Anantara Lawana or Chaweng Regent or Sareeraya?

Hello,

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children (9,13,16). Coming to Koh Samui in the summer.

In the Chaweng Regent Beach we already stayed.

We are having difficulties deciding if to come again to that hotel or to try a new hotel.

We would like to be in a walk distance to the center of Chaweng.

We would like a family friendly hotel and we need to book two rooms.

Any advise would be appreciate.

Idit

Hi

Not on your short listed but have a look at either Amari Palme reef ( beach side ), or centrara grand beach resort in south chaweng beach.

I checked Amari, but I am afraid we will be locate in the other side of the road.

We prefer a resort on the beach, so the kids can hang alone .

The Cantera is not a thai style and looks to crowd and big. Am I wrong?

Thanks

Hi, we really like the Centara and it0s ideal for families but if you don't think it's for you then I would check out the Banana Fan as it has a better beach in front than the Regent and is only a 10 minute walk to Central Chaweng

Unfortunately there is no place in the Bananafun.

Any other suggestion or reviews about the hotels I have mentioned?

I think both Anantara and sareeraya might be too confined for your children. But that depends on what you're looking for.

If you're looking for spaces for your children to roam safely in resort compound, great beach, big pool and lots of activities for your children then you can't beat Centara grand beach resort. It tick all the boxes. The resort itself big ( just over 200rooms) but because the grounds is so big you don't actually feels you're on top of each other.

Anantara Lawana was fantastic. I highly recommend it. There we lots of kids there so its definitely family friendly. Lovely pool, lovely food, great service. very luxurious for not too much money.

Very much Thai style too if that's what you are looking for.

Can I ask what kind of room you had?

Are there shops and markets near by?

Thank you very much
