We love Thailand and the people as we have travelled there many times but this was a sad experience. Dirty rooms, smelling of urine and mould, lacklustre hospitality and 'Garden View Rooms' of dilapidated resorts next door. Our Air-Con didn't work for the first 24 hours and breakfast was a non-event in terms of offerings. The one good thing about...

The hotel is located in the Chawen beach road. The hotel is decorated in Thai style. The front office is helpful. But the room is a bit old with no sunshine. The pillows are high . I used to have low pillows. The room amenities are not that enough. The restaurant is good. The servers are nice.

It's in the heart of the party zone in Samui, walking distance to the famous spots. Rooms were comfortable and spacious, but in my opinion some of the things in the room need to be replaced or upgraded. Overall it's been a good stay.

Right smack at the happening scene of Chaweng minus the noises. Unfortunately the Spa is non existence amidst the name. Pool is pretty small but it's forgiven given the vicinity to the beach. All the deck chairs at the beach will be cleared in the evening and transformed into a cool beach dining area. This hotel is filled with stairs...
