We stayed here for a week and honestly we didn't want to leave!! New Star is an excellent place to relax and discover the beauty of Koh Samui. The resort is simply wonderful ( spacious rooms, beautiful beach and swimming pool, excellent spa ) but what we'll never forget is the kindness of the "always smiling" staff, everybody was so nice but special compliments to the staff of the Pool Bar (Aew is the best!!) and to the staff of the Spa (try their treatments!!). We highly reccomend this place and we'll surely come back!!!

Dear our value guests,

Greetings from the New star Beach Resort Koh Samui.

Many thanks indeed for taking the time to write and shared your satisfaction in TripAdvisor. Such correspondence is always highly motivating our Team but even more so when it comes from someone who has traveled widely and can appreciate the finer points of what we are trying to achieve like you.

I shall take the greatest pleasure in passing on your kind words to the team accordingly.

It is gratifying that our resort played some part in your enjoyment of Thailand and hope it is not too long before we welcome you back to the Land of Smiles at New star again soon, we remain.

Yours sincerely,

General manager

We really enjoyed this hotel. Our room (Palm Room) was comfortable with a bright, airy contemporary feel. As mentioned, the private but "outdoor" showers are really nice. Staff was helpful and accomodating, and assisted us in renting a car for a day. We only had breakfast at the hotel, which was great with lots of variety.

Apparently this hotel has one of the nicest beaches on the island. The plus side is, it was usually pretty quiet. It was a small, pretty beach but nothing spectacular - certainly not worth traveling all the way to Thailand for. I've seen much nicer beaches in the U.S. and of course, the Caribbean.

The hotel is located south of Chaweng "town" so you'll need to take a taxi into the town. Although one night was enough for us - how many souvenier t-shirt shops can you take??

Noticed my review of the hotel was not posted, Management and hotel deserved better then that.
We had a beach front villa, smaller but modern and a couch was suitable for our daughter the plasma tv ( turnable ) offered some privacy but it's really only a large room. bathroom was great, inside and outside shower. Room was new and i walked into the ocean with skype and wireless internet, from our ocean front deck,,, to die for...( made the boys jealous at home -15 C ).
restraunt was good, breakfast buffet was the way to go, pool and lounge food was also great.
Beer was okay price and food was okay as well, close enough to the road to walk to town but take a tuk tuk.
We were happy with our find and would reccomend it.
Also negotiate your room rate... We ended up getting 10K baht of per night as we extended our stay twice.

We stayed one week end of sept. -08 in this hotel with my husband. We enjoyed this week as much as possible, and we thought that this hotel was as close haven as possible. We hardly noticed any contstracions. The beach was beautiful, and empty and pool was perfect. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband had 50`birthday there, and in the evening two members of staff knocked to the door, sang happy birthday to you and brought a choclate cake! What a nice suprise! The hotel is little far away from shops and restaurants, that´s why I woudn´t recomened that for family with teenagers (I woundn´t book that for my whole family), but hotel has free transformation to center of Chawng once a day. But that is same time a good thing; hotel is peaceful.

It is true, that prices are quite high in hotel´s restaurants, but you can eat somewhere else. Breakfast was exelent!

Based on the positive reviews and their brilliant website, we decided to stay at the New Star. However, the stay was a huge disappointment:

1. There is a massive construction site going on next door. Noise during all times. Be aware: this is not a short-term thing, the construction is supposed to continue until 2010!

2. Despite the noise problem, there was no discount for the hotel. They seem to charge the usual rates, which makes it a very bad deal compared to other places on Samui

3. Beach is certainly not great, in fact one of the worst we have seen in Thailand

4. Given the fact that they are trying to be a first class place (and certainly charge for that), it is not acceptable that they don't have a fitness center of any kind

Don't get me wrong, not everything is bad - rooms are ok, people are nice, however it is a very very bad quality for the money you pay, especially given the construction...
