Muang Kulaypan Hotel
Ranked #59 of 104 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed February 9, 2009

Good value for money. A bit different. Boutique hotel. Good beachfront location. Best breakfast location in Koh samui where they serve it to you in little private cushioned outdoor huts. But i must say the Amari hotel next door has a superior pool scene.

I've stayed in several hotels in several locations throughout thailand but Muang Kulaypan is by far my favorite. It's a huge piece of property and very green with local flowers and trees. I was surprised to read the mixed reviews. my boyfriend and i have stayed there more than once and are always so happy with the hotel. The service is fantastic, all the staff speak very good english. The rooms are large and quite a sanctuary from the hot sunny days. and all three rooms I've stayed in have an amazing view. The beach is perfect and the view from the cabanas unbeatable, i stayed for hours after breakfast just to read and take in the view. The hotel is quiet, but still in a short stroll to all the party spots. It is a thai style hotel which we like. Since our last visit it has updated several of the rooms making them larger and adding kitchens and sitting rooms. It was another perfect vacation to Samui island, and when work allows... we will be back.

The worst resort i have stayed in EVER. Once a year we like to go somewhere nice and tropical to relax and we had read some rave reviews about Muang Kulaypan. It was so bad that we cut our stay down to two nights and moved on to the Amari. The design is crap and in-habitable. The staff could not speak english and were rude, bathrooms didn't work, the breakfast was stale and in-edible, we couldn't even relax around the pool or on the beach because we were constantly hassled by people trying to sell you things.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
ConceptOnce upon a time, in the ancient kingdom of Muang Kulaypan, Java lived the beautiful Princess Budsaba and her brave Prince Panyee - a great warrior and lover. Their love story played muse to folk legend and dance, which travelled over the oceans to the Royal Courts of Ancient Siam. Muang Kulaypan, Koh Samui has drawn inspiration from the legend from which it derives many of its unique architectural traits ensuring the legend of the Budsaba and Panyee still live on today.All rooms and suites surround the expansive landscaping of the Muang Kulaypan central gardens, swimming pool and stretch of golden sand as the shallow cool waters of Chaweng Beach lap against the shoreline. The accommodation buildings merge seamlessly and effortlessly with the lush green foliage, whilst unique sculpture's and artifacts pose scattered throughout the grounds. The raw design and distinct use of culture provide the resort with a timeless appeal and guests an impression of true sanctuary. Location Nestled at the northern entrance to Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui's premier tourism arena, Muang Kulaypan provides convenient access to shopping, activities and nightlife without overcrowding or congestion. This ideal location is within a mere ten minute drive from Koh Samui International Airport. ... more   less
