“Good mid priced resort on the best part of Chaewang beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

A nice resort at a quiet end of Chaewang, out of the hustle of the main street but only a short 50 baht ride into town. It is a mid priced resort and it lives up to that expectation, certainly there is flashier hotels on the Chaewang strip, but then you will pay much more, so if you like total opulence then pay a bit more and stay elsewhere.
But this hotel is good value for the price you will pay. It is on the best part of the beach in Chaewang, very safe for swimming, ideal for the kids, with plenty of sun lounges so you can keep an eye on them. The pool however was disappointing, quite small and obviously not a focus of the resort, so if you like hanging out around the pool this is not ideal, but the beach makes up for it anyhow.
The rooms are good, although not huge, again you get what you pay for and I think they are satisfactory for the price, we have stayed at much better, but then have paid more for them. We upgraded to a superior room, don't waste your money, except for the two premier suites they are all about the same, in size and comfort. Our superior room was located closer to the beach, but with a slight view only and right opposite the janitors closet, which created a lot of noise at all hours of the day and night. Definitely go for a ocean facing room rather than a road facing.
The staff, typical Thai style are very friendly, their English generally is satisfactory but not excellent, but they are always looking to please. The food at the restaurants was a highlight, we normally prefer to eat outside the resort when we travel, but the food was so good at the resort we ate in more than we normally do. My wife and another friend we were travelling with were gluten free eaters, not an easy task to do in Thailand, gluten free knowledge is almost non existent over there, although the chef at the restaurant went out of his way for the two girls, his effort was really appreciated.
We attended a wedding while at the resort, they did an excellent job of the event, I don't think that could be faulted, if you are considering an event here and this is your price range I am sure you wont be disappointed. Again the food at the buffet meal afterwards was the best I have ever had at a wedding.
Although this is not in the town there is other eating options within walking distance, all were good for the price, especially a small local hut on the beach just to the town side of the resort that did great cheap Thai meals for a quick lunch. Good local massages next to it as well.
My wife said the treatment spa at the resort was very good and value for money. Bar staff were friendly and with six hours a day of happy hours you can't be disappointed.
Overall a good mid priced range resort on an excellent part of the beach, if only a better pool; and slightly larger rooms they could be one of the better on the island.

Room Tip: Go for a ocean facing room. Make sure your room is not near a janitors closet!All room qualities are...

Won a weeks holiday at this resort with a mate and went in with lower expectations seeing as it was all free. My expectations were more than exceeded. The staff and facilities were fabulous. Particularly an intern they had from Netherlands who made our stay even more enjoyable. At times the language barrier between ourselves and the staff could get frustrating but that did not stop the staff from doing anything and everything they could to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. All in all a great hotel to stay at!

We just went to a wedding at this venue and stayed for a week. The Venus is stunning, food is excellent and accommodation comfortable and very clean. Staff were very helpful and free shuttles four times a day made accessing town was very easy. Look forward to visiting there agin soon

Room Tip: Choose a room with ocean views and lower levels ie no high than 2

We have just had our second holiday in two years at Impiana Chaweng Noi. This is an outstanding hotel with great facilities and staff. We were particularly impressed with Ya, one of the Managers, Prayoon, who looked after our booking and John who is one of the Security men out the front of the Hotel. If you are looking for a family friendly hotel and don't want to be kept awake at night by the doof doof of the all night parties at the more central hotels, this is the place to stay.

It is at the very southern end of Chaweng Beach and only 6-7 minutes into town by scooter, THB200 by taxi or THB50 per person on a troop carrier.

Great pool and an excellent beach as well. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Superior Rooms are very spacious

We had a family holiday here for a week and a half and loved it. Amazing vistas very friendly staff. Easy access to everywhere Koh Samui has to offer. Would recommend this resort very highly. Had a great time on the beach and the beach bar is a very relaxed and friendly place. 5 stars.

When we booked the room we had requested two beds, when we checked in we had only got one bed so we were moved to a second room.
In the second room out aircon didn't work so we had notified staff twice and were told that they were "too busy."
When we were approaching staff about these matters the girls at the desk were very rude and not helpful at all.
We were moved to another room and the bed was hard as a rock.
Overall the service was poor and felt like we were a hassle to them, rooms were pokey and small and it would almost be comfier to sleep on the floor.
Only good thing we found about this hotel was the beach.
We checked out of the hotel after one night stay and requested a refund!

Great place. Nice rooms, decor and grounds. We stayed in a "standard room" which faces the road rather than the sea and has no balcony, but are quite spacious. It had a queen bed and a day bed/lounge plus desk. I considered upgrading to a balcony room, with sea views but they were smaller with no lounge, so was happy to stay in the standard room. In addition to standard housekeeping, beach towels and drinking water are replaced daily.
The pool is small but honestly with the beach right there it's hardly used. Plenty of beach chairs with palm trees and umbrellas for shade. There are lounges in the bar area and an air conditioned guest lounge that we used for a few hours while waiting between check out and airport pick up.
The restaurant is very good, a wide ranging menu and reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet is good, with eggs cooked to order, however after a week I did wish for a bit more of a rotation of items. Room services was prompt. The bar is good value at happy hours (of which there are 3 per day!) with 2 for 1 beer and cocktails
The staff are very friendly and helpful, all but a few with excellent English. We were greeted on check in buy staff with a refreshing towel and cold drink, and all paper work done while we reclined on lounges.
Located at the far southern end of Chaweng beach is is quieter that the main restaurant and shopping strip (and a nicer and less crowded beach). It would take about 30 min to walk along the beach to the main strip, however they have a shuttle that takes guests to the shopping district and also picks up 3 times a day, also you can take one of the covered pickup truck taxis out the front for about 50 baht. We did a few day trips and pick up from this location was no issue.
All in all I was very happy with out stay and would love to return and recommend to others.

In the area Dr Fogs restaurant walking distance up the road on the hill looking out of the bay is very nice, it has Italian and Thai food, a bit pricey (for Thailand anyway) but worth it for the view, ambiance, and service.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are larger but face the road and therefore slightly noisy, but still good value.
