This place is right in the heart of Chewang and close to all kinds of services. They have a beautiful of stretch of beach and a nice, if small, pool. There is a bar and restaurant by the pool charging reasonable prices for meals and drinks. The cocktails are watery; stick to beer. The included breakfast I found quite nice...

April 18, 2017. Dear Jtr, Thank you very much for your review in good and perfect details. We offer location and beach and services at affordable rates for guests who want to enjoy long holidays. We definitely have plans to redo the whole resort. The present property is old but we maintain it in reasonable quality. We are nothing luxury....

I enjoyed day use of beach facilities. Cost 200 baht for lounge chair, pool, shower, toilet and WiFi. A good value to live resort life on backpackers budget. The bungalows I past looked very nice but I did not inquire about the cost.

It's not the Ritz, but the location is pretty good at the quieter side of Chaweng. Our room had Aircon, was cleaned, we got fresh towels everyday and the pool area was a bonus. I could be on the beach in 10 seconds walk from my room. It's one of the better stretches of the beach too. For the price...

We visited this hotel as we had stayed here before some years ago. The bungalow is good, the hotel is right on the beach, there is a swimming pool, loungers and bean bags on the sand and you can eat breakfast overlooking the beach. Nothing too special but really good value and close to nice restaurants in Caweng. Recommended if...

If u choose, for convenience to stay in downtown Chasing, and want ez beach access, then this place is fine. Chaweng is not my cup of tea, but we wanted to stay our last night in the belly of the beast, and close to the airport, to maximize our beach time on the last day. This place was fine though...

My wife, daughter and I were disappointed with the place a travel agent booked us in, so we took the suggestion of the girl working at Zing Coffee, which is a great coffee shop attached to the Centara resort, which is the highest-end resort on Chaweng Beach, and walked RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the Tradewinds by Lawana. It offers great...

First off lets talk about the reviewers talking about cats. I have lived here 16 years, and yes the stray cats as well as dogs get taken to the temple. Thai come and feed them everyday. Do not believe they are cruel to animals. I will not say this is a 4 star hotel. Its about hanging on the beach....

I am astounded to find reviews lying to the public, quite clearly, if they have rated this place anything above 2 stars. It is a disgusting dump. Undeservedly, it is placed on one of the most beautiful beaches in Koh Samui. Having said that, Koh Samui has many and Thailand hundreds. This disgraceful dilapidated establishment has the audacity to charge...

Noisy a/c & fridge but otherwise quite quiet despite being in the busy part of Chewang. Badly designed bathroom, shower head practically over the toilet and no curtain, so the toilet area was...
