I spent 3 weeks here and it was a more than comfortable, semi-luxurious stay in Chaweng. Had an amazing experience here completing my TEFL training course. The place is quite empty and not too far from the beach. The pool area and bar/restaurant offers both Thai and Western food. Ari who runs the desk is lovely. Wifi wasn't great but... More

I stayed here for the full month of April, as it was the accommodation provided in my TEFL course. The room was amazing, clean, comfy and beautiful. The pool was also very nice. Security is a big thing for me in choosing in places to stay in. This place is not secure at all. The first night we checked in,... More
