New star or Samui paradise

Would like to have stayed at poppies or centara but both booked out for my days in August. Looking at other options. Anyone have ideas about these hotels? Or banana fan? Thanks

HI

New Star is not in Chaweng, its in Chawengs little sister, Chaweng Noi. Lovely beach, a hand full of restaurants, but not much else. You would need to get a taxi or sontheaw to get to much else.

Banana Sea Fan was in a great location, until they bulldozed the shops and restaurants opposite - now fenced off. Its a walk left or right to shops or restaurants. Its only 5mins at the most.

However, Samui Paradise is at the end of Chaweng, and has a good choice of bars / restaurants, and not far to walk to shops etc. This would be my choice!

We booked into Samui Paradise today. Exquisite. Our room is beachfront. Great facilities, great everything. 100% happy. Warm water, powdery sand beach. Have just had a jaunt tonight to view local eateries. Had a seafood dinner at Chaweng walking street - lots of Thai people eating there. Two whole fish, one steamed rice, vegetable stir fry and four watermelon juices - 950baht. 100% happy. Only thing about Samui Paradise is the pool is quite small. Who cares?? The big warm ocean is right there. Lovely place.
