“Baan Chaweng hits the spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2011

I have stayed at many places on Samui, but never have I encountered such great, proffessional, friendly, homely service and smiles than that of this 3 - yes 3! star resort and spa..
I have been overwhelmed by this place, nothing too much of a bother... I'm an easy, and non-expectant traveller who goes with the flow generally. Baan Chaweng superseeded any expectation that I didn't even think I had!
Birthday message on the bed made up of beautiful palm leaves and flowers, roses a pleanty. AND cake! Amazing place!
So close to the beach and, so close to the main drag, no noise issues - do yourself a favour and book this resort!
By the way, the rooms are fantastic. We stayed for nearly 3 weeks!!!

Room Tip: Close to the beach are best. Loved the bungalow near the pool!

Standard room better than Bungalow unit, bathroom bigger newer, room bigger, nicer & newer. We only got two nights at Koh Samui, I thought my Bungalow unit will be better than my friend's standard room, after check the room don't even move my baggage in just take a shower, think of changing room, so I find out with reception after that, I ask politely to a female receptionist, but answer by another male receptionist next to her and in not polite manners, some more there were other customers at the front of him. After this, we decided to move, so we got a much better resort, not far from Baan Chaweng, more services, cheaper, named Ark Bar.

Room Tip: Get a cheaper one at this resort if u prefer to stay here, pls...not to take their Bungalow, cost mo...

I had a great stay here. If you are looking for the most densely populated beach on Ko Samui, that would be Chaweng. Baan Chaweng is right in the middle of the main road, tucked about a one-minute walk back. Very pretty and relaxing with gorgeous foliage.

Service is top-notch. They will go out of their way to assist in any way they can, including calling your touring company if they are late, etc. Also, if you can't make the free breakfast because of a tour, they will have a boxed snack available for you to take. Very nice people!

The rooms themselves are spacious, and the place is quiet. However, if you have trouble sleeping, maybe you want to reconsider- this place is right across the street from some seriously loud night life, and you can hear the bass depending where your room is located. The beach is very nice, and I'd definitely recommend staying here.

By the way, BRING BUGSPRAY with you. You will get eaten alive by mosquitos at night in this place.

Stayed here with a friend while travelling through Thailand in May 2011. Our bungalow was steps away from the beautiful beach and calm aqua blue waters of the sea. Everything was clean and tidy and staff were friendly and helpful, especially in helping to organise day trips. After a couple of days in Ko Tao, which we didn't like as much, we decided to come back to Ko Samui and stay at the Baan Chaweng for the remainder of our stay - we liked it that much. Breakfast was in their patio restaurant which overlooked the beach and their spa offered amazing massage services on the beach at very affordable prices. Beach bars were only steps away as were the clubs and nightlife of Chaweng.

Room Tip: Go for a bungalow near to the beach!

The baan chaweng hotel is located at the best location on chaweng beach.

- cristal clear calm water
- takes long before getting deep
perfect for the kids
- pool is also nice but as the beach is so nice you don't use it that much.
- sufficient beds at the pool and beach (some could need a bit maintennace)
- you have jet ski operators but their part of the beach is seperated
it is not a problem
- The quality of the meals during lunchtime is fine but the neighbours serve good quality
at more attractive rates.
- the breakfast buffet is basic, the cook still can't make a proper omelette, coffee is "not so good " and the service during breakfast is not alwyas with a smile.

Nothing improved, same same as 20 years ago in Thailand in this hotel category, a pity.

The rooms in the bungalows are simple and nice.
Worth an extra THB 500 compared to the standard rooms in the building.

But with an extra bed for ttl THB 5000/night it is far too expesive.

The nightlife at chaweng was spoiled, now the accomodation is overpriced, no good value. We have been many times at samui at various beaches/seasons/hotels.

tip: check nice places without swimming pool

agressive waitress at the breakfast,
no free shuttle to the airport,
all u get from the bar when u order a bottle of water is an agressive "30 baht" (nothing else),
the only smile i got was when i paid the stay....
surely don't go to this hotel if it's your first saty in thailand, it will make you hate the country!!

thanks god they are many other nice place to stay with great service on the island for the same kind of money!
