We stayed for 2 weeks at the nova samui resort, it was clean and comfortable with a good pool area. Though it's fair to say the hotel is a little dated. It may not suit all as the rooms are all up steps, and the farther away from reception the more steps you have to climb. Before you consider a holiday at chewing, it's worth pointing out it's going through a change. Five years ago it was typical Thailand, but now there is a shopping centre, with new shop fronts going up in the Main Street. The beach has a party bar that blasts out music from 2pm, often we were kept awake by music till well into the early hours of the morning by music from bars that were not even close to the hotel.
But if this is not a problem for you then you will still find great food and hospitality from the Thai people. A good restaurant being the onion and also the orchid. You can get a good breakfast at tropical murphys.
If you wish to do a trip then shop around. We did a trip to an island with kayaking for the day for 1200 baths each, the original price being 1850 baths. Also if you require a taxi from the hotel to town then only pay 100 baht. Before you have a drink in a bar, just check there is no service charge, the Aussie bar will add this to the price of your drink. Good value bars are legends and tropical murphys. If you are a beach goer then be carful about laying on sun beds, the price can vary greatly, we only paid 100baht per sunbed, some will try to charge 300 baht each.
Take English money with you and change a little at the airport, then change money as you require at money exchange kiosks in town, you will get a far better rate. All in all it was a good stay at chewing beach, but don't think we will return due to the pace of change taking place, this has to coincide with the Russian and Chinese tourist now flocking to the resort.
