“Lovely breakfast spot”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We only popped in for breakfast but fell in love with Shadys. Run by a very sweet Thai lady, food was dirt cheap and tasty - I assume the price of accommodation was also very low. It's a bit basic but very charming. Location is excellent and the resort opens right on to the beach.

While staying further east in a Bophut apartment, the beach outside Shady fast became our favourite spot both for day time sun bathing and a sunset dip. The stretch here is full of locals during sunset, since it's easily accessed by public road and the swimming is great regardless of tidal conditions. The name is based on the palms here giving plenty of natural shade all day long. If you stay here you have plenty of choise for food in Mae Nam, both cheap thai joints that serve yummy local food and great restaurants even by developed standards like Barracuda. It's also a 5-10 minute stroll past the nearby luxury resort to some chill beach bars.

We decided to check into their beachfront villa for one of our last weekends on the island just to be able to hang out for longer, and the accomodation is great value for the area.

People rave about Silver beach, but this stretch of Mae Nam is my favourite for swimming on Samui. Almost reluctant to say so here, but the Shady deserves some more business.

Room Tip: The beachfront villa has bedroom windows that open up towards the sea. It also has a separate living...

Reviewed 14 February 2013

We hadn't booked anything upon arriving on Koh Samui and stumbled upon this place. We loved it! It sticks out by being the only place on the beach where each bungalow is a different color. Many of them had been completely renovated with new appliances and bedding. The staff (although small) is amongst the friendliest I've experienced anywhere in my travels. You might want to skip eating at the onsite restaurant if you're wanting a classier meal, but great for lunch or mid day snacks. Would definitely go back! Shady....Resort!
