I absolutely loved this place. We arrived and were greeted by the owner and his family. They showed us to our bungalow just steps from the beach (and with a view) which was very nice. The owner told is later that he had been renovating the rooms and you could see he was very proud of it.

The owner checked to make sure the room was to our liking and we laid on the beautiful beach in front of the resort.

Later we had dinner at the restaurant at the resort and it was delicious. The owner checked to make sure our food was good and sat with us for awhile and talked about the island.

The customer service was the best I had in Thailand. My only regret is that I only stayed one night. The resort is also walking distance to the ferry but I would definitely stay a few more nights here next time before visiting the other islands.

We only popped in for breakfast but fell in love with Shadys. Run by a very sweet Thai lady, food was dirt cheap and tasty - I assume the price of accommodation was also very low. It's a bit basic but very charming. Location is excellent and the resort opens right on to the beach.

While staying further east in a Bophut apartment, the beach outside Shady fast became our favourite spot both for day time sun bathing and a sunset dip. The stretch here is full of locals during sunset, since it's easily accessed by public road and the swimming is great regardless of tidal conditions. The name is based on the palms here giving plenty of natural shade all day long. If you stay here you have plenty of choise for food in Mae Nam, both cheap thai joints that serve yummy local food and great restaurants even by developed standards like Barracuda. It's also a 5-10 minute stroll past the nearby luxury resort to some chill beach bars.

We decided to check into their beachfront villa for one of our last weekends on the island just to be able to hang out for longer, and the accomodation is great value for the area.

People rave about Silver beach, but this stretch of Mae Nam is my favourite for swimming on Samui. Almost reluctant to say so here, but the Shady deserves some more business.

Room Tip: The beachfront villa has bedroom windows that open up towards the sea. It also has a separate living...

We hadn't booked anything upon arriving on Koh Samui and stumbled upon this place. We loved it! It sticks out by being the only place on the beach where each bungalow is a different color. Many of them had been completely renovated with new appliances and bedding. The staff (although small) is amongst the friendliest I've experienced anywhere in my travels. You might want to skip eating at the onsite restaurant if you're wanting a classier meal, but great for lunch or mid day snacks. Would definitely go back! Shady....Resort!
