When choosing accommodation in Koh Samui there were a couple of prerequisites:
1/ View of the sea from our balcony
2/ Beach Front Location
3/ Central Location
4/ reasonably priced
Our timing wasn’t great as we were staying during one of their peak seasons where prices can rise by up to 50% in some resorts. The Aloha ticked all the boxes so we decided on a grand deluxe seaview room which by comparison wasn’t a lot more than their other rooms.
The hotel is laid out in such a way that most rooms receive a seaview, except maybe the ground floor rooms which are geared towards families with young children so they don’t need to worry too much about climbing stairs but are still in close proximity to the pool and the beach. The bungalows seemed quite cute but are located behind the northern wing so they also do not have a seaview.
Upon arrival (around 11pm, about 8 hours late thanks to Bangkok Airways) there were a couple of other parties signing in at the same time and the check in person handles us all at the same time, I was truly impressed with her skills .We were taken to our room which was located the northern wing and had a great view of the grounds, the pool and the sea. The room was huge. It had an entry, huge bed, large sofa, good sized bathroom with separate shower and bath. There was plenty of room for us to ‘drop’ things without having to find a place where we wouldn’t trip over them. It would be still be spacious with a couple of single beds in the room. The only thing missing was blockout curtains. Our room was pristine atfer being cleaned each day.
Breakfast was included and offered a great variety, including egg chefs and the head chef was out talking to guests most mornings to make sure the guests were happy with their food.
I’ve lost count of the number of resorts I’ve stayed at where the guest grab towels first thing in the morning to stake their claim to the lounges but despite this, and it being peak season, there still seemed to be enough lounges available with a choice of sunny or shaded spots. On a couple of days they were in short supply but by no means were they exhausted. A couple of the lounges were in need of minor repairs and we did see some of them being fixed. The pool area is great and has lovely views of the ocean. The beach was pristine with the occasional person taking a seat on the beach.
We did encounter a couple of blackouts, at least one of which extended along the beach, when power was returned and one of our lights wouldn’t turn off, this was around 11pm. The maintenance person fixed it within a couple of minutes of us reporting it.
We decided to have a massage on the day before we left which is perched above the pool with a commanding view of the beach. The massage was brilliant, and very reasonably priced.
We also hired a vehicle for a couple of days through their tourist desk which offered good value and we had the extra added bonus of being able to park it on site. It’s a great way to see the island at your own pace and at around $30 a day, including insurance offers good value particularly if you consider a one way trip to Chaweng by taxi is around $13AUD fixed price.
What this hotel offers is a relaxed vibe, great location, excellent layout, a beautiful beach, great service and has Lamai’s main drag just out the front of the hotel. The staff are efficient and friendly, it offers true value for money, it’s definitely at the top of my list.
It’s quality 3 ½ star accommodation.

Room tip: Walk north up the beach, there's lots of restaurants/bars to choose from that are witihin a short walking distance of the hotel

I was there for my honeymoon and what a wonderful surprise it was. Koh Samui was a last minute addition to our itinerary. Koh Samui is usually a quite/ romantic place in Thailand and is on the Thailand sea side(compared to the more commercial Andaman sea side). Looked up the Aloha, found the pictures beautiful and booked it.

Now the lie. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the hotel and its setting is. The resort (more a hotel) is just a few yards off the main road and right on the beach. The room we stayed had a majestic view of the pool and then the sea. The room was very very beautiful and most amenities provided were top class. The hotel staff although friendly, were not that intrusive (which was according to our liking, but some may find them to be lazy). The pool was great as was the private beach. We used to laze for hours on the balcony viewing the sea. The restaurant was a letdown as was the breakfast buffet served.

But all of this negatives were offset by the wonderful two days we had there. There were very few guests the time we visited (any ways the hotel doesn't have many rooms) and so we had the entire hotel/beach to ourselves. In the evening they arranged a beautiful dinner for us with flying candles & all. My wife still swoons on that evening as do i...

Room tip: Book in advance (especially the peak months) as numbers get sold out easily. Insist on sea facing ones (not garden facing) and on the first/2nd floor (don't remember f they have a third)

We had the family room and found it worked well for us. It had a very large balcony with a great view of the pool, beach and sea. Its got one bath room and one main entrance with 2 bedrooms. The kids(3 & almost 5yrs) had a great time in the pool. Its got 2 smaller pools within the larger pool that are about 2 feet deep. Our 3yr old could stand up in the main pools shallow end. The hotel is positioned right on the beach front with a shower so you can wash sand and sea off before heading back to the pool or to your room. The beach is very nice too, the kids had endless fun playing in the sand. The beach remains lovely even at low tide. I'm told down the other end(where the more expensive places are)the beach is not very nice at low tide. The breakfast had alot of choices cereals,toast,muffins,fruit, cooked to order eggs or omelettes, and usually 4 or 5 other hot choices with tea,coffee and juices etc. You are in asia and they are trying to cook euorpean foods ie pancakes bacon etc using asian ingredients so it doesn't always taste like home. We never had any other meals at the hotel so can't comment any further on hotel food. There is a 7 eleven right across the road which is very handy. We found all the hotel staff very lovely during our stay.Its not the ritz so as long as thats not what your expecting then you should have a great time. We found the local 'bus' (ute with seats on the back)very handy and very cheap. It was about 20 baht to get from hotel to 'mall' which had a small food court and supermarket which was air conditioned. Tip for food court, you need to get a card from lady in booth and load baht onto it then the food places swipe card. At the end you can get back any money left on it. We found this a good place for the kids to have lunch some days as it was air conditioned and they enjoyed the bus ride there.

We stayed here for three weeks as a family of 9. The staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was great, we had a one bedroom apartment and two bedroom suite with a sea view which was brilliant, clean and spacious. The hotel is on the beachfront and there is a cool bar called the 'jamaica bar' a stones throw away.

The hotel is in a great location.....close to a wealth of bars, clubs, pubs, restaurants and shops! We went to the BAUHAUS many evenings and had fun at the foam parties!

We visited a number of attractions which we either used the hotel taxi, tuk tuk or local taxi who will stay with you all day. Make sure you visit, Big Buddah, fisherman's village, hin ta and hin yai, namuang waterfalls and national park (ride on a elephant), wat plei nam and chaweng shopping and much more.

Overall, the hotel is a great base for visiting attractions, beachfront and great pool!
