We have experienced a very nice and comfortable happy hour on the beach of the hotel Malibu during twilight. The local life musician had put the present guest into very good humor and the service of staff was fully attentively and very friendly. A memorable and exciting event, you should not miss. Absolutely recommendable to attend before join in the night life in Chaweng. You won't regret.

I and my mother stayed at Malibu for 8 nights. The hotel is located center of Chaweng so you would not be bored even staying for long time. Deluxe room is very spacious and clean. I have stayed standard room though deluxe room is much better!!
Staffs are always helpful, kind and friendly, especially restaurant staffs!! I enjoyed chatting with them all the time :) As we had some cloudy days we joined Thai cooking class. Our menu were Spicy prawn salad, Tom yam goong and Green curry, you can choose what you want to learn. We took so many photos together and this is good memory for me.
Not only the staff, also I enjoyed to chatting with other guests :)
I recommend Malibu for who are not looking for luxury stay because Malibu is simple and at homing :))
Thank you, Mr. Leo, Lin, Manager JJ and all the staff of Malibu!!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are spacious and sunny, I recommend 2nd floor.

Dear japple,

Thank you for your time sharing experiences of 8 days stay at Malibu Beach Resort
I have passed your nice feedback to all staff especially LEO, LIN, and the girl who do your Thai food cooking class. They are so proud to learn that you are happy with theirs services.I agree that Malibu is a small simple hotel with very comfortable for any action in Chaweng Beach. Our Deluxe room is great, and we also have simple standard and superior room which is lower budget alternative. The hotel is suitable for traveler who not expect Luxury hotel property, but you can expect for 5 stars services. As we provide varieties activities such as Cooking class, happy hour whole day, live music on the beach every Thursday evening, free Wifi, Free sunbed (hotel guests first) and of course hotel are at middle of thousand restaurants and bars for your choice.
Japple, thanks again for your kind support Malibu Beach Resort and recommend our place, we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

Best regards,

Manager of Malibu Beach Resort.

We did not stay at this resort but went to the restaurant 3 times during our stay which provided free sunbeds, beach towels, wifi and all cocktails for 80 baht. Excellent service from staff. Good food and in the evenings, there was lovely live entertainment which made for a chilled evening. Would definitely recommend for a day at the beach.

I stayed in the sister hotel paradise beach resort in mae nam and used there free shuttle bus into chaweng which stops off at the malibu beach resort, This hotel has prime location 2 min walk to new central festival shopping mall and restaurants and 5 min walk from main night life, but what makes this hotel is the quiet setting, the rooms look nice, Before going out in chaweng I would go to the beach front area of the hotel where I was treated like a guest and relaxed each time by having a meal or just a drink in take in the views which are great, at night fishing boats with green lanterns on the horizon look magical the staff here take time to talk even seat with you for a chat if needed whilst doing there job which as a solo traveller is a god send, thank you (Lin) who is from the philippines for the chats, meals and service excellent,pool looks nice and clean with people enjoying themselves using it. stay here if you want a main resort central location easy to find.

Previously had been here on numerous occasions, and had very high ratings of the restaurant, bar and staff, but do not know what has happened. Dead, desserted not like what it was before. Was abuzz before but lacks everything, no motivation by staff, lack of staff. Used to be a very pleasant place and had great staff, don't know if its a new owner or management ???but please bring it back to what it was. Alot of staff we used to know are gone, whether dismissed or thought they could do better just bring them back they did alot more than whats happening now. Hope not to disappoint you BUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE????

Dear Maree O,
Thank you very much for re -visiting our Restaurant and thanks for the constructive feedback given. I was very disappointed to read that we fell short of your expectation on the atmosphere and quality of services provided. You are right that we lost few staff who used to serve and entertain you for previous visit. They resigned and moved to other hotel which is better opportunity for their career and future. We support them to get challenges and better benefit which good for their family.
Maree O, I sincerely apologize for failing to meet your expectations. We do take your comments seriously, and I have shared your comments with the Restaurant Team. They all are new, start joining us end of April, just after you visited our restaurant which you did not see them. Because I know that these people are very good at services, friendly, helpful and sincerely as you can see from few lately review about our staff on Tripadvisor.

However, I have spent time sitting with new Food & Beverage Manager about your feedback in order for him to address these concerning areas. He will ensure that the similar experiences that you have met last time will not happen on his term. We have lot of guests who did not stay in the hotel but keep coming back to enjoy our Sunset Restaurant and chatting with our staff.

Maree O, thanks again for taking the time to provide your feedback on your return visiting. It is helpful to receive constructive criticism from our loyal guests. Please give us another chance to prove what I have said if you visit Koh Samui. Or should you like to discuss your comments further, please kindly contact me at : gm@samuiparadisebeach.com

Best regards,

Management of Malibu Beach Resort
