After a short stay here in January last year, there was no doubt in my that I wanted to return to dara samui, to enjoy all the hotel has to offer. With great location on the beach which is a 3 minute walk to all the party spots and the perfect distance away so you hear no music at night. Definitely recommend a romantic dinner on the beach, which the hotel offers an amazing setup. All hotel staff Nice and genuine, definitely made us feel very welcome and accommodating to any activities we chose to do outside of the hotel. Rooms are absolutely amazing and great food. Definitely the only place I would stay in koh samui!

We walked In on the off chance to book a room as everywhere was busy due to Chinese New Year & were able to cut a deal for our stay of just over 3 weeks for a substantial reduction & including breakfast!
The hotel location is great, it's at the north end of Chaweng beach which is quieter but within a short walk to all the bars, restaurants & nightlife.
The sea at this end is calmer and great for swimming as a coral reef breaks the incoming waves.
The room we had was spacious with large king size bed, TV DVD player fridge, minibar & tea & coffee making facilities. It had a separate bathroom/shower area and also had a room safe.
Excellent free wifi was provided in all rooms and also on the beach.
Bathrobes were provided and a daily change of bath and hand towels.
Beach bags and beach towels were also provided so they have tried to think of everything.
The hotel staff were excellent and always made you feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble and always done with a smile!
There is a nice beachside pool with direct access onto the beach.
There is limited space for sun beds around the pool and also on the beach at high tide which can cause a problem for guests. Also the hotel offers dining on the beach and creates a romantic setting with linen voiles & lanterns draped from bamboo poles which looks fantastic but this creates a problem for any guests using the sun beds on the beach, because they start to set out the dining tables at around 4 pm and so require guests to give up their sun beds or move if space allows this.
There is a good choice of food for breakfast both hot and cold and also a good choice for evening dining with a great choice of seafood.
Overall we were very pleased with our stay here and the facilities provided and would definitely consider staying here again if coming back to Chaweng.

The staff of the hotel are very kindly to us, there service is very good. The breakfast is good, there are noodles with soap. There is free WiFi everywhere including beach, it very convenient for us. The environment of the hotel is excellent. The Chawen street is in front of the hotel, the beautiful beach is behind the hotel.

Room Tip: The room 234 is good, with beautiful view out of the window. It can be recommended.
