Impiana Resort Chaweng Noi
Ranked #17 of 103 Hotels in Chaweng
Reviewed 28 November 2013

We recently stayed at the Impiana for 9 nights for our daughters wedding ., We upgraded to the most magnificent absolute beachfront deluxe suite, which was perfect. Literally right on the beautiful beach :).

Some of the rooms need a "facelift" and some work done on them , but overall, it was very good.
This resort caters for all ages. My mobility assisted 85 year old mother in law, could not have been helped more by the wonderful caring staff at the Impiana. Even though there are a lot of steps, they were available to help us at an instance if required.
Easy access by the Impiana shuttle bus to Chaweng for shopping.

The wedding was amazing, the flowers were perfect & the food was first class. The Impiana staff were friendly & very helpful in every way.
If there was an issue, the staff would be there as fast as possible to help & rectify any issue. We had a few issues with our air conditioning, which was fixed as soon as reported.
The new beach bar will be amazing when finished just in time for Christmas.
I would not hesitate to return to this absolute beachfront hotel, with all the facilities required for a relaxing holiday .
I will be returning to Impiana Koh Samui for my next Thailand holiday .

Room Tip: choose a seaview room or deluxe suite if you want to be right on the beach

The review might be tainted by the poor weather we had. We booked 6 nights and only stayed 3.
This was mainly due to the poor weather as we decided to cut our losses and move to Krabi. However if the hotel was more comfortable we might have stayed longer.
When we arrived we were given a sea view superior room although you couldn't seethe sea as they were building a new beach bar and when it wasn't raining they were working on this.
The side effect was all the chairs were pushed one end of the beach making it very cramped. There were only 4 loungers at the pool. Not great.
The beds were rock hard and our air con left pools of water on the floor. The rooms were average at best for a 4 star hotel.
On the plus side the food was good, location was ok and I am sure the beach would be a lot more appealing with better weather and no building work.
We got a good deal online but honestly speaking we wouldn't stay again so can't recommend it. Spa was nice and again they had a good discount.

We recently stayed at the Impiana for 8 nights for our wedding and honeymoon, along with 40 of our guests and had a great time. We found the staff friendly and helpful and any minor issues amongst our party (of which there were few), were dealt with swiftly and efficiently.

Unlike many resorts which claim to be 'right on the beach', the Impiana really is right on its own piece of private beach. During our stay there were plenty of sun loungers and chairs available on the beach and at the beach bar. There was also a new beach bar under construction, which when finished looks like it will be a classy addition to an already great hotel. There were Happy Hour's at the beach bar throughout the day with 2 for 1 drinks and cocktails which were great and the breakfasts offered great hot and cold options. The coffee was also really good!

A few days into our stay we had our wedding on the beach and the reception at the restaurant. Having arranged the entire wedding and reception from overseas we were nervous but it turned out there was no need. Sujin, the Director of Food and Beverage at the resort and his staff put on a day that was far beyond anything we could have imagined.

The flowers were gorgeous and beautifully put together (and as a florist I'm a tough critic) and the ceremony and reception looked fabulous. The food was amazing and there was more than enough for everyone to have seconds and even thirds and fourths if they wanted. When the heavens opened later in the evening the staff had everything moved inside at lightning speed and the party carried on seamlessly.

We arranged tours through the hotel which made the entire process really smooth and easy. My Grandmother has trouble getting around, so the hotel arranged a private driver and van for us to create our own tour for her. The total cost for 4 hours was only 3,000 Baht for a van which carried 8 people and we were able to go and see all of the sites at our leisure.

We also made use of the spa while we were there and the treatments were lovely.

The only things that were a slight issue during our stay was the safe had to be opened by a staff member each day and the bathroom was quite smelly. However, having stayed at another resort on the island for a few nights, the bathroom smell seems to be an island issue, not a resort one. It was easily remedied anyway by simply covering the main drain in the floor and keeping the plugs in the sink and bath.

With a party that consisted of honeymooners, families with children as young as 12 months old and even my 85 year old grandmother, the Impiana catered to every guest perfectly.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone who wants to visit Koh Samui, whether for a family holiday or a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 310 which was huge and in a great location overlooking both the pools and the beac...

Having recently stayed at the Impiana Resort in Koh Samui, I can honestly say that this hotel was not bad but could be great.

I stayed in 3 rooms during my stay at the resort, one change was unplanned due to a leaky air conditioning unit.

Room 1: Standard room, clean, large enough for 3 single beds, with a great view of the sea. The only things that we had issue with was the leaky air conditioning unit, and the comment about opened (but untouched) items in the mini bar. As we had not even opened the mini bar the charges felt unfair and forceful (my friend was threatened that they would fine him via the credit card used if he did not comply with the additional charges).
Room 2: After raising the issue of the faulty air conditioning unit twice (over 2 days) we were changed/ upgraded to a deluxe room (next door to our original room). The larger room was very spacious and had a nice balcony facing the ocean/ beach.
Room 3: I was required to stay an additional day in Koh Samui to complete a PADI diving course, and left 1 day later than my friends. This additional day was unplanned and so I checked the cost of a room in the same hotel (mainly for convenience), the price quoted by the hotel was higher than that of a price comparison website ((~1700 baht higher), they were either unable or unwilling to match the price. The 3rd room was much brighter and modern than the previous 2 rooms, this probably ties in with the on-going renovations taking place at the resort. Although the room faced the road the slight noise was not a problem for me.

Staff: The staff at the hotel were professional but rather cold. For me this was not an issue.

Hotel Overall:
-Condition: my general impression was that the hotel was a little aged and this was the reason for the renovations. Any rainfall meant the leaks were appearing in the reception area (they were dealt with sufficiently). I noticed that the pool did not have a filtration system, and was instead filtered over 2 days via an unaesthetic method on an external unit, I pottered to swim in the sea instead of the pool.
-Breakfast: very good selection of food with welcoming staff.
-Meals: I only ate a couple of times at the hotel (out with breakfast), however the food was very nice and filling.
-Location: the resort is situated on a beautiful beach, however any trips into the nearby town should be done via taxi (there is a shuttle bus. But it ran at time that were not convenient for my friends and I), walking the few kilometres is not advisable with the driving sense of the local population and the lack of pavements at points. The local taxis were quite expensive when compared to Bangkok and Chiang Mai, but this is still relatively cheap (£6/ 300 baht, resort to main area of Chaweng).

Room Tip: The renovations should be complete by 2014, hopefully all rooms are completed to the same standard o...

This hotel is right on the beach
Good points - good sized room
beds good
minivan to town nice
breakfast is good
clean - with good housekeeping
Areas of improvement - more seating around the pool, when the jellyfish were in there was not enough poolside area, and the pool is fairly small.
Staff - mainly reception were not great with hospitality. Often no English speaking staff on and there was only one person at the desk that ever smiled at us
Better dinning down the beach for dinner and there is a great little Thai place next door on the beach which provides good food, at local prices
Spa was OK, but the masseurs where not hired for competency.

Overall we had a great stay

Overall it is a pleasant hotel on the beachfront in Chaweng Noi. It is clean and breakfast is a buffet with a variety. The Superior rooms have nice furniture and bathroom fixtures. However, they are not spacious. Our in-room safe broke several times, but was fixed. The light in the built-in wardrobe does not switch off, so must be a waste of electricity.There is a small garden with green grass and a few trees. The pool is not big, but enough to splash around in and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Siam Bay right in front. The floating bar on the seafront is really an eye-sore and, in our opinion, should be removed altogether. It is anchored close to the shore and does not seem to serve a purpose, as there is a proper nice bar right on the beach. In addition, the ropes that hold this reinforced white plastic structure from floating away, are tied to several posts located at the foot of the resort and, thus, are stretched across the beach. At night this is a menace for those who wish to stroll along the beach's water edge. Flood-lights are turned on, so these ropes would be visible, but they do hinder one's movement on a public beach. During the week at the resort we saw this floating bar being used only once by a group of routy clients who apparently thought it was awesome to jump from it into knee-high water. They also put out their cigarettes directly against the platform's floor and had their drinks in 'real glass' glasses. This is unacceptable, as accidents happen, and stepping onto broken glass, would ruin anybody's vacation. We asked the F & B staff why the drinks intended to be had on this floating structure are not served in plastic glasses, but they pretended not to understand and were overall unpleasant to deal with. Our deal upon booking the room included a 20% discount from the restaurant/bar and spa bills, but we did not receive it, as the staff who checked us in neither gave us a voucher or coupon for that, nor briefed us on how to apply this discount. The prices at the spa for massages are very expensive. This spa has a real competitor in the form of a make-shift massage place on the beach next to it which is very busy due to very affordable prices. In general, we had a good time, but hope that our suggestions mentioned above will be considered by the management.

We stayed for 4 nights with my husband and three teenagers after moving from the hotel next door Imperial Samui' as they were full. We loved the Imperial Samui so we were anxious this hotel may disappoint. But no - all was good and we enjoyed our stay. There was a special on so we paid half the price of next door and it was excellent value - 4 star hotel. We had adjoining rooms on the 2nd floor above reception with sea views. They don't have interconnecting doors. The rooms are reasonably small but as the kids had a triple we both ended up with larger rooms. The bathrooms are small but functional. The pool is OK - not a lagoon pool - just a standard one. So guests tend to relax on the beach lounges under the palm trees rather than around the pool. The beach is lovely and wide, nice sand and good for swimming. There is something in the water at Chaweng that nips at you occasionally - but interestingly you get used to it over time. The hotel has lilo's that you can float in the ocean on - very relaxing. The food was great. We ate there several times for lunch or dinner. Breakfast was a standard buffet with most foods available. The food prices are slightly higher than at other restaurants nearby. They have 3 happy hours throughout the day - 2 for 1 at the bar on the beach. Lovely to have a piña colada on the beach. The staff are perfectly helpful but do lack some warmth and friendliness compared to next door. The male staff are better informed and helpful. We hired a car for the day 1500 baht. More expensive than in town but it was worth paying a little extra for the convenience of having the car delivered to us - no hassle. Driving on the island is fine. It's a challenge to go faster than 40 km/hr!! We had a late afternoon flight and they were happy to give us a later checkout from our room. Happy to recommend this hotel. Excellent value for the price we paid.
