I did love it there but apparently it has closed. Can anyone confirm if it is being refurbished or has been bulldozed. Any info on what is happening with it would be appreciated. I miss this place and am in withdrawal.

Muang Kulaypan is a beautiful 'eco friendly' traditional 'Thai Zen' hotel in North Chewang and right on the beach. This is not a resort and not somewhere I'd recommend for a family with children, but excellent for couples or singles. The hotel is amazing, it's very different to the run of the mill resorts, the rooms are beautiful and all... More

Was there in 2005 with my ex-wife, recommended by Design Hotels - we liked the purist style then, but on several visits to Samui I had a look around the property, and it looked pretty run-down. Rumours have it that it has shut down for now and is being replaced by a new resort.

After hours of research for many weeks prior to our trip I did research on somewhere to stay for our week in Koh Samui. This hotel kept coming up and went to the top of our short list based on travellers' reviews, price and location. We were looking for a mid-range resort style on the beach which was not far... More

I stayed here with friends for 8 days in May. The location is ok, a nice 10-15 walk into the main Chaweng beach area and plenty of transport available on the road. The hotel is very old and in urgent need of renovations, I'm not sure if this is planned or not. The railings on the fences on the balcony... More

Ok hotel at a quiet location on Chaweng beach. Close to center of Chaweng and very close to ATM and small convenience stores. The rooms somewhat run down but tidy. Staff was ok. Overall, there was a feeling that management and staff didn't really cared about the hotel or about it's guests. The beach was ok but the water was... More

A special hotel at the beach in a quiet spot of Chaweng beach. The hotel with an eastern allure that provides a serene athmosphere. The rooms are nicely designed with an elegantly eastern touch.

We stayed here for 9 nights from 21/7/15. 2 adults and our 2 teenage children. We had interconnecting rooms which were fine but a little dark. Didn't bother us though as we were not intending to spend a lot of time in them anyway. The hotel is balinese style and had a spa like feel. Very clean and helpful staff.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ConceptOnce upon a time, in the ancient kingdom of Muang Kulaypan, Java lived the beautiful Princess Budsaba and her brave Prince Panyee - a great warrior and lover. Their love story played muse to folk legend and dance, which travelled over the oceans to the Royal Courts of Ancient Siam. Muang Kulaypan, Koh Samui has drawn inspiration from the legend from which it derives many of its unique architectural traits ensuring the legend of the Budsaba and Panyee still live on today.All rooms and suites surround the expansive landscaping of the Muang Kulaypan central gardens, swimming pool and stretch of golden sand as the shallow cool waters of Chaweng Beach lap against the shoreline. The accommodation buildings merge seamlessly and effortlessly with the lush green foliage, whilst unique sculpture's and artifacts pose scattered throughout the grounds. The raw design and distinct use of culture provide the resort with a timeless appeal and guests an impression of true sanctuary. Location Nestled at the northern entrance to Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui's premier tourism arena, Muang Kulaypan provides convenient access to shopping, activities and nightlife without overcrowding or congestion. This ideal location is within a mere ten minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport. ... more   less
