“Nice location, good and bad parts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The hotel was not a far walk from the bustling street. The staff/ladyboy was friendly and helpful. There's a 7/11 across the street and a few travel agencies, but the hotel had the best price for our trip to Surat Thani airport. Rooms were nice on first glance. Very clean looking. It even had an extra sleeping area- a twin sized bed. There was a restuarant right on the beach. The beach looked pretty nice.

The first time the pressure of the shower was very low and dissapointing. We found that when you make the water cooler it increased. But, the second time it was much better. I didnt like the window that opened from the bathroom. It gave the room place more character, but it was right over the bed. There was a bug in the bathroom, so worried it would come out of the window to the bed. The door, also serves as the patio door, so if you open the curtains, everyone walking by can see into your room. Breakfast not included.

Fantastic resort for a familly. Ask house nr A01. We are a fam. of 4 and the house was huge...plenty of space, clean, nicelly decorated, airco, safe, fridge and two bathrooms. The small terrasse is great for an evening drink.
The receptinists are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant staff is discret not pushy and the food is yamie so as the cocktails.
The pool is nice.
Other places around this resort are very stiff and poshy...Chalala is cosy and easy going.
Enjoy

This hotel is not big ,but it's very smart. It makes us feeling comfortable. Charming swimming pool, warm greeting, nice staff. Good location. For example, we will move to another hotel at 12:00 that morning. I'm afraid that hotel would forgot or late to pick us up, so I asked this hotel staff to check with next hotel for us. When I talked with them, they told me that they already confirm with the next hotel. They are very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms near the swimming pool.

Although we didn't stay at this Resort, we stayed in a nearby resort, we dined here twice on our 8 day holiday. The food was by far the best quality we had. The flavours were just divine and the staff were lovely. The view across the ocean was relaxing and the vibe perfect to remind you where you are on holiday.

I would recommend this casual dining restaurant to anyone who is looking forward to a night out. Also they had happy hour too and cocktails were only $99 Baht. The best thing is they didn't reduce the size of the glass, you got standard cocktail for the price. Reasonable food, wonderful flavour!

Chalala was one of my favorite places in Thailand. wonderfully quirky bungalows right on the beach at quiet end of beach. quite a way from ferry port but lots of transport available, local trucks cheapest way, 100 baht each. Rooms had WiFi, air con, safe, free water and toiletries. Nice pool and sun beds. Restaurant on beach not bad value but lots of places nearby. Usual 7/11 and shops close by. Sea was very shallow for a long way out. Not so good for snorkeling. Would stay here anytime.

This is a lovely little place to stay. Position on outskirts of chaweng about 15 minute walk to centre. The chalets are real hip hop suitable for anyone except perhaps if you cant manage steps as they are split level. A lovely ambiance and very quiet. Very clean. The staff are helpful, lovely little pool area with sunbeds and nearly on the beach. Everything is on hand from restaurants supermarket massage beauty laundry all within a 2 minute walk. The only minus would be that the food in the restaurant is really naff, not dirty or anything just not good, but lots of other places for breakfast and dinner so dont be put off by this.

Room Tip: All the chalets are kwirky and individual

This was the perfect place for us to stay on Samui. Chalala is at the quiet northern end of Chaweng, well away from the nightclubs but only 10 minutes' walk into town so lots of shopping and food choices for the boys.

The resort itself is tiny (about 30 rooms) and the staff know you by sight very quickly. Jazz at reception is really helpful and happy to share her knowledge - she also knew me by name every time I saw her! It's a small resort with a decent pool (not too big) and bungalow style accommodation. It has its own massage hut on the beach and the restaurant/bar overlooks the beach, as well as having tables on the sand. The food isn't overly cheap but is good value by Samui standards. There's a 7-11 and a pharmacy directly opposite, and the laundry to the left of its entrance does washing very economically. It's not a 5-star resort, but is clean, friendly, has great quirky rooms and has everything we needed for a lovely stay. I'll happily stay there again next time.
