chaba cabana

Heading off in September,first time to Koh Samui...is the Chaba Cabana Beach Resort to far out from the cafes,bars & restaurants.I've heard that it is about an 40min walk up and down hills.Could anyone suggest a great place to stay right on the beach but not to far away from the night life...

Thanks

Hi

Its only a 15 to 20 min walk along the beach to the centre of Chaweng.Plenty of restaraunts right on the beach by the Chaba also.Have stayed there the last two years and we are back there again in two weeks time. Very friendly and a great place to stay

There are a few "Chabas" on Samui. Chaba Cabana is as said above.

Somebody might have told you about Chaba Grand View which is well above Chaweng.

Thanks for the help....

Another question then...is it safe to walk along the beach at night and how far does the tide come up,and the beach is full of restaurants to choose from too,is that correct.

We have walked along the beach most nights we have stayed at Chaba Cabana and never had any problems at all. There is a walkway beside Amari Hotel which brings you out onto the start of the Chaweng shopping strip.You can also walk through other resorts from the beach to the road with no problem.

Plenty of choice of restaruants with tables set in sand. You will love it.

hi, we stayed here last june. lovely hotel and the pool/ beach are fantastic. the hotel offers its own taxi into chaweng for 200 baht, but it was 300 baht on the way back as they have to follow the one way road system. saves you walking up the steep hill to the main road. on your way up the hill there is a laundry/ massage and then a tour shop where you can change money. they also do taxi,s. tuk tuks pass here quite often. the laundry service is very reasonable, a lot cheaper than the hotel. the wife got everything cleaned and pressed to put into the cases for our trip home. saved a mountain of washing when we got back. proberly only cost us £10 for the lot!!!!!!!

we are going back next january, but we are staying at the chaba samui (sister hotel). this one is in the middle of chawang on the main road. split into two, you got the lake wing and ocean wing. we seen it last year and as we thought that the cabana is a little quiet, weve decided to give this one a go.

if you are undecided, it might be worth you having a look.
