug in my hair straightener to find out that the sockets in the bathroom were not working, the shower & taps had no running water!
Also we had no wifi for the last 2 days of been there as it was broken!
We had breakfast on one day - wouldn't recommend.
We had food one night which was lovely.
The staff are all lovely and I understand that this wasn't their doing but...
Overall a disappointing stay, very worn hotel that could do with a bit of TLC and just not what we expected!
