beachside bungalows were fab, lovely clean beach in a beautiful bay. Staff all very lovely, yellow noodles in the beach bar were amazing. Only thing that lets them down is they run out of lots of food. Would definitely return though

The hotel is located at Chaweng Noi a smaller part of Chaweng Beach. There is free sunbeds, a beachbar and the staff is very friendly. We asked for superior rooms on ground floor and they fixed it. Unfortunately the first rooms we got were being renovated so we were moved to other rooms that were worn down. The pool area...

The location is pretty good as it is in the very end of the beach. Naturally the center of the beach is the busiest area, if you want more action. Food was great, people were friendly and scenery was really wonderful. It is only a few minutes walk to the main shopping street (right next to the beach), filled with...

The best thing was the large swimming pool with ample sun beds. Our deluxe double room was small and noisy and our balcony view was blocked by another building. The Breakfast buffet was adequate. The resort is quite a distance from town. I think there are better accommodation options in Chaweng.

Great place. Close enough to everything. But far enough to not hear all the night noise. Lovely place on the beach. We stayed in a beach Bungalow but other stayed in the other rooms and I heard not complaints. Great big pool with a bar next to it that serves good and drink. Breakfast was good with a beach view....

I stayed here for a week with a big group for a friends wedding. The pool and beach were lovely, easy to go between the two. Unfortunately, the reception staff was terribly unhelpful and seemed annoyed if you asked any questions. The food was okay, but nothing exceptional. Although the room (deluxe bungalow) was quite spacious and clean, the beds...

Had a very nice tine, rooms are spacious and clean with good wifi. If you book a cheap, basic room as we did there was a tiny balcony that looks directly onto the neighbouring apartments balcony, absolutely no view at all, nowhere to hang your wet swimsuit, but that didnt bother us as we only stayed 4 nights. The pool...

We have just come home from 2 lovely weeks staying at this resort. Our beach bungalow was exactly that only 3 feet from the sand. Breakfast was great plenty to choose from. The facilities are ample with beach towels etc. The only moan is that the beds were really hard otherwise what a fantastic location definitely worth a visit. We...

Great location just a few delightful steps to the beautiful sandy beach. Sweet and smiling staff. Close to restaurants and basic tourist shopping. The pool area is also a great place, although there is no wind, so it is much warmer here the at the beachfront. The breakfast is universal something fore every taste. Loved the guava juice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Reflects from the name itself, the first bungalow type accommodation in Koh Samui and represents the true sense of homely Thai hospitality serve every guests by the owner's family who are always eager to serve you better. it can be seen today with the unique blend of the same old simple, traditional and personalized hospitality of the owner, and all the modern amenities one can dream of in an exotic far-flung island hideout like Chaweng Beach. The style of Individual bungalow is completely "Thai style Architect", just located on white sandy beach among the coconut trees and tropical gardens.
