Hi

Mid range ? Can you give roughly price? Midrange for you could be expensive for me or vice versa. When are you going ? Do you want quite beach, mixed or the middle of all things?

Give more details you will get more replies.

Hi, it's important to know your budget but good beach areas are Choeng mon and South Chaweng, check out www.hotelscombined.com www.asiatravel.com and www.sawadee.com to see what's available for your budget in these areas.

agree with Sweetpea...your mid range budget is different for others.

we stayed the southern end of Chewang Beach 2 years ago...a bit quieter but a bit of a walk into the main drag, we walked it with the kids sometimes just getting a tuk tuk one of the ways there or back if anyone was tired. but I loved the walk so much to see on the way

try the hotel websites as they all vary but you may find a bargain somewhere good luck

We've booked Anantara Lawana in North Cheweng for July this year having previously stayed in the Centara Grand in the South Cheweng. Its not in the same price bracket as Four Seasons and in a quiet part of Cheweng with good access, 15 min walk, to the main bars/restaurants etc.

We are currently staying at Nora Beach Resort in Chaweng and love it!! We have a Nora Villa, which is supposed to have a garden view, but we can see and hear the beach from our covered balcony. The villas are so romantic... Enclosed private outdoor entrance with an outdoor shower, high ceilings, wood floors, big jacuzzi tub, and a shower with a glass ceiling. The pool is fabulous and the beach off the resort is quite nice and very picturesque. The water is rather shallow so you can walk/swim pretty far from the shore. The included buffet breakfast has a wide selection of food. The resort also offers a shuttle to and from the town. Certain times are free, others cost 50THB. I would definitely recommend staying here!

What is mid-range?

I have stayed at many hotels on Samui of varying budget, but unless we know what you actually budget it is hard to suggest.

Some might consider mid range £100 a night whilst others might think £25 is pretty mid range!

Even within a star category you have a whole range of prices - four seasons is pretty top end the 5*, whilst the proces at the north of Chaweng that say they are 5* are more like very nice 3* and the price reflects this.

Have a look at the Hansar Samui. Arguably one of the best pools on the island.

Cheers
