For those of you not familiar with Chaweng Beach, it's crazy town. A combo of Miami and Bangkok -- including lots of muscle men (where do they come from?) and businesses to service the party crowd (some of these services are not legal in the States). Anyway, The Sarann is as the edge of Chaweng Noi and a bit away from all the craziness of the beach road; however, if you want that stuff, it's a short cab ride away (or walk down the beach). We arrived for New Year's eve but didn't take part in the hotel's strange New Year's party. We went to dinner up the hill (lots of great places to eat just up the street on the way to Lamai), and returned for an unofficial party on the beach. It was awesome! Our room was big and had a partial sea view. The views from the pool and restaurant were amazing. The resort is mostly on the side of the hill with the water directly below -- the beach is to the left (down a few stairs). If you want a 100-percent beach resort experience, this is not the place for you. However, it serves as a good base between the beach communities of Chewang and Lamai. The gym, which I used daily, was small, but well equipped. All and all, not a bad choice for not too much money.
